  1. @DM1Unfortunate that this doesn't seem to work with art boards...
  2. I would also like to have that feature. If you add a Symbol to a document and don't want it to sync, you can simply unlink it. It you use lots of global symbols and can't keep track of where they are used, it's a) not much different than having a single document with lots of artboards, and b) it's the users responsibility to not make things overly complicated. One way to implement this, by the way, would be to allow "Place Image" to link an image instead of embedding it, and refreshing whenever the source file changes. Then, your global symbol would be just a document that contains that symbol only.
  3. That is very strange, I can't reproduce it anymore, either. Maybe it was "fixed" by relaunching the app or something. I'm pretty sure I'm not imagining things because I tried to select some text for quite a while yesterday, but didn't succeed. If I find a way to reproduce the problem reliably, I'll report back.
  4. I hope you don't mind me posting this much, but I would really like the bugs I encounter to get fixed, as using Affinity Designer can be a frustrating experience at times. I hope you appreciate the reports. 1. Adjusting location of elements using Transform Studio "glitches" When using the transform studio to adjust the position of elements by dragging the coordinate values (especially small elements), the element starts to "glitch", or jump around. This gets worse the longer one drags. See the first attached video (This can be reproduced in a new document). 2. Adding text sometimes breaks the viewport I could only reproduce this in a document that is somehow "broken" I guess. See the second video. When I tap to the left of the lower left artboard with the text tool open, the view jumps "nowhere". You can see me trying to find the artboards by zooming & panning, but they won't show up, I can only get them back by using the navigator studio to reset the viewport. I've also attached the file (Unbenannt.afdesign). (That file also has a bunch of guides I can no longer get rid of). 3. Minor: Changing the name of an artboard only updates in the UI after moving the view port, or closing/opening the document If I change the name of an artboard, the label above the artboard doesn't update, which caused me to think that I'm doing something wrong. It updates once moving the viewport, or closing and then reopening the document, though. 4. Minor: Symbol behaviour These aren't really bugs, but I still wanted to mention this: It was little unexpected to me that it's possible to modify a symbol by having sync symbols on and modifying a second instance when the original's layer is locked. I think that locking the layer of a symbol should turn automatic syncing off, don't you think? It was also a little unexpected that the visibility of the layers of the symbols are synced as well (I didn't expect that hiding one symbol hides all the others).

  5. When adding text on a path (in my case, an ellipse), I can select the text on the path only if it's alignment is centered. If I left-align (or right-align) the text, I can no longer select text in any way: Select all text by double tapping Select parts of the text by dragging over the text. I don't think a video is needed to demonstrate this, as the bug can be reproduced in ~30 seconds: new document, add ellipse, add text to ellipse, left align the text, attempt to select part of the text.
  6. When adding guides in a document with multiple artboards in a smaller, secondary artboard, the guides are inserted in an unexpected location (far above the artboard), and cannot be selected later on. This means that it's not possible to move or delete the guides. To reproduce, simply create a document with artboards enabled, add a second artboard below, and try to add a guide. I've also attached a video demonstrating the issue. In the video, I attempt to drag the first guide (which just deselects it). I then add another guide, which appears above the first guide (and is selected). I then zoom into the second artboard, and add and then delete a third guide (hoping that the guide would appear in the visible area). Last, I zoom the guides and attempt to select them by tapping and long-tapping (which shows the deselect/cut/copy menu). There does not seem to be a way to remove these guides.

  7. The color the colour picker picks up looks different from the color in the document. When applying the color to a different element, that element has the correct color, but the color picker shows an incorrect color. I hope that the attached video is enough to clarify the problem. Note how the color picker jumps between two different colors as I switch between the two rectangles that have the same color. Given that the problem occurs only in CMYK documents, I assume that this is a bug in converting colors between different profiles. ScreenRecording_03-11-2019 23-19-09.mp4
  8. I think Apple's to blame for the terrible file management, and it really is quite unintuitive. Pretty sure there's not much Affinity Designer can do better, unfortunately. (The trick is to pick the export folder by navigating to the folder (not into it), choosing "Select", selecting the folder, and tapping "Open").
  9. I'd just like to second that not being able to export to dropbox affects me, too. I hope that you're working on a fix if that's possible.
  10. I have a slightly counter-intuitive tip: before trying to move the item, deselect it. If you drag it directly from the deselected state, it won’t resize. 64DF263A-CB07-44F9-A4AD-FF2FACA50031.MP4
  11. I agree - it seems a little strange that it’s possible to *un*lock a layer with a single tap on the lock, but locking it requires opening the menu. I use locking layers a lot when I have overlapping shapes, so easy locking would be very nice.
