  1. UnicornTapestry

    Skin

    This may have been mentioned by others. One of the obstacles facing Photoshop users wanting to migrate to Affinity is that Adobe users find it difficult to locate corresponding tools, palettes, and menus. Possibly Serif wanted to avoid similarities because of real or supposed copyright issues. I come from a software development background. If Serif could allow users to customize their own interface, that might help. I'm thinking in particular of bespoke 'skins', where an encompassing Photoshop-like UI filters commands from the user to the underlying Affinity program. It would take a burden off users.
  2. It's not anything that I think has been done in an image manipulation program before. I'm currently demoing Photo for work, as we're going to probably drop our CC subscription, and I was just thinking, as I go back and forth between multiple photos of the same object that I'm editing for our website and product books, how nice it would be if the layers tab could be addended or part of the individual document windows so one could compare what has and hasn't been done to each photo. Would probably look something like the attached image.
  3. Hello. I request the addition of UI size scaling. That item should be added to the user interface page of the preferences. The current default UI size is too small for display on WQXGA or 4K monitors. (Especially text such as menus)
  4. I have grown to like many of the features of Affinity Designer (and Photo and Publisher). And I think that the interface has improved (or I have gotten more accustomed to it). But... I still am not a fan of the flatness of the UI elements. I think a 3d-look is more usable. (Even Microsoft has found its way back to a more 3d-oriented UI with Office 2019, compared to Office 2016 which was very flat.) For example I think that studio palettes should have drop shadows like for example the tools palette has, when it is not docked. And I think that each palette should have some kind of border or some other way of showing what belongs to it and what not. I can work much better if I can quickly and easily see what belongs to a particular palette and I do not have to take a second look or look very carefully. That is particularly important when many palettes are grouped so that they appear as tabs. A 3d-UI-look could make it immediately clear what is a tab, what is the active tab (i.e. active palette), what is a subgroup inside the palette and where the next tab/palette group starts. Also I think that the page should have a border (and/or a small dropshadow) so that one can make the artboard white as well without losing the information where the page starts and ends. For comparison: 1) This is the current UI in Affinity Publisher: 2) This would be the UI with drop shadow (rough sketch):
  5. I have a very difficult time visually scanning for a group that includes a selected layer when using the dark mode UI. To my eye, there's not enough of a difference between the gray background and the dark gray-blue highlight color, and I often miss it. I think it would be an improvement even if you brightened the highlight by a marginal amount as proposed below. Ideally, it would be great to be able to select my own highlight colors, but this would at least address the problem I have. Thank you.
  6. Hi, there is a mismatch between the titlebar colour of the preferences window and the background colour of its toolbar as you can tell from the attached screenshots. Congrats for the release by the way!
  7. In the past couple days, the Studio palettes on the righthand side (Affinity Photo for Desktop on MacOS Mojave) have been randomly resizing: sometimes much wider and sometimes much narrower than the default. As there seems to be no means of manually resizing their width, I'm assuming this is a bug of some sort. Has anyone else encountered this? - Brad, Icecastles Photography
  8. Part of my workflow for doing flat fills on comics and the like is to do a magic-wand selection and then to consistently grow my selection by a fixed amount to "bleed" into the line art, usually by 3 px or so. Every time I open the 'grow / shrink' menu it's reset back to 0, however. I would love a way to always grow by the same amount, either by defining a macro that does it by a specific amount or by having the last amount stay active in the dialog box which comes up. Additionally, it would be nice if I could use the tab key or similar to change the focus within the dialog box; currently tab just toggles the UI visibility.
  9. I'd like to change the keyboard shortcuts for how I cycle through tabs. I've been looking for a way to change the keyboard shortcut for it within the app but I haven't found it yet. Am I missing it somewhere? Perhaps it's called something I didn't expect?
  10. Hello! Affinity Designer on mac for a very long time. I liked everything. Now I installed Affinity Designer on Windows. And I cry with bloody tears, I don’t understand why such “delays” are “glitches”. The canvas moves smoothly, but all panels (for example, layers, stroke) work very slowly, especially if they are “disconnected” from the interface. It is also difficult to move the panels, jerks and delays. By the way, in beta version 1.7 there are almost no such problems, everything works smoothly. Except for the layers panel PC configuration: intel i7-9800X CPU@3.80GHz GPU 1080 Ti 32g RAM Windows 10 pro Affinity Designer version 1.6.5.135 (downloaded from site) Can this problem be fixed?
  11. Hi, just wondering if it is better practise to create assets for use again as veftor or raster?
  12. Hi! As many of us, I'm used to the UI of adobe – although we may not like every behaviour – much of it has proven to be at least consistent and practical. I encourage the affinity-team to experiment and try new ideas for a workflow optimised UI that's fun and easy to use – it does not have to stay the way adobe settled. But what I'm essentially missing is a way to keep all the _different_ panels arrangements I need per usage - so called "Workspaces" in adobes parlance: Maybe that is what the "Personas" are for, which is an interesting approach, but I use workspaces to quickly fill my screenS(!) with all the relevant panels and to close the not relevant ones for the job I'm doing right now. It's not always just "Exporting" and "Drawing" like the personas allow me to use – sometimes I need e.g "Screendesign", "Typesetting"or "27 + 21,5inch Monitor maximized" "13inch Laptop minimal" (I'm speaking of the separated mode, of course) Second use-case is to be able to move my Workspaces to a different computer or a new system-installation. I already have to arrange the panels on the 3 Affinity-Apps times 2 (beta) on three machines (3*2*3=18) which is not fun to keep just roughly synchronised... Is there a way to manually get the .plist-file and put it on the new machine, I'm not sure where the panel-positions are stored.
