  1. I've tried creating a "user variable" but it doesn't have the expected behaviour: It does not update globally in all the other slice occurrences. So instead, since all i'm doing is creating a variable for the filename, it would also work to have a builtin variable for it. Thanks!
  2. same basic problem: can't see text selection highlight. But with this unusual twist: If I zoom out, I can eventually see the selection. Thankfully the text is still legible. Font size has no effect, it is solely tied to the zoom scale.
  3. hmm... no traction, eh? Does this idea fall flat or am i doing things wrong coz a solution already exists? I'd love to know how others are managing the need to "lock" skew, aspect/scale, but "unlock" position, and rotation of children. Do you just toggle constantly?
  4. What do the fine folks at Serif recommend as an alternative to Acrobat? i.e.: Basic PDF manipulation: Merge/Extract/Export
  5. I would like to suggest some revisions to the "Lock children" feature, that admittedly cater to how I would prefer to work, but I image it would be generally good for all. 1. Hold "Alt" while dragging grips to temporarily toggle the default behaviour set by the checkbox AND/OR, add the ability to assign a keyboard shortcut to toggle the setting. 2. Have optional sub-settings, similar to snaps drop-down, which would allow people to choose what is locked, when locking is on. (Position, Rotation, Stretch/Scale [+lock aspect], Skew... perhaps even similar options for affecting fill gradients and patterns) The reason for this is that I almost always want children to move and rotate with the parent, but almost never want them to alter their size, or rotation, or skew. Yet with the current setup, I find myself constantly needing to toggle the setting even though my needs almost never change. Thanks for considering this idea, and thanks for a great product!!
  6. Definitely buy Affinity! Both products have their strengths, and inevitably each with have features not present in the other. The only thing that I truly miss when working with Affinity is Inkscape's AMAZING node editing. For example: Insert = add new nodes at midpoints of all selected nodes Ctrl + click node = cycle thru node types ! = Invert node selection. Grow or shrink node selection; spatially or along path. Sculpt selected nodes based on distance from drag point. (ie, elastic distortion) Node hovering along with any transform shortcut-keys (eg: scale or rotate) will perform the transform using the hovered node as the base point! (Although, this is a larger problem in general about Affinity's lack of nudge controls for scale and rotate) Nowadays, I always work in Affinity by default. But if i've got precision node editing to do, i've got to decide if it's worth the effort to pop-out into Inkscape. Also, maybe it's just my install, but the Affinity node editing doesn't seem to work as advertised (specifically thinking of ctrl+drag curve out from node). Anyway, like I said, buy Affinity; you'll end up loving both and dreaming of a collab.
  7. The ability to real-time edit embedded files is fantastic! Is it possible to do the same across Designer and Photo? (If so, I can't figure it out) To clarify, what i mean: having a parent Affinity Photo mockup open, but the child design open in Affinity Designer and see edits in real-time just like if both were open in the same app. Something like: right-click "Open in Designer" (Ultimately, I'm imagining the child as a separate linked file; but is such a thing possible for the embedded Designer content as is currently implemented?) For now, I'm just hitting Designer>Save, Photo>Replace, ad nausium. (using two separate files) Thanks! Lovin' these apps more every day!
  8. i'm making a collection of assets to be used in PowerPoint slides and just discovered that WMF/EMF export cannot be used as an Export Persona Preset!!! Time to bust out the AutoHotKey chops //grumble, grumble... >:[
  9. I would happily pay a few bucks for PagePlus while we await the much-anticipated Affinity Publisher, but not if the work done with it becomes obsolete or unusable. So i'm wondering if Affinity Publisher plans to include a rock-solid conversion from PagePlus?
