  1. Oooh, I see, that makes sense! Consider this thread void. @rjvela82 thank you for clarifying
  2. Linking the values is possible with the newest update (
  3. At the moment, the „Clip to Canvas“ option does not crop the bleed area. As this feature is for previewing your layout (at least that would be my expectation and my use) the bleed area should also be cropped away, because it is not part of the final layout/product, but just something meant for production.
  4. This seems like a bug to me. In the New File Dialog, you kindly added the possibility to link the margins, so you only have to write your value once. But if there are already different values in the fields, and you click on the „link“ symbol, the values aren’t updated and matched. In my opinion, clicking the link should automatically set all values to the same value (preferably the left margin, because it is the first field). Ideally the other three fields would even be greyed out or removed, and the field should be renamed to just „Margin“. But just letting different values as they are, even after you linked them, seems very odd. The same behavior would be applicable to similar situations, like the bleed dialog, etc. Attached a screenshot with the actively linked fields with different values.
  5. I guess AD should have intelligent resource management. Also you can link the image, instead of embedding it, so it doesn’t consume file size. But there seems to be a bug at the moment, that is promised to being fixed in the final release. See this post:
  6. May I ask why it's gonna be disabled, and if there is gonna be a similar feature to rotate the view. I need such a function really a lot. When you design stuff that has a horizontal fold, you always have at least one page that is turned 180°. I'd rather have a 90°-wise rotation, but there should definitely be some way to rotate the canvas.
  7. I guess Affinity in it’s awesomness would come up with something even better In my workflow I often come to the point where I say to myself: “I must not forget to change this before exporting”. I guess I’m not the only one. How about a panel that stores automatically generated (like Preflight) and custom notes that will popup before exporting. For example I get a photo from my client that is blurry and not ideal for production, but it has enough DPI for the given size. A Preflight-system won’t catch this. But If I could associate a note with that element and add some text like “get better photo from client before production”, then Affinity could warn me on export. Maybe a bad example, but I come across such situations every day.

    The bleed option is there, it’s just very hidden. You have to go to File → Document Setup → The third tab is “Bleed”. Sadly there is no line on the border in the document view that actually shows the bleed area. When exporting you will find “iclude bleed” and also “include printers marks” in the “more” section. As you can see here, the handling of bleed is already an issue being addressed. I’m positive that in the version 1 release the handling will be much more delightful.
  9. I really doubted my mind for a moment. Now the whole thing is in English suddenly. If I hadn’t had screen screenshots with german texts, I would’ve thought I’ve gone mad. So well, there was some German mixed into it, but now everything is English again. Maybe I got some strings from the German versions of Designer and Photo … I don’t know.

    Thank you, Affinity!

    Yeah absolutely, I second that. This software looks already awesome. From what I’ve seen at the moment, I’m in especially in love with the following features: Text Flow with different distances on each side for free shapes (not even InDesign does support that atm) Setting a distance to initials Different Borders on different sides (AWESOME) Pages panel can scroll as you scroll the document Paragraph spacing is comprehensive (sum spaces before and after, ignore space for same style, …) Comprehensive bullet points, although yet images or vectors as bullet points are still missing So many text settings can be set relative to baseline, ascender, descender, etc. This is awesome!
  11. Inline elements are an important feature for people who make manuals and things like that. I totally miss that feature. In InDesign I use it for custom Bullets, for stuff like Guides to insert buttons into text, and so on.
