  1. It is confusing. Every other piece of photo software and art software calls it "Opacity". So, why be different here? When I first started to adjust brushes or attempt to make my own, I was scratching my head trying to figure out how to adjust "opacity" or to control it via pressure. I thought it would be simple, and just dove in, but could not find opacity under Dynamics. What makes this more confusing is there is an opacity slider on the top toolbar of the main interface. So, you expect to find "opacity" in the brush settings, too (especially under the Dynamics section).

    Place Randomly Changes to TXT Instead of All

    Sure! Thanks for looking into this. I appreciate it.
  3. Yep. That's what I've been doing. Even so, whatever the intended behavior is, I'd like the pages panel to reflect the page I am on unless I am the one to have scrolled it. It's a minor thing, but a somewhat annoying thing. Thanks for checking this, though. I do appreciate it.
  4. As stated, it is the Pages column (Pages panel on the left side of Publisher) that moves so that the first page is being viewed there. However, the correct page is selected, so the page navigator at the bottom (below the Pages panel) states the correct page.
  5. Hello. I am working in Publisher putting together a set of cards for a strategy card game. This means that each card, front and back, is different and there are currently 216 cards (counting both fronts and backs) in this deck. I've received some changes and am happy to see that I can make the changes directly in Publisher. Fantastic. However, there is an issue. After I exit from Edit Document I find that my Pages column (left hand side) is back to Page 1. Since I will be editing a lot of these cards throughout the deck (each card face on it's own page), having to scroll back down to where I had left off each time I edit a document is kind of a pain. So, is this normal behavior? Is there a way to keep this from happening? Or is there a way to get the Pages column to move to the current page I am working on in the main view when this occurs? Thanks.

    Place Randomly Changes to TXT Instead of All

    I was not able to record a video, but I was experiencing this quite a bit with my last project. I had to make corrections to the deck of cards and replace them in the deck I had put together in Publisher. In each case I was bringing in a PSD file saved from Photoshop. I was never creating or placing any text whatsoever. The PSD file had layers and, yes, some of the layers were text layers. But in every case, the PSD file was a complete card with text and images making the entire design. When I used Place or Replace (to replace a previously placed image), many times when I went to Place or Replace, it would default to TXT instead of the last option, which shows any type of supported file. I don't know if this helps. I hope so, though, as I was getting this a lot this last time around. Sometimes Place or Replace was defaulting to TXT several times in a row.

    Any word on this?

    Can't Print From Designer Most of the Time

    It was a document with some fairly simple shapes. I can share it here (see attached). As pointed out, it printed once out of about five tries ... and that one time was not the first attempt. CSTabmate_Scheme.afdesign
  9. Hello. This is a strange one. I installed the latest version of Designer today (1.7.2) and I cannot always print my work directly in Designer. In fact, out of 5 attempts (with starting Designer over twice), I was only able to get a document to print once. I've had to export to PDF and print from there. Each time I attempt to print from within Designer, my printer starts to whir like it is going to print, then it shuts down as if it didn't get a file. My printer is not reacting this way to any other piece of software I have installed on my Windows 10 PC.

    Place Randomly Changes to TXT Instead of All

    I have not placed a single text file nor was I placing in or using a Text Frame in either Publisher or Designer when I noticed this. As stated above, I was placing IMAGES for a DECK OF CARDS to be printed. In each case, it was a PNG file. So, Place was reverting to TXT despite me using images each time.

    Place Randomly Changes to TXT Instead of All

    After completing the project, I noticed this happening about every second or third time I was using Place.
  12. I've had a project where I've had to use Place to place a lot of images (basically setting up a deck of cards in Publisher to go to print). Every once in a while, after using the menu to click on Place, the area where you select document type gets set to TXT instead of ALL. I never change this, so the software is doing it on its own. It does not happen every time, but it does happen frequently - maybe once every four or five times accessing Place. BTW - This happens in both Publisher and Designer. I've not tested this in Photo.
  13. Hello. I really am enjoying using both Affinity Photo and Designer. My feedback/suggestion here is a small one, but I hope you will consider it. I think that the Alignment icon/button that appears on the top bar of both Photo and Designer should be in (approximately) the same location in BOTH applications. Currently, in Designer it's almost in the center of the bar. In Photo, it's toward the right side. Many of us are using both applications and switching between them. Reaching up and clicking the alignment icon to align items starts to develop muscle memory ... or it would ... if the icon were similarly placed in both apps. As much as these two apps are used together by so many artists and are so similar, it would only make sense that this one button be similarly positioned on the top bar.
  14. I feel like an idiot. I looked before posting and didn't see that. I looked again after reading your post and STILL didn't see it! I was about to post that it wasn't in my version of Photo! But I decided to look again and THERE IT WAS! Wow. Now ... where's my glasses?
