  1. Embedding and linked are two different ways to place resources in your Affinity projects. Today we’ll look at how each of these methods work and the pros an cons of each.
  2. Hi @StudioJason Looks like you probably have the Gradient Tool's "Extend" option set to "Repeat" instead of "Wrap". I'm not sure how to set this on the iPad, but on the desktop version I've highlighted it below. On desktop, I can just select my object with the Gradient tool and change it to Wrap. Hope this helps! - Trent
  3. The style picker tool is an easy way to copy the appearance of one object to another…but it has some tricky elements to it. In this video we’ll look at how to use the tool and also some common problems. I use Affinity Designer as a demonstration, but this also works in Affinity Photo and Affinity Publisher.
  4. In this video we’ll check out how to create a “distressed texture” effect for print-on-demand designs. We’ll explore how to work with vectors, transparent PNGs, and solid JPGs.
  5. Thanks, I may have worded it poorly. It is true that the shape is technically still there. But I think it is impossible to add a stroke in Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo, right? Hence my warning that people should copy the path if they plan to use it later for a stroke or fill. I just checked Affinity Publisher and it seems like it can maintain the stroke via the Text Frame widget as you say. But I don't see that in Designer or Photo.
  6. Text on a path or circle is super easy to do in Affinity Designer. In this video, we’ll check out how to do it and also how to avoid some common pitfalls.
  7. If you want advanced Opacity controls, Blend Ranges are the way to go. In this video, we’ll explore the Blend Options tool and show how to use it effectively for image composition.
  8. Masking a critical technique for non-destructive editing. In this video we’ll explore Vector Masks and Pixel Masks in Affinity Designer.
  9. Masking is a crucial skill for non-destructively editing your photos and art. In this video, we’ll look at masking from the ground up in Affinity Photo.
  10. Blend Modes are an essential tool in all graphics programs. In this video, we’ll look at ALL the blend modes in Affinity products: Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer, and Affinity Publisher.
  11. Dual Lighting is a cool effect that can add some extra punch to your images. Today we’ll look at how to create such images in Affinity Photo (and Designer), and also check out how to create good base images in MidJourney.
  12. The Selection Brush tool is a powerful way to isolate objects in Affinity Photo. But you can get even better results with the Refine feature. We’ll look at both tools in this video, and also explore some extra tips for error-checking our masks.
  13. Clone, Heal, Patch, Inpaint…which one to use? In this Affinity Photo tutorial we’ll look at the various tools for copying and removing objects, along with some image repair techniques.
  14. Vector graphics are what we usually use Affinity Designer for, but did you know there is also an entire raster tool set? In this video we’ll look at the Pixel Persona and will pay particular attention to best practices when working non-destructively with bitmap graphics.
  15. I found a blog post that describes it in more detail. I've only had a chance to skim it so far, but seems like it is literally brute-forcing every possible pie slice size and rotation using glyphs. https://tktype.tumblr.com/post/4343344341/a-not-so-brief-explanation-of-chartwell Glyphs for the value 25:
