    Aammppaa got a reaction from R C-R in Selecting 'component' curves?   
    There is currently no short convenient way to do what you are asking.
    The workarounds in earlier posts are useful to know, but dragging a freehand lasso (or clicking a polygon lasso) is the tool that is available for now.
    Wrong wrong wrong - ignore all that!
    Select a node on the inner circle of the O and hit Ctrl+A to select all the inner nodes.
    A second press of Ctrl+A will select all the nodes of the entire shape.

    Aammppaa got a reaction from Barbasol in Publisher-Rearrange pages without dragging?   
    If you expand the Pages panel to fill the whole screen it will list the pages as a grid (rather than a single column). On my modest screen I can view ~130 pages with medium size thumbnails.
    That should make all but the biggest moves doable without scrolling.
    Unfortunately there seems to be a bug: if you switch to small page thumbnails they are always shown as a list, even if the panel is wide enough to show multiple columns.
    Reported here…

    Hi Dave Vector,

    Unfortunately this is a known issue that is with development - it treats the top left position of the whole document as to where the grid snapping occurs, and not how its been displayed. I'll get it bumped with development.

    Have you updated to the latest version of Designer (1.7.1.404)?
    Have you run the Designer, opened a file, and exited at least once?
    Try deleting the .appinfo files from C:\ProgramData\Affinity\Common\1.0\appinfo\Release

    Aammppaa reacted to MikeMo in Compound Vector Masks (1.7 update)   
    My suggestion would be to allow for editing of Compound Vector Masks without having to un-nest them first or destructively converting to curves.
    Sadly, the lack of this feature alone is enough to stop me from using A.Designer for any commercial work.
     
    This suggestion is to update an older request that I made which has now been put in the warehouse as I fear it may be lost to the sands of time.

    Aammppaa reacted to nezumi in APhoto and FontBase, problem activating fonts   
    I am using NexusFont for years - everything works great. In fact 1.7 works even better then before. In previous version I had to close and re-open project if I have changed font set inside of font manager. Now it updates on the fly.
    Just in case you can check NexusFont too.

    Aammppaa reacted to ChrisSmere in Lille - Tramway and Métro Transit Map   
    Actually, I don't know. Maybe because my crazy brain needed some way of relaxing itself.  
     I don't have counted them all yet but I guess it must be over 100 now.
    This one took my 6 hours (plus/minus 30 minutes). Normally it depends on my motivation - so it could be a couple of hours or even months. It's really hard to say.
    Just a little bit of research - I only need to confirm that the transit network is interesting enough ("speaks to me") that means it has to have a nice pattern to transform into a diagram.
    The snapping tool, the grids, global colors and now finally the multiple stroke tool are my best friends - besides the pen tool of course - that's basically all I need. What's still quite anoying is the smybol tool as it looses linking wihtout reason - would  love to use it but not in this unstable state.
    I do use very different grids - every city has it's own approach. I like 60° grids but normally go with a square grid. This map started with a square grid which I finally dismissed in favor of a 60° one (as you can see).
    I merely show them on my social media profiles (fb, insta, twitter, here in the forum, bebance etc.). Have never really printed any of them. And never have sent them to the appropriate authorities. Maybe I should... but sometimes I give pixel versions to people asking for them on social media. 
     
    Hope all your questions are answered properly, @Aammppaa :-) if there are any further question I'd be happy to answer them too!

    Aammppaa got a reaction from ChrisSmere in Lille - Tramway and Métro Transit Map   
    I don't know why I enjoy these as much as I do!
    Why did you start doing this? How many have you done? How long does a map like this take? What are the different stages? I guess there is some research and planning before you even hit Affinity Designer? What tools in Affinity make this easy / difficult? Do you work on a grid? Is it square or do you need custom angles? What do you do with the finished maps? Nothing / Print them (really big?) / Send them to the appropriate authority? Feel free to answer all / some / none of the above

    Aammppaa reacted to ChrisSmere in Lille - Tramway and Métro Transit Map   
    Hello again :-)
     
    I do transit maps (diagrams) for fun in my spare time to relax.
     
    Here is another one of my recent works: a Lille (France) Tramway and Métro system map in my own interpretation (unofficial of course). I have included railways and their stations as well.
     

     
    The whole map is entirely done with Affinity Designer. 
    If you have any thoughts on it or feedack this is much appreciated.
     
    Have a great day/night!

    Aammppaa got a reaction from fde101 in Line length   
    Hmm... fde101 don't think you are correct about this.
    Usually you can use the width value in the Transform panel to set the length of a horizontal line (or height for vertical). But there is no way to easily set the length of a diagonal line.
    So in isometric mode this doesn't really work either since 2 planes are generally on the diagonal.

    Aammppaa got a reaction from Petar Petrenko in (Object)Styles randomly changing its values   
    Wow - this now works! From memory and according to previous discussions it used not to make any difference.
    So long as you remember to turn on Scale with Object at the time of creating the Style it will indeed apply without rescaling.
    However…
    this is pretty counter intuitive - I have to turn on scaling in order to prevent scaling?! the option is off by default so most users will make the mistake. the option can't be enabled in the style after creation, as there is no way to edit a style. the option can't be enabled on the target objects, as that will only scale on subsequent transforms.

    Aammppaa reacted to stmartin in UI inconsistency   
    In the text panel alone there can be found two different icons for linking values. And in the transformation panel there is another variation to the icon. Also I did not recognise the icon next to the word gutter as a button. See screenshot attached.

    Aammppaa got a reaction from Alfred in Help with sparks and fire and smoke   
    Fire is generally bright - often very bright! Your fire falls in the mid range of values in your image.
    Fire is also a light source, so to paint it realistically you need to light everything that the fire would illuminate, and cast shadows across the object too.
    Fire is also translucent, as is smoke.
    Painting realistic fire is very hard!
    Painting realistic fire into a daylight photo of a complex subject like a deer is very very hard!
