  1. Hello, I recently noticed that version 1.8 presents a user interface that is difficult to understand about (new) document formats. Here I present a proposal about the user interface and would like your feedback. Thanks Thanks
  2. Keyboard shortcut entry is missing in Publisher Beta 1.8.2.603/Preferences/Keyboard Shortcuts/View ... table. Other studio panels can be assigned very handy shortcuts. This is not the case with Preflight panel.
  3. Please add a histogram with sliders to the levels adjustment just like in the desktop version.
  4. 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.
  5. First of all, sorry for the bad pun in the title. But this is my feeling, when I start e.g. APu. Working area on the left monitor and most needed tools on the right monitor. The overall gray appearance between the panels makes it sometimes hard to distinguish them. We have three applications which have a "brand" colour of their own. Why not using these colours inside the applications? E.g. orange headers or orange overlines for the panels in APu? Just a thought. P.S.: I know I can use the Dark Theme, but personally dislike it. It is a matter of taste and I am used to it for over thirty years now.
  6. When trying to rename a style category it takes the one before in the list. Same on delete style category. Affinity Designer 1.8.1 OSX 10.13.6
  7. Greetings friends, So there is this bug which I have not been able to go around for a week or so. Whenever I try and use any of the already made assets that you can use on Affinity Designer, the program stops responding and I am left with a black screen on the program window. I have tried many solutions recommended such as uninstalling and reinstalling the program, I have tried deleting the program files, and have tried deleting the App Data files. Nothing worked. Honestly, this is not something I can find a solution for, so if anybody has any solution or have encountered this previously, then please do share it. Video: Have a great evening/morning/afternoon.
  8. The UI presentation between masking and clipping layers needs to be improved. The difference is too minor and too similar. When working with a lot of layers, this becomes even more difficult to see.
  9. UI text color on radio selection is inconsistent with the rest. See image below. This occurs both in 1.8.1 and beta 1.8.2.
  10. The UI default font seems too thin and the spacing clunky when the UI "big" font is used. The UI default font seems too small even when set to "big" (using 2560x1440 resolution on a LG 4k monitor)
  11. Two related requests: 1. It would be nice to be able to read measurements using the Measurement tool without having to zoom in to 1600% all the time. 2. It would also be nice to have measurements be visible on blue objects. Sketch does this very, very well. Attached is a screeenshot of the same objects at 100% in both apps with measurements displayed using the default measurement tools (Option-hold in Sketch, CMD-hold in Affinity Designer). I recolored the background in the AD for a second screenshot to highlight that the text on measurements should probably change when the background is near the same blue as the default font color.
  12. There is a bug in the navigation of the "preferences" UI. The arrows "left" and "right" are not working properly. The "right" one is not working and the "left" one is taking you back to the main selection.
  13. I am sure this has been mentioned but I find the document loading feed back on the trio of the application very poor. Can you please consider using the progress bar dialogue you use when exporting, also on opening documents? At the moment it is very poor. Apart from that loving Affinity products and to hell with Adobe!!!
