Introducing... Affinity Spotlight

 Share

Recommended Posts

@KateM for more colors into this marvelous growing ecosystem, I would suggest the web team also consider to build an affinity app for both Mac and Windows (desktop/phone/tablets) 

 

See, browsing the web using web browsers is fine but when they fail or get slow we also fail with also,  design softwares eats a lot of memory and web browsers also but apps can do less than that. 

 

I believe a dedicated app is a great thing aswe are more in a mobile generation/world. 

 

From that one place we should :

Access the forum

Received news alerts

Browse spotlight and even more. 

 

Don't know one have the same proposition or if it pleases to gents here but me I think "everything from the same place" is a good thing. 

It will help close my webbrowser saving more memory and just read the feeds as they are released in the network (only content I follow and subscribe to, not everything) 

Never be the Same Again !

you all should have spent your time working on designer than wasting time on that. designer is still not up to mark you all are killing designer with all that wasting. 

 

@seanb

Those people who worked on Affinity Spotlight are not the same as those who work as programmers for AD. No programming time was wasted. Please do not mix things up.

If you are answering in response to my post, I do not oppose to your statement that things are missing in AD. This is up to everyone's own workflow and needs.

Cheers,

I just had an idea! Why don't the posts about the failings of designer GO INTO THE DESIGNER FORUM (or Designer beta as appropriate)? Search first to see if anyone has already pointed out the issue and add to it. If not then create an issue that others can verify and support

 

Dominik was just letting you know that it was different people working on Spotlight, marketing people

 

So get your issues into the correct forums so they can be addressed

This is an excellent Resource covering affinity products and beyond. I just want to suggest that since this is the beginning of curated content on Affinity Spotlight and the content provided here is likely to grow,would it not be nice if an additional feature is added in the future where in we can download Article(s) by categories,Month,year wise etc. in to a single consolidated pdf file for offline reading?. Keep up the good work.

Kate, I cannot access any of the articles in Spotlight, when I click an article, the "about" or "contact" buttons I get the following message from Safari. Any ideas why?

Hey @MLY75415 ,

 

Can you confirm what version of Safari you are using and if you are on macOS, iOS or Windows? I believe you can only get/use an old version of Safari for Windows so it might be that which is causing the issue...

Are you using a firewall—if so, which? Have you checked the exceptions?


Are you using any plug-ins for Safari? If so, could you list them, please?

 

Finally, have you tried any other browsers to see if they can get access? It might help us narrow down if it is simply a browser issue or something deeper.

Please consider implementing an RSS feed.

Are there any news about a possible RSS/Atom feed implementation? I think for the beginning a simple feed listing any new article including it's title (not the content) would be enough.

Thank you @retrograde for the tutorial. It's great!

And I like Spotlight – it's a good idea and I'm looking for more content there.

Thanks! Yes I think Spotlight is a great place to see a broad range of what people are getting up to with Affinity's apps. :-)

Is there any chance to get some kind of website similar to Bēhance where we could post our creations made in Serif's software?  It would be good advertisement for Affinity products, if people could keep their portfolios there. It could be made as a section on Affinity Spotlight page. Just an idea.
