  1. Oh snap! I looked at the help but I totally missed that section. Thanks for that quick reply.
  2. Let’s say I have several rectangles and I want to change the width of all of them individually at once. Is there a simple way to do this? Currently, if I select all of them, the transform panel shows the collective dimension of all of them and if I enter a new value the whole collection is resized to that value at once. I’d like the individual objects to stay in place and each individual size changed. I hope you get what I mean. Is this possible?
  3. Wow, so many replies! Thanks a lot for your interest and curiosity. And thank you, MEB, resetting the canvas rotation helped. That said, it’s very unobvious that the canvas is rotated. Perhaps the UI could be improved a bit in that regard? And just for the records: the original SVG was a simple export from Sketch (but I seem to remember that I had this with other files previously). Is there anything in an SVG that could trigger canvas rotation in AD?
  4. I have this SVG: <svg width="46px" height="18px" viewBox="0 0 46 18" version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"> <g id="Symbols" stroke="none" stroke-width="1" fill="none" fill-rule="evenodd"> <g id="arrow-right-white" stroke="#979797"> <g id="arrows_slim_right"> <path d="M0,9 L45,9" id="Path" fill="#D8D8D8"></path> <polyline id="Path" points="36 18 45 9 36 0"></polyline> </g> </g> </g> </svg> Visually, it’s a right pointing arrow. When I’m opening this in AD somehow the whole thing is mirrored; the arrow is pointing left, the rotation handle is at the bottom and if I’m using the arrow keys to move the selection, it moves it in the opposite directions (i. e. using the up arrow key moves the objects down etc.). Is this a bug or am I missing something? Can anyone reproduce this?
  5. Oooooohhh, I see. I didn’t realize that was the command name in the tooltip. That could be improved a little, I guess.
  6. Since the upgrade to version 1.7.1 one of my keyboard shortcuts isn’t working anymore; it shows a yellow triangle (that indicates to me that there is a conflict with another option) and the tooltip “move inside” when hovering over the field with the pointer. I have several problems now: It doesn’t tell/show me with which option it is conflicting, and there is no way to search for the option(s) where keyboard shortcuts are used. What does that cryptic message “move inside” mean? Nothing is happening when I click the field.
  7. I guess the main goal of Serif was/is to release the holy trinity of Affinity Designer, Photo, and Publisher in a state that works for most people first, and then they can continue to implement the additional features with the advantage that they can implement them for all three programs at once. These are strategic decisions, and they decided to do it in this order, not in the one you prefer. And I’m sure they have a better overview over the customer base and how many users they would gain or lose with a certain strategy. You’re free to buy AP and APub at any time in the future once the features you desire are implemented.
  8. I just had a thought (no idea if it has been done yet): how about a petition on change.org or some similar platform, to see how much actual potential demand there might be?
  9. Some people take every statement in the forum absolutely literal like it was the bible. And even if they literally meant they would consider it – perhaps they actually have considered it and then decided it wasn’t worth it. What then? At what point are you going to accept it and get on with your lives?

    New Logo Please!

    New icons are out once again! They got rid of the basic triangular shape and have more sublte gradients — I like them. :-)
  11. I did this, too, but I think it would have sufficed to hit Cmd-R to refresh the updates page, and it should show up in the list of updates.
  12. The first thing that was there was Affinity Designer, and is was for Mac only. Windows users had the Plus range (PhotoPlus, PagePlus etc.). If I remember correctly Serif decided to port AD to Windows before AP came out for both platforms right away. It’s all documented here in the forums somewhere but I can’t be bothered to search for it right now.
  13. If you’ve bought it through the App Store that’s where it is also updated. If it doesn’t show in the list of updates, refresh the window (Command-R).

    New AD version?

    You see the version number on the startup screen (and might notice the app icon and startup screen look different if you have 1.7). And if you’ve missed that, in the menu go to “Affinity Designer > About…” to bring it back up and see the version you have.
  15. It’s not actually a bug in the software but I noticed a typo in slides 1, 2 and 6 in the German version of the welcome screen, where the discounts are promoted: in the red eye-catcher it reads “Rabbat” when the proper spelling would be “Rabatt”. Also, in slide 5 where it reads “Sparen Sie 20% auf alles in unseren Store” it should read “unserem”.
