  1. Hey there, just realized, that when closing a document that has modifications that are not saved yet, the given "Document is about to close, ..." pop up does not highlight/select the "Yes"-button first and therefore can not quickly be confirmed with the enter/return-key. Even worse, I am accustomed to quickly hit the tabulator key once to highlight the "No"-button and then the return-/enter-key to close documents I don't need anymore. All other software I can think of behaves this way - why doesn't Affinity? This often resulted in unwanted selection of the "Yes"-button and therefore the r
  2. I'm an absolute precision fanatic. And I would expect this from a programm which even lets me zoom into my artwork by 125000000% to be absolute precise. And I would expect it even more if this is a software which lets me use geometric shapes for artwork construction (where "construction" is a better term than "creation"). A software that is based on computations for everything (isn't that the nature of computer programs/software?) should give me absolute precision in my work if I need it... 1+ for @Aammppaa for requesting snap to tangents.
  3. Thanks to your post/forum signature I finally have a proper screenshot tool on windows! Nice!

      No problem. Glad you found it useful! :)

  4. What I think: The constraints function/panel is not enough to use it as a proper UI design tool or to become a proper design tool. What every UI tool lacks is IMO either a proper HTML(Structure)/CSS(Style)/JS(Animation) export, the "truly responsive"-part or a "multiple states in structure and style for a single UI-element"-part. I could live with at least two of the stated features. I will not add invision studio to my toolset if either they only provide it on a monthly/yearly subscription base or they only provide the tool to mac users. As far as I know none of the statements wer
  5. @Wiredframe Nice idea! The tiny areas drive me insane - one of the reasons why I'm not using the constraints panel/function as much as I would like to! @Aammppaa YES YES YES! Absolutely on your side! Especially for the tiny icons in the right bottom corner...
  6. Any updates on an overprint preview? Didn't manage to locate a menue item or button to push in Affinity Designer yet...
  7. I didn't meant you specifically but rather the software in general It think it's totally okay to have it set to "off" when installing the application. But users should decide on their own how much resources they want to make available for their software. Same with Computer Games: Actually not a lot of people will be able to set the graphical settings of a game to "high" or "ultra" - but setting it to "minimum" and have to manually switch it to "ultra" everytime the game starts would not be a proper solution That sounds very promising and I'm very happy if you think this
  8. Well I thought so - but please don't patronize us! I have a huge NAS at hands and if the file size is 500mb or 100mb or 1gb - I simply don't care! It's more important do be able to track the steps in the document. Why not give an option to save history per default - with a specific number of saved steps? e.g. 250steps are saved - if you want more, please alter the given settings. I, for example, would then go to settings and always drag the handle to the highest default steps saved. There could be even a prompt, wenn the total file-size reaches a specific limit on saving - as a warning.
  9. I don't get why a color has to be "logged" as global just to get overprint to work. Why not just an overprint-option per stroke and fill? Also the lack of a overprint-preview makes the process of designing pretty tough with all that exporting and checking in a different software (acrobat).
  10. I have the same problems, see https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/37700-export-persona-adds-unnecessary-clip-path-to-svg/ Integration of SVGO would be awesome and help my workflow a lot!
  11. Hey Chris B, Thanks for the info! Then I'll just wait some time :)
  12. Hey Sean P, thanks for mentioning it! In release v1.5.3.62-b they're imported correctly and can be renamed properly!
  13. Hey there, what I'm missing so far regarding the swatches panel: - Easy renaming workflow of swatches with F2 and Tab, and to go further: something like Renamy would be even more awesome - Select and delete/copy multiple swatches. At least it should be possible to click/select and delete via DEL-key to easliy clear up the swatches - "remove unused colors"-option to quickly clean up a palette - usecase would be mostly the the document-related palettes - Convert already added swatches to Global/Spot-Colors - Ability to easily set spot-color-name the same as swatch-name and vice versa
  14. Hey again! Just downloaded the Customer Beta and the problem on still persists. Now the question: Log this in this thread or head over to the Beta Support Forum? Greetings, Johannes
  15. Hey there, I always forget to check the "Save History File with Document" after creating a new one. I understand, that not everybody wants to save the history by default, because it would make a lot of files a lot larger (I guess so?). But for others it would be nice to have a Checkbox in the (User-)Settings to get the history saved with the document by default when saving a document. Perhaps it would even be possible, to have a "per document"-exception-setting. Greetings, Johannes
  16. Hey there, Affinity Designer v1.5.2.58 When renaming colors in the Swatch-Panel, a complete different/wrong color get's renamed. Could not get the pattern why which color get's renamed. See attached GIF. Greetings, Johannes
  17. Hey there, Related: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/37601-ad-export-persona-layer-is-exported/ Exactly: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/37601-ad-export-persona-layer-is-exported/?p=186472 This does - in my eyes - not make real sense, because the slices for every artboard gets created anyway by default. Please change the indicator-behaviour to appear on the Layers-Panel only when in the Slices-Panel the checkbox for the related slices is checked and it actually gets exported. Greetings, Johannes
  18. Related: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/37597-ad-export-persona-item-has-duplicate-paths/ Change the message of the error icon to the specific error: If the artboard was named twice the same, say e.g. "The Artboard/Path-Name is used multiple times". The actual message ("The Item has duplicate Paths") indicates Paths that are exactly the same (not only the name) and do overlap or such thing. Greetings, Johannes
  19. Hey there, Affinity Designer: Although in Slices the checkbox Export Selected of the related arboard is NOT checked, the artboard gets an icon that indicates that the artboard gets exported in the Layers panel. Actually the artboard does NOT export. (See Attachments) Greetings, Johannes
  20. Hey there, Affinity Designer: When switching to export persona I get the small Attention-Icon that says: "This item has duplicate paths" although the artboard is empty and there are no paths. In the attached screenshot you can see, that two artboards above - which are also completely empty - don't get the error. Greetings, Johannes
  21. A lot of true stuff I didn't thought about. But to be honest: I read multiple solutions to some problems now - just to realize soon afterwards, that it was just for AD when I was searching for a solution in AP. Confuzing Interwebz! Because most of the times, it is very very specific to a feature only on program has at the moment.
  22. Well, that's exactly what I requested ;) Or do you mean to have complete seperated main forums?
  23. Hey there, it would be nice to have a prefilled template for reporting bugs when clicking the Start a new Topic button in the related subforums. The people then have a rough guide to pass the right/better information you (Serif) need to solve the described bug. It is a very common pattern used across software support forums that are heavily customer driven. E.g., I remember last time when reporting bug I forgot to mention the version of AD. This could've been helpful in the first place. Greetings, Johannes
  24. Hey there, I think it would be useful to have different subforums for bugreporting for each software. At the moment, e.g. bugs for AD and AP are both reported in one subforum although there are even subforums for Bugs on Windows and Bugs on Mac. One level more would give a more clear/tidy overview. Greetings, Johannes.
