  1. I purchased Designer and Photo years ago but I just couldn't replace Illustrator & Photoshop because of a few missing features that are just workflow basics. I've moved to the Windows platform and just downloaded new trial versions of them to give them another chance, and these problems persist. Most of them relate to features that prevent the user from making critical, unprofessional mistakes like inconsistent color use across multiple documents. If you are deigning a flyer, a business card and a name badge, you can't have variations between them. These are a few [very] minor omissions th
  2. Recently I had to open an Adobe account for work reasons. The biggest thing I noticed while making the move is how much thought has went into the UI of Affinity products. Simple tasks are a lot easier in Affinity and overall it's a nicer platform to work in. Affinity does lack in features, especially Vector warping, distorting, etc. Overall Affinity continues to impress and I think it wont be long until they catch up. In terms of working experience, Affinity is already ahead.
  3. Hey, because the discussion board is full of requests and I don't really know where to put my thoughts and experiences from the first run of Affinity Publisher I put them here in a quick list for further discussion UI Doubleclick on Color in Color selector opens a different dialog to a doubleclick on a swatch mac OS Proxy Icons for file management monochrome tool icons Color Management / Spot Colors: Device independent color workflow generally mixed colorspaces (like in Indesign and PDF) Overprint preview, separations preview
  4. I'm perfectly fine sticking with an already well developed animation program. But its always good to have a non subscription program you like as a backup.
  5. Hi! Here a list of my most wanted features and fixes for Affinity Designer (also for Photo): Pixel Persona, the ability to have pixel selections snap to the pixel grid and canvas boundaries with all selection (marquee) tools. The software window should stay in its place when I click on items (personas, buttons, etc), it's very frustrating to see the software window that moves when I interact with an element. Copy paste FX, please fix this one. It's very, very frustrating to check every element every time I do an fx copy and paste to correct the pixel
  6. The new illustrator now have this small window pop up every time u click on an object, where u can lock, hide duplicate,..etc. this really speed up the workflow specially on the iPad, but illustrator they don’t have it where you can change or add shortcuts. It will be awesome if affinity take this little bit further and make a very customizable pop up window, where we basically we can add anything, like keystrokes, styles,...etc
  7. Hi affinity, there is no possibility to Export All preferences or settings including View, Editing, also there is no way to export "New project-> MY PRESETS" so please add the possibility in the next updates, I mean Export/Import. Thanks 💙.
  8. ***Affinity feature requests*** * Global Gradient Swatches. Are they this hard to implement in affinity software...it's been 3 years alomst and the top design app for mac still doesnt support global gradient swatches, why is that? * Dynamic Styles. Yes, a workaround for this is using a symbol but having a dynamic style instead of using a Symbol can be used in many areas, means, i can implement a dynamic style with shadows and glow to a circle, a rectangle, a polygon...while having ability to manipulate and watch effects like shadows taking change on multiple objects in real time.
  9. I am posting this feedback in this section of the forum, I hope this help to improve the software Not going to talk about the bugs, I hope all of them get fixed I am going to compare my experience with other softares, such as Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape (the ones I use the most) For the few time I have used the software I can tell is very minimalistic, (I really hope this is not because the Ipad version limitations, as PC can do much more than a Ipad, so I hope PC version is not being limited to keep in the same quality of the Ipad version) Or maybe is the way the software is going to
  10. Input please: As a photographer I’ve been using Lightroom on my (now outdated) iPad for years, and used my wife’s Macbook Pro when I needed features, not available on my iPad (photoshop). I don’t really like Lightroom, I’m intrigued by Affinity Photo, and I need new hardware - so here’s my dilemma: Is there any difference in performance/possibilities/features/flexibility using Affinity Photo on an iPad Pro, or an iMac? Because that might decide my hardware choice (I really like my iPad cuz I travel a LOT, but the output and flexibility is far more important). I hope t
  11. Does anyone here have a link to or access to a feature comparison chart for Affinity Photo and Adobe Photoshop? I'm asking for a friend — really. My friend is considering either updating to a more recent version of Photoshop CC or else moving over to Affinity Photo. My talking about software is great, but I would also like to show him some resources other than my own enthusiasm. Thanks in advance.
