  1. We've been asking for 6 years now. They could've re-done Affinity Designer from scratch by now, so my expectations are low.
  2. I'm having the same issue on Windows PC. Native OS resolution, native monitor settings, no scaling of any kind. Actual size for A4 piece of paper on Affinity Designer looks about 70% of actual A4 size.
  3. No one's asking for my 2 cents, but here I am... It's not a matter of comparing to Adobe (which is a HUGE company that delivers large updates twice a year on every product), but a matter of seeing progress in some fronts. There are features like free distort and meshes which have been asked by the Designer community for over 4 years now. They were in the roadmap, but now the public roadmap is gone, so we can't tell if something is being done about those features or not. I understand that Designer for iPad and Publisher have been released in the meantime, but it seems that the Serif team can only work on one product at a time. So if they're making Publisher for 3 years and Designer for iPad for 2 years, that's 5 years of no substantial updates in Photo and Designer. This is, of course, my own speculation about how the company works. I can't find another explanation for this. However being in the software industry for almost 16 years I have seen really, really small teams deliver features on a regular base on different products, without entering this - really weird, to me - state of no progress in certain projects. Designer is pretty much left behind, receiving only smaller quality of life improvement updates. Now, it might not be Serif's goal to have all of Illustrator features and make a replacement for it, but if it's not their goal they haven't stated what their goal is either.
  4. Unfortunately very true. Affinity completely ignored AD's roadmap to make the iPad versions and Publisher.
  5. This is sad. This thread is from 2014. Almost 5 years waiting on a feature so I can ditch Photoshop and Illustrator.
  6. Thanks for this update, I'm a little late on this one. I agree with both @nezumi and @WaveF. On one side we have Adobe adding a bunch of stuff no one needs/cares about, on the other side we have this four-years-old roadmap for Affinity Designer that is not getting done anytime soon. I'm still using AD for simple stuff or early project phase, but all my final work is done in PS. I really o appreciate all the hard work put into Designer, Photo and Publisher, but it's obvious that Affinity is biting way more than it can chew. Start charging for updates, I don't know, find a way to get a larger team so development can move faster. The roadmap was posted in 2014! 4 years waiting for distort tool!
  7. Thanks for explaining, MEB. I wonder why is this not the default behaviour as in many other design tools. Also, the description of that setting in Portuguese doesn't really say what it does. It's completely nonsense, so if you could please ask the developers to review it... Translates back into english as "Move the restriction to the tool aspect". What?! I would have never figured it out.
  8. Hello Serif team, I am wondering what is the reasoning behind the inconstant behavior of the Shift key when transforming different kinds of objects in Affinity Designer. Examples: Transforming a single shape with shift key pressed - scales proportionally Transforming a single image with shift key pressed - scales freely (out of proportion) Transforming a group (either a group of images, a group of shapes or mixed) with shift key pressed - scales freely Transforming a text frame with shift key pressed - scales freely Transforming a selection of many shapes (ungrouped) with shift key pressed - scales proportionally In all the cases above the shift key is being pressed while dragging the handles, why don't they all behave the same? Shouldn't a modifier key always apply the same modification to the same tool (transform, in this case)? It is such a headache to change the behaviour you're used to depending on what's selected, or what's grouped or not. This doesn't make sense to me from an usability perspective. i"m running latest public AD in Windows 10 (also latest).
  9. Great detail and styling. I own quite a bit of synths and wanted to make illustrations of them for t-shirts but I usually give up by the 11th knob
  10. Cool idea. Personally I find the original icons hideous, but you managed to keep the identity and expand on the concept, so they all fit together. Well done!
