  1. Thanks so much. Now that I know I'm not doing anything wrong, I'll try to adapt a workaround. As for what I'm trying to accomplish - I need SVG files that will work with Cricut Design Space, which works best with "united" text elements.
  2. Hey everyone, Not sure of correct phraseology - so bear with me. I create a word; Hope. I convert to curves. I click to divide. It works to divide, however, any "circled" part of the word gets filled with the fill color. Please see the example. I've tried several different fonts with same issue - cursive is even worse as all the loops are filled as well. What am I doing wrong? thanks in advance!
  3. Ah! I see. Thanks. I'll do that as soon as I can get back to work on my designs.
  4. I tried double clicking the artboard but that doesn't work. In fact, it does nothing at all when I double click. I have version 1.6.1 Mac. Thanks for the symbol suggestion. I will try that. much appreciated. graf
  5. Hi, Loving AD. Couple of q's. 1 - Is there any method to change a text phrase across multiple artboards in AD? There are 100+ pages (boards), and I don't relish the idea of doing this manually. 2 - It would be so nice to have artboards listed in the same way layers are listed in the sidebar and showing only the board you're working on the dashboard. Is that possible? So far, I've only been able to add the boards either on top of each other or dragging side-by-side. The dashboard work area gets so crowded it's confusing and I'm constantly needing to zoom. There must be a better way as the way I'm doing it is cumbersome. Thanks in advance! graf

    Curated list of Free for Commercial Use Fonts

    Thank you! I came to the forum to ask about fonts - and your post anticipated my needs. Ever grateful!
  7. I understand the basics of using a bitmap fill and successfully used it on a couple of images. I downloaded an .eps file from Depositphotos and opened it up in affinity designer. I tried to insert a bitmap image and it inserts ... but not inside the object. It inserts into the strokes, and the inside of the image remains empty. The image (as it comes from DP) has no fill or stroke defined; it's a crab with a transparent center. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance! Graf
  8. Small icons and color combo on the iPad pro user interface are difficult for visually impaired. Difficult to see gray on gray or black. The colors on the Mac interface are great! This would be a great improvement. Thanks!
  9. Thanks. Would love to see this at some point in the future. Also looking forward to AD for iPad!
  10. Just invested in the ipad pro 12.9" - motivated by Affinity (I've had the same ipad since the second generation). I even bought one for my hubby so he could enjoy learning AP with me. Yep, I was motivated! BUT ... so disappointed in the small icons and color combo on the iPad pro user interface. Macular degeneration makes it difficult to see gray on gray or black. The colors on the Mac interface are great! Any way to adjust the UI settings to make it easier for the visually impaired? Thanks! Graf
  11. It is great to hear this is being addressed for version 1.6. I purchased Affinity Designer (MAC) and have a difficult time with the visuals being so small. I downloaded a trial of the photo program and it seems even worse. I will wait for the next version before purchasing photo. Looking forward to SEEING the changes! It's tough to see small indistinguishable icons/text when you have Macular Degeneration - even with strong glasses. Looking forward to the next upgrade for this great program!

    Affinity Designer keeps crashing

    Crashed just now. I opened a PSD file (created in photoshop), made a small adjustment and saved as a PDF file. I clicked away from AD and opened Chrome browser. While I was on this forum the error notice popped up and Affinity closed. Attaching error file. Thanks Graf affinity-error.rtf
  13. I am on the 3rd day of trial and the program crashes constantly. Oddly, it doesn't crash when I am using it - only after I have saved a file and am not even in the program. I generally save as PSD and afdesign files. I am using a Macbook Pro 10.10.5 w/Yosemite. Also, I have Photoshop open at the same time if that matters. I really like the program but not sure it is reliable. The program has crashed at least 5 times today. Any pointers as to why this issue? Thanks graf
