  1. Maybe I'm just doing something wrong, but when I export a file as a png, pdf, or especially as an eps file the top left hand portion gets cut off. Is there some way to stop this from occurring? These are files that I am sometimes sending out to clients.
  2. I just noticed that when I toggle layer visibility on/off the layers wobble. I'm sure this is an easy fix. Mac 10.8.5 Affinity Designer 1.1.2 togglewobble.mov
  3. I need to design a stationary with a logo in DIN A4 and export it to PDF. Document settings are set to print and A4, everything else is set to default. When I now export the document with the logo to PDF and try to print it, printer settings are set to 96 % in order to fit the PDF on the A4 paper. In other terms, the dimensions of the exported PDF are not A4 but about 4% larger. This is serious, because I need to send the export to the printer's. To narrow the problem a bit further: I additionally printed the Affinity Designer document to PDF instead of exporting, and this works well.
  4. What I mean is - when expanding the panels up and down they don't nudge each other up an down, instead they obscure each other. You end up with panels obscured/hidden behind other panels. Can get a bit tricky. It seems the Colour panel is the problem? Looks like a simple enough thing to correct? See attached. layers.mov
  5. When I select the "Move" tool it displays and acts like the "Scroll" tool. No amount of re-selecting will force it to behave properly. The only way to get it to behave properly is to zoom out or in - that seems to bring it to its senses. This has been happened from the 1st Beta I downloaded and still happens in 1.1.2 - thought it might have corrected itself but no. It's a complete chore especially working with text frames. If I had a way of selecting text frames without having to change tool I probably wouldn't even notice. Help appreciated. move-tool.mov
  6. When I have a text layer selected and I go to alter the font, the program quits completely after scrolling through the font list for a few seconds. There were points where instead of crashing, the text layer would just disappear altogether. The few times this happened, I tried selecting a font anyway and then saving / quitting / reopening. This resulted in the text layer retaining the new font style, but still remaining invisible. Some system information: Affinity Beta Version: 1.0.18771 Mac OS Version: 10.9.4 Processor: 2.8 Intel i7 RAM: 4GB Graphics: Intel HD 3000
  7. The context toolbar is hidden, probably behind something. The tabs on the right is also cut off. Steps to reproduce Make the window fullscreen, then create a canvas (I used web) I've a Macbook Air 13" (1440x900)
  8. Importing before.pdf results in incorrect fill color (black instead of light gray) of the rectangles in the bottom-right of the figure, and an incorrect (enlarged) image size, as can be seen in after.pdf.
  9. When adding noise from the top color selection tool to a shape the color changes on the screen- Pic 1 & 2. But when I added noise onto that same shape & color from the right panel it did fine. (not sure what to call the different panel selections)
  10. Hello, I'm working on a corporate identity and I need to fastly implement it in some mockups for previews... but when I open it ( http://www.pencilscoop.com/2013/10/best-free-brand-identity-psd-mock-ups/ ) affinity crashes.... sb help?
  11. The Navigator palette just stops updating when the zoom is 25% or less? When I zoom out, above 25%, it updates just fine. Zoom in, and it sticks at 25% no matter how low the zoom is. Just found this out while working on a project. It occurs on older (made with MAS version, other betas) and on new Documents with the current beta (v The Name area in the window updates the zoom no problem. I'm reposting this here in Bugs. The Plus and minus buttons work as they should, but as long as the zoom is less than 25%, the value there in the panel itself won't update until zoom is higher than
  12. When I export a GIF with the standard settings, it adds a subtle haze to white areas, which seems to start at the top left corner of the top left vector. You can see it in the attached pic (you might need to tilt your monitor to get enough contrast to see it...)
  13. First off, just wanted to say that I L-O-V-E Affinity. Such a godsend compared to illustrator. Here's the bug I found: I'm trying to export a layer in the export persona. It works completely fine if I'm just exporting an object that has its stroke expanded, but if I try to export something without expanding the stroke first, the strokes shown in the exported PNG are super thin, so aren't working properly. My current hack to fix this is to copy the stroke layers and expand them (I need to keep the original path to tweak later), but I assume what should actually be happening when I export a
  14. The Studio Panels don't butt against each other when dragged/resized. Instead when dragged and resized, they onscure each other. If I extend the Layes panel upward it will cover the colour panel instead of butting it upwards out of the way. Once I lost the colour panel completely behind layers and had to go through the menu > studio turning off and on again to get it back.
  15. The shape disappears when trying to rescale it. Oddly enough if I keep pressing ALT it rescales without deleting it. shape-disappearing.mov
  16. So i was today seeing a small bug. When you set the border size to 0pt and not to no border, the item gets a border. I think it should behave like no border or at least not visible border then. This is complete reproduceable. I attached a screenshot and the testfile. Cheers, Torsten test.afdesign
  17. Not sure if I've included this before? When you click on a fill in the swatch panel. Right click > Rename-fill/Delete-fill 100% guaranteed to crash the app every time.
  18. I grouped a combination line art and text, increased the size by dragging it. When I ungrouped it again the text reverted to the size it was before grouping it. It should retain the size after ungrouping.
  19. Trying out Affinity Designer I quickly found a bug when applying the Opentype Small Caps attribute to text. As you can see in the middle line of the pdf-file attached, in no font I tried “ein” and “ext” (of “Texttext”) is correctly formatted, neither in most fonts the “t” of “ist” – only Satero and Espuma make a difference here. There seems to be a difference, too, depending whether you use Art Text or Frame Text, as you can see in the top line: Set as Art Text, “esttext” is in lower case – in Frame Text it is again “t”, “ein” and “ext”. As I have the font Granjon in both OpenType- and Post
  20. Hello! I finished a business card design in AD and went to export the file as a PDF for the printer. Everything exports fine except that AD is adding an X to the end of a few lines of type... Enclosed find the master AD file; I was unable to upload the PDF output because the forum website said max upload size was 2.18 MB... When I open the PDF in Illustrator, it shows AD did not convert the type to outlines as specified in the checkbox in the Export window? Any clues? Any workarounds while still being able to maintain vector output? Thanks for any help, I need to get the
  21. Steps to repeat: 1. New document. 2. Sketch a rectangle on the page. 3. Tick Gradient Overlay in the right side panel to Enable it. 4. Click the cog icon to the right of Gradient Overlay to display the Layer Effects dialog. 5. Change Blend Mode to anything other than Normal to see the vertical line bug. Note that I just purchased version 1.1.0 from the MAS and discovered this bug about 15 minutes into playing around in a new CMYK document. Thanks.
  22. Select all objects on a page - including text. Group. Drag to scale (using scale handle on bottom right.) Everything scales accordingly. Ungroup. Text springs back to original size (before scaling).
  23. In fullscreen mode, the light top window's bar is partly visible. It's a bit disturbing, as the app UI is dark. Hope you can fix this small issue. Thanks. I'm using OS X Yosemite GM Candidate.
  24. When opening the opacity panel to change a layer or effect opacity, the panel doesn't display correctly: When I change the slider value with the mouse cursor, the panel's background changes: I'm using OS X Yosemite GM Candidate.
  25. Created this quick vector using the 'smart' pen tool. The tool works brilliantly. However, when grouped and scaled as a single object the lines retain the same weight and don't seem to keep the same position - basically they're not scaling as they should. Is this a 'setting' I've overlooked? If not it's a bit of an issue. See below.
