  1. When opening a document with layers, the dots for (de)activating don't show up. They reappear when resizing the palette.
  2. Great software overall. Thank you for the amazing one-shot pricing. That said... Separated mode is a basic, and for a lot of people, essential feature. If I had known this was dropped from V2 it would have made me hesitate a long time before buying as quickly as I did. I'm kind of feeling like there should have been a conspicuous warning somewhere that it was not included in V2, nobody expects features to go backwards in new versions. Way back in the day, the fact that Mac could run Adobe with just floating toolbars, and no awkward "application window" around them, was a godsend for designers. Those of us who used Windows instead/as well had to contend with the primitive OS requirements of Microsoft which signalled clearly that Windows was not an ideal design/graphics environment. Removing the separated mode option is just stunning to me, and signals a return to an awkward, older sort of unpolished era in graphics software. Even tablets are moving towards floating app windows, and ultimately floating file windows. The ability to provide this will affect whether Affinity is seen as a clunky older software, or a forward-looking app that intends to compete in the future. Crossing my fingers in hope this huge shortcoming will be addressed in the next update. Seriously, this app window things is just really awkward and annoying, like something that's just always getting in your way as you try to work.
  3. As a newbie, I have another question: what does this graphics on one of my layers' mean? I see some tranparency icon, but I don't find any in this folder. And I see a realistic folder icon which does not appear elswhere in my layers panel… TIA, Tomek
  4. Hello amazing people! Adobe does this, in Illustrator desktop… I’m getting older, and working on a smaller iPad… it would be truly great if Affinity would consider a way to do this and enlarge the UI/icons/interface, to some extent. I find it’s difficult to see, but also repeatedly missing when selecting certain UI functions. Is this a possibility on iPad??
  5. I recently got a 4K 32” external monitor for my laptop and this obviously caused me to work differently than using my laptop display, namely, as screen size increases, one must sit back further from the display. Doing that, the Affinity UI is barely legible to me. I feel like I’m trying to tap on a grain of sand using a needle. I already have the UI Font preference set to Large but it’s not nearly enough. I don't want to use Display Scaling resolution in system prefs as that negatively impacts performance and I want to use the maximum number of available pixels. I know this is not a trivial thing to address, but I’m hoping / praying the AMAZING devs fundamentally address the UI in version 2 of the Affinity Suite in terms of functionality and customization, and this would include being able to resize the entire UI, including font, it's size and letter-spacing (critical for legibility), as well as icons, Studio panels' buttons and icons. Please consider engineering a responsive UI just like modern websites which can resize any and all elements based on the device used for viewing via CSS. That way users can create profiles for desktop and laptop UI preferences. Larger displays can use an enlarged UI and laptop displays can use a more compact version. Thanks for your consideration and all you do. Happy new year and God bless and heal the world!
  6. Hello, When trying to seriously capture faint deep-sky objects, with my rather unprofessional equipment (just a mirrorless camera and a 300mm lens), I tend to do it with several sessions over several days. Each day I add another session to the stack and see if I can squeeze some more photons out. Each day, however, I have to select all lights, darks, bias, flats of each previous session, over and over again, before adding the files of the new session. I didn't find a way to save these file selections, so that I don't have to do this repetitive task every session. Did I miss it somewhere or does it not exist? Thanks for any pointers. Cheers, Dom
  7. Hey, So I really love to use Affinity Designer on my iPad Pro and love how intuitive and natural it really feels. But in the end of the day its still an iPad and producing large jobs on it can be a hassle at times, therefore requiring a desktop. So I was wondering if it was possible to bring that interface or gestures to the desktop (ideally also for Photo and Publisher). As at least for Windows, many laptops and some desktops are coming with Touch Displays and Styluses. And it can even be the case with Macs when hooked up to a drawing tablet. But you still have to use your mouse and keyboard quite a lot when working on such devices as the interface doesn't have any touch gestures or a UI layout that would make it more convenient when working with touch/stylus enabled devices/displays. So I was wondering if it was possible to bring that iPad interface or at least the touch gestures to the Desktop Versions. It doesn't have to be the default, but simply a mode that users can turn on if they so desire. As this would bring the intuitiveness of the iPad's touch and stylus interface, but with the power of a full desktop. Anyway just wanted to see if this was possible, Thank You for all your Work! You Guys Rock!
