ianstudio posted a topic in Suggestions for the Affinity Suite of ProductsHi, I really wish I could dock the "Tools" to the right of the screen: either to the left of Right Studio or to its right (basically at the right edge of the screen).. or even horizontally at the top. To me it is a big annoyance when using the Affinity suite that the only choice is docked as it is now or undocked (I don't like undocked anything usually). I would imagine it is annoying for many right-handed people.. a decent number of people are right handed no ?!!
I'm aware that the focus of development has not been on essential workflow elements but I seriously beg you to have a look at some of the basic daily work topics for daily work users (it's not features that differentiates AP from PS ... it's workflow!) Taking a closer look at the windows handling: Dragging a window from the docked position to a free floating position leaves the windowns in XXL size instead of adjusting it to the current document size - it's a nightmare! Is there a chance to center the document within an optimised size of the window adapting to the current size of the document (within the current zoom state)? The situation gets even worse since the handles for adjusting the windwsize are active in such a small region that it's extremely hard to resize a window to the desired size. There's probably 2 pixel space that makes the cursor change from horizontal to diagonal and vertical resizing (or simply clicking in an unused space) ... why don't you make handling easier? Why don't you automatically center the document within a given window but leave it to the user to center the document with much effort? I would as well appreciate a button that releases all existing documents from a docked position to a free flaoting position, automatically rezising and cerntering them - what an easy programming task but a big improvement for the users ...if you want to be competitive (you got the features), start with meeting the basic handling requirements!
