Is it possible to update file and reflect changes in AD?

Recommended Posts

I'm working in AD and drag in a pdf/image, and add design work on top.


I am then sent a new updated pdf/image with same name/specs. Is it possible to automatically replace the old image/pdf file used in AD with the new file keeping the overlaid design in place?

Hi Lee,


Thanks for the reply thats what my own conclusion was finally. 

Coming from a video background where we use proxies and switch them out at the end I was wondering if it could be done here!

Could that be a potential useful feature request do you think? I guess it would be like a ''live document''.

Hi Den,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Currently we only support embedded files as you discovered, but linked files will also be supported in a future version (it will be probably introduced with Affinity Publisher).
