  1. I hadn't thought of playing with different alignment methods. Thanks so much, this indeed solves my problem.
  2. This is odd. I seem to remember this working before, but I can't get it to work now. Included is a small screencast. Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong ? expandstroke.mov
  3. Sorry if this has been asked before, I searched but could not find an answer. I currently have a few lines to which I have applied "arrowheads" start and end (actually I used circles instead of arrowheads..) and now I am trying to "flatten" the design. However, I am unable to convert to curves (a stroke is already a curve) and when I choose "expand stroke", the stroke itself is expanded as expected, however the arrow ends have vanished... is this expected behaviour ? Is there any way I can achieve this simple task ?
  4. Just a quick follow up. It seems that my problem was to blame at Apple raid. I use a few RAID 0 striped sets, and even in Finder I noticed laggy performance, while the raid set should have 6000mb+ read and write speeds. I have now switched over to softraid, and performance seems to be more reliable. So please ignore my previous message.
  5. I've seen this mentioned in the Publisher and Photo forums too, this is now happening for me with Designer. I have a document (+/- 80mb) that I'm trying to save, and the save progress bar just stays idle. I've left it for 15 minutes, but my documents aren't saving anymore. I need to force quit the application, (the application does stay responsive though). During the save-freeze, I see no disk activity at all (I use istat menus), and Designer does have access to my SSD. It seems that I now also cannot relaunch designer anymore... I'll try a reboot and see if that fixes things...
  6. This is really odd. Today it seems to work fine. Don't know what went wrong yesterday. Anyway, I only type numbers and tab... no enter key. I'll keep an eye on this and see if it pops up again
  7. I just noticed something annoying.. When changing colors of any object, I usually type in values for R,G and B, going from input field to input field with the TAB key... But now it seems that the color tool looses it's focus after tabbing, meaning, when I fill the first value in the Red input field, then TAB to go to Green, Designer looses focus of the field, and now my TAB key works on the interface, and hides/shows all my pallettes. This is a bit frustrating, and I would be greatfull if you could fix this please...
  8. Thanks Garry, I use the applications in the same way as you. I was only curious if I was missing out on something, but it seems I'm good 🙂
  9. Hi Sean, A screencast, as well as the crash log is attached here. I am using the plain macOS Font Book, as seen in the screencast, with close to 300 fonts installed. This is 1.8.1 (all apps crash for me, photo designer and publisher). Yesterday, the apps would crash as soon as I started typing in the font list, today it took some effort... so it seems to get better with time :-) I hope the crash log points to something conclusive. This is on a 2019 Mac Pro, 12core 3.3Ghz, 48GB ram, Radeon VII GPU Screen_Recording_2020-02-28_at_09_28_04.mov Affinity Designer_2020-02-28-092855_Mac-Pro-2019.crash
  10. Just a question out of interest. Users who have Publisher and Designer/Photo, do you still launch those apps individually, or do you use Publisher as the main app and use StudioLink ? I have all three, and I seem to have stuck in launching them individually, but I am thinking that might not be the most efficient way. otoh, when using Publisher mainly, I seem to have lost all the persona's (panormam, develop, slicing/export...) is there a way to access those when using StudioLink ?
  11. Yes indeed, I just updated with the "check for updates" function. Thanks. Glad that the Designer/Photo StudioLink versions do not have the crashing bug when searching in the font list.
  12. I have and use all 3 Affinity apps, Photo, Designer and Publisher. Due to bugs I updated to version 1.8.1 this morning for Designer and Photo, but Publisher is still at version 1.8.0 and now the StudioLink won't work because of the version mismatch. Will we get a Publisher 1.8.1 soon ?
  13. As reported in the Designer forum, Affinity Photo also crashes when searching in the font list :
  14. I can reproduce this any time. First I type some text in the document, and then I try to change the font. When searching in the font list, upon the second character I enter in the search field, Designer crashes. (Photo too, Publisher seems to work fine). This happens since version 1.8, and I just updated to 1.8.1 and the same bug is still present. I am on macOS 10.15.3 and both versions come from the Appstore, if that matters.
  15. I would really love to have a function to search layers by name. I often have to deal with documents that have close to 100 layers (don't ask, they are provided by the client this way), and digging through the list of layers is insanely time consuming. The dark side has had this function for ages, and I understand that this might not be easy to implement, but this would make my job so much easier, so therefor this feature request.
