  1. Are we getting anti aliasing options/presets for text?
  2. still no text anti-aliasing in the latest beta of designer ... seems a glaring ommission to me??? Any particular reason why this feature doesn't seem to get any attention from the developers?
  3. If you could just integrate these two programs into one seamless app then you would have a perfect replacement for Adobe Fireworks. I'm not a fan of switching from one to the other
  4. Is there a simple perspective/skew tool for vectors/bitmaps ? FW.avi
  5. can you do simple perspective/skew effect on bitmaps, shapes and vectors in Designer 17
  6. Hello, is there a separate beta forum for Designer, Photo & Publisher? As long-time Adobe Fireworks users we're may interested in Designer and what new and where its going, finding this forum a bit confusing as we sometimes dont know which app we are talking abut here.
  7. Please add text anti-aliasing options and presets, like smooth, strong, crisp .....
  8. I was hoping that something had changed since that post ... It is an absolute must to have some better text anti-aliasing options. We couldn't replace Fireworks (still our main go to app) or Photoshop with Affinity Designer/Photo without this feature. I think Affinity have done a great job but as a newbie looking at Designer I think they are adding some more advanced vector features whilst overlooking a few key/fundamental features required in everyday use, especially if you are primary concerned with screen/ui/web design mock-ups or creating design elements/components for screen then its a must. I'm not trying to hammer the Affinity devs, just trying to offer constructive feedback, I'll keep my fingers crossed for a future version.
  9. Are there any text anti-aliasing options/presets; crisp, smooth etc ???
  10. Yes, but I think it would very, very, very, very nice to have the Photoshop plug-in compatibility for Designer to save switching between apps
  11. Also, the latest versions of HyperTyle and Plugin Galaxy work as far as I can see....
  12. I'm a Windows users I should probably add ....
  13. If you have 32 bit plugins this may help you if they do NOT work directly in Affinity Photo : https://www.mediachance.com/pluginbridge/ It acts a s a container, I tested it and a it works well inside Affinity Photo .... Also tested this useful plug-in which I bought a few years ago and it seems to work: https://www.prodigitalsoftware.com/StarFilterPro4.html
  14. Yes, I know but it gets tedious switching apps for frequently used tools ... I've been a Fireworks user for 18 years and used to doing everything in the one app. I'm keeping my finger crossed that the clone tool and flood select tool find their way into Designer soon. For me they are more useful and more often used than some of the other bitmap editing tools already in Designer, so they warrant inclusion
  15. Is the Selection Brush the Designers equivalent of the Magic Wand tool? When testing it I coudn't see a way to set the tolerance level ? Any ideas how I do this?
  16. Please add the flood select tool to Designer its a frequently used tool much like the clone tool for touching up and editing bitmaps and I would really prefer it was in Designer rather than having to switch to Photo each time. Our opinion for what its worth after purchasing both Designer and Photo and spending a few weeks now looking at Designer (as a potential replacement for Fireworks which we've used for about 18 years) is we really like what you've done with Designer but we'd prefer not be switching between apps especially for some of the more frequent tasks. Would be more than happy to pay more for Designer with a few more fundamental bitmap tools OR an all-in one app that integrated both Photo and Designer seamlessly.
  17. Hopefully, the devs seem to be doing a good job in adding some advanced features i just hope they don't miss some rudimentary things like this as they can be quite useful.
  18. I have worked out how to do a simple perspective transform with a path in Designer, but how do you do the same with a bitmap? bitmap-perspective.mp4
  19. Yes I have seen the flood select tool, bit of pain though switching to Photo to use frequently used tools like the flood tool and the clone brush
  20. That works but it doesn't reshape the entire bitmap persay, not really what I was looking for but thanks anyway
  21. For me its a basic feature that you s The convert to curves option in Designer is greyed out when I select a bitmap?
  22. Please add a clone tool in Designer - yes I know there is a clone brush in Photo but it is a frequently used tool and would be very useful in Designer rather than having to switch between the two programs frequently. Thank You
  23. Yep it looks a bit limited in Designer, not sure if its any more advanced in Publisher? ... rectangle/squares it works, but complex shapes/vectors no and can not do for bitmaps either which is a miss for me.
  24. Is there a save for web/preview image before export option? I can not see one. In Adobe Fireworks there's a great feature to view a side by side comparison of original image vs optimised, which also includes file size info and its really useful for fine-tuning before exporting for web, similar to the old 'save for web' in Adobe Photoshop.
