  1. I'd like to suggest you to create a simple method to connect the C point perpendicular to the AB segment. If you need some inspiration Coreldraw has a pretty decent way to do that - direct and intuitive. BTW, measuring tools would be great too.
  2. It would be great to be able to toggle between the current behavior and the "traditional" behavior of the rulers while changing the page origin. Sometimes I wish to move the page origin a specific amount, and that's not possible with the current behavior as the rulers also shift with the page origin as one drags. If we could leave the current ruler positions until AFTER letting go of the mouse, one can move the origin a specific amount relative to the current ruler measurements. Thanks for your consideration and phenomenal update!
  3. Good day! Add a "Ruler" - left and top, as in the version for the PC. Implement this feature soon! For Affinity Designer / Affinity Photo
  4. Please add ruler to designer on ipad
  5. Windows 10, Publisher build 174. I only found this by accident. I can imagine why, when dragging a new guide out, it might be useful to turn the Preview Mode off - if only temporarily at least - but I don't see why a simple click should do it also since clicking on a ruler doesn't actually do anything else (as far as I know, it doesn't look like it does).
  6. Hi, I am not able to 'pull' the ruler on to the work area (document workspace) anymore. I'm pretty sure i could do that in the earlier beta version. But then I might be missing something. Love Affinity Publisher though. Great work! Neil
  7. Hi all What does this ruler show? I cannot read these markings as millimeters ...
  8. I apologise if this subject has been covered elsewhere, but I could not find it. I am new to Affinity but with 25 years of Adobe experience. Being able to view the 'bleed' in a document before printing is very much desirable but I found mention of it elsewhere as a likely upgrade. My main question is of being able to move the ruler origin in a document so that like in 'Illustrator' you can easily change the origin while you are working to suit different origins within your design that you need to work from. It is very rare, when working, that you don't wish to shift the origin for the purpose of measuring simply from a particular object. Is this already possible, but I've missed it in the help or tutorials or is this something that might be provided in an update? Otherwise, I am enjoying the experience!
  9. I wasn't able to find out how to set the ruler in percent units wich is really a big need for me. When I go to the zoom or ruler I do not see "percent" as an option. Thanks
  10. Affinity Photo for the iPad Pro is just great and I hope Designer is coming soon as well. Until now I had only used AP to edit photos, but finally I got around to try it out as a drawing app and it rocks! But nothing as good that it can’t be better so here’s my list of features I’d like to see. One is quite simple: add a line tool to shapes. There is the arrow tool but then I need to select none for the arrowheads and if it had been the other way round, I’d be content. The reason I ask for it is because I often add a thin line to frame my cartoons, for instance. Procreate has a solution for it; you just draw a line and press and hold and it snaps into a straight line. But since iOS support a ruler why not add that? Well, it wouldn’t work on the desktop version or for other platforms, but a ruler would be handy as a support when drawing straight lines. Then I’d like to see something like Photoshop’s Magic Wand - a really quick selection tool. Click. Select. (And now I remembered a useful feature in Procreate; to be able to select a layer as a reference layer.) Finally I would like to see a do not disturb mode, a clean sheet or drawing mode. By that I mean something like the full screen mode you have, where menus go away - but they snap back too easily! When I have chosen my tool I’m all absorbed when I’m drawing and I work fast and intensely. Then it’s frustrating when all the menus pop have or I inadvertently touch some feature I don’t want. If by clicking the little icon in the upper right corner really meant that everything but the canvas go away and stay away until you click it back again, it would be great. And then the adjustments for the brushes should go away, too. That was all and forgive me if this was posted in a wrong place and feel free to move it where it should be.
  11. intelligent_rulers_upd2.afdesign Because some are waiting tooooooooo long for better rulers including a “change origin point” feature, we made a flexible ruler for dm, Berthold points, Pica points, Didot points, DTP Cicero and other units that you can change easily for your own needs just in seconds. Even if you need furlong, light-nanoseconds, Fournier point … no problem. Now you can have many rulers with different units at the same time. And they even can measure curves. Some backgrounds can be found somewhere. Have fun and help to improve Affinity apps. The old ones: intelligent_rulers.afdesign intelligent_rulers_upd.afdesign
  12. Hi, I've had a quick search for these related items and couldn't find and they're niggling me, not having them in Designer. They're related to Rules/Rulers/Guides... Perhaps new feature requests!?!: Drag ruler back into the ruler area to remove Right-click ruler bar for options (remove all, place rule at a set distance, units change) Drag ruler outside the ruler area to force a scroll When dragging a new ruler out, so a live measurement on the line as well as in the transform pallette (maybe?) (perhaps fixed here: Thanks
  13. Hey, I saw a request for this feature last year, and haven’t seen any discussion on it. I’m designing a book cover, and need to put in guides. I’m not seeing a ruler option. Why doesn’t this have a ruler? Isn’t that kind of important in any design or photo software that supports print-ready projects? am I just missing the option? just downloaded the app, and this was the first thing I tried to do. I’m excited to get to know the app more. can I have a ruler, please? Haha
  14. Hello, my problem is: when editing some pictures the rulers flicker. Very noticeable and disturbing! No matter what tool I use. I noticed that the problem does not occur with all images. Also, there seems to be no pattern!? It seems arbitrary. I've attached a video in which you can see that quite well. It was already in the previous version and I was hoping that it will be fixed in the new version. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Sorry about my english! Thanks. 2017-11-29 at 22-34-34.mp4
  15. Hi. Please add the ability to change the ruler's unit of measure from pixels to inches. Print-related work is often measured in inches (here in the U.S.). I am sure other units of measure would be appreciated by others, as well. Please allow a right-click on the Ruler to change the units of measure. Thank you!
  16. I am trying to draw diagrams with lots of loops. I have posted an example below. I tried for a few hours last night before eventually giving up when Designer crashed. What would really help is to have guide tools such as those available in Sketch Pro. The Ruler, Protractor, French Curve and Perspective tools in particular would be very helpful. Oh, and plus 1 more for arrow and other heads and tails for lines (although I note lots of acceptable work arounds for these). Otherwise, a great product.

