  1. I recently deleted a font folder that (I think) was installed by MS Office. Now when opening .afdesign or .afphoto files i get an error alert; Missing Fonts Some fonts for 'someDocument' are missing. The document might not appear as you expect. The following fonts are missing: Arial The error shows on all documents, even ones that dont have, and have never had any text objects. New documents dont show the error but resaving old documents does not fix it. nb; I have never used Arial for anything so Im not sure why it chose to complain out that one.
  2. Dealing with Slices in AD is a nightmare, I have resorted to using CS6. Snapping does not work for anything but other slices. The Slice selection tool does nothing, the create tool has to be used carefully to select. Some sort of automated process is needed, Slices from Guides is the most obvios I can think of
  3. Uninstalled and redownload AD from Mac App Store and it works like normal again. Might be 1 star review time for Yosemite. Get your s#!t together Apple
  4. Saving an afdesign that already existed works fine but creating a new document fails. Failed to save document: name.svg <- not saving as SVG. The file was an SVG but its saving as afdesign Save failed because the file could not be created. Please report this to Serif. ------------------------------------------- File::OpenUnmanaged fopen E001 [errno = 2]
  5. Exporting to SVG fails silently, printing this to Console. I'm not sure where it getting the path from. Its not what was selected. Its a folder that was deleted days ago. com.apple.appkit.xpc.openAndSavePanelService[902]: +[NSSavePanel _generateFileInfoForPaths:sandboxPermissions:]: sandbox_issue_fs_extension failed for: /Users/Geoadm/Documents/folder/that/doesnt/exist/file.svg Exporting to PNG crashes AD with ths report report. Process: Affinity Designer [838] Path: /Applications/Affinity Designer.app/Contents/MacOS/Affinity Designer Identifier: c
  6. Since Yosemite updated to 10.10.5, AD crashes when exporting any format (except .afdesign) to any folder other than the root of Documents. I was working around this by using the beta, that exports fine. But since AD updated, it still crashes and the beta will not run saying "Retail Version Required". I think this is caused by sloppy work at Apple. Is there any way around this or is there a new beta coming soon?
  7. After a bit more messing around I dont think iDraw supports vector fill very well either cause when creating new patterns they seem to get rasterized and pixelate when scaled. The one attached above was a default pattern, adding new patterns is the problem. So my current arse about workflow is: Design in AD, export as SVG Open and set fill in Inkscape Open and export for use in iDraw Not the best solution but it will have to do for now
  8. The attached file was created with iDraw. It opens in Inkscape and browsers but not in AD. Thanks Untitled.svg
  9. From searching the forum I can see this has been asked a couple times but its not listed in the pinned index or roadmap. So Im just wondering, its this feature coming? When opening SVG files that have pattern fill, the fill renders empty. I have owned AD for nearly a year now and while it is my prefered app to use for vector I find myself turning to iDraw or even Inkscape as AD doesnt support required features. It makes recommending AD to anyone a bit hard when apps that are half the price or free have more capabilties.
  10. Test case: Create new document. Add a triangle shape create new layer Add elipse shape Select both layers and modify R or S value using the sliders from the transform dialog. Result: AD has no idea what it's doing Once this happens you can zoom out, move the shapes back in to position and it appears to then work as expected, but the first time it goes mental. I stumbled accross this trying to come up with alternative to mesh warp however apart from flip & rotate there doesnt seem to be any sort of warp/transform in AD at all. Im sure I seen it happening in the video when AD w
  11. Is making the guides manager window display guide positions relative to the anchor point set in document setup on the list of improvements? As it is, no matter what anchor point is set in documents setup the guides are always relative to the top left corner. I realize the anchor is to do with resizing the canvas but if the guides displayed position values relative to the set anchor it would be a god send for game development
  12. Na it happens with any document and appears to be random. What causes a crash at first can work the second time, or sometimes the 10th time. I ran the disk utility / cleaning maitenance to make sure it wasnt anything like that causing it.
  13. When exporting to PNG, AF crashes with the below unless I export to the root of the Documents directory. edit: scratch that, happens in the Documents root as well. Spend more time exporting than editing... :( Process: Affinity Designer [726] Path: /Applications/Affinity Designer.app/Contents/MacOS/Affinity Designer Identifier: com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner Version: 1.2.1 (1.2.4) App Item ID: 824171161 App External ID: 812434373 Code Type: X86-64 (Native) Parent Process: ???

  14. I think the price is a bargain but I hear you about Apples currency conversion. Dont feel too bad though, the Australian $ is worth .98CAD but the AppStore US.99 is $1.29 here. Thats pretty much right now given the current exchange rate but its been that way since we were paying the equilevant of US$1.25. They are quick to raise prices on exchange fluctuation but take their time dropping it.
  15. Are there some limitations to exporting for Photoshop? I have exported a pretty simple document from Affinity Designer (3 layers, 2 are raster, 1 is vector with only 3 objects, no fx except stroke) but when opening in Photoshop CS6 is fails with "Could not complete your request because an unexpected end-of-file was encountered." The file was imported from a PSD but I used AD to modify/add to the shapes as it much easier in AD tahn Photoshop. I'm starting to wonder if the exporter has some issues. I was playing around with SVGKit - https://github.com/SVGKit/SVGKit and SVG files exported fr
