  1. Ah, after posting my question, I saw your addition to your earlier reply, Ben. Awesome! Thank you very much.
  2. It seems I don’t understand precisely what you meant, Ben. I am sorry for my confusion. Are you talking about the video named “SnapToReflected.mov”? To my eyes, it seems as if the handle you are moving in this video only snaps to the angle indicated in my screenshot, but not to the indicated length of the opposite handle. Or does it?
  3. I didn’t understand that completely, Ben. I suppose Pšenda meant to ask if it was possible to snap the length of a handle A to the length of a handle B, where A and B belong to different, though adjacent nodes on a path. So holding down Shift during the second mouse drag will snap the length of A to the length of B?
  4. This is actually very cool, Ben!
  5. Hi chris.bannu, it seems that this feature is already implemented in the upcoming version 1.7: - Guides can be created and moved in all the core tools, plus a toggle to turn guide editing off https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/52300-sneak-peeks-for-17/ Looking forward to this feature myself … Alex
  6. I see … But then I would suggest that the adjustment layer shouldn’t visually affect all artboards beneath. This is somewhat misleading. To be perfectly honest, I would prefer to have it the other way around. I know, it’s not a typical application of Designer, but recently I had a PDF with a lot of manuscript pages that were scanned with very low contrast settings, and I had the idea to open this PDF in Designer and apply a Level adjustment to the imported pages or artboards (my screenshot). It would have been wonderful, if I could have exported the PDF again with the settings *globally* applied instead of having to nest the adjustment layers to every single artboard …
  7. Hi there, I am actually not sure if this is a bug, but I have the impression it might be at least an inconsistency. Artboards appear as standard items in the Layers list, and therefore I believe it would make sense, if an Adjustment Layer that sits on top of all artboards in a document affected all artboards in that document. At least, it does, visually. But when you export your document to PDF, your adjustments are not rendered into the exported file. They have no effect on the PDF output. Hmm … Alex
  8. As a workaround, you could export your document with the artboards to a multi-page PDF file and print from your favorite PDF viewer … Select Area: Whole Document in the Export Dialogue (File > Export). Complete.afdesign Complete.pdf
  9. You could use the Mesh Warp Tool. See my video. Select the pixel layer containing your newspaper image. Select the Mesh Warp Tool. Create a node for the Mesh Warp Tool at the bottom left of the mesh by double clicking the mesh frame and adjust the handles as indicated in the video. Repeat the same mesh adjustments in mirrored fashion at the top of your image. Just play around a bit to find a good balance. That should give you a useable result. Not perfect, but useable. Merry Christmas, Alex Mesh-Warp-Tool.mov
  10. A marquee selection is not a pixel selection? But what does it select, other than pixels? Now I am confused …
  11. This is highly interesting, JimmyJack! For it is actually very counterintuitive. You will have to enter Quick Mask Mode in order to make a pixel selection become a snapping candidate, and this new status of your selection will be preserved upon leaving Quick Mask Mode. Huh? I would consider this a bug. Furthermore, it only seems to work when “Candidate List” is selected as a snapping option. Very strange and very inconsistent. I bet this will change in the future … but it is definitely nice to know for the moment.
  12. Honestly, I don’t understand precisely what the problem is. Handtype, if you don’t want to do any math, use any expressions or alignment guides, why don’t you just do what carl123 suggested earlier? Have a look at my video: In order to center the pink star in the area indicated by your guides (note that the guides in my video are from your screen shot and not part of my document), use the Rectangle Tool and create an auxiliary rectangle covering exactly the intended area. You can also create an auxiliary layer from any pixel selection. Now move the star inside your rectangle or pixel layer, select both (Move Tool, Shift + click), and use the Alignment Buttons from the context toolbar of the Move Tool. Finally, delete your auxiliary rectangle or layer. Is there a reason to *hate* or *almost hate* Affinity Photo because of this simple procedure? Cheers, Alex Center.mov
  13. (Must be incredibly frustrating … )
