  1. Just starting out with Affinity and im loving it. One things bothers me though, can't find a way to quickly click to drag multiple objects. Any tips please?
  2. Perspective was coming two years ago but apparently not yet. Any news on this feature?
  3. When distributing a set of objects horizontally, I would expect them to have the same space between each object, instead this is what im getting: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kukgadjm6dq7458/Screenshot%202016-03-30%2019.01.00.png?dl=0
  4. Got it. Thanks for all the help. Cheers.
  5. If you say so I believe you. They weren't on my setup and im pretty sure I haven't removed them. Thank you for your input.
  6. No, I haven't. I've added a few buttons when I first bought the app and I don't want to have to rebuild that.
  7. I think I now the difference between the two apps: According to the Customize Toolbar dialog the default set doesn't include those options: https://www.dropbox.com/s/sqrdeafdh1bdfmg/Screenshot%202016-03-31%2012.24.32.png?dl=0
  8. Ah ok, I had to add the buttons for "Space Horizontally" to achieve the correct alignment. This is not as obvious as it should be, considering that when I have the objects selected the option to "Space Horizontally" doesn't appear anywhere (menu or toolbars) unless we add that buttons to the toolbar. Thanks.
  9. Hi, Yes, each icon and its corresponding legend are inside a layer group. I have seen this problem before but didn't reported because I imagined it would be something being worked on. A different test in a new file with the same elements still gives same results. https://www.dropbox.com/s/v1jps2sjxf67o70/Screenshot%202016-03-30%2019.35.45.png?dl=0 You can download that file here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/29267/alignment%20test.afdesign
  10. Hi, One thing I really miss in Affinity Photo (and Designer) is the ability to resize objects using keyboard only. Is there any way to achieve this? Regards.
  11. That what I was afraid of. Seems like an obvious thing to have included in the app, and of the many reasons I love Sketch to be honest. Hopefully something you'll consider adding in the future too. Thanks.
  12. Hi, It used to be possible to copy/paste into Sketch, keeping the objects as vector. Now it just renders the pasted object as bitmap. Did something changed in Affinity or should I report it to the Sketch team? Thanks.

    Pantone colours

    Is there any ETA for Pantone Colors?
  14. Hi meb, ok, cool. I wasn't aware this is a known issue. Will look for different approach then.
  15. Hi, Im trying to design a symbol mimicking a hand made path. For this i've created a large stroke, which I then convert with "Expand Stroke". The goal was the do use the node tool to modify the resulting shape, making the stroke variable widths, as it was hand written. Problem with this is that the "Expand Stroke" results in way too many points, even with a smooth path to begin with. The issue can be seen here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zjko4wl5uduav23/Screenshot%202015-07-19%2011.46.51.png?dl=0 Is there any way I can avoid or improve this so that I have drastically less points so that altering the expanded stroke becomes a viable option?
  16. I've complained about this before and was told this was somewhat normal because it was mimicking the paper color. Well, in my machine at least I don't think it's producing the expected results, and im hoping this screenshot illustrates the problem: https://www.dropbox.com/s/f82f3d3q4ceisyo/Screenshot%202014-11-05%2007.30.02.png?dl=0 Affinity document at the left, finder at the right. The lighter area in the AD document is supposed to be white.

    CMYK colours are quite off

    I get that, but I have the actually flyer impressed right beside my screen and it's way brighter on paper. On screen way, way "yellowish". Im on a Cinema Display 27" btw.
  18. Im having a few issues exporting to PDF. When opening the files on Preview or Illustrator i've noticed some of the shapes were converted to bitmap. The affected file is attached.

    Export to PDF rasterizes vectors

    Thanks. Hoping to see this coming soon, right now my workflow is quite broken because of this.

    Export to PDF rasterizes vectors

    I've also noticed that if the affected layer group has "Passthrough" as the selected blending mode, then the pdf is correctly exported, keeping everything as vector.
  21. The app is missing and/or would benefit with shortcuts for things like: Resize objects Enabling text input when pressing Enter with a text layer selected Hide/Unhide layers Navigate through the layers panel Simple things but huge time savers. When you get proficient with shortcuts like this, you'll never go back. Thanks.
  22. When pasting objects, they should be placed within the visible area of the document. Thanks.
  23. Im having a few issues exporting PDFs for online catalogues. In Illustrator I used to have the option to downsample the bitmaps, therefore reducing the size of the output file. Affinity doesn't seem to have anything equivalent. Also tried to open the exported PDF in Illustrator a export it again from there but strangely that made no difference. Are you planning any option for export optimisation?
  24. Ops, sorry about the confusion. I'll wait for the feedback from the devs then. Tks.
  25. Sorry to ask, but would you mind pointing this question to one of your colleagues? Thanks.
