  1. Thanks for this guys. In this instance I've just used transparency tool in Designer mode of Publisher. But I can see, either will work. I think I had too much red wine last night!!
  2. I'm having a moment! I'm trying to apply a gradient to a picture. That is to fade out the picture to the layer underneath it. It's from left to right etc. Left being the photograph in full opacity, fading to the under layer colour. Direction of fade isn't important, for this, I just can't remember how to do it!
  3. Hi Guys. Has any form of 'feathering' mode been added to Affinity? The type of 'feather' that is available in Illustrator? When I used Illustrator I used it to feather and fade picture borders etc. I know there was talk of adding a similar feature, but am unsure if this has happened. Thanks!
  4. Ah Chris, thank you for this. Who'd have thought to go to the OS preferences? The tool size didn't bother me, I just thought it was something that wasn't working. Many thanks again for your time.
  5. Hi Guys. I've been using Designer on Mac for a few years now. Still amazed by the speed etc when compared to Illustrator which was my tool of choice for YEARS! Designer does everything I need basically. HOWEVER - I do seem to have bugs and wondered if they were common, or just 'me' related; Designer refuses to open last document. It always starts with the blank screen and I have to either to open an existing document or create a new one. Likewise, changing the tool sizes in preferences just doesn't work. And just the default size remains. There may be other such tiny bugs that have existed for a while but these are the ones I come across daily. These are not huge issues, just rather little niggles. For info, I am using Designer on a MBP fully loaded and running 10.13.2 - I have used all variations of OSX with Designer and the bugs here started with the upgrade to Designer 1.6.0 . It was fine in the previous version. Any thoughts?
  6. Its what I got it for. Its perfect for short story book covers. I used Illustrator until it went all subscription on us. And with art boards, different versions of the same. I don't need anything else. Bring on Publisher!
  7. Well, yeah, its checked. Actually its checked on default. But I unchecked and rechecked it, but still have to open last files manually. Maybe its an OSX thing?
  8. It used to be the case that last worked on file(s) would open with the launch of Designer. But now, even though that option is ticked in the Preferences, I have to open manually. That is on both my 5k iMac running 10.11.6 and my MBP running the same. Am I missing something guys?
  9. Ha Ha wow, and there was me thinking I was breaking new ground with the ideo of iOS versions. How close are they to release?
  10. I dont suppose there is any chance, even the smallest chance of light versions of Designer and Photo for iOS? I know I know, stupid idea. but the latest ipads do give opportunity to carry on work after the laptop has been put away for the night and the desktop has been closed down.
  11. ..... I'm just about to swap out my mid 2012 MacBook Pro for a new one. My question is, do I have to de-activate my copy of Affinity (both photo and designer) on the old machine before installing them on the new one? Please tell me I don't have to buy whole new licenses? Thanks in anticipation Steve aka TheRogue
  12. You had control of 9 workstations and you couldn't / wouldn't save / export JPEG yourself? Wow. I'm speechless.
  13. I'm no expert. I have both and think probably its similar to having Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Designer is vector, Photo is pixel. Like I said, I'm no expert but that's how I see it. The sets of tools are very different.
