This should be addressed to the Affinity Range. Dashed lines should not scale by length when adjusting the width, only the width should increase, as it stands, if you increase the width of a dashed line from say .5mm to 1mm the dashes increase in length knocking any phase adjusts you have made "out of whack" effectively destroying the phase setting. What should happen is the width of the dash should increase and the length of the dash should not, this means any phase adjustments you have applied will be retained. This leads me on to Alignment, there should be an alignment option to create a symmetrical dash, the corners would have a symmetrical L shaped dash and single lines would have a half dash at each end. See bottom image for an example. Affinity @ .5mm 12-6-0-0 Affinity @ 1mm 12-6-0-0 Dashes scale by length and go out of alignment. Adobe Illustrator @ .5mm 12-6-0-0 Adobe Illustrator @ 1mm 12-6-0-0 (No length scaling dash stays put) Adobe Illustrator with Alignment applied, makes a neat dashed line.
Hello Dear Dev, i have one question that can also be taken as a suggestion for the entire Affinity product line (Designer, Photo and Publisher), have you ever though about implementing a scratch/swap/cache disk/technology ? i mean, evolved softwares uses that functionality to help their product not kill the weakest port of the system which is the RAM. Well affinity products runs well but ... by making it possible for us to setup a scratch or swap space that is directly on our Hard Drives will help us doing better and working with less stress. To give an exemple just check how linux works with swap space. There are lots of people who uses Affinity line because they can't afford the rock start products which requires to upgrade the hardware again and again. Making it possible for users to setup that space directly on their physical drives will change lives as one will personally estimate how big the scratch/swap/cache space will be and work no stress (for those who may go up to 30 or 40GB swap/scratch space. That space must be cleanable in many ways: 1- From the software itself (in its launched state) a line in the File menu saying : Clear scratch/swap/cache content. 2- From the Preference center just add it to Miscellaneous section : reset or clear cache/scratch/swap content. 3- Must be clearable when doing the full software reset combo. 4- Must be cleanable with usual cleaning tools. Trust me guys, implementing this will make things even better and i believe there are geeks here who can help making this even clear for us. Blessings !
