  1. I see no improvement in solving the scaling issue reported already a long time ago... elements in a VECTOR image shall be scaling with ALL of their properties... that's the point of using a vector editing software. In AD this is not working. Symbols - if contain text on a path are pretty much useless if needs to be scaled - see the attached image. Strokes - you need to enable scaling for each and every stroke. Same with FX... Why can't it work as it should across the whole AD - that ALL elements AND their properties are scaled unless specified otherwise? Would you please FIX this... as much as I love AD, those scaling issues are making using it a nightmare.
  2. Hey there! I'm enjoying Affinity Designer and still trying to get my head around different concepts. I've created a landscape document (A3 size) and expected it to print exactly in A3 landscape. Alas, it turned out that the document is printed on A4 by default. This prompted me to activate "scaling to fit paper" and I picked A3. This time, the landscape document was scaled down to fit on a portrait A3 paper. The only way to get my A3 landscape design to print on an A3 landscape paper was to switch the document back to portrait and turn my design 90°. This isn't very user-friendly though, because I want to have the document in landscape mode (of course). Am I missing something? Thanks, Georg
  3. I have previously used Graphic for Mac 3.1 this provides the ability to set a scale for a document. eg 1: 10, 1:50, 1:100 This feature is invaluable when creating scale drawings for real life objects.Examples include the design of kitchens and room layouts in properties. As a relatively new user of Affinity Designer I was disappointed to find that there's no option to set a scale on a drawing. Affinity Designer is without doubt a great product, which I will happily continue to use. The additional of scaling capabilities would open even more opportunities for users like myself. Keep up the great work ! Can't wait for Affinity Publisher to be released ...
  4. I purchased Affinity Photo for multi-layered pixel art creation, but I'm finding that I cannot use the Merge Layers or Rasterize layer features because they automatically choose a filtering algorithm which causes blurring. How can I fix this? This currently is a deal-breaker for me unfortunately. I've tried the following: Using Nearest rendering in the Performance settings (this causes everything to look as I expect on the canvas while editing the document, but the blurring problem occurs as soon as a multi-layer document is merged, exported/flattened, or a layer is rasterized) Choosing Nearest filtering during PNG export. For some scenarios this appears to work around the issue, but for general purposes it's not a solution since I frequently need to be able to merge selected layers together as part of my workflow without exporting the entire document I still cannot find any way to merge layers or rasterize selected layers using Nearest filtering. The result is that my artwork frequently is distorted/blurred from what I'm seeing in the on-screen canvas/display. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide
  5. I have a 65 MB Designer file that has started crashing. I was scaling several buttons (created with one of the gold effects). It was made into a symbol, but I couldn't seem to change the symbol and have it affect all buttons across my file. So, I was scaling each button individually with the Transform tool. Upon scaling the 15th button or so, Designer crashed. Subsequently, starting over, it crashed again even sooner. After crashing several times and haveing to redo everything each time, I made just one change, then saved and it crashed. How can I get my file to save, and not crash? Since it's a large file, I'd need to upload via Dropbox to have it checked. Thanks for any help! Karen
  6. How do I stretch the (blue) sections between the objects (noteheads) proportionally, at the same time keeping the the barline+“barline-to-notehead-distance”+note (section coloured with orange) kinda locked together, with nothing changing between/among them? Basically, I want to stretch what is between the left and right guides in a way that all the objects remain unchanged, but only blue sections stretch proportionally. In constraints I turn off objects’ responses to stretching. This is done. But what is the way after?
  7. In Affinity applications, proportionate and disproportionate scaling behavior change based on if it's a shape, group, or type. If it's a just a shape it's unconstrained by default and you need to hold shift down to scale it proportionally, If if it's a group or type it's constrained and proportionate by default and pressing shift make it un-constrained. I find it difficult to remember this inconsistency when working fast even after all these years (I am using all Affinity applications since their public beta) I would like to know if there are reason and benefit from this kind of inconsistency that I am unaware of. If there's no obvious benefit, could we please have a consistent behavior for scaling? It could be constrained and proportionate by default for everything (shape, group, and type) and by holding shift it can be scaled disproportionately. Or it could be reversed (like the Adobe programs) but consistent for every type of object/group. Would like to hear your thoughts on this. PS. I thought this topic must have been discussed but could not find anything relevant, so please forgive me if it's a repeat. scaling behavior in affinity _2019-08-17_121517.wmv
  8. Select all objects on a page - including text. Group. Drag to scale. Everything scales except text. Is this a bug or a setting option?
