  1. Still amazes me how well this forum works. Thanks to everyone for contributing!
  2. Thank you again, another feature I was not aware of. Solves most of the issues in Designer I had with my question. In this case, a "fit to Artboard" function or Photos approach with Fill-Layers still would be a nice thing for some situations.
  3. Interesting approach, thank you for taking the time putting this together. I appreciate that. The Fill-Layers solved my problem for now, but one day I might have a more advanced problem for your advanced solution here.
  4. Perfect, thank you very much, this solves my little problem in a very elegant (and non destructive) way and saves me a lot of time. I just did not know that they exist. Now I do and I will use them for quick background color changes, create gradient overlays or mask them with a white brush stroke or stamp etc. And all that non-destructive because they are vector based, nice. Just what I needed. At least in Photo this makes my "fit to canvas" point superfluous.
  5. Thanks for the response... Interesting tip with the "spreadwidth", did not know that. And yes... still too much work;) Using Templates and Assets extensively,, but they just do not to solve this little "problem". Dragging and snapping is fine, just hoped there is a faster way to accomplish this task.
  6. I am dragging way too much rectangles to fit the artboards dimensions in designer or to fit a canvas in Photo. Draw a rectangle with the rectangle tool and then dragging the corners to snap to the artboards or canvas corners does work fine but it just takes too long. Is there a quicker way or a shortcut I am missing ? Something like "fit to artboards size" or "fit do canvas size" ?
  7. Thanks for the input, did that with an opacity of 75%. It does the trick quite well...
  8. Just guessing... It looks like he uses texture, grain and some airbrush brushes in pixel layers overlaying the actual vectors to achieve that look. At some parts the vectors could be rasterised and then further edited (blurred, smudged etc.) as pixel layers to get rid of that "vector look" you mention.
  9. I want to simulate the limitations of color gamuts from 2 different color profiles in a editable way. A random picture containing colours that are possible in the RGB spectrum, could be a color circle for example. Using filters, adjustment layers or other techniques to simulate something in between RGB and CMYK is the goal. Less colours than possible in RGB but more colours than possible in CMYK. The result should be something in the middle between RGB/8 sRGB IEC61966-2.1 and CMYK/8 U.S Web Coated (SWOP) v2. I am curios and I want to learn, so any input regarding this is welcom
  10. correct. The Affinity Help explains it like this: Nozzle-specific controller (Pressure, Velocity, Rotation, etc.)—For multi-nozzle brushes, pick a controller from the pop-up menu and click the adjacent Ramp profile icon to select a standard profile from lower thumbnails or create your own using the ramp chart.
  11. For some use cases it could work very well. Yes I have tried all the possible settings. Cyclic results in a brush stroke like this:
  12. I am working on my own custom brushes. I am creating brushes with 5 - 8 different nozzles. The random setting in the nozzles texture panel works quite well for some brushes but I need to control the sequence of the nozzles a little more. The problem is that the random setting produces a stroke where the nozzles often get repeated twice or more in a row. In my example you can see that the "square star" appears twice in a row and the "circle" 3 times in a row in a single brush stroke. - Is it possible to iterate in one sequence trough all the nozzles ? In this case:
  13. ...it does, but it's unhandy in this workflow. I simply select the templates, rightclick and choose desired application in the finder. Anyway, like i said, it's not the worlds end, just wondered about the concerning messages since the file was created by an authorised affinity app.
  14. I see, sorry for the confusion... The whole procedure was the following: I created lots of templates in Affinity Designer for use with Designer. Then I created lots of templates in Affinity Photo to use in Photo. Both end with .aftemplate. Then I took a template generated with Affinity Designer and changed it to open with Designer instead of the default set Publisher. I also checked the option to open all files with the .aftemplate ending with Designer. Since I need to create lots of templates, It is easier to open a batch of templates direct from the finder to chec
  15. Yes I did, but this is some weird overprotecting in this case 🤨. "Affinity Photo created this file..." but now its not safe anymore ?? Does not make sense to me in any way. It's not the worlds end, but still I like to be able to change the default app to open with on a double click.
  16. I created a few templates in AF this morning. I was able to open them in AF new>templates>myCustomFolder> abc.aftemplate and direct from the finder as well. Since I changed the "open with Affinity Publisher" to "open with Affinity Photo" the templates can not be opened from the Finder anymore. Resulting in strange warning messages from MacOs. The templates can still be opened via AF>new>templates, but I need to open multiple of them in one action to check them for errors. Thats why I opened them in finder directly.
  17. There are no Artboards in Publisher (same in Photo), so there is no value to change for that slider. I dont know why its in the Prefs, it only makes sense in Designer...
  18. Yes, thats a good idea. Gonna go with this, saves me a lot of time... Thank you, that helped me a lot.
  19. Not sure if I got this right, but I think I am having the same question here. I need all the corners to be sharp. The inside corners are round and they should be sharp to be consistent with the outer ones. But I cant find a setting to achieve this. My initial question:
