Paekke reacted to mac_heibu in Let's be honest
Yes, absolutely! Especially in a beta(!) of version 1(!!)
Just dream on!
And believe me: I am working in print industries for decades, and all, you think is absolutely necessary in a pre version one release was possible times ago without any special command/feature within an application. It simply requires a certain amount of work and creativity.
Understand me correctly: I don’t say, these feaures are unnecessary. But I say, expecting them in a version one of a new publisher is unworldly. And saying, it is not possible to use the app („… I can’t print a single thing!“) is …
Paekke reacted to Mark Ingram in Sneak peeks for 1.7
1. You're assuming that we work the same way that you work. You're also assuming that your way is best.
2. You seem to be the odd one out here.
3. Designer is a vector drawing and illustration application - not a technical drawing application. I'm sorry that it doesn't have the features that you require, so you should probably look into getting a refund and / or using a different piece of software for your needs.
I've spent enough time trying to point out that we're trying to help here, but as you're just ranting about our methods, and not bringing anything constructive to the discussion, I'll be switching back to helping other customers on the forum.
Paekke reacted to MattP in Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview
I just want to bring this post back to the top and dwell on it for a little while... You know I can't help but say a little too much most of the time, but I've been told in no uncertain terms that I'm not allowed to confirm or deny the function of these buttons... So I was trying to think what I could say about the subject, so: They're not there by accident. They're not placeholders. They're awesome. Nobody else offers this, nor could they.
So my question to you is: What do you think they do?
Paekke reacted to TonyB in Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview
Affinity Publisher sneak peek! Just to prove we're not making the whole thing up, check out this early build of our DTP app. Still lots of perfecting to do; expect the beta next summer. Enjoy.
Update: I think we have answered all the questions we can about Publisher before the beta starts. Hopefully the public beta will answer any remaining questions when it starts at the end of August.
This thread is now locked.

Paekke reacted to TonyB in Affinity Designer feature roadmap
Please find below the current feature roadmap for Affinity Designer. The list is a selection of features from our own internal roadmap we would like to share with our users. If a feature you would like isn't on the list then feel free to create a new post so everyone can discuss it. We read all the feature suggestions and consider each one very carefully.
The idea is the list will never get longer. As we complete and release features then we will replace those features with new ones.
-Phase II transparency flattener
-Bleed area guides
Illustration & Design
-Mesh fill tool
-Mesh warp/distort tool
-Calligraphic line styles
-Arrow head line styles
-Export slices previews with actual export data
-Text features including Bullets and Numbering
-Multiple Effects/Fills/Strokes per shape
-Convert Pixel selection to Vector shape
Please feel free to ask questions about the features on the list but don't post new feature requests in this thread, just create a new thread.
Paekke reacted to paolo.limoncelli in [UPDATED!] DAUB Essentials for Affinity Designer - 114 Tools and 40 Textures
Updated with 24 new tools!
These are 16bit capable, this means that if you want to perform further manipulations to your rasterised layers, these will be much more precise and tones will be smoother.
Paekke reacted to Richard S. in List of Resources.
Just an idea, but would it make sense for staff to create a sticky thread, which basically acts as a list of all resources shared by members?
The list could display each contributing member's name, followed by the list of their resources, or alternatively, listed by type of resource (Macros / Brushes) etc.
This would prevent having to scroll down through potentially hundreds of separate threads.
The users could still post their specific threads here, but the top thread could be made sticky - listing them all.
All the users / creators would need to do would be to request that their resource gets added to the list.
If each member who thinks this is a good idea "likes" this post, it will then be easier for staff to see if the community likes this idea or not (without having to post lots of separate +1 posts.)
Just an idea :)

@maschinsky - Can you get this to work?.. won't work here, but I'm also running the trial. Not sure if there's some limitations, but the "characters of current font" won't work here :(
Paekke got a reaction from Schubi63 in AD auto jump to selected object in layer panel
Hear me out.. Why not let AD do the work for you.. So instead of the user having to find layers and groups by scrolling, it should just jump right to the selected object/group in the Layer PaneI. I mean AD highlights selected, but it could just as well jump to it. I would LOVE to see this added :wub:
Paekke reacted to MEB in Google Nik Collection is now free for everyone.
Google has just announced that their Google Nik Collection composed of seven Photoshop plug-ins is now free for everyone.
Click here for more details. You can download them from here.
Currently Analog Efex Pro 2, Color Efex Pro 4, Silver Efex Pro 2 work with Affinity Photo. HDR Efex Pro 2 only works partially.
Paekke got a reaction from LilleG in Ability to add N number of new points between points
yes this and sliding nodes on the curve, which means the curve shape remains, but the point moves on it.
I too would love the ability to extrude edges, so the workflow would remind of 3d modeling in top ortho view.
BTW: you can get a circle with 8 nodes by using the Cloud Tool then set the number of bubbles to 4 and move the red node outwards so that it shapes like an circle. Then convert to curves.
Paekke reacted to pentool in Stroke Selection
Sorry, if this has been posted already (search didn't show up results), but would like to see a "Stroke Selection" feature in APhoto.
Eg, create any combination of lasso, circular, rectangular selection and stroke it with a color and a specific point size.
