  1. I prefer not to have unrealistic expectations based on new features. However, the ability to manipulate fills in vectors like this one makes me feel ecstatic and reminds me of my childhood. I am already envisioning the endless possibilities that we can achieve using this feature alone!
  2. I would like to express my gratitude to all of you for taking the time and being patient in assisting me with this task. I am pleased to share the final results of the client printout for their business. Without your help, I would not have been able to continue with this project since the company has been using Adobe for a long time, and my proposal to use Affinity was not well-received. However, I remained positive that I could achieve this with Affinity, and your assistance made it possible. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I successfully exported the file entirely in vector format, without any raster images, and with a cut line layer. This achievement with Affinity disproves their doubts.
  3. My situation today. I'm glad I don't need those other apps. I just bought Super Photo Upscaler, so I can drop to the icon and enlarge the picture in a second.
  4. Good to know. I was also researching online and most professionals choose Topaz over Photoshop or Lightroom.
  5. I use Super Photo Upscaler. Check it out when you get a chance. Cheap and Powerful! It is a Mac Only app.
  6. I have been successfully using Photo to enlarge images, even for poster files and billboard arts. However, a friend recently recommended Topaz AI, claiming it to be superior in quality. Although I do not have Topaz, I am curious if anyone here has used it and can provide insight on whether it is worth the investment. Thank you in advance.
  7. Get Art Text. Works great with Affinity Designer.
  8. I don't know what is going on? Everything is checked and nothing's missing. I can't export this PDF unless I assign all text to be curved? Why?
  9. It seems like you may be seeking attention and unfortunately, we may not be able to assist with your issue regarding resolution with Affinity Designer and raster picture exports. You could try creating your artwork in Designer and then selecting 'edit in Photo' from the menu bar to increase the resolution @2 and adjust the black levels to 100% before exporting the file. If this doesn't work, you may want to continue using Corel Draw or consider Adobe, which currently has a deal available. Keep in mind that the most important thing is to use the app that best fits your needs. As someone who has worked remotely for three agencies using non-Adobe apps, I can attest that it's possible to be successful without Adobe.
  10. As a commercial graphic designer, having certain features is essential. However, Adobe Photoshop suffered from the "Swiss army knife" syndrome, which caused a lot of damage. Illustrator is also headed down that path with features like 3D and basic animation. Fortunately, Affinity takes a different approach by focusing on keeping their apps performing at their best, rather than trying to please everyone. Currently, I am using the beta apps, and there are many upcoming features that will greatly enhance productivity. I recommend trying Art Text for any special needs, as I have been using it for years and find it wonderful. It also works seamlessly with Affinity. Have a great day!
  11. Well that stroke is the one they use to lead the cutter. (If you’re talking about the one by itself.) Can I just add a millimeter? If you’re referring to strokes on figures, then yes, I need to get rid of all of them. Where? Please let me know those about those images. It supposed to be all curves. Maybe that’s what’s going on!
  12. Do you think if I try to eliminate the gradient of that logo I will be able to have it in all curves?
  13. Here's the file, if anyone can find a solution it will be great. Download file here: https://d.pr/f/BiiEea
  14. I need to export a logo made in Designer in PDF (to change the extension to .ai), so the print shop can have the Adobe document to cut the sticker design accordingly. The think is that some parts are converted into images, and it needs to be curved as the designer document. How can I set the export to PDF, so the document keeps the curves as intended? Thanks in advance. So, I guess my question is... How can I export a PDF with all curves intact and nothing converted in images?
  15. That's a number one rule for Beta testing. I like to bring the scenario to real-life situations, so the struggle of the issue can be also part of the problem found. None of my works are done in the Beta versions, but I do like to recreate them in Beta to see what will happens. Like this example. The only way to save the work was uninstalling and re-installing the app. All my originals are saved in the stable version. To be honest, if I try the beta just for trying I will never encounter any real issue, that's why I recreate a real project. Hope I can explain myself well with this comment. English is hard.
  16. I have a client that would like to see designs on pictures, and I was wondering if I can create a document that I can just add pictures, and it will automatically add them to the mockup. I watched a YouTube video about a guy using Affinity Photo V1 showing how to open a Photoshop Mockup file with Affinity Software and I wanted to know if that can be done from scratch as well.
  17. That is why I said "My Mistake Obviously". I realized that before your reply. What you thought I was referring to?
  18. As always, we ended up mixing topics and the main issue got lost in translation. 1. My post was referring to opening a file that was created by the Beta, and not being able to open it with the same version. 2. My off-topic opinion was related to the fact that the beta app version only allowed the beta-made document to be opened, leaving me with a useless document. In my logic and based on yours too, higher numbers leave lower numbers obsolete. However, if I apply that logic literally (that was my mistake, obviously) a stable version is an Alpha and even if the Beta is 12.1 it still is lower than Alpha 1.0, so it must be at least 12.1. So, for some reason I was expecting the stable version to always open the beta documents. I thought you were talking about my real problem and not about my off-topic opinion. That was why we tangled here about being able and not able to do a thing. Thanks for the explanation.
