  1. +1 Yes, please make linking default and embedding an option. I think it is also better for the file size of the layout document to not embed images. And it's easier to edit images and just update these links in the document.
  2. I thought the same about that "pages" view to the left - and I'm using a standard big screen. It's nice that you can switch the pages display to a "small list" (similar to that in Indesign), but the panel is still wider than it needs to be.
  3. Ah nice, thank you both! That worked for me. Since that picture frame doesn't mean "linked" image then - how can I use linked images instead of first placing them and making them linked afterwards? It's not a big problem to link them afterwards, I'd just like to know if there's another way to do it besides the placing (with or without picture frame), which looks rather obvious.
  4. When I place an image via picture frame, I see I can update it with "Replace image". I guess this is like linking a picture in Indesign? But is there an option to update all or selected linked images which have been edited/changed in another tool, like I can update links in Indesign? I tried and painted in an already linked image, saved that and looked at it in Affinity, and it wasn't updated. So I'm wondering how this is supposed to work. I also tried right click on the image in the picture frame (or it's layer) and looked for an option like "edit..." (in Photoshop, Affinity Photo or whatever). But I didn't find anything like that. Maybe I looked in the wrong places?
  5. Is it possible to create a shape from an outline in Affinity Designer? For example if I have a straight line with a set stroke width of 12px which isn't a "closed shape" like it's needed for certain printing techniques: is there some way to create a closed shape from a line with stroke, in this simple case 2 points (line from A to B), to have a shape without outline, with 4 points and a width of 12px? Without doing that completely manually? Edit: Ok, forget it. Found the option in the layer settings via the upper menu. At first I looked in the context menu of the layer, which didn't help much.
