  1. Hi. When I import or paste a text in spanish and the 2 characters that are contiguous are fi, the 2 letters dissapeared. For example, the words afinado, afiliación or afirmativo are transformed in anado, aliación and armativo. All values and preferences by default. Mac OS 10.11.6 El Capitan. The SO is in Spanish.
  2. Israel: En cada SO se paga por separado, entre otras cosas porque cada tienda tiene políticas, protocolos y sistemas diferentes. Por lo que ofrece me parece hasta barato. De hecho, imagina cualquiera de las aplicaciones por 50 € y que sirviera para Mac OS, Windows, Linux, iPad y iPhone ¿No te parece que el esfuerzo y dinero en recursos sería demasiado? A mí, sí. ¡Suerte y a disfrutar de las fantásticas aplicaciones de Affinity!
  3. Hello! I think metadata nowadays is very important. So, for me it could be useful have a panel for metadadata to include keywords in a file. This way you can have photos, images, logos, illustrations, layouts and so on with its metadata included. It looks that only Affinity Photo has this tool. I hope that in the 1.11 versions of Designer, Photo and Publisher would be able to have some kind of standard panel to include metadata in the documents that this applications create and you can include the metadata in the other exported formats too. Thanks for reading. 🙂
  4. Oh! It could be fantastic that Affinity Designer works in Silhouette applications. I hope the 2 teams reach good agreements!!! :-)
  5. Hi! First things, first: Your applications are wonderful and awesome. They are a must for me and lots of people. Getting better and better every day, so keep the good way, team! 🙂 I would like you to create a new tool that will be able to make a shape or figure that requires a little time to get done by hand (manually). I do not know what to be its name. Maybe umbrella. I make and use it every now and then to use it as a sunset or sunrise or whatever. Maybe the tool will have some parameters (you know: the interactive little red points to change them): Number of sectors or parts, some of them larger than the others alternativelly, the external part of the sector if it is concave, hollow or convex and so on... I think that with the image attached is good to understand the meaning of the new “umbrella tool”. I know that Designer has similar tools, but the key of the “umbrella tool” is that have “divided sectors”. Thank you - - - - - - - - - - - In Spanish: Petición o sugerencia de una nueva herramienta llamada paguas o sombrilla que sirve para muchos propósitos como simular un amanacer, atardecer, sombrilla, paraguas u objetos parecidos. Lo interesante aquí es que no sería como otras herramientas parecidas ya que habría sectores (partes del objeto total) separados. Además se podría hacer que hubiese manejadores interactivas como en este tipo de herramientas que permitiesen que el perímetro exterior del objeto pudiera tener segmentos, cócavos, convexos o desiguales, etc. Gracias por vuestro tiempo y dedicación.
  6. Hi! In Affinity Designer to apply effects to text and objets is made via Layer - Layer effects. In Affinity Photo there is no the same way. Layer effects des not exist. Go to Studio - Effects. I know that it seems something obvious, but for people that use a lot Affinity Designer could get lost finding a way to do the same effects to a text or/and a object in both applications. I do not know how this effects are applied in Affinity Publisher but I hope that I buy soon the third application of the suite
  7. OK. Wonderful. A real pleasure check again and again that everytime we, the users, have a question is breathtaking how you answer so kind and fast. In plain spanish: Es increíble el feedback en Serif. Te responden en cuestión de horas. En pocos sitios sucede.
  8. Hi, team! I try to make a PNG dithered with transparency background. Is not available to see in a window 2 or more previsualization of an image with different export options in real time? Thanks for your amazing apps
  9. ¡Ánimo Rafael! Enhorabuena por tus tutoriales. Son muy claros y didácticos. Sigue así. Merece la pena Congrats for your tutorials, Rafael! Very clear and so good to learn. Keep on the good work!!!
  10. I hope that the people at affinity will act as always: No copy XPress or InDesign. They will share with us in this forum the best an practical way to do the day by day routines in a publishing application. No doubts about that!!! I do not like some ways to do the publishing stuff in InDesigner.