  14. There it goes, my inspiration that is, out of the window, and I lost it trying to change who knows what shortcut key... again. As a professional in video, animation, 3d and audio I have used many many applications over the years, and find Affinity package a real refreshing leap forward. However, I must admit that the preferences window across all three Affinity apps (Photo, Designer and Publisher) is one of the most useless I have ever encountered. I am not afraid to switch and learn applications and am ready to customize the new ones I learn to my own best practices, and the preferences window is my friend or it should be, but Affinity's is not at all. Please let me try to explain what I find is wrong with and suggest some changes which I did not think a lot about, but seem much simpler to use. Let's start: 1. The preferences window uses a unique visual paradigm, completely different from any other dialogue I have encountered in the rest of the application. It has a header with Back/forward buttons, "home" button (with an odd icon and a drop-down menu) and search bar. No other panel, toolbar, manager, assistant or any other window in Affinity uses this paradigm or at least my humble knowledge of the app does not bring any into the mind. I doubt that this is good. For instance having tabs, like some other windows would do the trick no need for back/forward buttons, no need for home button, no need for drop-down menu, just 7 simple instantly accessable tabs. 2. search bar is a sneaky red herring! It is in fact dangerously useless! I'd like to change a shortcut for brush size in pixel persona? typing any of these terms does not help me to find where to do it. It seems that this search bar is good for searching only a couple of dozen words which does not make any sense at all, either you make every single preference item that can be change searchable or get rid of the search bar because the way it is now is frustratingly useless. 3. I will not go in depth on my thoughts about "General", "Color", "Performance", "User Interface" and "Tools" pages as I do see some benefit of "bite sized" preferences pages even if some items on them seem to belong to another page, and the number of these pages could actually be decreased. (for instance half of the "Tools" preferences could easily belong to "User Interface" tab) 4. Checkboxes, since they have really powerful results would benefit from tooltip help with a more verbose description of what they do. 5. "Miscellaneous" could easily be renamed to "factory resets" or something on that line, as that is what it does. 6. And now I come to my nemesis, the "Keyboard Shortcuts" page. Where to start?! a) there is a search bar on the upper right, that is as we said a sneaky trap, and a red herring. It does not help us here, and will take us "home" probably finding nothing of interest. b) we need to use these two fiddly drop-downs. The first one could easily be replaced with beautiful Draw, Pixel and Export icons cutting the number of actions for picking persona to edit to only one click (or even better none.. read on). The second one is really unintuitive as its items partially overlap in different personas. It took me a while to get the idea that this second one is contextual to the first one (as the list changes "behind the curtain")... I got it only after learning my way a bit around the app so I recognised that some items belong to some personas. c) a quick overview of other buttons and check boxes in this upper region of Keyboard Shortcuts page; "Apply to all" -what? to all what? I had to dig through the manual to see what it does, and all it would take to fix it is to call it "apply shortcut changes to all personas" without this information there is no way to know that there actually are some connections possible between personas. As if the for instance, brush size in pixel and draw persona must be separate. "Ignore Modifier—Lets you create shortcuts using a single letter designation instead of using keyboard modifiers." says the manual, and I still do not get it. Does it allow me to pres only the letter in application without modifier keys and get what I want? No, as Ctrl+S is stil "save" and "Ctrl+Shift+S" is stil Save as. Does it filter out the input of Modifier keys while assigning new shortcuts? No. So what does it do? Maybe a better explanation in manual would help, and a more verbose checkbox title or tooltip. "Load/Save" what? it loads and saves what? a file obviously, but what does that file contain? All shortcuts, or only those in focus? Maybe "Load Shortcut configuration" or something on that line would be better. to be continued...
  15. I'm new to Affinity Designer, coming from Adobe Illustrator. Still a learning curve, but the transition has been pretty smooth so far, so that's awesome. One thing that I'm missing however is the flexible tabs/windows, so the ability to drag the windows from the tabs. So for example when I open 5 different vector files for, it creates 5 tabs. Each file sits in it's own tab. In Photoshop or Illustrator, I could just mouse click and drag each one these tabs out, so they create a free floating windows. I could then just drag the artwork elements from one window to another. In Affinity, this doesn't seem possible. So the tabs stay tabs and the only way to place artwork from one tab to another is to copy and paste as I can't drag the artwork between the tabs. Or is there a way to do this? Also Adobe has a feature called 'Paste in place'. So when I copy an element from one artboard, I can paste it into the exact same spot of the other artboard (if the artboard is of same specs of course) Is there anything like this in Affinity? Thanks
  16. Hello, Fellow UI designer here, just wanted to suggest a few tweaks to the layers panel, 1. Add an even smaller thumbnail setting and maybe even a no thumbnail setting (Not for me but I think some people might like it). The UI is already scaled quite bigger than I'd like and wastes a lot of space from the actual view window. 2. Add the ability to copy paste things from the layers panel, for example: If I hold down CTRL and drag a layer it should let me make a copy of it. It's different than duplicate because it allows me to put the copy anywhere I want directly. 3. Lock icon in the layer itself, it's annoying having to click the layer and then going up and click the lock icon, I already use the shortcut to lock thing but still, annoying. Maybe make the icon appear alongside the checkmark icon as you hover the cursor on top of the layer? I hope you address this in the upcoming updates! Thanks.
