  1. There should probably be an "angle" option in the box where the gradient is first created?
  2. It seems to be Control+Return in Scrivener too... I'm seeing indications that some Mac software might use Command+Option+Return for this so it may not be consistent across apps. I don't see it listed in Apple's Human Interface Guidelines: https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/macos/user-interaction/keyboard/
  3. Every time I start publisher right now I get a message that there is an unsaved file or something like that and asking if I want to open it; I keep telling it not to open it and it keeps asking each time I start up again. Shouldn't it remove the file or at least stop pesting me about it?
  4. If you are using them like that then supporting multiple masters per page would make sense too...
  5. It is actually an Apple Cinema HD Display I just confirmed this bug is still present in 133.
  6. I'm trying to imagine what global layers would be and thinking of a group that is on all pages even though the content of the group is distinct for each page?
  7. While I understand that in general, it might be nice to at least have the option to convert a single-page spread-based document to an artboard-based one in case someone accidentally created a spread-based document that was intended to be artboard-based and didn't realize it until after they started working on it? Just a thought... Interpreting this mix of messages to mean that as of 1.7.x Designer can also create spread-based files, but Photo can only work with those created elsewhere? If Photo can also create them it might be interesting to build on this with something similar to Corel Painter's tracing paper / animation capabilities by treating each "page" of the document as a frame in a flipbook-style animation, allowing the previous page / "frame" to be seen behind the current one (tracing paper style) to draw that next frame... wrong forum I know (different product), but just a thought that came up while thinking about this.
  8. Will it be possible to convert a spread-based document to an artboard-based one? Will Photo support these also?

    Apple Color Emoji

    If it were a normal font, I wouldn't expect it I would think this more likely a lack of support for color fonts (guessing SVG fonts)?
  10. There have been several recent threads on this already. You can use the tab key to toggle all of the studio items on and off quickly for example.
  11. That option seems like it would be a fairly good way for Affinity to cover a lot of turf relatively easily. Should also make a preference to determine if imported images are linked or embedded by default.
  12. Matching feature for feature is simply adding features without purpose. That leads to bloat and is not a good approach to software design.

    Some Issues with Beta 128

    Keyboards with a numeric keypad also have a + button on the keypad; that might be what they had in mind?
  14. Given that each has capabilities that don't make sense in the other case, this would cause a loss of something depending on what was actually being used: if a text box is linked to another text box, I would guess that link would be broken, so how would you handle the conversion? If the artistic text is on a path, you would lose the path? It seems like a nice feature, but it would probably need to be limited to those cases where the conversion is effectively lossless (not available for a linked text box or for text on a path, for example), or generate some kind of warning or something about what would be lost?
