  1. Which would be the same place that I would chuck them if a woodchuck could chuck wood. SOOO HELPFUL! There's no "manual download" option offered. Meanwhile, the UI incorrectly shows that the entire category of items is installed. Obscurity FTW!
  2. I installed the free brushes and whatnot that come with the new versions of Photo and Designer, but I can't find where they went on the computer (Mac). Where is this stuff stored? I also found that "download all" doesn't work. If you expand each item, you'll find that numerous things weren't downloaded. If you click on the cryptic triangle on the right of one of them, it takes you to a Web page to manually download things.
  3. Two years later and still not fixed. To say "disappointing" would imply that we expected a better outcome...
  4. Three years later, and this common function is still not available. The logic to implement it obviously exists, since the paste-to-new-document workaround apparently does. Incredible.
  5. Yep. I consulted some. And they didn't answer that question.
  6. Why? The enclosed space is defined (and displayable by filling the object) regardless of drawing direction. If the filled area doesn't vary by direction, then neither should the result of subtracting it from another one. The order of operations on more than two overlapping objects doesn't seem ambiguous here, because of the layer hierarchy. Or is that not true? And why does Designer seem to be the only drawing application with this problem? Simply because it defaults to the least-sensible option, whereas others don't? Thanks for the hotkey suggestion.
  7. Why should the path direction matter? These shapes don't even cross themselves. The area contained by one should be subtracted from the other, period. If you take these two objects and fill them, their interior becomes colored, regardless of "direction." Thus they describe a region that can be subtracted from another. And indeed every other program appears to manage this as expected. Even if a shape's outline crosses itself, the user can fill it and see what the program considers its "interior." And that's what should be subtracted from another shape in this operation. Why are we messing with "directions?"
  8. Thanks for the responses! There is a thread about this in the regular questions forum; after finding that this appears to be a bug, I posted it here. Nice to hear that it might have been fixed. We'll see in the next release...
  9. This "rule" is opaque to the user. I didn't define it, and every other piece of software seems to be able to perform the operation as expected.
  10. Both Draw and Sound Forge, two of my favorite Windows apps, have had a few attempts at Mac versions over a long, long period. They were disastrous in both products' cases and quickly abandoned.
  11. Not surprised. I'm downloading the trial Mac version of Corel Draw right now. Their attempts at a Mac version have historically been rendered unusable by bugs, but we'll see about this 2020 one...
  12. Thanks. Hopefully Affinity can get this fixed. Pretty sure nobody's holding his breath at this point, though.
