  1. Has anyone else had mouse issues with the latest versions of Affinity Designer and Publisher? I've attached a screenshot. Basically I can't move panels because I get a double "resize" arrow instead of a normal arrow. Essentailly I can resize the panel all day lng but can't move it. I've tried all kinds of key combinations, I've checked my mouse sttings, I've checked the preferences, I've even tried witchcraft and casting spells NOTHING works. Of course I should just try to reboot...that always seems to be magic for Windows. 🙄 Oddly, this behavior only happens in Publisher and De
  2. Ahh, I see. No harm, no foul. Either way a simple reset got it working again. Thanks for the help
  3. Garry, I'm not sure what to tell you about the download, I simply went to store.serif.com, logged into my account and went to the "Downloads and Product Keys" under the "Your Account" icon in the top right. From there I scrolled down until I found designer and it was listed as 1.7.3. So I downloaded and installed it and it was version I'd give you more details if I could but that's really all there was to it. BTW I noticed the layer was locked and in the video it is indeed locked, however, even when I unlocked the layer nothing changed. So locked or unlocked it still didn'
  4. doing CTRL while opening did the trick. It reset whatever the issue was. Thank you!
  5. This was happening on version 1.7.2 as well. I thought going to 1.7.3 might resolve the issue but it had no affect. The version is and it gave no indication when downloading it from my control panel that it was a beta version.
  6. Recently I've been having trouble with the cropping tool in Designer. It was working very well before but now it's not working at all. I"ll open an image file that I need to crop, select the crop tool, go to the blue bar at the top-middle and try to drag down. But I no longer get the up-down arrow key and in the rare occasion that I do, it doesn't actually drag down. It also fails to drag from any corner or draw a new rectangle. In a possibly related issue, the middle mouse button pan no longer works. It doesn't even give me the grab hand. And, believe it or not, even using the space
  7. Ahh...I see exactly what your saying now. I think what's happening is the "feel" of selecting for me. In Adobe I can move about freely between pixels why selecting but when I catually close the selection loop it does indeed jump to the nearest pixel edge. I simply wasn't noticing that because I'm generally not zoomed in that far when I close the selection. Affinity's lasso just jumps to the nearest pixel edge no matter what. I'm fine with that, now that I know exactly what's happening. Thank you!
  8. I cannot figure out how to COMPLETELY turn snapping of for the Polygonal Lasso tool. It's difficult to describe so I've included images. Basically, if I turn all snapping off in Photoshop I can Lasso select between pixels which is truly free selecting. When I try this in Affinity Photo it snaps by pixel, there is no "between the pixels". Please refer to the images to see what I'm trying to say. I need Affinity to stop snapping to pixels and let me select the way Photoshop does.
  9. Yes, PLEASE add import support for DWG and DXF.
  10. Ahh. It's kinda weird the way that works. The "Forced Pixel Alignment" box was unchecked but the "Move by whole pixels" under that was checked but greyed out. I guess I thought if the "Force Pixel Alignment" was unchecked and the "Move by whole pixels" was greyed out that it was off. I had to turn on the pixel alignment, uncheck the move by whole pixel, and then turn the pixel alignment back off. Strange the way that works but it fixed it. thanks!
  11. Whenever I use the polygonal selection tool, it always snaps one complete pixel. I have all of the snapping tools turned off but it still snaps like this. Is there anyway to completely turn off the snapping while selecting something with the polygonal selection tool?
  12. Actually, it is possible. Select your item(s) and click on the "artboard" tool. Above the canvas area in the "size" drop-down, change that to selection and then click the "insert artboard" button. This compresses the artboard around your selection.
  13. They look okay on my 27" LG 4k monitor. If you want to see BAD....look at Illustrator and Photoshop on a 4K monitor....it's unbearable at native resolution. Try scaling to 150% or so, seems to work good for me around there.
  14. I would love to see "Affinity Web" as well. If they did that, I could be rid of Adobe once and for all! PLEASE make this! I'm not a programmer and I have no idea what it takes to develop software but I think they could probably develop it off the Affinity Publisher format once htat's finished. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that's where Adobe got Muse, off the InDesign platform.
