  1. Hello Tinus, this "Grid artifacts" bug has been around much longer than you might think and I've actually given up asking Affinity Team about it ☹️ My guess: it is very complicated to get the problem under control and requires a complete rewrite of the source code! Because the calculation algorithm is possibly the core of the program and it extends over the whole software range of Affinity!
  2. Hello Chris B, thanks for the suggestion, it works!! It's a bit illogical, because the other filters work without the intermediate step of rasterization, right? .....I actually came across the problem when I used a macro with this filter.
  3. Hello Affinity Team, have discovered a curiosity in the filter (Filters > Noise > Deinterlace > Even Rows & Odd Rows)! As you can see at the beginning of the (Video) example, the deinterlace filter is executed correctly up and down. But as soon as I rotate the image by 90 degrees, the effect of the filter is also rotated by 90 degrees and instead of horizontally, it is executed vertically! For me it looks like a bug!

  4. Tangential snap, e.g. in Designer becomes a game of patience and the result is everything else, but not tangential. There are already a lot of snap functions but they don't help when, for example, two different circles have to be connected tangentially by a line. It would be a very helpful addition to the already existing snap functions to add tangent, quadrant and parallel snap. Finally, these belong to the basic geometric constructions. tangential_snap_00.mp4
  5. Hello MEB, just for fun I loaded the "Arrow lines_expand stroke_problem_non-destructive_add.afdesign" file into the new beta to see the non-destructive function and it seems that the boolean function has been improved. Most of the bugs have disappeared! Well done, you are definitely on the "right" way of coding!!!!
  6. Hello MEB, here is a "non-destructive compound" version with the same "bad" result. Arrow lines_expand stroke_problem_non-destructive_add.afdesign
  7. Here still in example from me, serves for the collection of the failed Boolean function. I have attached the respective drawing, hopefully it can help with troubleshooting! Arrow lines_expand stroke_problem.afdesign
  8. Hello fde101, thank you for reading my report and thank you for pointing that out. As I have already written in the title, this is a "A wealth of suggestions for improvement from three years of intensive productive use" and not, I have "a" suggestion for improvement here. Also, it's just a little bit confusing to find the right thread(s) for my improvements, because there are many with the same or identical suggestions instead of one consolidated thread per suggestion. But as I said, I have summarized my experiences from the current productive environment here which essentially overlap with the suggestions here in the forum and this as far as possible with many keywords, so that it is easier to find and assign it in the forum. In addition, I think that unfortunately there is still a long way to go before the programme is accepted in the professional sector or really gains a foothold. There is still a lack of proven tools to simply keep up with the (big "A"). But in order to overtake the (big "A") and the consorts, you need not only proven but also more innovative tools! I already have over 25 years of experience in graphic design, GUI design, engineering, software development. I've been a (big "A") customer from the beginning and am forced (by the industry) to stay in the Creative Cloud subscription. I can tell you that my customers ( from the engineering sector) basically only require 5 data formats: 10% Adobe PDF (pdf), Encapsulated PostScript (eps,epsf, ps) 20% Adobe Illustrator (ai, ait) 30% AutoCAD interchange file (dxf) 40% AutoCAD Drawing (dwg) whereby the last three (ai, dwg, dxf) are preferred for the reason of subsequent modification or editing. I use Affinity Designer not because I don't have any alternatives but because I like to think outside the box and it is different and varied from the software I use. And because I can perhaps contribute something to the maturing of the program from the beginning and grow with it. One day I would like to be very happy if a customer would ask me to create an *..afdesign file (as an established format) "of his own accord"!
  9. Hello, walt.farrell, Hello, Mark Ingram, thank you for the note and the detailed explanation. Somehow I probably overlooked this behavior in the "Affinity Designer Help". Ok, I can still handle the " View > Studio etc." but the jumping between the "Swatches" and "Colour" is annoying.
  10. Hello, Sean P., Thanks for the advice, I'll keep that in mind for my next report! For me it was logical to mention the bug here instead of in the beta forum, after all this forum area is about the official release and the betas are not released for productive use.
  11. I don't know if it's already reported here but I'm annoyed by this switching behavior when I switch from "Designer Persona" to "Pixel Persona". When I close the tab "Assests" in "Designer Persona", they still appear in "Pixel Persona". Also the colour tabs on the right side jump between "Swatches" and "Colour". So for my understanding, if I close the "Assets" window in one editing area it should not appear in the other editing area and if I select a colour tab it should not be toggled.

  12. Found a problem with the language conversion here. For me personally it is not so tragic. I have already got used to the English version and so have my customers. Besides it is easier to get along here in the forum! I use Win10 German Version and after every update of Affinity products I change the language to "English". Everything works except under the menu "Swatches", color names appear in German. I suppose it is related to the language of the operating system! What to think: For me it would make sense if there was a language selection menu during installation where the operating system language is automatically selected and the user has the choice to install in another language or just click on "Install"! E.g. My colleague always switches the programs to his native language (since operating system is Win10 in English, he works in Germany and his native language is Spanish)! Is logical or?
