  1. Hi, I would love to have a feature that lets me export a pdf with several slices grouped into a multi-page pdf. --- Here is my usecase: I have recently corrected exams digitally using a graphics tablet. This is my current workflow: 1. Import all scanned pages from the exam to AD. Each page is an artboard 2. Correct every page of the exam with my graphics tablet 3. Select all pages that belong to a single student 4. Export as a multi-page pdf using "export as" 5. Repeat for every student (30 students – 4 pages each – 120 pages all-in-all) If I need to change something, I need to do step 3–5 all over again. My prefered workflow would look like this: 1. Import all scanned pages from the exam to AD. Each page is an artboard 2. Correct every page of the exam with my graphics tablet 3. Create slices for each artboard 4. Group slices that belong to a single student 5. Configure one multi-page pdf export per student 6. Hit export all This way, I could easily just reexport everything I have configured before. --- I have seen several topics in this forum that look for something similar (like the following), but I could not find a related feature-request, so here it is.
  2. No problem. We have copied the artboards to another file and detached every symbol in the process. The new document works flawlessly, so I think root for the crashes might be in the symbols. Since we refrained from the use of symbols, we had no problems (but using them would be much more comfortable ;) ) You are right, there are some weird symbol structures … we had some deeply nested symbols too. The document is pretty much a hot mess since we tried to fix it by detaching some symbols, while we missed others. But maybe this helps with edge cases …
  3. @Chris B: Ctrl on startup does not help unfortunately. The file causes crashes for our whole team (3 people). All on MacBook Pros. I do not have the exact specs, but I think we are all running MacOs 10.12.4. Mine is a 15" MBP Retina mid 2012. If you need more details, I am glad to help. Thanks for looking into it.
  4. Thanks for the clarification. That makes sense. I wrote a little script to calculate the values I would need in order to land on perfect pixel values (2.23606797749979px spacing) and that works fine. However, doing that is a painful experience. I thought intention of the 2:1 grid is to work with clean pixel values. Maybe you could add a variant of the 2:1 grid, that does just that (just as a feature request).
  5. Steps to reproduce: 1. Open the attached file 2. change something (no matter what) 3. Save or save as Expected behavior: AD saves the file Actual behavior: AD crashes In a previous version the document relied heavily on symbols, but after a lot of crashes (often while copying or changing symbols), we detatched all of them. But at this point we can not do anything with the file. Rack_and_RackItems (1).afdesign
  6. Steps to reproduce Set up an artboard from the 800 × 600px preset Set up the 2:1 isometric grid with a spacing of 1px Expected behavior: The grid should have a spacing of 1px Actual behavior: The grid has a spacing of 0.9px.
  7. Hey, it’s me again with another bug: I want to create text styles for two pretty similar strokes: 1pt black stroke inside, no fill 1pt black stroke center, no fill If I create a style for the first stroke, everything works fine, but if I want to add the second, no style will be created. I think AD thinks, both strokes are the same and prevents me to add a duplicated style. If I change the color, or the stroke width, saving the style works fine. This is also present in the current AD beta.
  8. Thanks, that worked! Is there a big boost in performance by doing this? It was disabled by default and I never thought that could be intended. Maybe it should be checked by default.
  9. 1. Open the attached .psd file in Affinity Designer 2. Turn on 1x Pixel Preview (you can also see it in the other preview modes, but the 1x makes it more clear) The result: If I color the mask directly, or if I use a colored vector rectangle, clipped by the mask, everything works like expected. That leaves me with the assumption, that the fill layer is the cause of this. On that note: Is it even possible to create fill layers in Affinity Designer, or are they just available, by importing a psd file? PS: This also occurs in the current AD beta. Demo.psd
  10. Found it! :) It’s in the top bar. Sorry for bothering you. By the way: Your solution is way better.
  11. Thanks, that was quick! :) But I think I did not phrase the question good enough. I don’t want to copy the artboard, I need to place it via File ▸ Place. Placing it is important, because I don’t need to worry about changing anything by mistake and scaling the whole document. In InDesign you can click on “Show import options”, while placing documents. From there you can choose a specify page. That is pretty much what I am looking for.
  12. Is there a way to place a specific ArtBoard form another Affinity Designer file into my document? Currently I only get the first one.
