  1. I'd like to test it again when anchored images/other content can reflow with the text looking at the changelog I can't see it - have I misread it?
  2. CorelDraw just popped up with a Mac version. It has a bitmap to vector function (which was in their classic product 10+ years ago...) https://www.coreldraw.com/en/product/coreldraw/mac/ I really think Designer would benefit from this.
  3. still waiting for reflowing embedded content like images .... it's really critical for any DTP workflow .. I know Affinity say it's on the to-do list but it should be a higher priority than some of the things on that changeling list ... let's put it plainly - DTP is not Designer with Pages - it's for working with documents of many pages .. changes to layout, styles, margins, boxes, .. will cause text to move .. and you want anchored content like diagrams to also move intelligently .. you don't want to do that manually for documents of more than 5 pages. that is pretty core.
  4. Given how terrible the initial Affinity Publisher beta was .. and how it has drastically improved as a result of many people here doing testing, and providing suggestions, some of which will be critical to the success of the product (master pages, embedded images reflowing, etc) .. .. who agrees that Affinity should reward this in some way. I don't expect they'll pay a share of their profits .. even though the product would likely have been a flop without the advice provided by friends here... perhaps a discount or reimbursement scheme would be more realistic?
  5. thanks! that's helpful (I'll add this as a suggestion as it should be quick)
  6. ok - is there a recommended way of doing this with some accuracy?
  7. thanks - I tried it and yes it does snap to edges .. but not the centre of the canvas .. is this possible? cutting out the centre is a very common use case
  8. I often use the crop tool. It would be incredibly helpful if it could be aligned / snap to common objects and guides. For example: snapping to objects. snapping to edge aligning to centre of document That last one would be incredibly helpful. Currently cropping is entirely manual I believe.
  9. Hi I am a heavy user of the alignment options (see pic). I find the number of mouse moves and clicks is slowing my workflow down. Can I assign presets to keyboard shortcuts? If so, how? I want to select a bunch of objects and press the key combination for them to be aligned according to the preset.
  10. hi @GabrielM - yes of the several apps Ive looked at only the Affinity ones do this. To be clear - the font rendering Mojave does on non-retina displays is terrible but the Affinity Apps seem to have a particularly bad rendering. Note there is a difference between the "Flip Vertical" rendering and the "Steps" 1" rendering so they may be using a different font or UI toolkit? Perhaps have Affinity detect the type of display and use a more readable font? After all - we've had 40 years of legible fonts on non-retina displays ... :)
  11. This is a screenshot of Affinity Photo on a non-retina Macbook Air 2017. You can see the font rendering is so bad it is unreadable in places. Look for the word "steps" under "Fip Horizontal" and "Flip Vertical" I know that MacOS Mojave changed font rendering. I have observed this issue with and without this commonly suggested remedy: defaults write -g CGFontRenderingFontSmoothingDisabled -bool FALSE Please can this be added to the bug tracker.

  13. What are your wishes for Affinity Publisher for 2019? Mine are simple: master pages that work as design templates embedded content (images) that reflow with text <fingers crossed>
