  1. Oh, duh...snapping! Well, I take heart from your "Eternal beginner" moniker, Psenda. I don't work much in the pixel persona in Affinity Designer. Maybe I should branch out and try some new things!
  2. Drawing a rectangle over the image was what I used to try to do, but I couldn't get the size to constrain properly so it was hit or miss. I must be missing something on selecting on one layer and then clicking into another one, because I can only get it to copy the original image to the new layer. Is that what you meant, v_kyr? I did try this, and it works a good bit better better for my purposes: 1. Cmd-J to copy the selected layer (which only has the image on it). 2. Convert new layer image to curves (Cmd-Enter). 3. Click to apply a solid color to the vectored image.
  3. This seems like it should be a no brainer, but I can't figure it out. What I want to do: 1. Select an image. 2. Copy the size/shape to a new layer, without the image. Currently, I have to: 1. Select the image. 2. Write down the W and D because my old brain won't remember it. 3. Open a new layer. 4. Select the rectangle tool. 5. Drag a rectangle. 6. Adjusting the W and D to match the original image size. Surely there is an easier way to do this. Can anyone help me?
  4. I had a bad crash on my early 2013 Mac along with my Time Machine backup failure and essentially have had to start over with a clean install (Mojave). I've managed to get the system restored and Affinity Publisher and Affinity Photo installed, but the download of Affinity Designer from the App Store just hangs and won't download. I've tried everything, including the last resort: walking away and sleeping on it! I don't know if I dreamed it or not, but it seems to me that in the distant past I had to get support for this same kind of thing with the App Store. How do I get Affinity Des
  5. My pCloud location login takes me to the wrong account. I cannot access any of my resources. I need to know ASAP how to revise login info from Affinity for iPad apps...or, if not possible, how to delete a Location. My new iPad is worthless to me if I cannot do this. Please help!
  6. Ah, thank you, DM1. I called myself looking for it there but I must have missed it. It still would be very nice to have a gesture-based way to do this!
  7. And while we're at it, how does one edit one's forum settings one is automatically notified of replies to one's posts? I forgot to set it to Notify above.
  8. I set up my pCloud log-in with a different email address from what I use for my Affinity iPad software, and when I first set up a Location to pCloud on my iPad, I was not able to access the files I needed. I went to pCloud and shared the folders with my Affinity email address, but in Affinity iPad there does not seem to be a way to change the log-in information for the account so it logs in with my Affinity email and not the original pCloud account email address. After searching in vain for how to change the log-in for this Location in Affinity iPad, I thought I'd just delete it and add it aga
  9. I'm here to ask another question and have been reading through all the questions to see if it's already been answered. In the case the OP posted, the way I would handle this is to convert the type to curves, then space the individual objects (letters) using the alignment tools, then tweak if needed. Which leads to my question: On AD iPad, how do you convert type to curves? I do this very, very frequently, and that desktop Cmd-Return gets used a heck of a lot. Is there an equivalent for the iPad, preferably gesture-activated?
  10. As far as export possibilities are concerned, I would dearly hope we can export to the Kindle format, retaining CSS styling without hard-coding in HTML. We publish poetry books and have to do some custom styling to get the formatting to handle correctly in the digital version. It's simple once it's set up, but it doesn't lend itself well to typical off-the-shelf prose formats. We always have to tweak the actual CSS. For example, I have a style called "NewLine" that is applied to the entire document (like a body style), coupled with "NewStanza" and "NewDoubleStanza" styles that handle thin
  11. They added a PDF export that flattens. It's the one that has (Flatten) at the end of it. I have had no difficulty since then.
  12. Well, duh! I was watching Affinity Designer tutorials this morning, something I must make more time for, and discovered the Transparency Tool with balloons tutorial. And there is the solution to my problem of not being able to feather the edges of photos to blend in with color-matched backgrounds. Once I get skilled with this tool, it will give me far more control than Illustrator's simple edge-feathering tool has. But the Elliptical type doesn't quite work the way I'd like it to, being that I often need to feather the edges of square or rectangular shapes. Linear works well, but then I ha
