  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. We've been "bearing with you" for quite literally 4 years for a planned feature. This is absurd. If I didn't give a rats about Affinity Designer (or Serif in general) I wouldn't be here badgering you, but I do care. It's not only impossible to stop using Adobe products for missing features like this, it's also impossible to genuinely recommend to serious users.
  4. I agree but it seems the importance is not understood. It's been 4 years since the first post.
  5. In a marketplace where you're up against "The Goliath" Adobe Illustrator I would've thought this would be great for boosting user acquisition. If people are looking to support the "David", AKA the more innovative, nimble guy AKA AD it should be made as easy as possible to transfer that existing work, right? This seemingly minor feature is high impact enough that it makes me hesitant to drop Illustrator (despite having bought AD and enjoying many other great features). Please, please, please bump this up the priorities.
  6. Removing unused colours and selecting same objects by colour/stroke/fill style are two things I find myself wanting to do a lot and as my current knowledge goes, have a significant time-cost to work around. But, I'll admit I'm still learning the program so perhaps I'm missing something. Here's a situation I found myself in just yesterday: I had made a palette out of the colours in my document (great feature BTW) but I had a two-tone gradient backdrop so it pulled dozens of colours from said gradient and placed them in my palette. I thought to myself, "no worries, I'll shift click them like the OS and bulk delete them" but couldn't find a way to do that. Am I missing something or is the only way to delete multiple colours doing them one by one? Seems like Affinity have thought about (and done a great job at) creating palettes but not thought about cleaning them up.
  7. I'd love this ability between PS and AD. I'm looking to leave PS behind but without being able to paste paths out during the transition period makes it very hard to use AD.
  8. I don't in any way think this is just for UI work, for the record. I totally agree with you (and your example) of using it in real artwork!
  9. I couldn't agree more. Shortcuts are paramount to maintaining a good workflow and even more important to retaining artists looking to give up PS. I'm finding it difficult to use Affinity purely on the fact that many of the advanced shortcuts in PS aren't present in Affinity. For example, I use the number keys running along the top of the keyboard a lot to change opacity while using the move tool in PS. I tap the 1 key to make the current layer 10% opacity, tap 5 to make it 50%, tap 6 and 7 in quick succession to make it 67% opacity and so on. That said, my example wouldn't be solved by customisable shortcuts, in this case that would need to be a developer-sanctioned feature.
  10. Thanks Matt, The Protect Alpha is exactly what I talking about for the second case so that's great. It's also good to hear there's more layer functionality under the hood that doesn't have a UI yet. It's sorely missed. I hope you guys can fix this soon!
  11. Hey Matt, thanks for the reply. It's not a poly curve I was using, but just an ellipse. I don't know if that helps clarify anything for you.
  12. I agree. To not use the desktop metaphor of right clicking for context menus is a waste; It can add so much speed to a workflow. I'd love to see this considered for those frequently used sub items.
  13. Hey guys, I hope I haven't missed something in the UI but basically I'm after a "lock transparency" feature that works the same way as in PS. It's very handy for blurring things that you don't want the edges to shrink/grow. It also has the secondary benefit of being able to paint inside already painted pixels without going outside the bounds. (I know this can be done by masking, but locking transparency may be the workflow of many already and means you don't have to create an extra layer to mask with).
  14. As a UI designer, it'd be mighty handy to have a blur beneath effect. I believe it's pretty self explanatory, but just in case it would automatically blur any pixels below it to the desired value. This would allow a much more rapid workflow for testing out UI iterations on different backgrounds, instead of having to constantly adjust duplicate layers with masks.
  15. Hey guys, I have several shapes on a layer and I want to cut some of them out and paste them on another layer. I'm using the node tool to select the desired shapes and when I cut them, it cuts all of the shapes on the layer, not just the ones that are selected. When I hit delete, it only deletes the selected shapes, as expected.
  16. Multiple effects would be yet another reason I could make Affinity my mainstay for GUI work. Being able to apply multiple strokes, or shadows to an object would be a boon and surely win a lot of Sketch users over.
  17. +1 from me. This is infuriating, along with guides not snapping to a marquee (of which I made a separate post about).
  18. Hey guys, I have a suggestion for creating a uniform marquee from outside the art board. So currently, creating a uniform marquee (by holding ⇧) works in the same way it would if you didn't hold ⇧. When I'm dragging a marquee in (while holding ⇧) from outside the art board, I would expect the marquee to be uniform as it enters the art board. It seems like a small thing but also seems odd having the same result when I clearly chose to hold the modifier key. You could take a look at the way PS does it for an example. Thanks!
  19. Hey guys, Just picked up Affinity today after seeing it as Editor's Choice and then watching the video. It looks great. One thing that immediately struck me as odd, was that I couldn't snap a dragged guide to the edge of a marquee (like in PS). This is a big part of my work flow, as I'll measure out a specific size marquee and then place guides around it. I've read in a lot of posts while trying to find out if it's just me doing it wrong that the snapping system was undergoing changes. Is this still the case and could this be added if it's not already possible? It could just be that I'm doing it wrong, somehow.
