    MrDoodlezz got a reaction from dean shultz in Designer: Angled/Calligraphic Brush?   
    Hey Sumit Gupta,
    that's the problem: it's just not possible to create a vector-based calligraphy tip that behaves exactly as if you were drawing with a quill.
    If I'm talking about calligraphy I understand it as a flat tip drawn at a fixed angle, as opposed to drawing with a brush tip that changes in width and angle.
    Illustrator has had a solution for this for a long time, where you can define the fixed angle of the tip.
    I just found this site while searching for a visual representation like this:

    Cheers

    Also note, using Page Down (and Page Up) jumps with a reasonalbe speed at any icon size. But it requires you to first click on a page icon. Not too fast either if every click counts 😉

    Hi @MrDoodlezz,
    I just checked with a 400+ page document with mainly text in it and can confirm a rather slow scroll speed in the pages panel. But only if page size is set to medium or large. With small page icons scroll speed is noticable more responsive. The drawback is that it is hard to tell anything about the page's content.
    I've been working on shorter documents recently maybe that is the reason that I didn't get bothered too much.
    Also it helps to grap the scroll bar at the right side of the pages overview and drag that. It behaves much better.
    Still, I support your request to improve (or at least to look into) mouse wheel navigation in the pages panel.

    MrDoodlezz got a reaction from Mark Ingram in Rightclick/context menu via stylus for HUION tablet not working   
    Hey @Mark Ingram,
    guess I found the problem. Seems like HUION changed the way their driver checks for updates.
    Turns out I was already a few iterations behind and the »check for updates« button wasn't … well, really checking for updates at all. 🙄
    Sorry that I assumed it must be a problem of the Affinity software - but since all my other tools worked without issues this was my first thought. 😅
     Still have to test it for a few days – but the first try was successful and for right now it's working! 😉🤞
    Cheers

    MrDoodlezz got a reaction from DarkClown in Window → Arrange | Arrangement options for file windows   
    Hey everybody,
    I am currently looking for the function to arrange file windows (or different views of a file) in Affinity Publisher.
    I know this feature was available in Photoshop, where I used it every day.
    Are there plans to add a similar feature to the Affinity Range? That would be great!
    In Photoshop there are the following arrangement options to choose from:
    Arrange → Cascade
    Arrange → Tile
    Arrange → Float in Window
    Arrange → Float All in Window
    Arrange → Consolidate All to Tabs
    If there's already a topic about this I'm sorry, I couldn't find it.
    Greetings

    MrDoodlezz got a reaction from malayali in My graphic work and other stuff that I create   
    Hello folks,
    My name is Dennis. I created this pixelated self-portrait a few days ago. Started it in Dottable, a pixel-art app on a mobile phone, then traced it in Affinity Designer with the grid snap feature. Then I added a few grunge textures over masked areas, imported it into Affinity Photo, and finished it off with LUT filters and monochrome noise for a subtle paper-like feel.
    I like how precisely the applications work together and that you can add pixel-based textures directly in Affinity Designer without having to change the application, it integrates very fluidly into the workflow. 
    Anyway, I hope you like the result.

    MrDoodlezz reacted to GarryP in What's the difference between »Divide« and »Separate Curves«?   
    I think what we are seeing in your video is because you have already Xor’d the shapes.
    In this case the two functions do the same thing because there is no overlap, but they do different things when there is an overlap (as shown in my video).
    Or am I still misunderstanding the issue?

    Hey folks!
    I'd like to take a moment and share my latest work with you.
    I was asked to design the logo for a security and guard dog service.
    With this project I wanted to put the Affinity Suit to the test – and to no surprise it succeeded. 🏆
    The vector-based logo was created in Affinity Designer, as the tools are closest to the program alternatives I am familiar with - but which have become obsolete by now. The letterhead and business card were designed in Affinity Publisher. A visualized use case that is more comprehensible for the customer was created with the help of a mock-up in Affinity Photo. Just in time embedded documents (aka Smart Objects) are finally supported, thanks for this fine addition, Affinity! ❤️ Finally I combined all the information in a little brand book with Affinity Publisher and thanks to the new possibility to collect resources (another feature that was highly anticipated) I was able to compile all my work into a nice and clean job folder. For me the current coverage of the suite is already very impressive. Of course, one or two features could be further developed or added - but for this project
    (with one exception for the concept drawing) I never had to use a product outside the Affinity Suite range, which I think is quite remarkable.
    Please feel free to share your thoughts on this one! 😀
    Oh right, sorry – I forgot to mention that almost the whole document is published in German, but I guess you get the concept. 😅

    MrDoodlezz reacted to big smile in Automatically find other missing images in the same folder   
    When locating missing images in the Resource Manager, it would be great if the Resource Manager would automatically locate other missing images in the same folder.
    Example:
    My document has 4 linked images:
    1.jpg
    2.jpg.
    3.jpg
    4.jpg

    They are all stored in the "my images" folder. This gets renamed to the "linked images" folder, so I need to re-link them. 
    I use Resource Manager to re-link 1.jpg. After doing this, resource manager will display a dialogue stating "Other missing images found in this folder. Ok to relink?" I can then click "OK" an images 2.jpg to 4.jpg will be relinked without me having to do it manually.

    MrDoodlezz reacted to GarryP in How to create a Reuleaux Triangle   
    Designer was used in the video and I’m pretty sure that the same workflow can be followed in all the Affinity applications but you will have to use the relevant menu choices for the Geometry operations instead of the Designer toolbar buttons.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reuleaux_triangle
    Here’s how you can create a Reuleaux Triangle, see attached image and video below. (Apologies for the non-technical imprecise language.)
    1. Make sure you have Snapping ON (you may need to put more snapping options ON than you normally have).
    2. Draw a line which will be the bottom two points of the triangle.
    3. Draw a circle with CTRL+SHIFT from a centre at one end of the line so that the edge of the circle meets the other end of the line.
    4. Draw another circle the same way but from the other end of the line.
    5. Draw a line from where the two circles intersect at the top to one end of the line.
    6. Use the Move Tool (with SHIFT pressed) to resize the new line so it crosses the circle completely.
    7. Draw a new circle with a centre at the intersection of the two circles at the top until the side of the new circle snaps to the same horizontal position as the end of the new line.
    8. Delete both of the lines.
    9. Select two circles and use Geometry Intersect.
    10. Select both remaining shapes and use Geometry Intersect again.
    The attached image shows some examples of using the corner tool on the shape and some effects (Martin’s “Golden boy”).

    Hey Bruce, thanks – glad you feel inspired! 🤩
    Designer definitely hast some great tools, especially for advanced shape building. 👌
    But apart from, say, the Corner Tool or the Point Transform Tool you theoretically could achieve
    similar results in Photo as well, since it offers all the basic shapes as well!
    Not entirely sure what to make of this – thanks I guess? 🎸
