@VectorStyler Thank you for this great communication with (potential) VS users...
We know what we can expect in the short and long term. VS will be the vector drawing app that will replace all others (and all additional plugins)
I hope you will develop in the medium term a desktop publishing software associated with VS... "PageStyler" , as powerful as InDesign. It's the only Ad software I miss in my work and for my hobbyist activities.
Thanks for this roadmap !
Wouldn't hurt to have a similar indicator when the transform pivot snaps to one of the corners of a shape/bounding box when moving it,
and also when you move it back to the center.
I agree with predefined workspaces/setup themes, I'm used to that from Corel Draw.
Always had my custom defined workspace there.
Corel Draw 2020 has these Workspaces
just for inspiration
Apart from that you could always create your own
Workspace and name it where ever you want
@William-Kansepa said in Global Swatch marker:
if it's possible to change the colour of the triangle (which identifies the swatch as being Global) at the bottom right corner of a Global Swatch to white?
Yes I think this would be possible to do.
But one thing that might also help is using a bit larger list / grid in the palette: palette panel menu -> Display -> Medium Grid/List
I remember this feature from the times I worked in affinity designer and in some ways it was really helpful, especially when you needed to delete several things that were spread across the screen and not all able to easily make one selection and delete all at once.
I wonder how it would affect things if you wanted to switch away to using a different tool, would you need to learn to click off to the side to release the last auto selection or not. Would that tool direction be affected by the styles of the last direction being still active?
I might try this out in affinity some and see what it does. I also know affinity lacks some of these tools such as there path brush so it's like comparing apples to oranges right now.
@Ingolf said in Blend mode for image effects + flatten/merge:
trim option (trim to artboard) when rasterizing.
Creating a clipping shape with the artboard size for the image will work for now.
Added the trim option to the backlog.
@Boldline said in Offset Path GUI Change:
Maybe it needs to be a three choice dropdown? none- preview- low opacity
Yes, I can understand the functionality wanted from an artistic standpoint and it should be kept
How about a two checkbox option, one checkbox gives the traditional preview/no preview and a second opacity checkbox that overrides and greys out the preview checkbox ? IIRC, for the two checkboxes to indicate interaction, they should be within the same bounding box (might be wrong on that 'though).
@Boldline There is a new shortcut UI task in the backlog, but it is for after 1.2
When adding a shortcut, it should notify about the over write.
And, in the shortcuts list, clicking on the "Shortcut" column title should sort in alphabetical order of of the keys, this might help.
@William-Kansepa said in Ungroup vs Unclip:
Am assuming that you mean Ungroup will no longer unclip Clipping Groups, but can still ungroup them from normal groups?
I meant here "Ungroup All", not the basic "Ungroup"
"Ungroup All", would only ungroup a group if it is not clipped..
@b77 said in Remove selection info from the toolbar please - can be seen in the status bar:
any personal reproof should go via private chat.
Let me make this perfectly clear: no one here is going to expose me to any "personal reproof" ! Ever! Got it? Not in the forum nor in a private chat. If you can't handle dialogue or debate, then you'll have to retreat to Twitter.
Boldline is on ignore here, after he sent me several and very personal and intense private angry messages months ago, one-way communication I didn’t reply to, just blocked him to avoid the stream of messages, and therefore I am not going to discuss with him here or via chat.
Since then I have only seen his posts to the extent quotes or the forum accidentally exposed me to.
