  1. Affinity Photo is a great app on the iPad and on Windows, but working together with both platforms is not so easy. You could use iCloud to sync your files, but it is very slow when working with large files and regular changes. Therefore it would be nice to be able to access file servers (FTP or SMB) directly inside the Affinity Photo App. This feature would be very cool and I would also pay something for this feature as an In-App-Transaction.
  2. I made the move to Affinity Designer not long ago from Assembly for iOS. While the Affinity suite is leagues ahead of that software, one feature it has that Affinity does not is the ability to export a process video. What I propose is a feature that converts a document's history into a video sequence that shows each step that the artist took to create their piece. I appreciate your consideration and anticipate your response.
  3. I recently purchased Affinity Publisher and Designer for macOS (after previously purchasing Affinity Photo in December 2019) and this feature request relates to all three products. All three products have the Transform panel which allows users to easily adjust values for moving, resizing etc. One thing I keep wanting to do is to click on a little arrow to increment the value for fine tuning. For example, in the mock-up below I show both the current design of the Transform panel and what I'm proposing. Currently, if I want to change the X value from -125.4 to -125.3, I have to click the field to highlight it, click again to place the cursor after the '4', press the delete key and then entire the value '3' followed by pressing Enter. However, in the proposed state, I could just click on the down arrow to change the X value by one increment from -125.4 to -125.3. In other words, currently I need to do two clicks and three keyboard presses. In the proposed state this would just be one click. Finally, using arrows is much better from the point of view of comparing the impacts of the change, as I can view the change in real time as I'm clicking up/down.

  5. Hello! I’d love to see an option to define the first baseline in a text frame – especially as "line height". The default seems to be some ascent height, which however depends on the font selected. So having two text frames next to each other with similar content (the same sequence of line heights) and just the font of the first line being different, it is very difficult to synchronize the baselines of the two text frames. The baseline grid is no good solution, as (if you have varying line heights) you have to disable it for all subsequent paragraphs, and further it is applied to not just the first line, but all lines of the first paragraph. Another "solution" for the described scenario would be to have an empty 1pt first line. Yet I would rather call both ways workarounds, not solutions. I’m very much used to this from InDesign: Looking forward to your thoughts! ––– EDIT: Summary of our discussion (thanks, Old Bruce!) ––– A viable solution for the scenarios I can think of seems to be a baseline grid based on a common denominator of the used font sizes (granted that there be one, which however contributes to good design anyway). (Also see the second screenshot in this post: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/106014-define-first-baseline-in-text-frame/&tab=comments#comment-572592) Still my feature request remains, as it would be a quicker approach in many cases.
  6. When sending content for professional printing sometime we need to convert text to curves. It would be very helpful to have a feature to distinguish editable text and curves from converted text easily. In Illustrator it can be easily done in the view-outline mode - the text would in solid and converted curve would be outline mode. I'm not sure if the exact behavior is possible in Designer, but some easy way to distinguishing Curve-from-text from Editable-text could be immensely helpful to avoid error while sending out content to other vendors. PS: This is the original thread where I asked for help regarding this issue - and the moderator MEB suggested that this feature doesn't exist and I should request for it:
