  1. I have experienced a noticeable text typing lag, when inserting text into a textframe. See sample file attached. There is a textbox at the right side of the page. System: i9-9900X / 64 GB Ram / 3xRTX2080 / Wacom Bamboo Pen+Touch text input lag.afpub
  2. None of the three align modes have any effect in Publisher. Stroke is aligned center, no matter wich mode is selected.

    Wahoo! Linked Files!

    Oh, cool! Thanks!
  4. AP just asked me if I would like to link my images instead of embedding - that' a nice suprise! But I could not find a way to actively force AP to link (or unlink) a file in a Dokument. There seems to be no entry in the help...
  5. It would be nice to be able to change the line properties of more then one objekt(/layer) at the time. Say you have twenty different geometry objects (causing twenty layers) and want to set the line width to the same value or change the line style of all to the same, you normally would select all layers and adjust the settings. Currently it's not possible in AP; I have to select and ajdust every layer one after another. One solution is to grup the layers, but in some cases this won't work; e.g. when they are already grouped with ather layers which have their own styles (e.g. rectangle with outline/no fill and text layer with fill but no outline). Changing color instead works for all in one go.
  6. Things can be so simple... Must have pressed some sort of shortcut. I didn't recognise the opacity setting, only wondered why the color puck stays white, no matter what color I choose. Thanks! But nevertheless: There a two opacitiy settings: color opacity and brush opacity. Shouldn't these two be linked instead adding on another?
  7. I wouldn't calli t a bug because I hadn't this issue before: The brush suddenly stopped working. It doesn't react to color change or anything else and don't paint anymore. Something inside the file seems to be broken. I was able to copy all layers into a new file and everything worked well again. So I deleted all the layers and post the file here. Maybe you can find something that wil help you improve affinity. brush color bug.afphoto
  8. There is also a limitation to PDF-export. The image export seems to be scaled down. When importing to Affninty again, I get the full size of 40.000 pixels, but Details are missing. So I assume the image ist put to certain maximum pixel dimension and the missing pixels are interpolated when re-importing the PDF. But there is no warning about that. I only recognized it because some text elements (no text-objects but already rendered as pixels) of the image were not distinguishable after exporting to PDF.
  9. Well, but why do I have to do that manually? Photo already does the job, instantly correcting itself, saying: "I can, but I don't want to! Do it it yourself, dude! "
  10. So to say, yes. But without the need to rasterize the layer befor using it. And in Designer I was'nt even ablo to find any way to "warp" or perspectively transform a Text layer...
  11. It would be nice to be able not only to scale and shear but also to transform perspectively or free transform Text and Vector objects.
  12. When using the perspective tool, the source grid always features the shape of a rectangle, regardless the form of the object to transform. It would be very helpfull, if the grid would fit the form of the Object, thus makig it much easier to control the transformation. In fact, the grid takes the shape of the object just for an instance but then switches to the rectangular shape.

    png export absolute size issue

    OK, thank you. I also tried open EXR - but Photo crashed just before finishing the job. My first intention was to use PDF (because it's a combination of pixel and Vector layers, both with transparency), but it seems there is the limit at 14.400px...
  14. I have an issue with png export: I'm trying to export a large image (40.000x16.00 px) to png, but the exported file only has 32.767 x 13.106 px. The Image gets scaled (without any warning), regardless what I'm doing to avoid that. Exporting to PDF also fails, there seems to be a limitation to 14.400 px, even if I chose PDF1.7 which should be able to hande up to 75.000 px in height and width. JPEG exports without problems to 40.000 px, but I need the transparency information.
  15. I uploaded the file to your server. I modified the file and also attached an exported PDF. You will find the alpha chanel correct in this version, instead the hole pixel layer got distorted. (I had to remove one extremly complex overlay vector line layer, maybe that one caused the distorsion of only the alpha channel?) But I managed to solve the problem for me: I copied all layers into a new file - now everything is fine and runs smooth. So I think, something in the file got mixed up.
