  1. I follow every update from the beginning of beta, and I am delighted with the fast moving development. You guys are wizards! Can I ask you to do even a little bit of magic in your wonderful app: Aligning to the key object (ctrl+left-click on the object to select it as a key) , and repeat the last transformation (ctrl+d in Illustrator)?
  2. Affiniti wonderful application, and I would very much like to use it as my main instrument, but he still lacks some features: - repeat the last operation, or arrays (without this tool creating patterns turns into hell) - alignment on the key element
  3. Will the windows version have feature parity with the Mac version? or will it lag behind in terms of development?
  4. This is my list of feature requests so I can completely ditch illustrator. While I love Affinity Designer and bought it to support development, It doesn't fully replace Illustrator because of a few key features that are missing: Feature Request List: 1) Path offset 2) Shape builder 3) Snap to intersection between 2 paths (This has been fixed in the latest 1.5 beta) 4) Snap to self/copy. (i.e. when I drag and object it should snap to its previous position, or if I Alt drag a copy of an object it should snap to the original object). Existing Features That Are Buggy: 1) Expanding a stroke creates way too many verts Other Low Priority Features: 1) Use saved pressure curves across documents
  5. great work I hope you could support these features smart objects selection with pen tool in designer shape builder Arabic support thanks
  6. It would be a very useful feature to copy the features of a text , color type, size and color contour like Corel Draw funcion.
  7. Hi! Today icon fonts are a de-facto in UI design and there are tons of libraries available. It would be very useful to have a glyph palette or studio to list them all for quick&dirty usage in projects. Just a simple grid should work. Pick or double click to insert them in a text object. I know you love to do things "the very Serif way" so candies such as CSS escape code or hex code label for each character should be a well praised feature! :) Cheers!
  8. Anyone aware of a way to apply noise fill to a multiple selection of objects? I've been doing a workaround with a layer over the top and multiply, but it's not exactly what I'm after. If not, can I request it as a feature? :)
  9. I would like to see AD have certain things I use all the time in AI. 1. A way of displaying and applying all glyphs in an OpenType, including all variants and alternates. 2. Optical Kerning. 3. Optical Margin Alignment. Thanks, CM
  10. I seem to have pasted an object using a pattern fill from AI into AD. Surprisingly, AD seems to support this just fine, and hasn't rasterised it or anything. Having said that, I've been wracking my brain trying to work out if I can edit the pattern from within AD, or even create new ones. Coming up blank on that. Any help? I've attached the file, you want to look at the bottom layer (Layer 2) and the related swatch is in the swatches palette. Dan
  11. Maybe we should all be looking to PhotoLine, Gimp, Scribus and InkScape for feature inspiration rather than Adobe, Corel and Xara. At least we'd know that the features are possible and available for implementation rather than blocked by a murder of laywers looking for a creative way to crush the little upstart. Any thoughts on this?
  12. First of all, great product! Several of the things I'm wishing for are already on the roadmap, so I won't bother wasting your time repeating them here. So first of all, my gripes. After first buying this illustration software, I was literally dumbfounded at the lack of a dedicated LINE tool. I finally figured out how to use the pen tool to accomplish the task (awkward). I was then blown away by the complete lack of arrows for the ends of line segments (I mean, even the most basic drawing program nowadays has these things). Those are probably two of my biggest gripes. And as for the Arrow shape tool, control of the arrowheads at each end using the toolbar was really cumbersome until I figured out to use the control points (toolbar controls not very intuitive). Additionally, I don't particularly care for the Command-J shortcut for the Duplicate function, but I can live with it. Also, I would prefer to have the VIEW commands available from a pop-up menu somewhere within the workspace window. It's also rather awkward in my opinion not having access to a document window's title bar, as I routinely do things like duplicate the current file or revealing the file in the Finder, all from the title bar; I know I can accomplish the same tasks another way, but it's not normal. With your Callout tools (rounded rectangle and ellipse), I found it disappointing that it's so cumbersome to attach text to the callout (I mean that's the whole point of a callout isn't it?); whenever I would try to attach text to a callout using the Frame Text tool, the callout itself would disappear! And when I created dashed lines, the controls available for dashed lines didn't do what I expected (as far as dash spacing), and turned out to be very unintuitive. When creating text on a path, it's unclear to me how the software decides whether to place the text on the outside or inside of the path (it seemed rather random to me). Also, twice in a row, when attempting to use the Intersect tool with two simple overlapping shapes (an oval and an arrow shape), it would lock up the program (progress bar running indefinitely). And another thing… I discovered that once you fill a shape with a gradient, there's no obvious way to get rid of the gradient and go back to a simple color fill without going through the extra steps of filling both ends of the gradient with the same color. Those are my main complaints; now on to feature requests. While we're talking about gradients, I would like to see the ability to do compound gradients (more than two color points). I would also very much like to see text morphing capabilities in Designer (the lack of such capability is especially curious since it's available in Affinity Photo). Anyway, that's all for now. I'm sure I'll come up with more as I use the program more. Thanks for listening.
  13. Please include a killer slideshow module in a future version of Affinity Photo. We do slideshows all the time at our camera club and I also do them for weddings, memorial services, etc. There really isn't a great tool for that on the Mac. On the PC, ProShow is available, but I don't want to put Windows on my Mac just for that. FotoMagico is merely okay. I think you can do better!
  14. It would be great if the rulers had the following functionality: Right-click: change units Cllick and drag on the upper left corner: Set the page's origin (zero point) Shit-drag: moves the guides in whole digit and fractional increments (0.25", 0.5", etc.) This could also be a Preference setting (increments). Additional unit: Percentage (of document width and height), so I can drop a guide at 25%, 50% of the width or height of document... real handy :)
  15. Hi, Congratulations on the exciting software release! Looking forward to using AD and the whole suite when it's here. I'd like to know how often do you plan to update the Designer? Will you rather wait longer and add as much new features as possible or implement a more rapid update cycle? I think it would be better from the user perspective to see more frequent updates with less new features rather than wait for a whole bunch months but understand it may be difficult given the infamous App Store approval process ;) Thanks and keep up the good work!
  16. Rather than on the Affinity Facebook page, I'll post my suggestions here. As I said, as a Freehand user, I miss a simple but complete Transform pad, including x-y move tool (with duplicate options), percentage scaling (with options like scale strokes, content...), flipping, etc. I know the page features will grow in the upcoming version but including configurable bleeding space around the pages (to manage crop marks and other useful information) would be great.
  17. Hi! I had this idea. When you make a websites the best way to see how people use the interface is actually seeing them use it, perform tasks. The real users, people who have not seen the wireframes, and are not in the website biz. A lot of the time this points out things like: UI elements you thought were clear, no-brainers are not People use the UI / site in different ways than you had thought of Where people "get lost" Where people expect things to be What elements people love Watching people use your UI can be a real eye opener sometimes. So why not do this for AD? While it would be nice to fly in people from all over the world it might be more efficient to have people record a drawing / AD session. This would be most effective if people had a microfone, to explain what they were doing, what they were expecting to happen. I'm sure this would deliver a ton of insight. // Edit: And if you had the same person do/ draw something similar in Ai, you could compare that, see what they love & use there...
