So this week was much more quiet than the previous month. I had my first visit to a laundromat in over 40+ years; that was an experience I’d rather not talk about (LOL). I started re-working something I started as a digital greeting card and I also started working on my dads birthday card, a first for me (not waiting until the last minute to start a project).

The best part of the week was Thursday as Affinity (Serif) released version 1.9 of all 3 programs (Photo, Designer, and Publisher). My most wished for feature was included in this version – being able to save my “Workspace”. Yes, I know it has been available in a wide range of programs, but for some reason it wasn’t implemented in Affinity’s software. Now I can save a workspace for digital mixed media pieces (Photo), for greeting cards (Designer), and digital planner (Publisher).

Another cool feature is being able to sync your purchases amongst all (Affinity) programs and platforms (Mac, iOS, and/or Windows). Purchases are any assets bought through the Affinity store – fonts, brushes, textures, etc. This feature is only available once you register your program on whatever platform(s) you use; you also got to download new, *free* assets for all 3 programs.

Time to get back to work on my dads birthday card as I have 2 more to create for birthday’s this month. Thank you very much for visiting.  Stay safe and healthy.
