  1. It already is. This suggestion is to add it to the new screen so the welcome screen stays relevant after the first month of usage and isn't just disabled outright (plus if it's disabled you have to go to the File tab and then under recents to open the recent files, and there's no thumbnails. Sounds like this would be a major improvement)
  2. I think you mean "make a linux version". a "linux distro" refers to a linux distribution, and it's the ubuntu's and arch's of the world. they don't need to make a separate distro, just make the app compatible with ubuntu or something and people can repackage it then to work for different distros
  3. depends on the definition of working, but the OP of this topic did get it to a state where they could create a new document and work on it. Doesn't mean it's in a fully working state, but it's still in a state where you might be able to test pressure sensitivity.
  4. That is also true. the browser render is the colour accurate one.
  5. I've got this svg file I saved from https://designs.ai/graphicmaker/illustration/243-public-transport-bicycle (I attached my saved file) that, when I try to open it in Affinity I'll get a "The file type not supported" error, even though it shows up fine when loaded in a browser. I've used the png option to export from said website instead but now having the svg option would really help in a larger scale usage. Can someone look into this? bike illustration.svg
  6. No one would take a WINE app over a native app, but affinity won't make the app nor do they seem open to ironing out the wine incompatibilities, so the logical solution is to ask the other side, WINE, to do it. Also you're just reiterating the same points that have been raised in the past pages. Have a read through the thread before repeating points. For starters, Serif has said they are against kickstarters, so by extension they are against sponsorships.
  7. Where are you getting your stats from? Do they also include servers that use linux and android phones? https://gs.statcounter.com/os-market-share This website states that in the last month the total user base on linux is 0.78% That is incredibly small. I'm not against you, but focusing on the user base count is a poor choice when discussing this in my opinion, since the ratio of creative user per capita is most probably higher on linux than on windows anyway, unsure about mac since macs are still the industry standard in design studios.
  8. A couple of options: A) The most realistic approach, wait for Wine or D9VK to implement the API functions that are needed to run Affinity on linux (Afaik we're pretty close, as the app can be opened, though the making of new documents and the like is still quite finicky) B) The least realistic approach, ask Serif to use alternate APIs that are already compatible either directly or via a compatibility layer on linux.
  9. A lot of people use google fonts in their designs, a popular app for that is FontBase, which also has a linux version. Now I'm not saying they're the only way to get google fonts on linux, nor the main way, but if the statistics do in fact relate to linux users, then it would also imply linux is a big user of fonts
  10. https://fonts.google.com/analytics Slightly unrelated analytics, but look at the Operating Systems part.
  11. But display purposes are not use purposes. There is no excuse to not displaying embedded fonts properly. It's up to the user to solve their licensing, not the app. If the fonts are embedded they're there for a reason, the app shouldn't decide whether or not I have the right to see the font.
  12. It's been brought up before, 500 000 was an estimate for 2014, that amount would have raised considerably by now (we didn't get a number anymore, probably because it's not a cost issue anymore, it's a dev availability issue)
