  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Me too. I can't believe that Publisher is finally around the corner.
  4. I have a random .EXR file created in Houdini that should have transparent background. When imported in PS it loads as it should. But in AP I get 4 different layers, one RGB, one alpha layer, third is opacity and fourth layer is something that looks like reflection. Anyway, neither of them has transparent background like in photoshop. I will include the .EXR file for your reference. Is there something I missed? untitled1.exr
  5. Hello all. There is this general situation with all Affinity software, not just with Publisher, where tightly placed or snapped together shapes still leave a tiny gap that is visible in the finished graphic. That is really not good because I have to overlap shapes to get rid of it. Can something be done about this? Thanks.
  6. Hello all. I would like to request a feature that would enable use of boolean operations between pixel layers, pixel and curve layers together. Right now, only curves and shapes such as rectangles can use boolean operations. Just like for vector booleans, pixel booleans would ignore rgb information and use only pixel location. On the other hand, Adjustement layers can only be merged with pixel layers and not with curves and shapes. I would like to request a feature that would allow users to merge adjustement layers with vector based layers. That would be useful simply because active adjustement layers prevent users from properly assigning colors from the color wheel. Thank you. Looking forward towards using Affinity 1.7
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Thank you. It's so simple, and yet so frustrating if you don't know.
  10. 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.
  12. 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)
  13. 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.
  14. Yes I meant Add. It's a process that never ends no matter how simple the shape is.
  15. Here's one old topic about the matter from AD 1.5:
