Affinity Designer Customer Beta (1.7.0.7)

Recommended Posts

There is a bit of a momentary jaggedness when typing on a font in the Metal GPU mode. This goes away after a second or two.  I don't know if anyone is experiencing the same but I fixed by switching to OpenGL.

The pinch zoom on my trackpad (MacBook Pro mid 2018, 13", Mojave 10.14.2) seems to stop working frequently when using Affinity Designer. Sometimes I can re-enable it by de-activating/activating it in systems preferences, but often I need to put the laptop to sleep for it to work again. Is anyone else experiencing this issue, too?

@MattP

One question that came to my mind, is the Appearance Panel planned to work with text? I didn't try it until now (on Windows), and they don play together.

Best regards!

Thanks, Matt, I was just curious about it.

Have a great day. :)

I just want to say that I am so happy to have that sculpt option in Designer. Thank you so much for adding that.

Hey guys,

what happened to the construction mode?
I was very happy that these options were implemented, but I can't find them in the current beta.
Has the mode been moved to a new category or has development been paused or even cancelled?

That would be a shame, because it already looked very promising. :37_disappointed:

Greetings

From @MattP's Affinity Designer Customer Beta (1.7.0.6) OP:

Temporarily remove the 'construction mode' button in Node and Pen tools.. construction mode will return in a different form in the future!

and in a later reply:

We’re definitely looking at a future version for construction stuff - we have a better plan so want time to do it right...

Ah, thanks for the citations, R C-R.

Sorry for the question, I must have skipped that in my searching earlier.
I really hope these options come sooner rather than later - they are extremely helpful to me! :5_smiley:

Cheers

I have no idea what to expect with the construction tools, but my guess is that the wait will be worth it.

Edit:

I was meaning to ask a question, and I forgot. Is there a way to convert my preference from Designer 1.6 to this beta (styles, brushes, custom keyboard shortcuts, etc?)

yes this happens to me often.  Is this an Affinity issue? I thought it might have been a Mac firmware issue.

Hi Affinity, I can't select fonts from left pane drop down list in this latest beta. I am able to scroll down the list and select a font, but then the font reverts to Arial once I start typing. The only way I can ultimately select the font is first typing in Arial and then selecting the type and then going back to the font list and selecting again.  The MAS version doesn't have this issue.
