    It should be on by default IMHO (if it is not already) to avoid surprise and searching. Users can still tweak performance on their own if they have problems.
     
    Glad to have found a solution, anyway

    X-Raym got a reaction from Fred Lespine in Work: Tous des Moutons ! (Slideshow Video)   
    Hi everyone !
    So far I used Affinity Designer just on small individual taks or illustration, but I recently had to use it extensively to make an educational video with a friend of mine. This requires to do around 50 different illustrations,  mostly custom creations with few assets from Freepik here and there. I had to learn both flat design characters drawing and Affitnity Designer Photo.
    As a global feedback for Affinity Designer, I want to say that it was a very pleasing software to use (nice UI, no lags, no crash), and I'm glad it has this very nice business model.
    The video is in French, but here the result :
     
     
    During the elaboration of this work, I find several limitations we could have make it easier. I opended and bumped various other forum threads, but here is a reacap of things I would really love to have for the next series of illustration I would have to make :
     
     
    This one is a must have for me. Almost all my illustrations have some kind of symetry involved. This will really help
     
     
    This will really help making some variations for a duplicated objets. Would be very nice !
     
     
    This would help making some automation.
     
     
     
    This would be the Graal and ultimately could solve other issue, like layer name processing etc. It would be very appreciated !
     
     
    If I had to choose only one, the first I mentioned would be really helpful. Please bump the thread if you agree, hoping it will interest Affinity Designer devs
     
    Thx for your attention, Cheers !

    My FR are the same, though I found other issue while working:
    The need for Live Filter in Affinity designer (mostly, pesperctive) The need for free transform tool Ways to resccale text or layer to 1:1 Would be nice to have updates on this !
    Best,

    Especially needed when we want to set in perspective a group of layers.

    No, objects do not forget their original size. When a Group is resized, the Group's transformation matrix changes, but each object inside the Group retains its original size and its personal transformation matrix.
    The Transform panel could have an additional pair of fields for the width and height scaling factors of a selected object/Layer/Group/Compound/Symbol just like it already has fields for rotation and skew, by which these factors can be reset.

    X-Raym reacted to R C-R in Live perspective: real?   
    FWIW, according to Affinity Review #1, an Apple Books publication no longer available from Apple, what eventually became the Affinity range began life as a research project to study the feasibility of creating a memory management system efficient enough that it could support "high-end photo editing" without using much memory. Initial development work was done on an iPad with a paltry 80MB of app memory to work with.

    There are no batch processing options in APub but its Photo Persona (available if you also have Affinity Photo installed) does support macros (has a Library & a Macro panel).

    X-Raym reacted to Aammppaa in Add random rnd() as a mathematical function to the field input expressions   
    Now that we have the ability to transform each object in a selection independently, I would like the ability to do so by a random amount.
    Example: select all instances of a screw head in my illustration and rotate by a random number of degrees between 0 and 360.
    Function would be something like…
    rnd(min value, max value)

    X-Raym reacted to Pete123 in Search, find or filter layer name   
    I often need to work with documents that have an unhealthy amount of layers.
    A fast way to search a certain layer by it's name would really help.
    Now I need to review the complete layer list over and over again, sometimes missing the layer, starting over etc...
    This is actually the only feature I miss from Photoshop.
     
    I know there is a feature where you can click objects and have the layer selected, but that does not help me because most layers I need to find are not visible.

    @dominik
    Hi, thanks for the suggestion !
    This makes me think that the best way to integrate this feature would be indeed to have it has a Transform Tool toolbar button mode switch. This way it will work with mouse, but also with values entered right in the Transform panel.

    X-Raym reacted to R C-R in Rename groups - batch processing   
    I noticed that in your second post in that topic you listed 4 "keys to a good API," among them a standard scripting language & extensive documentation. Somewhere in one of the older topics, there is a discussion about which language that should be, but there was never any consensus about that.
    In an earlier reply in the one you posted to @TonyB wrote that they had not "yet" written an API & that it "would take a while," but promised that they will have "some kind of extensibility" in the future.
    You also listed "Lots of privilege" as a key. Depending on how it is implemented, that one could be a little tricky to implement as long as Serif is selling the apps in the Mac App Store because of Apple's ever stricter sandboxing requirements for apps purchased from the MAS.
    So all things considered, we should be getting some unspecified kind of extensibility eventually, but we will have to wait & see when that will be & what it will enable.
  23. Thanks
    X-Raym reacted to TonyB in API and Development Guide available?   
    We don't currently have an API because we haven't written it yet. We have lot to do so it will take a while but we will have some kind of extensibility in the future.
  24. Thanks

    Hello @X-Raym,
    this is an interesting suggestion.
    While what I want to add is a mere improvement of your workaround and not a solution it still speeds up the process in some cases.
    Transform the selected items by a percentage value in the transform panel (e.g. type 'w100px*0,8'). This shrinks the group of selected objects to a width of 80%. On the context toolbar of the Move Tool click on 'Transform Objects Individually'. Type into the width field the current value plus '*1/0,8'. This transforms all selected objects back to there original width. This saves you to do this individually to all objects. This of course only works if you know the factor of transformation. It won't work with an visual adjustment only. In this context your suggestion remains valid.
    Cheers,
    d.
