  1. One thing I dearly miss in Designer is the ability to scale skew and rotate a selection of vector points (vertices).


    Another small little thing that annoys me is that you can't use the ALT key to duplicate anything in the Layers palette even though that is how it works on the canvas. It would be nice to have some consistency.

  2. If you scale an object numerically by going to the Transform panel and typing a percentage into the Width or Height control after locking the aspect ratio, you can rescale the corners proportionally by going back to the Corner Tool and typing the same percentage into the Radius control on the Context toolbar.

    Not bad. But unfortunately, it doesn't work if your artwork contains corners with different radii. Typing 50% in the input field will set all corners to the same radius which is not what it should be doing IMO.

  3. Affinity Photo supports quite a few file formats out there. One that's sadly missing is .EXR, a format that's gained quite a bit of popularity in the world of 3D. One problem is of course that .EXR goes up to 32 bit/channel and Photo only goes up to 16 bit/channel. So my request doubles up as a request for 32 bits/channel support.

  4. Unless I'm mistaken, there aren't really any ways to manipulate the visibility of multiple layers in one go, like toggling the visibility of all other layers than the current one, solo-ing a layer or dragging over the visibility tick boxes to change multiple layers in one go.


    In fact, you can change the locking or opacity of multiple layers, but not the visibility.


    I admit some my examples smell a bit of the typical Adobe ways of doing things, which is not necessarily how it should be. It's more about the principal.

  5. My first feature request: Scripting. That's how important I know it to be.


    I'm not too sure why people are so down on Applescript. You can quibble about the aesthetics of the syntax, but AFAIK there's nothing else with the same scope on the Mac where you can bring multiple applications together in one integrated workflow. Specially when you start using AppleScriptObj-C where you make fully fledged standalone applications that can control a whole raft of applications at the push of a button. Pretty powerful stuff.


    Of course, I don't know what the future holds for scripting on the Mac platform. They have announced support for Javascript, but that will only cover Yosemite.

  6. Hi, my name is Manu Roig. I have worked in the animation industry in London for almost 20 years, the last few years mostly as a designer using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Very happy to see some new blood appearing in the world of Mac graphics applications.


    Affinity looks really impressive for a version 1. Congratulations. I hope you guys will keep pushing Affinity to be as good as it can be.
