  1. Ah. Bleed. Yes. I see it. I supposed it will be a PDF. Not sure yet. It's for a 30 foot by 6 foot sign (excuse the empirical measurements). So I don't need a margin at all. I think that solves my problem. On a different similar note, if I wanted to mask multiple layers with one shape, is that fairly simple?
  2. I have a document for print for which there will be some bleed outside the boundaries of the printed product. I'm not sure what the "proper" was of doing this is and have added a "margin" outside of the dimensions of the final print/cut sign. What I'm not sure about is how to View and/or Export the document without the bleed.
  3. Ah Perfect. So you put the images INTO the the text layer as child objects of that layer, then they display as the FILL for the text. Beautiful. Thank you.
  4. I am creating a composite of images masked by type. I'd like to be able to move layers of images beneath the type until I have something I'm happy with. Currently I know how to create a clipping mask over a single image, and I can also duplicate the Type layer and create multiple masks that fit together like the attached. Is there a way to just mask all layers beneath a text layer and only allow whats below to show through within the text layer?
  5. Hey I would love to be able to export a palette from either or both Design and Photo into some sort of HTML entity format. It would be great if it did a text file with CSS in multiple blocks: hex hsla rgba And we could just grab as needed for development.
  6. Another vote for this feature. In the meantime looks like Inkscape can do: http://www.eyedrawit.com/use-inkscape-extensions-to-roughen-outline/
  7. Ah yes. So the .afpallet extension works in both. Thank you! I should have realized that.
  8. i see. thanks. Do you know if there's a way to move pallets between AD and AP?
  9. I don't see an option to save the pallet as .ase. Where is that, please?
  10. I have a complex shape that I need to reorient the lines/nodes of. The example attached shows an Uppercase B composed of three lines: outside inside top inside bottom I want to combine the inner lines such that they form a single line. This is a MWE (minimal working example) of a more complex shape that I'm trying to remove an apparent line from, which I have also attached.
  11. Wonderful! That's a very cool tip, but it doesn't block the outline:
  12. Is there a way to make a shaoe overlap itself? So for example an arm crossing a torso would hid the edge of the torso under the arm (and maybe even retain it's color): Thanks and please pardon my vast ignorance. Loving Affinity Designer!
