  1. It's about June 2020… has implementing this seemingly simple feature been considered at all yet?
  2. Hello, I've noticed the Affinity suite programs lack a dedicated text ending of edit mode button (not sure what to really call this)… for example when editing text, I have to either press the ESC key every time to get out of editing mode, select the move tool directly from the tools bar or select another text box to edit. (pressing the move tool shortcut key while in editing mode will simple input the "V" character) Something like what Photoshop has works really well and it's more of a intentional action and purposeful function when using a dedicated button on the control bar made specifi
  3. Hi, is there a way to move an artistic text or text frame object while it's still in editing mode (while text editing cursor still active inside the box), there are times I do not want to press escape or select the move tool while editing text and then have to select the text tool yet again to continue editing, it seems like another extra step to moving in and out quickly while editing many text objects while simultaneously repositioning (e.g. many comic book speech bubbles on a page project), I just want to reposition the text object quickly elsewhere on the artboard and continue typing from
  4. Thank for all the suggestions, while using the shift, option keys, etc. does help shortcut to smaller values faster for certain uses. I suppose like most using Publisher for the print world increments taking actual physical rulers of measurements into account would be ideal, whereas yes for American units, 1/8" (or 1/16") steps are quite common, centimeters, etc. I'd imagine the metric system units could be approached in a similar manner regarding common divisions.
  5. I forgot to include, same recommendation as mentioned but of course I am not only referring to just inches, same idea with other units of measure perhaps 3mm for millimeters, etc.
  6. Hello… I enjoy using the arrow keys to quickly jump numbers on the value fields… however to pick one example, with Publisher the bleed setting default increments for setting up bleed using the keyboard arrows jump complete inches at a time, MOST of the time it's quite unrealistic for bleeds to be whole inch increments unless possibly one is creating gigantic billboard art or something related. I'd suggest 1/8" increments for a more truer default to be more in tune to how most of the printing industry set their bleeds sizes. This would speed up setup for very keyboard oriented people like
  7. I am using AP latest app store version 1.6.7… when multiple files are opened I noticed that one cannot access other opened documents through the "Window" menu as it only lists the single current tab in focus, but when going into separated mode, it functions normal as expect, going to the "Window" menu lists all the opened document to access. Yes when using tabbed mode interface, once can simply click the tab itself to access the opened file, however some of us prefer the listed option through the "Window" menu to navigate and it can be unnecessarily cumbersome to switch over to separated
  8. Thank you Chris, Used the link and zip file uploaded. Hopefully the cause of the crashing will be quickly fixed. IMG_0913-hdr.dng.zip
  9. Hello, Using AP on Mac OS 10.12.1 Sierra. AP version 1.5.1 (Beta 1). Attempting to open a RAW DNG that crashes the App Store version and latest beta. Single file upload limit is 20mb, my file zipped is 41.4mb, how can I attach the file for your review? Thank you.
  10. One feature I use extensively with InDesign is the overall graphic preview while resizing an image frame which is very useful for knowing on the fly how much to shrink or expand the frame or to get an idea of how much clipping is on the image without having to resize everything out. It works by holding down the handles a second longer to activate that mode. Has something like this already been considered for Publisher? If not, I'd like to at least put it out there as a possible feature that I know many would love.
  11. Has there been discussion/progress on implementing simple 1 Bit color mode for graphics within Photo? For now, pretty much have to stick with PS in order to convert my art to this mode, as of the latest version of Photo, I'm still quite shocked this is still missing, particularly for when Publisher comes out, using these graphics for certain kinds of graphics are smaller (low memory resource) and great for colorizing the graphic within the page-layout app itself as InDesign and Quark have had for years. Thank you
  12. Would love a way to auto import or have an option for immediately bringing in global swatches into or from an embedded image for a current working open file without having to do the whole export/import/clipboard palette workaround. Thanks!
  13. Hello, When exporting this logo to EPS or PDF (haven't tried all formats), I'm losing a piece of the dash detail from the source file. Source file attached too. AD 1.5.1 Thank you SJI Logo Final.afdesign
  14. In the attached screen animation it shows a brush with 100% opacity and hardness yet the brush perimeter on the outer line is not matched up with the brush's true edge which makes it very hard to line up on the object when trying to paint over it… seems the calibration is off. This is based from the AP beta 1.5.0 Beta 6. Thank you.
  15. With AP… when selecting the object on a layer, then clicking the mask button, the mask thumbnail itself is not shown as selected (bouble border overlay), yet when selecting a brush and starting to brush on the mask, it works immediately. For the user it's does not appear clearly that the mask layer is ready to paint over right after it's created, because usually a selected layer thumbnail would have the extra white border over it. When creating a mask, would it be better that the white border overlay on the thumbnail be auto-selected by default? Is this by design?
  16. Super Vectorizer is how I've been getting by, but it's only available from the Mac app store (meaning OSX only)… it's $20, but stupidly easy to use and FAST… almost real-time rendering and very accurate. https://itunes.apple.com/app/id704139979
  17. I am wondering if any further improvements are planned for the crop tool? One trick I enjoyed from PS is proportionally cropping by holding the "alt" key, I noticed that as of betas 1.5.x that this is still not possible. Hopefully the gif demonstrates what I am referring to. Thanks
  18. Hello, I am trying to open a PDF as currently cropped and saved as a raster directly through Photo or Designer, but it doesn't seem to provide that option with the open dialog options, am I missing something? Thank you
  19. Thank you ABC! That did the trick, basically to affect only the stroke or just the fill to get the see-through effect, the workaround is to treat the gradient tool as if were also transparency tool. It would be great if the "Context" dropdown box part of the gradient tool was also a native option with the transparency tool. Another thing that would be such a timesaver without having to mess with nodes in the gradient too… although admittingly the gradient tool method offers more control. Cheers
  20. Is there a way to use the transparency tool to only apply on the fill or just the stroke of the object… I cannot seem to find a checkbox or setting for this to only affect a particular attribute. Thanks!
  21. I've always wondered why don't any programs implement a feature where the guidelines inverse their colors over an object to guarantee that they will be seen, kinda like the same way when text is highlighted and it auto reverses it's colors.
  22. +1 this, it's a constant extra step for me, a dedicated function would be such a boost.
  23. Hello, Latest beta 10 is unable to open PSD files without with an extension to the filename. Thank you
  24. I just tested this as of latest beta 1.5 (b2)… does not work yet, although quickly accessing the guides manager this way would be very useful. May I add that it would also be very useful to include some way to make the guideline opposite orientation (e.g. vertical to hortizontal) by holding down a key (option?) while dragging into a document in real time. This would save some effort having to avoid re-dragging into canvas via opposing ruler side.
  25. +1 I deal with a lot if instances where I NEED to transfer assets between grayscale documents and every now and then, a preflight might fail because something got through that was not 100% black. This would save so much time and it's nice to have one less thing top worry about in an art production workflow. Perhaps adding an option for a "hard" grayscale mode that forces objects to that color mode or something like it?
