  1. Exactly.
    Every day I work in Affinity programs and it seems to me that it is a constant struggle with various adversities.
    Such is the setting of exports, bleeds in artbords, the inability to choose new standard sizes, eg A4 artbords, copying effects and styles, the inability to print the selected item on the A4 sheet in the place where the item is located, etc.

  2. It would be enough to add the Pages panel to the Designer, the same as in the Publisher in the Desiger Persona module. Then, in addition to browsing the pages, you would be able to add and copy pages in Designer.
    Technically, no problem, just some psychological barrier from Serif.

  3. If you create a text frame with text in Publisher and give it the background color and frame color and copy it to Designer, Designer will display everything correctly, but obviously you will not be able to change the background and frame. So Designer can correctly interpret these functions, so just put a piece of code from Publisher into Designer and that's all. However, Serif stubbornly does not want to do it?
    I wrote about it in other posts. But as I said, Serif does not intend to introduce this function to Designer. The question is why?
    To buy a publisher for strength? I will buy it anyway. Why change between programs to change the background color of a text frame? I still think that does not make sense.

  4. Serif deliberately removed the ability to change the background color and edge of the text frame to do so in the Publisher.
    So you need to make any changes in this second program.
    Of course, this is pointless and has been reported many times before, so that it is possible to do these changes in Designer.
    Even for a moment in a few earlier Designer Beta there was an inactive icon of the text frame. It seemed that this function would remain in Designer.

    But Serif officially said it would not be available in Designer.


  5. When it comes to snapping, I've just discovered that snapping objects and slides works if we create a new project in But it will not work if in we open a file created in earlier versions of Beta.
    That's why today I was so tired when making changes to the file with the leaflet made a month ago.

    I have repeatedly suggested what should be changed or added to Affinity so that the program meets the basic tasks for smooth and trouble-free work before adding thousands of new products.
    If now, at the beginning of the creation of this program, it will not be added, I do not think it has ever been added.
    Yesterday I read somewhere on the forum post from 2016 that Serif reads all the suggestions and requests but enter but they can not enter it because it has its own guidelines. So I'll probably look at this forum again in about 3 years. Maybe something will change in this matter.
    I run an advertising company and use Affinity programs to work throughout the day. it is not a fun program after dinner for relaxation or painting in the evening. I need a stable program. I have been working on CorelDraw on all its versions for 26 years. Now the new CorelDraw 2019 has been released. It is much, much more expensive than Affinity. I would like to pay the money to Serif very much, but the pace of development is so slow that I would have to close the company to see the full version of 1.7 then 1.8, maybe even 1.9 to 2.0. At this rate, maybe in three years. Yes I know, CorelDraw is 30 years old and Affinity 5 years, but from five it is still 1.0 version ...

  6. To speed up the export of selected items, Affinity should automatically select the Selection without background option.

    In 99%, if I have selected objects to export it with the intention of just exporting those objects.

    And now, every time I have to manually select the Selection without ... option or at least the program should remember the last selected option.


  7. You have to regulate the operation of numeric parameters with the mouse.
    On the attached gif it can be seen that after hovering the mouse on, for example, the x: and the left mouse click button, moving the left and right changes the next to the digital parameter, but it does not work with the Opacity name in the Swatches panel and with the Fill Opacity name: in the Effects panel.
    Moving on the Width name does not work: in the Stroke panel.

    There are several more places in the Affinity interface where, by moving the mouse left and right, the digital parameters do not change.

    This needs to be improved as soon as possible, because more and more amendments and ideas are being made, and in the end, all these important matters will be omitted.


  8. I know that I can design in Publisher, if there is no other way, but it's easier for me to do projects in Designer.
    Unless in the final version it will be possible to switch to the Persona Publisher mode and there will be a mode for handling text frames (left drawing), without entering the Publisher program (right figure).
    Nobody knows so far, apart from Serif.


  9. I also suggest adding to the top menu bar with icons 4 additional icons: New, Open, Print, Place, Export.
    I know you can use keyboard shortcuts, I use them, but it would be great if it was possible to add these icons to the bar.
    In general, the icons in the top bar could be a bit smaller so that more of them can fit horizontally.
    For example, I place a screen scan from CorelDraw.
    In the upper three bars there is a large number of icons of frequently used functions.
    I would also like to be able to add more icons in Affinity programs.



  10. Przykład ulepszonego panelu Kolor.
    Sugerowałbym ulepszenie panelu Kolor.
    Najlepiej oddzielić ikony obrysu i wypełnienia i powiększyć ikonę - bez jej wypełniania. Niewypełniona ikona jest teraz najmniejszym elementem interfejsu w programie. Trzeba bardzo się starać podczas projektowania, aby trafić myszką w tym małym miejscu, aby pozbyć się wypełnienia.
    W wielu postach ten pomysł był cytowany, ale wciąż bez skutku. Nie wspominając już o tym, że zasugerowano, że kolor obiektu został przesłany lewym przyciskiem myszy, a kolor konturu - prawy przycisk myszy - rozwiązany w CorelDraw.

    Jeśli byłby jeszcze dodany do informacji o składzie kolorów panelu w RGB i CMYK, byłoby świetnie. Możesz również rozdzielić suwaki Krycie i Szum.

    Panel Kolor był wyższy tylko o 40 pikseli.

    Te niewielkie zmiany w panelu Kolor naprawdę pomogą w codziennej pracy w trzech programach Affinity. Chociaż 99% jestem pewien, że Serif nie wprowadzi tych zmian.




  11. When selecting the fill and outline color and determining the degree of transparency, the percentage of transparency is not shown.

    You must add this information.
    The faster the Serif makes these fixes, the better. New cool features are being added all the time and it will be harder and harder to make such small fixes, which however make work in Affinity easier.