  17. This may seem like a small detail, but it constantly trips me up when opening new documents that the top default tool in Affinity Photo is for some reason the View tool (Hand, for panning around) and not the arrow pointer Move tool. This is different for some reason in Photo, whilst both Affinity Designer and Publisher follow the convention of most other tool-based graphics software that have move/select tools as the first default tool and the view/pan tool placed by the zoom tool. Seems extra strange since the View tool is probably the one tool I never use as it's so easy to pan around with middle mouse button or space bar. So if you don't have any good reason for this, please change the default top tool to the Move tool and move the View tool down like in your other software.
  18. I usually work in separated mode on my Mac. I have two huge displays to view my document in full screen AND put most of the expanded panels on the other. There are gaps between them becaouse I like to temporarly put eg. the brushes near the center of my main screen for fast access. Afterwards I put it back. So I don't fill the second screen completely with the panels, and the underlying Finder-windows are not very easy to tell apart where you click. A mac-typical shadow around the panels would help here. I compared it to Indesign and there is no shadow too, but it is more visible. Maybe we just need a darker outline/border in Light Mode?

  19. I've used Affinity Photo for several attempted projects, and the one issue I'm having is the ability to move a selection. I am logging this as a bug because if I make a selection with the rectangle tool I can press the SHIFT key and it will lock into being a 1:1 square, so the action of the shift+drag+select=1:1 square tool works as it does in Ps. Now if I need to move that selection around on the screen, I would normally just hold the SPACE bar and it would enable me to move the selection. Can you point me to adjusting the quick-keys to work in this way, or if this is a bug that can be fixed?
  20. Quite often I encounter problem where the toolbox with the measuring distance is hidden behind the anchor of the bounding box of the object. See below the image for details . Even simple zooming out doesn't help to show the numbers in the toolbox. To go around it it is always necessary to zoom out to very small zoom ration and then the toolbox will appear - see 2nd image. I know this is just UI tweak and probably the measurement toolbox should be displayed next to the anchor. Does anyone encounter this?
  21. While working on a file, having both the "Colour" and "Swatches" panels open, I thought both offer a fair amount of wasted white space. Secondly I thought "why are these two panels separate anyways?". Both utilities compliment each other, complimentary colour pun intended, and it would clear up the UI a bit more for users with preference for minimal opened panels and/or smaller screens. Why not split the revised Colour panel into two columns: colour wheel/meters/editing components on the left-hand side, and the swatches on the right. I've made a quick, rough mockup of this as attached.
  22. Hello Affinity, I was wondering if you guys are going to include a Prototyping Software for UX. I have purchased Affinity Designer and I loved it. I just wanted to know whether you guys are planning to add Prototyping Persona or maybe lunching a Prototyping software for UX since the User Experience industry is booming. I have created this UI in Affinity Designer and I would want to add interactivity to it. Like add transition effects, design overlays, clickable buttons to go from one artwork to another and record the whole process and render it as a video for user testing. I have also did a mini project and attached it in this form so it could give you guys an idea. Thank you
  23. Version 1.7.3 HyperLink Property Dialog in Mac Japanese Edition, "Hyperlink Type" translate "ハイパーリンクタイプ". Some text is not displayed. Maybe it depends on the Mac OS version.
  24. A number of apps allow me to set the font size of the text in the UI (for example menu and other section headings) Is this possible with Affinity? If not how do I request the feature?
  25. Hi! I just jumped into Affinity Designer for iPad. I immediately found two things that disappointed me a lot. Table changes color after adding a new artboard. For someone who spends 16+ hours daily behind screens for a living, having a dark mode or the ability to select a darker scheme is a must and most of the times, a dealmaker. I loved the dark UI but why does it needs to change to light gray after I add a new artboard? In the desktop version there’s an option to change that behavior but not in the iPad version. So far the solution is to create a huge black vector square, lower the opacity, lock the layer and create everything on top of that. The artboard names are always on display. I would make them appear only when the user activates the artboard tool. So far, everything else has been working like a charm. Greetings!
