  1. Hi, i know this topic was already suggested elsewhere, however devs never answered any of these threads, nor commented on this feature at all. So here we go again. I work as a UI designer, which mostly includes web design. Therefore I need a way to share my work with non-designer programmers. Not just exports but other stuff like typography, dimensions, margins etc. Other software integrates with services like Avocode or Zeplin (namely Photoshop, Sketch). This makes Affinity much less useful for web designer as I am pressed to hand all the information over to web developers. So I would like to know whether Serif devs plan to include such integration or release its own solution. This is an essential feature for designers like me and very long time overdue. Please, Serif, comment on this finally.
  2. I love when I randomly go to the forums and there is a new major new beta release available. Wish my top priority feature would be introduced - text exported as text in PSD export - but hey, I take it as it is.
  3. Could devs react to this thread please? It is quite essential issue, devs pressuring me to switch to Photoshop which is the last thing I would want. Help me out here...
  4. Hey, Have been using Affinity for two years now and I never looked back after using Sketch and Photoshop. However I work in a big company now and I have a serious issues with exporting design for other people. Coders usually export project exported in PSD, they can also work with Sketch files (with Avocode and such). However PSD export is pretty useless since AD exports text as a bitmap and Avocode support is nowhere to be seen. The only way for me is to export all elements for the projects and put notes to every text aresa so coders know the font size/color/weight, which is very time consuming. Please help me out here, I would love to advocade AD to other colleagues but luck of proper export for coders to use holds the app back big time. I would be really sad if I needed to switch back to other apps just because of this. Mike
  5. Does this update fix the black canvas problem? Every time Macbook goes to sleep and it’s woken up, all project’s canvases are plain black and I have to reopen every file to fix it. Very annoying.
  6. Thank you! Actually any distortion (at least freeform) would do. Completely overlooked it in the roadmap. Can’t wait.
  7. Hi, I wanted to ask you if there are plans for a transformation/perspective tool in AD. The current skewing is very limited while Affinity Photo has a spectacular perspective tool. Juggling between apps just for this functions feels like a stretch and adding perspective to a text is quite common thing to do in design. I am just wondering since I don’t see a transformation tool in feature roadmap therefore I want to ask if you indeed plan this feature for AD.
  8. The problem I had in RC2 with changing fonts from toolbar has been fixed, yay! The font selection is active once again, no need to go to Character window to change it anymore.
  9. I do get All Fonts in character window. In the console I didn’t find any recent error message for AD beta. Currently I am running OS X 10.10.2 on MacBook Air 13" mid-2013 (MacBookAir6,2)
  10. Not sure if it was reported but I found serious bug in RC2. Basically I cannot change font of the text. The font selection box is disabled and it even doesn’t show the currently selected font. The only way for me to change typeface is via Character window. See attachment.
  11. Thanks for that information, completely overlooked it. Anyway I think the inner outline and expanding curve is the way to go with the hole thing
  12. I see. I usually use inner outline and then expand the stroke. But since there is a problem with corners being cut I get your point.
  13. Why not just substracting a circle from any shape?
