Rearrange Guidelines on document size change

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

is it possible to rearrange the guides (lines/Hilfslinien in german) based on the point of resizement, when changing the documents dimensions?

Would be very helpful to add more size to the top.

 

Cheers

Hi affinitani,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Are you using Affinity Photo or Designer?

I'm not sure i understood you question correctly but in Affinity Photo, Document ▸ Resize Canvas dialog you have an anchor matrix to choose the reference point used to extend the document from.

Designer offers a similar control in Document ▸ Setup, Dimensions tab. Is this that you are looking for?

HI,

 

sorry for the incomplete question. I am using Affinity Photo.

When i use the Resize Canvas dialog with the anchor matrix everything works fine in terms of the canvas size. What i would expect is that even the Guides will change their position based on the recalculation of the canvas.

Let's say we have a horizontal guide at the y position of 10. Now we are increasing the document size times two from the center anchor. Result -> The guide is still at position 10.

In terms of having a lot of guides there is also no possibility to select all of them and readjust. Or am i worng?

 

Thanks.

Hi affinitani,

Thanks for the details. Although you can use percentages to set guides positions they don't adjust their position on canvas when you resize it and  simply update the percentage value in reference to the new canvas dimensions, so no, there's no way for them to adjust dynamically to canvas changes. Also no for the second question. There will be improvements to guides in future updates/versions although at the moment i don't know if they cover these cases.
