  1. Hey Searched the mac - haven't used time machine ever - is there a way to look for it ? It was in the same project folder as other components I was working on - and others are still there except this one I was looking for. Also why has it disappeared from the open recent files tab ??
  2. Hi So I worked on a design last few days and somehow the project file has disappeared. I have the exported png file - however the project history - under OPEN RECENT doesn't even show the project in the list ! I don't remember deleting the project. Is there a way to recover symbols from the lost project or will I need to re-do the whole thing ? Wondering if upgrading to Mojave on Mac has anything to do with it. Thanks in advance
  3. Thanks Jimmy Jack - Yea I had tried with Tear drop yesterday but was struggling with the process - With the replies today, however - looks like am going to succeed Thanks again for the support and guidance !
  4. Thanks Ouki - Am assuming you drew the curves with pen tool. So you expanded the curved arcs and subtracted from the invisible white circle ?
  5. Wow Reglico - great link by the way. Using the video link - I got to Close but not quite firstdefence - Looks like you're mighty close - Wow - thanks - just wondering if we can get the curvature like the pic below - the ref Really loving the support
  6. Hello Callum, Here's a copy of the project. I've created one vector logo - however it isn't a perfect circle - so was trying to recreate it again. thanks LogoCreate.afdesign
  7. Hello Am trying to learn and achieve a logo copy by drawing curves and am running into issues. 1. Is there a better way to achieve this logo trace ? the figure 1 is what am trying to achieve and have drawn curves to match the underlying drawing. I propose to subtract curves from the underlying light grey circle to get solid bodies. 2. When I go and expand the stroke to add/combine the curves for subtraction - I get the figure 2 issue with uneven boundaries. Can someone help me with combining the curves or show a better way to achieve the result ? thanks
  8. Hi Is there a way to delete the line segment and nodes connecting them easily. Using break nodes - is proving to be cumbersome in cases esp when nodes overlap - making simple tasks difficult and impossible in some cases. Attached is a simple example of a shape created by joining mirror images. The centre line is unwanted and break nodes isn't working for me. Any simpler workflow is appreciated :) Also - join shapes is resulting in this centre line in all cases - when stroke width is zero - is there a workaround to eliminate this whilst joining shapes ? In this case am using Fill - so stroke is not required... Thanks
  9. Thanks Carl Ya understood that - however Since I've designed the 'g' - the text path is making things more messy - may be I need to check out the tutorial to get a better handle on this..
  10. Thanks Carl I'll give it a go... Wondering when will the warp tool would be available for the same...
  11. Thanks for the reply Mike Ya I suspected it won't be easy in designer... Reg - 'Go' - I've only shared a part of the logo - the real name is 'mango films' so the warp may look good - remains to be seen. I didn't wanna use clipping - I want it to run along the spine (or stroke) in the centre like a text path - within the GO curve...
  12. Hello Am working on a logo and was wondering how to 1. Give a group of (text or shapes) a perspective like Netflix Logo. I have AF photo and AF designer - however I wasn't able to effectively use the perspective or mesh tool for the same. 2. Can one fill a shape with patterns ? Here's part of the logo - I've converted it into curves - wanting to fill it with patters - say like stars or something around the spine... Idea is to make it look like fancy movie glasses Thanks
  13. Hello So in figure 1 - am trying to join the pen strokes as defined by the strokes as in figure 2 - to construct letter A However 1) It only works as intended if the lines form a shape such as a triangle and not if the lines are left open as in the figure Am I missing proper workflow ? 2) Also when I use the pen tool to draw a line segment from the node point within the black circle to the top point of the blue stroke to form an A - if I choose the node point on the hexagon (within the black circle) - the pen tool doesn't function as a pen tool but acts like a node tool. The hexagon nodes are showing as it's the selected layer - so I can use the nodes as reference points to draw an A Am sure my workflow isn't correct - just looking for an easier way to draw the blue lines to connect with each other and through the midpoints of the hexagon. thanks
  14. Ha - thank you Got it working - ya I was wondering - since they construct the polygon shape, there must be mid point geometries available for each element of the shape... I had to rotate by 90 degrees to get to your result - figured thats what you meant anyway..
  15. I Like the 6 point star idea - will try it out later for faster workflow. Am using 150 x 150 px box for the design.... Thank you
  16. Hello Am learning AF designer via tutorials and working on a logo - I have couple elementary questions 1. Can one snap to the mid point of the sides of the hexagon like shown in the figure marked by a black line. I am trying to divide the side into 2 line segments 2. How to create a 3 point star like in the figure below ( it's a rough diagram ) I do have the snapping enabled Thanks
  17. thanks - am still waiting for a solution - been looking through the forum and it seems - it's called blend/distort replicate tool - hopefully to be included in the next update...
  18. Thank you - I was however also looking at how to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqyNCFgLX8Q Like you mentioned - "If the objects are combined, a gradient of image can be used to fill all of them." The help section doesn't elaborate much on this.
  19. Thanks for the reply. Could you please point me towards a tutorial/info to what you mean in the second point "Power Duplicated" ?
  20. Hello Am absolutely a newbie and had couple questions : 1. Here's a youtube tutorial on 3D Revolve effect and pattern warp/layer on a Circle shape done in illustrator. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w17oOuts5Og Can this be achieved in Designer or Photo ? 2. Is there a blend mode equivalent to Illustrator - where one can multiply no of shapes in vertical or horizontal direction - like duplicating shapes to avoid cut paste x no of times ? Thanks
  21. Hello ! Am owner of Affinity photo and was looking to check out the Affinity designer as well. I was watching the video at https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/ui-design-software/ And there seems to be a 20% discount - which is not reflected in the iTunes store pricing. Just wondering if am missing out something. Regards
  22. Hi there Could anyone please help me find this font/typography and also help me understand how to implement ligatures in Photo ? I saw this in the video for typography and also have downloaded the FoglihtenNo6 - However I can't find the shown ligatures. 1. I have clicked the Text-Ligatures-Use all and when I use the shift+command+T - it shows up the dialog for open fonts but doesn't show the ligatures. 2. Am using a web template for practise.
  23. Hello ! Am a newbie to Affinity Photo - so still figuring my way around - might wanna check under Questions/ Photo FAQ. Alternatively the easiest way I have discovered is to use a program Pixlr from Autodesk - it's FREE and has a straightforward STYLIZE menu - with various templates like Sketch, Pencil etc. Check it out if it suits your workflow/needs.
  24. Thanks Matt ! Discovered this last night and am glad you've just reinforced that finding.
