  1. Although I can't answer your question, are the two attachments of any help? Regarding getting rid of unnecessary white space, one suggestion is to clipcopy what you need to keep and from the File menu, select New from Clipboard. I use it quite a lot. smiley.svg smiley.afdesign
  2. I don't know if the attachment helps the discussion or maybe helps someone else looking for a sine wave. Its origin is from CAD several years ago. sine.afdesign
  3. I've been trying different things and am having problems such as others have reported, as well as not being able to subtract at all. One thing I've noticed is that the shape of the letters affects the outcome. For example, in the picture below when the subtracting rectangle crosses the straight part of the letter, all seems well. It's when it crosses a curved section where multiple nodes make up the letter shape that the problem arises.
  4. To anto. Thanks. I don't say there isn't a problem since there obviously is, as others have shown. It's just that I'm not getting the same results as some of the others.
  5. To N.P.M. Basically, it's horses for courses. I use backgrounds which usually have some content and so a fill layer wouldn't be much use to me. Also, I've no particular use for multiple documents of different sizes. At least mikeill now has a few options to choose from.
  6. I'm new to Fill Layers. For those who don't have Photo but only Designer, will the Designer template below work? fill layer.aftemplate
  7. Designer 2.03, Windows 10. Subtract seems to work for me with the exception that the result has no fill or stroke. With the result selected, I can select a fill and/or stroke to apply.
  8. To mikeill. As N.P.M. says, just draw a rectangle on top of your document, drag it to the bottom of the Layers panel (or Layer menu > Arrange > Move to back) and use that as your background. One suggestion is to lock the Background.
  9. I'd overlooked the 'background' bit of the question. A rectangle would probably be the best solution (on its own layer if needs be).
  10. Although it doesn't do exactly what's asked for, one step along the way is to select one of the snap options, as below...
  11. I didn't think there was a simpler or more intuitive means of doing what's required than using one of the shape tools, as suggested above. All I would add is to consider using the 'Scale with object' option if the outline shape is to be copied and pasted to a larger or smaller photo.
  12. The general procedure was this: Import original picture and lock its layer. Use ruler guides to locate the centre of the sun. Draw sun then hide its layer. Star tool for small star using Ctrl (draw from centre) and Shift (constrain). Hide its layer. Star tool for large star using Ctrl (draw from centre) and Shift (constrain). Rotate large star about its centre. Hide its layer. Draw rectangle, make copies and rotate copies about their centre. Show each object in turn and use the colour picker tool to colour it from the original picture. Arrange the front to back order of the items from the layers panel. Alternatively Use the attachment below 😉. sunburst.afdesign
  13. Yes, I've noticed that. If you click on the down arrow on something like Opacity, the sliding scale underneath appears and remains visible. With the warp Value down arrow, it doesn't. In the demo. video it seems to behave as expected and remains visible when the mouse pointer moves away from the sliding scale.
  14. I don't know but something I've found useful is to create a group comprising a circle and two lines and save it as an asset. Then to position it and others as required, instead of guide lines, and snap to their centres as shown below...
  15. This what I did earlier. First, find the location of the Fonts.xml file for version 1. Here's where mine was: V1 = C:\Users\ME\AppData\Roaming\Affinity\Designer\1.0\Settings\Fonts.xml Next, copy the font names from the file Fonts.xml, as highlighted in the picture below. Then find the location of the version 2 Fonts.xml file. Here's where mine was: V2 = C:\Users\ME\.affinity\Designer\2.0\Settings\Fonts.xml Finally, paste the copied font names into the similar location in the version two Fonts.xml file.
  16. Not on Firefox, Dan. I've tried Google and all seems well. This reply is on Google. At least I now have the option to reply. Thanks for your help.
  17. Would it be useful to have a topic indicating where various settings are stored? For example, I've tried importing my Favourite fonts (Fonts.xml) and the relative locations differ between V1 and V2, as shown below... V1 = C:\Users\ME\AppData\Roaming\Affinity\Designer\1.0\Settings\Fonts.xml V2 = C:\Users\ME\.affinity\Designer\2.0\Settings\Fonts.xml I seem to have managed it - time will tell.
  18. Thanks to G13RL and Bruce. The following also seems to work: Draw a rectangle around the intended PNG image. Remove the fill and stroke from the rectangle. Select the intended image and rectangle and export both as a PNG (Area: Selection Only). Use the exported PNG for the brush. See below...
