When I'm Placing an image, AP is saying 'Image Policy - Your document contains a large amount of embedded image date. Would you like to link your images to reduce the document size?'

While this is very kind, I'd rather say no in the instance where I'm working. But then it keeps asking me this question every time. Can I turn it off? It would be helpful also if AP offered a checkbox that says 'Use the same answer next time'.

Thanks!

When you create a new document there is the option "Image Placement Policy" where you can select "Prefer Embedded" or "Prefer Linked".

Dave is on Windows; I am on a Mac. However, the Image Placement Policy you refer to is available in Publisher, but it is not available in Photo. I can confirm (at least on my Mac) that placing an image into a document in Affinity Photo results in the Image Policy question that Dave refers to, and does not appear to be something that can be shut off.

It is available in Photo Beta on Windows, during File > New.

In Windows PC version I set 'Prefer Embedded' in a New document then did a Place. I still got the original question coming up, asking if I'd prefer to link as it's all pretty big. It's nice to be asked once, but not all the time. I just want to be able to switch this 'nag' off.

Perhaps what is missing is a Document/Properties panel, which lists attributes of the document, from Policy to pixel size. This is handy in itself. Then have buttons off to do things like resize and change policy.

The Resource Manager is also missing. It's only in Publisher.

I'm not sure that Serif intends for Photo and Designer to support linked files, other than the extent needed for compatibility with Publisher's .afpub files. But someone from  the Affinity team would need to comment on that. But clearly part of the processing for linked files is there, and part isn't. As we're working with a beta we can't be sure whether more should be present, or more should be missing :)
