  1. By default, all images are set to fit to the viewport when they are opened. For images that are smaller than the viewport, this leads to a zoom percentage greater than 100%. Personally, I usually prefer images not to be enlarged as it gives a wrong impression about the pixel-level quality. It prevents checking if the file is sharp, while not giving any real benefit since enlarging them does not provide any additional information, unlike in the case of larger-than-screen images. So fitting larger files by default is fine, but I find myself routinely pressing Cmd+1 every time I open a low-re
  2. There it goes, my inspiration that is, out of the window, and I lost it trying to change who knows what shortcut key... again. As a professional in video, animation, 3d and audio I have used many many applications over the years, and find Affinity package a real refreshing leap forward. However, I must admit that the preferences window across all three Affinity apps (Photo, Designer and Publisher) is one of the most useless I have ever encountered. I am not afraid to switch and learn applications and am ready to customize the new ones I learn to my own best practices, and the preferences
  3. I was unable to save a shortcut in Miscellaneous for the "set fill to black and white" shortcut. I could inset a value (in my case a "d or D" ) but it would disappear on closing regardless of whether I used "save" or just exited. I had previously created that shortcut in version 1.8 on my other PC, which is now running 1.9, so I exported to a file and then imported to my other PC and that shortcut now works in the second PC.
  4. two parts related to selecting objects... Suggestion: Within Affinity Designer Help, under "selecting objects", it states what modifier keys to use in selecting an object by dragging over only a portion of the object instead of having to drag marquee over the entire object. It took me a bit to realize that in order for this to work you first need to start the dragging of a maquee before clicking the Control key modifier. I might suggest adding to the below statement within help: As you drag a selection marquee, pressing the selects objects which are only partially covered by t
  5. Hello, I'm trying to redefine the keyboard shortcuts for brush resize (squadre brackes are a bit uncomfortable for me), it seems I have to redefine them separately for every different brush type. Is there a way to change the shortcuts for all brushes at once? I know I can also use Ctrl-Alt + mouse drag but it's very difficult for me dragging on one axis, so I often end up changing brush hardness too... Thank you in advance, Mario
  6. As I found in this thread, very useful feature of both designer and photo is off by design. And when it's off it works partially, just enough to work as broken. I understand there is group of people who wants this off (I imagine huge imported technical documentation or something like this) But as a user more focused on UI /UX /illustration with quite managable hierarchies I propose to turn on this by default. Just a thought.
  7. Hello, is there a possibility in the preferences, to define a black text as 100% black and not a mixture of all CMYK-Colors? I thought, that the tool: "Create text with blend gamma" is this feature, but it is not. Thank you for an answer Frank
  8. I was trying to add a hotkey to Smooth Curve, but can not find it listed in the Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts area. Can this please be added? This button... Also, it would be nice to be able to hotkey Close Curve and Reverse Curve too. Thank you
  9. I recently posted on the support forum, but there does not seem to be an option for this. So posting here now as a feature request. I would be super great if there a way to change the space or distance between the spreads/pages/pasteboard? Within InDesign preferences ( Preferences > Guides & Pasteboard > Pasteboard Options ) there is a way to set this. I can't seem to find this in Publisher. I always found this helpful because sometimes I don't want to see the other page and prefer to focus on the page I'm designing. Keep up the great work Affinity!
  10. If the option "Use Windows Ink for tablet input" is enabled, any jitter happening when tapping the tablet with the pen will be detected as a mouse drag instead of just a click, regardless of how small our hand/finger movement is. The most obvious consequence of this issue is this bug previously reported here: But it actually completely breaks the whole app workflow, since any selection you do with the pen will register both as a selection and also a move, flooding the History panel at twice the rate. It will also literally move any object by tiny amounts, breaking all alignments you
  11. Is there somewhere in the user preferences where I can configure the contextual tool bar to NOT revert back to its default settings whenever I close one document and open another? I was using the Clone tool and every time I opened a new document, it had defaulted back to "Current Layer" when I would prefer a different setting.

  13. There is a bug in the navigation of the "preferences" UI. The arrows "left" and "right" are not working properly. The "right" one is not working and the "left" one is taking you back to the main selection.
  14. Hi, love your product, and I think it works fine except for two specific problems I seem to be having: 1. The first is that I am unable to save my preferences in both Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer even with program restart or macbook restart. I can edit the values in preferences but and when closing the preferences pane it prompts me to restart the program but upon restarting Affinity all of the preferences have been reset to default. 2. Solving the preferences problem would likely solve my second problem, which is that when using Photo/Designer on a second screen (Duet Display Pro on
  15. With more complex Publisher documents, I sometimes experience crashes just moving about in the document.. I have a feeling that the crashes are related to settings in the Performance section of the Preferences, but I can't find anywhere a FAQ or a comprehensive discussion on what the different choices really mean for the stability and performance of the app. A few questions: In the Display section, which is more stable: Metal, OpenGL, OpenGL (Basic) or Software rendering? I suppose Metal is fastest, or am I wrong? Does clicking "Use only integrated GPU" affect anything, especi
  16. Under Preferences -> Performance are the two checkboxes Dither gradients and Use precise clipping. Using the help section won't help me: Dither gradients speed up the performance? So why should I leave it unchecked? Choose a clipping option implies that there is more than just a checkbox. Checked or unchecked what is the difference?
  17. I'm completely new to Affinity Design, so I'm not sure if this is a bug or if I'm doing something wrong. Everytime I work in AD I change some of the settings in the preferences panel and they seem to apply just fine, however when I restart my computer all the changes I've made to the preferences are gone. This is happening on both computers I'm currently using in the trial version of AD.
  18. I use Swiss-French Language. My Publisher version display in English. How to change the Language to French ? Thank you
  19. I'm trying to tidy up my portfolio for the summer, but everytime I open up a project in Affinity Designer and go to studio -> color -> and then try to make a color adjustment the software crashes. It does this mostly when I start to do things other than resizing and moving things around... so basically trying to perform anything further than that makes the software crash. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and updating (no updates are available) and still nothing works. Also, the layout of the screen seemed to have changed somehow during this process. When the application opens,
  20. Love Affinity Designer. Been using for years. One thing I find routinely irritating when designing UI screens is that the text tool doesn't switch off after deselecting a text layer. Consider the following scenario: 1. Using the Move Tool, you drill into a piece of text that's clipped inside a rectangle. 2. Affinity Designer understands you now want to edit the text tool and automatically switches to the Text Tool. 3. You finish editing the text and deselect it. Now you must manually switch back to the Move Tool to repeat Step #1. I wou
  21. I am well aware that I can set Margins when I created a new document and then change Margins after the fact by digging down into the Master page "Spread Properties." But is there a good reason why there is no conveniently accessible "Margins" command in the Document menu? That menu would be the most logical and intuitive place to find it. InDesign has "Margins and Columns..." in their Layout men, so anyone can easily find it without brainstorming or reading a manual, and I would argue a menu command is faster to access than (1) finding the Master, (2) right-clicking on the Master, (3) and th
  22. Affinity Photo please include a dedicated Preferences section in Help. I did a search for Preferences in the Help Menu and in Affinity Photo Help document and nothing matches.
  23. I tried to create some shortcuts for me. In the preferences tab I entered "Command + Alt + Y" for the "Join Curve" command – only to see that is already in use (little warning sign). After chosing a different shortcut I switched back to my document and found that my lines looked weird. I found out, that the "Command + Alt + Y" command changes the view to pixel mode. I guess this could be optimized.
