  1. It seems with V2 the Affinity Publisher app doesn't include the export persona when you choose the Designer workspace? Is there a way to get the same export persona options inside Publisher, or is it not in the plans?
  2. Basically is a mask that you can just throw on top of an image, and it will create an illusion of a divider without cutting the image. 001 - 1609930330844151810.mp4
  3. Video is not for you. It's ok. No. You're wrong. He was very straightforward. I appreciate his help and the video he recorded. He found a way to achieve this need even though the app can't let you do it by default. Again, he is a genius. You should worry more on helping instead of defending Affinity blindly.
  4. I don't think you understand what we're talking about here. I'm not even in disagreement with you. Just clarifying the way a developer thinks when designing a tool. It's OK if you can't visualize the point in question. It's not a requirement. Have fun!
  5. Is a vector designer program for professionals. Implementing for the simplest needs is basically what they need to achieve. When I develop a phone app I don't skip the simplest implementations based on my judgement. I need to cover all areas of the interface so many people can interact without issues. You won't believe how many people these days still think that they can't use a credit card with a PayPal link, I mean literally they don't buy it if they don't have a PayPal account. The reality is that you don't need a PayPal account to use that link and pay for your product. But the majority of users don't know it. My job as a developer is that a costumer is able to pay without a problem. The same goes with developing a professional graphic design app. This is common sense.
  6. Don't get over creative here; you know exactly what this topic is about. This is not about dropping animations, or anything you want to mention just to back up your unjustifiable comment about the lack of importing a basic SVG as vector file on a project. I will be more precise, so you can't pretend to not understand the need here: A plain line art logo in SVG format can't be dropped on a Affinity Designer without being embedded. Other vectors apps such as the ones mentioned above had the ability to do it. I know you are a very hard-core Affinity advocate in this forum, but you need to be realistic and accept the deficiencies of the app as well. I love Affinity apps as they are my main design tools in my daily job, but it's kind of annoying double-clicking an SVG to get the vector in your project every time. Sometimes I need to make a poster of 200 icons. That's not fun at all.
  7. Vectornator and Vectorstyler do that instantly. One if them is a free app developed by one person. Affinity is a team. What are you trying to say here?
  8. That’s how I’ve been doing it all the time. It’s annoying. I was hoping for a setting or a shift-drag feature to drop the svg as a vector inside your document. Maybe will be a feature on the next update. Cross my fingers. All other vector editing software are able to import an svg as a vector file when dragging and dropping. Crossing my fingers.
  9. Maybe I'm missing something here. Every time I drop an SVG file to a Designer project, it is automatically turned into an embedded file instead of the same SVG file I'm dropping. Is there a setting to avoid this? Sometimes I just need the SVG file in my project as it is.
  10. Your post is incredibly good. Very well explained and super helpful. I wish all the contributions on this forum were exactly as yours so we can have a community of professionals looking for unity and mastering the tools we choose to achieve our goals. I barely find useful comments like the one you shared with us. Most of the time is blinded fanatics that doesn’t want to accept the flaws or misbehavior of the apps and pretend that everything is find. Keep your posts coming, my friend!
  11. I make the changes and also found out that I can save directly to iCloud! That’s awesome!
  12. If you have a Mac use keynote app or the right click to save main person: https://d.pr/v/KF44b1
  13. Besides the ironically intention to continue with this already finished topic, I feel the need to just point out your justification argument of a not well UI/UX design implemented as it perfectly illustrates the fact that we're not talking about a Word Processor, in fact that is why I thought it was a good thing to discuss because we were talking about a professional design software. I can tolerate a missing graphic creation tool on a word processor, but a 'setting option' for something that I don't have on my designer tool is as good as buying a house with a pool filter installed without a pool. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving Day with your family, my friend. Let's just end this topic already, at the end you will keep your opinion of "it's not a flaw" and I will keep my opinion of "It is a flaw" over and over again. Truce?
  14. I missed your post, friend. It seems I was confused by a design implementation of the graphic interface. I thought something was added on version 2 based on the settings options, and I was wrong. Others were triggered by my reaction, but the conversation was moving to another path and I stop trying to explain my personal experience with the issue. So, there's no point here, I received my answer and everything is fine. Answering your questions just for fun will be: 1. Are you saying you disagree with their reasons for this or something else? - No, I was referring to the fact that you mentioned there were a lot of forums with the same topic. Basically admitting many users were confused with the same setting in Photo. 2. Do you think they should do differently? - If I was one of the UI/UX designers, with a small [i] next to the setting option, explaining that it would work with Designer files when opened, should work fine but, hey what a UI/UX designer knows about it right? Have a great night, friend. Keep enjoying V2 Apps! I'm so happy with them, I should get a job as a sales representative! lol, Already make all my friends buying the universal deal!
  15. Topic has been solved, explained and understood. Anything else, I will be happy to help.
  16. Again, it's obvious I will never be the person with the right observation when the lack of tolerance for a constructive opinion is leading the conversation. I asked for respect of opinion, so I will respect others opinions as well. Let's just agree to disagree.
  17. It's sad that a real observation about a design flaw triggers some people's affiliation to a certain app. Let's pretend that you are right, and it's perfectly designed with a target audience in particular. What happens if the new user, a never experienced in Affinity ecosystem designer coming from maybe Pixelmator find that in the settings. Obviously, will start looking for a way to create art boards. Frustrated will be here looking for answers and someone here tells him that is there for marketing reasons and if he buys Designer he will be able to create those art boards. Do you really think that will make him happy? As a UI/UX designer under Sketch software, working for agencies more than 20+ years, it is in my opinion (one that should be respected because has not been said to insult anybody here) a flaw in graphic user and experience design. Why? It's not directly related with the app functionality. Primary rule of UI/UX. Hope you can understand my point.
  18. I know that. I was wondering if you can create an art board in Photo, the same way you do it on Designer. It seems it can't be done... weird UI design flaw. Thanks
  19. I noticed Artboards Settings on Photo 2. I can't find where to make them? Any help will be appreaciated. Thanks
  20. Vectorstyler is 50% off right now (Black Friday Sale) I mean… if you were waiting to get it, the time is now!
  21. Pixelmator Pro, Photopea, and Acorn export editable text. Why? Those apps are intended for professional users. Even one click background eraser is a default feature on the OS itself and other apps take advantage of it. I’m not saying you’re giving excuses for a lack of features. I’m just saying they can’t ignore who these apps are designed for. This is not for mom’s free time to do some photo crafts laptop. Even Linux has apps that offer that. You know how sad I was today buying Pixelmator Pro just for editable psd export and instant selection? I mean, I paid $99 for a great bundle but we need that bundle to achieve our needs.
  22. I have faith that it will be on 2.1 Affinity knows the struggle. Just an PSD editable text export will do. I don't need effect, plugins, add-ons or any of the other Adobe crap inside a PSD file. I just need editable text. That's all.
