  1. Thanks for making that clear. What you call 'warping' a rectangle is actually shearing. I am with @GarryP that this is no proof that this function can easily be implemented. I think, though, they have the basics already implemented (e.g. look at the isometric panes). But it takes a lot more when it comes to mesh warp. What you already can do with vectors is to use APh's live filter 'Perspective'. It is not very intuitive and rather a workaround but it shows that they know how to do it. d.
  2. On what facts do you know that it is an easy feature to implement? d.
  3. I cannot deny this, especially in regard to frame text. OTOH, muscle memory is better if trained in different ways (but that is my way of thinking about it). ESC is not that universal that it works everywhere the same. I know that Serif is monitoring these forums and maybe they come to the conclusion that there is room for improvement. d.
  4. 'V' does that already. As to the OP's request to automatically switch to the move tool: You can hit ESC in a text frame and instantly move the text frame with the cursor keys. To continue editing text you click once in the text frame again. d.
  5. Sorry @COUYA, it is bad practice to start a new thread on a topic that was discussed in more than 30 pages and that is pinned at the top of this very forum so that no one can miss it. Even though I can understand that you are disappointed it is not a surprise because footnotes were not part of the last beta version. In the future I suggest (and kindly ask) to post in the respective thread, see here: Thanks. d.
  6. Hello @sveto, APub does not 'know' the concept of rotating pages. It is possible to rotate the view (in the view menu) but this does not help with x and y values. If you have Designer you can switch to the designer persona and turn a single page into an artboard. Then you can rotate the artboard by 90 degrees and the content rotates with it. d.
  7. Hello @Rob Luxford, thank you for sharing. Actually this is similar to how I worked on a CD sleeve project and it worked pretty good for me. The advantage to me is that I can always work in a visually correct vertical display and still check the entire design in its context. Cheers, d.
  8. Thanks Walt, I'm all for workarounds just as you are 🙂. And I think your suggestion is a good start. But: columns are not pages. They could be used as some kind of 'column guides' but the layout itself might need to be on seperate layers above. It very much depends on the final design, though. E.g. flowing text with headlines and pinned images could work that way. Multiple placed objects on different backgrounds would be harder to create that way. d.
  9. This is an interesting real world example why multiple page spreads would be very usefull. Thank you. d.
  10. Hi @pming, just to make this clear, I'm just a regular forum user just as you are. Maybe for a little longer time than you are 😉 Glad to see you found the right place for your contribution. d.
  11. Not to do this via an online service is a viable requirement for some files. I do understand this. You are not alone with the need to reuse old files that can not be accessed anymore. There have been some discussion about this here in the forum. Some users came to the conclusion that it can be most efficient to recreate old designs because convertion and fixing things afterwards turned out to be even more laborious. Good luck. d.
  12. Hello @RSI, welcome to the forums. I understand that it is inconvenient for you not being able to directly import 'old Coreldraw files'. But please take into account that it is not very likely that Affinity products would be able to read and translate any older Corel file format because they do work very differently. It would take a huge amount of time to program this properly and I'd rather see this time spent on features unique to AD. I suggest you investigate some kind of external conversion of your CDR files and then bring them into AD. PDF might be a good start to try and see if this transfers your old desgins well. There are several (free) online services that do this kind of conversion. E.g. Zamzar (https://www.zamzar.com/converters/image/cdr-to-pdf/). And in regard to the fact that you already bought AD, there is a refund policy if that is an option for you. d.
  13. Dear @pming, welcome to the forums. Please do all of us a favour and start a search before posting requests 🙂 BMP support is discussed extensively over there: Thank you. d.
  14. Hi @claidheamdanns, glad you found it by yourself 🙂 Thanks for the screenshot. d.
  15. Hello @zixdesign, well, I can't add anything about scripting. But at least I want to give you a warm welcome to the forum. Cheers! d.
  16. You are free to report it as a bug by yourself. I still consider it as by design. BTW, welcome to the forum @Webb123! d.
  17. Hello @JCarls, it may not be obvious but was communicated many times by Serif that the Affinity suite is not a complete replacement of the Plus range of software. It's rather a new start with new programming technology in the background. This includes a 'better choice' in regard to modern software and compatibility and OS support, but does not necessarily start with feature parity. I consider this video tutorial quite detailed and understandable but I am not sure if this fits your requirements. Cheers, d.
  18. I understand. So you suggest to change the default keyboard shortcut. This is something that does make sense. ALT+space is indeed a not well known Windows shortcut. It must have been an oversight by Serif. Your suggestion then makes sense to me. Cheers, d.
  19. It has not been dropped. It was not implemented yet, just like many other features. I admit it is unclear if this will come at some time in the future 🙂 d.
  20. Hello @anto, you can do this by yourself. Go to 'Edit > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts'. There select from the dropdown 'Text' and scroll down the list until you see 'Insert > Spaces and Tabs > Non-Breaking Space'. d.
  21. Hello @VirginiaL. No. And it has been pointed out in this thread that it is not very likely that .indd files will be supported at all. d.
  22. Hi @Pyanepsion, look under 'Preferences / User Interface' and uncheck 'Show Text in points' and/or 'Show Lines in points'. This should solve your problem. d.
  23. Hello @dwago and welcome to the forum. Since you are new here I want to point you to a thread on Linux that lasted 53 pages of discussion and most likely covers everything that can be said on the topic for now. The thread was closed by a moderator but is open to like the last post to show support for the request. See here: Cheers, d.
  24. Definetly I did not. Sorry if I wrote unclear. My intention here was to add my perspective to your point and the OP's question. d.
