  1. I'd like to see Affinity incorporate draw paths into vector drawings (i.e., the sequence of when each line should be drawn). This will be helpful in coupling the use of Affinity with software that creates explainer videos.
  2. Working with Masks is greater than in any other application I have worked with so far, the ease of having child layers and being able to stack a mask over the other truly is amazing. However... One thing that I have found disorienting is that when I use the colour picker tool, rather than picking a value of black an white from the mask that I am working on, Afphoto decides to pick a colour from the Parent Layer (Even when the Source is set to "Current Layer" while having the mask selected). Even though working a mask will only paint with the luminosity value of the sample taken, as you may well know, the values on the Parent Layer are part of a whole and having the Colour Picker Tool to take a sample from the Parent Layer and not the Mask you are working on results in picking an unwanted value when I am actually trying to pick a shade of gray that has already been used on said mask In the long run this means that for me to be able to take the desired sample, I must go to the colour wheel / sliders manually and try to guess what that value was or take my attention away from the whole and having to isolate the mask to get the value that I want. If the colour picker could be adjusted in a way that it picks the shades of gray FROM the mask while working INSIDE the mask it could certainly enhance workflow speed and consistency. Thanks for the attention and time to read this request. Cheers!
  3. Hi! As a feature request, it would be so helpful to be able to break down colour groupings within a single Application Palette or Document Palette. For example, I'd like to group my primary colours on their own at the top, and then create secondary and tertiary groups/rows for tints and shades of the same colours, or secondary colours, etc. Being able to create an organized hierarchy within a palette rather than having a mass grouping of all saved swatches would be immensely helpful! Thanks.
  4. Although the range of picker types you have is quite wonderful, I'm used to working with HSB/V (Brightness or Value) instead of HSL (for lightness.) It's a common way of specifying colors especially in the land of video. HSL is a similar user experience, but there are a lot of times where it just makes sense to think of 100% brightness (which, to get the same RGB value, somehow works out to 50% lightness.) (And as you probably know, Adobe Photoshop's picker has HSB, not HSL.) This website does a great job of dynamically showing the difference: http://colorizer.org Would you consider adding this option to Designer/Photo/Photo for iPad? Thanks.
  5. Dear Affinity, Thank you for your recent decision to allow 90-day free trials of your software and 50% discounts. I recently purchased the PC license to Publisher and so far, I'm enjoying the easy to use and intuitive functionality. One thing that is "kind of" annoying at the moment is the inability to customize or change the default "_" in filenames to indicate pages into "-" or however additional filename delimiters the end user desires. If not already, will you kindly include the Publisher export file names to be more customizable? I know Affinity Photo as the option to rename or set desired options in the Export interface. If customizing delimiters are too intensive at the moment, at least please consider the end user (like me) to change the default underscores into dashes to indicate page number, when exporting to PNG, JPG, EPS, etc. Thank you, Ronald
  6. Background: I often will create several designs on a single sheet when they have a common theme so I can keep a consistent theme. Once finished I like to save them individually for import into Publisher or whatever I'm working on. It would be nice to be able to have a "Save Selection As..." option to allow for quick export. Current method: Select the elements desired. Copy (CTRL+C). New From Clipboard (CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+N). Then "Save As..." on the new document (CTRL+SHIFT+S) and close it. This creates a correctly sized document that can be pulled with ease into Publisher. I actually use AutoHotKey to do this all with CTRL+F12 but a built in way would be nice. Proposed method: User highlights what they want. Under "File" two new menu options are present. "Save Selection As..." and "Export Selection As..." in case you want to export a SVG. This could possibly be under the "Selection" menu but saving files seems more logical under "File".
  7. Please add the ability to add pure vector based vector brushes based on vector objects for texture instead of PNGs. For now we can only add pixel based vector brushes. Being able to add pure vector brushes based on vector objects would allow us to create vector based textures and designs, which would be much easier to handle for any kind of (print) production. For example I tried to separate the colours to a spot colour PDF for screen print from this awesome work by Pierre Kleinhouse made for the Affinity Work from home series https://youtu.be/lL6gc8Oi2uw .afdesign file on DropBox: https://affin.co/LD2020PierreKleinhouse It was sort of a nightmare. I couldn't find a way to create a vector based spray texture within the Affinity Suite like in the second screen shot with the chimney. Expand stroke, working with spot colours, working with boolean operations ... a lot would be easier.
  8. svg width and height in mm instead of "100%". Affinity SVG export has problem in apps that requires absolute dimensions in mm
  9. I'm working on a graphic-heavy report and re-pagination from the layout breaks what would be accurate citations. This is handled manually at the moment (unless there's a way to jury-rig the Index manager?). Request Citation Manager in the top three formats (APA, MLA, and Chicago/Turabian). Ability to set whether the document uses an end-of-section or on-page-where-citation-occurs approach.
  10. Does anyone know if there is a way to record your strokes on Affinity Designer for iPad (like what Procreate does). I desperately need this ability for a project. Screen recording isn't working because it records in real time so there's so much extra time recorded and also unwanted notifications etc. I need just the actions recorded without having to spend hours rewatching & editing the video for unwanted footage & dead time. If anyone can share a way to do this on Affinity designer ipad I would be VERY grateful!
