Custom presets for the Artboard tool

Recommended Posts

There already are templates (Iphone, Apple, Nexus, etc.) but we need the option to add our custom ones so we can work faster and so you can make Affinity Designer better software for designers.

Yes, I know you can create an artboard from the new document settings, but with that I would have to maybe create new documents over and over so I can have custom specific sizes for artboards, when it could be easier and faster with and option in the context tool bar.

For example, I design mostly for instagram sizes (and I'm pretty sure a LOT of people using Designer do) and for portrait size pictures I would be nice to be able to create 4 : 5 artboards every time someone needs to design in that size.

Something like the crop tool's context tool bar options in Affinity Photo but for the artboard tool is what I have in mind as a suggestion.

Thank you.

Hi 99Combo,

I also use AF for social medias. In my case I created an artboard template with everything I usually like background, text, logo, etc... then all you need to do is create an Asset. If you are a freak like myself, you would find very interesting create a new category for each client... 

After your artboard/asset is created, all you need to do is create any AF document with 72DPI/RGB and then drag our artboard into the document.

I hope it helps!

Yes, either saving a template .afdesign document, or saving a template Artboard as an Asset, or both, are good ideas for solving that problem.
