  1. 1. Would it be possible in one of the next updates to make the rulers show metric divisions in ten sub-divisions. For example, if I am using a metric rulers, the divisions between cm for example, are not 10, but 5. This makes it very difficult and awkward to measure correctly dimensions using the rulers. 2. Could you also make the zero coordinate of the ruler system be flexible, and to be moved to wherever you want to measure within a drawing. Something like PhotoShop and CorelDraw have. Not having 10 subdivisions in the metric system (the first issue above) it makes almost impossible to precisely measure an element in the drawing that is not aligned exactly to the origin top left hand corner.
  2. I've noticed a strange bug when using guides. Please see the attached .afdesign file. I dragged from the top ruler to create a horizontal guide on the page. I then used the 'create artboard' button which replaced my page with an identically sized artboard. I then duplicated that artboard. I decided I no longer wanted the horizontal guide, so I dragged it back up the the ruler to remove from the page. When I go to View > Guides Manager it shows no guides on the page. Same thing if I select each artboard and check the Guides Manager. However, if I click and drag a selection square anywhere on an empty part of the page, my removed guide shows up on the screen! (see screenshot). list-tick.afdesign
  3. I apologize if this topic has already been raised, but I have no idea what terminology to search on, other than "ruler tool tracking." Some of the tools in Affinity Photo track on the rulers so I can see what coordinates I'm at in real time as I move the tool on the image area. Magnifier, mesh warp, rectangle tool, pen, etc., all track on the rulers, which is great. But knowing the position of the eraser, paint brush, burn brush, and other brush tools is very important too, yet none of these tools track on the rulers. It would greatly speed up some actions if I knew precisely where my brush tools are positioned at any point as I move them on the image. Is there a reason the center point of brush tool coordinates aren't shown on the rulers? Is it possible to have their coordinates appear on the rulers? Have I overlooked an option that will turn on brush tracking in the rulers?
  4. Publisher still doesn't want us to change the ruler's zero mark on two facing pages. If you change the ruler origin on the X axis of a master page of two facing pages, you cannot duplicate that ruler origin change by applying that master to facing pages in the publication. The contents of the master page will apply, but NOT the ruler X origin change. If you want the X origin of the ruler, i.e. the zero mark, to be re-centred in between each two facing pages you must change the X origin for each and every pair of facing pages in the publication manually by going to View > Guides Manager > Spread Origin. This should have been fixed long ago. X or Y spread origins could be specified when one is creating a new publication, then it would apply to all pages. At the very least they should be retained in Master pages.
  5. Greetings, I think we need to have an overlay while editing the footage in the edit screen. This would allow us to know where the center of the frame is at all time, that that would help us with tracking subjects on the video also on that now adding a tracking feature would be amazing! (DIY til this is added is me putting some tape with a bread crumb on it 😆)
  6. Several times I've tried to set the ruler's "zero" position (spread origin) away from the default location and have the change apply to the entire publication. But the change seems to apply only to the page where it was made. I tried it on a master page, thinking the change might be "inherited" by all document pages based on the particular master page. That didn't work. Is there a way to set the spread origin position globally so that the "zero" position is set for all pages or spreads—until you reset it manually?
  7. Hello there. In your version for ipad, how can I see the length when drawing lines? I need to make scaled drawings. How can I do it in this program? I am thinking of buying but I have read that there is no tool for ruler and measurement, is it true ?
  8. Affinity defaults on pixels for the ruler measurement. Can I change the default to inches? Thank you, Tim
  9. I'd like to suggest you to create a simple method to connect the C point perpendicular to the AB segment. If you need some inspiration Coreldraw has a pretty decent way to do that - direct and intuitive. BTW, measuring tools would be great too.
  10. Hello everyone, I am look for a quick way to center the point of origin/ intersection point/ spread origin of the ruler in Affinity Photo (vers. 1.8.3.641). I know I can move it with the move tool or via the Guides Manager. However, this would require me to calculate the middle of hight and width by hand. I could not find a way so far to have it start there automatically (or any thread with the solution on here, I am afraid). What I am looking looking for is how to have the origin of the ruler be in the dead center of any given image (would also be nice for the grid, too, to have it start right in the middle of a picture). This would especially useful for pictures with non-standard dimensions. Thank you in advance!
  11. Hi, I'm pretty new to Affinity Designer software. I am trying to create a guide by click and dragging from the ruler with the move tool. I have read the comments but I can't make head nor tails of it. Someone claims to have found the solution by "unlocking the guides". When I searched a topic on hoe to unlock guides someone answered that a lock/unlock function hadn't been added yet and would be added at a later date. So, at the moment my left eye is looking in my right trouser pocked with frustration. Any advice would be great. Thank you Rob
  12. Win 7 sp1 Publisher 1.8.2.620 If I move the X origin 8.5 inches to the right on a two page publication, so that the zero is centred on the spine, that X origin does not carry over when the master page is applied to regular pages. To get the ruler zeroed on the spine, it appears that the X origin must be relocated separately for each and every two pages.
