  1. Exactly! In Corel Draw, when you pick a color with the color picker tool, it picks the color and also whether is a RGB, CMYK, PANTONE color, etc.
  2. Hi. I just wanted to know if there are plans to fix this bug, as it affects the operation of a new feature in version 1.9: select by the same color.
  3. Thanks carl123 for the link. I can't afford a Mac right now Hopefully Serif can solve this problem in the near future. The workaround proposed in the post with multiple strokes is fine but it is not ideal because the line of the arrows is of a different thickness than the main line.
  4. Hi. Why does the size of the arrowheads depend on the thickness of the line? I would like to draw lines with a thickness of 0.2 pt, but even if you give a size of 500% to the arrowheads, they are very small. I am doing something wrong?
  5. I don't know, but maybe this could be related to this...
  6. Hi HenrikM. If you feel the application is not what you need its Ok. I think the transition you want is not called fade but blend (or something like that: in my language (spanish) it appears as "mezcla"). I attach you a video so you can see how it looks. Maybe that transition is not present in the free version. Regarding to the license server, I disconnected for a while and worked with the application and I had not problems. In the forum they say the Internet Connection is required to activate the software, and it just shouldn't do it again unless you change your hardware. By the way: the company is producing this kind of software since 1987. But again, you should work with a software you feel well. I hope you can find it. Greets! blend.mp4
  7. Hi HenrikM. Have you tried Softmaker Office (Presentations)? https://www.softmaker.com/en/softmaker-office-presentations - The licence can be bought in a one time purchase. - It's not dependant on the Internet. It runs on your computer. - The quality is pretty good (performance, compatibility with MS Office, etc.). I use it and I have no complains till now. Also, there is a free version (FreeOffice) with some limitations but it let you try its features before buy the complete version. Edit: The price of the complete version is very affordable too.
  8. This is a good suggestion. There is a studio panel Styles, where you can even create new styles for objects, but you can't edit they for update all objects where applied it. +1
  9. Thank you Walt. You are right, it only looses the type when you choose Print (Press Ready).
  10. Hi Pšenda. The nudge is the ability to move objects by selecting they and using the cursor keys to change they position (optionally plus SHIFT key, to modify the relative distance the object is moved). I attach an image of the section where you can configure these distances (normal and modified with SHIFT). I really would appreciate if one more modifier can be defined in preferences (with CTRL key). Thanks.
  11. The New Document Dialog doesn't remember anymore the type of document (version If I choose Print (press ready), the next time I create a new document, the type Print is selected.
  12. +1 for change the position of the guides through the Transform Panel +1 for move guides by selecting and using the cursor keys (nudge distance)
  13. Hi. I really find useful if you can configure two nudge distance modifiers in Preferences (like in Corel Draw). For example: Nudge Distance (normal): 1 mm Nudge Distance (Shift): 10 mm Nudge Distance (Ctrl): 0.1 mm
  14. I realized that if you apply a Pantone Color (global) to an object, and then try to pick with the eye dropper tool, when you apply it on other object, is not applied as a Pantone Color.
  15. Hi. I open this topic here because a few days ago I commented about a bug in the forum of the beta version of Affinity Designer, but I should open it here. The color picker tool has precision problems when selecting colors (especially in CMYK documents; in RGB documents it has them but they are less frequent). When you select a color and apply it, the HSL values change. I attach a video so you can see what I'm talking about. In the video I do two tests: the first with a CMYK document (press ready) and the second with an RGB document (print). In each of the tests I take two samples and apply them. In CMYK, it fails both times. In RGB only the second one fails. See the HSL values in Color Panel. Please, check this bug as it is present in all applications: Designer, Photo and Publisher. The color picker tool is a basic tool that should have precision when taking samples. It should pick the exact color, not just a similar one. Thanks! color_picker.mp4
  16. Hi _Bluebug. I have the same problem with color picker tool. Can't pick the exact color (HSL, CMYK, ...). I started this topic in the beta forum: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/87562-problem-with-dropper-tool-color-picker/ The bug is present in Photo, Designer and Publisher. The color picker tool is not accurate. It picks a similar color, but not exactly the same.
  17. I agree too. Yesterday Tom Schülke posted something similar to this: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/79462-i-wished-that/
