  1. Thanks everyone for all of these ideas!! This is very helpful!
  2. Thanks everyone! GarryP what settings did you use in your example? Thanks for your examples firstdefense and R C-R. This is very helpful! R C-R, how did you create the "Compound" folder group? I'm familiar with selecting objects and then selecting the "add, subtract, etc.," but I haven't created them in the way you did.
  3. Hello, I have a 10X10 grid. Is it possible to create a dashed stroke that breaks on the grid? I tried different dashed settings, but I was unable to make the dash break where the grid intersects. Thanks! dashed line.afdesign
  4. After updating to the latest Affinity, I seem to be missing the Affinity vector brush set that contained objects, like a rope, chain, etc. It doesn't appear on my brush menu anymore. Can anyone help me relocate those brushes? I'll attach a picture of the ones I have. Thanks!
  5. This is still an issue with For those who use vector brushes, please zoom in and out with navigator to check if the positioning of the brush stroke is changing with the zoom. This does not always happen, but sometimes the brush stroke will change its positioning. If the brush stroke is changing its positioning (see my stroke.zoom.bug attachment above as an example), exporting your art at different sizes (example 2000px vs 1000px) will create artwork that is not consistent in appearance. Selecting "scale with object" for the stroke does not fix this issue. Until this is resolved, see potential solutions already mentioned in this post. Another solution is to enlarge the image and then copy/paste the stroke to inkscape (free program) for tracing. Then, paste the traced vector into your affinity artwork. Obviously, you won't be able to adjust the brush stroke anymore, and the vector brush stroke may not 100% match the original because tracing is not always exact. But, this solution can work for certain situations to keep the artwork stable when exporting at different sizes.
  6. Hi all, I created a shape using eight square 10X10 symbols. I used the grid view and snapped the squares into a 10px spacing grid. Now I notice that when I turn the grid off, there are grid lines around the squares. The grid lines disappear when viewing the document at 1000%. When I export as JPEG, I can see the grid lines. There is no stroke around the symbol, but if I add a stroke, the grid lines seem to disappear. I'd rather not add a stroke unless I need to. And, I'd like to use squares instead of rectangles. Is there a setting I'm unaware of that I should select to remove the grid lines, or is this a bug that hasn't been resolved yet? My file is attached. Thanks for your help. gridlines.afdesign
  7. Hello, In AD, I created an artboard that is 8.5" X 11" (standard paper, 3300x2550px) and placed two 5"X7" images (1500X2100px) into the artboard. File attached. When I export to print, I see the option to automatically add crop marks and bleed to the artboard. However, it adds these marks around the artboard and not the actual images. In this situation, is my only option to add the crop marks and bleed to the file by hand? Or, is there some automation feature that could help me with this? If I need to do by hand, is there a preferred way to do that? The result would be a PDF that could be printed using 8.5"X11" paper and have marks where the image should be cut. Thanks! 8.5X11artboard.afdesign
  8. If you are asking how to apply a vector texture to your image, please take a look at the file I attached to see how it was done. The flag group was dragged into the texture group to constrain the textures to the flag.
  9. I see! Yes, try experimenting with vector grunge textures. I think a combination of those will help you achieve your flag graphic without having to find or create brushes.
  10. Another idea... If you create the flag using basic shapes in AD, you can apply a vector grunge texture on top of the flag to create that look. Attached is an example of an American flag with a vector grunge texture overlay. You can download free grunge textures online to experiment with. I hope this helps! American Flag.afdesign
  11. 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
  12. 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!
