  1. My wacom doesn't have the option to deactivate windows ink. Likely because the last and final driver update was in 2015. But I have been told by customer support that my model of tablet is a common one among affinity users and often works fine. It works fine in Publisher and so far only gives me trouble in Designer ... for whatever reason.
  2. I saw another video about that from a guy who uses Adobe and he said that if you disable in the wacom settings like that, you lose the pen pressure sensitivity of your stylus. He then went on to explain how to manipulate Photoshop to help solve this, but since this is not an Adobe software, I didn't look into his explanation but went with the one I posted above. This is the video of the guy saying simply disabling in the wacom setting causes other problems: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nL10xGIA_s
  3. Unfortunately no. I used this as a manual to disable Windows Ink: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBKZbMIkb0M
  4. That sounds confusing, but I will just switch to changing applications via mouse click on the taskbar then. I forgot to mention another issue with the stylus, too: the hand tool (h or spacebar) doesn't work either with the stylus.This is also an issue I only have in Designer. Thanks for the quick response. I love Affinity and am looking forward to discovering what developments are coming up in the future!
  5. I also have issues with my Wacom Bamboo CTH-470. According to customer Service, lots of Affinity users have that tablet and it is supposed to work fine. My issues are that a lot of the time, the freehand drawing doesn't work. All it does is create a straight line between the starting and end point of drawing. But sometimes it works for a short moment. This happens when I use stylus and tablet. Whenever I use the mouse, freehand always works fine parallel to the stylus + tablet not working in Affinity Designer. I have been using this tablet for years in the Adobe programs and never once had any issue with it. It works fine in all other software. The driver software, which got its final update in 2015 is updated. This seems to be an issue mostly in Designer. While the freehand drawing malfunctions there, it works fine in Publisher. Another issue I have in Designer is with brushes changing to a completely different brush when I use the keyboard shortcut to change size. I can only adjust brush size in the brushes' advanced settings. So, from where I'm sitting, it looks like Affinity still has a few significant bugs that don't exist in other software. But, I do have to say that despite that it is absolutely a fantastic alternative to the outrageously priced Adobe equivalents. I do so wish they would add the function for vectorizing pixel images, though. I know about the vectorizing alternatives, but it's a drawback in terms of workflow.
  6. Your current profile image looks as though a good amount of vectorising went into the making of it. What program did you use?
  7. Oh wow. I have been trying out all sorts of functions and completely forgot that I had done that. Thanks!!!
  8. I added the .afpub But what if I do want all text in the document to align to the grid? Also, I haven't heard of the baseline grid affecting visibility of an item. But then I haven't yet heard a lot of things because I am just an advanced beginner. I did check if the "ignore baseline Grid" setting would do the trick and it had no effect. I have a little bit of experience with InDesign & Co. and I have only started using Affinity last Friday. I'm completely thrilled with this software but still at a loss about some of the features. I don't know if this is relevant, but it is a master page. From what I know, that shouldn't matter though.
  9. I created a "torn paper" object in Designer, inserted it into my Publisher file via copy+paste. I want the text field, which is the top layer, to appear at the top of the torn paper item, but the text disappears when I drag the text field over the paper. I am still new to Affinity and my guess is that I am not yet aware of a necessary setting? Thanks in advance for helpful replies. I did check to see if I could find a similar question in the forum. Please only reply if you have a suggestion as to what I can try to make the text show.
