  1. For all your apps that offer document/canvas rotation, when nothing is selected, please add the rotation of the canvas to the "R" field in Transform so I can manipulate it by typing. You know it makes sense.
  2. Serif linked to your reply when I asked for inline cross-references - appears that this is now the "official" workaround. The lack of this feature is puzzling, to say the least. Anyway, thanks Walt. I might give it a try..
  3. Yes, cross-references that are kept up-to-date when content move around is essential for me. I feel it is as fundamental as a Table of Contents. I'm really hoping work is already being done to deliver this soon 🙂
  4. Been so long since I used PS and AI I don't remember, but is this for pixel or vector or both? Cause I'm here to post a feature request for copying the selection from a vector shape. Which I have not found a workaround for. So for vector, I could eg. select 3 of 6 vertices, and have only those three vertices (with only the connected edges) copied (CMD+C), allowing me to paste (CMD+V) to create a new layer. Your feature request sounds like the mouse-dragging variant of the same feature?
  5. Err, maybe I didn't make the problem clear: the export is the issue, not the screen. The screen however, can be used to verify that there is no halftone details in the white areas, yet the export gets a base gray. The seemingly unavoidable problem is that: The completely white regions of the picture are exported as halftone "gray". The only white in the exported area is the halo around a halftone area. This is clearly not how halftone should work. Even the zoom on screen shows that the white turns gray when zooming out. Again, white should stay white in halftone - no matter the zoom level. A border is added to the image along the outer edge of the exported image. Any idea how to fix it? To me this looks like a bug in their algorithm, as the filter is really to simple to mess up. But I would LOVE to learn about any available workaround that does not require a manually added mask. In short: I would like any and all suggestions that will allow me to export halftone versions of photos containing white, where white stays white - without the demonstrated pixel gray. Thanks again!
  6. Hey, I want to create a halftone version of an image. Seems only way to do this is by using Live Halftone filter? I am no expert, but I think it is safe to say that the halftone filter is not working as expected. Comments on the images themselves as well. This is a close-up of a detail in the picture, with no pixel view mode selected. Clearly, the white is entirely white - there are no real half toning going on here that is worth conserving in the exported image. Zooming a bit out, the halftone fill for the white remains the same size as in the first image; now a bit more visible. Enabling pixel view mode, the white is filled - as if it is gray. This is how the PNG export looks like. Which of course is completely useless. And white is there a completely white halo around the desired halftone pattern? Again with pixel view mode disabled, the white even is no clearly no longer white - despite the first image showing no such contrast. Same image with pixel view mode enabled, clearly making the issue even worse. I have no idea how to work around this, or how to "bake" the halftone at a certain zoom level - if that is possible? I need to fix this, as what I have tried so far results in rasterised exports (PNG, JPG, etc) that are completely useless to me. Am I doing this all wrong? Thanks, Johan
  7. So, from v.1.9 there will be no more of this incredibly annoying and time consuming issue? I mean, I have the artboard and shape precisely on the grid, yet the edges are not sharp. Is this fixed in 1.9?
  8. Been fighting the same issue myself. I found somewhat of a solution: I changed the document resolution to Points, originally in pixels. Adjusted the size and stroke of my icons: artboard 22 x 22, stroke 1pt. The viewport of the exported files were somewhat matching the artboard - their viewport was set to 23 x 23. No idea where that came from. I am on grid with all the artboards, both size and location, so not sure why the size increased (I presume it rounded up for some reason). First I tried following the tip from @v_kyr but it didn't make a difference for my artwork (AD 1.8.6).
  9. Please retain what I chose in the Alignment dialogue for “Align to:” Basically I only use “Last Selected” option. To have to always have to set this when aligning is needlessly time consuming.
  10. I love the icons for Photo, Design and now Publisher - but not the "splash mess" added behind them... They do the icon no favors. Would love to just see the icons - clean and simple. Actually, I thought the noise behind the icon on Designer beta was added to remind the beta testers that they should expect bugs. Was surprisingly disappointed when you kept it for release. Now I also saw the backdrop for the Publisher icon.. it is .. just too much! Please, why have that? * start crying myself to sleep
  11. Dammit. I think the PDFs had transparent backgrounds, just all my viewers decided to be kind and render a white background. Even Preview did this, toggling View > Show Document Background did nothing. The exported PDF worked in Xcode however, which is the only thing I need.
  12. This is driving me nuts. I am sure I managed to do this before, now I cannot figure out how to export a PDF with transparent background. - Document Setup has "Transparent background" enabled. - I am seeing the document with the classic checked background. - During export I set "Compatibility" to PDF 1.7 (supposedly only 1.4+ support transparent backgrounds). The files I export have a white background. What am I doing wrong? All help appreciated.
  13. When using "Join Curves" why aren't the selected nodes used for the join? Seems to be so much more logical. If there is no selection - then the default is the two closest nodes. Not having any way to influence how a join happens, and not letting a selection influence the result just feels wrong.
