  1. I just named it that, becaus thats what it looked like, using warm colors.
  2. Cool, thanks. Just checking. Found another way to do it, Create a solid shape using a pencil tool that surrounds another object. Left-Click on the shape, then Right-click on the solid shape & convert it to text frame. Resize the fonts to fit in the shaped text frame. Then type anything. You can notice that I created a shape around the waterdrop, I converted it to text frame.
  3. Amazing: Thanks for the update, I enjoy using it alot.
  4. Cool, i've been curious of what miter is? I noticed it in the settings.
  5. Most definitly love using the mask method, it's so easy to use in Affinity, I even used it to decorate Art Text.
  6. Remember the famous blue dot from Windows 3? I recreated it in Affinity Photo.. I created a blue rectangle for the background of the image. I used rectangles to create these 4 shapes the image had. I lined them up accordingly where each corners touch each other. Then I rasterized the image to flatten it, & exported as PNG.
  7. I agree. Right now, I've been manually counting the words in my document that I create in Publisher, Designer, Photo & I rename the layer to number of words that I counted "402 words" for that individual layer for example.
  8. Oh, Ok. Thanks for letting me know. One way around is first create the text on a curve in Affinity Designer, left-click on it to select it, then right-click on it to get a context menu, the choose copy. Then open up Affinity Photo, choose a new file. Then right-click on the canvas "Or work area" to get a context menu, then choose paste.
  9. To create path text: Select a previously drawn line, curve or shape. From the Tools panel, select the Artistic Text Tool. Do one of the following: For text running outside a shape or above a line: Click the cursor outside (or above) the object's outline. The cursor will change to indicate path text will be created. For text running inside a shape or below a line (right to left): Click the cursor inside (or below) the object's outline. Click or drag on the page for a default or custom 'sized' text size, respectively. The line, curve or shape is converted to a path ready for accommodating text. Do one of the following: Type your text. Paste previously copied text. From the File menu, select Place. In the pop-up dialog, navigate to and select a file, and click Open. Alternatively, select a previously drawn line, curve or shape and then, from the Layer menu, select Convert to Text Path. To modify the flow of path text: With the path text selected, do one of the following: Drag one or more path text handles. On the context toolbar, set Baseline to adjust distance of text baseline from path. On the context toolbar, click Reverse Text Path.
  10. Cool, I created this cool Spirograph called Spring Fever.
  11. Hi, been wondering where the text wrap option went to in Affinity Designer? I cannot find it anywhere.. I cannot seem to wrap text around an object..
  12. Cool 😉 Thanks for the new updates, It rocks 😁
  13. Cool, I did a cool Spirograph using Affinity Designer Warm & Bright.afdesign
  14. Usually whenever I add something to a document, or when I modify it, I save it right away. That way I don't forget to save it.. Like for example I add an image to a document, then I go to >File >Save I usually do this per change
  15. I actually do both; News information. Checking with Windows Store.
  16. Cool, did a photo manipulation in Affinity Photo. It's a huge bowl in the middle of a hallway. I used the following; Perspective mesh on the bookshelves on the wall. Pasted the bowl image on a different layer. Used color curves to match the hallway atmosphere. added the shadow on the bowl to match the lighting. I drew the square hole in the ground by hand.
  17. Cool, been waiting for lots of new features & fixes, especially the ones mentioned in this post. I have the Windows Store Version, everyday I check for updates, looking forward for version 2.0.
  18. What I usually do in this situation is that I resize the photo manually by clicking on the photo, then I click-n-holding one of the white boxes on each corner of the photo, then I resize it to fit inside one of the square area's in the template.
  19. I made almost 200 in my Affinity Publisher, I have it all in a category called "My Creations" Individual Asset Folders that have illustrations can be exported. Click on assets tab, then click on the hamburger symbol, then select "Export Assets.." then choose a location to save the file to. Then later on they can be imported. That's how I save all my assets. Here's a snapshot demo;
  20. A particular font has to be installed for it to work.. I found the font on 1001 free fonts website; Sans Variable Roman >Click on the Download link. >Save As. >Goto the directory the font was downloaded. >Right-click on the font. >Select "Install for all users".
  21. Tap the double vertical lines || , while holding it down, you can move the dock.
