  1. Windows uses special "XP Comment, XP Author, XP Keywords, XP Subject" fields (XP <name>) for presenting the associated information with the Windows File > Properties > Details presentation. After creating an Affinity Photo Exported JPEG file, the previous content of these fields disappear from presentation by Windows. Is there a way to preserve the use of these Windows "XP <name>" properties fields when a JPEG file is edited by Affinity Photo desktop and the image is Exported as a JPEG file (*.jpg)?
  2. Hi! I'm here for the first time! I admire the work on the program and keep my fingers crossed for further development I would like to ask if there is an option in the program or any plugin that would allow me to make a "jitter" effect? Something like shaking in animation. Currently, I draw two pictures and then place them in a video editing program next to each other to get that effect. However, the process of drawing twice the same image is time-consuming. If there was a possibility of moving lines/making jittery/wiggly in in the finished picture, it would speed up my work at least twice #1 Edit: Oh,I am using Windows 10 It's more or less the effect I'd like to get:
  3. What sort of speed should I expect from Affinity Designer? I am used to running Xara Designer Pro 9, which zips along, rarely lagging. Affinity Designer is nowhere near this smooth. See this video for a demonstration of performing similar actions in each application. Notice in AD the zoom takes 4 or 5 seconds to render, where it is instant in Xara. Also while typing the text takes a second or more to render in AD while it keeps up with the cursor in Xara. I understand that the two programs use different methods, but with AD acting this choppily it is almost unusable - even to move a few basic vectors around the screen is painful! I can't work out where the bottle neck lies. I have watched the GPU and CPU graphs both in Windows task manager and using MSI After Burner. I can't get CPU usage of more than 50% nor GPU usage grater than 45% despite the program hanging for seconds at a time as the display struggles to update. My system specs are in my signature. This is by no means a cutting edge machine, but generally handles what I throw at it quite nicely. Judging by the tutorial video I've watched this performance is not normal?! What should I try to remedy the situation?

    AP Win - Bug - Mask to Below

    Hi, it seems to me that the feature "Mask to Below" does not work properly. When I have a layer (B&W) prepared to become a Mask and I do click "Mask to Below" it inserts some corrupted Pixel layer to the layer below :( Thanks Jindra

    Problem with Wacom Tablet

    Hi! I report a problem with the Wacom Intuos Pro M tablet in Affinity Photo 1.6.4.104. Sometimes when I use a brush, the line does not show up, although I can use the "Undo" option. It only helps to restart the application. Yesterday I had to restart 3 times, today two*. Horribly annoying. I have up-to-date tablet drivers (6.3.30-6) #1 Edit *three times
  6. Hello, When opening an image for editing the whole image is rescaled to the top left and placed on a transparent background. Changing the zoom in the navigator has no effect the image is just rescaled again. I have uninstalled Photo with the same result. I then launched Photo with the Ctrl key pressed and reset all the settings still no change. Any suggestions for fixing this are welcome. Kind regards Alex Affinity Photo Ver. 1.6.4.104 Windows Windows 10 64bit

