  1. H there, I wish we could rename the artboards when doubling click over its name direct from the canvas instead depending on the layer panel to do so... It would be much more intuitive! Reminous
  2. Hi there, Linking objects it's a common feature in some other layer based softwares and I don't use it very much... however, sometimes this is the only way to achieve what we want. It's different from grouping objects because sometimes you might want to move/scale to elements together from different layer for example. I know we can do it by selecting objects manually, but it's kind of annoying repeating this process every time... so, I'd love to just see a chain icon somewhere in the layer panel to make life a bit easier. Reminous.
  3. Hi there, You can actually achieve that today using two different methods: 1) Create your design using objects and artistic text, then group them and apply constraints (View/Studio/Constraints). Then set the text to not scale, you might want to constraint the left and top position as well. I bet that this would be de most common method since you're doing UX and the constraints were actually build with that in mind. 2) You could simple create your design with frame text instead artistic text... Then you just select your objects (group it if you want) and scale the whole think without worrying because the text frame will expand/stretch but the text will remain the same. If you want to scale the text, you can do it by using the second marker on the corner. I did two quick videos to illustrate it better. I hope it solves your problem! method 1.mov method 2.mov

    Align Space

    Hi there, Try selecting your objects, then click on "Alignment" button on the Tool Bar, then uncheck "Auto Distribute" for "Align Horizontal" (or vertical) then set any value the slide field... Should have the job done.
  5. I was just login in to report this same problem... we can no longer drag stuff to the Assets Panel
  6. Hi 99Combo, I also use AF for social medias. In my case I created an artboard template with everything I usually like background, text, logo, etc... then all you need to do is create an Asset. If you are a freak like myself, you would find very interesting create a new category for each client... After your artboard/asset is created, all you need to do is create any AF document with 72DPI/RGB and then drag our artboard into the document. I hope it helps! Reminous

    Collapse All

    I agree with you... little things that means a lot on the workflow.
  8. First of all, AD is getting better and better... However, going through the beta version I'd love to see a few things some of us have been craving since the first version. 1) Lines with arrowheads (pleaaaaaase) 2) Text warp (huge) 3) Layer panel improvements: I'd love to have an option to view only layers for the active Artboard... or at least have a better UX to represent Artboards, Layers, Pixel Layers, Groups, etc, right now it's quite confusing managing it since they all look pretty much the same - specially when you have multiple artboards 4) Colapse / Extend all layers at once (super useful) 5) Hide artboards - and not just its content 6) Rotate guide lines 7) Adding/Overlap multiple effects - apply a multiple layers of shadows on the same effect command There is much I know... If you guys agree or have any more request I'd love to hear from the community. Thanks! Reminous
  9. Hi guys, Question... is there any shorcut, or shortcut combo to fill a marquee selection or we always have to use the "Flood Fill Tool"? Thanks, Reminous
  10. Hi there, I keep finding myself messing with unwanted layers from others artboards when working in a document with multiple artworks... Is there a way to set the layers panel show only layers from the active artboard? Reminous
  11. Hi there, Not sure if anyone notice, but we have a bug when typing especial characters like "é", "á", "ó" on Publisher... These are very common characters in Portuguese (some in Spanish too). I'm using a "U.S International - PC" keyboard on my mac right now and the output when trying the combination keys for é is currently 'é I'm attaching a sample of what I'm trying to achieve, but I'll be glad to provide more details if needed. Thanks Reminous
  12. I fell you... I've being syncing all my assets, shortcuts in a DropBox folder since I started using Affinity as my main application... and it sucks, because any change I do I have to remember to upload to the cloud and sometimes I just forget... however it is the best approach I've found for now.

    Artboard Layout Panel

    I imagine that with a artboard panel (best approach I guess), the layers panel would show only layers from the selected artboard?
  14. Hi there, Wouldnt be nice if we could hide an Artboard? Sometimes I feel I need it in order to focus my attention in a specific artboard I am working on... The way it works now, we can only hide its content, so I guess it should make more sense if we could hide the entire thing instead. Reminous
  15. Hi! When working with many Artboards I just got lost in the layers panels sometimes, so I'm wondering if we could have these options to get life easier: In the settings, I'd love to have an option to make the layers visible only for the active Artboard; Rename the Artboard in the screen by double clicking over the edge of the page; A short cut to colapse all Layers from all Artboards of my document; When enlarging an Artboard, sometimes we over cross neighbor's Arboards (either from left, right, top or bottom). Id love to see AD organizing our mess by repositioning the Artboard according to previous spaces between them. The effect would look like pulling pages apart. Preview mode: I usually work with multiple Artboards, however, sometimes I wish I could see just one at the time to better focus or to show multiple suggestions (or a campaign) to my clients. May the force be with you! Reminous

    Hide Artboards

    I recently post some other insights about Artboards and I left this issue out... Any update about this bug? o.o

    Artboards suggestions

    I've been doing that for some time now, that's why I was hopping for a better solution... When you are working with 2, 4 even 10 artboards it is fine, however imagine a document with 15, 20 or more! Anyways, I appreciate your thoughts and I'm really glad I'm not the only one striving for a better tool and willing to share ideas.
  18. Hi there, I'm not sure if anyone ever mentioned that, but I'd love to have an UX Persona in AD... In my view I'd imagine some extra tools like: being able to link Artboards across the project with maybe some usual screen transitions; export prototype project to HTML - great for review and feedback; a "repeat grid" kind of tool, like our fellow friends from Adobe did in Adobe XD; and a quick tool to see the designs in real time in small devices; I hope I'm not alone in this thought and some how you guys from Affinity can able to work towards this idea.

    UX Persona

    I do know that... And maybe that is happening because there's a great market out there and they are trying to turn their product the next standard application for UX... However, I still have a feeling that Affinity tools will have a better approach based in everything they have done so far.
  20. You could also move the intire Artboard to the Assets panel and then export the Assets to the cloud. The whole team can now import the asset and use it in their projects easily...
  21. Hi Guys, I've found about AD couple days ago and I am very impressed with my current experience. However I miss some key features that are keeping me from using it in a real world. One of them is the hability to copy property from another object... Let's say I have a shape with a gradient, and a specific border color and weight and I want to replicate its characteristic to another shape. Or maybe copy a font type from another text. I could not find a eyedrop like we on Illustrator or CorelDraw or I just missed it? Anyways, as a graphic designer for almost 20 years now... this is the most promissing software I have seen in a long time... I really hope Serif keep the good working and make an App as good as the giant Adobe and Corel. Reminous
  22. In my case, I create the document that suits my needs, let's say a Postcard 6x4in, CMYK, 300 DPI with placement text, logo and address in place... When I'm done, I drag the artwork into a new Asset Group in Assets panel... Next time I need it, I simply create a new document and drag it back from the Assets panel into my document. Another thing I do is save the Assets to the cloud to make it available in my other machines if needed. Not sure if it helps, but it's my best solution for now since I do repeat same kind of document setting for some specific clients such as business cards, flyers, post cards, posters, etc. Reminous
