    new version can not be opened

    That's the way it's been. Older versions of the program can't open files created with newer versions. I giess it's nice that they're not carrying forward legacy code and get bloated files like Photoshop.

    Stroke Slider Lag

    Good find Sean! Thank you for the tip. I think it will let me get by until there is a fix for the bug. I would hate to break compatibility to my older project files. Kevin

    Stroke Slider Lag

    In the meantime, is it possible for me to install an older version and not lose all of my settings and installed brushes? The lag so bad on some of my documents and makes the program almost unusable...
  4. When multiple vector objects are present in Affinity Designer (greater than 20 not placed in groups or layers), the stroke slider becomes almost unusable due to severe lag. if I place all the objects in a layer or group and twirl it closed, the lag goes away. Is there anything that I can do to fix this issue? Windows 10, GTX1080G, GTX1070ti Affinity Designer 1.6.5.135
  5. I have the same problem with duplicate fonts showing up. Is there a way to delete the font cache?
  6. Here is a free script that will move the groups to layers if you want..less twirling. But it's a one-way street. You can't merge layers to groups. I know the explode shape layers script is $30, but well worth it for the time that I save. https://github.com/takahirome/AdobeScripts/blob/master/AeScripts/customUI/Additional_Scripts_CS4-CS6%201.zip%20%E3%83%95%E3%82%A9%E3%83%AB%E3%82%BF%E3%82%99/Explode%20Shape%20Layer.jsx
  7. Export as an EPS file. Import into AE. Add EPS to a new comp. Run explode shape layers script and you will have one shape layer for each element.
  8. I would love a way to paste an object inside a group. In the attached image, I want to paste the pink rectangle inside the group that contains three elements. I know that there are ways to get the same effect, but I want to keep the file as small and editable as possible.
  9. Ha! So great! I totally overlooked that one! Thank you for the heads up. That's what I needed and of course, it works better than PS. Thanks.
  10. We need a way to use black and white images as a Layer Mask. I am trying to use some grain/noise images as a matte, but my final image needs an alpha channel. Currently, I have to use PS to convert my BW images to an image with an alpha channel to use. The workflow isn't very convenient. I have attached the type of image that I would like to use as a Layer Mask. You can see that creating a selection from the image would be impossible.
  11. We definitely need support for b/w images as a mask. I want to use textures like paint splatter as a layer matte, but it is impossible at the moment. The grain/splatter/noise textures that I want to use are too integrate to create an image with an alpha channel. I have to use PS to create a file to use as a matte first...not a good workflow.

    1 Pixel Lines - Affinity Designer

    Do you know if there is an update in the works to redeem the error? Thanks. Kevin
  13. I'm finding that I get a 1-pixel edge around some of my vector elements. Here is one example of the problem. I created a triangle with a black fill, the stroke is white and set to "Align Stroke to the Inside". The result is a 1-pixel line around the triangle. All image files export show the black line. I could break this element into two layers, one for the fill and one for the stroke, but should I need to? If I export the image as an EPS and open it in Adobe Illustrator the lines go away. However, this isn't an ideal workflow. Is this a common problem on Windows? Windows 8.1 Affinity Designer 1.5.1.43
