Dragging images from Safari doesn't drag the image - just a box with text containing link to the file. I am not sure if it was this way since beginning but it just doesn't work now (using latest beta). Images dragged from finder work well but images taken from safari usually don't work.
This seems like it may be a shortcoming of Safari, but when I drag an image from a webpage onto a Designer document I get a Frame Text layer with the URL of the image instead of the actual image. Chrome seems to work as expected and I can drag an image right onto a document. Is support for dragging Safari images into Designer docs a possible feature for a future release? Thanks!
This is something I used to do a lot on Photoshop (which I've now deleted, thanks to Affinity Photo! ;)). 1. Browse the web and find some image. 2. Click and drag the image on the webpage onto Affinity Photo's main window. 3. Expected result: The image is opened as a new document, that's how Photoshop handles it. But what Affinity Photo does: It creates a new Text layer in the current document and puts the web URL of the image in it (lol). It *is* possible to open images if I instead drop the web image onto the Affinity Photo *icon* in the dock. But that's annoying when you've got an auto-hiding dock (like I do) and it just seems *weird* to have it create a text-layer when you drop an image onto the main window. I guess the reason it creates a text-layer is that the application takes dropped *text* and creates a text layer, or dropped *image files* and loads the image, but lacks specialized "dropped image URL" detection and reverts to the text-handling.
When I first downloaded Affinity Designer I was able to drag a picture from Safari to the project I was working on. Now when I do that all that shows up on the project is the website address of the picture and no picture! What changed? What am I doing wrong?
