    Hi catlover,

    This is intentional. When you click 'Bake appearance' it will convert the contour to regular geometry meaning it can no longer be removed. If you wish to create a contour and later remove it then don't use 'Bake appearance', and then just set the Contour to be 0mm if you wish to remove it.

    The contour will never add an additional stroke - instead it just lets you increase and offset the fill by the desired amount.


    I hope the official Affinity Tutorial Man ATM will have a great tutorial to explain this tool. It's still a mystery.

    Hi CyberAlien,

    Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

    Affinity apps are now able to import .ase (Adobe Swatch Exchange) files besides our own format. Are you able to generate a palette in that format?

    To import them go to the Swatches panel, click the small menu icon on the top right of the panel and select Import Palette..., then the type of palette you want (document/application or system palette) and finally select the .ase file from the dialog that will open.

    What about gradient in .ase file format? I couldn't get them to import.

  3. It would be handy to be able to keystroke click back out to the next (parent)group of objects that housed a particular object inside its group. In other words if I've clicked an object inside a group, maybe 1 or two groups deep, if there was a way to select the parent group with a keystroke somehow would be great. I know you can find your way backwards to find the parent group in the layers panel but any shortcut to the parent group inside of groups would be very useful.

  4. I guess what I'm after is a quick access library (assets) of jpegs, pngs, or eps files of vector artwork that I could use at a low res, so that I can create the doc without being bogged down by huge placed files. Similar to how Indesign places files and has the option to work in "Fast Mode" or whatever they call it.

  5. Will it be possible to use an asset as a link in the document? I use vector wall brick patterns for architectural mockups and having a library of different brick colors and patterns at my disposal in the assets would be awesome. But only as a low res link so that I can move quickly in the document.
