  1. Affinity defaults on pixels for the ruler measurement. Can I change the default to inches? Thank you, Tim
  2. Hi, a terrible thing (at least for me) has happened with the latest release: I have just updated to Publisher 1.7.0.270 (latest version) on Mac 10.14.3. German language. And now everything goes wrong with the origin of the coordinates. As long as it‘s only a one-page-document everything is fine. But when I have more than one page everything gets weird: The x-origin of the FIRST page is now calculated in minus from the right border. y is okay. On the SECOND (left) and all the following pages the y origin is obviously calculated from the origin of page 1. So on higher page numbers my text frames and pictures have y-values in the thousands … To make it more complicated: On master pages everything seems to be fine. So I have attached and detached master pages, have tried to set the page origin manually (with the rulers) but nothing helps. This is a new bug – and makes Publisher absolutely a desaster and non-usable on documents with more than one page. I have attached screenshots to make it clearer. Please help urgently – thanks a lot! Reinhard
  3. If I activate the ruler in Affinity Designer my permonace instantly slows (moving stucks, button reacts after a delay which is normaly not the case) down but my cpu or RAM arent fully occupied. Sometimes the problem solves itself after a couple of minutes but sometimes it stays for my entire session so i have to turn it off.
  4. AF Publisher V 1.7.0.249 Mac OS X: 10.13.6 When working with the text in a Table, the Text Ruler does not show. I'm unable to alter the start position, tabs, or end position of the text. If I click outside of the table, the text ruler appears at the top of the text column.
  5. Win 7, Publisher 17.0.277 I find placing guides via the guide manager impossible on a double-page spread because the guideline measurements do not relate to the zero marks on the rulers if the zeros have been offset from the top left-hand corner. This really bad when placing vertical guides relative to the vertical centre line in the middle of a two-page spread. A guide supposed to be +5" to the right of the centre line actually ends up 5" from the left-hand side of the left page, even though the x-zero mark on the ruler is in the dead centre of the double-page spread. In other words, it ends up -3.5" (i.e. to the left) from the centre line. Zeros.docx
  6. 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".
  7. 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.
  8. It would be great to be able to toggle between the current behavior and the "traditional" behavior of the rulers while changing the page origin. Sometimes I wish to move the page origin a specific amount, and that's not possible with the current behavior as the rulers also shift with the page origin as one drags. If we could leave the current ruler positions until AFTER letting go of the mouse, one can move the origin a specific amount relative to the current ruler measurements. Thanks for your consideration and phenomenal update!
  9. Good day! Add a "Ruler" - left and top, as in the version for the PC. Implement this feature soon! For Affinity Designer / Affinity Photo
  10. Please add ruler to designer on ipad
  11. 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).
  12. Hi, I am not able to 'pull' the ruler on to the work area (document workspace) anymore. I'm pretty sure i could do that in the earlier beta version. But then I might be missing something. Love Affinity Publisher though. Great work! Neil
  13. Hi all What does this ruler show? I cannot read these markings as millimeters ...
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. Hello, my problem is: when editing some pictures the rulers flicker. Very noticeable and disturbing! No matter what tool I use. I noticed that the problem does not occur with all images. Also, there seems to be no pattern!? It seems arbitrary. I've attached a video in which you can see that quite well. It was already in the previous version and I was hoping that it will be fixed in the new version. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Sorry about my english! Thanks. 2017-11-29 at 22-34-34.mp4
  18. 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!
  19. 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.
  20. I am trying to draw diagrams with lots of loops. I have posted an example below. I tried for a few hours last night before eventually giving up when Designer crashed. What would really help is to have guide tools such as those available in Sketch Pro. The Ruler, Protractor, French Curve and Perspective tools in particular would be very helpful. Oh, and plus 1 more for arrow and other heads and tails for lines (although I note lots of acceptable work arounds for these). Otherwise, a great product.

  22. Hello, every time I maximize Affinity Designer, my screen gets black. Complete black, also the task bar is gone. After some seconds the screen comes back. But on moving the mouse it changes to black again. It only appears, when the rulers are active Affinty Designer Version is 1.5.3.69 Affinity Photo is not affected Operating System is Windows 10 64 Bit I am using a Intel HD 530 graphic card with I7-6700 It only appears with latest driver version: 154605.4771 With older version 154514.4590 there is no problem.
  23. Hey Affinity Community first off thanks for your great tools I couldn't find anything so far so I'm gonna ask here: Is it possible to export the blue ruler guidelines ? (Designer) I'm currently working on a template that needs a bunch of guidelines for ppl to use in every program so I'd like to have these guides visible. other quick solutions are also welcome have a good weekend

    Ruler not accurate

    Recently bought Affinity Designer. I like it. Until I found out that the rulers are not accurate. I make decals for miniature models. Today I made my first one in AD. It appears that 10mm in real life is 12,5mm in AD :wacko: This means that AD for me is worthless for making things that need to be accurate when printed. I designed a decal with a length of 27mm, but in print it is approximately 20mm! I imported a 1 cm example from an other (accurate) program as svg into AD. See the pics for the shocking differences.
  25. Hi. Is there a ruler functionality? It would be very useful on print oriented documents. If there is already, i cannot find it...
