  1. Hi all, I just had a quick look at photo beta and it looks great! There are two features supported in Krita which I think would make fantastic additions to both photo and designer: 1: Tile mode (or "wrapping" mode). In this mode you can see the image/canvas repeated at least once beyond each edge and corner, and you can just draw off the edge and the drawing automatically wraps around to the other side. Ideally most of the built in effects and filters would also work properly with tiled mode, such as blurs, bevels, shadows, etc. This would be superb for making or working with seamlessly tiled backgrounds and game textures. 2: Infinite canvas. When you find yourself running out of space at one edge of the canvas, this feature would make it very easy to extend the canvas just in that direction. Cheers, Jules
  2. I have reported this a couple of times earlier but could not find my old posts. The wrapping feature has improved but I think there is still error in "Ignore Text Wrapping" feature (Beta and current release version). As far as I have understood correctly, text wrapping should happen using the following logic (imitating behavior of InDesign): 1) If graphic object has been set to wrap, it always wraps text around it, no matter what is the z-order of the object in relation to the text frame being wrapped. It wraps text even if the object is hidden (as in InDesign). (Orange ellipse wraps text in the green text frame.) 2) If two text frames overlap but only one of them has text wrapping set, the text frame will wrap text in the frame that does not have text wrapping set, disregarding the z-order of the text frames. (Text in green frame is wrapped by the orange text frame.) 3) If two text frames both have text wrapping set, the object that is higher in z-order will wrap text in the frame that is lower is z-order. (Blue text frame wraps text in the orange text frame.) 4) If text frame has "Ignore Text Wrapping" property turned off, text in that text frame should not wrap. (Text in the yellow text frame.) If the InDesign behavior is mimicked, the setting should not affect in any way to the text frame's own wrapping properties (i.e., the way the text frame itself wraps text in other text frames). As it has been implemented now, the setting does change the text frame's own wrapping properties, which does not make sense, at all. The question is, why does the yellow text frame below (which has text wrapping set on) wrap text in the orange text frame? The yellow text frame is lower in z-order than the orange text frame, and both text frames have text wrapping turned on, so the text in the orange frame that is higher in z-order, should not be wrapped by the yellow text frame. If "Ignore Text Wrapping" is turned off from the yellow frame, the yellow text frame (correctly) no longer wraps the text in the orange text frame (but instead the orange text frame now wraps the text in yellow text frame). Attached is a Publisher file (note: saved in latest Beta version) so it is easy to test the behavior by toggling the "Ignore Text Wrapping" setting of the yellow text frame. wrapping_beta.afpub
  3. Hello, I wont to have a sqare reaching in the corner of a text filed. So the text in the fileld should not run into the Square. Thats works so fare with the test wrapping settings. But now I want to place the page number into this square. this smaller textfield should lay on the square. This textfield is also effected by the text wrapping of the square. Is there a possibility to block the Textwrapping for this field? Thanks for your help! Roland
  4. Im working on a document in APub Beta on macOS 10.12.6 (16G2016). If I use floating text over 40 pages with multiple text frames and insert some pictures and graphics with custom wrappings APub slows down extremely and the fan of my iMac27 (4 GHz Intel Core i7, 32 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, AMD Radeon R9 M295X 4096 MB) start to spin like crazy even if I only scroll. It seems to be caused by rendering the whole document on every event (scrolling, inserting text, etc.) I redesigned the document and use only text frames without floating from one page to the next. And behold... no time consuming rendering. Everything works fine. The slow document with floating text is appr. 2.2 MB the one that works fine is appr. 700 kB. All images/graphics are linked and not embedded. CPU in macs Activity Monitor App sometimes reaches over 500%. Another side effect is the slow rendering of the previews in the pages panels. Rendering-Problem.mp4 Any ideas how to use floating text without this side effect???
  5. Hi – I wonder if there is any way in Affinity Designer and/or Photo of doing the following. Imagine a can, say like a can of paint. I can draw a can that looks fairly 3D-ish, and/or use a photo of an actual can and overlay something. I then have a whole range of 2D labels, basically rectangles with text and logos on, that I want to paste over the can graphic (or can photo) in such a way that it looks distorted, like it’s actually wrapped around the can, like a real label would. I have played about with Mesh Warp and Perspective in Photo for ages, but can’t get anything that looks any good, and I can’t find anything in Designer that seems to do anything like this. I’ve read on the web that Photoshop does have some very limited 3D capabilities, and indeed I’ve spoken to someone who said they’ve done something like this in Photoshop (allegedly), but they could not give me any details (and I don’t have Photoshop anyway). Any suggestions what I could do in Designer/Photo?
  6. Hi all, I have just recently come to realise that designer does not include a wrap feature which blows my mind. I can't believe that something so basic has been left out. I mean, I know that this is primarily an illustration program but DrawPlus certainly had the ability to wrap text around an object. Anyway, as a workaround I created a box (see screenshot attached) I then skewed it and then filled it with some text. As you see, the text is now sloping. Is there a way to make this not be the case? I just want to fill it with text that is normal and upright. Thanks very much for any help. Phil
  7. Affinity Designer doesn't arrange text correctly which contains English words and Han characters. The line-breaking after word Pattern is not expected. Here is what I found through my observation: windows 7 x64 Affinity Designer beta
