  1. There is definetely missing a dialog for setting the strength of the smoothing. Have an imported GPS-Track here with thousends of points - and one click on "smooth curve" reduces them to about 10! The result is lacking any resemblance of the original curve. Currently this tool is utterly useless.
  2. Ahh - MeshWarp Filter! Very cool. This one slipped by... It's the standard mesh warp tool which cuts off the images.
  3. As somebody already mentioned: the text ist the problem. Booleans work flawless (at least on my end), but V2 messes up the text curves. It worked in V1, so they changed something to the worse. You can even create fine working booleans with text in V1, open the file in V2 and it gets messed up.
  4. Well, CLOSE curve means, you change an OPEN shape to a closed one (hence the name). JOINING curves means you MERGE multiple curves together. If you BREAK a closed curve, it will be opened indispensable. The terms are as logic as the could possibly be.
  5. Applying the mesh warp to an object that is larger than the workspace crops the object to its visible part. By the way - I thought warp was nondestructive by now...
  6. I think it's not a problem of the compounds rather of the text conversion. The curves seem to be not closed, although they pretend to be. Trying to fix them does not work because, well, they THINK they are alright already. Maybe it can be broken down to some specific fonts; I didn't test this.
  7. Compounds seem completely broken when using text. Even when text is converted to curves, letters like B or S break the compound completely. Moving the text results in different weird results.
  8. People asking for this (elemetary) feature for 8 Years now... sad to see nothing happens. And probably never will.
  9. I'm really wondering that they irgnore this request for so long. Should be easy to implement a function which simply creates symbols of a given object and order them in a linear, radial or spline driven pattern... Actually, this missing pattern function is the biggest drawback of this otherwise very nice tool.
  10. Oh, got it. It's under "TEXT" - at least, "Tools" and "Text" both start with "T"... Thanks for the hint, btw.
  11. Where do I find this? Help says: "from the tool menu..." - but where is the tool menu?
  12. Well, I installed the substitution font (it's identical to the origninal, it's just a different name) and switched the substitution font from arial (automatic set bey AP) to the one I wanted to use instead. I expect AP to replace the missing font when I am able to select a substitution font, what I did. At least it should change the substition font to the new one. But the fonts in the document don't change. I really had to select every single textbox and change their font manually. I expected the font manager to work the same way as the ressource manager does.
  13. Replacing missing fonts with the font manager does'nt work here. It simply doe'nt apply the changes and keeps saying it's missing the previously used font. Win10
  14. Is there an option to automatically crop a straightened image to its borders?
  15. Hey, We're running three AP-licenses on three different machines in the office. Now we have to replace one machine and therefore to license AP to the new machine. But which one of our three licenses is the one used on the replaced system? Seems to be no way to find that out, isn't it?
  16. I'm still missing the text rulers in Designer. The help says there should be an icon for activating them, but that simply doesn't show up. There also no entry in the view menu.
  17. Strange, I don't get the warning here. But I jaust remembered asking this same question almost two years ago and got the same answer. Sorry for that... Nevertheless there are some strange behaviours when trying to export a mix of masked pixel layers and vector layers to pdf. For now I export the large 40.000px version without transparency und reduced the transparent version to 32.000px. Our customer says it's OK so we got away with it.
  18. Well, that at least is doubled by Affnity.
  19. I tried to export a very large Image (40.000px x 12.000px) als .png and Photo reduced the size to 32767px x 10609px (without warning). Is there a limit to a maximum pixel count in any way? Maybe this is related to the issue I'm having exporting these images as .pdf with transparency. See also: These strange alpha channel issues don't occur in images the width below 32.000px.
  20. Also can't get Photo and Designer installed. Publisher did, mysteriously. Tried as Administrator - no succes, no error warnings, just a stuck Affinitiy installer process to be found in task manager background processes. Had the same issues with the last betas. Setup.log SetupUI.exe.config
  21. I knew I had seen that somewhere before... thanks al lot! Would be nice, to see this part in the context toolbar.
