  1. I noticed with last upload in Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo that now I can select object with Move Tool without draging mouse over whole object as you can see in video bellow, but that does not work for Affinity Publisher, or AD and AP within Publisher. A Friend of mine can not select object in this way in Affinity Designer, it is the same as before, you have to drag your mouse over whole object to select it?!?..Does anyone else have this issue? I mean it would be great if it could stay this, but I think it is some kind of glitch on my version.. Video_2021-03-10_082616.wmv
  2. When editing inside a text box in Illustrator I simply used my left thumb on the CMD key to change the cursor to Illustrator's "select" tool, and when I lifted my thumb I could go back to text editing. As far as I can see (and I may be wrong) the only way I can get from inside a text box back to then "move" or 'node" tools is to go to the screen and choose it from the toolbox. Otherwise I have typed my shortcut in the text box. Is this correct?
  3. Using Affinity Photo 1.8.6 on a fully updated Intel iMac running Mac OS 10.15.7 (19H15), I have the following major frustration, when coming from Photoshop: One of the "holy grails" of using Photoshop is that you can switch to "move mode" allowing you to select layers and move stuff around freely just by holding the command key on a Mac (control key on a PC). Sadly this doesn't seem to work on Affinity Photo, or work reliably, and I am forced to hit V or select the Move tool manually. Considering the move tool is mostly used as a "click to select other layers" tool, and considering that I
  4. Using the “Move Tool” I am unable to select any object without dragging a selection rectangle completely around all of the points encompassing the object. Yes, I know one can simply touch on the path of an object but there should be a way to select even multiple objects by dragging a selection rectangle across any part of an objects path. We need a way to possibly use something like “command-drag” a selection rectangle across any part of an object to select the entire object. Example, if there were three objects then we can select all three by simply dragging a rectangle that enclo
  5. I am getting a bit annoyed when working in publisher. Say I edit a document and edit some text and then want to move a object I need to click on the arrow/V move tool. Trying to shortcut using "V" ends many times up with writing "V" or creating new text with "V" in it. Is there another better way to cancel / deselect?
  6. Hi, I'm trying to resize and scale the contents of an artboard that I duplicated. I've searched the forum but am only finding posts from people trying to do the opposite (expand the artboard without scaling its contents). In this post: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/15756-resizing-artboard-also-resized-layers-inside-of-it/?p=71554 MEB seems to suggest that using the Move Tool to resize an artboard will indeed scale its layers accordingly, while using the Artboard Tool resizes the artboard without scaling its contents. I've tried resizing the artboard with both too
  7. I came to the forum today looking for a way to replace a certain keyboard shortcut functionality I'm used to in Adobe products. Specific examples of operation given below are from InDesign; from what I recall Illustrator is pretty similar and Photoshop is a little different. I only found one post here that was even in the ballpark, so... Scenario: you're editing text. Obviously you can't use "V" to select the Move tool; that will just insert a "v". OTOH selecting the Move tool with the cursor is a pain if you just want to do a quick move and get back to editing text right where you were.
  8. When I try to select a graphic element often times the Move tool selects items in the vicinity which are in front the desired element. In this example I have a red triangle which I am trying to select. There are three black lines in front of it. No matter where I click on the triangle I always select one of the lines. I haver tried to zoom in very close to make the selection but it didn't help. The work around is to either move the black line to the side or to the back. Both strategies are too time consuming.
  9. Hey There, I have spent the last hour and a half trying to figure out why the move tool is not working. I am trying to resize. I have read forum posts with the same issues and their responses, but nothing seems to help. I am working on a Dell Laptop (Inspiron 15 5000). My layer is not locked (see picture below) I also included my Edit/Preferences/Tools screen (see picture below) This (move tool) seems like a basic, but without getting past it not working, I am unable to do what I would like. Thank you so much! Sarah
  10. Is there a way to rotate multiple objects around their own rotation centre, without selecting each one? I have a graphic with many (100+) objects, that have to be rotated, and can't really find a solution.
  11. I have Affinity Designer 1.8.3 (latest stable), and I experienced this bug since 1.8 When Artboard is selected and I want to rotate it with "Move tool", it doesn't show the "rotation marker", by which I can rotate it. It appears only when I start moving Artboard with Move tool. Little bug but annoying sometimes, especially when you have lots of content inside artboard! My specs (ask me if you need more): Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4 (latest) MacBook Air 2017 Affinity Designer 1.8.3 (bug comes from 1.8v) Screen_Recording_2020-04-20_at_15_03_20.mov
  12. Hi, I am currently manually stacking a lot of moon shots. Thus i have to move and rotate the layers since the moon moves and rotates slightly. Moving wokes like a charm, but rotating could be a little better. Now I have to grab a corner node to rotate the picture, which makes me see only the very outer edge of the canvas. My suggestion would be to introduce a modifier key so I dont have to grab the node anymore, but could rotate the picture using the mouse anywhere on the canvas. This would allow me to rotate and check simultaniously. With shots like this not only the corner is of interes
  13. When included in a macro, the move tool (Transform) dialog trying to change the 'Scale X' or the 'Scale Y' goes to 1000% when entering any value in the value box.
