  1. Hi there, I'm about to receive my new iPad Mini 5 which now supports the Apple Pencil 1st Gen. I remember a post where it was said that iPad Mini Support will not be added because of the small interface. Well, with the Apple Pencil this should be no problem, nor should be the performance (A12 Bionic). So I would like to encourage you to consider adding iPad Mini 5 support for Affinity Designer and Photo. Thanks in advance!

    [Beta] Still no Pen Mode option

    Right, I'm using a bluetooth mouse to zoom via click+space. It's a workaround and I don't draw too often. But I agree pen mode should be implemented.

    [Beta] Still no Pen Mode option

    +1 for this. I keep disabling the touch panel just for using Affinity Designer with my Surface Pen ^^
  5. I agree, please add an option to enable pen drawing only.
  6. Hi all, did you notice that the panning and general performance drops significantly when the grid is turned on? Thanks in advance!
  7. Hi, I'm using the latest version of Designer. Settings are default. The problem is: The larger the artboard, the laggier the panning gets when the grid is visible. Affinity Designer 01.10.2018 13_38_37.mp4
  8. Awesome to see this great piece of software becoming reality! Will there be other color profiles in the future? Like FOGRA51, FOGRA52 or Euroscale? Thanks!
  9. Totally agree. Even better if bleed could be defined in the new files dialogue.
  10. Expanding strokes is very important, especially when converting icons. So PLEASE fix this.
  11. I don't know, but I use my Galaxy Tab S3 mainly for making notes and doing wireframes / scribbles for my screendesign work. I'd NEVER design on my tablet, that's what my workstation is for! It's not very productive to work on a tablet. But that's a general issue. Why would I spend 2 hours fiddling with a tablet if I could do the same work (better) on my workstation in just 15 minutes? Just because it's cool? I don't agree.
  12. Just stumbled upon the same problem. I printed a OneNote note to pdf with Microsofts PDF Printer and tried to open the PDF in Affinity. When I open the PDF in Illustrator it displays the text correctly but is still missing those PostScript CIDFont+F1 fonts.
  13. Bummer. Will it be ported to Windows? Or are you planning to bring that iPad behaviour to the desktop versions?
  14. I can't find this option unfortunately. (Windows 10, Dell 7373 2in1 Notebook)

    Bug: Expand Stroke has very low accuracy

    I'd really appreciate a fix for this. It's an important step in our icon font workflow. Thanks in advance :)
  16. It just looks cheap. Consider removing it from the dark themetoo

    Remove gradient from light theme

    I don't think so ^^ Please move it to feature request then, sorry
  18. Recently I stumbled upon the problem that I really needed to replace symbols with other symbols. I couldn't find such a feature unfortunately. Also although constraints are great it's pretty limited. I can't enter number values but have to drag things around. There's also no option to remove all constraints properties form a selection. What I really would wish for Affinity Designer is a more technical approach how UI Design works. Like I've seen in an other tool two layout modes would be great: Freeform and Computed. While freeform works like we know, computed elements would float left / top and collapse accordingly and would have a relation to each other (like when I resize a box above another box, the position of that box changes). Also defining relationships between elements like "this box always has a 20px top margin" would be awesome. Would love to hear about your thoughts.

    Copy as SVG

    Am I doing something wrong? When trying to copy an element as SVG simply nothing happens. no SVG output. Thanks in advance :)
  20. I don't mind PSD export if SVG export is optimized, but that's more likely and future proof.
  21. Hi all, I'd love to get a clear statement from the Affinity team if the PSD text import / export will ever be fixed. Right now I don't quite know what tool I should mainly use for screendesigning. I used to do that work in Affinity Designer but my clients were not satisfied with the fact that I couldn't deliver inspectable files. So I switched to Adobe X D in January which honestly is a joke compared to the features of AD. Thanks!!
  22. I notices that when exporting SVGs that have rectangles with rounded corners, the corners are being converted to paths, therefore the value is not visible. Do you plan to implement rounded corners for SVGs like this? https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Tutorial/Basic_Shapes#Rectangles Same applies to shadows https://www.w3schools.com/graphics/svg_feoffset.asp Would love to hear from you.
  23. I'd really love to get some feedback on this. I just tried to copy a rounded rectangle from Figma to Adobe X'D and it preserves the editability of the rounded corners. Would love to export SVGs from Affinity Designer too. Also multi-line text areas get split into lines and shadows aren't exported the way I can edit them afterwards. Thanks in advance!
