  1. PixelPest — exactly, but for dynamic corners. The corner tool is amazing (although I have no idea why the 'c' shortcut from the beta was removed), but the set radius does not scale with the object. To ELI5 — if I draw a 100mm square, convert to curves, and add 20mm radius to a corner with the corner tool, then scale the square to 50mm, the corner remains at 20mm radius instead of scaling to 10mm as would be logical. Seems like a no-brainer to me, but hey ho...
  2. Is there any hack to show the bleed area on a document using artboards? I presume this is also on the to-do list for the update?
  3. Seems crazy not to have the search box everywhere a pantone selector panel is – it's next to useless without it.
  4. Bump. Constantly resetting values for corner radii after scaling the object. Current workflow is: - duplicate object - bake corners on duplicate - scale original and duplicate - match corner radii on the original to the duplicate - delete duplicate. Painful.
  5. Just tried AD 1.6 with Indesign CC – nope. Still need an old copy of illustrator messing up my system just for this. Arg.
  6. Thanks for the reply Carl. This'll work in principal, but it's not ideal – non-editable and only really practical for a few words. Hopefully it's a feature that'll be added soon.
  7. Thank for the reply, but the linked thread is not really applicable in my case – unless I want to skew each letter individually. Incidentally, this seems to be the way my old illustrator files are imported i.e. each letter separated and skewed by a different amount to preserve the effect. Not a practical way to replicate the effect in Designer from scratch though.
  8. Hi, I'm using Designer to add to some old work done in illustrator, but I've run into a limitation – I need to match some type on path, skewed vertically. Is there any way to achieve this in Designer? To expand the description a bit – in illustrator there is an option to skew the type on a path vertically (similar to option 'B' in the example attached). I'm looking for an equivalent option or a method to replicate this in Designer. Any ideas?
  9. Hi Chris, I originally posted this in feature requests/feedback. Mike replied that on windows the 'cut down' version of the swatches panel retained the settings of the main swatches panel (see the conversation in the original thread). I assumed this disparity between windows/mac was a bug.
  10. Seems that some swatch panels don't retain the settings of the main swatch panel (MacOS 10.13, Designer V1.5.5) i.e. the swatch panel in colour overlay in a layer effect doesn't display the search field (or list view) after it is enabled in the main swatch panel. See thread:
  11. WIll do. Thanks Mike.
  12. MacOS 10.13 Designer V1.5.5
  13. Hm, weird. Not for me?:
  14. In the main swatches panel, yes, but what about in other places? (as in my screenshot which is a colour overlay in a layer effect)
  15. Hi, I'm writing to suggest that a search box be shown anytime a pantone swatch picker is displayed. The picker is virtually useless without the ability to type a PMS number. Surprising that it's is not shown by default, and more surprising that it's sometimes not even available as an option. Would be a welcome addition. Thanks! Cleay.
