  1. Bump, editable text on export should be a priority to help studios migrate. I'm still forced to use Photoshop in many situations because I have to pass open files to team members who prefer Photoshop because the text is rasterised and they would no longer be able to contribute to the project otherwise. This is an issue with the desktop versions as well.
  2. I did this with logos before, it works as a temporary fix. But this feature does not work at all with embedded jpg, png or other 'export' files.
  3. +1 For this feature. I am really missing this
  4. A quick search and I couldn't find anything. There should be a way to easily export a selected embedded document. This is especially important when you have to share open files with colleagues who need to use assets in other software or suites. Many web developers I work with require the original images I use in my layouts - so the can set up their websites to automatically crop and treat images in the same manner.

    Layer panel colors

    No need to go to extremes. I'm not suggesting taking away all customizability, the motivation is to keep the UX less distracting. This is just from a professional use-case standpoint where we want to spend less time on tweaking interface elements. Maybe making it a default is a good compromise, and allowing people to change this in the application menu for thier particular setup. So it doesn't interfere with other users setups when sharing documents. Example: "Set color 1" can be a pastel on my interface "Set color 1" can be neon on someone else's

    Layer panel colors

    I just think they should be more subtle like the Adobe palette. I also think it shouldn't sit over the ✓ box only. It should span the entire name. If this is an issue then perhaps do what Pixelmator Pro did? (attached) I'll disagree on this point. because consistency in user experience is vital for any application - especially one targeted at designers and illustrators. A carefully well-designed palette would be the best thing. Maybe just double the amount of available colors instead.
  7. The current colors are really ugly, and intrusive. The Bright colors are distracting from the main artwork... I recommend soft pastels instead of the current options (something that doesn't contrast too heavily from the UI interface too)
  8. It would give AD the upper hand because the technology would be built into the software, where right now Adobe only supports it as a plugin. It would bring features to the table like better boolean operations, cleaner curves, collision detection, curve fitting, scattering operations, Curve extension based on trajectory, etc. If it is part of the core software, it makes it a better core package. I actually agree with your completely, if I could just use the same plugins that would also be great! Serif could also develop the tools as part of AD expansion, and just create a subscription for those of us that need it. I doubt astute will want to support plugins for multiple suites. And the developers at Serif will know who best to fit it in without compromising their suite. I've also wondered why Adobe hasn't gone this route. I feel like Adobe doesn't really focus on their products with special care and attention they used to. The latest copies of Photoshop and Illustrator are very slow and unstable, and instead of fixing these issues they just keep on adding more features that contribute to compromised performance and unreliability. I've been wondering if Photoshop for iPad is going to also accompany an unveiling of a rewritten Photoshop for desktop... in which case maybe they're just being secretive until their project is further along.
  9. +1 more vote on integrating the Astute Graphics Technology in Affinity designer. I own the entire AG suite, and it’s the only reason I still open illustrator. This would give AD the upper hand over illustrator in every way.
  10. +1 on this! I own the full astute suite, and it's honestly the ONLY reason I still have illustrator set up on my machine.
  11. The same thing happens during exports in the export-persona. Hitting ⌘+S and trying to run exports cause Affinity Designer to stop responding. It's happened to me several times.

    Beach ball of death after adding a font

    This issue has surfaced with me a couple of times. I currently use an external display with the settings set to default for display. Switching to scaled, and adjusting for the middle 'default' setting doesn't resolve my issue. and even slows down my systems 2D interface animations dramatically. The problem doesn't seem to always be an issue - but once it starts happening in any of my documents "that's it" - "this is my life now' XD - please help.
  13. I would like to draw some attentions to the camera raw abilities PS has. Which I have grown accustomed to using, where you can develop with added grain which is very different from noise. Instead of simply adjusting luminosity of single pixels spaces underneath, it seems to find averages based on the values. So larger grain creates this beautiful effect that destroys details, but without making the image look ugly. creating soft edges without seemingly "losing focus". It's one of my favourite features to use when creating artwork and binding together different layers with different pixel densities. It's also an important feature when emulating a lot of vintage photo effects. giving you that VSCO look.
  14. Hi there Some of the files I send to print require more bleed on the bottom. The export document has all this extra unnecessary white space, which did not appear in the previous version of affinity designers exports. I've attached samples, hopefully they help resolve the issue. bleed-test.afdesign bleed-test.pdf
  15. @MEB Thanks for the response. I may have brushed over this too quickly. I tried what you are referring to you before adding my post, and it didn't originally apply to everything. For example fonts would continue to maintain aspect ratio, and shapes like a simple rectangle didn't when grabbing the corner - and resizing it. despite having selected 'preserve aspect ratio" as the default. Just to make sure I wasn't being silly, I tried again, and it seems to work =D Didn't think to restart the app, which may have made a difference.
