    freehand selection tool unusable

    My feelings exactly about Adobe. I've used their products for about 30 years and I now feel about them the same way I used to think about Quark. I think Affinity have done a good job considering that the software is in its infancy and some things it does well (even better than Adobe) and others are just plain awkward. But to use it professionally it needs to be stable, reliable and polished. Hopefully new versions will smooth out the rough edges and it can become a true competitor to Adobe. God knows, we need something else.

    freehand selection tool unusable

    Seems a reset as suggested fixes this issue. I'm having the same issue. I cannot get rid of the hand (move) tool to use the freehand selection(lasso) tool. The lasso tool shows it is selected but on the canvas I only get the hand tool. All of the other selection marque tools are fine. iMac Retina 5K 27" 2015 3.3GHz Intel 16 GB + Wacom tablet

  4. Same problem for me. I'm making myself use Affinity photo to convert from photoshop (how did Adobe become so evil?) But there are lots of little quirks and kinks that slow down the workflow. It still feels a bit rough around the edges. I gave up trying to delete a selection and ended up just filling it.

    Line styles

    Hang on. I've just purchased the retail version of AD, but it is the beta version has line styles. Why would you do that? Another question? How do you remove nodes from a path (i.e..anchor points).

    Font Use

    I have purchased Affinity Designer. And as a newborn piece of software it shows promise. But… I am unable to see any fonts that are available to all other applications!! (Creative Suite, Word, Text Wrangler, Pages (even MYOB!). I use Suitcase for my font management not the generic apple font management which is just not robust enough for professional use. Do you have any suggestions on how to get fonts to load into AF? Cheers Peter

    Font Use

    Mu apologies about the question regarding Suitcase and Affinity. I forgot to restart after the install. All good now.

    Font Use

    Just downloaded Designer. System fonts appear in the character panel but don't seem to render. Like many commercial studios we use suitcase font management. Is it compatible with Designer? BTW. I've been using Adobe products for decades and Affinity could be the biggest and most welcome news in years. (say no more).
