    pfbt got a reaction from arkitect in Move ruler origin   
    Undoubtedly this request is already somewhere in the many; and a google search shows lots of energetic pleas for it:
    The ability to move the ruler origin is essential for my work. 
    I can't dump Illustrator until I get this feature as well as arrowheads and calligraphic brushes.
    Designer has some amazing features, but if we're to have a satisfactory replacement for Illustrator, wouldn't it be better to provide the absolutely basic and essential features first and then add the arcane stuff later?  (Same problem in Publisher – can't anchor images and that's absolutely basic and essential for dumping InDesign.)
    Affinity team, please focus on the can't-live-without features of Illustrator and put them in Designer ... until you do, we're still being price gouged by Adobe.  Meanwhile, I find I'm using Graphic far more than Designer because at least it has arrowheads (not as good as Illustrator, but acceptable) and calligraphic brushes.
    There's so much to love about Designer but the missing essential features become a source of resentment the longer they're missing. 
    I guess Affinity is still deciding whether they want us to leave Adobe or just use Designer as well ...??

    pfbt got a reaction from Designing Woman in How can I open Indesign (indd and idml) Files in Publisher?   
    Agree.  I have 20 years' worth of INDD files and now laboriously, as time permits, wading through and exporting IDML so I can move to Quark and/or Affinity Publisher. But would be so good if Publisher could import/open INDD files.  can't wait to dump Adobe and their rip-off subscription system.

    Many, many thanks.  Also sounds like importing PDF works reasonably–very well..  However, I'll give the batch converter a trial tomorrow.

    I bought it just because I'm really excited on the replacement potential of AI. But its REALLY necessary  to add arrows (at the ends of lines) and dash lines in my work as a UI designer. so Plz add this function into your product ASAP. I'm almost crazy and it really disturbs my work!!
    I try to import PDF with dash lines into AD from other apps, but it doesn't recognize dash lines at all?????Whats this problem???
    I looked around the bbs and found lots people who have the same needs. NOT only use the arrow tools!!!!! its really not easy to use!!!!

    I need arrowheads on paths, one end, both, and arrowhead shape options.

    Apologies. I did not explain what I meant very well, which was just that I assume arrows are no longer on the roadmap because they added the arrow shape tool, which I'm guessing they think is enough.
    But like a lot of other people I do not think that is enough & would also like to see arrowheads as an option for the end(s) of strokes, at the least for open curves. Having the shape options shown in the center box of my example would be nice, but for now I would settle for some simple arrowheads that for example scaled with stroke weight.

    Yes, he and we knew that. But for about 1.5 years zing0714 and “lots people” need “arrows at the ends of lines … NOT only … the arrow tools!!!!!” as you can see in his attached screenshots.
