Hey there,

 

I think it would be useful to have different subforums for bugreporting for each software.

At the moment, e.g. bugs for AD and AP are both reported in one subforum although there are even subforums for Bugs on Windows and Bugs on Mac. One level more would give a more clear/tidy overview.

 

Greetings, Johannes.

Hi Johannes,

 

Welcome to the Forums :)

 

This is something that has been suggested a few times in the past we are looking at improving the Forums in the future :)

 

Thanks

Please separate AP and AD as well. Especially since I do not have or use AD, I personally prefer just have see topics related to AP.  B)

Well, that's exactly what I requested ;) Or do you mean to have complete seperated main forums?

A major drawback to making separate forums is there is considerable overlap in the tools, features, & code base of the two apps. Many things apply equally well to both apps on both platforms. This ranges from fundamental concepts like layers, masks, & Personas to features like UI customization, the vector shape tools, snapping, grids & guides, & almost everything regarding text handling.

 

In fact, since both apps on both platforms share the same native file format, it is possible to open & edit an afdesign file created on Windows in Affinity Photo on a Mac, an afphoto file created on a Mac in Affinity Designer running on Windows, & so on.

 

So among other things this means that some bugs will be common to all four apps, some to one platform but not the other, & some to just one app but on both platforms. It also means that many of the techniques discussed & assistance offered here will be useful regardless of which app or platform people are using.

A lot of true stuff I didn't thought about. But to be honest: I read multiple solutions to some problems now - just to realize soon afterwards, that it was just for AD when I was searching for a solution in AP. Confuzing Interwebz! Because most of the times, it is very very specific to a feature only on program has at the moment.
