  1. Hi,

    It's been almost three years since i posted this suggestion. I've found it in the old feedback & suggestions forum.
    So here it is again as a stronger request & as a much needed improvement:

    I'm talking about the Pencil Tool in Affinity Designer.

    Is it possible to automatically close a path after you have drawn a...circle...let's say? So basically I'm asking AD to snap to closing the path for the Pencil tool.

    When I use the pencil tool and stop drawing with my tablet there's a problem resuming the shape that i've already created. You just simply cannot continue the path.

    It is a basic tool for a photo editor, but Affinity Designer is an illustration/design application.

    Then why did you include a Photo persona within the Designer in the first place???

    I own both Affinity Designer & Affinity Photo and it's a drag to go to Affinity Photo every time i need to do some basic clone brush work.

    I strongly agree with everybody who previously posted, this is a very simple photo editing operation and it should be included
    in the Photo persona of the Affinity Designer.

    EDIT: I noticed it's included now in Publisher with the LINK feature if you own both Designer & Photo.
    Why not at least include this feature in Affinity Designer if you own Affinity Photo? Hopefully it's coming in 1.8.

    But it would be ideal for it to be a native feature of Affinity Designer.


  3. Hello

    My newly aquired Macbook Pro 15" 2018 (2,2Ghz) has some serious issues when running Affinity Designer.
    I am just drawing some basic circles with the Pencil tool and the laptop overheats like crazy and the fans
    start spinning like it's about to explode. CPU usage goes to surreal 800% / 500% / 350%...

    Does anyone else have this problem?


    here's a clip of cpu going to 850%.




  4. Hello all,


    So I have to send the print file to the printing house and need an art brush stroke I created to be only 1 color.


    The brush preset has all sorts of tints and the printing house returned it and told me they need it 1 color only.


    I only need it for it's rough edges. I tried expanding the stroke so that I can fill it with only one color but that's not possible in AD. I made the stroke normal and expanded it but I cannot apply a roughen edges effect to it now because it does not exist.


    Please Affinity...


    Anyone have a workaround to my problem?


    ! Attached is a zoom on the brush.
