  1. Agree. I have already been asked to build my PDFs with DDA compliance.
  2. Still crashes when rearranging the swatch palette. Any news of an update for this?
  3. I have many objects that I need to create art-boards from but I'm unable to create an art-board because the object bounding box re-size handle overrides the art-board tool. Locking the object layer is the only way to do this. My problem is that I have multiple objects, so unlocking and then locking each one in turn very time consuming and unnecessary. Any news on a better solution would be appreciated.
  4. I often work from home and have my panels laid out differently on my studio desktop, home desktop and my MacBook Pro, so I often find myself in a muddle. Some kind of sync that remembered settings and tool layouts would be useful.
  5. I would + 1 to a sync option to be included in future versions. I often work from home and have my panels laid out differently on both studio and home desktops and my MacBook Pro, so I often find myself in a muddle.
  6. + 1 exporting IMDL. This is very important when working with other agencies.
  7. I must be having one of those days. I totally missed that! Thanks Walt. Rob
  8. I use column guides as a layout tool but there is no way to hide them except for toggling preview mode. Being part part of the 'Guides Management' pane I'd expect to be able to 'Show' and 'Hide' them by simply showing or hiding guides?
  9. When selecting shapes I often have to select different shapes to change colour selections until I get the correct colour combination. Some of the shapes have only a shape fill and some have only a stroke fill. Currently, when selecting a shape to colour selection defaults to the last choice i.e if the last thing I filled was a stroke and I selected a shape the stoke would be highlighted by default. This would be more useful and save time, if when there is only one type of fill (stroke or shape) that it defaulted to that. i.e after filling a shape and selecting another shape with a just a stroke fill, it defaulted to the stroke in the colour panel.This would work only if there was only one fill: either stoke or shape, but would save lots of clicks and time. Have linked to a screen recording to show my process. https://youtu.be/wYY_qLg68Eg Thanks
  10. Import only makes sense when you explain it, but I'd imagine most users expect to see an export and import. To make the process more obvious I think you need both options. Would be interesting to see what results a User Experience study found for this.
  11. When exporting a document to PDF there seems to be an issue with stock PDF readers on Windows computers. I'm not 100% sure, but I think the issue affects images that are placed inside a masked shape. i.e make a rectangle shape and add the image to it as a mask using the 'Insert inside the selection' tool.
  12. Hi Sean, I can confirm that it only happens when syncing a file using the Google service File Stream. I use the digital design software 'Sketch' quite a lot and that seems unaffected, don't know why only Affinity software is does this?
  13. Thanks Sean. I have a new development. I think that it might be down to saving files to the cloud. I use Google file stream, so when a file has been saved it immediately starts syncing which must take a chunk of cpu processes. Unfortunately large files take a few minutes to sync which is why I’m seeing it happen more often than not. It also explains why it’s happening on all my devices.
  14. Over the last week I've tested different 'magic mouse' configurations and even different macs, but still no luck. I'm currently using my MacBook Pro and have the same issue while using my trackpad. The document is a small 4-page Affinity Publisher document so I wouldn't think it's my MacBooks performance. Is there is anything else I could try?
  15. I wondered that as well. I’m using an Apple Magic Mouse. Later on I’ll disable some of the touch features to see whether that has an impact and post back. thanks
