  1. Hi guys, I like to use blend modes to experiment and get unusual looks. In the choice often tho I find myself doubting between two or more options, and end up mixing blend modes together to get just the right look. I do this by either copying the layer, or creating a symbol if I want to maintain edibility. And setting the transparencies of the layers with certain blend modes. The problem is that sometimes I find myself in a project where I want to do this for nearly every object.. and find myself in indecision because creating Symbols for everything just seems nuts, and not the right feature for it because in the project the object only is there once, just layered on top of 'itself'.. or in indecision because I every time have to decide if I need to maintain edibility for this object and thus create a Symbol... Is there a workaround for this? Otherwise maybe it could become an feature in the sense of an Effect? Just as you have a 'Color Overlay' and 'Gradient Overlay' effect (to which you can apply a Blendmode and Opacity), you can have a 'Content Overlay'/'Content Duplication' Effect. Currently in Affinity there are no effects that to can have multiple of like I believe is in Adobe software, but this would be one effect where that would be extremely useful. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks 🙂
  2. Would like to have a button or export setting to convert a slice from a a 'slice from layer' to a 'slice' and backwards Thanks!!!
  3. Okay so I need this desperately. I want to be able to isolate an item like you do with alt-clicking on a layer. But I want it to keep being isolated so I can work on that layer/group/symbol. This way I would (or should), for example isolate a symbol in a heavy document and work on it without performance lag caused by the updating of all the symbols. Now when I select a subobject of an isolated object I immediately go out of isolation mode. Should be great if this was implemented.
  4. Hi, I have this text with a centred paragraph style, but when I try remove a line, it doesn't work like it normale would. It behaves as if it is not centred. What is causing this? (Here is a file if u want to take a look: textbehav.afpub) Thanks.
  5. Haha, will think about it, but it's a private project right now. Maybe i'll release it someday. Anyways: Discovered this "Blend Ranges" is also possible on layers with "Erase" as a blend mode. That makes it even more amazing because then I can just work on the grouped objects without having to 'release the mask'.
  6. Wow guys. I found the solution. You can use this "Blend Ranges" method also directly on vector clipping masks! That makes them act just like illustrator's Transparency Masks! Amazing this, hey.
  7. Didn't know about that feature yet, but it's a great feature. Indeed; when I apply that on the mask layer (that is underneath the 'content' layer on which the Screen blend-mode is applied), I get a the whites transparent. But when I turn on my content layer with the Screen blend-mode, the 'transparent' areas tend to become more white then an original opacity on a layer would have it (with 'Normal' as a blend mode, as you see here on the right). And the upper box truly transparant boxes from the mask don't make a the object fully transparent there. Also: when I place a darker background underneath it, the content doesn't seem to mix with that black as a transparent object would. (And I want a dark color as the background for my project, but might want to change that color, so true transparency would be good) Is there maybe some crazy blend-mode trick, Photo Persona trick or something that would mimic a transparency mask right here in combinations with these things I have applied here? Or otherwise: Is this something that is being considered as a future feature? Thanks again.
  8. I did some testing with a a simplified version of what I wanted to achieve, and was able to create this, with a fairly complicated setup: But still can't figure out if there is a way to make the darker boxes (which now appear more white) transparant to the background image . Please let me know if you know a way. Here is this file: Test_Masking.afpub
  9. Hi, I am very used to using this in Illustrator and really hope this is also possible in Affinity or will be possible in the future. The 'vector masks' as well as the 'erase blend mode' seem to do only clipping and do not use the black/white values and the Transparency tool is just for gradients, as far as I can tell. Any info on this or suggestions? Thanks.
  10. Let us combine this feature request with the one linked below.. I think there is tremendous possibility here and I see how this would/should work directly in my imagination. Please contact me, Serif. I want to be involved in this. And not just as an usual user feedback. I wanted a revolt against Adobe for a long time but I am powerless on my own. Help me do something with this ambition.
  11. Hi, I was wondering if this is possible. Also curious if there is any thing on the planning for Serif to implement cell styles into Publisher, as a subset of 'format styles'. Thank you and kind regards.
  12. Okay thanks guys. I think this should be a feature tho. To be able to 'dive' into a cell the same way as you can into an object and let it have 'children' objects, mask, adjustment layers, etc. The functionality is already there. I think Affinity can harness it.
