  1. 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
  2. How can I insert a tab stop as an end character? «\t» does not work.
  3. Hello People Hello teams. I know you are busy with top notch stuff but it seems like you have forgotten to add the Close All into Affinity Publisher. Yet if I have more than one project file open I can't close them all at once but need to close one by one. This is good but can get anoying if I have 15 tab to close. I've noticed there is no Close All implemented into the recent beta of APhoto and ADesigner so... maybe it is time to correct it or to explain the philosophy behind such choice (if it one and if there is a philosophy) Note that projects are often more about compositions with objects copied from many sources and when finished (we often leave tabs open just in case) then comes the time to close the software in a non brutal way (the brutal way often leads to crash or bugs) So please implement that and tweak it more than what it should be. Blessings
  4. Ok, so I'll try to phrase this question as clearly as possible I am experimenting with cutting selection of one photo layer (background) into another that is a new tab in Affinity. With beginners luck I was able to get it how I wanted it to look, the selection that is, in the second photo (in the second tab) with the ability to RESIZE and MOVE. This is what I want, to be able to cut, copy and resize the selection from the first photo to the second one. But now I can't cut and copy a selection in such a fashion that it would be resizable in the second image like before. I think I played around with something in "refine" dropdown when selection brush tool was clicked. Please advise. Getting a bit frustrated trying to cut, copy, and resize the selection. Can only cut and copy it into the photo without ability to move it or make it smaller. Thank you!
  5. Hi I find problem inserting tab sign in Bullets and Numbering. Working on MAC after bullet symbol i can insert tab sign via "option (alt)+ Tab". However on PC via "alt+Tab" we change active window. I can copy and paste Tab symbol in to palette but it is inconvenient. Next problem is that any bullet symbol doesn’t appear in the Bullets and Numbering menu. It is instead blue rectangle. Any suggestion how to solve the problem?
  6. This is a general issue on the three apps from Affinity, maybe not a bug but a "not a feature" but is a nasty issue. When you change a setting in a pane, on most cases, you can't use tab key to go to next field. Yes, it works good on the color mixer, but don't work in almost any other panel. You change a field, and the next tab is interpreted as a regular tab instead of going to the next field. That means than most of the time I end with the studios hidden because tab hide it instead of going to next field. Is the only set of apps I know that doesn't let you navigate fields using tab key and forcing to make a click in each field that you need to modify. I don't know why, because the color mixer works well, so it is clear that is feasible feature. Only other exception is in dialogs, that works because you are on a window and can't go anywhere until you close it.
  7. Windows 10 - Publisher 1.7.0.58 Work-flow to show problem: * Create a new document; * Create a Rectangle (as an example, could be anything); * Double-click the fill colour icon to open the Colour Chooser dialog; * Click in any of the '#' fields; * Enter any value; * Press Tab. The focus shifts back to the 'R' field but only when you input+Tab in one of the '#' fields. If you're in any field other than one of the '#' ones, Tab takes you to the next field as expected after input. Tabbing from a '#' field without making any input puts the focus onto the next expected field so the problem only seems to occur when input is given.
  8. I use separated mode and as someone told me in the Affinity Designer-Forum, this mode is officially considered broken. This needs to be addressed, as it should be an "easy" thing to repair. Yeah I really mean this. First: as I found out in Designer, the transform palette (even in publisher) has the wrong order when "tabbing" through them to key in your values – it should be: x > y > width > height, not x > width > y > height. Second: the CMYK-palette goes completely bananas: I type in my cyan-value, press tab and the magenta-field is highlighted but as I type a number this keypress is recognized by other parts of the program.. then when I tab again i invoke "Toggle-UI" which is set to TAB (as it works in Indesign well enough without these issues...)
  9. Something I cannot find in Publisher is a right Indent Tab (Shortcut in indesign Shift-Tab) Which I use quite often in indesign. Why is this missing, and will you be adding this?
  10. If you have your image in AP zoomed to fit (as I often do when editing the whole image) a handy quick move is to use Tab, so you can see it in further detail. However, Tab leaves it at the same zoom level rather than the desirable 'automatic zoom to fit again'. Yes, you can do a Ctrl-0, but that means finger-twiddling when a quick Tab-Tab is what you want to do. This is particularly useful when you have a smaller screen (I use a Surface). I think PS does this. Thank ye good sires and madams Dave
  11. Hi guys. Maybe this has been mentioned before elsewhere, but I find the Tab shortcut behaviour on the Transform panel to be complete nonsense. The field selection order shouldn't be an absurd from left to right, top to bottom (i.e. X position > Width > Y Position > Height), but instead a more logical from top to bottom, left to right (i.e. X position > Y position > Width > Height). The way it is, it feels a bit broken whenever you feel the need to manually input values. And it should't take you more than changing a line or two of code to fix it, so… maybe you could do that for the next release? Thanks! Edit #1: Even though the “constrain proportions” link-thingy button is, indeed, selectable via tab (and, very logically so if I may add, after all the others), I just noticed that the Rotate and Skew fields aren't. Also, having the “Tab to hide the Studio” shortcut activated instead of cycling from the last field back to the first one doesn't make much sense and isn't very friendly, IMHO. Edit #2: I've just noticed another thing: In fact, the Rotate and Skew fields are indeed selectable via Tab. And you can tab from the Skew field to… the X position field?? This means that even though those two fields are visually on the bottom part of the panel, if we consider the whole “Tab to hide the Studio” thing, they seem to be coded as if they were on top. Which actually makes it a bug/error/oversight on your part, oopsy-daisy. But the best solution would be to not only change the ordering and getting rid of that cycle-breaking behaviour; that way, it wouldn't really make any difference. Edit #3: It gets even weirder still. If you press Shift-Tab instead of Tab, you can infinitely cycle backwards (as it should be, anyway) through the panel fields… So, did you actually hard-code that break when tabbing regularly on purpose?
