  1. How about a simple viewer app for iPhone that allows you to view Designer/Photo/Publisher files? And maybe add an annotation layer for notes (both typed and drawn)?

    How about a tape measure tool?

    Not really what I’m looking for.

    Where do you get this?

    How about a tape measure tool?

    This thread says the Measure tool was implemented in Designer 1.5: But where is the tool found? I know you can now see distances as you move one object nearer or further from another, but I was hoping to see an actual Measure tool where you can click between two points to see the distance. Is this in 1.5 and I just don't see it?
  5. Bingo, that did it, thanks!
  6. Good point. I've been a Mac guy since day one, but I have typically preferred Windows' approach of non-floating tool windows (though I hate everything else about Windows). Moving floating windows around on Mac has been a royal pain and I've always wished I could just lock them in place in apps that didn't allow it.
  7. Sorry, I guess my original instructions were a bit ambiguous. I want the entire oval to appear except for where the text is. So you'd see the full top and sides of the oval but the oval would end where the text is (so the opposite of your screenshot). Also slightly complicating matters is the fact the ending letter in my actual text is an S, making it a bit tricker to trim out the additional oval stroke using an overlying rectangle. So my end result should look like this:
  8. Sorry for what I know is a completely-noobish question, but I can't seem to figure out how to clip a segment out of a stroked (and unfilled) oval shape. Seems back in the day with Illustrator I could easily use the scissors (or knife?) tool to trim out a segment of the shape, but I can't figure out how to do this in Designer. I want the oval stroke to end at the points indicated in my screenshot below. The oval should end at the edge of the text on both sides and not continue behind the text. How is this done? Thanks so much in advance!
  9. Thanks. Seems this should be something worth fixing/improving on Affinity's end since it's so unintuitive. Let me easily drop a panel anywhere within the existing empty space in the studio.
  10. Scratch that. I was able to drop it into the studio on the right by dragging the panel above one of the existing panels (which resulted in the blue placement box). Trying to drag it to the open space below the existing panels did nothing (no blue placement box appeared). Weird.
  11. I tried that first, no dice. No matter where I click, drag and drop I can't seem to get the panel to join the studio on the right side, but I did manage to add it to the studio on the left side. Not my ideal solution, but better than floating. Thanks.
  12. Hi all, this is probably a dumb question with an obvious answer, but I can't figure out how to dock floating panels in the studio on the right side. For example, the floating Character and Paragraph palettes. I don't want them to float, I want them locked into the studio like the Color, Transform and Layer palettes. No amount of drag or click trickery is working for me. How is this done? Thanks!
  13. OK, that's what I'm doing. So why is my full-res image turning from this: To this when I downsize from 144 PPI to 72 PPI and then reduce the size of the image dimensionally by about half: I don't recall ever getting that kind of downsizing fuzz from Photoshop.
  14. I've never had a problem downsizing images in any other application so I assume I must be doing it wrong in Affinity Photo. Screenshots taken on my 5k Retina iMac always end up enormous so I need to resize them. So I open the image, select Document > Resize Document, change the PPI to 72, and then change the dimensions (say, by half) of the image. What results is a degraded mess. What am I doing wrong? I'm sure it's not Photo's fault, since it works so well at everything it can't possibly be bad at simply downsizing an image.
