  1. Hello, I have two lines. From the first, I move point A with the node tool to position B. Now, I want to move the point A from a second line with the same values. How can I do this?
  2. The desktop version of Affinity Photo has a series of helpful Move tool modifiers available in the toolbar. Which of these are also available in the iPad version either as a button, a menu option, or as a multi-touch modifier? Enable Transform Origin (I'm particularly interested in this one) Hide Selection while Dragging Show Alignment Handles Transform Objects Separately Cycle Selection Box (attached screenshot is from Affinity Photo for Mac 1.7.2.151)
  3. I know, I can move by typing x or y plus …, but if possible, it would be great I can do this in the Transformation Menu like this ...
  4. I have to close the window and open again to move.
  5. When I move documents to a project folder, I can usually move one but when I try to move the second one it crashes.
  6. Updated: Fixed, see last line. Hello, Odd behavior experienced: In a particular file I can no longer move-clone items. To be specific, I mean when using the Move tool and you press Ctrl and then drag an item. The expected behavior is to have the item move-cloned. My resulting behavior is the item is simply moved. The erratic behavior is experienced with many kinds of item: tried with curve, shape and pixel. Only in this document. Affinity Photo 1.7.0.367 on Windows 10 Update: found that I had a document-wide pixel selection ongoing (marching ants). Ctrl-D to deselect and now the Move tool works as expected.
  7. I have designer for the iPad. When I use my Apple pencil and try to select/tap objects neither tool works correctly I think. I have to "drag" with my move tool to select object and then select the node tool in order to select nodes. Neither of them work by tapping the object. Is this how it works or am I doing something wrong.
  8. Has hiding the selection line been asked about before? I used this a lot in PS and it was very helpful when tweaking/aligning the image portion to see behind the marching ants. Also, even though I'm impressed with the image adjustment tools, some buttons for moving a single pixel at a time would be useful as well. Thanks
  9. When an object is selected it has the blue transformation handles. When moving an object with the keyboard arrows, or nudging it, is there a way to have those handles disappear so that I can see finer details about where I'm placing the object? I feel like this functionality was working when I first installed Affinity, but now it seems to have disappeared. Thanks!
  10. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.227. I'm not sure if this behaviour is correct or not - so I'm not sure if it's a bug or not - but I'll try and explain what's happening. I can create some Artistic Text and use the Transparency Tool to give it a transparent gradient. All well and good. Then I can create another bit of Artistic Text elsewhere the page. However, the transparency gradient of the first bit of text has been copied over to the new text but in exactly the same place as it is in the first text, which means that the transparency gradient no longer covers the second text. Is this expected behaviour? It took me a while to figure out what was happening when I first saw this. I've attached a GIF to show what I mean.
  11. When I have a lot of nodes in a small space, I am finding it very hard to move a specific node. A lot of times i go to drag a node and it catches the smooth tool right next to it instead. It would be nice if I could use the select tool to select the node or nodes I need to move and then (with move selected) drag from anywhere on the canvas to move the nodes in what ever direction I am swiping. I figured this would already be an option since very often there are multiple nodes in a small space and you cant zoom in too far to separate them because while zoomed, you cant move the node very far but I cant seem to find a way. When I try to drag from anywhere, it ends up selecting a different object instead (I have to drag from directly on the node which means I have to be zoomed in too far to move it where I need).
  12. Hello! Often there can be the situation that you want to move (more exact: translate) selected object(s) by some distance given by other existing objects/snappable targets on the artboard. I'd like to propose a very simple way to achieve this - by being able to use the Center as a handle. See attached image. Maybe holding CTRL while dragging the Center could invoke this 'locked' mode. Most 3d graphics apps have an Axis tripod (= the analogy to the Center here), and in some (Cinema 4D, Rhino, Softimage, ...) the axis can be used in the exact same way. It's called "temporary pivot", or "working pivot". Very useful! Example: imagine a ladder, with equidistant rungs. One rung is missing, and you want to copy the neighbour rung to fill the hole. How would you get the right snapping distance quickly? With this method, it'd be simple. The Center, by now, is used to 'assist' Rotate and Scale. It could easily be utilized to assist with Move, too. Hope it's clear. Thanks for considering!
  13. Affinity Designer version 1.6.5.123: Grouping objects moves them. there is a another post about this problem but there is no fix. Group Bug.afdesign
  14. Two problems that, for use of Affinity Designer in technical illustration, I would like to see resolved: 1) What is the best way to scale (resize) an object, say up or down a certain percentage? Do you have to do the math and enter new values in the width/height edit boxes in the Transform studio panel? 2) What is the best way to move an object a certain distance in a certain direction? Again, do you need to do the addition/subtraction and enter the calculated values in the X/Y boxes of the Transform panel? Thanks for assistance!!

