  1. My friend, there are some features that must already exist in version 0.1. I wrote it above: some things, such as the deformation of objects, ARE NOT options or features to be implemented in the future to satisfy the whims of users but of TOOLS THAT MUST BE EXISTED already in the very first versions. All vector graphics software provides for distortion of text and graphics. Illustrator, Corel Draw, Inkscape, Xara...now I can't think of any more but everyone has this tool. Affinity can create all the software they want but the clear thing here right now is that there are a lot of people asking for this feature and Affinity pretends to be deaf. Now tell me why I should buy more of their Affinity software if they don't meet some of the essentials. And then, in Affinity's projects, is Designer for iPad part of the 3 things that need to work or was it created to take more money from users? I'm very angry that a company that takes my money doesn't listen to me about the things I need as a designer. I repeat, all this is absurd...
  2. I've read your posts. I understand your opinions and the difficulties that a company may have in carrying out its products. In my home, however, it works that first you do a job and you finish it and then you devote yourself to something else. I believe that Affinity has decided to carry out many projects without making them totally complete. Why not just focus on one product, finish it and then move on to something else? All vector graphics programs have transformation tools. The fact that Affinity Designer doesn't have one is not an option but a shortcoming! I understand if you ask for special features but that of distortion is something essential. I can't buy Affinity Photo just because it's not possible to deform graphic objects on Designer! And among other things, the deformation on Affinity Photo has a loss of quality due to the fact that it is a software that works on the bitmap and not on the vectors. The discontent generated on this matter is that I didn't buy Publisher or Affinity Photo because I don't feel respected as a user. And I think that many people think like me. Not adding this feature will cause many people to decide not to follow Affinity anymore... Affinity you are warned... Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
  3. In fact it is not a tool but a window that manages the spaces of the text (sorry I have the Italian version and I do not know what it is called). There is, in the workspace, a window where I can manage the space between the letters, the lines of a text and so on, but I can not find it. Among other things if I press on the buttons "carattere" (I think that in English is CHARACTER) and "paragrafo" (I think that in English is PARAGRAPH) nothing happens ... Ideas? Thank you Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
  4. ...and in any case I still think it's really absurd that tools of this kind are not in Affinity Designer. I think it's a fundamental function to abandon Adobe products for good. Instead of creating other programs such as porting to the iPad or a new software like InDesign, why not fix what users have been asking for some time? Let's be clear... as a user I don't feel guaranteed. I won't buy other Affinity software until I'm sure I'm supported in my needs. At the moment the purchase of Affinity Designer will remain a random case...
  5. Where I can get that software for mac? Your solution could be a valide alternative to wait that adds!
  6. ...and I have not idea because that happened...sorry for stupid question...
  7. Very very thanks guys! I had "studio" disabled... :O
  8. Good morning guys, I need urgent help because I have to print a table calendar and some compositions between images are lost when I export in PDF. What am I wrong about? Thank you
  9. Anyway there is a way to create a PDF FOR PRINT with gradient mask for you?
  10. I have seen that if I choose PDF FOR PRINT, I get this problem. If I use PDF FOR SHARING/EXPORTING (sorry my version of AD is in italian) the problem do not created...
  11. You're absolutely right. This software promises a lot but then has its legs cut off because there are several things missing to make it really a great softawre to the point that many of us have to go back to using Adobe Illustrator if we need to work with the free transform tool. I think it's really absurd not to listen to what users have been asking for for a long time as they support you and encourage you to improve more and more. Honestly, I'm not interested in iPad versions (which I bought) or versions for publication (like InDesign). I have the impression that they waste of effort and creates a lot of software that is not 100% complete. I think they should first complete one and then switch to the other. So I add myself to the appeal: when will you insert this blessed function? Or is the alternative back to Illustrator? Sorry for my bad english
  12. Hi Callum, thank you for feedback. In fact if I marry the image within the a new artboard in the project the problem seems to disappear...if that were the motivation I could get around the problem by going to create another art board and work there on the images. I'll enclose the settings of the final preferences.
  13. Hello to everyone. I'm working on a project where I need to contour some images. I use the eraser inside "persona pixel" but the image is not erased according to the type of eraser and brush used but it is erased presenting only big squares. If I open the same image on a new project, empty, then the operation is done correctly. The problem always occurs if there are other elements in the same project/page. If the same image is alone then all is ok. Another strange behaviour is this: if the work on the image I want to contour starts working on a new project and then I bring this image on the existing project (so with the other elements present) then I have no problem...

  14. Good morning to everyone. I need create a calendar with numbers and initial letters to realize a calendar. Their position should be with numbers above and days down insert in two lines. Now the problems is that the initial letters are not able to align correct with numbers. If infact I write in the frist line the numbers and then in the second line the letters, these last lost alignment with numbers. Any suggestions? I don’t want create every block of day and numbers manually...
  15. Thank very much to all...I believe that the Reglico method is more intuitive for me. I don't understand very well english dear gdenby and I have several difficult to understand mean of your suggestion. Then my Affinity Designer is in italian languagge so I don't know, for example, if you "call" some tool that I am not able to find because in italian have another name... You speak about widget and grid? You want tell me that Designer have a GRID TOOL? If it is so, then the problem i very esay to solve. With grid should be easy create a calendar with days and dates...
  16. Thank you GabrielM, you write right! Here my file. Thanks! sample.afdesign
  17. Good morning to all, I'm a little worried because I saw that the measurements set on the software do not coincide with the printing. I'm making the covers of some dvd cases and their cover are 15cm wide in length with 12cm high. When printed, the measurements are different (a few millimeters less). I checked the printer and it is set to 100% printing. What am I doing wrong? Is there any option I should check? Thanks to all Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
  18. I'll try to print on another printer...thank you very much!
  19. I believe that the problem is on printer...I print on a "net printer" and it seems don't print to 100%...even if I see a set on 100%
  20. Hello to everyone, I have an iussue with a text on curve. I'm writing "ZETA-CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT" but I see a "Z" letter always out of my path. I want it inside like other of them. I see a little triangle (green and red) inside but I have not understand how them work. Suggestion? Have you manual where I can study this function? Thanks Giovanni
  21. WOW!!! YOU ARE WIZARDS! I have solved it! Thank you very much!
  22. Good morning, for a few days I am not able to produce an SVG logo to send to Autodesk's Thinkercard platform to make a file that to be printed on a 3D printer. If I also make a simple form on Affinity Designer, SVG is not recognized. If I make the same shape but with Illustrator, this SVG is loaded correctly. What do you think is wrong? Tips?
