  1. GarryP, great! Thank you very much for the detailed explanation. My browser saves these files, it does not open them automatically. Now I know exactly how to do the update. Thanks again! Markus
  2. Hello, my Affinity products have been telling me for some time that updates are available. I would like to keep control of my computer during the update process and have therefore not yet clicked on download. Is it possible to download the updates manually and also install them manually? I want to run an uninstaller monitor during the update process. If I install the updates manually, do I have to uninstall the previous Affinity installation or can I install the update directly over it? Thanks for your hints. Kind regards, Markus
  3. Thanks for testing, Walt. Maybe it has to do with the fact, that I have to press and hold the "Alt Gr" Key on my german keyboard, to compose the "[" or "]" character. Is there a user with a german keyboard layout, who can check this? Markus EDIT: I found the cause. In AD, they have these two hotkeys: Select Next & Select Previous These technically represent exactly the same keystroke as "[" and "]". If I delete these two hotkeys, the enlarging/reducing of the brush tip works normally again. :-)
  4. Affinity Designer / Photo, Windows 7 x64 Hello Experts, I have the problem that my hotkeys for enlarging and reducing the brush tip (] and [) only work in Photo. In Affinity Designer the same hotkeys are defined, but the brush tip does not zoom in / out. I test it in Affinity Designer in Pixel Persona with the paintbrush (B). Can anyone confirm the problem or has a solution for it? I don't like to use other hotkeys for it. Markus
  5. You must first convert the image to a curve object, then you can apply the corner tool. I made you a little screen video. In the beginning the image is not converted to a curve object, so the curve tool doesn't work. Then I selected the image, opened the menu "Layers" and selected "Convert to curve". After this I applied the curve tool to the image. My app interface is in german, in english the command is called "convert to curve" (or similar) . Unfortunately my screen recorder does not record the opened menus of Affinity, so you can't see the menu items. I hope I could help you with this. Markus Edit: Sorry, didn't realized that you mean Affinity Photo. Does Photo offer a corner tool??
  6. @ George Gibson: Ja, danke für das Wilkommen heißen, ich freu mich auch, dass es hier Interessierte aus Deutschland gibt. @ George Gibson: Yes, thank you for welcoming me, I am also glad that there are interested people from Germany. @Ernst R.: Auch ich überlege gerade, ob ich mir nicht auch noch den Affinity Publisher zulege, jetzt wo der 50%Rabatt verlängert wurde. Diese Chance bekommt man sicherlich nicht so schnell wieder und ich hätte dann alle drei Programme beisammen. Derzeit mache ich einen online Comic Kurs, einfach nur zum Spaß. Sicherlich werde ich die Grafiken später dann am Computer nachbearbeiten. @Ernst R.: I'm also thinking about buying Affinity Publisher, now that the 50% discount has been extended. This chance is certainly not going to come back so quickly and I would have all three programs together. Currently I'm doing an online comic course, just for fun. Surely I will later rework the graphics on the computer.
  7. Ahh, a small but important detail, which was not clear in the video. Thanks a lot! :-) Markus PS: Damn, I just missed it. It's in the article from GarryP. How embarrassing.
  8. Dear MEB, thanks for the support, but I'm obviously still doing something wrong. Even if I execute "expand stroke" on both objects, this does not lead to the desired result. I have made a video of it. Unfortunately, my screen recorder doesn't seem to include the menus, but I can assure you that I executed "expand strokes" in both cases ("Kurven erweitern" in the german version). The workflow looks exactly the same as in GarryP and both times the rectangle tool was used, so I don't understand why one of the objects are not converted to curves. AD_sub.mp4
  9. Bruce, great! Considering the fact that one can't set hotkeys for it and that the rotation is not saved with the entry, this is a great help. Thanks for the hint. Markus
  10. Hi GarryP, Thanks for the video. I tried to do it as shown, but in my case the small rectangle disappeared after subtracting the two objects. What did you do so that the small rectangle is still "alive" after the subtraction? Markus
  11. Hi team, Are there any zoom presets in Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo that can be quickly accessed? It would be very useful if I could define multiple zoom presets in my document. For example, if you're working on a landscape design, you might often switch between a total view and two or three detail views that you want to edit. For example, leaves on a tree, then bushes further out and the clouds or the sun as the third point of interest. Without any pre-settings, one has to manually zoom and move the viewport to the different places again and again. If I could define some hotkeys for this or if there would be a panel with user-definable zoom presets for the document, then this would be helpful. In a zoom preset the viewport, the zoom level and the rotation of the document could be saved. Does something like this already exist in AD? Markus
  12. Umer, I am pretty sure that you can use the license for a second computer. Serif's license terms allow you to install the software on "all computers that you own and have access to". Now this is not the original wording of the terms and conditions, but this is roughly how Serif described it (which I find really accommodating).
  13. You can view the license key in your account on the Serif / Affinity website. There the necessary data are deposited. https://affinity.serif.com/de/store/ Then click top right at the login icon and log into your account. Greetings Markus
  14. I found a solution. It's a Windows setting. Ironically, it's a setting for Windows tablet mode, but I run Windows on a laptop and a desktop. So I'm not quite sure why Windows 10 defaults to "right-handed" and Windows 7 defaults to "left-handed". Solution: https://www.softwareok.com/?seite=faq-Windows-10&faq=167
  15. Wow, great Art. Looks like Psilocybine or LSD driven visions. 😃 👌 Not that I have any experience with it, but there are people who talk about their drawings. Greetings Markus
