  1. As stokerg documented in his first response to my first post in this thread, Designer users have been asking for this at least since November 24, 2014! Going on 5 years! Sitting back and waiting has not worked! The squeaky wheel gets the grease! Why? Because the rider doesn't know there is a problem, or can ignore and forget the problem, unless the wheel tells them. Change doesn't happen by sitting back and wishing it. We need more squeaking not less. People In these threads have said they are not using Designer because it doesn't have search and replace text. That's ridiculous since the Affinity development team already has the code in Publisher and they boast about the shared code base between the Affinity family of products! As stokerg said almost 4 months ago: Just using Publisher is not a solution for putting this most basic of functionality in Designer that should have been there in the first place.
  2. I think it's important to document when the question was asked, when they committed to providing an update and how many times we have to repeatedly ask for the update. This is critically important to us and others. If I don't keep it on the front burner, who will?
  3. Hi Walt, Some of our documents have over 50 Artboards so I imagine there might be technical issues. Having to jump to Publisher for such a basic functionality is a weak technical solution for such basic functionality. Serif should update us as they promised in October. I am also concerned about using beta software on our production files.
  4. Hi Walt, stokerg, who works for Serif, replied to my post in October and said he would "update back here." So Serif did reply here and committed to updating us in this forum. As I stated in my original October post, since the feature was already in Publisher, and they boast about the Affinity shared code base, it shouldn't be a big deal to port the functionality from Publisher to Designer. I, like many others, have invested significant resources into my Designer work so telling us to just use Publisher is problematic from a technical perspective and if it's technically feasible, from a requisite resource investment perspective for us to port all of our works. There is a reason they have two different products and why we chose to work with Designer. As we have been saying for months: "this is basic functionality" even included in free software such as inkscape.
  5. Hi stokerg,  can you provide an update on this basic but critically needed functionality?

  10. I also posted this on 10/12: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/70140-find-replace-tool-for-affinity-designer/
  11. Hi stokerg, Thank you for linking to another of what I am guessing are many posts strewn throughout this forum asking for this basic functionality going back to at least November 24, 2014. As pointed out in your linked post, Illustrator, another vector/raster hybrid desktop application, has this basic text Find and Replace functionality. Even the free and open source inkscape, another vector/raster hybrid desktop application, has this basic text Find and Replace functionality, although to be accurate, inkscape's Find and Replace functionality is pretty advanced and elegant. PagePlus, which I used for many, many years is a vector/raster hybrid desktop application and it has basic text Find and Replace functionality. Publisher is a vector/raster hybrid desktop application and according to your reply it has text Find and Replace functionality. I'm seem to recall that one of Affinity's biggest selling points going back many years has been how integrated Photo, Designer and Publisher are with a shared and consistent code base. Since you already have the expertise and code from PagePlus and Publisher why can't you incorporate it into Designer? Your user base has been asking for this basic functionality for many years. We love Designer and we desperately need this basic functionality.
  12. Having a basic text Find and Replace functionality in Designer is critical for us. We waste a huge amount of time having to manually search through lots of text and we can't be certain to find all the instances without a basic search tool. Is there a reason this basic functionality is missing from Designer? Is there a plan to add it to Designer in the near future?
