  1. I ran into an issue where, if you duplicate symbols after applying an effect from another layer/ symbol/ group, the symbol is no longer duplicated as a symbol. Instead, it becomes a group. The bug is displayed towards the end, in the screencast, I also show that this wouldn't happen otherwise and that it is caused by the layer effect, not by the disabled symbol syncing. The bug part starts at 1:10. 2023-01-12 12-55-34.mp4 Steps to reproduce 1. Create a symbol 2. Duplicate the symbol 3. Disable syncing symbols 4. Add an effect to either a copy of the symbol or to an altogether different object 5. Drag the effect from to another copy of the symbol 6. Duplicate the symbol (from step 5) in the layers panel 7. Notice how the copy of the symbol becomes a group Also note that at 1:10 in the video, you'll see me dragging an effect of the symbol to the other symbol. Designer for some reason sometimes won't accept this. That's another bug, which since the two are related, I also report it in the same bug report. Workflow in which this occurs I have outlines applied to my symbols and to align them over other objects, I sometimes turn off the effect. It is then easier to re-enable the effect by dragging it from another symbol. I also tend to copy symbols if they are rotated, so I can preserve their rotation.
  2. I did not realize that Publisher was storing and exporting meta data until I duplicated a previous document to use as a starting point for my new one, and my client noticed that the title field in the exported PDF file was the title of the original document, not the new one. I can edit the title meta data within Acrobat under preferences just fine, but was hoping there was a way to do that within Publisher, so I do not have to take the extra step of re-editing the PDF metadata every time I do a new export. Is it possible to create/edit metadata within Publisher?
  3. When I alt-drag an object to duplicate and move it in one seamless action, the smart guides don't kick in. When I just drag (without touching the keyboard) they're behaving as I expect. Is there a setting I've not found for this? (Mac, can you alt-drag on a PC?)
  4. Hi, The shortcut to duplicate objects in the drawing area suddenly stopped working for one of my documents. I just tried to create a new document in the same AD instance (2 open tabs) and it works in the latter. What did I do to disable it? Is there a way to reactivate it? Thanks in advance, Simone.
  5. An Option-drag of a selected object on Mac mostly causes the selected object to be duplicated after it gets released. I'd appreciate to use this GUI behave in Affinity. On document page view and in Layers panel, too.
  6. When I use the rotate widget, I cannot duplicate the object I am dragging with any of the modifier keys. Please add this option, because hitting duplicate before rotating an object kills the flow for me.
  7. New issue with the latest version of deisgner. When you type out anything , then you want to duplicate it by pressing ALT and dragging the text object. The contents of the new duplicate do no show while dragging. They appear after stopping the drag. This never used to happen. Gary
  8. I am looking to copy the formatting of typesetting from one paragraph to another. It is easy in InDesign using the eyedropper tool, not so easy in Quark. Does anyone have a suggestion please how to do this in Affinity Publisher? I can not find it in the help dropdown. Thank you.
  9. A feature I use very often in Photoshop and which I seem to be missing in Affinity Photo is the option to duplicate a layer from one open document to another. I use this feature on a day to day basis and I think it is very handy. Would be great to have that in Photo. I am a new user so I hope I didn't miss it if it exists already by any chance, but since I didn't find it in the help section I guess it isn't available. Thanks!
  10. I want something like this but I want small circles evenly around an ellipse instead of a circle. How can I do that?
  11. Would be nice if you could add a modifier to duplicate objects when rotating it like when moving it.
  12. Double Up! In this beginner Affinity Photo tutorial I double the photo and double the blend mode to produce some interesting photo manipulations. This is number 37 of my Powerful tools of Affinity playlist.This tutorial is shown in iPad and Desktop. https://youtu.be/0fE7Du_-4-M
  13. I know that I can duplicate a layer by cmd + drag. However this does not seem to work in the players panel. This is a very handy feature in illustrator as it allows to duplicate a layer without moving it and immediatly changing the order of it. I know I can cmd + j do duplicate and move it afterwards, but since this is a very often used thing, it makes working quite annoying. Please add this.