  9. Hi there, I resently have an issue with the Move Tool. I wanted to scale a 1px weight line broader. Only to check if the middle Part is correct. But then I noticed that the broader line was scattert. Here ist the Result. So I tried to work around, sure I can duplikate the line, but thats too laborious. Then I tired it in Gimp with the scale tool. And there I can choose between the diffrent Interpolation. My Question ist now, why I cant do that in Affinity? Here the Gimp Version, how it shoul look like. Hope someone can help me.
  10. Create text, shapes, lines of varying thickness Group Grab a corner and drag to scale Everything scales nicely except for the lines and shape outlines (strokes), which stay the same thickness. Kind of defeats the object.
  11. I am very new to this, having previously used Microsoft Office Publisher to desk-top edit our parish magazine - and now switched to Affinity Publisher. I know that I should be able to get the text and frame to scale together if I use the outlying handle on the bottom right corner, but it does not seem to work - text overflows (see image). Could it be something to do with the formatting of the text? Surely it should work whatever the format? I can start with all text inside the box, but when I try to scale it using the "spare" handle, it just doesn't work as I've seen it do in the tutorial. Any suggestions please??
  12. So I have a layout that has numerous text boxes, that was originally designed for 8.5x11". I want to scale the design down to 5.5x8.5". How do I scale the text boxes so that when I scale them down, the font is resized automatically? Currently this is what is happening: I grab a handle of a text box that contains 12 point font, and scale it down. The text box scales down, but the font within does not. The font stays the same size (12 point), and eventually the words in the textbox simply overflow the textbox, because they no longer fit within the smaller dimensions of the scaled textbox. What I am trying to achieve: I grabe a handle of a text box that contains 12 point font, and scale it down. The text box scales down, as does the font within. The font goes from 12 point to whatever is need to keep its layout within the textbox (let's say 9 points). The words in the textbox don't overflow, as they maintain their original layout within the textbox. Ideally I want to achieve this without converting to curves, as I want to retain the ability to edit the text.
  13. Hello At the moment it is not possible to scale a placed PDF with % always in relation to its original size. This is necessary if you work with scale plans etc. My request is to have a % number in the transformation tool to scale PDFs always to its original size, like it is already possible with pictures. Thank you.
  14. Unfortunately the following bug was not fixed in version 1.7 (1.7.0.367): https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/38289-dual-monitor-with-different-scaling-tool-cursor-image-huge/ The same problem still exists with Affinity Photo 1.7 under Windows 10 1903 with Surface Book 2 (200%) and external monitor (100%). I'm really disappointed that this bug still hasn't been fixed after over 2 years. Please solve the problem, so Affinity Photo is not usable with dual monitors.
  15. System information: Operating system: Windows 10 (Anniversary Update) Dual monitor setup One monitor is a 4K screen (3840 x 2160) set to 250% scaling The other monitor is (1920 x 1080) set to 100% scaling Affinity Photo Version: 1.5.1.54 Steps to reproduce: Simply open Affinity Photo in the 100% scaled monitor. Select a tool (other than Move Tool), and move cursor over your image, it will be very large and pixelate (see screenshot with View Tool, large hand icon) Other Notes: If you move Affinity back to the high DPI display, tool cursor is perfect there. Move Tool, which seems to just use default cursor does not have this issue. Otherwise, I am super impressed how well Affinity works already on High DPI displays and multi monitors, it's not yet perfect, but far far better than a large number of Windows programs and competing photo editing apps. Well done!!
  16. I am using Designer to make assets for a board game, and the slice tool is really great for separating into the digital vs print needs. However, when I open them to print, it's made assumptions about the scaling. I'm exporting at 300dpi because that's the print size but most are scaling them to fit. If I manually export, I can set the scaling and paper size. Is there any way for me to change these settings upon batch export? If not, does anyone have any workflow suggestions to do this? I can't be the only one with this problem.
