  1. Hi, I agree with you that these features are needed, and in the case of Affinity Publisher even crucial. Trying to convince you that this is not software for professionals and your requests are not needed is just wrong. I go through this every time I write a post on this forum. I'm a professional and Affinity Suite is my only graphic software at the moment. I draw in it, I design, I make books and I see no reason to pay for Adobe CC. Maybe apart from Adobe Font and Adobe Acrobat, which has all the missing features you're asking for. This is my temporary (I hope) workaround.
  2. The options I listed are basis for scaling a layer/group/selection without distorting it.
  3. Hello! I'd like to suggest a new type of layer overlay that will clip the selected layer (also a group or any other object from the layer list) to the alpha channel of the parent (and remove anything that goes beyond the borders of the alpha channel). Simple visual explanation of the idea: What do you think?
  4. No, the red rectangle, which was automatically rasterised during export, has an embedded icc profile. Which is wrong, it shouldn't have it. No, changing the simulation profile does not solve the problem, it's just there for preview purposes.
  5. A lot of questions. I recorded a videos of how to reproduce the bug: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kujfs3z8k1b7mz3/1.mp4?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/qleysoonr7pt34i/2.mp4?dl=0
  6. I'm glad my hack was useful I'll just add that the attached version gives the best results (imho) with 300dpi illustrations. While working with smaller resolutions it may require some tweaks.
  7. This one is critical bug. All elements that are rasterized during export to pdf (with the option "rasterise: unsupported properties" checked) have an ICC profile attached, despite the option "embed profiles" being unchecked. I have not found a workaround for this problem, except for editing the objects affected. EDIT: I'll also add that the same bug affects embedded external files.
  8. Hi, It's 2020 and there is still no no built-in spatter effect in affinity. Here's how I deal with it with help of live displacement map filter from APhoto. Just open the attached file (spatter_1.0.afdesign) in Designer or Photo and move the only layer to your project. Works quite well live, when active all the time while creating the illustration. However, it may not work for people who do not have an Affinity Photo license (I didn't check it).
  9. Going back to the subject. I'm missing a preview of the Affinity files in Dropbox. I keep all my stuff there. Is it more of a job for the Affinity team or the Dropbox?
  10. I crave for a scaling tool! The one with four options: ☑️ scale corners, ☑️ scale strokes, ☑️ scale effects, ☑️ scale font sizes. My temporary pain in the ass workaround is to paste an object into a separate file and embed it into a working document. Don't make me do this. Please, Maciek
  11. Hi Sean, I attach the file and I should add that I export with the "preserve accuracy" option checked gradient-bug.afdesign
  12. Affinity Designer 1.7.3 (Mac OS Mojave) The problem occurs when exporting to PSD format an object with a gradient filling and transparency set to below 100%. Affinity Designer graphics: Export result to a Photoshop file: Photoshop gradient layer is rasterised to 50% (this is where the problem is) + opacity set to 50% (properly) Could be a duplicate of this topic:
  13. Hi! Yes, same number of points - 4. It might actually be intended by developers, but it seems to me that the brushes should never be distorted. Deforming brushes is like deforming fonts Then maybe in addition to the 'scale with object' (=resize stroke size) option an additional 'transform with object' (=deform brush) option would be useful? Anyone? Apart from that, the third example is a completely random behavior for me.
  14. I don't know if the problem was ever discussed on the forum, I didn't find a similar topic. After deforming a shape with a transform box, brushes in "vector persona" mode are rendered incorrectly. See attachment for three examples: 1. draw an oval and define a brush -> everything ok. 2. draw a circle, define a brush and deform to an oval with a transform box -> distorted brush 3. draw a circle, define a brush, deform to an oval using the "transform box", select the "scale with object" option -> almost ok but still not correct. The problem does not occur when we manually move nodes to distort the object.
