  1. Hmm … Cmd + D works fine here on my German keyboard … though only with the app language set to English … I see … gosh, yes, that’s annoying …
  2. The only way I am able to get levels to display clipping on the red channel is to add 0.4% to the 'Master' black level first (and 99.6% to the 'Master' white level). If the 'Master' levels are set to 0%/100%, I get the same as GabrielM. I have seen this too. But I found the results are not reliable enough …
  3. Hi Jenny, welcome here … Pretty interesting that this function is available in Affinity Photo … I never realized that. But unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to work here as well. So I would also be interested in how this is intended to work. I can only confirm the behavior described. As soon as I use the clipping preview with the single RGB channels, the image either turns completely black or completely white, and moving the slider has no effect. Thanks, Alex
  4. Hi Able Thought, and welcome here … I would guess the beta of Affinity Designer for iPad will be deployed in the same way as the beta of Affinity Photo for iPad. So please have a look at this thread: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/41764-affinity-photo-for-ipad-customer-beta/ Hope that helps … Alex
  5. This is particularly useful, Ben! Everywhere …
  6. There isn’t a dedicated tool. But you can create a circle, duplicate it in place, hold down Command and grab a middle handle of the duplicate’s bounding box. This will allow you to resize your circle (ellipse) symmetrically around a center axis …
  7. Wonderful …
  8. I like it too. The only thing I would check is the weight differences between your letters. Typographically, that looks a little odd to me. It seems you just scaled down each letter of your words apart from the first one, and so the first one is always looking too heavy. It’s already noticeable in the headline, but the issue becomes more prominent in the words indicated in my screenshot.
  9. In my opinion, there must be something wrong with your setup, regardless of the operating system. You said that your canvas moves when you happen to drag “a” finger on the mouse or the touchpad. Do you mean “one” finger? That should never happen …
  10. Hi neuronsoup, and welcome here … It would be great if you could post a screenshot of what you have so far. It is a bit hard to visualize what you want to achieve on the basis of your description. Thank you! Alex
  11. I would say, this is the way to go … (Unfortunately, not all “unwanted” fonts can be disabled this way. Some of them are said to be required for the system. Well …)
  12. Yes, it is somewhat difficult to achieve what you want when exporting to SVG. I must say, I am not entirely sure about the perfect way to do this. I believe, however, that you can systematically use the methods described here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/4069-layer-clipping-vs-layer-masking/#comment-16825 For instance, you can clip your objects to transparent vector shapes to achieve the desired effect. I used two parent shapes for that purpose. In my screen shot, I assigned them a red fill in order to make them stand out. But of course, you will set the fill to transparent and keep a semi-transparent white stroke on the parent shape with the arrow. Now, when you restructure your document a little and clip your items to these shapes, you can export without rasterising anything. (I clipped everything to a rectangle in addition and exported to web.) Hope that makes sense … Alex Clip.afdesign Clip.svg
  13. You seem to be using one of the Blend modes (Erase) that require rasterisation …
  14. You can also use guillemets for your purpose: Mit feinen Arrangements schafft der »Paganini des Kontrabasses« … »Ich singe durch mein Instrument.« Or single guillemets: Mit feinen Arrangements schafft der ›Paganini des Kontrabasses‹ … ›Ich singe durch mein Instrument.‹ But usually, single guillemets are not used for quotes in German texts, unless in special contexts. So at least for the second example, I would not use the single guillemets. Still under the assumption that you have a German keyboard layout, you can access these characters in the following way: [ » ] (Guillemet links/öffnend): Shift + Option [Alt] + Q [ « ] (Guillemet rechts/schließend): Option [Alt] + Q [ › ] (einfaches Guillemet links/öffnend): Shift + Option [Alt] + N [ ‹ ] (einfaches Guillemet rechts/schließend): Shift + Option [Alt] + B Hope that helps … Alex
