  1. Hi, Callum Thanks for your prompt answer and the brush. It works just grand. So, that leaves the question, where did I go wrong with my brush ??? Obviously I made a mistake somewhere along the line, could it be because I exported it as a PNG ? I really can't figure it out ... Also the shift in position is very odd, the halo moves upward when I export it. At one earlier trial the entire the entire picture (separate layers) even ended up with one enormous Gaussian Blur applied when exported as PNG, which made it well, one big blurrrrrr Anyway, thanks again very much for your trouble !
  2. I'm having a terrible time creating a brush: The file consists of 2 layers, the lamp itself and the "Halo shine" around it. When exporting the file as PNG, the halo either : a)Shifts position and or b) doesn't show at all in the brush. See example attachments. I have: 1. created the file in Designer > export to photo >rasterize layers >create brush 2. created the file in photo itself from scratch. In both cases the problem persists. Anyone has any ideas about what goes wrong ? Any help is appreciated, as always. C.L. light.afbrushes light5.afphoto
  3. I'm trying to create a lamp, which I then want to turn into a paint-brush, with which to paint a string of lights. I've got the lamp sorted in AffPhoto, but the more I reduce the size of the lamp, the more it becomes pixellated. I simply cannot get a sharp image, see attachment. I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong, the lamp-shape I created with the shape tool and converted into a pixel layer. Can someone please point the way ? Thanks a buch in advance !

    @Peterterhorst Hi, Peter, I have read the Dutch Wikipedia page. Just one comment : The Affinity software is listed as "expensive". It is not expensive. Maybe split the list in two parts, expensive & in-expensive ?

    Why bother?

    Just before Christmas there was a notice on the Homepage of the Forum that the devs were off during the holidays for a little R&R. (A well-deserved rest IMO...) The notice also apologized for any delay in answerering questions posted during that period, > Back after New Year' day after which they would do their very best to catch up ASAP. My questions have always been answered promply, either by the Devs themselves, or by knowledgable Moderators or members of the Forum. I've never, ever, seen such a costumer-oriented software company as Serif , for as long I've been using a computer, which is a longgg time. Having said that, A little understanding seems to be in order.

    Thank you so much, Stuart !!
  8. I have disabled numerous fonts. Yet, they still show up in the fonts listing in Aff Des & Photo & Pub. That makes the listing unnecessary long and tedious to go through when having to pick a font. Is there any way to prevent the disabled fonts from showing up in the listing ? And if not, could this be added to the feature requests ?? I'm sorry if this question has been asked before !
  9. Thanks, Walt. I'll give it go. In the mean time, I'll go through my fonts with a fine toothcomb. Got too many anyway.
  10. Thanks, R C-R., I figured it out: I did disable through the Fontbook app, and the fonts I did disable, do indeed not show up anymore. However, I thought I'd disabled these particular fonts as well, but when I checked it looks like I can neither disable, nor remove them. I think they're system fonts in some non-western script, my guess is Japanese, judging by their name. Hiragino Kaku, Hiragino Mincho. There are numerous others like it. I'll move them to a temp folder to see if that has any influence on the system. C.L.
  11. Hello, I have tried the iPad demo-version in the Apple Store while using: An iPad 2018 in combination with an Apple pen version 1 . This was a normal iPad, not the iPad Pro. Unfortunately, the Apple pen v.1 did not react to either Pressure nor Velocity. My question therefore : does Aff Des for iPad require an iPad Pro + Apple pen v.2 to work properly ?
  12. Thank you, Gabriel. Wish you a very merry xmas and a best ever new year. C.L.
  13. @jeffers :Thanks for the info. Can't help you with the PSO files, I'm afraid, sorry. Just to make sure : did you use Particle shop Aff Photo on a Mac ? BTW : I DO wish. a developer would pick up this question !!
  14. Thanks, tinlt. Has anyone tried to run this plugin on AffPhoto (latest Beta) for Mac ? Thanks, C.L.
  15. It seems the canvas doesn't center by using the cmd+0 keys.
  16. Please see attachment svg. Original document, original measurements in px. Change measurements to mm (via File > Doc Setup > ). Ruler units don't change along, but remain showing px. Makes no difference when chosing straight A4 format either. mm shown in dropdown, but not in ruler. Sometimes units change when unchecking "Include Margins" button, but intermittent and unpredictable. Same happens when chosing File New > Starting out in px units. In the mean time : A wonderful christmas to all of you !! C.L. kalender 2019.svg
  17. >>>>> What happened to the Guides "Editing" feature (lock/unlock guides ). >>>>> What happened to the Guides Independent Drag feature (drag guides at any moment, regardless of tool used) In ALL Beta Builds, Designer, Photo, Publisher !! As it is now, we're back to square one with this, and that was 4 years ago --- NOT GOOD !!!
  18. Hello, Sean, Just downloaded the version and tried again. No change, I'm afraid. Made a screen recording, as per attached. Hope that's OK. Please let me know if the upload worked (huge file, might be my provider will block it). Rulerunits.mov.zip

    Create a Font

    You can create the shapes for the font in AfDesigner, then export the glyphs one by one as SVG, import into Glyphr Studio (free ). Glyphr studio creates Otf fonts, not TTF fonts. If you want TTF fonts, Otf fonts, and convert fonts from one to another, try TypeTool, (not free, $40,- or thereabouts). In case of TypeTool, create the shapes in AffDesigner, export as EPS.
  20. Can someone please tell me how to fill the Stock Studio ? I'd like to put Unsplash in there, but can't for the life of me, find how to do it. Thanks in advance, C.L.
  21. @MEB : Thank you for that. Where do I put my request to get the guides working as they were in the --one before last-- Publisher Beta update ? e..g. Drag while using any tool, lock/unlock with button in toolbar ..... The way they are now is only a slight improvement, rather like 2 steps forward > one step back. A real pity !! As for the rest : great job, wel done !!
  22. @R C-R Indeed, popup menu completely missing. Perhaps there's something in the code that searches for the hardware configuration, so you don't get to see the popup if the hardware doesn't match. IMO the crunched up letters is a matter of the size of the dialog box ?? Anyway, I'm sure the devs will find a fix, haven't seen any comment from them though. Is there a special section to report Beta-Bugs ???
