  1. When creating a palette from the current document the colors are incorrect. Obviously they are generated from the screen display and not from the objects in the document. So it is impossible to create correct colors of some vector objects by this function. Instead the color is correct if you create an empty palette, select a single object and click add color or global color. AD 1.7.2 OSX 10.9.11
  2. Hi MEB, okay, thanks, layer with mask should finally work like the workaround I do now. That is -- as you say --- making a duplicate of the original layer, creating a refined selection, and then create a mask from the section and assigning the mask to the layer duplicate. (Btw, using layer with mask comes from working with PSH where you get the desired result. But I am now mostly on Affinity and like it very much.)
  3. Just fiddling around a bit. The result depends on the amount of Smooth. But anyway, the result isn't what it should be in my opinion. See three screenshots: 1 Original 2 New layer with mask 3 same layer as 2 with mask off
  4. It is maybe the problem that I saw in early versions of AP as well in the newest. When making a selection refine and choose layer w/ mask it cuts out the slection with a really ugly pixeled outline which is masked. But if you want to alter the mask you have a big problem adding something again. See screenshot where the mask is off. Carsten
  5. Hi there, did anyone here try the WebP PlugIn for Photoshop (until CS5/6)? http://telegraphics.com.au/sw/product/WebPFormat In my Affinity Photo Desktop (1.6.7) it is not recognized :-(
  6. haha! Thats obviously why nothing is equal to something but in this case plus transparency ...
  7. I have a business card with 2mm bleed in one document on two artboards. On both is a thin line going in the bleed. Now, when I export a PDF-X with export all is fine. When I export with Export Persona the line on page 2 is cut at the end format and so is the background. But the bleed is not ignored: end format is still correct. In the Export Persona I created 2 identical slices for page1 and page 2. I made a demo, see in ZIP attached. bleed.pdf is fine, S1.pdf is fine, S2.pdf is cut. If it’s not a bug, what could be wrong?

  8. Thanks, Chris_K, I didn’t realise the difference of drawn and object related created slice. Mostly used direct export. Just got it now! Thanks again.
  9. Not for me. ctrl + click doesn’t open the dialog (OSX 10.9). AP crashes on changing any UI preferences. No plugins installed on AP.
  10. What is the status of this feature? Would be very nice to have.
  11. When changing the line-height in a text the position of the object goes wrong to -500 and more ... Try to reproduce bug (also see screenshots* and af file): write 2 lines of text (only by click, not by defining a box) make the second line bigger standard line-height chain ratio of text box use top menu line-height slider and go down text box Y goes down so text gets out of canvas Y changes on every rollover event on the line-height drop-down menu Only works correctly with %. OSX 10.9.5 | Affinity Designer 1.4.2 * Cannot get the drop-down menu cause it always disappears on screenshot
  12. Text at the top is not clickabkle when the box below. See attached example. Affinity Designer 1.1.2; OSX 10.9.5 text activation bug.afdesign
  13. I think you should vectorize the text so that it will scale like the other vector elements and you are no longer in need to have the font active. Before doing this, make a copy with editable text for changes. BTW Logos often look very simple but creating one that is good across several media, different sizes and contexts belongs to the highest level art of design. All the best Carsten
  14. Hello, in the export persona there is the possibility of 1x, 2x, 3x export for different resolutions. This works well with imported high resolution images that fit to the highest needed resolution. But when I add a layer and paint something i.e. with a soft brush, this layer causes a low resolution warning. This is really strange. Is there a way to define that the layer can be painted in 3x resolution? Or is there a workaround? Thanks for any idea, elk
  15. Figured it out: When marking 1x-2x-3x BEFORE painting the resolution is ok and no warning appears.
  16. Just move the point with the node tool until the second is marked. Did you mean that?
  17. I have the same issue. To me it seems that it is different if you imort the image, drag and drop it or open it and copy/paste the image content. Have to figure this out. BTW, as an experienced PSH user AF has some strange aspects although most is really awesome.

    Freehand files

    There are some interesting news about the ability of running Freehand under Mavericks at the FreehandForum: http://freehandforum.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2067 http://www.freehandforum.org/news.html (I hope it is ok to post this here - please delete if its not) Btw. I worked a lot with FH since version 3 and also with AI and always loved the way freehand worked. I will have a look if I can find some interesting files that I can submit.
  19. Silhouette was an outstanding tool for that. It was last available as AI plugin. Maybe the developers of that great thing can get involved ...
  20. npaust, this is a feature for a pixel-based app. While Affinity is vector-based. I did not think about your idea but think this could be perfectly realized with photoshop or another imageeditor. And automated by a small script or action.
