  1. This is what I meant. Thank you. Having used Illustrator for years I have a lot of 'muscle memory' and I couldn't figure out how to do something as simple as this. It would be nice if there was a key+click combination to select all the connected nodes (and paths). I had posted a couple of videos explaining what I was trying to do. I've edited that post and removed them as you have answered my question. Cheers.
  2. Hi there, Has this been improved - or is it on the horizon for development? I need a quick way to select all the neighbouring nodes on a path so I can delete them (like option+ click with the node tool in Illustrator). I don't want to spend time click-selecting individual nodes or trying to select them with a lasso tool. I'm still having to paste AD work into Illustrator to do this kind of thing. It literally takes a second to do it within Illustrator whereas it can take minutes to select all the nodes manually in AD - particularly with complex designs. Is there is a way to do this that I've not understood? Cheers
  3. I just renewed my subscription today (I have some legacy stuff I need CC for). I used the 40% off link here (https://www.creativebloq.com/features/adobe-deals). - UK only I think. I negotiated 40% off last year too. If you need CC, negotiate. Never pay full price. Having said all that, I'm about 90% Affinity now with my workflow.
  4. You could try the help files that are included with each application? This is the first place to start learning any application. If that doesn’t work for you, why not try some of the official video tutorials? You can find them on the official affinity site. Here is the link: https://affinity.serif.com/ If that doesn’t work for you, try google. I’ve created some clickable links for you here (just in case you’re having any problems). https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=affinity+designer+tutorial&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-gb&client=safari https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=affinity+photo+tutorial&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-gb&client=safari Merry Christmas
  5. I would like the X-3 2002 export option added to Affinity Designer too please. The ability to flatten transparency from .pdf export would be helpful.
  6. Interesting discussion about imperial and metric measurements on (UK) Radio 4 yesterday. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0bk1gsy
  7. Hi all Does the Left-handed mode only change the interface - or does it have an effect on palm rejection? As a leftie, I've had apps in the past that I've had to use 'upside down' as the palm rejection only worked properly for right-handers. Thanks.
  8. Being from the UK (and being of a certain age) I buy my fuel in litres but I measure fuel efficiency in miles per gallon. I measure distance in mm, cm, inches (but not fractions of inches), feet, metres and miles. I measure my food weight in grams and kilograms but I measure my body weight in stones. To me though, the most important measurement is the pint!
  9. Hi varlien. I opened your file on my Mac and I don't have any of the issues you are reporting.
  10. Interesting discussion. I'm UK based and have worked with print design since Aldus Pagemaker. I can't honestly remember using picas - but I did learn about them at art school. I've even got my original metal type scale sitting here on my desk. I suppose 72pt text could also be described as 6p text - but I don't think I've ever described type in picas. I remember learning how to mark up type for phototypesetters but can't for the life of me remember if we used picas. Page dimensions have always been metric for me. Type has always been in points. I'm now trying to get my head around using 'em' in CSS. In the UK, that would be mm/cm and pt - not picas. I guess the US must be different. Makes sense then for Affinity to include them.
  11. You're right. I've jumped to (incorrect) conclusions. I apologise about that. Cheers Dougie
  12. You could try setting up a slack channel and ask people to join. I'm not sure there'd be much enthusiasm for it - but I could be wrong. I think this forum works well enough.
