  1. Customizing the studio space is very important, especially for small screens. Illustrator has quite an awesome feature that affinity designer is missing. You can create a second studio with minimized (icons only) panels that pop-open when clicked. This saves a lot of space but makes them much easier accessible compared to only the tabs in affinity (often you even have a scrollable tab bar). The benefit is that you can have your big panels on the very right and expand one additional panel on the inner right studio. This males working soooo much easier. It would be great if you could add this feature.
  2. Hi Affinity team! I worked for years on Adobe CC and I transitionned recently to the Affinity suite (death to Illustrator!). I work on a big screen and I'm used to have several layer of panel clipped on each side of my screen, like in the exemple. I find it really convinient when you want to access a lot of fonctions really fast and, more important, keep those fonctions in the same place at all time. Sadly that feature isn't part of the affitinty apps. You can clip just one row of panels to the sides of the screen, the second row just floats and I tend too drag it by mistake. I would love to have this feature in affinity, it's one of the few problems I have with your apps. Thanks !
  3. Hello I have a problem with studio panels. I use three monitors on Windows 10. Every time I arrange the panels on the second monitor and restart Affinity Designer or Photo, they are unordered. Sometimes the panel is missing and sometimes they all move to the third or first monitor. I can't solve this problem. Is there any way that studio panels will always stay in one place? greetings Michael
  4. I have no idea if this is the best place to post this or not.... I'm trying to replicate a 7-panel brochure I did in Adobe Indesign and having problems with making the transition. The finished, folded size is 4" x 9". So I created my initial document with those dimensions. The inside panels of the brochure must be 4 7/8 (3.875") x 9 to accommodate fold creep. So I create a second master with those dimensions. I want each "panel" of the brochure to be a page, and then want to lay them out side by side to create the brochure inside and outside. Attached is a thumnail of the Indesign page panel showing the page panels (pages) in spreads. Each panel is a page and, when dragged into this configuration, create the spreads to print. Is this even possible in Publisher?
  5. Since the latest update of PHOTO and DESIGNER everytime i launch the programs the panels keep changing size. It worked fine on 1.7. But 1.7.1 is a mess. Tried using control on boot to reset hasn't helps. Suggestions? Please fix this its really annoying. It would be great to save a workspace like ADOBE ( sorry) and then you could have multiple layouts. Gary
  6. Since the last Update of 1.7. all my panels are constantly changing with every boot of the program. Was fine with initial 1.7, but the first update screwed this up. Tried resetting with CONTROL on boot...but no luck. This is extremely annoying . Trying to work and this keeps changing. Anyone have a fix? Gary
  7. Some of the window panels don't show the arrow to resize. For example I can't vertically resize the "Layers" "Navigator" panels. How can I fix this issue?
  8. Dear all, since the update to version 1.7 the panels don´t remain the way I arranged them. Each time you start Affinity Photo or switch between the personas the position and size of the panels changed, though they were docked to each other. My system: Windows, Office 10 Pro (64 bit), two monitors (I apologize for my english - no native speaker)
  9. I'm on Designer 1.6.1 on Mac running High Sierra and can't tab between fields in the Character and Paragraph panels (works fine in Transform). I removed the default shortcut of using the Tab key to Toggle UI but that didn't help. Is this a bug? Please do enable tabbing between fields in all panels in future releases. Thanks. Here is a link to a screen recording showing how tabbing works properly in Transform but not in Character/Paragraph: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1a4Rq4CbxbVtgfsY0vgocRECgVWMjSi04
  10. I recently did some testing of publisher by making a brochure with a lot of text. I noticed some weird behaviour when moving around in my document using my apple magic (touch) mouse: the linespacing changed suddenly and another time the text size increased as if by ghost hands... I researched and found there is a (some might say) *neat* feature to change values of input fields by just hovering above and scrolling the "mouse-wheel" – but this sometimes also happens when my mouse-pointer is somewhere else. Although it may be an interesting idea, I consider it a bad implementation, and in some cases it's also buggy. Sometimes it interferes with scrolling inside a panel (like a webpage containing an annoying iframe...). Increasing line-spacing of text that has already gotten a paragraph-style just by accidentally scrolling over the input field is not good. Maybe this is a good feature in AfDesigner, where you do much less text and have to experiment with it, e.g. logo-design, but not for type-setting large amounts of text in explicit defined typography.
