  1. Absolutely agreed. I am having to learn Illustrator 😞 in order to have editable vector brushes for current vector projects. (+ vector scatter brushes that I can break apart and edit) I'm also having to to back to an ancient version of Xara which has it's own issues. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE affinity but if I'm doing illustrations with bitmaps I find a bitmap app way faster with the added benefit that unscrupulous clients cant do their own edits.
  2. It is simpler for me to stick to one monitor. BTW having 2 monitors with different resolutions completely foxes Designers 'Actual Size' view on either monitor. I end up having to use a ruler on top of my main monitor and tweak the zoom accordingly. Working on one monitor simplifies that too. Glad you are working on it though!
  3. After a bit more fiddling I have found that If I keep all my windows on one monitor I don't get the issue. A shame but at least I can work. Hope this helps someone.
  4. Hmmm. I could be wrong but this seems to happen when I have a second view opened on another monitor.
  5. Yep. I have something similar and am also using a Huion tablet monitor. I went back to 1.6 and can work but I have had the issue again. Only once though. Desktop windows 10 64bit machine. Nvidia gforce680
  6. Ah. My delivery specs are at 150% print size so the designer can tweak the layout without loss of quality. I'm delivering psd files. so I guess I'll just re-size the project once the roughs are approved. Thanks for the reply!
  7. Is there a way to export to PSD at greater than 100%? (Client requirement for print repositioning) Other file formats have this option but I can't find it in the export options. Do I have to re-size the doc? It seems a little odd when working in a vector app.
  8. Drawing with the pencil tool set to use fill is a great idea for creating quick organic shapes (Something I use all the time in Clip Studio Paint) Its major drawback is that it doesn't close those shapes and I have to swap tools in order to do that and then smooth out the result. I find this frustrating and time-consuming. Could we please be able to auto close somehow?
  9. Thanks Mark. Affinity is shaping up very nicely indeed - The CMYK native colour mode is especially something I am lusting after as it has been a real pain not having that in Xara for print work. I very much look forward to your next update.:-)
  10. Forgot to mention that that error happens when using the stylus to draw with.
  11. Testing Affinity Designer on my surface pro 3 I occasionally get straight lines shooting off the canvas. They seem to converge to the same spot off canvas. I'm guessing it has something to do with touch. This was with the demo version which has expired so I can't test further. I thought you would like to know. I guess I will try again after an update.
  12. I have this problem and it is why I decided not to buy. Both apps seem brilliant apart from the free hand drawing tools (The issue is evident on drawing tablets and mouse, Vector and bitmap) For me that is a HUGE issue. I'm really hoping this can be sorted in future versions.
  13. Hi I'm using a Huion GT220 tablet monitor on a windows 10 machine. Drawing freehand with any of the bitmap tools produces a jittery line. Actually that is the same with affinity Designer. There is also a slight delay when starting to draw before the line is drawn and then catches up with the cursor. This issue occurs even when using a mouse. Maybe a feature request for some kind of adjustable smoothing? Huge Regards Dave
