  1. OK, "duh", I guess. I found the numeric "skew" value (assuming that's what the "S" stands for in the Transform palette. I don't know why searching for "Skew" in the help doesn't take me there, but when I saw the rotation value and the little empty "S" value and started changing it, I was happy. (Suggestion for modification of the help system: there's nothing wrong with calling it "shear", lol, but I didn't think of that. Wouldn't it be nice if searching the help led me here anyway if I'm the kind of guy who still can't remember not to order a "small" coffee at Starbucks?)
  2. Thought I'd check in on this again. Looks like still no progress? Even a simple "skew" like we had in "Illustrator '88" would be a way to "fake it". There are so many advanced path manipulation functions that are tremendously useful that are already in Designer. I love the product, and this function isn't an everyday need, but whenever there is a need for it, there's just no substitute (other than tedious hand-manipulation of curves to fake it that never comes out quite right).

    Mail Merge

    I also agree with JoeSim - and for the same reasons. I'm really liking Affinity Publisher. Mailmerge would be the final "must" feature for me.

    Photo persona not working

    It sounds as if this answers my question as well. Just updated Designer and it still didn't work, nor could I directly open a Publisher file within Designer. Really would have liked being able to export web content.
  5. While placing a photo into a small frame at a high zoom level, the program bailed out and the file became unrecoverable. I have since seen this problem happen a couple more times. Zooming in works well but seems to interfere with things for some reason. I noticed the printing problem someone else remarked about. Thankfully, the suggested solution of resetting the zoom view to 100% worked well, but initially the program acted as if there was nothing to print. (Saved the crash log, if that helps:) crashreport.txt
  6. Is there a way to distort vector artwork along a defined shape? Is there a way to simulate tilting it backward into space, skew or warp the artwork?
