  1. Bumping because the original post is nearly a year old. Is there another solution? I've tried all of the above, and am still getting the error message in both Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo. I'm running MacOS 10.13.6, Affinity Designer 1.6.1, and Affinity Photo 1.6.7.
  2. I'm receiving the same error message, and have tried the solutions mentioned above without success. My other programs can write files with no issue, but trying to save with both Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo produces the same error message on my machine, rendering the apps useless until I can find a solution.

    Snap to nodes?

    I'm going to second this request, as it's a fairly essential part of any workflow that involves precision.
  4. Is there a plan to make a more efficient action to achieve this result? Simply being able to select a line segment with the node tool and hitting 'delete' would save a lot of extra clicking, especially for those of us who do this quite often.

    Boolean operations with compound paths

    Hi Matt, Thanks for your reply. Sorry I didn't make the file more self-explanatory. Thanks for giving me a workaround solution I can use in the meantime, I'll give that a try. Cheers, Jeff
  6. I'm experiencing this problem as well. I'm glad it's a known issue. My problem is I am running a 27" iMac as my secondary monitor, and a 24" Cintiq as my primary, so I can't use the disconnect method as a workaround.

    Boolean operations with compound paths

    Here is an example of what I'm trying to accomplish. Note that the color has changed on the bottom version after the Subtract operation was applied, and cannot be changed using the color sliders. Compound Boolean.afdesign
  8. After performing a boolean operation on a compound object, I am having issues changing the color of the resulting object. It seems like the program is creating an extra copy of the compound object when performing the operation.
  9. Currently both ends of the Wacom pen act as the same tool while drawing. Also, when switching between the brush and eraser tools, it would be nice if the size of each respective tool would remain independent from the other. Changing the size of the eraser shouldn't affect the size of the brush, and vice-versa.
  10. Another instance this would be useful:

    Option key when closing path

    Also want to add that the Affinity team has done a brilliant job, and I enjoy working with the program so far. :)

    Option key when closing path

    Yes, the handle extends to the left. I had Option-clicked the handle to arrive at the shape at left in the previous attachment, but was wondering if there was a way to join a straight segment to a curve directly without having to use an extra click to remove the unwanted handle. Option-clicking the end point (without dragging) to close the shape does this in Illustrator. Not a huge issue, but would save an extra click.

    Option key when closing path

    Not exactly ... I've attached a screen shot of what I mean. Say one wants to create the shape at left ... the default behavior creates the shape at right, requiring removing the extra handle created when closing the shape. Thanks again for your response. :)
  14. Thanks for your quick reply on this one as well. I create a lot of script lettering, and building strokes through helps keep the curves fluid. Alternate doesn't work as well for me in that regard. ;)
