    MaryLou got a reaction from davemac2015 in Spiral feature   
    I would like to see a Spiral tool added under the Pen tool.  That was one of the very best features in DrawPlus and would make a wonderful addition to Affinity Designer.  The folks on my forum used it... a lot.. and we all miss it.  Please give us a Spiral tool in AD.  :D

    MaryLou got a reaction from only7yb in Remove "okay" button on Alignment Panel   
    Several of us were discussing the fact that you have to click a button to accept the changes when using the Alignment panel in Affinity Designer.  This is sooooo annoying!  Why is that button there?  Most times, I forget to click it because just about everything else is automatically applied.  For example, if I apply any of the effects, I don't have to click a button to apply them.  If I select a style, I don't have to click a button to apply it.  Right off, I can't think of anywhere that I have to click a button to apply something other than this darn alignment panel.
     
    Any chance you could eliminate that?  If one doesn't like the effect, we can always use an Undo.

    No problem, Alfred.  I do know the difference in the various graphic types and if it was something worth keeping, I would have used the .png format.  Using .jpg is just habit.  At one time, that, and .gif were about the only formats available.  Hard to teach an old dog new tricks sometimes! :) :)

    MaryLou got a reaction from DarkClown in Menu Alignment and sorted   
    I would like to see the dropdown menus in the panels sorted and left aligned.  For example, the Styles menu.  It's so hard to read and you have to search for everything.  Just having it left aligned instead of centered would help, but having it sorted alphabetically would help even more.   I'm attaching an example of what I mean.

    MaryLou got a reaction from Daniele Salvatore in View & Move Tool Switching   
    This isn't about AP placing images as an object, it's about the tools changing when attempting to paste.  The move tool is active when you make a copy but when you want to paste the copy on another image, the tool switches back to  the View tool.  I am happy that it does paste as an object, that's how it should be.  The problem is in the tools.  It works great in Affinity Designer, but not in Photo.

    MaryLou got a reaction from Nikolaycrove in Preview   
    On the current version of Affinity Designer, something new has been added to the Studios.  The first one is 32 Bit Preview.
     
    What is that for?  I was not able to find any information in the help files so don't know what to do with it.  Can anyone help, please?  Oh, and in layman's terms, please.

    MaryLou got a reaction from Alfred in Export Preview   
    Please give us a preview of what we're exporting.  The default is Whole Document and if we forget to change that, we end up exporting the entire workspace instead of only the intended object.  DrawPlus had a GREAT preview so we could see exactly what was being saved.
     
    In Affinity Designer, I end up exporting an image, then opening it back up to make sure I only got the image and not the whole page.  The other option would be to make the options you select when exporting "stick".  When saving several objects, I have to reset it back to saving with no background for each individual object.   Better yet, give us both!

    MaryLou got a reaction from Alfred in Artboard Document Sizes   
    Who's to say that I will not buy an iPad in the future? There are sizes on the Page Presets on the Document Setup, so why not be consistent throughout?  I don't agree that "most people" create an A4 page without caring what the physical dimensions are. If people didn't care,  why bother to have more than one size?  It doesn't matter, it's not worth arguing over but consistency makes things nicer for everyone.

    Even Serif's very own DrawPlus has a Spiral Tool, although it wasn't implemented until the next to last version of the program.