  13. For most fonts selected, the rendering of the font features is unhelpful and just looks bad. To reproduce, open the 1.7.0.249 beta version of Publisher, pick a font, and click the Typography button. I see the following on Windows 10 Pro 1803.
  14. Does anyone know of any UI kits for Designer that are specific to wireframing websites or apps? I have the UI Grade Kit but not exactly what I'm looking for.
  15. This is a 2017 project I was not yet able to showcase. It was a fantastic project to create and design the iPad version ( plus a UI for the plug in version) from the polyphonic synthesizer Redominator (Audiorealism) that finally was not released due to business reasons out of my control. However, it was nearly finished both from design and dev points of view, and I'm showcasing it a couple of years later, so I can tell you that back in the day, apart from a couple of little bugs moving things with the cursor keys and some issues I had with the slicing part, the whole experience overall was lots of fun and I loved it, as much as the result. This is a preview of the interface. You can see many more details and a test demo video on this link: https://www.behance.net/gallery/75938293/UI-deisgn-Redominator-(Polyphonic-Synthesizer)-iPad-Air?
  16. Greetings, I am re-suggesting this to encompass all the Affinity products, especially Affinity Designer and Affinity Publisher. For the most part, Affinity cursor and tool icon shapes are very clear to understand and the cursors match well with their tool icons, except for the Move Tool. When switching between the Move Tool and the Node Tool with keyboard shortcuts, the two cursors are so similar they are quite visual ambiguous. I suggest changing them so they are consistent and clear for the user. My suggestion below is not the only solution— you may have a better one. I really hope you can reduce the user interface ambiguity and increase the consistency.
  17. Looking for a little guidance here using Affinity Designer on Windows 10. My issue is the highlight color used to indicate the active layer when the interface is in dark mode. That blue gets lost in the rest of the UI for me. It's just too close for my eye at least. I checked the other forum topics, and I found other similar complaints from Mac users, but not from Windows 10 users. It appears that I don't have a way to change that highlight color, either through the program or through the OS. Or do I? Am I missing something? Thanks for any help you can give me.
  18. Just discovered (damn I use that box so seldom) so it's probably already known, but just for completness I'll file it in here then again ... Even when the whole main window is horizontal resized, the box stays like that in the German localized UI, so that the dropdown box handle is always partly hidden and thus not really visable.
  19. I am really liking publisher so far, and can imagine working with it professionally in the future. I am using indesign cs5.5 at the moment and one thing I would like to see in publisher which is in this program is collapsible panels. I like to have some panels open all the time, like character, paragraph, pages and color. This already fills my workspace pretty much, but I would like other options quickly available too, but not take up space all the time, f.i. the text frame option, the text styles and stroke options. Having some way to group a couple and minimize them would be very helpful.
  20. Hello, it would be really awesome if AD could add a simple, generic Batch Builder that can export coordinates for Artboards and Slices and basic information for exported object layers to either JSON or XML: Any slice Coordinates Slices created from objects Stroke: Thickness, Color & Alignment Fill: Color Slices created from text frames (assuming a constant style for the entire frame) Family Weight Size Alignment Bonus points for any additional properties (everything in the contextual context toolbar and the effects panel may be of interest) That would dramatically increase the usefulness for UI design in collaboration with development teams! We're currently trying to use the Spine JSON-Export to automatically create design specs for our dev team, but the proprietary structure (origin in bottom left, anchor at center of any object, no text support) makes it kind of finicky. It's awesome that it's there, but a few more attributes would make it much more useful for us. If it's too time intensive to make a pretty JSON/XML-file, I'd also settle for Batch Builder that prints a parsable ToString()-Dump of the document tree .
  21. Please get some of your developers/designers/testers 5k iMacs to test with. I'm sure the UI works well with a laptop/notebook sized screen but as far as I'm concerned it's unuseable on my iMac. I am 54 years of age and wear glasses but I work with loads of other apps on my iMac with no problem. I'm not asking you to change your UI - just to add the option to scale it up. I know you have some preferences to scale things up but none of them get anywhere near making the UI useable for me. I love your apps, I love your company, I just can't work with the miniscule icons and text. :)
  22. Hi It would be very useful to improve the UI of all Affinity Apps by giving us: open/close left studio panel and open/close right studio panel as a keyboard shortcut C
  23. Hey everyone! It would be very helpful if, when using tools, all of the UI, except for the icon on the top right that lets users enable the UI again, could be automatically hidden. There could be a timer, which shows the UI again after a period of time. The amount could be set in settings. Procreate has this automatic full screen mode and it's very useful. Best wishes, Shu
  24. Hey, please make the Resource Manager available to the Studio palettes for better integration in the UI. I need it right by my side all the time like the Layers and Pages panels. Please also add more options to pieces of information like Color Space, Transparency, Rotation, Dimensions, File Path etc already in the list. Cheers Benny
  25. Hey everyone! It would be great if there was a way to rearrange the UI (tools and icons like layers or symbols). Also, including tools like gaussian blur, that can be added as optional tools on desktop, would be great. Best wishes, Shu
