  1. Hi Dave, Checking "Allow advanced features" did "solved" the issue, but I never had this need before. This is curious, either the export behaviour has changed, either I never exported gradient alpha before (would be surprising), either I never paid attention till then (oO) I'll pay much more attention now. Question, how did you checked back your PDF to assume that nothing was rasterised if "the transparency group is rasterised during the import" ?
  2. Hi Sean, sorry to bump and push on this, but everything basic I'm exporting is still rendered as image (see above explanations). This is a big issue for me.
  3. Let me correct this statement for you: “I too million this request” Reading it would “unlikely” be “in the 1.x cycle” made me quite sad.
  4. Hi @carl123, I've done 95% of this yesterday, but your italic statement right after point 5 made me understand. The fact some slices are not resized is because when you drag the small slices, the big one is still selected. If you select only the small slices (and you're right, their position / size must be the same), then all of them will resize together. So this is a solution, but… sadly, it only applies on this example, were all layers are the same. In my real need, all of them are different (I should have randomised all my discs sizes, sorry). Anyway, this points out the simple feature that would solve it all: The transform panel should not be greyed out at the moment a multiple slice selection is done. Thus we could use it. Thanks for your test, now it's time for the Affinity Team to fix this
  5. Yes it is, as I've made/shown on my second artboard of the last attached document. But I've done that all manually, which is the precise point I want to avoid.
  6. No it's not ^^ As said, I've to export all slices —at canvas size—, each containing it's own layer content. Look closely to the screenshot I've initially posted. All slices are stacked on each other. This is what I mean --> see attached file SlicesTransform.afdesign
  7. Sorry @carl123 but this is absolutely not what I'm talking about Perhaps I miss expressed myself, if so, sorry for my English. I'm talking about sizing the slice, not it's content (not the exported element).
  8. Hi folks, For a long time, I'm struggling with a task that should have been straight forward and I'm loosing a lot of time on each project. I often need to export a great amont of slices (can be 50, 100…). Those slices are initially made from layers (thus linked to them, which is essential in my workflow). But I need all slices to be the size of the artboard. With Affinity, I cannot select all my slices, go to the transform panel and type in x0, y0, w1200, h1200 (see attached example) at once. I've to do this manually for everything single slice !!! The transform panel is grey out at the moment a multiple slice selection is done, which is immensely sad Would be very nice to allow such a behaviour. Thanks in advance. SlicesTransform.afdesign
  9. My mistake, it works @R C-R. Thank you. I prefer this (pressing twice an arrow keep) as workaround.
  10. Hi Folks, @Pšenda thanks for the suggestion, but I will not touch my screen tolerance settings, which is good as default for my needs. Again, the point is not having to switch settings all the time for simple tasks. @R C-R Sadly, it's not doing the trick. lines are still snapping to the grid.
  11. Not true in many cases where for no "apparent" reason (could be an adjacent snap), the path jumps by 1px, sometimes by 0.5px, etc. Designing UI icons etc, is not only about straight line, sometimes, it's a more complex shape which still needs one of it's base to perfectly fit on the pixel grid. For this reason, a keyboard combination could force a 0.5px step behaviour whatever we do (move, transformation, etc.), disregarding any snap option. Edit: But in the end, a simple checkbox "Allow half pixel snapping" on the grid setting could solve all of this, without having to set end an heavy looking grid (spacing 10px, division 20px is heavy) Edit bis: setting a grid with spacing 10px, division 20px, is even not working… I still have unwanted 1px jumps because of some snaps (which by the way I need for many other reasons during the creation). Having the switch snap settings every single time depending the editing you do cannot be the right answer
  12. I see nothing has evolved on this point (both AD & AP) I decided to switch to Sketch for my next UI projects. I dropped it when AD have been released, but I've to admit Affinity isn't matching (at all) in this domain (yes I know, Sketch has become immensely specialised on it). But still, both app are sharing a lot. Not speaking about symbols (which by opposition are crazy reliables on Sketch), this "half pixel" thingy when doing UI design is a pain in Affinity At least, Affinity Team, provide us with a shortcut to move an item by +-0.5px In Sketch, moving a line seating on the grid will instantly make it jump to the closest half pixel, thus producing a perfect 1px non antialiased line.
