  1. CreateSean, if you download the SVG, you can expand the document dimensions (File>>Document Setup) and then copy/paste the curve as needed until you have the size you need. Then combine the curves to create one background image. The attached file was created this way. It's 720px square, but it can be as large as you want with that method. To size it as a rectangle shape, create a rectangle that size and then in your layer's menu, drag the rectangle over the curve to make the curve constrain to the rectangle. See file attached. I hope this helps. floating-cogs.afdesign floating-cogs_rectangle.afdesign

    Brush zoom bug

    Thanks Chris! I was hoping this issue would be fixed in the 1.65 update, but it is not. :-( Just wondering, are there any new workarounds for this issue? Thanks again!

    Brush zoom bug

    I am using a textured intensity brush that does the same thing. The brush will change its appearance when you zoom in/out and save at different file sizes. I adjusted the mitre all the way up to 100 with no success? Is there a particular setting I can try (no rasterizing) to keep the stroke stable? As a known issue, will this possibly be resolved in the next release or in the near future? Thanks! stroke zoom bug.afdesign
  4. I'm using Affinity Designer. I have artistic text on a circular path and basic text in the center. I grouped all text together, but when I resize the group, the aspect ratio of the text changes. If I expand the group, the center text gets larger and the text on the path gets smaller. And vice versa. But, I'd like to maintain the ratio so that all text expands/decreases at the same rate. Is that possible? Is there a "scale with object" option for this? I will attach my file. text_path_resize.afdesign
  5. Thanks everyone for all of these!! I will try all of them. Can someone let me know how to access equations? Is that feature in Affinity Designer?
  6. I'm using Affinity Designer. Besides using a textured stroke or manually adjusting curves/nodes, is there another way to distort the edge of a shape? Pic below is similar to what I'd like to accomplish. I could possibly create a textured stroke to mimic this, but are there other ways or anything automatic? Thanks again!
  7. Hello, I would like the text centered at the top and bottom of a circular path.I adjusted the red/green arrows to the sides of the circle, highlighted the text, and selected "align center" for the text. This seems to be centered... is this accurate? Thanks! text center on path.afdesign
  8. Thank you firstdefense on the steps for a custom brush! And thank you gdenby for the advice about the pressure profiles. I was unaware that I could break the shape into line segments and then apply a pressure profile. I like the idea of maintaining pure vector qualities.
  9. I would like to add a stroke to a circle that is distorted as the example below. I tried using a textured brush stroke but none had the same effect as the example. I was able to edit the pressure of a basic brush stroke to somewhat achieve the effect. But, I wanted to ask the community here if I'm missing another feature in Designer that would achieve that look? How would you recreate this? Is there an easier method?
  10. Thanks for your feedback! I'm going to try this again!
  11. Hello, I'm using Affinity Designer. I would like to create a vector brush that is an eclipse shape. I followed the tutorial for creating a vector brush except I used the eclipse vector shape instead of a brush. I saved it as a png and then uploaded it as a new textured intensity brush. Unfortunately, when I draw with it, the edges are blurry and jagged. Are there any tips on how I can make this better?
  12. OK, I found that I could convert the shape to a curve, select the node at the gap, and click "break curve". This closes the stroke.
  13. AD Newbie here. Can someone provide instructions for how to do this? I would like to use a textured brush as a border around a circle, but it also has a gap. Is there a way to copy an existing brush and quickly modify it to have closed ends? Or, do I need to create a png of a stroke? What settings should I use? Thanks!
