  1. Pretty much what I am doing. Very inefficient though. But doesn’t work on curves...
  2. Dying for this feature, will have to move to Illustrator for the time being unfortunately...Hate paying $20/month. My Sewing Pattern Request Thread:
  3. Hey got a request to speed up pattern making with these functionalities seen in Adobe Illustrator Video is long, but here are the functionalities that would speed up workflow. 1) 3:52 When a line is selected you can press "Return" and the Move menu Pops Up with fields already highlighted so you can tab through and enter your desired measurement. What I am doing now: clicking on the fields in the Transform field is very inefficient. I believe CAD programs also have this functionality 2) 5:13 Quick Dimensioning with new shapes. When a new shape is made, you can quickly enter dimension of the new shape with a pop up screen. Much better than clicking the Transform box. 3) 9:32 Offset Path (something I already mentioned in different thread), but this pop up offset path is significantly faster than the Affinity workaround. 4) 17:41 Scissor Tool (Cutting Lines of a Closed Shape) - Right nowI have been selecting the node breaking the curve and then deleting the node. The scissor tool in adobe does not require doing all this. 4) 18:08 Measuring Path of Curved Line (Document Info) I know there are workarounds, but they are just too slow and inefficient. Thanks
  4. I just tried both, it seems that I like to choose Command and Drag because I can also hold down Shift to keep that duplicated object aligned to the original one. Alt and Drag Disables Snapping
  5. With the latest Mac Update, it seems that I am having a lot of trouble adjusting to the Cloning Hot Key (Command + Drag) that seems so different now. I use to do it with ease, but now what happens is that I end up just dragging the original to the location where I want to clone. Anyone else?
  6. Oh ok, that is pretty much what I have been doing. Though there was much more efficient way. Or set everything same width. Draw separate line that measures the distance I want and drag the the one side of the outer rectangle so is is appropriate distance by aligning with that line I made.
  7. Desperately need it for sewing grading patterns. I have tried the workarounds, but it just doesn't work out the way I want it with complex sewing patterns for seam allowances. I want to stay with Affinity so bad though.
  8. Yeah, still tons of value for the price. What I mean is different gaps between only only two strokes. Say I have a rectangle. I want one side to be .25”, one side to have a .5” gap, and the other to have a 5/8”. For the distance between the two strokes. It is all based on single stroke width, so it is not possible at the moment. Not sure if Adobe has it, never used their Illustrator.
  9. I am trying to set my stroke to align outside. When I set it on miter join (square edges), some of the edges stay in bevel join.
  10. Wow, thanks. I guess I am still out of luck for having different lengths (seam allowances) on each side correct since it is all based on single stroke thickness. The node, cap, align for stroke can be buggy at times as well. Had to restart.
  11. This is the workaround: So pretty much, you make a stroke of the width that you actually want between the two lines. Then you expand the stroke. Hit reverse so the stroke color and fill in are flipped. Now you got two lines that are separated by the width of your initial stroke. It seems you can't change it so the seam allowance line is dotted only while maintaining solid line are outer line. Also I require different width on the sides.
  12. For Affinity Designer, when an object is selected with the Move Tool, is there a hot key to: 1) Change X and Y coordinates from current location? 2) Resize dimensions without moving my mouse to put my cursor to type in dimensions (width and height)? 3) Or when Rectangle or Circle Tool is selected, to hotkey dimensions in Aka adding a pop up for coordinates and dimensions when this hotkey is pressed, and then another hot key to close that window. Thank You!

    Offset Paths

    I have the same needs as firstdefence, although I don't understand your instructions. Is Offset Tool in development? EDIT: Nevermind found this thread: I am all good!
  14. So I ended up trying Iconmoon, worked right away. Nothing was wrong with my icons at all. It was just Fontastic. Thanks again
  15. Ok Thanks! I did try that, but still Fontastic does not accept it? I will upload the new file. I exported the SVG as "Selection without background". The only thing that is checked on the export is "Set viewBox" Titanium.svg
  16. I know this thread is from last year, but I can't seem to get my Icon Font to register on Fontastic. I have expanded the strokes already. What do you mean by flatten al vector layers/elements? My icon is on a single artboard. Titanium.svg
  17. Hi guys! I am practicing placing products specifically clothing on different backgrounds. Does something seem off to you guys? It does to me, but I can't pinpoint. So the jacket was on a white background. I cut out the white background. Placed in the wood background. Then added an outer shadow in similar, but darker color to the wood background. I added slight inner shadow. As a photographer, I am trying to find a way to minimize the amount of large wood backgrounds. I want to be able to take a picture of any product and realistically place it on any background matching shadows and highlights of the background I am putting it on. Just as if I really had this wood background. These photos aren't mine, but just practicing.

    How can I make this more realistic?

    Alright, thanks. I might have to end up getting real backdrops. I don't really think it is feasible long term. So this is the best I got.

    How can I make this more realistic?

    Ok, thanks for response! Does this look better? I duplicated background and you could probably tell, but what is the method for seamless feathering? I just went to Affinity Photo and used the Inpainting Brush. Not sure if there is a better method. Is there a way so that duplicated background doesn't look so obviously duplicated?
