  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Would be great if there will be tools for diagramming such as connectors, arrow or bullet ends and snap stroke to the object. See https://www.draw.io for example.
  4. I want to draw with the pen tool and the nodes shall snap to the grid. OK, that works, But: can I make a fixed grid e.g. every mm? As I see the grid changes automatically when zooming in/out. A fixed grid would be necessary for exact drawings not depending from zoom level I didn't find any menu to adjust this.
  5. Hi, I'm really enjoying Affinity Designer so far. However, I'm having some trouble with node snapping while using the pen tool. For example, if I try and draw a box with the pen tool (4 nodes, holding shift to draw vertical and horizontal lines), I can't seem to get the third node to "snap" to the last.. I have no idea where I should be clicking to align the node to finish the shape. Once the shape is closed, I don't seem to get any snapping hints when moving those nodes either. Am I missing a setting within the snapping settings in order to align nodes within the same shape? Or is this not an existing feature yet? Thanks!
  6. Think this might be handy: Have an option in the snapping manager to snap to all groups' (layers'?) bounds. Sometimes the object you want to snap to is right at the edge (or it's the single object of the layer/group) and you forgot to "hover" it to make it a snap candidate. You won't have to let go of the object you're moving, undo, hover, make the movement again etc. -- I'd love to see a smarter, automatic candidate selection: what if you hover with your selected object's edge near the edge you want to snap to, i'd just enable that object a candidate after half a second? You'd get the auto-snap to everything and it wont produce too many snap points while you drag an object over a complex document. -- Another thing i'd like to mention is that hovering to enable snap candidates right now is hard on wacom (because of natural hand jitter). So if i want to snap to small object I usually have to concentrate or zoom in and loose current layout/position in the document, which slows me down. Hope this might give you ideas on improvement.
  7. Two more things: 1) Scaling images and type sometimes is constrained automatically (i.e. without pressing SHIFT), sometimes not. 2) Snapping doesn't always consider near by objects - at least not at the first attempt. When dragging a second time objects /guides snap then as expected.
  8. Hey guys, Just picked up Affinity today after seeing it as Editor's Choice and then watching the video. It looks great. One thing that immediately struck me as odd, was that I couldn't snap a dragged guide to the edge of a marquee (like in PS). This is a big part of my work flow, as I'll measure out a specific size marquee and then place guides around it. I've read in a lot of posts while trying to find out if it's just me doing it wrong that the snapping system was undergoing changes. Is this still the case and could this be added if it's not already possible? It could just be that I'm doing it wrong, somehow.
  9. Hi, is there a way to start drawing a line with the pen tool from a curve anchor's handle? In Illustrator I select an anchor point to show its handles, pick the line tool and then start drawing at that handle (snapping). In my day to day logo design, this is one of the most used feature (the other being "tangent circle" from astute graphic plugin). Thanks, Federico.
  10. I'm trying to create a rectangle covering half the page snapping perfectly to the edge of the document with the pen tool. Struggling to get perfect accuracy. How do I get a node perfectly in the corner and then on the edges? Where am I going wrong?
