  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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 .
  7. 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
  8. Hello, is it possible to make the toolsbar larger? Thank you
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Hi! Maybe someone asked this before, but wasn't able to find a specific discussion. So please delete this if needed. I'd like to have an option to enlarge Layer's preview/thumbnail, I'm getting old... Is this in your thoughts? Cheers, Paolo
  12. As someone who likes to have a full, always floating UI on desktop in Designer and Illustrator without having to hunt for everything, will there be any option for supporting this on iPad? I spend so much time tapping around it frustrates me a little. I have a 12.9” Pro so screen real estate isn’t really an issue for me. For example, I’d love to have layers, colour, and typography always open adjacent to each other instead of one or the other in the Vector persona.
  13. Hi, used "Separated Mode" for a bit, but I found it difficult to get gridlines on a design so I switched it back off. However, "Merge all windows" doesn't appear to do anything when I'm in "Separated Mode" - what is it supposed to do? Using Affinity Designer 1.6.1 on Mojave 10.14.1
  14. I haven't this been suggested before. I think it would be pretty useful to have pie menus for quick tool switching. I haven't seen this in image editors, but I think it's pretty common for 3d modeling: In this app, for example, you can customize them to have multiple levels, you can have quick color selections, etc. I think it allows for very a very quick access to common options.
  15. Hello. I don't speak English very well, so I will try to show everything with examples. P.S. I love this application.
  16. So to use dynamic zoom you have to hit spacebar then ctrl. Is there a way to swap this or allow it to do both? I'm so used to hitting ctrl + spacebar. With my mindset being: start from the outside of the keyboard and working my way inward while hitting hotkeys. Thanks!
  17. Hi, I'm often using Affinity to draw with a pen on my windows laptop and the most frustrating part is undoing strokes. When using the laptop as a tablet, the keyboard is folded away and I can't press Ctrl+Z. While I've read that there's no touch based interface planned, I would love to be able to add shortcuts to some basic actions like undo/redo to the toolbar like this for example: Actions I would use in the toolbar would be: Undo/Redo Changing selection mode (add to selection, remove from selection, new selection) for objects on the canvas and for layers Grouping selected Layers
  18. Right hand is always holding the pencil, and left hand is free. It will be much more convenient if the undo button is on the left side.
  19. It would be awesome for all UI designers that we could import Sketch App file format into Affinity Designer, would not it? Is there any chance to see this feature request landing in the foreseeable future, what do you think about it?
  20. Hello again, I have few other questions: • Is it possible to choose another color for highlights? There is already quite much blue and I'de rather had them in a warmer easier way to see the highlghts immediately. • How can one fix a hard space (to avoid having a ":" at a sentence beginning)? • When searching a glyphs (":" in my case), they appear all in a list, but won't be highlighted all at once. • When clicking on a found element in the list, the highlight happens only if I select the "A" icon in the UI. It turns back to "A-frame" each time I click on the next searching line. With few dozen of the identical glyphe to be checked, it soon gets heavy. RECTIFICATION: In the meanwhile, Publisher quitted, and something changes when reopened. I went on with correcting the none hard spaced ":" and notice that, with "A-frame" icon on, a grey highlight appears now with search line selected.
  21. Using Affinity Designer, I made a UI of a make-belief browser called Surfer. When ever I search the web, I need to be organized, and I need to browse in style. I feel that there are some areas in browsers that can be improved, so I decided to present my idea here. Let me know what you think.
  22. The UI for changing the text styles in the main window is robust and of high quality. It would be useful if it were easier to redefine existing text styles, or create new ones based on the customised text we already have established via overrides. The current version, where you have to create new text styles manually via the text menu is a little awkward.
  23. Ok, so one of the paramount useful features of Sketch is layout grids. Being able to define a layout grid with columns and gutters without resorting to a mess with guides is great. I believe the Affinity could improve greatly on the Sketch grid, so here is my proposition for the improved layout grid and thoughts on how it could interact with the constraints feature that really needs to be fleshed out as well. First of all Affinity Layout Grid Create Movable grids with columns and gutters Grids should be resizable but should keep their ratios Support for breakpoints in grid definition, eg. the same grid should switch to mobile view if resized smaller. Padding around the grid should be separated from gutter values. Support snapping Support nameable size ranges (breakpoints) (eg. define XL as a range, L as a range etc.) Affinity Improved Constraints Support fixed distance padding eg. 20px manually entered Constrain to columns from the layout grid Support and remember breakpoints when constraining to layout grid Toggle visibility based on layout grid range Reflow text options Support minimum flex, (eg. resize with this untill this unit is 100px wide) support Div flowing, when resized smaller than minimum flex, reflow other objects as divs would. Support different symbols based on layout grid range, toggle to replace an area with another symbol when going down to small views I'd love to see any number of these features implemented, with things like this we could actually create responsive flexible layouts that would be able to be resized instead of creating multiple views for each page.
  24. I’d love to see better consistency within the Affinity apps. Small things like the order of buttons make a real difference. Almost everwhere, the cancel button is first and then the confirm button is on the right. Unless you press Save A Copy. (See buttons) on iPad I so quickly skip around the interface because it is so intuitive, but a small change like this can throw me. Seems small, but makes a big difference. My other UI gripe is some buttons are either in strange places or don’t make sense. 1. Why do I have to close a document to save it it place? I only have save a copy when the document is open. I’d like to be able to quickly save. (I’ve had documents crash before and I’ve lost the data because I didn’t hit save ever. Kinda my fault, but I think this could help) 2. Why can I lock and hide layers in two places? This is not a bad thing but feels confusing. Means I forget where certain settings are and doesn’t help set a precedent for where I should find certain types of settings. 3. Why is rasterise not in the generic layer menu? (And can the layer menu not auto hide after rasterising? Or should I pin it to stop this behaviour?) 4. When resizing the canvas, can we have the nice transform square from the transform menu rather than the text-based popout? I know my right from left, but that square is so much easier to understand and edit Note: the first four pictures are related to the cancel/action button order These small gripes make me sound incompetent but I’m not! Haha. I say these because I love the apps and want them to be better.
  25. Hello Two major issues with affinity when coming from mac and adobe or word or excel or any other software out there: It would be really great if Serif could stick to standards here a bit more (and help users a real lot): It is really common that CMD+Enter does a new soft line break (no new paragraph), not CTRL+Enter - in all Software I know including all Web-Editors in CMSes It is also in the same way common, that OPTION scales from center and SHIFT limits scaling to contain proportions Using MS Office, Photoshop, InDesign and others I stumble every single day upon these differences when switching apps - please unstress my daily racing brain a bit! Thanks! Alex
