    Pixel Export Opaque Issue

    Nope. I never figured it out and had to resort back to Photoshop. That has happened a handful of times since this post but I am still using AD as my primary software if I can. Falling back to Photoshop when AD does something wonky. Sometimes I cannot post screenshots or files due to the nature of my work but I try to articulate as best I can as posts so that if others have the issue and search they can find my threads. That being said I think there are still a few quirks in AD that I have not been able to work around yet. Good luck working them out but if this one has been around since December of 2014 that's saying something.

    When Symbol Syncing Fails

    Great question! In my situations I am not turning off syncing. I am creating symbols with text that is already unsynced. Let's say font size is 12px and I want to move it to 13px. I cannot do that, consistently.

    R C-R's called it red, I am just trying to be consistent. I don't care what color it is I am concerned by when something is solid, dashed and what they mean. Yeah, I know what the docs say. There seems to be some inconsistencies here that R C-R is outlining well.

    Maybe I am missing a core principal here. What is the point of the dashed orange red line vs the solid orange red line?

    So can I get NEW text to replace the old text in a symbol that stays synced? I swear I am running into instances where immediately after I hit the Create Symbol button on a group of layers that include text, everything is solid orange but the text.

    It seems like any type form in a group that I create a symbol out of, the type automatically has the orange dashed line.

    Thanks guys. I am seriously tired of watching that video at this point though lol. I think I have seen in 10 times since it was made. On the contrary it's pretty easy to see what is synced and what isn't synced IMHO. Type happens to be what ends up with the dashed lines. Almost every time. I know it's not synced because it's always got a dashed line. I cannot get it to be a solid line. That's my gripe here.
  8. What do you do when you have a symbol that is a solid red line everywhere and no matter what you do with the sync button none of you changes start syncing with the symbol again? This has been a weird pain point for me for some time now. It seems like a bug but if at, what seems like, any point in time I try to add something to a symbol, with or without the sync button checked, it has a broken red line on the new layer and does not sync with the rest of the artboards where I am using that symbol. This causes me incredible frustration because as much as I read about how to use symbols in Affinity Designer it should just work. It's not that difficult. Yet I find myself accidentally removing things from a symbol when I thought it was unsynced, and I can't seem to add things to a symbol when they are synced. OSX, latest version. No I cannot share the file. #venting
  9. Thanks but no, that did not help. =) I am trying to clarify how I can work with point's but translate those appropriately to pixels for web mock ups. If my mock ups have a 20 point margin on both sides, can I safely tell a developer that will be 20 pixels of margin? I don't want final product to look like my mock ups. EDIT: Furthermore confusing is The Ultimate Guide To iPhone Resolutions has the iPhone X as 375 x 812, while Affinity Design's document dimensions for Devices > iPhone X is 950 x 812.
  10. I am creating a web app in React, but designed for iPhone X (to be implemented with Cordova). The mock ups I create will be distilled into (mostly) CSS. The Affinity Designer iPhone X device presets points instead of pixels. I think I got this right, finally, but want to ensure. Searching on the forums here I haven't seen anything that seems to make heads or tails of this definitively for me. Depending on what your DPI is 1pt is 1pt. Whether its 72DPI (web) or 216DPI (iPhone X). So, if that's true, does that mean that if I want to create a rectangle 10px from the left edge, I would make it 10pt from that edge? If I have this right that means if I export @1x then it will come out at 10px distance from the edge but @3x it would be 30px. Basically I want my designs to translate easily from Retina on my MacBook Pro when presenting to something I can annotate for CSS. Maybe there is a better way to do this than to use the default iPhone X? Thanks in advanced for you 2 cents.

    Craft by invision app

    Researched this, this morning. Apparently this is no longer on the roadmap.
  12. Fully aware this is an old thread but wanted to express that I encountered this issue, searched and found this thread. March 17, 2017 and subtraction still causes weird artifacts. Rotating something 45 degrees caused the same issue. Rotating at a random degree worked.

    Pixel Export Opaque Issue

    This is breaking my heart; due to deadlines I am forced to throw this portion of my design in Photoshop. Not ideal but not a deal breaker as I do genuinely love the workflow in Affinity Designer.

    Yes I am on a new MacBook Pro Retina screen and I am hoping it is 'me' and not the software as odd as that sounds I have no problem being wrong.

    Pixel Export Opaque Issue

    Not happening MEB. I started with a new document, the left part of the pill which already existed, and the end part with already existed. Rasterized after making sure Pixels were set at the Snap to units. Attached is the outcome button new-archive-search-buttom.png and the two pieces I am using to make the button. I am using 1px width from the button_right.gif as I am sure you will see when you open all of these up. I don't want to open Photoshop MEB!! LOL Thank you for your time and patience, Frank
