  1. I need to do this so I can make a pixel layer to add some texture without the various shapes showing lines/edges. I';ve succewssfully done this with the rest of the image as you can see in the attached photo. But those were all single shapes. I made this alien's body in 4 different shapes but I want them completely merged. I thought I could group them and add new pixel layer... but no matter where I place the pixel layer... it's just not right. How do I merge these 4 shapes into 1 shape? Not just group them. I feel like it's an obvious answer....
  2. I think it would be nice to have more basic shapes at hand. Sure, we can make the shapes ourselves and save as assets... but it's nice to have. Shapes like clubs, spades, spirals (which DrawPlus had and I have no idea how I would create) I don't think this would be a major update. Seems simple...
  3. Are there any updates on this? It would be really useful...
  4. For certain situations, like a big project I'm working on now, this would be SO useful! (to be able to SORT my assets alphabetically) Here's a screenshot: ...unless I'm missing a way to do this. I've tried dragging them in a different order, but that didn't work. I saw nothing in the drop down about sorting.
  5. I made a GROUP of these squares which I would like to subtract from the white square/background (to create a mask)... but I can't. It seems the only way is to subtract each separate square individually. Is subtracting a group something that isn't possible in AD? Here's a screenshot: It doesn't seem to matter if it's just a group or (like what I'm doing here) a group filled with other groups.
  6. Thanks firstdefence (we posted at the same time lol)
  7. nevermind... I just ungrouped all the groups and then was able to select all the squares + white background square and then... SUBTRACT!
  8. So something like this wouldn't work?: https://creativemarket.com/dailydesignables/106447-Gold-Foil-TexturesStyles-Ai-Bundle (The .ai files)
  9. I'm in need of gold/metallic brushes for AD. I found this: https://creativemarket.com/StudioDenmark/293364-Gold-Rush-For-Illustrator Would this work in AD? I've been able to install abr's that were made for Adobe suites just fine... but I'm not sure if these would work? I mean if they are pngs... I don't see why they wouldn't. Even if it means I just have to place it in my work as a layer and maybe use masking. If this wont work, can anyone point me to where I can get (free or for purchase) Gold/metallic brushes? (I guess what I'm looking for is "brushes"... I just need the metallic look for products I'm designing.) Thanks!

    Will these work in AD? (PNG or AI brushed?)

    lol I LITERALLY just downloaded a gold pic off freepik used it as a mask Thanks!

    So ... I could buy these and use the PNG versions of these correct? I wonder if I could find something like these for cheaper. (Metallic foil)

    Free 1000 Photoshop Brushes

    Installed a few of these. Works nicely. Thank you! Attached screenshot of my experimentation:
  14. The inches don't seem to convert correctly. When I set up a document to be 21" x 18" and click pixels, it goes to 6300px x 5400px It should be 3150px x 2700px I tried another way where I set up a document as 21x18", make my design, and export. It exports much larger than 3150x2700px*. It only correctly saves at the correct pixels if I type in the specific pixels, as opposed to the equivalent inches. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? *PS: I thought it might have something to do with the DPI, but when switching from 300dpi to 150dpi** (which is what I need for Spoonflower fabric printing) and toggle back and forth between pixel and inches.... it still shows as 6300x5400px Yes, I know I could just type in the pixels but I was wondering why this was happening. And being able to accurately type in inches would be super easy (not having to figure out the correct conversion) **I think the 6300x5400px is CORRECT at 300dpi... but not at 150dpi. Why does the pixel not change is essentially what I'm asking? Also, 150dpi was not one of the presets on the dropdown menu, I had to type it out. Maybe that's the problem? Does it really matter?
  15. I turned my computer of and worked on the file the next day with less problems. Today, I'm working on a new file and it only froze once for like 2 seconds. I guess the solution is either restarting the program... OR restarting the computer.
  16. Well... I ended up using the node tool to make the body shape into the single shape (and delete the collar and breast area shapes) ... not sure if that was the best way to go about it but it looks okay now.

    DAUB Mosaic

    Just installed this. Great. Thanks for sharing!
  18. I just installed the newest update... and noticed that AD keeps crashing for like half a minute at a time. No error message (except on the header "(Not Responding)" Everything just freezes up. And then goes back to normal. Before this update, I don't recall this ever happening. It's like every two clicks I make, it freezes.
  19. Buying this today! (After updating my software.) Can't wait to see a video tutorial. I went through your tutorial on your site. Thank you. Would love to know specifically how you got those metallic looks in your example images. Beautiful! I have your texture pack. It's really awesome.
  20. I wanted to make absolutely sure before purchasing brush sets off of Creative Market... Affinity Designer can import .ai files correct? Are there any special considerations I need to consider? For example, this following brush set: https://creativemarket.com/Guerillacraft/100638-Scatter-texture-brushes-for-AI Would I encounter any problems in AD? I see on the https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/designer/full-feature-list/ that AI is included in importable file extensions but it says "Adobe® Illustrator® AI (containing PDF stream)" Not sure what the last bit means (PDF stream..?) I just wanna buy some cool brush sets on Creative Market! lol :P
  21. Thank you. Took some fudging around but what worked for me was to turn off the "move by whole pixels" button. :)
  22. I made 2 shapes and snapped them together, because I wanted to group them into one item. But as you can see in the attachment, there's a thin white (or I guess transparent) line in between. (both shapes have a fill color and the line set to transparent) Is there something I'm not doing? How can I make the line disappear? In the photo attached, the two shapes are SNAPPED together... I'd like to not have to overlap because this is something I'll be doing often (snapping+grouping) & it won't always be acceptable to just go over the edge of one shape with another. Thanks.

    Very nice :)
  24. I just saw this... and I just purchased the brush set. Imported with no issues. Getting ready to play with it now. Thanks for the freebies! :)
