  1. Hi @Sean P Do you know if this symbol issue has been fixed yet? Thanks for your help, Sam
  2. Hi @carl123 Yes! Are those brushes the legacy brushes? https://affinityspotlight.com/article/get-legacy-affinity-brushes/ Thanks for your help, Sam
  3. Hi @MEB Why can’t this be a default setting for new projects? I have to redo a project, with over 30 art-boards, because of the 1 pixel gap problem. I’m creating vector brushes and the small pixel gap creates a line around the brushes. Thanks for your help, Sam
  4. 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
  5. 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:
  6. I'm experiencing the same problem with symbols on Windows PC, but this never happened before.
  7. 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.

  9. @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
  10. @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
  11. @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
  12. @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
  13. @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
  14. @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
  15. Here is my vote for optical kerning. Optical kerning saves so much time and effort. It makes designing more fun too.
  16. 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.
  17. @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.
  18. I'm also having problems with aligning lines of text in a bulleted list and it's very frustrating. This problem seems to only happen with 2 lines of text. I found one solution/fix by: Copy and paste large blocks (https://www.lipsum.com/) of text to simulate the perfectly aligned bulleted list from this AD tutorial video: https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/publisher/desktop/video/337313778/ Copy and paste the text you need in the 3rd line of a block of text. Make sure that the lines of text stay aligned after pasting. Delete the original text that you don't need. I hope this helps other people who are struggling with this alignment problem.
  19. Also, I want to add that I feel positive and encouraging when I can support another person's post on a forum by giving them a 'like' reaction. Other people probably feel appreciated when their post is given a 'like' reaction and supported. A positive community culture is important to foster for long term development goals.
  20. @PixelPest That's such a cute and simple heart! ♥I never even thought about creating a heart that way.
  21. I'm a newbie to the AD forum and am enjoying the positive and helpful community. I was wondering why I get this message when trying to like someone's post on a forum, "Sorry, you cannot add any more reactions today."? I think it's important for the community, but most importantly the AD developers to know whose opinions people support the most... kind of like a democratic process to understand what the majority of users want. Customer feedback is very valuable because it helps developers to know what features to change and improve upon. Vectornator, another vector software program, has an interesting feedback system for customers that the AD developers might want to look at. https://feedback.vectornator.io/ Thanks for your help.
  22. Another solution, for the heart shape, is to snap each node handle to a grid intersection to make it precisely symmetrical on both sides. This is how I got the node handles to snap to a grid intersection: 1. Turn on Snapping, preset: Object Creation. 2. Turn on 'Snap to grid' in the preset snapping menu. 3. Turn on 'Align handle positions using snapping options' in the context icon toolbar at the top. 4. Move anchor handle point to a grid intersection and it snaps to it.
  23. It looks like this feature has already been implemented. THANK YOU! This helps me with symmetrical object creation and node joining. After playing around I finally discovered how to do it because it wasn't clear and simple. This is how I got the node handles to snap to a grid intersection: 1. Turn on Snapping, preset: Object Creation. 2. Turn on 'Snap to grid' in the preset snapping menu. 3. Turn on 'Align handle positions using snapping options' in the context icon toolbar at the top. 4. Move anchor handle point to a grid intersection and it snaps to it.
  24. @telemax Thank you for the advice. It's sometimes difficult for me to find the right balance between the quality and size of the video file. Practice will help me though.
