  1. Hi @schk welcome to the forums, Could you upload your file to the below private dropbox link so we can investigate this further? https://www.dropbox.com/request/QfkjtvjHiEFA8VWHosSq
  2. Hi @Caineandco, Attached is a quick video demonstrating how I did this without snapping on Mac, however the edges of the rectangle crop can be adjusted to the correct positioning after. Screen Recording 2022-03-17 at 11.40.43.mov You could delete and re-size curves to achieve this, but it may be a lengthy process.
  3. Hi @Asahii, Could you try disabling 'Wet Edges' on the context toolbar (click the two white arrows on the right hand side) and try painting again.
  4. Hi @Caineandco welcome to the forums, One way to achieve this is to use a rectangle shape as a crop within the layer to remove the cut borders and anything outside of them. This can be achieved by drawing out a rectangle shape inside the cut lines and then offering the shape to the layer. See the attached document for this being applied. Cut help Cropped.afdesign
  5. I've been able to replicate this issue using the same brush configuration and it appears to be related to the brush spacing, to reduce the brush lag i would advise increasing the 'Spacing' setting on the first tab to 3/4% and trying again.
  6. Hi @jtp welcome to the forums, Could you provide the original designer file you have been trying to export to PDF? the Log file indicates there is an issue with a miter join size. Below is a private dropbox link if you wish to upload it there. https://www.dropbox.com/request/0oTHSb3onX5FIFaJtuGs
  7. Hi @mtojay welcome to the forums, Unfortunately as far as i'm aware there isn't a way to achieve this via Macros since they do not record exports and TGA isn't an available format in processing batch jobs. Perhaps some other members of the community could have some suggestions on how to achieve this.
  8. Hi @Doren Sorell, I'm trying to replicate this issue back here but i've been unsuccessful so far, could you confirm which brush you used in the video and the specific settings on that brush profile when you double click to edit the brush? A screenshot of this would be great.
  9. Hi @rogeande, Setting the Opacity of the Outer Glow layer effect to 0% will cause the effect not to appear on the layer. Have you tried increasing the Opacity?
  10. Hi @Affinity Rat, I've moved this over to Feature Requests & Suggestions as Boolean operations are currently only possible with Vector Curves and shapes from what i've confirmed.
  11. Hi @Doren Sorell, Could you try changing your View Quality setting to 'Nearest Neighbour (Fastest) and the Display to 'OpenGL (Basic)' in Preferences > Performance to see if this makes any improvement to the brush on speed? Could you also send over the file you're having an issue with as an attachment or alternatively to the below private dropbox link? I'll see if this issue can be replicated. https://www.dropbox.com/request/KAWZM586EHgj4ZbC6i4l Thanks, N
  12. Hi @rogeande welcome to the forums, One way in which you could achieve this white glow effect around your separate layer is applying an 'Outer Glow' layer effect and experimenting with the Radius,Intensity and Blend Mode. Layer Effects can be found in the 'Effects' Panel which can be enabled by going to View > Studio > Effects
  13. Hi @Ndrake45, I've looked into the photo file and exported to TIFF but i'm not seeing a lighting difference between the top two and bottom two quadrants on the photo or TIFF file, could you provide any screenshots of what this looks like on your side? I'll send you a private PM with a link to the TIFF for reference.
  14. I've been able to replicate this but also reduce it's effect and time on screen, but this also depends on the speed of your hardware, as moving the custom vector brush stroke will require your GPU to re-render it's location each time. To reduce the artifacting, I would suggest changing the below settings in Preferences > Performance Set View Quality to 'Nearest Neighbour' Set Retina Rendering to 'Low quality (Fastest)'
  15. Which Operating System are you using? You can also try changing the Renderer to WARP (Windows) or Display to Software (Mac) to see if this has an impact. Could you also export your custom brush by following the below steps: 1. On the Brushes Panel, select your custom brushes category 2. select the white dropdown on the right hand side, select export brushes (as shown below) 3. Save the file and attach it to your post. I'll then see if I can replicate the behaviour. Thanks, N
  16. Hi @IanBarber, I've tried to replicate this on a new file but i'm getting different results, Could you attach the original file that you have used in your screenshots?
  17. Hi @Zakolnuki welcome to the forums, Could you try unchecking Hardware Acceleration under Preferences > Performance (the last checkbox option) and seeing if this resolves your issue? Thanks, N
  18. Hi @Ndrake45 welcome to the Forums, Could you upload your file as an attachment or alternatively to the below private dropbox link so we can investigate this further? https://www.dropbox.com/request/pCDFy3A8k73EPC2S2ajL Thanks N
  19. Could you try the below on the release version of Photo to revert the application to its default settings. 1. Press Win + R and enter %APPDATA% and navigate to the 'Affinity' Folder. 2. Right click the Photo folder and compress the folder to a ZIP to create a backup. 3. On the application shortcut, click once onto the shortcut, hold down control and right click > open the application whilst still holding down control. 4. This will prompt a new menu 'Clear User Data' with three boxes ticked, press the 'Clear' at the bottom right hand corner. 5. Load the application back up and confirm if this has resolved the issue.
  20. No Problem, 1. I first created a blank new document in Photo and added a new Fill layer by going to Layers > New Fill Layer and gave the fill layer a bitmap image and then saved the document (See Attached Test Artboard Fill.afphoto) 2. I then created a blank new Artboard in Designer and opened the afphoto fill document. 3. Copy the Fill layer and paste it onto the artboard. 4. When I re-scale the artboard to a larger size the fill layer automatically adjusts to the size of the artboard. Hope this helps 🙂 N
  21. Hi @JPBERUTTI910, Placing standard image layers will not automatically rescale when an artboard is re-sized, this requires either a Fill or Pattern layer that has been imported from Photo for artboard re-sizing to work as shown in the video.
  22. Could you provide us with the file you're working with as an attachment or to the below dropbox link, we'll see if we can re-create the issue. https://www.dropbox.com/request/33bY9RkcmRVh8Ai9hSs4
  23. Hi @jonasbonas, Unfortunately the only current method to achieve a true vector brush would be to use Appearance panel as you have described. A multi-brush would require an image first which would not be true vector. You can find out more information on this in the below topic. Thanks, N
  24. Could you amend your Performance Preferences Renderer to use WARP, if this doesn't have an impact could you also change the video quality to Nearest Neighbour. When you are experiencing the freeze how long does this last for?
  25. Hi @Studio97Visuals Could you please upload your video to the below dropbox as unfortunately it's not opening on the attachment. https://www.dropbox.com/request/33bY9RkcmRVh8Ai9hSs4 does publisher crash or just hang?
