  1. Fonthill, This has been requested before by several different members. While the raster brushes and fills are great, vector ones would be even more useful for me. I would imagine that this will be added sometime in the future but just when is anybody's guess. Hokusai
  2. oliiix, You might want to rethink your post. Its wording is a little strong and it doesn't come across very well.
  3. Fixx's suggestion is great and if you want even more than that, then use the "History" palette.
  4. smilesmile, Hello and welcome to the forums. Lock/Unlock All and Hide/Show All were added more than a year ago. Are you by any chance using an older version of AD? Hokusai
  5. Cebbi, Hello and welcome to the forums. Have you tried leaving the "History Studio" showing (and in a place where you can easily access it)? That way you can click (or touch I would assume) to the point before you'd like to undo. I hope that helps. Hokusai
  6. pfbt, I'd say that the ability to change the ruler origin will be coming soon as it is already in Publisher. I wouldn't be surprised if they added it to the next release of Designer. Hokusai
  7. It wouldn't always be Acrobat, many, if not most, printers and service bureaus use software like PitStop or others that have give you more control over what you can change and edit with PDF files.
  8. rachmac, I would guess that Macro/Actions will be added to Designer sometime in the future seeing how it is already in Photo. I too think it would be a welcomed addition to Designer. Maybe version 2.0? Hokusai
  9. SrPx, No worries, I wasn't sure it was me you were referring to but it sounded like me. I have made some files with some heavy amounts of lines, objects, and nodes but I've never had any kind of a slowdown like the original poster is talking about (and my machine is nothing special in fact it is at the bottom of the list of machines that can run Designer). I have no idea what could be causing the slowdown but like @firstdefence said, a developer might be able to figure it out if they looked at the file. Hokusai
  10. firstdefence, I'm not sure if SrPx is talking about me or not? I do have some very node heavy illustrators, one with around 70,000 objects. I did my version of Don Quixote on an old iMac with only 4 gigs of RAM and I didn't have any problems at all. Here is the link:
  11. Uwe367, You're welcome. They have quite a few videos that really help to explain or show how some of the tools and features work. Hokusai

    Sarah, Hello and welcome to the forums. I'd like to help you but I'm confused about what you are asking. What is confusing me is, In the beginning you are struggling to make a document that shows the bleed are but then with your final pdf it shows the whole entire size of the page plus bleed. Isn't that what you want? It might help if you could explain what you would like in a different way. When you want to make the document show the bleed, do you mean you want to see it on screen or you want to see in in the pdf? If you want to see the bleed on screen go to View/View Mode/Clip to Canvas and it will show you things that are drawn off the canvas (like bleed). If you are talking about bleed in your exported PDF, then there is also a "more options" tab you can click on when you are exporting a PDF and it gives the choice to include bleed or not. I hope that helps. Also it is worth mentioning that Designer isn't supposed to be like Indesign, it is a vector app and not a page layout application. Affinity Publisher is a page layout application and it might be worth checking it out if you are doing a lot of work laying things out. Best of luck, Hokusai
  13. Uwe367, No worries, I hope that you are able to accomplish what you want with it. The Duplicate feature is very powerful, here is a link to a slightly older but still very useful video about it: Best regards, Hokusai
  14. Uwe367, When I need to do these kinds of things, I use the "Duplicate" (command J, on Mac) to do it. You might have to move the first copied one 15 degrees but then after that you can use duplicate and it will copy the shape and then paste it around in 15 degree increments. I hope that makes sense. Best regards, Hokusai
  15. oka, You are correct there is no vector eraser as of yet. This has been requested more than once before and I know that the developers are aware of it and if I remember Matt said that it was something that they intended to add sometime in a future release. I'd also like to see it added so hopefully it will be added sometime soon. Hokusai
