  1. How do I do a screen recording? All I can tell you is that the snapping does not work. I use it on my desktop and it works fine. I get no colored lines indicating alignment with centers or edges or vertices. I do not know how to take a shot of it not snapping.
  2. I have the snapping icon highlighted but when I move one selected object around it is not showing any snapping lines. Not in the center or on any edges. I have two objects and one is selected. i want to sanp it to the edge of the unselected object. I move it around very slowly but nothing happens. it is as though snapping is not turned on. Need help
  3. I have searched this topic here but I wanted to get a more current answer here. I love this program but I am forced to use Illustrator to do any custom blending. And I use blending a LOT! Please please please do this before I leave the planet. I am 72 years of age so don't wait too long!
  4. Thanks Paul, That was exactly what i was looking for. Thanks so much.
  5. Just for saving time. I guess one doesn't need to create on the actual artboard. I was just wondering why every successive text entry automatically goes to the bottom of the layer stack instead of to the top of the already selected layer. Thanks for the reply and I love your Boris Johnson line about punctuation grammar and spelling!
  6. When I use the text tool it always creates a new layer below the artboard layer even when that layer is locked. Is there a way to keep the artboard layer at the bottom of the stack or to somehow get each new text layer to be created above the artboard layer? I searched the FAQs for this topic but found nothing. Thanks for any help with this.
  7. I noticed that if you have the artboard at the bottom layer you can lock it and still tap-select the objects on the layers above.
  8. Actually I used the "multiply mode" on this one. So it did not work. I did use the "export" but I do not know what you mean by an "exaggerated adjustment." Thanks for your input Wosven. I very much appreciate all the help this forum is providing me.
  9. Here are screen grabs of the different steps. I did the "merge visible" as recommended but that did not work either. Maybe I am missing something but when I used Photoshop (which I am no longer subscribing to) When I merged it flattened the layers. Here the merge visible simply adds a pixel layer, but as you will see (the change, in contrast, is slight) the contrast is lost and the linework reverts back to the original. I also tried exporting the jpeg but the darkened contrast is not there...as is shown in the last attached screenshot. The first attachment is the original linework. The second shows that adjustment. Very subtle but the linework is darker than the original. I would like to learn how to make it even darker. The third shows the result of "merge visible." The fourth shows the exported jpeg pasted below the original. The linework shows no adjustment. Thank you to everyone who has given me input to try to see what I am doing wrong.
  10. I have a line drawing, black and white. However the linework is too light. I go into adjustments and set the contrast to darker. It looks good. But I need to save it as a .png or .tiff or .jpeg. When I do that it reverts back to the original with the too-light-linework. I have tried everything. How do I merge the layers and retain the higher contrast I got in the adjustment layer? Thanks for any help with this.
  11. I no longer have that original file and now I too am unable to reproduce the error. Guess that is a good thing! Thanks for the reply. If it happens again i will try to hang on to the document and attach it.
  12. Here is a small .mov file ( I hope it uploads ) Showing the two brushes I use in corel painter. First I just make strokes with the scratchboard tool. Notice that when the stroke overlaps itself it goes much darker. I do not need to release the mouse button (or in my case, lift the stylus to begin a new stroke) in order for the stroke to go darker until it reaches 100% opacity. I like that as it allows me to sketch quicker. The opacity is pressure sensitive also and size so I can get variations on stroke width, tapering. Then I choose the Just Add Water brush and go over the strokes. This is also varied by pen pressure. I would love to find something inside of Affinity that could replicate this effect. thanks for any help with this. Untitled Project.mov
  13. I need to illustrate how blending brushes work in another program in order to better illustrate what is hard to do with just words and static images. I have Camtasia and can make a small video of the process. Thanks for info on this.
