  1. With Aperture dying and with Lightroom now being rental software only (I will not even get into the hot mess that Apple's Photos is), I was wondering whether there are any plans to implement image management into Affinity photos. That would be great! Lars
  2. It's finally here ('align to first/last object selected') Thanks for implementing it!
  3. Hi guys, Two years, and two pages of people agreeing with me, after the initial post, I was wondering if that feature finally will materialize. Seems to me, that it should be quite easy to implement.... Any news? Thanks, Lars
  4. Hi guys, I do not manage to change any of the attributes of the surrounding frame of any Frame text. I would like to have a background color and some more padding towards the border. The only way I managed to do so, is to use a formatted square and align artistic text over it. Is there a way to apply formatting to the frame of a fame text? Thanks Lars
  5. Hi guys, I have recently switched my whole research group from using AI to using Affinity Designer. However, the thing that every single user heavily complained about, and that really limits the utility of AffinityDesigner for us, is the lack of an option to select a key or reference object that stays put during alignment and distribution operations. This is very crucial for the preparation of scientific data plots where one really cannot have the data points shifting around when aligning them to their labels. It would also be very helpful for preparing multi-paneled figure etc. Also, while at it, a 'select same color/stroke/fill/...' feature would be great, and the eyedropper tool could use some attention (eg. for text and vector objects) Please make these available, and I will promise, that there will be a landslide of scientists moving away from their current overpriced rental software to using Affinity Designer Thanks Lars
  6. Ok, thanks, I will request it again. It is one of the main issue that prevents the wide spread use of affinity designer for us scientists. You reallly cannot have your data points jumping around when aligning them to their labels.
  7. Well, our messages have crossed. Thanks for the swift response! Any chance we get the key-object selection any time soon? This and the select-same options
  8. Ok, figured it myself. Objects need to be distributed first before the options become available. Unfortunately, there is still no way of defining a key object that stays put for alignment/distribution operations..
  9. For some odd reason, I cannot change any of the alignment menu options and hence, I am not able to have objects spaced at a fixed distance. Help urgently needed. Thanks Lars
  10. First of all, I find affinity designer awesome and I cannot wait to be able to completely switch from the bloated, overprice 'mud brick' rental packages. However for this to happen, I would need to have better vector graph alignment tools. In particular, I would need to be able to select a 'key object' that stays put while the other objects are aligned relative to the key object. Also, it would be great if one could select multiple nodes (inkl. a key node) and align them. The snapping function works great but sometimes it is just not enough... Anything like this planned anytime soon? Thanks Lars
