  1. More info: This might be an edge case, it happens when I unplug my external monitor and plug in again.
  2. This is a bit of a difficult issue to describe, so I'll try with a picture: When I open up a file, it looks more or less as it should (labels for artboards are off). When I try to select objects, though, I find the the actual object outlines seem to be elsewhere. I cannot edit the objects where they appear. This happens randomly, not always, and I have a feeling that it's related to me using an external monitor. Closing and reopening the file usually solves it I'm working on macOS high sierra 10.13.4, Edit: Zooming in and out of the file using keyboard shortcuts seems to be causing the problem. It's as though the preview zooms but not the outlines
  3. Just released a second color palette with support for Affinity's .afpalette format. It's a set of bright, happy colors to lighten up any illustration or design. Get it at creativemarket
  4. I wanted a base palette that I could use on my illustrations, with a range of shades, and highlights/shadows for each. So I made my own: It's a good starting point for illustrations, icons & UI work. There's more than 100 swatches, nicely organized. Comes in several formats, of course .afpalette included. Grab it over at CreativeMarket!
  5. I'm about to do just that. I saved my affinity images as pdf, opened in .ai (sucked to lose all the layer organization) and converted to eps/ai. I'll let you know how it goes!
  6. I was just coming in to say this: I want transparency in export without having to set the doc bg to transparent for two reasons (Least important) It is an extra step to change the document settings. (Most important) The chequered background is very distracting when working on a document, especially when you are working with a grid. I like having a clean white background to work in and not have the bg export by default. I think an easy solution (at least easy in terms of the UI, no clue in dev terms) would be to have a checkbox at export "Transparent background" That would enable transparency there.
  7. Gotcha, thanks. I guess this is a very specific technical term, but perhaps a friendlier label could be used ("set dimensions as percentages", "relative dimensions"?)
  8. Where is that option? I Only see a checkbox for "set view box", with no further options.
  9. Another vote! One of the few missing features that really slows down my workflow.
  10. Another "me too"! Pattern fills are a big part of my workflow and it's highly inconvenient to have to go raster rather than be able to use vector pattern fills. I use pattern fills for noise, texture, geometric patter fills, etc.
  11. I had to use Fireworks the other day and remembered how awesome its color picker is. Just hit "I" and automatically sample any color below the dropper, or when you choose a fill color, automatically be able to sample and the color is immediately applied to the selected object.
  12. Hokusai, you are right! But then another problem comes, which is that I can't seem to change keyboard shortcut for bold or italic, it just doesn't appear on the shorcuts menu. I have temporarily solved the problem by changing the send to back command to cmd+shift+B, but I would love to be able to change the bold shortcut.
  13. Yea, after I customized it it disappeared, though. Chris, so it is a bug? Just want to know if I did anything wrong. Thanks!
  14. I wanted to assign cmd+F to "Send to front" and cmd+B to "send to back". I did so in the preferences panel, but even though it seems to be there, the send to back shortcut doesn't work and doesn't appear in the layers menu either. You can see in the screenshot, the shortcut ias assigned, and doesn't show a conflict. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?
  15. Exactly. I find HSL the easiest (most intuitive) way to find the color I want, but I most often need to use it in rgb/hex
