    I'm not seeing it under High Sierra either, but I do note that your screenshot is using the dark interface while his is on the light interface.

    Yes, those are proprietary file formats which are not publicly documented and change from release to release so they would be a moving target of reverse-engineering that is not likely worth Serif's time to unravel.

    Curious that the icon hasn't received its rounded corners yet.
    You should really consider using some other geometric shape to make the icons more distinctive rather than blending in so carefully...   triangles maybe?  😎

    I'm locking this thread as it's getting off-topic/personal and it's already served its purpose as feedback/suggestion to implement full Photoshop plugin support.

    I for one will not "subscribe" to software regardless of the price or function.
    I might subscribe to something that is legitimately a service, such as a site hosting video content that gets added to frequently (Hulu, Netflix, etc.), to a utility (cell phone service, etc.), insurance or the like, but software categorically does not fit that model and should not be paid for that way.  Period, end of story.
    Quark is doing something a bit different in that they are offering a subscription to an update service, in which the software is licensed perpetually but you effectively pre-pay to get all of the upgrades released over a period of time.  Something like that I am willing to accept as well within reason.
    Adobe lost me as a potential customer when they dropped the option of a perpetual license.

    Tools are on the toolbar on the left.
    Properties of tools (such as the type of gradient) are in the context toolbar at the top of the window.
    That is consistent and appropriate.

    Hi, welcome to the forums!
    You should be very careful about using your email address as a screen name or otherwise making it accessible on a public forum as it invites spammers.
    Please consider changing that.

    Less important to who?
    Most important to who?
     
    Different users have different priorities.  The most important thing to you might be useless to others and vice versa.
     
    Also, sometimes the "most important" functions will rely on other functionality to be built before it can, and those "less important" functions just might be implemented directly from the building blocks that are being constructed to produce the "most important" ones.  In other words, the "less important" functions just might be essential to creating the "most important" functions in a manner that Serif believes is consistent with their objectives for the program.

    fde101 reacted to garrettm30 in Panel Shortcuts should not Toggle Visibility   
    Serif has already considered and implemented assigning shortcuts to things that are not in menus.The Tools, Node Tool, Pen Tool, Text Input, and Miscellaneous sections within the keyboard shortcuts are additional shortcut options that are not part of the menus. With that framework already in place, I think additional suggestions such as in this thread could fit in easily.

    It seems that the tool has two rules:
    if a path is closed, offset either outward or inward otherwise the path is open, so offset both outward and inward The first Fill option, "Auto closed", results in the behaviour described above.
    The second Fill option, "Force open", results in a closed path being considered as unjoined at end/start and then the open path rule is followed
    The third Fill option, "Force closed", results in an open path being considered as having a linear segment joining end to start (as happens in Affinity Boolean operations) and then the closed path rule is followed.

    This is really a different category of selection than the other options.  The current set of options work at the object level but this would almost require discontiguous text selection to be implemented first as these are properties of a subset of a text object, rather than an entire object.
    I would suggest that if this functionality is needed Find and Replace should be used instead, though that is only available in Publisher - this could easily take the form of a "Find Same Font/Style/..." option which would configure and execute the search to do exactly that as well as displaying the Find & Replace panel if it is hidden, in one step.

    The status bar when using this tool says that holding option while using it should clone the object but that doesn't seem to be happening - am I missing something?
    Any chance of the contour getting an independent stroke from the main object?  Currently the stroke moves to the contour, which is appropriate, but would be nice to have the option of applying a stroke in two places as a result of this tool...

    Serif has often placed milestone releases on sale for a short time upon release (such as the release of Publisher when it first came out) and existing customers are typically notified of those sales.
    A 2.0 release might follow that pattern, and customers who jump on it would get the "discount" of the sale pricing?
    Just hypothesizing, but it would seem to fit the pattern they have established so far.

    Not as such, but something more like the "talk" / "discussion" pages on a media wiki site might be useful as a means by which to provide more targeted feedback to the documentation team, if provided on the online version of the help (affinity.help site)?
    That would be sort of "attached" to a help topic but still on a separate page with the interface making it relatively clear that it is out of band with the actual help text...
