  2. You are wrong. The bug still happen. Try to export the file with embedded art to PDF/X1a and open it in any PDF reader and you will see only bitmaps.
  3. Chris_K, I am using Beta, and it still rendering as BITMAP at export to PDF/X1a. Please, try to open the "card with embedded vectors file.afdesign" and export it as PDF/X1a, and open on any PDF reader. This is really a BUG of Affinity Designer.
  4. This customer beta have the SAME BUG of all versions. If I copy/paste a style, this replaces values different than the source. This error does not occur in Adobe Photoshop. Please, see the attached file and follow the history inside them. The small object was the source of style. It have a 3D Layer effect with radius of 15 pixels. Then, I select it and copy it and select the medium object and do Edit/Paste FX. Now, 3D Layer effect radius of medium object is not the same as the small object source, but is 27,9px. I repeat this procedure to Large Object, and the 3D Layer radius is 44.4px. This strange behavior occur with almost all effects, such as shadows, bevel/emboss, etc. This is not the first time I've reported this bug. I keep thinking here ... How long will the SERIF staff keep this BUG uncorrected? BUG Copy-Paste Effects does not preserve original values.afdesign
  5. Hello, Guys at SERIF. I have some bad experiences with Affinity Designer. When I embed a pure Affinity Designer vector file in a new project, Affinity rasterizes it in bitmap when exporting to PDF X1a This does not happen when I copy and paste an art from one project to another. Please review the 5 attached files and make the findings. Please, guys, File / Place is fine, but I'd like it if there was File / Link also card without embedded vectors file.afdesign card without embedded vectors file.pdf ASD Concret.afdesign card with embedded vectors file.afdesign card with embedded vectors file.pdf
  6. Hello, guys at Serif. For example, every time I resize a photo, I'd rather use Lanczos 3 non separable. But Affinity defaults to bilinear every time I do Ctrl+Alt+I. This is frustrating and tedious. I cited this case as an example, only. There are many things in which the program could memorize the user's way of being. Make the program smarter. The default for Artistic text tool is Arial 12 align left. Always and always and always... This is horrible. The program need to memorize my last use of each tool! What I do in Photoshop in a few clicks, or in a single click, I need to do in Affinity with many clicks. This is frustrating, irritating, tedious ... The Edit / Preferences menu has few options. This is very poor in options for the user. There could be many more options like default font preference when using the artistic text tool tool, choose my preferred export preset, etc, etc, etc. There is a need to extend user preference options at least 10 times. I already posted this on another topic, but no one paid attention! Another thing I've been reporting for a long time, the error of copying / pasting effects giving different values to the target. How long this will continue? Please, Affinity team, stop making deaf ears. Pay attention to the needs of your customers, at least this time.
  7. Hello, guys at Serif. First of all, congratulations on the fantastic Photo and Designer programs. But I would very much like you to join the two in one program. There are things that one has and the other does not, and we have to stay all the time changing between one and the other to solve things. This is frustrating! Serif could continue to sell the separate versions and a single version. What about? You have hit the full functionality of the programs. I completely stopped using Photoshop and Illustrator. I'd like you guys to do something for composing videos and creating websites. Have you thought about that? A video composer with the layer effects of Affinity Designer would be unbeatable! My dream is to turn on the computer in the morning and open my mailbox and surprise me with the news: New Affinity products: AFFINITY SITE BUILDER and AFFINITY VIDEO COMPOSER Well, dreaming doesn't hurt, right?
  8. Hello, guys at Serif. I have a seroius problem opening EPS with Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo Affinity is unable to interpret some vectors with shadows without rasterize it to a flat bitmap. I've found this wonderful site, http://all-free-download.com/to download free vector graphics. All files are EPS, and Affinity have a problem opening EPS files! Please, see the 3 attached files for more details Floral Frame Beautiful.eps
  9. Hello, Serif people. I would like there to be the option of converting missing fonts into curves at the time of opening a file, such as PDF. PDF readers can display perfectly on the screen and print documents whose fonts are missing on the machine you view. PDF readers can do this because the font is embedded in the file. So, I think Affinity (Photo and Designer) could do the same process that these pdf readers do. Lately, I've been using PDF reader "PDF-X CHANGE EDITOR" So I print to PDF with the option of converting fonts into curves. However, the result is poorly rendered text. Please Serif people. Help Us!
  10. Hello, guys at Serif. I have found the root of all problems with export to PDF. Please, open the attached file, export it to PDF, open the exported PDFs with Affinity Designer and verify the layers panel. Some (or all) gradient fill curves was rasterised. AD have a BUG. if a linear gradient have more than 2 colors, and if mid point is not exactly 50%. AD will rasterise it at export to PDF. Please, Serif guys. Correct it! Gradients in Affinity Designer.afdesign
  11. I think I found the root of the problem. Please open the attached document for more information. Indeed, Affinity Designer has disappointed me! Gradients in Affinity Designer.afdesign
  12. Illustrator exports the PDF in this way. The gradient does not lie in the object, but in a rectangle, and it uses the object as a mask. It does not matter if the gradient is in the object or in a masked rectangle. Affinity will rasterize everything in bitmap!
  13. The issues are in the attached documents. Open the .afdesign document and try to export to pdf yourself. Count the minutes. Open the rendered .pdf generated by Affinity. Compare it with the PDF generated by Illustrator. Quality and file sizes. Until when?

  14. I checked that. There it says 6 digits after the decimal point. But in practice it only works with 3. If it is possible to do it to the correct way, then why is the program come default with the worst possible option?
  15. Hello, Serif guys. There is a big problem with Affinity. It only allows you to create a new guide by dragging from the ruler with the move tool (V) only. Other programs allow you to drag a new guide from the ruler with any tool selected. Another problem is that Affinity uses only one decimal place after the point, and this is too inaccurate to create a new guide from the exact location where a node is. For example, the node is at x = 159.8731654127mm, but Affinity rounds the value to 159.9mm. Please, make it use the complete floating value and use the rounded just for display. If I select a node with the node tool, there is no way to create a guide exactly where the node is. Other programs allow you to do this. I'd love it if there was a way to right-click on a node and choose in a popup menu: Create a horizintal guide in the position of this node Create a vertical guide in the position of this node Create horizontal and vertical guides in the position of this node Please, don't take too long to answer my requests, my work depends on it.
