  1. Hello. I would like a feature that allows creating of keyframes that are in fact just layers for the purpose of creating animated gifs.
  2. Hello, I have been playing with a software called Marmoset Hexels, and it has a feature that allows users to paint by filling grid in any mode selected - hexagonal, triangular, cubic...and even random grids can be created. So I was thinking how cool it would be to make pixel tool to change it's profile according to the isometric plane that is currently selected. Just a thought.
  3. @PixelPest Thank you, that is exactly what I was looking for, cheers!
  4. Hello, is it possible to paint whole cubes of guides like pixel painting but in isometric view? Can pixel tool be shifted, change shape? And another question for AD, once I fit object to plane in isometric view, how do I unfit it back? Thank you
  5. I'm having two files. One is regular image and other is a black/white version of it. I want to use the white area as visible and black as invisible. Is there a was to do this? I attached files for your reference. Regular mask is doing it, white brush reveals the masked image and black hides it. But I don't know how use my image as a mask.
  6. Like Mr. Walt said, you could simply do it in Publisher. But now this begs the question, what's the point of having 3 apps if they could simple merge them in one? I mean they have been essentialy merged into one with Publisher. Is there a reason for us to open other apps beside Publisher?
  7. I can't see any ptoblem with editing Photo file within Publisher. When double clicked, Photo file opens in a new window with all layers 100% preserved and editable like you can see in the attached file. But you wrongly assumed that Photo persona will open your Photo file. It can't because it doesn't do that. Personas simply allow you to have access to Designer and Photo workflow while working in Publisher. When you place/import your Photo file into Publisher, currently opened file is still Publisher file, not Photo file. The only way to edit placed file, is to double click on it like instructed by Serif.
  8. Hello. Right now, awesome live filters available in Photo are not fully compatible with layereffects. I demonstrated in the attached file with 'perspective live filter' active on bevel/emboss layer effect. Moreover, perspective live filter won't work correctly with grouped layers.

    Hey Affinity,

    That is definitely some sort of "blend" tool that is not yet available in Designer I'm afraid.
  10. Hello. If we are going to build a library of assets for convenient use, it would be great if the icon size could be increased/decreased for better viewing, just like for example Glyph Browser window that allows such feature -- smallest size, small size, normal size, large size, largest size. This is especially helpful with detailed assets, or those that are different but look similar. Thank you.
  11. Hello all. We have seen amazing, tremendeous designs done in Designer and Photo so far that shows that both of those are extraordinary, professional grade applications. My suggestion is about conveninece of use rather than a new feature. When I click on the start/end point of already existing curve with a pen tool, I can continue drawing the curve without the need to previously select the start/end node with a node tool. I understand that not everyone may need this, but al least making it an option through an icon to turn it on/off. Another suggestion is closing the curve when clicking on start/end point of already existing curve (by using pen tool). Right now this can be only achieved by using the join tool in the menu. I think this method is redundant and pen tool should be able to close already existing curves. Thank you.

    Crashes in latest beta

    @DarkClown I think that Publisher has been in Beta for too long, about 6 month overdue according to their initial plan which was to release it by the end of 2018. I think at this point they have to release it as is because there are no aditional features planned for this release, and bugs will be sorted gradually just like with Photo and Designer. As you can see, there is alreaady 1.7.1 version of both Designer and Photo that delivers fixes for various things. You can be sure that everything is being worked out on constantly.
  13. Hello all. Big congratulations to Serif for creatingand releasing 1.7 version! I'm now looking to get into ADesigner. Since I primarilly used Illustrator for drawing and creating shapes, I immediatelly noticed big differences in how pen tool behaves. Things I have trouble with: 1. I can't simply select two curves and use pen tool to connect them? Curves remain seperated. 2. How can I delete a shape segment line? Since clicking on a curve creates a node, selecting a path/curve segment is not possible, the only way to delete a segment is to select two nodes that are forming it and then press 'break curve' in order to detach it from the rest of the curve. This is way too complicated on the long run. In Illustrator you simply select the segment you want and press delete. 3. Joining two different curves at the end points of my choice? If I do this, AD simply connects two nodes that I don't want to be connected. I tried reversing the path/curve direction, but AD keeps joining the same two nodes that I don't want to be connected. 4. Pencil tool doesn't close the shape. Right now, I have to use 'sculpt mode' and redraw that segment in order to close the curve. Serif said in the release notes that this needs some more work if I'm not mistaken. If you could give me some input about the issues, I would be grateful. Thanks for reading.
  14. I'm not sure what are you talking about, man. Everything is exactly the same as it was. If you want to alter the curve while pen tool is active in the process of making a shape, hold Alt and then manipulate curve. If your shape is closed, then use a node tool, and then manipulate nodes the way you want your curves to be. This part is 100% the same as in Illustrator.
  15. Me too. I can't believe that Publisher is finally around the corner.
