    kemo reacted to MEB in Development Status - Where is Affinity 1.5 Beta?   
    Seems it have worked Rui: Affinity Designer Customer Beta (1.4.2 - RC1) has just been released.
    Maybe if you continue punching holes in the refresh icon, version 1.5 will come out too :)

    And the Lord saith: Thou shall atone for thine sins by releasing another beta soon. And 1.5 beta. And, like, ehm..., Publisher... ;) (seriously, I have been waiting for that one for ages and had to buy both Designer and Photo just to endure the pain... Addictions can be funny - turns out I am addicted to something I have never seen or imbibed yet. :rolleyes: )

    kemo reacted to LightPillar in Workflow Improvements to the Layer Panel   
    Hi Guys,
    As someone who typically deals with a lot of layers and groups within groups, there are some features that would save a lot of time and a lot of unnecessary clicking. My apologies if these features already exist but I was unable to find any info.
    1) Using alt-click on a group to open or close itself and all sub-groups. I miss this feature from Photoshop as it makes it easy to work with all your groups and layers
    2) Options to rename multiple layers. If I've created dozens layers and slices all with very specific names (because the images are going into Xcode) and then at some point I need to change the naming convention, I have to manually rename each and every slice. And if I want the layers to match, I have to rename those too (again). If the slice detects that the layer it derived from has changed, it should automatically update. At the moment, I'm having to batch rename the output files knowing all the names in my source file are incorrect. Or, manually rename all the layers and slices.
    3) Options to duplicate a layer and apply a custom postfix or automatic sequential numeric increment. Again, this saves lots of double-clicking on layers and manual renaming.
    Thanks for your consideration!

    can't believe there is nearly no interest in this feature! Im hoping it will come in any of the following betas.

    The new grid system is AWESOME!

    Two things I have noticed so far:

    1) Grid spacing units should not only be constrained to Millimeter. I'm working on screen designs and need a grid in pixels.
    2) Values cannot be adjusted with the mouse-wheel but only by direct input or the sliders. I would favor a system like in Photoshop where you can klick on the value field and drag the mouse (or graphic tablet pen) to the side to adjust the values.
    Thank you
