  1. Hello...

    On the attached document, and only on this one, here is what motivates this post :

    you cannot COPY the circle with ALT / Move tool ...
    You cannot delete PIXEL layers with DEL
    We can't paint where we want (Pixel Persona) except in this phantom rectangle (display in outlines)
    The brush gets stuck on a texture ...

    Hi Affinty ... and Publisher users...

    When the layers palette is stored in his studio, his elevator is sometimes invisible (everything is fine when we take it out and put it back on).

    On one screen I have Publisher, and on another I have Designer: I switch from one to the other, and after a while, one or the other get on the hand and I can't
    activate other tools in the vertical toolbar.
    This is only true on the current doc (which I cannot save). However, I can open other documents.

    I'm working on a 36MB doc (linked Pdf images, 12 pages): you have to wait up to 1 second before any painting moves!
    Various controls suddenly seem to freeze, including "Control X" which suddenly does not cut anything.

    Why not consider a "wireframe" display to facilitate text or wedging work, and to identify locked blocks?

    The "samples" palette always comes back to gray colors ... Grrr!

    Am I the only one ? Thanks.


  3. Yes i am with you!
    I work for 3-4 months on Designer and the lack of contrast is painful. It's the same on Publisher.
    In the layers panel, where we move a lot of things, the colors have very little brightness, it's a hassle.
    And in the colors proposed to locate the layers, 4 out of 7 are too dark to see if the layer is ... visible!
    Active panels are also indistinguishable from inactive panels.
    I hope that the next version will be more advanced at this level ...

  4. Thankx Pšenda,
    yes I know this manipulation, but which responds partially ... I will quote Illustrator, like many people here, but with its direct selection tool, everything is simple. I do not expect Designer to be a copy of illustrator, and I adopted it as it is, but for certain manipulations resolved for years in most software, Affinity seems curiously dissident ... it's his personality!

  5. When you want to designate an element of a diagram using a number (letter) and a line ... you must swap the node tool (A) with the move tool (V) to adjust the position of the number and the line. Which becomes tense when you have tons! There is no optional key on these 2 tools, which would allow you to temporarily switch from tool (V) to (A), and, please, without having to activate the selection before you can move the node. .

  6. I have a Publisher doc in which I have (so far) imported 50 A4 sheets, fairly "simple" drawings (particularly loaded ...) from Designer.
    The total document weight is 730 MB, whether the files are linked or integrated.
    Of course the files are linked, the loading time is as long as in the "integrated" version. And what motivates this plea is that when I open my document, I must systematically update the modified files in the meantime! (the update in "live" works well). According to the doc there should be a difference in weight, and the loading time will be much faster. Did I miss something ?

  7. Yeah !

    I admit that I searched a lot (in the menus ...) but never found. On the other hand I arrive in Designer (and Publisher) for 1 or 2 months, and I have to do everything at once: the job, and the conversion to these 2 (excellent) software, of which however certain functions are very confusing.
    And there I admit that I lacked perpicuity !
    Thank you very much Loukash, things will be better now, thanks and merry Christmas !


  8. Hello Walt

    1) By selection of the ZONE (terms in Affinity doc...) I mean the box, the block, the frame.....
    2) In Publisher I therefore did not draw an frame, since it was dropped by copy and paste.
    3) I then reduced this frame from below so as to make the red arrows and the eye visible.
    4) I clicked on the arrow and I drew the second frame ... and that's it.
    5) I have never used the knot at the bottom right.


  9. Hi Larry And Hi Affinity workers...

    The ancestor off Aff Designer, Draw Plus X8 had a tool "Pen B-Spline" very useful to retrace from a scanned model.
    This B-Spline Feather is also present in the Expression software (Creature House Fractal Design - 1996 ?) Fallen into the hands of Microsoft
    and offered free in 2003.
    In Expression, you can modify the nodes afterwards, (roundtrip from an acute angle to a curve).

    The people at Designer should put the B-Spline up to date, personally I was looking for this kind of tool that I discovered ... Affinity!