  12. Is there any plan in the future to have a remove line between nodes ( but have the nodes till connected ) like in Moho it would be a great tool to have for any one making assets for cut out animation or just filling shapes and not having to have them duplicated to hide line art.
  13. I was wondering if there's a way to save gradient presets? If it's not available, I was wondering if that's part of the roadmap?
  14. Yet another moment of, hey I didn't know I could do that: Today I did a PLACE with an .svg image and I was able to edit it in the manner of an Adobe smart object. I knew I could do that with Affinity files but I didn't know I could do it with .svg as well. Kudos Affinity!
  15. Can you guys please port over the distort feature from Serif DrawPlus or PagePlus into Publisher? This has been announced 5 years ago to be on the roadmap for Designer and still is not there. Today, I am using the Distort from PagePlus (=2015) or CorelDraw7 (=1995) to do this and copying the results back into Designer/Publisher. Quite embarrassing.
  16. I was wanting to align nodes, but there didn't seem to be an ability to align them relative to each other on the same curve. I have been using Inkscape, and I wanted to purchase Affinity designer, but there seems to be a few things that don't seem to be there that I wish there was, including the ability to align nodes. It would be nice if there was an "Insert node at middle point" to insert new nodes right between two existing nodes on the same curve. Is there any way to do this? Also, I find that manipulating nodes doesn't offer a lot of precise control. Is there a way to move bezie
  17. Hey there, I have some suggestions to add to the next update of affinity designer. Since i used to use there tools on Illustrator and there isn't no workaround to get the same effects...Here is the suggestions to add to the next update. Tools: image tracing distort warp text Thank you very much.
  18. I have dual 4k monitors for video editing (Davinci Resolve). Is it possible to get Affinity Photo to work on dual screens?
  19. I see lots of typography-based feature requests for Affinity Designer. This is not surprising since a lot of us are designers using very mature Adobe software and text wrap, linked text boxes, bullets, columns etc are all essential features for layout. However, we have Photo for photo editing, Designer for illustration and [hopefully soon] Publisher for layout. I think a lot of these "essential" typo features are being requested because Publisher has not yet been released. Designer should not get these advanced type features because they are aimed at layout, not illustration. Typo feat
  20. I've no idea where to post this, but this seems like the best place after my search. I found it amazing to watch a Photoshop CC 2019 'new' features video - Errr ... don't we have most of these in Affinity already?
  21. I am really enjoying using Affinity Publisher Beta, it is just as easy and intuitive to use as the old PagePlus series from Serif. However there are a couple of features that are currently missing that I used frequently before. Alignment Buttons For many years I have been used to quickly clicking an "Alignment" button in the Character/Paragraph format toolbar which quickly centred, aligned objects (including text) to left edge, right edge, or vertical centre, top, or bottom of guides or margins. Currently it is possible to align things using the justification tools but there
  22. Hey, new Affinity Photo user here. I'm really happy with the program itself, it seems very intuitive, and easy to get into, especially when you're used Photoshop Elements, which i used before. Now, there's one thing which i miss, coming from that software: The filters. PS Elements really had a big selection of quality filters, and, compared to that, the selection in AP really seems quite sparse. I'd especially wished there were more artistic filters, for text, or narrow object decoration, for example. Wonder if there's anything bigger planned in that regard. At the moment, i rathe
  23. Is there a list of the features that didn't make the Public Beta but are intended to be added through the beta period and potentially before the first gold master release candidate? Obviously, not all of those items may/will make it into the Gold Master, but it might cut down on the request list in the Forum if we could see what's being worked on that is being considered for the final release candidate.
  24. What are the differences between the iPad and Desktop version of Affinity photo? I have the iPad one, but it was only $20 while the desktop version is $50. I feel like I could use the desktop for its more powerhouse ability for some things, but am not sure if there are any differences that make the desktop version is more worth it.
  25. Hello, For some weeks we worked on a really big catalog project. I think the version we used for this was the 1.6.1 (not exactly remembering). Yesterday morning, when opening the file I received a failure message (image attached) showing that the file (approx. 110 MB) could not be opened because of the following reason: "the file includes features from a later version of Affinity". Files created a few weeks ago in Affinity still can be opened without any problems. This error message came out of nowhere. There was no update or change in the meantime. Out of desperation we installed and de
