  1. Hey everyone! It would be much faster if double tap on a layer would let you rename it. Best wishes, Shu
  2. Hello. I am working on comic book lettering and using Groups to prepare the balloons for future slicing to PNG format (they are inputs for comic book composer we are developing). I try to keep it clean and organized by using simple naming code "LANGUAGE platform ###" e.g CZE mobil 001, CZE mobil 002, etc. Sometimes I need to split the ballon and/or add new one which messing up the order. I usually put there an extra letter (001a, 001b...) but I would prefer to keep numbers only. Is there any chance to rename all groups in 1 step by defining syntax I described above? I found the batch renaming for Slices is not possible but what about the Groups, Layers...?
  3. Say I have a master page with page numbers. Then I want a second one, the same master with different style numbers for a section of the book. Then I want a third one for another section, still the same basic master page, without any numbers at all. So I could create the first master page, duplicate it twice and save me the trouble of creating each one separately. But then, I do not get the option of "renaming" each master page when I choose Spread properties, for instance. So that is my question, how do I rename an existing page that I duplicate.
  4. I work on a project now where there ie so many files to be created (about fifty) and the have to be in the right order. To do so, my artboards are divided in 4 categories : A B C & D hence my artboards renamed A1 A2 A3.. B1 B2 B3 etc..... Therefore I spend a lot of time renaming artborad. Is there any way to bach-rename? Or at least edit the convention 'Artboard {n}'? On windows you can press F2 to rename (cannot find a way to set up short cut for renaming in affinity). So if you select 50files and you press F2 you type "NEW NAME" and all the files will automatically be renamed NEW NAME (n). Would be nice to be able to do the same thing with artboard. At least when I'm renaming a artboard (or layer or any object), it would be nice to be able to rename the next one by pressing tab.
  5. Hello, Iam new to using Affinity and have been using Photoshop as part of my job for many years. My boss has recently purchased this software, but with the nature of work we do, I am missing the Bridge feature which allows me to view and make basic edits to images, rather than having to open all images all at once, or individually. Also i would think a batch renaming feature would be useful. Please can you let me know if any of these features are appearing in a future update. thanks Gemma
  6. hi there, It seems i can not rename Artboard1, Artboard2 etc. in names i prefer, am i right or overlooking something?
  7. Hi, Have a reproducible hang here for you - Affinity becomes unresponsive forcing a Force Quit when you do this... 1. Save As... 2. In the Finder dialog (List View) right click a file and select 'Rename...' 3. Hit Enter 4. Affinity cries 5. Well, it doesn't actually cry, it just does nothing, and continues doing nothing, whatever you do. Thanks Wayne
  8. Hi, Can you please add a new feature to rename the name layer with a hotkey in Affinity Designer/Photo? Maybe cmd + r/ctrl + r; or at least give an option to assign hotkey for this operation Thank you!
  9. When renaming Layers, AD ignores standard MacOS text editing conventions, mainly, passing Opt key + Forward or Back Arrows should move the cursor to the next or previous word, respectively. What seems to happen now is that AD's Kerning command intercepts the keystroke and attempts to increase or decrease letterspacing, which of course is an irrelevant behavior for renaming a Layer. Interestingly, Cmd + Forward or Back Arrows works as expected, taking the cursor to the end or beginning of the line, respectively. Basically, all text editing behavior within the UI should respect MacOS keyboard equivalents. Editing text inside container or blocks should respect AD or the user's custom keyboard equivalents. Thanks for all the hard work; the latest betas are coming along VERY nicely!
  10. Hello! I was wanting to suggest adding a feature in the application that gives us the option to retain or sequentially name our saved files just to keep everything organized better. As it is now for me I plug in my SD card to my iPad and import photos to the camera roll, then I import that image from photos into the Affinity application. Is there another way that I can import the images to keep the file names? I edit quite a few files at a time and in Lightroom Mobile it retains the file name even coming from the camera roll, I am hoping it can be implemented in a future update for Affinity! Thank you so much
  11. Hi from XD i suggest the artboard rename directly on double click, here an example.
  12. When I rename a symbol in the Symbol panel, the new name does not propagate to instances of the symbol already on the page. Also, could renaming and deleting be brought inline with other conventions within Designer... Click the name in the Symbols panel to rename Rename inline rather than a modal box Select in Symbols panel and hit Delete key to delete Thanks for your consideration.
