  1. I've been messing around with this thing for 2 hours now. I can't get it to do a damned thing, anywhere. I uninstalled it, grabbed updated driver, re-installed and set up again. Still nothing, in AD or out. At a loss as to what I can do next.
  2. Excellent!! This made perfect sense and worked a treat. Many thanks h_d for your time and your explanation...
  3. This worked really well for me, but it affects the image I'm working with, and I wouldn't be able to repeat its use on all the other images I want to work on, which means I have to do this from scratch again and again - unless I'm missing something...
  4. I think yours must a little different to mine. I don't seem to have 'Live Lighting', but I do have 'Lighting'. Everything works fine up to when I need to somehow get it over to Designer so I could use it. Your explanation on that I didn't quite understand.
  5. Hi Carl123 & Andy05, You both make a good point. I hadn't actually looked to see if the tablet worked elsewhere, I was just looking to get it running in Affinity. As I said, I've never used one before and know very little about them, let alone setting them up. I wasn't aware that it should work in Windows in general. I'll look at that again, maybe I've installed something incorrectly, something I haven't activated somewhere. <sigh> whatever happened to plug n play? 😁
  6. Hi all, Thanks for all the info, and I have to say none of which I tried quite in the same way! But I will be trying out each one later today, see which one works best for me - I'll let you all know how I get on. Thanks again

  8. Hi folks, I need some guidance from you more experienced users of AD. My apologies in advance if I fail to explain what I'm trying to do very well; I'll do the best I can. I'm trying to make a mask that I can use from my assets section, that basically blacks out the underlying image except for a semi-circular section at the bottom where it fades out smoothly. The result when used would look like candlelight, or a small torch in the dark, revealing the the image closest to the torch clearly but fading out to black. I'm probably going about it all wrong, or maybe there's a simple way to do it, but whatever way I try, I can't get a workable mask, and if I do, the transition from transparent to black is unsatisfactory. Does any one have any advice on how to produce this effect? Bare in mind that I would be using this as a temporary mask on many images, so if I can make one it will save me a huge amount of work. I've found this image that might help show what I'm trying to do, not a very good image I know, but it should give you some idea. The transition to darkness is a little too sharp for what I need, but it's close enough. Thanks
  9. Been a while now, and no response to this at all. Have I posted it in the wrong place?
  10. Hello all, I have a wireless Huion Q11K pen and tablet and I am trying to get it up and running, I am a complete novice when it comes to tablets; never used one before, so I'm waving my arms about in the dark right now! I'm assuming it can be used with AD so correct me if I'm wrong. I have charged it, installed it and fired it up, and I get the initial config stuff as to screen size uses, which screen to use etc, etc, but I can't see or figure out how I get it to work in AD. Can anyone help me out here? Much appreciated
  11. Hi, and thanks, I found some .psd files that AP could open and have all the items intact that I can use. A bit odd that I can't get that from the files intended for AP, but there you go... Thanks again.
  12. Hello all, I have bought a package that contains various assets for AD and AP. The stuff for AD I have imported ok but I have a couple of .ai files and I'm unsure what I need to do with them. I have double clicked them and they open up fine, but with hundreds of layers containing many bit's and pieces that make up the various images on the workspace. I feel sure I'm meant to import them in some way to be able to make good use of the items I can see but I have no idea how. Can anyone help? Thanks G Windows 7 Affinity Photo 1.8.5
  13. Aah, I see it now....simple mistake all along. Many thanks OB!
  14. Hi all, I would very much like to find out why AD moves my layers without me expressly doing so. I create a layer begin working in it and suddenly it shifts, snapping to the top of all the other layers, I can't figure out why it does that and is becoming very irritating, because I then have to do things in a more log-winded way to get what I want. It will happen 3 or 4 times out of 5. Anyone have any ideas as to why and how I can fix it please? Desktop version 1.8.5 Windows 7 Thanks G SS1.mp4
  15. Hi Walt, That seems to be the problem. It was set at 1045 for some reason. Brought it down to 0 and they all seem to work fine now. Thanks Walt, once again you've pulled me out of the fire!!
