I did clear the temporary files a few days ago and tried clearing Browsing history day before yesterday but didn't solve the issues. However, no issues today. I got on first attempt and posted.. ...yaay! lol

Thanks for the suggestions. :)

Terrible...death toll is even higher according to todays news. Very sad. According to reports, Mr Trump initially blamed the Forest Commissioners for allowing the fires to get out of hand i.e. not maintaining the forests...well that was until he visited the areas and saw for himself the seriousness of the situation and became contritious….always shuts the door after the horse has bolted!

Just one hmmmmm.  As Elizabeth Barrett Browning said...." How do I love thee, let me count the ways".  Well, I guess for me the one feature I use most is the easy ability to change/remove/adjust, recolor... a certain element within a character.  Since each is on it's own layer I can go back months later and easily find and remove the mouth and change it from a frown to a grin or vice versa for instance.  I could do that in my other programs but not as easily.  I can also readjust nodes within to get an entirely different look to a shape. Of course , if a pixel layer is there I can't do much with that except remove it entirely and then do another.....but that too is very easy to do, and I use that many, many times.

THAT is a hard question to answer!

When we used PI I'd problems with the vector and changing the shapes. Not any more, AD is very intuitive. You mention clipping and that is also a favorite.
And so we can go on for each tool.

I just can't answer your question!  :lol02:

Now that we've been using AD for well over a year (almost two counting the beta), we've become pretty familiar with the vector side and have learned to do so many different things!

So, the question is....   What is your favorite feature/took in Affinity Designer?  Just name ONE.  Let's see what everyone likes about AD!!

I'll go first.  My favorite feature is one that I've never had in any other program - and that is CLIPPING!!!!      :dancegirl: :dancegirl:

She is growing faster than I can take pictures!!  She has doubled in size and weight and in impishness!!   She's only 4.5 months old and has already lost her baby look.  I don't think she will grow much more though.  According to everything I've read, her breed will grow really fast in the first 4 months, then slow down and reach their full adult size around 6 months.

Me either!!!     This is the latest news: 

The blaze that began on Nov. 8 all but razed the town of Paradise, population 27,000, and heavily damaged the outlying communities of Magalia and Concow. It destroyed more than 9,800 homes and, at its height, displaced 52,000 people. The cause of the fire was not immediately known. The blaze was said to be 50 percent contained.

Only 50% contained!!   That means, it's got a long way to go before people are safe.   I have to put some of the blame on our governor.  There is tons of dry brush in between the trees and many dead trees in the forests that should have been removed.  Dry brush can create one heck of a fire.  People wanted to clean it out and sent a bill to the governor to mandate that the forest floor and dead trees to be removed.  However, the governor refused to sign it.   Years of dead brush.    He stood on the side of the environmentalists who argued that the dry brush and such was natural and should not be disturbed.  Now we see the results.

So many people dead - so many people who lost everything they had, many were not insured.  It's hard to start over when you have nothing but the clothing on your back, which was the case for many.

The things they needed most in the shelters were warm socks, under ware, pajamas, and hygiene products.  People have been donating a lot but they still need a lot more.