  12. In this screenshot, which of the two tabs is the current document? This problem is worst when there are exactly two documents open. With three, then there's an odd-one-out that is brighter. But with only two, there's no indication whether bright or dark means 'current'. In fact, I'd say brightening the current document's tab is misleading, since if you continue the tab metaphor, the tab with a background colour closest to the canvas (i.e. darker) creates more of a tab-like affordance. This does actually cause me a problem. After a month of using the application quite regularly, I still find myself clicking the wrong tab.
  13. Hi anyone this may help I had a big issue with Tab Stops doing whatever the heck it wanted in Affinity Designer and not what I wanted!! I love Affinity Designer, but, I noticed a few of you out there were having same issues. So this is hopefully just to help you. After many minutes, possibly hours, I finally worked out the best way to do it. If you know the exact points/increments you require: Format the text, size and font how you want it to look first (not the tab stops). Create a paragraph style for this. Then go into Text Styles, find your new style (in my case, 'TABBED shite'), and add in the increments exactly as you want them here. It works a treat! Hope this can help others until Affinity Publisher comes out Andy
  14. Double click any swatch in the Swatches panel Switch to any of the sliders controls (RGB, CMYK, LAB, happens in all of them) if needed Place cursor on the first field (R for RGB or C for CMYK, etc...) in the flyout window Type a new number, works fine Tab to the second value (G or M, etc...), type new value, works fine Tab to the third value (B or Y, etc..), you can't type anymore I aso noticed the if you tab between like above, but without changing value, by the time you reach the third value the focus switches from the Swatches panel flyout to the application main menu at the top. Thanks!
  15. Feature requests 1. Stop Tab Ruler The current stop tab panel is rather frustrating, and often these things need to be designed rather than calculated. The same sort of thing as in Word, Illustrator, InDesign, Quark Xpress 2. Text box overflow Currently the text in a box flows out of the bottom of a text box. I read the reasoning why, however at concept stage (especially when using dummy text) I find myself having to delete lots and lots of Latin text, only to have to re-paste it in a few moments later once I've changed font size / box size etc. 3. Text box linking It would be really great if there was an option so that you could choose if the text flowed out of the bottom of the text box. Likewise the option of linking / flowing content between text boxes would be super-helpful. I know that these may appear more like options for a DTP package rather than illustration program, however there's often need, especially web concepts. Thanks
  16. I've accidentally closed the Color Tab and now I can't find where to go to open it back. D: (Affinity Photo)
  17. Why can't I make alignment, arrangement, and snapping a window/tab like color and layer? It's super annoying to have to move my cursor to the edge of the screen, press a button, and align/arrange/change snapping setting. Improve the workflow please!
  18. I have got to be doing something terribly wrong with tabs. I cannot figure out how to use them. I have used so many programs over the years and have never had so much trouble. The only way I can see to add a tab is under paragraphs in the tab section. I can click on the little + tab and it creates a tab, but there is no rhyme or reason to the length. If I select the right justify and want it at say 3 inches and I have a three inches text box it breaks to a new line. If I shorten it, it does not go to the right edge. That is if the justification button even work. The the leaders do not show up.
  19. I work on a document an have some tabs already open. If I click on an unsaved, but hidden Tab - Designer asks if I like to save the artwork - but won't show me the tab to close before. This will cost me in summary a few hours. But Affinity has spend some great Tools. You are the reason why I can some step distance from the Cloud-Abo-Product :-) Kepp goin on. Thank you from Cologne, Germany
  20. The option to display 100% full screen when pressing the TAB key. Right now, the menu displays at the top. Photoshop has this as one of its modes when pressing the F key.
  21. Is there a way to have decimal leader spacing between them-(tracking)? I find that the default decimal spacing is way too tight. Maybe a future version? Or custom glyph?
  22. Hi, I have a problem I'm realizing a price list, but I can not align numbers with decimals with the tab. There is a tutorial which explains well the procedure? Thank you
  23. I’m sometimes getting a crash when hitting the tab key to hide/show the studio panels in modular window mode. It hasn’t been consistent but I seem to have noticed that before this happens the window of a file I’m opening is displaced to the top right a bit (i. e. not in the usual top left corner), and it happens when I hit the tab key to show the studio panels again after I’ve hidden them to move the window properly. I have the crash report here, if you want. Don’t know if I should attach it here? (does it contain personal data of some kind that one wouldn’t want on the public internet?)
  24. Hello everyone! I've got some questions about shortcuts in Affinity Photo and Designer: 1.: I read that ctrl + shift + tab is supposed to let me jump to the next file. But for whatever reason, this only works sometimes. Is there a different way to jump to the next / previous file? Could I be doing something wrong? 2.: Is there a way to select the layer above / below the currently selected one? I am working on OSX 11.6 using Designer 1.5.1 and Photo 1.5.1. Thanks for any help! Shu
  25. I need the basic function just drag layer objects across the open tab files. And when hold the shift key and drag it, the layer objects will be paste in same position. Please consider.
