    Curvature continuity

    Absolutely. It's subtle, but very classy. Could make AD stand out from the crowd!
  2. Just came across an interesting article on curvature continuity: it's a subtle, but very elegant, version of rounded corners. I think this would be a terrific addition tio AD's feature set (AI requires a $50 plugin to do the same), and I'd love to see this implemented into Designer, perhaps as options on the Curve and Rounded Rectangle tools. Cheers. The article: https://hackernoon.com/apples-icons-have-that-shape-for-a-very-good-reason-720d4e7c8a14#.eckdl9bhg The AI plugin: http://www.pixeology.com/Spiro/features.html
  3. Thanks, Callum, and apologies for my perceived impatience. I added a thread to Feature Requests this morning.
  4. I'd like the ability to draw an object over several artboards in AD, and when I export the doc to PDF have the object show up on all the pages that it touches. I haven't been able to find a way to do this in Designer. If I put a line on artboard 1, it won't print (ie. export to PDF) on artboard 2, and if I put the line on no artboard, it displays on screen properly, but doesn't show up in the PDF. The goal for me is to be able to produce sewing patterns which I can then sell online. For more info, see this thread. Thanks!
  5. I take it the answer is "no". Guess I'll head over to Feature Requests, then.
  6. My lady makes sewing patterns with Illustrator, and we'd like to bring her into the AD fold, but have run into a stumbling block. Here's what we're trying to do: Create multiple A4 size artboards and align them edge to edge both horizontally and vertically (ie. we create a sort of grid out of adjacent artboards). We then draw the full sewing pattern across the artboards, and export each artboard as a PDF for clients to print out at home and tape together to produce the full-size clothing pattern. In order to make this work, however, we need to be able to draw lines that will print on every artboard that the line goes over. So for example, a line from the top left artboard that continues onto the artboard just to the right should show up on both pages in the final PDFs. I haven't been able to find a way to do this in Designer. If we put the line on artboard 1, it won't print on artboard 2, and if we put the line on no artboard, it displays on screen properly, but doesn't show up in the PDF. Is there something I'm overlooking? Is there a way to print a single object over multiple artboards?

    Oh hey, look at that! I wasn't aware of the spacebar feature.That should work just beautifully! Thanks, Patrick.

    Alfred is right. I just want to see the original change that I made, not make a different one. Photoshop for example offers this option front and center by making cmd-Z toggle between undo and redo so that one can compare the latest change to what came before. I'd like to be able to do that in Affinity. A simple preference to disable undoable/redoable selections would solve this issue. Is that not possible?

    Any word on this? Surely I'm not the only one that finds this frustrating.

    I can absolutely see how many might want to redo a very complex selection, but I don't use Designer with terribly complex graphics, and so undoable selection/deselection is quite annoying. Here is what I'm faced with: Make a change to my graphic Oops, I don't like that change. Undo it. Click outside the selection to deselect and hide the bounding boxes and handles so that I can properly view my graphic. Hmm, I think I want to see that change again. Drat, I can't redo it now. Make the original change again manually. This is a totally natural way of working for me on my Mac, and undoable select/deselect gets right in the way. If every other app in the world behaved similarly, this would be no big deal, but Affinity is the odd one out. I can understand why this feature is there, but not all of us are producing complex artwork. Some of us are just working on a logo, for example, and have no need to redo a selection. Affinity, please consider making a preference to disable undoable and redoable selections/deselections.

    The problem is with the REDO. See my July 1 post above for details. This behavior is non-standard app behavior for me. I don't need to undo or redo a select/deselect, and whatever benefits it may bring seem minor compared to the inconvenience of not being able to redo a good chunk of my actions.

    In other words, would it be possible to add a preference to make select/deselect NOT undoable/redoable?

    I see. I personaly don't need udoable select and deselect, especially if it means that I lose the ability to undo other actions as a result. Could this perhaps be added as a preference?
