  1. I must say that this doesn't affect me so much but it is driving my sister crazy. She has a lot of clients and is constantly jumping between them so this is a constant source of mistakes for her. At this point this should be a priority, especially as this is the behavior from Adobeโ€™s applications, this would greatly help newcomers ๐Ÿ˜‡
  2. Ok, I was to quick to declare victory. Once you licence is linked to your Affinity account, you might still have to activate the other applications. To do that, do not follow the same process as before ! Click on the "I already have a licence" link at the bottom and login to you account. I my case doing so in Publisher did also unlock Photos but if it doesn't just repeat the process ๐Ÿ˜… PS. While troubleshooting I discovered that there is no way to disconnect your Affinity account from the applications.
  3. I just tried and this time it worked perfectly. Just be careful to select the Universal Licence and not the single App Licence like I almost did. If you select the Universal Licence it should ask you to log in your Affinity account and voilร  ๐Ÿ˜… PS. I still don't have any news from the Affinity support team, so big thank you to @PeterDB for posting the solution here ๐Ÿ‘
  4. Just to bump this discussion and to mention that of course the specific superellipse type we are all looking for is the squircle or to be even more precise a quintic superellipse as mentioned in this Wikipedia article. But having access to other kind of superellipse using the superformula for exemple could also be really nice ๐Ÿ˜
  5. Not ideal but donโ€™t think it is a big deal. They will fix this and we can use the trial version in the meantime ๐Ÿ˜
  6. Hi, I have a similar issue here. I downloaded the 3 apps from the App Store, launched Affinity Designer, proceed to buy the Universal Licence and after confirming the payment, nothing. The App Store do list the 3 apps as purchased but Designer only offers to activate, buy or try. The restore purchase doesn't work and I tried the trial, thinking I could then have more options via the account, but nothing ๐Ÿ˜ญ Note that I have an Affinity ID linked to my existing applications and it was automatically retrieved when I started the trial. So now my Affinity ID is connected but there is no universal licence linked to it.
  7. A roadmap would be really nice but it isn't always possible. I have a SAS product on the way and we plan to publish a partial roadmap showing only the features we are currently working on without any deadline. After giving it some thought, showing our complete list just doesn't makes sense as we don't know when we will get there and this will only build frustrations.
  8. About the controversy concerning the price of the update. So far as I understand there has been no communication at all about changes to their business model. A survey doesn't change that, especially since we don't know what the results are. One of the key point in Affinity's communication has been โ€œno subscriptionโ€, so I expect that they honor that and offer a paid upgrade for a 2.x perpetual licence. Depending on their marketing strategy, they could offer an upgrade licence price or consider that the full licence price is low enough that they don't really need an upgrade price and simply launch with a temporary discount. I would go with a temporary discount as it offer several advantages. It is easier to implement (especially for the Apple App Store where paid upgrades are still not really a thing) and the discount being temporary it pushes all existing customers to upgrade immediately. Anyway, Iโ€™ll gladly pay for the upgrade simply because I enjoy using the applications and want to support the teamโ€™s work ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  9. I was a bit taken aback by the sudden lack of updates or any new beta without any official communication. I think an official post on the main News section of the forums and perhaps a brief article talking about the future of the Affinity range on the Affinity Spotlight site would have been a great idea (and might still be depending on how close you are from releasing the new versions). This thread did reassure me that all is good, but customers shouldn't have to search for these kind of informations ๐Ÿ˜… To clarify, a simple post in the forum News section saying that the updates will slow down for a while as the team is working on something important would be enough.
  10. Hi, The save dialog box default to the last folder you saved a file to instead of the last folder you saved a file to OR the folder of the last opened file. This may seem a minor issue but it causes a lot of mistakes. Is there any chances youโ€™ll fix this quickly ? Pretty please ?
  11. It would be great if we could set nudge distances in the preferences depending on the unit like it is possible for the decimal place. When working with pixels I like my nudge units to be 1px and 10px but when I work in mm it make more sense to set it to 1mm and 10mm. Currently you have to change it manually each time and I often forget as I constantly switch between print and web.
  12. Voting for features shouldn't be a contraint for the development roadmap, but it is a nice way to highlight the users interests in a more structured way then a forum. Dropbox did it for a while and it was really great ! They didn't always pick the most popular features, but used it as an ideation source and they updated the features status thus allowing the community to see that a feature was included in the internal roadmap, in progress or has already shipped in an update.
  13. We are having the same issues here. This isn't the defautl behavior on a Mac and causes mayhem for my sister and I as we regularly save files in the wrong folders and can't find them later ๐Ÿ˜“ If you open a file, the default location to save a new version or export this file should be the parent folder of this file. PS. The only exception I can think of would be the export persona where last path used to export could be saved within the file.
  14. I concur, I used this extensively on Indesign with bullets, titles or even inline images.
  15. @YuY222 Hold on the affinity team is doing an incredible job so far ! Their priorities are simply not always aligned with some of us. I would love to see this feature implemented but I donโ€™t think it is fair to throw some shade on them because someone else did it faster.
  16. Pretty please ๐Ÿ™ Even if Affinity can't import PSD composition that uses mesh wrap, it would be really useful to create new mockups.
  17. This is a critical issue ! How can this not be a top priority ??? I thought that having all 3 applications working seamlessly together was the all point. Recognizing transparency is quite important for a lot of us. What is the point of being able to switch between the 3 applications if you can't work with the native file formats ๐Ÿ˜ญ Having to open the Photos files to export them as TIFF isn't what I had in mind when they announced the benefits of having a shared file format ๐Ÿ˜…
  18. @thomaso Sorry for the double post, I didnโ€™t find yours. I think this is due to the fact that the affinity team doesnโ€™t activate the display current layer in their preferences. Depending on the way you work it is a problem that they never encountered ๐Ÿ˜
  19. I just noticed that Publisher has a similar approach to what I imagine. Only the layers from the current โ€œactiveโ€ page are displayed. Having that as an option for Designer would be so nice ๐Ÿ˜
  20. When you switch from one artboard to another. The current selected artboard is the active one while all others are inactive. If you checked the option to automatically show the selected layer it can quickly become quite dense and collapsing all but the current useful information would be nice ๐Ÿ˜ I hope this description can be better understood. Even when switching the app in English the documentation still shows in French so I donโ€™t always have the proper names ๐Ÿ˜–
  21. I would love to have an option that would close all the artboards that are not currently active. It would help a lot in navigating complex files with dozen of artboards (or pages). By the way an option to expand or collapse all sub-layers/objects when alt clicking the arrow of a layer/object would be nice too.
  22. Webp is less efficient then avif and needs licensing. Skip Webp and go to avif directly ๐Ÿ˜‹
  23. On this topic I am curious to why when using Dropbox Smart Sync, PSD files that are not local do still show a preview while Affinity files don't. Is this something you can fix or does it depend on Dropbox software ? PS. I plan to move out from Dropbox for Apple iCloud now that it has a folder sharing option, but this could be quite an issue for a lot of users.
