    Thanks for the file Markcq, I've reproduced the issue and passed it onto development.

    You'll find that a non-destructive subtract works with your examples. A non-destructive boolean is performed by holding down opt/alt key when clicking the boolean button or picking the boolean command from a menu. Then you can use Convert To Curves command if you need the boolean operation to be destructive. I'm only suggesting this as a workaround until there's a fix - obviously, the destructive operation should just work. Maybe non-destructive booleans are using more reliable code from 1.7.x.

    Yes, I’m aware of the fact that there is a crescent shape, but this is something that came up as I was showing someone what add, subtract, intersect, etc. does... and shapes as seen in the attached screenshots is not what is expected. This is the first time I noticed it, hence trying a few locations and positions...  not all positions produced that result, only some... it just seem a bit unstable and buggy.

    Thanks. I accidentally discovered the Resource Manager just a few minutes ago.
    Thanks for the Preferences tip. I'll go have look at that now.

    It's available, depending on what you want. See the Collect function on the Resource Manager Help page that Wosven mentioned.
    Also, there's a Preference for automatically updating changed files that are Linked.

    Oh no! Quark is also bad! 🙈
    At least Adobe gives you the option to collapse the panels to icons or you have the ability to doc panels into two or more columns. And if you have a set workspace then you develop muscle memory to the locations of the panel sets and your workflow is not hampered by looking for things.

    Yes, I know this already. The panels can just get muddled up. I've been working with design software since 1994, starting with FreeHand and Illustrator. I never got panels mixed up. In Affinity the panel sets get a bit messy. Every time I need to go to a panel I need to search for it. It would be easier if it can be collapsable to an icon and I call up the panel when I need it.

    I love the Affinity Software, but I find the panel sets a little challenging at times, because they all dock in on each other and sometimes it gets a little tricky to navigate the panels. The easiest way for me to work at the moment is to work with two monitors where I use one monitor only for panels, but I travel a lot and don't travel with two screens. So a way to make workspaces a little more flexible would be great.
    Is there a way to make another column of panels that are collapsible as in Adobe? This feature really saves time and makes the workflows easier, because you can build muscle memory to the location of the tool sets.

    Should be added soon! Also there is no "reveal in finder" in ressource manager to find assets manually. Yes, there is a path, but this is awfull slow to work with.

    Hi,
    I feel very happy with Publisher, its a great program and as an Indesign User I don't have any problems to use it imminently :-)
    I was trying my first professionell projects with and after finished I wanted to export everything for backup reasons.... I was a really shocked that a packaging feature is missing....I still can't believe it. Now I must do this manually??? Really?
    Please understand, a package-feature is a MUST-have, otherwise I can't use Publisher for my daily work.
    Pllllllease!!!
     
    Many greetings,

    Markcq reacted to jocstone in Overprint preview   
    no no no, thats overkill! and not-done in Indesign. I'm talking about all other colors except standard black. What if you have a color swatch 50% black, sometimes you want to knock it out and sometimes you want it to overprint. Making 2 swatches is way to much work, just select the object you want to overprint and set it to overprint in the attributes panel. That's the way it should go and not set per color swatch…

    Markcq reacted to ROYGBV in Symmetry Tool   
    Radial symmetry, &  mirror symmetry are 2 of the simplest symmetries. A professional level design program should allow design work in all 17 wall paper groups. Even free java applets (for example  2 versions of "Escher Sketch") on the internet can do this. And long ago plugins for photoshop (Terazzo & Kai's Power Tools) had a filter that allowed this with images, with a live preview. So although it sounds complicated good programmers do such things just for kicks. Later an overpriced, clunky plug in was made for A illustrator, that did this called "Symmetry Works". And now there is a consumer level app on ipad, for play purposes that also works with all the symmetry groups. (  http://science-to-touch.com/en/iOrnament.html  )  ( https://eschersket.ch/ and  http://levskaya.github.io/eschersketch/   and  http://skuld.bmsc.washington.edu/~merritt/bc530/local_copies/escher/ )
    To make the program useful for whole other markets: textile designers, etc., this is an essential functionality. To differentiate Affinity designer from the rest of the pack, implementing this well, could easily  be another great step.

    Please add to ADesigner something like the amazing Symmetry Tool from CorelDRAW (and Adobe illustrator), that allows to create all kinds of shapes and lines in a symmetrical pattern easley and instantly.
    (In AD its only for "brushes" in the "pixel persona")

    Markcq reacted to R C-R in Is there any shortcut to zoom in or out?   
    In the Mac Affinity apps you can use CMD + spacebar to zoom in & out with the mouse pointer but you have to press the spacebar first for this to work.
     
    If you have a mouse with a scroll wheel you can set it to zoom the display in Preferences > Tools. This is really useful because with this enabled you can zoom at the same time you do other things with the mouse pointer.

    I think this not so intuitive. While Indesign has two options (manual and numerical) I often use the button 'fit content to frame' or 'fit frame to content'. So the UI offers more options for how you want to do the work.
