  1. Windows 10 Home 1809, Designer 1.7.0.231. I've just noticed the following problem: * Open Designer on my main monitor, basic HD, nothing fancy (scale at 100%); * Create a new document and put a 2 inch square on it; * Zoom to 100%; * Measure square, it's 2 inches square - as expected; * Move Designer window to laptop display, basic HD, just whatever came built-in (scale 125%); * Measure square, it's now close to 1 and 6/8ths of an inch square - not great, but easily fixed; * Zoom to 100%; * Measure square, it's 2 inches square again - as expected; * Move Designer window back to main monitor; * Measure square, it's now just under 2 and a half inches square - but we should be able to fix that; * Zoom to 100% and... oh dear, that's wrong; * Measure square, it's now just under 3 and 1/8ths of an inch - some thing has gone wrong somewhere. And no amount of re-zooming, minimising the application, or anything else I have tried will fix it, it stays looking too big until I re-launch the application. Just saving the document, closing it, and then re-loading it doesn't fix the problem, I've got to bounce Designer entirely. Designer is set to use the built-in - default - Intel GPU.
  2. Hello!! I am starting with Affinity with the 10 days trial, so far I think its a great software! I use a HUION USB PEN TABLET 420, it works very well, but if im using some tool, like the brush, and I lift up the pen, and after a few seconds I put it on the tablet again, Affinity automatically switches the tool to the eraser without pressing any key or button. I tried to disable the buttons on the pen, but still it switches from the current tool to the eraser every time I lift up the pen and put it down again. Hope this helps to improve the software! :D Cygemth.
  3. Background: I've been using InDesign since version 1.0 jumping away from PageMaker and Quark 3.0. My studio uses InDesign six days a week and builds publications from one page to 50 regularly. I'm going to document my test of Affinity Publisher, and I would be interested in how it is going for other studios. Is anyone planning on making the switch before the beta ends? My reasons for looking at alternatives are price and cloud integration. Adobe increased the CC subscription price. Stinky, but what bothers me more is the constant need to integrate the cloud. Every day I wait for the InDesign font-sync to load. Grab a coffee and cookie. Before that was active hyperlink checking. It's a constant problem. My Adobe subscription renews in three weeks. Perfect time for a serious workflow test. Day 1: Download and test 14 page document test. Quickly learned that layers aren't right, but found out that layers will be adjusted in future versions. Day 2: Single page flier test Typesetting a quick color form. No layers. I enjoyed the experience. Good Tabs Alignment Paragraph styles Clip to canvas (love it; some of us like to use preview in InDesign. Some like regular view. This is a happy medium). Bad No padding in a text frame (I didn't see it) I didn't see a way to make a non-breaking space
  4. Hi. I posted about a potential bug in the other section, and it appears to have been now verified by a few other users. I have both AD and AP, and both appeared to be working fine. However, lately I have noticed that every once in a while (usually 10% or time or so, although sometimes far more frequently), selecting a different brush (in both personas and apps) resulted in the new brush (in the brush list) in the list hilighting (as it should), but the brush itself appears not to change (the settings don't change, and the resulting stroke is that of the previous brush). In some instances, it would take up to 4 or so clicks on the new brush in the brush list before the actual brush would change (the hilight appears to ALWAYS work each time). No trigger or pattern is apparent. Sometimes, the brushes work fine for quite a stretch, other times, it frequently fails to switch. One user in the other thread reported that it actually got worse for them, and the issue occurs on every brush switch for them. I recorded a video, showing the issue. Here's a small section of that video, showing you me switching brushes, and it not registering sometimes. AffinityDesigner_BrushSwitchIssue_Snippet.mp4 Among the users in the original thread I created, we believe that it may have something to do with bonus content... perhaps the Daub brushes, as it APPEARS it MAY have started (for me) after installing the Daub Blackbox brush set, and at least one other user believes it MAY have occured (for them) after installing the Daub Kraken set (...although, recently another user claimed they say the issue, and they had not installed any new brushes). Please refer to my original thread for more info (from other users): I'm using Win7 Pro 32gigs RAM. It seems it MAY be a Windows only thing, althogh we are not sure. So far, the Mac users don't appear to see this issue.
  5. Hi, I would like to ask if it is possible to switch the Affinity Designer Windows license to macOS, or I have to buy new one for macOS? I don't use the PC anymore only MacBook.
