  1. Callum, thanks for your reply. Current workaround: Prior adding a new color, always delete the color swatch or rename the existing one. I don't think a checkbox would be required. If the color name has not been renamed, it should be updated based on current colour value. I hope this makes sense. It happened to me multiple times that I was using a previous color value. Any chance that we can move this thread to the Feature Requests section?
  2. I am looking for a way to set the colour name automatically based on colour value in Affinity Designer. When you change a colour value in a Indesign document, it automatically changes the colour name accordingly within the swatches window. It's a huge timesaver. When you add a colour to the swatches panel, Affinity applies the colour value name. However when I change a existing colour within the swatches panel, it shows the previously colour value. It looks like I have to manually change the colour value. How can I do that in Affinity Designer or Affinity Publisher?
  3. I am also interested in 'Simulate Paper Color' feature. I have been using it all the time in Adobe Indesign to check how colour behaves on Yellowish oder uncoated paper. We should move this thread to the Feature Requests section.
  4. Congratulations. well deserved

    Polar coordinates and arcs

    I am also interested in a Polar Grid Tool implementation.
  6. Wow, thanks for your fast reply. Anyway, thank you for moving to the feature request section.
  7. Hi there, does Affinity Designer provide a Polar Grid Tool like AI? I’d like to create Polar coordinates. (see attached image). Currently the only workaround is to creating multiple circle and split and merge them. Thanks,
  8. MEB: Thank you for getting back on my original question and your in-depth explanation.
  9. MEB, thank you for your quick reply. yes, I have also uploaded both pattern layers as separate file. Compatibility with Photoshop isn’t that important to me. I’d rather prefer using Affinity and export the final result. This time it was a very simple document, so re-creating the file in Photoshop wasn’t a big deal. However pattern layers should not be missing on PNG/JPG
  10. I see. Actually this is not what I was looking for. It would be much more consistent to add the system-wide option "Hide extension" to the bottom left corner.
  11. Hi there, I am trying to show File Extensions on the export dialog. In Preferences in the General tab I have unchecked »Automatically Hide Extension«. The Suffix should be explicitly visible. However File Extensions still do not show up when I choose a file name. Same issue in Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer. What can I do?
