  1. Is there any way of reproducing the layout of an artboard so that I can produce a 24 page document without having to set up the margins and guides on each artboard?
  2. I think guides should be visible even if they are outside of canvas/artboards
  3. Vertical Guides are being created in other artboards,... and i can't move them. Can't change position value. This is a recorrent bug in other tools envolving guides, column, margins.
  4. -PREAMBLE- I'm still not very happy about affinity's alt-dragging behaviour, where you have to decide BEFORE pressing the mouse, if you want to duplicate. From ID or AI I'm used to drag, and then think of all the modifier-keys to hold... But what's very annoying is that things don't snap to my guides anymore, while in alt-dragging mode. This has to be a bug, i'm sure!
  5. - The possibility to rotate and delete the guides directly from the art board by click and delete. (at the moment i can only deleat a guide if i drag it out from the art board, and this is annoying!). Also, if not asking too much, convert a draw object into a guide. (like old FreeHand used to do...) - The possibility to change type case (Lower / upper). - Perspective distortion tool!
  6. Is there a way to make a diagonal guide? I am doing some drawing in perspective and would like to snap to vanishing guideline. I was wanting to recreate a photograph I took of a glass walled office building. Part of that was to accurately scale the windows and I was using a trick with right triangles, the hypotenuse and adjacent sides, so I wanted a snap to the vanishing line; there may be an easier way to do it, but it seems to work.
  7. Has anyone of you lovely people experienced issues with guides? They used to work ok - a bit buggy, but now they're completely broken. If anyone has a hack to unlock artboard guides on ipad pro I'd be so grateful! When I navigate to guides>show guides I can't move any of the existing guides, the only function I can perform is to add new guides - but even though I can add guides, these cannot be moved by hand/apple pencil (only by adjusting coordinates). Many thanks.
  8. Hi when I add a guide I can just about see it in the image window, wish it was possible to alter colour and thickness!, but I can't see it in the rest of the app window or in the ruler bar so it is mega difficult to lign up exaxctly where required. PSElements is fine for this. Am I doing something wrong or have I missed a setting or selection somewhere? cheers.....
  9. Hello, how do I turn on the smart/audio guides like you get in photoshop? If you don't know what I am talking about, check the adobe link below: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/how-to/align-space-objects.html
  10. A great feature I came to appreciate in other vector editors when doing perspective drawings or circular arrangements are slanted guides. In Designer, there are no slanted guides but the grid helps out. However, a full grid is not always needed. The workaround I use, is to make a "Guides"-Layer and put some lines on it as guides. With object snapping, these lines can be used as guides. Still, it would be nice to have an additional panel to set up slanted guides. Below a snippet from a program with slanted guides.
  11. I haven't been able to find any way to create diagonal guides, despite all of the community feedback. Is this something that will be implemented in the next release?
  12. Win 7, Publisher 17.0.277 I find placing guides via the guide manager impossible on a double-page spread because the guideline measurements do not relate to the zero marks on the rulers if the zeros have been offset from the top left-hand corner. This really bad when placing vertical guides relative to the vertical centre line in the middle of a two-page spread. A guide supposed to be +5" to the right of the centre line actually ends up 5" from the left-hand side of the left page, even though the x-zero mark on the ruler is in the dead centre of the double-page spread. In other words, it ends up -3.5" (i.e. to the left) from the centre line. Zeros.docx
  13. You should be able to create guides with any tool selected, at least any drawing tool. Not just the move tool.
  14. When setting up master pages I come to a point where I have so much guides that I am starting to get confused which guid was for what... For picture, textframes, etc. A possibility to assign different colors to guides with different meanings would be helpful to keep the orientation. e.g. all blue guides are for image alignment, red is for textframes, yellow for other design elements etc. Would it be possible to assign colors to guides? Is it possible to use geometric shapes as guides? Rectangular, triangular, circular etc? Or non-vertical, non-horizontal? E.g. I would like to have a 45° textframe stripe on a top corner of some pages, but not of all. Or a round bubble at a certain position of some pages, not of all... I think guides from geometric shapes would also help to keep the screen clean of "unnecessary" guides lines in some cases, as often I don´t need the whole vertical or horizontal line over both facing pages. I think also for geometric shape guides assigning different color would help for better overview. Maybe this feature is already included and I just did not find it?
