  1. The GTX 960 is Maxwell 2nd generation, though, so shouldn't it be supported? I've just found this other post of yours which says Maxwell 2nd Generation is supported: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/126698-windows-hardware-acceleration-requirements/
  2. Does this mean the enabling by default is restricted to new cards only, or that the feature overall can only be turned on with newer cards? I have a GTX 960 (as well as a GTX 660 in an even older system) and was hoping to be able to turn on hardware acceleration. I also have a laptop with Intel HD Graphics 520. Am I SOL?
  3. Still hoping that somebody from the Affinity Team will respond to the issue, described in the initial post.
  4. As far as I can tell, the only set of assets included in the Assets Panel in Affinity Designer is for iOS 12. Nothing for any other iOS version, nothing for Android / Material Design, nothing for Windows GUI, etc. This is quite surprising and also quite disappointing. I see there's a free tool called Figma (which I haven't used), which supposedly has lots of assets for designing and prototyping various modern Operating System UIs. Presumably it is therefore easier to do UI design for software applications on iOS/Android/Windows/Mac with something like Figma than it is with Affinity Designer, even though Figma is free?
  5. Yes, GarryP, I agree that the text in the Help is probably a mistake. Nobody from Serif has responded to my comment in this thread about the Help file to confirm, though. I think it's also very valid what I said about the other recent replies missing the point. Reading your reply, I see that the second half of it took a downturn and that you went into some kind of defensive mode, which is also a bit strange though. Did you perhaps notice somebody getting angry in this thread? Perhaps you noticed somebody crying about human rights? Some of us are simply curious about certain functionality and wish to ask a question of the developers. That can sometimes be difficult when fellow users jump in and try to deflect the conversation for some reason. Just a bit funny reading comments such as yours where people come out of nowhere to defend a commercial company they have nothing to do with, as if they've taken some kind of personal offense, especially when nobody even said anything controversial. I see that kind of behaviour quite often in online forums. I guess it takes all kinds, as they say. No need to reply -- I'm not going to get into an argument with you. I just wanted you to know that I found your comments strange.
  6. These latest couple of replies seem to be from people entirely missing the point. The 'New Features' section in the Help seems to indicate that it has now been implemented in v1.8, but as the text is obviously placeholder text that wasn't correctly/fully updated when v1.8 final was released, it's not clear exactly what the situation actually is. Was anything actually implemented, is the text in the Help simply entirely incorrect, was it actually originally intended for 1.8, what is happening now, etc.
  7. I notice that in the Help file for version 1.8, in the 'New features in this version', it says: ▪ GPU acceleration (optimised for ???).
  8. Is GPU hardware acceleration coming to Windows in the v1.8 versions of the Affinity products, or when is it coming? My understanding is that there's currently a major difference in performance depending on whether you use the Mac versions or the Windows versions.
  9. Hi all, I'm new to playing around with DTP, so this might be a very basic question. In Affinity Publisher I've created a new A4 document and turned on the option 'Show Rulers'. Looking at the rulers, I notice that every 4mm is represented by a longer line. In other words, every 4mm is emphasized on the ruler. See my screenshot below. I would have expected a round number, such as every 5mm. Does anybody know what is special about every 4mm? Is this something that has been agreed upon in the publishing world?
  10. This issue where one or more nodes get selected automatically when clicking on on object that's been converted to curves, after the selection was previously on a shape, is still present in v1.6.5.123. Is it still being tracked on your issues list, planning to be fixed? I appreciate that hundreds of bugs have been fixed over the last couple of years, but this one has been waiting for 19 months already since being reported, which I think is quite long.
  11. Is Affinity Designer for iPad going to be introduced at WWDC on Monday? I believe I read somewhere in the forum that the next product you'll be launching (before Affinity Publisher), is Affinity Designer for iPad.
  12. When closing a locked document (such as one of the Examples, opened from the Welcome screen) that has changes, there are 2 things that happen that are inappropriate: 1) You get a prompt asking whether you would like to save your changes. (This makes no sense as you cannot save changes to a locked document). 2) If you click 'Yes' you don't get any error message. The prompt just silently disappears and nothing actually happens. (This is just bad design). This is in Affinity Designer v1.6.4.104.
