  1. Thanks, Dave Harris! Great to know these tips
  2. Hi Uncle808us, I'm sorry to have missed your message earlier -- and yes, you are correct. That is the tool in question. When you hover your stylus pen or mouse over the button, after a second a window pops up that announces, "Reverse Text Path" to indicate title of the tool. Cheers :-)
  3. Hi Bri-Toon, I believe you are correct and it does flip the text. I dragged the red triangle to slide the text down to the bottom. This is useful for a CD design job, with legal type encircling the perimeter.
  4. Hi @MriKay, I can help! Just figured it out! I think I know exactly what you are looking for -- how to INVERT the text, to flip it to appear on the inside. I spent half an hour trying to figure this out! Gah! Then, I noticed this little button at the top of the Affinity Designer window ... and I thought, What the hell is that for? Hmm! I clicked it, with my circle and text selected, and VOILA! Exactly what I was looking for! Try this: at the top of the Affinity Designer window, in the area of Text Tools, click on the "Reverse Text Path" tool. It's a little nearly-miss-it curvy line with node ends, between the Baseline selector area and the Character button. Here are my screen shots showing before and after! Cheers k
  5. Ok, thanks @R C-R. In Illustrator, you just click to update the linked image after conducting some Photoshop tweaks. In other words, if you work on an image outside of Ai in Ps to tweak it, and then return to Ai, it can be set in preferences to automatically update. It's handy and efficient. I think I'm getting that with AD, you open the file in AP FROM AD, in order to tweak it; but I'm confused as to how to single out a placed image that is layered in AD. It seems to come into AP as one flat image. I know I've got a learning curve to relearn tools and unique methods. I do appreciate not having to do Command-7 or Command-8 anymore to mask; masks are automatic in child layers. Interesting!
  6. Hello, I've made some edits to an image in Affinity Photo, and wish to update the link in Affinity Designer. I've searched through the AD "Help" section, but cannot seem to find a way to do this. Can anyone point me in the direction of where to find an "update link" type button? Thanks!

    Hide Edges - seeking feature

    Ok, thanks @Aammppaa and @dutchshader! It's helpful in the meantime for a quick judgment. Cheers
  8. Agreed! I relied heavily on Command-H in Ai. Having the choice of seeing the vector nodes and bounding boxes assist in making clean, decisive judgments about optical composition while working on the screen. I am encouraged by the great strides Serif is making! Thanks for working hard to advance this excellent software. Down to the details, but the details are important.
  9. Hello, I'm seeking a Hide Edges feature to toggle on and off. I relied heavily on this function in Illustrator, with the keyboard shortcut Command-H. It was immensely helpful to not have to always see handles or selected edges highlighted, distracting me from making decisions. Can you tell me how to find this feature, and if it is not in AD, please will you consider adding it in the future? Many thanks for a great program!
