  1. That looks fantastic! Well done! ๐Ÿ‘
  2. What an awesome job - well done! You should be very proud of your work - bravo!
  3. I have one of those on the shelf in my garage!
  4. Looks like decoupage - I loved doing that when I was little! ๐Ÿ‘
  5. You're lucky you're not on macOS 12.0.1 - I was just discussing this the other day in the office that there is NO selection in those dialogs now, you have to tab to it or click it! It's apparently fixed in the next macOS update though...
  6. Also useful to keep in mind that this is the 'layer colour', so will also be reflected in the tool UI for that layer. If you happened to be drawing something very blue (for example) the standard layer colour of blue would mean that your tool UI would be fairly hard to see, so you could set it to red and then it would show up nicely when you worked with objects on that layer
  7. Please use the 1.10.5 release build there is no later beta Status: Beta Purpose: Improvements, Fixes Requirements: Purchased Affinity Designer Mac App Store: Not Submitted Download: Download <download link removed by mod> Auto-update: Not available Hello, If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, itโ€™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. This beta is an incremental update to the 1.10.4 version recently released to all customers (although it still installs parallel to the released version, as described above). We recommend that you use this beta in preference to the store version if you are affected by any of the issues listed below. Thanks again for your continued support! Many thanks! Matt Changes This Time - Mitigated UI stalls caused by a bug in macOS 12.0.1 (as best we can, things won't be back to normal until Apple fix the underlying issue).
  8. Absolutely wonderful! I'm in London on Thursday - this makes me very tempted to drag the kids a little out of our way to go and see it!
  9. AMAZING work as always! I really look forward to seeing your creations!

Matt Special Note: Yes, I know we haven't released 1.10.2 yet - so why the change to 1.10.3 all of a sudden? Well, quite simply, we were forced to update the iOS version just after our 1.10.2 release due to a late-breaking change to iOS 15.0.2 which introduced serious stability problems with the layers panel. We'd like all the software to be at the same version, so we're moving to 1.10.3 for this release to match it. Changes This Time - Optimised for new ProMotion 120hz screen, M1 Pro and M1 Max - Architecture changes when Metal compute acceleration is enabled in order to better support M1 Pro and M1 Max

Matt Changes This Time - Fixed document with 'Save History' failing to save after promoting a Group to a Layer. - Fixed PSD import of Linear Burn blend mode being imported as Multiply. - Assorted small fixes.
  12. Marble Madness!!!! (not that I spent a lot of my childhood playing it... of course... cough, cough...)
  13. All Affinity products should be reusing the same in-memory representation of the data, whether it be placed as linked or embedded. There should be very little memory overhead for copy/pasting the image multiple times into the same document. If there's something odd going on, then we really need an example document or source image to work from and follow your recipe to investigate?

They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry. This beta is no longer considered to be an incremental update to the 1.9.3 version recently released to all customers. As such, we strongly recommend that you do not use this beta for real work as data could be lost and the files you save are not guaranteed to open in previous / future versions of Affinity Designer. Thanks again for your continued support! Many thanks! Matt Changes This Time - Added 'Select Parent', 'Select Top' and 'Select Bottom' for helping with selecting commonly required elements. This is super-useful for large documents where using the layers panel is very difficult - Tweaked a recently introduced rendering issue with clips and blend modes Changes Since 1.9.3 - Potentially huge performance improvements for large documents. We've spent a long time looking at this and have improved performance many-fold for large documents and improved scalability. If you have particular documents that still appear 'too slow' then feel free to share them with me and I'll do my best to look into them - Memory handling improvements - Support for Emojis in text tools! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป - Further performance improvements to general operations - Misc text performance improvements - SVG import and export tweaks - Fixed PDF Export group opacity potentially being applied twice - Fixed potential crash when quitting with layers still on the clipboard - Fix for Trotec Job Control incompatibility - Improvements to noise rendering when used on colours - Fix for inserting an embedded document, which was incorrectly favouring an in-memory version of the document if you were trying to add it again - Fix for a potential deadlock most often noticed while painting with a pixel brush - Fix for documents being offered to the clipboard in RGB8 format even when the document is CMYK, for example - Fix for SVG export failing to correctly deal with stretched text when the user selects 'flatten transforms' - Fix for SVG import not functioning correctly with whitespace between the keyword "translate" and the following opening bracket - Fix for a potential deadlock when opening files with many (potentially large) images - Many text tweaks - particularly relating to how pinned objects are handled when opened from a Publisher document - Potential view drawing speed improvement - Localisation improvements - Help improvements
