  1. Are there any updates on this issue? I have run into the same problem with figures created in current Matplotlib versions. SVGs are displayed fine in all other software I tested (Mac Finder Preview, Firefox, Safari. Ubuntu Inkscape, ImageViewer), but are mangled in Affinity Designer 1.10.5 (and in Affinity Publisher too). Edit: I didn't realize the original post was in a Windows-bug section. I should have looked for the MacOS bug section instead before posting. Anyways, this problem seems to be OS-independent.
  2. I like how one can change the contour radius, and apply it, using the Touch Bar on my MacBook Pro. I rarely use the Touch Bar, but having the slider right there under the screen is actually very useful for this purpose.
  3. This is great! I just downloaded the beta version (thanks for the link!) and tried it out. Works well in my quick tests. This will be really nice to have...
  4. Any news on this feature? For me, the lack of an easy path offset tool has become the single-most annoyance about Affinity Designer. I'm currently planning a design that needs many offset paths, and the workaround using stroke thickness is just too cumbersome. Guess I'll have to start the basic drawing in Inkscape on my Linux machine, which does have this capability. (Or go back to Illustrator for a few months. I'd rather not, though.) Other than that, I really love using Designer on my Mac. And the iPad version is pretty nifty too! But I've been coming back to this old thread way too many times... and it's a bit cruel to get our hopes up with that awesome demo of just such a tool on twitter a while back
  5. I just came here to look for this feature myself. Great to hear it will be in version 1.7! That's one of the few things I"m still missing after my transition from Illustrator. Thanks!
  6. I agree, it's not the end of the world. Just a minor nuisance, especially when I want to quickly duplicate grouped objects. When click-dragging on an unselected group of objects while pressing CMD, AffinityDesigner will only duplicate the selected sub-object of that group (and leave it grouped within its parent), instead of moving and copying the whole group. So I need to make sure I select the group first, and then duplicate it. Just a few seconds lost, but I just really liked how this worked in Illustrator.
  7. I agree with aandy above. I too would love to be able to start dragging an object, and then midway decide whether I want to deposit a copy (if command or option is pressed) at the destination or just move it (key not pressed). That would speed up my workflow immensely, as I can't tell you how often I press the key too late and only move the object instead of copying it. REALLY like your software, though!
  8. Awesome! I just came to this forum to ask how to center text vertically in a text box in Affinity Designer. I just updated to 1.6 and this feature is now present. Thanks for your hard work!
