  1. I have this technique I like to employ where a string of text is completely written out using capital letters only the non-first letters are a smaller font. This gives the appearance of title style capitalization without using lower-case shapes. It might not look great zoomed in but from a distance it looks brilliant especially when there are all caps acronyms like FPGA> I would like to have this font style easily usable across fonts. I am wondering how one might set this up as a character/paragraph style(s) in Affinity Designer. Currently I very manually have to apply a different style to the first letter vs the rest of the word.
  2. That is certainly a great option but I want to be able to do this in the font of the document.
  3. Alright so I am trying to create my resume within Affinity Designer. There are two operations I am trying to do in the header and they are prooving to be a lot more difficult then perhaps they could be. I am wondering if I am forgetting some feature/workflow that might make this easier. Could you please look at these videos of me working with the application and see if you can think of a way that these operations could be easier? Situation 1: The goal is to be able to edit the font/content/character of this text and have it automatically center. Video of current workflow Situation 2: The goal is to have the two black dots centered in the screen and surrounding the email. Video of current workflow If you can think of any features/workflows etc that would make these goals easier to obtain please do let me know. Thankyou
  4. I really appreciate the help here yall I like the glyph solution but what about the following situation. I have 3 text frames. The aim is to have them overall be centered and equally spaced a part. Even though I can center to the spread as soon as I start messing with horizontal distribution their center will no longer be THE center. Is there a good workflow that does this differently but allows that?
  5. My swatch panel in Affinity Designer app is very empty and I would love to fill it with some nice palettes of pastels and flat design colors etc. However I am unable to find palettes anywhere that are compatible with Affinity Designer. Does anyone know of any or have some to share? Is this even possible to do?
  6. It is really sad that most of my experiences thus far with Affinity Designer have all been crashes. On the exporter I have found it to crash a lot especially when choosing DPI on SVG export or DPI on PDF export. The worst thing is it remembers where you were in the interface next time you open so even if you close the app then reopen the app will crash upon export since it remembers you were editing DPI.
  7. I did notice something interesting on my new account that doesn't crash it would appear that the DPI box flashes briefly upon being clicked. It may be worth it to examine the stack trace to see why that is happening. Here is a video of it
  8. Update: If you create a new user account it no longer crashes. Functionality is normal. I have went through and deleted everything with affinity in it within my /User/Library folder to see if that would fix it with no avail. Still crashes but only on my main account. How do I address this kind of issue?
  9. I am sorry to report that this error is still occurring in Mac OS High Sierra
  10. I did my best to quit every application that showed up in the activity monitor the dock and the toolbar. The only one I couldn't close is wanderlist's toolbar but I doubt that is causing it. Unfortunately the same error occurred.
  11. Unfortunately the only difference is that it doesn't repeatedly crash if you don't clear the interface settings. The new version doesn't appear to remember that sort of thing. I have created a video showing this bug and here is a beta version crash report
  12. Also removed and re-downloaded the app to see if it was merely a downloading corruption and unfortunately it has the same crashing error. I would highly recommend testing your app on a 15 inch MacBook Pro 2017 3.1GHz Intel i7 with 16GB of memory and Intel HD Graphics 630. It also may be worth looking into if any of my other apps could conflict with the instructions run when someone touches the dpi box.
  13. I was trying to make a business card by starting with Staples' pdf design template. Unfortunately Affinity Designer promptly crashes upon trying to open that file. The file in question has been attached. Template.pdf

    Certainly. Out of respect for future people reading this post I have put it up at a Pastebin link.
  16. I use AD 1.5.5 which is the most updated version (at least the App Store updates section says there is no updates for it) It is not a specific file that causes this crash rather any time I try to mess with a DPI setting anywhere in the app whether it be on the export of a pdf or other rasterized formats or upon the setup of a new document. Any time I try to edit a DPI setting anywhere within the app it crashes.
