  1. Hi crow,

    This was already requested/discussed in other threads and will eventually be added as soon as we can. It's just a case of rounding the numbers for display. Affinity precision isn't affected by this.

    Note that you can also perform math operations in the input fields. So for example to reduce a 5cm rectangle in half just enter /2 in the width input field (Transform panel) after the value that's there.

    Thanks for the reply MEB. I knew about the ability to perform math operations in the input fields, but somehow have forgotten about them in my workflow. I don’t need to use calculator anymore! Felling in love with AD more and more. :-)

  2. Oh, i've searched the forum for such a topic but couldn't find one. I'm okay to wait, of course. 


    Then something like export with specs would help, until the proper PSD export will be realized... Like if you get an additional layer while exporting, where all the font characteristics are written close to the text block they relate to. 

    I've attached a sketch what it could look like... 

    Really like your idea of PSD export avo! I would ditch Photoshop completely, if I wasn’t doing some PSD web mockup now and again.

  3. Hello.


    I’ve noticed that when I create a rectangle (10 x 5 px for example) and want to resize it using the Transform panel (let’s say 10.25 x 5 px), Designer resizes the rectangle properly, but the Transform panel shows me that the width is 10.3 px. It’s okay, if I don’t really need to know the precise numbers, but often I do need to know them. I’d copy 10.25, put it in calculator, and divide it by 2 for example, when I design logos/icons/type.


    So, maybe introduce a feature that enables you to display a desired number of decimal numbers in the Transform panel? Would be awesome!



  4. Hello.


    I deal quite a bit with logo design which means I need the artwork to be as precise as possible. Often I need objects to be perfectly aligned with other object’s anchor points.


    I’ve attached a screenshot as an example of what I’m usually trying to achieve. I want the yellow rectangle to snap to the upper left corner of the red thingy. In Illustrator I used to drag a guide, hover over the desired anchor point, and it would snap to it. I wish I could do the same in Designer or better be able to snap an object to other object’s anchor points without creating a guide (this might become an issue with an object that has lots of anchor points though).
