    arechsteiner got a reaction from ctk974 in Bootstrap 4 Grid Template for Affinity Designer   
    Hi all
     
    I have released a Boostrap 4 Grid Template for Affinity Designer. It includes columns, gutters as well as guides and some more stuff. This should hopefully help when setting up a new Bootstrap 4 project in Designer.
     
    I hope you find this useful, let me know if anything is missing.
     
    Cheers

    arechsteiner got a reaction from matisso in Bug: "Force pixel alignment" does not always work   
    Sorry I don't see how this could be any simpler to be honest. If there is an option that says "Force pixel alignment" I expect the program to force alignment to whole pixels, period.
    For types of work where you want fractured pixels you would disable "force pixel alignment".
    Anything but 50.5.
    Otherwise you'd have to rename the option to "Try aligning to pixels if it's convenient". In that case please add another option "Mercilessly force pixel alignment" for web designers.
    Cheers

    @MEB: That's exactly my point. Snapping should not override "Force pixel alignment". It' says force, so please actually force.
    I use Affinity Designer for web design, I never ever want any half pixels when sizing and positioning objects. Snapping is useful so I don't want to go and turn it on and off again all the time.
    From my point of view, if I tell Designer to force pixel alignment I should never see fractured pixels on newly positioned and sized objects anymore.

    The option "Force pixel alignment" does not work in all circumstances. Snapping can mess with it and you end up with objects still aligned to half pixels.
    In my opinion, "Force" should mean what it says.

    arechsteiner reacted to MEB in Can't select my objects on the canvas   
    Hi arechsteiner,
    Select all objects dragging a selection marquee around them then change to the Node Tool and set the Stroke to None. The reason you can't select them is because they all have a large stroke (39.1pt) with a (colour) opacity set to 0% covering the others below them in the Layers stack.

    arechsteiner reacted to MattP in some visible hairline that irritate   
    You will get this hairline in any vector program to a greater or lesser extent whenever two edges are exactly the same value... It's a side-effect of the way the rasterisation routine works... There are ways to reduce the effect, but to solve it completely really needs a different approach to the rasterisation (that nobody uses because it provides worse results in other cases). The effects will change based on the exact zoom level and position of the objects on a sub-pixel, but they will always be there. The easiest way to get rid of these is simply to extend objects to overlap in ways that don't matter, and to overlap and 'Add' objects of the same colour to form one object from two that used to butt up to each other. You could also try using the advanced blending options (the cog on the Layers panel) with your objects selected and adjust the antialiasing ramp to include more of the pixels.
     
    We will continue to try to improve this over time, but it is an inherent problem with any vector drawing program (although some do deliberately distort the values you asked for in order to reduce the appearance of this effect, so they seem to be working better - although you can make them fail if you know how...)
     
    Thanks,

    I know this isn't exactly right sub forum to share this, but I thought this was the closest one. Hopefully the admins won't mind  :)
     
    Since the Discord is getting really popular among gamers replacing the Skype, TeamSpeak etc. I think it's a great platform for a software talk as well. There's already servers for other softwares, so this isn't the first one. So I created Discord server for "Affinity products" where users can discuss, ask for help, show their work and request feedback.
     
    Just download the app (Don't use the browser version because it's not as good), install, register your account and log in. After that just click the invite below.
