Hey there, I'm trying to create custom presets for certain size documents/images I need to make again and again to save setup time. This is what's happening:

1) Create New document, panel opens, choose Presets and choose Create preset.

2) Name preset

3) Change size and settings how I want them

4) Click Ok to save it (when I do this the document panel flashes once and for a second I notice the preset name changes back to "Custom" and then the panel goes away)

5) Once the blank document appears I click "Document Setup" to check that the settings are correct it shows "Print" as the type and "Custom" as the page preset. When I change this to "Presets" as the type and choose my named preset as the page preset, as it should show, it changes the document settings back to what they were when the New Document panel opened.

It seems like as soon as you name the custom preset it saves whatever settings are already populated in the panel from the last document that was opened. I figured out that I need to change my settings first then make a custom preset and name it for the settings to stick. The way you have the panel laid out it makes sense to work from top to bottom and clicking ok to would save all these changes.  Is this a bug?

 

The second thing is why doesn't the document setup show the Named preset that I created? It always defaults to "Print" as the type and "Custom" as the preset.

Please let me know if I'm missing something or if this is a bug!

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

The proper sequence of actions is:

  1. Define the document settings you want to use (ignore the preset name).
  2. Then click on New Preset to save them in a named form.
  3. Name the preset.

Then it is in effect for the current new document when you press OK, and for future documents.

When you click New Document it should default to the last document settings you used.