    Selection brush and gradient lag

    I have the trial installed on my Lenovo Ideapad 500 and am seeing a significant lag when using the selection brush tool. I have 16GB RAM but an AMD A10 processor so not sure if that’s the reason. Is there a better setting I should have somewhere? I also notice it’s hard to use the gradient tool due to lag as well. Just curious if I’m the only one wi5 this problem before I go and buy the software.
  8. Win 7 64 bit Same here on Designer V 1.6.4.104. Situation: - 2 Artboards - Mirrored with "symbols" - one curve - **look uploaded files, last save before the circles and freeze followed by cold kill programm - was painting 2 circles with gradient red to blue, over the edge to artboard 2 - copy 2 times - freeze at the third copy *happens one times *dont try again, syncro.afdesign syncro.afdesign
  9. I'm running Affinity Designer 1.5.1.43 on Windows 10 and it is freezing up constantly. About once per minute it'll freeze for maybe 3-4 seconds and then everything goes back to normal. When it freezes Designer will use about 50% of the CPU capacity for the duration of the freeze. I would assume my computer's CPU simply isn't powerful enough, but Designer regularly uses up to 90% of the CPU capacity with no problems. Also this was never a problem before (same computer, same files). It's been about a month since I last used Designer. This problem started last week when I opened it up and updated to the latest version. System specs: Windows 10 64-bit Intel Pentium G4400 3.3GHz dual core 8GB RAM Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 256GB SSD Any ideas what might be causing this? Thanks.
  10. Is there any plan to support iPad mobile / touch interface for Surface (windows) platform?
  11. There's something weird happening on my new laptop, after installing both Photo and Designer almost all application icons have changed into Affinity Photo icons. I have tried to find a solution within windows (delete IconCache.db and reverting default applications to default) without success. It only happens in the startmenu, after the application launches the correct icon shows. Before reverting default applications I had selected to use Affinity Photo as default PNG viewer.
  12. Hi I am currently using Windows laptop and I am planning to switch to MacOS during November. If I buy Affinity now, Can I use the affinity there on the go or am I supposed to pay again ? Thank You
  13. A number of apps allow me to set the font size of the text in the UI (for example menu and other section headings) Is this possible with Affinity? If not how do I request the feature?
  14. I use Linux and I'm planning to setup a Windows LSTB VM. Do Affinity Desktop products run on Windows 10 LSTB? Anyone have experience with Affinity and LSTB?
  15. Hi, My MacBook Pro is pretty much dead, which happened very shortly after I got Affinity Designer causing me to search for a new laptop to use affinity on! I then realized some of the computer reviews say most laptops can't display all of the Adobe rgb colors and Adobe rgb contains the cmyk colors; the laptop I had considered first could only display 60% of the Adobe rgb colors. I had previously just started designing for teespring and redbubble products such as pillows, phone cases, bags, shirts, leggings, etc... One company had me use cmyk colors and the other said they can do rgb/srgb etc.... I also looked into an external monitor that could display full Adobe rgb colors, but figured if it's plugged into a laptop that doesn't display all the colors needed, then it probably would effect the external monitor displaying full colors and the same would happen to a drawing tablet seeing it transmits the screen over/mirrors the laptop display? I went to Best Buy and someone there agreed (about the external monitor and the drawing tablet monitor not displaying full color if the laptop doesn't) who did graphic design and said I should get a iMac 5k screen desktop which is powerful and has the best screen (seeing I'm also into photography and music) as well as an iPad maybe for drawing later. I told that person it seems that iPads and Macs have p3 color which is not the same as Adobe rgb and cmyk, especially in blues, greens, and reds. But they said the Mac would be ok........ I don't want to have to spend a ton of money, but I also don't want to think I'm designing with a certain green and have it print a totally different green even with gamut check on because my screen can't display all the colors it should for designing. What computers or iPads do you use for designing to get accurate colors or recommend any drawing tablets? I really want to be able to draw and have accurate colors! Thank you in advance for all your help!!! I'm so excited affinity Designer just came out on the iPad! Also, I would love a 12.9" iPad pro but don't know how to get a new one cheap or when the next ones will be realeased? I figure this generation would be best because it has the better color and processor for designing. Is the 10.5 really small after a while for designing? A lot of people say they like drawing on it better than drawing monitors for many reasons. Which do you prefer? Also, if I got an iPad, would that transfer or count as one of my operating system devices licenses seeing you can have affinity on multiple devices you own with the same os? Or would I have to purchase affinity again?
  16. Hi! I've been using AD for several months now and in my experience, the export persona is very unstable. If I had not been smashing Ctrl + S vigorously, I had surely lost important work thanks to export persona constantly crashing Designer. I can replicate a kind of crash on both my work and home computer with the attached .afdesign fájl. Go into export persona and try shift click selecting multiple slices. On a different note. Is it enough if I send the explanation with the crash report that AD generates or do you prefer to have it reported here on the forums? muze3-additional-icons.afdesign

    Family sharing

    I have just purchased affinity designer and have a question (well I’ve got ruddy loads actually but hey ho) how do I get Affinity Designer for windows on family sharing? And second cheeky Question, is there a PDF manual for download anywhere. . thanks folks Dave
  18. I have an unconventional setup on my windows machine that seems to trigger unhandled exceptions: One monitor runs on a Geforce GT 440 (1080x1920) and the other one on my Intel I7 2600k integrated graphics (rotated 1050x1680). I have Windows 10 build 1607, intel i7 2600k, nvidia Geforce GT 440, 16GB RAM. Both Designer and Photo crash when moved (or when parts of the UI is moved) to the rotated monitor. I'd be glad to share additional information if needed.
  19. I downloaded the trial yesterday, and while the tablet works fine with photosop, krita and illustrator, Affinity designer does not response to pressure changes AT ALL. I tried reinstalling the drivers, changing the brushes, fiddling with the setting, rebooting, and nothing seem to work. OS: Windows 10 x64 build 1607 desktop Tablet: Huion 1060P (new 8192)
  20. Hello everyone. I am experiencing a problem once I am designing websites. Once I try to create new text frame using text frame tool my Designer just freezes. I can´t do anything anymore. The only thing I can do is shut it down. I would like to get some suggestions on how to fix this issue. Thank you for your time. As well reinstalling helps the problem but once I start designing a new website. And I am a few hours into the project this just happens. I can copy already existing ones and resize those. I just can´t create new text fields.
  21. I was building some fairly large panoramas in Affinity Photo today, pointed AP at 30-40 raw files and sent it on its way. I was working on another (non-AP related) task when my C: drive filled up! I had to scramble to free up some space. Several programs I had started panicking on the low disk space, though I never saw a message from AP. I ended up canceling the rendering of my panos to worry about it later. When I closed AP, several gigs were cleared up on C:. I have a larger data disk that I would prefer to be used for this type of temporary data, but I couldn't find anything in the settings pages that allowed me to change it. Is there a setting for this, and if so, where? Thanks!
  22. In designer i have noticed when selecting fonts for editing , the selection doesn't show on various fonts. Some do and some don't. So you are guessing as to what is selected. Gary
  23. Whenever I doubleclick on a textframe to adjust it to its content, Affinity Designer crashes. This happens mostly in documents with multiple artboards and groups/layers.
  24. I bought Affinity Designer for Windows 10 recently, and was wondering if I can use the product key to also use it on my mac. Can I?
  25. The title says it all. Windows shuts down when I am using Affinity Photo. It happens fairly often. I usually have multiple files open. I have run the diagnostic software and cleaned everything there is to clean.
