  1. Thank you, Alfred. Unfortunately your suggestion doesn't work with Japanese vertical text writing since hyphens have to be vertical in Japanese when it's written vertically as well as the alignments of all the punctuations are not in correct position. As wasetsu_an mentioned, it also doesn't work with multiple line phrases. But thank you for your input!
  2. Hi there, I am in love with Affinity Designer and excited for more new features to come with the future updates. One of the features I'd like to request is vertical writing for languages like Japanese. Right now, I press enter letter by letter to make them lined up vertically, but it is a bit of a headache when it comes to hyphens, periods, commas and etc. I wonder if you guys could consider implementing this writing format for the future updates. I'm sorry if this function already exists, but can anyone kindly let me know how? thanks

    Japanese text bugs

    I have the exact same problem and it's quite frustrating since it didn't happen before updating to Ver. 1.6.1. I have to press the arrow to take off the highlight before keeping typing to the next. Hopefully it will get fixed. And I also LOVE AD!! Amazing software ever!
  4. Hi there, I have been experiencing crashes on AD 1.5.4. It sometimes happens randomly and I understand that it just happens sometimes; however, today, I have experienced 5 crashes when I go to pixel persona and select brush pain tool. I wonder if anyone knows how to prevent this problem. The crash doesn't happen every time I select the brush tool in pixel persona but once in a while. I'm using AD on macOS Sierra 10.12.3. Thank you.
  5. Hi carl123, sorry for not responding to your question for a long time. The video tutorial was on Lynda.com.
  6. I have the same problem except mine happens very randomly. Right now, I was going back the history and crashed. In another time, I chose a brush to paint in pixel persona and when I was ready, it crashed... It was working greatly when I first started using the trial and now it's started happening from the day 2 very often and randomly. I love the program so much and am considering purchasing it but these random and frequent crashes make me hesitant to do so. I hope it will be fixed soon. I'm using the trial 1.5.4 on macOS Sierra 10.12.3.
  7. carl123, thank you so much! Oh wow... how come I didn't see that... lol I feel so dumb now. So for now, there's no way to see it from the first time dragging it from the ruler, is that correct? One of the tutorial videos I watched showed that the number showed without releasing it and reselecting. So I assume it has been changed for the new version since the tutorial was using an earlier version of the program.
  8. Hi. I just downloaded Affinity Design Trial yesterday and I like it so much. However, I need a little help here and it's probably a simple solution, but I seem not to be able to find it. When I'm trying to set guides on my work, it doesn't not show me the exact number of where it is. For example, If I'd like to have a guide 0.5 inch off of the edge, I drag a guide from a ruler and guess where it is by looking at the ruler and then I go to guides manager to change the number to exactly where I want it to be. I know I can do it directly from guides manager as well, but it's easy for me if I could see those numbers while I'm dragging guides from the rulers. Where can I turn on that function? I hope my question is clear.
