    Is this implemented yet?
  2. Hello! after Adobe pulled another stunt (with Lightroom this time) I'm preparing for an Adobe Free Future™! I've come back to Designer (ßeta 1.6/12) — and what I saw made me very, very happy. Cannot wait till I see what you guys do with Publisher! As you have guessed I'm still missing some features before I can ditch Illustrator all together: selecting objects by type/look (see screenshots with Graffix Select Menu) lockable guides and the making guides from objects. Also: split in to grid. overprint on a per object (fill/stroke) base (not only in the swatches). ability to choose a font (and other things) from the contextual menu. Despite its name, it's not very contextual right now. plugins/scripting would make Designer much more powerful of course. See for example what you can do with Python in DrawBot of Nodebox offset path (could be scripted?) more transform options like "transform each", which is very, very handy in Illustrator … Anyway, can't stress enough that you guys already did a fantastic job, making such a powerful app from zero. …without the income of subscription-model ;-). Keep up the good work! — Benjamin

    Affinity Designer Customer Beta ( - RC7 GM2)

    Hey MEB, this problem is still present in AD 1.4 (app store) on OS X 10.10.5 (tab goes from X → W → Y → H → R → S ) — other than that, fantastic update! Update: same problem in Mavericks…

    Affinity Designer Customer Beta ( - RC7 GM2)

    Hey MEB, thanks for your reaction. The TAB works, it only does so in the wrong order ( X → W → Y → H instead of X → Y → W → H). OS X 10.10.5 b.

    Affinity Designer Customer Beta ( - RC7 GM2)

    BUG — can't edit Y coordinate in transform dialogbox (for an artboard). Also: Tab should move form X to Y to W to H (and NOT from X to W to Y to H — this is not logical). EDIT: after creating some artboards: editing the dimensions in the transform-box don't work (X/Y/W/H). Inputed numbers keep jumping back to initial number.

    Expand stroke

    Hey MEB, thanks for your quick reaction! Sorry — I've missed the menu command :rolleyes: So I'll change my request to add this command to the contextual menu ;-) Or maybe better still — customizable contextual menus! Just dreamin'… thanks again! Benjamin
  7. Hey, something i'm terribly missing (and that I use a lot in Illustrator) is the expand stroke function. This lets you convert a stroke of any object into a fill. Sometimes this handy in logo's (because sometimes the strokes are not scaled proportionally and your logo is ruined when scaling). thanks! benjamin

    File icon is blank

    I have nice previews in the bigger sizes — only in column or list view (smallest size of icons) the file icon itself turns into an ugly plain white one.
  9. Hey, can't find "document setup" in the file menu — how do I change from a white to a transparent background? thanks!

    Text anti-aliasing

    Hey MEB, thanks! Looks promising — But is it possible to get the crisp drawings (included in some fonts for the smallest sizes) like in the attached image? thanks! Benjamin

    Text anti-aliasing

    Hello, is there a way to disable text antialiasing? Or choose a degree (eg PS "crisp", "smooth",…) thanks!
  12. Hello Just purchased AP as a quick & unbloated alternative to PS (stupid cloud). I work as a print designer and something I use to do a lot in PS was converting images from RGB to CMYK with a specific colour profile (eg: sRGB -> ISO coated 300%). However, if I choose "document -> Convert ICC Profile" in AP I only see RGB-profiles (and no rendering options). I can convert of course with "document -> Colour Format", but that doesn't give me any options on how I want to convert my images… Am I missing something? kind regards, Benjamin
