  1. How do I wrap one image on to another image in AP? I watched the text wrapping video that puts typed text on to a wall. I want to wrap a tree on to a body so it fits like a wet suit or lycra suit. How could this be done? Is there a video on this already?
  2. is it possible to do a displacement map-wrap-texture-overlay in either AP or AD? For clarification, this would make it appear that the image is painted on to the subject rather than just a masked inlay. If so, how? If not why not? Thanks
  3. How do I fill in a space I create or define with a pattern I have created?
  4. Those solutions did not work for me. Perhaps I am missing something that it is assumed I know, but somehow it is not working for me. For exampleI converter an image to jpg. It is on on layer. I selected the flood select tool. It will not select any thing. Other suggestion just caused the program to crash. Thanks much for your time and effort.
  5. Yes, you got it. Whatever happened to the magic wand? I thought I would be able to use it to click click on an area to select the area. Then with the area enclosed selected import an image into the selected spot, then manipulate the imported image as a layer. Is that not a thing?
  6. While I appreciate the use of symbols, this approach does not seem to applicable here. I think I confused things by giving a design which gave the impression that I will just be doing repetitive modules or that I want similarity in the various modules. I have made another image which is a bit less repetitive. I plan to use various parts of the bitmapped image to fill in the blanks in the vector file. Image Fill Test-2.svg
  7. Yes it is. And the point of the inquiry is to learn how to fill any bounded space with a pattern.
  8. Yes, and I do not know how you got to that point. I have a vector of it but it does not do what yours does. For example, the parts fo not break apart.
  9. When I try that AD just crashes. I converted an image [Image Fill Test] to vector. Imported that vector file into AD I selected the fill tool but it would not select inside any of the spaces. I chose styles but also did not allow me to drop anything into a section. Other attempts, like choosing a bitmap to fill in AD, resulted in multiple crashes. Ideally I would like to select a section in any image and drop an image there. Image Fill Test.afdesign
  10. Thanks. That worked, sort of. It there a way to make adjustments later on in the project. This approach does not seem to make layers that usually keep things separrate and allow for tweaking later.
  11. AD just crashes when I try that. It crashes after I try to insert the bitmap. Tried three times same result.
  12. Thanks. Now how do I fill the selection with my own selection? The video did not cover that.
  13. I use both. Where is the flood select tool in AP? I only see the flood fill tool.
  14. I have both AD and AP. I thought it would be easier to do in AD. How would I do it in Affinity Photo?
  15. Yes. That is what I meant. I don't have a flood select tool. When I select the flood fill tool I don't see a way that leads to selecting a file to flood with. Can you help me with that?
  16. Unfortunately I still haven't been as clear as needed or I am not understanding your answer. Let's say I want to fillI in one circle in the image below, which I have converted into a png file, with a "texture" which I have created. How would I do that?
  17. I use Affinity apps to design work that I render on a laser. In order to cut images out I need to trace the outline with a red hairline. At the moment I do it in Corel Draw where the laser resides. It would save me a lot of steps/time/work if I could create the red hairline in one of the Affinity products. The ability to do this would also help make the case for getting the iPad version of Affinity P&D .
  18. I was probably lacking in clarity so please allow me to rephrase my question. I have created various moiré patterns. I want to place those various patterns within various boundaries such as those seen in this image. I would like to do it in the most efficient way possible. What would the be? Is there away to just "fill" in those patterns? Is there a way to "brush" those patterns in?
  19. The pages do not reflect what is seen in the Master Pages.
  20. I applied the Master. I manipulated the master and watched it change in real time on the selected page. The Master and page did not match.
  21. I got image below for help. I didn't see a tutorial on the "built in help". I didn't hate the tutorials but I think they could use some improvements. Since this is a new piece of software from relatively new company I don't think it is a good idea to assume it works like other software. Serif does a lot of things different from other DTP software. Because it is difficult to tell if something is not working correctly if you don't know how it supposed to work, good tutorials would help in beta testing the software.
  22. Is there a way to type in the exact location of the guides?
  23. One market that seems to be over looked is one for handmade books. If you could include templates or [good] instructional video on using your software to print these out, such a feature could find a market in schools where we are trying to teach people to find their own voice through creating and making handmade books of their work.. In my role as a South Dakota Artist in Residence, South Dakota Humanities Scholar, Board Member of the South Dakota State Poetry society and prison chaplain, I travel the state helping people to find their voice through writing, mostly poetry. I help the students make handmade books of their work. Teachers lack such software solutions so the books don’t look as good as they could. If this is of any interest to your company I would be happy to discuss it further with your design staff.
  24. An object is placed. Then when the object is moved numbers appear to let you know how far you have moved it relative to various points. However the numbers disappear too fast to process and make decisions. Is there a way to have the numbers remain until you want them to disappear or set the timing of their disappearance?
  25. Is there no way to keep the numbers from disappearing?
