  1. that helped fixed the issue, thanks. Ok, so I was able to apply the 3 different stroke settings like I was looking for. I was also able to fill in the shape by duplicating the triangle before applying the stroke settings. Is there a way to now get the coloured triangle to follow the dashed stroke? So where ever there is no dash I'd like the colour to stop as well so it doesn't show through the gaps. Would I have to redraw that side of the triangle with the pen tool to follow the dashes? thanks
  2. I only did it that way because that was the only way I could think of doing it, I only drew the part of the shape to fill in the gap. But yeah my bad, I guess I'm not understanding what you are suggesting. The example you posted earlier can get me there part of the way but then it takes away the stroke from the top part of the object. Yeah, I'm working on the ipad version. I figured my question was general enough to post in this section; plus, this section seems to have a lot more activity lol.
  3. Ok, so I lied lol. I followed firstdefences's steps and I was able to apply different stroke properties for each line segment however for some reason I can't get the line segments to turn into dashed lines, not sure what I'm doing wrong; I have tried it twice now. I can try duplicating the triangle and putting it underneath however with the dashed lines, Im guessing the colour underneath is not going to follow the dashes. So when theres a gap with the line segment the colour underneath is not going to gap as well. Is there a way to get both to line up? thanks
  4. Boolean add with a locked pixel layer? I'm not too sure what that means... is there a thread I can pull up which explains it? Also, I'attached a picture of what I was trying to accomplish. I had to draw another shape on top of the gap to cover it which works however its not the cleanest result because I can't follow the same paths exactly as the original.
  5. I was able to reproduce your steps, thanks. However, I would still like to be able to fill the triangle in with a colour after making the changes to the line segments. Is that possible?
  6. I'll try that out, thanks. I'm hoping theres a simpler/better way to do it though.
  7. If I use the shape tool to make a triangle for instance. How would I then make on line segment of the triangle black dashed lines with a stroke weight of 2, the second line segment blue solid line with a stroke weight of 2, and the third line segment a solid yellow line with a stroke weight of 10. thanks
  8. My question is ver similar to this other wise I would have created a new thread. I'm working with 4 objects/curves(?) the two main objects ( in grey) and then the two lines to complete the shape. How would I turn the entire shape into one object so I can then start to fill the shape in with colour. I have tried selecting all 4 objects and choosing join and then close but it ends up creating an extra line between the 2 curved lines which ends up looking weird. thanks.
  9. In AD, is there a way to keep the planes and isometric menus on screen when working with Isometric grids. At the moment, I'll have to reopen the menu each time I want to work in a different plane. Alternatively, is there a keyboard shortcut that will allow me to jump from one plane to the other? thanks.
  10. To clarify, does this mean that all of the desktop shortcuts have now been imported to the iPad version ? I took a look at the listed shortcuts list in the app and it seems like it’s pretty similar to what was there before the update. Thanks
  11. @Madame @gdenby @Wosven Thank you to all of you guys for taking the time to reply. I was able to follow your steps and achieve what I wanted. @gdenby I definitely get what your saying about not following Illustratior tutorials because of the different features and naming conventions. I guess I’m just trying to take the approach of challenging myself to get to know Designer so well that I am able to look at pretty much whatever and reproduce it. You guys made it look really easy lol. I definitely need to mess around with the break, join, and close curve options some more to understand them better. Thanks again.
  12. If you mean you’d like to make the stroke weight thicker or thinner then: 1. Select the object 2. On the right side under the colour picker you’ll see a stroke symbol with a stroke number underneath it; click on that 3. A window should slide open containing a slider for the stroke width. You can either slide it to the right to adjust or tap it and enter a number. Hope that’s what you were looking for.
  13. Hey Guys, I’m still new to graphic design, I know this is probably a simple question but I can’t seem to figure out how to replicate this. I was watching the Aaron Draplin video below. Around the 9:30 mark he uses circles to make water waves. I tried to figure it out but I can’t seem to figure out how to replicate what he is doing. The closest I can get is align a bunch of circles with no stroke and combine the circles. Next, I put a rectangle over top and then subtract from the circles. What am I missing? I’m using designer on IPad. Thanks.
