  1. ah its the guides i can't get to snap to intersections! i can get my curser to, and therefor an object to, but the guides only want to snap to pretty random things that don't seem to have much of a pattern.
  2. hmmm actually just got it to work, so back to the inconsistenty i keep seeing. ill look into it more again tomorrow with fresh eyes, gn
  3. An awful lot and really mix results. Can you show me what your snapping settings are when you did this, because i set up the very same thing and it did not work like that with any setting i could test. In general i feel quite proficient in AD as i did in .ai and freehand before that, but this is one of the small list of things that is making me pull out hair.
  4. So it's 2019, any word on snapping to intersections?
  5. I spent 4 days doing by hand what should have been a 3 minute operation. Now they want it 0.1mm smaller stroke, this would be nothing at all if the program worked the way it should. In its current state, this is the stuff of nightmares. don't even get me started with the translated version they suggested! off to go look for another program to do this step on, how stupid.
  6. I would like to suggest in the future that prioritizing new programs and projects over critical functionality of existing products is a very poor choice. It makes it seem that the company wants new customers and more money over loyal satisfied professional. I don't think that Serif feels that way at all, so please don't act that way in the future. I know you folks have taken a sad beating in this thread over the years, it's very flustering I'm sure on that end of things too. Please understand that for many of us, this function is so at the core of our work flow that it was (and is) hard to understand how anything else was ever getting worked on while it was still broken. Please assign the correct folks to this right away if it has not already happened. Let us know that it is not on "the list" but actually on the "workbench". Please focus on being the responsive agile company that drew us all in in the first place.
  7. How did things go with this? I see the company is promoting the exact fonts i was talking about on the site (which is awesome, he is amazing) , so i assume the issue has been sorted out?
  8. Nice to know i wanted just crazy, looking forward to hearing what comes of it. Let me know if you need any info from the font designer. Rivka
  9. uploaded, looking forward to sorting out what is up, the font designer is super curious as well
  10. I have had this issue thru all builds of the Beta, I am currently updated to I'm running MacOSX 10.14.3 but have had it on the last two OS versions as well and on a second computer (also Mac) I have spoken to the Font Creator (a well regarded pro) and he sees no reason why this should be happening. He has agreed to let me share his paid font with the Beta team for testing. As you can see in the screen shots, his font have numerous alternates that work perfectly in Designer 1.6.1 However the same text (copy pasted or retyped) does not have this same choices in If someone would like to contact me with an email address i can send the font for you to reproduce the issue.
  11. the font is a paid font that i use extensively and is the font selected on both examples i posted, it has a large library of alternates as shown in the 1.6.1 window. Since it is a paid font i likely can not share it with you, but here is a link to it if you are wanting to check it out. https://creativemarket.com/TobiasSaul/1810175-ROYAL-SIGNAGE-ORNAMENTS the example i posted was from two documents each created in their own version, but i have now tested it creating it in 1.6.1 and opening it in with the same outcome, as did another one of this persons fonts. However i did test it with a unrelated font that had some minor ligatures and it seem to be mostly the same. So the question begs to be asked, what is different between font designers, that some of them don't work in 1.7 and other do? I'm going to send a note to the font designer as well, he is highly regarded and his fonts are top notch, he will want to look into this.
  12. Enjoying the beta for the most part. Question, Topography panel is a lot more limited, are you going to put that function back in soon? this is when using the same font in the same situation, the one on the left is the Beta, the one on the right is 1.6.1 Thanks

    Has these operations gotten any more straight forward in the past year? I'm working on a bunch of Signage and this warping comes up all the time. I currently use Baseline and Vertical Scale tools in the Character pallet
