  1. FWIW I just got a client who needs me to create custom screen graphics for their Genmega ATMs, and they require 256-color BMPs. Nothing else will work. Here it is, 4 years after you asked, and this still isn't available in Affinity Designer. I guess it really ISN'T a priority. Funny though. I can export them in GIMP, the free image program. Luckily for me. It makes my process more convoluted and dependent on multiple programs, but I guess that's just the way it is.
  2. Yes I would, because the boundaries of the artboard clip it, so it doesn't cause problems. The purpose is that I don't need to set up a mask to trim the object/symbol, and can easily reposition it if needed. Also, if the stroke (1px solid black border) is added to a rectangle at the bottom of the stack, even if I trim the object with a mask so that it doesn't extend past the edges of the artboard it will still obscure the 1px border, like in the examples I attached earlier. I could spend time fiddling with the masks so the border isn't obscured, but it would take more time than I wan
  3. I tried that as well. The problem is if there's anything larger than the artboard – like an image – that extends past the edge of the bottom rectangle, it obscures the border (1). I can set the bottommost layer to multiply, as long as the background rectangle is white (2) but any layers above that still obscure the border, and they can't be set to multiply if they are overlapping any other elements (3). I suppose I could work it out so there's a mask on a container for all of the elements that has a width and height 2px smaller than the artboard and is centered, but honestly it would be
  4. It's now over a year later, and this hasn't been fixed on Mac? Or at least it doesn't seem to have been fixed. I've been beating my head against the wall for the last hour trying to get it to work. I'm using the AppStore Affinity Designer version 1.7.2, MAC OS 10.14.6. I need a 1px border for some static display ads. I can make a rectangle set to the top layer have a 1px stroke, and set color opacity to 0%, however then it works like a shield and I can't manipulate the stuff below it without turning it off. And if I turn it off, there's a chance I'll forget to turn it back on, and then my a
  5. @Hangman Yes, thank you! I had no idea how to consistently get it to happen or take a video of it. I really appreciate it.
  6. Mac OS 10.14, Affinity Designer 1.7.2, Mac App Store version. This is tough to explain, and is only repeatable in that it keeps happening. I'm working in files that have a large number of groups and sub-groups. Randomly when I am working in a group, other groups below the one I'm working in will disappear from the Layers panel; blank spaces are in their place. I'll ry to get a screenshot of it the next time it happens. It's usually possible to fix if I resize the Layers panel, and doesn't seem to be causing any bigger problems. It's just disconcerting.
