  1. Thank you for implementing the change to Pointer Support, I no longer get the crash with my Huion tablets on my PCs (plural).
  2. Thank you for implementing the change to Pointer Support, I no longer get the crash with my Huion tablets. Obviously if this change upsets Surface Pro users I'm sure most of us wouldn't mind if we had to disable the feature rather than Surface Pro users having enable it.
  3. The image from the IrfanView main program or it's Thumbnail Viewer can't be dragged onto the open active document but you can drag the image onto either the open file name or Layers Tab (the actual Layers tab - not the list of layers) and a new document will open. or you could add Affinity as an external editor in IrfanView and then use the short cut listed in IrfanView to send the image to Affinity > IrfanView - Options - Properties/Settings - Miscellaneous - Set external editors - browse to Affinity Photo.exe. I think this is an issue with IrfanView as Dragging and Dropping a file onto an open image works as expected when using - Windows File Explorer, Corel Connect, Adobe Bridge, Zoner Photo, P3dO Explore, Microsoft Photo Gallery etc.. even the now defunct Serif PhotoPlus organiser can ...
  4. From the screen shot - Windows Photo has the 'Automatically enhance your photos' feature turned on, so the image appears overly processed, which makes a comparison slightly more difficult, as it's not how the default RAW image looks.
  5. I don't think it's people complaining. When the 'Plus' range was removed from active development an announcement was made that current Serif Customers would get a discount on the new Affinity Range, those customers are now asking if they will get the promised discount and if it's the same discount that is now being offered to everyone. Seems like a valid question. I also find it a little sad that you've used the term 'people complaining', those 'people' are your customers and for some of them it's been almost 20 years of being your customers
  6. with the move tool selected, depress the left mouse button then the right mouse button and dragging over the items will select them - works for me. I can press the right mouse button at any time during a drag with the left mouse button depressed and the items are selected
  7. Just to confirm this. If you open the Guilds Manager (View - Guides Manager) you will see the guides you drag across are listed but not visible on the artboard. A work around is to use the Guides Manager to add guides to artboard 2 using the paper symbol at the bottom of the Guides box, these guides will be visible
  8. yes it should be Pi and either 'Pythagoras' constant' or the more elegant 'Pythagorean constant'
  9. Windows short cut for smart quotes: Alt + 0147 opening quote ( “ ) , Alt + 0148 closing quote ( ” ) The Adventurer Light font that I have doesn't have those characters so the Alt + Unicode fails You could type two single curly quotes: which the font does contain, using Alt + 0145 opening quote ( ‘ ) , Alt + 0146 closing quote ( ’ )
  10. I posted this in another thread in July on importing Affinity into CorelDraw but i'll put it here as well as this till seems to be ongoing: CorelDraw X5, X6, X7, and X8 can import up to Acrobat 9 (PDF 1.7), it can also import PDF/A and some PDF/X Corel say they support Adobe programs up to CS6 For information - CorelDraw can open an Acrobat 9 (PDF 1.7) that is exported from Serif DrawPlus, so I don't think it's entirely a problem with CorelDraw
  11. Hi. my Windows 10 updated yesterday to Windows 10 1607 (Build 14393.105) and when saving affinity files I sometimes have to physically refresh the desktop to see the thumbnail, not always though. for me windows 10 has always occasionally nodded off so I've become accustomed to poking it with a stick every now and then to wake it up
  12. For me a cold launch for Affinity Designer is about 15 seconds, then about 9 seconds for any subsequent run during the day
  13. It is indeed funky, I reported the swatches failure to apply correctly when version was released and again with I think it was. although for me the way the Recent swatch feature functions is slightly annoying, i hate that the last colour swatch is removed when replaced by a previously used colour and having it separated from the current Document swatch pallet just means you have to keep switching to get back colours lost from the recent tabs - lol think i'm just to finicky

    Touch screen with no keybaord

    Hi. they probably come under tablet hot keys or tablet Virtual Keyboard. Tablets already have virtual keyboards so you can enter ctrl/shift etc... when using photoshop, affinity etc I only know about MadLock as I found it while looking for Keyboard macro software as I use two keyboards (for typing and assigning hotkeys) A couple of others i quite like are - quickbuttons - https://www.mjtnet.com/quickbuttons.htm Funky Bar - http://www.funkybunnies3d.com/tools.php#funkybar There are also a few art specific add ons for AutoHotKey - like ArtDock for surface pro and Radial Menu - AutoHotKey is quite powerful but was more than i needed for own requirements
