  1. I don't understand your suggestion. "Select all the white line layers in the Layers panel and drag them over the blue triangle layer (not over its thumbnail but over the area on the right) to clip them." How do I drag them OVER the triangle? Do you mean above? This is how the layers are arranged now. Is there a video showing what you mean?
  2. Yes, but I found no answers to the clipping question. Is this a feature at all, or do I have to manually shorten each white line?
  3. Do you have a way of showing me what you mean? If I select and drag them above the blue triangle nothing changes. I do want to clip off the white lines.
  4. I need to get an outline to overlap some lines in a design. How should I approach this? I have been trying to create a second triangle to sit on the first triangle, effectively sandwiching the white lines between two layers of black. But if I select the white box with a red line through it - to remove the fill color from the top triangle - the outline also disappears.
  5. You can see what happens when I turn the bottom layer on and off. Colored version is as it should be - with bottom layer off, bw version is with bottom layer on.
  6. Is this what you mean? If this is the problem, how do I fix it? I can't seem to drag the bottom layer across to make it a separate layer.
  7. The top layer of a book cover is being somehow overlaid with the color of the bottom layer. They are clearly top and bottom, and the only way I can see the right color for the cover art is by turning off the bottom layer. How do I fix this - and keep them separate? I have tried copying and pasting the original artwork into a new file, but when I put in a background, again the cover art takes the color of the background.
  8. Is there a way to set the angle of a pyramid, or any other shape, rather than having to calculate that then enter dimensions?

  10. How did you do that Alfred? It is the top of an L, which I cannot move without pushing the whole design out of place. Am I able to grab the top of the L and adjust length? Do you convert it to a node?
  11. I talked with Apple, and it was something to do with not having the correct account Apple ID. Once I'd signed in properly I could reinstall Photo with the latest version.
  12. Error message says: the file contains features from a later version of Affinity. How do I solve the problem? When we were offered a free upgrade to Version 1.6 I could only successfully upgrade on my Macbook Pro, but for some reason I could not upgrade on my iMac, which is what I use for all graphic work. Is there a way I can upgrade for free at this point? And would the upgrade allow me to open the image I need in Photo?
  13. How could I get the white line reduced in height? And how I would I ensure that the line retains the curve at the top? I cannot simply move the object down, and I can't seem to use the layers system in Designer as successfully as I can in Photo. So if there is a neat way to erase the top of the line, while retaining the curve, that may be most helpful. Thanks
  14. How do I make tiny movements of an object without typing in values? Do I hold something else down and tap arrow keys?
  15. I cannot find the update on the App Store, or the option to turn Welcome on, or any results for 'welcome' when searching help. Any other advice?
  16. Just starting with AD, and need to connect circles with lines, then repeat, to make a network image. I want to be able to move the connected circles and lines freely, as well as lock them, if that makes sense. What is the best/easiest way to do this? Any tutorial videos on this? Many thanks
  17. What is the easiest way to do this? I have tried grabbing png files, but I don't know how to separate the black arrow image from the white background. Any tips?
  18. I created an adjustment layer, but had to move its placing - and now the window/dialogue box has disappeared. How do I bring it back so I can make the actual adjustment?
  19. Thanks - this is useful. But what I want to do is to have two separate elements so I can merge them in a different way. So I need to know how to manipulate the tear shape. Or - how to separate the yin yang symbols.
  20. I have used the tear tool to create the basic shape, but am not sure how to distort this to get the right final shape. What would be the easiest way to do this?
