  1. Issue/situation: In Publisher I've created a bullet list, but I am not sure how to keep a multi-line bullet-point indent so it aligns with the other entries. Question: Which settings do I need to change to make a multiline entry align with the other entries? Screenshots: See attached screenshot of the issue and my bullet point settings. Operating system: OSX Catalina 10.15.6 Affinity Photo: Version 1.8.4 Unusual hardware: Wacom tablet Intuos pro Any help or input on this matter is much appreciated. Thank you in advance. PS: if this post is in the wrong forum, then please let me know, and I will submit it in another.
  2. I have been doing some testing in stacking pictures I took of the Orion nebula. The pictures are good and the stars are pinpoints. The problem is that I tried all alignment parameters and the result is never aligned. I had high hopes for this function but it doesn't seem to be very good. Stacking is one of the main reasons I bought Affinity Photo, the other being to replace Photoshop Elements. I could always use Deep Sky Stacker but I had great hopes for affinity. I could always try to align manually but that's a lot of work. Anyone has ideas?
  3. Hi all, I'm struggling to get to grips with the alignment options in Affinity Designer for text elements. The space vertically option spaces them out based on the pixel bounds, not the baselines. This results in text that is unevenly spaced if some have descending/ascending characters. I have attached a (very rough) image that shows the behaviour from Illustrator (yep, sorry about that) and the same setup in Designer. The left text is pre-alignment, the right is post. As you can see, Illustrator spaces out the baselines (as you would want for text), and Designer works off the pixel bounds giving an unnatural spacing. I've tried playing around with the text baseline settings, and all of the options on the alignment menu but it has me stumped. I'm very new to Designer so I'm probably missing something obvious, hopefully someone can point out what it is! Thanks, Barry
  4. I see that all Alignment options are greyed out in version 1.8.1. In this case i'm trying to align the text to the margin.
  5. Hi, I just purchased your complete Affinity series and am really happy with it so far. Although I just started working with it yesterday But I already encountered some small problems I can't solve myself. My most important question so far is about the alignment function. As a previous Adobe user I am used to be able to align two objects while one is staying in place. Using Affinity Designer I can't find a way to do that. Whenever I want to align two or more objects they all move and meet up in "the middle". With Adobe I was able to select multiple objects, then release the [Shift]-Key and klick on one of the selected objects. That object would then stay in it's place while all the other selected objects would align with it after clicking one of the [align]-buttons. Is there a way to do the same thing in Affinity Designer? Thank you very much in advance. Cheers, Michael
  6. Please tell me why the alignment choice is not available for me. I need to align on the last object, but now it is not available. Before the update, this worked. Thanks!
  7. Hi all, I am using the whole suit of Affinity desktop currently, I would know how to center my layer between two curve. I know I can align them with the alignment tool but it seems the alignment tool take account of the whole box to makes its calculus. How can I ensure only the curve line drawed is take into account to calculate the alignment to operate? You will find more informations in the joined picture. thanks.
  8. Each Affinity software has alignment option which is great. But it'd be much better if we can have a separate panel for it which we can dock anywhere as we wish. Currently we've to click on the alignment icon each and every time when we need it, and that's kind of boring. What do you think friends?
  9. Dear support, I have installed AfD 1.8.3 and found out that if I select two or more object and go to the alignment icon, the Align to option is grey and not accessible. I need to click to a align icon at first and then Align to is accessible. I have Win 10 and I don't know if it is some kind of a new feature but it's annoying. The picture after click to alignment icon is attached. Thank you in advance for your reply. Kind regards, Roman
  10. I've been taking a for-the-beginner online class in Affinity Publisher and have been following the presenter's suggestions about holding down Shift as I drag an object within a document, until the object reaches the center of the document. Then a colored guideline appears temporarily and I can snap the object to it. This works well if I'm moving objects vertically but not so well if I'm moving them horizontally. It's very easy—far too easy—for them to jump suddenly upward or downward during the horizontal moves. So when I ran across the Align Center and Align Middle controls in objects' context menus, I decided to start using those controls instead for precision. I have the feeling that if anything using the Wacom pen would be even less precise for this purpose than using a mouse. • Is there a command that permits you to center an object both horizontally and vertically in a single stroke, as it were? As I go through the class exercises I'm finding I need to do it often enough that a single command, handling both positioning commands at once, would be super-convenient. • Is there a way rapidly to center an object within another object without having to use the mouse? I've tried using the keyboard to "nudge" objects, but I find that when I do this, there's no visual feedback that I can see—no temporary guidelines that appear to mark centers or edges of objects (nor guidelines that appear to indicate the vertical or horizontal centers of the document itself).
