  1. I see that this one has been around for a while (4+ years) but it would be helpful to be able to rename spare channels as part of a macro. Renaming is possible in other actions (creating a curve layer for example) - why not this one?
  2. A tiny thing but probably one that should be fixed: I clicked OK instead of Cancel after selecting Rename of a Global Spot when I then decided that it didn't need changing.
  3. So I recently updated to 1.8... (very late I know) and have been having serious trouble when saving my documents. Steps to recreate: Opened any image in affinity designer Make any change to the photo Save as and change the name but leave the .afphoto un changed Produces error message attached When reopening the file, I get another error message saying "The file type is not supported" I do not get this error when the file name is not changed. This is not ideal though as I end up with lots of files with stupid names such as DSC02780, and if I try
  4. A bit of a weird one. When I create a new layer and double click the title to rename it, if I type the new layer name too quickly the app seems to commit to the new name before I've even finished typing it. This seems to be especially prevalent when I try and rename it with anything starting with the letter "S". For instance, if I make a new layer and I want to rename it "Skyline", I double click the default name "(Pixel)" and quickly start typing "Skyline" I only get as far as "Sky" before it commits to the renaming. So I end up with a layer prematurely called "Sky" and acci
  5. Hello. I am working on comic book lettering and using Groups to prepare the balloons for future slicing to PNG format (they are inputs for comic book composer we are developing). I try to keep it clean and organized by using simple naming code "LANGUAGE platform ###" e.g CZE mobil 001, CZE mobil 002, etc. Sometimes I need to split the ballon and/or add new one which messing up the order. I usually put there an extra letter (001a, 001b...) but I would prefer to keep numbers only. Is there any chance to rename all groups in 1 step by defining syntax I described above? I found
  6. I like to work with a list of swatches and give all colors/swatches my own name. But with long lists it takes a long time to rename all swatches the way the interface is build now (look at video below). What we have to do rightnow for all items in the swatches list, each time to rename: Rightclick a swatch Move the mouse to the right where a menu popped up on a different location, move to the 'Rename Global Color' (or normal color) menu-item and click Move the mouse to the input dialog which is on yet another completely different screenlocation so we have to move the mou
  7. Hey everyone! It would be much faster if double tap on a layer would let you rename it. Best wishes, Shu
  8. Say I have a master page with page numbers. Then I want a second one, the same master with different style numbers for a section of the book. Then I want a third one for another section, still the same basic master page, without any numbers at all. So I could create the first master page, duplicate it twice and save me the trouble of creating each one separately. But then, I do not get the option of "renaming" each master page when I choose Spread properties, for instance. So that is my question, how do I rename an existing page that I duplicate.
  9. I work on a project now where there ie so many files to be created (about fifty) and the have to be in the right order. To do so, my artboards are divided in 4 categories : A B C & D hence my artboards renamed A1 A2 A3.. B1 B2 B3 etc..... Therefore I spend a lot of time renaming artborad. Is there any way to bach-rename? Or at least edit the convention 'Artboard {n}'? On windows you can press F2 to rename (cannot find a way to set up short cut for renaming in affinity). So if you select 50files and you press F2 you type "NEW NAME" and all the files will automatically be rena
  10. Hello, Iam new to using Affinity and have been using Photoshop as part of my job for many years. My boss has recently purchased this software, but with the nature of work we do, I am missing the Bridge feature which allows me to view and make basic edits to images, rather than having to open all images all at once, or individually. Also i would think a batch renaming feature would be useful. Please can you let me know if any of these features are appearing in a future update. thanks Gemma
  11. hi there, It seems i can not rename Artboard1, Artboard2 etc. in names i prefer, am i right or overlooking something?
  12. Hi, Have a reproducible hang here for you - Affinity becomes unresponsive forcing a Force Quit when you do this... 1. Save As... 2. In the Finder dialog (List View) right click a file and select 'Rename...' 3. Hit Enter 4. Affinity cries 5. Well, it doesn't actually cry, it just does nothing, and continues doing nothing, whatever you do. Thanks Wayne
  13. Hi, Can you please add a new feature to rename the name layer with a hotkey in Affinity Designer/Photo? Maybe cmd + r/ctrl + r; or at least give an option to assign hotkey for this operation Thank you!
