  1. Thank you RCR ... This is more than my question was about. Thank you for your response though
  2. That's exactly what I mean Walt. Thank you. I had a big file I was working on today. In the end I had to copy the groups etc and paste them into AD 1 again. Now I can work on them easily. Affinity? What were you thinking of?
  3. Recently updated to Affinity Designer 2 and I love it except for one thing. It's very difficult to identify groups now and groups within groups now (which I have a lot of). This was so clear in Affinity Design 1. Could groups not be made bolder making them easier to identify? Have pasted 2 images to show the difference between the two.
  4. Confused here. Affinity help shows this. https://affinity.help/photo/en-US.lproj/index.html?page=pages/LiquifyPersona/liquify_panelMesh.html?title=Mesh panel Where is this mesh panel? Anyone know? Thank you
  5. Thanks Walt. unfortunately that won't work for me at all. My documents are usually 17.25in x 8.75in and I'd lose most of the page. Perhaps this is something Affinity could add to Publisher. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to see one spread at a time.
  6. Thanks for your reply, but I was referring to when I'm working on the document.
  7. After a few days of using Publisher beta I'm finding some things a little frustrating. One main thing is that I'm unable to view a single page without the previous and next pages showing above and below it - see attached file. Is there any way to do this? Single Page View.afpub
  8. Unfortunately the APhoto method converts my vectors to pixels and I don't want that. My option is now to 'painstakingly manipulate each letter'
  9. Thanks for your reply v_kyr. I did actually try that and although it looks better it's not quite the result I want. I would ideally like the text to 'mould to the shape', if you know what I mean.
  10. Hi, Does anyone have any idea how to fit text to a banner so that it looks nicer than the example I've attached? I need it to fit between the red lines. Banner.afdesign
  11. Thanks for the information Patrick - this is good to know. Unfortunately, I don't have time to test this beta at the moment as I'm busy illustrating a book and can't risk losing anything. I look forward to 1.8.0 being released.
  12. Thank you Joachim ... not sure how that happened or while the opacity can be set from the effects panel. All sorted now though.
  13. Hi all, The attached file shows a recurring problem, which is: I was tracing over an image and so set the opacity low so that I could see what I was tracing over. When I had finished, I removed the opacity on the slider so that it was 100%, but nothing happened, the opacity remained. Copying and pasting to the same and a new document did not work, neither did opening it on another machine - both Windows and Mac. There is no gradient or transparency set, all opacity sliders are set to 100% and no matter what colour I select, going from transparent to deepest black, the opacity remains. The only solution was to retrace at 100%, which I did. Any ideas? Opacity.afdesign
  14. Thanks for your reply. I had a feeling that was the case. I'm working on illustrations that have blue backgrounds at the moment and the guides are almost impossible to see. Hopefully Affinity will take notice of this post.
  15. Is it going to be possible anytime soon to change the appearance of the guidelines? They can be very difficult to see at times and I can see no way to make them a little thicker or change their colour.
  16. Hi LyricsGirl. I am in the process of preparing a lot more of these from Drawplus and will post them when they're done. I'm not going to do all of them though.
