  1. It would be very helpful if 'Area' settings could be included and saved with user created presets. I am always forgetting to check 'Current Page' and ending up with multiple files.
  2. Hi Revo I agree with you. I love Affinity and anyone coming over to them from Adobe will be very pleased. But, having come over from Serif they are lacking in a lot of features we were using on a daily basis and seem a long way away from adding them. I think many people do not realise just how far ahead of the game Serif products were. I think if someone got hold of them and added a couple of small additions to modernise them they would continue to be amazing. Even just a new dark UI would be fantastic. Serif products are packed full of features that Affinity users have been crying out for for years like: Data Merge, Mesh Warp/fill and Vector Trace to name just a few. That being said I don't think we will see the Serif apps become OS because they would become a very powerful competitor and damage sales of the Affinity brand.

    Data merge

    I fully agree Paul. That used to be the Serif business model. We had a new version every 12-18 months for a reasonable upgrade fee. I think if Affinity run with this it would be a good way to keep the money coming in and give the users a good development guide.

    Data merge

    Serif. I feel that we were in the loop a little more with road maps to the next release. Side note: We are still using the data merge in Serif PagePlus as a stop gap.

    Image Trace to Vector Path

    The one in Serif Drawplus was very good. We are still using that on a daily basis.

    Data merge

    Come on Affinity, please give your customers some idea when essential features will be available. We are all running businesses and scheduling projects in the design industry. We don't know if a feature will be added in a few weeks or a few years, we have seen both cases. We will not mind if you tell us a feature is difficult and is not coming any time soon. At least then we can schedule the task to different software while we are waiting. Your software is amazing, we just need better developer/customer communication.

    Data merge

    Do we have any rough idea when data merge will be ready Affinity?
  8. Would love to see a startup assistant like the ones in the Serif Plus range and now in the Adobe suite. It is such a boost to work flow being able to access recent files from a visual list and browse custom templates.
  9. It would be great to have the fantastic feature from DrawPlus where selecting the Node Tool gives you complete control of kerning, leading and spacing on type. This is amazing for speeding up workflow when refining type.

    [Fixed] EPS Import

    Sure, thank you. barcode.eps
  12. I am having trouble importing EPS barcodes in to Affinity Programs. The barcode in Affinity imports missing the numbers. I have also included the same EPS opened in DrawPlus which is complete. It also works fine in Corel and Adobe.

    I have the same problem. SVGs work fine from DrawPlus. Has this been raised with the devs for repairing in future updates?

    View Pasteboard

    Thanks Alfred I understand this is how other apps like Photoshop work, but Affinity Photo is better than just another Photoshop. I just think it would be handy as a switchable view option like we have in Designer. There is a lot of wasted real estate on screen, especially when working on a portrait design, that would be useful for reference materials.
