  1. Hi all, I have installed my own AP in the work computer, and now I need to completely uninstall (serial, preferences, etc) it from it and preventing that when another co-worker install AP doesn't use my license. I'm on Win10 How this can be done? Cheers, Juan
  2. The object that you want to use as "smart object" save it as a PDF and then drag it on your open working file.
  3. In my case I get architectural drawings in PDF to put some colors, people, etc (to make it nice). Let's take a window for example, when I open the PDF, each line that makes the window is a curve layer in Affinity, now imagine if I have on one window 13 curve layers and multiply that by 10 or 15 windows, plus doors, plus walls, etc. Here is a little screenshot of how a raw PDF looks when I open it of couple of windows, one door and a fence: Now, when dealing with four or more facades of one building, navigating throughout the document, adding layers, zooming in and out it is almost impossible unless I merge all the curves. Additionally, having the curves allows me to change line width and/or color and still be able to scale the document without loosing the resolution since is a vector layer. Cheers, Juan
  4. There is a way to have some kind of smart objects in ap. When you drag and drop a pdf into your canvas, the layer will read (embedded document) or something like that. If you double click that layer a new document will open where you can paint over it and when you go back to your working file you will notice that the layer is updated. Cheers, Juan
  5. @Callum Just sent you a small sample file. Cheers, Juan
  6. Yep, but when dealing with more than 600 layers and in groups inside groups this workflow is almost prohibited. Cheers, Juan
  7. Let me try to replicate one of the files by myself keeping the hierarchy order for you.
  8. Hi Callum, Sadly all my files are under NDA and I can't share any of them. I think he wanted an specific file to see how the layers are nested and test it.
  9. Hi all, I often get PDF from clients which the vector layers are in many groups and sub groups, and what I need is to merge all the layers to only one curve layer, but I can't find a way to do it since when I select the top most group the Merge Curves option is greyed out. Is there a way to achieve this in a easy or smooth way? Cheers, Juan
  10. Too bad. I hope StudioLink supports photo and designer without publisher at some point.
  11. DrawPlus had this feature as well. Cheers, Juan
  12. Hi Chris B, Awesome, that did the trick. Thank you so much, it was driving me crazy . Cheers, Juan
  13. Hi all, I just noticed something weird and not consistent between inside the same application or any other software and is the alignment of the dropdown menu and sub menu. 1- For example, the dropdown menu it seems to be aligned to the right of the menu and it should be to the left: 2- Gets worse when opening sub menu which some open to the left although the arrow points to the right: In conclusion all the menu should be aligned to the left like any other software (maybe is not standard but is a best practice) and always the sub menu should open where the small arrow is (to the right) Quick mockup: Cheers, Juan
  14. I understand, but how then other software manage to keep the keymaps consistent? Because no matter what software do you use, shift key is used to add something to selection from excel cells to any 3D software. Cheers, Juan
  15. No problem , it's good that is on mac at least, now they have to do the same in Windows.