  13. I just ditched my PC and got a Mac, good move. I bought both Affinity Photo and Designer. Previously I used Corel Draw to make plan drawings. My question is how do you move the zero reference point of the ruler if you want to use the ruler to draw a line of a particular lenth? Also how do you change the scale of the ruler if you want to have, say, 5cm on paper represent 1 meter on the drawing? Both these operations are quite strait forward in Corel Draw, and I can't imagine how you would make a dimensioned scaled drawing without this feature. Thanks for any advice.
  14. The current possibility to set the origin of the Grid and Ruler is great - thank you. But would it be possible to allow a quick and easy setting of the origin according to the set Margins? For example, at define margins in document settings, check the separate checkboxes "Set Grid / Ruler origin to margin".
  15. Good day! Add a "Ruler" - left and top, as in the version for the PC. Implement this feature soon! For Affinity Designer / Affinity Photo
  16. Please add ruler to designer on ipad
  17. Windows 10, Publisher build 174. I only found this by accident. I can imagine why, when dragging a new guide out, it might be useful to turn the Preview Mode off - if only temporarily at least - but I don't see why a simple click should do it also since clicking on a ruler doesn't actually do anything else (as far as I know, it doesn't look like it does).
  18. I apologise if this subject has been covered elsewhere, but I could not find it. I am new to Affinity but with 25 years of Adobe experience. Being able to view the 'bleed' in a document before printing is very much desirable but I found mention of it elsewhere as a likely upgrade. My main question is of being able to move the ruler origin in a document so that like in 'Illustrator' you can easily change the origin while you are working to suit different origins within your design that you need to work from. It is very rare, when working, that you don't wish to shift the origin for the purpose of measuring simply from a particular object. Is this already possible, but I've missed it in the help or tutorials or is this something that might be provided in an update? Otherwise, I am enjoying the experience!
  19. I wasn't able to find out how to set the ruler in percent units wich is really a big need for me. When I go to the zoom or ruler I do not see "percent" as an option. Thanks
  20. Affinity Photo for the iPad Pro is just great and I hope Designer is coming soon as well. Until now I had only used AP to edit photos, but finally I got around to try it out as a drawing app and it rocks! But nothing as good that it can’t be better so here’s my list of features I’d like to see. One is quite simple: add a line tool to shapes. There is the arrow tool but then I need to select none for the arrowheads and if it had been the other way round, I’d be content. The reason I ask for it is because I often add a thin line to frame my cartoons, for instance. Procreate has a solution for it; you just draw a line and press and hold and it snaps into a straight line. But since iOS support a ruler why not add that? Well, it wouldn’t work on the desktop version or for other platforms, but a ruler would be handy as a support when drawing straight lines. Then I’d like to see something like Photoshop’s Magic Wand - a really quick selection tool. Click. Select. (And now I remembered a useful feature in Procreate; to be able to select a layer as a reference layer.) Finally I would like to see a do not disturb mode, a clean sheet or drawing mode. By that I mean something like the full screen mode you have, where menus go away - but they snap back too easily! When I have chosen my tool I’m all absorbed when I’m drawing and I work fast and intensely. Then it’s frustrating when all the menus pop have or I inadvertently touch some feature I don’t want. If by clicking the little icon in the upper right corner really meant that everything but the canvas go away and stay away until you click it back again, it would be great. And then the adjustments for the brushes should go away, too. That was all and forgive me if this was posted in a wrong place and feel free to move it where it should be.
  21. intelligent_rulers_upd2.afdesign Because some are waiting tooooooooo long for better rulers including a “change origin point” feature, we made a flexible ruler for dm, Berthold points, Pica points, Didot points, DTP Cicero and other units that you can change easily for your own needs just in seconds. Even if you need furlong, light-nanoseconds, Fournier point … no problem. Now you can have many rulers with different units at the same time. And they even can measure curves. Some backgrounds can be found somewhere. Have fun and help to improve Affinity apps. The old ones: intelligent_rulers.afdesign intelligent_rulers_upd.afdesign
  22. Hi, I've had a quick search for these related items and couldn't find and they're niggling me, not having them in Designer. They're related to Rules/Rulers/Guides... Perhaps new feature requests!?!: Drag ruler back into the ruler area to remove Right-click ruler bar for options (remove all, place rule at a set distance, units change) Drag ruler outside the ruler area to force a scroll When dragging a new ruler out, so a live measurement on the line as well as in the transform pallette (maybe?) (perhaps fixed here: Thanks
  23. Hey, I saw a request for this feature last year, and haven’t seen any discussion on it. I’m designing a book cover, and need to put in guides. I’m not seeing a ruler option. Why doesn’t this have a ruler? Isn’t that kind of important in any design or photo software that supports print-ready projects? am I just missing the option? just downloaded the app, and this was the first thing I tried to do. I’m excited to get to know the app more. can I have a ruler, please? Haha
  24. Hi. Please add the ability to change the ruler's unit of measure from pixels to inches. Print-related work is often measured in inches (here in the U.S.). I am sure other units of measure would be appreciated by others, as well. Please allow a right-click on the Ruler to change the units of measure. Thank you!
