  1. first of all, why doesn't an image get loaded into an ImageBox right away? that's about 98% of the cases that you choose a cutout for a layout that fits into the grid (the one with the checkbox would be very good as a minimum, though). Then, why don't I see the bounding box when I resize the image content (looks like the position suddenly changes if the cutout is smaller than the image box - or did I miss something). Why don't I see the cropped parts of the image semi-transparently when I scale the image inside the box. At least that would be an improvement, regardless of which program you find better in image handling. ohhohhh and an absolute no go is the proportional change of an image when you drag a middle point. Non-proportional scaling on the outer box should only be possible with an additional key, default should always be proportional scaling.
  2. hi, sorry i don't understand since the first beta how you planned to handle images (cropping, scaling, picture frames etc.). I would never be able to work effectively this way, or do I just get something wrong? It reminds me so much of PowerPoint and it frustrates me. Just a video compare to Indesign in the (quick test) working process with Publisher. Please do it like quark or indesign for the pro's 😬 Standart Indesign handle with Image, then Publisher complicated handle with image (sorry, something went wrong with the videos, can't delete the empty one, see the last two): ind.mov ind.mov ind.mp4 pup.mp4
  3. Hi, a strange behavior in the last weeks. When I start Affinity Designer (without open any Document – also in the newest version) promt the RightFont automatic Font activator want to activate the Roboto Font. Is this normal, and why Roboto?
  4. I know, but after the convert to Textframe, you can't change the color.
  5. Okay, now I'm confused. Before you said that if you choose the default palette for e.g. RGB, it should appear as default for all RGB documents in the newly created document? right? that's not working. The other thing was just the wish for more efficient handling of the color palettes.
  6. hi, of course i can make a short video, hope that's in german ok? But what would be really desirable is that the created color palette belongs to the document. If you have many projects with corporate colors, then selecting the right color palette every time you open the document is not comfortable. color.mp4
  7. hi, I have the Designer version 1.8.3 (osx sierra) and it does not work for me. When I save a palette the confirmation comes, but after a restart of the program only a program palette comes back, which I created years ago for another project. Why is it so complicated? Why don't the colors appear in the document I created them in? (as in Illustrator/Indesign etc.) In my current UI project the wrong palette is always displayed, which is annoying.
  8. Affinity/Serif, please hire an professional ergonomist who is familiar with Interface usability and user logic. This is not a job for programmers. The thing with the page export in reverse order, because the artboards are always inserted at the top of the page, although they are then automatically inserted from left to right, is completely confusing. Sorry too many WTF moments lately with Affinity Designer. On so many levels such a great tool but then so many teething troubles which are really annoying.
  9. wow, as I said, I don't like the Affinity color Panel, but now I hate it 🤦‍♂️
  10. Anon, you're right, I changed the profile in between when I exported the document for the style guide, because there were big problems with the export of transparencies and then the screen project was exported as CMYK (because of PDFx3), the colors were not correct (fortunately I had found a RGB print profile, but too late). So I tried to solve the problem in the document settings via the profile. If I had known (there was no message like: The color values change irrevocably to web-safe colors) which is the consequence, I would have left it, I had to reset all colors for 2 hours, because they were partially changed (not web-safe) and other colors that were web-safe remained the same. In addition, two different values within one color confused me completely (like in the screenshot). Since I have problems with the colors in Affinity Designer, I created the Global Colors first. Who of you knew that sRGB and AdobeRGB have different color values? in one document for one color? 😰 Another problem, I set the default color palette for RGB projects to system hex and for print to my custom CMYK palette, but the setting as not applied. When I open a new document a custom program color table is always active. This is annoying too.
  11. I'm pretty confused right now. I started a pretty big UI project a few days ago and I'm pretty far along. I'm just looking at the colors that I defined as Global Colors in the color palette (annoying that sometimes the choosed color is selected and sometimes not) and don't know what's going on anymore, depending on the color palette I have DIFFERENT hex values? WHAT? which logic did i miss? I have created and named some colors and all of them have different values .... OK GOT IT, one is Hex the other RBG but why it looks so similar, very confusing 😳
  12. Hi, I use Affinity Designer more and more often for a wide variety of projects, and currently for a second extensive interface project. Unfortunately, I can't find a "fast and effective" way to measure everything for positions that the developers need in order to efficiently convert this into code. Now I have seen that there is already a kind of measuring tool: https://affinity.help/designer/en-US.lproj/index.html?page=pages/DesignAids/measuring.html?title=Measuring guides That's great, but unfortunately you cannot make the measurement permanently visible. Therefore my suggestion: Select the objects to which you need distances (top bottom left right) and the proportions (width and height) and press the right mouse button > Show Measurements in New Layer. Done. Best with open text and contours, then we can color it individually and all web and interface designers will love you even more 😋 so long
  13. I also wait a long time for a feature that allow me to fill the Textbox with a background color. In any Interfaceprojekt I use this to reduce the Layers for Buttons. A clear understandable structure is the key, that many people can work on one project. That include less layers as possible. I remember sketch also have this option, don't understand why Affinity Designer don't
  14. Thanks, I've just tried to changed to Apple-Standart (then some Shortcuts disapears), now it works like expected, when I go back to the Serif-Standart nothing changes (the shortcuts there was here before don't come back)
