The WMF export is not working. When exporting a WMF file the program creates a PDF file and replaces the file format from PDF to WMF.

And is there a chance that the program gets an EMF export?

Love this update. My gripes with some things like sluggish element selection and RGB Hex color pasting were fixed and everything seems to be working fine enough that I'm using it for a real world task. 

 

EDIT: Actually, upon further using the RGB Hex panel, the problem still persists I made a separate topic for it.

Started AD told me to down load the new version. chrome just went to a black screen, and no down load. So down loading from here instead. Question:

Do I have to uninstall the current version before installing this latest version, or will it change everything in the install?

The installer should uninstall the previous version.

Hi there,

been a serif customer for donkeys years and have copies of a lot of your programs.

 

My question is, are the updates cumulative, meaning does it matter if you miss one of them

and load the newest straight over the version that you have?

 

Kind regards,

 

Georgielaa

I'm currently on 1.05.04 and kinda hesitate to update, after reading some of the comments. But since AD keeps crashing when editing text (change font type), I guess I will have to update then. May 1.05.05 be stable. 

 

Update :

Installed 1.05.05, still crashes when editing text (change font type)

thanks for the new release!

I have two problems in using AD.

 

1. I can't find any way to set a keyboard shortcut to the "color picker tool" in "Draw persona"

2. I'm using the Chinese language .and when I click on the "view--studio--assets",the AD just crashed.

 

Thanks for your works again!

I can't wait to buy the final release of  AD for win!

Alfred, thank! Sorry, I did not immediately understand the structure of this forum, and my English is not that what I would like.

 

There is more trouble in the program: the font is lost.

Hi mark, I finding an issue regarding shortcut keys that involves the usage of numeric keyboard. for example zooming to fit, actual size etc... its working only if using the number key below the function keys, it does not execute the shortcut commands when using the dedicated numeric keypads on the right side of the keyboard...
