  1. Is there a way to resize the document without setting up a new document? Say, dynamically re-sizing? Or to go from, A4 to A6?
  2. I'd like to add background color to a page but can't figure out how to do it. I select the color with the color picker. There are two opacity slides, but neither does anything as far as I can tell. What am I doing wrong?
  3. 1. Has anyone figured out how to create automatic reflowable text frames? Let's say I have (about) one hundred pages of text I would like to add to a document. Is there any way to have AP automatically reflow a text frame? 2. In AP (Mac), the "help" menu item is identified as being for Affinity Designer.
  4. How? Clicking on the pixel layer in the layers dialog and attempting to drag it is not permitted. My Movie.mp4
  5. I trying to create a layer of text on top of a colored layer. Here's what I did: Create document. Create layer. Enter text on layer. Create new layer. There are now two layers: a) a text frame layer and b) a pixel layer. Select new layer (pixel layer) Select color. Solid color blocks out text. Uncheck pixel layer--text is still in text frame layer. Begin to abandon hope. Try: fill layer, flatten image, mask layer--nothing works. This can't possibly be that complicated--and in the past I've performed the task successfully by accident only. So what is the secret?
  6. @DanC: I have no idea how this happened. Is there a way to "un-nest"?
  7. I'm trying to add an image to an existing image. Whenever I import the image, it completely fills the existing image and can't be resized. So I created an additional image (afphoto file) because files in the afphoto format can be resized. However, when I complete the following steps nothing is shown on the screen. If I use the square tool and try to paste the new image inside a created field, nothing happens except the square field remains.
  8. OK, I see that the first box represents "font color" though the only way you can discover this is if you serendipitously hover over the box. This fixed the problem, thank you.
  9. Yes, Affinity Photo. I don't know if it's Artistic Text or not. I just selected the text tool and started typing. Affinity doesn't seem to have an "execute" function. If I change the Fill nothing happens.
  10. I'm trying to create an image which contains text on a background. Nothing fancy. Unfortunately, the fonts are all showing up as outlines, with the desired color only forming the outline. I have no idea what's causing this and the unwanted effect is uniform across all fonts. In other words, changing the font won't fix this. How can I restore a "normal" text font?
  11. I would like to draw a line in the shape of a square around existing content. I can draw a rectangle, but it is solid and blots out the content below. How can I draw a line around existing content?
  12. If I go into "Recolor" and click on a similar option, a pop-up menu permits me to play with the sliders but the image is not affected. Clicking on the image does nothing. There is no "Apply" button on the pop up menu. Clicking on one of the proposed options does nothing. No "Apply" button there either. There must be some Affinity way of executing or implementing commends that I'm unaware of. Just tried the 'Return' key. That didn't do anything either.
  13. "The same way" is exactly what I'm trying to learn. Here's an image. One of the letters was selected using the magic wand tool. Now I select the new color. Click on the image using the Bucket Fill tool? Nothing happens. Context menu? I see no menu identified as "context menu." Click on the image with the pointer? Nothing. So the solution is...?
