  1. So this evening I am building some vector stoke style brushes in Affinity Designer...... and 2 things occurred that have me scratching my head 1. If I set the tail and head within the stroke limits and pull a line.....NOTHING shows on the screen ...If I move the head and the tail offset in then it shows up ( this is issue 1) 2. It appears as if the stroke panel is dictating size....notice that in the screenshot the stroke panel is set to 56 P{TS, even though the brush width is set to 200 PX....does the brush width have precedence over the stroke panel...or is in the other way around? 3rd and final issue .....if I get the line to show by adjusting the head inside....and I raise the pts up above a threshold ....I get a weird behavior where it just skips to another level....notice where the arrow is below ....that is not the shape of the brush I have been building brushes for quite a while and have never had issues like this ......any thoughts J
  2. Ok gang....this one perplexes me. I am working with embedded document feature and I understand you create a piece of art....OUTSIDE of the file....then you open a new workbook....do your thing and then "FILE ->PLACE" the workbook with the image inside of the new...and I get it is editable ...you double click to edit....etc.etc. my question is this: If I have a document and there is a layer in there or a group that I want to make an EMBEDDED document ....can I create an embedded document from INSIDE the file....? I ask because it takes time to create the image file...then save the image file ...then open up a file I want to place it in...and then bring it inside...that is a crazy work around .....I was wondeing if there was an easier work around where you click on a layer or group and can choose " make embedded file" ..and off it goes Maybe it doesn't exist ...and maybe no one else wants this feature...but figured I would ask
  3. Hey there....new issue I have never encountered before.......when I use the selection brush and refine....then make it a new layer, this is the blue line I get......can yoou explain how this is happening. I have never had this happen until the 1.7 version release.....any thoughts

I have tried everything ( going to the layer inverting, looking in the channel menu..... alt +i, Ctrl+i........ How do we make the mask inverted, I feel it should not be this hard so it is probably lack of seeing it right in front of my face on my end J
