  1. Small length problem with the missing font notification. The current text "Le document comporte des polices manquantes" translates to "The document has missing fonts". It could easily be shortened to "Document’s missing fonts" witch in French would be "Polices du document manquantes". Otherwise you need to allow text wrapping or define the notification width depending on the content.
  2. No sorry, it was simple flyers that I could have done with Designer but I wanted the benefits of the better control of the text blocs that Publisher offers.
  3. I used it for simple jobs and everything was perfect. The most important I think is to remember it is still a beta and to check your PDF thoroughly.
  4. Affinity Designer download is about 260 Mo and 1.2 Go once installed. Affinity Photo is about the same. Now Publisher is still in beta so my guess is there is some debugging code there that will be removed but it won't be significant. As for your rant that it was better before, todays applications are vastly more complex and capable. Would you get back to applications from that era ? That alone could justify the gain but there is also the fact that nowadays icon resources and images are also more common and bigger then before. On macOS a simple application icon with all different states can weight more than 1Mo. If you open the app package you can see that the icons assets weights more than 250 Mo and there are thousands of them.
  5. Hi, I’m pretty sure I’m missing something obvious, but how do you exit the text editing mode without having to switch tools in Affinity Designer ? In Photoshop cmd + return will do this, but in AD it converts the text to curves (witch leads to numerous errors on my part. So much that I now have changed the shortcut). If there is a way I would love to hear about it otherwise, I would love to see this added.

    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 ?
  8. 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
  9. I understand but know that it will be a welcome addition
  10. @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.
  11. 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 ?
  12. I’m sure that for the developers it doesn’t feel like that
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. For that I think a limited application that would be more a reader would be nice.
  17. @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.
  18. @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
  19. 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

    Problems with pixel view and whole number coordinates

    Both Ideally when I activate the Force pixel alignement, I should only be able to move points on a 1px grid. This means that any misaligned point would be snapped to this grid and that you could easily cleanup a misaligned file like the one above to be pixel perfect. But, if I disable the Force pixel alignement or type a coordinate containing a comma, it should show me the correct value in the transform panel. Right now, after I typed X: 303.5 in the transform panel it shows me that the point X coordinate is 304 which is false. If the point isn't exactly at 304.000000 it should be visible in the transform panel despite any alignement options I might have activated.

    Hi Meb, I tried already but to no avail pixel-demo.afdesign

    Problems with pixel view and whole number coordinates

    I have the same problem, even with nudge set to 1px, Move by whole pixel and force pixel alignement active. I tried disabling the pixel snapping options and increase by 0.5 px, it seems to work but when you reselect the point it shows an integer again
  24. When you use Affinity Designer or Affinity Photo in full screen on a Mac, the applications focus are incoherent to what the user would expect. If Affinity Designer is launched and in full screen. When you open an Affinity Designer file from the Finder, the file is opened in the current Affinity Designer space and the app is put in focus but you stay on the current Finder space. If you don’t pay attention to the menu bar you could thing it didn't work. For me the best behaviour would be to automatically switch to the Affinity Designer space (akin to Visual Studio Code). Another solution would be to open the file in the current space with a complete interface like Pages does but this doesn't seems suitable to me.
  25. Hi, I have high hopes for Affinity Publisher. There is still a thing that are really hard to do with Indesign that is easily achieved with HTML and CSS, inline styled blocks. I would love to be able to select one or more paragraphs and apply a block style to them. Currently you can’t do that in Indesign without creating a separate block that will not flow with the rest of the text. Last time I had a page to layout with multiple blocks after trying to do it in Indesign I opted to use HTML and CSS and then convert it to PDF using PrinceXML.
