  1. OK, so this is driving me crazy as hell. I use transform panel all the time. And I would expect that when I press Escape key I will return to the workspace. But no - the cursor stays in the field of Transform panel and I have to either click inside the working space to get away. Too cumbersome and strange behaviour. For example I need to change the size of an object - I go to Transform Panel, change the size and then I want to move the object around using keyboard. So after pressing Escape I should be able to go on, but the cursor is still within the transform panel and when I click on keyboard arrows to move the object, its size changes instead... I'm not sure if I'm explaining it right, I hope so. Maybe I can set up this Escape shortcut - but I don't know where exactly... If you can help I will much appreciate it. Thank you.
  2. I was going to post this question actually on Publisher feedback and accidentaly dropped it here, too. I did not know about the shortcuts options in preferences - well, I did but didn't see the options for Export at first. My bad - thank you for help, you've made my day! As of now it seems perfect for me - having Cmd + E shortcut for Export as I do not need it for anything else. Howeve this might change in the future, depending on my needs. Thanks!

  4. Hello, InDesign has a simple keyboard shortcut for Export: Cmd + E. I still don't understand why did you have to use what is probably the worst shortcut ever - Shift + Alt + Command + S. Only Photoshop uses this shortcut I believe and only for the Save for Web command. But Command + E would be just brilliant for Export, don't you think? And everybody would understand it. Everybody could even guess it right away. And - this shortcut isn't assigned to anything in Publisher right now! And it would be really good to have this same shortcut for Export in all of your programs - Publisher, Designer and Photo. Please. Thank you. David

  6. Dear Affinity people, I've encountred a strange behaviour when saving files. I've always thought that the program will offer as a saving location the folder the original file was placed in. But when I open a picture in Affinity Photo, for example, make some adjustments and try to save it or export - it will show totally different location, without much sense. If I save it in some random location, the next time I open another file from a different folder, it will not even offer the last used location for saving - this would still be strange and make some sense but even this doesn't happen. So how exactly does the saving work? Why it doesn't offer the original location first? Thanks. David
  7. Hello Affinity people! Is there a chance we could see larger file previews in Finder / Path Finder? As of this moment all Affinity files' previews are tiny compared to PDF, JPG and all the other types of files, for that matter. Talking about Spacebar previews. Please check screenshots. Thanks in advance! David
  8. Here as well. This topic was actually discussed earlier this year with the last update on July 7. And the bug hasn't been solved yet - even 3 months later. The guides should of course be displayed for the specific artboard. While now they're relative to the first artboard. Not good for the proper guide setup. David

    File previews

    I did not. Totally forgot. Which I did right now and everything works. Thanks! :-)
  10. Hi guys, Maybe I'm doing something wrong but there is no preview of the files I create in Designer? Are they only represented in Finder/PathFinder byt Affinity Designer's icon? Really? What if I have a folder with 20 different versions of design and I don't see immediately what they look like? How do I then choose which one I want to edit? Only by its name? Even if I press the spacebar to get a large preview it still only show the icon? See the screenshot to see what I mean. Thanks. David
  11. Hi guys! Just testing the Designer before I buy. Maybe I overlooked something, but how do I align to objects? I mean - how do I choose one of them to be the other one aligned to? It seems I can only select both of them, then click on the alignment icon in the toolbar and align both of them horizontally for example but this moves both objects to a different position while I only need to move one of them. Thanks. David
  12. Hi guys, I've read a lot about Affinity Designer and now I'm on trial version thinking about buying it. Well, I'd rather have a light UI but I can live with a dark one. :) But, the guides. The guides. I use them all the time, can't go without them. And Designer makes it really really difficult. - why do I have to use Guides Manager all the time? Why can't I just create a guide and immediately change its location on Transform Tab in Studio just like I do it with regular objects? - why can't I at least snap Guides Manager to Studio as a new tab so it's always there and not taking work space? I cannot even resize Manager's window - right now it is unnecessarily wide - it coudl definitely be half the horizontal size. - why can't I copy guides as I can in AI? For example I have a file 1000x1000px, I decide to make guides every 100px. In AI I just go to Object>Transform>Move, set up distance and then Copy and Cmd+D nine times and its done in 10 seconds. In Designer I have to create 10 new guides in Manager, each one I have to doubleclick to set the distance. - what if I make decision to move one object and need the corresponding guides to move with it? It can't be done, right? So I move the object and then I have to move I don't know maybe 20 guides and since I cannot move them all at once just by selecting and dragging I have to go to Guides Manager again and change the location of each guide separately? - if I create a new file but need the guides from the other file - there's now way to move them over, right? Or just copy all of them and paste? The price for this software is very good and reasonable even without the present discount but this guides thing will probably make me stay away from it. And I really want to leave Adobe for good - it's expensive and I hate their subscription model. Is there any way you could make guides as easy to deal with as in AI? Please? Thanks for hard work!
