Hey everyone, with the all-knowing alternatives to Affinity Suite (and also numerous other unrelated apps/applications), right-clicking on the name of the currently open file in the file window/titlebar allows you to see the location (unless it's a new, unsaved document). In combination with the option »open recent« (which also only shows the file name but not the file path) or the touch bar, which as well displays the last X documents, this would be incredibly helpful. Because … you know … we creatives sometimes forget where the current file or the latest version was saved to. 😅 My next workaround would actually be »Save As…«, which – in other apps – usually can be used to make out the location of the currently opened file. But here too, Affinity Suite seems to have its own way of working, which is not really comprehensible to me, as it shows the location of the previous/last »Save as…« operation, which is rarely the location of the currently opened file. I would be happy if this small feature gets implemented in a future release. 😉 Greetings Dennis
It seems like we get something like one post per week where the user has ‘lost their tools’ which, usually, is caused by them pressing TAB accidentally. Since: * it’s so easy for someone to press TAB accidentally; * it’s not something that all users would expect to happen; * there is no on-screen indication of what has happened or how to undo what’s happened... … I would like to recommend that some kind on on-screen indication is given to the user to tell them how to get the UI back. On Windows this could be achieved by having some simple wording in the window title bar, such as “[UI has been hidden - press TAB to reveal it]” (see attached mock-up) but I don’t know if this can be achievable on OS X or iPad. Alternatively a message akin to the Assistant pop-ups could appear. The message could have a ‘close’ icon (which has to be pressed to remove it since the user may not see a message that goes away by itself after a second or so as they are ‘in a panic’ because everything has disappeared) with a ‘Don’t remind me again’ checkbox for more experienced users, or something similar. I’m sure there are other alternatives, and I don’t really have any preference to which is used, but I do think that the user should be given more information about what has happened and how to get the UI back as it can be disconcerting to have things disappear and not know what to do about it.
