  1. Hello. I just purchased Affinity for both my Mac and iPad. While trying to learn the program on my Mac, I encountered two problems... 1) I cannot undo certain things. Example: if I click on a Style to see how it looks, there's no way to undo the effect. It's baked into that layer permanently. I encountered this issue during a free trial of Affinity and it was my #1 reason for not buying it originally. Surely I'm overlooking something?? 2) I applied one of the default Styles (Rainbow)...and while trying to figure out how to undo it, I accidentally deleted the Style altogether. How can I get it back? Thank you for your help! -E.T. Craven
  2. This is a request for an "Undo Break" option (to remove page, line, and other breaks from text). I have searched high and low and cannot find a way to remove a Page Break from my text formatting without undoing all the formatting (I have color, italics, bold, etc. within my text that I do not want to lose to remove this page break that keeps moving my text to the wrong page when I attempt to overlay an image (no, it's not a text wrap issue). Please help by upgrading the software to include an option to remove page, line or other text breaks without having to alter any of the other formatting within a given area of text. Thank you!
  3. Hello I am really enjoying drawing and pixel painting on my Tablet. I have a Assus and remove my keyboard so that I can draw or paint more freely. I know this product is not meant for tablets, but it does perform wonderfully. My only problem is that to Undo, I must enter the File Menu each time. A undo or even the option to personalize the menu bar and add such a button would be great. I think PC/Tablets hybrids will become more popular especially among artist and designers. Who can afford a Wacom Tablet these days. My cheap Assus Tablet runs Affinity wonderfully, except for a undo button. Thanks for a wonderful product.
  4. Hi, i tried using the undo brush tool. I made that on a tiff with two layers. Background is a B&W Conversion flattened above is one curve layer taking some adjustments. I thought i can use it with different blendmodes blending together with the underlying layer or the last snapshot. Now, surprise surprise ... if i use the brush , the strokes bring back the COLOR information... I do not know why this is possible because i have no color information in any of the layers -> everything is converted in B&W. What do i or cannot understand ? Any suggestions ? Thank you for some answers !
  5. I've been using the Affinity Designer. However, I still find myself missing some of the straightforward options in DrawPlus. First, I think an Undo button at the top would be nice instead of having to go to Edit on the menu bar. Second, I like the Color section. What I miss is the simplified Publication pallet for quick colors. That being said, I think this Affinity Designer is a great product. My comments were geared to the many DrawPlus users who will eventually have to make a switch. It seems like a lot of that program is in this new Designer. The color selections alone are very impressive. Where would I find information on how to use the layer functions in Affinity Designer?
  6. Hello, Affinity crashes when I undo a action with the transparency tool when clicking the history panel to go steps back. Running on a surface pro 3 256gb edition. windows 10.
  7. From my example file, I try to change height of the Artboard. It works very well when I select each Artboard But if I select two Artboards and change its height, I will lose my work inside the Artboards and cannot undo it. test_artboard.afdesign
  8. Noticed a frustrating issue in Designer. Description below; .gif attached. When I duplicate and move an object by option- or command-dragging, and then I undo, I often wind up with a "stack" of erroneous duplicates in the object's original position. This can be hard to notice, and often results in a cluttered layers panel and a heavy document. The issue here is that in other apps, the convention is that option-dragging is a single command, which is entirely cancelled by an undo. But in Designer, an option-drag is actually two commands: there is an implicit copy at first, and then a translation. Undo only reverses the translation, not the copy. It's hard to remember to undo twice when I've only performed one action, and the resulting pileup of artwork is easy to miss. Thanks a ton, Serif—I love Designer, and you guys are just amazing!
  9. It would be nice if on the UNDO menu selection, it showed which operation is to be undone. If you have a number of undo's it's nice to know when to stop. Thanks.
  10. Hello--I'm just learning to use Affinity Designer and Astropad and the Apple Pencil. Has anyone experienced AD making a tinkling rejection sound when trying to undo or activate certain actions with the large circle on Astropad? I can use the side tool bar on Astro to zoom in and out but cannot get it to undo. It's tedious going back to the keyboard to command z, and Astropad doesn't capture/show my very top Mac tool bar that has "edit" so I can't undo that way. Thanks for any thoughts, advice.
  11. OK so I just duplicate something by holding option and drag it to somewhere, no problem so far. But when I want to undo this, I need to cmd + z "2 times" in order to 1. move back the duplicated one to the original position (A "transform" record in History) AND 2. Delete the duplicated one (A "duplicate" record in History). This is NOT A BUG literally, but it's a little bit annoying and counterintuitive. Because, to me personally, I tend to subconsciously think "holding option and drag" as "one step", but it takes "two steps" to undo. Hmmm... so weird. I'm not sure if anyone has the same feeling :( or if I missed something please let me know :) :) :) (I think Adobe illustrator does better in this case though)
  12. Overall it's a cool way to innovate the camera raw module from Photoshop. I have three issues so far however. First, I'm not sure why when I press Return, the image becomes extremely over exposed. The more I press it, the more exposure. If it's a hotkey, I don't think it should be on the Return key. Second, the undo feature does not work. There needs to be a way to undo (command Z) rather than having to mouse to the sliders. Third, when I adjusted the shadows and brought them up (brighter shadows) the colors became muddy. I know it's not the photo because when I preform the same action in Lightroom this does not happen. I am working with a raw file so I'm not sure what's going on but it feels like I'm working with a JPG.
  13. One of the things that I love about Affinity Designer is the History palette. I always thought it was odd that Photoshop had a History Palette but Illustrator didn't. There is one thing that I think that could be added that would be useful (at least to me). In addition to the History palette, I think it would be useful if the "undo" command showed what it was going to undo. For example "Undo delete", as of now it only says "undo" but it doesn't say what action it is going to undo.
  14. Hi. A huge feature to have would be undo stack to be saved to affinity files. That way, we could work on projects as if we never left them. Additionally in fact, a full versionning system could be great, but if we also could - name some steps so that we can go back and forth in our edit history - freeze edits below a certain point (but still see what it looked like and copy elements from those steps) - export at some points in 'time' - have time and date for each edit This is to be able to cope with customers that cannot take decisions and be able to always get back on previous edits to show what it looked like at that moment. You could say that i should save each and every results, but you never know in advance what you will need and that is 1: a huge disk and time loss to organise it and 2: not an absolute way of ensuring that you always be able to sort things out. You cannot save everything manually.
