  1. I agree. It would be really handy to be able to unlink or delete a master item from one page when you need to. In InDesign you can Shift+Cmd click on the master page item to unlink it. It won't always work to have a whiteout box over the master page elements, especially if you have a textured background.
  2. I found if you click the corner point and then hold crtl it allows you to scale the fame and the content, but it also seem to rotate, so you have to be careful to not rotate the frame. I've tried adding shift and alt to the mix, but it doesn't lock the rotation in... So I've just changed rotation in the transform panel.
  3. Thanks, that's amazing... Strange... the orange examples I have above was done with a single curve... I have tried it now and it works. Not sure why the previous one didn't work. Thanks for the vid. Really helpful.
  4. Ok, so I finally found that I had to convert to curves or draw something with the pentool to activate the menu items. But now, the two options look the same...
  5. What are the possible reasons for the Alternate and Winding Fills to be greyed out in the menu? I'm following instructions from the help file: When I try it, I cannot select either: I've tried with nothing selects, with only one object selected, with two objects selected. I've tried selecting directly on the artboard as well as from the layers menu. Am I missing something or is the help file just sketchy?
  6. THANKS! Now why doesn't anyone else say so. I spend days searching online. Now I'm a happy chappie again.
  7. yes, I know Cmd+J and it works fantastically if you use alt+drag to make the duplicate... I like to use the transform panel to make my transformations, but if I'm going to alt+drag, then I don't have the control I want when I would make the adjustments with the transform panel. In Illustrator there is a feature that allows me to transform while making copies and and a preview to see whether it is what I'm looking for. So, take a shape, cmd+c, then cmd+v, then make transformations (move, scale, skew)... then cmd+J. THAT does not work... THAT is the feature that I would love to see implemented. Not a rant... Just a request.
  8. Definitely +1. I do a lot of geometric art and complex charts. I use the live paint tool in illustrator all the time. So now, whenever I need to create one of these I have to go back into Illustrator. I really would like to ditch Adobe and only use Affinity.
  9. Any news on the Blend tool option? It's been 4 years since this roadmap... This is a feature I use often in Illustrator. I've been using AD for a year now, but I still find myself having to go back to Illustrator to do certain things. I cannot give up on Adobe until all my needs are met by AD, so still paying subscription every month, but using AD most of the time. And the ability to use power duplicate with transform panel options instead of just with alt+drag.
  10. Thanks @GabrielM, The anticipation is killing me I know the wait will be worth it, because the Affinity team did such a great job with Designer and Photo. Thanks @MikeW, Yes, I always package, so always have the IDML files.
  11. 1. Would I be able to open files created in InDesign or QuarkXpress in Publisher like I can do with Illustrator files in Designer and Photoshop files in Photo? I use InDesign a lot want to know if I need to start converting files before Publisher is released and before I let go of my Adobe Subscription. 2. Would we be able to create interactive PDFs as we can do in InDesign? Hyperlinks, Cross-Referencing, Table of Contents, etc.? 3. Any news on release date for Publisher?