  11. Hello, I am creating this presentation but the text doesn't not get center aligned in the text box. I have attached the file and the video. Am I doing something wrong ? Thank you, Affinity-Publisher-Center-Align.mp4 text-center.afpub
  12. I observed strange behavior when it comes to align objects to other objects that are clipped or masked. I prepared three cases, please watch my little demo video. - Case 1: When I try to align the blue rectangle to the masked group, the object aligns to the most left edge of all the items in the group. I would have expected the object to align to the most left visible edge, but I guess the thought process here is that the objects in the group didn't really change their size. By selecting the mask, I can easily change the visible area. - Case 2: The blue box aligns to the visible edge of the clipping rectangle, makes kind of sense, since clipping to my understanding means that nothing can be "outside" of the "carrier object". However I now can't easily resize the visible part without stretching everything else. - Case 3: This is probably the most weird one....If I mask the objects, just like I did in case 1, but this time I mask the objects themselves, not the group, the alignment is just like in case 2 (blue box aligns to the most left visible point). In my mind this is inconsistent: In case 1, the mask of the group was ignored when it came to alignment, however here, the mask matters for the alignment. Can anybody clear me up on this? Is this all intended behavior and I just don't get it right? 2020_02.12-00_31.mp4
  13. Hello, I am wokring on my UX project and I created these diagrams. however, I cannot center elements in the irregular shapes. The bounding box does not allow centering elements. Please watch the video. Is it a bug or how can I center elements to irregular shapes ? Thank you alignment.mp4
  14. Hey, everyone. Just started the process of switching over to Affinity Designer after 10+ years in Adobe, and had a question. I've looked through the forums and read the Affinity Help sections on alignment, but couldn't find an answer one way or the other. Basically, is there a way to have my selected options in the Alignment Panel apply to the row of Alignment buttons? If I use the Alignment Panel, then it works like I'm expecting: select the circle first, and the square moves into alignment. But when I select the circle first, and click the same alignment button without first going into the alignment panel, then the circle moves to align to the object furthest to the left (see attached video for a demonstration). Is there any way to make the setting I've chosen in the Alignment Panel ('align to first selected') apply to the rest of the alignment buttons, or does that chosen setting only work from within the panel? Cheers. AffinityDesigner_AlignmentRecording.mp4
  15. I discovered this while trying to align individual nodes on multiple paths today. The simplest case to reproduce is as follows: Draw 3 overlapping paths with three 'sharp' nodes each: Start, (approx) middle and end. Using the Node tool, select the middle nodes of each path Choose Align Horizontally: Center and Align Vertically: Center Observe the center points. Depending on the starting positions of the nodes, they may now be curved instead of sharp, and oddly curved when viewed up close. In this case, I would expect the nodes to stay the same type (sharp to stay sharp, curved to stay curved). The strange curved behaviour seen in panel 3 attached seems especially wrong though, and currently means I can't use the align tool for this job. Let me know if I can provide any more info. Thanks!
  16. Hey there! I use the tools in the Transform window and the tools in the Alignment window all the time, but I really dislike pressing the button that opens the Transform window in the hopes of it opening the right one upfront. This would be solved completely by having a seperate button for the alignment tools! Perhaps there is already a way to customize the buttons in the toolbar that I just haven't found yet? Adriaan
  17. Dear developers, I have a problem with hyphenation: if I set Column end zone to big value, then I get a hole on end of column, but text set to Justify Left alignment. Need correct this hole, because I cannot align to right frame.
