  1. Hi Everyone, i'm not sure if it's a bug, but i use "insert filler text" a lot, so i decided to give it a shortcut. Usualy when i use the text menu i get classic "Lorem ipsum", but since i have created a shortcut i have what seems to me pieces of "Alice in wonderland". Is that known? Looks like an easter egg of some sort. Haven't found options to set it to "Lorem ipsum". Any idea? Thx ! Ben
  2. @walt.farrell I feel dumb about not even thinking of that... Thx it works perfectly @2sticks That's a wide question, that needs a wide answer. I've been making UI since 2009, using Fireworks instead of Photoshop. I still think it was the good option. I use Sketch, Figma, and other many tools from time to time. But for me, as prototyping tools they can be great, but none of them offers a wide range of possibilities (creativity) as AD. All of them have things missing either AD does (CSS values, direct export to online services like Zeplin, Symu, InVision, plugins..) At the end i would just say, test them all, learn to know them all (as you might need them on some projects, and so you can compare). And for your daily routine choose the one that fits your needs.
  3. I've taken my best showel to dig that post up. In 2018, when i discovered this easter egg, i was pretty amused. 2019, i've tried different shortcuts to workaround the easter egg and have lorem ipsum placeholder text instead, but can't find one. I use the menu text > insert filler text, maybe nearly 30 times a day, when i make UI design... And i would appreciate to be able to use a shortcut instead... Any clue, solution, workaround, trick, so that i can have lorem ipsum with shortcut? Thx
  4. Hey there, this is still an issue. I've been trying to use the new features, since AE finally updated to 1.7 . As a webdesigner, i obviously use artboards AND margins/column guides.. etc So my question is, is it still a known issue to be fixed in the near future? Thx
  5. Not sure if i should laugh or cry of that kind of answer. BTW, mid January 2019, is the issue fixed? Cause i've got 250+ photos to batch/macro/crop and manually is not even an option. Thx

    Cannot resize panels

    Have no issues on my side with resizing panels. What version of OSX and Affinity are you using?
  7. Hi, why not just add stroke and thick it to the number of pixel wanted? (eventually expand stroke afterward and "add" the two curves to merge them together)
  8. geez lol i use the shit+cmd+opt+F to invoke filler text ^^ And i use cmd+opt+F to invoke fx panel.. Guess i'll have to find another shortcut ^^ you guys made my day
  9. This issue has been around for so much time... Dozens of people including myself have asked for a real pixel alignement. Maybe one day! Oh and speaking of asked features, when is the warp tool coming for AD @MEB ? Cheers
  10. Hi, i am wondering if there's a way to search in all assets collection instead of switching from one collection to the other? Note : By the way i've notice a bug when search is active, switching to another assets collection often make AD to crash. Thanks
  11. Hi there, i have a bug on a large (weight less 1mb but has 9 artboards and lost of objects) document that used Symbols, it crashes on resize. I tried to delete symbols, ungroup everything, and isolate pages on different document but it crashes every time. Can someone in Serif team provide me a Dropbox link so you can take a look at it? It's a production document i'm working on and my customer is waiting for me to make changes so it kind of urgent :/ . Thanks !
  12. Well that still is pretty near from now, good ! Is there somewhere you give such informations? Doesn't seems to be discuss anywhere on the forum neither on your blog (i might have missed it though). Cheers !
  13. Nice to ear ! Keep up the good work ! When is the next mac release scheduled? Cheers !
  14. Si all, how can i use the transparency tool on an image that has been rasterised? When you import images in affinity designer they are displayed as "image" in layer panel. But since you rasterize them, they are defined as "pixel". Is there a way to put "pixel" back into "image" in order to use transparency tool on them? Or is there a way to use transparency tool on pixel? Thanks ! Bento
  15. Thanks to you 3, i'll continue to reimport images to do what i need. In fact i shouldn't have those issues, but i'm using "Edit in photo" to work on visuals as i'm crafting my webdesigns so from time to time i might rasterize layer. This not optimum but AD's still young, i'll be patient ^^.
  16. Thanks MEB, and nice workaround Carl ! -> Mhhh i don't see "Past sp├ęcial" in AD ?
  17. How did you do that in AD?? Perspective tool is still in roadmap! Share your knowledge right away ! :D --EDIT-- it was made in AP right ? Then opened in AD?
  18. Right, it might not be the cleanest way for sure, but the quickest depending on your needs. (Gif is real time creation beside creating the circle and star.) PixelPest's solution is pretty cool too, but you can't modify the shape of your star as you wish so for me it's no go. Your solution is interesting, but seems to me a bit of a waste of time to create a new document/place the star and move the rotation point. But all of that is a question of habits. The ones i find useful for me might surely not meet your needs ! ;) Cheers !
  19. Had to do this for a european company brand. My way to do it was to create a circle and a star and use power duplicate :
  20. Hi, look like i must be missing something. Usually when i need to refine edges on a previous selection i have settings conbined to the tool i'm using under the main top toolbar. But i must have done something wrong 'cause i can't find them anymore?! Any clue? THX Bento
  21. Thanks for the information. But i was asking that 'cause i wanted to delete the shortcut if it exists. I don't want to it to reproduce ;) . Have a good day ! Cheers
