  1. The UX of it is a bit of a pain in the ass imo @PÅ¡enda: Thank you so much for this, is this solution somewhere in the manual? It's so counter intuitive It works, but man it's silly
  2. But it doesn't work, even if I enable ""ADD NEW CURVE TO SELECTED CURVES OBJECT". The nodes don't become one, they are simply two nodes one of top of the other, and when I try to smooth it, I can't, because only one of the nodes gets smooth, the other doesn't. I'll upload a file later today, man this is so frustrating
  3. I wanna be able to continue where I left off As in draw starting from the last node of the shape, and continue from that node, so that the new lines I draw are part of the same shape.
  4. Hey guys, I am drawing a shape using the pen tool. I draw a few lines, then adjust them, then I wanna continue drawing the same shape, without creating a new shape, as in I wanna continue the initial shape, where I left off. So I enable the "ADD NEW CURVE TO SELECTED CURVES OBJECT" to continue the existing shape, and I am trying to make the last created node with the node I am about to create. While everything seems good at first glance, I realize that these nodes, which I want to be joined and become a single node, are actually two semi-independent nodes. How can I make the nodes become one, so I can smooth it and control it like one node instead of two? Doesn't seem very intuitive. Thanks, Chris
  5. I agree. While the UX of the app is really great, there are aspects that are not well thought out, and the colors is definitely the first on my list. Gradients too. I can't understand for example why we can't use the eye dropper tool with gradients, like select one of the gradient colors, then select the eye dropper, then click on the color we want. Doing that will change the gradient in a solid color, makes no sense whatsoever. I like the Adobe XD UX for colors, and even more, I like the colors UX of UXPin. Combining the hexadecimal code with the HUE type of box makes a lot more sense than combining the hex codes with rgb sliders, not sure how many UI/UX designers actually use that, personally I never did
  6. Hello, What would make Affinity a preferred app for developers as well would be the ability to export specs, like XD or Figma. Affinity is far better than both, and this little feature, which let's be serious is not too difficult to implement, would make Affinity a lot more popular among UI/UX designers and developers. Cheers, Chris

    Export to Adobe XD?

    that doesn't help much
  8. Hi, Any chance we'll see an option to export Affinity Designer files to Adobe XD? Thanks
  9. thanks v_kyr, didn't know that some attributes weren't supported.
  10. Hi guys, I'm using Affinity with Adobe XD, some clients refuse to work with Affinity, since no one knows what it is. I do convert some client to Affinity, but others dismiss it, so I have to either provide Photoshop, XD or Sketch files. XD is the fastest approach, because I can export the shapes to Photoshop and open them directly with XD, and I can export text to SVG and import it in XD. All cool, but the SVG text I export from Affinity loses all its meta, except for font. font size and color. Alignment is gone, character spacing is gone, line height (which is really important) is also missing. Is there a way to export text to SVG and keep all the meta intact? Thank you, Chris
  11. Thank you Mithferion Much appreciated
  12. Yeah the smaller rectangle makes a lot more sense. Why didn't I think of that? Still, a spread option would be a great benefit, no? Depending on the shape, this trick could not be bulletproof. Not to mention that it takes more time to create.
  13. You didn't use the drop shadow for that, right? You used a blur/size/color overlay? Also, how did you make the AD layout look like this?