  11. Hi I had brought this up in a Designer forum, but nothing happened. It matters even more in Publisher, hence this request. I am being required to submit a PDF for web viewing (iTunes Digital Booklet) that has its Initial View options set for Full Screen. Although I can set other initial view options (zoom, facing pages etc.) in my third party reader, it seems that the Full Screen option is elusive. I cannot find any freeware app that will set Initial View to Full Screen, and It seems wasteful to buy a full-blown copy of Acrobat just to do that one thing. Please could you add a full set of Initial View options to the PDF export dialogue. It would be a valuable - and logical - addition to the program. Thanks, Alan
  12. The startup screen is nice, it makes the app feel less empty when you open it. It has some easily accessible templates and guides. What I'm missing though is an Open Recent list ala Blender or a more graphical one a-la Adobe (i'm perfectly fine with a blender-like one tbh but you might want to experiment some more). Here's a quick mock-up of how I think it could work (Only showing the 6 more recent files, you'd rarely go more than that, and only 3-4 sounds like too few) Oops just realized the titles for the default screen are above, not under.
  13. Greetings I had a suggestion, the "space before" style should be able to be a negative value. For example, I want my bullet lists closer to the line above them since that line explains what the list is. The thing is the list is being pushed away from that line because of it's spacing. I don't want to change the top line's spacing because it's great for the rest of the document, just the bullet lists could be closer. Is this a possibility or will it open a can of worms? Thanks.
  14. It's been well-observed that the Affinity Suite 'doesn't support' the import of PDFs with embedded fonts, and attempting to do so causes a variety of issues. However, Designer imports EPS and PostScript files with embedded fonts perfectly accurately, because it outlines all the embedded font data. It would solve a great many problems if Designer offered the option to outline the embedded font data, as for EPS files, in the PDF import dialog. I'm presuming that this would be a 'relatively easy fix', as Designer can already outline EPS at import, (and it can outline font data in PDFs when exporting).
  15. Adobe Photoshop has an option to convert Paragraph Text to Point Text (Artistic Text) and vice versa. https://textuts.com/type-tool-in-photoshop-cs6-point-text-and-paragraph-text/ It is very useful at times. Hope to see this feature soon on Affinity Photo! 😅
  16. Hello! I would love to use Affinity Designer for in our workplace. However, until certain features are in place, it would be impossible to do so. Will you be adding more "special" features to Designer in the future that compares to Illustrator?
  17. I'd love to see a separate Artboard tab that can control the position/size of Artboards instead of relying on the Transform tab. Coming from Illustrator, I think its a small quality of life update that could benefit many users.
  18. Hello Affinity Team, Thanks for creating a great product! There is a feature I miss. Being able to show more panels at the same time. This would be really, really, really useful, for example when trying to add a symbol to specific layer. If I would be able to see both the symbol panel and the layers panel, I would be able to drag and drop the symbol in the right place. It's a big pain to have to select a layer, or group of layers and then try to add the symbol to the canvas, as the symbol never ends up in the right place. Also, it would be useful to be able to see more panel, when having to switch tools which are located in different panels. Now, as opposed to the desktop version of the app, which has this feature, you need to click and touch a lot! Is there a way to get this feature? Best, Dan
  19. Hi Affinity team - are additional crop overlays (e.g. phi grid, golden triangle, etc.) anywhere on the roadmap for Photos on iPad and desktop? Would be lovely to ditch Adobe tools altogether but this is literally the one thing I still use Photoshop/Lightroom for. Thanks!!
  20. We may have discrete Sections available as Fields but running footers/headers making use of specific paragraph types (i.e. Heading 1, which might have Flow break to the top of the next page). Ideally, we could configure which paragraph styles are accessible in View > Studio > Fields. My suggestion would be to have it user-configurable from right-click the "Edit <Paragraph Style>" Paragraph > Field Options Available as Field? First or last available? On Page or Spread? (see relevance of first/last in previous question) This would make for some really robust footer/headers on master pages, esp. in education or technical materials with dense, structure order to their contents, allowing us to guide the read through. The Field referencing the other Paragraph style occurring in the main document could be styled by any existing paragraph style as expected.
  21. I am slightly reluctant to move entirely to this software due to the inability to refine the area inpainting draws information from. I suggest adding a GUI for selecting where inpaint will fill from, or perhaps allowing us to fill from a specific layer (so we can make a layer with only the info we want to fill with, though this would be very very janky in my opinion.) I don't enjoy being one of those guys complaining that this app isn't a certain other product, but this is honestly the only thing holding me back from making the switch. I love AFP for literally EVERYTHING else it does better for me. Thank you for considering~
  22. Hello! Inkscape has a feature that allows changing the location of the "focus point" of radial and elliptic gradients to make them non-symmetrical which allows for creation of some amusing effects. Here's an example from Inkscape's official tutorial page (link): https://inkscape.org/ru/doc/tutorials/tips/tutorial-tips.html (Excentric radial gradients) It is described in SVG reference docs: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Element/radialGradient The following attributes seem to be responsible for it. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Attribute/fx https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Attribute/fy I'm not sure how hard it is to implement, but to me it's a pretty simple yet interesting feature that I would love to see in Affinity Designer Cheers!
  23. Hi Guys 1.8 finally has smart objects (embedded objects) and it's come a long way. As a next step, can we make this live links please? Meaning if the original file changed outside of Affinity Photo, we will have an option to manually update it in the layers, or just auto update all layers from external sources.
  24. Hi Guys My workflow has changed dramatically since I started using Affinity Photo some 4 odd years ago. Also I havent been around here in a long time. As a result, I've been forced to return to PS because of the streamlined scripted workflow. I'd like to return to Affinity Photo, but that won't be possible until such time that scripting is supported. This has been asked for several times over the years, but so far seems there has been no movement in this regard. Any news?
  25. It would be great to be able to open a bunch of image files as one Affinity Photo documents, with each image as an independent layer in the Layer Studio. Thank you for your consideration and all you do.
