  1. You are only snapping to a Candidate List of 6 items. I am guessing that the boxes where snapping is not occurring are not Candidates, therefore the behaviour you are seeing is correct. Enabling Show snapping candidates will confirm this as they will be highlighted in purple. You can read about Candidates here https://affinity.help/designer/English.lproj/pages/DesignAids/snapping.html
  2. Has been like this in every version of Affinity. It is odd, and unlike any other piece of software that I use, but doesn't seem to break anything!
  3. I don't see why it wouldn't work. But performance across the network will surely be slower than a local HD or SSD. Also, you may get into trouble if connection to the NAS is lost as Affinity will no longer have access to the file. I am not sure how gracefully Affinity handles that situation. --- Update… There is a fair amount of discussion on the forum about cloud/network storage.
  4. Look at Power Duplicate… https://affinity.help/designer/en-US.lproj/index.html?page=pages/ObjectControl/duplicate.html?title=Duplicating objects https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/tutorials/designer/desktop/video/301626751/ Drawing a grid only takes a few seconds.
  5. Alignment handles have been in Affinity since 1.7 (well over a year). I suggest you try them - you may find they meet your needs.
  6. I have all 3 apps installed, in both retail and beta versions. Keeping 6 copies of everything in sync is simply ridiculous!
  7. If you buy direct from Serif they offer a 14 day no questions asked, refund policy - which should give you plenty of time to experiment and get a refund if things don't work out for you. See https://store.serif.com/en-gb/help/
  8. Hi Lexi, and welcome to the forum. Uncheck Preferences > User Interface > Show Lines in points The forum seems to be playing up today. I couldn't add an image either. Am sure it will be fixed soon!
  9. The issue is with your geometry not how Affinity is adding the shapes. Switch to Outline view Zoom in real close to the highlighted node and you will see it is not joined and is misaligned. Search for other nodes with problems. Perhaps the issue is with how you created the nodes in the first place?
  10. The release notes for the latest Beta (https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/112354-affinity-designer-windows-customer-beta-184647/ ) say… Fixed crash with Appearance panel after using Ctrl+Z on vector brush input So I am pretty confident the issue has been solved. I don't think you need to report any more than you've already done. I've been using Designer for several years now, and these crashing bugs are few and far between in my experience. I think you just got unlucky!
  11. Hi @oddballAstronomer and welcome to the forum, I think you may have discovered a variant of a bug I reported a few weeks back… I have just tried both your process and the one I originally described, in the latest bets and both worked just fine. At the current rate I would imagine 1.8.4 will be released within a few weeks, or you could use the beta now. It will install in parallel with the retail edition.
  12. This assumes that you own all three apps. If a customer only owns Publisher and Designer then it is reasonable that they might want to use the Pixel persona from Designer - which at present means using Edit in Designer.
  13. The bottom left corner in your file is a Smooth node, so is already curved (zoom in really close and you will see it) - therefore it can't have the Corner tool applied. If you convert it to a Sharp node (by Alt + Click on the two curve handles to delete them) then the curve tool works as expected. I guess the real question is how you made the square which resulted in a Smooth node at that corner?
  14. Create a Textured Image Brush should keep colours. Are you sure you didn't create a Textured Intensity Brush by mistake? From the help… New Textured Intensity Brush—creates a brush stroke based on the opacity values of a raster image. In the pop-up dialog, navigate to and select a file, and click Open.
