  1. hi, all the info i read say it is possible to merge layers in Affinity Designer by: - selecting the layers you want to merge (in my case some vector layers) - choose Merge layers however, no matter what i do (right clicking, going to the layers menu) i never see the option to merge the layers?! or flatten them; drives me crazy, been looking for it now so long, help is much appreciated!
  2. hi there, i want to change my avatar here and assumed that changing it on the gravatar.com site would automatically update i here because that's the place where affinity picked it up from, right? however, i changed my avatar on gravatar quite some time ago but it does not change here; does the affinity site not check for updated avatars?
  3. thanks for your response! are you sure that is the way to change the avatar? i discovered there is a way to change current 'photo', which is the background photo (the large one) but i did not see the option to change the avatar but you are right, changing the 'photo' did change the avatar; a little bit confusing though...
  4. assumed it would be a copy on the iPad, fortunately you are right, thank you!
  5. when i start ro make a design on the imac in AD, i can save it in a dropbox folder; continuing on the ipad i can easily pick up the file and continue working on it, great! but...., i would like to save the intermediate result in its AD format in the dropbox folder so that i can continue working on the imac again; i don’t see how to make this work, saving a file on the ipad means saving it on the ipad, not in the dropbox folder; alternatively i could export the file to dropbox to pick it up in AD desktop but.... i don’t see how to export the file in the AD format; am i right that stepping forth and back between desktop and ipad is not possible/easy?
  6. hi there, i know there are lots of tutorials explaining AD for the ipad but there are still functions that i can not figure out because i have not found any detailed info about them, for instance the contextual options when an object is selected and you tick the move tool: About Centre? also: icons with a lock inside, or an eye, you can toggle these on and off but what is their goal? a detailed manual with all the AD functions would help but i have not found it yet, anybode else?
  7. thanks again, sorry i missed that!
  8. thank you, i figured out About Centre, no clue what the two other options do, you say it is explained in Help, you probably refer to another source because if i select the question mark righ bottom corner i don’t see an explanation of these options, am i missing a Help section?
  9. hi there, It seems i can not rename Artboard1, Artboard2 etc. in names i prefer, am i right or overlooking something?
  10. thanks, but i see 5 icons in the top of the layers panel ,one of them trash, not sure what you mean with ellipses sorry, missed the three dots, gonna check again ok ,found it! not very obvious at first glance imo
  11. alfred, off topic, very nice font you are using for your name! home made? am surprised that my browser shows it this way, so it might be a 'standard' typeface, recognized by browsers; EDIT never mind, just noticed that you have been creative with your keyboard, funny!
  12. hi there! i love AD on my iPad Pro and am surprised by all the features that are crammed into it; there is one issue that needs to be resolved imo: 1. made a design on AD on iMac 2. saved it to Dropbox 3. opened it on iPad Pro but the result on iPad is not the same as on the desktop, see attachments; the circular text is placed differently (beginning and ending point) and does not seem to fit on the iPad
  13. finally got it! downloaded the font from fontsquirrel, put it in dropbox (after unzipping), went to AD preferences Fonts, choose the cloud icon, went to dropbox, selected the desired fonts, went back to AD, closed the app, reopened it and voila, in preferences/fonts the new fonts are visible (appearently here are only the the imported fonts shown, why?); started a new document in AD and the new fonts are there to use! thanks for the help; now let’s see how nadal is doing...:-)
  14. wow, that was not very obvious to me! but tapping helped and now i installed the font thru fontsquirrel (after deleting it first in system/settings) in AD on ipad the font is still not available in a new document; another 'new' experience: if i go to preferences in AD on the ipad and select Fonts i get an empty black screen?! why are the fonts that AD uses not visible here? there is a cloud button and a trash can button, i think the cloud button is supposed to pick up fonts from outside AD? if i click this button however i get a ton of suggested documents on drive, dropbox etc.; no idea how to pull a font out of here, i have been a imac/ipad user from the beginning but never felt like a stranger like this before :-(
  15. when i go to settings/general/profile on my ipad pro there is only one item: PT_Serif-Web-Regular.ttf signed by: not signed is this normal? is there way to see all the other installed fonts on the ipad?
  16. switched from chrome to safari: same story, no ipad install option...
  17. weird: the pt serif font is now visible in the AD document and looks good; within that same document i can add new text using pt serif; if i go to another document to add text pt serif is no longer an available font, it simply does not show up in the list of fonts! it seems that pt serif is constrained to only that document that was initially produced in AD desktop and from there via dropbox transported to ipad; i also tried the suggested route of fontsquirrel: i can find pt serif there but do not see an option to 'install on ipad' as suggested, only the download option
  18. thanks again for all your help, great community!
  19. the PT font was in the 1000+ fonts bundle i got thru itunes :-)
  20. i tried to find the PT font in my iMac system (system/library/fonts) but it was not there; could this be because it's a google font?
  21. ok, just got AnyFont! there are several routes to install fonts, i read, will iTunes sharing be the simplest/fastest to use? the route route seems to be: sending yourself an e-mail with the font EDIT: also bought the fonts bundle for AnyFont, which contains PT serif; only 99 cents :-) now, if i want to use a font i need to select it in AnyFont and install it; then restart AD and voila; i did it this way and it worked ok, just wondering if this is the cleverest approach; for a moment i thought that, by installing AnyFont, all these fonts would be available right away but it turned out you still have to install them within AnyFont; unless i am doing something stupid!
  22. guys, thanks for the extremely quick and adequate replies! never installed additional fonts on my ipad but will give it a try, using your instructions!
  23. now i see that the font is different! could it be that this problem is caused by the fact that the iPad can not handle the used font (PT serif)?
  24. thank you! i was pretty sure that the possibility of merging layers in AD was explained somewhere (but where was that...) but maybe is was about AP, when you are googling for affinity answers there is often no mention of AD or AP; yes, i discovered the boolean operations in AD and i was especially interested in the intersection of 2 layers (that consisted of a number of vector rectangles etc.) but i found out that the intersection operation only worked on single overlapping objects; i keep discovering :-)
