  1. Hi Oval, I missed that announcement. Glad to hear it's a known issue and being worked on. Cheers – Timber
  2. Completely hosed. No tools, no Studio panels, cannot create New Document, really odd behavior, this and the current build of AP Mac too behave this way on OS X 10.9.5 Mac, early versions of Betas were fine, current release App store builds run fine. Just these last betas of AD and AP Mac. - Timber
  3. Wow, all kinds of problems with this build, completely unusable. No tools, no Studio windows, no preferences access, splash screen never closes. Strange behaviors in AD beta too! Just nothing works right. Mac OS Mavericks 10.9.5, Betas at least worked up to this point. - Timber
  4. I think too the previous fast pace of newer beta releases and updates, prior to adding the Windows and iPad versions of the apps, got everyone spoiled. That was very impressive, but it's also very understandable with the expanded product releases that things need to be crossed checked and make sure the code base functions properly across the various platforms now. I think the programmers are doing a great job and encourage all to sit tight and wait for the goodies. I'm sure the programmers want to add to these programs prowess as much as we all want to see that happen too. Meanwhile, there's still so much I learn all the time that I can do with the existing builds. Keep up the fantastic work guys and gals! and Thanks! – Timber
  5. Also, as In AD I get a reliable crash every time I try to switch between Dark and Light UI or Light and Dark. in Affinity Photo Mac 1.6 Beta 1, using OS X 10.9.5 Mavericks. – Timber

  7. Affinity Designer Beta 2.1 Mac reliably crashes every time I go to switch between light UI and dark UI. Just like clockwork. 2.5 ghz Intel Core i5 with 8 GB ram.
  8. Hi all, since a tutorial for doing this magnificent work hasn't been made, that I'm aware of, I wanted to point out this video of a similar design that covers some of the techniques for realizing a car in Affinity Designer. Take a look at this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_-ZViQZwWQ Perhaps it will help some of us looking to up our game and achievement with AD. :) Cheers – Timber
  9. bleduc - thank you! It wasn't apparent that there was a skew control via the cursor.... it's great to know! – Timber
  10. Also, as noted in AP Beta forums, when I place some Artistic Text and then apply a gradient, and if I try to manipulate the gradient, most of the time I can get AD Beta to crash hard, it's worse IMHO in AP Beta, but I can reproduce it with fairly good reliability in AD Beta. Cheers - Timber
  11. Bug report: Love the new Font features... when one selects All fonts, there's a blue outline showing that it's selected. Moving left to right, selecting Recent, Used and Favorites, this blue outline does not appear to indicate they're selected. Though interesting, moving right to left from Favorites to Used to Recent, highlights the All incorrectly! Note: the selection is much more apparent otherwise in the Light UI vs the Dark UI. Also, I really feel that the fonts should autoscroll as one's cursor hits the bottom or top of the font lists, as if one is trying different fonts in a long list of fonts, you'd have to scroll and auto-scroll via the cursor is far more efficient and expected. Additionally I'll join the voices asking for more contrast or visual cues when a tool is selected, or especially things like the close box on open documents - again mostly a problem on the Dark UI. Cheers - Timber
  12. Bug report: If I place some artistic Text on a layer over a photo layer background and then try to use the gradient tool on it, the program crashes. I've been able to do this every time I've tried it. Cheers - Timber
  13. Note, followup: I see the selection contrast in the fonts menu list is better in the Light UI vs the Dark UI. The blue outline of All... Recent, Used, Favorites would help in the Dark one if implemented correctly. – Timber

  15. I've had two successful printing jobs now using SpotUV with Affinity Designer. The results are exactly as I envisioned and setup in AD. The key thing I needed was the suggestion above from MikeW to export as a PDF/x-4. Now one needs to setup the file as the printer specs, i.e., create a spot overprint color for the SpotUV, create a top layer for the SpotUV elements and duplicate or trace the object(s) one wants in SpotUV in this top layer and fill them with the SpotUV color. And export as a PDF/x-4. Many thanks and kudos to the wonderful Affinity Forums and members for help in this matter. Cheers – Timber
