    Zbigg reacted to Old Bruce in How to create a folded newspaper on A1 size paper?   
    Is this a one sheet of paper print job? This is set up for one sheet, the bottom pages are not for use, do not export more than the first two spreads. Also I am not sure I understand the size of the sheet, I am probably oversized by two.

    Zbigg reacted to Sean P in AD stuck but Beta works   
    Hi Zbigg,

    The crash report you've attached is actually from 1.9.0, however unfortunately due to Window's Native Imaging of DLLs there isn't any information to actually go on.

    The good news as you say is that it is no longer happening with the beta, however this could be a red herring and instead be caused by something in your user data (the beta and retail share different data locations).

    Would you mind just trying the following please:
    Go to %appdata%\Affinity\Designer\  and rename the '1.0' folder to '1.0_Old' Start the application If this still crashes then it certainly does sound like the issue has been fixed in the latest beta. Then rename the '1.0_Old' folder back to '1.0' to retain any user settings for when the retail gets updated
    If it doesn't crash then it could very well be something related to your app data. In this case could you zip up and attach the '1.0_Old' folder please.

    Zbigg reacted to robert.sarudy in Product mockup with Affinity and Blender   
    Here are some screenshots of a graphic pitch I have worked on. I used Affinity Designer to create graphic labels and texturing maps. Photo was used for some simple easy colour correction. A colleague of mine asked me what is on fire because of the orange sparkles I guess it was the computer during rendering.
    Then I used the renders to create a demo animation. Unfortunately this project was not developed into anything real  but at least I learned some new things  
    Watermarked demo music is from Musicbed - https://www.musicbed.com/songs/seeds/36381

    Zbigg got a reaction from PaulAffinity in Shortcuts not functional...   
    Shortcuts either working improperly or not working at all. /it takes to use given tool in regular mode first then assigned shortcut use to work/
    Sorry guys but w/out shortcuts real time job is impossible.
    Moreover: Id strongly and kindly request following:
    -thats very nice AFP indicates possible shortcut conflict when trying to assign new hotkey BUT: what could be expected is *override option instead browsing all these menus looking for conflicting key...
    Override sets presently assigned hotkey and leaves empty previous one.
    -Additionaly Id suggest RMB context menu 'Assign/Remove shortcut' when hovering over an icon/menu to make whole process effective /see: Blender/

    Not sure if this is what you mean, but have you tried going to Zeichenbereich/Drawing Area, select the global color and then making it transparent (by selecting the no-fill icon)? That seems to work (at least, i can create .png file without background).

    You can archive this by adding a stroke and set the fill opacity in the layer effects window to 0%. This will show only the fx, but removes the fill/stroke.

    Zbigg reacted to Sean P in Crash on Save As...   
    Thanks for the file! It appears as though the Symbol object in the Symbols Panel was likely causing the crash, as I was also getting a crash when trying to delete that. I will pass that on to development to see what they say.

    Anyways I created a snapshot of your document, and then created a new document from that snapshot (without the symbols) and that was able to save for me! You should be able to continue working with this document!

    Zbigg reacted to toltec in Trim Transparency in Affinity   
    In normal ‘document’ mode, Affinity Designer works like a page layout program, such as Quark or Word for that matter. You set a page size, apply bleed, then place objects on the page. Neither Quark, Word or Designer (or any such program as far as I know) trims a page to an image placed on it?
    That’s why there are canvas based programs like Photoshop or Photo, which are based around an image and make that job easy.
    The choices are to use Photo (which is designed for that purpose) or use Designer’s artboard feature which does allow you to trim to a canvas (or artboard).
    Photo does not ‘clip’ if there is a layer that extends outside the masked area, hidden or not. Could that be your problem?

    Zbigg reacted to claidheamdanns in GREP Styles   
    I also agree that GREP in styles needs to be an essential development. For me that will be the jumping off point of abandoning Adobe altogether and going completely with Affinity.
    I use GREP in styles extensively, and nearly daily — especially in big publications like a magazine or book, where there are hundreds of pages to keep track of, and you don't want to have to run the same F/R every time text has been changed or added to.

    Enhancing this productivity thread: Id even say: Drag-and-drop images onto AP window AND /like INDD/ you could then select multiple images AND, holding some control key /CTRL,Shift,Alt/ - align them immediately in even columns/row - see INDD. Linking is priority IMHO. Embedding may have its advantages but it can clogg the app very quickly.
