  1. Is there anyway to control the size of a bounding box without scaling the page size down to the size of the object for every icon I create? I export an .eps from AD for import into Keynote. The .eps icon is only half an inch yet when imported into Keynote the bounding box is the size of the original page in AD that the icon comes from. When more .eps icons are added to Keynote, selection starts to become a problem because of the number of icons and the excessive bounding box size. Why is the bounding box the size of the original page and not the vector object itself and how can I reduce the bounding box without having to create new page that is the size of the icon for every icon? . . .
  2. Hi, I am a new Affinity Designer user and I am very satisfied so far by the application. I have an ellipse object and applied a Gaussian Blur effect on it. When I select the object, the Designer displays the bounding box selection without taking into account the bounds of the effect. Is there any option the snapping operation will include the effects of each layer
  3. When placing smaller images into existing multi-layer Photo image, I sometimes see the frame edges visible as annoying thin white lines (sometimes dashed). I have tried copying and pasting, using File: Place, or dragging icon, but nothing seems to help. See attached JPEG, note line between red arrows. It doesn't seem to happen consistently, varying from one placed image to another; remains after import into Photoshop. I cure it using Inpainting brush tool but should I need to do this? Use is for large, fine art print. Late 2012 Mac Mini, 16 GB Ram, OS 10.14.6. Affinity Photo 1.8.3 intended to replace Photoshop CS6.
  4. Good day! I know there is a way to turn this base selection box into a regular selection box. But that's just temporary. Is it possible to keep the regular selection box forever? Base selection box is not always necessary, actually less necessary than the regular one. Any kind of help would be highly appreciated
  5. Hi, there is some bounding box mischief when I sellect artistic text with some letters colored without the fill, just with stroke. Try to sellect the text with some other objects.
  6. I, along with @v_kyr, have been trying to assist @GreenGirl in this thread on Drawing Automation based on formulae and range of input values? One problem we have run into is that the svg exported from the template designer file includes a transform that includes a rotation matrix, which affects all subsequent objects that we create in the svg file, when imported into Designer. Apparently, you can reset the bounding box of your basic tic by simply pressing the '.' (period or full stop) key! One of Designer's more useful, but well-hidden features.  I created an oblique line, and exported to Oblique line.svg  I then rotated it to the vertical. It maintained its bounding box and exported to Oblique line rotated.svg. This svg file included a transform and rotation matrix.  Pressing the '.' key reset the bounding box and exported to Oblique line rotated.reset.svg. However the exported svg from this at stage 3 ignored the reset and was the same as that produced by stage 2.  An older workaround (if your object is a closed path) is to create a box around it with the rectangle tool, and use the intersect tool on the pair. This doesn't work either. It still reverts back to stage 2 above. I would expect that the output from stage 3 would not have any transform and rotation matrix.

  7. Congrats to the 1.7 release! Upon pdf import the bounding boxes of text objects are not as neatly adjusted to the text field as they used to be in AD 1.6. As I remarked in the beta forum, I would really love for AD 1.7 to revert back to the behavior of 1.6, since excessively sized bounding boxes make alignment of text objects in 1.7 much more cumbersome. Alternatively, it might be a solution to have a shortcut to make bounding boxes fit tight to text objects? Thanks for considering this!
  8. Hi, I came across this error so many times I lost count really. Its like this, whenever after a prolonged use I select any shape, those blue outlines around the shapes go invisible. Only after restarting AD does the problem solves. Does anybody else face it? I have AD installed in both my desktop and laptop and in both cases this problem doesn't seem to back off.
  9. I am new to photo editing. Could you explain to me about a bounding box and how to use one.
  10. When I have two texts like this: "123456" and then "yay" and select this two text and want arrange it vertically to the some object with align bottom, they are aligned good but text with special characters, because text have some base line and there are characters which are out of this line (ypj... they are below). I mean when text like "123 abc..." it is ok, but when I write "yjp" and other signs which are extra sized (I am sorry, don't know describe it in english), because their base is lower then others, then text is aligned higher then other text without this extra characters, because bounding box take the extra sized characters. Question is, is there posibility change the bounding box to the base text line?
  11. It is not a big problem, but looks like some sort of a minor bug, therefore I thought I might as well inform you of such occurrence. I have attached a file in which the problem is visible. There are 5 circles with text in them. When I open the file, made in AD 1.5, some circles (assets with symbols) have much bigger area than the sum of their content - numbers 5, 3, and 4. Another 5 and 3 are bound by a correctly sized area box. What is interesting, when I make some changes to the text in any of the bugged symbols (e.g. colour or text), all instances of the symbol get repaired - their bounding boxes shrink to the correct size. The correction is saved with the file, so it must be connected with the creation of these assets - I would assume it has something to do with the initial size of the text box. Therefore, there must be some problem with refreshing the assets when placing them on canvas... or something Bugs or not, Affinity rules still bug test.afdesign
  12. If you select an raster element and then the crop tool and attempt to drag say the top center handle down BELOW the bottom one, the corner handles FLIP. Not sure what that is indicative of... but if it doesn't have any meaning, then it should always be a regular Crop bounding box.
