  1. Looks like you have the "about" screen still displayed above the new file dialogue. You might need to press the escape key a couple of times. to clear both dialogues and then do a File > New and you should be able to the create a new file. UPDATE: Didn't spot that the question has already been answered in this thread
  2. It is a beta plugin for a Home Automation system written in Python - it reads, edits and saves the SVG to update values depending on the state of a device. :)
  3. I am trying to open a SVG file in Designer that displays correctly in Safari and Firefox. When I select the file in Finder and and ask to open it in Designer, I get an error: The file could not be parsed The file content is: <ns0:svg xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:ns0="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:ns2="http://creativecommons.org/ns#" xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" height="160" id="svg2" version="1.1" viewBox="0 0 160 160" width="160"> <ns0:metadata id="metadata4149"> <rdf:RDF> <ns2:Work rdf:about=""> <dc:format>image/svg+xml</dc:format> <dc:type rdf:resource="http://purl.org/dc/dcmitype/StillImage" /> <dc:title /> </ns2:Work> </rdf:RDF> </ns0:metadata> <ns0:defs id="defs4" /> <ns0:circle cx="80" cy="80" id="bgCircle" r="72" style="fill:#000000;fill-opacity:1;stroke:#666666;stroke-width:16;stroke-miterlimit:4;stroke-dasharray:none;stroke-opacity:1" /> <ns0:circle cx="80" cy="80" id="dial" r="72" style="fill:none;fill-opacity:1;stroke:#4ac71f;stroke-width:16;stroke-linecap:butt;stroke-linejoin:miter;stroke-miterlimit:4;stroke-dasharray:452.3893421;stroke-dashoffset:180.9557368;stroke-opacity:1" /> <ns0:text id="txtValue" style="font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;font-weight:bold;font-stretch:normal;font-size:43.3609581px;line-height:100%;font-family:sans-serif;-inkscape-font-specification:'sans-serif, Bold';font-variant-ligatures:none;font-variant-caps:normal;font-variant-numeric:normal;text-align:center;letter-spacing:0px;word-spacing:0px;writing-mode:lr-tb;text-anchor:middle;fill:#ffffff;fill-opacity:1;stroke:none;stroke-width:0.26458329px;stroke-linecap:butt;stroke-linejoin:miter;stroke-opacity:1" x="80" y="90"> <ns0:tspan id="tspan4163" style="stroke-width:0.26458329px">12%</ns0:tspan> </ns0:text> <ns0:text id="text4165" style="font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;font-weight:bold;font-stretch:normal;font-size:16px;line-height:100%;font-family:sans-serif;-inkscape-font-specification:'sans-serif, Bold';font-variant-ligatures:none;font-variant-caps:normal;font-variant-numeric:normal;text-align:center;letter-spacing:0px;word-spacing:0px;writing-mode:lr-tb;text-anchor:middle;fill:#666666;fill-opacity:1;stroke:none;stroke-width:0.26458329px;stroke-linecap:butt;stroke-linejoin:miter;stroke-opacity:1" x="80" y="110"> <ns0:tspan id="tspan4167" style="font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;font-weight:bold;font-stretch:normal;font-size:16px;line-height:100%;font-family:sans-serif;-inkscape-font-specification:'sans-serif, Bold';font-variant-ligatures:none;font-variant-caps:normal;font-variant-numeric:normal;text-align:center;writing-mode:lr-tb;text-anchor:middle;fill:#666666;fill-opacity:1;stroke-width:0.26458329px">LEVEL</ns0:tspan> </ns0:text> <ns0:rect height="5" id="tick" style="opacity:1;fill:#ffffff;fill-opacity:1;stroke:none;stroke-width:10;stroke-linecap:butt;stroke-linejoin:miter;stroke-miterlimit:4;stroke-dasharray:none;stroke-dashoffset:100;stroke-opacity:1" transform="rotate(216, 80, 80)" width="20" x="140" y="77.5" /> </ns0:svg> If I insert the following line at the start: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> and edit out all occurrences of ns0: then the file edits OK. Can the original be made to work in Designer as it does in Safari and Firefox?
  4. I am using Affinity Designer (V1.5.4) on an Apple Mac. There seems to be a problem (or bug?) with the Flip Horizontal command (using the Toolbar button) on a text frame in that it doesn't flip the text. The little resize text dot in the bottom right moves to the bottom left but that is all. If you do a Flip Vertical command, that works as expected. The little resize text dot in the bottom right moves to the top right and the text is flipped. Is this a bug or is expected behaviour? It is a bit counter intuitive as it is at the moment. :unsure:
