  1. If the document has more than one page, input bar pops up where it is far from the text frame when inputting Japanese. This doesn't happen If the document has only one page.
  2. Sometimes, when using some mathematical functions in input fields, the Unit Of Measure needs to be given for the expression to be calculated. For example, when I enter “+=cos(30)*10” (without the quotes) into the X field of the Transform Panel there is no effect, but entering “+=cos(30)*10 mm” (with the UOM) moves the selected layer as expected. Also, entering “x+cos(30)*10” (no UOM) into the X field yields no movement while entering “x+cos(30)*10 mm” (with UOM) also yields no movement, so providing the UOM is no guarantee of an expected result. However, entering “x+fraction(2.5)” (no UO
  3. I was going to post this as a Feature Request but I thought I see what people thought about it first. We often get questions about problems that are eventually grounded in the fact that the numerical input fields don’t always show a totally accurate value, sometimes because the Preferences have been set to show too few decimal places. For example, a rotation field may show 10 degrees when the actual value is 10.3. What I suggest is that the numerical input fields have some kind of indication to show that the value displayed in the field is not the same as the (internal) actual value.
  4. I'm using Apple Magic Mouse with "natural scrolling", a.k.a. move content to scrolling direction instead of scroll bars. This probably reverses the intended directionality of input scrolling, but that's all fine by me. I have a question however. If I gesture with the Magic Mouse over an input field, say, character tracking, swiping up decreases, and swiping down increases the value. Great. Now if I want to adjust the value more accurately, I hold shift, right? But now the value only increases when I swipe up OR down, meaning I can't decrease the value with vertical gestures when holding shift!
  5. Designer 1.6.1.93 Surface Pen right click doesn't work at all, so I have no way to call right click menu with the pen. It slows down everything. Touches are still equal to pen strokes, this is NOT right, please make the app distinguish them from pen strokes, cause each touch paints things and it destroys the experience. Moreover touch can add more functionality by performing operations of for example Move/select tool while you're actually using any other mode, more convenient, more functional, isn't it? Thank you
  6. Hello affinity designer team. I would like to propose some additional type of tools to include in your roadmap priorities. These are the basic precision tools, like what you see in CAD software environments like fusion 360. I cannot emphasize enough the gravity and necessity that this would make affinity designer take a bigger leap towards gaining more users. One of the tools I am referring to are the arc tangent tool similar to fusion 360 (and other cad softwares), typing or input functionality for Line/edge length and angle, and lastly making the rotation angle information visible.
  7. Stylus input on desktop (Mac) isn't nearly as smooth as on iPad, no matter what tablet drawing brand you use (I've tried a few). I've brought this up before, and it's kind of a biggie, considering there's a ton of illustrators, designers, photo retouchers/editors, using drawing/graphics tablets for their work. Some some reason this only happens with Affinity apps, and I haven't had this issue with any other graphics software. It's not a deal breaker per se, but it's very notable, and if you use a drawing tablet most of the day for your work, it can get quite frustrating (and could potent
  8. Can I draw rounded rectangle on ipad and scale it with fixed corner radius? I cannot find even corner radius input box like desktop version. Please help me, thanks.
  9. It's easier to operate on small values, also there will be no need to do math (yay) So let say I want to rotate object clockwise by 67 degrees. That's easy - just enter 67. But when rotating counterclockwise things starts to look more complicated. I must calculate 360-67 to know it's 297... damn 293. See? What about just entering -67, and moving on? (maybe I mixed directions, but general idea still holds up)
  10. I have been working on graphic novels, which has had me regularly hopping from one persona to another, and using a constant input mix of touch screen, surface pen, mouse and touchpad (version 1.7.2 of Photo, Design, Publisher, on Microsoft Surface Laptop with latest W10). Here are some input issues that I have encountered. - Sometimes Publisher just stops taking drags. Can choose layers, objects or menu items, but can not resize, draw lines or move anything that involves a mouse drag. Restarting the program sometimes helps, sometimes I need to restart the computer. - Sometimes when I
  11. Hi there! So with the new version of Designer for the iPad, I am having problems inputting numbers into either the palette of the resize dialogue box. I have a document that's 8.5" X 11" and I am trying to resize the canvas to 8" X 3.5". I am not using artboards. I am using the resize function in the app. When I try to resize to the new size, the file becomes 8" X 3". It disregards the .5" for the height. I have tried multiple times and the same thing happens. I have made sure that the lock icon is not selected and it still doesn't work. I'm wondering if others are having this proble
  12. Temporary input is shown with wrong font, size and position. (IME's default font?) I assume this is because you are using Windows' built-in text display engine but Affinity's for this part unlike Mac version? It's little inconvenient and sometime it will be a problem to guess the final output. I know implementing custom text display logic like Mac version is tough and problematic. But I would like you to implement it like Mac version at some point.
  13. When I type arrow keys(i.e. down then left) while typing Japanese(refer p1), the same sentence I typed will be added next to the sentence I typed.(refer p2) on Japanese input, there are two steps to input text. First, type a sentence I want and this is input preview and the sentence will be highlighted.(means it's temporary and not regular text) Then when I type enter or return, it will be fixed as regular text and highlight on the text will be disappeared. Usually if I type down arrow while previewing, I can choose predicted sentence below input preview.(refer p3) But I can't ch
  14. After a while in Designer, keyboard input for hotkeys (e.g. P, Ctrl+J, Ctrl+S) and Art/Frame text input do not work. Keys like Shift/Ctrl when transforming an object in the viewport still work, as well as zooming using Ctrl+Scroll, and property text input (e.g. names, transform values, brush size, etc.) still work. I've noticed that this is usually preceded by Designer freezing for a couple of seconds, and then once it resumes the issue starts. The issue can be fixed by restarting Designer, until it freezes again. Note that this issue only happens on this specific laptop and not on my W
  15. This problem still exists, even on the latest 1.6.4.104 release. I'm having trouble working around for multiple art-boards each time I open the document. I have posted a video to explain what's troubling me. As you can see, this problem is only with the art-boards. And also, the values once entered in the document creation window is stored in the document setup field and it doesn't update at all. Please watch the video to understand the issue more clearly. Please solve this issue soon. Thank you!
  16. Hello, would it be possible to limit input from tools, specifically the brush tool, to only stylus input? That was we could freely place our hands on the screen, pan, zoom, etc. without the fear of making marks. As it is now, whenever I'm drawing or paining, I have to go back and cleanup marks made by my hand. Thanks!
  17. Hello! So I bought Affinity Photo just the other day and I am really liking this program. However, since there have been reported issues of jagged lines when drawing, especially with tablets, I tried out the Beta for 1.6 to see if the issue was fixed. First things first, the new stabilizer feature is an improvement over the live version, which I have an example of with this first attempt at doing some lineart with the software (I used Lazy Nezumi Pro, but there are still artifacts of jagged lines in there when zooming in). As I said before, the jagged lines are improved up
  18. I've noticed that Affinity Designer sometimes slows down drastically when I'm using a stylus. I'm not talking about drawing in particular; interacting with the UI is even worse. Simple things like locking a layer or selecting a color sometimes take several seconds. Everything suddenly performs as expected when I use the trackpad instead.
  19. This week, this happened several times: when using (randomly) some boxes such as kerning, text size (and other settings in different panels), it makes jump affinity to another app, making Designer disappearing and focusing on another window. The only solution I found is to separate Affinity on new space (mac) and to open in a full frame mode. If not, I can reproduce this really annoying bug. N.
  20. When I'm in a numeric text field, holding down the Shift key as I tap the arrow keys should increase/decrease the value 10x. (At the moment this key combination acts to select the text before/after the insertion point, which, while standard behavior for text fields, is not the expected behavior for numeric input fields.)
  21. Please consider adding a HEX color input box for the color pallete. Sometimes it's just as important to be able to input a color into the pallete as to extract one and this would be very useful for web design.
  22. Hi all, I just noticed the following buggy input behavior in the layerFX panel: if you: 1. type in your value and 2. immediately hit "tab" key to go to the next input field (which does not happen in case of layerFX panel, but that is another story, which is already posted as an other issue) then the new input value will be replaced by the former value. See attached video. In the first part of the movie, I typed in a value and waited 1 sec. before continuing with "Tab" key. That accepts the new value. In the second part of the movie, I did it rapidly - which shows the bug. M
  23. Hi, strickt speaking I have declare the current behavior of the input fields when using arrow keys (shift+arrow key) as buggy in the following 2 situations: 1.) if a value is "1,5px" and you press e.g. "arrow up" to step 1px up status quo: result is: 2px expected: 2,5px So the "1,5px" will be rounded to 2px instead of adding 1px But in the next usage of "arrow up" 1px will be added 2.) if a value is e.g. "12px" and you press "shift+arrow up" to add 10px status quo: 20px expected: 22px So the "12px" will be "rounded to 20px" (add 8px instead of 10px) But in the next u
  24. Hi, the following situation: for example I want to change the width of an object. I click into the input field ... within the "transformation panel" ... hit return - the focus stays on that input field which is NICE in case of using tab to switch to other input fields. BUT: when hitting the "Esc" button I would like make sure to release the focus of that input field so that I can go on in my work with AD. Now it leads to confusing situations like: if I want to go on with another tool like Zoom (Z), or Text (T) ... the still focused input field leads: 1) to entering the input fi
  25. Hi there, the input fields of slice names in Export Persona do not accept CMD+a to select all. Maybe it will be fixed "automatically" with that similar issue: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/24832-input-field-of-transformation-panel-in-export-persona-does-not-accept-cmda/ Thanks guys for your work, Stefan.
