  1. I was trying Shape Builder and wanted to invoke the x-ray mode that I’ve seen on various tutorials. When I tap the Navigator icon and then tap on either Main View Mode or Split View Mode, Designer crashes instantly. I’ve tried with both the beta and mainstream app, getting the same result. I have also tried it with other files and it seems to work a little better. I have found that if I use the Designer module within Affinity Publisher for iPad, with the same file, there is absolutely no problem. I am attaching the file. You’ll see that it is not particularly large or complicated particular shapes. I was trying to combine using Shake Builder were the little houses (I was trying to replicate what the original artist had made, for practice). I realise there is probably something weird about the file, but this crash shouldn’t really happen, I think. cardch4.afdesign
  2. That's exactly what I did in Affinity, but when I looked at it afterwards, the resulting PDF showed a dark grey rather than black: The CMYK sliders were incorrect when I re-viewed the file to double check.
  3. Puzzled as to how you find this settings window. My export options don't include overprin t ot spot colours, for example. Working in Mac v 1.7.3. I'm having trouble exporting true black in pdfs for my printer's too.
  4. I've used AD to produce full sized roll-ups and sent the output in PDF format to a printing company. They've always come back absolutely perfect.
  5. Hi, Loved the first edition of your styles. I was wondering if you'd managed to come through with the new styles you mention here?
  6. I have used Inkscape for a long time and bitmap tracing is where many of my projects start since I have to produce in-house menu icons/UI bits based on a client's logo. Very often, the client has no idea where the vector original is (if it ever existed), or it would take ages to request and receive it, so tracing is a Godsend. Please bump it up the development ladder so I can come over to Affinity Designer and not have to sit astraddle the fence. :blink:
  7. As suggested by whomever is manning your Twitter account (@AffinityBySerif ) today, I reset Studio via View>Studio>Reset and the Layers panel magically reappeared (I do wish there was a simple interface button for layers!). This allowed me to see that the layer containing the actual design was deactivated (unticked) and thus invisible. This is probably caused by some nasty shenanigans during Illustrator PDF export. I have been to-ing and fro-ing all morning with my printers because they insisted they couldn't see the design, that my file was blank save the printing marks. When I described my Affinity situation (deactivated layer), and made the innocent suggestion that they might be having a similar problem, I received an email within five minutes requesting my final approval of the order :unsure: . No admitting anything nor apologies, mind you. So I imagine you won't needing the file? If you want it anyway to see where the hitch was, to where do I send it? Thanks, Tracey
  8. Point 1: I have this enabled but still cannot see a layers panel except in Export Persona (how on earth do I edit on a particular layer if I can't jump to it?!) Point 2: An Illustrator-created PDF file imported to Affinity Designer only shows the bleeds/printer's marks layer and not the actual design layers. How do I make this visible?
