  1. You talked mostly about tablets, but remember modern Chromebooks run Android apps too. That would open up a range of laptops with keyboard / mouse built-in. I realize the following would be a whole new beast, but if Affinity could merge the desktop and tablet interface into a duel switching app for hybrid tablets like the Microsoft Surface on Windows and the wide variety of devices running Android, they could have quite the package.
  2. I get the impression from Serif that they are primarily targeting the multi-page brochure market and not long form books. At least initially. You generally need PDFs and not eBooks for that. I'm hoping version 2 will expand Publishers target audience to long form books, and include ePub support in the process.
  3. Now we even have the Photoshop online beta offering crop to selection. https://photoshop.adobe.com/
  4. Thanks the converted font works. Any idea what all the other Windows app are doing differently from Affinity apps that allowed them to work with the original? I've tried half a dozen different apps which all work. Is this a bug in the Affinity apps or something more quirky?
  5. Using Windows 10, I was looking for a Goodwrench logo style font. Found one called Badwrench, but it doesn't display properly in any of the Affinity apps. All three Affinity apps appear to display Ariel (or something similar) when Badwrench is selected. http://www.nnracing.com/filelibrary.asp?fileid=23280 Photoshop, Microsoft Word, and Libreoffice Writer display it properly. Does anyone know what the problem might be?
  6. Not quite the same as crop to selection though, if you have a non-square selection.
  7. What is the marketshare on Pi OS? I mean I have seven Raspberry Pi hardware units, but they are all running a digital signage OS instead of a desktop environment. I wonder, out of the 35 million total Raspberry Pi hardware units sold worldwide, do the units running a desktop environment come anywhere close to the 30+ million Android tablets sold each year. Samsung alone shipped almost 60 million units during 2020 and 2021 combined. That's not counting Lenovo and the dozens of off-brands being sold like Huawei or Walmart's Onn.
  8. As if this feature request forum is for their planning rather than our own amusement.
  9. That might be the way to go IF there is a lot of compatibility issues (leading to tech support hassles) or IF they could get Samsung to foot the bill in exchange for exclusivity. Otherwise they would be shooting themselves in the foot by shunning half the market from the purchase. How many Samsung Tabs are sold compared to all manufactures combined from Google, Asus, Acer, nVidia, Lenovo, Toshiba, Onn, Huawei, Xiaomi, and dozens more regional brands from around the world.
  10. Depends on how good of a workaround you are needing. You can export to PDF and then use Calibre to convert the PDF to EPUB. It creates a usable EPUB, but with poor fit and finish. If the final product isn't too bad you might can go in and clean it up with the Sigil application.
  11. It is the SVG file from here. https://stock.adobe.com/images/there-s-no-business-like-show-business/360512924 Not sure we can legally share that on here.
  12. Hi, I was wondering if there was a proper method a shape like the following two joined animals. If I select all the nodes at the feet and use the break curve command it creates a bunch of extra shapes inside the holes between the feet, and also changes the length of the legs and screws up the back of the lower animal. When I try to merge those shapes with the upper animal to punch out holes for the legs again the legs get cut off higher than the back of the lower animal. Meanwhile the back of the lower animal gets an extra triangle above it's back that I can't figure out how to get rid of. I'm assuming I've gone in the wrong direction here and there is a better way of splitting an object.
