  1. Any news on this?I’m a veteran Illustrator user and rely on this behavior too (Constrain Path Dragging on Segment Reshape). I believe it was default Illustrator behavior, but at some point Adobe made it optional in Preferences—I always turn it on. I need this behavior in Affinity Designer, it speeds my creation. Please, Serif, include this vector editing behavior.Thank you
  2. Howdy, Any news on this? I’m a veteran Illustrator user and rely on this behavior too. I believe it was default Illustrator behavior, but at some point Adobe made it optional in Preferences—I always turn it on. I need this behavior in Affinity Designer, it speeds my creation. Please, Serif, include this vector editing behavior. Thank you.
  3. BTW, this was an InDesign feature at least as early as CS2.
  4. I'd like to request a 'Flush Space' be added to Publisher's Insert menu, please. In InDesign, this invisible white space ensures proper spacing of groups of text when using Justified All Lines. Kinda hard to describe so let David Blatner explain here.
  5. A Slug area is necessary in a page layout application. Please add.
  6. I'm chuckling. You guys pinpoint exactly my fear of Blender (or any new software)—rewiring my brain. I got very comfortable with Adobe and resented their forcing me to learn AD. And yeah, there was a slow down and cussing and LOTS of videos. LightWave to Modo wasn't so bad because they're similar, but oh my god did I pull my hair out. And that's the agony I'm afraid of; Blender NOT being like Modo—stupid, I know. I'll try to stick with Blender for a few reasons: it's free, it's additional 3D knowledge under my belt, and learning anything new is always good for my brain.
  7. Thanks for the encouragement. I just hope I can endure the valley of pain, I really HATE that place. I suffered a bit learning Affinity Designer and Photo, and still I reference videos and the help system. I'm just used to doing things Adobe's way (I'm on old CS5). Free time is the thing, but I'll try to stick with the Blender videos—I have Lynda.com. I forget who mentioned it above, but yes I do have a full size keyboard and I don't use Apple's silly mouse, I have a corded Logitech M500. I also have an old Wacom Intuos3, which apparently isn't supported in Sierra, so I'm still on El Capitan. You're so right, 3D is tough to learn. First was Ray Dream Studio (don't laugh), then LightWave, then Modo. I'm kinda assuming Blender will be not-as-tough because of my 3D experience. Maybe I'm delusional. Here's hoping.
  8. OK, info overload, but I appreciate it guys. I transferred my TextEdit notes over to Notes (Apple's note taking app) because it can include pics (i.e., Kevin's screenshots). Thanks for the advice about Left select vs. Right select. I caught that option in one of the videos—I confess I changed it immediately from the default of Left, but you guys say Nein! I hear and obey.
  9. Now that sounds useful, thanks a million. It's in my TextEdit file.
  10. I'm keeping a TextEdit file of suggestions. Thanks Ren.
  11. Thank you Renzatic, Frustratingly, the middle mouse wheel click kept zooming out of our Milky Way, your suggestion helped. Now I gotta get used to holding the Option Key just to rotate about my scene. Grrrr.
  12. Hi PixelBrush, There's a blue "Download Attachment" button along the right edge of the website. See picture:
  13. Hey Kevin, I'm only 9 videos in, but I also watched Jonathan Williamson's 6 introductory movies over at CGCookie, and I'm already finding a problem with navigation. Maybe it's my mouse or the middle click wheel. I'm on Mac as I know you are, may I Private Message you concerning Blender and input devices? I don't wanna hijack this forum with my Blender queries, and since you're the one to yell at, well... :o
  14. These are really nice—I like the paper cutout appeal, color palette and the background texture.
  15. Ok, who do I blame? I downloaded and installed Blender, imported the User Manual to GoodReader on iPad, and started watching Blender Essential Training by George Maestri on Lynda.com. Problem is I don't really have time to learn a new 3D package, but I usually sink pretty deep when I tackle something new. I gotta yell at somebody. :angry:
  16. I watched Secret to Photorealism and Too Busy to Learn Blender? Both great. The 2nd is applicable to ANYONE who ever tried learning something new or getting something done; retraining ourselves to better handle unpleasant tasks.
  17. Well whadda you know, a comic! And there's my masterpiece. :rolleyes: Glad we could help.
  18. You guys are hogging up my free time with your educational YouTube links, stop it! :D
  19. Thanks for the tutorial, Kevin, learned a lot. Someone above did it in one day? Took me four! I pretty much followed it out the window, but with the leaves I used Elliptical instead of Linear option for Transparency. It gave the leaves a more organic appearance, plus I blurred each half 2px and tinkered with their centers. And I changed the nose, and color of his shades.
  20. Sup Kevin, I know LightWave & Modo, but for some reason Blender seems daunting. I'd love to give it a shot, I just have too much on my plate right now. Can't wait for official release of AP 1.6—dying to give the Light UI a try. The grain in the texture maps (in the render preview) isn't in the UVs. I'm guessing that's a low shading rate or something to do with Indirect Illumination?
  21. Hi It123, To include an image with your post, use "More Reply Options" on the bottom right of the text input frame, then be sure to click "Attach This File" after you select the image you want to include.
  22. Now that's comedy, Alfred. Thanks for the laugh. :D
