    Love it!!!
  2. Thanks MEB, that's great news!!!
  3. I agree, it is very misleading to call these vector brushes. Vectors are resolution free that can be used at any size without lost of quality. This makes vector brushes in AD obsolete in most cases. Not good if you are running an illustration or graphics company that requires real vector brushes to achieve many looks. I don't think AD vector brushes should be called "VECTOR BRUSHES" if the vector capabilities are not there when it comes to independent resolution at any size. That's what VECTOR is. This is very disappointing
  4. Thanks for the reply! That’s what I was afraid of. So most vector brushes are for lower end work that don’t require printing at large sizes? Why even bother with them, unless you are printing small or the web? I was under the impression that vector work was supposed to be math based and look good at any size. Is this not true?
  5. I noticed that when exporting a file that uses ALL vector brushes, to open in another vector app or just to enlarge the artwork to any size, some vector brushes look pixelated. They seem to get rasterized. I tried exporting as eps, svg, and pdf. i am guessing these brushes where made with bitmap images so it doesn’t maintain the vector math flexibility. is there a vector brush set available that emulates pencils, charcoal, and shading looks that stays vector on export to maintain the high quality vector artwork when opened in other vector apps or just using it at larger sizes? Not necessarily as brushes, but as scalable quality vector art.  thanks!

  8. Thanks for posting this info. Unfortunately, that seems like a lot of work. i found a away around it for now by using Clip Studio Paint as my PSD editor. My goal is to eventually switch 100% to Affinity Photo when this gets fixed. If Clip Studio Paint works well, there is hope for Affinity Photo. cheers!
  9. Where can I find the alpha version for Mac? Is it available for testing?
  10. DrawPlus is good, but it’s not available for Mac computers.
  11. How good is it? Is it safe to install? On the website it show the latest version at "potrace-1.15.mac" and it's old. Here: http://potrace.sourceforge.net/#downloading Where did the Potrace_GUI_0.1.dmg version come from?
  12. Thanks. I'll keep an eye for the updates.
  13. Thanks for the reply Sean. This is very disappointing. I was really hoping to brake away from Adobe products. i hope this gets resolved soon. Do I need. To summit or post this somewhere else to expedite the fixing?
  14. Greetings, I wonder if you can help me with an Affinity Photo or Designer issue with the PSD file format. I have the need to have other apps to open PSD files when called for an external editor to make changes and save. I tested the settings by making Affinity Photo and then Affinity Designer as my external editor of choice, but the PSD “layers content” keeps getting deleted when I save the file from within Affinity Photo or Designer. Take this one example with an animation app that I use to create characters with PSD file layers. I have to use the PSD format so that the app updates my characters properly. The app is called “Cartoon Animator 4”. WITH PHOTOSHOP CS6 When the animation app opens the PSD file in Photoshop CS6, all layers remain intact after my updates to the file and I hit save. When the PSD file gets updated in my animation app, all layers are there including my changes. Everything looks very good as it’s supposed to, since all I am doing is working with the PSD file and saving it. Nothing difficult. WITH AFFINITY APPS However, when the animation app opens the PSD file in Affinity Photo or Designer ( when I use any of these as my preferred PSD file editor ), all layers look fine when it’s opened in Photo or Designer, until I save it. When the PSD file gets updated in my animation app, all layers contents are NOT there, except for the one on top of the group. The layers content that were there got DELETED by AP or AD. Can this be a big bug in Affinity Photo and Designer with the way it handles PSD files? I am hoping it is a fixable bug. I really don’t want to go back to Adobe products. I haven’t used or opened Photoshop CS6 in two years and I thought I already made the full move to affinity products, but now, I don’t know what to think. Please see attached screenshots demonstrating what is happening. Thank you in advance for your help! Best regards, Bill
  15. Thanks! I will check my settings.
