  1. No disagreement from me about that, but it remains true that for many curves there is no obvious inside or outside.
  2. All I can tell you is on Macs, in all the places I mentioned above, it is called "Affinity Photo 2." In fact, Terminal commands that do not include the 2 will either fail or open V1 if it installed.
  3. I am not sure how it is named on Windows but on Macs it is definitely named Affinity Photo 2. This can be seen in Finder windows of the Applications folder, on the Dock popup if the app has an icon there, in Terminal, & so on. So it is not short for anything.
  4. It has ... but I'm still trying to figure out what would be considered the inside or outside of several open curves, like S or Z shaped ones, zig-zags, or 2-node straight lines. What would you suggest for ones like in this inside or outside?.afdesign example?
  5. In the V2 Text on a path help pages for all 3 apps, (for example https://affinity.help/designer2/en-US.lproj/pages/Text/pathText.html) there is this: I did not check what the V1 pages say but in the above topics it is clear the path object is not discarded.
  6. FWIW, in APub V2.4.0 on my Mac, I created this Lots o' column guides.afpub 3300x3300 px document & had no problems setting large numbers of column & row guides, As attached I used 120 for both, but using the scroll wheel method I could easily set them to 500 or more & everything updated in realtime.
  7. However, that will not remove any of the per user support files if the app has been used.
  8. FWIW, in AP 2.4.0 on my Mac, there is no popup slider for spacing like is shown in the OP's video, & whenever I change the spacing value, either by entering a number & exiting that numeric field or by using the scroll wheel to change it, it updates in realtime. So I'm not sure if the Mac version should have a popup slider that is missing or what....
  9. What kind of text object are you using, Is it Frame or Artistic text?
  10. Thanks! You might think that by now I would not make that stupid mistake but I still do it from time to time. I just fixed the links in an edit.
  11. It might help if you could attach a sample file from your camera to a reply so others can see if they get the same results.
  12. Do you really mean you exported the file from your V1 app (which one?) to a PNG file, or do you mean you did something else? If so, what exactly was it that you did?
  13. I don't think this has anything to do with any of the Affinity apps, nor do I think it is malware. Did you by chance open Terminal.app on your Mac by accident? If it is open, the main Mac menu will say "Terminal" just to the right of the Apple logo. If so, you can just click on the word Terminal there to open a menu & choose Quit from it, or use the normal keyboard shortcut for quitting a Mac app (Command + Q). That said, I'm not sure why it says "You have mail" on the second line. I have never seen anything like that in Terminal.
  14. Almost since day 1 of the first release of AP V1, I (among others) have posted in many topics that this brush should be named the Hue Replacement Brush Tool, but to no avail. FWIW, the link to the online US English version of that page for V2 is https://affinity.help/photo2/en-US.lproj/index.html Try https://affinity.help/photo2/en-US.lproj/pages/Tools/tools_clrReplacementBrush.html It is the same for V1 at https://affinity.help/photo/en-US.lproj/index.html, so this inconsistency has remained uncorrected for a very long time. Try https://affinity.help/photo/en-US.lproj/pages/Tools/tools_clrReplacementBrush.html
  15. This is not unique to APub. Any time you are in text entry mode in any text field, at least for frame or art text layers, the apps must assume you want to enter a tab character. it is a bit weird for text fields in Studio panels because in most (all?) you can't actually use a tab so it is ignored but the focus remains on that field. I assume the logic here is that if you intentionally set the focus to a text field in a Studio panel, there is a presumption that you would not want to hide it, so it sort of makes sense.
  16. Like @Hangman mentioned in your bug report, this seems to be a Windows only bug. On my Mac, holding CTRL has no effect on the boolean geometry stuff -- it is simply ignored, so it is the same as an ordinary left-click.
  17. I think the real issue for you is if you can somehow convince the Affinity developers that the install options you believe should be available actually would be something enough users would want or ever use to justify the work required to include & maintain them. I think that is a lost cause but I wish you luck if you want to try to do that.
  18. I don't think it is really an issue for enough users to justify any special treatment. It only comes up a few times a month, near as I can tell, so not really very frequently in the greater scheme of things. Of course, YMMV. 😉
  19. But this support forum provides lots of very effective support not just from the staff but also from other users -- in fact, very often the overworked staff doesn't even need to get involved because other users have already done so. So if the info was limited to just the support staff via some (once again new) code addition the effectiveness of this forum would be adversely affected, the staff would be even more overworked, & getting effective support would take much longer. Besides, some users are quite leery of supplying comprehensive info to Serif or anybody else about what else they may have installed besides one or more Affinity apps that may be relevant to some issue, like third party additions, unless or until they are convinced it might be relevant to whatever issue(s) they are asking about. As for including 'advanced' options, it still requires more code & more maintenance as the apps are updated, which means the developers would have to devote more time to that & less to fixing the plethora of existing bugs, & adding requested & planned features to the apps, all to benefit what I think must be a tiny fraction of users who want more complete control over what gets installed, at the expense of those who are quite happy with how the installers work now.
  20. Sure ... but there are also many others that some users could accidentally trigger so I think most users would be annoyed if all or even many of the others of them included a 'don't show again' checkbox. And of course, inevitably some users will have clicked the boxes & realized they didn't mean to do that & want some way to reenable the message(s). IOW, where do you draw the line?
  21. Or Clip to Canvas, Split View, any of the Tool shortcuts, or anything else that could be set to a single key shortcut? For that matter, even the shortcuts that require a modifier key could be activated by accident, so I do not think it is practical to add options to display messages when any keys are pressed by accident.
