  1. Apart from this many detailed information very understandably presented, your post shows to me how much is going on behind the scenes. It must be a 'sack full of fleas' to keep track of all of that Thanks just for that. And everything else, too. d.
  2. Here certain actions of AD and APh (e.g. startup) take noticable longer because I have a couple of external USB harddrives connected to my notebook. This is due to the fact that sometimes they have to spin up from 'sleep mode'. I know about this and do not think it is Affinity's fault. But it took a while to find out the connection between the two issues and at first I thought it was a problem on AD's or APh's side. d.
  3. Good to hear You are welcome. d.
  4. A layer can be something like a group, too. A container. Try to select every curve within the layer (SHIFT+click the top most and the lowest and all are selected in one go). Then move them above the layer called 'layer'. This makes all of them seperate elements and you can try the rubber band thing I described above. Cheers, d.
  5. I may be wrong, but you set the colour space in the document setup. This affects all colours in the document. d.
  6. Hi @SigsCreations, I do not have only limited experience with commercial vector clipart that comes as an EPS. Even though I do use commercial clipart in other formats. To me it sounds like the objects in the EPS file are grouped or even nested in groups. Try the following: Click once on the imported design. Select menu 'Layer > Ungroup' or 'Layer > Ungroup All' Now try to 'rubber band' (= drag with the mouse button held down) around one of the designs. I assume you then can select this particular group of objects. Perhaps I am completely wrong. Otherwise I hope this is of help for you. Cheers, d.
  7. I did't. But I 'multi-hold' my thumbs d.
  8. Hi @Fatih19, as I said, there are many different users with different expectations. Just like you and me. I consider especially this section of the forum as a 'worldwide congress of exchange of ideas' But we'll have to wait and see what Serif is going to make out of it. All the best, d.
  9. Quite honestly, I don't want to see AD being 'bent' into any of that direction. Keep it what it is and make that (more than) good. I left behind Xara Designer (with a sigh) when they added more and more non vector related features. Everyone's mileage may vary.... d.
  10. APh has its Info panel that displays color information. I think this could be enhanced and brought over to AD to do exactly what you describe. I just do not know if this can be done easily, even though it seems so to a non programming user d.
  11. Hello @Kristof, as @MEB already stated in another thread there is currently no plans for a web design application at Serif. But there are already many web design applications for (in part) non designers. Web design is a completely different thing than graphic design and even page layout. A simple HTML-export won't do. And from my experience you can't design for the web without knowing at least the basics of code. To name just one example of many I want to suggest to look into CoffeeCup Software's 'Responsive Site Designer'. Maybe this is a starting point for you? d.
  12. Firstly, I assume that once you know the dimensions of your image they don't change. So I assume it is not a process of constantly displaying the image's dimension. I want to suggest two more ways to look up the image dimensions: Press ALT+CTRL+i. This brings up the dialog 'Resize Document'. This displays the dimensions in pixels and you can change it to different units. Hit ESC and you will leave the dialog box without changing anything. Press m (to activate the 'Rectangular Marquee Tool') and then CTRL+a. This selects the entire image and you can read it's dimensions in the transform panel. This works in most cases also with the 'Arrow Tool' (v). To deselect everything press CTRL+d. Both methods are a quick way to check the image's size. @Dan C the 'h' key seems to be the quickest way right now. I agree, it would be nice to have a constant read out e.g. in the Info Panel d.
  13. Hello @Pioof, thanks for chiming in, even as a non AD user. From a long discussion about pens and pressure profiles not so lang ago (there was a problem with certain drivers) I know that there are many users who would miss 'rotate canvas' and 'pressure profiles' a lot The goal for Affinity's programmers is to balance all the different use types. This inevitably leads to missing features all over the place and all we can do is wait until they are available. And to post and vote in this section of the forum to make a point I do not mind to find and use a workaround if a feature is not there. But in regard to 'select same' it is hard to find one. Except for using 'non-AI' (which is not Adobe Illustrator but 'non-artificial-intelligence'. In other words, me, doing it manually ) And there are scenarios with a huge amount of 'same to select' where a manual approach is not possible. For those cases I still keep my old CS6 around and don't mind using Illustrator to get the job done. After all, I once paid for it so why not using it? I am sure Serif will come up with something clever for 'select same' that perhaps even offers a 'find and replace' functionality. Who knows? Cheers, d.
  14. Oh my. I should have written 'currently there is no new Beta'. After all, I assume many of us are looking forward to the next Beta d.
  15. I didn't notic that it is possible to answer to this thread, so I didn't post after my vote yesterday Well deserved! I hold my thumbs. d.
