New Discovery Cool, as I was playing around with Affinity Publisher, as I was moving a picture around. I decided to move it inside the artistic text area, wow, it snaps right in place, that was cool, I moved it before the first text, now when I move the artistic text, the image moves with it. It's like using an image as a bullet. That was cool. It's the one that says Arrow Bullet. Abot the text that reads "Cool!" I masked an image onto the text. Secret Affinity Tricks.afpub
To All, As we experiment daily using Affinity Designer we all probably at some time or another run across little tricks that make using the program easier, quicker, more precise, or just more pleasurable to use. So, if you have any special tricks or shortcuts that may be of help to others just post them here under “Tricks” for all to use. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My first trick that may be helpful has to do with Rotations and Accuracy. First would be to always use the “Transform” option and set the exact Rotation you need if possible. When you do not know exactly the angle you need and are trying to rotate an object to align up with some arbitrary angle or line start by zooming in to the highest level where you can still see the object you need to rotate, leaving yourself some wiggle room, and the angle you need to match it to. Once you click and begin to drag on the rotation handle you no longer need to keep the cursor on the handle but can move it away from the center of rotation. The further you move the cursor away from the object the finer the amount of control you have over the rotation. Using this approach you can get extremely fine adjustments of the object you are rotating. Anyone else have some handy ideas? Max
