    dkaiser reacted to redline.wolfgang in DXF or DWG file import in Affinity Designer   
    First, Affinity Designer is beautiful and extremely efficient tool. I like it!
     
     
    I am doing design and artwork for front panels / operating panels of electric devices and machines. The drawings are available in DXF and / or DWG from Autocad (trademark). What would really speed up my workflow is the option to *import* DXF or DWG files. 
     
    Considering that these files can carry very complex information it would be sufficient to be able import only a single layer file or a single layer of such a file. This contains all mechanical data so I can be sure that the artwork will match the target device.
     
     
    Adobe Illustrator has this feature.
     
    Export of DXF / DWG files is actually not required for this kind of work.

    Thank you for the Beta. I's good to now, you go forward.

    Please ad the follow:
    - Bleed (please ad an optical view like lines, also in Affiny Designer, i asked you early)

     
    - Overflow Text (like a red dot in the lower right, or by export, in a big error message: Hey you see not the hole Text...)



    -  Missing Pictures or Document links? We have no information over it. Like open a older document. Ad a warning?



    - Spearation for CMYK (switching in optical view and have a % about the CMYK-Number's, also in Affinity Designer). This is important. We want controll over it before we export for PDF/X-3. We want also if the placed or linked picture a greyscale, this will be exportet as this... not as a CMYK or RGB. A black Picture, is black in the channel (k) for print and not a mix of all 4 colors.
    - Monitorproof... i dont now, how i can do this in Publisher. We as a company work with Printingservices around the world. It's important we have a point tats say us, we with the colors right.

    Thank You

    Well, there is no information about Publisher, no development video or screenshot. The only thing you know that was promised at the end of this year the beta and just this entry at about us. The entry is adjusted once or twice a year for years. Well, everyone is waiting for it and finally hope that there is good news. A short info video or developer screenshots would be helpful. Helpful, however, would be if Affinity lives up to the promises.
     
    At this time, my correction is valid

    Hello forum member Hello developer team   We start today with a promo video which includes screen recording of a little parts of the creation. Actually, we did not want to post this here, however, we are exited by Affinity and his designer software. We find that the developers have invested a lot of effort and time in the software and we want to show them that the software is also used by professionals.   Much thanks for your enormous effort and we hope that the development never stops.  
    Here the short movie:

    dkaiser got a reaction from anon1 in Bleed (in v1.5)   
    Oh no, again no visual bleed in 1.5. We print designers, we do not have it easy. I hope this simple programming function comes soon. It is just a line around the document.
     
    As a reference ... Pictures. It is important to have 5mm, 3mm or 1mm tolerance depending on the printing service. Visually, for example in flyers, it is important to see what can be pictured.
     
    We ... so many users, waiting for us to position perfectly pictures and graphics at the edge.
     
    It's simple, very simple. Only one line around the document size. The function, only for export, is already integrated into Designer. But you do not see them visually. Please do it now ... it is important for many people.
     
    Thanks, and I look forward

    Hi dkaiser,
    Check this thread. There some news coming in version 1.5:
     
    New Marquee Modes (Polygonal, Magnetic) [NOT AVAILABLE YET]
    We are committed to adding these modes in 1.5. There are already icons / modes for them in the context toolbar of the Freehand Marquee tool. At the moment, it won’t let you enter these modes - but it will in a subsequent beta build  :)
