    jgrayillustrate got a reaction from MattieLam in [AD] Vector persona eraser tool   
    Just thought it'd be nice to have an eraser tool in the vector/curves persona. Being able to erase part of a vector shape is really nice feature when you don't want to be doing everything manually by using the pen tool.

    Thanks!

    jgrayillustrate got a reaction from estevancarlos in Will Affinity Designer allow for plugins?   
    I really think this is a great idea.
     
    Being able to program plugins could take a serious load off of the Affinity Team to implement larger feature requests and allow third-party developers to make plugins for the smaller feature requests.
     
    Also, with Yosemite allowing for Javascript programming, I for one would be willing to whip up some simple potrace/vectorizer plugin.

    Thanks for the info! Is an eraser tool in the Draw/vector/curves persona going to be added to the roadmap for a future release?

    jgrayillustrate got a reaction from netsurfer912 in Linux. Seriously now.   
    Just to chime in briefly, as an illustrator/designer/developer, I would personally love to have a great vector program for Linux because:
     
    - You don't seem to have many of the limitations and controlled experience as you do with Macs.
    - I like using the command line for things like web development task running/workflow.

    However, I imagine supporting a Linux version would slow down feature enhancements/updates and it would be less robust.

    jgrayillustrate got a reaction from scamper in Tool options menus   
    I think in Illustrator, when you select a shape tool - you can perform a key command (I think option+click) to pull up a menu for that shape tool in order to pre-define the shape you want to create.

    So, let's say you wanted a rounded rectangle at 100px x 100px with a 20px corner-radius, you would be able to set those properties in the options menu and then click a submit type button and it would create the shape on the artboard for you.

    Currently, (as far as I know) you can only create the shape by clicking and dragging the shape to whatever size on the artboard.

    I'm assuming there may be an options menu for at least some tools, or a feature request out there for this feature already - but just in case there isn't yet, here you are.
     
    Thanks!

    jgrayillustrate reacted to Andreas Larsen in Affinity Designer Bright'n'Monochrome UI   
    Thanks, use it as you like.
    I Used this as a way to learn to use the program
    It would be great if you could something similar as an option (theme chooser?)
     
    A couple of thoughts on the current design:
     
    Rectangles
    A bit inconsistent with regular rectangles and rounded rectangles - in Yosemite: a rounded rectangle is a button a rectangle with sharp corners is an input field In affinity designer a rounded rectangle can be both but you also use rectangles with sharp corners Input fields
    Should behave the same way - can't currently use keyboard arrows (+ shift) in all input fields - e.g. the opacity input field in the color pane. I know it's a dropdown too but so is e.g. the rotation adjustment in the transform pane where keyboard up/down works just fine. Add the ability to jump between and edit them with keyboard only - so when you press tab on the keyboard it jumps to the next input field and edits when you type. Currently in e.g. the transform pane I have to select every input field with the mouse in order to edit them. Icons
    Some icons, e.g. Transparency Tool have too dark edges => looks blurry on a dark background. Tabs
    Tabs are inverted (when having multiple documents open) Inconsistency in dropdown design
    I think there are 3 different behaviours and designs when pressing opacity dropdowns? Layers pane
    Why do you have some options on top and some at the bottom of the list? I know photoshop does it too but having all the options together makes it more intuitive and similar to the rest of the panes. Swatches
    Add an option to select number of rows (GIMP has this, works great with swatches with a certain repeat interval) The default (white, black, transparent) are more logically placed next to recent colours and not the swatch selector  The add to swatches icon isn't that obvious, not sure if a plus sign is better but something should be done :) Second toolbar (the one below the first - don't know what you call it)
    Add an icons-only option like the first toolbar When you select e.g. pen it says "Pen" in the beginning - I don't know if that's needed to compensate for the fact that the contrast in the left toolbar is too low so it isn't obvious what you've selected but should not be necessary On my mockup:
    Tried to keep it as close to default Yosemite as possible - I know it doesn't looks as flashy as the current design but I think it will be more intuitive to most due to the familiarity with stock Apple apps. I've condensed the layouts a bit (maybe a bit too much) but wanted the chrome to take up as little space as possible. With the added tab to hide UI option in next beta a design with more whitespace and bigger icons could make more sense. I'm using source sans pro but that's because helvetica neue is horrible on non retina displays.

    Here's what I've been using as a replacement icon, as there weren't enough blue circles in my dock ;-)
     

     
    Not suggesting it should be a replacement icon for AD by any means in fact it almost certainly shouldn't... But I did make it in AD :-)

    It will always be a matter of personal opinion.
     
    I like the current icons.
    And if Affinity are thinking of changing them, then please have the current ones available also.
    So, the user can choose which they would like to display.
     
    That way, everyone (well, almost everyone) can be happy.
