  1. Hello, during the last couple of days I spent a lot of time with Designer. I watched most of the official tutorials and read the relevant parts of the documentation. So far, I love AD, but the following behavior drives me nuts and renders AD almost unusable for me. I am trying to draw a brushed illustration using a Wacom. I have hundreds of strokes and want to clean them up: sort them into groups assign different stroke widths etc. However the selection process seems to be almost impossible hard. Please consider the following quick screen-capture: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/_DsJZdXqWzY" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe> ( https://youtu.be/_DsJZdXqWzY ) It shows the following problems: Frequently, I'm am accidentally creating copies by dragging with ALT or CMD Pressing CMD-Z once will only undo the offset but not the duplication which leads to two identical copies of the strokes precisely on top of each other (it took me hours to actually notice this behavior and now I'm always using slightly transparent stroke colors) Trying to select a stroke by clicking with CMD+SHIFT is totally random. Sometimes I'm lucky but it feels like most of the time a random neighbor stroke is being selected. (SketchApp always shows the inner bezier-line as hover before clicking which makes it possible to quickly select the right element without trail and error) Trying to select several elements with marquise-selection frequently does more damage than help, because I just create more accidental drag-copies. Drag zooming with SPACE+CMD+Drag is super fast. But if I accidentally press CMD+SPACE+Drag (pressing in the wrong order) -> Yay, I just created another invisible copy and have to Press undo twice. I can't figure out the "Edit all Layers"-toggle. It should lock me into focusing on a single layout (without accidentally switching when CMD+selecting or dragging). But it doesn't seem to make any difference. The Isolate Layer-Mode (ALT+Clicking on a thumbnail) would be super useful, but sadly it is abandoned as soon as you want to select several elements. I have a hard time figuring out the precise working of the layer-player (Group vs. Layer vs. Component). Sometimes it seems to have an impact on the selection (esp if the toggles of "layer-items" are highlighted with a circle). The CTRL+CMD+Click context-selection frequently only lists a single "Curve >" icon, that can't be selected. I guess I must be using it wrong so I'm looking for advice from advanced users. How are you doing this kind of basic selection work? As mentioned above, I frequently work with Sketch, and selecting stuff seems to be million times more efficient and logical there. Thanks for your help. Any tips or pointers are very welcome. Tom EDIT: I finally figured out, that the "Edit All Layers" toggle is to be taken literally: After promoting many of by Groups into proper Layers, this already helps quite a bit. affinity-designer-problems-01-selection.mov
  2. It would be nice if the Layers panel disclosure widgets had the same behavior as Finder's List view, expanding and collapsing all child containers when Option-clicked.
  3. Hi, I mocked up a few ideas that I think would improve the functionality of the Photo merge tools by making it easier to switch between them and add images directly. Say you drag a few images into one of Photo's merging tools, only to realize you opened the wrong one. The commands are grouped in the menu, two have keyboard shortcuts right next to one another, and the tools have similar layouts, making this a fairly easy mistake to make. Rather than having to hit Cancel, open the intended merge tool, then relocate the images you want to merge, what if you could just switch to it, with the images you added still in place? The functionality of the Batch tool seems different enough to warrant it remaining separate. To keep the various merging options visible to the user, it might be best to keep their individual items in the File menu. Each would just open the unified interface to the appropriate tool. It would be great to be able to drag-and-drop directly to the Images pane rather than having to open the file picker, then drop to it, then click OK. The visual styling of the window widgets is a bit confusing; the brighter widgets are disabled. This is contrary to most GUI conventions, including how the OK button is disabled in the tools themselves. If the Panorama tool isn’t resizable because the panorama previews would have to be re-rendered (a processor-intensive task), just fix the width of the preview pane while allowing the Images pane to expand. There is some ambiguity in the Panorama tool when you have stitched multiple panoramas together. If you don't explicitly select all of them in the preview pane before you hit OK, only the last selected one will build. A different button label or counter tallying how many panoramas will be rendered (Render 2 Panoramas) might be sufficient. NTH: a way to tell which images constitute which panorama after the panorama preview is generated. This could look something like the mockup below. Ideally, the number displays next to the panorama preview would handle discontiguous stitches nicely, so if you used three of 4 images out of sequence, something like “1 – 2, 4” would appear next to the thumbnail.

  4. Hi everybody, without doing any obvious changes to my system or settings the following has been happening for a couple of days: Whenever I try to open a file from the Mac OS Fotos Mediathek in Affinity Photo using the "Edit in Affinity Photo"-function of the Mac OS Fotos-App, the following message pops up in Affinity Photo: Failed to open file /Users/XXX/Library/Group Containers/6LVTQB9699.com.seriflabs.extensions/intermediates/Apple Photos Document.afextensiondocument The file type is not supported. Opening files in Affinity using "File > open > Media > pictures" works properly, but I want to be able to send my pictures directly from the Fotos-App to Affinity, edit and directly send them back to the Fotos-Mediathek. The problem started on the Macbook a couple of days ago, while Affinity Photo worked fine on the iMac. Today the Mac is affected too. The repair function of the Mediathek was run successfully, but did't show any effect. I'm using the German version. Thanks for any help.
  5. Hi I think I already wrote something similar but I think it is pretty important for us and you hehehe. I seriously think that Affinity Designer with an interactions/prototyping persona could be a huge step and asset for you guys and us as users. Considering the popularity of Sketch and additionnaly Invision or Flinto and also the new tool of Adobe Experience Design. If you add this kind of persona you will certainly gain a good spot in the market. But at the end it is simply my opinion. https://www.flinto.com/ https://www.invisionapp.com/ http://www.adobe.com/ca_fr/products/experience-design.html Thank You and again keep up the good work
