  1. I think those are instructions for rotating the canvas. I want to rotate an object - square, circle. I know how to do it, it's just that as soon as I click the rotate handle it turns into a resize handle.
  2. I select the object in Designer, move the pointer until I get a rotate handle, press the trackpad and - BOOFT! - I have a resize handle. Now I'm old and a bit blind, but can't be the only person for whom this is a problem. I've tried turning down the trackpad gain and it doesn't help. Is there an accessible way of rotating an object? FWIW I'm using a MacBook Air M1 and the latest versions of Affinity and MacOS.
  3. What are you trying to achieve? Changing the dpi doesn't downsample anything. To downsample you need to resize an image, not change the nominal dpi.
  4. Well my system crashes when I try to print with every version of MacOS and Affinity Designer / Photographer / Publisher since February, maybe earlier. It's a 2019 iMac with 72GB RAM and it does it even with a newly-rasterised image. Preview and Capture One print fine. It's an Epson 3880. The OS, drivers and Affinity are kept up to the latest non-beta release.
  5. +1 please - in my case I simply want to roughen the outline of text so simulate a typewriter. I was more than a little surprised that having converted the text to curves that I couldn't roughen the vectors. Maybe playing around with some sort of brush effect on the path will help, but currently in a hurry...
  6. Vielen Dank, Joachim Garry, ah, yes, it's frame text. I just need this for block diagrams and room layouts, so what I was doing was probably near enough, but the 'constraints' tip helps enormously
  7. All of the Affinity apps - I just glide between them. I know I won't get this in Photo persona; but will work in Designer or Publisher whichever will do it. And I just want a line border, solid or dashed If there's an easy way that does border but not fill that's fine. If the easy method does a fill as well that's a bonus.
  8. While I've been using Affinity for years I've never found out how to add a border to a box containing text without creating a rectangle, a frame text, matching sizes and grouping them. It's a fuiter. Is there a direct method?
  9. That's about it really! I export 46 Mpixel TIFFs out of Capture One, a dozen folders and 10-50 images per folders and would like to leave Capture One to stack them and just save the stacks overnight. Zerene Stacker does this for me for focus stacks, but here I'm looking for median stacking. Nothing sophisticated, I'd be happy with a .afphoto with the same name as the first stacked file in the source directory. Would anyone else find that useful?
  10. Ah! Thanks Walt. Export persona isn't something I need so I'll see if anyone else points out a problem and change over. ta d.
  11. I've told my Mac to open all Affinity files in Publisher so I can use studio link. That means every time I open a document with artboards - ie nearly all of them - it threatens to convert them to spreads. Is there any downside to letting it just do this? And if so perhaps being able to tell AP to to ask every time would be a plan.
  12. Somebody - re the inadvertent turning off of undo - is going to be buying the most ENORMOUS round of drinks tonight :)
  13. Ah sorry Carl - I hadn't seen that you had attached a sample, that might very well be the answer for bulk editing and the book version, with the vector crop for the awkward ones or work on the wall. Bingo! d.
  14. Yes, I agree that vector plus blur is quicker than messing about with selections when there's little contrast between object and background. You can come and see the final result from 6 March at The Small Print Company in Derby. Re Carl's suggestion, I'll give it a go although I note in the sample image the young lady is standing in front of a brick wall, my backgrounds are a bit more challenging. Thanks both d.
