  1. Thank you for replying. That's kind of sad... Also, I posted this topic in the wrong forum. It should have been discussion forum, not bug report.
  2. Hello good people. Evaluation of APublisher would be on a completely new level if those two personas become avilable. I'm curious where is the holdup? Please don't tell me they will become available when the Publisher releases.
  3. Thank you. It's so simple, and yet so frustrating if you don't know.
  4. Hello there, thank you for you reply. Could you do all that without selecting layers in the list? Issue is that I need to do it in the artwork, not like that. Why? Because I have many groups and 100~200 layers and can't click select that way. I wasnt to marquee drag and select multiple layers that are located in different groups. Even If I could click on each item on the layer menu, I wouldn't know which one to click, so I have to seelct it from the artwork window. But anyway, I figured it out partially. I have to click and hold ctrl and then marquee drag select. Unfortunatelly selecting many layers this way is also selecting other layers left and right.

    [AD] Isolation Mode

    I would definitely like to see a proper isolation feature in Affinity that allows work not jus preview. It is obvious for working on complex projects.
  6. Hello all. Like I said in the title, I want to move elements/layers that are located in the same place in the artwork but are part of the groups with other elements located in other places in the artwork. Things get complicated here because I simply cannot find a way to move specific layers without moving entire groups. In Illustrator you do this simply by using direct selection tool (node tool in Affinity), select anything you want and move where ever you want regardless of which group those layers belong to. How do I move things in Affinity apps that belong to different groups??? I know that I can double-click and move each element within a group, but there are many elements below that one I also want to move at the same time, but they belong to different groups. How do I move them all together without moving entire groups? (and without ungrouping elements)
  7. Hello all. Right now AD allows adjustement filters to be used which is awesome since that way we can quickly change the colors of our artwork. But the problem is after having such layer on top of the artwork because color information is different and further adjustements are difficult because of it. It would be good if the adjuctement layr could be somehow merges with underlying layers. RIght now the only thing I can do is rasterize layers but that is obviously not what i want.
  8. Yes I meant Add. It's a process that never ends no matter how simple the shape is.
  9. Here's one old topic about the matter from AD 1.5:
  10. Yes, this is still a thing. I'm glad I'm not the only who has this problem because I often feel like I'm the only one ever who experiences technical problems of this nature.
  11. This is widely known problem, existing since forever. There is one recent topic on the same subject (in the Publisher forums if I remeber correctly) where a guy posted a picture of several circles that were divided which resulted in more that 1000 created curves. And that's not the end. If you try to to Unite these curves back together in a single curve/shape, program gets stuck in the never ending process and needs to be restarted.
  12. In time, Affinity software will certainly get it's fair share of the market. However, I'm also fairly certain that big companies will stick with Adobe simply due to their pipeline workflow that includes different areas. A single subscription of $49 for the entire Adobe package (that seems to be expanding) is the only choice, since great many job requimenets include adequate understanding and experience with Adobe software. Affinity is only a small part of that. It's the same thing with 3D software. Industry sticks with Autodesk for production, while there are many newer, modern, rising stars out there that surpass it on the functionality, simplicity and price levels.
  13. Yes Sean, I completely overlooked the node shortcuts. My bad. I presumed that pen tool shortcuts would perform the same as node. Thank you for pointing that out.
  14. I asigned shortcuts for curve break and curve join for both Affinity DEsigner and Publisher, but the shortcut key doesn't do anything.
  15. Hello. It is really mind boggling to me why frame tool doesn't allow non-fit scaling in the custom position that is not maximum nor minimum fit? The proportion option "maximum" and "minimum" fit almost never match my needs because the position is either centered or (if use anchor points) position is fixed to one of the sides. The "no scale" option in the frame properties should be no-fit scale, because why wouldn't I want to scale my picture? Also, Picture Frame tool and Vector Crop tool are conflicting one another. Vector crop is good for Affinity Designer but Publisher is supposed to centered around Picture Frame tool, no? Long story short, the point of this thread is: I need a tool that will allow me to crop the image the way I want and allow me to scale image with frame. Currently Image Frame tool can only do fit scaling and that is not useful to me. RIght now, if I want to scale the image, I have to do it seperately and then scale the frame seperately to get what I want. InDesign frame tool is perfect, it allows me to scale anyway I want, plus the fit to frame and fit to image.
