  1. Hello, In Affinity Designer I noticed that whenever I change the Constraints configuration for an object the "outer" effects on it stop working. In the linked video I have an outline shadow for each "row" on my design. When I change the constraints the shadow disappears - you can see a very fine line where it should be, like if it's been cropped. I have tested this with Outline Shadow and Outline Glow with large radius to the same result. Inner Shadow and Inner Glow are not affected by it. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2273140/ad-windows10-drop-shadow-constraint.mp4 Thanks

    Call for Camera Images

    Is this restricted to professional cameras? I have a Xiomi 4K camera for recording video but it also takes pictures in RAW format.
  3. Hello Serif team, I am wondering what is the reasoning behind the inconstant behavior of the Shift key when transforming different kinds of objects in Affinity Designer. Examples: Transforming a single shape with shift key pressed - scales proportionally Transforming a single image with shift key pressed - scales freely (out of proportion) Transforming a group (either a group of images, a group of shapes or mixed) with shift key pressed - scales freely Transforming a text frame with shift key pressed - scales freely Transforming a selection of many shapes (ungrouped) with shift key pressed - scales proportionally In all the cases above the shift key is being pressed while dragging the handles, why don't they all behave the same? Shouldn't a modifier key always apply the same modification to the same tool (transform, in this case)? It is such a headache to change the behaviour you're used to depending on what's selected, or what's grouped or not. This doesn't make sense to me from an usability perspective. i"m running latest public AD in Windows 10 (also latest).
  4. Thanks for explaining, MEB. I wonder why is this not the default behaviour as in many other design tools. Also, the description of that setting in Portuguese doesn't really say what it does. It's completely nonsense, so if you could please ask the developers to review it... Translates back into english as "Move the restriction to the tool aspect". What?! I would have never figured it out.

    Shouldn't this post be locked for comments? This way we only get notifications when the list is updated, not when a comment is added.
  6. Currently every time I start a new document I have to set the Pressure Controller for a brush manually. Would like to be able to set it as a default either in the Tools preferences or in Edit > Defaults > Save as Default.

    Isometric Dub Siren

    Great detail and styling. I own quite a bit of synths and wanted to make illustrations of them for t-shirts but I usually give up by the 11th knob

    Concept Software icon

    Cool idea. Personally I find the original icons hideous, but you managed to keep the identity and expand on the concept, so they all fit together. Well done!

    [Designer] Website Login Pages Templates

    Hello, I made these login pages templates in my spare time. They're for Affinity Designer. Maybe it will be useful to someone. You will need the free "Chivo" font from Google Fonts to edit the file - https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Chivo Enjoy! Login Template FernandoLins.zip
  16. Hello all, In Photoshop it is quite easy to do a "pixel-stretch" effect on a bitmap layer (such as a photo) by selecting a row or column of single pixels then scaling it (see picture below). When I try to do this in Affinity Designer (in Pixel mode), the pixel row/column is resized and smoothed out, becoming a gradient. How can I avoid this and get the same effect as in Photoshop?
  17. This is great stuff, @Ben and Serif team. Well done! Can't wait for the update. Will certainly move me a step closer to ditching Photoshop/Illustrator.

    Affinity Photo and Designer 1.6 have launched!

    Hi, is there a changelog for the last minor update?

    [ADe] Gradient editor

    Is there a way to save the gradient being added as an FX to the Gradient swatches instead of an FX style? I do not see the option at all.
  20. Switching colors is also broken on latest retail 1.6 version. The color isn't updated on the panel and doesn't change if I move the sliders around.
  21. Hello everyone, I have created several symbols in my AD document so I can test different color schemes in UI mockups. However I noticed that when I drag them into the canvas/artboard they do not snap to the pixels grid, becoming very fuzzy. Only if I release them and then start dragging again they will then start to snap to objects and moving pixel by pixel. It would be cool if they snapped to the pixels grid as soon as they are dragged onto the canvas so I can make quick drag and drop without having to realign them later. The three pixel alignment toggles at the top bar are on.
  22. This is an issue for me too, just when the pixel grid offset bug got solved, this comes up... The work-around of expanding the object in a larger size doesn't seem to solve the issue @Molumen showcased, where the strokes become this weird blobs instead of rounded rectangles.