  14. When renaming Layers, AD ignores standard MacOS text editing conventions, mainly, passing Opt key + Forward or Back Arrows should move the cursor to the next or previous word, respectively. What seems to happen now is that AD's Kerning command intercepts the keystroke and attempts to increase or decrease letterspacing, which of course is an irrelevant behavior for renaming a Layer. Interestingly, Cmd + Forward or Back Arrows works as expected, taking the cursor to the end or beginning of the line, respectively. Basically, all text editing behavior within the UI should respect MacOS
  15. Hello! I was wanting to suggest adding a feature in the application that gives us the option to retain or sequentially name our saved files just to keep everything organized better. As it is now for me I plug in my SD card to my iPad and import photos to the camera roll, then I import that image from photos into the Affinity application. Is there another way that I can import the images to keep the file names? I edit quite a few files at a time and in Lightroom Mobile it retains the file name even coming from the camera roll, I am hoping it can be implemented in a futur
  16. Hi from XD i suggest the artboard rename directly on double click, here an example.
  17. When I rename a symbol in the Symbol panel, the new name does not propagate to instances of the symbol already on the page. Also, could renaming and deleting be brought inline with other conventions within Designer... Click the name in the Symbols panel to rename Rename inline rather than a modal box Select in Symbols panel and hit Delete key to delete Thanks for your consideration.
  18. Hey there, what I'm missing so far regarding the swatches panel: - Easy renaming workflow of swatches with F2 and Tab, and to go further: something like Renamy would be even more awesome - Select and delete/copy multiple swatches. At least it should be possible to click/select and delete via DEL-key to easliy clear up the swatches - "remove unused colors"-option to quickly clean up a palette - usecase would be mostly the the document-related palettes - Convert already added swatches to Global/Spot-Colors - Ability to easily set spot-color-name the same as swatch-name and vice versa
  19. Create a new symbol. Rename it in the Symbols panel as "MySymbol". The original instance does not acquire this name, but remains simply "(Symbol)". Drag an instance of the symbol on to the canvas, this does have the correct name "MySymbol (Symbol)" Now rename the symbol in the Symbols panel to "NewName". The neither the second instance, nor the original update to reflect the new name. Now drag an instance of the renamed symbol to the canvas, again it shows the correct name "NewName (Symbol) We now have 3 instances of the same symbol, all with different names. Surely the name of all
  20. Hi When i try to record a macro in the windows version of Affinity Photo, I am unable to switch between layers. For example if I create 2 duplicates of my background layer, and make a high pass adjustment to the top layer, I am then unable to switch to the layer beneath to make another adjustment. Also, I am unable to change the name of any layers whilst the macro is recording. Any help much appreciated.
  21. I know you can rename an object by selecting it on the layer panel and then double-clicking on its name. The problem is that if you have a large document with thousands of objects you first need to select the object you want to rename on the document and then spend a looooot of time locating the highlighted item on the layer panel so that you can double-click on its name in order to change it. This should be a lot easier. You just need to add a "rename object" option on the layer menu (and/or the context menu you get for the selected object). We use Affinity Designer to create graphics we
  22. Whenever I export a file, if before clicking save I rename a file in the system file-picker dialog, Affinity crashes and must be force-quit. The attached screenshots should illustrate my point. Steps 1) click export 2) in the dialog, rename any given file 3) export as the previous name of the renamed file 4) click save -> crash.
  23. Hello, I miss the functionality for organizing groups without touching the mouse. If I had a shortcut for renaming a group or an element or could select one or more elements/groups with the keyboard, it would be a lot more comfortable. There are already the standard shortcuts for cut, copy, paste, etc, but it seems to me like they have not much value as long as I had to use the mouse. What do you think? Best regards Leon
  24. When i click on a layers name to Rename it, sometimes it just highlights the name of the layer in blue but does not accept the name I type. Once I hit Enter on the keyboard, it defaults to making the layer (Group). Any ideas?
  25. Not sure if I've included this before? When you click on a fill in the swatch panel. Right click > Rename-fill/Delete-fill 100% guaranteed to crash the app every time.
