  1. OK, I'm very aware that maybe most of the designers and users of the awesome Affinity Designer are not into scientific posters, books or documents, but I'm a mathematician and I love the app myself, as much as I understand and use it. :) Hence, I got a small, but important feature request: a plugin/native support which would allow one to use the power of "local" LaTeX typesetting for symbols, fonts and other scientific notations. I am aware I could use the great LaTeXiT + drag & drop, but still, I envision my workflow as follows: When I have a complicated figure to draw, I fire up Affinity Designer and I draw, but for annotations and everything font or math symbol related, I'm not quite covered. I have installed some versions of the native LaTeX fonts (CMU) to use system-wide, but some are missing and still doesn't feel the same. So for symbols, equations etc. I would like to be able to input a LaTeX formula (delimited by the well-known dollar-signs) and Affinity would typeset it locally, using the fonts included in the LaTeX distribution installed on my Mac. What do you think? Honestly, I think that such a feature would be useful for all kinds of technical drawers, although they may use CAD-style apps. But you'll never know when you need a formula on your piece of art, right? :) Moreover, in perspective, I'm sure this would provide immensely useful for the future Publisher app, with inter-operability. Thank you for the support and the awesome apps!
  2. Hey everyone, I'd really like to see a formula editor in the final version of affinity publisher. It's necessary for almost any type of scientific publication and maybe would lead many students and scientists to create their work in affinity publisher. Without this tool it will be useless for them. Best regards Janek
  3. Hi! I know this is far from being prioritized, but it would be great if there was a way to write math in Affinity Designer without having to manually draw lines for fractions, etc. Perhaps implementing just a few typesetting features from LaTeX would greatly help in my scenario, which I will most likely still encounter a lot of times in the future. Thanks!
  4. Hi folks, Affinity's already allows calculations on input fields : HUGE thanks for this, really. I would propose providing even more flexibility and power with "real math" everywhere. Let's illustrate with an exemple: I've done the following with Opacity (http://likethought.com/opacity/) http://drbl.in/hHAz If you look closely, you'll see the know has stripes like a vinyl. Here is it: And this is how it's done: Or why not this: As you can imagine, the power of this is quite amazing: • 100% parametric, you set it the way you want • 100% non pixellated texture • Not speaking about using formula in other fiels than color only (ie: this element is 50% of this one) • You name it
  5. Here's one for you that a lot of programs don't seem to get right: Perfect Triangles Every so often, I need to create a triangle in a layout. It would be fantastic if the triangle was based on a true equilateral shape, where each side where the same length (rather than building a triangle based on a square, which results in two sides that are longer). Additionally, Even when I can create a proper triangle with resizing one dimension by about 86%, the central rotation point is still mis-placed. I've sketched something up so that you can see what I mean. Thanks! Anton
  6. So I trying to get a simple isometric box going by using this technique but I can't seem to get -30 in the rotation working. What am I doing wrong? Also, what the operation syntax for presents. I mean I can figure it out with a calculator but how do i enter it in the scale field without having to resort to doing it in a calculator? thanks
  7. What I'd love to see in Designer is more love for Math! For starters, consider allowing Math functions inside numerical input fields that could benefit from it. For example, a function similar to this: Width: [ 0.5 * sin(x) + 0.25pt ] would make the line look like this: A little icon could be added next to the input field: that would bring up a dialog box where you could edit, load and save functions. Imagine all the possibilities! Next, having something like Scriptographer in AD would be truly awesome and mean we can enjoy parametric drawing like this: I know this is quite exotic request and would probably make more sense as a 3rd party plugin/extension. Nonetheless, I would like to know what you an others think. Thanks for listening! :)
