  1. We need a checkbox to force the corners of a dashed stroke object to be the same. Currently it's almost impossible to achieve a symmetrical look when using a dashed stroke on a rectangle, even when messing with the Dash, Space, and Phase values. Illustrator does this well and it's really useful.
  2. +1 for this, it would be extremely handy to have a button that would set that slice dimensions to match the canvas/document. I'm exporting product shots, there are about 40 dog collars that all need to be the same final dimensions, but they take up different dimensions within the document. I have to manually drag the boundaries of every slice to make this happen.
  3. Man this is a pretty basic need, please consider adding this feature. 2022 and still not here
  4. Good thinking. I really wish they would allow Set Decoration Color: Text as a default option. I'm not a programmer but I would think this is an easy thing to implement.
  5. Currently, when I re-open an old project (or have 2 or more open projects) and export assets, the file path opens to the last location used by the application. That means I am constantly having to track down the folder that the document belongs in, to keep things organized. Is it possible to have Designer remember the Save To file path on a document basis, instead of as a global application basis? That would make things so much simpler and easier to work with.

  7. On Publisher 1.81 I'm happy to say that Column Break and Frame Break hotkeys now work properly! Thank you! Page Break hotkey still exhibits the same incorrect behavior—it produces a space, while selecting the option from the dropdown menu does work properly.
  8. Hi there, I purchased Designer and Photo through the App store, while I have Publisher through the Affinity store. Publisher and Designer have been updating just fine, but Photo does not—despite following these instructions. Affinity Photo is still stuck at 1.7.3 and it will not appear in the Updates section of the App store. Any ideas? I am on High Sierra 10.13.6
  9. I came to make a request for this. It's absolutely needed and extremely useful!! I have several documents that grow over time as new information gets added. For example one is a list of Wine Awards—when a new award comes in, I make a new page in the appropriate section and let the following pages shuffle down. Having the ability to define Custom Fields would allow me to set up inputs for repeating subheads (for a subgroup of awards all coming from the same competition for example). Hoping this makes it into APub 1.8
  10. I have bound hotkeys to Text > Insert > Line Break, Column Break, Frame Break, and Page Break. The only hotkey that works correctly is the default Line Break hotkey (Shift+Return). The others do not work as expected. Column Break (bound to Opt+Return) produces a Paragraph Break. Frame Break (bound to Opt+Enter) produces a Paragraph Break. Page Break (bound to Shift+Enter) produces a Space of some kind, however it doesn't show the blue dot that a normal space shows when you enable Show Special Characters. It has no symbol. Selecting each option from the mouse menu works as expected. Macintosh OS 10.13.6 APub 1.7.3
  11. Exactly. Some printers also request individual pages for some reason. We either need multipage support or AT LEAST the ability to independently change the size of facing pages
  12. + 100 for this! tried to manually increase the size of the right-hand page in a facing spread, but it increases the size of BOTH pages. I can't make a page with a fold-in tab without a frustrating workaround. I love Publisher and canceled Adobe (I've purchased everything Serif makes) in trust that some of these issues will be getting addressed.
  13. This and a replacement for the transformation panel are two HUGE features that are needed constantly. Hoping Serif puts them on the priority list. And fixing the stroke expansion...
  14. Ah, so even when working on projects destined for print it may be a good idea to use "force pixel alignment"?
  15. If I make any two straight-edged object and align their straight sides, Designer still shows (and outputs) a small gap between them. I have a series of triangles with rectangles beneath them, making white pillars. Unless I overlap them, Designer outputs a faint grey line between the two objects, when I expect there to be no visible gap. Designer 1.7 Release Vitrector_Adornments.afdesign
  16. Bumping! Pleasing text composition is one cornerstone that sets professional typesetting apart.
  17. Not that I would recommend it for anyone else, but I took the leap and discontinued my Adobe subscription already. Using Publisher daily and it hasn't let me down yet!
  18. I'm sure this has been asked already but I figured I would give it a bump because it's so important. I have left Adobe behind for a bright Affinity future, but I sorely miss the Transformation Panel that Illustrator had—it's so much more useful than the current iteration of Power Duplicate because it allows the user to preview how the duplications look before locking them in. For generating symmetrical designs this is vital. Also missing the simple functionality to duplicate and ADD vs being limited to duplicate and MULTIPLY. For example if I want to make concentric circles that increase at 5pts diameter with every iteration, I have to do this manually because power duplicate progressively increases the diameter changes with every iteration.
  19. Very important feature, +1 for it to be implemented! There are many situations in which it is necessary to split part of a text frame into 2 columns, or to span a 2 column layout periodically with a single heading. Both are needed
