  1. It's simply because, if you used a preset of an iPad, for example, you could preview while you work at retina or standard pixels and then when you output at 1x or 2x you got the thing you were seeing while you were designing.
  2. Status: Release Candidate Purpose: Features, Improvements, Fixes Requirements: Purchased Affinity Designer for iPad From App Store App Store: Submitted Download link: Join the TestFlight Hello, We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Affinity Designer Beta 1.9.0 for iPad.

  4. Oooooh, I wonder if that's a patentable feature? lol
  5. We're talking about operations performed on documents with many objects. Physical document size has never really meant much in Designer until you start adding raster layers - and even then we should scale fairly well... Incidentally it's worth stating that in the future, we'll be able to scale to huge numbers of document objects much faster than we currently can... so don't fear

  8. Incidentally @Gear maker I think I've fixed the issue you mentioned with artefacts being left on the screen after resizing that object and dragging it around - so hopefully the next beta might tempt you back
  9. The problem is that those 'miscellaneous' items are usually things which the dev spots or nails down before they've even been brought to their attention as issues... If there's something like "Attempted to fix a long standing, widely reported problem" needs saying on the release list, it will most certainly be on the release list, so don't worry about missing it! I do agree that for testers it would be fantastic to have as much info as possible, but we have a very limited number of developers - who have very little spare time - it's not that it hasn't been thought of, it's more that it's hard to find the headspace and opportunity to log these things somewhere
  10. @Hokusai - I have managed to reproduce and fix the issue you clearly show - thank you! @Gear maker - I can't find a good reason for the behaviour you've experienced, but I think it's not unreasonable to assume that something was amiss at some point during the early betas and is hopefully resolved now. Please do let me know if you see anything further though
  11. I have to say this, unfortunately, that if something hasn't been explicitly stated as fixed, it's not reasonable to list it as still not fixed - because we haven't said we've fixed it yet. If everyone did this then we would have a number of pages full of things that aren't fixed yet. That's simply not helpful. The Divide operation has been fixed in a development branch, to the best of my knowledge, but this is currently unreleased. A fix is coming, but it is not appropriate to put it into this version at present as the potential for disruption is far too high at this stage. These long-standing issues are not ignored and they are not somehow classed as 'okay'... we simply haven't forgotten about them just because you see no obvious movement. As mentioned in the other forum post, Sean reiterated that the bug is logged and with development. Progress was being made and we're looking better with a comprehensive fix now, but it needs time and appropriate phases of development to launch this to the public. Many thanks for bearing with us, I know it's not easy looking in from the outside when there is only so much we can say :) Matt
