  1. Hi, do I miss something or is this a known Bug? The "hyphenation" for German does not work. If I fill the text box with English sample text and switch to English the "hyphenation" is working. Do I need to download some language Packs for that? I have got the latest stable Version installed //
  2. Axis editing handles are displayed opposite from what is chosen (Publisher v1.7.1). See attached images. When 'Show axis editing handles' is checked -- the handles are not there. When 'Show axis editing handles' is unchecked -- handles are visible. Expected behaviour would be the opposite, of course. Also, one can notice that the grid (gray) is off, not aligned with the handle or page corner. That is another issue, always happening here when non-uniform grids are used, but already reported elsewhere. Perhaps this issue is sorted out in the newest beta? I did not have time to check...
  3. [Last exception 2100 in PDF_clip]["Function must not be called in 'page' scope"] Error happens on both x1a and x3. X4 (and normal PDF) works fine. I believe I know the problem - transparent images. x4 supports transparent images, but x1a and x3 doesn't. I need to export to either x1 or x3 for my print-on-demand provider. Can we flatten/rasterize any transparent images with page background so we can have a x1 or x3 compliant PDF? I'm using PNG files with transparencies as linked resources. thanks
  4. Hey guys, documentation says, that alt + rmb drag changes size and opacity of the brush. Unfortunately I cannot get this working. Thanks for your effort!
  5. I import PDFs from other's sometimes and modify them to fit my needs. I have Publisher on both PC Win10 and iMac. On the PC, when I'd import a certain PDF, it would crash. So I decided to try it on the mac. This error is regarding the mac ONLY. Opened the file fine, did a mod, then went to export to pdf for print. I've attached what it should look like and the second shot after I exported to pdf for print. It's like the text is in some other language. Please forgive me for not being as knowledgeable as others on this item. Thank you.
  6. Hey all, I've been running the trial version for the past week and I have to say, I'm very happy with the overall results I get out of this software. Easy, intuitive and perfect for web illustrations. Though I've been running into a problem those past days : I use a 2 in 1 laptop (Lenovo Yoga 920) in tablet mode to draw stuff. And whenever I do, things get funky : either the pen loses calibration completely and appears at a random position below where the pen actually is, or all functions get disabled. Not only in Designer, but on everything else. I can only draw stuff in Designer's working zone, but it's completely unresponsive in other programs or just to navigate windows. I can use my fingers just fine, but if I want to draw stuff in photoshop or use my pen as a mouse, I have to restart the computer or reinstall the driver. Not the most convenient. Could someone give me a hand on this one ? Thanks !
  7. I can view my image with the builtin photo app. But when I opened it in affinity photo. It appeared as cropped. Also there's a white line on the left edge. Is this a bug? PC Version: Win 10 1809 ( Build 17763.379 ) Affinity Photo Version: File Format: DNG Properties show in Affinity Photo: 6028x4024px, 24.26MP, RGBA/32 (HDR) - RAW
  8. Look at the gif (animated): both strokes show a size of 0.2pt but you can see the size slider move as I select on or the other line and obviously they're not the same size.

    LUT Problem [SOLVED!]

    I don't know if anyone else figured this out already but; When you try to export LUTS in Affinity Photo you export them, and when you put them back into Affinity they have the opposite colors. Well I figured that two opposites would look the same. I exported the LUT and then opened the LUT I just exported and exported the opened LUT as a second LUT. It turned out to have the exact same edits as the previous edit. I don't know if any of that made any sense but there you go. If it didn't make any sense you can watch my youtube video:
  10. Hi there, I see there are fields (or "placeholders" as I call them ) for "Page Number", "Next…" and "Previous Frame Page Number", but there's no field for a self-updating "Total Number of Pages", so one easily could add something like "Page 1 of 10", "Page 2 of 10", and so on, to the document. Also it would be nice to have some fields for time values (current date: day, month, year, current time: hour, minutes, seconds... with or w/o leading zeros). Those could update on save or export.
  11. UPDATE: SOLVED! I looked over the log files myself (I was only dimly aware of them as a useful thing before yesterday evening). I found an error message within. "...OpenWithProgids Verify that you have sufficient access to that key" It turned out I didn't, so I fixed that, and have successfully installed both Designer and Photo. Not only can I now work with the lovely Affinity toys, I can troubleshoot, too. Cheers! Hi, I've been trying off and on to install Designer (and Photo) to my Windows 10 computer, with no luck. I've read the forums and applied these successful-for-others fixes so far: Clean boot Create admin account to try install. Nope. Runtime Update (did that) Making sure I'm running 64 bit Windows: Yes, I am. Make sure of .NET version. Yes. Ran troubleshooter, checked compatibility settings, tried running in various compatibility modes, all failed. The troubleshooter said that Affinity Designer is incompatible. I have DirectX 12, and Windows 10 Pro, 16GB RAM, Intel CORE i7, 160 GB free of disk space on a Cintiq Companion 2. Help! I LOVE Designer on the ipad Pro, I want to use it and Photo on my PC!
