  1. Setting - PDF export for PRINT - export text as curves. Naturally - testing all PDF settings will be necessary for your bug investigation. Also attached a PDF export ... bug-copy1-a.pdfThank you. bug-copy1.afdesign
  2. Exporting a shape that has a bitmap fill (wrap) to PDF does not fill the shape properly ... it only shows the bitmap in the center of the shape, but does not actually fill the shape. See attached 5in x 5in square, the fill does not actually fill the shape area. Seems like a major rendering bug. I've tested many times with the same result. koozie-2d_300dpi.pdf
  3. Since it has been YEARS for no vector warp (especially for text) and other vector essentials they cut ... please use Xara ... https://www.magix.com/us/photo-graphic/xara-designer-pro/
  4. 5 YEARS --- YEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS and no vector distort ---- It's not going to happen folks --- use XARA Designer PRO - it not as pretty but has better color management and tools -AND vector distort / envelope. https://www.xara.com/us/designer-pro/features/
  5. 5 YEARS LATER and NO VECTOR WARP - why people are pissed is because this feature was part of their previous draw program and somehow is not being implemented. Vector warp is a standard feature.
  6. Use a different program since AD seems to be disinterested in getting some basic features released in a timely manner. ... it. has. been. YEARS. https://www.magix.com/us/photo-graphic/xara-designer-pro/
  7. YEARS and no standard tools in AD. I had to switch to ... https://www.magix.com/us/photo-graphic/xara-designer-pro/ ... for a full set of features.
  8. YEARS and no standard tools in AD. I had to switch to ... https://www.magix.com/us/photo-graphic/xara-designer-pro/ ... for a full set of features.
  9. After 3 years of waiting for AD to include all the features that they removed from Serif and dealing with snapping, performance, endless workarounds and other routine feature issues...I am officially leaving AD and moving to Xara Designer Pro X. I had such high hopes for this software, but it seems that I just can't wait what seems like will be another 5-10 YEARS for real fixes and features to be incorporated. It was a good try, and I think the Affinity team is superb. All the best.
  10. When shape is converted to curve and skewed, corners DO NOT SNAP, but regular shape does. This is a MAJOR ERROR. aff_snapERROR.mp4 aff_snapERROR.mp4 aff_snapERROR.mp4
  11. https://www.xara.com/us/photo-graphic-designer/ Xara contains all my vector work arounds. I guess Xara wants the $$$. The vector warp, distort, mesh is a basic must have.
  12. It's been a few YEARS and these tools are not available. Please use Xara for these tools.
  13. I guess we just have to start promoting other products on the forum ... https://www.xara.com/us/photo-graphic-designer/
  14. Updating Affinity products has 100% failure rate - ALWAYS FAILS.
  15. When is the next update...? You should post if you are NOT going to update anymore so I can move to another program. Is Affinity still in business? For those looking for a work around ... I am using Xara for distortion, blends, etc... basically all the tools that DrawPlus had.
  16. !!! - When setting a CMYK swatch - I update the swatch color but the label does not change, meaning I am looking at the wrong color numbers when making sure all my colors match and are ready for printing. Not good. Too time consuming to tweak the color and manually insert the color code every time. - and please, please turn off auto switching color to tint, it's EXTREMELY time consuming to reset the box every time I hit a global color.
  17. Please disable auto switch to tint. If I am checking several colors in a design and hit a global color, then I manually have to reset the color panel to CMYK....which is extremely time consuming. Let the user choose the color box they want to use and leave it. Working with lots of colors with the auto tint almost makes global colors unusable, especially if you need to tweak those colors quickly. OR - please make the function like Serif Draw where the color tab remembers the setting for non global colors.
  18. Here is why I think it may be AD ... when I choose PDF (for Export) I can export the large file (around 36mb)...but when I choose PDF (for web) from the drop down, the calculating size never finishes and then my OS completely locks up. Here some of my sys info. OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Home Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393 System Manufacturer Dell Inc. System Model Inspiron 5559 System Type x64-based PC System SKU 06B2 Processor IntelĀ® Core i5-6200U CPU @ 2.30GHz, 2401 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s) BIOS Version/Date Dell Inc. 1.2.3, 8/25/2016 I know you guys a
  19. AD Causes OS CRASH When Exporting 300dpi to 72 (export for web) - When exporting a 300dpi document to 72 (PDF for web), my entire computer becomes unresponsive and then I get blue screen of death. (new dell computer). MAJOR ISSUE. It appears that AD can't calculate or export hi rez PDF images (6.5 x 8 inch output) without the memory and CPU maxing out and crashing the OS.
  20. I have a 10mb file with 5 artboards. When trying to export to PDF (web) entire doc, the calculating does not complete and the application AND my COMPUTER locks up ... this is a major major issue. I have duplicated this issue and isolated to Affinity Designer.
