  1. couldnt at least for reasonable sizes the entire doc be kept in memory so it doesnt have to result in that?
  2. I have this sometimes too especially if the network share loses connectivity for a bit. (but it was designer on Windows) I can see why an error message is needed if it cant save, but SERIOUSLY, forcibly closing the document is NOT the right way to go about it, rather spawn a save as dialog.
  3. precisely. it was probably changed when they introduced the new logos.
  4. hello, just wanted to note something less about the program but rather about the beta test itself apparently with the re-branding of 1.7 there are no beta specific icons anymore and even the title you can see in the taskbar just says "Affinity Designer" which makes it really ugly since there is only one true place where you can see that you are in the beta and that is the splashscreen which is also used in the about panel. I think this can easily lead to confusion for people who use both on the same machine and should be fixed sooner or later.
  5. @Estrobeda well I can see why they wont officially do a wine version because then they would quite literally come to w(h)ine when something doesnt work which might not be the fault of serif/affinity.
  6. nice to know as I would also totally dig it, I switched my Laptpo to Linux (Kubuntu) last august and it works pretty decently (win10 is ugly and the driver situation of 8.1 which I use as main on my other machines is, well, not pretty), and there are many things which work so much better after some setup which dont work as nice or not at all in windows (like for example having a german layout without the "dead" keys, or NOT forcing a US-Keyboard onto me while writing japanese or the pretty neat circular scrolling feature which doesnt work on all touchpads in windows etc etc) honestly Linux in my opinion has only 2 things that are actually hard: 1) the setup (drivers and stuff) 2) programs (obvious) and yeah I would totally dig affinity on Linux one way or another. also I think the idea to have your purchase count as Linux instead of win/mac outlined in that one post pretty awesome:
  7. I generally would love if both icons would be accessible somehow so ppl can choose between the old and new style, but probably other things are more important.
  8. (originally from https://twitter.com/My1xT/status/1093096365532549120 ) how about making it so the beta has a version numbering available where one can see what version is active. both on the publisher download page https://store.serif.com/de/update/windows/publisher-beta/1/ and in the customer panel you see only "1.7.0" ever since the start of the beta, which isnt really great and kinda confusing, might it not be better to show a version number which makes sense like for example 1.7.0-beta5 or showing the date of the last beta or whatever so one doesnt have to guess which is the recent version?
  9. I personally have to say I like the previous logos a LOT more, especially since the triangle shape made it easy to see the affinity software in between all the circles and rectangles most other icons have, and I personally dislike flat design.
  10. while at least something, it would be nice to also have a global option like one can do in gimp.
  11. sorry for necroing this (but there's no reason to create a new topic for something regarding it), but are there any plans for adding this feature someday? that would REALLY help in enough situations.
  12. @αℓƒяє∂ well then the label could be called "full color PNG" or whatever instead of using PNG/24. @walt.farrell well but why does the preset have "same as document" inside when it's called PNG/24? thanks for the "more" button-related info. I didnt even know that PNG can do more than 8 bit per channel per pixel, so I was always under the impression that while I can create in HDR (so I lose nothing) but mainly export into a normal PNG with 8 bit per channel. I think one could do some more explanative settings/names instead, for example: PNG Full color (export with same color format as the doc) PNG (8 bit per channel) force 8 bit per channel making it 24 or 32 bits per pixel depending on alpha PNG (256 colors) (what PNG/8 was, because PNG8 uses 256 colors, like a gif) especially considering that PNG-24 implies no alpha, the name is ugly and plain wrong.
  13. I have here the export window of a picture in affinity, and the property window of the exported file and windows says it's 48 instead. if i use a picture with transparent background it obviously gains an alpha channel and while the setting still says 24 (which should become 32 normally with 8 bit per chan) the property window shows 64 bit. also just as a sidenote that would make each channel 16 bit instead of having 8 on each, as one would expect from PNG-24. and definitely isnt 24 bit judging by the size either. 3840px by 2160px by 3 byte per color per pixel results in 24.883.200 bytes. The PNG is quite a bit larger. for comparison, the same image stored as a 24 bit bmp by mspaint results in 24.883.254 bytes. the 54 bytes are probably header and metadata.
  14. but we would also need help for inkscape or a similar vector tool.
  15. and you can stack artboards on top of each other or what? the export eye is only partially helpful as one would need to toggle it on an off all the time, which is what I do right now. if the eye settings would work per slice it probably migvht help.
