  1. I just found this out and I am super disappointed. :((( I was praising Affinity tools around, but now I find out Designer doesn't even have a basic vector function like this. Please fix this, Affinity Team, or else I'm not seeing how anyone can take your products seriously.
  2. The only reason I have always perished the thought of making illustrations in Designer is the lack of Shape Builder tool. Literally the only reason Adobe Illustrator still has any value for me. Please add Shape Builder tool 👏
  3. How come Paypal payments are currently not possible during this discounted period? Just curious.
  4. I did that once I had managed to open it. I've split the file into two (since there were two versions of flyers). One of them still ended up having around 200MB, but is a bit faster to open. I've just tried opening a 300MB file and it takes even less than the 200MB one. I'm starting to think it might have something to do with the assets. I've tried minimizing the size of all images, delete any unnecessary or unused layers, which didn't help. Still, thanks for your advice, firstdefence.
  5. Gosh, I was about to add my vote to this and saw the date of the original post... But anyway, another user that would like to see this here! 👋
  6. Hey everyone, I'll get to the problem right away. I've browsed the forums and haven't seen anything that could help me. I'm using Affinity Designer to create flyers for a client. Those files are shared via Google Drive, so that when I'm offline, the client can still make small changes such as change text or images. While I usually have files that are well over 400MB, for either Affinity Designer or Photo, those never take more than a minute to load. But this particular file takes around 5min for 160MB version, and even more with some updates that push it up to 200MB. I've tried opening it on both Win10 and latest MacOS (MacBook Pro). Win10 machine even has better hardware than the Mac, and still no change in loading time. On the other hand, Mac ran out of memory and storage space so hard that it just shut down.... 😕 I've noticed that opening the 200MB file would eat up literally all space on Win10 machine SSD (even if Affinity was installed to HDD), and it would take up 12 out of 16 GB RAM. I have gone and tried resizing the images, deleting unnecessary assets, and then the file size actually GREW for a couple of MB. If anyone from Affinity can help with this, I'm ready to send the aforementioned file privately and disclose more information. I'm really loving working with Affinity, but this is very much messing with our tight deadlines. If I'm breaking any rules by posting this here, please let me know. Thanks in advance 👋
  7. While the lack of list view for symbols has not deterred me so far from using Affinity Designer, I certainly would like to see this feature in the future. :)
  8. Hi, would just like to add to this that I'm having the same problem. The only way I managed to export bleed was through File -> Export, but no luck with Export Persona. Hope this gets fixed soon. I regularly have to export large batches of PDFs with bleed marks included. Thanks for a great work otherwise, cheers
