  1. Yes. That would be great. It's not a major game changer, but it just seems like it was over-looked at some point.
  2. Problem: Like many on this board, I am a gradient aficionado. Maybe I'm just a man in transition, but many design sites dedicated to gradients only provide hex values for you to copy and paste. This proves to be a bit of a quagmire and requires some gymnastics with Affinity designer. You now need to do a screen capture, shrink it down and try to sample an edge. I don't have AF-Photo, so this may be an issue there too. Request: It would be splendid if the color picker off the gradient menu and gradient map included an input to display and paste in a hex value. Below is the current menu and
  3. Hello - This has been mentioned on a number of posts. I would like to formally and informally request the great AD developers to consider connectors, magnetic lines, whatever you want to call it. As you know, the purpose of these lines is to support making flow diagrams and make moving objects with lines easier. Similar to visio, omni-graffle, and creately.com/ This would be a giant quiver in the AD toolbox for UX designers. If it could be made flexible enough to apply to other objects besides lines, it could conceivably support the idea of "bones" ... which could be great for animations etc. This may be a different feature though. If you support this idea, please consider liking it. Thanks!

    Export slices to SVG

    ... Nevermind. I discovered the Export Options are not global options but you have to define per slice. Grrrr.... Makes sense though.

    Export slices to SVG

    Hi can someone explain how to export slices to SVG? Here is what I am trying: I have a bunch of slices > I go to Export Options panel and select SVG (for web) > Then I select all my slices (checkboxes) and press the button called "Export Selected" ... it then generates a bunch of .png files. What am I missing? Thanks for your help. I'm using AD 1.4.2.
  6. This bug has been there since the Beta version. It is odd and confusing. I'd love to see this finally get fixed. It annoyed me enough today to come here and enter a ticket for it myself. Thanks for already taking care of it and I look forward to seeing this fixed in the next release. AD rocks!
  7. I love AD, but find cropping and dealing with the canvas size terribly frustrating in it. For the most part, everything in AD is very fluid.... but to crop the canvas, I haven't been able to figure it out. I believe the only way to do it is to open the Document Setup window and type numbers in boxes and repeat until you get the crop just right. If there is another way to do it besides using the Export Persona, I would love not to have to do all my cropping in PhotoShop and then import into AD just to size the canvas right. Is there a way to crop the canvas using a tool? Trim functionality is definitely part of making cropping simple and easy. I would love to see this on the roadmap... it's not a differentiator, but it seems like a "table stakes" item.

    Constrain Proportions Inconsistency

    Thanks.
  9. Fabulous application... For some reason when I resize an image it constrains the proportions without me holding down Shift. I have to hold shift to not-constrain proportions. However when I drag a rectangle out, I have to hold down shift to constrain proportions (keep it a square). I have not gone all through the application, but sometimes you have to hold shift and others not making the app feel finicky. It'd be great if your developers/designers could agree to do it one way and stick with it. My preference would be to always require the shift modifier to constrain proportions. This has been ingrained in us from years of using design tools. It keeps us in flow. Thanks for all the great work.
  10. ... just to pile on to this, since AD programmers tend to make things more awesome than what we expect... Enhancement: You could also throw in the ability for line segments (with/without arrowheads) able to be attached to other objects... a la Visio/Power Point for use in making diagrams / wireframes / flows etc. Last I checked AI, FW, etc. did not have this.

    Merge Layers

    AD: Group then Rasterize = PS: Flatten selection/CMD+E
  12. Did this get implemented yet? I can't find it.
  13. The spacebar modifier also does not work that allows you to move the selection. These are all important items that help you work in flow without thinking about the tool.
  14. The plethora of shapes in Affinity designer is simply splendid. If the programmer is looking for more shapes to code, tell her to consider the coveted "L" shape. It is useful for drawing arrow heads, Tetris blocks, and to create the word LoLLipop. I have attached an image of the Firework rendition of the same tool. The AD programmer will undoubtedly figure out how to improve on it by including rounded corners, etc. Keep up the stupendous work.
