  1. Many thanks, this worked well. I also tried the duplicate/rotate with a circle with a lune removed via subtract which also worked.
  2. I’ve run into a rather odd problem that I can’t seem to sort out. I was trying to make a flower pattern with overlapping petals by duplicating an object, rotating it, and then using the power duplicate to generate the remainder of the petals. I have presented a simplified example below. The problem is that the final petal (B in the example) is not properly ordered, i.e. I want petal B to be above A but below C to properly complete the pattern. I’ve tried putting B down one level, but then A is wrong. I’ve also tried moving layers in the layer stack, but to no avail. I suspect the problem may be that because it is circular, I have come back to the starting point (petal C) which is at the top of the layer stack while petal B is at the bottom of the layer stack.
  3. FYI, I use an app called RapidResizer which allows me to accurately set the size of a printed image. Therefore, if I set the image size to the AD document size e.g., in mm, I get a paper copy which matches the AD size. I can then transfer this to my wood for carving.
  4. Great! This seems to work. I viewed my 100mm x 100mm document at 50% and it measured (with a ruler) 100 x 100. Similarly, my 10 mm circle measured 10 mm. Do I need to set my DPI at a specific value to ensure this works. I think it was set to 144 for the 100 x 100. This help has been awesome, thanks.
  5. Many thanks for the quick reply!! Yes, this would be viewing the document on my iPad. As another example when I created a new document I set the dimensions of the document at 100mm x 100mm. When I open that document in AD, the aspect ratio is 1:1 which is correct, but when I created a 10mm circle on the screen, it is physically larger than that, I.e., when I measure it with a ruler. I was wondering if there was a setting that would automatically show the document as 100mm x 100mm on my iPad screen, i.e, an "actual size" button. The reason I am doing this is that I want to convert some of my drawings into wood carvings, and I need to assess if the size of something I have drawn is practical in terms of carving. Thanks again
  6. I would like to be able to view my Affinity Designer document as it will appear when printed. For example, when I created a new document I set the document size to 203 mm x 279 mm and I would like to see it displayed on my iPad at this size. I suspect that the answer to this question is either very simple or very complicated. Thanks.
  7. On several occasions, the Affinity Designer app has closed on me while I was actively using it with a loss of recent actions. This has happened three times today.
