  1. Deep in the memories...I remember this happening as well. Seems like the solution is to roll over the top edge or either top corner of the AD window and make the window shorter. Then lift up the window to the very top again. Then size the window correctly. (You might have to do the first step twice.
  2. I have always found it easiest to draw a box the size of the rectangle from the right side of the left object to the center of the line. Then double the width (and center if needed.) Pull the right object left and kill the square or I will often keep it for other adjustments. Good luck to us all!
  3. Aha! your 2nd question is exactly on point. Totally forgot about those settings in prefs. ...and didn't see the warning because it flashes off when the mouse is moved. But that is a different error to be reported. Many thanks~!
  4. Thanks for the interesting question OBruce. The MBP is a pre-retina display, and I don't think it is in P3...certainly not DCI P3. But I put the computer in the 2020 colorspace – or the OSX approximation anyway – and then opened Designer, then stuck in the USB stick and opened it. It opened in the DCI P3 space again. I did put a copy on iCloud and opened it on the iPad. It opened in 2020... If I remember correctly, this possibly started in DCI P3 – it is being made for cinema projection tests – and I changed it to 2020. Modified the colors, etc. But I wasn't satisfied so I open
  5. SOLVED – wrong setting in prefs and the notification flashes away before being seen. =-=-= I had an open file (attached) that is in the 2020 color space, which I was working on on my iMac. I wanted to work on it on my MacBook Pro (2011) so I did a Save As to a USB stick, adding a RevA to the file name. On the MBP I Opened that file from the USB stick, then checked the Document Setup, and the file was in DCI P3. Checking my steps again, I dragged and dropped the original .afdesign file onto a different USB stick. I opened that one on the MBP and it too opened in DCI P
  6. Thanks again. This is a good re-start. I still have to work out the anomalies to make the blends right. There is a bit more hot spotting, which I had worked out before by pure trial and trial and error (and error). But at least I know how to work with the transparency tool better. I still have to figure out how to separate the triangle colors so they don't influence the ball colors. ...a layer inserted in between perhaps...perhaps it is that there is some details that I have to learn about blend modes. There was still a very slight position difference with the red circle, even
  7. Many thanks to you both. I'll try both suggestions soon – I messed with triangle creation, and realize my skills on making the color flow is going to take a bunch of research and practice. I must have just lucked into getting as far as I did. Just when I think that I know a bunch, I realize I am just beginning.
  8. Hi The attached designer piece has 4 circles of identical size but 4 different colors and angles. The attempt is to layer them perfectly upon each other, yet there is just enough wrong to cause a 'tear' on the outside edge for part of it when I export it. The non-overlapping parts show on the original art, and they show in a large TIFF and a small PNG. I have remade the circles and tried all kinds of things to make them actually perfect. I am hoping someone will have a suggestion. The final art will be a TIFF at 4K screen, though it might go to 8K. Thanks for any thoughts.
  9. James, hi...and thanks...and...Good Eye. Indeed, this project started as a test of a few things, one being the effect of DPI for my final screen sizes, which tend to be 20 meters wide. And yes, it was started in P3 colorspace, but I don't know which one – perhaps it is in the History somewhere, or an old version. Of course, movies are in what are called the DCI P3 space, so it may have started there. And as you can see from the layers on the side, it started with a simple group of steps and moved up to what is no a huge bunch of options. I don't know if you have converted from
  10. Hello Perhaps I am not figuring something right, or expecting the unlikely, but... I developed the attached file as a cinema 4k image in 2020 color space. In addition to the gray scale steps there are a series of numbers that should be able to be discerned if a system is set up properly. I export to TIFF in 2020 and it seems fine – difficult to know for certain since my P3 monitor is emulating 2020 (iMac 5K). An export to 709 also looks OK (of course, after shifting the screen to that color space). An export to Native P3 looks OK. But when I export to DCI P3 it has a distinct c
  11. Hi...draw a simple square...try to transform a dimension or location with a simple '/2' after the number in the transform. It ignores you. '*2' works...
  12. Part Two wins you the Internet yet again!@!@ I am so thrilled with these that I have incorporated them into some training sites that I run. Do you use Affinity Designer for the drawings and then hit them with some magic HTML5 stick to get them to work? They are fabulous.
  13. Hi Again. Background: I have created a series of images that have the purpose of going from a media player through a projector onto a screen, to judge contrast...or, at least, one component of contrast – being able to see into the dark actually. Run it one day – perhaps after the facility is calibrated and note the numbers, then run it later and look for changes. Since I don't know whether a room can 'see' 1% or a tenth or needs 5% luminance for any of the values of RGB and Black (grey), I am making a series for the preliminary tests. Problem is: I export from the attached afd
