  1. Hi everyone, is there a way to restrict the selection of snapping candidates to the current artboard? Thanks!
  2. I disabled snapping once in a document I was working on, and then I enabled in again few minutes later. UI showed snapping on but no snapping was happening except for the object I had selected when I disabled snapping. That particular object gained snapping back, but other objects didn't. I toggled snapping few times and it eventually came back, although I'm not sure how exactly. To reproduce: Make sure snapping is enabled by default. Make a document with some shapes or curves. Select a shape, move it around to see snapping guidelines. Disable snapping. Move object around to see no snapping. Enable snapping. Move object around to see snapping guidelines. Select another object, move it around and see no guidelines. I'm using AD 1.4.2 on OS X 10.11.6, purchased from the App Store.
  3. Working with the pen tool, I've noticed that there is no way to snap the bezier handles to 45° and 90° angles once the node has been placed. Normally, this would be done by holding down the shift key while moving the bezier handle. In Affinity designer, this locks the handle to the angle it was last placed at. My suggestion would be to keep the current behavior, but add an alternate keyboard shortcut that will lock the bezier handles to 45° and 90° (and possibly other) angles. Could be CMD + DRAG, CMD + SHIFT + DRAG, etc.. Thanks!
  4. If this isn't possible, could this be added? If I crop an image, the borders will not snap to the original image. (I don't like whitespace around an image)
  5. Hello Affinity, Would be great, snap raster brush to any curve line while drawing... sorry for my english, is little bit limited ;)
  6. Please add the features: snap to grid / guide for curve handles and x and y position on screen according to the ruler. Thanks, Banjina
  7. Hi all, new user. How do I snap a slice to layer bounds? Can't figure it out from snapping settings. TIA, Jack
  8. Is it possible to snap to points or objects when rotating an object?
  9. I don't understand why affinity leaves ultrathin white lines between snapped objects. I don't know if this is an option or a bug, they are visable at every level of zoom... Does anyone have experience with this? Here's a picture:
  10. Hi guys, well I love the Affinity apps, but I have a tiny little suggestion which I think could help a lot: Add an option to simply make all objects snapping candidates. Let the user decide if it’s getting unwieldy and to switch to the shortlist limitation. Make this enabled by default. I would suspect that a vast number of users would leave this option enabled most of the time, if not always. Only when it truly gets unwieldy with too many snap candidates would they look through the snap options and discover that there is an option to switch down to a shortlist. Also, now actually realising that there is a shortlist, the user would then be mentally primed to find out how it works. This would all but eliminate the very understandable current user thought process of “snapping seems buggy, this app is flaky, how can they not have snapping sorted out in 2016? Back to Illustrator I go.” And it's not just a learning curve and app adoption thing. Even though I now know about the candidates shortlist, I would way rather switch it off right now and just effortlessly snap objects together! Cheers, Jules
  11. Morning, Am I missing something here, or can I not snap slices to the grid?! I have created a slice, turned snap to grid on, and now am trying to conform that slice to the grid, but it's no snappy. Pretty much all snap options are on, but I just can't snap it! Cheers Wayne
  12. Sorry for the premature question but I don't know why the selection marquee is not snapping to the grid, when the grid is visible? Usually when the grid is visible and snapping is enabled, the selection rectangle snaps to the grid as I draw the selection out. This is not happening in APhoto. Any reason why not or am I just missing something really obvious? Thanks.
  13. Hi, I've recently bought Affinity Photo and I'm really content with it. Great work. There's only one thing I can't get to work properly in all cases, and that's snapping. It seems to only work in certain situations / settings. For example: 1: Create a new document. 2: Turn on all snapping types. 3: Add a vector layer (rectangle). 4: Copy the vector layer and test if snapping to bounding boxes works (corners, midpoint, etc.). 5: Open a pixel image. 6: Copy and paste the image into the working document and close the imported image tab. 7: Test again if the snapping still works, by moving the image to the vector layers. 8: Copy the pixel layer, and delete the vector layers, so only two pixel layers remain. 9: Try to snap one of the two remaining pixel layers to the other pixel layer. Snapping to bounding boxes will then suddenly not work anymore, at least over here. Maybe this isn't a bug and I'm doing something wrong. I hope so. :) Thanks.
