  1. Place an image in the center with ctrl + click or top-left corner with shift + click Russell
  2. When creating texture maps I sometimes forget to turn off the uv's layer and then see it on my exported texture map. It would be nice if the popup menu for the layer had "Exclude from Export" and then it would ignore that layer when exporting. This would also be helpful for a notes layer, etc., etc. Russell
  3. No matter what tool is being used, I would like to know the x, y location of the mouse pointer / cursor. Maybe put it in the status / info bar at the bottom of the screen.
  4. I was thinking global as in Adobe Illustrator, but after reading some more about it, it sounds like a different feature. I like Illustrator's global color checkbox (in the dialogue panel after you double-click a swatch) which lets you change that 'global' color swatch's color value, then any objects with that color swatch applied to it also gets the new color value. I would like to be able to do this in Affinity also, it's very efficient and keeps you from having to find (and change) every object with that swatch applied to it :)
  5. I just discovered the 'Add Global Colour to Swatch,' but after I added it I couldn't tell the difference in a Local and Global color swatch. Is there a way to do this, or do we need a badge/identifier added to the global color swatches in a future update? Thanks for any help!
  6. I use this colour calculator now and then, sure would be nice to have one in the Studio menu: http://www.sessions.edu/color-calculator It lets you pick a base color and then calculates the Complementary, Monochromatic, Analogous, Split Complementary, Triadic, Tetradic colors ...
  7. My .afdesign files do show up in Finder's preview: I did have problems with no image files showing up in Finder's preview, I think it was after installing a Flash (Player?) update. I had to re-install OSX 10.10.2 to get the previews to show again. Do your other image files show up?
  8. @ ronnyb, it's just geometry. Just duplicate the original letters, make the ones behind fill and stroke orange, then shift the orange ones. Very simple, but effective :)
  9. Hi sreemati, to add a little 'spice' to it without changing it a lot, you could add a flare of the orange from the tag line. I did this by adding a thin white stroke to the black 'O', duplicate the 'O', give the 'O' behind an orange stroke and fill color, then offset the orange 'O' a little. Of course, you can shift it in any direction you like ...
  10. @ peter, Thanks, that's a bit more than I'd like to try. But that is my second favorite album cover, after Out of the Blue :)
  11. You can rotate an egg and give it a transparent elliptical gradient fill to make balloons also
