  1. The update notification as modal blocking dialog is really annoying. I can't find an option in the preferences about update notifications. (1.7.1.404) Why not just change that? Just show a subtle notification to indicate that an update is available. And / or do this only once a day or week. I want a notification about updates. But not as dialog on every application start. In my case I updated the application and one or two days later, another update available. It interrupts the workflow. - Please change this.
  2. "Make item visible in export" should still displayed in view. There is another eye icon for the view. "make item visible". The left icon "Make item visible in export" should only be handled for the export and not for the view. The current behavior is: When I disable it, the item is also invisible in view (export persona). This is nonsense. Because the right button "Make item visible" is for the view. When I disable "item visible in export" the item should still visible in the view. Only for the export it should be invisible. If I want to hide it in the view, I use the right eye button "make item visible". Use case: I want to see my helper items (e.g. a grid or background to make overlaying items more visible for me.) I think this is an expected behavior. Do not hide it from view if only the visible-for-export is disabled. - Maybe a third button or another global button will help to toggle export hidden items. Affinity Designer 1.7.1.404 Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.
  3. Affinity Desginer 1.7.1.404 removes the groups of an imported SVG file. If a group only contains one child, it ungoups it. This is an unexpected behavior. Because it manipulates the SVG data. Input (SVG Source, Snippet): <g id="One"> <rect x="0" y="0" width="300" height="100" fill="#f53d3d"/> <rect x="0" y="100" width="300" height="100" fill="#32db64"/> </g> <g id="Two"> <rect x="0" y="200" width="300" height="100" fill="#488aff"/> </g> Output (Imported, Snippet, interpreted as SVG) <g id="One"> <rect x="0" y="0" width="300" height="100" fill="#f53d3d"/> <rect x="0" y="100" width="300" height="100" fill="#32db64"/> </g> <rect id="Two" x="0" y="200" width="300" height="100" fill="#488aff"/> See attached files. I think this bug is not windows-only. Actual: Expected: demo.svg
  4. Currently it's only possble to erase white background color. (Filter > Color > Erase White Paper). But this should be a dialog to pick a color. Or does Affinity Photo already has a similar function (color to alpha)? (where?) Inspired by GIMP.
  5. Is it possible to toggle the contrast of the transparent checkered background? Currently I place a dark rectangle object behind the white icons. I expected a document setup property to set this background light or dark. This property should stored in the project file. Also a button in the toolbar to toggle it fast would be nice.

    Turn off smoothing

    Hi, thanks Yes, it's only for pixel graphics like png. Also great for the pixel view mode. To preview the result. ... For what is the setting "Resample" in "Document Setup"? Is this the option I mean? To resample pixel? Isn't? Anyway, I am looking forward to the feature.

    Turn off smoothing

    Ok, thanks. This is a nice workaround. But in my opinion not the best / correct solution. It's a bit "dirty". Because the profile curve may not perfect snapped to the value 0 and 1. If the value of one point is just 0.999999, you still have a bit smoothing (alpha). And this is only for single objects. Not for the whole project. Please don't misunderstand me. Blend gamma "solution" seems to work. But it's only a workaround. Fine, I'll test it with more complex scenes. But the suggestion for the resample option "none" still present.
  8. How to disable the smoothing (anti-aliasing) for the pixel rendering (view and png export). Currently it's only possible to choose a smoothing Resample like "Bilinear" or "Lanczos". This is great. I miss the option "None". Important for pixel art or gif images. (images without alpha channel). e.g. I want a pixel perfect circle. Is this already possible? If not, I want to suggest this feature. Just disable the resampling.

    Lagging and glitches

    Ok I have now the beta 1.6.0.85 of designer. And the issue is fixed for me. The performance is much better. What did you do? Now the program is usable. Please do the same with Affinity Photo!

    Lagging and glitches

    @Mark Ingram Just created a visible grid on a empty document. Because it's a visible thing to demonstrate in a video. But anyway. It does not matter if the document is empty or with content. In any cases the program extremely lags. I will try the beta now.

    Where can I download the latest beta version?

    Lagging and glitches

    @Mark Ingram No document is loaded. I just open the designer and creates a new empty document. e.g. profile: web with size: 480x272. It's difficult to show performance issues in a video. You have to control the input by your self. To recognize the lags. A example for scrolling. I press CTRL + Mouse Wheel. And the view is scrolling with a huge delay. And panning (move view with middle mouse button) has also lags. Same problem with object to draw. The whole program is lagging. It is impossible to work with this program on this computer (specs posted on topic post.)

    I think no one wants to hear the truth. Affinity Designer and Photo were a good idea. But unfortunately it failed in performance. I tried this software on different computes. And the performance really sucks on each one. Inkscape and Gimp are much better in these things. Why did I buy Designer and Photo? Because look modern and has features which I missing in free software. Like the curve-features for polygon. Round corners also if they combined by boolean function. That's pretty cool. Anyway, you (Serif) have to work hard on this software to improve the performance. Otherwise the software is a money and time wasting thing. Maybe you think: The business is doing well with these software. But I think it's because marketing and the look of this software. Also the features. But NOT the peformance. THIS is the thing you have to work on it.
  14. Hi there. I have just bought the affinity designer and photo. And unfortunately I see that the program is extremely slow, lagging and glitchy. What should I do? I cannot work with this until the performance is so terrible. -.- PC Specs: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (1703) GeForce GTX 745 (With the latest drivers: 06.10.2017, version: 23.21.13.8792) Intel Core i3-6100 3.70 GHz 16 GB RAM Affinity Designer Version 1.5.3.69 For more system informations, take a look to the dx diag file.