    Move selection

    Hi, I use every day this app on my iPad Pro and I love it but I have a problem: impossible to move little object with no zoom. The app auto select the anchor point the object and resize or distort object and I can’t move. Is it possible to disable the anchor point or reduce the auto-selection? in this video I can move only with zoom thanks 2CCF06F1-8F08-4AD7-AD4F-3564F3285E8D.MP4
  16. Problem: With my fire fighting pre-plan work I need to carefully draw one of 4 colors over top of property images from Google Earth. I also need to select various pre-made objects like Gas and Propane symbols located on 40 layers. 1 - When I try to precisely begin to draw a yellow fence line for instance, too often the tiny pause I make while carefully positioning my stylus gets interpreted as an automatic color picker and my yellow color disappears. I have to reselect the particular yellow all over again, and again. Very frustrating and needlessly slows my work down! 2. A similar thing happens when I select an object on a layer like a fire hydrant to relocate. Suddenly a whole different layer might get selected and moved accidentally which can ruin the map. Ultimate Fix: Create a preference menu where each of the tools can have that option turned off, or the hold and pause time for auto/option can be adjusted Easy Fix: I'm sure this can be done in just an hour or two and would make a massive improvement to the interface. Just add one preference for now globally where a user can select how long or short the delay is which evokes the auto/option for Affinity in general. A fast or slow slider or just a drop down- 0.1 sec, 0.2 sec... The auto/option trigger delay is already part of your programing. You just need to add a small routine where the user can change the timing. cheers and I really hope this happens soon. Affinity is perfect otherwise! btate
  17. I love the little dimension lines that pop up when you move a feature to show you how close/far the feature is from the edge of your document. This is a very small problem, but in close quarters, the handle you use to rotate the feature you are moving can obscure the dimension line.
  18. Hello! I'm quite new to the Affinity family. I've been using Affinity Photo for some time to do some basic photo editing. Now I'm getting into some design work to submit for surface pattern design. This requires that I paste many layers and shift them around to make appealing patterns. One thing I can't figure out how to undo is when I click a layer/object that layer sometimes ends up being duplicated! It's incredibly annoying because I only want to move one layer, not duplicate it. This happens when I have the move tool selected and attempt to move the layer. I can sort of reset it by going to the layers panel and manually selecting a new layer, moving it to see if it is duplicating or not, and then going back to the layer I actually want to move. But after a few alterations, it starts to do it again. This happens in either Designer or Photo. Is there some setting I have triggered? If so, how do I turn it off? Thank you.
  19. Hello, there is a bug: 1) open JPG file and Document rotate clockwise 90 2) select a part of image with selection tool 2) move the selection 3 CTRL + C and CTRL + V ==> my seletion is copied and paste as new layer, but copied was a different part of image
  20. Hello, I miss option to move/shift image in lens correction options of develop persona. When I fix rotation and vertical or horizontal distortions, I want to scale image up as less as possible to remove empty areas caused by corrections. And when I scale the image, it can't be moved relative to canvas. Something like shift-x, shift-y would be nice to have. Miro
  21. I’m a new user of the Affinity Pro app on iPad Pro. Recently, I’ve noticed an issue when I try to use the move tool on smaller objects. Even though I click in the middle of the object when I try to move it’s position, the object keeps resizing, as if I was dragging one of the corners. I’ve tried using the Apple Pencil and my finger, but the same problem. Would appreciate some help, as I like using this app.
  22. Hi Affinity, just wanted to report a small annoying issue. How to reproduce: 1. Draw a rectangle. 2. Hold ALT, Grab the rectangle and drag it - so it get's copied 3. Let the new rectangle drop on the right side of the original rectangle so they touch 4. Move the new rectangle with SHIFT and 2x Arrow Keys to the right 5. Hold ALT, Grab the new rectangle and drag it - so it also gets copied Now look at the second rectangle. It gets repositioned to where it was, before the moving with the cursor keys happend. Thanks for taking care of that annoying habit. Tim
  23. Hi everyone, I've found a very annoying bug, where if you move a layer with the arrow keys on the keyboard and then try to ALT + Drag to duplicate, then the layer you dragged the duplicate from jumps back to the location it had before moving it with the arrows. See the attached image to better understand the issue.
  24. I'm not sure if this has been requested or not. In fact it might already be in Affinity Designer but I couldn't find an option to move an object from one layer to another (without changing its position). I looked for it in the beta as well and I couldn't find it. If it is there could someone clue me into where to look and if it isn't there, I would like to suggest it to be added (in time of course).
