  1. I use all three OS's at different times but my overriding preference is Mac OS. I set up a laptop with Linux Mint 20 and it's such a nice experience that I find myself spending more and more time using it (I'm a web / app developer primarily). I've tried to get Photo / Designer running in Linux but other than using a virtualized OS it hasn't happened. Having Affinity's products running on Linux would SERIOUSLY mess with my head: I'd probably find myself using Linux more than Mac OS and I've never been in that situation before! But I'd love to find out how things pan out in that case.
  2. I have a habit of double-clicking a word (to select it all) but holding the mouse button down and dragging over subsequent words to select a few of them (let's say I want to italicize). Double-clicking the word then dragging ensures I don't miss a letter or only get part of the word in a selection. BUG: If I double-click then drag to the right, then down to the next line, everything is fine. BUT If I double-click then drag to the left, then down to the next line, the first word becomes un-highlighted. I've attached a short video to show what happens. The wo
  3. Congratulations! And well deserved. Keep up the great work.. of keeping me off of any Adobe products :p
  4. I've had to switch the UI to light just so I can see the thumbnail detail in the Layer palette. I had a number of Curve layers that contained black stroke'd lines and they are almost impossible to see with a dark UI (my preference). Please see attached screenshots. I tried adjusting the UI gamma in preferences but it made no discernible difference.
  5. This is something InDesign has and I make use of. It would be very useful to have it in Publisher too.
  6. While fiddling with a book page layout, I'm adjusting the margins and printing sample pages to help decide what settings I'd like to use. Is there a way ( if not, a handy little button on the Text Frame panel would be fab! ) to make all of the text frames in the document resize to fit the newly altered page margins. This could be limited to the Page Master in use.
  7. I'd also like to know if it's possible to restore an image's ratio. I updated the source of a linked image and it updated in my picture frame at an incorrect ratio, even though the previous image was the correct ratio.
  8. You're a star Dominik. I'd done all that except change the anchor point! Thank you very much
  9. Does this feature already exist (and I can't find it)? Is it possible to resize a picture's frame without the picture itself (like in InDesign where you can manipulate the picture frame or separately move and size the picture within the frame)
  10. Thanks Walt. I tried using the Help text field to search for invisibles but nothing came up. No surprise, it's called SPECIAL characters!
  11. I just found out the super-fast way of creating multiple pages automatically with just a couple of clicks. This information might be written somewhere but in case anyone doesn't find it there, here's what I did. I'm working on a book (70+ pages) so I created a facing-pages document and set spread margins. I then added two pages. After this I went to the first page and placed a text frame to fit the page margin guides. I then pasted in my 70-pages of text, which obviously overflowed the single text frame on the single page. The next step is to click on the overflow arrow on the right,
  12. The latest Beta now supports this behavior, matching both Designer and Photo. Great job Affinity!
  13. Nope, my original request was to be able to move the pages around in the window even though they're much smaller -- just like you see in the screenshot. If I could move the pages over to the left I'd expose the handle on the right that's currently hidden. The pages in the document automatically center and the view can't be shifted. Attached to make it clearer, a picture says so much more!
