  1. Hi everyone, There is a bug in AD (and probably earlier versions) in which when choosing the Pixel preview mode on the top toolbar the artboard background and bounds slides off by a large amount. This offset affects slices in the export persona as well. It makes it pretty much impossible to work on pixel-perfect images as the Export persona will offset the artboard randomly too. Please view the attached file, Thank you.

    Affinity Designer for Windows - 1.6.5

    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!
  3. Hi, Following MEB's advice I've been creating my own assets for a project, but the suggestion of dragging elements from the canvas/artboard to the Assets panel doesn't seem to work on Windows. When I drag the element to the assets panel it is placed on the document and does not appear over the Assets panel as would be expected from a drag action. "Add from selection" from the category pop-up menu works as expected. Thanks
  4. Hello, In Affinity Designer I noticed that whenever I change the Constraints configuration for an object the "outer" effects on it stop working. In the linked video I have an outline shadow for each "row" on my design. When I change the constraints the shadow disappears - you can see a very fine line where it should be, like if it's been cropped. I have tested this with Outline Shadow and Outline Glow with large radius to the same result. Inner Shadow and Inner Glow are not affected by it. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2273140/ad-windows10-drop-shadow-constraint.mp4 Thanks

    Call for Camera Images

    Is this restricted to professional cameras? I have a Xiomi 4K camera for recording video but it also takes pictures in RAW format.
  6. 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).
  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.

    Latest Affinity releases on each platform by store

    Shouldn't this post be locked for comments? This way we only get notifications when the list is updated, not when a comment is added.
  9. Currently every time I start a new document I have to set the Pressure Controller for a brush manually. Would like to be able to set it as a default either in the Tools preferences or in Edit > Defaults > Save as Default.

    Isometric Dub Siren

    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

    Concept Software icon

    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!

    Well done

    [Designer] Website Login Pages Templates

    Hello, I made these login pages templates in my spare time. They're for Affinity Designer. Maybe it will be useful to someone. You will need the free "Chivo" font from Google Fonts to edit the file - https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Chivo Enjoy! Login Template FernandoLins.zip
  16. Hello all, In Photoshop it is quite easy to do a "pixel-stretch" effect on a bitmap layer (such as a photo) by selecting a row or column of single pixels then scaling it (see picture below). When I try to do this in Affinity Designer (in Pixel mode), the pixel row/column is resized and smoothed out, becoming a gradient. How can I avoid this and get the same effect as in Photoshop?
  17. This is great stuff, @Ben and Serif team. Well done! Can't wait for the update. Will certainly move me a step closer to ditching Photoshop/Illustrator.
