  1. +1 As @cinemachine pointed out, Affinity apps are the outlier here. It would be nice to customize the modifiers to match AI, PS, Sketch, Figma, etc. I'd also like a more consistent approach to constraining proportions. I shouldn't have to think about whether I'm grabbing a side or corner handle (and thus whether I have to shift-constrain or not); I just wanna grab whichever's closest. Consistency means I can work off muscle memory which means I can work faster.
  2. Anyone else seeing this? 1. Draw Ellipse 2. Apply a radial gradient overlay. 3. Attempt to Scale Y Expected: Gradient scales as it does in the Layer Effects preview Results: Scale Y does nothing.
  3. +1 Toggling quickly between layers is super helpful for documents with lots of overlapping layers. Please consider it.
  4. I can understand (a little) if I try to think like a robot. But to me, a human, it's as simple as "what you see is what you (should) get." I never would have predicted AD's output in this case.
  5. (Facepalm emoji) Seems like this shouldn't matter but I clearly have a different mental model than AD. Thanks.
  6. Toggling the UI and Toolbar in succession causes the Tools to remain hidden. Steps to recreate: 1. With the UI visible, View > Toggle UI 2. View > Show Toolbar 3. View > Toggle UI The UI returns but the Tools remain hidden. Am I doing something wrong?
  7. Incredibly generous offer, but I'm looking to be "taught how to fish" so I can handle this myself in the future. Cheers though!
  8. See attached for something I made quick in Sketch using the "union" function on two overlapping shapes. Unfortunately the illustration was supplied by the client and I no longer subscribe to AI. Thanks, Jeff Combined Shape2.eps
  9. Why does AD import "complex" shapes like this, with a solid rectangle masked in a custom shape? And is there a way to mass-unmask? My imported illustration (AI) has dozens of layers that imported like this (it would be insane to manually fix all of them) and it's preventing me from full-vector re-export. Is there a workaround for this?
  10. When I have a layer selected I'd like to be able to click+drag to simultaneously select and move a different layer. Currently select and move have to be separate actions. Thanks for considering it.
  11. I'm also experiencing this. +1 for improving this function. For non-complex shapes you can switch to Outline View for more precise selection.
  12. +1 Pretty frustrating. This example is relatively minor — I've experienced much jumpier — and seems to be caused by group-relative positioning (a function I don't find valuable). You can usually work around this by cut/pasting before regrouping.
