  1. Is there a way to handpick a certain artboard that is used as a thumbnail for the templates? I work with artboards... a lot. And the previews in the File=>New dialogue are really small.. -thx, Dave
  2. Hey, I have a issue that was in the past DESIGNER and still in the new update. I have a document i always reuse. 2 art boards. One is a wide format for social media , the other square. I change the content and also rename the art boards for output , so they have the correct name. When i rename the art board and switch to slice module, the art boards have the old name before i rename them. So I have to rename them twice. Anyway to get this fixed? Thanks Gary
  3. Do I make wrong way, or really cant handle Photoshop artboards any affinity product in 2023??? When I open a very simpe PSD file (it has 5 artobard and one-one image in it) only put the 5 images one huge artobard. Photo and Designer too.
  4. I often resize artboards to match new variations in content, e.g. adjust artboard height after creating a design version which is bigger or more compact. Would be great if it was possible to quickly adjust the size of the artboard to perfectly match the content.
  5. At 3:59 in this Designer video from Affinity, there are 2 dots in the lower right corner when resizing multiple Artboards. I can't seem to replicate this. Is there any setting not mentioned in video that needs to be enabled? Still frame: Thanks.
  6. I’ve encountered this multiple times when trying to group objects inside an art board. The only way I’ve been able to solve this is by moving them outside the art board before grouping. What’s going on?? iPad Pro 3rd gen 11in FullSizeRender.mov
  7. A number of users have had the same problem I had with Pixel Persona when seeking to export multiple artboards at once. Each exported image was slightly out of line leaving a small gap on one or two sides of the image that had not been there previously. When zooming in within Pixel Persona, it became clear that the frame of each artboard/slice was slightly out of line with each artboard and could not be repositioned correctly since the frame jumps to the next pixel when it is moved within Pixel Persona. It's as if the artboard's frame had shifted to the nearest pixel. I came across a temporary solution: To align each artboard with one another so they are touching before converting the artboards to slices. However, this is not ideal for every project. Please ensure that the exact artboard area is converted into a slice irrespective of its position on the main document. Thanks! Asa.
  8. There are semi transparent borders arround any artboard. It's visible even after exporting to raster. It's visible on non-rasterised pdf as white line. I have printer with margins, so I can't check if it's visible after printing. I'm afraid that when I'm going to make printable things for clients, it's going to look like lack of extended layers to the bleed (which I've done.)
  9. I just recently switched to affinity designer. I'm loving everything so far. Except for the fact that it is so complicated to export multiple artboard. I have to make all this - time consuming stuff, like grouping all the contents of the artboard, and slice each artboard in order to export it individually. Such a frustrating process.
  10. Using the trash button on the left side or with a long press works correctly with artboards filled with content but doesn't work with empty ones. The only way to delete is through the layer menu.
  11. When I set margins for my document it works just fine right up until I convert my document into an artboard. Then when you drag the numbers up they snap right back to 0 and show no preview. Current workaround is to either create a completely new document and ban myself from clicking the artboard button or create manual margins using invisible boxes while crying softly.
  12. Hi All, I am working with multiple artboards; I moved some around, and now some of the artboards are blank, but the objects are still showing: I'm not sure what to do - the objects are checked. I've tried bringing to front - nothing happens. I double click on the object and it zooms in to a blank box with the lines around the object: I'm not sure what to do next. Thanks for any help! Brian
  13. Trying to create this very tiny sticker for a label. The sticker should be 0.7x0.1” tried creating an art board and separate document with those dimensions and as you can see they are clearly not the same but affinity is telling me they’re the same size. What’s the fix? IMG_0730.MOV
  14. Would be great if the team at Affinity would add a feature that enables us to sort out artboards like HOW MANY IN A ROW or a COLUMN. Also if an artboard is Numbered at the end it would be good for it automatically increment numbers when artboard duplicates are created.
  15. Working with Web design i often need to eport several different png graphics ... i would like to know if there is a way to click/select an object to create atutomatically artboards or slices in the precise dimenson of the object/group, so when i export a PNG file the image does not leaves a gap or borders. Is there a way to do this?
  16. Is there a way to export all artboards at once as INDIVIDUAL JPGs or PNGs without having to go back and re-export over and over for each artboard?
  17. I have imported a Designer file (with two art-boards) into another designer file (all on iPad) but can not find a way to display the art-board I want. I thought it would be obvious but there seems to be no selection box anywhere. Is it even possible to do this? Can you specify which art-board to display on import somewhere/how? Why does the original file not update in the host file (resorted to duplicating the document and deleting other art-board) after editing? Simple feature just can’t see it anywhere.
