  1. Thanks
    tariq got a reaction from Patrick Connor in upgraded to Catalina - "no purchases", lost Affinity apps!   
    looks like it is an Apple issue - other are seeing the problem too
    (I only have one Apple ID)

    tariq got a reaction from CLC in 1.7 introduced "tab" to hide UI bug   
    In previous versions I could use TAB to toggle away the panels and tools - which was useful in full-screen demonstrations or screen recordings .. I could show the full image without tools / UI in the way
     
    Now in 1.7 the first TAB takes everything away - great.
     
    But TAB again doesn't bring them back and I have to re-enable 3 vows:
     * view - studio - unhide studio
     * show tools
    * show context toolbar
    and maybe another one
     
    when not in full screen mode this toggling is ok , the bug happens when clicking that macOS "green button" window decorator to go full screen ...

    tariq got a reaction from habibandpatia in keyboard shortcut for alignment   
    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.

    tariq got a reaction from Chris B in 1.7 introduced "tab" to hide UI bug   
    thanks @Chris B
     
    I've found the steps to reproduce it
    open photo, with tools/bars/tabs normal TAB toggles then on/off edit a doc - eg brush on canvas quit (cmd-Q) when in full screen mode open Photos again and this time there are no toolbars and tab toggle fails  
    video attached - TAB is first shown to work, then failing at 30-36 seconds..

    tariq got a reaction from Catshill in styles for image frames   
    for larger projects with 100s of image frames - having styles that apply to picture/image/other frames would be very useful and support the DTO workflow
     
    example - I want to use styles so that I can easily change the following features of, perhaps 200 picture frames to which the style has been applies:
    border colour and width justification - eg centre size - eg % of frame width or absolute inches aspect ratio - set or adjust to image maintaining given width etc..

    tariq got a reaction from habibandpatia in Picture Frame - can't delete or unpin   
    I seem to have got stuck with a Picture Frame which I can't delete or "unpin" event hough it appears not to be pinned.
    Selecting from the Layers menu also shows Delete as greyed out.
    Restarting Affinity Publisher and reloading the file doesn't help..
    I've noticed this frame has no "pin" int the text.

    tariq got a reaction from Patrick Connor in crash clicking on Master Page   
    I am using the latest 1.7.2 in latest macOS 
    Clicking back from the normal pages to the master page and then click in a text frame on the master page... led to an unexpected crash
    I sent the report to Apple which I hope helps you

    I really miss these features from else where:
    Interpolate - CorelDraw had it, as does Inkscape it seems: https://vid-sign.blogspot.com/2014/02/how-to-learn-interpolate-and-pattern.html Bitmap trace - from bitmap to vector drawing - incredibly useful. Illustrator has it.

    agreed - it is a massive oversight and would have been picked up by proper user research. lets hope it gets fixed soon. ive been telling them for months not to just make a Designer with pages...

    looking at the changelog I can't see it - have I misread it?

    tariq reacted to MrDoodlezz in aligning crop rectangle   
    Hey guys,
    the alignment/snapping of the frame with objects on the canvas has been missing here for quite some time, if I remember correctly I already asked for it several years ago – because almost all tools have the possibility to constrain each other, except the Crop Tool.
    I would really love to see the option to align the crop frame to objects on the desktop soon – it would be incredibly helpful to save further steps and workarounds in the workflow.
    Cheers

    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.

    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.

    tariq got a reaction from jmwellborn in reward for beta-testers and suggestion makers?   
    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?

    tariq got a reaction from Patrick Connor in affinity interface on non-retina displays and Mojave   
    This is a screenshot of Affinity 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  
    Any suggestions?
