Freehand had the option to: Xtras > Delete > Empty Text Blocks Basically cleaned up all those empty text boxes that get created when you have the text tool selected and accidentally create a text box by clicking/dragging on the page. These sometimes appear as small crosses/boxes* on a PDF. Can accidentally get grouped with other objects on the page making the group larger than necessary. Can get selected when dragging a marquee and end up in places you hadn't intended. General pain in the backside. Thanks
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.
Just another colour request. More often than not I want to use the same colour for strokes and fills. This means 2 trips to the palette. Currently the default is to open the 'colour' window - the swatches window would be more useful for the majority of users as we'll already have a defined palette in place. This would cut out yet another mouse click. Here's how Freehand did it (and other apps do similar). The 3 small squares at the top of the palette refer to "Fill", "Stroke" and Stroke + Fill". For fill only - highlight "Fill"(as shown - left option) and select the colour. Stroke (centre option) works the same. "Fill + Stroke" (right option) selects both fill and stroke. The swatch palette remains in view at all times. It does away with 2 separate pop-up windows, cuts down number of mouse clicks - saves lots of time on detailed work. Also Freehand let you "show" and "hide" names of colours - really nice feature.
