    Problem with the grid

    Thanks - Looking forward to that. When is 1.7 due?
  2. Hello all - I seem to have a problem getting grids to work properly. My artboard is 297 x 210mm. If you look at the first image and note the spacing of the 2nd axis, it's 10mm which into 210mm is equally divided. If I then add to the1st axis a spacing of 148.5 (second image) the grid shifts. If I divid the 1st axis further, it keeps shifting (image 3). What the hell is going on / have I missed? Thanks
  3. Thanks. I didn't realise this but also my panel was blank but a reboot seems to of fixed it. Thanks again :)
  4. I'm trying to stop my returns spacing being off in comparison to my leading on body text, and I believe I can do that via the Before and After Paragraph settings but I can't find them. Where are they? I'm on Mac / AD 1.5.5 This is all I have in my para panel: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kdgottig6tpe8ow/Screenshot%202017-04-26%2014.36.46.png?dl=0

    View in Photo differs from exported JPG / TIFF

    My bad for not doing that! They are the same :rolleyes: ! - Too much screen time has lost me a few brain cells!!
  6. Hello I've come across an issue where the images i am manipulating seem to look totally different to the final export. For example, below is an image in Photo that I have added the Grain filter too (I've added max grain for this example). In Affinity Photo: https://www.dropbox.com/s/snwxlnbrugkjded/Screenshot%202016-11-25%2012.10.28.png?dl=0 then if I export it as jpg or tiff, it results in: Open in Apple Preview https://www.dropbox.com/s/nmrc56asr9e5xn8/Screenshot%202016-11-25%2012.12.11.png?dl=0 ...and now it just got weirder. If I click spacebar on the file icon in Finder to preview it that way, I get a middle ground result between what I see in Photo and the actual jpg/tiff in Preview. https://www.dropbox.com/s/glu4pwi11bysc2u/Screenshot%202016-11-25%2012.20.48.png?dl=0 Any ideas? Im using Afinity Photo 1.4.3 Thanx

    Monotone / Duetone

    Managed to get a pretty good approximation. In PS you would: Grayscale > Duotone (or Mono / Triple etc) > Select colors and then convert back to CMYK to get the same visual effect, working in CMYK did this: Menu > Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Gradient Map Adjustment then in the panel I set the'first' and 'last' colors in the slider and deleted the middle one. If there better ways. Be good to know about it.
  8. Does Affinity Photo or Designer have a Monotone / Duotone / Tripletone to create this sort of effect: http://www.adweek.com/files/imagecache/node-detail/news_article/spotify-side-hed-2016.png Referring to the headshot image. Thanks!
  9. I've started to use Affinity Designer on a few jobs and I've noticed that when I 'Export' to PDF. The order of the art-board's are outputted in reverse. I have tried reordering them both within the layers panel and visually on the canvas. It would make sense to have them in the order they appear on screen, no? If I'm missing something somewhere, enlighten me, Ta!
  10. My mistake, its the Polar Grid Tool that is used to create concentric circles. Starting to forget Ai already!
  11. Yep, thats how I did it. Wondered if there was an easier way. Thanks. Thanks for the help everyone.
  12. Thanks for the rely - unfortunately that gives a smaller gap each time (check link). Does affinity have a Blend (as in Illustrator) tool or something like the Spiral tool, do you know? https://www.dropbox.com/s/xx4meutho4zs08o/Screenshot%202016-08-26%2012.15.13.png?dl=0
  13. What is the best / quickest way to achieve precise spaced concentric circles. In Illustrator I'd use the spiral tool. Thanks https://www.dropbox.com/s/blqam2akluzmc0s/Screenshot%202016-08-26%2010.07.56.png?dl=0
