I have worked during one day to test or to evaluate the possibilities of Affinity Designer.


First : no crash during this (very long) session : Good job !


But, I have some difficulties :

- I don't found the posiibility to copy/paste a color (and only the color) or to copy/paste an effect. It's... laborious. :-)


- Some bahavior are strange : when I resize on object, I use the Shift key to respect the ratio. When I resize a text, I use the Shift key NOT TO respect the ratio.


- I don't find the possibility to align an object to an other one without moving the second one. I don't success what I want to do.


- when I type a precise value in an input field (for sizing an object for example), if touch the top of my mouse : the value is changed !!! It's very very boring ;-)



Well done, it's sorme ergonomic details. Of course, I appreciate that coulod be solve... yesterday ;-)

Thank you for this very powerful product.


Thank's for your help

Hello Kleduts,

Welcome to Affinity Forums.


1- It's not possible to copy and paste a color or an effect individually to another object in this first version yet. As a workaround you can use the color picker to pick the color from an object and apply it to another;


2- This is by design and works like this: objects that have an inherent ratio/proportion like images or text (where most of the time you don't want to distort them) scale naturally without the need to press shift. Objects that don't have a pre-defined ratio/proportion like shapes, require that you press shift to keep their proportions;


3- This was requested a couple of times already but wasn't implemented yet;


4- This is by design. This allows you to fill/change values with the mouse, dragging in up or down to increase/decrease the value.

Hi Meb,


Thank's for your reply.


1- ok

2- I was suprised by this behavior. I understand the reason. It's just a feedback.

3- ok

4- Why don't try to "detect" the behhavior of the user. For example : if he changes the value with the keyboard, he can't change it again with the mouse before 1 second.


Best regads
