  1. Yes, virtually all fabrication companies request artwork files to be supplied in DXF format so they can send it to their CNC production machines. DXF is universal and supported by all platforms so it naturally the defacto format.
  2. If you've already coded for import, then coding for export (the more useful and critical of the two functions) must be relatively simple and fast .. Yes you can do this outside of the app but it's a phaf and not very slick .. It's like selling a pair of trainers without the laces .. seemingly unnecessary and leaves you feeling a little uncared for .. As disgruntled ex-Adobe customers we are adopting and investing in the AF platform and they do welcome user feedback ..you do understand AF wants to be better than Adobe right!? To clarify DXF export allows you to accurately send logos/artwork to production companies for signage, brand architecture and interior fit-outs ..DXF is the universal standard used by all fabrication companies. It is essential professional workflow. > love the trolling comment lmao
  3. Errr.. appreciate your comments but my tone is purposefully playful ..I am a customer after all and I've purchased the full set of AF apps twice. AF is a fantastic alternative to Adobe's absurd price. This is absolutely not in dispute and we love AF for that reason. However, so many users have been asking for this incredibly simple function for so long - we thought from the marketing this was a stated feature in v2. It's like the coders/management either misunderstood or overlooked we were specifically asking for 'export'. To truly be the Adobe killer, we all want, these very basic functions must be included. Please AF 🙏
  4. Thousands of your users have been asking for DXF Export in Designer for years ..v2 has been released with import only! ..why is this!??? EXPORT functionality is by far the most useful and necessary workflow for 2D & 3D professionals ..I'm dying over here ..or is this some kind of trick?
  5. If Affinity Designer is going to truly compete with Adobe Illustrator it MUST include the VERY BASIC but ESSENTIAL functions: SELECT SIMILAR and DXF EXPORT. I still cannot believe this program does not have these features. SSSSoooooooooo many of your customers have requested it, why are you ignoring them!??? Writing the code for these features will be child's play for you surely!!!???? TIME TO GET SERIOUS AFFINITY - include these features and then clean up, it's a WIN-WIN!
  6. I'm dying here!!! Please, please, please can we have DXF export for Designer? This is absolutely fundamental to professional workflow..
  7. We're hitting 2020 and still no DXF export!? ..this feature is crucial for those that have to convert brand logos into 3D CAD ..there are many of us. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ..it can't be that difficult to write the code into the app surely!?
  8. Ah! Excellent!! I didn't realise you could input percentages into those fields, I thought they were millimetres only - I've just tried that out and it also works with multiple objects at the same time ..that's extremely helpful thank you very much!
  9. Hi Chris, the transform palette options in Publisher are quite basic, I cannot see a percentage value - this is much more useful when scaling objects which regularly comes up in our workflow. For example: if you have multiple images of different dimensions and/or formats and you want to scale them all to say 50% or 25% of their original size - please see attached screen grab from Indesign to explain this. Nearly all design software both 2D and 3D has a scale factor function in either 'percentage' or decimal value 'scale up or down by a factor of 1.5 or 0.5' ..surely Publisher has this and I'm just not seeing it!?
  10. Hello, is there a tool or method to accurately control the scaling of 'picture frame content', 'images' and 'graphic elements' in Publisher using percentage % values? ( ..as per Indesign) - many thanks
  11. Thank you very much! ..very surprising such a basic feature isn't in there yet, fingers crossed it happens soon
  12. Hi, how do you create a hyperlink - live text link to a URL in Publisher - I cannot find a menu selction for this.. Many thanks
  13. Hello, Once I've selected 'scale to min fit' in properties I'd like to then select 'fit frame to contents' - as I do in Indesign - is there a Publisher equivalent of this important workflow feature? Many thanks Dan