  18. Hi all, our office switched from Adobe Illustrator to Affinity Designer recently. We have some questions about the layers and artboards function. 1. We struggle with the artboard function which is connected with layers. We need global layers with recurring elements (like logo, client, etc.) which we can switch on/off and lock easy on one layer and not individually on every single artboard. We suceeded in creating these global layers, but if you move the artboard these global layers are not moved with the artboard. Why??? 2. Every new element we create is automatically moved to the artboard on which the element is created instead of a defined global layer. So you have a lot of moving of elements afterwards... Is it possible to detach the artboard and layer function like in Illustrator??? Attached is a Screenshot with global layer (Ebenen) and the artboards. Thanks a lot and I hope someone can help!
  19. I am having difficulties trying to see if this is possible, so I am wanting to see if someone can help me. I am working on a design that requires duplicate of the same exact design on Affinity Designer. Is there a way to create a clone of an artboard and use it in a different artboard? The clone would be able to change whenever there is a change in the original artboard. For example, let say my design has 2 of the same exact coins and so I draw a coin and add it into a different artboard like a sticker. Later I realize I would like to change the design of the coin, so all I would have to do is change the original artboard and it will update it in my main design. Any help would be appreciated!
  20. Hi everyone. For some reason, moving even a single artboard around with a couple of shapes and text layers in it is pretty slow and lags a lot. My system specs are the following: Intel Core i9-9900K, AMD RX 580 8GB, 32GB RAM, NVMe SSD 512GB, running macOS Catalina 10.15.7 and Affinity 1.10.1. Metal acceleration is fully supported and I’m getting good numbers in all kind of benchmarks and other apps, but artboards in Affinity Designer seem to be very slow for me. Tried all settings, Metal, OpenGL, OpenGL (Basic). Metal seems to be the fastest out of all (as it should be I suppose), but still not acceptably fast. It feels like 5-10 fps which is strange to me. Situation shown on video became even worse when moving group of artboards. I should mention that any other actions I do in Affinity Designer are remarkably fast and smooth (after many years of using Adobe apps). Color corrections, transforms, vector tools all of these are just flying. But artboards... Here’s a quick screen recording I made. You can also see detailed CPU and GPU load during performing this operation. I’m also attaching project file. Appreciate your thoughts and opinions. Artboards.mov Performance Analysis.afdesign
  21. Only thing missing now is the option to change the background color of the pasteboard! Light grey doesn't have enough contrast against the white, even though that will be filled with color, shapes, etc. Thanks!!
  22. I miss some features when creating icons for websites: Ability to set CSS classes or option to use the layer name as class instead of id Option to save SVGs with style attributes instead of inline CSS (then you don't have to use "!important" all over the place to change colors) Don't write a "rect" element in SVGs for the artboard if the artboard has no background color Option to automatically round artboard position and size because decimals led to weird problems for me in the past (like the exported file having the wrong size because the position was a decimal) Option to optimize SVGs. I use SVGO at the moment but it's not easy to set it up so that it preserves IDs or classes
  23. Affinity Designer Version iPad Pro 12,9 inch first generation, iOS 12.3.1 I added screen recordings for clarity. Problem 1: Margin and bleed not working for artboards Margins and bleed work perfect for documents that do not use artboards, but when I convert it to an artboard using "Insert Artboard" it stops working. Same goes for creating a document and enabling the option "Create Artboard". Bleed still shows, but changing the values for Left, Right, Top or Bottom doesn't change the bleed. When opening the menu again the values are back to what they were before using "Insert Artboard". Margins also don't work, it goes back to Left 0.0 Right 0.0 Top 0.0 and Bottom 0.0. Trying to change this makes it immediately jump back to 0.0. margin_bleed_artboard.MP4 Problem 2: "Check Spelling While Typing" option is always on when loading any document check_spelling_while_typing.MP4 Problem 3: Limited selection of presets for inserting artboards in an open document It looks like the artboard presets of the category "Device". However, the bottom four options are also missing: Kindle Fire HD 7, Kindle Fire HD 8.9, Galaxy S5 and Surface Pro 2. There is an option missing for selecting the category like when creating a new document. It seems that this simply has been overlooked. insert_artboard.MP4
  24. I have two artboards (one is a front cover and one a back cover) in an Affinity Designer file. I'm trying to place both of them separately in Affinity Publisher. Can this be done or do they need to be two separate AD files? Thanks
