  1. Hi, any idea what could be causing this? It's all vector art - no images. Text not converted to paths (yet) I can export to PNG - throws up the odd error when exporting to JPG but eventually went through. Thanks in advance. S
  2. Only 2 fonts and a few variants. Part of my standard use - used them countless times. I'll just have to go through them and eliminate which one is giving trouble. S
  3. Converted text to paths - seems to have fixed it. But still…
  4. Open app. Set margins, bleed, colour etc. Hit OK. Attempt to drag a master into the "pages" pane. Crashes every time. Beta: 1.7.0.270 on a MacBook Pro.
  5. D, the file just must have been corrupted. It got worse and worse - to the point that each time I did a save the whole App crashed. I've just deleted the file and will start again. S
  6. Hi, on 1 particular document I have a series of Artboards. I can't select items from separate Artboards without first either clicking on the layer OR the name of the Artboard at the top of the page. Don't have this issue on any other document. Is it a setting or just a bug? Thanks in advance. S
  7. When the list was first published Aff Designer was still in Beta and lots of features were being added - almost on a daily/weekly basis. They now have 3 products in development (iPad version as well) - so I guess they're a lot more stretched that a few years ago. Designer seems to have been on the back burner for well over a year now but I expect to see a major update this year.
  8. Just a quick check to see if the PSD templtes provided by yellowimages.com are compatible with Affinity Photo/Designer? Thanks in advance. S
  9. Just got a response from Yellow Images: That's that cleared up. Is support for "Smart Objects" on the to-do list? Thanks again. S
  10. I can confirm that once they have been implemented they are moved/removed from the list. Artboards, Pantone etc etc were all on that list but have since been implemented and removed. Still waiting on the "Knife tool" folks!
  11. Struggling to find the options. I know they exist as an effect (fx) but can't seem to find a way to apply them to a stroked shape. Thanks in advance. S
  12. I'll check that - looks all closed up but that would explain it.
  13. A selection of circles, divided - a few lines added, then joined end points (knife tool anyone?) Works fine when simple combining a number of simple shapes shapes - but possibly the direction of the curves are different for each part? That might be the problem? S
  14. I wonder is this a glitch - just combined a mix of shapes and the Align options have no effect at all?
  15. The ability to drag the x, y ruler and set it anywhere on the page would be really helpful. Double click resets it to the top left of the page. I must dig out my old copy of Freehand and post a video of how it handle the transition between Type tool and Move tool. It was seamless and never involved changing tools or breaking stride. It was as simple as holding down the command key. It's still my only real quibble with Designer.
  16. This was something I was working on Friday and it won't open today. Any ideas?
  17. Can we have some "tabs" for setting text?
  18. Currently AD lets me change lower case text to 'all caps' or 'small caps'. It won't go the other way. Occasionally you have huge chunk of text copied and pasted from another source that is 'all caps'. Currently forced to retype the whole shebang - usually introducing errors. A feature to change all to 'lowercase' would be great (see Freehand ;) ). Thanks S
  19. Small feature - badly missed. Almost 1st thing I missed when moving to AD. Please implement.
  20. There's been a slight improvement to the text tool - it now lets you move the text box when hovered over the top of the frame - without changing tool. I've been bangin on about hat since last year - so thanks! The BIG problem seems to be ADs notion that when you are working with text you are doing this exclusively to everything else. This is not the case. You are working on text - moving it into position, moving other objects around it, then changing the text again, tweaking other objects in relation to it and so on and so on… At the minute I have to switch tool each time. GIVE US A TOGGLE KEY FOE MOVE TOOL. Freehand had this worked out perfectly. Also - the text box still doesn't expand automatically as more text is created. Also - FREEHAND FEATURE REQUEST 2: pulling down the centres node at the bottom of the text frame = increase leading. Typographically speaking - AD has some way to go yet. Keep up the great work.
  21. Option to zero (0:0) the ruler both vertically and horizontally at any part of the page. Drag and drop - double click to reset to default. Please. S
  22. I used iView Media Pro for about 6 years when managing photographic library. It handled every type of file imaginable - it became an invaluable tool. It was hands down the best package available back then - nothing came close. Microsoft then acquired it and stopped supporting Mac which more or less killed it stone dead. It was bought from microsoft a number of years back and is now developed by PhaseOne. http://www.phaseone.com/en/Imaging-Software/Media-Pro/FAQ.aspx I've haven't used it since as I don't do that type of work any more but it's worth investigating.