  14. Hi, I've recently bought Affinity Photo, and I am quite pleased with it. It feels very solid and snappy. At the moment there's one thing I can't get to work, and that's layer boundary snapping, in order to align two layers against each other. I've turned on all snapping options, but when I move a layer towards another layer, they simply overlap, no snapping occurs. A snapping line does appear when a layer nears the center of the canvas, and snapping works in that case. The same goes for canvas boundaries, that also works as expected. I'm using El Capitan and a consumer level Wacom tablet. Could the Wacom tablet be the culprit, as the driver takes over pointer control? Or am I just doing something wrong? Many thanks in advance for any replies.
  15. How to modify snapping panel to snap duplicated object by using Alt+Drag? I try to snap it to grid. Moving object normally works fine, but when Alt+Drag the duplicated object move freely.
  16. pen tool has some great snap options but I can't find snap to grid. I am sure its there but.....!
  17. I've got a couple of vector masks which are masking out two images. When I drag the masks together, with snapping turned on, they snap but leave a gap between them. A gap that's very clearly visible... what am I doing wrong? There's no stroke before you ask :D Driving me mad!
  18. I am trying to understand why snapping performance can be perfect and a breeze to line things up, then I go to another set of objects that need to line up relative to one another and then snapping totally bonks out and does not perform well at all. Are there special clicking patterns I need to do, meaning click one before the other to align to it. Just seems I always need to play with tolerance, which by the way how does it affect snapping, I may be doing it wrong. I should add that my objects are usually groups of several other objects, sometimes near 100.
  19. In the Export persona, with snapping turned on and "snap to spread" enabled, dragging a new slice will not snap it to the spread.
  20. Hi, I'm new to Affinity Designer but used to Adobe Illustrator (Cs5) Im still using Trial Version but looking to use this a definitive alternative to the Adobe Cloud. One of the first things I noticed in A. Designer is the lack of snap functions. For example, I'd like to me able to have snap alinement lines, and snap to point. Is there a way to activate these? Thanks for any help. Tiago
  21. The 'Snap all when dragging' toggle doesn't seem to do anything when working in APhoto using a curve node. 1. Use the Pen Tool to draw a curve/line segment. 2. Switch to the Node Tool and select a node 3. Turn on the 'Snap all when dragging' toggle in the top toolbar area 4. Start dragging a node or multiple selected node or their handles. Nothing seems to snap to anything. As the help file points out, this feature is independent of the main snap setting. The other two toggles ('Snap to selected curves' and 'Snap to off-curve nodes') seems to be working fine. APhoto: 1.3.4 OS X: Mavericks 10.9.5
  22. Please add selection rectangle snapping to APhoto. When snapping is enabled and the grids are visible, when I drag a selection it is not snapping to the grid. Would be nice to enable/add this feature. Thanks.
  23. Hi, Is there a way to make bezier handles snap to 45 or 90 degrees? Most apps allow for this by holding down shift, but shift behaved differently in Affinity Designer, snapping to the existing curve. The only workaround i've found so far is to use the pen tool to redraw the bezier curve by clicking and dragging on the same point while holding shift. Is there another way to do this? Thanks.
  24. I created a document which is now ready for printing. I realized, that I made it to big. A few millimeters. So I created a slice in the export personna and some guide lines, to cut off 2 millimeters on each side. Now, slices do not snap to my guide lines, and I just cannot position it properly. If there is an other way to cut my document by 2 millimeters on each side, let me know. I just need to export it as pdf for printing.
  25. Make a character panel that can be snapped to the side-bars (much like layers, effects, styles etc) This makes global & multiple character & paragraph style changes easier to implement.
