  1. Of course you shouldn’t have to. It’s a bummer for sure. I guess that’s just one way to keep it moving. CC was buggy for me as well. Just as buggy as affinity at times. I think serif can put a choke hold on a good portion of user not bringing in real money for their work each month if they don’t get ahead of themselves. Just seems like the development team/QA department can’t keep up. I smell subscriptions ha. Assuming they just need more money...
  2. @Andy05 I never have to fine tune results. They are always spot on. I just always wait until I’m done to make the conversions. So it’s not a bad work around for a $25 program ha. Takes me 10mns to make true vector layers out of my fake vector brushes to get true vector support on export. The key is using high-quality “vector” brushes
  3. Hey @Andy05, are you having trouble due to no true vector brush support? Just getting away from straight vector lines? I have some “vector” brushes (stretched PNG) that I use in my illustrations and when I’m happy with the stroke size and brush, I export a 32000x32000 PNG on a transparent background, then convert the high res PNG into a SVG using third party freeware/online APIs. The result is a layer of many curves that can be manipulated. If the “vector brushes” are sharp the result are pretty amazing. It’s a crutch that I have turned into a weapon.
  4. If you’re just looking to have control of layers and grouping, you may have luck with convertio.co. probably the coolest API I’ve used to turn lower quality JPEGs and PNG into vectors. If the document is terrible quality, you’re not gonna have much luck. Dialing in the exposure before converting can help avoid unwanted vectors. it’s not gonna translate back into text though like the resources above. All curves. At least you’d have a good quality version that could be scaled and moved around, if that was the desired result.
  5. Did you add the folder where the templates are stored on the computer? sometimes my templates aren’t shown when I first pull up the template page, but if I click presets and back to templates they show up as long as the folder has been added.
  6. If your Text is converted to curves you can make a node point on the circle and tapper to the M as needed. Or subtract the text curve from the circle curve with both selected. Transparent text knocked into a circle. Or a different workflow could be clip masking, depending on how you want things presented (what’s smashing into what) If you have all your magnetic snapping turned on you can easily move the curves node to interact and cover the circle as you wish or vice versa. I made this using that transparent technique. Designer.pdf
  7. Not that I see. Ive always had issues with color picker results being off when using video software to frame up a card, and always had to finish with scopes anyhow. I actually use DaVinci Resolve (software pictured in that link). Not the most useful tool. Not to say that other software can’t give great results. Couldn't tell you on plans, Nothing in 1.9.1 though.
  8. Yeah, I see how that could cause issues with the ways it’s treating the frame and text with that action. I know if you convert your text to curves, you would be able to achieve that. Not the greatest work around if your doing font heavy projects though... fully committed ha
  9. Awesome. Never knew you could enter percentage at X/Y - that will be helpful in this process. I guess I should just make some assets as you mentioned. Might as well. I think what I’m looking for might be a feature request. I want to be lazy and grab 30 curves in a group and quickly fan them (in, out, in inverted, out inverted, center V, center V inverted, in/out from center pivot, and a few other fanning modes) using one action. Preferably this action could be linked to whatever value you wish, X, Y, Rotation, etc.Then expand into color commands. It’s a common feature on digital
  10. That’s just the most logical way I can think about it, not knowing how it’s coded. You’ll eventually get reprogrammed by designer and naturally grab bottom right. “yes... master serif”
  11. It’s a bit relative on what is selected. A normal shape or curve can be adjust as you wish while holding shift to adjust from any side. When you grab a text frame and a text size, designer seems to be treating them as two different items, which they kind of are - so it makes sense. You are adjust the work space and font at the same time. I guess that’s the way I think of it.
  12. If you where to select > shift > select in the layer panel, or shift click, or select multiple things anyway with the move tool on the screen - you will then have multiple groups/layers or “items” selected (however you have your work organized). Say 3 Circles and 2 text frames. Then you would want to use the far bottom right to adjust them all proportionally. Holding shift will break the horizontal/vertical linking.
  13. Thats the one you're looking for - bottom right. Same things happens with grabbing multiple layers. You’ll eventually be trained to always grab there ha. Grabbing the other edges would be cleaning up the framing.
  14. Did you use the frame text tool to insert the text? Or Artistic Text?
  15. Thanks, the HSL adjustment layers work well. I think I was overthinking that one ha. Heres what I mean with fanning: fanning degrees1.pdf Appreciate your time.
