  1. Thanks. This is very, very useful.
  2. To define a cut line in laser engraving software you have to set it at a specific color at a specific stroke weight. For a Trotec laser, the weight is 0.0036pt. The problem is, if you type in a decimal more than two places the Affinity software rounds it down to zero. This is a showstopper bug that makes the software unsuitable for the production of laser engraved artwork. Please fix this. Thanks.
  3. When defining a stroke width, Affinity Designer (and Publisher) currently converts decimals more than one place to tenths. It is important to have the ability to specify decimals in the stroke width of a line up to four decimal places so that the software can be used to define vector cut lines in laser engraving software. Case in point - the users manual for Trotec Job Control states that for vector lines to cut with a laser, you must set them at a width of "0.001 mm or 0.00005 inches" (see attached screenshot). You currently cannot do that with Affinity Designer/Publisher, if you type in a width of "0.0036pt" (equal to 0.00005 inches) as the stroke width, the software will convert 0.0036 to zero. Actually anything less than 0.1 will get rounded down to zero. This is important functionality if we were to completely replace Illustrator & InDesign. Thanks.