  6. First of all very nice job on the mobile app! There's still room for improvement, but it's by far the best iPad app in it's category. The features that I would like to see in the new version are: persistent tool selection - specifically, I do a lot of pixel art work, which means I use the pixel brush. However, every time I need to use the Selection persona, I come back to the brush tool being reset to it's default tool, the paint brush. This is quite annoying as I always have to tap 2 times just to go back to the brush I was using. If Affinity would remember I selected the pixel brush my workflow would be much improved switching personas and having personalized menus on 2-finger tap is cool, however, once I make a selection and go back to the drawing persona to move/resize/draw something I cannot access the Select menu without having to switch back to the Select persona. Most of the times I just need to deselect all, so having to tap 3 times is frustrating. I would like to have an option to deselect without switching personas. Maybe long press on the Select persona button in the toolbar gives me the Select menu without switching, maybe 2-finger tap includes some selection items as well even in the default drawing workspace. the fill color I feel should be the color that you're drawing with, not a different one. This is a standard in all drawing software and it's a logical implementation of real life painting - you use your brush to paint small areas, you dump the whole bucket of paint to fill in a large area. Having 2 active colors is nice, but the ability to switch between them and have a primary one which all tools use makes more sense than arbitrarily assigning different colors to different tools. Keep up the awesome job! Thanks! t

    View Tool

    Hello Affinity, I want to ask about Affinity Designer vers. This is problem happen when i use any tool > i press SPACE (View Tool) to move my screen view > my tool can't switch back to last tool that i use before and still at VIEW TOOL. This is a bug from Affinity Designer? I hope there is some solution about this, you are making great software so far , I'm very happy. Note: This is only happen when i use Wacom (My wacom is Intuos CTL-480). When i'm using trackpad or mouse it's still work normal. Thank You
  8. How do I create a shortcut that goes between Draw persona and Pixel persona? I added a simple 1 key keystroke and I can switch between Pixel persona and Export persona, but I want to be able to switch between Pixel and Draw. Draw is not available as a shortcut option.
  9. this is probably a minor feature that takes a lot of time to implement, but here it is. I love the "Edit in Photo/Designer" option under File, but in Windows 10, this doesn't make the other app active when the program is already launched. Can this be changed so Windows switches automatically to the other application?
  10. Hello Everyone, I bought Affinity for Mac, but have now realized that the computer that I need to install it on from my daughter only has Windows, can I somehow still download the program with my username and email? Thanks for the help!!
  11. Is there a way to put an image from perspective to orthographic view? I know there is in photoshop, you make it with the crop tool.
  12. Hi, On my Windows 10 Home Designer crashes when I open a file with a large size, eg. 60 megabytes Designer and switch to Edit in Photo. Sometimes falls to more switched round in Photo Edit, Edit in Designer etc. Sometimes Designer crashes when a different action when the project switched from Affinity Photo. My programs: - Affinity Designer for Windows 1.5.0.36 (full version after purchase) - Affinity Photo Beta for Windows 1.5.0.37 My device: - Windows 10 home - 8 GB ram - CPU i7 - Intel HD Graphics 4000 My friend who is also a full version of Designer crashes too. Below join screenshots.
  13. Hi, I'm using Affinity Designer 1.5.2.58 on Windows 10. When I export a document to PDF there is a color switch between red and blue in the background picture and in some text layers. An export to JPG is correct. If I delete all the layers except the background picture the error still occurs. An earlier version of the documnet with the same picture shows no problem when exporting to PDF. The only real difference seems to be the use of the transparency-tool. Thanks, Frank
  14. Hi everyone, I have a question, can i transfer Affinity Photo from Mac to Windows, because I purchased Affinity Photo for 50€ on my Mac, but now I'm working on a PC with Windows, so I would transfer the application, is that possible, and how does it work? Thanks! Hannes
  15. Hi, I've discover while watching a podcast, that a guy can switch from Affinity Designer to Affinity Photo from an entry in file menu. On my laptop, this menu is disabled. How could I enable it please ? Thanks for you help !
  16. Hello! I just this morning got a tip from some site about Affinity Photo. I'm tired of paying for the subscription I'm currently have with LR and PS CC. I'm importing and fixing the most of my pictures in LR. Some of them, portraits for example, I also edit in PS. LR is easy and fast but I'm feeling that I'm not using it enough to pay the subscription fees. I can buy two Affinity Photo for the same money as a year of LR + PS. Is there anyone who made the switch who had the same workflow as me? Is Affinity a good replacement if I use LR? Any tips for a good way of cataloguing my photos as LR?
