Alarm! misshapen assets

Recommended Posts

Assets do a lot of things. Can you please be specific about the actual issue you wish to raise, referencing any specific assets you think show your issue and what your expectations are so we can look into solving the issue for you?

Yes we can. One specific asset was already referenced: The “Alarm” icon. It is not symmetrical. It is misshapen and you can recognise at least three different basic graphic faults in the screenshot. If someone (Serif) would sell this as a professional piece of design, we would not trust his software (AD).

Accuracy and professionalism are promised. Those misshapen assets and other inaccuracies exist since more than 11 ELEVEN months. To understand, is it because you want to radiate a less perfect corporate image or will the assets be corrected in 1.6?

Hi Oval

 

This may be sorted in the future but there or other aspects of development that are taking priority. If this is seen to be an issue for a lot more people than just yourself than it may be pushed up the priority list but I would expect this to be addressed in the immediate future especially as other larger and more important areas of the app are not completely perfect, you are able to manually adjust the assets though if you wish to change them for your own use.

 

Cheers

1000 days later nothing was corrected. Still line weights that should be constant but are not, non-symmetrical assets, with bumps and slings, … many inaccuracies that do not fit into a professional program and company. Serif still claims that Affinity Designer is the most precise vector graphic design software available, but Serif is not able to take 15 minutes to correct some assets.  :-(

Are you complaining about the 1.6 build, or the new 1.7 that we are working on?

They never have been corrected. “Still” means not now (checked at the date of the last post, means including the newest version). Or do you know a colleague that has corrected the assets?

An asset, whose name is "Alarm" in 1.7 beta being as rough as it is in 1.6 and 1.5. (It is easy to miss that Alarm is the asset's name not the state of the reporter)

OK, Serif communicates high quality standards but it seems that the assets never have been checked (by QM or whatever) before they were sold with(in) the app. And even 23 months after Serif said that this may be sorted in the future, nobody seemed to check which assets should be corrected or deleted. We don’t have the time to check all assets. We checked two: both are lowest quality. Full stop.

It's still the future :)

Perhaps fixing the quality of those assets simply isn't as important as other things the developers need to work on. (That's pretty much what Chris K said above, by the way, though I think he left out the word "not" when he continued and said "but I would expect this to be addressed in the immediate future".)

Thanks, but again (written in the 1st post): The assets should reflect the quality of the app. But they damage the company image.

So if Serif had no time to check before they sell, Serif could have left assets out. And again: The removal of some of the assets could be the best compromise now.

what can be done

1. Deleting them is not a big job.

2. If we get a correct launch date of APu, we would correct the assets.
