  1. Yay! Just ordered this so I have a deadline to finish the excellent Designer Work Book too!
  2. Hi, Great character with a lot of personality and I really like the brush work and colouring.
  3. Wow!! Amazing...makes me realise how much studying I still have to do! thanks for posting them!
  4. Wow! Just checked my apple updates and theres a 1.4.1 update! Loving all these features you're adding...thank you!
  5. Thanks ABC, thats good to know...actually turns out I hadn't noticed a tick box that called use fill! Still got to get my old Illustrator habits out of my system!
  6. Great post, I'm a big fan of Nina Simone and love the textures you have used here.
  7. Really nice branding, great retro style and colours- works really well and the bacon sandwich cake is fantastic! Good luck to your sister.
  8. Hi That's a great article...Sorry I have no answers here but good luck with making sprite sheets with SVG. I tried in my recent website update for the social media icons but ended up using a png. They looked fine in all my browsers until I tested it on a windows phone and the placement was all off. Granted, I still have a lot to learn about SVG's but not sure Windows mobile and IE 11 or less support is great for more than the basics. PS I'd mentioned about the style attribute in the past, not a massive deal but would be great if you had some options in the SVG export.
  9. This is driving me nuts and I know it will be something that I am doing wrong but when I select the pen and choose a colour, I draw a shape, then I start a new shape the colour I chose originally vanishes. How do I make the colour stay in the swatch? I hope that makes sense?? This is using Affinity Designer. thanks in advance...
  10. Amazing list of additions to both Photo and Designer. Thanks for all the hard work!! Hope you all have a great Christmas and have a well deserved break!
  11. Yes, really nice. I thought it was a 3D render! Well done!
  12. Hi, it was worth the craziness- the feather boa looks great!
  13. Hi George, the banners look great! Eye-catching images and a large bold header without lots of text. should do the job perfectly-hope it goes well! Gary
  14. Thanks all for the brilliant comments and sorry for the delay in responding, I hadn't to see if anyone else had responded!
  15. actually it seems that if i lock a layer, it doesn't lock layers that are nested under it (child layers)?
  16. Hi just wondered if this was a bug but when I used Select All, it selects items on layers that are locked too? I would have thought that it should only select unlocked items?
  17. Would be useful to have this option for when using CSS to alter SVG in websites so we don't have to edit the code or use !important. (such as the bold bit in this sample) <path d="M1082.7…………86,320.174C1080.46,339.061 1082.76,370.645 1082.76,414.882L1082.76,727.84Z" style="fill:black;fill-rule:nonzero;"/>
  18. Hi Leigh Aah!! I always forget about the !important tag!!! thanks for the help (and calling it inline CSS-much more succinct than my long-winded explanation!), I'll put in a feature request.
  19. Hi, I've just been experimenting with exporting to SVG and importing the code into HTML so I can restyle with CSS but after trying a few options (not all of them...) it seems every path has a style already set which overrides my CSS style sheet. Is there a way to export without the style tags so I don't have to go through and delete them? Heres an example of what I mean: its the bold bit that I have to delete for every path. <path d="M1082.76,727.84L1002.6,727.84L1002.6,414.882C1002.6,378.12 1000.31,350.549 995.71,332.178C991.114,313.79 980.222,297.89 963.039,284.44C945.843,270.999 926.018,264.265 903.56,264.265C862.376,264.265 827.905,281.12 800.172,314.815C772.43,348.511 758.564,393.607 758.564,450.107L758.564,727.84L678.414,727.84L678.414,30.9654L758.564,30.9654L758.564,307.161C794.98,234.328 847.06,197.899 914.793,197.899C945.08,197.899 972.051,203.861 995.71,215.774C1019.36,227.686 1037.48,243.345 1050.08,262.745C1062.67,282.145 1071.27,301.286 1075.86,320.174C1080.46,339.061 1082.76,370.645 1082.76,414.882L1082.76,727.84Z" style="fill:black;fill-rule:nonzero;"/> thanks Gary
  20. Thanks for the kind comments Peter and you are right, the lettering with perspective was a challenge for me and has made me pick up a book on lettering and calligraphy (not easybeen left handed!) to help improve.
  21. Hi everyone, Cover for Summer School Show. Hand drawn basic outline then scanned and bought into Affinity Design to Trace. This is the first actual project I've done in AD and really like the workflow (once I got used to certain ways of working). Looking forward to playing around a bit now this done.
  22. Aah, I missed that-I was looking for a drop down menu! Thats great, thanks Dave.
  23. Hi. I'd really like it if we could specify separate measurements for the document and for type, so I could have rulers and object sizes etc in mm but type and leading would be in points. thanks Gary
