  1. RC-R...."We" means more than one. Some people like to pick the "Fly S#@t out of the pepper." Sticking to the subject of Affinity Designer not being updated for "almost" a year and that does not count for beta testing that is not the finished product. I understand this is all a business move by Serif. That is their choice. But it does affect the users who would love to use their software for their individual needs.
  2. Yes R C-R, what day is it? A year later. You don't have any idea what they are working on..... or do I. But I know that it has been a year now since they have fixed anything. So are you trying to argue semantics again?
  3. The basic point here, as I and PeanutsA are saying is, Serif has too many irons in the fire. Everyone expected something from Serifs AD (updates) and got nothing for the last year. I think it has hurt them from the response of people in different forums that have moved away from Affinity Designer. It's almost a joke when people are requesting something in AD and they are not doing anything but working on something else. So bugs don't get fixed, implementation of items on the roadmap doesn't get created and we sit here watching arguments over semantics. Bottom line, people are upset, and you can try and color it any way you want. But nothing is happening for a year.
  4. Give me a break. You know what I am talking about, just as everyone else knows what is being said. Trying to be right just for the reason of being right does not make any difference to what is meant here.
  5. Hum-mm...Number and check off what has been done. Sounds good. But then, we have been waiting since 2014 for those things to be done. Plus waiting a year (or more) for bugs to be fixed. I think that is what is really getting to everyone: The waiting.

    Thanks, MEB, that did it. Mark, Thanks, but I couldn't even see the color pallet drop down box.

    Using AD Does not show different Swatch pallet choices. Only has Greys.

    Thank you Staner555.
  9. I have to agree with you Jan. As I have said earlier, it seems, all of their work has gone toward the iPad version of AD and I would guess their next release: Publisher. I find it funny because I sit and watch all of the requests for updates and fixes, but nothing is happening. I wonder if they have too many irons in the fire for their workforce? They do have a good product for the price. but there is still a lot to accomplish for the people they are trying to reach.
  10. R C-R, I think that from past updates. I've been here from the very beginning and this has been the largest time period with no updates. But now I am glad to hear of some updates coming up.....
  11. Well, now I see why we haven't gotten an update (beta or regular) in the last few months. It looks like all of the work went to the New iPad Affinity Designer. Well, maybe, things will start happening with Desktop software again.

    Good to hear your opinion SrPx. I agree with a lot of what you are saying. Having an account with Autodesk does not mean you have to buy anything. Autodesk set the new version of Sketchbook 8.6 up to last in subscription for 100 years as of the end of this year. They say they will update....we will see on that. But you can download and save the execute file so you will always have it. I can still download the old version 6 and use it. But then, it doesn't have all of the new goodies. Krita looks like a good program. But for the Mac, it has been hit or miss. I've written on their forum and now we have a new programmer who is going to take it on for the Mac side. But there will be a learning curve. Clip Studio Paint is a great program. It has some very cool things one can do with a layer, among other things. But there has been a buzz going around about the forum going away. And if so, I don't know what will happen with CSP. And like I said earlier, I think Affinity Design has the best vector program going for the dollar. Everyone has different criteria for their way of working. That's what makes having all of the different resources helpful for each one of us. Have a great day!

    Alfred, It just ended up that way. I decided to try different programs to see how they worked for me. Believe me, when I say, I support a lot of different software's out there. I love Affinity Designer for vector work, but not for this. For this, I tried Affinity Photo, Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint, Metibang Pro, and Sketchbook Pro working with a Wacom Intuos 5 tablet. Photoshop had one of the best brushes and brush feedback (except for the cursor, I was always trying to find). But trying to zoom in and use a 3-pixel brush was not the best representation. Not to mention the rent payment. Metibang Pro (Free) had a slight delay in the brush stroke (with a few other flaws). Sketchbook Pro has always been one of my favorites programs, but I could see some of its limitations. It came down to Affinity Photo (great brushwork) and Clip Studio Paint. Affinity Photo still has some quirks going on with its layers I talked about this in another post. It cost me some loss of work (2 hours worth) the first time, and the second time I had something happen where I ended up with a pixel layer saying (pixel) 3 times in the layer. How that happened, I don't know. The layer has just got to be selected in the correct place or something else will happen. But I kept trying with Affinity Photo until I decided that Clip Studio Paint had just about everything I needed in an art program. Now, this is just my opinion. Everyone has a different way of painting and drawing. CSP fit me more. But I will keep watching and trying AP. It is a very good program that I hope, will replace Adobe PS completely one of these days.
