  1. Considering their low price compared to Adobe, I would not object to pay again for a version 2.0, even it its features where initially planned to be included in 1.x.
  2. Hey, I'm just looking into this conversation, and I haven't quite read through all 7 pages, so this question might have been addressed before, but there is something I don't understand. 'Global layers' seem to suggest a set of overarching layers that are higher in the hierarchy than regular layers. As I understand, this would not match with the use of layers in the other apps which is not nested. On the other hand a 'linked layer' (as exists in Photo) makes more sense to me. It would exist at the same level of regular layers but its behaviour would be linked across pages. It could be implemented starting from the existing 'linked layer' from Photo and adapt its behaviour to workflows typically used in lay-outing (eg. auto-create all linked layers in all new pages, of course without any objects). This seems simpler, so am I missing something? PS: For those who think long, multi-language documents don't exist in a single layout: I am now working on an atlas of 400-500 pages (in InDesign). All legends, captions and introductory texts are indeed in two languages. This use case is definitely not hypothetical in Belgium.
  3. Development seems to have slowed in the last few months. Is this a Christmas break or is 2.0 coming?
  4. It might be more useful to hide the dartboards from the layer panel. So you would just zoom out and visually select the artboard. The layer panel would only show those on the selected artboard and hide all other artboard layers. I currently find it needlessly clogged to see all artboards layers even though I am not working in them.
  5. Hey, any progress on the "minimise space" option? It would be very useful for archiving older large files in an efficient way...
  6. Hey MEB. Any luck on the file? Or if you are just able to open it, on just generating a pdf for me? Thanks!
  7. Is there any way to restore the broken file? I am about to lose many hours of work...
  8. I have just installed the latest beta and the same problem occurs here...
  9. Hey Affinity team, I have a publisher file that keeps on crashing. Is my work lost? What can I do? Publisher crashes directly after opening the file. Can I send the file somewhere? I hope you can help me out here!
  10. I agree it should be set to all pages by default. I also needed some time to figure this out and i find it counter-intuitive: standard one expexts a page-per-page print. (And anyway, wouldn't booklet printing also require the pages to be in a different order?)
  11. @achilles177 I really like the clean style. I'm curious to see if you have done more work in AD since 2016?
  12. The video's look great! Looking forward to the surely imminent 1.7 beta...
  13. Or linked markdown .txt files that update automatically
  14. Thanks @MickRose but this was not what I meant (unless I misunderstood you). I have documents with multiple artboards set up. Quite often I want to continue with one of those in a separate file. I'd like to select the artboard and "create a new document from artboard". This way both the content and the page setup would be copied to a new document. It think it could be useful and could fit in neatly under the exisiting option "new from clipboard" (with the added functionality of not only copying the content but also the page setup).
  15. Hey, is it possible to set up a non-printing text styles for adding notes that don't print? Or his there an other way to add notes that don't print or can easily be turned off across multiple pages?
  16. Hey, I seem to remember an option to lock guides, but somehow I can't find it anywhere?
  17. Hey, I think it could be useful to have an option to "create new document from selected art-board(s)". This would be a useful addition to the "New from Clipboard". I have had many situations where I want to create a new document from one or two of my existing art-boards. I can duplicate the file and then delete the art-boards don't need. Or I can create a new document and copy-paste. But this option would be more straightforward.
