  1. I preferred the tight bounding boxes since they made it easier to align separate text boxes upon import.
  2. When moving an object in its entirety off an artboard oftentimes that object disappears from sight and cannot be re-selected after deselecting it. A workaround to this is to drag the object to different places outside the dartboard, after 2-3 times it becomes and stays visible. Please see the screen recording. ps. I'm using OS 10.14.2 on an MBP 13" mid 2018
  3. This is just to confirm that the problem persists with Thanks!
  4. This seems to happen with every file I have tried. For instance, please look at the bounding box of the text item upon importing the attached pdf into 1.6 versus any 1.7 version. Thanks! Text example
  5. Thanks everyone; it makes sense that probably Word is to blame, but it is somewhat strange that this issue did not occur with AD 1.6. Thanks again!
  6. When importing PDF files into AD 1.7.07 the bounding boxes of text objects are not as neatly adjusted to the text field as they used to be in AD 1.6. Would be great if this could be addressed in a future update, thanks!
  7. The pinch zoom on my trackpad (MacBook Pro mid 2018, 13", Mojave 10.14.2) seems to stop working frequently when using Affinity Designer. Sometimes I can re-enable it by de-activating/activating it in systems preferences, but often I need to put the laptop to sleep for it to work again. Is anyone else experiencing this issue, too?
  8. Thanks for looking into it, Sean. Please see the attached Designer file; when exporting the artboard as a pdf ('for export') the resulting image seems to be vectors only, but Microsoft Office rasterizes it upon placing into a Word document. This does not happen when removing the embedded file. Rasterization_file
  9. Sorry for hijacking this thread, but to me not all PDF rasterization problems have been resolved in 1.7.07; while the pdf export now does put out vector graphics these get rasterized in Word, which did not happen before (exact same artboard, was not rasterized by Word after exporting as pdf with 1.7.04). Is this a known issue? Thanks! Edit: narrowed it down: this seems to be occur when there is an embedded document as part of the export

    That's great to hear, thanks Matt! Could these possibly also fix the rasterization issue?
  11. Dear all, I'm afraid some old issues resurfaced for me with the latest beta; vector objects don't adhere to their physical dimensions (e.g., 2x3cm) anymore but get altered by dpi settings (to recapitulate copy a vector object from a 72dpi document into a 96dpi document), exporting pdfs that were exported as vectors in results in rasterized images now etc. Since 1.7 in general pdf import also behaves worse for me, e.b. bounding boxes for texts are not as well adjusted and require manual trimming to the text. I will upload representative examples as soon as possible. Thanks, hubob
  12. Hi everyone, is there a way to restrict the selection of snapping candidates to the current artboard? Thanks!
  13. I would also love for this feature to be implemented as soon as feasible. Along with arrowheads (...), an option to resize canvas to selection, and being able to link and not only embed objects - after these I'm all set:)
  14. Thanks so much for trying this out, JimmyJack, it certainly seems like Prism is to blame with regards to the first point (yes, it was 1/2pt and I exported the pdf); I'll get in touch with the developers there. As far as the second point is concerned: you're absolutely right, this way works to adjust the sizes and it's what I use to do. Since I import a lot of individual pdf's all the time (creating figures with multiple pdf-subpanels) it would be very useful, if AD recognized upon import that the placed file is a pure vector file and thus just recognizes the dimensions, regardless of whether pasting it into a 72dpi or a 300dpi document. With the current way I need to create an intermediary document in which I assign the required dpi value to the pdf before placing it into final document. I wonder which way it works in Illustrator? Thanks again for your great help!
