  1. I found the problem: the system drive ran out of disk space. This hint was only shown, after I explicitly ran the update as administrator. Thank you all for the tips!
  2. I just downloaded the three updates for Designer, Photo and Publisher, but they all fail to install. Am I the only one with this problem or is this a known issue?
  3. I hope the title is not too confusing. I have a group of elements that assemble a vertical heading and some text boxes like this: I think I got the constraints right now: I can resize the group vertically and horizontally, the heading adjusts vertically, not horizontally and the boxes resize horizontally, both are anchored top left. I now duplicated the last box and moved it downwards in order to add another element to this group, but as soon as it leaves the area of the original element it vanishes. I am clueless as I thought the duplicated element would be visible inside
  4. Thank you all very much for your examples! I tried them all (did not succeed with @Ballyshannon as my Pixels cannot be converted to curves) - and got really what I wanted! Kudos for all of you! It became obvious to me that I still do not understand the principle of masking - guess I should watch some videos and consult the Affinity book again. The lack of understanding hinders me too often to thing into the right direction - and I do not want to bother you guys with too many simple / stupid questions. Thanks a lot again! #LoveAffinity
  5. I have a screenshot of an iPhone and I would like to blur all icons except for one. My first thought was using a Mask Layer, but no matter, where I put it, I were not able to get a blurry effect. Then I painted a rectangle with rounded corners and hoped to get it inverted somehow in order to create a form to put on top of the screenshot and to give it Gaussian Blur and a low opacity, but also did not succeed. Then I watched some videos on masks, which also did not point me into the right direction. My approach - and there is probably a better solution for my demand - was to put a rec
  6. Thank you very much everybody! I will try some tools online and on my computer. I guess the combination of tools always depends on the specific demands of a project, so that there is no "good for all" tool or combination of tools. The information were very interesting though.
  7. In case somebody should be interested ... I took the original picture, applied transparency with the Transparency tool, put a rectangle in the background, added quotation signs and applied a White Balance Adjustment to all elements in order to give everything a gold colour in order to make it look warmer and older. I also changed the dimensions to a rectangle instead of the square layout, so that the font in its original spacing would fit; I also raised the line height to 125 % for a better spacing. That's it basically, I think. Einstein.afdesign
  8. Thank you for the good ideas, I will play around with some variants - including trying to make the picture partly transparent. The Einstein font is indeed a bit special - maybe I could squeeze it less and make the overall image less dramatic but rather "gold coloured" ... we will see ... again: THANK YOU ALL - I truly appreciate all the valuable input that I get from you guys!
  9. Yes, me again. I found a nice quote from Albert Einstein and wanted to some little graphics to show it in an appropriate way. The basic "gradient design" is okay, but the picture appears to hard with its sharp border, even though it is elliptical. It would be nice, if the picture would let the gradient background let shine through, but I guess I would need to make the photo's background transparent first - right? In case you would have other design ideas, just let me know - I am always keen on trying out things. Einstein.afdesign
  10. When I started with logo design, I printed all the fonts that I had, marked the ones that would meet the design purpose and tested them in several design variants. Meanwhile I have 1,700 fonts on my Windows, Google offers another 2.3k and I cannot and would not print them all. Most font managers are not design-oriented but rather listings by names etc. Currently I am, for example, trying to find a nice font for visualizing a quote from Albert Einstein. I wondered, whether there is a nice tool to dig down into the fonts by filtering script-like fonts and have a decent way to dig deeper wit
  11. OMG, I love you guys! I will give all variants a try in order to create a version that comes closest to the original - thank you again!
  12. I have a question to the design pros: I need to create "scratched fonts" like in this screenshot: I guess I have to use a brush and to erase the font to transparency ... somehow. How?
  13. Just installed version 1.6.5 and the space-invoked hand tool is still not working. Any ideas how to overcome this issue?
  14. ... especially as it is from my humble point of view quite a pro feature, when it comes to print processes.