  11. Hi! As many of us, I'm used to the UI of adobe – although we may not like every behaviour – much of it has proven to be at least consistent and practical. I encourage the affinity-team to experiment and try new ideas for a workflow optimised UI that's fun and easy to use – it does not have to stay the way adobe settled. But what I'm essentially missing is a way to keep all the _different_ panels arrangements I need per usage - so called "Workspaces" in adobes parlance: Maybe that is what the "Personas" are for, which is an interesting approach, but I use workspaces to quickly fill my screenS(!) with all the relevant panels and to close the not relevant ones for the job I'm doing right now. It's not always just "Exporting" and "Drawing" like the personas allow me to use – sometimes I need e.g "Screendesign", "Typesetting"or "27 + 21,5inch Monitor maximized" "13inch Laptop minimal" (I'm speaking of the separated mode, of course) Second use-case is to be able to move my Workspaces to a different computer or a new system-installation. I already have to arrange the panels on the 3 Affinity-Apps times 2 (beta) on three machines (3*2*3=18) which is not fun to keep just roughly synchronised... Is there a way to manually get the .plist-file and put it on the new machine, I'm not sure where the panel-positions are stored.
  12. Right now panels can snap into place horizontally but if I have a large screen it would be nice if I could put several panels side by side and then they would move when I resize the window.
  13. I use a Wacom Intuos S, and many times when I go to select a tab on the right things get really crazy. For some reason, taps get registered as drags and the panels get rearranged in all sorts of crazy ways. I have to go and select "Reset Studio" every time. Maybe the solution lies in reducing the drag sensitivity for the panels while using a graphics tablet? Edit: Not the tabs themselves, but actually the drag handle for the panels. My mistake. I added an image for clarification.
  14. Is there any way to increase the size of the panels? I undock them and show them on my second monitor, but the icons and text are both so small that I cannot read them without magnification.
  15. I am really liking publisher so far, and can imagine working with it professionally in the future. I am using indesign cs5.5 at the moment and one thing I would like to see in publisher which is in this program is collapsible panels. I like to have some panels open all the time, like character, paragraph, pages and color. This already fills my workspace pretty much, but I would like other options quickly available too, but not take up space all the time, f.i. the text frame option, the text styles and stroke options. Having some way to group a couple and minimize them would be very helpful.
  16. Hello Team Affinity, I am facing this weird issue running both Affinity Designer & Photo with dual monitor setup. I usually keep my Application window on my primary display and arrange the necessary tools panel in my secondary display. Everything works perfectly fine but, after every week or 10 days the display gets swapped actually. I mean the Application window moves to the secondary monitor and the tools panels moves to my primary with the exact panel arrangement. Here are the screenshots of the issue. Below image describes the layout I usually set, After a week or so, when I launch Designer or Photo, the results look like the below screenshot. I have a Nvidia GTX 750TI 2GB Graphics card with latest drivers installed. And I did not perform any driver update in between. If you need any further information to fix my issue, please do let me know. Thank you Vishnu Raghav B
  17. Hey, please make the Resource Manager available to the Studio palettes for better integration in the UI. I need it right by my side all the time like the Layers and Pages panels. Please also add more options to pieces of information like Color Space, Transparency, Rotation, Dimensions, File Path etc already in the list. Cheers Benny
  18. I like the power of macros in Photo but in my workflow I use a lot of macros and there is no way to create or organize the most used macros, tools and menu items in a panel. I would love to see something like this implemented in the next version. A great example of something like this made for photoshop you can find here.
  19. The ability to dock panels, toolbars, and the main window toolbar, in Separated Mode just like in the Mac version of Adobe products, Macromedia FreeHand, or older versions of Microsoft Office, would allow for much neater workspace organization. It would also make everything cleaner when placing panels on secondary monitors in Non-Separated Mode. A setting to have these screen-edge docks collapsed and only open up when moving the mouse to the screen edge (just like the OS X Dock with "Hide Dock" activated or the menu/toolbar sliding in on regular OS X applications like Safari in full screen mode) would further improve usability on small screens such as smaller laptops. The ability to arrange documents next to each other in all modes would be very useful. The nicest implementation of this is probably in Microsoft Visual Studio, where it is very easy to arrange documents in a variety of different ways just by dragging the tabs. Adobe products can sort-of do this, but not when using floating windows because it cannot dock two views in one window, it only works when activating their Application Frame. Currently, Affinity Photo has a very useful option "View > New View" that opens up a new document tab for the same document, but this is utterly useless in non-separated mode since there is no way to actually put the two views next to each other to work on detail while looking at the whole document. In separated mode, it would be useful to be able to split the tool options from the main window toolbar so one doesn't have to drag the bulky main window toolbar around with it In separated mode, currently the status bar completely disappears, and in non-separated mode on the other hand, there seems to be no way to hide it The Character/Paragraph buttons in the text tool options bar only show these panels, but they don't open them if they are collapsed. Chances are that a user wants to actually use them, so un-collapsing them would make sense. It might also be confusing if these are already on the screen in collapsed state since it will then appear to the user as if nothing happens when they press the button.
