    AP: Proportional Cropping

    Yes, please! Particularly needed for upsizing the canvas from centre without going into dialogues or calculating pixels. So you have an image, hit crop tool, set an aspect ratio (I do this a lot for a news site, processing upwards of hundred images at a time) and then want to drag out while keeping the original image in the centre. Edit: added a couple of GIFs to show workflow I'm talking about. See how it's neat and simple and it snaps in Photoshop and in Affinity it's kind of a messy process - crop doesn't snap to image height, there's more manual moving about and the image doesn't end up in the centre (I know I could switch to select tool, select layer then use centre button, but that's more hoops to jump through).

    [Fixed] Font weights missing in Designer

    Hi Chris (thanks & sorry for the slow reply). Yep, can do. Yes, the typeface works in every other app I've tried (examples attached). Thanks, Erland.
  4. Yes please! +1 for this making it on to the roadmap sooner rather than later :-)
  5. Hi, having an issue here - possibly a bug. I have been designing something and using a typeface (Proxima Nova) which is installed in all its weights on my system. A number of text elements are in Proxima Nova Bold. Now, after I opened it up most recently, the bold weight is missing from the menu in the top bar and font dialogue. So if I select previously created bold text, the weights/styles dropdown is blank. If I try to change a new piece of text to bold, it only has a list of some of the other weights. I've checked the font in Font Manager and it still appears to be correctly installed, nothing has changed there. Any insight into what might be causing this?
