  1. The issues I was experiencing have been resolved. 😀 There were in fact, several things going on that I was not initially aware of. And I hope by exposing my evaluation and discoveries, others will be able to avoid the enigmas I was presented with and perhaps some documentation upgrades may result. First, it is important to understand that not all of the jitters will work with brushes defined using custom Nozzles and Textures. For certain, Shape Jitter and Hardness Jitter will only work, it seems, with brushes that are not defined using Nozzles or Textures. Flow Jitter barely work
  2. It's early morning here and I don't have the Cintiq 22 hooked up, but have played around and noticed something using Mouse only. Affinity displays the nozzle when not stroking and with Rotation Jitter set to Direction, moving the mouse without stroking rotates the nozzle image. This gives me an idea how to more clearly test the Pens and I will do so and report back.
  3. Dan, Thanks for responding. I recently purchased and just received all of the compatible Pens (except one) for the Cintiq 22 and not having the Cintiq 22 for long yet, decided to go ahead and ensure each pen was working while at the same time, testing the Affinity Brush customizations and their affect on the Cintiq 22 Pens. I tested both with the Pen Pressure On and Off. I created a set of Custom Brushes which I created from Nozzle patterns I created or borrowed from Gimp. By doing this, I hoped to test without corrupting the default brush sets. I found that I cou
  4. I take note of the Brush Customization features in Affinity Photo/Designer/Publisher and do appreciate it much, but I am baffled when it comes to making dynamic settings obvious on a canvas when using Wacom's Ciintiq 22. Some dynamic jitters clearly change the display brush stroke, but some do not. And none of them seem to effect the Wacom Pens. What am I missing? Is it that Serif's Affinity products do not interface with Wacom Products? If the two products do interface, how do I set things up so that the Wacom Pen actions reflect the Affinity Dynamic Jitter settings?
  5. Thank You! That worked. So the definition of Physical is any Document Unit that is NOT Pixels. And of course, the definition of Pixels is Pixels. So it's not a bug and my confusion is resolved. This little ditty ought to be documented somewhere.
  6. I have discovered something unusual across all three Affinity Applications which may be a Bug. Refer to this Thread Link ... https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/119040-isometric-grid-and-axis-physical-vs-pixel/&tab=comments#comment-647332

  8. Here's an update to this Thread which reflects something I found in digging across all three Affinity Applications. I have found that the Pixel Type Grids are not accessible to Affinity Designer, but show up in the Grid and Axis Preset Manager Dialog, all the same. Further, the Physical type Grids are not accessible to Affinity Photo or Affinity Publisher, but show up in the Grid Axis Preset Manager Dialog, all the same. It does not seem to matter whether the Isometric Panel is Active r not. If the Physical Grids were meant to be used by Affinity Designer, it is odd indeed,
  9. I'm still on that Learning Curve and voila! I've come across another feature that is not well explained in Documentation, Help or out there on the Wild and Wooley Web. When Presets for Isocmetric Grid and Axis Settings are Listed in the Drop-down, certain Categories which show up in the Manage Presets Dialog do not show. Further Investigation reveals that the Presets that do no show have exclusively, Presets that are Pixel, as opposed to Physical. I have tried like crazy to create a Pixel Preset, but they all turn out Physical. And I cannot find out how to load a Pixel Prese
  10. For now, I've had a good Intro to the topic of Typography in Affinity Photo and with Usage in Affinity Photo, Design and Publisher, the diversity of Font Variations will become more fluent in my Knowledge Base. Thanks.
  11. Well, I'm as good with this as I can get. I roughly figured out the remainder of the unknowns without being able to see their effects on a Font. Key to understand Variants is the following Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variant_form_(Unicode)
  12. Thanks, but this is the easy stuff that I had no problems with. The difficult stuff concerns the Text Styles Panel, not the Character Panel or the Paragraph Panel. When you edit or create a new Text Style, you get a Dialog that has many options for creating Text Style Presets. One of the big confusion issues is that not everything in that Dialog may apply to a selected Font. But its there. I've progressed a bit further in my attempts to rationalize the "New/Edit Text Style (my term as the dialog has no name)" Dialog. I've found by opening the Typography Dialog from menus, b
  13. I had already looked into the Adobe Open Type Articles and downloaded a couple of their PDFs.. But no, I was not satisfied that those provided any clarity regarding the Affinity Text Type Panel Typography Edit Dialog content.
  14. While still somewhat new to Afinity's product line, I have been doing the Learning Curve Thing. While I am generally able to find out most things, I have been stumbling over the details in the Text Styles Panel (Edit Styles Dialog). I have dug and dug and can't find any documentation and cannot find any hints on the web for some of the Options in that Dialog. For example, Typography > Alternates has a series of Combo Boxes that set numbers for Stylistic Alternates, Swash, Ornaments, Annotation Forms and All Alternates. I haven't a clue what those numbers imply. And it do