  17. I need to export jpg's for an IOS app and need different dimensions for different phones. I was planning to resize the jpg's but then several people suggested to use pdf instead. I am aware that you can scale pdf's when they contain vector and fonts ... but how does the scaling work with images?? Is the algorithm different? I always had the believe that a pdf simply CONTAINS a jpg and that the rendering algorithm are the same?
  18. I have just updated my affinity design and the behavior of the text bloc as changed. How can resize my text bloc without scaling its content ? I dont want to manually insert line return each time I want to change the size of the text bloc. Thanks
  19. You’re propose your app as a tool for work in vector. This is not true. You can add a lot of elements easily, work with color, blur etc. But once you need to scale the vector object you’ve created YOU SHOULD MANNUALLY GO TO EACH OBJECT AND SET “SCALE WITH OBJECT” Could you please set as priority ticket for your developers add a SCALE FUNCTION when you can just click on the object, click in Edit Menu “scale”, set ratio or percentage and you will get scaled option of your image. In addition your export feature need so much power from my Macbook that comparing it to the Illustrator. I’d better avoid all of those coll things you’re proposing just to get scalable and adopted vector file.
  20. Hello! I’ve got a problem with Affinity photo for ipad. Whenever i try to scale an img down it gets really pixelated and the quality gets poor. Wher can i change interpolation or just fix this? Thanks in advance
  21. Title explains what I am looking for. When I try to scale something via the selection tool, or try to right click something, there seems to be no input for something more exact for scaling such as units of measurement for X and Y, or typing in a percentile to the original scale. As for Translations, I am looking for the method to translate the image along X or Y while having a wrap around to create patterns. Is this in the plans for the future or have I overlooked some possible options?
  22. I originally put this in feature request, but I realized that this is such a fundamental flaw to my workflow that I decided to label it as a bug. Let's say I create a rectangle. Now, I use the corner tool to independently round each corner of the rectangle to different sizes. I then scale up the rectangle. Since I am scaling, I would expect the corner radii to scale proportionally as well, but they don't. The result is that the scaled shape is no longer proportional to the original. The corners are all messed up. I know a partial solution to this would be to bake the corners first, and then scale it, but if I do that, then I will be unable to re-adjust the radii later on. Coming from illustrator, this is super frustrating since it was never a problem back there. Still, I do enjoy Designer much more than illustrator, so it would be excellent to see this fixed soon!
  23. I think a lot of us want this. Corners don't scale proportionally unless you bake them. Baking means its a huge pain to go back and change it later, so that isn't a solution. Please add an option to scale corners proportionally like it does in illustrator. Thanks!
  24. This should be addressed to the Affinity Range. Dashed lines should not scale by length when adjusting the width, only the width should increase, as it stands, if you increase the width of a dashed line from say .5mm to 1mm the dashes increase in length knocking any phase adjusts you have made "out of whack" effectively destroying the phase setting. What should happen is the width of the dash should increase and the length of the dash should not, this means any phase adjustments you have applied will be retained. This leads me on to Alignment, there should be an alignment option to create a symmetrical dash, the corners would have a symmetrical L shaped dash and single lines would have a half dash at each end. See bottom image for an example. Affinity @ .5mm 12-6-0-0 Affinity @ 1mm 12-6-0-0 Dashes scale by length and go out of alignment. Adobe Illustrator @ .5mm 12-6-0-0 Adobe Illustrator @ 1mm 12-6-0-0 (No length scaling dash stays put) Adobe Illustrator with Alignment applied, makes a neat dashed line.
  25. Hey guys, today I encountered this strange bug : If I copy a PNG from the browser to the clipboard and then use the command "New From Clipboard" to create a new document, a new document is generated where the image is reduced to a black background layer and additionally scaled smaller instead of the original image on a transparent background. Has anyone ever encountered this bug and knows why this happens? I have already tested copying different images and from different browsers, always with the same result. Many greetings MrDoodlezz
