  1. Ooooh, it looks like setting the Page Box actually changes the embedded document canvas to match the content size, not just on the Container document. I.e. this does what I wanted from the start. Designer_tQnu8qwUzl.mp4
  2. @walt.farrell Sorry for the delayed reply. In your last step, is the embedded document's bounding box not still the same dimensions? For me it is. I was expecting the bounding box to shrink to match the contents like it does for non embedded documents. Setting the Page Box to Minimum or Maximum Content results in this after performing the previous steps, which looks like it could be another bug: However, it seems to work if the embedded document is left unchanged:
  3. @walt.farrell I'm using an Affinity Designer file for the embedded file (example attached) Container.afdesign To embed.afdesign @Old Bruce Yep, I'm using the Selection choice. Perhaps it's Windows specific. Also occurs in the latest 1.10 Beta. Embedded edit behaviour screen capture: Embedded behaviour.mp4 Non embedded / expected behaviour screen capture: Normal behaviour.mp4
  4. I would like a button somewhere that allows you to set the document/canvas size to fit the contents. A workaround is to select everything, insert an Artboard based on the selection and then delete the Artboard while keeping the contents. However, this trick doesn't work in embedded documents.
  5. Broken for me when uploading 1.1 MB MP4 file Alternates between error 7 and unable to render the file format when uploaded
  6. Affinity Publisher and Visio allow creating text on any shape without converting the shape to a text box. This allows the shape's fill, stroke etc. to be changed while keeping the text (and formatting) associated with it as a single object. Looks like the forum's media uploader is broken at the moment so external link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1z29My7P08jgEiAnriVN6NOK5VsrXxUxE/view https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/tutorials/publisher/desktop/video/337299876/ This would be extremely useful in Designer for creating UI elements such as buttons. Instead of having a group consisting of both a shape and text, it can be a single object with directly editable text. In Designer, as soon as I insert text onto/into a shape, the shape is converted to a text box without any fill or border properties.
  7. I have the shortcuts on my taskbar and hate it when a program adds desktop shortcuts without asking first.
  8. Re-adding this as it's still not implemented and seems the most logical approach. I imagine the majority of users wouldn't want to nudge by pixels when their document is set to millimetres, or nudge by mm when their document is in inches. At the moment the nudge distance is absolute/fixed, why not give an option to make it relative to the document units. Existing: Suggested:
  9. Unfortunately, it doesn't produce as good of a result when compared to PS and requires lots of messing around to get it close when dealing with complex cut-outs.
  10. This is the only thing for me that keeps me using my old version of Photoshop. It's so simple to use the magic wand tool on a an image with clear edges to create a good cut-out in PS, but in AD it creates a horrible jaggy edge. I see that you already support anti-alias for the freehand selection, so I'm surprised it hasn't also been added to the magic wand tool. Or is it because it's the freehand selection creates a vector selection (while drawing) and therefore easier to anti-alias the edges vs. antialiasing a pixelated selection? Actual: Expected:
  11. = and + share the same key (ignoring numeric keypad which may not be present on all devices) on common keyboard layouts, with = being the default and + only working if shift is also pressed. Ctrl + = seems logical to me because it functions without the shift modifier. Ctrl + + could imply that the shift must also be pressed.
  12. Thanks MEB. I had forgotten that. As you say, not the same or as powerful as Illustraor's isolation mode, but somewhat useful nevertheless.
  13. I would like a mode where you can open a group or other container and edit these in isolation where all mouse and keyboard events stay within the group. For example Ctrl + A selects everything in the isolated container and not the other parts of the document, clicking and dragging (for selecting multiple objects) outside of the container doesn't cancel the container edit mode etc. When in this mode the other objects in the artboard/document should become more translucent/faded to indicate they are not being edited. The following video shows entering the isolation mode by double clicking in Illustrator and this is what I would like: https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/illustrator/using/selecting-objects.html https://www.webucator.com/how-to/how-use-isolation-mode-adobe-illustrator.cfm
