  1. The Pathfinder equivalent tool found in Affinity Designer needs some work. I tend to create logos by overlapping shapes, using the divide tool, deleting the excess then recombining them to get rid of the lines. This works perfectly in Illustrator, however when trying the same method in Affinity Designer, I'm left with stray points and lines, it's essentially just combining the shapes like a group instead of merging. The space in between is to minuscule to be shifted manually. I don't know if it has something to do with you 1,000,000x Zoom, but the tool should somehow be reworked to allow the combination of cut shapes where the edges seemingly touch. Precision is great, but this is too much a distance a line thickness away shouldn't count. Even better give the option to toggle in on an off like you do magnetic tool. I'm currently using 1.42 and there seems to be a Memory leak issue when using the Pathfinder tools. If I highlight a bunch of objects to join, the program will hang, and the memory will slowly dwindle until most of my computer freezing causing me to force quit.

  2. I created System Palettes instead of application Palettes as I use the same colors across multiple Apps. The problem is, when I open them in Affinity Designer, they aren't sorted alphabetically (it might be an issue with Affinity not using the OSX Dialog Box, which I like...feels more integrated), But When you have color variations with similar names I would like them to be grouped together. I'm aware I can sort the colors within a palette, but not the palettes themselves. Is there anyway to fix this?
  3. About pages, I was hoping that you implemented it similarly to how Sketch has it (I'm thinking that's maybe what Hombre meant). When I do UI design, I like to have a scratch page, then Mockups, and then an export page. I know I could just duplicate artboards, but it's not the same, Pages allow me to also differentiate between different directions altogether without creating a new document. Anyway just my two cents. What guys are doing is great, simplifying other bloated software giants, while improving a lot. I pray you do the same in Publisher (have you seen inDesign lately? Jeezus! it's daunting). I'm looking for an alternate and will be happy to beta test later this year.
