  1. I see it now. Great to know. Thank you!
  2. I would love to be able to make titles like this fake impossible 3D look with the help of guides/grids built in the program. I don't mean changing the geometry but at least have the option beyond the isometric look. Thank you.
  3. Thank you for the suggestion but this is not it. This is a link about Inkscape and how to create a 3D cube. This link describes what I would like, but better, in Designer one day. http://goinkscape.com/how-to-draw-a-rubiks-cube-in-inkscape/#respond After some searches in the forum my wish or something similar is a very popular request, and has been for years. While waiting I will use Inkscape when needed.
  4. This is why I use Inkscape for basic perspective transformations, svg back and forth. Also why not add a macro option for Designer something like the one in Photo. Record every step. Instead of rebuilding the logo because of a name change, simply change the name and apply the same macro, get the same look. Done.
  5. Then there is no need to create a thread in the question forum. My suggestion is to create a non isometric cube and a sphere as more options in Grid and Axis Manager. Thank you.
  6. I was posting here because it is impossible to recreate (easily) with guides the perspective the email is advertising. It is not isometric, that's why I suggested to go beyond the isometric grid in the thread title. I will ask in the question forum. Thank you.
  7. I got an email from Affinity. This image was included. It would nice if someone could point me to a tutorial recreating this image. How to set guides is what I am looking for.
  8. I asked for the same request, almost, in thread I created to have guides you could define yourself (old movie posters with fake 3D style lettering as an example). I simply hope when this is implemented it will be as epic as the rest of the Affinity Suite. Maybe because everything is so flat looking, the demand is not an emergency?
  9. 3, 5 point perspective guides, curvilinear perspective, etc.
  10. Follow up. is 'stable'. Only had 2 crashes since my last post. Pushed 800+ files with 20 steps macros and it was fine. it is impossible to reproduce the crashes. I don't know if batch processing is been used a lot by Affinity users, but when you need to manage multiples macros, it is getting very tedious to reload macros over and over again when you start a new batch job. That's a separate problem I'll suggest in the appropriate sub.
  11. I ran a very small batch job, less than 20 images. Twice. Crashed both times. After that I started recording some macros. 2 different macros. Crashed after I saved the second one. I can't tell what's triggering the crashes. That never happened on 1.6, batch running 300+ images on the same system.
  12. I've decided to re download the app and re install it. To my surprise I saw there was another update, .380, instead of my original .367. So far so good. No crash It is too bad Affinity doesn't push for updates alert within the app. Is there an option for this to happen? Is there a page I need to bookmark to find out what's up? Thanks.
  13. A little update. I rebooted my Windows machine. No background apps running. I programmed a couple of macros. After a while, idle, Photo crashed. I got the Crash report alert from Photo after the first crash. I did the Beta 1.7 and never had any crash problems. Thanks.
  14. I just installed both Photo and Designer. Not a major bug more like a visual annoyance. Designer keeps the old look on the taskbar. Both shortcuts for Photo 1.7 and Designer 1.7 on my desktop are fine.
  15. This is more important that a cancel option. I was getting my files from multiple folders doing multiple jobs. You can't drag and drop files and folders on the list directly.
  16. I've made a mistake with the destination folder (same as the original folder). Is there a way to cancel a batch job after it's started? Also how do I tell the app not to write over a file with the same name, or auto rename it with (2), (3)? It was a copy of a folder (no big deal), but I'd like to know. Thank you.
  17. I am so used to have a cancel option for batch processing I was a bit surprised it wasn't there. No loss for me as I was testing it on a backup folder.
  18. Just to let you know it is better but there is a bug still. If I run a file with the same dimensions everything is fine. If I run the macro with an image with different dimensions then the results is not predictable.
  19. Hello. I have to say I've tried to find the bugs and what I was doing wrong. No luck. I want a final 1920x1080 flatten image from two layers of the same image. Layer (2) is 1080 tall and [Align Right]. Layer (1) is a duplicate of (2). (2) is 1920 in width. (2) is [Align Center] and [Align Middle]. (2) is the back+blur and (1) is top+drop shadow. AP records every step. When I play it back the locked aspect ratio is not recorded (Transform > Lock Aspect Ratio toggle). Ratio distortion. I have my macro here, minus the blur and drop shadow steps. I just want to understand what I am doing wrong. It's a simple macro, but somehow I can't make it to run. Thank you. macro-test.afmacro
  20. I was going insane. So it is a bug. Thank you.
