  1. I'm surprised that someone would actually say not to make these assets available as a single download. Here's where I'm coming from: I've been working in CG for about 30 years and now I run a non-profit breastfeeding education organization with my wife. We have built it from scratch and provide a ton of resources for breastfeeding providers. For example, we have 60 handouts that people can give to their patients. They are all pdfs. I have them linked on our website so they can be viewed individually and of course I bundle them all into a zip as a convenience for our members to download them. It's basic customer service - I wouldn't even consider not doing that. Hence my request in this thread. If you don't think it's necessary that's fine.
  2. Another way to compensate for this is to open a second window (View/New Window) to the file and place it so both windows can be viewed. The bounding box will only show in the window with focus.
  3. Re: using the spacebar - if you are mousing over or using the arrows to change the values in a numeric input field, such font size, scale or position and you hit the spacebar, the spaces are added to the numerical input. Re "Hide while dragging": what about when you just want a little tweak using the arrow keys? I've been working in CG for 30 years. Every time I use AD and AP, I wonder how a major graphics package has managed not to implement this basic feature.
  4. I just purchased 3 cool products from the Affinity store. To download them, I see 40 individual download buttons. Is there not a zip with all the files for each product? Thanks.
  5. Oops, my bad - I was loading the selection from a layer that had a drop shadow applied, so that was added to the selection.🙄
  6. In AP, I make a selection, copy flattened, then "New from Clipboard". The new file is larger than the selection with ~50 pixels of transparency along the right and bottom of the new image. Am I missing something? Thx.
  7. Its a very annoying hindrance not to be able to hide the bounding box of the currently selected object in both AF and AP. Such a basic oversight has been hard to fathom all these years... Finally, I've discovered a workaround: Open the Outer Shadow effect and choose the Offset Tool. You can now select any layer and use the arrow keys to move it and see exactly what your image looks like. Note that you can use the 'v' key to toggle to the arrow and back the Offset Tool. Unfortunately you can't use the Transform Box w/the Offset Tool, (nor can you use it when pressing the spacebar).

  10. Sorry, I didn't get notified of your reply. Yes, it is U3011. The monitor has hardware based presets accessed via an onscreen menu. One of the presets is Adobe RGB, but any of them besides the default ("Standard") look awful. All of the whites get tinted. When I get a chance, I'll try some of the tests you suggest. I want to move to a 4k monitor, but I'm waiting for 4K touchscreen.
  11. # 1 Request: Add capability to make selection indicators permanently hidden. Using the spacebar is inconvenient and fails in some cases, such as when text is highlighted or the cursor is in a numerical entry pane. Same for Affinity Photo. We can't see our exact image through those distractions.
  12. It would be helpful to add "Don't export Artboards hidden by export persona". As it is not, if all of the layers on an artboard are hidden, the artboard is included as a blank page in the pdf. Thx.
