    Image Cropping

    Being able to crop or define a slice from a selection could be really useful when creating macros. I currently have a few hundred images from a client where I need to crop the extra white border, I was hoping to achieve this with Affinity Photo and a little macro but it seems I’ll have to go back to Photoshop for this.

    Unusually large SVG export

    Another day of weird behaviour, I exported a circle around a euro symbol. With a quick optimisation I ended up with the following code: <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 12 12" stroke-linejoin="round"> <path d="M6.077 0l0.077 0.002 0.077 0.002 0.077 0.004

manually and replaced the last block: <circle cx="6" cy="6" r="5.5" style="stroke-width:1; fill:none"/> It turns out that the small block is the complete euro symbol whereas the huge one is the circle. Since AD does know it is a circle, why not create a circle element with a stroke-width or a path with 8 points if for a reason you can't rely on the stroke-width ?
  3. It isn't well known but Microsoft has done a great lot of work regarding fonts and they did release a few high quality fonts lately
  4. I understand but know that it will be a welcome addition
  5. @Dave Harris Any chance you are also working on optical kerning ? As for optical margin alignement I didn’t ask for it before thinking you’ll get to it when working on Affinity Publisher but I didn’t find anything new on that side.
  6. When I saw this option I was hoping for automatic text kerning but instead it seems to be Indesign optically margin alignement with some nice new options. Can anyone tell me if the optical kerning is hidden somewhere ?
  7. I’m sure that for the developers it doesn’t feel like that
  8. Hi Affinity team, the end of the month is coming really really fast ! Is there a further delay to expect or you are waiting to the last minute in order to polish the code ? PS. Deadlines are the worst
  9. I would love to see Affinity build a tool like the now unsupported Colorschemer studio (mac OS). I know that the team as already a lot to do and that there already are options to create complementary swatches but it doesn’t allow the same feedom in color exploration. It could be either build in the current apps or as a small stand alone tool.
  10. Just to bring up the subject again since a (busy) year after there is no update on this part. I would really love to be able to use the artboard or the parent layer or group as a path variable (or even the artboard parent layer/group). This would make life so much easier to prepare lists of assets.
  11. For that I think a limited application that would be more a reader would be nice.
  12. @seabirdr What kind of spec tools ? You can already have a lot of informations when selecting an element from the contextual menu and you can get the distance to any surrounding element by using a key modifier.
  13. @paulstar08 It seems that they had internally a prototyping tool for Affinity Designer. Adding grids layout can be useful for everyone not only webdesigners so an extra app seems overkill if they can add a prototyping persona. But of course if they do release a dedicated tool I’ll buy it on day one
  14. We are all waiting for it but publishing a half baked software wouldn’t help anyone. The beta is coming in about a month and if it is like the other 2 Affinity public betas, you will be able to use it "carefully" in production right from day one.

    Problems with pixel view and whole number coordinates

    Ok, I did and it was indeed set to zero. I don't remember doing that but I do remember that on an earlier version I had trouble with pixel alignement that would snap on half pixels. I might have changed it then to try to fight this behaviour. What I don't understand is why was I able to put a point to a non integer place while having the decimal place set to zero ? Shouldn't the system round the position to the nearest integer ? I don't see the point in changing the decimal place in the preferences if it only round the displayed value and not the position itself. This brings me to a new feature option that would align the item to a grid (you could define the grid and rounding options before applying). This would make things a lot easier for web designer
