  1. Unfortunately no, I restarted several times and just comes back. I'm using the beta now, and no problems there so far.
  2. Is there a way to get keyboard shortcuts working again without reinstalling?
  3. Yes I am using the Guides Manager. I like the numerical table because I can confirm the placement... I can pull out from rulers, but it doesn't always show me the tool tip showing the numeric position which is why I started using the Guides mgr. Snapping can be a little unpredictable at times too and it is difficult to get to trigger the way I need. I have to open the Guides mgr to confirm the position numerically. Probably another way would be to create a set of blocks and arrange them in the grid and then "snap" the grid that way and then snap the guides in that way... I may start doing it that way. It's good too if you want the columns to show up in another layer for example... I think the Guides Manager would be efficient on it's own, but it needs to allow you to effect the default placement of a new guide in some way so it doesn't always begin at the center point... or at least allow the new guide to appear near where your cursor is (whatever the value)... though that is very useful on it's own that it calculate center values for you. Guides mgr also will take mathematical adjustments, which is nice... I create the column I want and the gaps and I just punch in +(number) and it creates the guide in that placement... there doesn't appear to be a way to select the guide and change it's placement without using the dialog box?
  4. Is there a reason the guide defaults to the center of the graphic? And can this be changed? It is problematic when creating a grid system, because means I have to scroll to see the last value before I punch in the new value... and it's time consuming (and clunky) to do this action over and over... The correct way I think would to create the guideline near where you have a selected value... so say I select a guide that exists @ 1.2in... It would create a duplicate of that value when I hit new.

    Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview

    Honestly, I've never really liked working in iD for whatever reason, has always felt a bit clunky... and would just be glad to have alternatives to it.
  6. Yeah I just realized recently this program doesn't have the ability to create vector-based pattern swatches? The little things right?... it's a pretty important function though and one of those small features we often take for granted. Considering how long PS/AI have been in the game though, it's going to take a while for all our favorite features of those projects to make it to these programs... I think just keep suggesting and eventually they'll make it into the list.
  7. Can you guys include this feature in Photo/Designer on the Windows version? I use floating windows for things like Views when working at different zooms, on screens with differing resolutions, etc... it is really essential to my workflow. They take up an unexpected amount of space often because they do not adjust to the size of the document when zooming further out, and so I have to adjust manually which can't be done easily to precision... so an option like in photoshop to automatically adjust the window size on zoom would be very nice...

    Affinity Designer Customer Beta -

    By the way, I like the new installer. Very nice. It's clear now we are updating... whereas before, it just looked like a basic install.

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta -

    Installing now... thanks
  10. Yeah that ain't happening! haha I love that feature on Mac! I don't know why more Windows apps don't allow this.
  11. This would be a great feature for Affinity Photo and set it apart from Photoshop in Windows... a feature where we can turn off the background in the interface, just having floating tool bars and image windows... would help to connect workspace with desktop... this was my favorite feature on Mac and would love to have it on the Windows version of Affinity Photo.

  13. Discovered this today. That's a pretty significant shortcoming.
