  1. but if adobe have hardlocked their files like this, what they can do? The only thing we can do is to ask stock providers to make pdf compatible files.
  2. indeed, I don't remember exactly where it started but I started working on another, older file that had the same menu items from a brochure I did for the same client and then saved as, then I make the first text box with the style I want to follow and then copy it for the rest of the sections. Then I copy the text from the old artboards that I want and I paste without format to keep the style of the text it replace. I have experienced something similar with old files coming from another version of designer but this time they are made with the current version. Maybe something, somewhere broke and I kept moving this from file to file?
  3. ok this is getting weird now. I have this file that I upload below. It is a typical menu and as of that I have a couple of text fields for each category. They are copies from the first one (if it matters at all) and I have this weird behavior here. When I try to select textbox 1 in the page and I click from it's middle and below (for selecting the text there for example) with the pointer OR the text tool, it go and select the text box below (no3). This only happen with textbox 1 and 3 and not for example with 2 and 4. It also happens in artboard 2 (a copy of the first one with changed content) I also tried to copy the content and paste it in a new textbox, and this behavior remains. It only goes away if I make a new text field and write everything from the start. Any idea? Is it a bug? upload.afdesign
  4. Probably some bug of the moment. I just couldn't select the object directly below this handle when I posted. But now it works as intended. I probably never noticed this handle before and now that for some reason it was extending the selection box of it's object, I did noticed it. So when I was trying to select the object below it, I was selecting the same object. Because the selection area happened to be at the same height of that handle I though that I enabled something.
  5. Hello I probably pressed some hotkey while tried to type without selecting to type first and now above every object I have this thing that also enlarge the selection hitbox and give me some trouble selecting objects. Where can I disable this? Thanks!
  6. That's weird, in windows it paste as vector from illustrator to designer and visa versa.
  7. Hello I tried after a format to go adobe free and got the same problem with EPS files. I suggest all of us to sent emails to the tech support of the stock sites we are working with and ask them to require from uploaders to upload Ai files with PDF compatibility. I will do this for freepik, please do the same everyone. If there are enough emails asking that they will realize that we design in a world where exists many more programs than the ones from adobe. Those EPS files can't open in anything else but the illustrator, and we are so many people working so many programs out there, designer, draw, inkscape, xara, we just need to unite our voices to be heard and not take silly suggestions like to pay the one program they feel comfortable with. After all it is not like we are asking for affinity designer files, we are just asking for files compatible with everything that take little to no effort to be made, just save Ai with a tickbox.
  8. Hello I don't have time to make the video but here is the file with the bugged boxes. I tried in other old files but didn't occurred, maybe this specific file is corrupted? ant-bugged.afdesign
  9. Hello just noticed that if I use the current version to work back on an older file and make a square with stroke, the stroke join miter is turning to bevel join. The problem is not present if I make a new file.
  10. then probably it just need some point of reference that you need to have in both files. Like in my case that I have 4 small boxes on the corners of the file that should be printed with the graphics and also be included in the cut lines file. So the program associate those marks in the cut file, with the mark the cutter see with the laser sensor and then it knows where the cut must be done on paper. Better check the manual on that. There are a lot of possible things that the machine want before it work right. It took me almost a year of trial and error with reading the manual before I get it work. For example in my case I added the cutting marks myself but the machine refused to read them, then noticed in the manual that they have to be 2mm or no deal. Or I had to leave some specific space at the end of the printed paper (as inserted in the cutter) so it can freely move it to the paper feed sensor.
  11. the cutting software will not load the graphics, only the vector lines. This is why I make 2 files, one for print, one for cut. From what you say I guess you have some plotter that print and cut? I don't own one (I print on a laser printer and then cut) but I think I have see a friend of mine that he first print and then give the printer/cutter the order to cut. That is, it roll back the printed paper and start again. Not sure if it can happen at the same time, but workflow wise seem like it will slow down the printer a lot. Print, stop, cut, print, stop, cut, etc. Just the time to switch from print to cut tools it will add up a lot.
  12. I use a summacut d60fxse, I make a 3 layers document in affinity (or illustrator previously and I guess could work in corel too). One layer is for the cutting marks for the cutter laser eye to read (for my cutter must be included in everything, printed and in the cut file), one layer for the graphics and one layer for the cutting lines. I usually work with 3 layers in affinity and then save a PDF from this with the marks and the graphics and a separate one with the cutting lines and the marks (again maybe your cutter have no use for the marks layer), I print the graphics PDF and feed the other PDF to the winplot software of the cutter which read PDF so it show one file with the marks and the cutting lines. Now this is specific to this optical registration mark cutter and the likes of it. I mean it read where it must cut from that marks that are included in both files. So when I send the file to the cutter it tell me to place the "eye" above the printed first mark, then it go on and read the positions of the other marks and make the association with the marks in the cutting lines PDF. Not sure if this is going to work with your cutter software too, but even in a roland GX 24 that I used in the past I never made a single line in the cutter's software (which is terrible) always worked in illustrator or corel and imported the files (or sent directly with the appropriate plug in for the cutter). If you need more details or there is something above you don't understand, feel free to ask anything.
  13. Well it is just a maybe, I have to check what those functions are and if I care about them. But maybe I will end up like you say, and just live with it.
  14. thanks for you reply but isn't this behavior canceling that button of edit all layers then? I mean what is the point to have this selected only to have it canceled because I have one object selected? At least now I know what version will do the trick for me, I have to check the logs to see what I will miss from the current versions.
  15. Hello I had the very last for windows, 1.8.3 I think? Anyway I moved down to 1.8.2 now and just recreated it in it. It seems I was mistaken it wasn't a 1.8.3 problem. I'm in doubt now if it was even different and I'm mistaken. This happen when I am in layer 1 and have at least one object there selected and try to select everything with marquee but the marquee only select objects in that layer. Same with the artboard. If I have something selected in artboard 1 and try to select more things with the marquee from neighboring artboards it only select objects in the selected artoboard. Maybe this is how it is and just now noticed? Here is a gif. It is labels, there is one layer with the graphics and one with the stroke where the machine cut. First I start with no selected object, the marquee select everything just fine. Now if I select one object from the graphic layer and try with marquee again, it only select the objects in the layer the selected object is (same with artboards).
