  1. I am a user of ViaCAD 11 Pro as well as the Affinity trio. I always get the display message that Via CAD has reverted to Windows 7 basic colour scheme when I stat Via CAD. Affinity Photo and the beta refuse to start while ViaCad is open. It prompts me that Windows Aero is needed. I have no idea what it is. So now, i have to use some other program when I am working with ViaCad to save the captured screenshots.
  2. Thanks, I will investigate.
  3. Yes, I include the url for you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDZONrrCh64 I only want to draw cut lines for printing to the correct size on an ordinary A4 paper printer.
  4. I am new to Affinity Designer. I just managed to get to work comfortly with Affinity Photo on PC. I have it since November. The Photo for iPad, I purchased about six weeks ago (when I purchased an iPad) and I manage. It is not so much different if you know Android. However, it was a learning process the learn how iOs operates. I purchased the iPad Designer a few days ago and I am trying to get my feet wet. I recently watched a video from Ian Atkinson, using Adobe Illustrate, where he place a camera photo (of a knife) on a document. He measured the length of the knife and then used a command where he states that measurement between two points. AI then scaled the document correctly. I assume he must specify somewhere what the paper size will be. He then draws outlines for his leather cut list to make a pouch and accurately prints them. Can this be done in Designer for iPad, or must I make two points, print and then calculates on what scale I must print and reprint? I can also start a template with the right dimensions and place a ruler image as a layer and then scale the object according to the ruler?

    Selective flip

    I will play with all the info I got. Thank you guys.

    Selective flip

    With the flip command, all layers flipped. I will try again.
  7. I have no idea how it works. On grounds of you guys, I just bought it. Only the iPad version. I have Photo for PC and iPad, and if it is half as good as I expext, I know it wil works wonders.

    Selective flip

    I noticed that if I make a selection or if I select a layer, everything reacts to a flip command. Is it possible to flip something selected and not everything.

    Toolbox option

    In the PC desktop version of Affinity Photo I can customize the left hand side by choosing which buttons appear and which not. Can it be done in Affinity Photo for iPad? Alternatively, can a script be recorded and a button added to it interactively and moved to the left side?

    Jpg export garbage, so disappointed...

    I am mostly using Affinity Photo, although I have Photoshop CS6 and Paintshop Pro 2018. I export my affinity photos to Jpg for my web page. I am an author and post my book cover pages. I only get a little larger size if I prefer the size to be big. The quality is exceptional. I can define dpi as well. I can assure you Affinity Photo do not have to back down for other apps.

    Fading edge on selection/crop seeked

    GabrielM, it is working. In the iPad version I made the sellection and nothing happened apart from the sellection ellips appearing. So I canged back to ordinary persona, select Paste boards, copy, and new pixel layer, sellect the layer, back to Paste boards and paste. Then it is there. I need the edge to be about five times wider, the section where the sellection fades to transparent. The biggest edge effect is with feathering at 7.5, but I guess the image pixel size is the determining factor.

    Fading edge on selection/crop seeked

    It did not work as I wanted. I then tried duplicating a layer and applied a mask to it. I inverted it and draw what i needed wit a very large blush widt and a 1% hardness. It worked as I needed.

    Fading edge on selection/crop seeked

    Thank you GabrielM, I wil give it a try.
  14. I am not shure if I am using the correct terminology. I want to make a ellipse selection of a person's face and paste it as a new layer over another background. I want the elipse sellection's edge to fade to nothing on the edges, as wide as a pencil (1/4 inch). Almost like a vignette, but it fades to transparent nothing.

    Layer Selection

    Thanks. I have not tried that, only long press.
