  1. Thanks to all for the replies. Carl I have used this method, but its a bit clumsy and time consuming, and the print from Aphoto messes up. I just thought there may have been a way to view the pasteboard in Photo that I had missed. The problem is not one that normally affect my workflow, but today I had designed ID cards for a committee of 14 and I could only get 9 of the size I wanted onto an A4 page so the other 5 I needed would go on another page for printing. So I dragged these five of the page onto the pasteboard but they become invisible until selected once again. Cheers John
  2. Good afternoon. Is it possible to view artwork dragged off the page onto the pasteboard to be viewed as in Affinity Designer. I have searched within the program but seem unable to activate a view on the pasteboard.
  3. Thank you to both, I did not realise I could use it on any Windows computer that I own. So once again thank you. Will now proceed
  4. Good evening. I understand that I can use the windows version on two machines. I am in the process of changing my laptop and would like to use Designer on my new laptop. How does one go about deregistering the program on my old laptop and then registering it on my new laptop. Sorry if it appears to be a stupid question but I just want to get everything right first time. cheers John
  5. Thanks for the reply old Bruce. It’s a bit disappointing that Sawgrass does not recognise Affinity as a supported program after all this time. There is quite a large FB group that use designer as a program for sublimation
  6. Good afternoon. Sublimating is a totally new venture for my wife and I. She will be using the Creative Studio that comes with the Sawgrass printer, whereas I would prefer to use the Affinity programs which I believe I can send to the Sawgrass print manager. Does any body else use the Windows version of the Affinity programs with a Sawgrass printer? If so could you pass on any help on how to set up best practice for this handshaking combination please. Cheers John
  7. Is there a project/canvas mirror feature within either Affinity Photo or Designer please? I have a printer setting on my Epsom inkjet to mirror an output but I wont be using this printer for Sublimation printing. I will be using a Sawgrass SG 500, at present I have not purchased it so I don't know if that facility will be within that printer settings. it would be nice to think there is a setting in Designer that I have not found yet. Cheers John
  8. Where can one find these graphics nowadays? Cheers John
  9. With everybody's help in particular R C-R's explanation I have achieved what I set out to do. Once again and thank you all. Cheers John
  10. Wow, I thought there might of been a quick answer to this that I was missing, but nevertheless thanks to all for contributing I am very grateful. Cheers John
  11. Thanks to all for the speedy replies, I will give these suggestions a try. @NotMyFault Looks like a good way forward, however sadly but i am not sure how to action this separate curves (becomes invisible, choose outline view mode, or temporary apply stroke) Sorry I am in my mid 70's and nothing come easy nowadays. Thank you for the file. Cheers John
  12. Thanks to all for the speedy replies, I will give these suggestions a try. Cheers John
  13. Good afternoon. Using affinity photo or designer I would like to give the letter of this font an individual colour/flood fill for each letter and a I cannot see a way to achieve this. At the moment it is just an outline font (Agent orange) even when I convert it to curves I cannot see a way to flood colour in the letters. I would be grateful for any solutions please. Cheers John
  14. Thank you both for your suggestions Brian will try yours first if that does not deal with it I will look at the link that Paul provided. Cheers John
  15. Good afternoon to all. Sadly when I am drawing/painting on my iPad my hand leaves paint strokes whilst I am using my apple pencil. I have tried hold the pencil in a different position but this is proving to feel unnatural, are their any sort of gloves that are available to overcome this problem? Am I alone in experiencing this? Thank you John
  16. Thanks for the reply Dan. hopefully the developers can implement this. I would rather stay with Affinity.
  17. I have just started using Affinity designer on my iPad in preference to Procreate and I cannot seem to find a mesh grid within the program. Sadly for me its a necessary function as I do quite a lot of text manipulation. I have tried using Affinity photo to achieve what I want but with limited success. Is this feature missing or is it likely to be implemented, or should I abandon Affinity designer and install Procreate?
  18. I have just purchased the Ian Barnard's "Freestyler" pack from the Affinity store and reading the PDF manual it states "Draw a black letter using either SloppyJoe or Roughneck ‘Mono’ brushes". I cannot seem to find these. Can anybody point me in the right direction please. Update, I found these in the installed brush pack. Cheers John
  19. Thank you both will have a look at these to try. Cheers John
  20. I am creating a map in Affinity designer and I have several areas of wasteland that I wish to put a 45 degree hashed style in. sadly i cannot for the life of me see how to create such a style. or has anybody created any hatched styles? Anybody any suggestions on how to achieve this please?
  21. EmT thank you, I've been using the program like forever and there it was staring me in the face. Solved the issue, thanks for your speedy help. Cheers John
  22. I seem to inadvertently detached the tools toolbar and for the life of me I cannot see how to reattach the toolbar. Any help would be welcome. thank you John
  23. Thank you Paul. It was not even in my thoughts to use and look in the Export to PDF option, I was looking everywhere in the print menu and the programs preferences. It was obvious once you pointed it out so thank you. Cheers John
