  1. I wish that one could drag an item to a layer from the pasteboard (if that's the right word) as you can in CorelDRAW. That is so useful!
  2. Ooo, that's kind of a good workaround! Thanks a so much. Phil
  3. Presumably to let the developers know that there's more interest in it? Seems pretty straight forward to me!
  4. Hi everyone, I really love Affinity Designer and want to stick with it and will! It works really well but it has some really important (to me) features missing. I have used CorelDRAW for a very long time but it is definitely bloated and slow at this point. I guess it is still based on some sort of old technology. Anyway, something I really like in Corel draw is the ability to have angled guides. You drag a guide onto the pasteboard just the same as Affinity and then as you can see at the top left of the screen grab I'm attaching, you get the option to change the angle. In fact, guides are added to a new layer which is, by default, set not print. This means you can lock the guides layer, move it up and down in the stack of layers et cetera. This is so useful in so many situations. Is this something Serif might consider adding to designer? Thanks. What do others think?
  5. A good point well put!
  6. Right but the one the Serif used to have in Drawplus worked really well and I don't really want to have to get out of the pond I'm in and drag the design to another pond every time I want to get to this 'bigger fish'. There is value in having functionality within the program one is using.
  7. I don't understand why this isn't a feature. I used it in DrawPlus for years and it worked well. Is Serif just not cannibalising any of its old technology on principle? Seems like an obvious thing to do to me!
  8. Thanks so much. I can't believe I missed this. I was looking under the window menu because that's where it is in CorelDraw. Anyway, please ignore my foolishness! Also, thanks again. Phil
  9. Oops. Sorry. Designer and Windows 10. I know I can on Photo but it seems equally or even more important on Designer. Thanks, Phil
  10. Can I reproduce my design on a second monitor so I can be zoomed in on the design on one monitor and view the whole design on the other? I can't seem to find a way to do that. Thanks! Phil
  11. Yep. That was it. Reopened Photo and all is good. Thanks for the help anyway. Phil
  12. They're both from the Affinity store though I did notice that, within my account it is still offering to sell me Photo suggesting it doesn't recognise that I already bought it. I need to contact them about that. Anyway, it was a piece of text I sent to photo, erased a bit of it just as a test and it is that I want to send back could that be relevant? Oh! Hang on, I just installed Designer and Photo was already open. I bet I need to just shut down and restart Photo, right? Duh! Out at the doctor's right now but I'll try that when I get home and report back.
  13. Thanks for the quick response. I didn't see that in the File menu but I do now but it's greyed out. Why might that be? Thanks again for the help! Phil
  14. Hi all, Can anyone help? I just bought Designer to go with Photo. I create something in Designer and go File>Edit in Photo. Make changes in Photo but cannot, for the life of me, work out how to return it back to Designer. How do I do that? Seems like it must be easy! Thanks! Phil
