  1. Copy paste an image inside an image frame results always in the image being very distorted in some way or another. There seems not to be any logic behind this, because its proportions have not even any relation to the image it replaces inside that frame. This would be half as annoying, if there would exist a possibility somewhere to set an images original proportions back to 100% 100%. The only option one has, is to visually try to drag the image into normal proportions.

    Path to curve

    One can do that in such a case of course. But it's not about that. It's about intuitivity, easy of use – means to have functions there, where one would expect to find it, without having to consult a manual or help.

    It's also not helpful that "expand stroke" is not there in the context menu, when right-clicking on the path. Who goes looking for that in the "layer" menu...

    Path to curve

    Yes, CLC, exactly what I wanted. THANKS! Great releave. Strange that this is not working logically. Like with any shape, if there would be the same convert tool available, one could solve this intuitively.
  5. How do I convert a (thick) path into a curve, so that I can further edit the outlines?
  6. This is for all Affinity apps, actual version 1.7.3, but this bug is still here since the beginning: Copy/place an object into another document, the swatches that were set for it, are missing (not copied with it), even when they were global swatches.
  7. Designer 1.7.3 on OSX 10.14.6 After Copy a text, "paste style" (Stil übertragen) is not available. Clearly not working right.
  8. Good point, Joachim. I never looked into that block of text down there. I also noted later, that I had "line" in foreground in the color palette, instead of filling. This is generally a problem with Affinity, that difference is way too modest/undemonstrative by design. But the first thing that is GUI wise simply not working correctly, is that, like you say, the chosen color has to show and stay inside the style settings - that's the source of all confusion.
  9. Here is a screen recording showing how paragraph style color setting is not saved and not applied! ScreenRecorderProject2.mp4
  10. I have the same problem – and I reported that a long time ago. Now in 1.7.3 of PUBLISHER this seems still not working and this is a MAJOR problem. Setting a text paragraph style with a certain global document color swatch. When I check the text that style was applied to, it does NOT have that color swatch set for that text. When I go back into the settings of that style, there always comes up the CMYK panel set with that color, not the Swatch. Specially important in this case, because the Swatch is set to overprint. I can even set that Swatch in the style color setting, close that color setting window and when I click on that color rectangle again, again CMYK color panel shows up, not the Swatch. I can double click on that Swatch, it still is not locked in.

    Find Overflow Text

    View > Show Text Flow enable is one thing But the real problem is, you have still to go search manually through all the pages. Not very userfriendly when you just had to finish a 300 page work to a deadline, you finally get to export the whole thing within the last minutes and – DANG – a warning message pops up "overflow text", with no option whatsoever to point you to said text. In Indesign you would be able to solve that within seconds.
  12. No, that is not the problem. I can set it full black 100% opaque and still nothing is visible.
  13. Okay, I think I found the necessary setting. These two have to be activated. Without it, copy/moving the single pixel (left side) ends up like the two 2x2 block right to it. Only after activating these options, pixel stays how it originally was (copy on right side). This should be the standard setting for work in af Photo or else any movement is destructive.
  14. Bones, I see what you mean. In my example, there is no need to recalculate anything. Recalculation has to be done only, if you resize something or rotate in angles outside 90°. Otherwise, each pixel is just moved to the spot of another pixel. No antialias or any kind of change occurs. Of course if you try to move a pixel only a half-pixel step, this would need recalculation, what I suppose is happening here. But I do not see any setting how to prevent this. In a pixel app, usual behaviour would be only to work in full pixel-steps (= nondestructive).
