  1. Hi Affinity Community, .ai file support would be absolutely amazing. I know it is a proprietary format, but if there is any chance that this would ever happen, then it would open so many more doors to collaboration, at least for me, and all the different people that I work with :-) That's all.

  2. Hi Affinity Community, I would like the ability to horizontally and vertically center text inside a text box. Keep in mind that horizontal centering is not the same as justification, which affects the text itself. I want to align the text to the center of a text box, regardless of the justification of the text. This kind of thing personally drives me nuts, and Sketch, and even Apples apps, like Pages, Numbers, Keynote, etc... allow for this to be done. Another little feature that exists in Sketch is the ability to auto-resize a text box to it's own text, which is just fantastic. I spend so much time fiddling with reshaping text boxes in Affinity Designer it is starting to drive me nuts, and these little features would go a long way in fixing these issues for me. Anyway, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me :-) Cheers, Richard Nash Los Angeles, CA
  3. disappointed this did not land in 1.5, which means that we won't be seeing it anytime soon, i gather... could you please also update the roadmap? Symbols is still on there, but that landed in 1.5 :-) Thanks! :)
  4. Hi Everybody, Symbols are great so far, but is there any way to share symbols between multiple documents? Is that what the assets panel is for? Thanks! R
  5. Due 1.5 and the awesome symbols feature, I would like to open up some sketch files in AD. Is this possible now, and of not, or there plans to support this in the future? Thank you, R
  6. Just curious if anybody has made any AD Asset Libraries yet...for free or for money... 1.5 comes with an 1OS 10 Asset Library, just wondering if there is an Android one, or macOS, or Windows 10, or whatever... Cheers, R
  7. I went into the document setup to change the colorspace from rub to cmyk but i'm getting the pinwheel of death...is that ok? The application is basically freezing up on me, which sucks, cuz i need the colorspace changed for printing...today...
  8. Maybe I'm missing something obvious but i cannot figure out how to change the direction of a liner gradient inside a stroke. I have a shape with a fill and a stroke and i want both the fill and stroke to have the same gradient going in the same direction...i can change the direction of the gradient in the fill with the gradient tool, but it does not seem that i can change the direction of the gradient in the stroke as well... Please advise, and thanks :-) Richard Nash Los Angeles, CA
  9. i think i figured out how to make it work...when i made a rectangle and used that as a mask it did not work, but when i made a new layer, then put a rectangle on it, THEN used it as a mask, it worked...go figure...
  10. I have a folder, or group, of a bunch of stuff in Affinity Designer, and I want to mask the whole thing in a rectangle...it seems easy to mask one layer with another, but when i try to mask a group with a layer things seem to get...funky...dunno how to describe it...this is pretty easy to do in Sketch, but seems to behave strangely in AD... Please help :blink: thank you :)
  11. hmmmm...i think i asked this incorrectly then...i don't want to create a path, but actually create a shape with a curvy side and have the gradient shoot outwards from the curvy side in the same shape as the curvy side...i don't really know how to explain this better... like....i want to make a rectangle, but one of the sides of the rectangle would be ark-ed, either convex, or concave, then i want to apply a linear style gradient to the rectangle, but the gradient would alter it's shape to follow the curve of the ark-ed side, rather than just be linear... I hope that makes sense a little bit better...
  12. End of the year meaning, like, september-ish, or end of the year meaning, like january next year?
  13. There are radial, linear, elliptical and conical gradient types, but is it possible to create a subtle curved path and have the gradient follow that shape? That would be just awesome if that exists :-)
  14. Please see the attached pic ... notice how the layers and groups are different colors? this is very distracting and hard to follow, because it looks like every other layer thingy is highlighted. Is there a way to make them all the same shade of darker grey? This is driving me nuts! Also, when i command click on something in the workspace i would love it if the layers panel jumped to that things as well...is that possible also? Thank you :-)
  15. I meant "hit the mask button in the layers panel" but i understand what you mean...coming from the photoshop world over here... :)
