  1. I've noticed a few issues with the width of the panels effectively "forgetting" their last width and changing on their own when I start the program or sometimes when returning from APhoto or AD. For example I had one panel change by itself to about 6 inches wide - I definitely never set it to that. I just did some work in APub using the Designer persona. When I went back into the Publisher persona, the panel was set very narrow. I widened it again and I actually cannot set it this narrow manually: This is as narrow as I can set it manually: So there appears to be a bug in the panels somewhere. Has anyone else noticed this? It's not a major problem, but I don't recall seeing this in V1.
  2. Related: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/37597-ad-export-persona-item-has-duplicate-paths/ Change the message of the error icon to the specific error: If the artboard was named twice the same, say e.g. "The Artboard/Path-Name is used multiple times". The actual message ("The Item has duplicate Paths") indicates Paths that are exactly the same (not only the name) and do overlap or such thing. Greetings, Johannes
  3. Hi. Previously there are request about symbol management here https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/45462-assetsymbol-management/ Well, it might be harder/ takes longer to implement. But for next update, can you guys at least making a way to delete multiple symbols at once (from symbol library). Currently doing right-click -> delete -> confirm is very tedious for me as I can have like 100 - 150 symbols at once. Thanks.
  4. In the layers panel, when you disable (not remove) some effects on a certain object it might be worth keeping the "fx" icon in the panel but maybe with a red "X" through it so you know there are some effects applied to it but are just disabled. That way with a click on that "fx" with a red "X" you can toggle the effects on and off right from the layers panel. Currently when I disable the effects, the icon disappears and I don't know which objects I have tried some effects on... This way, at a glance you are reminded which elements have effects applied but are turned off.
  5. I selected Symbols from Studio but the panel is not showing, although it is checked. I've used Symbols in the past, so I don't know why it's not appeared this time. I'm using V1.10.1142 of Designer.
  6. The Auto Distribute options under Arrange panel is disabled. I am not sure if I am doing something wrong, or if this is a bug. How do I enable it? I am using the free trial v1.4 i believe on OS X 10.11.3. Kindly help.
  7. Can you designate an exclusive panel for what has to do with the administration of the "artboards"?, something like what illustrator has. Just so you don't accumulate a bunch of "Artboards", each with its own layers (be it a few or a lot) in the layers panel. Some way to show, in the layers panel, only the layers corresponding to the "Artboard" in which we are working, for greater order.
  8. Hello all. I just upgraded to 1.9.1 The upgrade came with free assets and I downloaded those with 1.9.1 I followed the instructions on the AP site and went to find the assets panel by going to view>studio>assets...and nothing happens and I cannot open the assets panel. I have the previous version of AP on my Mac and the assets panel pops up with out a problem. Also missing in 1.9.1 when I go into the tone-mapping persona are the presets that were included with AP when I first purchased it two upgrades ago. So, here are my questions: -Why can't I access the assets panel? -Which folder does AP use to download assets on a PC? -What happened to the tone mapping presets? -How can I return AP to the default settings? -Is it possible to download to the an earlier version of AP? And if so, must I uninstall AP 1.9.1 before installing a previous version? Thank you for any suggestions or information that you might have to help with these issues
  9. It would improve ease of use if the Procedural Texture Filter panel would resize to display more Custom Inputs (up to a reasonable limit) without requiring scrolling or resizing the panel. I am using a number of Dave’s macros which create Procedural Texture Filters with multiple Custom Inputs (up to 8). This either requires scrolling through the visible list three inputs or resizing the panel to almost screen to height due to the Equations region. The macros add significant attribute based selection capability to Affinity Photo, so hoping the team can make some accommodations for them. Thanks
  10. As I started to use the symbol panel on all branding projects, the amount of the elements gets longer and longer. We use a very transparent and specific / detailed naming system which fails already after 10 characters as you can not read the name in the symbol panel. It would be so helpful to have the symbol panel with the same simple feature to see the panel as a list. See attachments. -- Thank you!
  11. I took my stereo Denon and recreated its amplifier with knobs, displays, legs, ports, LEDs, grills (that was the hardest) in Affinity Designer.
  12. Using the colour picker in the "magnified" mode, the RGB values on the document (e.g. fill layer) are different from the same colour in the swatches panel. For example, in a new layer filled with R:242 G:13 B:13 the corresponding colour on the swatches panel is R:220 G:51 B:17. It's the same for every choice. Is the swatches panel able to show the right colour? Thank you
  13. Just purchased Photo and Designer and could use some clarification on a couple of things. Getting the free (thank you) included "Fine Liner Affinity Brushes" by The Artifex Forge brushes working was a bit of a challenge. Just double clicking them loaded them into Photo, not designer, because Windows has apparently associated the afbrushes extension with Photo, not Designer. I've since learned they don't show up in the Photo Brushes list because they're vector brushes and won't work. So why does Photo import them instead of serving up a dialog box explaining why it won't import them? More importantly to me right now: Since they don't show up in the Photo Brushes list, how do I delete them from Photo? The collection of Panels at the side is apparently called the Studio? It's nice that that can be detached from the main image window on its own, and resized, but it's mildly infuriating that selecting a panel within the studio immediately resizes it to its default width. Do I report that as a bug? Is there a toggle somewhere I'm not finding? The Studio maintains it's new width when resized while still attached to the main image window. Thanks. It's clear that these programs have a lot of powerful features, but there looks to be quite a learning curve.
