macalienx got a reaction from DonaldDymn in Problems with exporting
I bought you´re app AD a few days ago and i´m am very happy with it.
But i have a little trouble here i hope you could help.
I´m working with and old macbook from late 2008 with the 10.9.5 osx installed.
I have a problem with exporting my work. I texported in .Jpg and .Png and i´m not able to select the option to export the area i want... so i can only export the all document...
Thanks in advanced

There's not automatic feature at the moment within the app - I'm sure it will come in the future.
You could export your design to PDF with bleeds and crop marks enabled and then use Apple's Preview to print multiple copies of the PDF on A3. Alternatively, you could create an A3 document in Designer and then use File > Place to add your PDF the page. You can the duplicate the placed PDF as many times as you need and position :)

Guides/Grids: there 's some improvements coming that will address some of those issues.
Nudges: you can already set the nudge distances and units in the latest Beta;
Text: No to both questions;
Vectors: this is something that may come later (long term)
Printing: there will be some printing improvements (mostly for professional printing) that may help here. Check Affinity Designer's roadmap for more info;
PDF exporting issue: Can you attach the file here (or a dropbox link) so we can take a look?

I think that Andy Tang might have a little surprise for you for the next beta ;)
All of the technology was already there because you can already hide everything separately - it just needed Tab to do all of the actions at once, which he has now wired up for the next beta :)

First post here. Been visiting a lot as I try to get my workflow sorted out using AD instead AI.
OP - I wanted to do exactly the same, I miss being able to hide everything quickly and then bring it back. I know it doesn't completely solve your problem but with AD in OS X fullscreen and by choosing View > Studio > Hide Studio (Shortcut ⇧+⌘+H) you can hide most of what gets in the way . You can combine this with View > Show Toolbar (shortcut ⌥+⌘+T) and View > Show Tools (no shortcut by default).
You can obviously change these shortcuts to whatever you want via Keyboard in System Preferences - maybe change to something that uses the same modifiers i.e. ⌥+⌘+T, ⌥+⌘+H and ⌥+⌘+Y (I chose 'Y' as an example because it's near 'T' and 'H')
Hope that helps a bit until Tab clears the clutter :)

macalienx reacted to azguy in CDR Import
Please add the ability to import CDR files.
Lately, clients have started mentioning that they would like to move away from CorelDraw. You might be surprised how many Mac users are using CorelDraw via Bootcamp or Parallels. Now that Serif (Affinity) is supporting the Mac they want to migrate away from CorelDraw.
However, they feel trapped with CorelDraw because:
They do not want to lose their CDR files created over many years.
In addition, they want to avoid exporting hundreds of files out of CorelDraw one at a time so the files could be used elsewhere.
Here is an opportunity for Affinity to make friends in the Mac community. Make Affinity products able to perfectly import Adobe and Corel files. Do this and you will have an automatic customer base for a long time.

Fitting text to paths is a feature we will be adding later at no extra cost.
If by "break text apart" you mean converting it to curves, we can do that already. You can also use text to clip other shapes without converting it to curves.
macalienx reacted to Rogbike in Manipulate Text in Affinity Designer
Hi Just bought Affinity Designer 1.12 as it was billed as the alternative to Adobe Illustrator. I used to use Corel Draw but after upgrading to latest Mac OS X I am unable to use it.. Very disappointed to learn that I can't manipulate text. what I want to do is fit text to paths, and break text apart, but I am unable to do it. If I attempt to open a document that has Manipulated text then it doesn't display that text. So what am I to do?
