  1. Jesus how many years has this been going on? I was also one of the first to buy Designer to support Serif and to this day the software is still unusable for me without isolation mode for groups. Some people with a different workflow are presumptuous enough to think that since this is not a big deal for them it shouldn't be for others. This is a deal breaker for a lot of users that have a different workflow and that maybe are not doing the same type of work.
  2. Hey MEB As mentioned many times in this thread over the years, this feature is essential. It's not a nice-to-have. Designer is basically unusable for some people without being able to work properly with groups. How many of those "million" feature requests make the software unusable for your paying customers? This should be the number one priority on your roadmap, and it's not even there.
  3. @Mountainking that's not really isolation mode but hiding other layers. At this point I have lost all faith in Designer. Even if this feature has been asked by many users, for years, it's not even in the roadmap. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/842-affinity-designer-feature-roadmap/ Reading the roadmap thread it seems all progress in Designer is stalled. What a shame, it was a promising project.
  4. Yes, but the point of groups is precisely not having to deal with the layers pane which is a waste of time. Why spend a few seconds looking for a layer in a long list when you can just double click on the group that is right in front of you?
  5. Hey Affinity, could we get a real answer on the status of this?
  6. When is isolation mode going to be implemented? Selecting stuff on the layer panes is a waste of time.

  9. Working with layers is extremely tedious. Working with groups and isolation mode is 10x faster. You can edit a group in isolation mode with literally 1 double click. No need to use shortcuts, modifiers, or waste time in the layers panel. I'm still amazed isolation mode is not in the roadmap. I've been using vector software since Corel Draw 4 (back in the 90s) and isolation mode is by far one of the most useful features ever introduced in the vector workflow.
  10. I agree with the others. This is as essential as being able to create a group. I simply can't use Designer without this.
  11. This is super handy. Copy an image from anywhere (website, other design software, Finder, etc) then create a new document and have the dimensions of this new document based on the image that resides in the clipboard. I use this all the time in Photoshop.
  12. Hey @MEB are selection transforms planned for the future or actively being developed? This is an essential feature and the workarounds suggested here seem overly complicated for what should be a very basic task. Even GIMP has selection transforms.
