    Artboard turns into text box

  2. I have a template that I have been using to create designs at the right size and resolution. But when I made it, I didn't realize that I would need the artboard. Anything I pull to the side, is invisible with this template. But on designs that have an artboard, they remain visible when off to the side of the document. Do I have to make a new template or is there a way to add an artboard to an existing document? Thanks
  3. Is there a way to edit multiple artboards at the same time? I need to resize a pdf document for all pages. Each page is an artboard. When I click on multiple artboards, it gives a combined size, which is hard for resizing. Instead of clicking multiple artboards of 2x4 and it displaying 4.5x4...can I click multiple artboards and resize each to be 4x8?
  4. Hi, I'm using AD mainly for webdesign, which works great. At the moment I'm on a print project and I've been struggling with export tools: slices sizes and position. I created a test business card and the slices don't match with the artboard. The resulting PDF shows white lines (TestCard.pdf), I assume, corresponding to the positioning and size error between slice and artboard. Based on an answer by MEB the position and size were done whole numbers (Capturar-1.PNG). But on Export Persona, size and position changes (Capturar-2.PNG). Surely there must be a way to avoid this... --- While writing this, it occurred to me that maybe the slices uses px as units and not mm, which means the conversion from mm to px, results in decimal numbers. Is this it??? If so, how to work around it? This is for an online digital printing service, so, no bleeding. --- Thanks, Pedro TestCard.pdf
  5. Hi, I prevent, sorry for my english, i'm french. I have a problem with the "pixel" mode on artboard. I'v founded a bug in June and no one have a solution. The bug is the following : When i draw a circle on an artboard, and when i zoom in or zoom out, the display of pixel change, and the height and weight of the artboard change. I send an attached file to show you the bug. To see the bug on your computer : Switch on pixel perfect mod or pixel display (in don't know how is named in english) Make an artborad on 15px/15px Draw a circle in the entire artboard. Zoom out, and see the dimensions... Can anybody help me to solve this heavy problem ?
  6. I have a designer document with multiple artboards. When I attempt to print a single artboard by selecting it by name from the print dialog the preview shows a completely wrong artboard. Printed artboard is the one show in the preview, but it's the wrong one. See included screenshot for details. I've also attached a test document that can be used to reproduce the bug. OS version: macOS 10.12.2 Designer version: 1.5.4 print artboard bug.afdesign
  7. My version of Affinity Designer: I'm running Windows 10 home. I've got a quite similar problem to this one and it's been very annoying because I can't work on my important project the way I would like to. When I try to resize or move any artboard in my project, the app crashes immediately. I've also tried to create a new blank document and create a new artboard in it – at the same size as one of the existing artboards in my original document. And then copy and paste all the objects to this new artboard from the old one. After doing this, it behaves still the same and crashes immediately. It happens also on other computers with clean installation of Affinity Designer. And I also tested the customer beta – problem still occures. Because I seriously want you to resolve this problem as soon as possible, I am also attaching my working file for you so you can easily replicate it (FYI it's just a mockup). https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B9fRyW-4FM2EZkJ1RkRhQ0h0TWM I'd be glad if you give me some feedback for this issue. Thank you
  8. Hi guys, I am fucked up beyond all repair. I am working on a project file with several artboards, symbols etc. ... and now my file has fucked up in the way, that if I move an exsiting artboard or a copy of one (I have to create more app-screens) AD just crashes. Now I stuck and don't know how to continue working with all the former work which is in that project-file... Cheers, Stefan. AD_CrashBug.txt
  9. Hi! I lost my Adobe Illustrator from my other computer and had to start over so here I am with Affinity Design. I recently downloaded AD and have been messing around with it lately - I really like it! When I was working with Illustrator, I used to do majority of my designs in Landscape mode, rarely portait (although I will be doing more Portrait for Grade UI Kit!). I have been rotating the artboard but it's getting annoying each time - is there a way I could quickly select Portrait or Landscape mode for a specific artboard? Another side question - I really liked the visual assistance (distance, connecting at exact same anchor spot, middle part of the line, middle alignment of artboard, aligning, etc.) in the Illustrator and I do see it every now & then in AD, but just not as often as it was in AI. Is there a way to change this to increase assistance? Any helpful tips/tricks would be very much appreciated and looking forward to getting better & perfecting my skills with AD! Thank you, Dalton
  10. Hi, I have experienced dozens (maybe even hundreds) crashes of Affinity Designer - it crashes when I copypaste an artboard and start dragging it to a (mostly right) side. I checked all Macbook/Magic mouse settings and could not find any reason why this is happening. It is extremely annoying, as the work is very often not saved, even with the restored file. Thanks for your help, Alena
