  1. I want to follow up here because I have found that, very often, the "double click outside text area" doesn't work as expected. So I would like to report it as a bug.
  2. Marquee select for artboards is my #1 feature request. Let me share my experience. I work on an app with another designer. She's a hard worker. If I told her to run a marathon, she'd say "I'm on it!" That's the kind of work ethic she has. Yet if I tell her to rearrange some artboards in Affinity Designer, she audibly groans. I think it's less about the time it takes and more about the delta between how long it takes and how long it ought to take. Disclosure: Feature request ≠ Customer dissatisfaction. Thanks for all your efforts on this tool. It's a lynchpin to our organization.
  3. Definitely excited about the blur-beneath feature. Would be a time-saver!
  4. I see. That's unfortunate. However, would it not be possible for the development team to handle the error a bit more gracefully? For example, run a check for this issue before reaching the point where the file must forcibly close? This way, the user could at least copy their work to another file…
  5. How can I access the auto-save? I appear to have to have lost the file wholesale. I do save the files directly to Dropbox for collaboration. It seems the other user edited the file while I was still working in it. When I saved, this happened… Usually, when this situation occurs, Dropbox saves a conflicted copy. This time, no.
  6. Just lost hours of work to this bug. Why can't it be saved as another file? Why do we have to just lose our work? Very disappointing.
  7. How to Reproduce: Create several dummy shapes Color the shapes and create swatches for some of those colors With the Swatches panel open, alternately select the shapes If the shape's fill/stroke color matches a swatch, the respective swatch appears selected in the Swatches Panel (this is good) If the shape's fill/stroke color doesn't match a swatch, the last swatch still appears selected (this is bad) How to Solve: When an object's fill/stroke color doesn't match a swatch, none of the swatches should appear selected
  8. I want to call attention to this problem again. Some of my documents have about a zillion text styles due to copying text between files…
  9. I'm referring to the moment of conversion. If I have a piece of Frame Text and convert it to Artistic Text, my intent is to output text that looks like what I had but which will now resize with its parent going forward.
  10. Would be useful for me as well because I don't always correctly anticipate whether I'll want some text to resize with its parent or not. Note: When converting from Frame Text to Artistic Text, Artistic Text should not stretch to fill the Frame. Instead, the converted text should be visually the same and the Transform values reset.
  11. Prior to 1.6, it was possible (at least on the Mac) to start dragging an element with the trackpad and then pan around the workspace. The AFDesigner 1.6 release notes included "Improved pan/zoom performance". Could that be the culprit? Please consider reinstating the ability to drag and pan. Thank you!
  12. For UI design, I configure reusable components, which often involves toggling layer checkboxes. I've noticed that my Mac's scroll bars frequently get in the way. So, instead of toggling a box, I fly up or down the list because I've clicked a new position on the scroll bar. I have changed my system preferences to always show scrollbars, which fixes the problem. But optimally, the scrollbar in the Layers panel would be permanently shown regardless system preferences, so that the checkboxes don't overlap.
  13. Genius. Thanks for letting me know. (Personally I'd still prefer if it only took one click outside the text area.)
  14. I assumed Assets could not be reordered. Happy to be wrong. Why the ⌥ modifier key, though?
