    Round Sticker with Peel Effect

    Hey guys, just a quick and clean Designer file: a round sticker mock-up for your … mock-upping needs. You can change almost everything and layers are named accordingly to their purpose: rotation, colour, outline. Also let me know if you need a rectangular version, so I’ll add one with the same style. Cheers and have fun! MrDoodlezz Sticker.afdesign
  2. Any news on the arrow head situation? I’m not a programmer by any means, thus I have no idea how complicated it would be to script something like this, but I’d assume it’s kind of a basic function. And I really hate to push, but even with releasing Photo in the meantime and current work on the upcoming app – it’s been four years now, and Designer isn’t fully completed with the basics users demand and eagerly await.
  3. Oooh, I see! Thanks for pointing that out, you're right. I guess I created them as system palettes. Thanks for your quick respond about this matter, owenr! Something to have in mind for the future.
  4. Hey MEB, though this thread seems a bit dusty I have the following question: I'd like to export my colour palettes on my Mac and import them on Win so my swatches are in sync. My problem is that the export only results in .clr files which – for me unknown reasons – can't be imported again in Affinity Photos on Windows. Am I doing something wrong? How do I get the .afpalette format? Help would be greatly appreciated. Greetings MrDoodlezz
  5. Hey guys, just to put in my two penny worth. Exactly the problem! There's a great demand for a permanent list or palette displaying any missing fonts if there are any. Currently I've got a Designer-document with six different fonts which I disable between projects that distributed over several segments. If I open the document later on I get the prompt in the upper right corner wich disappears after a just a couple of seconds as already mentioned several times. I would need to open the document several time or take a screenshot in order to see and activate missing fonts. Although there is a Missing Fonts option in the Characters palette at the bottom of the first drop-down, it does not work reliably for me at all. Some fonts are displayed to me after I come across and select the text segment that's been formatted with the missing font. Other fonts apparently get replaced with already activated fonts automatically – who thought this would be a good idea? This creates more trouble than it tries to solve. Sorry if I'm harsh, but I've got to say that's a pretty useless feature if you ask me – what kind of solution is this supposed to be? Especially (professional) graphic artist and designers (maybe switching from Adobe products) don't leave the font replacement to a program by chance! Full control or at least a notification or replacement dialogue before anything gets randomly replaced would be a better solution. I also get this relating error working on an Mac: After activating missing fonts with the document already opened only some fonts get replaced, others stay a generic system font. Hopefully some of this makes it into a future update or get fixed. Greetings and thanks, MrDoodlezz
  6. Hey Twain, I just stumbled upon this today as well after opening a PSD file which looked totally differnet compared to what it looked like in Photoshop. It's nice those text boxes are there – but they just won't work for me as expected, if they work at all. This is a problem if you need to open PSD files which come with curves that originally have those informations attached, regardless if you need those values for professional production or amateur image editing. If the material looks different from what you expect it's unnecessary work to recreate the right values/look, especially if one assigned the input/output to the individual channels with more then one node on each curve. Also I figured while in Photoshop has a different default setting how to display input/output values that Affinity Photo. Photoshop: Affinity Photo: Affinity Photo allows values from -100 to +100 – the unit is undefined, I couldn't find where it says what those values actually mean, and I have no idea what "float" is supposed to mean in this context. Also in Photoshop you can assign values for individual points on the curve, while Affinity Photo allows only one value as a general input if I understand correctly. I hope some developer reads this and can give us insight about this topic and why those fields are there and what's the intention about changing how they usually work completely. Personally I think especially curves is the most basic adjustment there is and it's not really working out as intended – even if AP is out a few years now. The option to quickly change between editing modes (RGB, CMYK, Lab, Grey) is interesting, but maybe that's the point why it's not working as expected. Greetings Dennis
  7. Hey DWright, thanks for your quick response, it worked just as I expected – awesome! Greetings Dennis
  8. Hey there community and Affinity devs, some time ago I asked the developers via Facebook if there's an option to keep the adjustment presets like gradient maps, imported and saved LUT files, levels, curves – pretty much everything in the "Adjustment"-palette/tab that you may have generated and saved there over time. Back then (August 2015) you would need to save them separately, because you'd loose them with the next update – at least that's what happened to me twice – after that I was more cautious about those files. Anyway, I got a pretty helpful response: I was told there's a file called adjustments.propcol in the directory /Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinityphoto/Data/Library/Application Support/user/ and it would contain all of my adjustments – and it's true! You can save that file and put it back there after each update to preserve your custom presets. Tough I guess it's been solved since a few updated ago because I haven't done it after a couple of times. Last year I purchased the Win-version of Affinity Photo as well and just now I'm starting to wonder: How to transfer adjustment presets from one system (Mac) to another (Win) and is this possible in the first place? So if anyone knows the answer or a workaround that doesn't involve loading everything manually I'd be pretty thankful. Greetings Dennis
