  1. In some scenarios/uses output to high-res bitmap is sufficient and then you can keep the native Affinity file for further editing if needed. It really depends on the use, I think what you mean it it's no good for your particular use, some people may not have been aware of the Live Perspective tool and may actually find it useful to retain some kind of editability inside Affinity app of sorts.
  2. OK I see, You can effectively retain editability inside the Afffinity app using the Live Filters, but when you export it will rasterize ... So, if your final export format needs to be a scalable vector its a problem. If your highest quality requirement for export format is as a high res bitmap then it's still very useful to retain editability inside the Affinity App if you need to return and edit further...
  3. I have all three apps Publisher, Photo and Designer and I can use the LIVE Perspective tool in Photo and it does NOT rasterize the object. One you have all three apps you can launch Publisher and the Studio Link feature enables you to switch between Affinity Photo and Designer features from within the one app, so you get the best of both worlds. Maybe the person who's calling me a liar is accessing the Perspective tool from the top menu, that will rasterize the object! - However, the LIVE Perspective (note the word LIVE) tool is accessed from the bottom of the Layers panel in Photo and i
  4. The live perspective tool in Affinity Photo is non-destructive. Text, vectors and shapes and their properties are still editable after applying it - access it from the liver filters icon at the bottom of the layers panel in Affinity Photo.
  5. There is a Live Perspective filter in Affinity Photo that can do this... If you haven't already it might be worth purchasing Affinity Photo and Publisher, then you can switch between Photo and Designer with StudioLink and get the best features from both apps combined... You just launch and work from within Publisher and seamlessly switch switch between Designer and Photo ..
  6. It's odd because surely that is one of the primary uses of a perspective tool?
  7. thanks ... I tried converting text to curves but it still reproduces the same glitch
  8. I don't know if this is something I'm doing wrong but applying the live perspective filter then applying a style to text has undesirable results, the style is only applied partially
  9. How do I move too points simultaneously/equally to create a perfectly symmetrical perspective effect.... As far as I can see with the live perspective effect, I can hold down shift to move vertically or horizontally from a single point but not able to move two points simultaneously?
  10. I purchased license for Publisher, Photo & Designer, can I install and use on Macbook & on PC as long as I don;t use at the same time?
  11. How does anyone know, because nobody from Affinity ever comments or lets us know what's going on and if/when it will happen ... Even Adobe are less secretive and better at communication than this ...
  12. Hi, are there any non-destructive free transform & perspective tools in the pipeline for Designer?
  13. I don't see how apps that don't have non destructive free transform, perspective and warp tools can replace Adobe .. When I first came across Designer I got excited as it was the nearest thing I'd seen to Adobe Fireworks, however the lack of non destructive free transform tools is a real problem and we've been waiting a looong time without a peep from the people at Affinity....
  14. You still need the fundamentals and basic transform tools be be found other non-Adobe products available right now, so IMO that is a very lame excuse ... I think Affinity have spread their resources to thin and dropped the ball on this one, iPad versions and the introduction of Publisher have meant that Designer has been neglected.
  15. It was a bit of joke really if you see some of the comments to another post about a Windows only tool 😁 I'll deffo take a look if they come up with a windows version
  16. There's still a window of opportunity for Affinity here .... A hell of a lot of people still use Adobe Fireworks and are extremely disgruntled with Adobe, especially those on Mac who upgrade to Mojave and find out Fireworks will no longer work.... Non-destructive perspective, Free Transform and some core warp tools like arch, arc, fisheye would seal the deal IMO. Workflow and learning curve in Illustrator and Photoshop are steep, clumsy and don't lend themselves well to long term users of an intuitive tool like Fireworks ..... Add these tools to Designer and Adobe could be dropped completely
  17. Hi all, Just to reiterate as this thread is getting hijacked and going off on a tangent, to vote for this feature add a +1 to this new thread here and hopefully Affinity will pay attention:
  18. Any ETA on non destructive free transform, perspective and warp tools like those found illustrator/Photoshop?
  19. Unless its a major release (which I'm sure we would have heard about) I doubt it - Development of Designer seems to have slowed down ....
  20. Since i first started looking at Affinity as alternative to Adobe, I think there has been a lot of concentration on the mobile apps and the launch/development of Publisher. It seems like development of Designer has really slowed down?
  21. Yes, until there's a non destructive free transform, perspective tool no pont in switching from the good old Adobe Fireworks. With free transform and also warp tools there's a very good argument to compoletelt ditch Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator/Firweworks
