  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. Would you mind updating the Roadmap? Symbols is still listed as on the way, but it just landed in 1.5... Also, it would be nice if the roadmap reflected the status on certain features... We have been waiting on a warp/mesh tool for a couple years now, and still nothing, which makes it hard to completely switch over to AD from AI. Thanks! :-)
  4. 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! :)
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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

    Stroke Properties Bug?

    Making a design using a line with a stroke, and i want to vary the thickness of the stroke, so I open up the stroke properties and try to change the "size variance" slider, but when I move the slider nothing happens to the stroke. The preview in the properties panel shows what it should look like, but the stroke in the design is not updating to show the result. Not sure if this is a bug or by design, but it's not doing what I would expect it to. Thanks for any help :-) R
  9. Anybody here at all? Is there any way this can be addressed pronto super quick? Am I doing something wrong? Is there a workaround in the mean time???? Really super need help on this one.....and really fast as well......
  10. And AD is also eating through, like 8 gigs of space on my hard drive trying to do this process...sooooo not working at allllllll... *very panicked faced!!!*
  11. Pinwheel of death forever and can't switch back to the app and it eats up gigs and gigs of hard drive temporarily... Need this to work now... :o
  12. 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...
  13. 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
  14. 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...
  15. 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 :)
