  1. Instead of simply displaying a frame for the bleed, the area inside the bleed and outside the page should display as a dimmed version of the elements that spread out. Like this mockup I did.
  2. Great to know that. I will wait for the next betas, then.
  3. I know they are the same now. But what if the next betas tell me the same thing? Because I do have the official versions. They were copied back, instead of re-downloaded from the Apple Store. Could this be the culprit?
  4. I had to reformat my Mac a few days ago. I backed up everything and, after reformating, copied back everything to my Mac. That included the official versions of Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo, and also de beta versions. The official versions work fine, but the beta versions tell me that an official version needs to be present for them to work. Well, I have all applications inside the Applications folder. What can I do to make the betas work also?
  5. I liked the video comparison. However, I missed the mention to the ease of creating dynamic boolean operations in Affinity, in contrast with Illustrator. Or the ease of creating maskings in Affinity, when compared with the masking in Illustrator. Although lacking a few things, I do prefer using Affinity. I never liked Illustrator very much. I used to love FreeHand, though, before being killed by Adobe. I look forward to watch the comparison between Affinity Photo and Photoshop. I find myself using Affinity Photo more and more, but whenever I need to work extensively with masks and alpha channels in general, I go straight to Photoshop. It is so much easier and intuitive. Alpha channels/masks operations in Affinity Photo are just too cumbersome.
  6. Oh Take a look at this. It was AMAZING!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=866U1YKSpwo
  7. Is there any way to change an item that is a Master Page item, into an editable item, from within a page that has a Master Page applied? For example, I create a Master Page item that is a centered framed text box that is formatted but has no text or just a placeholder text. In InDesign, if I recall correctly, I could Command+click (or Command+double click) and the element that was part of the Master Page would become a regular page item, ready for editing. Is this possible?
  8. Will it be possible to link text between framed text and text on a path? Is it already possible and I'm just not getting how it is done?
  9. It's not just those characters. All characters with diacritics, inside a plain .txt file come out wrong.
  10. Yes, the same happens here. And, in several latin languages (portuguese, for example, that is my native language), most words have diacritics.
  11. I still think that a Blend tool is a must. Forgive me for being repetitive but I will post here a video that I created a long time ago, showing the abilities of the Blend tool of the defunct FreeHand (dead for over 12 years now): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3Rh8OcI9zU&t=10s
  12. One of the tools I miss the most is the Blend tool. I already posted some examples on how it is so useful, previously.

    Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview

    I'm also looking forward to know more about Affinity Publish and try a beta. Adobe InDesign is one of the best pieces of software from Adobe (Photoshop too... Illustrator is not so good, in my opinion). Although I love using InDesign, from what I know about using Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo, I know I will completely ditch InDesigner in favor of Affinity Publish. So, please, provide us with more information, please
  14. Back in my old FreeHand days, when a color was added to the palette, the default name would be something like 100c67m37y80k if the color was defined as CMYK or something like 150r208g90b if the color was defined as RGB. We should have a way to change the names of any selected swatch to the color components, automatically. Just add a "Name colors as components" option to the swatches menu.
