  1. eg. z for zoom and b for vector brush. The affshortcuts is from 2015 AffinityShortcut.affshortcuts
  2. After the 1.7 update, I can no longer open Designer. Photo runs fine.
  3. Thanks again, it works. But some of my shortcuts are changed, tried to load a .affshortcuts to fix it, but that didn't solve it. Any ideas? At this time I've changed the most used ones, so don't stress.
  4. The file size is 2,01Gb. There is 3 files with brushes, that takes up the space (1994Mb) Can I leave them out?
  5. Thanks @Sean p It worked Do you want the new folder designer created, or the old one, or both?
  6. Hello all.. I'v spend most of my life drawing and painting, finetuning the flow of my strokes and the pressure. As much as I LOVE :wub: Affinity Designer, I hate the brushstrokes just as much, if not more. When I draw or paint, I know how much pressure I should put on my tool, and I WILL end up being satisfied with the result. In Affinity Designer however, there's this annoying :angry: autocorrect/smoothing function that makes it impossible to get what you want. I really wish that this behaivour would be an option, and not something we should be forced to adapt to. Why?.. Well I just explained why.. I know how I want my strokes, my hand and brain works perfectly together, they are a good team, who would have thought that? :P and then this bully Affinity Dersigner shows up and cleans out everything, leaving a mess :( . Stroke width is screwed up, and the flow of the stroke too. Please, Please, PLEASE CHANGE THIS. This should only be an option to turn on for those who haven't learned to draw, or those who's using a mouse. Sorry for sounding cocky, in the last part. Now just to be clear here, I'm talking about the Vector Brush
  7. I would LOVE to see a "random" and a "cloner" option like you have in 3D. This would speedup things a lot when producing stuff. Like select a object, then clone it. Options could be "number of clones" "Rows of clones" "distance between clones" "clones inside a mask" to meet the shapes of your needs. Now to the "random" part. "random scaling" "random rotation" "random position" inside the mask shape. last add a "seed option" so you can toggle between different random styles. For inspiration look into Cinema 4Ds cloner and random effector. Cheers
  8. Hear me out.. Why not let AD do the work for you.. So instead of the user having to find layers and groups by scrolling, it should just jump right to the selected object/group in the Layer PaneI. I mean AD highlights selected, but it could just as well jump to it. I would LOVE to see this added :wub:
  9. Affinity made a video a year ago on their vimeo channel https://vimeo.com/134838293

    Affinity Designer Workbook

    I'm waiting on my copy, hoping that it covers 1.5 features :unsure:
  11. Hi there.. It looks like there some unwanted stuff going on, when converting text to curves, that has fx in it. Take a look at the file and select the text and press convert to curves. And the look changes dramatic. Cheers Convert to curves bug.afdesign
  12. dang I searched the forum and found no results before posting.. :wacko: But it sure is a lovely feature to have ;)

    [AD] Solo a layer

    Yes you can solo object, but you can't alter it. Once you start to add objects to it, or change the nodes, all other objects will appear. You can change the color of the solo object, add gradient and transparent tool though. So I guess you can't really call it a useful solo option.. At least not in my opinion.
  14. How do one get a good results with Rectangular to polar - No matter what I do I keep getting very poor antialiasing.
  15. yes this and sliding nodes on the curve, which means the curve shape remains, but the point moves on it. I too would love the ability to extrude edges, so the workflow would remind of 3d modeling in top ortho view. BTW: you can get a circle with 8 nodes by using the Cloud Tool then set the number of bubbles to 4 and move the red node outwards so that it shapes like an circle. Then convert to curves.
  16. Hello there, and merry christmas to you - Now here's some feature requests, which I believe that none of us can live without. Now some of them have been postet before, but I remember Matt saying something along the lines "Oh my mistake, I thought we already added this" See my begging sheet Now the "plus some more" part was just to get your attention, or scare you away.
  17. now, it would be nice if you could click that triangle, and Affinity would show all conflicting parts.This way you could easily change them.
  18. would be nice if you could set a custom shortcut for this too.
  19. I have to ask if you have an open document? If not just press ⌘N
  20. Serial?.. There's no such thing, when buying on the AppStore. And if you want Affinity products, then AppStore it is ;) Now you can install on 5 machines for personal use, using the same AppleID.

    Tile patterns

    I would add some AO to these, to make them more convincing.
