  1. Ah! I've just realised what's going on! It works if you don't have an artboard, but the moment there's an artboard it won't allow you to modify the margin - I'll get that looked at, thank you!
  2. This sounds like it's falling foul of the new code to help select artboards... I'll ask Ben to look at this straightaway... thanks!
  3. Status: Beta Purpose: Features, Improvements, Fixes Requirements: Purchased Affinity Designer Mac App Store: Not submitted Download: Here Hello, We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the beta of Affinity Designer 1.7 for macOS. Designer 1.7 is a significant change to the currently shipping 1.6 version. Files edited in this version will not be backwards-compatible with the shipping 1.6 version. As such, we would not recommend using this 1.7 version for critical or production work at this stage. It is inevitable that there were will be a number of issues with 1.7 but we hope these will be minor and aim to resolve any issues very quickly, so please use it and explore the new features, but also do keep in mind that you may find snags and we would appreciate your help with finding and reporting these to us. If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, it’s worth noting that the beta will install as a separate app - alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry. It’s also worth noting that we aren’t done yet - we are still working through reported bugs from previous releases and hope to fix as many as possible before the final release of 1.7. With all that said, we hope that you will enjoy the new capabilities introduced in this initial release and we look forward to any and all feedback you give to us. Many thanks, Matt Please refer to previous beta updates for a full list of all changes to date. This latest update builds on the 1.7.0.8 changes and also includes the following changes: Fix for incorrect view background when drawing with Clip to Canvas turned off Live readout of node positions from the Node Tool in the Transform panel Colour picker now available (as it used to be in 1.6!) from the Shape, Gradient Fill, Vector Pencil and Vector Brush tools by holding Alt/Option before the drag Colour fill button now available on the context toolbar of the Gradient tool when a single stop is selected Fix for Lock Children acting erratically for containers that had masks and clips Fix for embedded documents causing hangs Isometric creation tweaks (create-in-plane now works with create-along-axis and create-about-centre) Added a method to help select artboards if you start your drag outside the artboard.

    Moving artboards REALLY slow

    Hi Jens! Definitely sounds like we should take a look if possible? If you wanted to just email it directly to me (mpriestley @ seriflabs (dot) com) then I'll get it looked at straight away - thanks! I'll obviously just use it for this purpose and delete it straight afterwards Many thanks! Matt

    Translation missing (german)

    Please also accept my apologies for the tone of response you have received. I know it's sometimes difficult to convey things properly in written forms and sometimes they come across not quite as they were intended - sometimes even subtle differences can add up to a whole post having a totally different feel/perceived intent and I can only hope this was the case here. Again, I would like to offer my personal apologies and reassure you that when I read your very kind offer I thought nothing other than how generous it was and wished to thank you accordingly. Please, if it is not too late I would like to encourage you not to leave the forums with a sour taste, but instead to try to put the issue to one side and know that your comments were well received and appreciated. As Mark said in the post above, a genuine thank you for your feedback Matt

    Cant turn off snapping

    Can you show a screen capture? Sounds very odd!?
  8. It doesn't work with text at present, but that will come in the future... sorry
  9. That’s what should happen. Try it with arrowheads too. Previously it accidentally showed a coloured, stroked line even in outline mode!
  10. Sorry... Any vector object which you put something else inside. ie Make a circle and then clip some other object inside it.
  11. Give me chance! I'm still pressing the buttons!

Point Transform tool - now has on-document feedback about relative scale and rotation during drag and specific Transform studio information Grid Widget (turned on via grid and axis manager) only allows 'full editing' (editing of scale and angle) while in Move Tool and only when a cube grid is not active
  13. Just drag the handle at the bottom right of the selection frame - shown here:
  14. I’ll build 1.7.0.7 in the morning - it fixes that and many other things
