  1. Hello Dan, Sorry for the late response... Having some challenges with my PC.. As for pixel size, I think you're right as the file is pretty large at 2550*52,500 px… So yeah, that could be the issue.. I tried with files smaller around 20,000 px, and had no issue... So I think in such case, I'll stick to PDF or Jpeg export configurations.. Thanks
  2. Hi, First, I'd like to acknowledge the team behind Affinity Designer, I mean you guys are amazing. You should really sell the truth about how fast Affinity Designer is cause sometimes, I feel it's not properly said :). Affinity Designer is so fast, fluid and fun to work with. I enjoy using it a lot, though still have to go back to photoshop for a few reasons. One of which is mockups, but with the launch of 1.8, I think I might be very close to letting Adobe Photoshop go. Now to the matter I'd like to talk about, I design contents and send across to other guys to work on, and many still use photoshop. Cause of this, it's difficult to work smart and save time cause after exporting to PSD, the text gets rasterized and becomes uneditable and the guys I work with needs it editable so they can continue their work. I've tried to look for a way around this but couldn't really find any convenient method. So, I'd like to suggest a way/feature that allows us to export text from Affinity to PSD with the text remaining editable, this would be super great and I believe I'm speaking for others too. thanks
  3. Hello Dan, Attached is a cropped screenshot of what I'm trying to explain. From the image, I did set the PNG export to 2x, so it scales up the export 2 times bigger than the original design setup. I do this cause I want a higher resolution of the export. But even after setting up to 2x or even 3x, it still render as 1x which is the default as seen in the Jpeg export settings. Now with jpeg, I don't get this as making it 2x on jpeg would actually work as intended by scaling the render/export image 2 times or 3 times as the case may be more than the original design specifications. So in conclusion, the PNG doesn't really change or scale up even though I set it to scale up. I notice this with really long artboards in terms of height, but the Jpeg works fine. Hope this makes sense, thanks :).
  4. Affinity Designer is an maxing tool.. I mean I really enjoy using it and just want to fully move my whole workflow to designer. But there are a few things still holding me back. Affinity Designer has a great tool called constraints that can be used for web design when testing different screen sizes of resizing screens in general. But what might make this even cooler might be adding a separate personal for everything web design. Just like with Adobe Muse or Webflow. Having the ability to not just design but to also export that design as html to be used without messing with the code. I believe a lot of people like me would appreciate this.
  5. Noticed a could of times when I create a long page design like a landing page... And I try to export to png with a 2x or more multiplier... It refuses to export properly. It still exports with default 1x even if I've changed it to 2x or more..
  6. Having the ability to export text as text instead of having them convert to bitmap when exporting to PSD would be super cool. This would really make the work flow so much more flexible. I believe we all agree yeah?
  7. Well, that'd be cool to have.. But I think it would be best to feature that on a new separate software..
  8. Hi guys, first off, let me start by saying you guys are really doing a great deal of work with the affinity suites... Super great products, I bet you don't need anyone telling. So, I've got an idea which I'm sure has come to your minds but would like to know what the plans are, or something if it's ok to share. I watched an interview video on YouTube talking about affinity products with the CEO (not sure). But one of the things he talked about when asked questions about creating a video editing software and sorts, he said not sure for now, since current affinity products were designed on a certain type of platform that doesn't support videos and animations yet, which yeah I understand. Actually for me, I think affinity shouldn't really invest into video software since there are a lot of options already there, and building a brand new platform would take a lot. This topic is about a website design software. Something that (just like publisher) is designed for creating websites just like the now discontinued Adobe Muse but with modern looks and touches like Adobe XD and Webflow. It would be super awesome to have a software that is offline based and powerful to completely create stunning professional websites without coding, I think that would really be another big hit for Serif. Since publisher is possible, I think making a website software soon and fast wouldn't really be as challenging as building a video app. I believe the platform or code room is there (don't really know the terminology for that). Designer has some great responsive tools that is used for website layout and mock-up, and publisher has tools for managing page linking and all that good stuff, I think it would really be awesome to have a software that tackles this. Just like Designer with many of its features built in, I think a website design software that has all the useful features for creating professional featured built in would mean a lot to a lot of us (hoping a lot of us wants this too). Adobe Muse was a great app, is still is but discontinued and depended so much on widgets and add-ons. Building a web design software that tackles this to a huge extent would be awesome. Again, I believe affinity already have the database and platform to create this software and would be super happy to see this hopefully in 2020. Thanks guys and again, great apps so far... Incredible team.
