  1. I first reported this over a year ago - April 2019. Is there any movement at all on it? It's very disruptive to workflow to have to zoom in and out of every image to check the borders, as it always looks like images aren't lined up due to this transparency issue, so you have to double-check every image.
  2. Ahha! Great! That worked! I can't believe I didn't see that box before. So obvious now. Thanks for your help! Hopefully they will add an option to pad the background from top and bottom in the future.
  3. Thanks, that's useful information for the future! May have to get Publisher now to see these other tricks.
  4. Hi there, I wondered if anyone can help with this in Affinity Photo. I often create graphics with text that have coloured rectangle boxes behind them. I have been doing this manually - adding a text layer, then adding a rectangle layer, making it the right size, aligning it with the text and then colouring. Does anyone know of a quicker way to do this, preferably so that you can auto-align and choose the padding around the text for the box? I have attached the kind of thing I am talking about. Thank you!
  5. Any news on this? I can see it's not fixed in Beta It's quite disrupting to workflow as you always have to zoom in and out to check if it is just the bug or if you haven't lined up imaged properly and can see what's underneath.
  6. Hi Callum, Unfortunately, when trying to run the command, it says
  7. Hi Gabe, Apologies, I didn't keep the file where it was an issue on export. But I'll keep an eye out for it in the future and send over the file if/when it happens again! Is there any news on when the visual artefact will be fixed? It's a tad annoying, as I have to keep checking if the artefact is present or not when working on my images - it makes it not trustworthy!
  8. Hi all. Unfortunately, I also have this problem updating to What is the best way to get the update installed? Creating a new user account? Am I able to delete the user account after?
  9. Apologies if this is a really basic question and an easy fix, I am just learning Designer, and can't seem to find a way! I have a curve layer that I gave a stroke to. It is set to just have a standard line at the start and the end. My problem is there is a big gap between the start and end point, and I can't find a way for it to be filled (effectively so the stroke has no end). I have this same problem in another image where I used the Ellipse tool, gave it a stroke, and then a gap was left at the top of the circle. Any help would be very much appreciated!
  10. I am having a problem with the latest version of Affinity Photo for Windows ( Previously, when importing an image from the Stock image browser, the image loaded almost instantly. Now, the image takes roughly 2 minutes to load, if at all. Most of the time, it freezes Affinity Photo and I have to Ctrl+Alt+Delete and restart.
  11. Yes. it would be good to get, say, a 1/4 size of the screen as a preview, for example.
  12. Yes. And, to be clear, it's not just a transparent 1 pixel wide border around the whole image. If you have images within the canvas, any of those images could have transparent borders around them, too.
  13. Firstly, I LOVE the new (at least, I think it's new) stock image browser. It is incredibly helpful and has cut workflow time down so much for some things I do. So thank you for adding it! I would love it if there was a way to make the stock images bigger, though, as they are pretty small at the moment. Obviously having all images bigger would increase the loading time and strain on servers, so I am thinking maybe it would be good to have it work whereby if you click the image or hover over it for a certain amount of time, it would open a bigger preview in a pop-out window, or something. Thanks again for adding this great feature!
  14. I have created a new thread, here - Also, to note: I have noticed that when I export images, sometimes this transparent border is baked in to the image, whereas, before, I thought it was just a visual issue.
  15. As per the pre-1.7 thread here - All images get a transparent border. The issue of the previous thread remains - that when you zoom in and out, at certain zoom levels, images within a file get transparent borders of a pixel or two, making it seem as though images are not correctly placed. It was originally thought that this transparent border was a visual issue only, but I have noticed upon exporting images that sometimes the transparency is baked in to the exported file. Sometimes it is not. So there may be two issues, here.