  18. Hello, every time I maximize Affinity Designer, my screen gets black. Complete black, also the task bar is gone. After some seconds the screen comes back. But on moving the mouse it changes to black again. It only appears, when the rulers are active Affinty Designer Version is 1.5.3.69 Affinity Photo is not affected Operating System is Windows 10 64 Bit I am using a Intel HD 530 graphic card with I7-6700 It only appears with latest driver version: 154605.4771 With older version 154514.4590 there is no problem.
  19. Hey Affinity Community first off thanks for your great tools I couldn't find anything so far so I'm gonna ask here: Is it possible to export the blue ruler guidelines ? (Designer) I'm currently working on a template that needs a bunch of guidelines for ppl to use in every program so I'd like to have these guides visible. other quick solutions are also welcome have a good weekend

    Ruler not accurate

    Recently bought Affinity Designer. I like it. Until I found out that the rulers are not accurate. I make decals for miniature models. Today I made my first one in AD. It appears that 10mm in real life is 12,5mm in AD :wacko: This means that AD for me is worthless for making things that need to be accurate when printed. I designed a decal with a length of 27mm, but in print it is approximately 20mm! I imported a 1 cm example from an other (accurate) program as svg into AD. See the pics for the shocking differences.
  21. Hi. Is there a ruler functionality? It would be very useful on print oriented documents. If there is already, i cannot find it...
  22. Version: 1.5.1 Windows 10 Monitor: 150dpi (Hi DPI) Scaling: 150% 1. Create new Document A5 (see Skalierung_Neues Dokument.jpg) 2. Set Zoom to 100%. => 5cm on ruler are 10cm in real (see Skalierung_100%.jpg) 3. Set Zoom to "Tatsächliche Größe" Shortcut Strg+8. => 9cm on ruler are 10cm in real (Skalierung_Tatsächliche Größe Strg+8.jpg) My suggestion ist that one of the Zoom configurations lead to a view with original size (1:1) on the monitor.
  23. Issue: When creating new guides by pulling them down from the ruler, the guides are only as wide or tall as the document. They do not extend to the rulers. If you release the mouse and then move the guide again, the guide then is visible across the entire workspace into the rulers. Impact: Minor annoyance, but it is a pain to have to stop and restart moving the guides into place. Repeatable: Yes Please let me know if you need more info.
  24. It would be great to have a ruler to measure out distances. I bought this program to layout my kitchen cabinets & yard projects, and design my woodworking projects. A ruler to measure distances is critical. Also a protractor tool wood be nice to measure angles of lines. Finally, I read about some folks who make their own rulers with a box, but this if difficult to navigate if I can't locate the angle focal point at the end of the box. It would be nice if we could pivot the angle location at the end of the box rather than the standard location of the middle of the object. That way you could drag the box end point to one side of the measuring point, set the angle pivot point at that corner, then drag and angle the box to the other measuring point. Thanks for considering and helping! Brandon
  25. • Snapping for ALT-CLICK-DRAG into the rulers. • Changing of the (zoom) cursor if (h)over rulers. • And please, an extra text ruler. :wub: • And of course: changeable 0;0 or any X;Y. :wub: • Perhaps a second scale in a second colour (yellow / layer colour) on upper ruler edge for activated objects. :wub: :wub:
