  1. Well I thought I would add to this topic. After googling solutions I came across a solution on the Adobe forums. Just giving credit. I'm running OS X 10.12(Sierra), what seemed to work was connecting the printer(HP) via USB cable rather than using a wireless path. After doing so the custom size option was not greyed and now available. It worked! I also checked my system preferences afterwards. There were two icons of the same printer in system preferences under Printers & Scanners. I kept the "last used" one, and deleted the other. I had been trying many solutions none of which worked. Hop
  2. Affinity's lack of interest in offering or developing an array of basic tools in Designer speaks to other priorities. There are so many missing basics that any exteranious features are undermined. Making it frustrating to work details when the foundations are missing. Transform, very limited selection options, Trimming..... basics. Jowday's comment's have merit.
  3. With respect Xzenor, I believe that ten pages of mounting frustration in this forum hosted by Affinity is mind boggling if the company were to claim ignorance. Not least to mention being aware of one's market. Then to hear that it was available in past versions(DrawPlus)! Ignorance or intention which is it? Again I do appreciate your pointing out the axed features.
  4. Xzenor, thank you for that piece of info about DrawPlus. Damn! that gets me fuming. What #@XX!!?? is going on......!? Less brand($#@!) polishing, more product!
  5. Lack of basic tools for an extended period undermines the faith of many who bought in to support Affinity Designer. It was my hope that by purchasing Affinity Designer I was helping contribute to a worthy option to AI. I've had to hold back on running more current MAC OS, because my aging copy of CS6 Illustrator still has many basic tools AD does not. Not to mention the time invested in getting up to speed on software that seems lacking.Then there are the hassles of working on a machine with outdated OS and unsupported security issues. If the future bares no fruit in the way of the missing bas
  6. After reading multiple recent discussions on the Apple Support site I chose to go back to OS X 10.12.6(restore) dumping OS X 10.13 High Sierra(recently installed Nov.15.2020). I did a restore with Time Machine after rebooting in recovery mode. The process was simpler as my computer does not have a SSD. No APFS files to deal with. All my App Store apps are back.
  7. Stick with Sierra. My mistake was to move to High Sierra. It affected any apps that came through the App Store. Two of those being Affinity Designer & Photo. Days of trouble shoot with no good results. Booking a session with my local Tech.
  8. A thought that has my support. Recent experience has me agreeing. Keep it simple.
  9. v_kyr, thank you for your input. I do agree that this seems to be a light on the problem. It seems to be affecting only the apps that came through the App Store. Other core Mac OS X apps Text Edit, Mail, Preview are unaffected. My old CS6 Design Standard is fine after the Java for OS X 2017-001 was applied. Ironically my Affinity Designer & Photo just keep crashing at launch.

  10. Having the same problem and same generated report. My software apps Designer and Photo are not loading on my Mac running OS X 10.13.6(just updated from OS X 10.12). Crashing before even loading. I purchased both apps five years ago, and done the subsequent updates with no past issues. I updated to 1.8.6 on Nov.13th with no problems. Then I updated my Mac OS on Nov.15th. Now the crashing problem. Could not find any answers in the forums. I've tried deleting and reinstalling, signing in & out of the App Store, reinstalling from the App Store, restoring apps with Time Machine, restarting in s

  12. Pointing out different apps, or work arounds(fudging something in a pixel based approach) is a distraction from the main request for a true Free Transform tool. I've used other vector based software for decades, so yes I can figure out some crazy work around too. I prefer working in a vector based precise approach within Designer. Hell that is why I purchased Designer! Being able to precisely adjust in vector allows for the layering and adjustments of a well constructed VECTOR image. Converting a vector element to pixels to adjust(Freely), then having to redraw, redo, different software, or w
  13. I’ve signed up to the forums to add my voice to the request for a true Free Transform tool in Designer. Enough of the bush league approach with the current Transform tool. The “Free” or missing aspects to the current offering is a real fail. If a user is going to be able to really go forward with Affinity Designer, and step away from the Adobe thing, a Free Transform tool is a basic must; warp, distort, you know….. a Free Transform tool. Hell, Affinity Photo at least gets the weak version Perspective tool. The Designer vector users have to go begging for an up-grade or out source to another ap
