Feedback on new "Select Same" & "Select Object" tools

Recommended Posts

Feedback 1: Add "all text" option

The next "select object" tools are awesome. However, under "select object" there is an option of:

  • Art text
  • Frame Text
  • Path text

It would be good if there was an option for "all text". The reason is that imported Ai documents often have text rendered as both art text and frame text. So trying to select them all at the same time can be fiddly.

Having an "all text" option would make things more straight forward.

Feedback 2: Add Options to Publisher

Please could you add the "Select Same" & "Select Object" to Publisher (and maybe even Photo as well).  It would be very handy especially when using automation software (such as Keyboard Maestro) to work on large documents. I recently had a project where I needed to select all the text on a page (but not the images) on a 160 page document, so something like this would have been perfect.

The Adobe apps allow for scripting, which Affinity does not, so anything that makes Affinity more accessible to automation software would be great (especially as Automation software is more user friendly than scripting)

I know studio link can be used to access this functionality, but it would be so much more easier if it was in Publisher natively.
