  1. Solution is to: Create a template document Use the Mac to import a palette into the template document Use the iPad to create a new document based on the template. Placing the template in iCloud or some other network shared storage would help as well.
  2. No, all images seem to be linked by default in Designer 1.7.2 for macOS. No, I have not opened this document in Publisher. Nevertheless I have a licensed copy and tried it out during the beta. However I keep my copy of Publisher on an external drive and not normally accessible. The drive wasn't even attached when I created this document or edit it. I insert the image by dragging the file from the Finder and into Designer.
  3. When I drag-and-drop JPG files into Affinity Designer 1.7.2, it seems that they are linked and not embedded. When the Designer file is saved, closed and then the original JPG files were removed (or moved), re-opening the Desginer file shows a "missing resources" dialog. Clicking "Resource Manager" on this prompt shows a Resource Manager that can be used to re-place the missing image. However this Resource Manager dialog can't seem to be invoked from elsewhere in Designer, unless of course by making a linked image missing.
  4. This missing "resource manager" is really frustrating. I just found out the hard way when I opened an Affinity Designer (version 17.2) document only to found out that the images within are missing and been forcefully shown a "resource manager" dialog to replace/embed the image. The problem is, at the time I inserted the image, I wasn't made aware that these are only "linked" images and not "embedded" (and there isn't any way to know which is which in Designer until it became missing). Normally I download clip-arts into the Downloads folder and after I've placed them into Designer, I removed the original files. Now I'm really frustrated of this "linked images" un-feature and there isn't a clear way to see which images are linked and how to forcefully embed them inside the "afdesign" file.
  5. Is it possible to stitch vertically? I've scanned an A1-sized document using a handheld scanner and ensured that there are plenty of overlaps. Now is it possible to use Affinity Photo (or Designer for that matter), to stitch and merge the overlapped portions of the images?
  6. Where can I find this super-ellipse shape on Affinity Designer 1.5.5?
  7. The girl's face looks like she's intellectually challenged. Is that intended?
  8. Pixel snapping still doesn't export correctly on 1.3.2. Even though in the editor it seems to align perfectly, when exported there are still some gray anti-aliasing artifacts around straight lines. Original files attached. Pillars.zip
  9. I've got a collection of Keynote objects that I'd like to use and edit in Affinity Designer. Is it possible to import them the way PSD files get imported? (i.e. editable?)
  10. Is there a way to convert outlines to filled shapes? The reason behind it is that I'm creating icon glyphs and would like to use the compound shape to "disconnect" a few lines – whereas I can't do that with just an outline and probably would need to convert the line into a stroke.
  11. +1 from me – whenever I export this into PDF it gets rasterized. BSChatBubbleBackgroundLeft.zip
  12. Now that the iPhone 6+ is out and it wants 3x retina images (400+ dpi), design apps should start supporting it. There is some 2x image support in Affinity designer. But what about 3x retina images? (and perhaps something that's more future-proof). Thanks.
