  1. Several times this topic has been posted, but we have no answer yet. Is a basic thing. Now is confusing for lack of information in the dialog window.
  2. Hi! Thanks for your endless efforts, but I am missing something or it is not possible to replace a color for another? 1.You can edit, change the name, delete a color and other things, but is NOT possible to replace it for another color. By the way, when you select a color in the palette (in this case Global color Cyan at 100%) and choose Create color chord -> Tints, Shades or Tones, never is created 9 colors in increments of 10%: 10, 20, 30% or so on... 2. When I select a object with Cyan 100% and edit it from the color palette as a tint and I choose 40% if I choose from the contextual menu Add to Swatches from fill, when I change the global color, the tinted color created not change. So, how I can create a tint of a global color and edit when I wanted the global color and the changes are applied to its shadings? 3. And about the name of a color: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/22569-image-updating-and-color-naming/?hl=krollian#entry106345
  3. Ok. In FreeHand is not necessary to select the letter of the Text Tool. Thanks :)
  4. Hello I have several text boxes one behind another in a document. In FreeHand I can select a text box that is behind of another and at that moment the element is active so I can edit the text and make changes. It is not possible in Affinity Designer? I can do Option + Clic and select the element behind, but I can not edit the text. When I tried, the box text goes is deselected and the most front box goes active. Selecting the text box via Layers panel comes to similar results. Thanks.
  5. It would be fantastic that an artboard can not occupy the space of another artboard.
  6. I totally agree. There are not enough info en the resize dialog window. Please, aadd more info to see the old and the new resolution and size of the document.
  7. ¡Problem solved! An artboard was exactly behind another. Thanks a lot! I thought that an artboard can not be touch another one.
  8. Here is the link to the Affinity Designer document and the PDF exported: https://www.dropbox.com/s/sg305xq924f2nxw/Affinity%20Designer%20Bad%20PDF%20Export.zip?dl=0 Thanks
  9. I created a document in Affinity Designer, drop some images in it. I deleted some pages, created some more artboards, renamed all the 17 pages and finally when I export the document as PDF generates a 18 pages PDF. Tried several times, hours and a day after and the result of exporting the document is the same: It generates a page more.
  10. Wonderful book. Purchased, but... Habrá una versión en español?
  11. We are approaching MAS publication!! Good work, guys! :D
  12. Hello! Good job as always. Great congrats. But... What about this? I would like to apply a color directly to a gray or bitmap image. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/21035-apply-a-colour-to-a-gray-image
  13. Hi! Just a basic question. Could I use the Pen tool to make a silhouette for clipping an image, and export the image with the cutout of the silhouette to EPS or native format to place in on another application to be able to change the background every time I want? An example could be a frog with the moon as a background.
  14. The magic word (and this is similar like the old feature in FreeHand) is PASTE INSIDE. Select everything you want, Command + cut, select a polygon and Paste Inside. Voilà! Designer will create a layer with each pasted inside polygon. You can see each element of the layer, select it, delete, it, edit it and so on. I have done so many vector logos and designs that for me is something natural. Affinity designer has for me the most clean interface, power and flexibility of all the popular design and vector applications. I was fed up for the treatment Adobe had with all the users of FreeHand. Now Adobe says Illustrator will be re-optimized and so on... Well, Illustrator WILL NOT change all the old and strange routines and ways it works because a lot of users will be kicked out. Search on the web about FreeFreeHand. Legions of FreeHand users had purchase Affinity Designer. What can I say? Hey, the reason is that Affinity Designer rocks! Personally if I must pay every new big version for me will be a real pleasure.
  15. Thank, R C-R. I have Affinity Designer from the first Betas. But I mean that the trick is about have a portion of the image, not manipulate a layer. It is generally a convention from a long time ago in graphic application on Macintosh. If you have something selected, dragging that element or a portion of that element using Option duplicates that selection and is ”floating” ready to use. The original element remains in its place intact.
