  1. Thanks, but I'm not new. I've been following the thread for years so I'm well aware of how Serif staff treat us.
  2. We sure have a sweet chorus going in this echo chamber!
  3. Too right, I wouldn't have bought Designer if I knew it didn't have this feature. Now I recognise that's mostly on me because like you said, who would've thought in 2019 a professional design application wouldn't have a 'select same...' feature. Nonetheless, I'm not particularly keen on paying for a new version when I haven't got any value out of the version I bought due to a deal-breaking feature omission.
  4. I agree that people should charge for their time but this proposal is flawed in this case. Take the following situation: Two designers (of equal skill) quote for a job requiring manipulation of a vector file. One uses Affinity Designer, the other Adobe Illustrator. Who do you think quotes for fewer hours? It's absurd to suggest that you charge the client more money because you choose to use under-cooked software. That's not the client's fault! Any sane client would call you out and go elsewhere, somewhere—that likely uses Illustrator—making trivial work of an existing vector file.
  5. Crikey, what a story. I'm in the same boat as you; I desperately want Serif to take a chunk of Adobe's pie but without a core features like this I cannot in good faith recommend Designer nor is it fit for my purpose. That's a shame because it has a lot going for it and has potential to be massive. Instead, in its current state it's gathering dust in my Applications folder. Anyway, we digress and should keep it on topic.
  6. @JGD I'm saddened I have but only one heart to give to this.
  7. If I had known AD lacked a core feature like this (and then it be ignored for 5 years) I wouldn't have bought it; AD is virtually unusable to me in this state. To be completely fair though, that's on me, I shouldn't have assumed what appeared to be a "serious Illustrator contender" would have a staple feature like this. It's like if your favourite code editor didn't have a Find & Replace feature. Sure, you can use it but inevitably you're in for a world of pain that just isn't worth suffering through for the other good features.
  8. HAHA sorry, I didn't pick up on that. This whole thing is a joke though.
  9. Sorry, man, but you're having a laugh if you think this'll make it into 1.8. It's not even on the roadmap and like @MEB said above it's not likely to be in a 1.x version which places it eons away (still).
  10. Maybe the newly released CorelDRAW is the (temporary or permanent) answer to our missing feature woes.
  11. Don't hold your breath, it could be another 4 years at the current rate.
  12. Some great points there, @furtonb, I agree with much of what you said, particulary your last sentence. For me, Affinity Designer is a Lamborghini without wheels: It's incredibly capable and sexy but due to lacking something so integral it stays parked in the garage gathering dust.
  13. Being QA/Support and the conduit to the community, is that something you would mind finding out for us, please? I appreciate it's not helpful to the development team to give concrete details but you've told me the same thing as you did in this thread years ago. Edit: And apologies for being rude: thank you for the reply.
  14. It's sad to see this hasn't made it into the 1.7 beta. Silence is not helping. @MEB, I can only speak for myself but you would ease a lot of my anger/frustration being more transparent about when (or even if ) this is coming. It's been several years of it being 'planned' and nothing has been delivered or explained.
  15. I work around it by not using AD, I use Illustrator (and that's a bummer).
