    AD 1.5.4 Colour Wells Bug

    Hi. There is not a problem in forgetting to move opacity from zero. This is clearly a bug. After you slide opacity to 100%, the colour is not black - it is CMYK gray and it behaves normally - returning the original object's visibility, or if you like - repainting the mask to zero , resetting it to normal, “unmasked“. But the moment you try to change that grey to black, it resets itself to white and starts to erase, or add to the mask, hiding the origiinal vector instead of “unmasking“.
  2. Sorry to hear that in Win version it works erraticakky. On a Mac it works fine. They should fix it then, ASAP.

    Cropping To Size

    Hi. MEB, I think you are missing something, after all. For instance, how do I crop picture for 1080 px x 1080 px @ 72 dpi, that we require to do when prepairing image for Instagram, for instance? This is an essencial feature !! Perhaps it is well hidden in Photo, but I think that the probrammers did not put it in. A great omission for pro work.
  4. THE SOLUTION for ex Ai users for “palette-mess“ IS HERE! If you want to avoid the layer-mess in Designer, do two things. 1. First create empty layer my clicking “add layer“ icon at the bottom of layer palette and then work in that layer. Similar to Ai, FH etc. 2. at the upper-right part of layer palette there is a small button that toggles palette view preference called “auto-scroll“. This is strangely named , since it has almost nothing to do with scrolling. Instead, it keeps your layer “folded“, “shut“. it should be DESELECTED. If you compare it to Ai, it is exactly the same as an expand layer contetn arrow in Ai palette next to the layer name. So, Ai and Designer do work ecactly the same in regard to layers, exept for two things: 1. the default in Ai is for the layer to be “collapsed“, and the default in AD is “expanded“ view of the sublayers, and 2. AD places everything you draw on its new “layer“, if you do not create empty layer prior to doing anything, while Ai puts everything on a previously created layer. I have oversimplyfied it a little (laters, sublayers, nest, child, parent..), but in essence this is it, and there is no need to complicate the things by throwing names. I hope this would help you,m since I was mad from AD palette-mess, but now I am a happy clicker :o)

  6. If only Designer would get - decent Pantone implementation, - selecting by attributes, - decent printing options for drawings exceeding printer size - Lock/hide/unlock/show option outside the layer pallette, I wouldn't think of Adobe products again for pro work. Until then, we in our design studio are stuck with Adobe. The Developers should better address those issues for PRO PREPRESS users, otherwise Designer is going the way Inkscape is now.. close-but-no-cigar state, unfit for PRO PREPRESS work just because of a few minor missing, but crucial fetures. I think that for the time being, the developers have been too concertrated on web interface designers. No offence to nobody, but graphic design WITH prepress is lightyears more challenging, and prepress people WILL pay for a good Ai alternative. Designer is almost there and I think that it is just plain stupid to ignore the prepress features in favour to some nice gimmicks. If you remember, Freehand and Quark were so much used not because of their gimmicks, but because of their robustness.
