    new iPad 9,7" …

    @R C-R it was in May - how does it work? Do you by any chance also have latest Designer on it? I am very curious how both apps work on the iPad 2018 + Apple Pencil combo. It is not very likely I will be able to test it in apple store with affinity installed on them so I'd appreciate your review on it!
  2. It is something I do every time when I crop image... it seems such a waste of time to have to click it each time. It should either remember last setting or have option in setting to make it default. If there is such option please guide me to it as I wasn't able to find it. I suppose this should affect crop in general and in Develop persona as well Cheers!

    LUT not working

    This makes me sad as I thought it will be brilliantly easy way to match images in terms of tones Now that it works only on tonal adjustments I actually don't see how it is different from just selecting layers and pasting them into another document. But I thank you for fast reply!

    LUT not working

    I just took a photo with one pixel layer and exported LUT and then wanted to import LUT to another file... when I read your reply I start to think that I can't export LUT from just pixel layer but need the adjustments layers? I don't have them now as I flatened the file and just wanted one jpg to have same tones/balance as another one...

    LUT not working

    Hi I watched https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnJzswOe1xk (LUTs for Tonal Adjustments (Affinity Photo)) and in my version of Affinity Photo it is now not a 3D LUT but just LUT and when I tried repeating steps I load LUT file in adj layer and nothing happens... Did you disable the functionality somehow? If so maybe it would be best to just remove the video? Untitled.cube

    PDF Export overlay effect serious error

    @MEB I just had a brochure printed and it is badly printed because of a seemingly similar issue. File has a jpg blurred in background. Export to tiff works, but exporting to pdf lost the background image which I did not notice... this has to be looked at as I lost money on this order... ulotka a4 Sużyw-test.tiff ulotka a4 Sużyw-test.pdf ulotka_a4_Sużyw-test.afdesign

    Export persona clipping imprecision

    @MEB I will keep an eye on this but if the behaviour is unified so it works like in export dialog it will just work and looking forward to this in the end result having any shifts < 1px if there is bleed are much less problematic than the white borders. Or rounding down as you said would also fix it I think and maybe it would be simpler to apply.
  8. @dominik and @Alfred I am sorry but what I meant is whether is there a way to scale artboard by providing dimensions but so it scales text frames proportionally as if dragged with the external artboard handle?

    Export persona clipping imprecision

    You are correct Though I am 100% positive I did click that artboard and the numbers were even - not sure what happened. Still it is not correct that it is clipped fine when using export dialog and wrong when using export persona... it is still a bug in my opinion and it should work well
  10. This is an issue I was struggling for long now (good few months or even a year) but finally have enough experience to report it properly. This issue is in export persona and not the export dialog with artboard selected. The issue usually applies to artboards other than first. Despite artboards having a lot of bleed inside to cover border pixels for sure they clip exported JPG/PNG imprecisely adding white (semi)transparent pixel on edges. Artboard doesn't have colour set. On exported PNGs the pixels are transparent. I suspected that arboard has x and y coordinates set at .3 .or 7px for example instead of full numbers but moving artboard to round numbers did not correct it. Also the dimensions of the artboard are round pixels. Attached is the file where #3 and #2 are exported this way. test.afdesign
  11. Brilliant! Thank you! Is there a trick to scale artboard from A4 to A5 for example by providing size? Is there an option for that in transform toolbox or somewhere else?
  12. Especially when artboard is scaled but other than that as well - maybe Alt+scale or a trigger similar to Lock children? This is very needed feature as we're struggling with this since beginning and for some reason it still is not solved. Please, please, please!
  13. Hi, When exporting to PDF in both offset or web settings the document has entirely wrong look - background image instead of adding burn looks very dark. Designer 1.6.1 on Mac (Windows version does the same) source.afdesign export-offset.pdf source-web-default-export.pdf

    Can't open .ai file

    Sending the file - it opens, opens, opens and never actually opens. mac shows file preview but Affinity (both Designer and Photo on mac and Designer on Windows as well, either from NAS or local files) mobil 485 x245cm.ai
  15. This request is from 2 users - we daily struggle with export dialog window not remembering that we had selection with, selection without or else selected and when I need to export few elements from one document I have to repeat this every time...
