Alfred reacted to PatrickOfLondon in Tiny corrections to "View > Customise Tools..."
Thank you Alfred, for unearthing the not-quite-so-missing Affinity Cat.
In which case, I think there's a correction required to the Help entry for Cat, which says the Alt key is used.... but it's the Shift key that's required, instead.
Hoping a separator tool-tip will make it into the release version (for which things are now looking very good), or an early update to that.

The Cat Tool isn’t missing from the Shapes flyout, it’s (deliberately) hidden! To display this particular ‘Easter egg’, hold down the Shift key when you click on the tiny triangle.
I agree that the separator is crying out for a tooltip.

Sorry for the error had a late night.
Yes you have sorted it. Many thanks Alfred.
Alfred reacted to DM1 in Clipping image to a group
I think it’s preferable, as it allows you to select individual shapes and add to or reposition them easily. @garywi The attachment explains it pretty well but I can never remember which is what, cropping/clipping, usually get a result by trial and error.

Alfred reacted to PatrickOfLondon in Tiny correction to "help text" content
Hi, apologies for reporting such a minuscule error, but speaking as a perfectionist....
in Help > Appendix > Preferences > ...
• Instead of placeholder 'latin' text you can add our own custom text content (any language) to act as filler text.
..."our" should be "your".
You could also helpfully add "in" before "any", and capitalise "latin", so the corrected help entry would become:
• Instead of placeholder 'Latin' text you can add your own custom text content (in any language) to act as filler text.
At least it's something that's easy to fix!
Alfred got a reaction from DM1 in 126.96.36.199 Bleed limits
Bleed should be whatever value(s) you choose, usually 3 mm all around. It was zero here before I tried to change it, but my units were set to points; when I attempted to ‘resize’ the document to use mm instead of pt, the app crashed.
Edit: I see that the question is actually about the different maximum values. I’m afraid I’ve no idea what the reason for that might be.
Alfred reacted to sharron in Eraze tool missing
Awww Alfred, Thank you soooo much for your speedy reply, I've spent hours searching as didn't realise this, and the video is brilliant I've managed to change the colour to suit within 30 seconds of watching.. I think I'll be finding myself on here quite a lot lol. once again a huge thank you Alfred.
Alfred got a reaction from Dan C in Pageplus to pdf colour shift
Alternatively, post to the CommunityPlus Forum.
Loss of brightness suggests that you’re using the RGB colour space in your design but then publishing to PDF for print using CMYK. The CMYK colour space has a much smaller gamut, and bright colours (especially green and orange) are among the casualties.

Alfred got a reaction from ThirtyFiveThousand in “Shear” Transformation in vertical plane
For changes which are visually based, we really need to be able to effect rotation and shear via the canvas instead of the Transform Studio. We can do this in the desktop apps, but I can’t see any way to do it in the iPad apps.
Alfred reacted to Jonas Nyström in Designer: Inconsistent object sizing (aspect ratio) for Image and Vector layers
Ah, thanks a lot, Alfred!
I just could not understand why on earth I could never learn how to size things in Designer..! This will definitely reduce my WTF stress level! :-)
