  1. Hey guys, about the construction mode … this works only with Pen and Node tool right now, right? I guess/hope other tools will follow? Right now I’d like to construct a figure based around circles, but I can’t get either the mode to work or the lines to show. Or am I just missing something in the menus? In any case, the tool is already very promising! Without the option to actually access circle shapes and align them to the design shapes, it's a bit limited in its usefulness for now. Cheers MrDoodlezz
  2. Oh well, thanks for your kinda snarky appearing reply. Great suggestion, and yes, I’ve already tried latest available beta before even thinking about a post. I just wanted to make sure that I understood this new tool, which has a different name, correctly and express how happy I am that this practical tool is finally being implemented after more than 4 years of working with Designer. Cheers
  3. No way! Construction mode, huh? To me this looks an damn lot like my favourite plug-in for some not-so-favourite software I’d rather not mention any longer. Okay, maybe one last time: is this what Astute Graphics is for AI? But like … it comes as a part of the package? Guys if it is – and I think it is – I am infinitely grateful for this. I really am. It’s such a handy, mighty and convenient tool! Can’t wait for it to be fully implemented! Sorry, but this is like … like it’s early Christmas to me right now. Haha, this is awesome!

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta (

    Very cool additions coming to Photo (and Designer as well)! I see, you’ve also included some … stranger layer style presets to play around with as well, thanks!
  5. Hey, Lee D, Thanks for your answer. Resetting the app sounds a lot like deleting user data at first - do I really delete all my preferences, filters, actions, etc.? That's why I haven't tried it yet. I just tested it again, only to rule out that it wasn't just a "bad day". But no, I still get a black background and a resized image. Cheers MrDoodlezz
  6. Hey guys, today I encountered this strange bug : If I copy a PNG from the browser to the clipboard and then use the command "New From Clipboard" to create a new document, a new document is generated where the image is reduced to a black background layer and additionally scaled smaller instead of the original image on a transparent background. Has anyone ever encountered this bug and knows why this happens? I have already tested copying different images and from different browsers, always with the same result. Many greetings MrDoodlezz
  7. Hey, guys, this option is also missing in my current workflow, I use it quite often. I thought I might not have searched properly, but I think it is missing currently – actually there are some other special characters missing, I guess. Let's keep our fingers crossed that they will be implemented in some future versions. @machadodesign: Maybe add a few tags, so admins and users may find this request easier/faster if they search for keywords. Cheers MrDoodlezz
  8. I've already figured that out. Though, a new version is not really a reason to shrink the roadmap and therefore withhold information on existing inquiries that were already requested in previous versions more than a year ago. And that's quite a lot by now. My point is that it would be more efficient to comment on community requested features as concretely as possible and provide their status if they are already in development or not. Without accurate feedback, the invitation for inquiries (as promoted in every video) makes no sense. Otherwise the same feature requests will appear in the forum time and again (just like it happened to me the last time ) because maybe not everyone uses the right keywords or the option to tag to the full extent. Thus many requests are lost in the crowd. With a more transparent, fixed and up-to-date roadmap/thread (just as it was originally thought) the effort for requests and features on both sides – the community and the developer – would be reduced. But … that's not really what this thread is about anyway, thanks for your insight anyway.
  9. Hey folks, Sooo … what are the plans here? Can we get an update on this topic after more than twelve months? I'd be great to add more picture agencies, maybe some creative commons like Unsplash as well. Maybe the community can edit the list itself at some point? <- That would actually be awesome. Or alternatively we could express wishes as to which agencies should be available for selection. Btw. it's a bummer the publicly viewable roadmap has been reduced to a few items - so much so that many open questions or requested/required features are missing from the list. If I understand correctly it was last updated before version 1.6. Regards MrDoodlezz
  10. Hey everyone! Unfortunately I couldn't find a comment about this question. If there is already a topic, please refer to it. What about other suppliers of stock photos? In all applications there is already the palette called "Stock". Among it you can see a drop-list, but it only contains one item/supplier which is Shutterstock. Are there plans to add more picture agencies, maybe some creative commons like Unsplash as well? Or will the community have the possibility to edit the list itself at some point? <- That would actually be awesome. Is it possible to express wishes as to which agencies should be available for selection? Regards MrDoodlezz

    Hmmm, is that so? Well, once in a while I want to be a lawbreaker as well. Then this time I just take the chance and the post simply remains as it is. Cheers MrDoodlezz

    My graphic work and other stuff that I create

    Oh, that's too bad. Okay, rules are rules I guess. I'll adjust the post later when I'm sitting at my desk again (formatting while on the bus is a pain), I just read your response. Anyway, thanks for the information, guys! I may need to study the house rules again. Cheers, hope lunch was okay MrDoodlezz
  13. Hey, guys, I've seen this request in several threads now and I miss the option of auto-activating fonts as well. So … are there any updates here so far? Now that Publisher is in beta this topic is getting more and more important, I think. A general question: what is missing or what has to be done to make font manager programs like FontExplorer, FontBase or Suitcase Fusion compatible with Affinity? Does the application need to be reprogrammed by Affinity? Are the developers of the font manager programs informed about the requirements? Cheers MrDoodlezz

    My graphic work and other stuff that I create

    I'm not sure if this is allowed here, but I'm doing it anyway: some of my designs can be found on Society6, a website where you can customize and sell cushions, canvas prints, mugs, tablets, cell phone covers and much more. For example you can find there my Blōem-series, or the Blood Circulator. Have a look, maybe you'll find the one or the other thing you like, maybe even buy something from my collection, or give them some boost with a simple like. Cheers Dennis/MrDoodlezz
  15. Hey guys, I've got a slightly similar question: I made a selection with any selection tool I want to add or substract just the opaque/transparent pixels of other layers to it. Crtl+Shift+click (on Win) on those specific layers in the layers palette sadly doesn't work the way it does in Photoshop. Are there different shortcuts for this operation? Haven't tried, but it's the same on Mac OS I guess. I know the workarounds, but this is so tedious and inconvenient to do every time. Cheers and thanks MrDoodlezz