  13. Hey there, what I'm missing so far regarding the swatches panel: - Easy renaming workflow of swatches with F2 and Tab, and to go further: something like Renamy would be even more awesome - Select and delete/copy multiple swatches. At least it should be possible to click/select and delete via DEL-key to easliy clear up the swatches - "remove unused colors"-option to quickly clean up a palette - usecase would be mostly the the document-related palettes - Convert already added swatches to Global/Spot-Colors - Ability to easily set spot-color-name the same as swatch-name and vice versa (without copy-paste, perhaps with a checkbox in the settings of each swatch) - Missing a direct "Add current color to palette as Spot Color" very much! - The to "Add current color to palette [...]"-Icons are not very distinctive. I would've added at least a big triangle in the left bottom corner of the button regarding the "add as global color" option to suit the appearance of those color in the swatch-list/grid below - Setting/checkbox/action to add swatches via "create Palette from document/image" directly as Global/Spot-colors. - Indicator to see in which Colormode the color originally was created and then have the ability to quickly switch color from RGB to CMYK-Mode and vice versa (perhaps even be able to determine the rendering/conversion while doing so) Greetings, Johannes.
  14. Create a new symbol. Rename it in the Symbols panel as "MySymbol". The original instance does not acquire this name, but remains simply "(Symbol)". Drag an instance of the symbol on to the canvas, this does have the correct name "MySymbol (Symbol)" Now rename the symbol in the Symbols panel to "NewName". The neither the second instance, nor the original update to reflect the new name. Now drag an instance of the renamed symbol to the canvas, again it shows the correct name "NewName (Symbol) We now have 3 instances of the same symbol, all with different names. Surely the name of all instances should be updated to reflect the source symbol? I can see an issue where the user has explicitly renamed a symbol in the Layers Panel, and this is then over written by the base symbol being renamed in the Symbols panel, but the present system seems pretty messy and incoherent to me. Perhaps the layer naming should be… "Instance name [base name] (Symbol)" e.g. "Reflected Logo [MyCorp Logo] (Symbol)" Thoughts?
  15. Hi When i try to record a macro in the windows version of Affinity Photo, I am unable to switch between layers. For example if I create 2 duplicates of my background layer, and make a high pass adjustment to the top layer, I am then unable to switch to the layer beneath to make another adjustment. Also, I am unable to change the name of any layers whilst the macro is recording. Any help much appreciated.
  16. I know you can rename an object by selecting it on the layer panel and then double-clicking on its name. The problem is that if you have a large document with thousands of objects you first need to select the object you want to rename on the document and then spend a looooot of time locating the highlighted item on the layer panel so that you can double-click on its name in order to change it. This should be a lot easier. You just need to add a "rename object" option on the layer menu (and/or the context menu you get for the selected object). We use Affinity Designer to create graphics we then export as SVG files. The name of each object in SVG files is usually VERY IMPORTANT so that you can work with them on web applications. Naming objects should be a lot easier when you have multiple objects on the document. Another way to fix this situation would be that whenever you select a SINGLE object on the document, the layer panel would automatically scroll to that object on the list to make it visible to you (instead of you having to manually look for it on the list, which is a pain if you have hundreds of objects). Once the object has been located for you on the layer panel, you can easily proceed to rename it by double-clicking on its name.
  17. Whenever I export a file, if before clicking save I rename a file in the system file-picker dialog, Affinity crashes and must be force-quit. The attached screenshots should illustrate my point. Steps 1) click export 2) in the dialog, rename any given file 3) export as the previous name of the renamed file 4) click save -> crash.
  18. Hello, I miss the functionality for organizing groups without touching the mouse. If I had a shortcut for renaming a group or an element or could select one or more elements/groups with the keyboard, it would be a lot more comfortable. There are already the standard shortcuts for cut, copy, paste, etc, but it seems to me like they have not much value as long as I had to use the mouse. What do you think? Best regards Leon
  19. When i click on a layers name to Rename it, sometimes it just highlights the name of the layer in blue but does not accept the name I type. Once I hit Enter on the keyboard, it defaults to making the layer (Group). Any ideas?
  20. Not sure if I've included this before? When you click on a fill in the swatch panel. Right click > Rename-fill/Delete-fill 100% guaranteed to crash the app every time.
