  1. Perhaps I’m stupid or I have forgotten but how do I add a point in the exact middle between two other points on a line/shape? I’m sure AD is smart enough to be able to do this (it’s so smart with other things)? Specifically, I have a circle, and that has four points by default, and I want to add points in between, so that I have eight points with equal spacing.
  2. Actually, I just found this tutorial for vector shapes along a path and this gave me the idea that you could create a diagonal line, make it a symbol and copy/paste that symbol inside the text frame on the path as often as you like. Then you can change one symbol instance’s line properties (stroke width, line length etc.) and it will change for all symbols.
  3. This seems to have been addressed with a recent update (although I don’t even remember whether/when I updated); thanks!
  4. I realize it has been a while since you posted this. Did updating the program to the latest version fix your issue? I’ve had random crashes, too (on Mac). I suppose it’s one of those teething problems with new software that will be addressed eventually.
  5. I haven’t seen any but I can’t speak for anyone but myself. I guess Affinity isn’t popular enough (yet) that agencies provide proprietary file formats. However, if an EPS is done right it should support layers and I’ve layered EPS files that I can open with AD without any issues, likewise for AI files. It’s only files from very old versions of Illustrator that AD can’t open.
  6. A workaround for this (at least for the straight edges) would be to use the power duplicate function and then optionally space the lines equally with the alignment tool. For the corners I haven’t figured out a solution yet. But if it’s that simple of a shape you might be able to adjust that manually by rotating the single lines.
  7. Yeah, the measurement tool seems very limited at the moment. Perhaps that is something they improve in future but at the moment you can only measure for yourself and not make it an object that can be exported.
  8. Ah, right, placing an image in a document is different than opening it itself. I didn’t consider that. FYI: If you want the image as layers/group inside the current document, double click the placed image (as you did when editing) and copy all the layers from the placed image into the current document. You can then delete the embedded image and work with the objects directly.
  9. Dimensions of digital images are typically shown in pixels because that’s how display resolution works (and digital images are only shown on computer displays in the general sense, therefore physical measurements aren’t applicable). That shouldn’t change the printed size, though.
  10. Being a German speaker, I can barely make out what you wrote in Dutch but I can’t answer in Dutch, so I will do it in English: Are you asking about a specific application (Designer/Photo/Publisher) or in general? Here is how Gaussian blur is done in AD: gaussian_blur.mov
  11. Hi and welcome, I downloaded the account-badge icon and opened it in Affinity Designer. You should be able to select the object and then in the Color panel choose any color you like. colors.mov
  12. I’m able to export a layered EPS file. AI is not possible because it’s a proprietary file format. If AfterEffects can deal with SVG, that would also be an option. But EPS is definitely possible. NB: You can download any Affinity application and test it for 30 days for free without any obligation to see whether it works for you.
