  1. I cannot add or change guides margins (any - left/right/top/bottom) in Customer Beta -
  2. It would also help if there's a way to generate a list of all set shortcuts - like a PDF file or even a simple TXT file as the .afshort is unreadable. This way we can print it and have it always nearby to help memorize our custom shortcuts faster. The panel in Affinity is very difficult to use, it's small and has two sets of lists - for the personas and for the categories which makes it impossible to easily access all the shortcuts at once.

    Too many nodes

    Related to this, is there any smart node removal tool? Or is it in development? Something like this:
  4. I think there should be some temporary shadow/dotted line shown, it doesn't make any sense to me from an usability point of view. On the other hand, you can switch to outline mode and see the base line.
  5. Ah, you're right - sorry. What I needed to use was "Show/Hide Column Guides" - which is working. Showing/Hiding the regular guides works too. Please disregard my previous comment.
  6. Thanks Sean. I forgot to mention but there is also the problem of not being able to turn the guides ON/OFF anymore.
  7. After I'm creating Guides using the Columns option I cannot switch them off. Changing the Color -> Opacity slider for them doesn't work either.
  8. +1 I'm surprised to see this option doesn't exist.

    Selecting locked layers

    Billiant, thanks @raptor for the Outline mode workaround!

    Save Workspaces

    +1 it's definitely cumbersome to rearrange the panels each time.

    Selecting locked layers

    +1000 for this. It doesn't seem very hard to implement and would make the workflow soo easy. Maybe use a modifier key (Alt, Ctrl) when clicking the object to selected it in the layers panel. Obviously, this feature it's missing in Illustrator.
  12. I think it useful also to have the option to paste, not just to copy.
  13. +1 from me. Hex color box needs to be there all the times. It's the only way to copy and paste color values quickly between AD and external sources. It's tedious to keep changing the color mode just to get the hex value box. This has been super frustrating for me in Illustrator, I hope AD can do better.
  14. Thanks, in that case may I suggest as a solution adding an extra shortcut modifier - like using SHIFT+CTRL+[ or ]. Or even better, add it to the keyboard shortcuts preferences.
  15. If I want to move an object down or up in the hierarchy of the Layers panel I can use CTRL+[ or ]. But what if I want to move it out of a group/symbol/layer? The only way is to use the "release" action, right? Is there a "release" action keyboard shortcut?
  16. I've already posted this in Questions & Feedback but since it doesn't seem to be implemented yet, I'm adding it as a request. For example, I have a square which only has a fill color (no stroke). If I click on another shape, let's say a circle and I'm changing it's stroke color, when I click back on the square, I would like the color panel to auto-select the fill attribute (since it's the only attribute the square has) instead of keeping the stroke attribute selected (from the previous change). My logic is that I would want to change it's color rather than add a stroke to it. This way would eliminate an unnecessary extra click and speed you up when you'd have to repeat the action several times.
  17. Same thing is happening to me both in AP ( and AD ( - seems random, can't really reproduce it. Crash Report folders are empty.

    Path Extend

    +1 I'm voting for this too.
  19. I'm not sure if it has been requested yet but it would be great to be able to convert Artistic text to Frame text because the text content doesn't always stays the same and for example, when you want to change a title to a paragraph at the moment you're force to create a new object (Frame text) and overlay it on the same pre-existing Artistic text. It just takes a lot of time if you need to repeat this action several times. And then again, if you need to change it back you have to start over replacing paragraphs with Artistic text.
  20. Hi shushustorm, Can you please tell me where exactly is that option in Affinity Designer? I can't seem to find it.

    „Unlock all“ Command

    +1 We need "unlock all" functionality. Surely, this is an easy fix compared to others?
