  3. Hello everyone, I've been working on a project within publisher (1.7.1 - Mac client) and I went to export the project as a PDF and got a issue saying there was "Overflowing Text" within the project, I clicked "Ignore and continue" to continue with the export. When I continued with the export, selected PDF and a DPI of 192 and selected a location for it to save I then got a error message, saying "An error occurred while exporting to (location)" I've tried saving to different locations, closing and opening the app, resetting the settings and restarting the computer with no luck. I then tried exporting a single page as a PDF and that worked fine, so I started to delete pages to see if any where causing a issue with the export. I then came across "page 13" in the project, removing this page removed the "Overflowing Text" error and the profile exported perfectly. So the issue seems to be with this page, tho this page haves no "overflowing text" even if it did I don't understand how this would cause the project not the export correctly. Has any one else had this issue? For me this is the second time this has happened (within different projects) P.S Here is the working file with the issue.

  4. Hello, I was wondering if within Affinity Designer is there a "Free transform tool" to allow perspective distort with shapes, this is something that can be done within illustrator where you can take two points and can move them together or further apart with equal distance like the example below. You can kinda do this with the "Corner" tool set to straight but this is set to only one angle when perspective distort can change the angle. Thank you for your time and I hope you have a great day.
  5. Hello everyone! I've been loving the 1.7 update and publisher, tho I've been having a issue when moving between apps, I have a project in Affinity Publisher and I wanted to move it into the (Full version of) Affinity Designer. (I know Publish haves the Designer Persona tho it dose not have the persona within designer such as the Export Persona) I needed to use the Export person to export a slice from the project. So I went to File > Edit in Designer (this moves the project from Publisher over to Designer (full version (not persona)) I then was able to do what I needed but there seems to move no way to move the project back from Designer to Publisher? Is there way to move the project back? (same issue from Publisher to Photo) Thanks for your time, Andrew.
  6. Hello everyone!! I've been having a issue with the "Find and Replace" studio panel. If I try to copy text and then use CMD-V to paste the text into either the "Find" or "Replace With" input sections. When I try to use CMD-V to paste it would just paste the text into a text box within the project window. For a workaround I would have to right click into the input field and click paste that way. Video: Find and replace bug.mov Is this happing to anyone else? Thank you for your time, Andrew.

    Unable to use CMD V in "Find and Replace"

    Thanks everyone, I found out the issue. I chance how Copy and Paste works within designer. I chance the paste to paste with without format. Changed it back and it now working fine.
  8. Hello everyone! I've been trying to load some .CUBE LUTs into Affinity Photo on iPad (1.7) tho when ever I click on LUT > Load and head over to my .cube LUTs they just show up grey and unable to click on and load them into Designer (files are all ready downloaded within the files app) The LUTs work fine on the Mac version only having the issue on the iPad. Anyone know how to fix the issue? Thank you for your time, Andrew.

    Unable to load .cube LUTs?

    Hello Callum thank you for the replay, I tried with dropbox and still no luck loading in LUTs.
  10. Hey, I’ve been using a keyboard more with my iPad over the past couple of days now and tho it has some shortcuts within Photo for iOS it would be amazing to have some more to play with. For example when using the: “Smart selection brush tool” pressing “alt” it will change to the other mode e.g. if using “Add” pressing alt will change to “Subtract” [ and ] will change the brush change brush size. “Alt” and 1,2,3 or 4 will change the persona’s mode e.g. “photo, “selections” “liquify” soon. Ctrl, shift and + or - to change blend modes. Cmd + E export Cmd + Shift + E Save a copy Cmd + R Flip horizontal Cmd + Shift + R Flip vertical These are just examples of some and will add more soon. But what do you think are you using a keyboard with Photo’s and would like to see more hotkeys added to the program if so what would you like added.
  11. Hello everyone, loving the new 1.7 update!! I have a question about layer/object cropping within Designer you can select a layer/object and use the "Crop" tool you can crop the layer and not the whole canvas. Are you able to do this within photo? since if you have a layer/object, select and use the crop tool you can only crop the whole canvas and not the single layer. (like in designer) If you can't do this would be cool to either have a secondary crop tool within the crop tool drop down menu (similar to the "node" tool) or when you use the crop tool have a sub menu on the tool bar to switch to layer mode. Here is a video showing how it works in Designer compared to Photo) Croping.mov Thank for your time, Andrew.