  15. When I create guides in my photo to crop to, I notice they move after the crop. Because of that, I can't tell how accurate the crop was nor are the guides useful anymore. I would like to see the guides remain exactly where they were in relation to elements withing the photo. I would also appreciate if there was a "crop to selection" option.
  16. View/Guides Manager miss the feature to set different values for horizontal and vertical gutter. Another nice feature would be to create "normal" guides from the column guides. Thanks, Christian
  17. Hello It would be very useful if as others have requested, Guides could be rotated on the page. Setting any point along the guide as the point of rotation? Also is the Zero points on the Horizontal and/or Vertical rulers/scale could be moved by dragging the present static point from the top left corner. Guide lines extending to the rulers/scale. Could the actual position of guide be indicated by a R click, rather than the clumsier, less accurate drag or the slightly more fiddly Guides Manager? Richard
  18. Hello, I trust all is well. First let me say I love the Affinity eco-system. It's by far the best. Quick question, can guides usage on the canvas be added as a feature. I'm sure like myself a lot user create content on the canvas prior to adding it to their final creation — having access to the guides would truly be a great asset when aligning elements. Please add. Once again a BIG THANKS goes out to the Affinity team for all the hard work on a truly great software bundle.
  19. I am not sure if this is the right place for my post. I started doing design work with Photoshop and Freehand and later, when Adobe first bought and subsequently killed Freehand, with Illustrator. A few months ago I played around with Designer and Photo on both, an iMac and an iPad, and liked the experience. Most of all I liked that finally someone tried to come up with an alternative to Adobe. Sadly, since I decided to try and do a real paying design job on an iPad Pro using Designer and Photo my experience has been quite frustrating. Rather than doing actual design I had to search forums for the most basic (in my opion) features. Changing units from pt to mm? “Resize” in my opinion is a quite unlikely spot. Want pagerulers? No, this feature hasn’t made its way to the iPad yet. I am aware that I am surely stuck in the Adobe logic of where I expect to find certain functions and tools and how I expect them to operate but I am most certainly not the only one. As things stand right now with every step I want to make design wise I have to expect it to either not work or only after a considerable amount of time in the forums, this, simply, isn’t an option and step by step it takes me closer to goodbye Affinity and a sad hello Illustrator. In terms of actually asking something: - Rulers: really (really?) still not implemented in both iPad apps? - Guides: is there way to add guides to a specific artboard at a desired position without mathematical shenanigans? How can I edit and remove specific guides?
  20. Hi, I suppose this feature is already asked, but I can't located it. Anyway, there is need for such a default layer created automatically with any new document where we can easily control if they are shown/hidden, printable/unprintable, locked/unlocked... or simply drag an object to this layer to act as a guide.
  21. I would very much like to set column guides on master pages in the spread setup rather than by placing guides by hand on the Master Page. Most DTP app offer this, I know this is a beta and not everything can get done at once but I think the ability to set a master as 2 or 3 or whatever columns with a defined gutter is a fairly essential feature for most users. Also I would like to have a visible bleed guide. Bleed can be set which is great but I like to see a visible guide on the page while working.
  22. Hey guys will it be possible in the near future to change the color of the guide lines? This will help a lot at work. :)
  23. The "lock guides" button disappeared since the latest beta. I really miss the function!!!!!!! Of course you could place your guides in a Master page. But if you need different guides for different pages of a brochure, you would have to set up many master pages, what makes no sense, I think. At present version, you can place guides for the Page. But now you can't lock them anymore. That's rater not so good. It would be a better solution if you would be able to place guides in a layer. So, who wants, could lock the layer(s) in which the guides are placed. (That is how it is soved in InDesign and it's really helpful.)
  24. Allow the creation of what could be called, "Smart Guides". The difference with regular guides is iff something is 'snapped' to this new type of guide when the guide moves any snapped object(s) would move with the guide.
  25. Is there a way to create custom guides that are at angles or can a regular object line or shape be converted into a guide?