  11. Several times this topic has been posted, but we have no answer yet. Is a basic thing. Now is confusing for lack of information in the dialog window.
  12. Hello I have several text boxes one behind another in a document. In FreeHand I can select a text box that is behind of another and at that moment the element is active so I can edit the text and make changes. It is not possible in Affinity Designer? I can do Option + Clic and select the element behind, but I can not edit the text. When I tried, the box text goes is deselected and the most front box goes active. Selecting the text box via Layers panel comes to similar results. Thanks.
  13. I totally agree. There are not enough info en the resize dialog window. Please, aadd more info to see the old and the new resolution and size of the document.
  14. Wonderful book. Purchased, but... Habrá una versión en español?
  15. Hi! Just a basic question. Could I use the Pen tool to make a silhouette for clipping an image, and export the image with the cutout of the silhouette to EPS or native format to place in on another application to be able to change the background every time I want? An example could be a frog with the moon as a background.
  16. The magic word (and this is similar like the old feature in FreeHand) is PASTE INSIDE. Select everything you want, Command + cut, select a polygon and Paste Inside. Voilà! Designer will create a layer with each pasted inside polygon. You can see each element of the layer, select it, delete, it, edit it and so on. I have done so many vector logos and designs that for me is something natural. Affinity designer has for me the most clean interface, power and flexibility of all the popular design and vector applications. I was fed up for the treatment Adobe had with all the users of FreeHand. Now Adobe says Illustrator will be re-optimized and so on... Well, Illustrator WILL NOT change all the old and strange routines and ways it works because a lot of users will be kicked out. Search on the web about FreeFreeHand. Legions of FreeHand users had purchase Affinity Designer. What can I say? Hey, the reason is that Affinity Designer rocks! Personally if I must pay every new big version for me will be a real pleasure.
  17. Thank, R C-R. I have Affinity Designer from the first Betas. But I mean that the trick is about have a portion of the image, not manipulate a layer. It is generally a convention from a long time ago in graphic application on Macintosh. If you have something selected, dragging that element or a portion of that element using Option duplicates that selection and is ”floating” ready to use. The original element remains in its place intact.
  18. If you do not need to manage a lot of pages, like FreeHand, Affinity Designer is the perfect Application to do this kind of work.
  19. Hi! Just a simple question about an very very very old trick. If I have a selection and I move it with Option (Alt for Windows) the action is not duplicate this selection? Sorry. Maybe will be a simple solution, but I downloaded the Beta of Affinity Photo and I am new with this fabulous app. I am an old fashioned user of Amazing Paint, Adobe Photoshop, Graphic Coverter, Acorn and Pixelmator and I want to hold on all the time with Affinity Photo when I will purchase in no time ;)
  20. Hi! Maybe I have crazy ideas about the creations of colours but: Will have sense that when I create a color, the name could be something like C30 M56 Y0 K100 if I use CMYK sliders? And talking about images, I would like to have a Window for them to be able to replace a lot of images by a new one and have more information about images in this pane. I do not mean the pane will be so powerful like the future Affinity Publisher app, but a basic pane when I can see a list of all images placed in a document and I could be able to re-link them will be fantastic! But the basic question about images update is: Right now when a place an image and close the Affinity Designer document were the image is placed, if I change that image (edit colors, curves and so on in other Photo retouching app) when I open the Affinity Designer document again, the image does to update ti the last version. Thanks for your great app!!!
  21. Well. It is a basic function. Maybe in the 1.5 version? I hope so! And best tabulations: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/22313-tabulated-text-in-affinity-designer/?hl=tabulated
  22. Good point. I think that is a very practical trick. Thanks a lot!! As always you are listening all time. So I am always doing evangelism about your wonderful apps. Keep on spreading the word!!! :D
  23. Wow! Thanks as always. You have the answer published here just before I ask, indeed! This forum is so good! Mac Affinity Rooooooks!!!!
