  1. Hey everyone, yes I was thinking of both the blend and contour tools from XDP, which as Hakoo mentioned I believe use the same technology. I no longer have my home based publication and my graphic design has become a hobby when I have time off from my 40 hour a week job. and I am finding that Affinity is fitting my needs better and when I need things like contours and blends I still have a version of XDP
  2. This appears to be a good beginning to a contour tool, but not really all that useful yet. I would love to see a setting for multiple contours where we could type in a number and get that many contours around the object. Also it would be useful to be able to select each contour set the colour of each contour individually and different from the object. and perhaps baking ( which is pretty much just converting to curves unless I'm missing something?) could have some settings to allow either the current behaviour or the creation of multiple objects ie the original object and the contours each rendered as separate vector objects.
  3. The links to the mixup market site appear to be broken edit I finally got it to work sorry
  4. I have another workaround that works without needing to downgrade but it is a bit of a pain. It got me through what I wanted to do for now. TextureMate .com has a little app that is free called AbrMate. AbrMate can open most .abr files and allow you to convert them to png files which can then be used to recreate the brushes in Affinity as Affinity brushes. If you are needing only a few brushes this is Ok But I would still like to find out how to downgrade.
  5. Why not have a general questions forum and separate apps forum Affinity Questions Affinity on Windows - General questions related to all apps - Designer questions - Photo questions - Publisher questions And the same set up for Mac.
  6. here is a video I did a while back that shows how to create a gold foil effect in Photo. By changing the colours I used you can get a nice rose gold look. And in 1.7 you can use the procedural texture live filter to adjust the foil look after the lighting has been applied! oops the link to the video might help!
  7. Thanks everyone. Once the other apps have an edit in publisher link it will be an amazing work flow
  8. Will we be able in the future to open a document in one of the other apps and then transfer it to publisher? For example If I open a raw photo in photo, develop it and then want to put it into a publisher document I can find no way to do it other than exporting it and then opening it in Publisher. Seems Studio link is only a one way link. I'm kind of disappointed. At the very least is an "Edit in or Send to Publisher" menu item planned for the other apps?
  9. When I try to go to the site I just get a page that says X5 tutorials no way to log in or view anything else. What is happening? is the site being discontinued?
  10. I created this cute little penguin character in Designer. He started out as some basic shapes and I converted them to curves and added them together. Then I tweaked the resulting shape to create his body.
  11. Thanks Mike. The copy is still being prepared but I have talked to the paper and got the info I need from them.
  12. I'm going to be tasked with putting together an Obituary for a local paper. I'm figuring they likely use Indesign and I'm wondering if a pdf exported from Affinity Designer or possibly the publisher beta would open in Indesign? Can I embed the fonts I use within the Pdf?
  13. There is a set of spirals here that you get as a pdf file that you can import into affinity. In Designer you can select them and add them to the assets panel. In photo just copy and paste from the pdf. They come in as vector curves that you can edit to suit your needs. They aren't free but the price is reasonable.
