    UncleMonkey got a reaction from Sean P in [By Design] Designer Paste Inside fails in Mac OS 10.12.5   
    Thank you, Sean P! That did the trick, where a curve was concerned — so far, even text with no fill doesn't show the Paste Inside result, but that's a minor point. The Paste Inside topic in Designer Help shows that relative placement is preserved, and I should have picked up on that. But it might be worth adding to the Help explanation that the pasted object won't move: normally, cut and paste puts the object where you're pointing at the time of pasting. Once again, the quick help from Affinity is a lifesaver. I just hope you can keep selling enough licenses to add all the features people are still waiting for, and leave Adobe in the dust.

    Hi UncleMonkey,

    Without the file I can't fully see what is going on, however from what I can see is that the lines are placed inside the H Shape (as you used Paste Inside). When objects are inside other ones they can only be seen if you have them positioned so that they occupy the same region. The reason you can see the lines is because the selection bounds are still shown but the objects are not (this explains why you don't see them when you click outside - they have been deselected). If you move those lines up and over the H you should see them. Hopefully these 2 screenshots should make it clear.

    Hi UncleMonkey,
     
    I logged this with development a while ago but they said it is a 'Mac thing'. They would like to find a way around resolving this and have left the bug report open so hopefully we can find a solution at some point. For now though, there isn't a lot I can suggest

    UncleMonkey got a reaction from フィリップ in Support for Thai text!   
    Right now both Artistic and Frame text tools mishandle Thai language text. Thai has a number of glyphs that go over or under the preceding glyph, like these two which spell the word duu, meaning to look: ดู In Designer, typing those two characters gives ด ู, which is an unreadable garble.
     
    Bizarrely, Affinity Photo handles Thai artistic and frame text okay, so the workaround isn't a hard one. But why make any workaround necessary?

    UncleMonkey got a reaction from manu schwendener in Affinity Photo: How to elegantly erase unwanted colors?   
    This thread's getting old, but I was stuck on this, and now I find (AP v. 1.4) it's really easy:
    sample the white background with the eyedropper in the Colour tab, and set that to the foreground color choose Select>Select Sampled Colour click on one of the yellow patches. I left the tolerance to 25%, and that selected all the yellow except for a few anti-aliasing pixels on the edges use the flood fill (paint can icon) to recolor selection to white repeat steps 2 to 4 on the pale yellow anti-aliasing pixels that are left around the areas you've recolored white set the foreground color to a suitable grey for anti-aliasing the black type repeat steps 2 to 4 on the yellowish-grey pixels where the yellow met the black type I ended up with a clean (as far as my old eyes can see) version after about two minutes' work.

    UncleMonkey got a reaction from peter in The Pumpkin Tutorial   
    Wow! What can I say? Terrific! Thanks a million. Beautifully organized. Just the right amount of info for a first plunge, and just the right amount of reasons why. Adobe should offer you $$$$ to write tutorials, but I figure I'm probably through with Adobe—there's something liberating about Affinity, and this tutorial is a huge plus. Hope you're back in the pink of health! Thank you, Mike!
