    graphos got a reaction from PaulAffinity in Framing   
    Hello. There is one very unpleasant moment.

    For instance.

    I need to crop the image, and transfer it to another “paper” format. Naturally, I selected the photo and cropped it.


     
    But when transferring to another document, it turns out that it is not cropped at all !!! I once wrote to you that the program does not crop, but simply disguises the photo!
     

     
    You ignored my message! And here you have the result !!! And this is very bad!!! I have no doubt that you will ignore this "cry" of despair ...

    Yours faithfully!

    graphos got a reaction from Cuando in Workspace   
    Hello. I want to make a proposal to improve the workspace.
    Two panels on the sides ruthlessly select the workspace of the document, on the margins of which there may be a mass of some layout elements. And constantly moving the document to find the desired item is not very convenient.

    Of course, you can close the Resources panel, which is very necessary for work. But each time it is extremely inconvenient to open it through a double menu! It’s scary to think about it ... This panel is needed almost all the time, but it takes up a lot of space, especially for small monitors.

    But this issue would be resolved by placing a narrow panel, tied to the right edge (as in InDesign), and whose windows would close automatically after clicking on the field ...



    By no means do I urge you to copy Indesign, but this function is very convenient to use !!! Perhaps you implement it in some way, I don’t know. But the fact that this will make it easier for everyone to work in your amazing program is for sure!
    Thank!

    Hello.
    A huge request is to make it possible to independently add commands and tools to the context menu of programs. One click, and everything you need for a specific operation is at hand. This is very convenient, and there is no need to open a drop-down menu.

    This feature is present in CorelDraw.
    Thank.

    I feel your pain, same problem here.
    This and all the other helpful solutions regarding fill and stroke slow things down when all I want is a frame to be inserted into the text flow. As it is now only by giving the frames names and viewing the Assets as a list will give us a useable Assets Panel, but sometimes we need a more descriptive name and the names get truncated or ignored if they are too long.

    Or to use its outline if it does not have a fill nor a stroke. Even though outline view is not available in APub the outline must be part of the object.

    This is not the first instance I've seen with an invisible thumbnail due to the nature of the asset.
    Perhaps it would be a good idea to have the ability to assign a custom thumbnail to an asset (a second drawing that is used only for the thumbnail) to better account for these cases?

    You should find that it was added to the Assets panel, but it will probably not be visible unless at least one of these is true:
    You give it a Fill (use the Text Frame studio panel to do that); or You give it a Stroke (again, use the Text Frame studio panel), and the color is one that contrasts with your UI (User Interface) color; or You display the Assets in List view, so the asset names are visible.

    graphos got a reaction from Friksel in Affinity Designer. Cropping   
    Hello. There is one more unpleasant moment in your wonderful program.
    For example. I need to crop the image, and this is done very easily and conveniently ...


    But after saving the image, the “trimmed” areas are also saved! It is necessary to frame in extraneous programs ...


    Cropping does not crop the image, but masks it, and this is not very good ...
    Maybe it makes sense that the frame of the crop just cut the picture, and not mask?
    Thank.

    Hello. The program has one unpleasant moment.
    When you select an object and just apply / delete / to an unnecessary fragment, the faces turn out to be smooth and beautiful,


     
     
    but if you apply / refine the edges of / to the same object, the faces turn out to be uneven and blurred ... This is especially noticeable when you separate a person from the background . I really hope that you will correct this trouble.

    graphos got a reaction from Hofnaar in I can not figure out how to set up and save the crop size.   
    Hello. I've been trying to adjust and save the crop frame for many days. This is a very important function of the program, but, in my opinion, it is not quite worked out ... Or am I doing something wrong?
     

     
    Let's say I need to crop images just like that, and insert them in InDesign.
     

     
    In the program, I set the size in millimeters, but it is in millimeters, when scaling the specified proportions DO NOT SAVE.
     
     

     
    Then I added a preset to keep the size for later framing ... and what is it? Immediately jumped out some strange size ...
     
     

     
    Okay. I activated the "Adjustable proportions" function, but it's not in millimeters ... Although, while scaling the proportions here are already preserved.
     
     

     
    Next, I applied the cropping, but got a completely different size!
     
     
     

     
    После сохранения, я получил ещё один размер…
     
     
     

     
    And after I put the file in the InDesign, I got another size !!!
     
     
    But is it possible to make the original size equal to the size at the output? And it would be very good if, when setting the size in millimeters, the cropping frame was scaled proportionally?
    Just a little more, and your program will be almost perfect. Required!
    If I do something wrong, then you correct me. Thank you.

    graphos got a reaction from wps in Saving files   
    Hello. There is one unpleasant moment. If you put a file in the program by dragging it, it does not remember the directory from which this file was taken. And when saving a file, you need to prescribe the path. If the file was "far", then writing back the way is not quite a hunt, especially if there are many such files. Maybe it's possible to fix it like in Photoshop? Thank you.
