    Maybe some more unusual languages could not be included in the installation file, but wouldn't it be possible to have an option in the settings where you could install additional languages with one click?

    orjwid got a reaction from R_G in How to add spatter to the edges?   
    Hi, in fact I have thought about the same topic. The solution I have come up with is to use a very rough textured vector brush, or better make some yourself (which I have done). The if you select quick shape or a curve of your own design and the choose the paint brush and the particular brush type you want, in black and with the interior also fille with black, you get black image with rough outline which you can use as a mask, Just place it above the image you would like with rough edges and select mask below in the layers panel, and you would get the desired shape with rough edges. In this way you can e.g. make photos in the form of a heart with rough edges. Please have a look at the files attached.

    Dear Lagarto,
    I thought I had Thanked your for this last help, because now the Swedish spelling and hyphening works flawlessly! It was really important for me to solve this problem, for a desktop publishing program that cannot handle one's language is not useful. I think Affinity should handle this language issue as a priority!

    I thought it would be wonderful if you could export a Publisher file to powerpoint, or even add som features to powerpoint to become a powerpoint editor. As I was preparing for a powerpoint presentation, I realised that I could export my Publisher file, in which each page was edited in Designer, using master pages for background design, to pdf. Then I used one of the free online facitlites to convert the pdf to powerpoint with all layers etc preserved! Then i the powerpoint editor I could add various animations etc. Thus Affinity could be used as en excellent tool for creating advanced powepoint presentations!

    This short video is about how to create offset paths in Affinity Designer.  Offset paths are a powerful tool that designers use to create exact duplicates of a vector object shape and then use these duplicate as individual vector objects.  With the ability to create an exact size for your offset, you've have a powerful tool to create fantastic eye catching layers in you digital art. Creating offset paths in Affinity Designer is quick and it's easy. I show you how to setup the keyboard shortcut and with one click you are ready to create offsets for any object, shape, text, or line.  Offset paths are one of the secrets that designers use to create stunning computer graphics.  Create your own website graphics, digital art, blog posts illustrations, instagram images, and go ahead and brag on twitter!  Happy Creating :-) Jen

    Hi, I just started a new hashtag on Instagram: #affinityphotoillustration. I decided to do that because I am working on a picture book / app starting to use Affinity Photo instead of Photoshop. I will show some of my illustrations, all bitmap, no vectors, done in AP. It would be nice to see more illustrators using AP presenting art under the same #affinityphotoillustration tag. To get to now about you, to learn how you use this software and to get inspired from each other. See you on Instagram!

    orjwid reacted to gdenby in An Shapes Tool tutorial in .pdf   
    Hi, all,
     
    Some time ago there was a question about tutorials that were not vids, for people that liked to take some time reading.  I decided to make up an introduction to the shape tools in AD. 
     
    Nothing to fancy, but I hope it outlines what the shapes can do, and how to manipulate them in basic fashions. The file is a bit over 4 Mb. I put it on DropBox, and this is the 1st time I've used the service. Hope it works out OK.

    Dear Affinados,
     
    As it is Easter Saturday today I have made an Easter greeting card. The Easter egg is a picture from our summer place which Ihave masked off by a rectangle converted to curves and then manipulated. The text (in Swedish) is a quote from the Bahá’í Holy Writings and reads in English: "If we are not happy and joyous at this season, for what other season shall we wait and for what other time shall we look?"

    After members kindly pointing me in the right direction I thought I would do a Tutorial.
     
    I have done a tutorial for those people who might have had a version of Drawplus and have now upgraded to Affinity Designer this shows how to export your clipart with all the layers in to AD with all the same layers and then taken into CTA3 and did a short animation with it. I think you will agree the amount of vector clipart in DrawPlus should keep you supplied for some time to come and the biggest plus it’s FREE.
     
     
    Best Regards
