How do I download the resource files, please?

 

@Sunset

 

All you should need to do is type the url starting "affin.co/..." given at the start of the chapter into your favourite internet browser and it should automatically download the resources for you.

 

If you have any issues with this, please let us know.

 

Thanks.

Help! You need to add Norway to the list of countries! 

Don't you want my money? ;)

I'm not personally bothered about money but I would like you to enjoy owning a copy of the book. Unfortunately this comment is probably pertinent to you too, as we have delivered to all the countries we are currently set up for with Amazon, our fulfilment centre.

Oh, you all got my hopes up with your tales of next day delivery ;)

Ordered yesterday but it's still sitting on 'Pending' ... ah well, fingers crossed for next week some time!

 

Sorry carolbeck,

 

Welcome (back) to the Serif Affinity forums.

 

Was your order to the same zip/postcode as the billing zip/postcode? We have had some delays for some users and we are just ironing out a few teething problems with our brand new shop. Most orders from the last 2 days where that issue caused a 'pending' order have been processed today. The rest will be processed on Monday.

Thanks for the reply! Yep, same postcode used for billing/delivery/credit card etc. Happy to share order number if it would help identify any issues.

 

Looking forward to receiving the book in due course!

I see. Thanks for the reply.

I hope you can talk to Amazon soon. You deliver to all our neighbour-countries.

Have to love insomnia, working my way through the Affinity Designer Workbook, picking up little things that I hadn't noticed before and finally understanding the purpose of artboards! I've designed three colourways of the logo for my new imaginary company and I am waiting for my imaginary client to choose one and pay me some imaginary money. Imagine is the key word with this new book, it banishes the 'white page" syndrome and feeds my imagination. 

I Imagine you're well chuffed!

I'm itching to use my Amazon gift vouchers to buy it from Amazon.co.uk; but it is out of stock. When will it be available and will I be able to get it with the introductory discount, when it's back in stock?

It is not being sold on Amazon.co.uk as we would prefer to sell it directly. Amazon can set their own prices and obviously take a big cut too.

If it isn't going to be sold on Amazon.co.uk, it seems rather odd that they have this listing for it! :o

It is currently unavailable...! Which explains one strange thing I went to scan my copy into LibraryThings (I was going to say it is my Friday read this week) but it scanned an unrecognisable ISBN - I checked and the sticker over the ISBN on the back of the book was all letters, not numbers. I might still list it as my Friday Read though :D

 

Edit; Job Done  :ph34r:

I wish more countries were added to the list of shipping countries for buying this Workbook. I wish there was a way to buy the 'PDF,Kindle and epub' versions of the Affinity Designer Workbook from Affinity directly.From the sample content,its looking really promising.

So why are we seeing it here?

I think it's just their system, I notice that they never remove obscure old books, either, even though the one copy they had was sold a few years ago, they just keep it there ad infinitum as currently unavailable. :(

Yes, but ... this isn't an old book that they no longer sell, it's a new book that they're apparently not going to be selling!

I agree entirely, but because they deliver it, it is in their system and therefore they "know about it" - and they link their book lists with libraries so that information and cover pictures can be shared, so I think it's just how it works. You disclose to Amazon that a book exists and they log it, in effect.

And it may show up on Amazon as a used book, sooner (if people are disappointed - suppose) or later.

Good Point!

 

It won't be my used book, though, I've just just been browsing through the tutorials/projects and I am amazed at the detail and depth and the care that has gone into this. :)