  11. I have an AD document with around 150 artboards. The current file size is 163.3 MB Each artboard has a character vector illustration in a different pose, to make a new pose I often use a previous one as a starting point. If I duplicate and then attempt to move an artboard, AD crashes. The work around I have at the moment is to hide all the artboards (including the one I want to duplicate) and then duplicate and move the artboards I want one at a time. I understand that this is most likely due to the size of the document. However I am hoping this can be addressed as the ability to contain an entire project in a single AD document is one of the best features. I think it's possible as my system resources are not being taxed from what I can tell. I'm using a 13-inch Mid 2012 Macbook Pro El Capitan 8GB RAM 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB
  12. Hi! I did not notice if this bug was in previous versions (now I'm using, but now when copying the Artboard all Symbols turn into Groups. How i "fix" the problem for now: 1) I copy artboard 2) Delete everything from it 3) Copy all objects from the previous artboard. In this case, the Symbols do not turn into Groups. In screenshot two artboards: Original (with Symbol) and Copy (with Symbols turned into Groups)
  13. Would it be an idea to (optional) dim 'inactive' artboards? So as soon as you work on artboard 2, artboard 1 wil be somewhat dimmed, depending on your app settings? – Richard
  14. I'm creating characters for animation and I'm wondering if it's possible to automatically move the individual parts to separate artboards for export?
  15. I have deleted art boards on a given document. Is there a way to automatically/manually renumber them to reflect the changes? For instance. If I have Art Board 1, Art Board 2, Art Board 3, and Art Board 4...if I delete Art Boards 1 and 4...is it possible to renumber Art Board 2 as Art Board 1...and Art Board 3 as Art Board 2?
  16. I have a document in AD with multiple artboards. Each artboard is an export slice. If I move one artboard to a most left or top position in the document (the artboard's position is shown with a negative x,y during drag) then that position will be the new 0,0 position and all other artboards will be updated accordingly. But all the export slices will not be updated to the new coordinates! Therefore they are all wrong afterwards :-( Best, Rudi
  17. Is there a way to copy contents with copy/paste, and in the same location? How about making a duplicate of an artboard?
  18. I imported a AI file a co-worker gave m into Affinity Designer so I could export it as multiple PDF files since Affinity Designer is incredible with exporting multiple art boards. But when I imported the file, the art boards were labeled as Page 1, Page 2, etc. I had to rename all the art boards before exporting. If possible, could the original art board names on the AI file be used?
  19. Hi! It would be great to be able to hide artboad labels. For instance, if you want to zoom out and look at your artboards, the labels are overlapping and don't look good at all. Plus, hiding the labels gives you a better idea of what the design looks like.
  20. Is there a way to change the Artboard/Layers preview to a white background? I create most of my work with dark lines so I can't see them with the default black background.
  21. It's great that Designer now supports artboards. But when working with multiple artboards it is tedious to have to export them individually to files bitmap based file formats. Please add the ability to export all artboards automatically. File names should be derived from artboard names. Artboards could also have index numbers and one should be able to export ranges of artboards.
  22. I've been using AD for a month. I've been making two page marketing sheets of various sizes. For a document, I created two artboards for front and back so I can see both at once. I setup bleeds which you can't see onscreen before exporting. My questions are: 1. When I export to PDF with bleeds showing, my front page has printer marks but no bleeds while the back page shows the printer marks and bleeds. I definitely have the content going outside the artboard on both pages, so why would the back show bleeds and the front doesn't? 2. Should I even use Artboards at all for a 2 page document? It seems like some things don't work right with Artboards. Is there a better way? 3. When is there going to be a way to see the bleeds onscreen? It's tiresome to export and check the export just to check a bleed. Thanks in advance.
  23. I have Problem with adding guides to artboards. When I try make new guide in "guides manager" appears new guide in the centrer of selected artboard. But when I try to change its value, AD inserts negative numbers. It makes guide manager completely useless. I have AD version: on Windows 7
  24. Hi, I'm working on a large project in AD 1.5. I need to delete some empty artboards but AD always crashes when I try (0xC0000005, cannot start the crash reporter afterwards). Fortunately this has been fixed in 1.6 beta, but I need to keep it in 1.5 because the 1.6 file won't open back in 1.5. Tried to empty the artboard and moving it inside another one, but it still crashes every time. Any workarounds? I'm worried because I have a very short timeline for this project.

    Embeded Document Artboard fail

    Hi, was trying to embed the document I have been working on. The doc I´m embedding has a lot of artboards, so I got a dropdown option to choose the artboard I want to preview, but the one showing is never the right one. Is there a given way to sort artboards to make embedded files work?
