  1. It is helpful to position the tools differently for different personas. At present the tools position is universal across persona, so it is possible to loose them behind other UI panels. Could each persona remember where the tools are? And include this in Studio Preset saves? Thanks.
  2. Was looking at the new Select Same functionality today and noticed that Select Same > Name is not available. This would be very handy! Could it be added? Thanks.
  3. 2. I accidentally discovered that this is possible already. Select the bitmap and Convert to Curves. Results in a rectangle with the original bitmap as a fill.
  4. This is a known bug in the current betas when rotating rectangles. Has been reported, so hopefully will get fixed in the next release.
  5. Hi @MattP per object anti-aliasing looks like good progress. Are we any closer to improved aliasing options for text? See this post from 2015 that you participated in. Thanks.
  6. Lining up guides with nodes works so long as you have the shape selected, and Snap to Nodes of Selected Curves enabled in the node tool.
  7. Hi @nicolefally, welcome to the forum. What you are seeing is called 'colour decontamination'. It is mentioned in the help here... https://affinity.help/photo/English.lproj/pages/Selections/selections_refine.html Specifically... Selection and Mask are ideal when applying adjustments and filters after refining the selection area. New layer and New layer with mask are suited to cutting out and compositing; colour 'decontamination' is also used for achieving high-quality cut-out results. If you want a mask without colour decontamination, then duplicate the layer, then refine > mask. Hope this helps!
  8. Drawing a rectangle along a line, by holding right mouse as I drag, is causing major graphical glitches.
  9. I don't have Illustrator, but Merge sounds a lot like Affinify's Divide?
  10. The Mac beta mentions Pattern Layers. Are these not in the Windows version yet, or am I looking in the wrong place?
  11. 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
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
