  1. Eh, not so much. I just tried it and it rasterized a good chunk of my file. The main issue was anything with effects applied to it. For instance, in Designer I had a bunch of objects grouped together and applied an outline effect to the group. Saved it as a PDF, then opened the PDF in Illustrator. The group was rasterized. Went back into Designer, removed the outline effect, and tried it again. This time the objects remained as vectors. So... in short, yes and no. You can do it but if you want to preserve all your vector paths you first have to remove all effects from objects. An incredible pain, I know, but it can save you from having to start completely over.

    Artboards Pannel?

    The closest thing I've found to this is going into the Export Persona (top left), and that will get you the Slices panel. In the Slices panel, the top item represents your whole document, and the ones below with the pink box icons are your artboards.
  3. Macros are your friend! They can be huge time savers.

    Deleting Objects inside Symbols

    No response yet, 3 years later? This is unfortunate; symbol editing needs a LOT of work in Affinity designer; symbols are almost useless. I'm still having this problem with version 1.7.3. There also needs to be a function to replace all selected instances of a symbol with another symbol.
  5. I've been trying to create an intensity brush from a png, and have gotten it to almost work the way it should. The problem is that the image texture is squished along the stroke, disproportionate to the image. I realize that the image will stretch and compress a little bit as you change the stroke length, but I'm getting two different results when I use the same image with the same settings. The image brush gives me correct proportions, but the intensity brush doesn't. As you can see, using an identical stroke, the image brush repeats 3 times while the intensity brush repeats 4 times. They're both 64 pt and have the exact same settings in their brush properties. What am I doing wrong? I've attached screencaps of my settings, of the stroke samples, and the texture image itself.
  6. Yeah, I could really use a text-searchable pdf that just lists them all. Like, is there even a shortcut to cycle pen modes? I want to customize them as little as possible, because I use a Razer gamepad for all my hotkeys and I can just program those buttons to match the program I'm using.

    Feature request — oct 2017

    I completely agree with all of these feature requests. Free transform and mesh transformation of vector objects would be crazy powerful. And let me also add that I think you all have done an excellent job building this program from the ground up. I still love Designer!
  8. I second this request! Offset Path would be super useful.

    Roughen Curves

    Oh, yes please. I miss stackable roughen effects. So useful.

    Visibility of Symbols is linked to all instances

    I second that. Any word on this issue?

    Visibility of Symbols is linked to all instances

    Glad to know this is a bug and not a feature, because that's a huge pain.
  12. I'll go ahead and add +1 to this. Been using Affinity for a few months now and just now ran into this issue. Would be a great help!
  13. I'd like to add my voice to this request. Would be immensely helpful, especially with a large, complex scene.
