    ThirtyFiveThousand got a reaction from iulisvectordesign in The ability to edit order of swatches in palette...   
    It’s a minor thing, but I’d like to be able to create/sample a color then slide it around to put it next to other colors. Right now, colors remain in the order they were created/sampled, and there shall they stay. The only workaround is to sample and re-add the colors to the palatte and delete the previous ones. Add/delete is not quite as efficient as drag-and-drop would be for this procedure.

    ThirtyFiveThousand reacted to Puca in [By Design] Exporting an artboard with a slash in the name (/) results in folder creation   
    If I create an artboard with a slash in its name (“8 1/2 x 11 Artboard” for example), then when I export that slice in the Export persona, anything before the slash becomes a new folder (“8 1”) and anything after becomes part of the file name (“2 x 11 Artboard.pdf” for example).
    It seems like your developers are not ‘escaping’ the slash when submitting the file name to the file system.
    For now, I’ve resorted to going decimal (“8.5 x 11 Artboard”) and that works fine.

    ThirtyFiveThousand got a reaction from shawnthroop in “Shear” Transformation in vertical plane   
    Thanks for the tip, Alfred. But my problem stems from my need to make more freeform, visually based changes. I don’t always enter a piece with a stack of pre-made calculations.

    ThirtyFiveThousand got a reaction from shawnthroop in “Shear” Transformation in vertical plane   
    Currently, the “shear” function of the Transform Studio within Designer only shears objects along the ‘x’ axis, or horizontally. To shear vertically, the user has to turn the target object 45 degrees (on its side), reorient the control handles, perform “shear” function, turn the object 45 degrees in the opposite direction, and either reorient the handles again, or deselect the object and allow the handles to default to their original rotation. If the resulting vertical shear is not correct, the user has to start over to attempt to correct the shear. 
    A second “shear” control would make the vertical shearing process so much easier. The two controls could be named “Shear X” and “Shear Y”, or “Shear Horz” and “Shear Vert”. It would be something to keep users from going crazy while Affinity continues to steer itself down its chosen roadmap and finally implement the Envelope Vector Warp users have been promised. I honestly would really really really really really prefer the Vector Warp, but Vertical Shear I’d be willing to take now. Soon. Like, during the next update.

    ThirtyFiveThousand reacted to Alfred in “Shear” Transformation in vertical plane   
    For changes which are visually based, we really need to be able to effect rotation and shear via the canvas instead of the Transform Studio. We can do this in the desktop apps, but I can’t see any way to do it in the iPad apps.

    ThirtyFiveThousand reacted to TonyO in Lasso Tool not working AD 1.7 iPad OS   
    I reported this same thing, It works if you release your 2 finger modifier before finishing the lasso. The devs said they are going to make it work as expected.

    ThirtyFiveThousand reacted to toltec in A way to move small shapes without clicking inside?   
    That is a bug, or at least a very poor implementation of a software feature. Lots of people have been complaining about that and let us pray Serif fix it in the next release of Designer. It is really naff at the moment and lets the whole program down.
    Solutions (sort of).
    A. Use the Transform panel and swipe across the X or Y controllers to move it.
    B. Draw a larger shape (like a rectangle) and select that and the small object. You can then use the larger shape as a handle to move the smaller shape. A bit of a bodge but it works quite well.

    ThirtyFiveThousand reacted to jamesclarke in Ability to lock a layer without going into secondary menu   
    In the same way as it is possible to delete a layer when it is selected, it would be nice to be able to lock it too.  Ideally, I would love to see a faded out lock button next to the on/off button next to each layer,  where it currently appears once it has been locked.

    ThirtyFiveThousand got a reaction from abstractmark in Affinity Designer to Adobe Illustrator: best practices?   
    Yes, Lee D, your statement is true. But what I’m looking for is which of the some things have to be rasterized for the trip across. For example: any clipping mask assemblies (you know, the shapes pasted inside other shapes) sent from .afdesigner to .svg arrived in .al as rasterized images on top of empty, unstroked shapes. So now I know that this particular .afdesigner feature will not survive the .svg conversion journey to .ai. And now, so do all of you.
    This is the data I’m looking for. If anyone has any practical data about .afdesigner/.svg/.ai conversions, I’d really like to know more.

    Started this one as a sketch on a stormy day. I wanted to make it look like it was a photographed piece made from construction paper. The best part was being able to complete the entire thing on my iPad from anywhere I happened to be, rather than sitting at a desk or with a rapidly warming laptop across my thighs. My first piece with the soon-to-be industry standard!

    Known problem if you are using Apple Pencil, only workaround until they fix it is use your finger to select a colour using the colour picker unfortunately.

    Hi ThirtyFiveThousand,

    I've bumped this with development. As Paul has said you should be able to use a finger to select a colour still.

    As it stands, Affinity Designer is the Margarita in the unsalted glass, the load of clothes from the dryer without the Febreeze, the video game boss fight to which you’ve brought the +9 Sword (to be fair, there are those of us who would take on the boss using the +2 Dagger just to make a point! *pun*). Designer stands poised to be a serious challenger to the Adobe empire, even more so with the release of the iOS version, when (if) that happens. All it would take, in my opinion, would be the fulfillment of the four year old promise that would allow us to shape text instead of having to carve closed shapes by hand. For us faithful few who pray everyday to be able to reproduce the Lucasfilm Logo without taking an extra 3 hours to do so, an ‘envelope distortion’ function would be the answer to those prayers. The ability to curve, arch, bend, or wave text, or even converted text shapes, instead of simply handing in text-on-a-curve to unimpressed clients and co-workers, would make at least one of us out here ecstatic enough to hand over cash or PayPal transactions (or iOS App Store 5-star reviews *HINT*) for granting us the ability. Until then, Affinity Designer will continue to be reviewed by everyone I’ve found on YouTube as the application that is ALMOST good enough to be the greatest.

    Affinity Designer not having an envelope distortion function is like the doughnut shop that refuses to sell coffee; you are one self-imposed limitation away from making a fortune.
