  1. Hi, I may resize an artboard at some point in the design process. When an artboard contains guides, resizing it changes the guides' location even when they are locked. So they seem to be linked to the board. Now that I know this I will work differently but would it be possible to imagine a type of guides that when they are locked would not change their position even when changing the dimensions of the board? P.
  2. the left/right/top/bottom guides in artboard document mode doesn't respond, it keeps referring back to 0. in the single board mode works perfectly.
  3. Hi folks, I believe this wasn't happenning in previous version so I have to ask - why are guidelines moving when I'm crop-rotating an image? Please, see the attached screencast depicting the issue. Is it a bug or a feature again? In the later case, please explain why and how should I continue working when I need to "lock" the guides to their position. Thanks for your response.
  4. Hello, ...yes, i’m just another guy asking for features… But i’m just trying to help to make AD better. Please consider to implement asap this tools in Designer because: - Knife tool: It’s not possible to cut groups in a fast way. (yes we can perform compound operations but only on one object at a time...) - Links: It’s a must for all the designers since most of the time we work with images in low resolution (to be fast and light) and for the final work we replace the pictures in the link folder for Hi resolution ones. - Roughen effect on a VECTORIAL line (Smith, hard, regular, irregular). this is soo needed!!! (Also, if possible, (like in old FreeHand: Fisheye, fractalize…) - Blend tool……. (Waited and promissed for so long) - 3D perspective. (Yes we have now the isometric grid, but as it says, it’s isometric, doesn’t have perspective). And related: - VECTORIAL “envelop” distortions. (at least, if we already had this tool, we could import a 3D grid (from a 3D software, blender for example) and adjust the perspective... - Option to remove one guide directly hitting the delete key because: We designers like to use big artboards and lots of sketches inside the artboard. It’s not practical to zoom out every time we want to remove a guide!… And, if not asking too much, the possibility to create a guide after a vectorial object (Like FreeHand used to do). And, the possibility to lean the guides (like in corel). Thanks! Please, let's make this software a really alternative to illustrator! Because at the moment it’s not. I still need illustrator to perform this tasks above. Thank you for your time, Best regards, Jorge
  5. Been trying to delete guides since yesterday in the Affinity Designer for Ipad. It can’t after going through the steps of opening guides, select guides and click delete but I can’t select to delete. IMG_0757.MOV
  6. On the Export Persona of Affinity Designer, I am able to create column guides via the Guide Manager but snapping to them doesn't work. I made sure that snapping to guides is turned on the main toolbar. Snapping to ruler guides does work, yay! I would also like to be able to reposition placed ruler guides by dragging directly over them aside from editing their values on the Guides Manager while on the Export Persona.
  7. Affinity Designer already has a grid and axis manager, to select diferente types of grids, like isometric, dimetric, …. Also it also has the isometric panel, that change planes to edit or fit objects in a given plane. A new option of grid could be developed to do perspective drawings, like on paper with One Point Perspective or Two Point Perspective, that uses vanishing points to create the illusion of depth in an drawing. And probably using a similar organization of isometric drawings. This use of the geometry in the grid and panel, would be very useful for to make this type of drawings. Now, we need to create lines to achieve this, and it is not practical or productive. Does anyone also finds this useful? Cheers
  8. When I try to use a guide it shows red and dotted but when I put the pencil on it to move it, the guide turns blue and will not move. Initially I could use horizontal but not vertical guides but now it's happening with the horizontal one too. Any ideas how to fix this? I saw and older thread which suggested this was a known bug and was being fixed as a matter of urgency. TIA
  9. Trying to drag out guides to snap to a curve's nodes but AD won't snap.
  10. Using iPad Pro + Apple Pencil 2019 Once I have my guides set, I cannot drag them or move them at all. It appears as if they are locked - any help greatly appreciated!
  11. Just purchased Affinty photo and I am very disappointed by the way guides and snapping are implemented. In short snapping just doesn't work, you just can't tell whether snapping is on or off , its not positive enough when snapping to either guides or the grid , I have tried this on 2 separate machines and get the same result. Secondly show/hide guides is also not working , the guides just stay on screen , again this happens on 2 separate machines. You really need to check out how this REALLY BASIC FUNCTIONALITY works in Photoshop and other graphics programmes too because this is the worst I have ever seen. Please fix this asap.
  12. Hi everyone, I really love Affinity Designer and want to stick with it and will! It works really well but it has some really important (to me) features missing. I have used CorelDRAW for a very long time but it is definitely bloated and slow at this point. I guess it is still based on some sort of old technology. Anyway, something I really like in Corel draw is the ability to have angled guides. You drag a guide onto the pasteboard just the same as Affinity and then as you can see at the top left of the screen grab I'm attaching, you get the option to change the angle. In fact, guides are added to a new layer which is, by default, set not print. This means you can lock the guides layer, move it up and down in the stack of layers et cetera. This is so useful in so many situations. Is this something Serif might consider adding to designer? Thanks. What do others think?
