  1. There are two main things I regret from Adobe in terms of interface.. as I imagine many of us "migrants" do: 1. Ability to save workspaces.. 2. Much more customizable side panels.. you could have 2 on each side, they could be folded etc.. allowing to really keep a lot of tools at hand and in place (not at all a fan of having my tool floating around). Am not holding my breath but these were really veeeeery practical
  2. Hello, I wish snapping to guides would work also in Preview Mode, I usually know more or less where our guides are and sometimes you want to make an adjustment while previewing but in Preview Mode the snapping is deactivated
  3. This thread cracks me up :0) Nice to see others share my frustration. I don't even understand how people cannot comprehend the need for global layers*.. then again I've only been a graphic designer for 30 years. * ESPECIALLY FOR PUBLISHER (and since they want their suite to "function as a unit" it'd have to be implemented in all 3).
  4. On my Mac my 3 Preferred Languages are set as: English US, French and Italian, and my main language is set as English US.. I still get that same issue of having only English (United Kingdom) accessible for spelling in Publisher when it comes to English. However if I change my Region (under Language & Region) from Switzerland.. to United States, then in Publisher my choice for spelling changes from English (United Kingdom) to English (without any further mention next to it..). Of course I will not keep my Region set to United States as I want my temperature, units etc to match my culture.. at the Mac System level..
  5. I was about to order one.. then I thought.. oh wait.. I use Affinity apps
  6. This should be on the very top of Affinity's' list.
  7. My school of thought differs, I try to keep things in topic if they already exist, the more threads.. the more loose threads, flying around like cotton balls.. the more diluted the "support" gets.. Oh and I'm a Mac User, you know how we fly.. "last version everything" ;0) The real question is why do you answer me if you have nothing of substance to bring to the table.. More cotton balls.
  8. Not so lucky here, I did all I read on this thread. The launching of Photo, the dock thing, the ctrl launch, selected everything to be reset.. my context bar never came back.. considering there is no specific shortcut for it I would file this as a serious bug.. it should not disappear to never return, I think it did when I hid the studio. Another issue I experienced.. in the process I also toggled View > Separated Mode Then wanted to > Merge All Windows again.. and nothing.. just no effect whatsoever. I had to again reset the whole app. __________________________________________ It's "interesting" to see no-one from Affinity respond and letting us haunt around like poor souls.. It seems to me that when a bug happens to several people over a long period of time they should intervene, call me delusional.. or idealistic.
  9. Same here... I tried to do what eflatz suggested: new file and copy content from old file. Same problem, still no bleed, so I had to actually create a new file WITHOUT an artboard.. but this is beyond unacceptable. The whole beauty of using Designer for me is to have all my various sizes be exportable as needed from a single file with different artboards when I work on an ad campaign.
  10. Indeed Bogdan, I hate floating windows, they should definitely copy InDesign a little more.. considering how much they already did ;0) A whole host of reasons Adobe won the Desktop publishing battle, and ergonomy is one of them.
  11. Without global layers there is no way I could switch to Publisher. And that's only one of the issues, but definitely a major one ! Imagine laying out a magazine that way, Hello ?!! LoL I guess it is very hard for them to implement considering that if I understand well they want their 3 applications to be able to juggle the same files. As long as I have to use InDesign I will likely remain in the Adobe Ecosystem. For now I have only played with the Affinity Apps but not used them professionally. I'm sure they sold a lot.. but does that mean buyers are converts ? I sill see all this as potential in a bit of a pipe dream way.
  12. I'd like the Apple Color Picker (View..) to have a shortcut.. AND to appear as a Studio toolbox even.. should be possible no? Or even allow the user to specify if they want to use the Affinity Color Toolbox or the Apple one by default.
  13. Hi, I really wish I could dock the "Tools" to the right of the screen: either to the left of Right Studio or to its right (basically at the right edge of the screen).. or even horizontally at the top. To me it is a big annoyance when using the Affinity suite that the only choice is docked as it is now or undocked (I don't like undocked anything usually). I would imagine it is annoying for many right-handed people.. a decent number of people are right handed no ?!!
  14. Same here.. better yet would be to be able to dock it to the right of the screen and to the left of the Right Studio. Most humans are right-handed, and screen are bigger and bigger (not sure why UI devs keep using certain of these outdated paradigms). Can't be that hard to implement is it ? Adobe has so many things right with their docking and folding options, would Affinity run into "rights" issues if they lift too many ideas from them?
  15. There are a few things I wish would be possible with colors: - Ability to select and delete several colors at once from swatches - When one deletes a global color, the software should ask if one wants it to be replaced by another one.. so that all elements using the deleted color then become the new chosen replacement one (or at least tell the user that he's about to delete a color that is actually used in their graphic. Hope these can be implemented..