  9. Hey Chris, thanks for your quick response. Hm, that's too bad. Well, I guess there's no workaround for the backspace? But then again it makes me wonder why is backspace assigned to the Inpaint option by default. And now, that I removed the binding from the Inpaint option in hope that'll allow to assign that shortcut to the fill option the only way to reset is is to reset the whole shortcut-set – including the newly set increasing/decreasing keys which I assigned manually to every tool afterwards. For the decreasing/increasing brush-size shortcuts there's no workaround either to assign them once for every tool? Wouldn't it be convenient to assign the same keys to all tools at the same time or at least offer an option to do so? I don't see why I would want to set differing keys for basically the same function for every tool. Greetings and thanks again Dennis
  10. Hey there community! I've got two bugs right now I assume. First one: if I try to assign the Alt+Backspace command to the "Fill" option it can't record the Backspace for me. It only says Alt+ and then waiting for input. At first I thought it's because the exact same shortcut is assigned to the "Inpaint" option, but even after removing it from there it does not record any other "function"-keys (?) except for numbers and letters, as far as I can tell. Second bug is this one: I'd like to assign , (comma) and . (point/full stop) to any tool that offers the option of changing the brush size via key-input. So what I thought would work is applying those keys to one random tool and check the box "Apply to all", but it's not working. In fact this box does nothing for me right now. A work around for me would be the option of pressing the Alt+Ctrl key and drag, similar to how it's working on Mac, but that doesn't work for me either – maybe I got the wrong buttons and someone can tell me wich ones to press actually to make it work? Edit: I'm working with a german-layout-keyboard btw. Greetings Dennis
  11. Hey guys! Strange … I just wondered about this option as well a few days ago – good to know I’m not the only one who’s missing this feature. Thanks carl123 for pointing this out! It’s good to know there’s a way to expand/collapse all layers/groups/shapes/… – though maybe we can encourage the developers so for a future update they consider adding the opt+click-on-arrow variant which some of us already know from Adobe products and even from Finder on Mac as well, or at least the possibility to assign a shortcut. Right now it just seems a bit strange to me that you need to right-click into a dropdown menu just to find two options that could basically be one option. Greetings Dennis
  12. Hey guys, just today again I really could’ve used this function – or at least very a similar function with the same result – as well. Maybe this could at least get added to the mentioned roadmap? At this point I’d rather have this feature instead of the Mesh Warp filter which I personally find pretty imprecise for a simple perspective transform like shown in the attached file. As I create mostly simplistic and »clean« logos or imagery in apps like AD or AI I never really had any use for it as far as I can recall – but that’s very subjective of course. As Matt already stated it’s a bummer we need come up with work arounds for (simple?) missing features like this. Greetings Dennis perspective_transform.mp4

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta (1.6.6 - Beta 7)

    Hey there. For me this point still doesn't work out as I assumed or hoped. The situation is this: my default/system language is German and the most used symbol for differing decimals is comma – not just that but it's also the symbol on every german keyboard numbpad. But I like to run programs in english (better/international wording for some tools, functions, filters e.g. and just simply my preference). Just now I sat down and did some testing, hoping for enlightenment or at least give me a reason to just go with the german settings. UI set to English: If I type 12,5 (comma) the application will decline the new value. The parameters are set back to the previous value. If I type 12.5 (period) the application will accept the new value. UI set to German (or system language for that matter): If I type 12,5 (comma) the application will accept the new value. If I type 12.5 (period) the application will – also – accept the new value. I find this strange. I expected the German setting to refuse the use of period as a dividing symbol, just as it is the case with comma and the English setting. My question/s: Why is the app behaving like this? Will this get fixed/changed/optimized any time soon? Is it supposed to work like that? What can I do to change it without changing the way my system works? There’s also a topic about this or at least a very similar problem leading to this, dating back three years with some recent activity about this matter – it does apply to both apps btw. Greetings and thanks for the great updates nonetheless Dennis

    Count me in on the crashes … can’t save in any format via ⌘+⌥+S, regular saving works though.
