  1. I was just looking for the same "feature". What can I say - something I have not said before...? Affinity continues to amaze me with their non-functioning feature set, that is left up to the customer to figure out whether certain things doesn't work due to a bug, or because they were put in there for "eye-candy" but not yet implemented. As a result, I have to waste time to come to the forums, start searching, maybe someone has already posted a question about the "issue" and maybe I can find out if the issue in question is a bug or simply a not-yet-implemented feature. For god's sake, why don't you just hide the un-implemented features and make them available when they are truly working and available!? My main tool is illustrator, but every once in a blue moon I start up ADesigner to see if it's in working condition yet. And every time I end up closing it. The "5 year in the making" constantly resonates in my ear. So if ADesigner was released in, what, 2014 (?) it means since 2009 you guys were working on putting features in the UI that doesn't work yet. Nice! (...sarc...)
  2. This is still not fixed: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/20237-adesigner-the-whole-grid-and-design-is-shifted-after-show-context-toolbar/?p=94208
  3. A picture worth a thousand words. Look at the attached file. Shows my settings for the grid and the results. When you create some lines using the pen tool and then do a View > Show Context Toolbar the whole grid and design will be shifted. See attached. STEPS: 1. Create a new document. 2. Use the pen tool to create a few lines 3. Go View > Show Context Toolbar 4. Awesome! Note: You don't have to create a grid, but if you do, notice on the attached screenshot that part of the grid is shifted up from the document (visible on the black area above the white document window.) Thanks for all the bugs, Serif team! Can I have my 50 bucks back now, please!? And why on earth wasting your time on a Windows version? You should be focusing on fixing the bugs first! El Crapitan 10.11.3 ADesigner 1.4.1 I'm so sorry I wasted my money on your products! I barely use them because every time I do a very simple task some bug shows up and I always have to fire up Illustrator CS5 on my windows machine to get something done. I can't believe you guys never heard of TESTING! What a useless eye candy! And no, I am not irritated and pissed about this single bug. I am irritated and pissed that you have DOZENS, if not more. ...5 years in the making... right... 4.5 years daydreaming and 5 months of coding is more like it...
  4. PROBLEM: Once you create and apply a style that has a stroke width specified, an incorrect stroke width will be applied to the path once you apply the style. To make things worse, the stroke width will vary depending on the zoom level. STEPS: 1. Use the pen or pencil tool to create an open path. 2. Set the stroke width to 5px (could be any value, but let's work with 5 for now). 3. No fill. 4. Select the path and in the Styles palette's menu select "Add Style from Selection" 5. Deselect the path 6. Draw another path using the pen/pencil tool 7. Apply the style you just created by clicking on the style. The stroke with will be 5px as you specified. 8. Select another style to apply to the stroke (doesn't matter which one). 9. And now select the style again you just created. 10. Notice the stroke with is now some other value (like 2.93px) as opposed to 5px. 11. Zoom in to the document 12. Draw another path using the pen/pencil tool 13. Apply your style you created. Now the width of the stroke is yet again something different. If I save a style with a specified stroke width, that stroke width should be applied to the path when I select the saved style. If the stroke width saved in the style is 13px, then once I apply the saved style to a path, the stroke width should be 13px regardless of zoom or other factors. That is the whole point of saving a style. ADesigner 1.4.1 OS X El Crapitan 10.11.3
  5. Open the Brush palette. 1. Pick a brush. 2. Modify settings 3. Click "Reset". Works. Now... 1. Pick a brush - brush A 2. Modify settings 3. Pick another brush - brush B 4. Go back and select brush A 5. Click "Reset". Doesn't reset brush A to it's original settings. APhoto 1.4.1 El Crapitan 10.11.3
  6. Thanks MEB, yes I do have ADesigner as well. However, when the grid is visible, all tools snap to the grid: selection brush (...and that's a selection too!) gradient tool myself (...aka pen tool) the various shape tools the text tool I'd say neither the pen tool, the shape tools, or the text tool is needed for photo editing (let alone RAW) but they still snapping when the grid is visible. So not sure why the rectangle/oval selection and the crop tools are not. That would be pretty basic stuff since the selection brush already snapping. Anyhow. Most of the time I just fire up my good ol' PC and work in CS5 or use Pixelmator/Sketch on the Mac.
  7. Thanks Alex. Yes it does provide a workaround. Although insanely tedious for any type of interface layout/design.
  8. Hi, This has been annoying for me ever since day one. I am using a 27 external monitor for my mini. When I create a new document or open an existing one, as long as the document size is smaller than the available viewport, the document will zoom to the full possible extents of the viewport. If you create or open a 32x32 pixel document, just for the sake of illustration, then your full viewport (nearly 2560x1440) will be filled with a huge white, empty canvas (in case of a new document), or with a pixelated blob (if an existing document). This is due to the fact that the document will be resized to the available viewport space. Why!? I understand that when a new or existing document is bigger than the available viewport size, it will be scaled so the full document will fit and be visible in the viewport. But if the new or existing document is smaller than the available viewport space, why can't the document just be opened at it's actual size and let ME (aka the user) decide whether I want to zoom in on it or not?
  9. Sorry for the premature question but I don't know why the selection marquee is not snapping to the grid, when the grid is visible? Usually when the grid is visible and snapping is enabled, the selection rectangle snaps to the grid as I draw the selection out. This is not happening in APhoto. Any reason why not or am I just missing something really obvious? Thanks.
  10. Sorry, if this has been posted already (search didn't show up results), but would like to see a "Stroke Selection" feature in APhoto. Eg, create any combination of lasso, circular, rectangular selection and stroke it with a color and a specific point size. Thanks.
  11. I totally agree, and get that...but...the app is being advertised both on the home page and on the AppStore that "...5 years in the making" not "1 year in the making". So that's 1/4 of PS development time. Taking into account that computers are at least 4 times as fast as 20 years ago, you guys had all the time needed to pull a full featured Photoshop in under 5 years. With that said, I want to see results not excuses! ...just nitpicking... :-) ...and practicing people management skills for my upcoming promotion... :-)
  12. I hope this will be added soon. This is such a basic functionality and neither the selection nor the crop tool is snapping to grid.
  13. Hello, I've downloaded a set of free vector playing cards (http://all-free-download.com/free-vector/free-vector-playing-cards.html). You can see on the above link that the different suites are in different files, so you need to download 4 files in order to obtain the full suite. Once I downloaded them, I've created a new file and placed all suites in this single file so they will be all in one file. I saved this file as an SVG and attached this file as a zipped file so you can test the issue. STEPS: 1. Unzip the attached zip file. The included SVG file was saved out from ADesigner v1.3.2. 2. Select any card. Let's say you select the first ace of clubs at the top left. This is a grouped artwork, as you can see in the layers palette. 3. Go to File > Export and select PNG. 4. At the bottom of the export dialog, select "Area: Selection without background" 5. Select all contents in the first "Size" text field (it should say "182 px"). Select the "px" units as well. Notice the proportional lock icon is closed, so the change will be proportional. 6. Type in a different size without the units, e.g. "181" and press TAB. 7. At this point a warning will be displayed in the dialog for a a brief moment, but you can't actually read it because the app will crash. For a brief moment, you will be able to see (right after you press the TAB key) that the other dimension text field (height) will become an erroneously huge number. Probably this what is causing the crash. SVG file and crash report attached in the zip file. ADesigner 1.3.2 OS X 10.9.5 Mavericks Mac mini late 2012 report-assets.zip