  8. When you want to apply opacity to a text frame, you must do it guessing, because the opacity handler does not have numeric indicator for the percentage nor field to place the percentage manually. It should have one, so we don't have to calculate the transparency by where the slider is visually.
  9. when a layer is selected, the hilight on the artboard is always blue ..in AI or ID this highlight can be assigned (I like Grass Green or Gold) this helps me organise eg: base on charcoal; text on lavender; pics on purple; graphics on violet.. begining to really get to grips with AffDesigner ..so smooth ..well done!
  10. About a week ago a magenta stroke began appearing on everything once it had been selected, beit text or objects. It then remains whether selected or not. It appears on older and newly made projects. I've tried searching all pertinent topics and resources to learn how to remove this. Can anyone tell me why this is happening and how to remove it? Thank you.
  11. I take note of the Brush Customization features in Affinity Photo/Designer/Publisher and do appreciate it much, but I am baffled when it comes to making dynamic settings obvious on a canvas when using Wacom's Ciintiq 22. Some dynamic jitters clearly change the display brush stroke, but some do not. And none of them seem to effect the Wacom Pens. What am I missing? Is it that Serif's Affinity products do not interface with Wacom Products? If the two products do interface, how do I set things up so that the Wacom Pen actions reflect the Affinity Dynamic Jitter settings?
  12. (I suspect this has been asked before but I can't find the topic after searching, so...) I've assigned shortcuts to various Panels: Layers, Swatches, etc. When I hit, for example F5, I want it to make the Swatches Panel active. However, if the panel is already open and not active then Affinity (Publisher) closes the panel and I need to hit F5 again to make it visible and active. My question: is there a way of assigning a keyboard shortcut that will toggle whether a panel is active without closing it? Thanks for any help!
  13. howdy :) does anyone know how to customize the keyboard commands in affinity photo? thank you in advance :) ^-^
  14. Is it possible to colorize the "Studio" tabs and sub-tabs for a better readability of the interface, for example… Est-il possible de coloriser les onglets et sous-onglets de "Studio" pour une meilleure lisibilité de l'interface, par exemple…
  15. Hello, Fellow UI designer here, just wanted to suggest a few tweaks to the layers panel, 1. Add an even smaller thumbnail setting and maybe even a no thumbnail setting (Not for me but I think some people might like it). The UI is already scaled quite bigger than I'd like and wastes a lot of space from the actual view window. 2. Add the ability to copy paste things from the layers panel, for example: If I hold down CTRL and drag a layer it should let me make a copy of it. It's different than duplicate because it allows me to put the copy anywhere I want directly. 3. Lock icon in the layer itself, it's annoying having to click the layer and then going up and click the lock icon, I already use the shortcut to lock thing but still, annoying. Maybe make the icon appear alongside the checkmark icon as you hover the cursor on top of the layer? I hope you address this in the upcoming updates! Thanks.
  16. The very small gray icons on black background are almost impossible for me to see with my eyes. Is there a way to make them black on a white background? Or increase contrast and make then white on black. This is a usability issue that will affect many people with disabilities. Please add an option to the preferences. It is incredibly unfair to not consider people with disabilities. I know dark themes are popular at the moment, but there are many of us who have great difficulty with them.
