  1. I'm trying to create several sites with a black stroke, but different brushes and widths. There problem is after the first one, selecting "add style from selection" does nothing. If I change the stroke color it works, if l delete the previous style, it works. I've tried with multiple brushes, colors, widths and it's always the same. Only one style allowed per stroke color.
  2. Answering my own question, at least partially: this happened when "scale stroke" was selected on the object from which the stle was created. this is still unexpected behavior,a s I would expect the initial stroke width to be the same before being resized.
  3. I'm running into a weird problem: I created a style from a shape with a brush stroke set at 8px. When I apply the style to other shapes, however, the stroke width is random, sometimes it's 6.1 px, sometimes 4.2. In my mind it should ALWAYS be the same width. what gives?
  4. IIRC, Freehand would let you paste a graphic into a text box and it would treat it as a character, so you could set size, spacing, etc. Maybe this is the feature that you'd need, no?
  5. To make a font you need a LOT of functionality, not only to draw the characters, but to set encoding, spacing, kerning, etc. I'd much rather Affinity focused on other features and left type design to other apps.
  6. Thanks for the reply! As a bit of a feature request, some things that would help in this workflow would be: be able to copy/paste a single attribute (like paste fx, but paste stroke/fill) be able to select all elements with a similar stroke/fill (I know this has been requested in the past)
  7. I have several objects with different fills. I want to apply the same stroke to them. Ideally I'd have a style I could apply that changed the stroke but left the fill as is. If I understand correctly this is not possible. What would be the best way of achieveing this then? Anything better than selecting all objects and applying the stroke at the same time?
  8. Another +1 here, hope Affinity prioritizes this!!!
  9. @MEB this is really frustrating behavior. If I have a group of objects including a text frame and scale it, I'd expect the text to resize along with it. If I have already created text with the Frame Text tool, the only solution os to manually adjust each text frame, which is cumbersome and error prone.
  10. More info: This might be an edge case, it happens when I unplug my external monitor and plug in again.
  11. This is a bit of a difficult issue to describe, so I'll try with a picture: When I open up a file, it looks more or less as it should (labels for artboards are off). When I try to select objects, though, I find the the actual object outlines seem to be elsewhere. I cannot edit the objects where they appear. This happens randomly, not always, and I have a feeling that it's related to me using an external monitor. Closing and reopening the file usually solves it I'm working on macOS high sierra 10.13.4, Edit: Zooming in and out of the file using keyboard shortcuts seems to be causing the problem. It's as though the preview zooms but not the outlines
  12. Just released a second color palette with support for Affinity's .afpalette format. It's a set of bright, happy colors to lighten up any illustration or design. Get it at creativemarket
  13. I wanted a base palette that I could use on my illustrations, with a range of shades, and highlights/shadows for each. So I made my own: It's a good starting point for illustrations, icons & UI work. There's more than 100 swatches, nicely organized. Comes in several formats, of course .afpalette included. Grab it over at CreativeMarket!
  14. I'm about to do just that. I saved my affinity images as pdf, opened in .ai (sucked to lose all the layer organization) and converted to eps/ai. I'll let you know how it goes!