  18. The move from beta to open has been very smooth for me... aside from this one issue. Before, when I set text in a cell of a table to be Vertically Aligned Center, it was actually in the center of the cell. Now, it acts like there's 'space after' that it needs to account for. I've checked all my settings and I cannot figure out why it's doing this. I've included examples of the same cell text being aligned top, middle, and bottom. As you can see, the middle is not actually centered, but the top and bottom alignments are fine. I've even checked the text formatting of this cell and I don't see why it should be doing this weird thing with Aligned Center. Any idea what's causing this? My current workaround is manually doing this with cell inset measurements... but some of my cells have more than 1 line of text, so the adjustment has to be made row by row. :-(
  19. HI Affinity team I was designing the UX for a product that uses 128 x 64 LCD. I've created several 128 x 64 artboards in 1200 x 1318 environment and found when in export persona, some of the export slices can't be cut exactly into 128 x 64. The slices have white bleed pixels either happening on the top/bottom or the left/right edge. I went into zoom-in mode to check the edge, moving the selection by arrow key on the keyboard, I found I couldn't align the selection precisely to align with the artboard, no matter how I play with it. e.g. out the box 02, typical reading 03 can't be aligned. Please help explaining why is that. thank you Frank UX Forum.afdesign
  20. Hello, I am just creating the master pages and paragraph styles of a book, that I have produced in Indesign and imported via a PDF file. When ever I try to create a paragraph style for the pagination with the alignment "towards binding" (sorry, I don’t know the exact term in English, in German it’s called "Zum Rücken hin"), Publisher 1.7.1 is crashing. I hope, you’ll find a fast solution! Thanks a lot in advance Karl
  21. I am preparing a book of A6 size where each page has one paragraph of a few lines (5 to 10 lines as in a Quotes book). I want each page's paragraph to be Vertically centered in that page (frame). At present I have to do for each paragraph separately. Is it possible to add this feature to the existing style of a paragraph so that I select a para and click on the style to align the para vertically on the page?
  22. See screen shot. Using the Box style "as is" the frame is always not aligned to the actual text "frame". As you move the handles on the frame, the "box" underneath moves in unexpected ways due to the alignment problem. The most significant problem is centering. Since the centering is based on the outside frame, the inner "box" is not aligned properly. It is a bit difficult to work with it as is.
  23. Hi, I've had Affinity for about a week now and as an /affordable/ piece of software, I am loving it. Also bringing back memories of work experience several years ago at Wilford industrial estate... ;) but anyway, on to the problem.... Having a little bit of trouble with the full justify option - it just doesn't do anything attractive for my layout at all. Expecting it to space out my words nicely stretching across the full width of the frame and instead it's just adding a massive gap between the last two in the text frame! Not sure if there are settings to correct this or if the tool simply doesn't work as expected. Can anyone clarify what's going on with this one? Thanks.
  24. Hi, Starting this topic on request from your reply on my tweet: https://twitter.com/affinitybyserif/status/1097431968562769921 So I have a multiline text that has the "Justified All" property set for text alignment. As you can see in the video, depending on the zoom level of the viewport, the text behaves in a weird manner. As if at some zoom the text is displayed as expected, at some other zoom the first line ignores the Justified All property, and in between there is a glitch that displays half of the text correctly, and half of the text wrong. When exporting, with these dimensions, I got the half/half result. This issue was pretty annoying, and my workaround was to create multiple text layers instead of one multiline. I included the .afphoto document to this thread, as well as the video and screenshot I posted on Twitter. Hope this helps to investigate the issue, as it is very annoying. Best regards, Jordan Enregistrement_de_l’écran_2019-02-16_à_17_30_24.mov Thumbnail-WTF.afphoto
