  1. Thank you but I was seeing if there was an alternative approach, as I'm needing to see the live updated results in Designer when editing in Photo.
  2. Hi there, I'm wondering if it's possible to have 2 files: 1 file saved as .afdesign 1 file saved as .afphoto I want to then be able to add the .afphoto file in to my .afdesign and edit the .afphoto in Photo. Is it possible for those changes made in Photo to then appear in Designer in real time? This would be an amazing alternative to switching back and forth between programs (especially when tracing). Thanks!
  3. Hey Sean, thanks for addressing this. When I first witnessed the artboards issue it was on a new file using that version. I've recreated the issue on my other PC with the same version and you can see the issue by alt-dragging an artboard, then renaming the duplicate in the layers panel. Then go to the export options and you'll notice the new artboard name isn't there. Let me know if you require any more information. Cheers!
  4. Hey there! I just updated to the latest beta of AD ( and I've noticed 2 issues: Cant export new artboards unless I save and reopen the file (it won't pick up the artboard names in the export screen) On some occurrances I noticed that the layer thumbnails weren't updating (my images were not rotated anymore but the layer thumbs showed them still rotated) The artboard one is a bit of a deal breaker for me at the moment, as I use the tool heavily to quick mockups which require a lot of assorted artboards in the document. Anyways I appreciate all the work and effort that goes in to each update, thanks!
  5. Hi there, I noticed today that pasting style from an shape WITH a stroke to a shape WITHOUT a stroke doesn't make the stroke appear until the stroke colour is modified on the pasted styled shape. I'm running the latest Beta (Affinity Designer), Windows 10. This doesn't seem to be an issue when doing the same process with text objects though. Thanks.
  6. Thanks for letting me know. It's a bit of a relief to know I don't have to separate layers in to separate artboards then. Do you know if there's any way to determine the slices in the Draw Persona? I find the slice selection a bit odd to use as it doesnt support snapping to layers.
  7. Hi there, I'm new to the forums but I've been a huuuge fan of Designer and Photo for a few months now. :) The other day I had to design an email banner which was sliced in to 2 images which aligned up perfectly. I made the new banner image using 2 artboards that would then easily export as 2 slices, the issue is they both require the same photo background underneath and text that overlaps both artboards. When I made this in the Draw Persona it appeared perfectly, though when exporting in the Export Persona, it would not export the top and bottom layers that are outside of the artboards themselves. Is there any way I can export these 2 artboard slices whilst keeping the bottom background layer (below the artboards) and the top text layer (above the artboards)? Thanks! :D
