  1. This is what I did: Affinity Designer is closed in Finder Right click a PDF and choose Open With > Affinity Designer Designer opens on PDF import settings dialog (not sure if I waited fully for this to happen) in Finder Right click a second PDF and choose Open With > Affinity Designer Wait for crash crash dump: https://gist.github.com/gingerbeardman/7dfe685e60594dde590a4ee1ea100dd8 crash file attached. Affinity Designer_2019-11-03-152554_matt.crash.zip
  2. I'd also love the ability to "switch off anti-aliasing" I design in vectors but want to view/render/export as solid colour pixels. What are the chances? Do I really have to use Illustrator? http://www.icoeye.com/blog/?p=220
  3. My task is to draw 1-bit artwork for the forthcoming Play Date handheld gaming console. I want to draw in easily modifiable vectors, but render/view as solid pixels. I draw shapes in Designer/Vector mode When in Pixel Persona I use Pixel view mode But my lines are all anti-aliased with many shades of grey, whereas I want them to be jagged. I want my lines to be comprised of only white pixels on a black background. In Photoshop I can draw in vectors and get solid pixel results by turning off anti-aliasing. Can I do this in Affinity Designer?
  4. From the crash log you can see the crash is in the Serif/Persona layer visibility code. But let's see if it ever happens again! Hopefully not.

    Huge Crashing Issue

    Do a backup, or zip up your Affinity preferences. Then you can try uninstalling using AppCleaner https://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/ making sure to tick all related files. Then reinstall.
  6. When dotted lines are pasted inside another object and are exported to SVG the resulting file does not appear as intended in certain viewers. My workaround to get a good SVG file, is to load the exported PDF into Boxy and use that to save an SVG. Original file: curve.afdesign SVG export (BAD): curve.svg PDF export (GOOD): curve.pdf PDF to SVG using Boxy (GOOD): curve-boxy.svg viewed in quicklook on macOS viewed in Boxy SVG on macOS:

    Call for Camera Images

    You can find hundreds of RAW sample files at: http://www.rawsamples.ch/index.php/en/ as CC-by-nc-sa which I think is fine for your test images use case. Including one written by my first love digital camera the Pentax Optio S4 which has a hidden RAW setting (aka "Bayer Mode")
  9. So, to refine on where it does and does not happen, witness this video: Window sized so that there is not a scroll bar on layers panel = BUG Window sized so that there is a scroll bar on layers panel = NO BUG This is 1.6.1 release but the same happens with the Beta. DoorDoorScrollBar.mov
  10. Oh, I uploaded to the first link I found, so in that case - sorry about that! - I did not realise they were per-user dropbox links. It's not that my file was too big, but rather that I do not want to share it publicly. My setup: macOS 10.13.6 MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2013) 3 GHz Intel Core i7 Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB 23" Apple Cinema HD Display (1920 x 1200) To reproduce: load DoorDoor.afdesign file (do you still need it?) expand "B reflect" group collapse "B reflect" group a layer is now "missing" (shadows in 1.6.1, "Y reflect" in Beta 1.70.4) Interesting points: it happens if my Affinity app window is full screen (hiding menu bar) it happens if my Affinity app window is maximised (taking up all space except menu bar) it happens if my Affinity app window is a little smaller than maximised if i resize the window to a *much* smaller size I cannot trigger the bug (in a few, limited, attempts) See below post.
  11. Video attached. Have uploaded artwork to Dropbox "Door Door.afdesign". Expand and contact any of the "reflect" layers as shown in the video. Another layer will become blank. You can get it back by using Hide layer and then Undo. Affected: 1.6.1 MAS Beta Vanishing Act.mov
  12. Wow, that plugin is amazing. Here's hoping for scripting or plugin support in Affinity.
