Hi there!  I'm Shelly!  I have been following this bundle of software around since at least 2018, but wasn't able to buy it until in 2020 when they had a sale, then of course, I got the V2 bundle last year.  I'm mainly a digital painter, and I am hoping the Affinity products will have more updates geared illustrators in the near feature!  So far, this software is wonderful for photo editing and vector illustrations!  Keep it up guys!

Bonjour la "team" 😂 
*** je fais celle qui est branchée alors que je suis nulle en Anglais (mdr) - mille excuses pour les anglophones ***
Déjà un grand merci 🙏 à Steve qui me permet enfin après une suite d'échanges de mail de rentrer dans ce forum, ça marche - youpi. 
Reste à trouver comment changer mon avatar pour personnaliser un peu mon espace... n'hésitez pas à m'aiguiller.😜

Pour les présentations, après une très longue carrière solo en qualité de Directrice Artistique, j'ai fais le choix de développer mon potentiel artistique et de vivre de mes créations... qui ne sont pas toutes numériques parce que bq trop curieuse pour me contenter de ce seul moyen d'expression.

Néanmoins j'ai conservé la CS6 avec l'OS Sierra jusqu'à ce que mon mac me lâche après 15 ans de loyaux services pour me tourner comme bq vers Affinity. Alors oui gros changement entre l'OS et la suite Adobe j'ai du pain sur la planche... et donc je cherche mes marques, mais déjà une critique  😂   😂   😂   😂  pour Affinity Designer - pas d'export en format DXF ? j'espère que la prochaine mise à jour va régler ce soucis là car c'est dommage d'être obligée de passer par un convertisseur. 

Allez bonne journée à tous

Bonjour Yulunga

 

Accueillir. pourquoi as-tu absolument besoin de dxf ? Vous pouvez également utiliser DWG ou SVG pour exporter.

Bonjour, 

Parce qu'importer en DXF est gratuit pour le logiciel qui pilote mon matériel et SVG payant et que le DXF me va très bien
Toutefois et j'en suis pas encore là, si Designer ne conserve pas ou du moins qu'en partie mes caractéristiques de mes nombreux fichiers en DXF,  je vais devoir en effet reinvestir... 🥵 l'idée étant que je gagne du temps pas que j'en perde dans des conversions de fichiers qui peuvent en plus s'avérer incorrecte.

Au plaisir, Yulunga

Hi, I'm Matt Priestley and I'm one of the Affinity developers. I'll try to help out on any topic, but particularly anything relating to tools, views and document drawing as they're the bits I'm mostly responsible for writing.

 

Feel free to join me and introduce yourself, too! :)

Hi I have  just [purchased Affinity and trying to get to grips with it.   Although I have brought up the Photo Persona I cannot do the same for the Raw Development one.  Also on downloading it  has come through as an exe file.   Is this okay.

@Helen Herbert

I suggest that you ask your questions in the questions forum (but yes the EXE is fine, and RAW development is for RAW files)

Hi everyone, 
I'm Malgosia. I am located in Vienna, Austria. I have been using mostly Affinity Publisher to design my notebooks and journals which I publish on KDP Amazon.  I love the software and I am aware there is still so much to learn. 

I am still considering upgrading to the new version. I would appreciate your opinion on this matter.

If anyone can help please... I strike a text box in publisher but cannot make multiple columns as the menu is greyed out. I have re-installled the app to no avail. What can the problem be? I am working on an older Imac running  10.9 (Mavericks). It did work when 1st installed.

This topic is for introductions, not for product usage questions. It would be better for you to post a new topic in the appropriate Questions forum.

Hi, I am Jan from Czech Republic. I am working for more than 20 years in advertising studio using Adobe soft for all that time. As their pricing politics after CS6 became unacceptable for me, I am still working with CS6 and because of it I have stuck on Mac OS Sierra. I have been thrilled when I heard about Serif's developing a serious alternative also to InDesign (Publisher). And I have bought Affinity V1 as well as V2. Unfortunately Affinity V2 don't support such old Mac OS version I am still forced to run on, so I am unable to run Affinity V2 simultaneously with Adobe CS6 to have good conditions for comparing and testing both apps to get know if Affinity (mainly Publisher) is on such level allowing me to leave Adobe (mainly InDesign). I had to install another HDD with Win10 where I can make my tryouts and tests in Affinity V2. From several testing works I have discovered, that full transition is still too "risky" for me (and partial transition is impossible due to OS incompatibility). However I deeply hope, that moment of my complete transition to Affinity is getting near.
I wish Serif team good luck in developing such difficult piece of software (as Affinity apps are) and looking forward to the day I will start use it for serious work.

Hi ik ben Ina en na jarenlang mijn kaartspellen te hebben ontworpen in Picasa (ja echt, Picasa!) heb ik een upgrade gemaakt naar Affinity Publisher. Ik heb een online cursus affinity Photo gedaan, waarna ik toch gekozen heb voor Publisher. Ik leer iedere dag weer iets nieuws, maar loop ook tegen heel veel dingen aan natuurlijk. Maar ik ben echt zo blij met dit programma. Ik heb hulp nodig, en wie weet kan ik iemand anders ook hulp bieden.

Tot ziens, groetjes van Ina uit Nederland

Hi, my name is Sreng Pagna. I am from Cambodia. I am new here. After trying affinity photo 2 for almost a month, I feel love it, and decided to have it. Hope to learn something from the forum and also hope affinity photo will improve unicode fonts more because some fonts in my language are not supported. ❤️

Hello everyone, 

I am Malgosia (Margaret) from Vienna. I have been using Affinity software for over two years. I make Low Content Books and find both Affinity Publisher and Designer great. They make designing so easy. This year I would like to advance my skills. Maybe you can suggest good Affinity courses for me? I am very happy to be part of this community.

Hi everyone, I’m Rajesh, an aspiring creative marketer. The first thing I bought from Serif is the Affinity Designer 2. So far, this has proven to be one of the best investments I've made in my lifetime. As I use Designer 2, I look forward to giving feedback and improving this software to make it more accessible for everyone. And just so you know, I have already been spreading the word about Affinity within my circle. Glad to join you all!

Hi, I'm Richard,

My wife and I use affinity photo, we are beginer users, so have some learning to do.  We used to use Serif Photoplus back in the day.  We hope to find some helpful hints and tips on this forum, and may come on here if we are struggling with something.  We look forward to being part of the forum.  We are both keen on Astro photography, and my wife likes a wide variety of other photography genres including urbex, wildlife and landscapes / cityscapes.

Hi Richard, and welcome to the forum. I was also a great fan of the Serif range, and I found Affinity Photo to be easier to use. I'm not in your league as a photographer, but I do have to turn my 'snaps' and supplied images into eye-catching illustrations for events on a charity website, and I use Photo to do that every day (It's a huge website!). Enjoy the forum and the videos and using Affinity!   Hilary.