  13. in both Photo and Designer, how do we toggle the blue bounding boxes on and off? Not so much an issue in Designer, but in Photo its essential... you can't see your composition clearly with that blue box distracting you, especially when creating digital art and photo retouching. Help to find this option in the menu would be appreciated!
  14. Hey guys, I thought it would be really convenient to add Flip controls to objects' bounding boxes. Basically what I'm proposing is to change the cursor when it hovers over the top/bottom and left/right control handles while INSIDE the bounding box - in distinction from the shear cursor which appears when hovering OUTSIDE the top/bottom and left/right control handles of an object's bounding box. Additionally, adding a modifier for duplicating (alt or option keys come to mind) would make this a slick timesaver and UI improvement and shouldn't be too hard to code. Check out the attached image to see a mock-up. Cheers guys, the apps are rocking more with each release! Preview: AD master file: Flip cursor.zip
  15. Hi, I've recently bought Affinity Photo and I'm really content with it. Great work. There's only one thing I can't get to work properly in all cases, and that's snapping. It seems to only work in certain situations / settings. For example: 1: Create a new document. 2: Turn on all snapping types. 3: Add a vector layer (rectangle). 4: Copy the vector layer and test if snapping to bounding boxes works (corners, midpoint, etc.). 5: Open a pixel image. 6: Copy and paste the image into the working document and close the imported image tab. 7: Test again if the snapping still works, by moving the image to the vector layers. 8: Copy the pixel layer, and delete the vector layers, so only two pixel layers remain. 9: Try to snap one of the two remaining pixel layers to the other pixel layer. Snapping to bounding boxes will then suddenly not work anymore, at least over here. Maybe this isn't a bug and I'm doing something wrong. I hope so. :) Thanks.
  16. When the layer opacity slider is opened please hide the object's bounding box. Once the slider is opened the space bar does not work to hide the bounding box. Every time I have to close the slider, press and hold the space, then reopen the opacity slider. It would be so much easier if the bounding box disappeared automatically as it does with most functions. 2nd choice, make it so the space bar was functional when the slider was open. Thank you.
  17. Hi I've picked up something that's really bugging me… the weight of the bounding box seems to change, and it doesn't seem to be anything obvious that I'm able to replicate. If you look at my screenshot, you'll see that the bounding box around the star is super crisp – a single pixel width. In the same document, the bounding box around the rectangle is slightly thicker and is anti-aliased which makes it look less precise. I was wondering if this is a retina issue (I'm not using a retina screen), but then on a super sharp retina screen, the lines would appear as different weights, not sharp versus fuzzy. Is this a bug, or something I can fix with a setting somewhere?
  18. I made a drawing with 4 triangles each rotated 30 degrees from the neighbor. The bounding box for each triangle is just the size of the triangle. When I select all 4 triangles the bounding box is just big enough to hold the 4 triangles. But when I select a group of the 4 triangles (containing nothing else) the bounding box is considerably larger than the 4 triangles and offset to one side. This causes any rotation to be around a point not in the center of the triangles. Why is the bounding box larger and offset from than the objects in it when it's for a group? See attached. I don't know if this is a bug or if there is a reason it's supposed to do this. Beta 1.0.21861. Also when I do an addition or subtraction of these 4 triangles the result is not correct. Could this be related? I could have created a 12 pointed star but that wouldn't have worked for my needs.
  19. I have a rectangle and an ellipse, as shown on the left. When I make the ellipse a mask on the rectangle and select the rectangle I get a blue line around where the rectangle is, but the bounding box and handles are surrounding some imaginary item. Shouldn't the bounding box either be around the parent object or the masked image? In MAS it's around the masked image. Using beta
  20. Hello, I've found a problem in bounding box calculation for alignment. Version: Affinity Designer 1.1.2 I created two horizontal lines (holding SHIFT key) using "pen tool". Then I created text object. I made a group from one horizontal line and text object. Finally I selected the group and second horizontal line and tried to do horizontal alignment (left, right, space with 0px...). You'll see the horizontal line in the group is ignored for bounding box calculation and group is aligned to text only (see the attachment H_align_left_1.png). Once the horizontal line in the group is rotated or one endpoint is moved vertically so height of the line object is not 0px the alignment starts working correctly (see the attachment H_align_left_2.png) Br Jaroslav
