  1. @wonderings and @walt.farrell I think the need or want has been established by people requesting it here. The fax machine gets the letter across, why use email? (I am sure someone is going to make the argument for faxes after this ) If you research a bit you can find information to get to know this (new) technology and what it can be used for and is being used for (not just web by the way, otherwise no one would have requested it here šŸ˜‰). https://fonts.google.com/knowledge/introducing_type/introducing_variable_fonts There have been other sources of information also posted before in this thread, that can be looked at, if the want to know why variable fonts are being used is real. For example this one: https://v-fonts.com mentioned by @fde101 Just go there please, play with some of the sliders in one of the examples and if that doesn't show you what variable fonts are about and why this kind of control might be good for design work of any kind online or offline...
  2. Love your post Bryan! Very insightful and perfectly explained. Transparency in software development is a must, haters or no haters. Of course the transparency does not have to be absolute, but a brand has to communicate it's vision to keep people engaged. It will enstill trust and keep people in, when they know feature x is around the corner or might be there by the end of Q4 2022. But not knowing compounds uncertainty.
  3. Yes, I agree. Maybe giving an estimated Q1 - 4 would be enough. I also do not have the time to go treasure hunting for features.
  4. I wanted to ask if you will make demo videos again of upcoming big features for any of the programs?Or if there is a way to know what Serif is working on from a more big picture perspective? I'd really like some more communication about Serif's direction and vision. Thank you very much!

  6. Rather be sensitive than jaded. Rather do other stuff than write in internet forums... Oh my, the contradictions... Also there are hyperboles. The lack of the option of "no" means that the thread is not for people like you who thrive on "no". Trolling is that "no I disagree and like diminishing stuff and am so smart" attitude. You have contributed nothing, just given your opinion that my idea is bad. Wow, how hard it is to find other people's ideas bad and criticize... That was meant sarcastically or ironically, just to make sure... Neither am I coaching a team nor do I not have skin in the game. You know nothing about me, do you?
  7. Forum communication, welcome to the best way to loose hope in humanity. Lets work backwards: rodsal23: No, the affinity team is not lazy. They made 3 good apps. dotails: Sounds interesting. wonderings: Go Troll somewhere else please. If I had the money I would do that. Grauzorn: Who said it has to be 55 bucks? Blender and Resolve have Raster output only (Freestyle is one vectorgraphic per frame so not really viable). Ad-Man-Gamer: Just signed up to troll on my humble post? I am flattered. You are like one of these people who say: ā€žIā€™m not a racist, buuuuuuut all this foreigners...ā€œ, just with condescension and not racism.
  8. @Patrick Connor I have found more interesting software being made that you guys could absorb: VGC Animation: https://www.vgc.io/ | vgc/vgc: Next-Gen Graphic Design and 2D Animation (github.com) enve: enve | Open-source 2D animation software (maurycyliebner.github.io) | MaurycyLiebner/enve: Flexible, user expandable 2D animation software for Linux and Windows. (github.com)
  9. @Alfred He also said: "... Not saying there won't be an Affinity product which does animation one day..." and it was 2014 that that was posted. Please vote and give the first post a like if you as a customer would like this feature or program. Thank you very much!
  10. Hey guys, what's up? I just did a quick search and noticed that an animation feature of some kind has been requested many times before and I have an idea, although I am not convinced it is the best idea here it is: When researching for an SVG animator I came across an app that has been highly praised by people on some site I landed on and I would like you to consider buying that company and then building a Windows version of it. It fits as you guys also started out with your MAC verions and then the feedback was overwhelming and the user base of Windows is overwhelming and so you built the Win versions also. So you have experience in that and the program is already finished in so many ways, meaning you don't have to start from scratch and you would gain a developer who obviously knows what they are doing. Keyshape - Create animated vector graphics (keyshapeapp.com) If you don't like this idea, please make a program or a Persona in Designer to add this functionality, so this here is the plan B sentence, so that people who don't like my idea above can still vote on this gerneal feature request. And it fits into your whole stealing earning Adobe customers thing as you would offer a replacement for an app that is a huge USP for Adobe right now: Adobe Animate (and AE). So what do you think Serif Code Makers?
  11. Hey @Mark Robinson, you have great software for that, but you have to be willing to learn. 3D is it's own whole field and you can expect a steeper learning curve. You cannot compare 2D to 3D. It's apples and cogs. Here the program you should look into as a maker: FreeCAD: Your own 3D parametric modeler (freecadweb.org) And here if you want to do 3D Animation: blender.org - Home of the Blender project - Free and Open 3D Creation Software In my opinion Affinity Suite should remain 2D and keep on making those alternatives to Adobes programs (of course there are some 3D features in them too...).
  12. The same keeps happening to me since 1.8.5. This is a major stability issue and costs me a lot of time. This should be fixed with priority.
  13. I am still having this issue... This makes efficient work near impossible. Why is there no fix still in 1.8.5.703? When I try adding new formats in the slices window it very often just crashes. Sometimes it comes back once after waiting 20 seconds, but then it always crashes for good.
  14. More than a year has passed, Google Fonts now supports variable fonts. It is time Serif team @Dave Harris.
  15. The solution you referenced to didn't work, but it got me on the right path. I ended up changing in contrast to what the thread said the nVIDIA settings to manage the colors and balanced the colors and then also reset and re-set my screens settings. That finally did the trick. My windows color settings were still default. The graphics card seemed to be the problem. Now the colors are still slightly different but it is hardly noticeable. Thank you Gabe for setting the right path.
  16. Hi, see attached the problem in another trial with included affinity file. Unbenannt.afdesign
  17. Please someone help! Did anybody have the same issue as this:
  18. Hi, see attached the color difference of the file in the program and exported as jpg with JPEG high quality settings. Also see the second attachement for my colors settings, they are in german but I think you find the values. Thanks for any help in advance!
  19. Any news on this? I was pondering of buying such a laptop but with this report on bad performance...
  20. I thought all Programs will go to 1.7 and Publisher starting off from that Version?
  21. Dear Affinity Team, thanks for continued provision of excellent and affordable graphics design software!
  22. Thanks @>|<(how do you pronouce that?? ) and @Ben, I look very much forward to "real" circles @Ben! Would you also consider doing something like circle segments (137.5 deg of a circle for example)? And if you go into that, what would help me very very much is: If you could then use the segments and snap other segments with different angles to the original segment and have a smooth curve by eventually combining them.
