  1. Absolutely. I use the Channel Mixer to work around the problem (more elegant). I posted this topic to report what seems to me to be a bug. But thank you very much for proposing these solutions 😄
  2. Hello, I have a CMYK document (ISO Coated v2 300%) with an illustration only in 100% black. I want to use the Gradient Map adjustment layer to add 40% cyan in the darkest areas (0% in white). The problem is that with the color c40, m0, y0, y100 the color is converted to 100% black. If I put c40, m0, y0, y99 it "works". Another big problem: as soon as I want to edit the black color, the values of the gradient map are modified although the result remains unchanged. GradientMap_Issue.afdesign
  3. Hello, As I have the same problem as PDPAD I allow myself to answer. I guess the problem comes from updating the font cache. If I use Adobe Illustrator (CS6) at the same time as Designer, Designer tells me that it updates the cache then the problem occurs. From there restarting the PC can temporarily resolve the problem. It's not always the same fonte that are missing.
  4. I have the same issue since 1.8 (Windows 10, not the store app). Not all the time. I have try to purge Windows font cache and restart. It's not always working. I have notice that when Affinity software push a notification "font cache updated" the issue begin or the issue gets worse. Unfortunately it's impossible to use documents edited or updated in 1.8 with 1.7.3 ...
  5. Very good news. But what about Designer et Photo ? They can produce PDF too.
  6. Thank a lot for all your replies. But we are well on the forum of feature suggestions. I am not looking for a third party solution that requires a subscription and multiple manipulation. Transferring a file from iTunes is also possible without installing anything (the method I use). I'm just suggesting a feature that would allow you to start working on iPad and finish them on PC / Mac (and vice versa) in a simple and efficient way without wasting time. For professional use we do not want to waste time on this kind of detail.
  7. Thanks. I know AirDrop but I'm not an Mac user. iPad (or iPhone) users are not necessarily Mac users. That's why I think an integrated software solution would be the most judicious.
  8. Dropbox aims to make files available on remote servers. Transferring hundreds of MB of an iPad to a desktop computer must be done without going through a server on the other side of the world. Why connect to the Internet to retrieve a file that is 1 meter away?
  9. Putting a file in the cloud to transfer it from one machine to another does not make sense. Once both softwares are on, a single button can be used to send the file one way, then in the other. This is something that already exists. For example : PreSonus Studio One. The iPad version can send audio sessions to the Desktop version (Https://www.presonus.com/produits/Capture-for-iPad) It's iOS that should be able to natively manage file transfers. But I think we should not rely on Apple on this subject.
  10. I use an iPad Pro with the Pencile. In Preferences screen, Tools tab, I have switch the "Touch for gestures only" option on. But nothing change. If I use finger with node tool, node are mooving. Thereby, Pencile precision is the same as finger. It's verry painful.
  11. Je confirme qu'un outil de mesure (distance et angle) serait indispensable. Si en plus il est possible d'avoir des cotations ça serait vraiment parfait. Sous Illustrator j'ai un plugin pour ça VectorScribe de Astut Graphics : https://astutegraphics.com/software/vectorscribe/ On a vite du mal a s'en passer.
  12. I exported on a cloud service. Maybe that's the cause. It does not happen every time.
  13. PDF/X-4 as the same issue. There are some other artifact when I tweak options. When I export from desktop version it works better. It's my first test with Affinity product for offset printing. I'm trying to switch from Adobe to Affinity ... not so easy but I believe in it :-) I upload 2 PDF with various issues and the .afdesign file Thanks sticker_A8_Desybes-2018.afdesign sticker_A8_Desybes-2018_issue1.pdf sticker_A8_Desybes-2018_issue2.pdf
  14. Hello, I create a simple doc on desktop version : one pixel background withe somme vectorized texts on it. When I export to PDF, sometime (not always) the background pixel layer have white pixels bloc on the top. On the attached picture, you can see the text (with a selected curve, so blue stroke on it). Red curtains should normally extend upwards.
