  1. "Select Same" implemented in the Affinity Designer 1.9.0 update! (thank you Serif)
  2. Fantastic! Even the first simple version will be a gamechanger. Thanks for the update!
  3. Oh, holy smokes - didn't realize. Might be good news! @MattP Feel free to share details here that you think helpful for the over-the-top curious folks who think about this more than is healthy. Cautiously optimistic...
  4. I think the point was that it would be difficult to work with such a complex file using Affinity Designer because select same functionality is missing.
  5. "Five years of intensive refinement since launch have been dedicated to our unwavering vision of a powerful, super-smooth app which improves your workflow and allows your creativity to shine." "The engine behind Affinity Designer is built to handle huge documents so you can be confident in adding all those tiny details without any compromise to performance." https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/designer/ Every day I wish I could use Affinity Designer for its intended purpose - my design workflow cannot happen without select same functionality. I can add tiny details but there are always too many to select one by one. I would like to see redundant requests (and likes) continue until this thread is no longer needed.
  6. Very concerning to me that the bug fix and feature request issues I've stumbled on after a few days of testing Affinity Designer have been known issues for years. As tests of customer service and product quality, this is completely unacceptable. Affinity Designer is a good product and oh-so-close to being excellent.
  7. You are correct MEB - I seem to have discovered the known bug that allows me to select items on the canvas from a locked layer. Looking forward to the bug fix - thanks. Any chance you could add "Select same..." functionality at the same time? With these two issues resolved, I would sing a song of praise to Affinity Designer. Shall I begin writing lyrics?
  8. Oddly enough, as I was moving layers around, occasionally a layer gets "stuck" (can't select or move) until I toggle the lock/unlock setting or rearrange the order of layers. Perhaps it's a software glitch but it's an annoying one that suddenly makes me hopeful that the functionality exists if I were smart enough to figure out how to make it work. So bizarre that Affinity Designer looks so good but has some really weird feature omissions. Another obvious/essential feature is "Select same..." - missing even though seemingly easy to implement. And yes, I know that the Select same issue has been raised and discussed to death over the past few years. I'm often asked if I recommend Affinity Designer. I wish that my response could be as enthusiastic as I'd like it to be... frustrating.
  9. Discovered today that locking a layer in Affinity Designer still allows its contents to be selected and deleted, which is exactly what I wanted to prevent by locking the layer. Is there another way to prevent selection or modification to a layer's components?
  10. Had to open Inkscape (it's free darn it all) to select same this evening. This is ridiculous. Do something Affinity folks. No excuses. Josh
  11. Hello Dan C - any news on when this functionality may be available? As a new user, I am very excited about Affinity Designer but this one issue is a dealbreaker for me. I'm holding my breath... although not as long as those who have been asking since 2014. Fingers crossed.
  12. Thanks robinp - at this point it might be appropriate for Affinity folks to "feed expectations" with some specifics given the circumstances.
