  1. Thanks Callum! I wouldn't have figured that out
  2. I'm making a bulleted list and I can't find how to change the colour of bullet points (without changing the text itself). I've searched around and ended up buried in character and paragraph style boxes, but I still can't find where to change it! Any help appreciated! Thanks, Tony
  3. When I had to give up Corel Draw (a Mac OS upgrade issue) the thing I most missed is that it has Boolean And, Not and Or blend modes. I figured out how to do some totally unique things with these. If you introduced these I'm pretty sure AD would be the only other vector software to have them.

  5. I avoided upgrading my Mac OS beyond Snow Leopard for a long time, to keep Corel Draw 11 running. I used Corel Draw for nearly 20 years. Now that I had to change to a newer MacBook I can't run Draw at all, so I have ZERO access to much of my work and can't do the SVG export either. I'm considering paying a local print bureau to convert a load of stuff on their Windows/Corel setup for me. I'd love AD to support .cdr files. It would be like a tiny little Christmas Please?
  6. Yes, I just tried and you're right as well. Goodness knows. I just know that more than once over a few hours I found myself waving the artboard around. I'll update you next time it happens, unless I'm too embarassed by how, thanks, Tony
  7. Yes, you're right. It wasn't Select All that does it. My bad. I remember what it is now—I can't sweep-select the whole thing without snagging the artboard too. Thanks for replying t
  8. Hello cleverer folks, Is there a way to lock the artboard without making everything else in the document inaccessible? It would be great if the artboard didn't get treated like just another object (eg. when Selecting All etc) and could simply be passive like the "page" itself once it has been set up. Thanks! Tony
  9. Hi all, I have downloaded the great Gradients from Dream Resources but I can't find a way to import them in AD 1.5.4, as everything I try the result is unrecognised file. I see they used to just drag in but not now…
  10. The ESC key. I was thinking I'd tried that and it didn't apply the edit but yes, you're right. Thanks :)
  11. aha… That must be it. I was using it as a way to escape the editing and keep the changes (like it does in Photoshop) which it appeared to do and didn't notice that it was doing more than just popping me out of the edit. Thanks. Is there a purely keyboard way to get out of a text edit and keep the changes?
  12. I'm getting an issue on Designer 1.5.4 where editable text, either artistic or frame text, will suddenly become a group of vector shapes and is no longer editable as text. I can't work out what is causing this to happen. If I notice in time I can sometimes undo until it changes back but sometimes that's not possible for some reason (maybe a save? Not sure). Thanks, Tony
  13. Yes, really annoying. Just came on the forum for exactly that reason. Thought it was because of my Wacom but it's with trackpad as well. Otherwise loving Designer. Almost spooky timing there Mak…!
  14. Thanks! That simple, huh? How did I miss it…? :) Okay, time to buy