  17. Greetings! I am a long time PS user and recently I am trying to switch to AP for most of my workflow. I am however still struggling with few issues so I was hoping to get some feedback here to make my work with AP easier :-) Sorry in advance for such a long list, but I don't want to spam this forum with multiple posts. 1) Is there any shortcut for Perspective tool? I am using it a lot (in PS it's Cmd+T and Cmd+click on corners). How to use Perspective tool non-destructively? So far the layer needs to be converted to pixels to use Perspective tool. I am looking for something like Smart Objects where you can easily transform dimensions without loosing any information. 2) Converting text to curves when pressing Cmd+Enter is for me not a good option. I am sooo used to this shortcut from PS that I am almost always converting the text to curves instead of just finishing text editing (which is in AP done using the Esc key where in PS it cancels the editing – is there by the way any shortcut to cancel editing in AP?). 3) Is there any tool similar to polygonal lasso tool from PS? I would like to make straight angled selections but not just rectangles. 4) Cropping with rotation on small resolution images produces jagged lines in image. Is there any way how to get rid of this?I need to perform cropping in PS to get desirable results and then to switch back to AP. 5) Is there any shortcut to reset colors to black and white? (in PS it's "D" key - it's useful when masking with brush tool) 6) Is there any easier way to pick color than to switch to brush tool (B key) and hold Alt key while dragging? (in PS it's "I" key and click) 7) How the Flood fill tool actually works on layers? So far I have found that to fill the object visible on layer I have to select the layer, then select Flood fill tool and select the color in swatches. When I select the color and click anywhere in the layer it does not do anything. 8) Is there any way how to transform selection? I know you can grow/shrink selection (Cmd+B), but I am looking for more precise way. 9) Thank you for reading this all up to this point ;-) Petr
  18. [command + `] for going forward through windows of the app, and [command + shift + `] for going backwards through them, in chronological order of use, most recent first. [option + `] for going to the most recent tab, and, then back again, obviously enough. As it would flick between two. More presses of ````` pushing through the tabs in the current window. [control + `] should go through the open tabs in the current window in sequential order according to their display in the top of the window, and [shift + control + `] would cycle back through them. All of these should bring up a HUD with their contextual content listed. So a user can use the arrow keys, any continuation of ````'ing and their mouse/stylus to select the document they want. Ideally the document/window list would have two thumbs each, one on the left being the whole document, then the name of the document, and a thumbnail on the right representative of the current view and zoom position within that document. Dreamy stuff. I'd also like a Bacon Double Cheeseburger Deluxe. And make that an extra large combo, no ice in the coke. Thanks.
  19. I'm a little confused about how Designer relates to Photo (which isn't out yet, I take it), since Designer seems to have bitmap editing. But I'm ready to toss the dice pending a little clarity on this big question: One recent Photoshop feature that I'm using heavily is Generator - I'd say it has made my life easier than any feature since they added layers! Yes, I'm that old. I wouldn't expect Designer to have the same functionality exactly and generate images from layers with ___.png names in imported Photoshop files. BUT, if I'm ready to start building new files and manually convert my legacy .psd files as needed, is there any similar kind of thing in Designer? Or if not, what's the nearest thing/easiest way to set up object or layer exports? Edit - I found the export tutorial, looks like a reasonable solution for now. I hope that Affinity considers something frictionless like Generator in the future though. Just using filename extensions (with a syntax for settings options) as Generator does is brilliant - no bouncing between multiple windows to set up export of the same object – and I know I've always got the current version of everything at all times, without having to open/find/target an "export" button. It may seem unreasonable to be dissatisfied about those "little" workflow differences, but with the projects and workflow I have, the click object, target settings window, choose multiple widgets to create settings, remember to push a button to export process will actually make me take a pretty big productivity hit compared to Generator. And surprisingly, it suddenly feels like a kind of archaic UX model by comparison, for an otherwise shiny new program. Cheers Allen
  20. I created a New View of my currently open document, and AD creates a second tabbed window in my workspace. However, when I try to invoke the standard Mac OS X Command - tilde ( ` ) keyboard equivalent to switch windows, AD doesn't respond...
