  1. See the attached screenshot. It's the same in all three Affinity apps, on a 2018 Mac mini with Big Sur 11.2.1 and a 4K display (4096 x 2304; in the System Preferences the resolution is set to "Default for display"). On an older 15" MacBook Pro with macOS Catalina 10.15.7, that panel looks fine, the text isn't truncated. The Affinity apps are all v 1.9.1, but I've noticed this issue on 1.9 as well.
  2. This is a problem I've encountered several times in the past. I was hoping it's been fixed in v 1.9.1 beta but it's still broken. Every time I use the Perspective Live Filter on a file, save and close it, when I reopen the file the perspective is broken. Here is a sample: The above layout was made using Affinity Photo, but the issue occurs in 1.9, 1.8 and probably earlier versions too. I simply cannot rely on the Perspective live filter. It's useless.
  3. I've been working today on a layout in Affinity Designer where I initially set the margins to 40 px. Several times I've noticed how out of nowhere the margins were set back to 0 and I had to adjust them again and again. Must be a bug somewhere. (Affinity Designer 1.8.4, macOS 10.15.6)
  4. That's not exactly the same behavior like the "leading override" in Affinity and I've explained above why. You may not need that separate leading override option, but it may be useful for others, so I wouldn't call it unnecessary. Affinity just provided an additional option which InDesign hasn't. That's a good thing.
  5. Here is the catch: the "leading override" value in the Affinity apps takes priority over the paragraph leading. This allows one to change the overall paragraph leading freely, while keeping the local leading set to a fixed "override" value. This is something you cannot do in InDesign.
  6. Dear Affinity, could you please add this hex color field to all color modes, not just for "RGB Hex Sliders"? Many of us have to copy and paste hex color values all the time when working with colors, and having that field available everywhere on that panels it'll greatly improve our workflow. I pick colors using the HSL sliders, and each time I need to copy or paste the color value, I have to switch to the RGB Hex slider. That's an unnecessary step. And once you add that field everywhere, you can drop the RGB Hex Sliders option completely. There is no need to have two RGB sliders there. Thank you.
  7. There is something wrong with that document. 19 GB with linked photos, it’s beyond huge.
  8. I never use the Color Chooser window, but there is indeed a bug with the size of that spectrum area in all color-related popups. See the attached screen capture. The height of the color spectrum should not change (and please let the tall version be the default one). Recording-2.mov
  9. Uh, this is serious and it also affects Publisher. I can't rely on the boolean operations anymore. Please fix this issue ASAP.
  10. Is this issue still being addressed? I've just bumped into it (blur tool not working, checkerboard pattern on cursor until I disable the Metal Compute acceleration) in 1.73 and 1.8 beta.
  11. That's because by default all Adobe CC apps share the same color management settings. So Acrobat will just use the same default CMYK profile used by InDesign and the colors will be the same. Remember: the color values in RGB or CMYK only represent a particular color when associated with a particular RGB or CMYK color space, described by the color profile.
  12. The EPS file format does not support transparency. That's why the layer effects in AD are automatically flattened when exporting to EPS. There is nothing you can do about it. For what is worth, your EPS file looks fine in Illustrator. The effects are still flattened into bitmaps, but at least they blend completely into the background.
  13. One serious issue I have with the Affinity apps is the slow PDF export. Very annoying when you're in a hurry and have to edit and export a dozen of files to meet a print deadline. A year ago I posted this message here on the forums: One way to deal with this issue is to move the export operations in the background, allowing us to open and work on other files at the same time. Adobe did that with InDesign a while ago. Possible?
  14. It works fine here. Have you checked for updates in DefaultFolderX?
  15. The best workaround for me right now is to make the full size artwork in Designer, then place it into Publisher on separate pages and export the print-ready PDF from there.
