  1. When using AD in Separated Mode, I can't get a previously saved document's window--that I've sized and positioned on the screen in the exact position I want it located relative to the Studio panels--to reopen in either the same position relative to the panels it was previously or at the same size that it was. Only the panels reappear in their former position (as I'm guessing their location information is attached to the application rather than a particular document). The first image below is what I want the screen setup to look like; the second shows what happens after quitting and reopening the document: How can I maintain the document window's identical position and size in the Separated view each time I reopen it?
  2. 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.
  3. I am using AP latest app store version 1.6.7… when multiple files are opened I noticed that one cannot access other opened documents through the "Window" menu as it only lists the single current tab in focus, but when going into separated mode, it functions normal as expect, going to the "Window" menu lists all the opened document to access. Yes when using tabbed mode interface, once can simply click the tab itself to access the opened file, however some of us prefer the listed option through the "Window" menu to navigate and it can be unnecessarily cumbersome to switch over to separated mode everytime to use the "Window" menu if the user prefers to never use separated mode to begin with. Also some of us prefer to stick to dark color interface, but often using the "Window" menu to select a document is easier to read as Mac OSX default menu colors are much lighter with larger text making it easier to identify at a glance. Please consider, adding a way to list all opened documents through the "Window" menu when not only in isolated mode, tabbed mode would be great too.
  4. Had an issue with 128 in 'separated mode' – where each document is in it's own window. Closing one of the three open documents caused Publisher to close down all the other open documents and itself (crash). Have just downloaded 133. Appears the problem remains. Opened three windows/documents, resized one, changed a text box in the second then went to close that second document. Was prompted to save the change first. Did that. Change was saved. Then went to close the document. It closed then Publisher crashed. Not sure if it was the second attempt to close or just a delayed reaction to the earlier/ongoing document close instruction. Also when in 'separated mode' – one document per window – dragging one Publisher document window on top of another also causes Publisher to crash. In recovery mode documents can open with random squares of black showing on the screen. Scrolling or zooming to refresh the screen removes the black squares. Screen grab below.
  5. I love Publisher so far - it only crashed on the very first time I opened it, after 2 seconds (hitting command-F) But the UI needs more love: In Separated Mode, when exporting documents, the toolbar hides the export-sheet -> which should be a free floating dialog box instead of a modal sheet. And it goes up in the popup-charts if you select MORE and then save presets... see screenshots. Thats a mess!
  6. When I open more than one document in Affinity Designer 1.3.2: And when WINDOW --> SEPARATED MODE is unchecked, only the current document is available. The other open documents do not appear in the WINDOW pull-down menu. But when SEPARATED MODE is checked, the other open documents do show up properly in the list. Image 1 shows SEPARATED MODE unchecked, and the one document in the list. Image 2 shows SEPARATED MODE checked, and tow documents in the list. Thanks.

    UI and separated Mode

    Hello, in separated mode Affinity Photo and Designer don't take in consideration the "save dialogue window" that comes from top below every palette you have active in that moment. The result is that when anyone is trying to save files, you have to move and relocate the floating palettes and the main toolbar (see the attachment). Would be desirable to have another interaction with the save window, maybe hiding temporarily the palettes (now I do by myself pressing TAB) or pushing on the foreground the dialog window. Other feedback, that could be considered, is to allow more workspaces and the possibility to save them. There are many reasons, useless to explain, in which you need to save two or three workspaces with the disposition of palettes and toolbar you need.
  8. Can anyone please tell me how I get the toolbar to show in separated mode in Affinity Photo? I run: macOS Sierra 10.12.5; macbook Pro13,3, intel i7, 2.9GHz, 16GB. Two Cinema 30" displays (2560x1600 each), laptop's lid closed so its own screen is not used. I have re-installed Affinity Photo etc. but in separated mode the toolbar disappears! It drives me crazy to have to work in a single window. Separated mode works well in Designer. I suspect it may have to do with the screen coordinates at which the toolbar is drawn, i.e. it is probably off-screen somewhere, though it does not appear on the laptop's screen either if I open the lid or if I start Photo with the lid open. Help!

    Issue with separated mode...

    Hi! I prefer using Affinity Designer in separated mode but for some reason, the app doesn't always remember the setup I have. It's not happening every time but enough to make it a nuisance, for example, this morning, my setup was in a completely different state to the one I left it in yesterday when I closed the app down. Is there a way to stop this from happening?
  10. Hello, I have a problem with the separated mode on Affinity Photo. I use it on a Macbook Pro and most of the time I use an external monitor. I think what I'm experiencing might be the result of switching between monitors, as I've noticed Affinity Photo and Designer don't always like it when I have an external display connected. My problem is that I've somehow lost my top toolbars (normal and context) completely on separated mode. They are definitely on, and visible on normal mode, but on separated mode they move somewhere out of the screen. They aren't visible on any of my desktops. I can get them to the dock if I click minimize from the Window menu, but when I click them open they move out of my screen edges again. Is there a way to restore all the toolbars to their normal position on the separated more? Or some method to gather them to one desktop? This is pretty frustrating and I haven't found any way make separated mode usable again.
  11. I have only recently noticed this since I rarely use Separated Mode and have only added a second monitor to my work environment in the past few days. When opening a raw file, in the Develop Persona and in Separated Mode, the Basic Panel positions itself in the middle of the screen and runs from the top to bottom of the screen. I cannot reach the top of the panel to close it, nor can I move it. I am able to extend either side edge, but that’s all. This behavior is repeatable on my machine on both the MAS and Beta versions (1.4.1 and 1.4.2 beta 4) of Affinity Photo. I have tried: * restarting Affinity Photo * starting up Affinity from launch while holding control key * restarting the computer (MacBook Pro) * reinstalling Affinity Photo I should note that this happens whether or not I am using one monitor or two. Any ideas? TIA
  12. Hi there, I have a issue, I can't active the symbols and the Constraints tabs when I am on Separated Mode.
  13. I'm used to working in 'separated mode' (non-separated mode reminds me of Windoz) and quite often I'm working between 2 documents, which non-separated mode doesn't make easy. When I open/create a new document, the window usually ends up being behind the top toolbar, and I have to move things around so that I can see the document title bar. Most other applications that I use will not place the document title bar behind a tool window. Bill
  14. Hello, I had two documents open in Affinity (Designer and Photo both exhibited this issue) in Separated Mode and each document was on a separate space in Mission Control. There seems to be a bug with this where dragging one of the documents around will cause the Mission Control space to change and Affinity will try to place document window being dragged into a tab in the window of the other document that was on another space. It happens right about when the relative positions up the title bars match up even though the windows are on separate spaces. I've attached a quick screen recording to demonstrate the issue! Thanks, - Tony (I'm currently running OSX 10.11 and the 1.3.5 releases of Affinity Designer/Photo) Affinity Spaces Bug Demo.mov
  15. Currently the only way to change the appearance and size of the tools tool bar is to change the number of columns which restricts you on size of the overall tool bar. As many will set up their own individual workspace, especially when working in Separated Mode, the freedom to be able to grab and manually adjust the size of the tool bar would be useful, with the icons on the toolbar dynamically changing position to fit the tool bar. If the tool bar was too small for all the icons, then a fly out can appear containing the rest. As this would be done through user choice, I don't see it going against the surface level UI ethos of the program as it wouldn't be a default setting.
