    Rick G reacted to Uwe367 in Filter Twirl allows only 1024 px diameter   
    Is that a bug or a feature?
    I have tried to rework a tutorial in AP for which I need the Filter "Twirl".
    I noticed that this filter with the slider only allows 1024 px diameter and resets a manual input to 1024px.
    Then I tried another filter, Spherical, from the same menu and there I can manually enter a value greater than 1024 which will be applied and not automatically reset to 1024 px.
    Please watch the video below.
    So, what works right now? Is it possible to manually enter a higher value than the slider allows or not?
    In my opinion it would be better to enter the value for all filters manually afterwards or to allow a much higher value than 1024 px as standard.
    I wanted to twirl the entire image, which is 6000x4000 px, but that's impossible with the settings I can make at the moment or am i doing something wrong?
    The same beahavior is in 1.6.5.123.

    Perhaps someone can confirm this behavior.

    Wow. Would you kindly put the steps used before you exported or attach the photo file if you could? I would be glad to try and verify this

    Rick G reacted to walt.farrell in How to link text frames?   
    For something that specific, it's even simpler. You start with a Master Page that defines the footer area as a Text Frame, and you set the style for that Text Frame. Then you apply that Master to all your document pages, and simply put the relevant text into the frame on each document page, and it's automatically styled based on what you specified in the Master Page. If you need to make a style change later, you just change it on the Master Page and all the document pages you've applied it to will also change.
    But to use styles, you format some text as you want it, create a Text Style from that text and make it a Paragraph Style, then select that Paragraph Style from the Context Toolbar when you're creating the actual paragraph text.
    The key is planning, before creating the actual text

    Chris, please ask if they can make a check box on the tool bar or do SOMETHING so that it can be set on the fly and remember where it is set?

    Rick G got a reaction from Jowday in [Poll] Do you need a DAM? And what should it be like?   
    Good points and no disagreement. BUT if they are trying to cover the market, they will; need to consider a DAM at some point. AVDSEE has become a kludgy mess and lets not get into the adobe offerings. That market seems open if not ripe, but I am sure they will delve into the possibilities much deeper than we can before they commit anything to a new program

    No my friend, it is totally broken. You cannot change the colors you cannot do anything with the slider. It is broken worse in the latest beta than in the previous if that is possible
    If it is not totally broken and is in fact a new feature, pleas explain how to achieve a gradient

    Rick G reacted to kaenes in Affinity Designer/Photo in the Workplace   
    It probably depends on specific company. Even if some of them uses Affiinity they may not have it on requirements. Mainly because it is easier to find someone familiar with adobe products. But recently a lot of people uses wider range of apps and software packages. For an example I'm responsible for user interface in in popular free 2 play game. And I have switched to AD from Illustrator right after Affinity Designer has been released. And when we were looking for a new UI designer we have'nt wrote about AD in our requirements. But I did ask about it during one on one conversation. After recruitment process I did show to my new team mate how Affinity Designer works and he immediately loved it. So now we both use Affinity Designer in our daily routine instead of Adoby products. It does'nt mean that I fully dropped Adobe products but I use different tools depends on my needs.

    I tried to paint out some lettering this morning. The Opacity and Flow were at 100% yet the paint went on as if the opacity was set very low. I reset the brush although I had never changed any of it's settings (just to be thorough)
    I'm either missing something and this is user error or we have a bug

    Print establishments calculate the spine thickness. It's easy to take that dimension and create a cover.
    As for ISBN codes, when I purchase one I generally receive the file for it. The couple places that do not provide the actual file, I use a separate application to create it in vector format and place it in the cover file.

    Chris ... I have had this with a lot simpler conversion. It is random and may have to do with the latest beta having trouble with some JPG files (at least that is what I am using when it happens) It just won't load certain files yet if I resize FIRST with ACDSEE, then the beta can read and load them. Do you want another thread on that as I am not trying to hijack this one,.
