    The way you often express yourself (and continue to beat a dead horse) it doesn’t sound as altruistic as you try to make it with this statement.
  2. Just to add to my own incomplete response: what I mean by that is that you could also watch Illustrator or even Photoshop tutorials on how to achieve such text effects and would probably be able to reproduce that in AD (or AP).
  3. This has nothing to do with a “text library” (whatever that is). You just choose an appropriate font, type some text, and apply background and/or border colors and some shadow effects to it. You can also save these effects as styles for later re-use. AD styles panel tutorial And this is also not specific to Affinity software, the principle is the same in any other graphic program (Inkscape, Adobe Illustrator, etc.).

    Fireworks usually asks whether the copied item (doesn’t necessarily have to be text) should be resampled or not.
  5. No, because activating all controls isn’t always desirable. I know that there’s a keyboard shortcut for that, too (Ctrl-F7) but activating this setting to be able to hit a button in a dialog is even more disruptive than using the mouse.
  6. Thanks but that’s not an ideal workaround for me. I’m surprised how silent Serif suddenly is regarding this issue.
  7. If it’s still on the roadmap it hasn’t been implemented yet; everything that has been implemented is taken off the list in the first post. But to answer your question: yes, ther eis no mesh warp/distortion tool yet.

    I was just kidding with the vacation thing, by the way, just in case sarcasm doesn’t come across here. It’s a common misconception by Americans that there is a common European culture (and that’s partly what my comment aimed at). Despite the existence of the European Union, each country within (and outside, because the EU is not equal to Europe) still has mostly their specific culture and laws, including regulations regarding vacation. However, I suppose it’s common across the entire temperate climate zone on the northern hemisphere that during summer people go on a vacation for some amount of time and business (except the tourism industry) is less busy than on other times.

    Yeah, the whole of Europe (the continent) has three months of paid vacation per year of which one is taken by all people at the same time. So, basically time stands still during that time.

    Serif should specify a Unix timestamp. Although that would lock them to a specific time while the current statement is vague enough to keep us peasants busy speculating while they go on vacation, laughing about our mediocrity.

    But it will likely still be more than 250MB, so it would be more than it needs to be if all I’m using is one specific application. That’s like going to McDonald’s to get a Big Mac and saying that it’ll be cheaper in a super size menu – of course, every component in itself would be cheaper than buying them separately but absolutely you are paying more and are getting stuff you didn’t want in the first place.

    How will a software combined from three separate programs be smaller and faster? I, personally, don’t need advanced image development and manipulation tools, and neither do I need print publishing tools, so what good would a bloated Swiss army knife software be for someone like me?

    I see what you did there.

    If they say “summer” I would expect late August earliest. So don’t hold your breath just yet.

    And that’s the dialog where I can’t even use Cmd-D (or any keyboard shortcut) on my German Mac.
