still missing help features

Recommended Posts

Incredibly, many things are still missing, like Workspace ⊳Visual Reference (the links in other languages**), this, an index, a glossary, a list of known problems and how to deal with them, thanks (for using, purchasing, reporting, …), …


**in the hidden content text

Why is such an important link for the visual reference (Where is what? What is the naming? Where are context toolbar, personas, …?) still missing for most foreign languages/users?

images/panel_stroke.png is missing in most localisations,  

Are you referring to the Help? If so where are you seeing this is missing?

@Sean P, this screenscast shows an example of a missing graphic object in the online help for German, towards English. Apparently it gets loaded first but repressed (flickering shorty on page load).

https://affinity.help/designer/de.lproj/index.html?page=pages/Panels/strokePanel.html?title=Das Panel "Kontur"

The issue also occurs in the offline/app help:


Offline it is also disturbing that the search keyword seems not to find "stroke panel" in the app help menu > list of found help topics:


Furthermore it appears even not possible to get the offline help in the set app language (EN) but in the system language only (DE) – though the search appears to work for both languages. (There is no language menu in the help.app which could be used as a workaround.)

On more example which, in that case, isn't only missing an additional illustration but its 15 fundamental panel descriptions 'A' – 'I', too.
(regardless of the selected Affinity app Designer/Photo/Publisher)



This example chapter "Swatches Panel"  shows the panel graphic + description only in the 2 English versions, none of the 8 not-English languages shows the content in the help article. (again, regardless of the selected Affinity app Designer/Photo/Publisher)

I thought I had mentioned this before, but I’ll mention it (again?) here while I think of it! ‘PT-BR’ is identified as ‘Portuguese Brazilian’: it should, of course, say ‘Brazilian Portuguese’.

’Chinese Simplified’ is OK, but it would perhaps be better as ‘Simplified Chinese’.
