  1. As I found in this thread, very useful feature of both designer and photo is off by design. And when it's off it works partially, just enough to work as broken. I understand there is group of people who wants this off (I imagine huge imported technical documentation or something like this) But as a user more focused on UI /UX /illustration with quite managable hierarchies I propose to turn on this by default. Just a thought.
  2. Hey there, I always forget to check the "Save History File with Document" after creating a new one. I understand, that not everybody wants to save the history by default, because it would make a lot of files a lot larger (I guess so?). But for others it would be nice to have a Checkbox in the (User-)Settings to get the history saved with the document by default when saving a document. Perhaps it would even be possible, to have a "per document"-exception-setting. Greetings, Johannes
  3. How can I set a default font for interior pages so I can easily change to different font? I understand how to set a font per text box, but want a kind of global font so can all be changed in one place. Thank you!
  4. Hello, I've been reorganizing my vector brushes on Affinity Designer and came across an issue. What are the category names of the default Affinity Designer vector brushes? I have too many brush categories, which caused me to lose track of the Affinity Designer vector brushes. It would have been helpful if Affinity had labeled them as AD brushes, for organizational purposes. I found a link to the legacy Affinity Designer brushes, but not to the current default Affinity Designer brush category list. https://affinityspotlight.com/article/get-legacy-affinity-brushes/ Thanks for your help, Sam
  5. We often get asked what the purple lines are that surround some layers – the snapping candidates. The subject comes up a lot and is confusing for some beginners, as evidenced by the number of times it comes up as a question, e.g. today, June 1st, June 5th twice, May 23rd, May 21st, May 18th, May 17th, May 6th, May 5th, May 4th, etc. Would it be better if the applications used a different default Candidates setting so that Candidate List was something that users could find for themselves rather than it being the default? I realise that everyone has different preferences at different times – which is why we get a choice – but having a default which causes such confusion doesn’t seem right to me somehow. I have no personal preference as to what the alternative default would be, only that is probably shouldn’t be this one.
  6. macos 10.13 Affinity Publisher 1.7.3 is Defaulting as the Default app for video? when/after importing many thousands of video files from professional cinematography cameras, canon, red, etc into macos 10.13 Publisher is defaulting as the application to open the file causing the video to be inoperable? video used to import fine prior to installing Affinity Publisher anyone else having this issue? the video & icon should be defaulting to Quicktime file format & Quicktime icon not Publisher changing the default application in the 'info' window in the Finder does not help any ideas? thank you in advance
  7. Hi, I tried to find solution but couldnt. For other tools you can go to Edit > Defaults > Save - for selection tool it doesnt work I want to have default settings for Refine - not have to manually change it each time and switch off that weird "matte edges" option (who even uses that) Is there a way to have default setting for Refine Selection tool? Same as per my photo?
  8. I'm trying to just get a basic brush but everything that says 'reset' doesn't rest them (under more button and also under preferences pane)...any other ideas or is this a bug?
  9. Hi, I can only get my spellcheck in Affinity Designer (Windows) to work if I go to the language section at the bottom of the character panel and change it to English (British). The problem is that it won't stay as the default. For each new document I need to set it. If I open a previous document from when it wasn't working, I need to select the text first before it will use the British English language. It keeps using Unknown (en-Au). Does anyone know how to set it as the default please?
  10. When opening raw files the default setting is with Lens Correction, Chromatic Aberration Reduction and Remove Lens Vignette are toggled on. I get sharper images when these three filters are turned off. Is there way other than creating a preset and having to change every time I open a file?
  11. Dear all, New Affinity Designer user. Great software, absolutely love it. However, I've encountered an issue: the Pen tool fails to synchronize defaults from selection. I'm on Affinity Designer for Windows, v 1.62.97. My problem mirrors the problems encountered here and here. In summary: 1. The Pen tool does not save the defaults of my current selection. 2. When I change to the Pen tool, it always reverts to a setting without brushes. It only retains the last stroke and fill colours and pressure profile, but nothing else. 3. Further, when I've just changed to the Pen tool, I cannot click the Brush icon. When I click the Brush icon in the Stroke Panel, nothing happens. I can only select the Brush icon after I have put down two points via the pen tool. (Yet thereafter, when I click elsewhere, the settings are again lost.) 4. Clicking "synchronize defaults from selection" on any path does not save its style as the default, whether done via the toolbar or the Defaults in the Edit menu. 5. This problem of unexpected resetting/non-syncing of defaults does not happen with the Vector Brush tool. That tool synchronizes correctly. This seems to be a Pen tool issue. 6. My problem is similar to this post. I've read and understood the expected behaviour and tried out the proposed solution here, but the problem still occurs. I note that the supposed behaviour is simple as per this video, yet my attempt to replicate it has been without success. 7. I believe the Pen tool was working properly earlier today, and am surprised that it happened suddenly. I also believe that this bug cropped up after I heavily experimented with the Vector Brush tool, but this is just my guess. I have Affinity Designer running on two separate Windows installation (two different computers). Both have the same problems with the Pen tool, so this is not a local machine issue. Please help me, as this problem is quite bugging my usual workflow. I can try to make a video if necessary.
  12. Does anyone know what's the default setting for saving (not exporting) JPEG? After editing JPEG files with layers flattened, we could "save" the file directly. However, I don't know the quality and other settings when saving JPEG. I know I could export JPEG file with the settings I want, but to speed up the workflow, it'd be great if I could know and adjust the settings of default JPEG saving. If anyone knows how to do it, please let me know. Thank you very much for your help. Best regards, Sleepy
  13. Hi, When you choose to "Save As" for a new document, Affinity Photo defaults to ".afphoto", its native file format. If I wish to "Save As" to a different format, I have to "Export" instead. There may be numerous reasons why this is the default way Affinity Photo works, but it is really annoying. Why can't we choose which method to "Save As" when we, select "Save As", without having to resort to exporting instead? Users complained about this in Gimp for many years. As an artist I save the largest majority of my images, like many do I expect as .jpg, or .png. perhaps even .PSD to be compatible with other people. Occasionally I will use .aphoto, but I have to consider future archival options too. Other software doesn't open .afphoto files either, at least, not yet. Instinctively you head over to "Save As", intending to save your work, then think, "Damn!" and then have to cancel, then select the "Export" option from the menu instead. You might say that I'll get used to it eventually, but I've been using Affinity Photo since it came out and I still fall into the trap. I know that Affinity Photo's native file format is best for Affinity Photo, so it includes all your Adjustments etc, but can't we have the choice? Just a drop down menu like other software like Photoshop where Affinity chooses by default it's propitiatory format, but allows you to select an alternative if necessary? The "Export" option is so unnecessary, not just for me, but everyone I've talked to who uses Affinity Photo. Can we have the option please? Even if it's a option to tick in the Preferences? Thanks, Jay.
  14. How can I change the default value of my device? I have an 11 "ipad but the default device when I create a new document is iPad 9.7", so I have to change the option every time. Thanks, Vittorio
  15. I've moved the toolbars around all over the place, and I would like to get them back to how they were by default.
  16. Hi, Something that I find slows down my production is having to reselect my custom brush set (or currently used) brush set every-time I switch from designer or pixel panel. Can it come back to the last brush set used please? Having the possibility to choose our own default set we would be practical too. Thanks.
  17. I'm not sure if this is a bug on the Affinity (or Adobe's?) suite, or something else I'm not understanding. I'm betting on something I don't understand so I'd like to hear a word from someone knowledgeable in fonts. I've noticed the character leading default value is smaller and variable in all Affinity apps, while on Adobe with value is larger and fixed. On Adobe's software, no matter what font you choose, you will always get the same default leading value for a certain font size. Let's always use 18 pt for clarity sake. So in Adobe you'll always have a (21.6 pt) character leading value for a 18 pt font size, regardless of the font chosen. On Affinity for a 18 pt font size the leading will normally be (18 pt) too, but this value varies with the font chosen. I've only seen it going higher than (18 pt), but normally just a few decimal points. For example some fonts have a leading of (18.6 pt), others (18.4 pt). I have noticed an outlier though, Gabriola has a huge (30.6 pt) leading. For what it's worth, the Affinity values seem a lot closer to what I'm seeing in LibreOffice, for example Gabriola has a huge leading value in both. I'm not sure what to make of this... anyone knowledgeable in fonts can help me understand what's going on? Thanks!
  18. I'd like to find a way to remove the default paragraph styles - particularly unused styles - in Affinity Publisher. Is this possible? I prefer to create my own. Thanks in advance.
  19. Hi, I'm a new user of Affinity Photo and Designer. Is there a shortcut for setting foreground and background colors black and white like in Photoshop "D" key?
  20. I shoot landscapes with a Pentax K-1 which has an in camera HDR function, merging 3 images. When I import one of these files the imported image appears to be one of the three RAW files and not the merged one. I've looked in the Workbook and done a search for this but couldn't find anything. I only recently started using Affinity. My OS is Win 10. Is there a way to import the merged file? Thanks for any help.
  21. In a recent thread, members have been discussing whether or not Affinity Photo claimed file types for itself on installation. It seems that it does do so. I would request that, on installation, Affinity asks the user if it should be the default file type for those files which it can open. Many other programs do this and it is a helpful feature. John
  22. Is there a way to switch the brush colours back to the original black and white with "one" click?
  23. As someone who uses both the Opener app (https://www.opener.link/) and Affinity Designer in iOS, I'd like to have URI action support in Affinity Designer on iOS. This support would allow me to directly open .AFDESIGN files from whatever file system they're in: iCloud, DropBox... while using the iPad and automatically open iOS Affinity Designer with that file (similar to how files can be directly opened in Mac OS).
  24. Is there any way to set the Move tool "arrow" tool (v) as default instead of the hand tool or view tool (H). Normally you just use space bar to move around using the hand tool, for easy work flow you want to be able to edit right away when opening a file etc. and for that the select tool off course needs to be default (exactly as in Photo shop)
  25. The Picture Frame Tool properties should have a default of None. Or, please allow the user to choose a default, different to the present Scale to Max Fit. Keep up the good work. LesliePrint.
