  1. +1 for me as well. Also I like the idea of being able to name individual pages if I want. Also the ability to drag and drop ranges of pages between sections in the pages panel.
  2. For sure. I think I am looking at it from the point of view of workflow scripting that interacts with other software and files on my machine and probably remote servers. If you were looking at it from the point of view of coding graphics and page layout using a DOM like system without leaving whichever Affinity product you are in then javascript probably makes sense as most people with javascript experience that you will be getting to write code in your graphics apps will be coming from a DOM scripting background. I have to say that I'm already compromising by choosing Python though, Ruby is m
  3. Python for me. It's used in most other software that has pro scripting now. Others have mentioned graphics software, it's also pretty common in CAD. Also, if you need to do stuff to AppleScript other applications on Mac it's easy to call out to AppleScript from python. Here's a bit of Python code I wrote in my CAD software that takes some regenerated renderings and replaces them in a report using AppleScript: if os.path.exists(reportDoc): log("Looking for report {} to update".format(self.chosenReport)) script = """ set imgs to {{""}} set replaceList to {{{}}} set report
  4. Ability to import export master pages would be great for Architects. We use desktop publishing software to create nice reports for the different project stages. Obviously we could just use a template with master pages for all the different scenarios but this would be quite a big file, and we like to evolve the project report as the project progresses over the course of a couple of years and during this time our templates evolve in parallel so it would be good to be able to import master pages as the project progresses so we can share content and layouts between different reports. Thus it would
  5. OK thanks that's great. I did search the feature request list in a few different ways but didn't find it, is there a another list of projected features somewhere? W
  6. In illustrator you can select something and then select everything else which has the same fill or stroke colour. This feature in illustrator is quite limited compared to CAD software. Affinity does't need anything as complicated as a CAD program but some kind of select by attributes feature would be great and it would be easy to make it better thought out than the one in illustrator. Thanks, W
  7. In illustrator and lots of other software you can choose the point about which you want to rotate or scale something. I don't seem to be able to do this in Affinity. I would really like this feature. Best Will
  8. Hi I'm Will from Scotland I'm an Architect and have used Adobe Illustrator quite a bit over the years for doing architectural illustrations. We can't justify the expense of renting Illustrator/Indesign/Photoshop for occasional use; we are desperate for a serious replacement for Adobe CS and it looks like you might be on to something here. By the way, in architecture school, we do a lot of intensive illustration work. You might consider giving away free copies to students. A lot of practices license Adobe CS because students who figured out how to use it at Uni have persuaded them its r
