    Uncle Mez reacted to thomaso in Shortcut to Break text | HowTo   
    Sounds the command "Convert to Curves" has the keyboard shortcut Shift+Return assigned. Open tha app preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts > Layer > … and check if there is a shortcut at "Convert to Curves".
    It appears to be possible to assign Shift+Return, though Affinity warns me with a yellow triangle + tooltip info. If it exists in your preferences then remove the shortcut with a click on the circle x icon.

    Uncle Mez got a reaction from HenrikF in Affinity : Content Aware crop and Fill ???   
    Hello Peoples !
    Just want to know if it is possible to do a content aware crop or/and content aware fill with Affinity.
    if No ! did someone achieve something similar using one of the available tools ?
    Please share if you succeeded with this so can learn and apply.
    in case of 100% then it would be a great functionality to add.
    Blessings !

    Uncle Mez reacted to SaltyClownShoes in New Beta?   
    Patrick, I appreciate the response and the later assurances that things are being worked on behind the scenes.  That's a relief for me. 
    As to others on here, you know they release updates for all three products at the same time.  So, if they're working on a mega update it won't be released until it's ready for the entire suite of apps.  I think they collected a lot of information from all past beta waves and rather than releasing incremental packages I'm guessing they are doubling down on fixing as many issues as they can before the next release.  
     
    I love the product,  can't wait to see what they do with it.

    Bye, if you are going, it's a shame as there is a lot more to come from the Affinity range. We have not given up we are just developing some bigger stuff

    Is there any word on the next Beta release.  It's been months and I haven't seen any progress toward elimination of current bugs or stability.  The application still randomly crashes on me after 45 min to 2 hours.  This happens on multiple systems, Intel, AMD, etc.  Doesn't matter what I run it on.  Then there are the little things like missing fonts and the program will not snap to the instances where they occur.  The program will crash on creation of a Table of Contents or even while updating it.  SO, hope they are still working on stability.  I am periodically looking back here for updates, but nothing seems to be happening.

    PiXimperfect (very popular photoshop channel) posted a video covering features that are missing from Photoshop.  The video hits points that would make strong promotional points for Affinity.  Some interesting feedback in the comments as well.

    Uncle Mez got a reaction from BBkuro in Blending/interpolate Tool - Affinity Designer   
    Hello Everyone,
    Well i know this have been asked for long time by many but also wanted to add my request into the long long list
    How come Affinity Designer can't do this kind of simple stuff Inkscape can do using it's interpolate extension and Ai can do with it's tool ?
    i mean, i'm not asking affinity to be like Ai nor Inkscape but the mesh you will see attached here was created in less than 30sec on a very old laptop running Linux Fedora 29 beta with inkscape installed.
    Please guys not only this tool but make it happen with more tools straight from your Knight Bag, make me smile like you did with the new thing you have added to the pen tool of APublisher thus making it 10 times better than the Pen tool implemented into ADesigner ... Well this one still need to grow to where APub stand  but ... get it done guys and ... make me smile.
    BTW it's free to use for anyone who feel it may be of interest both Personal & commercial, the SVG you can use to recolor with ADesigner or APhoto. Enjoy !

    Uncle Mez got a reaction from Laura Ess in Affinity Photo Bump Map using Existing Layer   
    Hello @edferg
    Was just looking on how to Bump map with affinity photo and your content helped me to find it.
    Well there are many methods but that one is okay and i like it thanks !
    I think it should be brought to front instead of being burried within another filter, a dedicated bump map filter with necessary settings would be help full.
    So if we want to add live light then we only add live light but we can just chose to make bump map itself without the need of passing through or by the live light filter.
    i invite @Andy Somerfield and @MattP to have a look here and tell us what they think.
    Well i use Mac but the settings are the same on both plateforms/
    Blessings !

    Due to current and anticipated changes to help with performance issues this version is now 1.10.0 and replaces the previous 1.9.4 beta. All previous changes from 1.9.4 have been rolled into this beta.
    As such, we strongly recommend that you do not use this beta for real work as data could be lost and the files you save are not guaranteed to open in previous / future versions of Affinity Designer.
