  1. Very much appreciated and congrats again sacboi. If you have a Twitter handle I'd like to use it for the post. Cheers!
  2. Hey sacboi! I just found this by pure chance!! It is great and I am so happy I discovered it!! I love to see what ppl come up with, especially when the result is so good! Do you mind if I post this on my student's gallery and show it on a couple of posts? (with your name on it obviously hhh) It came out really well, and so did the Porsche 911! Pity I didn't see this thread before! Congrats and thanks for taking the class by the way
  3. aha, so this is Czech! Can't even figure out in my wildest dreams how "šišlat" is pronounced... In that case I think I'd even stutter haha
  4. hahaha... I have an accent! Changed now, thanks for the heads up 😘
  5. Finished artwork for the tutorial "Vector Illustration Techniques". I enjoy very much creating these pieces and explaining how I go about them so others can do the same. It's really satisfying at all levels seeing the results. The tut is available on my site https://www.isabelaracama.com and also a help group for questions and those wanting to share their thoughts and artwork. I have also set a challenge so those of you finalising their on take on the illustration, will get access to the source file so they can compare their work with mine. Thanks and a kiss for all.
  6. Thanks a lot for this Paul! I pinned it to the video so iPad users will see it right away.
  7. Thanks very much for the detailed replies to both of you. I have assigned the Alt/Opt key to the stylus, and it works as I needed. The main thing for me was not to have to refer to the keyboard or click anywhere on the interface to alternate between picker and brush fast, as I have always done in other apps when painting. Thanks again, you really helped me to clarify my confusion, even knowing the Alt option existed I hadn't thought of it
  8. UPDATED> I'm confused. I tried again now and it doesn't swap back to previous colour. Might be a driver thing maybe. Since I changed OS nothing seems to work for the Wacom as it should the first 10 attempts. /// Hi! Anyone knows if there's a way that I could swap colours on the colour panel chips via shortcut or stylus button? Having the wacom stylus 2 buttons one is set to pick colour but the moment I go back to brush, the colour I picked swaps again to the one before. I guess there must be a way but I cannot find how to do this effectively. I have attached a video. For the sake of making it more clear instead of using the stylus buttons or keyboard shortcuts I use the bar to select tools. Thanks! shortcut.mp4
  9. I know to have the new view option one has to be on the separated view mode. But so many times I find myself going back to the merged mode for the sake of some order in my screen and issues with the UI when working with several monitors that end up making me tired of looking for the next UI panel hidden somewhere. If the new view was only possible then, it'll be great. And it'd be great too being able to detatch file tabs from the UI without having to go into separate mode. I guess it might be not that easy to implement or something otherwise I am not really sure why this is like it is at the moment. Somehow it does not feel comfortable so many times working with these constraints. It's a suggestion from my own experience while painting. Thanks, Isabel.
  10. Any plans to have the chance to link two layers? Just like in Photoshop. Grouping doesn't work here as the layers need to me stacked separatedly. One is at the bottom, the other on the very top of the layers panel and in between, many other layers that need to stay there where they are. I looked around for a workaround but nothing seems as convenient as a simple "link layers" option. Thanks!
  11. Ok, then justlike me.. Iget it. Totally agree with you... not a fan os dark OS and would love for it to be back to light.. but... not big deal. Thanks again for your constant help!
  12. Hi R C-R! Thanks for the informations! So you mean you have the top menu background also dark? I get those fine and light... and good I do.. I much prefer them to be light for menus .
  13. Thaks v_kyr! I have it dark in AD as usual... but what I don't get is that, having the light mode in Mojave AD is still getting the dark OS mode when I open from within it... I tried and saw that making the AD UI light, it will display to light for the OS too... Summing up, I did all the combinations and the only one that will give me the light OS window whic is the one I have set for the OS, is the light UI in AD.. But oh well...
