  1. HI - Am trying publisher for our village magazine. Is there any way of getting the pointer to revert back to the move/select tool after creating or editing a text box? At the moment it leaves it in text box mode so I try to select something else and it creates a box. It's annoying that I have to remember to select the move tool everytime. IN pageplus this wasn't an issue. Any help appreciated. Thanks
  2. I have a Logitech MX Master 25 mouse. The onscreen cursor moves at appropriate set speed in all apps & on the desktop except in Affinity Designer. It moves at much faster (and uncontrollable) speed. I don't have that problem in Affinity Photo, just Designer. I've tried all speed settings and the mouse works accordingly in everything other than Designer. This may not be a problem with Affinity, maybe it's a fault with the mouse software/driver, but I thought I'd check if anyone else has encountered such a problem and could they fix it. I am also contacting Logitech for their help.
  3. I need to hide the pointer (central cross with big 1024px tool-size circle round it) while applying the liquify turbulence tool in Affinity photo. I'd like to be able to drag the tool down the screen from top to bottom, filming as it causes its effect, without seeing the tool pointer/cursor. I know pressing space bar turns it into a much smaller hand, but that's still no good and acts as a view tool, pulling the artwork down too. I suspect it can't be done, but will be very happy if someone here can prove me wrong.
  4. If you hit the pulldown switch of the rubber size, you need to be quit left of the downarrow-sign. If you are more than the middle on the right, the pulldown size select closes immediately. If you reach the borders at the right and at the bottom of a picture by using the rubber, the rubbercircle disappears behind the border of the picture and become an arrow, but if you try to touch the scrollarea, the rubbercircle appears again. Best Regards
  5. First a little background I have been a faithful user of Freehand since the times when it was called Virtuoso, I'm still using it now, I never liked Illustrator because it had (and still have) a lot of redundancies. I tried several times to migrate from Freehand to Illustrator never totally succeeding, now I use Freehand to make the fundation of any design and then to Illustrator to add the embellishments, fx, exporting, etc... Ok, enough history, the question is: Do we really need two pointer tools? One of the most time consuming and frustrating things in Illustrator (among many others) is switching from one pointer to an other depending on what you want to accomplish. In Freehand there are two pointer tools, the "regular" one and the "direct selection tool", I rarely use the "direct selection tool", why? because you can access everything with the regular one, it is no matter if you have all your elements in groups, elements pasted inside elements or points on a path (you can even align and distribute points within the groups), all you have to do is grab your pointer tool and then if you want to sub-select to edit something just press "alt" and voila. This kind of behavior for the pointer tool, gives you total freedom and effectively optimizes the workflow, that is why I love Freehand, you can work really really fast. I hope the Affinity team consider this and try it.
  6. I use a Surface Book with Affinity Designer and frequently I end up drawing little spots around the canvas when I rest my hand on the screen to draw. In MyPaint there was a way around this in Preferences > Devices where you can set what pointers interact with what like so: I was wondering if Affinity Designer could benefit to gain some options like this. The current workaround for this is disabling the touch screen in device manager on my Surface so that only the stylus pen works, and this frequently gets annoying when switching back and forth and not being able to use my fingers to zoom or press buttons in the interface.
  7. I've never used GIMP or Photoshop, so I don't know how common this feature is, but how about an option in the Edit drop-down (and also the right-click context menu) for Paste To Pointer. This would be useful in both Photo and Designer. The software I've always used it in was Corel PhotoImpact X3, and it has become a great convenience to me. Having the copied object attached to the pointer helps me when I'm zoomed in to an area where the original copied object is not located (saves having to zoom out to pick up object, move to the needed location, and then zoom in to paste precisely). It's also convenient having the object already attached to the pointer and, therefore, faster.
  8. As per the title. It's normally [C]. Until such time as there's a better alternative, this might work.
