  1. can't reproduce it (1.7.2 mac)
  2. i discovered it can be done automatically.. and works quite well! see
  3. it's more than 3 years that it asked: why when i press ctrl+cmd+I for image resize, the first field of the resize form doesn't get automatically selected? you force me to press TAB to select it (even worse use the mouse) why if i am in Flood Fill Tool, i can't pick a colour by pressing any ctrl/shift/cmd key? i have to manually change to the Colour Picker, pick a color, and then go back to Flood Tool why when i open an image it doesn't open at 100% (but at 105%!??!) why if i select crop, i can't have a modifier to constrain to 1:1 (square).. or if i manually select it.. and come back later to crop i lose the selection? and many many others oddities like these i really don't understand.. there are bare minimum UX that every (at least in the Mac world) app has since 20 years... i would really like to use Affinity apps (i have all 3) but keep going back to Pixelmator that at least has a "normal" UX hope to see some improvements by 2.0
  4. hi i can't see how make Publisher add or remove chapter pages, say for example that i change font size and margins, making the document need more o less pages to fit it well. Is it something that we should care manually? thank you

    Affinity products for Linux

    i'm a pro mac user since 1990. but after the $999 monitor stand and the overpriced macbook pros, i feel i'm going Linux soon. especially now that Unity (the popular game dev engine) has now a Linux version Serif if you are about to be a Linux player... i'd be happy to re-buy all the Affinity apps!
  6. well .. if i wasn't developer and mac user since 30 years, i know that even the most complex machines must be easy to understand, and show the real expected behaviors as default... if i want to resize the image, it's obvious that i want, since i need, to input a width.. you don't show me an empty form where i HAVE to click a second time to input a value. i want to apply a filter.. i don't care, i don't want to know, if the Greyscale filter is destructive or not.. i want that to be applied in 2 seconds. and if it's descritive, you'll show a warning before applying it. or you mark somehow the destructive one to differenciate from the realtime one. it's simply basic UX design. and i think that Affinity has a lot to improve in that (otherwise we'll go back to Pixelmator for simple things, or to Adobe for the complex ones)
  7. damn i spent 30 minutes trying all of them.. it was very hidden eh! THANKS!! (i know that Affinity can do anything.. but too often it's too difficult to know how to do it, and simpler apps are easier
  8. i really can't understand: i do CMd+I / C to resize the image or canvas.. we got the resizing form but the focus isn't on the first field.. i have to manually press tab to select a field, or even worse use the mouse. press C to crop.. ok the mode is set to unconstrained by default, but why there isn't ANY possibility to keep the current proportions? (using cmd,ctrl,shift, alt, for example) i'm mostly in the move tool. but with this tool i always see violet rects around each layer/object.. there isn't a command to turn them off, but i have to change tool.. why do we need this? so annoying! i want to have an image in gray scale/black and white... after spending 3 minutes in the Filters menu.. i discover that that basic feature is in the Adjustment panel.. how did you split the effects in the two so different areas of the app? why Auto Levels is in the Filters menu, but the Levels filter is in the Adjustment panel? i really try to love Affinity apps (i have all), but too often open Pixelmator to do the simplest things because i know that it makes features where i expect them to be! (PS: i am a Mac user since 1991, started with Photoshop 2.0) ciao
  9. my two cents for WebP export, now that Mozilla has decided to support it
  10. Firefox 65 (release on 2019-01-29) will support WebP

    WebP Support

    Firefox 65 (release on 2019-01-29) will support WebP
  12. please, publish a roadmap so we can have 50% less posts asking all the same things
  13. hi. congratulating for the hi level of the current beta and the (obviously) tons of feature requests for anybody coming from InDesign or professional works, wouldn't it be simpler if you publish a final features list roadmap for current 1.0 and for the next 1.1/2.0 ? so we can all decide if we can already start working with it or maybe need to wait another 6 months many thanks!

    Affinity Designer: Pages feature in 1.7?

    separate the contents into different pages inside the same doc. yes Artboard are nice.. but if you have say different area of the app, or separate the UI elements from the wireframes, different options.. one big pages with dozens of artboards isn't the best option. and i can't separate them into different documents since it's the same project with shared symbols!
  15. hi. it's 2 years that i'm waiting for the "pages" feature in Affinity Designer (it's in the roadmap!) since i have to renew my Sketch license.. but I'd like to start my next project with AD if it had pages, any new hints if it is being developed and maybe introduced in 1.7? NOTE: i think that with the Pages feature, AD could be really used for advanced apps/games UI and prototypes thanks!