  14. 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.
  15. (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!
  16. Would be great to have access to Icons8 library of icons right in Designer.
  17. This sounds silly but makes a very big difference to the feel of the app. When dragging & dropping I frequently don’t know if I’m actually doing it. Issue 1: I don’t know how long to hold the layer for. I need to know when I can start dragging a layer - however, Affinity offers almost no visual feedback Everywhere else in iOS, the item you’re holding ‘pops’ off the screen so you know the item can now be dragged, rather than scrolling your list. See the GIFs attached and let me know if you can spot the moment the layer goes from held to draggable. It’s possible in affinity, but so much more obvious in Procreate. Proposed solution: Have the layer ‘pop’ off the screen the moment it is dragable. Issue 2: I have a long list of layers, and I’m on a multi-touch device, I would normally hold the layer with one finger, and use my other fingers to scroll through the list to find the new spot for my held layers - but that doesn’t work here. (Try it in the files app, or procreate for comparison.) Proposed solution: make the layers palette respond to multi-touch.
  18. IU'm converting from Photoshop and struggling to understand something - In the colour panel, there are 2 colour circles which appear to correspond to a 'fill' colour, and a 'stroke' colour - whereas in Photoshop they relate to Foreground and Background colours. Does Affinity Photo have a concept of Foreground and Background colour or not? In Photoshop I can create a gradient from the foreground colour to the background colour - how do I do the equilavent in Affinity Photo? I used the colour dropper tool to select 2 colours in a photo, but as soon as I switch to the gradient tool I don't seem to be able to use the colours I picked, as a white gradient fills the entire layer and I cannot find an option to go from Fill to Stroke colour.
  19. Hi, I've been working with Affinity Designer for a few weeks now. Coming from Adobe Suite CS6 there's is a lot I like about Affinity Designer, but also a few things that would make working in AD just that little bit better. One of those things is that Align and Distribute doesn't have its own panel. Maybe it Align and Distribute could be combined with the Transform panel (see image) ... or just could have a panel on it own. greetings, Ivo
  20. I really like the responsiveness and immediate feedback about symbols in Affinity. But managing them is not as easy as it could be, much of that happens because of the lack of some functionalities in Symbols panel. What I'd love to see in an updated version of the Symbols Panel: List view Custom categories to groups symbols Search bar Ordering options: manual, alphabetical Easier renaming: select one, double click the name, and when finished, press tab to rename the next one Features to manage symbols in the artboard: Contextual menu to replace a selected instance of a symbol in the artboard by another one on the library Option to, when cmd+click on the symbol, do not select it's layers, but the whole symbol. (This is useful when you want to select a symbol inside a complex hierarchy of groups and layers, but do not want to edit the symbol.) Other advanced features Ability to nest symbols inside symbols Ability to override nested symbols Well, this is what I'd like to see regarding symbols. I hope that this adds something to the discussion about the roadmap.
  21. AP Color sliders can be changed to see the reference RGB Hex #. My question: Is there a way in Swatches Panel to type the known Hex values to add the color to the Swatches Palette? This is a very simple process in Procreate Swatches to add colors to the Swatches Palette. Type Hex number, click color and it's added, maximum 30 per Swatches Palette.
  22. Genereally idea of appearance is interesting, but in current state flawed by some issues: - When Designer file is imported to Photo, there's no way to change fill or stroke of shape with few appearances set. Why? Because there's no Appearance panel in Photo. BTW disparity between obvious features are baffling to me in Affinity. Why Photo misses Stroke Panel? Or why Designer doesn't have proper document preview implementation as Publisher? Etc. It's all doable in all apps anyway, only is long and unconvinient. - When Appearance item is clicked, then pressing DELETE key deletes... object. Seriously? - Appearance item can be dragged on recycle bin icon, but dropping it there doesn't delete it.
  23. Evening folks - quick question, How does one delete an Asset I created and added to the Assets panel it is no longer needed? Didn't want to start hitting 'delete' until I knew this correct procedure. Appreciate it. -Christo
  24. Good day, I'm well aware that the Stock Photo search panel is only available in Affinity Publisher, but, I was wondering when the Unsplash panel would come into the other Affinity Softwares. Now that I have Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo in my arsenal(ditching the subscription model of Adobe altogether), It would be very favorable if it were so. Is it somewhere hidden, perhaps? let me know. Thanks!
  25. Affinity Publisher: When preparing a publication I use at least 5 - 6 different text styles. After creating them I see only one at a time in style panel, so I have to move up and down to apply the desired style. How to expand style panel or make it autoexpandable. Thank for advice.
