  1. Hi, going into sys prefs > trackpad and disabling pinch-to-zoom then enabling it again worked for me. I found this on Reddit: It suggests that it could be a conflict with Better Touch Tool (in my case) or similar apps like Magnet, etc. Here's my issue though: this doesn't happen in any other apps! It doesn't happen in Illustrator, Photoshop, Chrome, etc. It only affects Affinity Designer (I don't use Photo) for me. So maybe the BTT devs can help, but it seems like it's an Affinity issue that needs to be fixed on their end!
  2. I already fixed it using the Divide command. So I'm good. Thanks.
  3. Oh weird! The Divide button worked. I tried that before, but it filled in the middle of one shape. I assumed it wasn't working, but it was. Guess that works. Not very elegant. Seems like there should be a way to select just the parts (shapes within a shape?) that you want. But I guess that works to break them out.
  4. Hmmm... well I tried selecting all the nodes on one of the shapes, but if I cut it, it removes the whole layer, rather than just the part I want. What am I missing here. Surely there's a way to pull out non-overlapping parts of a shape?
  5. Hi, I have an .eps file saved in another program. There are a number of shapes that are all "linked" (sorry, I don't know the terminology here) as if they were one shape. It's not a group, and they don't overlap. I'm wondering if there's an easy way to separate them, so they're each their own shape and on their own layer? I can't seem to find an easy way. I think I can select each, and copy/paste it into it's own, but from what I can tell, I'd have to select all the nodes on each shape, on order to copy just it, since it can't be individually selected with the Move Tool. Any help appreciated.
  6. Dang! Between this and the fact it doesn't do gradient meshes (won't even open them properly from AI), I'm not sure I can switch. I pay over $50/mo just for Photoshop and Illustrator. I was really hopeful I'd pay 2 months worth for Affinity, and be done with that mess. But between these 2 issues, I just don't know if I can go all in. : (
  7. Not only does Affinity not seem to have them, it won't open them from Illustrator. I opened a design that used them, and it's showing those layers as black! : ( I was hoping to quit Ps and Ai, replacing with Affinity Photo and Designer. But this might not be possible without support for this. Darn! I was so hopeful.
  8. I'm having this issue as well. Pinch to zoom on my Apple Magic Trackpad 2 worked great (pretty sure) when I first fired up the trial a few days ago, but now it doesn't! It's quite annoying and anyone with a trackpad (or using on their Macbook or other laptop) will tell you this is the preferred way to zoom in and out. I used it consistently on Illustrator and Photoshop. Want to use here... but it's not workin!
  9. I'm using the trial to assess if we can switch from Photoshop and Illustrator to Affinity. So far this is the only issue we've encountered. Sometimes we need to produce Illustrator files for printers. I 2nd that: PLEASE get a proper export/save function to AI format. It imports them just great (as far as I can tell), why not export them as well?