    Crop layer like in Designer?

    Updated video (Should work now) Yeah the Rectangle Tool method is the way I've been doing it so far. Would be cool to be able to have a sub crop tool (or a option in the contextual toolbar) to be able to crop layer only like in Affinity Designer. (or like in illustrator) Thanks for the replies! and thank you MED for the video!

    Object scale bug

    Hello everyone ^-^ I’ve been having a bug when selecting multiple objects then scaling them object + to fingers (to scale from center) The bug seems to happen ever now and them when scaling with two fingers (the bug also happens in both photo/designer for the iPad) If you select a object and then either scale the object first and press and hold two fingers to scale from center fixes the bug or just selecting, holding two fingers then scale the object slowly also seems to fix the issue. VIDEO: 3EA49036-C140-432B-B4CD-81F23699C82C.MOV Anyone else having this issue? Thank you for your time, Andrew.

    Selecting nodes?

    Hello, I just got the new version of Affinity Designer for the iPad but I cant seem to get node selection to work. You used to be able to select a node, then press and hold with your other finger to select more nodes. Now it seems there is a lasso mode is the way your ment to select them? That two fingers creates the lasso and 3 changes it mode. This works all right for the first selection but if you go to select more objects to the same selection it seems to play down a dot that creates a allways on lasso, you can connect the lines together to finish the lasso but it dose not seem to add that selection to the all ready selected nodes (like if you where to do the lasso normally) EDIT: The issue on the lasso node being placed seem to happen when you use two fingers to create the lasso then with the 3rd finger to change the mode to add pressing that 3rd finger on the selection creates the lasso node I’ve attached a video: 5F88446B-7D3C-445D-88FD-6A933AA79835.MOV

    Selecting nodes?

    I figured out how to use it (I was just using it wrong) @DM1 the reason for this is there are two ways to select nodes now. First way: Press and hold two fingers on the screen and then draw a shape (continue to hold two finger to deselect nodes or let go of one or both fingers to add, once you stop drawing you have made a selection, you can then repeat the same step to either add more nodes to the selection or remove some. Second way: The second way is to press and hold two fingers on the display then click once with the apple pencil (not draw like the first version), this will then then allow you to have a always on screen selection. Once you made the selection you want connect the end with with start point (like if you where using the pen tool to create a shape) Here is a video to show what Im talking about.

  16. Hello, with the new update to 1.7 on Mac I seem to be unable to space or distribute objects more then one object. When I select for example two objects and try to space or distribute, the icons are greyed out. On top of that where are the advance option to change how these work (such as inputting numbers to change the width of the horizontal distribution. You used to have a single icon you can click on and would give you a drop down menu with more option now you just seem to have either a row of icons or the single icons with no drop down menu. Other that that, thank you for your time. Andrew.
  17. Thats not the issue (since I can still scroll down (with the scroll wheel on my mouse) The issue was I did not see the Alignment tool since the UI for the icon was missing (I highlighted where the icon is meant to be) the same is still there just no the icon, I restarted my Mac and the icon is there now.
  18. Hmm... okay it is there but there seems to be a UI bug where the icon dose not show up. I tried a restart of the app and the icon dose not show up (will try a computer restart to see if that fixes)
  19. Yeah I don't seem to have the option to add that to my tool bar anymore.
  20. Only my UI reset when updating still have all other settings the same.
  21. Hello everyone! I've been having this issue for a while now when working on a document within Affinity Designer running on the new iPad Pro 12.9 2018 (the Face ID version) with 500 GB hard drive and when working on a project the App will crash sometimes. Here is a video: IMG_0678.TRIM.mov The project within this video contains two artbords one at 5520px by 2886 and the second at 1920 by 1080. (This file was originally created on the Mac and moved over to the iPad.) Dose anyone know if there is a way around this? Thank you for your time.
