  1. Right PaulEC, that can do almost the same thing (because you can always do the reverse operation), however the canvas and its contents are flipped and rotated permanently. But if you rotate from View menú, rotation is temporary; rather than rotating the canvas permanently, you can rotate the document view instead, which is akin to physically rotating your working space. This allows you to view your document from a different angle without manipulating its layout. Well, it would be interesting to have flip horizontal/vertical like temporal non destructive function Rotate of View menu.
  2. Sorry iconoclast, rotate option that I meant is in "View" menu, and just rotate canvas-preview (not rendered image), and its great to draw strokes, especially with pen.
  3. I agree, I've not found the function either. I have only found the one to rotate the entire image in increments to the right or left which is also very useful for painting. Mirror is an important topic especially for painters and illustrators. Sometimes I miss it to refresh my mind after a while working on an picture, and also to check proportions and perspective. I hope it will be added in the future.
  4. Hi all, When I copy a text with style from one document to another that have a style with the same name, Affinity Publisher rename a style adding a number instead of adapting the style to the specifications that have the same name style on the new document. This is extremely useful when we have several documents that share the same text with different styles. For example, imagine that we are designing a calendar, but we have 4 different models, one pocket, another to hang on the wall, another for the table, etc. All share the same text, however each requires different text styles. The following year, when updating the calendar, we will only be necessary to modify one of the models and then copy and paste the text into each different calendar, as they all share the same style names, the new text of calendar will automatically adapt to each different design. I don't know if you understand!
  5. Same here. It's a very important feature, I would say essential to create a large multi language documents. What walt.farrell says doesn't work here.
  6. Hi all, I miss the possibility of automatically repeating a tabulator at the same distance like ID software. It's a nightmare when I want several tabs at the same distance or I need to change the dimension of the text frame. Please add this function.
  7. Yes, it helps... It isn't as good as only hold the Alt key, but it is a good alternative to assigning a button to the pen, since this last one method makes it necessary to fly on the tablet, that is, the pen must not touch the tablet so that the button assigned to the hand tool works. Thank you!
  8. You are right, but I use pen buttons for others functions and its unnatural for my put the hand tool in that button... or maybe -I recognize it- because I've been used an "Alt" key on my left hand for ages. Since PageMaker what I remember. Thanks again.
  9. Thanks for your reply. As far as I know, Alt + left click mouse button doesn't produce any character. If you press Alt + any other key, you be able to make any special character that you want. If you use a mouse and click with the middle button it appears hand tool, this it's ok. My point is because I use a Wacom tablet (doesn't have middle button). In this case it's much faster simply hold the "Alt" key and press and drag the stylus on the tablet, the moment you release the Alt key, the hand tool disappears. This is exactly how I work in InDesign and I assure you that it's much more efficient than changing the tool or use a vertical and horizontal sliders every time while I'm working on a zoomed text. If you work with a mouse, isn't as dramatic as tablet because at least you always have the central button available to hold. I only ask Affinity for an optional "Alt" hold key for hand tool, if the user want. Simply as an option.
  10. My suggestions (Excuse my mistakes, I'm not a native english speaker) For me, merge data is absolutely necessary. (I see a specific pinned post for that, great!) Why are there no global layers?... How can I make a catalog with multiple languages then? Global layers are essential! Please, add duplicate tools with grid parameters: vertical and horizontal distance and number of copies. Be able to rotate pages individually (for design purpose). Currently only is possible globally. Pressing Ctrl + combination should zoom to the selected object (if selected) and not to the center of the page like now. In vector mode (like on a editing an imported PDF), transform functions doesn't work, ¿why? Its important that if you hold "Alt key" always activate the hand tool to move a view, specially important when you are on text tool, since it's not possible to use the H key or any other, because it would be written as text. When you define a color with a name, and this color is applied to a style, the style is not updated if you later change the color. Fix it please. Very exited whit the potencial of Affinity Publisher, give me more power to leave InDesing forever. Thanks!!!
