  1. I tried to find the appropriate forum for this question, but couldn't find anything. I want to report a forum user, who is very rude, arrogant, toxic, and he even makes fun of the topics we create by using laughing reactions. Also, he makes these kind of sarcastic questions implying as we were dumb and showing off as if he was a know-it-all. Also, he questions the features we request, as if because he don't need those features, nobody else needs them. We don't need people like this here. Thanks.
  2. In what version we're finally getting the Trace Bitmap? It has been promised before. Also, I want to request a feature to create a vector shape/path from a selection. Thank you for all the work done, really appreciate all the developers hard work, as a developer/programmer myself.
  3. You tried to sound poetic and deep but ended sounding very arrogant and selfish. People who feel that they are already "complete" with the existing Affinity programs can't prevent other people of feeling incomplete, and needing other ones. Who are you to dictate what's completeness means for everybody in the world?
  4. Are you making fun of us? Can't tell... HOW DARE WE wanting a complete suite of programs to be finally free from the enslaving subscription-based competitor... HOW DARE WE!
  5. Tell that to Jetbrains. They have an IDE for every top programming language. They don't say "We're not sure we need another of these". And if they don't make an IDE for "x" language, it's because another existing IDE already supports that language. Affinity needs Presentation and Animation solftware and it will be complete. Or they can merge those to and giving us a Presentation & Animation software with 2 personas: Presentation, Animation.
  6. Can't find this option in the Preferences. It's a must. I'm tired of having to RightClick > Rasterize Trim every time I import an image. There are tools that can't work on an Image layer like inpainting, marquee tool, etc. Others automatically converts the Image to Pixel with Assistant.
  7. Oh sorry, I just noticed I'm on the wrong Forum. I selected "Affinity On Desktop" and I ended in Publisher. Bye!
  8. I make a lot of quick image edits for the web. Each time I import an image, I have to right click > Rasterize Trim, in order to make Raster Editing like marquee tool, selections, inpainting, etc. Not every tool automatically converts the Image to Pixel while trying to use the tool. At least, the Warp Tool uses the Assistant to convert the Image to Pixel. Am I missing something? Can we make Raster edits on an Image layer?

  10. Yup. After reading all comments, TypeScript and Javascript are the most obvious solutions. TypeScript for the ones who love static typing, and Javascript for the ones who want to type less. But also, Serif should consider choosing TypeScript as default, but allowing BINDINGS to other languages so everyone is happy.
  11. A**** Photoshop has this feature. It allows to search for specific layers in an ocean of layers.
  12. I by mistake used the term "Sort". I mean "Search". Photoshop has this feature. We can search layer based on queries like locked, unlocked, hidden, visible, by name, by filters, by blend mode. It helps when you have so many layers and you need to find specific layers and do something with/to them.
  13. Yup, definitely it should be Javascript and Typescript (for the ones who love static typing). Typescript is basically Javascript, with static typing added. Typescript is the best choice, because then we can know at authoring time, the types of the variables, properties, function returns, etc. For example: import { Shape, Layer} from "affinity"; import * as affinity from "affinity" var rect:Shape = affinity.document.current.selectedItem(); var rect2:Shape = affinity.document.duplicate(rect); for(var layer:Layer in affinity.document.layers) { affinity.document.select( layer ); } I have experience with JSFL, an Adobe Flash (now Animate) Authoring environment Javascript API. You can run the actions inside the program, or load an *.jsfl file.
  14. A lot of people complaining about the use of tabs in Python. So I got a feeling the best 2 languages to automate Affinity programs are Javascript and Typescript (static typing <3 ) . But something tells me they could end implementing their own language, like Unity with the JScript, Microsoft's dialect of the ECMAScript
  15. Not having to wait for the developers to add missing features and advanced macros/actions. A lot or programs since 90's allow to do this, like Microsoft Office programs using Visual Basic to automate tasks.
  16. Why it looks ugly? Because it's not your language of preference? Because it has brackets to open and close blocks instead of tabs? I've seen a few people preaching about ancient languages in here, trying to make it relevant. One preaching about Haskell, others about Lua or Cobol, don't know, and so on. So your opinions are biased, favoring personal preference and not a generalized overview on users needs and simplicity, accessibility, maintainability, compatibility, etc. Top programming language of 2019 Python Javascript Typescript C++ C# PHP Java
  17. I Agree on Python, because its power, and syntax simplicity. But if they go the HTTP requests route and let developers choose their own language, I would choose Typescript or C# because I love static typed languages. Let's say: Something like that. Beautiful!
