    evtonic3 got a reaction from wtrmlnjuc in Enable Transform Origin   
    Would like to see the ability to manually select where the "Enable Transform Origin" can be placed with a single click plus a modifier key like ALT like Illustrator does. It's such a "drag" (get it? --drag lol) to grab it always from the center and then drag way over to the place I'd like to quickly place it.

    Anyone experienced this? I had just loaded several assets in Designer, then I had a freeze on the app which I had to force quit it, and then my assets were gone after that.

    Would like to be able to export/save my symbols and store them in a user category, like with brushes, we can create our own category (library) and add to them and it would live in the app.

    evtonic3 reacted to Murfee in Follow path with Symbol   
    Hi @evtonic3, I haven’t tried with symbols but have used shapes along a path. Draw the path, copy the shape, use the artistic text tool to activate the text on a path but don’t type anything, just paste and the shape will appear, keep pasting until the path is filled to the end. You might need to experiment with sizing and spacing. Not as elegant as a proper symbols or shapes on a path tool but might help you achieve what you need until a proper tool is developed.

    Let's hope the pattern making capabilities are at the forefront for the devs this coming year. I hate to admit that the AI for iPad has some nifty ways of making them and also a very intuitive radial repeat function.

    evtonic3 reacted to ReVerthex in Enhanced brush settings for Develop persona   
    Can there be brush settings available for the overlay brush in the develop persona? I find it difficult to mask accurately with the current limited settings available, the edge aware option is pretty good for mouse work but when I use my wacom I find the lack of pressure related options limiting, like brush size or opacity, etc.

    Status: Beta
    Purpose: Features, Improvements, Fixes
    Requirements: Purchased Affinity Photo
    Mac App Store: Not submitted
    Download ZIP: Download
    Auto-update: Available.
     
    Hello,
    We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the second beta of Affinity Photo 1.8 for macOS.
    Photo 1.8 is a significant change to the currently shipping 1.7 version, so, as ever, I would strongly urge users to avoid the 1.8 beta for critical work. This is a pre-release build of 1.8 - we will release more builds before 1.8 ships. Things will be broken in this build - please use it to explore the new features and not for real work.
    If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, it’s worth noting that the beta will install as a separate app - alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry.
    It’s also worth noting that we aren’t done yet - we are still working through reported bugs from previous releases and hope to fix as many as possible before the final release of 1.8. 
    With all that said, we hope that you will enjoy the new capabilities introduced in this release and we look forward to any and all feedback you give to us.
    Many thanks (as always),
    Affinity Photo Team

    Hi @evtonic3,
    I think you can achieve this by switching to the Node Tool (A) and click on the icon 'Reverse curve', see screenshot.

    Hi,
    We were surprised and delighted that Publisher was awarded Apple's macOS App of the Year last week, and of course, this is where it really all happens, so we would like to thank you once again for all of your feedback and input. We would not have made it so far and so fast without you.
    That said, it's pretty much business as usual, and we are pleased to announce that a new Customer Beta of Affinity Publisher (1.8.0.523) is now available as a download from the link above. Barring catastrophe this will probably be our last update this year.
    As this is a 'Stability and General Testing' beta it is considered to be not suitable for production use. This means that you should not attempt to use it for commercial purposes or for any other activity where you may be adversely affected by the application failing, including the total loss of any documents. 
    We hope you enjoy the beta, and as always, if you've got any problems installing or running up, please don't hesitate to post in this thread. 
    Any problems actually using this version please make a new topic in this forum and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Please feel free to leave general suggestions and comments in the Discussion Forum. 
    Once again, many thanks for your continued feedback, and best wishes for the Holiday Season and the New Year.

    StudioLink
    This build of Affinity Publisher, 1.8.0 Beta, requires 1.8.0 Beta builds of Photo and Designer for StudioLink to function. We hope to make these available soon.

    New Features and Major Improvements
    Preflight
    We have introduced a preflight check feature which can be used to ensure that your document exports or prints as intended. The preflight check runs as a background process, and can be run on on demand, prior to output, or 'live' on a continual basis. We currently have a number of separate tests with more planned for inclusion in the final 1.8 and in the future.
    Preflight is configured via the 'Preflight' panel, which supports profiles to specify which tests should be run if you desire. An indicator is provided on the status bar for immediate feedback on the process. Note we have requested updated icons as we are aware that colour alone is not a good way to represent the different statuses.
    Please feel free to suggest additional tests - it's likely that many will already be under consideration but please don't let that deter you.

    Panel is now resizable and modeless.

    It would be nice to delete multiple swatches at once by shift-clicking them and pressing delete. Right now I have to do it one by one and then be asked if I want to really delete the swatch. This is way too tedious.

    We have to add the Pantone® colours to the installer (and technically have our implementation re-approved by Pantone® ). I understand these new colours will be in beta builds soon and therefore released in due course.
     
    (I expect once they are in the beta you can manually move them to your 1.7.3 release location (shhhh) not tried it though)
