In the list view of the swatches pane any new swatch gets an auto-name with its defined values. Unfortunately these names don't auto-change when the color definition got changed by the user. This results in wrong swatch names, both for global and non-global swatches. To avoid wrong names the user has to rename any swatch manually after changing its color. To fix the name it needs several clicks to the manual renaming option window. Suggestions: – auto-change a swatch name when its color definition got changed – enable renaming on double-click the swatch name p.s.: in the actual renaming option window a hint appears: "This is not an undoable operation." – Why does it warn me that I can undo this operation?
When I open additional panels from the menu 'View' > 'Studio' (?) (german version: 'Ansicht' > 'Studio') they come up as grey, empty rectangles. No content, no text, no header/title. I can move them around by click-hold at their upper edge (the un-visible title-area) but they remain empty grey rectangles. When I release the mouse and grab+move them again, then the place underneath them appears only grey now, too. It covers the content of the panels which were underneath, just leaving their black header and title text. Also, on moving such additionally opened palettes around they change their size occasionally, for instance from a square to a long vertical stripe. See the two attached screenshots of both monitors: – screen of macbook (15") with app palettes only – 2nd screen (22") with app main window (document, tools, layer panel) Quit + restart the app resolved this issue, all recently opened palettes appear now with content. They are positioned somewhere on the screen above the already existing palettes. thomas
Whereas around 'beta 5' the autosave of windows obviously got realized ( https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/93-remember-window-size/&p=649 ), now in beta 1.0.17644 I'd appreciate to develope this feature a bit more: a.) Save window/palette/pane * settings customizable (by name, date etc) – and b.) Consider palette positions for document window in Separate Mode. Designers often work with two monitors and use one to place the document, the other to place palettes. Therefore it would be helpful to be able to save customized window settings with customized saves for various usage. Additionally the Separated Mode / document window could like an improvement: Momentarily in Separated Mode with palettes cusomized arranged the/ a new document window a.) has a fixed size and position and b.) appears to ignore the customized palette setting. Also, once you hit the mac-system green button (upper left corner), it simply fills the screen – regardless any palette * window. * [ ps: "palette" – to avoid misunderstanding: I dont mean a color palette like in the swachtes pane but any pane/palette/parameter/options window. ]
