  1. Here’s anther way of doing it. Probably the best way, but a bit more complicated to understand at first. There also seem to be some issue with the automatic rotation not liked to the possition. That’s why you see me doing the 360/12 and getting 30 degrees but it’s rotated wrong and I have to manually move it. B7410183-7749-4FBC-82FE-050F43FB05B4.MP4
  2. That’s great to hear! If this was my app, that has the potential to replace something like Illustrator, I would drop all other development on Designer and work on this. Selecting and moving anchor points is the main interaction with vector shapes in a vector app. Most of the vector apps available on the iPad have this figured out and the bar is very low for vector apps on this platform. After all these are free apps that have this working and Designer has not.

  4. You can also try the cog tool. Select the cog tool from the shape tools, it’s probably a square now. Pick how many repeating cogs you want and move the inner circle so it covers the outer one leaving only the cogs of the circle. Now adjust the shape and make them small squares. Convert to lines and select the corner tool and round all corners leaving dots or circles.
  5. Picking any anchor point in any cluster will move all of them and it’s easy to select the anchor points. I must be missunderanding this feature in Designer.
  6. Here’s how I expect this to work. E20B5A40-03DE-41DD-A791-1225F80F4817.MP4
  7. One the same topic, but different problem. How do you select all the anchor points in a thighs spot like in this video? It’s extremely frustrating to say the least. Please say I missing a gesture or something to me this easier? 4B5A343E-3E7B-4C9E-B5A6-3E6CED92631F.MP4
  8. So the problem is that it’s too easy to select the control handles when you have multiple anchor points selected. The handles have to be long for you to not move just one handle. There has to be a better way to make sure all the anchor points moves together after they are selected. Why would you want to move just one control handle after selecting multiple anchor points?
  9. If you have a shape with many nodes like a letter converted to curves it’s very difficult to select and move multiple nodes. There does not seem to be any logic to what node will move all of them. I get that the concept is to select the nodes and then pick one node and move all of them together. This does not work most of the time if there are many nodes close together. You have to select and find the random node that seem to move all of them. If you select the wrong one just the one node moves. It’s a strange way to do this and to me looks like a bug. It’s also too easy to deselect all the nodes you want to move forcing you do start over. This really needs to be fixed right away as this is a main feature in any vector program and Designer can not be used as is. If I’m misunderstanding how to do this please let me know.
  10. Ok, I was watching some tutorials and learned the trick of doing two separate raw processing and then merging them in a photo editor then combining them by selecting the exposure you want. This should work as way to get the same latitude as local raw adjustments. Will work on that.
  11. There was a promotional link to DxO Optics Pro 9 for free at Dpreview... so I tried it. It does not have local adjustments available. Now I understand that with a separate non-destructive raw developer, and photo editor you're talking about no local adjustments at all in the raw stage. I don't understand what the benefit of that would be, other than maybe ease of use in the tool you make the adjustment with. Surely, you will have more latitude to work with in the raw file? So, doing at least a rough targeted adjustment at that stage must then give a better image quality, no? Not even with a gradient filter in the sky? If there's something I'm missing here I want to learn. Thanks!
  12. Will let you know... If Affinity don't do refunds they have every right to. I just thought I would ask because I have no real use for the editing part without a solid reliable processing module. What is your workflow from raw to jpg with Affinity? Do you keep the 300mb files around? Do you use the develop persona? I just did very minimum edits in Photoshop because I could get very close to a look I liked with just Camera Raw with most photos. Just don't like Adobe and there prescription model.
  13. I also prefer the raw processing separate from my photo editing like how Photoshop/Camera Raw works. That separate but integrated workflow is what I was hoping for. The choice of the modules or personas in one app seemed like a strange choice to me. Would in not work more efficient if they where separate apps? I don't want to sound like it's not great that someone is working on an alternative to Adobe. I get that this is very hard to do. My disappointment with Affinity Photo is that the description sounded like it already had a full Photoshop replacement workflow.
  14. MJSfoto 1956: You want to use a different program than Affinity for raw processing and your still happy with Affinity's methodology? Would it not be better if Affinity's develop persona supported non-destructive raw like DxO Optics Pro? Then you could use that part of Affinity instead of buying and using two programs. MEB: I forgot to answer that the raw files are Canon's CR2. When save in the Affinity format a file that's only been processed becomes around 300mb.
