  1. I'm a new user of the Affinity Designer. I'm wondering if I can change the text to flow vertical while keeping the upright text orientation. For example, Chinese and Japanese text can be written vertical direction.
  2. Simple, 2-page document, letter-sized. Double-sided printing options are working backwards-- flip short side actually flips on the long edge, and flip long side actually flips on the short edge. I have seen a print driver that under certain circumstances gets this backwards, but in this case, I'm using a printer and driver that I print to many times a day in exactly this fashion, and other applications work correctly with the same printer and driver. Otherwise enjoying so far.

    Crop orientation

    When using the crop tool and selecting 8x10, at the bottom it says Shift+O to cycle orientation, but nothing happens. O to cycle overlay works fine.
  4. So I've been using Affinity Designer now for about six months and just on this last artboard group that I've been working on I noticed that my artistic text tool is wonky. When I select the tool then move the cursor to create the size of text to start with, the text is much higher above my cursor and when I type, I am unable to get the cursor to select the bottom most row of text without using the keypad. It's like the box thinks my text is all much higher than it really is. Help! I am not loving the keystrokes to have to change my text.
  5. Hi, I have opened a previous document to edit and wish to change from portrait to landscape but can't deselect the portrait option when I reopen document setup. Any ideas on what the problem could be? Thanks
  6. Hi, I installed Affinity Photo 1.5. Just like the version I replaced, it imports portrait orientation in landscape orientation. The problem occurs with both PEF files and DNG files. Interestingly, I imported a PEF file to Affinity Designer and the orientation was correct. I have attached a PEF file that loaded incorrectly to Affinity Photo. Solution please. Thanks, Anthony
  7. In the forums, it appears as though the answers to my Q are to use a Frame Text tool, but the topics are a year old and I wonder if I've missed something. The canvas opens in portrait mode and I want to work with it in landscape. I can rotate it but text enters in the original orientation, so 90 degrees deviated from how it will be used/read. Many small segments of text throughout the canvas are needed. Can you suggest the most expedient solution? Thank you.
  8. Hello I encounter problems exporting a rotated image. While the slice preview looks okay, the exported .jpg is cropped and rotated (as if I never rotated the image) Here are the steps I took: Open a .CR2 with landscape orientation. Rotate the view (not the image) by 90 degrees counter-clockwise in the Develop persona. Develop the raw. Reset the view rotation and rotate the image counter-clockwise in the Photo persona so that it has a portrait orientation. Do some additional cropping. Export using the Export persona. The preview looks right, but the exported image is not: while the file 'canvas' is right, the content of the canvas is back to its original rotation (landscape) and the rest of the canvas is white. Additional issues I encountered when I wanted to circumvent this problem: Ignore the pre-made slice and make a new one. I tried to size and position the slice correctly by using the expressions ph en pw in the height and width fields of the transform panel. But this makes the slice now landscape oriented (while the image itself has a portrait orientation). So being adventurous I used pw in the height field and ph in the width field, thinking that would solve the problem. Turns out the slice has the size of the image before I cropped it. So it looks like the expression values refer to a pre-crop and pre-rotated state of the image. I hope this is of any help!
  9. When using Straighten in Crop, the grid appears in Portrait orientation and the top node where you can actually rotate the image is off-screen. It's unhandy and a right royal pain to have to drag the grid down every time! Why not use the Straighten tool instead? Because Rotate is faster and easier if you have a good eye for level. At least, it would be faster and easier if you didn't have to go chasing the grid every time. Could this please be fixed to fit both the size and orientation of the image like it is when simply doing a crop?
  10. Dear Affinity photo, If I try using the Affinity extensions in Photos, I am presented with the photo in the incorrect orientation, rendering it useless. Please can you advise? Thank you.
  11. Forgive me if this has already been addressed. I did some looking, but couldn't find anything. In AD, is there a way to make tools such as align (object), text tool, and nudge respect the current rotation of the canvas with regard to creation and manipulation? I'm sure it's no easy task, and understand why the program would behave this way—respecting the object's coord/origin according to the artboard—but it just seems counterintuitive at times. Don't get me wrong, the ability to rotate the canvas is fantastic, especially when it comes to packaging work, but not being able to manipulate objects in an intuitive way when the canvas is rotated counteracts the benefit a little. Thanks! :)
  12. Ever notice that your workspace/interface needs are quite different when you're working in 1) Portrait orientation versus 2) Landscape orientation? It's already quite constraining that computer screens are landscape-shaped – who ever told Steve Jobs and Bill Gates that computers should prioritize left-right over up-down?? Blame the fact that CRT displays evolved from Television tubes. :^( But damn them for making LCD screens even more h-o-r-i-z-o-n-t-a-l! But if you're designing a vertical layout or (lord have mercy on you!) an actual vertical portrait, you're reduced to cursing the gods of prevailing horizontality. We portraitists have to make the best of it, and get every vertical obstruction off to the side of the screen. Affinity, you can HELP! Please give us the option of switching the Toolbar into a vertical bar! (I know you'd have to figure something out for the doc tabs & parameter readouts, but you'll sort it out in your usual clever way.) A gift from heaven would be a toggle/switch command to flip from your usual interface layout, to one customized for portrait/vertical documents – with a vertical Toolbar. (I'm aware of Separated Mode and Toggle Full Screen – very helpful. But I need the toolbar and the info read-out, and don't want to be constantly Tab-Toggling interface On & Off, or Tool Bar Opt-Cmd-T.) Thanks for your serious consideration! - pbass
  13. Went to open a portrait .DNG file saved by Photoshop, but Affinity Photo opened in landscape. The desktop icon and preview were in portrait as expected. It appears the orientation flag is being ignored.