  14. If a text frame is selected with the Move tool File > Place opens a File/Open dialog that defaults to a file type of "Text files (*.txt...)". In this case it also displays *.docx files. And in this case no other file types are shown in the file-types dropdown menu — when the bug has occurred, that is. A Word file isn't a "text file" (IMO). So that "Text files" file-type item seems misnamed. If a text frame is selected with the Text Frame tool File > Place opens a File/Open dialog that defaults to a file type of "Affinity files" — when the bug has occurred. In this case .docx and .
  15. Can Affinity Designer allow the user to use the modifier CMD in Mac temporarily to use the Move Tool? This was so helpful in Illustrator. I find in AD that holding down CMD acdtually shows the Move Tool, but I cannot actually use. This means that when working with a text I must go to tools or use my shortcut, which of course means that I have to use ESC or some other method to exit the text itself. It would be so much easier simply to hold CMD, move the the text box and then release CMD. Perhaps this would not work with Art Text.
  16. Q1: I can't Drag to Select multiple ellipses (each is on its own layer). Is this something in my Snapping Settings? Q2: at the Bottom pop up menu when move tool is active are the following choices: Add to selection; select under; select inside; about center; and then 6 more small icons -- what are these for??? here is what my current Snapping settings are: Note that under Document> Snapping: there are these settings: (is this why I can’t drag/select multiple objects?) Enable Snapping is turned OFF Force Pixel Alignment is turned OFF Preset is set t
  17. Windows 10 Home 1909, Photo 1.7.3.481 and 1.8.0.526 beta. When I make a selection with the Rectangular Marquee Tool, then change to the Move Tool, I can move the selected pixels but the CTRL (clone) modifier – shown in the status bar – doesn’t seem to do anything. The SHIFT modifier does what I expect but the CTRL modifier doesn’t (see attached GIF). Is this expected behaviour, or am I doing something wrong, or is it a bug, or something else?
  18. Hello, I am using Affinity Designer on Mac (MBP early 2015) with the Huion Ink graphic Tablet. I am practicing isometric art so I created a 1000x1000px artboard and enabled the grid (50px, 8 separations). Placing a rectangle onto the grid plane works just fine but it gets laggy when I want to resize and move it using the move tool. Actually, I've tested a bit: It lags when I am zoomed in and want to move/resize it using the move tool. It does not lag when I am zoomed out (to see the whole artboard) and want to move/resize it using the move tool.
  19. I've encountered an issue with the Move Tool (Black Cursor Icon) after I've saved my file. Once the file is saved, the move tool only selects the objects but will not drag them/move them. I also am no longer able to resize objects perhaps related to the Move Tool's overall functionality. The only way I am able to resolve this issue is by shutting down the entire program, opening it up again then re-opening the file. This can be very disruptive to my workflow, and I do like to save my files periodically to avoid losing any significant work. The video attached shows me saving a fi
  20. Hi there! Might have pressed something unwillingly, but double clicking on any object no matter which always selects the top layer/object. Have no clue how to fix this. Restarted the program and nothing. I need to mention these layers were brought in from another Designer file. Thanks in advance!
  21. Overall performance is good for me, but there is a lag when trying to use the node and move tools with a pen. The node or object selected doesn't start moving until a *long* time after the drag starts, and in that time the pen is a long way from the original touch point. After the delay, the object or node snaps to the pen position. Things are smooth after the initial delay-snap. Other features are smooth as well. Drawing with the pen for example is perfectly smooth and lag free. I am using a Surface Book 2 with maxed out memory, and the latest version of Designer. Having the base attache
  22. Hi there, I resently have an issue with the Move Tool. I wanted to scale a 1px weight line broader. Only to check if the middle Part is correct. But then I noticed that the broader line was scattert. Here ist the Result. So I tried to work around, sure I can duplikate the line, but thats too laborious. Then I tired it in Gimp with the scale tool. And there I can choose between the diffrent Interpolation. My Question ist now, why I cant do that in Affinity? Here the Gimp Version, how it shoul look like. Hope someone can help me.
  23. I am working in a Designer file with several artboards. I go back and forth between Designer and Pixel persona. Suddenly I cannot select any art I've drawn on pixel layers using the move tool in either persona. I get a thin bounding box (no handles) and the art is locked in place. Other files are not behaving like this. Well, now it's back to working ok and I do not know how I resolved it. I was getting ready to take a screen grab and voila. Can you please explain what happened here? thank you!
  24. Great work with Affinity Photo on iOS! I was doing some editing of textures the other day and found the workflow for lasso selection and moving things around really slow at the moment. I would really appreciate the Move tool being promoted to the Selections persona, and also for the last selected tool on a particular persona to remain selected when switching between personas. I also use a progam called Moi3D which has a great selection tool, if you drag a rectangle from left to right you have to surround entire objects to make them selected, but if you drag from right to left they
  25. Updated: Fixed, see last line. Hello, Odd behavior experienced: In a particular file I can no longer move-clone items. To be specific, I mean when using the Move tool and you press Ctrl and then drag an item. The expected behavior is to have the item move-cloned. My resulting behavior is the item is simply moved. The erratic behavior is experienced with many kinds of item: tried with curve, shape and pixel. Only in this document. Affinity Photo 1.7.0.367 on Windows 10 Update: found that I had a document-wide pixel selection ongoing (marching ants). Ctrl-D to dese