  14. Thanks! I will. So far I wouldn't say I have so many though. But good to keep an eye on. We'll see if this lasts as is now thanks again
  15. Well I have updated the OS, just to start somewhere, and I am in Mojave now, as I didn't want to be on Catalina yet. And it looks all issues have gone now. Some stuff in the AD UI look different, like the OS windows that now are dark if the UI is dark and clear if the UI is clear, but I can live with that... even though before I was on the dark UI and my OS windows where light and I prefer it... but I see I cannot change it now somehow. Also I put the UI light for Mojave, so I am not sure why it is showing it all dark when before it wasn't. Anyways... it looks like all the important things are fine now so fair enough. Fingers crossed!! Thanks again for the help everyone!
  16. Thanks markw I will try all those things you say. This morning only did the line through top menu issue a couple of times and nothing else. Been trying to replicte the font problem and it was impossible... in any case I now have some ideas to try and solve it. Thanks again!
  17. Thanks markw! I bought it from Apple store. So am I supposed to remove those and then uninstall and reinstall and put them back right?
  18. No I haven't done that you mention. APhoto works perfectly. No issues whatsoever.
  19. I think also it is AD related, but.. how can then be explained that when disconnecting the new second monitor now I still have these problems (and never before)? Does this make sense at all? Thanks for the super help!
  20. Hi v_kyr thanks again for the help offered. So I will gather all in one post, maybe this helps better: 1. Until 3 days ago I had a Macbook Pro 15 inches mid 2015 on Sierra OS (10.12) connected through Thunderbolt 2 to my Cintiq 22HD Touch. Drivers are all up to date on the Wacom. All worked perfectly fine always for any software. I was happy and no problems whatsoever for years. 2. I have now bought a BenQ PD2700U and connected it through the other Thunderbolt 2 port available on the macbook pro. So now it is Macbook + Cintiq + BenQ 3. At the same time, about 2 days ago, I started to experience all this I show on the images and videos ONLY IN AFFINTY DESIGNER. I've tested Affinity Photo and other graphic software and all works fine. My first thought was it could be related to the new monitor but then... I realised it was only for Designer. 4. I however disconnected the new monitor to see if it persisted, and yes, it does persist crashing specially but not limited when I work with fonts, and some new anomalies happened to it as I was working through the day, like the broken icons and interface. 5. I don't know what else to do now other than trying to update the OS which I was anyways thinking of doing as it is about time. Thanks.
  21. Thanks a lot for the help and suggestions v_kyr I have disconnected the new monitor and this keeps crashing and doing all sorts of weirdness... so at least now I know it is not related to it... which makes me wonder why is this going on now and never before. Icons on the toolbar look half broken and there is a weird line on the top menu area. It happens and ten it comes back to normal and back again like this. This now on the normal UI mode (not separated).
  22. More poltergeists... Now when I want to type, it jumps to a different canvas on a different file opened. more.mp4
  23. but but.. then I'm mising all fonts! And no, I'm actually not missing any font. I don't know... I restart and all is fine, then all of a sudden, this happens again. I need to investigate further..
  24. Hi firstdefence! Thanks for such detailed help. Its a BenQ Pd2700U connected through thunderbolt 2 port. My mac is a mid 2015 on Sierra OS. I always had the Cintiq connected also like this to it. Now I have both, Cintiq and monitor. I had never experienced this before at all... that´s why I started suspecting on the monitor, but it´s only happening in Designer... not in Photo so far. In case this helps too as it sounds it might... I have just noticed there is an exclamation mark before each and every font name on the font field... I had never seen it before either. Only in Designer. Photo works fine. UPDATE: There´s something rotten about this file... I suspect. I know experience selecting a font in the file and it doesn´t display the name for some of the texts. I try in a new file and it works al fine... However, I see Designer is behaving weird in general...
  25. Ni worries GarryP. I will first try to replicate disconnecting the new monitor. From there I'll see more. It's crashing all the time when I try to select a font... Thanks anyhow! Happy weekend.
