  1. As far as I recall, files created or modified or exported by Affinity software do not appear in the list of recent files in Mac OS Finder. Please see screenshot. After multiple OS and Serif upgrades and different computers, the problem persists, so I assume it is a Bug / Feature Request. Please fix or tell me why it's not working on my computers.
  2. Any update on the progress of Right-to-Left support? In the wake of Brexit I'm getting more clients who require multi-lingual designs including R-to-L
  3. Just to finish off on a positive note with a solution for Newbies: If you're having trouble trying to join nodes or close curves: 1. modify your shape so that the bits you want to close are overlapping, 2. use the "add" button.
  4. Thanks. I did a search before joining this thread but wasn't sure how to filter for specific feature requests. How can I find this "join a pair of selected nodes" feature request thread and what is the best way of voting for this feature? Presumably writing "+1" or clicking the heart-like button.
  5. Ok, thank you for confirming that it is not possible. I'll post something in the feature requests and feedback section.... I can't be the only who expects that a "join curves" button to be able to join curves.
  6. Why can't I select specific nodes that I want to join and use a tool to join them?
  7. Yes, both are selected. I have attached a screenshot as proof. I've tried hundreds of different things and can only conclude that AD cannot cope with breaking a curve and joining the ends to different ends. I cannot join them using the pen tool either.
  8. I guess my question is, if two ends were once joined, can they ever be joined to any other end? In my experience the answer seems to be "no".
  9. Yes I tried that but it does not respond as expected. Background info: I first used "Break curves" to re-arrange the shape and then was hoping to join them together in a different way. I guess Affinity can't cope with that.
  10. I appreciate this is a very old thread, but I have a recurring problem. I cannot close curves and I cannot work out why. Previously I used Macromedia Freehand and Illustrator, so I expect to be able to select two open ends and then click "Join curves" to connect the selected ends. I have read various Affinity help files, forum threads and user-generated "tutorial" videos, but I cannot understand the Affinity logic... or keep forgetting the Affinity way of doing it because it doesn't make any sense to me. I have replicated everything in the above video and much more besides but I cannot get my lines to connect. What am I doing wrong please. Four screen grabs attached.
  11. I want to make it easy for Affinity developers to identify and prioritise the most popular feature requests. After looking around this website for a while, I cannot see an obvious way of doing this. I suggest adding three big buttons at the top, namely: "1. see feature roadmap" "2. search feature requests" "3. add new feature request" Also, within a specific feature request post, the developers of this forum should make it clear how to vote for a feature. Is this currently done through clicking the heart button? Here's an example: I want to find out how to "select and copy just a segment of a path" I do a general search If I can't find how to do it or if it's not possible - I search "feature roadmap" If it's not there, I search "requests" If it's not already listed, I add the request If many vote for it, and it is feasible, it gets added to the roadmap If there is already a system for this, please let me know the correct way of doing it.
  12. I agree - png files exported from AE are too big for web use
