  1. Thanks anyway Bri-Toon for the kind reply. Regards. Marco (mkdm)
  2. Hello Mr. Petrenko. Thanks for the reply. I love Affinity Designer/Photo (also the Photo for iPad Pro that I use almost daily) but I really hope that v 2 of Designer will be released soon (also for iPad), because actually it's really missing many important vector features. Regards. Marco (mkdm)
  3. Hello Bri-Toon! Thanks for the reply. @You : "...Welcome to the Affinity forum, mkdm...." I'm already an Affinity forum user for a long time @You : "...are already on the roadmap...." Well....but I think that features are in the roadmap for a long time...too much time I think. @You : "...requests should actually get their own topics...." I've already post this questions into the "Feature request" topic many month ago. Ok. I will redo. Thanks and have a nice day. Marco (mkdm)
  4. Hi Affinity team and good morning. First of all I wish to thank you for all new things you're doing (all recent updates). Great stuff! Best wishes for all your woks. I bought more than two years ago both Photo and Designer and globally I can say that I'm really satisfied with them. Both are great software in many aspects with very good workflow that I daily use for my job. I'm a software developer and I often leverage on Photo and Designer to create mock-up and UI for Android Apps and I also use them daily, integrated into my whole 2d and also 3D pipeline. Yes, in fact Designer is perfect when coupled to a 3D Nurbs software that I daily use, Moi3D, that is very powerful for creating also 2D vector graphics. In this way I can combine the precision and the power of a Nurbs CAD with the versatility and the graphic capabilities of both Designer and Photo. So, I repeat, I'm globally very satisfied with your software. But, with said, I also must say that as a long time satisfied DrawPlus user, there are still TOO many features and important tools that are missing in Designer, and that I'm asking for a long time on this channel I'm referring to some features that really makes the difference in my daily job. I hope that, along with bug fixes, you will include these long time missing features in the next official version of Affinity Designer, that I loved and used a lot in DrawPlus X8. I mean, please include this missing features : 1) Tracing images 2) Knife tool : awfully useful !! It allow a superfast workflow. In designer we have to use Combine, Subtract end so on but it's not the same tings and the DrawPlus's way is times faster. 3) Freeform Paint Tool : awfully useful !! It's much more advanced of the Vector Brush Tolls in Designer because it can handle separately the stroke and the fill. 4) Erase tool : awfully useful !! 5) Flood Fill toll : awfully useful !! Why did you drop it in Designer ? This tool is very useful especially when importing tracing or other vector files created with other software. 6) Envelope, Perspective : awfully useful !! 7) SHAPE BUILDER TOOL : awfully useful !! Please include it into Designer. Again...it's not the same thing of using Combine, Subtract end so on. 8) Mesh Fill Tools : awfully useful !! 9) Last but not least....MESH WARP TOOL (in vector mode) : Please add this very missing features. I hope that you will take into great consideration these requests and I wish you all the best for you wok and your life in general You said that "...are already on Affinity Designer's roadmap.." Ok. That's good, but this situation lasts for a long time and no new "vector" feature where added. Please consider that the tools I mentioned in this post and that are presents in DrawPlus, are not only very useful but essential in many aspects of my daily job, and I'm still forced to copy/paste/export PDF, read again into Designer, doing these things back and forth many times and all my workflow is very slowed down. Thanks and have a nice day. Regards. Marco (mkdm)
  5. Congratulations!!!! You were one of the best "surprise" of the last two years (2016-17)!! I'm your customer since Serif Drawplus x5 and I always loved your Apps. I hope that soon you will release also Designer for iPad Pro! Thanks. Marco (mkdm)

    Affinity Photo for iPad - 1.6.5

    Thanks a lot! Is there any "Expand Stroke" command available in Affinity Photo for ipad ? You said : "... Affinity Designer for iPad..." So...is there any chance to see "Affinity Designer" soon on iPad Pro too ? That would be a HUGE improvement for productivity on iPad Pro!!

    Affinity Photo for iPad - 1.6.5

    Hi everyone! While I'm searching for a good workflow to manage a full "back and forth" import/export of vector gfx via Pdf with Affinity Photo and Autodesk Graphic (on my iPad Pro 12.9 2th gen) I'm wandering if there is a tools inside Affinity Photo for setting "curve stroke" like the Desktop counterpart. I didn't find anything about that on Photo for iPad. I really need that tool!

    Affinity Photo for iPad - 1.6.5

    Hello Affinity team! I'm working on Affinity Photo on a brand new iPad Pro 12.9 and it seems really a great porting from PC/Mac to iOS, but form me it still misses some very important features, that I hope you will implement soon : 1) First of all : BRUSH CURSOR HOVERING. This is a fundamental feature for me. I need at least to see the brush shape outline while I draw, like I can do with a setting in Procreate 2) Support for multitasking side-by-side windows in iOS 11 with drag and drop 3) When transforming objects/layers, the chance to see and position/snap the "Rotation centre" in order perform rotation around a pivot point Thanks a lot and have a nice day. Marco (mkdm) P.S. Are you planning to do also a porting of Designer for iOS ?
  11. Hello MEB and thanks a lot for your prompt reply. I understand your point of view and I can even understand that Affinity is a new line of products. No problem. They are very good products. But I think that you should listen to your customers that like me have a long time experience with vector graphics and CG in general and that have to deal daily with many little or big problems in their job. You said that "...are already on Affinity Designer's roadmap.." Ok. That's good, but this situation lasts for a long time and no new "vector" feature where added. Please consider that the tools I mentioned in my previous post and that are presents in DrawPlus, are not only very useful but essential in many aspects of my daily job, and I'm still forced to copy/paste/export PDF, read again into Designer, doing these things back and forth many times and all my workflow is very slowed down. I thank you again for your response and for all your efforts in doing Affinity even better but I hope that you will include soon this missing features too important for my daily job, because actually I'm forced to use many different external tools that slowdown my workflow, and my workflow is my daily match... Thanks and have a nice day. Marco (mkdm)

    Affinity Photo for iPad - 1.6.4

    Hi Affinity team! When do you will publish thew announced 1.6 Affinity (Photo/Designer) update for Windows ? Have a nice day. Cheers. Marco (mkdm)

    Affinity Photo for iPad - 1.6.3

    Hi Affinity Team. Just a simple question. What about the (I suppose) I.6 verisons of Photo/Designer also for Windows ? Thanks and have a nice day. Marco (mkdm)
  15. +1000 for me too, for this feature. P.S. When a new version of Designer for Windows ? It's a very good product but it still misses a certain amount of fundamental things compared to AI. I like Designer very much but for my daily job it's still a bit too "young". Have a nice day. - Marco (mkdm)
