  1. Hello, I've been reorganizing my vector brushes on Affinity Designer and came across an issue. What are the category names of the default Affinity Designer vector brushes? I have too many brush categories, which caused me to lose track of the Affinity Designer vector brushes. It would have been helpful if Affinity had labeled them as AD brushes, for organizational purposes. I found a link to the legacy Affinity Designer brushes, but not to the current default Affinity Designer brush category list. https://affinityspotlight.com/article/get-legacy-affinity-brushes/ Thanks for your help, Sam
  2. Hello, I'm really enjoying Affinity Designer so far. There are so many convenient features to help make vector illustration more fun and efficient. I recently discovered symbol bugs on Affinity Designer for Windows PC. The bugs never occurred before the last AD software update. After duplicating a symbol, I'm unable to arrange the symbols independently using the 'Move to Back' function. The duplicated symbols move together, even when only one is selected, while using the 'Move to Back' function. I also can't disable visibility without them all being turned on or off simultaneously. A macOS user recently had a similar problem, from this thread:
  3. I'm experiencing the same problem with symbols on Windows PC, but this never happened before.
  4. Any news about global styles being included in a future version of AD? I would appreciate a global styles option, if it's possible. As an illustrator of picture books, this option would save me a lot of time and effort.

  6. @Remi McGill Audiokinetic Hi Remi, I just tried to replicate what you were doing in your video. It looks like the bug is now gone from Affinity Designer and it works! I was informed by a staff member that the developers have been working to improve symbols for us. There was a recent, new release of Affinity Designer that may have these improvements implemented now. Take care and have a good day, Sam
  7. @Lee DHi Lee, Thanks for your help. That's good to know that there may be some possible fixes for nested symbols. Nested symbols, and symbols in general, are life savers when designing with vectors! Take care and have a good day, Sam
  8. @ChrisSmereHi Chris, I like the idea of having a reset or resynchronize function for nested symbols! It would save a lot of time and energy creating illustrations and other vector designs. Take care and have a good day, Sam
  9. @Gabe Hi Gabe, Thanks for your help. I'm still confused about nesting symbols. Are there a lot of bugs in Affinity Designer that prevent someone from using nested symbols? I need to know this in order to avoid using nested symbols in future projects. I just thought that I may be doing something wrong when I'm editing the symbols to cause them to become unsynced. Take care and have a good day, Sam
  10. @MikeW Hi Mike, Thanks for your help. I will try to do what you suggested next time I have a bullet list in a project. Take care and have a good day, Sam
  11. @walt.farrell Hi Walt, Thanks for your help. I didn't know that you could create a separate text style just for bullets. Recently, I watched this great Affinity Publisher tutorial about bullets and numbering here: https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/publisher/desktop/video/337313778 Take care and have a good day, Sam
  12. @Dan C Hi Dan, Thank you for your reply and helping me to understand why I can't give more reactions to Affinity members' posts. Spammers are annoying! I never thought about how they could be a problem before you mentioned it. Have a good day and take care, Sam
  13. Here is my vote for optical kerning. Optical kerning saves so much time and effort. It makes designing more fun too.
  14. I'm confused because some users claim that nesting symbols is possible with Affinity Designer while others claim that there are many bugs associated with nesting symbols. I also have had many problems with nesting symbols not syncing with each other because the syncing breaks for some reason. Sometimes, some of the symbols disappear within the nested symbol.
  15. @Gabe Why is it, "not a good practice to have symbols within symbols?" Is nesting symbols possible with Affinity Designer on Windows desktop? I'm confused because some users claim that nesting symbols is possible with Affinity Designer while others claim that there are many bugs associated with nesting symbols. I also have had many problems with nesting symbols not syncing with each other because the syncing breaks for some reason. Sometimes, some of the symbols disappear within the nested symbol.
