  1. Do I have to do this for every line? And also - really quickly. I am trying to draw lines using brushes. I select the brush for Hair, make a line with pen tool. But then it just makes the same settings of line as my last image. I have to keep clicking on the Brush Hair icon to revert it. Any idea why this is? Do I always have to keep clicking on the appropriate brush to get the line to change to it? Or can i select it then start using the pen tool to make several lines?
  2. Okay, so in Affinity Designer, let's say i click on an object I created. I goto STROKES -> PRESSURE then adjust the pressure to whatever look I want. I finish, hit Escape, goto the Pen tool to make the next lines. The problem is, the Brush is still on the STROKE/PRESSURE of the previous line. I have to now goto STROKES -> PRESSURE -> RESET to get it back to normal. This also happens when I remove a Stroke. I click the object, goto STROKE, his the \ to remove the stroke, then fill the color. But now when I goto PEN to make a new line, the stroke is still turned off and I have to reactivate it. How do I make it so every new line has the pen revert back to it's default state? Or have I been approaching my lines all wrong when it comes to hiding strokes and adjusting pressure?
  3. I am so excited to test out the Designer Grids! Them not scaling to the art board was a huge bump in learning Isometric work.
  4. So I've been having some serious issues with Grid management on the windows version of Photo. It doesn't ever line up properly with the size of the canvas which is quite an irritation. This is how it looks with Auto Grid turned on. See how the right side is cut off? What is causing this?
  5. This is becoming rather irritating as the grids never line up properly with my art boards as they cover the entire work area - not just the individual board I have selected. Mac does not seem to have this problem if I go by the videos I've been watching.
  6. So I have 2 art boards but whenever I want a grid to appear for just one (isometric on one, normal on the 2nd), it just slaps the entire grid over the entire project. How can I get the grid to strictly stay on one specific board? Using the Windows version.
  7. So, I am learning vectoring, coloring, etc with Affinity Designer and I am reading some tutorials on different projects I want to try. One such tutorial has steps to blend 2 colors together then extract the shades from the blend to create a palette. The steps for Illustrator are listed in the attachment and I am wondering if Design has the same ability?
  8. So I have a gamer mouse that has 2 side buttons (buttons 4 and 5) and i am wanting to bind one of those buttons to the Toggle Fix Context (default X) but when I try to click those buttons while in the shortcut menu, it doesn't record the mouse click. What would i need to do to get this to toggle with the side mouse buttons?
  9. My dad bought me Affinity Designer and I have the product key printed out. How do I go about downloading it to activate? I cannot find a download section that isn't to also purchase it.
  10. I am sure this is mostly user error but it would be appreciated if someone can point out if I am doing something wrong. So I use the Color picker alot. The problem is, every time i sample a color, it moves to the background circle on the color panel. This means when I goto my pixel or paintbrush, I have to switch the foreground and background colors every time to get the color I picked. Am I just missing something when I am trying to sample colors? I apologize if this is something simple that I am just messing up on You can see I sampled the color gray/blue on the color picker. It shows it on the front most color circle. But then when i select another tool, it moves it to the background color forcing me to switch it every time. Is there just an option I keep missing? I appreciate the assistance.
  11. So this is a brand new issue I just started having. I am doing pixel work and whenever I move or flip the image, or even merge two layers, the pixels suddenly become a blurred mess. I am not even resizing them. They just blur randomly whenever I try basic editing. This pixel work is very important for the game I am working on but this blurring problem is stopping my entire production ORIGINAL: Flipped: Merged The same blurriness also occurs whenever I move these around the canvas if there is objects on the background. Please help.
