    Locking Guides discussion (split)

    As a layer fine, but there's a guides manager so obviously there. Sooner rather than later please!
  2. Thanks very much, look forward to that. It is already an excellent program, well worth the wait!
  3. Old style figures from (eg) recent versions of Adobe Garamond and Jenson set perfectly correctly in text, but when I use the old style figure option for page numbers they letter space widely whatever the alignment. If I use an old-fashioned font with a separate small caps file they seem ok. Any ideas? Thanks

    Thank you, Affinity!

    Yes, this is quite amazing for a Beta, very impressive indeed, thank you. It may not do .idml but has a really good crack at .pdf files.

    Cropping, again

    Thank you; I'll stop looking for it! One for my wish list though.
  6. Apologies, this has almost certainly been covered, but I can't find the answer: When I rotate using the crop tool in Photoshop it automatically crops the original image area (i.e. no out of frame pixels) In AP I have to manually crop down, i.e. the image is rotated to include empty space. I prefer the PS behaviour; have I missed something? Is there a way to replicate it in AP? It would also be good to be able to have a way of using the last-used crop ratios (almost always original ratio for me) as in PS. Thanks for any advice.
  7. Thanks, that does the trick on the move tool (I still think that artboard and move aren't the two tools I'd nest by default.) As to the other, you go file>open> choose your file and nothing happens until third go, but sounds like you're on the case. Hope the weather in Lisbon is cheerier than in England!
  8. What am i doing wrong? Two things that I'm finding a bit tricky! 1) It generally takes three goes to open a file; the first two attempts just do nothing. Worst in Photo but also sometimes Designer. 2) The Select/Move tool and Artboard tool flyout. I generally use the artboard tool once at the start of a project, but use the Move tool every few seconds, so find their combination very awkward, particularly when working with text, when use of the V shortcut has regrettable effects. is there anything I can do about this?

    Imported bitmap

    Ah, that made me check the bitmap again. It had a very slight feathered fringe to it, just enough to show up on the pdf as a line. Trimmed the fringe, and it's gone. I'm really sorry to have wasted your time; hope you have a good weekend off. Thanks tony

    Imported bitmap

    Thanks for being so quick; that's not quite what I meant. If you look at the attachment I've put a pink ring round the corner of the line that's showing up (on a screenshot), but I don't think should be there. box bug.afphoto

    Imported bitmap

    It's here, I hope: the containing frame of the cut out image (the crib scene) shows up on a pdf, when I'd rather it didn't. Thanks Tony PS I forgot to say, great programme and looking forward to publisher! carols.afdesign

    Imported bitmap

    I'm having a bit of difficulty with an imported afphoto file, against a solid background with a grain effect; the containing frame shows on a print pdf, faintly. The image is a cut-out on a transparent background. Any ideas? This seems to occur both in designer and the beta. Thanks
  13. Is it possible that you'll add the ability to open afphoto/design files to any of your windows pc products? I use both systems to some extent and it would be useful. Thanks
  14. Blending objects is the one thing from Illustrator that I really miss. Otherwise it's all very good indeed, thanks.
