  1. Oops! Too busy looking at the topic. Yes, I'm using Affinity Designer for Windows 10.
  2. Hello, I think I'm at the right topic for my question. I am new to Affinity Designer (Windows) as well as graphic designing as a whole. I'm following an online course to learn about the basics and there's is something shown in Adobe Illustrator that I can't find in AD. (I've never worked with Illustrator.) For this exercise I need to separate the letters ánd the background shapes, so that I can colour each shape individually. In Illustrator there is a step to make this an 'active painting area' after which you can start colouring the letters, the background shapes and the overlapping shapes with live paint. I'm struggling to find that function in Affintity Designer. I've tried all the boolean options, with the rectangle in front of the letters or at the back, but I can't get the result I'm looking for. I hope I've explained it well enough. Does anyone know how to do this? Issue Cutting Text.afdesign
  3. Thank you all for clearing that up! I am totally new to grapic designing and I saw a short tutorial of text warping in Illustrator. I wondered if that was possible in Affinity as well, so I grabbed an image of the internet that looked like it to quickly illustrate what I ment. I obviously still have a lot to learn and I'm definitely going to try to do it manually. Thanks!
  4. Hi, I've recently started working with Affinity Designer and I'm also struggling to combine text to shapes. I know how to place text in a path, but I would also like to know how to form the text in the actual shape. So instead of the text following the path of a circle, how do I shape the text in an actual circle as in the image below? Thanks in advance!