  13. I couldn't find a good or efficient way of creating a Central Perspective or a 2 Point Perspective Design, in Affinity Designer. I think the implementation of a new Grid Type would be the best solution (I included 2 pictures to give an example of what the grids would look like).
  14. Please add buttons for these when nothing is selected. In terms of workflow, they seem closely related to Document Setup. Like so:
  15. Setting up guides in a document is not a fun task. There is no shortcut button or icon on any of the tool bars so you have to resort to the menu all the time, when guides are something we are always using. It would be great to have such a shortcut. Also, the guide manager, though rather easy to use, is not exactly pleasant. It creates a “default” guide at the center of the page. Granted, you can move it, but when you have several guides, seeing new numbers there just makes it confusing. It would be much better if the location or value window were empty to begin with. Also regarding the guide manager, once you double click on a value to change it, it is impossible to read what you are typing, because the background turns light and the font remain white. Finally, it would be great if guides could be treated as objects, a la Adobe Illustrator, so they can be copied, moved, etc. with a keyboard shortcut or while viewing its location somewhere, instead of having to enter the Guide Manager again. Thanks!
  16. Good afternoon from here in NW New York, I am putting centering guidelines on a master for an 8.5x11" page divided into four 4.25x5.5" quarters. They seem to be fine on the master but when I apply them to the pages, they appear in different places than on the master, and sometimes they're missing altogether. What might I be doing wrong here? I'm careful to apply the right master :-) James
  17. Is it going to be possible anytime soon to change the appearance of the guidelines? They can be very difficult to see at times and I can see no way to make them a little thicker or change their colour.
  18. The one thing that stops Affinity Designer from being the perfect tool for UI design for me is the lack of an ability to set up a guide layout. There is almost this functionality in the grid set up options, just without the ability to make grid tiles the full height of the artboard and add a default margin on the left/right/top/bottom independent of the gutter. The ability to save a guide layout preset in the Guide Manager and load it up in future documents has been mentioned previously, and this is potentially another great way to solve the problem, so +1 to that idea too. My issue is just that when setting up a new document I need to be able to quickly set up the bootstrap grid as guides before I start. My current workaround is to set up the guides in a document and use that as a template for any web UI work I need to do. Please consider adding a Guide Layout feature and/or Custom Guide Presets (honestly the Guides Manager is currently brilliant, it just needs extending). I'm so very close to being able to replace PS/AI with AF. Cheers
  19. Hi, I created a 24 x 36" (609.6 mm x 914.4 mm) document in Photo and added guides like this: Then I added 6 mm Canvas Size equally. But after clicking the Resize button, this is what I get: You could see that guides on the left and top are not visible! When I do this in Photoshop, all guides stay where they are! What might be the issue causing this in Photo? Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
  20. In this lesson we set up a document inside of Affinity using guides to create bleeds. Then we go on to create a business card. Check it out and go create. https://youtu.be/tDxQaOVVWrg *Please note that this was created in 2015 using version 1.2, there have been a lot of updates since and the upcoming release of 1.7 will solve my work arounds for this tutorial.

  21. Hi everyone, Just need some help, I'm in the works of creating a (roughly) 200-page product catalogue. Is it possible to: 1) Copy & paste guides OR 2) Have guides copy over when adding new Artboards using the Documents preset. Creating new guides over and over for 200 pages is not gonna work very well haha. Cheers
  22. I feel like this is a dumb question, but I made some document guides by dragging over from the rulers, and now I can't seem to figure out how to delete them. :wacko: How do I do this quick and easy?
  23. This is an issue I have run into only now. The Problem When using snapping, the distance between objects is not shown when moving them with the mouse while guides are enabled Nudging does show distances Distances are shown when not moving along guides How to reproduce Enable column guides Add a rectangle and match the width with that of the column guide Make a copy and move vertically below with snapping enabled Distance will not show Move rectangle copy horizontally on the same height as the first rectangle Distance is now shown when moving What I made sure of Snapping and snapping candidates are enabled and work All extra options are set (show gaps and sizes e.g.) To try and find a solution - without success Additional Info I am using Windows 10 64-bit Home Affinity Designer is at version 1.7.2.471 2019-09-03_00-26-26.mp4
  24. The isometric grids continue to displace when zooming, making very difficult to set precise nodes on it as the grid doesn't align with the magnet points. Fails on all perspective grids (ISO, ISO 2:1, dimetric, oblique, trimetric, triangular, etc.)
  25. I would like to suggest a feature to lock individual guides via the Guide Manager. This is a feature in Indesign that we utilize in our group layout process that we would like to see carried forward into Publisher. In a our workgroup of 20 graphic artist, copies writers, and layout team, it important to use to have guides that can not be moved. These guides to hold boundaries that are outside the constraints of our press margins. This ability would be most helpful.