  17. Hello, I would find it very useful if I was able to freely position the tool pop ups from for example the curve or hsl tool. Especially on the iPad Pro 11 inch the center placement of the tool often makes it harder to judge the impact adjustments have on the image while using the tool as it takes up a lot of screen real estate in the center. A great addition would be if something like being able to undock tool and drag it with two fingers to a different location in the workspace would be implemented. Thanks for considering, Johannes
  18. Hello people. I created this project using the affinity designer. Hope you like it https://www.behance.net/gallery/86462907/WhatsApp-Redesign
  19. UPDATE: OOPS - THIS BELONGS IN PHOTO FORUM Just some quick notes on the New Panorama UI and related issues. I was trying to stitch a 10 image panorama. I had a very slow workflow. In the UI presented when tapping the button to select photos from Apple's Photos app, there is no option to deselect the square crop view; seeing the entire photo and its orientation helps identify which images to select. Currently it's not an intuitive process. Also, there seems to be quite a bit of unused space all around the "Images" list and "Panorama" list in the main Panorama UI, which forces one to excessively scroll on the left Images list while trying to decipher the tiny icons' orientation. Same for the Panorama preview list on the right, it is tiny as well. I'm working on an 11" iPad Pro with more limited real estate than the 12.9" Keep up the great work, the apps are incredible and you guys are trailblazing bringing desktop feature set to mobile device
  20. The assets pad objects thumbs showing is too small, I can hardly distiguish after a lot objects being added, if it can be zoom bigger will be better.
  21. Some thoughts on Personas, Sudiolink, and Edit In… commands. It seems to me there is room for improvement in the approach to publisher’s implementation of personas and the studio link feature as well as the edit in photo and edit in designer menu items in both affinity publisher and affinity designer. I believe publisher’s personas need to be addressed. Instead of a designer icon persona, it would be a vector persona icon. Instead of an affinity photo icon for the persona, it ought to be something akin to designers pixel or raster persona. I think reserving the app icons exclusively for the studio link feature would be wise. It may be a good idea to have a separate studio link section on the tool bar, before the personas, as a shortcut to the edit in command that usually sends the file from one app to the other while closing it in the originating app. In addition, this leaves a possibility for publisher to develop or host new personas, such as a preflight persona, an extensive resource / font / hyperlink manager persona, an export persona. some of these may be shared across apps like the export persona, if one owns the hosting app, As publisher currently does with designer and photo. affinity might want to open up the persona as a plug-in platform of sorts, but much more powerful than anything offered in competing suites. Of course it would be beneficial to manage the personas through an app pref pane, to disable and enable what suits one’s workflow. An approach like this might yield a very flexible and customizable set of tools and modules that interact with each other, specifically tailored to an individual’s process. Just some ideas...
  22. Is there a way to change the way that the brush panel interface displays brushes within Affinity's desktop software? For instance, currently it's a list with the large brush previews by default, but could I view them as just icons, or even a list with smaller previews? And is there a way to view the brush names along with the previews? The reason I'm asking is, having the brushes as icons (like in PS) helps with efficiency as I don't need to scroll through a list to find the brush I need. Similarly, having the title display with the brush in a list (like on the iPad versions of Affinity), would be handy as sometimes the previews can look similar but look different when being used. That way I can check the title of the brush I choose to make sure it's the right one. Let me know!
  23. This may have been mentioned by others. One of the obstacles facing Photoshop users wanting to migrate to Affinity is that Adobe users find it difficult to locate corresponding tools, palettes, and menus. Possibly Serif wanted to avoid similarities because of real or supposed copyright issues. I come from a software development background. If Serif could allow users to customize their own interface, that might help. I'm thinking in particular of bespoke 'skins', where an encompassing Photoshop-like UI filters commands from the user to the underlying Affinity program. It would take a burden off users.
  24. Could be interesting to have the possibility of adding a button to the upper toolbar that hides the interface (the same as pressing the <tab> key). Sure, when hiding the interface elements the ulper toolbar also dissapears.... so it can be necessary to think about another solution, like a floating button that appear when hiding the interface, or that the hide button isn’t on the upper bar and located on the window title bar, or anything imaginative else.... The reason is that the key command (<tab>) not always works... especially when text tools are selected or the like Emilio
  25. When saving a Designer document from the ‘gallery’ screen, the dialogue that displays upon completion needs the words “for speed readers only” added. Or maybe an “OK” button, or some sort of user interaction to allow us to read what went where. It’s a bit nerve wracking to not know where your document actually went upon trying to put it away carefully. 10B72A3A-8BA2-42CA-A9DD-63503A4C934D.MP4
