  1. In order to add its overlay to the existing native OSX finder window, it needs to do a realtime screen capture in order to render its clunky interface in the right location. It's far from ideal! and it is not a good solution to this problem.
  2. Tudor - please don't try and promote a plastic sheet as a solution to a bucket with a hole. Several people have also commented in response to your suggestion to the effect that this is treating the symptoms. Default folder X does a real-time SCREEN CAPTURE and RENDERS AN INTERFACE AROUND THAT WINDOW! - It is a hideous patch. - If you like it then fine, enjoy, but stop distracting from the root issue here.
  3. In the mean time for mac users.... a work around: 1) keeping a finder window open in your working folder 2) any save, save as, export in Affinity, then Select the export or save and bring up the location save dialogue. CMD tab to the finder working folder. Click drag a folder and CMD tab to Affinity save location window Drop and the location is updated. SAVE! I actually getting very good at this now! - Not sure of a work around for Windows. 😞
  4. There I was with Affinity 1.10... Hoping... From within my own little organised folder structures. I open a simple jpg in affinity... ..."save as" and "export" completely ignores the source path for that simple little jpg - as if it is completely unimportant. If Affinity made a car, it would be a fantastic drive, efficient.... economic... ....but you'd have to clamber in and out through the boot every time. *Sigh*
  5. If you find one, please please let us know! Twitter poll version here: https://www.robgee.co.uk/ ask them by commenting on posts on facebook? https://www.facebook.com/affinitybyserif
  6. Ok - Understood - I agree with Samuli's comments - Default Folder is a clunky workaround that doesn't really do the job and it needs to screen record to render it's GUI correctly?!? Serif just need to prioritise a mod to the Save and export Code, push it to all 3 apps and we will all be smiling in our current working folders :0)
  7. I think most people who use this forum know how to create folder and structure their files to their liking. ( I don't think you even need to be creative to do that. ) Most GUI editors (of text, image or audio etc) out there will by default give the option to save any derivative or exported file in the same folder as the source file currently open. Even MS office does it on a mac! Its basic usability. Don't make the user do stuff if they don't need to... ..and if the user does want to save elsewhere, then there are all your fine time-saving suggestions above 🙂 The point of this thread - the behaviour of the save/export dialogue in all of the affinity Apps Back to Philipp (P10n')s initial Post Suggestions way back in 1967: 1.) Save As: Default to the folder where the current file lies.| 2.) Export (pdf etc, but also for palettes): Default to the folder where I last exported the respective file type when the current document was open.
  8. Oh for a "Same as source" button - What about a new open source branch?
  9. Thanks @dominik - Those select options are great 🙂 Did the trick nicely
  10. Excellent - Installing latest Beta version now🙂 Will let you know 🙂 And Thanks!
  11. I notice that I can't expand the stroke (create a shape from the outline) of different groups of objects, even when all selected. I have over 100 groups of items and need them all to be grouped again after the Expand function has completed. doing it manually would take an age. Any ideas folks?
  12. I have asked them about it on their Facebook Group - Commenting on their posts is the only way to do it: https://www.facebook.com/affinitybyserif and on their twitter: https://twitter.com/affinitybyserif If we keep asking about it then they might move it up their to-do list?
  13. Ouch indeed - I hadn't realised this simple request had been over four years in the asking.
  14. It looks like it might do the job - I will look at the trial properly 🙂 Though at £33 / $35 - that's more than half the price of Designer!
  15. Thanks for that, but am I right in my thinking that if I "export" or "save as" a file that was loaded from a source file in folder XYZ, DefaultFolderX would not automatically default to save it in folder XYZ. This solution is no faster than my current work around of always keeping a finder window open in the current working folder and dragging a folder from Finder cmd+Tab into the affinity save dialogue to select the what-should-be-default-anyway destination folder. If any new file of any format is loaded from XYZ folder, then XYZ has be the current default folder for all saves and Exports. you have your sidebar favourites there ready if you don't want this. A 3rd Party solution is not a solution to this very Affinity-specific folder management oversight. I'm not knocking DefaultFolderX though 🙂
