  1. This is a great work around. Being on Win10 I am still related to the limit of 12 unfortunately. I'll check out a registry hack for this. Thanks for the reply.
  2. I have been through each of the settings tabs (Affinity Designer for Windows) and cannot for the life of me find a way to increase the recent files list. I have seen some posts that suggest it is in the general tab of the preferences on Mac but I do not see it on the windows version. Where would I change this to increase the number of files on the list of recent files opened? Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
  3. By committing I mean I clicked out to the text box to finish and started doing something else in the file. When I went back it did this behavior. It is still a text object not curves. They are art text layers which I think I mentioned. I am not sure it has to do with that but I am fairly certain I always use those and again, have never seen this behavior before. I should also add that when rolling the mouse over the text after I have started to edit the layer the whole outline of the characters tuns yellow with node points that jump from letter to letter as I move the mouse over them. Sorry and thanks for the reply. Maybe something else? Thanks
  4. I am using the text tool and it all works great but if I try to edit the text after it's been committed, AD behaves strangely. I cannot see highlight text. I only see what I assume is it's vector points as I move my mouse after clicking in the text area. It's making it very difficult to work with the text as I cannot see what is highlighted. I think I may have inadvertently click a short cut key that caused this but have no idea. I only started to notice this since yesterday (Long time user) and have not experienced it before this on this machine or another I use. I am using the artistic text tool which is what I think I usually use for tag lines etc. If anyone can let me know what it is might be happening or suggest how to stop it, I'd appreciate it muchly much. Thanks
  5. There is a fairly large project I am in with many assets across many files. Is there a way to get a list of them (Such as fonts used) in a list to ensure everyone has everything they need to view and edit the project. I'd also like to be able to back up the assets (Including fonts) to a folder. If there isn't a way to get a list maybe it;s some that could be added down the road? I know about the asset manager and that's close but I am not sure it does fonts too. If anyone has an idea on how to do this or a simple work around please let me know. Thanks James
  6. I am sure this has been requested numerous times but I was wondering if there are plans to create a auto trace that would be able to quickly scan artwork or photos and create the vectors from them? Illustrator and I think other vector based programs do this and it's probably the only glaring omission to what is likely the best vector program anywhere.
  7. Holy crap! Thanks guys! I assumed that it would be a button all it's own. I guess from a UI standpoint it's smarter this way. I am so used to Photoshop. Maybe you can answer another quick question related to the shortcut keys for fill (Background and foreground color) I can't seem to select alt-delete or Ctrl-delete for fill. There also only appears to be one key combo allowed for fill too. This is one I use all the time while masking and it is so ingrained. Thanks again.
  8. I don't see this in the selection tools. I prefer this over free hand as I have more precise control. Is there a version of this in Photo or a plan for it? Love the beta so far. Amazing software.
