  1. I just realised that it seems to be when I use my Wacom Tablet. Using a mouse and the modifier keys is fine, but when I use the same actions with my Wacom tablet they just don't work. So it could be a bug.

    Ford Capri Mk3

    Thanks VectorVonDoom. I was toying with Window reflections but in the end I left it fairly simple. I have to say your E Type illustration is amazing. Do you use a high res photo's as a reference base? I had only basic reference material as it was a surprise for my father so I couldn't spend the day at his house getting all the finer details I needed. You're right about the layering. I find it's the easiest way to make selections. I had to treat it a bit like how I work in illustrator, which is naming everything, grouping and layering each section. I used to work in freehand back in the day and you never had to worry about layering, it was much easier and faster, but the end results were much more 'vector', which is what I'm used to. So I think there's going to be a bit of a learning curve as this program can give you so much more. My next personal project is my friend's Mk 1 Mini. I think with that I will spend more time getting the references right so I can get it as accurate as I can. Cheers.

    Ford Capri Mk3

    Hi, So this was my first project using Affinity Designer. I wanted to set myself something reasonably complicated otherwise I wouldn't learn anything. I tried not to follow any tutorials I just wanted to see how easy it was to just jump in and give it a go. This is a fairly close replica of my father's actual Ford Capri Mk3. I surprised him with a framed copy of it. Over all it took around 10 hours I think. Cheers.
  4. Hi Stokerg, Thanks for the tip. It seems to have corrected itself when I opened it up this morning. Bit weird. But if it happens again I will know where to look. It's a cool program, still getting my head around the inherent quirks/differences of the program (like all programs) Definitely prefer it to Adobe Frustrator and it works more like the classic Macromedia Freehand which is my all time favourite but I haven't been able to use that for a long time now. I do like that Designer can open my old freehand files as well. Cheers.
  5. Working in Mac OSX. Finding today that the modifier keys aren't working. Such as: Multiple selecting via the shift key. Command (or option, can't remember off hand) duplicate drag. Restarted, no luck, new update, same issue. I'm still getting used to this program so I'm wondering if there's something I'm missing. just weird and annoying.
