  1. Thank you, Carl123. That tool is just what I need. Like Glicky said, I would also love to see perspective and warp tool in designer. That type of feature is the only reason that I need both programs right now.
  2. Oops. I'm going to include a better image of the photoshop stuff. I realized the image wasn't accurate.
  3. Adobe photoshop has a feature called warp that I would love to see in Affinity Photo. When you click on the warp feature, it looks similar to the perspective feature in Photo (with the grid over the image). The difference with warp is that instead of only the four spots (points that can be dragged) on the four corners, each intersection of the grid is a moveable point. This is particularly useful when trying to make shadows that make papers or cards look curled. The warp feature allows the user to bend a shadow in the center of a side instead of just pulling out the corners. I'll attach an image to show you what I mean.
  4. I just tried copying my images into a new document and resaving. I was then able to use the document setup feature. I appears the problem was specific to the two files I was working with. Weird.
  5. My designer program keeps freezing indefinitely. (I left it frozen overnight, and it never recovered.) The program is not creating crash reports because it is not crashing. It stays open and is completely unresponsive. Currently, the problem happens every time I click on the document setup button. The program doesn't show that it is working on a process. It does not show a spinning icon (the kind that shows when the computer is thinking). It does not give the message that the program is unresponsive. It just freezes. The only way to close it is by opening the task manager. The task manager does not show that the program is having any issue, even though it is frozen. I have to close the program from the task manager. I am using Windows 10, and version 1.7.1404 of designer. Thanks for your help. The program seems quite glitchy since my last update. (I updated my computer and windows a few days ago, so that is all up to date.)
  6. A feature I really miss in Affinity is my current layer always showing inside the list in the layers panel. In other programs, when I click on a layer in my image, that layer will automatically be visible in the layers panel. (The list of layers automatically scrolls to the current layer so that I can edit it from the panel easily.) Currently, when I click on a layer in my image, I have to scroll through all of the layers to find the layer in the panel. The layer is highlighted so that I can easily identify it, but it's still a pain to scroll through everything when my image is made up of tons of layers. It's very time consuming to find the layer I am looking for. I'd like it to automatically show in the layers panel. I'd love to see that as an automatic feature in the future. (If the feature is already there, and I just need to change a setting, I'd love to know how to do it. (I think it should be the default feature.) Actually, I just checked. There is an option in the user interface to "Show selection in layers panel." I do have that checked. Maybe that just means that it highlights the selection. It does not scroll the selection to the visible part of the panel.
  7. Thank you, Walt. It looks like I forgot to import the vector brushes. I still have blank categories from the old sets, but at least I have all of them now. Thanks for your help, everyone.
  8. I imported them into the pixel persona, but none of them come up in the designer persona. There are still just blank categories there. Do I need to import them separately into each persona?
  9. I just used the link included from the other thread to download and import the missing brushes, but they imported as new categories instead of repopulating the old ones. I still have a bunch of empty categories at the top of my brushes list, but the brushes are there with new labels that end in 1.6. Is that what I was supposed to do?
  10. Hi. I'm using Windows 10, and I purchased the program directly from the Affinity store. All of my brush categories are available, but they are empty. There is one solid brush in the assorted category.
  11. The brushes that come with the Affinity Designer program have disappeared. I haven't tried to use them in a very long time, so I don't know how long they have been gone (maybe since the latest update?). The brushes I created are there, but all of the categories are completely empty in pixel mode and design mode. I was able to import brushes from Photoshop, but how can I get the affinity brushes back?
  12. I'm not on an ipad. I'm on a desktop. Looks like I put this in the wrong thread. That is exactly what I needed! Thanks so much! I added it to the icons panel, which I moved to the top. Wish I could move my watermark to the top of the icons, but I'll settle for being able to find it quickly. Thank you! I've been trying to figure this out for hours.
