  1. Thanks Chris!
  2. Hi Chris, Thank you for your reply! Your proposal articulates exactly what I had in mind. Speaking of the font dropdown, I also started an unanswered topic about that (see below). Thanks! Bauke
  3. It would be great to hear the opinion of the developers on this topic.
  4. Nice find! That would be a great improvement for the constraints feature.
  5. Hi Toltec, Do you mean the perspective tool? In that case yes, I could rasterize it and use the non-live perspective tool to get the final result. No it doesn't matter so much, but it would remove an extra step from the workflow and allow for live viewing the final result while designing the embedded document. As I'm always on the lookout to improve and speed up workflows, I'm just curious what prevents dual panes from the live-version of the same tool. In the meantime, I'll try to wrap the rasterizing and and appliance of the non-live perspective tool in a macro so that it would still be a single action to perform. Best, Bauke
  6. Hi Callum, Thanks for your quick response. Let's hope they can enable it! Should the developers decide to remove it, please let me know what prevents it from working in the live filter. It has great potential for live wrapping a book cover design (in Affinity Designer) around a 3d book mock-up (in Affinity Photo), which I now have to do in two steps (front and spine separately). Best, Bauke
  7. Hello, When I add a live perspective filter to an embedded document in Affinity Photo, I can't select dual plane. Am I doing something wrong or is there a good reason for this? Thanks in advance! Bauke
  8. I second this from the perspective of having document wide nudge settings instead of application wide nudge settings. I usually set the nudge settings to the same unit as my grid, and changing them every time I switch projects is a bit of a nuisance.
  9. Hi Dave, Thanks for the answer! I see now that RGB images are being kept RGB while vectors are converted indeed. It seems my tests were poorly made; I only used vectors. Is the converting of vector colours a technical limitation of your pdf implementation or a deliberate choice? Best, Bauke
  10. Hi Pruus, I agree about X-1a, but I beg to differ about the others. As I understand it, not only do PDF/X-3 and 4 fully support RGB [1], it's actually contemporary best practice to keep pixel images in RGB until the last step in the process (which would be the RIP of the printer) [2].

  11. Hello, I'm very glad that we now have a glyphs browser, but I personally feel that its looks can be improved. Virtually all typefaces are made primarily for use on a light background, and to correctly evaluate a glyph I think the glyph browser should reflect this by having a white background with black glyphs. Right now the dark UI theme shows light glyphs on a dark background and the light UI theme shows grey type on a light background (which is better but lacks contrast). The font dropdown however does have black type on a white background in both themes, which I think is a good choice. Looking forward to your thoughts! Best, Bauke
  12. Hello, A functionality like InDesign's quick apply or Slack's channel switcher would be a great addition. Some things I imagine it could incorporate: swap between persona's access menu-items insert named assets and symbols apply object-, text- and paragraph-styles apply macro's apply layer effects select layers by typing its name jump to an artboard by typing its name apply a swatch by typing its name I'm looking forward to your feedback! Best regards, Bauke
  13. Hello, When I create a RGB document in Designer and export it using one of the following presets, it always gets converted to CMYK, even when explicitly setting its colour space to RGB. PDF/X-1a PDF/X-3 PDF/X-4 The PDF settings that kept the RGB profile (regardless of explicitly setting the colour space to RGB) were: PDF (for export) PDF (for web) PDF (for print) PDF (flatten) Is this a known bug? I could recreate in both AD and AP in 1.5 and 1.6 beta 1. Thanks in advance! Bauke
  14. The samples in the font dropdown look aliased on my non-retina screen. See the attachment for a screenshot. I'm using Designer 1.6.0 beta 1.
  15. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll do that! I hope the developers consider giving a useful feature such as this one a well-deserved place in the context toolbar.
