  1. Cool, thanks for logging the issue Lee -- I wasn't sure what was intended but good to hear it will be fixed down the road.
  2. Yeah, that does work! Well, cool! Who needs Ai now -- just gotta actually learn how to use AD instead =)
  3. Yeah, using Rhino macOS, I can't export PDF or print PDF files to any destination other than an actual printer, so I have yet to find a viable Rhino linework -to- Affinity Designer pipeline. It's really the only thing I use Illustrator for, so I really wish Affinity would make this work but I understand us Rhino users are niche. Sadly, I have to keep using Adobe until this works.
  4. I see that iCloud has automatically added an Affinity Photo folder to my iCloud after I saved a copy from my iPad to iCloud>Documents. But why is the Affinity Photo folder greyed out in my iCloud when selecting a destination to save copies to on the iPad app? I would prefer to save my files to the Affinity Photo folder, but it's no biggie because I can just drag them from iCloud>Documents to the iCloud>Affinity_Photo on my Mac. Thanks.
  5. This is a technique I use a lot of in Photoshop, where I either lock the pixels on a layer so whatever I paint only paints into those existing pixels, or I subordinate another layer from above in the hierarchy (the ALT + LClick trick) which achieves the same result. Is there any way to do something like this in the iPad Affinity Photo? EDIT: I see on the macOS version what I am referring to is a check-box on the top dash called "Protect Alpha". Thanks!
  6. I too was having issues, good to know the bug has been identified and will be resolved. Otherwise great app -- I am very excited to dig into this more. 5 Stars in the app store; gotta share the love and resist the evil empire of CC.
  7. Dave, thanks for looking into it. Surely there's a way around it for us Rhino+Affinity users, we'll see.
  8. Thanks for your replies Dave and Mike -- I'm currently away from my workstation and can't provide a sample file but I think Mike is correct that Rhino *.ai exports do not have an embedded PDF or EPS stream (as far as I know at least). Is there any plan for Affinity Designer to accommodate *.ai files that do not have an embedded stream? Or is that simply legacy old stuff not worth implementing? Either way, I'm sure there's a work around for Rhino-to-Affinity when it comes to *.ai exporting-importing, and if there is I can't wait to find it.
  9. I love how Affinity has promised to keep their desktop publishing application products single-purchase forever -- it has me truly enthusiastic to someday get off the Adobe train for good. That said, I wonder how the numbers work out, and I suspect it's a tight margin to make any profit selling these apps at the affordable price that they do. Would it be ridiculous to implement a Tip function (preferably on the site and not directly in the apps, to be tasteful) that allowed Affinity users to send some money to the development team when feeling generous? I'd tip now and then -- I'd consider it a sort of volunteer subscription, rather than the top-down authoritarian malarkey of Adobe. Just an idea.
  10. Anyone use Rhino a lot and want to replace Illustrator with Designer? If Affinity Designer could simply import 2D exported geometry from Rhino (outputted as either *.ai or DFX or DWG) then I would seriously never need Illustrator again, and that would be a glorious day. Thanks Affinity!
  11. Forgive me for just pointing to Photoshop as the precedent that we all want to (or at least speaking personally, I want to) get unyoked from, but what I'm referring to is how you can just hit 'R' in Photoshop and rotate the canvas any arbitrary amount. Essentially R + LClick does the live rotate, and I hope AP can add this feature as it is essential for painterly illustration work.
  12. At risk of touching upon a topic already resolved, I can't stress enough how important Live Rotate is to satisfy the workflows of professional illustrators who might be reluctant to fully leave Photoshop. Is a Live Rotate tool being considered for Affinity Photo? If so, then fantastic! Gotta have Live Rotate. I want to hit that 'R' key and start spinning the canvas; it's the only way to get in the workflow pocket so to speak.
  13. Unless I'm blind, I don't see any PDF export option in Rhino. But I do see that a other users are requesting DFX and DWG import support in AD, so that's just as well!
