  1. Thank you all! I knew there must be some way to fool it, but I was blanking. Boolean operations to the rescue
  2. I have a triangle shape that I need to be identical to another, and for ease I shift+alt+click+drag to duplicate, then rotate 180 degrees. Finally, I select the Frame Text Tool and click the selected shape. When I start typing, the text is backwards. Is there any way to effectively "reset" the shape so the computer sees it as being in an original orientation instead of rotated/backwards?

    TestImage with flaws and questions...Designer

    This issue is truly frustrating. Who has time to go through an entire piece to "add precision" to every single element??
  4. It's... so lovely. I come to this thread every couple weeks just to drool. And to make sure I haven't missed a beta release

    Very cool. Thanks!
  8. +1 I need better bleed capabilities as mentioned above all the time. E'ry day.
  9. I disagree with @harrym. The Photoshop version looks more refined, but maybe that's because you're not yet familiar with AP, @umishrak. Keep it up!

    A drawing - from start to finish

    @giantlobsterprd learned two excellent methods from you today that I'm really excited about. 1. Using a master shape and then overlaying smaller shapes to create your line art is pure genius. Up to this point I've been drawing each individual section of line which means I have about 40 million curves in my layers panel: very inefficient use of time and difficult to organize or edit. 2. Using dotted lines to create your halftones is also brilliant. I had previously made halftones with hundreds of individual circles which was again time consuming and messy. Thank you for passing on your techniques!

    I have this same problem. It is extremely frustrating!

    New Logo Please!

    For what it's worth (next to nil), I like the current icons. I think they look cool.

    Comic POW

    Practicing with @Frankentoon's comic book brushes and color and gradient swatches, so decided to start with something simple. Funny how when you try something you realize how much more you have to learn about it. Gotta work on those line weights...
  15. Not sure if this is still your intended flow, but I'm interested in... Saving time with Adjustment Layers (Hadn't even thought of this. Interested to see what you recommend.) Comic-Style Inking with Designer (I already bought your ebook, but some videos would be helpful!) Background Design: A Magical Forest (I'm scared of backgrounds for some reason) Background Design: The Castle of Darkness Sketching with Affinity Designer and Pixel Persona (So far I just sketch in a physical notebook and transfer to AD for vectorizing/inking/coloring.)
