  1. Just so I understand the goal, KCD-branding, you are trying to have the text on the right side match the one on the left? It looks like the text on the left side is aligned right, and the text on the right side is aligned left. And it looks like there is also a difference in indent between the two. If you right align the second text box, and then increase the indent, does this work for what you need?
  2. I'm sorry. I totally missed the date. I got an email notification of this thread, which is why I assumed it was active.
  3. I was thinking of suggesting what MEB suggested before he beat me to the punch, but as Walt.farrell pointed out, the goal may not be as clear as I may have thought. I am sorry you are frustrated. If you are still looking into solving the issue, then just to clarify, is this what you are trying to do? You are looking into having the bottom half of the female character smoothly fade out. Something like on a Star Wars cover. Is this correct first of all?
  4. Hi there, I was checking the forums, the online documentation, and official tutorial videos for the answer, but I cannot find the auto-scroll feature. I am looking into disabling auto-scroll, so when I click on an object, the nested layer location is not expanded. I like to have my layers nicely organized, so this is counter-intuitive for my style. Do bare with me, because I am still new to the iPad version, but so far, I think it's great.
  5. So you are trying to have the noise be maintained on export. What filetype are you trying to export your design as? And were there any other options that you toggled during export?
  6. It appears that you are outlining an image that was converted to a pixel layer. Pixels are expected to have bumpy edges with an outline effect. To resolve this, maybe you can trace a vector shape from behind (not visible), and outline that instead.
  7. Good old smarty pants of the forum. Haha. Nothing wrong with laughter. Well as long as there is no date as to when updates are expected, then we can assume that all are unexpected. And I respect your opinion. For me, when I realized that the latest commercial release did not bring any new features, I did notice that they heavily got involved with bug fixes. And I do recall that the amount of bugs were indeed frustrating. But I'm just telling you what I noticed. It's what ever works for you.
  8. I am certainly interested to see what progress Designer makes in future updates. In my opinion, Photo and Publisher have a lot more developed and seem to be more of a primary focus. And of course, I can understand that the suite as a whole can get piled up with other priorities. I get it. Just saying that as a lover of the first Affinity application, I can agree with the points in the original post, and I look forward to any unexpected surprises.
  9. If not paid careful attention to the settings of Flood Fill Tool before making flood fills, the program can take a long time to respond because of accidentally covering up the whole document. I had to force quit the program about 4 or 5 times. For example, there can be pixels very close together but with gap space you care barely notice. There can be a source setting saying "Current Layer" whereas I may forget to set it to "Layers Beneath." And I can some times be on the wrong layer. So if I overlook one of these options, the program stops responding, and then the next best thing to do is to restart it, and that can really get frustrating. And so an idea that I thought of is to have a dialogue that pops up that can detect how large the flood fill will be after an action is made, and it can say something like, "This action may take a long time for the program to respond. Do you wish to continue?" What do you think of this idea? Joke:
  10. My apologies. It appears that I am late to respond to this tag. So at the time of me posting that, that was originally the case. However, Designer 1.7 introduced the "Sculpt" mode for the Pencil Tool. This can do what you are requesting in suggestion 1 and 2. For 3, it is a little tricky since you do not close a path the same way as in Illustrator. You have to kind of redraw both ends as you connect them for them to close properly. And for 4, yes, I agree that can be frustrating. There may not be a way to reduce nodes in a fashion that does not reform the shape too much, but there are two things I can suggest. One: You can start off drawing the shapes with the brush stabilizers. They allow a drawing mode in which you pull on a string to reduce shaky hand movements. It may or may not give you the result you are looking for, but it does give more precision, which I like. Two: After the shapes are drawn, you can use the "Transform Mode" of the Node Tool to transform nodes; not shapes. This means resizing, skewing, repositioning, and rotating. I understand this does not reduce nodes, but what this can do is map out your ideal shape before you start removing them. Seeing how we are talking about the Pencil Tool, I hope it is not invading your topic to explain what I want. Something that I personally want more than anything for that tool is a way to toggle post-correction. I would like a feature that allows the user to decide how much a line is corrected after drawn or even have the ability to toggle it off.
  11. It's uncommon, but I personally find it very beneficial that way. I like to "start off" with the right size so I can see beforehand how it would match the design. But hey, everyone is different. 😊
  12. Oh thanks for the tip. That makes sense. I was assuming that checking off that option would apply to the whole object but apparently each appearance. For some reason, that did not occur to me. Yeah I feel like some default or "Apply to all" feature would benefit in this case. A grouped object can have a lot to uncheck. But hey, I think this gives me an idea of what to request for in another topic for Designer's new "Select Object" and "Select All" feature; since the staff said they are open to requests in that area.
  13. I make my icons with two strokes. In the Appearance panel, the one on top is 0.5 (aligned to center), and the one below is 0.7 (aligned to outside). Now depending on the visual, I may have to enlarge or shrink the icons, and so I check off "Scale with object" to maintain the proper stroke ratio. However, this only affects the bottom stroke. The one that was 0.5 does not update visually. Additionally, the new line width of both strokes are not displayed in the Appearance panel even though the bottom does update in size. So one stroke updates visually, but neither updates as displayed in the panel.
  14. I'm not sure I fully understand the question, but if you're looking into getting started, there should be a website from the manufacture where you download the drivers for the type of tablet you have. Setting up the tablet and then downloading the drivers are usually the steps to start using it. Does downloading from the page help? https://www.xp-pen.com/download-58.html
  15. Yeah it looks like the window that is shown are scan results. And good point on the scroll bars. I wonder if there is a present issue after all that it just not within scroll view like you said. I guess we'll wait to see what the OP has to say.
  16. Rodsal23, it's a little confusing seeing how you are unable to run the program by installing the Aero theme that Alfred suggested, yet getting dialogs that there is no issue present. So I have two questions. 1) Did you get any dialogs prior to the ones you showed us? 2) Do you get a different result by enabling the Window Manager first and then following the same steps? (I ask because of the dialogue in the second screenshot, and I wonder if nothing is detected because of an older operating system verses an updated download. Could that be possible you think that older security may not identify it?)
  17. Which program are you using? Because I believe there is a different option of either nesting adjustments or creating new layers depending on the one you're using. As for your actual question, yes. Unlike the stack order of the layers, the adjustments that are on the bottom are applied first and then the top. You can test this with two different "Recolor" adjustments on the same layer with two different colors. Red on the bottom will show before blue on the top. Also, you can change the settings in the Assistant Manager to have adjustments created as their own layers rather than nested inside others if you wish.
  18. You know, I had an issue with this for 1.7, so I backed everything up this time around, but it appears I didn't have to do that. 1.8 transferred everything over without the need of me having to reimport everything. I don't know what went differently. I can't guarantee the same for others though.
  19. You bring up a really good point. Currently, I don't think there is any way to work around this. It would be a good idea for the team to implement a horizontal list of layer thumbnails of the selected layers to show on the top of the Layer Effects window. Then there is a "Turn off/on" button for each and a "Turn off/on" for all. But no matter what is checked off, the effects below the thumbnails will still be checked on as a way to keep track of its effect history. Right now, there is really no way of remembering.
  20. Sorry for the late reply. To turn them back on, you do the same thing you did to turn them off as long as you don't close the document or anything. For me, I still have the same settings when I turn them back on. Do you not?
