  1. Yes, thank you. Before I only turned windows Update on and that did not help. but after you asked again, I also turned Windows Module Installer and that worked. After that I turned both off (having them on causes some problems on my system) but I was able to update Designer and it is working.
  2. Tried to upgrade Affinity Designer from 1.6.5.135 under Windows 10 to 1.7.0. It tried to install .net, which failed saying a parameter was wrong (did not say which parameter). It wouldn’t even bother me that much if the old Designer stopped popping up the message asking me if I want to download the upgrade. So, what now?
  3. OK, thanks, it was the Modules Installer. With it enbaled, I was able install .net 4.8, and then Designer 1.7.0. Thanks, everyone.
  4. I guess I’ll just have to stick with Designer 1.6. I just wish there was a way to turn off the upgrade notifications.
  5. That’s what it said. I just copied and pasted the whole thing.

  7. OK, I tried to install .net 4.7.2 manually. That failed, too. It opened the following in my web browser: OS Version = 10.0.14393, SP = 0.0, Platform 2 OS Description = Future OS - x64 MSI = 5.0.14393.576 Windows servicing = 10.0.14393.0 CommandLine = D:\72cf8c361efa54f2901a69\\Setup.exe /x86 /x64 /redist TimeZone = Central Daylight Time Initial LCID = 1033 Using Simultaneous Download and Install mechanism Operation: Installing Package Name = Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 Setup Package Version = 4.7.03081 User Experience Data Collection Policy: Disabled Number of applicable items: 6 Exe (D:\72cf8c361efa54f2901a69\SetupUtility.exe) succeeded.

  9. This is so frustrating. When I create a new document, AD insists on managing my colors. Why? Why, why, why?! My monitor is properly calibrated and the system (Windows 10) driver manages the colors. But AD thinks I want it to manage the colors, too. So, after carefully choosing the right look, and exporting the image to SVG or other format, the result looks disastrous. Why is AD doing this? And how do I turn it off? There seems to be no way to turn it off. There is a myriad of options for a profile, but there is no do nothing option.
  10. My SVG viewer? I always view my SVG files in several viewers, including two different web browsers as well as opening the SVG in Affinity Designer. All I am asking is how do I turn your color management off. Just put the same colors into the SVG file that I have chosen for the .afdesign file.

    Typeface design (WIP)

    Ahoj, Miloš. Take a look at FontForge, which works on all current operating systems.

    I actually like the lack of details in this image. It adds to the dark mystery and sneakiness of what it portrays. It came, it abducted, it vanished. Bam! Not enough time for anyone to notice any details. Well done, tro!

    While Beta testing the Windows AD and trying to learn what it can do, I used it to design a font. This image shows some of the font: And here is the address where you can view/download the font if you so desire.

    Just to keep you updated, I have added many new symbols and have just uploaded the new version (1.0.3) at the same address.

    Yes, thank you, they were very useful, as were many other tools. For example, the shape assigned to the letter P started off as a simple square. I then placed a large vertically centered circle to the left of the center of the square. I duplicated the circle and placed the duplicate same distance to the right of the center. I selected all three shapes and had AD subtract the circles from the square. That gave me the vertical beam of the design. All I had to do next was duplicate the vertical beam, rotate it 90° and add the result to the vertical beam. The shape assigned to the letter e used the same technique, except I started with a circle instead of a square. It took me a while to figure out how to create the shape assigned to the letter T. It finally occurred to me that I had to start with two partially overlapping vertically aligned circles, add them to one path and then continue with the same technique mentioned above. AD makes it all so simple!
  16. I created a simple text to test whether, upon SVG export, the text is converted to curves as requested (it does, thanks) and I assigned it a radial color gradient. I chose the SVG for web preset. The text consisted of just three characters and an exclamation point (see Aha!.afdesign ). It converted it properly to four separate paths. It, however, created four separate SVG radialGradients, one for each of the characters. All four were identical. There should only have been one radialGradient, which should have the been assigned to each path. Here is the SVG it created: Aha!.svg
  17. I have noticed that when I open/import an SVG image, in the layers list, where it lists all the objects, it says (Curve) to the right of polygon objects. This, while not a major issue, is inexact. A polygon is not a curve. A polygon is a geometric figure completely defined by a set of points connected by straight lines. Adam

    That has no relevance for this. This thread is about a polygon in an SVG file opened in AD, a file which has a polygon (actually many of them) drawn using the SVG polygon element, which, as its official definition says, “defines a closed shape consisting of a set of connected straight line segments.” When opened in AD, all those polygons show as curves, not as polygons, as clearly illustrated in the enclosed screen cap. Why is it that every time someone reports some issue with the Beta on this forum, it is like having a tooth pulled? People start jumping at him, quoting all kinds of straw men, trying to prove him wrong. Why? We are volunteering our time and resources to Beta test a product someone else will make a ton of money on, yet we are treated as we were a stupid bunch of nincompoops. Adam

    Except it doesn’t. It says curve.

    Well, English isn’t my native tongue. But in my own language I was always taught there were straight lines and there were curved lines. So, a curve is a special kind of line, but a line, let alone a straight line, is not a special kind of curve. Anyway, as I said, this is not a major issue to me, so I have no interest in getting into a debate here.

    Why? Dictionary.com says a curve is “a continuously bending line, without angles.” Polygons consist of straight lines with angles. As NFG suggested, calling them paths would make more sense. Though I would just call them polygons. B)