  20. The panel contents are clipped and don't extend all the way down. Resizing the panel only increases the gap between panel content and panel edge. Edit: And you get a light show of selections when you hold the left mouse button down up/down arrows next to the value fields.
  21. Not sure if this has been requested yet, but.. I would like to see the Resource Manager available as a panel similar to the Links panel in InDesign, as well as being able to assign hotkeys to Resource Manager buttons like Replace (Relink) and Locate.
  22. Ok Serif / Affinity guys... This is driving me crazy! Previously I have submitted this suggestion, though I don't believe I was heard. IMO Affinity products desperately need the ability to auto-hide panels. See [https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/31218-multi-uiux-suggestion-auto-hide-panels/] I am using a very large notebook computer with a 17" screen. Large screen for a notebook, though smaller screen size for graphic design work. With this monitor using the panel controls in Affinity products is frustrating. There simply isn't enough room! I group panels needing more vertical space (layers, effects, history, brushes, etc.) together. Panels needing less vertical space are also grouped. Regardless how it is organized I do not have enough vertical space to effectively use the panels. Some of the panels require large vertical space, some medium, some smaller. With 3 stacked sets of panels the larger panels are way too cramped. Even if I group the medium and smaller panels together (which puts way too many panels in the smaller panel group), there still isn't enough vertical space for the larger panels. With smaller monitors, having panels on both sides of the screen (without auto-hide) is obviously impractical. Working with cramped panels is extremely clumsy and frustrating. Affinity UI panel design is not elegant for smaller monitors!!! If I could auto-hide panels (as was implemented in Serif *Plus applications), I could put panels on both sides of my monitor and have all the panels I find useful easily accessible. Current implementation forces users with 'smaller' monitors to make significant concessions in their use of panels. Regardless of screen size, the ability to auto-hide panel groups would be useful for all/most users, as this would allow users to better organize their application interface, and enable users to have more panels immediately accessible. This would make the use of panels in Affinity applications significantly more elegant. PLEASE consider implementing an auto-hide feature in panel groups in Affinity applications.
  23. Hi I am trying to use the adjustments in affinity photo for Windows 1.6 desktop. When I click on the adjustments I seem to get 3 options rather than the panel with the adjustments. For example when I click HSL adjustment I get default, desaturate and invert hue, but not the panel with the sliders. It is the same with Levels-instead of the sliders for levels I get default, darken or lighten. I can't see where to alter this setting. Any help much appreciated. Thanks in advance
  24. Just recently started doing some painting again in Designer and with the dizzying amount of brushes available now, it's almost a hinderance to workflow, bouncing all around the brush panels/paint and pixel tools... while working. Would LOVE to see some sort of ability to create custom, saveable panels to streamline the process whether it be painting, retouching, path/pen workflows etc... with the ability of creating a "painting" panel with brushes, swatches, tools etc... specifically tailored to the task at hand. Something like Cinema 4d where you enter a UI edit mode and can drag and drop tool icons and menu commands onto a blank floating panel that can be saved and named. Any comments from the team on the possibility or even concerns of attempting this type of thing would be greatly appreciated?
  25. Is it possible to dock studio panels in 2 columns on one side? I found the options to have studio panels on the left and right at the same time but I would prefer to have panels in two (or even three) columns on one side. I am currently doing lettering of the comic saga Nanits Chronicles in Affinity Designer and my "standard" working layout is to have script and references on the left side (25% of the 21:9 34' screen) and Designer on the right (75%). The artwork should be in the centre, so I have one long Layer panel + other panels on the right (see attached screenshot). The Layer panel is not docked, is actually floating over the workspace. Is there any chance to dock the two panel columns next to each other?
