  1. Hi, can you pls fix the Text Frame studio so that when docked it does not resize the whole group. In the example below, I'm able to expand the other panels as needed and I can scroll up and down without resizing the group.
  2. When working with gradients you may wish to save one of the colors as a swatch but there are quite a few steps to do to make this happen, and doing so will affect the current gradient scheme ie. its object. I explain further below. My suggestion is to add the Swatch Add button to the Node of the gradient, which saves you all the steps explained further below. Now I will explain how taking the extra steps to add this color to a palette changes the current gradient scheme. 1. To best explain, I begin with showing the previous color in the gradient scheme so you can see the full workflow. 2. I will now alter the color. You will see that the color picker in the HSL popup is the previous color. To make the color picker the new color, I can either drag the color picker to the Node in the gradient scheme, OR I close and reopen the HSL popup (which is faster). 3. After closing and reopening the HSL popup, the color picker is now my desired color to save to a palette. Now that the color picker has been changed.... 4. The swatches panel shows the color picker has the new color, but the current gradient scheme will be changed as soon as I click the color picker. 5. I click the color picker, and the gradient has changed which allows me to proceed to saving the swatch, but the current object color is also changed. This workflow greatly reduces the ability to both experiment with colors in a gradient by impeding my ability to develop a set of preferred color in swatches palette. • It forces me to save a gradient prior to saving a node color. • It forces me to think whether I should finalize my gradient scheme so I'm not creating unwanted swatches in my color palette. • It abruptly changes the color of my object in the process of saving a desired color in the gradient scheme. • It stifles creative development as I may encounter other experimentation phases with other objects and not seek to go through all the steps to save a color node as a swatch. thank you
  3. Have to interject in this lovely topic 🧐but.... Vector ANimAtioN -- is what serif should deliver next ! 👏
  4. Serif's icon choices are fun and engaging. Let's be careful what we ask for..... .....
  5. Wow I'm sorry I just figured it out. The Layer in the master was set to passthrough at 58%. Sorry sorry to waste your time ! ;- /
  6. Please help me understand why my text layers which may contain multiple styles are semi-transparent ? There is no issue with color opacity settings or layer transparency, but I'm not sure why its happening. Moreover when exporting to PDF the effect is printed so I'm confused....
  7. Problem Even the most organized designers may find themselves needing to redefine a number of elements as symbols. After all, there are deadlines, the all too easy to use Copy / Paste / Duplicate options and other scenarios that keep us from relying on symbols. But what is worst is that to go back and reorganize these elements as symbols can also be daunting, because of large number of nested layers and each with their own unique locations. Solution Introduce a function that takes any element and replaces it with a symbol in its place. The function intelligently uses the same X-Y coordinates of the object its replacing to position itself automatically. Result With a Symbol Replace option, a user can Create their Symbol, and then go anywhere in the document and replace those items that should be that symbol. • No need to drag the symbol into the canvas. • No need to position that symbol into the correct location manually. • No need to nest that symbol in the layers studio. Thank you and pls consider !
  8. Yes, but those preference options don't affect the margin settings in the Guides Manager.
  9. For my margins, I have to continue using the standard Horizontal / Vertical guides settings because the options for Margins round up. If its by design I hope they reconsider, the 1/4 inch measurement is essential, even 1/8 is important (ergo .125), but at the very least the 1/4 setting pls.
  10. ...A flowchart (Visio) application. It's a natural option because there are only a few dynamic elements that separate a flowchart tool from most drawing tools: Flowchart tools use points or mid-points on Shape vectors to create {Connections} no different than a snapping agent with another object. Dynamic Arrow shapes, for curved or straight angles with customizable end tip styles. Page organization, page notes, and hidden pages Optional features are not deal breaker: Some flowchart tools allow you to continue adding assets while clicking the previous asset. Some arrow shapes may track connected shapes or follow next shape automatically if a shape deleted One can wish....
  11. Hi @Chris_K Maybe you're working on new version of Designer? No doc and I'm able to change bg grey level. designer no bg.mp4
  12. +Update After starting a document, the issue corrected itself. I can confirm that in Designer, you do not need to start a document to change the UI Background level.
  13. The level is not dynamically changing until you switch away to a different UI style and come back. The Default OS option doesn't do anything at all even if you switch between the other options. No dynamic change either to the background. pref ui.mp4
