  1. Hi, Just played with the tool, and it's exactly what I want. It's also a great way to separate fills for using them in 3D as separate objects. Will be happy to see this arrive in 1.9 rob
  2. Hi, Sounds like something that fits the bill. I might try that one. At least I'm not overlooking a tool in 1.8.5 rob
  3. Hi, Maybe not the best description, but not sure how to make it more clear I'm trying to see if the following is possible in Designer: I want to have the visual result of an object with a fill color and a outline color, but being two objects. This is easy to do when your objects are simple in shape. But imagen a closed, curvy object drawn with the pen tool. I give it a fill and no stroke. I now copy this object on top, but now want thisa one to be say 10pt. smaller on the border edge, so it follows the other shape precisely, but smaller. Like the one shape with a fill and border. I ran into this a couple of times already. (imagen a curved bottle, with fluid inside that has to follow the bottle curves, but with some extra tweaks at the top of the fluid) Maybe something like a expand/shrink on a pixel selection? cheers! rob
  4. To add to this, -ALL- my 1.8.4 updates applications stopped working with my Wacom Intuos 4...... I cannot draw or select anything in my artwork. I can do that when I use a mouse. I can access the menu's or add a layer with my pen/tablet. In the FAQ's I found something about changing Wintab stuff in 1.8.4. Is this related? Oh... And I use the pen in 'mouse mode'. Pretty bummed out with this, reverting back to 1.8.3 as long as this behavior exist. rob OK, it seems the workaround as mentioned in the FAQ works for now. It might be nice to had a heads up before installing this though. And I saw the latest beta has a tablet prefs section now for this.
  5. Hi, never been there, but will have a look thanks!
  6. Hi all, I haven't really had time to look into this due to time constraints on other work (sorry....), but is there any good IT related (pref. vector) artwork available for the Affinity apps? It would be nice to directly use stuff from a e.g. artwork/icon library instead of importing things. If there's no such thing yet, any tips, links etc. to useful artwork relating IT subjects - think artwork regarding pc, tablet, phone, internet, switches, routers, viruses, malware, hacking etc. imagery - and basic chart/graph/diagram stuff will be greatly appreciated! Anything to make slides more interesting to look at, but avoiding the more standard (cheesy) photo stuff you find on a Google search or at a stock site. So something that looks a bit more pleasing and professional, and make it possible to quickly start building up presentation material ;) Free or commercial work is not an issue. cheers all for any answers, rob
  7. Not just people, but hospitals, businesses, ports, governments etc. etc. Cyber-attacks are getting more and more sophisticated, and scary imho. But that discussion is a subject of its own, and would not fit here
  8. Well..... Having backups should be a no-brainer for everybody. But unfortunately this is not always the case. The backups, not the brain thing.... Still running a RAID based server with a rotating, double based, backup scheme. And some of the data is in the cloud as well. One can never be careful enough. Especially with ransomware attacks. Have your data on multiple places people!
  9. Well... The beta comments are already made, so I won't do that. Or did I...? If your other documents -do- work just fine, it might be -this- document that has gone haywire somehow. Maybe a bad save? Or a embedded graphic that is causing the issue? There are some unknowns right now, without you doing some more testing on the file. Can you open up previous versions of the document, and see if the problem is there too? Never ever stick to one file over a project.... Save many versions and save often. Try to be a bit methodical in finding the issue. If this is a bug, it will help the peeps at Affinty fix it for the other users. Just shouting 'OMG BBQ I'M SO UPSET' doesn't really help anyone. good luck hunting rob
  10. Hi, Thanks for that! So for now it's manually replacing all (embedded) files..... That's a shame. It would be nice to have at least the ability to know and auto update the file(s). here's hoping on it being added to a future version of Designer. rob
  11. Hi, Sorry if this has come up before (did search the forum), but is it so that Designer cannot link files, but instead always embeds them? I'm working on a Designer file atm, with a bunch of Photoshop images placed in the document. I received changed Photoshop files (same name), but when I re-open the Designer file the originally placed images don't reflect the changes. There's also no way -as far as I can find- to refresh the images placed in the documents. Strange thing is that if I select a placed image, I can select a link or embed option with the 'Replace Image' button. At least for files like .jpg, .png etc. Not for the .psd files already in the document unfortunately. So.. Is this something Designer is not capable of? And is there something coming for this, as the Designer beta has something for this afaik. This is very much part of a basic workflow, and also the ability to finally go from linked to embedded should be part of this as well. cheers for any answers or tips!

  12. Hoi G., Wees er zeker van dat de foto die je in wilt lezen in een formaat is die Photo 'snapt'. Je geeft niet aan welk bestandsformaat de foto is, waarmee deze gemaakt is, welke software je gebruikt om te exporteren of wat het bestandsformaat is na exporteren. En drag&drop werkt inderdaad altijd, maar normaal is het File>Open of Bestand>Openen, zoals in elk Windows programma. Oh.. En het forum is voornamelijk in het Engels. Scheelt een hoop extra reacties. En wees zo duidelijk mogelijk in je vragen, een paar extra zinnen uitleg maakt het voor anderen vaak een stuk duidelijker. 'Het werkt niet' is meestal niet zo duidelijk, we zitten nu eenmaal niet naast je. succes! rob
  13. Ah, I see. So i have to find similar brushes, but in vector format to achieve this. It's a bit of a bummer though, as one cannot use these for print then.... How can you see it's a vector or pixelbased brush? cheers! rob
  14. Hi, Just a quick question about Designer's brushes, especially the artistic ones like the 'texturing' or 'hand lettering' series. If I create something, and export the design to e.g. PDF, the result of the brushes is much more low-res that the original. It looks very pixelated at the edges. Isn't the brush a vector file, or does this not convert into PDF? I also imported stuff into Illustrator, but it's the same there. I cannot send something out for print like this. Any tips on this? thanks! rob
  15. Hi guys, Just a question after watching all the videos. Why is the workflow between the columns and tables different? I would expect the tables be treated the way columns are, but with a little bit of extra functionality. Now text and background colors works completely different from columns + text. For me it just feels odd compared to the rest of the workflow in AP.. rob
