  1. Hello guys. I'm tried to help a mate. He has some templates he made, and he wants to replace the texts in the textboxes for each client, but he wants the font size to change automatically , so all the text is visible in the textbox instead of wrapping it. I tried to help him by showing him the Constraint feature in View > Studio but it doesn't help. It only works in resizing the objets, not font size. Eg: He opens a template. Navigates to a textfield where the name of the client is supposed to be written. The textfield has a default text of "My Name". He types a long name. The font size changes accordingly, so the long name shows up completely in the textbox, without wrapping it to new lines. Is there a way to achieve this? Is some feature like this in the roadmap? Thank you!

    Excellent idea!
  3. A**** Photoshop has this feature. It allows to search for specific layers in an ocean of layers.
  4. 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.

    Scripting

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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!
  10. Totally agree. Preferences window is a mess.

    This! OMG! Never thought about this! This way, developers can control Affinity programs in any language flavor they want. I would use Python and Typescript. <3
  12. Hello guys! The Flip Vertical/Horizontal icon is missing in Affinity Photo from the main toolbar and it's missing from the Customize Toolbar window.

    Thank you for the video and for replying. Sorry for the delay. I'm programmer and have been very busy building some apps and learning some new technologies and languages. Let me explain what my cousin needs:
  14. I can't react anymore for 24 hours LOL I'm banned! I reacted with a heart on your reply. Other developers are talking about this. Python, TypeScript and Javascript are the language more voted. I'd vote for Python or Javascript because they are not static typed, easier for building actions/macros/extensions to automate tasks in Affinity programs. It's a must! So every programmer out there can develop these so less feature requests the Affinity developers will have.
  15. Hello guys. I left this feature request in the image-line forums, for the music production software FL Studio, so, I would love to have the following feature in Affinity as well. It's the ability to program commands or extensions like programs like Microsoft Office, Adobe Flash/Animate, Microsoft VS Code, etc. It would be really useful to be able to create commands to automatize tasks, in either Python, C# or Javascript language. (I'd said mostly C#, but Python would be good because of its simple syntax). This will benefit greatly the Affinity/Serif developers, because they would only need to focus on fixing bugs mostly, and us community programmers could contribute by creating these commands and extensions so, the amount of features request should decrease. For example, one crucial extension would be we type a text in a input textfield/dialog, and it splits that text by the spaces and create {n} amount of textfields with the split words. Also, search layers by layer description/name/title or by another search query like hidden, locked, blend mode, or layer containing {x} FX, or search all layers of type textfield, or search all pixel layers, etc. There are so many tools we need to automatize task that us programmers could easily implement. Can someone from Affinity confirm if there is any plan of including this feature, or at least, if they would at least consider implementing it in like version 2.x? Thank you!

    Expand Stroke Broken

    Hello guys! Already read a lot of "Expand Stroke Broken" topics. Just wanted to give follow up. It's annoying! I have Designer version 1.6.5.123. Thanks!

    Expand Stroke Broken

    But you can certainly speak for us to the higher ends, because we paid for it, but if features like this are faulty for sooo long... one would certainly think twice to pay for the next major upgrades. This kind of bugs slows our workflow. Thank you.

    [Bug] Pixelated vectors on big documents

    Thank you guys for your answers. I probably opened a picture that was that size and the canvas stayed at that size. I will try using integers to see if I see any difference, but with MEB's answer, I think I get why is this happening. I just assumed that because there is a bridge between Designer and Photo, then in Photo the vectors would act as vectors. I don't remember having this issue in Adobe Photoshop CC and I used it a lot in my former Publishing Agency. In Photoshop I could work with vectors with any issue in any canvas size.
  20. Environment Description: OS: Windows 10 Pro 64bit Affinity Photo Version: 1.6.5.135 Graphics Card: NVIDIA NVS 4200M Driver Version: 21.21.13.6909 Driver Date: 8/1/2016 Issue Description: After being using Affinity first Windows versions, I am now noticing strange visual glitches. Vectors on 1000px and up document sizes used too look good, and it should because they are vectors not pixels. But now I'm getting pixelated text fields and vectors on big documents. I tried disabling Windows Scaling back to 100% from 125%, I tried formatting Windows 10 (I had to anyways, there where other issues not related to Affinity). I noticed that sometimes, when I create the text fields and vectors from scratch it doesn't happen, so it must be related to how the screen refreshes after a size change. I don't think this is graphics video related issue (it could be, though).
  21. Some icons are not accessible when I set Display Scaling at anything but 100%. I had to do this because I have a 1968 x 1080 monitor and everything looks extremely small on at 100%. I know I can undock it and all the icons will be shown, but then it will be floating and I can't snap it to any side of the workspace. Maybe allowing the resizing of the toolbox and also snapping it to any side or bottom. Or adding top and bottom arrows to show more icons (scrolling?) For now, I found this workaround:
