  1. Same here in 1.7 it doesn't make any sense text is unable to have fills/strokes added from Appearance panel Given that the stroke control has gone from the text properties bar its really unclear how to add a text stroke now
  2. in 1.7.1 the .appinfo files have moved to C:\ProgramData\Affinity\Common\1.0\appinfo\Release
  3. SOLVED @Chris B C:\ProgramData\Affinity\Common\1.0\appinfo\Release delete the .appinfo files there and redo the open and close of the newly installed Photo & Designer apps.
  4. I also cleared out my %AppData%/Affinity folder but it still broken going Photo -> Designer
  5. I agree but we need to find out what the actual mechanism it is using that is causing the specific problems - It's probably in the shared user space in AppData or Registry
  6. I have reinstalled everything even inputting product keys and rebooted and opened files in both and exited and the Edit in Designer in Photo is still greyed out (you can Edit in Photo) from Designer OK. I really need a solution for this beyond turn it on and off again. I look forward to support help.
  7. I have tried both opening and closing .afphoto and .afdesign files in both apps - the link from designer to photo now works but the link from photo to designer doesn't. Also had reboots etc. So will try a reinstall of photo as it seems to be the problem. It would help if I actually understood how this check works is it a specific file or a registry entry that its looking for as this would be the best way to fix it. From a usability standpoint this check is poorly implemented it should use the version in the registry to check if a compatible version is available.
  8. I have the same problem Windows 7.0 with versions of Designer & Photo both the same version and the Edit in X options are greyed out in both of them. This is really disappointing as the new release was meant to make this work correctly.
  9. I have an art board with a stack of 19 images all with sub-pixel heights & Y positions - I want to set an integral height of 102px and then butt all the images together so their Y are 102px increments from the First one which is on an integral Y position - creating a seamless stack down the artboard. Seems no may to do it except by hand and it takes ages (10+ minutes) to do one page of these and I have 30 artboards :// (5+ hours grind)

    Affinity designer on windows 10 freezing

    I have the same problem with a specific image heavy PDF file which had been sliced up - Latest beta with snapping off seems to work as expected when I tested it. I enabled snapping to see if its causing slow down still and it had no effect so for my problem file the beta is a big improvement.
  11. Yep They need to realise this. Trouble is over precision in it's behaving like a cad tool not a screen design tool. They definitely need a stabilizing release. It's not hard to implement you just need a round() on the X/Y in that mode. I'm going to start a list like Arya Stark 1 Pixel forcing on artboards 2 Nested constraints What else? ...These have to be major face palms that break workflow not niggles.
  12. Its October 2018 and that example constraints file @rubs is still badly broken. The worst part is that turning the constraints off/on on the blue circle buttons causes the white chevrons to vanish or remove the anchor on the chevrons and they resize tiny. I use a lot of different tools such as Figma and Sketch which have much more complex constraint models they had problems and have been significantly improved within 6 months. There is no point is launching features that don't work reliably and at worse corrupt data in a tool marketed at design professionals as these things have an actual $ cost to us in time fixing it. If you do a lets launch and fix strategy then you need to fix them if your customers report serious bugs. Not addressing this in a year is not effective product management. Even if it is broken (in certain arrangements) there should be some guidance in the help/forum as to what those might be, so they can be avoided. Which seems to be the case as taking the buttons & chevrons out of their group and they seem to work again. On a positive note @rubs has just provided you with a good acceptance criteria test for your constraints feature when it does get fixed.

    [AD] Opacity slider is wrong!!

    Thanks Walt - I didn't have the studio colour panel open and I now I can actually see the slider is linked but in my setup I didn't have the studio colour panel visible as it was behind the swatches which is where I normally pick colour from. Annoyingly the property bar fill panel resets to Colour from swatches to colour picker on every usage so I way well use the studio swatch and colour tools from now on. Now that you have pointed it out I can see the opacity but it is a mighty weird UX decision. Thanks for the help
