  1. What makes you feel that defaulting to layered .tiffs is bad? I may be unusual admittedly but I rarely use flattened tiffs. The layers are what make tiffs useful to me. I’d like it being the default.
  2. Older thread but just adding that Astute Graphics' InkQuest and Phantasm plugins are about the only reason I ever need to open Illustrator anymore. The makes my (somewhat niche) screen printing needs immensely easier. Getting this kind of functionality to work with the Affinity Suite would be awesome.
  3. I know this is an older thread but I would absolutely +1 the pinch/fit request.
  4. When I was a Procreate user, I used this all the time. Would love to see this in Affinity iPad apps
  5. for me +1 on this. I don't need color UI icons, but better contrast with the icons is needed in dark mode for better recognition of elements. I switch between dark and light UI depending on the ambient light in my work environment and the contrast/color/saturation of the images I am working on. The light UI has good contrast for quick icon scanning; the dark not so much. (as an aside I still kinda recall the discussion about this when you launched v1.6 - https://www.designernews.co/stories/79399-is-a-light-or-dark-ui-better: it really seems to come down to preference and content)
  6. +1. Especially if you can support global and/or spot colors. (though just getting basic swatches is a strong need)
  7. def +1 on for undo/redo icons in the UI. I use a graphics tablet (Cintiq) so my hands are not always on the keyboard - having them int he toolbar keeps me sketching since my pen/stylus is already on the screen anyways.
  8. I use the blob brush all the time. It would be a welcome addition - especially if coupled with vector pattern fills.
  9. That "live contour" feature would be awesome, Hope is gets beyond the concept phase.
  10. to add to my earlier comment: here are some work around links
  11. You are looking for an offset path tool (as it is called in Adobe Illustrator or similar). Unfortunately Affinity Designer does not have that specifically yet. But as a work around you can it to add a stroke to a copy of the shape (use the size of the stroke to define the offset distance) and then convert it to a shape going to Layer > Expand Stroke. If you search the forum for offset path you’ll find work arounds.
  12. When I sketch in AD using the Apple Pencil the beginnings of my stroke seem to have small fish hook curves shapes even though I am just just drawing quick short straight lines (like cross hatching). In the screenshot you can see on the engraving brush as well as the HB pencil the stroke ends curve or wrap around. I have the split view open to show the outline view too and I can see that for whatever reason it’s is picking up a small curved stroke. Are there Tilt or other setting I can adjust to get rid of this? I just don’t see this in other vector or raster sketching apps with my Apple Pencil. Note. Apple Pencil + iPad Pro 11 +AD iPad 1.8.3