  12. 1. Hi. How i change the (Page / Artboard Background Gray Scale). The option from UI not working in 1.6 or 1.7 beta. Is still White. 2. Is possible to swap colors by KeyBoard. Is hard to erase a pixel if i have a transparent color selected.
  13. 1. When exporting for iOS, when creating a slice from a layer, the slice will have 1 px more on the H and W. Very frustrating and slowing down my workflow. Should fix. 2. When scaling an object, corner radius and shadown offsets don't scale along with everything else. Should add this functionality like you did "scale with object" on strokes. Thanks guys!
  14. I imported a collage I made from an PSD file. This contains many pictures as layers with different sizes and orientations. Now I want to switchover with that project to Publisher. The imported document looks exactly the same as in Photoshop which is very nice. The pictures are now layers of Type "Pixel". I want to convert them to layers of type "Picture Frames" or "Image" so that I can replace it's pixel content with the original images for better quality. The "Layer" -> "Convert to Picture Frame" option is disabled. How can I achieve that?
  15. Dear developers, I tested these steps: - open a picture in AP - select File menu -> Edit in Designer... - open in Designer, and switch to Photo as same trick: File -> Edit in Photo... - I cannot close AP or AD, because I get a window:
  16. Hello, Can I use Filler text for multiply places? And once only? Because now if select Filler text, then add to many times, but I need only one time, no more. And on second page at twice (like a paragraph). Can I use fill text like I want? Or create multiply text boxes, and fill thats only? I used one textbox for book formatting, but I tried modelling with more header with more filled text.
  17. The so called "Arrow Tool" is a arrow in two directions. I also would need an arrow that points only in one direction. I try to solve that with an asset for now.
  18. Hi I'm having some real issues trying to use brushes and saving styles. All I am trying to do is create a rectangle, set the fill to transparent and apply a brush to the stroke. Then I would like to save this as a new style. So far, I haven't been able to do this. The application freezes either when selecting the brush or when trying to access the style panel. I then have to force close the application. I have already tried holding CTRL when starting the application and resetting everything. That seems to allow me to select the brush without crashing. But it will still crash at the style panel. I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the application but no changes there either. Any other suggestions? I don't remember if I've ever tried to use this feature on this device, so I don't know if it worked previously.
  19. Is there a way to disable spellcheck, or at least the wavy lines in Designer?
  20. Does anyone happen to know of an equivalent of Photoshop's "Layer Mask from Transparency" function in Affinity Photo? It converts the transparency of a layer to a layer mask, and removes the transparency from the original layer. In PhotoLine this is achieved by creating a new layer mask based on alpha. In Gimp there's the option to transfer a layer's alpha channel to a layer mask when a new layer mask is added to a layer with transparency. To be clear, this function removes the transparency from the original layer, and transfers the alpha channel data to a layer mask. It's a very basic option, and ought to be possible somehow in Affinity Photo, but so far I haven't been able to figure out how to accomplish this. Help is very much appreciated: I've been fiddling around for an hour now, and it's probably so obvious that I am looking past it.
  21. Consistent problem, I can copy the object once inside the 'open in' dialogue but if I press save image it crashes the app. Strangely it's just a circle with a conical gradient I'm using for sketching in another app. I've attached the file for others to try. I'm on an iPad Pro 10.5" running the latest iOS 11.4.1. There's also a video showing what happens. Radial Brushed.afdesign IMG_0034.TRIM.MOV
  22. Designer upgrade had become useless to me because of very frequent freezes. I thought it might be due to tracing over halftones, but freezes continued even in simplest files. Usually it was possible to regain control over the computer after time past or by clicking on the task manager tab below. I never found any relief until downloading downloading and installing the Beta version which I installed separately to my regular Designer. The Beta solved all of my problems which apparently were caused by a bug that appears when using a drawing tablet. I hope that anyone else searching for a solution can find this solution since having a working Affinity Designer is becoming very important to many of us.
  23. I'm sorry if this is an obvious question but I simply can't figure out how to select nodes on a path in any way other than the rectangular selection. If I want to more precisely select nodes (eg, with a more freehand selection or through multiple selections), how can one do that? For example, how could one select only the 'E' in the attached example?
  24. Coming from another RAW developer programme I have been used to being able to hover the pointer over a slider and using the mouse wheel to adjust that slider. I find it gives more precise control. That doesn't happen in Affinity Photo by default. Can it be made to do so?
  25. I seem to be able to get Affinity Designer stuck 100% of times when: - Select the Art Text Tool - Click an existing Art Text Object, which will select it and allow me to type in it. - Press Esc (I just wanted to select it, not change it) - Press Copy so I can copy the object, not the text. - Affinity will get stuck in an endless beach ball with CPU usage and heat going crazy high. Cheers!
