  1. Hi I have just noticed when I drag a PDF from the Finder and into an open document the PDF doesn't respect the actual size of the PDF it opens at a smaller size. If I use the Place option then the size is correct. Also if I open the PDF then select the PDF and Copy and then paste it into another open document the size is again smaller than the original size. This happens with the Mac App store version and the latest beta version. Any idea why this happens? and can a fix be found? EDIT.. Attached a video of what happens it also happens with .afdesign file too.
  2. Getting better all the time...
  3. Ok thank you for clearing that up for me.
  4. So anything outside the art board will not be included even if I check PDF compatible file. Is it a legal issue for you not reading the content outside the art board. Sorry but I don't really understand the complexities of what can and cannot be used in a file format.
  5. I was just wondering why when you open an AI or PDF file created with Illustrator why content outside the art board doesn't show up in Affinity Designer? we do a lot of setting files up for large format printing and need to place some elements outside the art board but we still need them to edit with later.
  6. Having played about with it a bit more I do see how it is more flexible. I was was just testing aligning 1 object in the centre of the other object in AD it took 7 clicks in AI it took 5. Is there a way you can add the align to options to the pop up menu when you right/CTRL click the objects to align?
  7. This is what I've been waiting for for a long time now, But I personally think it's not very well implemented! the way Illustrator does it is far more flexible than AD, In Ai you select your objects (wether you drag select or select individually) then select any one of the objects you want to align to then select your alignment option, now thats simple. I hope AD gets a simpler way to do it in the future. But at least I can do it now.
  8. Hi Would like to see preserving the name of a swatch colour when importing a document colour palette, For example if I get a file and it has a spot colour with the name BakeryK1234 then I would like the name preserved when I import the colour palette. Thanks
  9. I would like to see a checkbox for us to set the default measurement in a document. At the moment when I open a PDF the measurement is alway set to points, I would like to set the default measurement to millimetres for every document I open. Thanks
  10. Hi Lee D I should have mentioned the swatches are spot colours with custom names that I wanted to keep. I will put it up in the feature request. Thanks
  11. Is there a way to keep a swatch name when creating a palette from a document, All colours that are created have the document file name followed by a number, Not easy to identify when colours are similar to each other.
  12. Yes it would I find it a little irritating having to change it every time I open a PDF document.
  13. When I open an Illustrator PDF document that was created using the measurement in millimetres, AD always sets the measurement to points, does anyone else have this happen? I would like it to open in millimetres.
  14. What I meant was a plugin for Affinity Designer so we can design in AD and plot from AD.
  15. Oh right i didn't realise that. Anyway would it be difficult for them to make a plugin for Affinity Designer to use with there cutter?
