  1. Yes, I just turned it off. It doesn't fix the problem for people who want to use it though. Users will inadvertently press the wrong key like me all the time.
  2. This is awful! Did you user test this? Every time I want to zoom (option + scroll) I accidentally hit the command key (command + scroll). I cannot tell you how many times I rotate the canvas by accident since these keys are right next to each other. I end up having to reset my view all the time. Worst experience ever! Fix it.
  3. I have noticed the 'Add' feature is also broken and does the same thing when combining shapes. The bug is probably related. I have attached a file. Try expanding only the topmost stroke, then combine it to the top shape. You will see a very similar problem where it fills the right area of the combined shape. My guess is in both cases, where the intersection happens, you are forgetting to create a node (or point). rig-icon.afdesign
  4. I'm beginning to think they can't actually add this feature as it is very complex. They probably need to hire a mathematician who specializes in vectors.
  5. I'm experiencing the same issue. This is a pretty serious problem. It makes the software almost unusable as I use this feature a lot. It's especially problematic when designing at smaller sizes. For example, when I am designing icons, the expand stroke feature is ridiculously bad. I can not use Affinity Designer for designing symbols or icons. Yes it's that bad. Please fix it soon.
  6. Has the Affinity team considered looking at the Inkscape repo to see how they have implemented envelope / distort. It is after all an open source project. You could probably glean some ideas there.
  7. I've run into this problem a couple times now using Affiinity Designer 1.6.1 where it renders a duplicate set of artboards on zoom in and out. They appear briefly while zooming in and out, then disappear. It seems to be fine after I restart the app. I got into this state as I shut off my Mac without closing Affinity Designer. Then after restarting my Mac, Affinity Designer reopened and I got into this strange state. This also happens sometimes while I am just using the app. I'm running macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 on a Macbook Pro (Retina, Retina 13-inch, Early 2015). 16GB Ram, 2.7 GHz Intel core i5 (Benq SW2700pt external display, via HDMI).

  8. @davemike Well I guess Adobe can take your money and run with it (that's what they did to me). Even after leaving Adobe, they offered me 3 months of creative suite for free. After my 3 free months were up they didn't actually cancel my subscription as I assumed they would. No, they actually started started billing me again and never reimbursed me (criminal). Personally, I'll wait until this summer for Affinity Publisher. Good bye Adobe.
  9. I've noticed crashes happen for me when I'm editing a symbol on an artboard, and then move the symbol off the artboard (AF beta 4). I'm using El Capitan 10.11.5
  10. I don't think the problem is the magic mouse. I have a magic mouse 1 and 2. When I use Illustrator I don't have the same problem. I think Illustrator has permanently turned down the fidelity though. Panning in Illustrator is not smooth, and it shifts in about 5px increments. However, my solution is to turn the panning fidelity down ONLY on mouse down (like Illustrator). Turn the fidelity back up on mouse up. I don't know if this is possible, but obviously this is not a big problem in Illustrator. I still love your product though.
  11. It would be nice to have an option in the transform panel to rotate relative to the shape or rotate relative to the rotation centre.
  12. I'm using Affinity Designer 1.4.2 and I could not figure out how to edit a group. I double clicked the group to no avail. Finally I realized that I actually could edit the group, but there was no visual cue to tell me that I was in edit mode. I think having a greyed out transparent background would be helpful (similar to Adobe Illustrator's isolation mode). This would tell me that I'm now able to edit the group.
  13. I'm not sure if AD uses SVG as it's default file format, but the <symbol> definition is pretty easy to implement. Here is a quick example: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Element/symbol
