  1. I think this is a bug. I could not locate, using forum and Google searches, any previous reports of this. The text parts and whole text line, disappears when aligning using the Align in the Toolbar. Steps to Recreate Create new document. Size, DPI, is immaterial. Using the Artistic Text Tool, type some text. Using the Align tool in the toolbar, choose to Align to Center, then Align to Middle of Spread. Part of and then the whole text line disappears. It seems like it's masked. However I'm thinking it might be a redraw issue. I can move the text and it appears. Attached screen recording showing this in Designer. I've also tested this in Photo with the same results. 2022-03-11 12-51-53.mp4
  2. Dear Affinity experts, I have to do the following: I have two images, camera location and scene is the same. One is a photo and the other one is a still image from a video. Unfortunately size and cropping are not the same. Therefore I have to align the photo so that it matches the still exactly. I did this by placing both in two different layers, make the upper one semi transparent and then adjust size and position of the photo by dragging the handles. This does work, however it's fairly tricky: When I drag the left handle and adjust a detail at the left and then drag the right handle and adjust at the right, the left detail is affected either and I have to perform the procedure recursively until everything is matching. My question is: Is there a procedure or trick to make this easier? Best regards - Ulrich
  3. Is it possible in Designer to align a group of objects (in my case images) to a path (in my case a circle)? And is it possible to then set the orientation of those objects either in their normal way (in my case upright) or aligned to the path, meaning rotated according to the "angle" of the path?
  4. The Auto Distribute options under Arrange panel is disabled. I am not sure if I am doing something wrong, or if this is a bug. How do I enable it? I am using the free trial v1.4 i believe on OS X 10.11.3. Kindly help.
  5. Hello, is it possible to automatically align layers or photos? For example if I have 3 photos with 3 different exposures which I shot handhold, so the photos differ slightly. Is there a way to align the photos? There doesn't seem to be the possibility to make an HDR, will it be implemented in the future?
  6. Someone can help? I'd really appreciate! Photoshop: select all layers to be aligned Edit / Auto-Align-Layers Affinity Photo: select all layers to be aligned nothing found... 🤔 Cheers, Roland
  7. Hi! I tried to create a numbered list in Publisher and wanted the numbers to be aligned to the right, while the following text is still aligned to the left, because it would look more aesthetic. But it seems not to work. I think the option "Tab Stopp right alignment" (screenshot) should do this, but it doesn't have any effect. By the way, "align right" was predefined. But none of the three options shows any effect. There are already two threads about this issue, as far as I can see: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/92543-does-anyone-have-a-good-way-to-do-‘fly-out-numbering’-in-publisher/&tab=comments#comment-492183 and https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/139881-align-numbers-in-numbered-lists/ My version of Publisher is 1.9.2.1035 on Windows 10.
  8. If a text is Bottom Aligned, by default, it is placed exactly on the line/outline of the selected area. This not happens when the same text is Top Aligned. How to perfectly align text to the top? text is Bottom Aligned here text is Top Aligned HOW TO ELIMINATE THIS GAP?
  9. The Stacking option under File->New Stack etc. is great, what I really wish for though, would be the option to do this with already loaded layers and also the stacking tool taking any masking into account. This is vital when stacking milkyway images, since it usually aligns to the foreground and not to the stars, which can be compensated for when you mask out the foreground. Cheers
  10. Hi there, I´m missing the 'distribute with spacing' function from InDesign. I did not found a workaround for Publisher to distribute objects with no space. Are there any plans to realized that in upcoming versions? Thanks for your great work! Bekim
  11. Hello! I've been trying to use Affinity Photo for a while (trying to switch from Photoshop I've been using for many years), and I noticed that there are some features missing. But I will only ask you to add this one, since not having it in the editor is terribly annoying. Please add the ability to align objects/layers to Selection Frame. Like so: In this example, the objects are aligned to the center of Selection Frame. Having this feature (aligning to Selection Frame) would help a lot! This is how "align to selection" works in Photoshop, and sadly doesn't in Affinity.
