Affinity has now become officially cross-platform with the launch of Affinity Designer for Windows.

Not much of a problem but the language chooser is still visible during install.

That's great news !

 

2 questions :

- Can I install it on several computers like the Mac version ?

- Will there be a bundle with photo to buy both at the same time ?

 

Thanks !

 

Yes you can install on several computers you personal own like the Mac. Commercial use is more restrictive but also the same as the Mac.

 

We don't have any plans for bundles at the moment. This will change for volume licences in the future.

Does that mean 5 non-commercial / 2 commercial? Also, is it possible to de-register a PC and transfer the licence to a new machine without affecting the total count, e.g. if a PC is trashed and replaced?

Three main questions:

 

Does it export correctly text layers to PSD now (not as rasterized layer)?

Does it support smart objects?

Does it allow to change interface font size?

Does it allow to change color of layer/group in layer panel?

So I will be able to install it on my new pc when I get it?

Purchased ! ..

 

however I am wondering that you released it .. it's not really bug free yet.  I still have both most annoying bugs that I have and also I didn't used it much since I realized It's broken inside the symbols code ... I didn't wanted to risk loosing or damaging my work.

 

From what I have seen in the above comments it looks like I will get free updates until V2 .. so that's great .. fix me If I am wrong.

 

I hope you fix the symbols feature soon so I can continue working on my document.

 

Also I have this weird random lags .. I think It have to to something with my scene .. I have 8 huge artboards in the Full HD width and like 10x more height.

 

So maybe you didn't know about this since most of the guys who had beta didn't really make anything bigger yet ...

 

But you will eventually have to deal with it as the people will start to do actual work with it.

Where is my Grade kit?

Don't see it in my user shop profile.

 

Look at the confirmation e-mail carefully. At least in spanish, the link to download the Grade Kit is only a point. Maybe a mistake with translation:

Su kit UI y packs de pinceles están disponible para descargar desde

 

Mira bien el e-mail de confirmación. Al menos en español, el link de descarga del Grade Kit es sólo un punto. Quizás un error con la traducción.

Yes I believe so.

 

Without explaining this ON THE SCREEN, you are going to lose an enormous number of sales. I almost gave up and only then decided to check this forum out.  Otherwise you are just going to sell your product to people who enjoy solving cryptic puzzles.

That should be great, indeed. Because that's the way it worked.


You'll never know what you can do until you get it up as high as you can go!

Hi guy's! So is the final beta testing period for Windows Affinity Designer now over and ready to go? This kinda caught me by surprise. I thought the initial launch date was after the New Year. Thanks!

Hi iseebadpixels,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

1. No, this will be implemented later as it's requires quite a lot of work.

2. No, currently it doesn't support smart objects.

3. You have to use Windows scaling options to change the size of the elements of the interface.

4. No.