  14. I’ve just discovered symbols in Designer. I’m trying to set up a vector drawing to use as a background. I thought I’d be able to insert the symbol and then duplicate all the way across and down, but the duplicated symbols don’t update when I change the source symbol. Only the symbols that I insert reflect any changes I make to the source. Also, is there a way to set a default size for a symbol when inserting it? My symbol source is 200x200, but when I insert it, it is smaller and not square. I need 100 of these to fill the space, and it’s getting tedious inserting one by one and resizing, pius moving. I know I can export it and use it as a fill, but I plan to have a handful of coordinating colorways, so I thought symbols would be a more efficient choice.
  15. Dear Affinity-Team, dear community, I am working with Affinity for a while now, and I am really happy with the product. One thing though is bothering me a lot when working with Affinity Publisher. I remember from my Adobe times, that it was possible to add pages from one document to the end, beginning or any page of another document open at the same time. So for example, if I wanted to integrate one page from one open document into another, I just needed to click right and I could choose between the options: "Duplicate page to beginning, end, page ... of this document" or "Duplicate page to beginning, end, page ... of document ... (documents name)" and then there was a list of all the documents open at that moment. This was a really easy and fast function in the Adobe Suite, that I liked. Is there any similar option in Affinity? Thanks for your help Best regards
  16. Searching the help did not produce any result. How do I draw for example a 12-leaf-daisy by only drawing one leaf and than duplicate/rotate it along a circular path? Is there any built in function like "actions" or "automatic repeat by angle and path"
  17. Hi, I recently bought affinity designer and I'm still learning the shortcuts. But something I really miss from using other editors is being able to duplicate the document you're editing onto a new one. I've looked on the forums for a way to do that but I've found nothing. Is there a way to duplicate the page you're editing onto a new document instead of opening a new document and copy;pasting the contents?
  18. I've been a pretty sophisticated Photoshop user for ages and was happy to see most of the familiar functions, tasks and key commands I've been familiar with using all these years are mirrored in Affinity Photo. I was, however, baffled by one of the most basic functions in any photo editing app, namely making a selection and then copying and pasting it to a new layer. No matter how I've tried numerous ways of accomplishing this after first selecting a layer, creating a selection, alternately using either Cmd+C or the Edit Menu to copy it and then: 1) Creating a new layer, making it the active layer and using Cmd+V 2) Simply pressing Cmd+V with the current layer selected 3) Holding down the Option key and dragging the selected area... The ONLY result that consistently shows up being affected is the actual selection itself—NOT the content! Am I crazy?...what am I missing here?
  19. I work on a illustration with a huge number of small dot that i start on Illustrator and i work fine ; but when i change to Affinity, everytime i duplicate an element (and i do that a lot) my computer freeze for a few second. I loose a lot a time. Then i notice that the time my computer freeze was the same for one or multiple duplicate elements. And when i move a element, my PC doesn't freeze. So all i have to do was duplicate a lot of element and move them where i want.It's save me a lot of time. Hope that can help someone in the same situation (and sorry for my bad english).
  20. I got a problem I got a photo and make a Selection on then I go to the other panel to duplicate to a new layer but doesn't work, sometimes duplicate but the hole photo even when the Selection is there can someone help me IMG_0014.MP4
  21. Hi everyone, Just need some help, I'm in the works of creating a (roughly) 200-page product catalogue. Is it possible to: 1) Copy & paste guides OR 2) Have guides copy over when adding new Artboards using the Documents preset. Creating new guides over and over for 200 pages is not gonna work very well haha. Cheers
  22. Hi, I am trying to do a power duplicate while rotating an ellipse. the amount of rotation needs to be as precise as possible. I and trying to create seven ellipses in a perfect circle. The attached file shows what I am trying to do. I need seven smaller ellipses equally spaced around a larger ellipse. I have created one and changed its rotation point to the center of the larger ellipse. It works fine if I manually rotate it but if I enter a precise rotation value (51.428571429) in the transform panel, the rotation point is ignored and it just rotates around itself. Thanks.
  23. Hi guys, I would like to do some simple operations into my masking Affinity Photo, but I can't manage to do it. My project is a simple black filled pixel layer with a mask on it.I would like to duplicate an area selected of this mask with the marquee tool to another part of this same mask. But I can't find a way to do it, the "Drag + Command" operation doesn't seem to work (the selection is moving but isn't duplicated). It is just me or am I doing it wrong ? Thank you !
  24. How do I add more than one shadow (effect) to the same layer? For example, adding two different shadow effects to the same object?