  12. Hello everybody, before I start to decribe my problem I want to say thanks, that it is possible at all to work with such precision, it does really make a difference to the quality of the work I produce and it's exactly the reason why I switched to working with the Affinity Apps! Now here's the problem: I am currently working with a high-precision document where the decimal places for unit types are set to level 6. In this document I have created a rectangular grid, which is also finely calculated with 6 decimal places. If I now want to align objects to this grid, I run into a problem with the rendering of the grid. The objects do not snap in the middle of the grid line, but somewhere on the side of the line. However, this becomes visible only at an extreme magnification. The problem is, if I place objects with the size of a grid unit directly underneath each other, at some point they will no longer lie on the grid, because this minimal shift causes the objects to protrude further and further beyond the grid lines. On top of that some other questions arise. When I zoom to the maximum magnification everywitng I created turns white but what I believe to be the actual grid line (I did not create any guide lines) becomes visible in blue (however this is only true for the vertical grid line). Yet it is not possible to align objecty perfectly with this grid line either. And as you can see the grid lines don't have the same width.This is not really an issue if the objects snap correctly but it looks like it could be related to this problem. In used Metal as a render engine. I also tried OpenGL, but the problem was not solved. I attached some screenshots (sorry for the ugly colored text) and a demo file so you can recreate the problem. So that leaves me with the question, is there anything I can do? If not it would be very important for me to have this problem fixed, since my work depends on this. Thanks in advance.

  13. Hi, Does anyone know how I can align a nested object to it's parent's centre? For example I can align two objects that are not nested by selecting them both and setting align to "selection bounds" but I i want to align to the object that I am "inside of" this doesn't work...
  14. I *think* it may be to do with optical alignment but I can't work it out. Any ideas?
  15. Hi, I just purchased your complete Affinity series and am really happy with it so far. Although I just started working with it yesterday But I already encountered some small problems I can't solve myself. My most important question so far is about the alignment function. As a previous Adobe user I am used to be able to align two objects while one is staying in place. Using Affinity Designer I can't find a way to do that. Whenever I want to align two or more objects they all move and meet up in "the middle". With Adobe I was able to select multiple objects, then release the [Shift]-Key and klick on one of the selected objects. That object would then stay in it's place while all the other selected objects would align with it after clicking one of the [align]-buttons. Is there a way to do the same thing in Affinity Designer? Thank you very much in advance. Cheers, Michael
  16. Hello world, Does anyone know how to align a these circles on a path or stroke ? Thank you
  17. Hello Affinity, With the help of @Old Bruce I managed to copy circles on a path, and align the circles using the text tool. It is not as user-friendly to modify the space of the circles using the characters tracking. It is like a sort of a hack way to aligning shapes to paths. I thought it would be nice to add a separate feature for aligning shapes on paths. Also add the pattern feature too, so we don't manually repeat patterns. I know I ask too much but you guys are awesome. Thank you, text-path-align.afdesign
  18. Each Affinity software has alignment option which is great. But it'd be much better if we can have a separate panel for it which we can dock anywhere as we wish. Currently we've to click on the alignment icon each and every time when we need it, and that's kind of boring. What do you think friends?
  19. Hi, I've been working with Affinity Designer for a few weeks now. Coming from Adobe Suite CS6 there's is a lot I like about Affinity Designer, but also a few things that would make working in AD just that little bit better. One of those things is that Align and Distribute doesn't have its own panel. Maybe it Align and Distribute could be combined with the Transform panel (see image) ... or just could have a panel on it own. greetings, Ivo
  20. First of all, I find affinity designer awesome and I cannot wait to be able to completely switch from the bloated, overprice 'mud brick' rental packages. However for this to happen, I would need to have better vector graph alignment tools. In particular, I would need to be able to select a 'key object' that stays put while the other objects are aligned relative to the key object. Also, it would be great if one could select multiple nodes (inkl. a key node) and align them. The snapping function works great but sometimes it is just not enough... Anything like this planned anytime soon? Thanks Lars
  21. Dear support, I have installed AfD 1.8.3 and found out that if I select two or more object and go to the alignment icon, the Align to option is grey and not accessible. I need to click to a align icon at first and then Align to is accessible. I have Win 10 and I don't know if it is some kind of a new feature but it's annoying. The picture after click to alignment icon is attached. Thank you in advance for your reply. Kind regards, Roman
  22. Is there an easy way to center an image to the center of an artboard? I like to center it vertical and horizontal. I expected some aligning/snapping settings to apply. But that doesn't seem to do that. I've setup a document, type web. The image is inserted using File > Place.
