  1. Hi Merlin. What you are experiencing is certainly unusual! Can you provide as much information about the problem as possible, so that people can assist you? Which version of Windows? Are you using the latest version of Designer? (1.7.2) Does this happen with every file, or just one specific file? Which tool were you using? What action were you performing when it crashed?
  2. Just wait til you try holding Shift and scrolling - your mind will be blown!!!!
  3. Erm... hold Control (on PC, so Command on Mac?) to scroll by 0.1 Should work in every box throughout Affinity suite.
  4. I agree. The three apps already have their own colour (from the icons: Designer = Blue, Photo = Pink, Publisher = Orange) so a tint or even single pixel rule under the panel name would really help.
  5. Here is a very quick tweak of the top left corner of your Aztec Water God image. I drew in a few of the blocks with the pen tool, and put a slightly scaled and rotated copy of the image inside block. Then added a drop shadow and bevel to the blocks to make them pop out of the surface. Only a few minutes work, but shows what could be achieved. Also think that a textured stroke on the black outline would really help bed the illustration onto the stone work. And let me reiterate - I love your work!
  6. @DeyanApp Love your illustrations, but these two aren't quite working for me. The image just doesn't look like it is on the rocks, instead it looks like transparency over a photo. Do you have Affinity Photo? If so, perhaps investigate the Displacement feature… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svaIoTqIWdU If not, perhaps a bit more experimentation with blending modes, or even chopping up the image and displacing it by hand might add some realism?
  7. Affinity doesn't have a Transform Again command. But Method 1 should still work just fine…
  8. @MickRose I still see the same behaviour in Publisher Beta 458. Can you provide an example of it working?
  9. I can think of at least 3 ways to do this, depending upon the specifics of the task. Lets start with the simplest… Select both lines. Select both nodes (with the node tool) Drag one node, and the other will move too. Method 2: use symbols. That way each line is an instance of the symbol. So any change will be made to all copies of the line. Method 3: I need to go try it out - will update if it works!
  10. I believe that the bevel tool in Xara also creates a raster effect (it certainly used to, but could conceivably have changed in a recent version).
  11. The equivalent of the bevel tool, is the bevel layer effect… https://affinity.help/designer/English.lproj/pages/LayerFX/layerFX_bevelEmboss.html Your other features have no implementation in Affinity at this time. However, many of them are planned and all of them are frequently requested!
  12. Definitely agree. A larger thumbnail, a border, something, anything! Compare with Xara's equivalent… The indenting and hierarchy of the tree is so much clearer.
  13. Hello and welcome to the forum. Yes what you ask is possible using Symbols, and Scale with Object on the stroke thickness. 1. Create three square artboards - 100px, 200px, 400px. 2. Draw a square on the smallest artboard, and with it selected click Create in the Symbols panel. 3. Copy your Symbol to the other two artboards, resizing it to fill the artboard. 4. Draw a circle inside the symbol on artboard 100px. 5. Add a 1px stroke, and ensure that Scale with Object is checked. Result: Circles on all artboards, scaled in size and stroke weight (1px, 2px, 4px). See attached file. Symbols Scale Stroke Thickness.afdesign

    Experiencing this bug on Beta - driving me crazy! I thought that it had been fixed? Did it break again, or am I misremembering?
