  1. I was looking to export my design to print each pantone color on individual film sheets through Accurip but the print menu seems to be lacking that feature. I don't see an option to print separations (instead of a composite image). Is there a setting I need to adjust or edit in order to do this?

    Converting to Curves Issue

    thanks for the explanation - that helps me make more sense of it all
  3. I used a number of different style vector brushes when I inked a design in Affinity Designer. When I went to convert the brush strokes to curves, only the solid standard brush strokes were converted and all specialized or non-standard brushes were gone.... I backtracked and selected a single stroke made with a non-standard vector brush and went to convert to curves or expand... and it was grayed out. Is there a way to convert these types of brushes to fills? I need to be able to use my vector line work made in Affinity Designer in other apps as vectors.... Is there a solution to this? Thanks
  4. I'm hoping an eraser tool and blob brush are on the eventual horizon for Affinity Designer both on desktop and Ipad. So much of my designing involves a painterly approach with adding to existing vectors with the blob tool and cutting away parts from them with the eraser.
  5. He might be referring to a tapered end to the brush stroke

    How to erase a part of a vector object?

    I really appreciate the point you make here - that Affinity is working to master a non-destructive method of operation. I was just testing out the stylus back side eraser to cut away at parts of vectors the way I would do in Illustrator with a real eraser tool... I'm all for having a non-destructive process (I'm seeing the "erasing" I am doing is merely a masking of the vector from sight), so long as there is a way to commit to the edits for a final output. So from my understanding and borrowing from my current process in Illustrator, Once I have erased away the parts I dont need, I can expand everything and commit the changes and permanently erase what was behind the masks in order to output for use in other vector apps or programs that use vector files. I would try this now, but there's a major glitch with Affinity Designer's "Divide Shapes" that causes it to freeze

    [AD] Vector persona eraser tool

    I know this quote is from 2014, but I still appreciate you sharing some of the thinking behind why certain tolls are not yet implemented. Would this snag with the eraser tool apply equally to what Illustrator calls the blob tool? When I design, I use different tools based on the kind of design I'm making. Sometimes its a technical pen tool task, other times I'm more free with the brush tool, but there are plenty of times I've used the blob tool in conjunction with the eraser tool to get what I'm looking for. Anxious to be able to have that level of control over my vectors in AD

    rubber erase tool

    Really hoping a blob tool and an eraser tool are on the horizon. Didn't see it on the list

    Designer hangs and freezes on "union"

    Is this still an issue with Designer? I went to expand the strokes and then hit "divide shapes" and it still freezes... I included a screen shot. I know divide shapes works just fine on the ipad version... but I assume we're still waiting for a fix on the desktop? Loving Affinity - just not this bug
  10. Looking forward to a smoothing tool like MEB mentioned!

    Affinity Designer for iPad timeline?

    As anxious as I was for it's release, I'm super glad they took their time and made it right to the best of their ability instead of rushing a release that would need an immediate fix, etc...

    Affinity Designer for iPad timeline?

    Thanks for reading and getting back to me on that. It's disappointing to hear but I understand you guys are doing all you can.
  13. I'm an Affinity fan 100% - have both apps on both computer platforms as well as the iOS Photo version. Affinity is the future and like everyone else, I'm anxious for the Publisher app and the iOS Designer version to be released. We've been teased with videos of both and the timelines given for release or betas seem to extend infinitely. I'm most anxious for the iOS designer app to be released... we were told (or at least rumors) that it would be out in the fall of 2017, then early 2018 - now we're at WWDC where Affinity was showcasing their iOS Photo last year.... one of the Affinity main guys was asked about when the app drops live and he mentioned really soon... but here we are at the logical event it would appear, and there's no app, no word on anything... I get Affinity Designer iOS is a small team and there's a lot of pressure and work to get done... its frustrating to be awaiting a product that will revolutionize how I get to work and to see the release get pushed back month after month with little word on updates or anything from Affinity. Can we get an update? A sense of hope as to when we'll get to start using a beta at least? thanks for all you guys do
  14. Thanks1 This helped me get them installed properly. I was confused too - especially when it was telling me it was not an affinity file!
