    Window Zoom

    Please consider adding this to the list of interface improvements... You can't imagine the number of clicks and manual resizing one has to do without this feature. Sometimes I open 10-15 images on Affinity photo to compare and see them all the same time, but have to manually resize all the windows.... Now that i'm using Affinity every day (instead of Photoshop) as my main image program, I think this would be my favorite thing to add to the list..... (+ Sticky crop settings..) Everything else is working ok.... thanks

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta (

    All this little fixes and features for 1.7 look great... One question, though.. will this be only available as final release when you launch Publisher...? Is the release of all three apps now dependent of each other...? Wouldn't mind getting Photo and Designer 1.7 sooner and wait a little bit more for the Publisher release...
  3. Haven't downloaded the latest beta since I'm still waiting for Affinity to add Sticky settings to the crop tool... I just read the beta release notes before I hit the download button... But from reading this thread, it looks like the programmers are overthinking and making the crop tool more complicated than this simple (but important) function should be....
  4. A tip that may work for some (And if you are in a Mac): PDF Expert for Mac on sale $20.00 USD (down from $80) . The sale should last a little longer but I've seen it come and go in the past couple of months. ( I bought in the last sale) Nice utility. You can add hyperlinks there. (You could view it as an add on). https://deals.x-mirage.com/sales/pdf-expert-for-mac-2 I know it costs extra and It's not really integrated but the plus is that you can add links to PDFs created in both Designer and Publisher and not wait for Affinity to add this. It could be months or years as we all know. I personally found it useful , hope somebody else benefits from the tip. Regards, fjv
  5. Being looking to do this for a while in Affinity Photo ! A quick way to copy and paste an objects effects (Without creating a Style as a step between) If I haven't read this thread... I wouldn't have found it. So selecting the object with the style and choosing "copy" (while right clicking) makes this happen... Like other have commented I would suggest these changes: 1) When you right click an object rename the "copy" for "Copy Layer Effects" . For me the "copy" options means I'm copying the object (not the effect) 2) Once the effect is copied to the clipboard add the ability to have a "Paste Layer Effects" option appear when you right click on another object. 3) The "Paste FX"in the Edit menu is good to have... but adding the other options would really be great. Right now we are copying and pasting the effects in two completely different areas of the interface... P.D. Also the "Layers Effects..." right click option could be renamed "Edit Layer Effects" and be placed right under the "Paste Layer Effects" Thanks ! fjv
  6. Thanks Rocketdrive. It's not perfect but you are right; this is the work around for now and useful in some cases.
  7. Just ran into this issue also. Please a +1 to add this functionality. Have the color picker be able to pick up Pantone colors. thanks
  8. This point has been asked for a LOT of time by different users..... over 2+ years... Downloaded the 1.7 beta yesterday and still the crop ratio is not remembered... Not really sure if it's hard to implement, they have forgotten about it or what's the issue with this. Would love to see it implemented in this next release or at least a note on the developers if they acknowledge this issue.

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta (

    Thanks for the work. Like the new Crop tool . It works much better now seeing the original image size as reference. Just to make it complete please don't forget to add the "sticky" setting to the Crop Mode. It still reverts to "Unconstrained" EVERY single time you use it.... PLEASE.... fjv
  10. Thank you for the suggestion Aammppaa. I tried these but in this case the erase white paper doesn't help since my 3D render is not created with an all white background. It's part of a complicated render. I have an alpha mask/buffer which is created in the 3d package and helps me isolate the object. The problem is that little extra color fringe that I get when I extract the selection.... It need to be very precise because of the Ambient oclussion drop shadow I have. Deffinitetly like Metin comments we don't seem to have a similar Remove White/Black matte in A Photo... I can manually blur the edges a little bit and that helps.. but Just wanted to see if there was another solution I was missing . thanks
  11. Do we have something similar in Affinity Photo...? I have some 3D renders that I created in Cinema 4D. I have an object mask/channel (created in Cinema) to cut it out. I want to save the render with transparency so they can change the background color easily, but I have a little color fringe in the borders. With Photoshop I can use the "defringe" or "remove white matte" option from the Matting menu and fix it with one click. In Affinity Photo i tried using the defringe filter but it's not working, I guess it's not the same definition. Is there a similar tool we can use in Affinity Photo? Thanks
  12. Yes.. please... These options are essential to experiment with! ( Specially for Logo Design). Please consider these tools for the next Affinity Designer 1.7 update... or even for the next 2.0 paid update (hopefully not too far away) Group a bunch of objects and apply a live distortion effect. Something like this is easy in Illustrator ( takes a few second to set up) and you can experiment with the options until you are happy with the results, and even change them if you need them on the fly. I'm guessing to do it in Designer you would need to draw each variation manually.... ! imagine that...
  13. Thank you very much Seneca! Found it now and works as expected. Great. Didn't know we had that "more" button at the pdf export! I'm guessing we will get the "visual" bleed in the workspace in Designer in the next 1.7 update?
