  1. Thank you for your help. I have a 10 day trial copy of Affinity Designer, which I believe will be perfect for my needs IF I can ever get my head around new tricks. I can draw the rectangle and select the Fill Tool, however, if I press G my computer makes a really weird clicking noise, just like it does if something is resting on the keys. So that's not an option for me. Dragging the fill tool into the rectangle does nothing, I can't see any colour there, even though I've selected a colour. I find the gradients very simple in FS, and want this to be just as simple. I'm going to watch the video half a dozen times and see if I can get it sorted. Many thanks. I prefer to watch the video's so it will be a big help. Happy New Year to all.
  2. Just discovered Affinity as I'm searching for a more affordable option for my business than Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. All of the company computers are Apple Mac's and Affinity seems perfect. Currently I design our product labels using PS5. The background of the label is simply a single colour on both sides with white in the middle, but made using the gradient tool, so that it gives the appearance of wrapping around the container. I just can't figure out how to use the gradient tool in Affinity. Is there anyone who can kindly point me in the right direction please? I hope so, because I want to buy Affinity but need to be certain I can use it before I do.
