  1. Today I alt+dragged a group do duplicate it. The group was pinned to a text (and with wrapping applied). As soon as I started dragging it, the copy was stretched to incorrect size. If I alt+drag the item un-pinned it copies correctly. I tried with other kind of grouped objects and all of them gets distorted. It happens on single shapes too. Steps to reproduce behaviour: mage a group of objects (In my case, a rectangle and two text boxes) Apply a text wrapping and place over the text (In my case a squared wrapping) Pin the group to the text Alt-drag the group to make a copy. The cloned group gets horizontal distortion I've attached a publisher document with the example used. alt-drag-issue.afpub Publisher 1.8.4 MacOS 10.15.7
  2. Is it possible to copy gradients in Affinity Designer? How would you do it? If I wanted a repeating gradient to occur, it would be very time-consuming to individually create the gradient for many different objects.
  3. Is it not possible to respect the naming of a style when copying between two documents? I currently am making an e-book format from a larger format document. It is a process of duplicating the original to a smaller format. It has to be done page by page. When copying a single text frame with text, the target document already has and uses the same Style (name). However, the process of copying creates a new, sequentially numbered version of the same Style. This seems to be more with the created Styles than with the built-in default Styles. An example is a "Box" style that has been created with blue text and a grey background: "Box Blue". The source document has a single "Box Blue" and the target document has a single, identical, "Box Blue." When I copy then paste another frame with that Style, a new Style is created: "Box Blue 1." This happens repeatedly and, as one example, I have 75 sequentially numbered new Styles all with the same settings and same name except for the sequential numbering. This plays havoc with the built-in concept of using a single Style to control many objects using that Style.
  4. I've bee experiencing two recurring issues/bugs using your suite of programs for quite some time now. 1) selecting and copying all layers in a file cause the program to close immediately 2) selecting all layers and clicking on a color (to change the color of the selection) makes the program freeze/crash It happens with all programs (Photo, Designer, Publisher), on two different PCs I own (a desktop and a notebook, both running Windows 10, latest version). All programs are up to date (1.8.2.620) now, but I've been experiencing these issues since at least september 2019. Attached is a file where you should easily (I hope) replicate both issues. If you need any additional information (or maybe a video of what happens?), I will be glad to help. Thank you for your support, Davide BIT_pannello_4-5.afdesign
  5. Maybe the commands I'm after are before my eyes and I'm just not seeing them... Programs like Microsoft Word have "copy and paste text formatting" commands. The commands store character formatting and you can later paste the formatting to other text. With some editors, if a paragraph marker was part of the original selection, you can even paste the copied paragraph formatting—not just character formatting. Something like that could be very useful in Publisher. But are there such commands for use within text frames and I've just missed them? I see a keyboard shortcut for "paste style" but it seems to apply only to objects, not text formatting.
  6. I'm not entirely sure if this is a bug or a feature in Affinity Designer. But every time I drag a shape while holding command in order to copy the shape (while moving it) and then undoing that action, I've noticed that Affinity doesn't really undo that action. It still leaves a copy of that shape on top of the previous shape. For example, I command drag a shape in order to copy and move it. After undoing that action, one would think the shape is gone but then it's not. This isn't the case in illustrator and it's always throwing me off because I end up with multiple copies of the shape on top of each other. Any help or comment appreciated. Thanks!
  7. When I paste text into a text box created with the Frame Text Tool, the glyphs render with a white background rather than appearing with a transparent background. The white background only appears behind the glyphs themselves, like a highlight in a word processor (see image). This seems to happen only when pasting text in from the clipboard - not when entering text directly. I have just installed the updated Affinity 1.5.1. I'm not sure if this bug is new with the update, or was also present in previous versions. Andrew text-background-bug.tiff
  8. Hi, I been work on a big project with affinity designer for Mac and have noticed I'd have duplicate objects that I couldn't understand how they got created. I finally figured it out. When I select something, then option+drag it to make a duplicate, I get my duplicate object, but if I undo that function, AD just moves the new copy to the position of the original, it's not actually undoing the copying, just the dragging. If I undo again, then the copy gets deleted. I think this is a bug as the drag+option to create a copy is one step (two things happen at the same time) not two separate steps. So undoing should just delete the new copy entirely.
  9. Love to be able to copy single nodes, line segments, or a selection of nodes – including the exact geometry of any curve handles – and then paste it/them into the front node an open curve. With the option of pasting its mirror version – vertical, horizontal, or both. It is very hard to manually make a curve exactly match another one. Repeatability is crucial for precise work. Snapping control handles (when they arrive) will sure help, but copy/paste of any of a curve's (or shape's) selected bits would be supremo! You can easily copy an entire curve/shape, but not parts of one. You can do the former, delete what you don't need, and then attach the bits you need; but that's a long way round. I apologize if you've heard any or all of this before (and please correct me if any of this is already possible). Oh, and as Sven Kalkschmidt already suggested, the functionality of the following Illustrator plugin looks amazingly useful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpOaC5XGyZU Thanks for your attention, and keep up the awesome programming, Serif/Affinity!
