  1. I agree with Walt on this, however... on a very very rare occasion I have seen footnotes spill over to the next facing page where at the bottom of the first page of the two it was stated that the footnotes continued on that next facing page. I've never seen footnotes pushed back to the preceding page or having to turn a page to continue with the footnotes. In case it is not possible to continue on the next facing page then the body text will have to be redistributed to make the footnotes fit. Otherwise endnotes should be used in my opinion.
  2. To be clear, I want both footnotes and endnotes, but for the kind of publications I do footnotes can have a negative impact on lay-out because of the space they may occupy on the page depending on number and length of the footnotes, so endotes are more convenient in that case. In case only footnotes or only endotes can be implemented upon release, then I would prefer endnotes to be implemented first. Others may prefer footnotes to be implemented first in that case, so maybe a poll might be useful in that case. Though it would make sense to implement them both when they are made available, but you never know how things may go.
  3. Ditto here, we got a few years of updates (sometimes big updates) without having to pay additional money, there are few commercial companies who do this at this price level.
  4. @Ren De nice work, though I wouldn't hang the second one on my wall. Don't want to scare the visitors. ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. The Wendigo is a kind of boogieman/evil spirit creature of the native American/FirstNations people. Other cultures have their own versions of this kind of creature as well, sometimes cannibalistic, sometimes not. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wendigo
  6. +1 for non-printable (global) layers too I may not need them in each publication, but when I need them they're really needed. An alternative might be to create a draft layer type, Clip Studio Paint has this and it will never be exported when publishing to several file format (in this case image formats like TIFF, JPEG etc.). The intent for this layer is to keep draft sketches, lines, mockups etc. visible but never publish them. Basically this is the same as setting a global layer to non-printable but it does this automatically because of its layer type.
  7. And those who expected it will be included in V2 would then pay half if it is not included? ๐Ÿ˜‰ If only one of them could be included I hope it will be endnotes because for me they're a bit more convenient lay-out wise than footnotes.
  8. There was mention of an article earlier in this thread and/or another thread about how Affinity (Designer) was making inroads into the AEC world, in that article it was said that dwg/dxf import was being tested and that V2 is supposed to come out later this year. Maybe it is better to replace supposed with assumed but I'd be a bit surprised if V2 would not come out this year given that V1 has been released some 5 years ago and new releases/beta versions are really slow to appear at the moment which makes me think they are focusing on getting V2 ready for release.
  9. For the video tutorials on Vimeo and Youtube that is usually not the case. The Affinity workbooks for Designer, Photo and Publisher do have resources. The Affinityrevolution website has usually resources as well for their video tutorials but not for all I think because for some they're not really necessary.
  10. Another +1 for this with the addition that the layers panels should show whether the image is linked or not, as this is something I would like to be able to see in conjunction with this feature.
  11. For those coming late to the footnote/endnote discussion "party"... a workaround for footnotes mentioned many pages ago (no it is not about starting a fairytale๐Ÿ˜‰) is to create endnotes by using a text editor to create endnotes and then import/paste them into Publisher. I don't need footnotes/endnotes a lot but when I need it I really do need it so hopefully it will be included in the upcoming V2 release that is supposed to be (again hopefully) coming out later this year.
  12. This is the part that implies the information of inclusion of support for dwg/dxf import and it being tested is coming from Serif or at least someone working with Serif on this: "Serif acknowledges that it has done well in AEC over the last few years, gaining traction in many well-known practices and this has been achieved with no focussed marketing. Realising this trend in AEC adoption has led to the development team holding sessions with practices to get their feedback on features and enhancements to their core capabilities. The inclusion of support for DWG / DXF has come from that engagement and import / export is currently under test."
  13. Can we believe it for at least 99.99% ? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I do realise that articles may not provide the full details and are often a condensed/summarized version of the actual interview but usually the interviewed person/company gets an opportunity to check and correct things that are flat out incorrect or shouldn't be mentioned at all. That it is in the article is at least an indication that Serif may be seriously looking at/considering implementing dwg/dxf import/export . That is by itself already an improvement. The one disadvantage with Designer for me was/is that it is too much oriented at creative arts and too little attention for those in e.g. "technical" illustrations in the sense that some useful features (including dwg/dxf import) for the latter group are missing. Hopefully there will be more of a balance in future versions. As it is now I still have to keep other software for one feature or the other that Designer does not (yet) have.
  14. According to this article https://aecmag.com/technology/serif-affinity-for-aec-firms/ Serif is testing import/export for inclusion in a future version. It also mentions that V2 is scheduled to be released this year, so it could be that dwg/dxf import/export will be included in V2 at some point. (Hopefully when it V2 comes out or soon after that, though Serif will not mention/commit to a timeline as it depends on how well testing if the import/export is going)
  15. Rhino can also create 2D drawings, it is not uncommon to create a 3D model in Rhino and also do the related 2D (construction etc.) drawings in Rhino as well. There are also people who do common 2D work in Rhino as well because they don't want to spend money on an additional CAD program like AutoCAD (LT) for 2D only work. I assume @Intuos5 was referring to being able to import those 2D drawings in Affinity Designer. In that case it might be easier to request the sender to provide DXF files of the 2D part of the Rhino file.
