  1. I'm pleased there is a work around, but there really shouldn't have to be a work around for something so basic.
  2. I have multiple shapes (curves) which I want to Add (combine). But when I do it gives me a weird shape. See below. First screen grab is uncombined, second one is combined. When combined the one horizontal line has been made into a triangle!!!!!!! I've tried using Add and Subtract three times. All three times it hasn't worked. This is a joke. CW glow C.afdesign
  3. That's strange. I've just tried combining two shapes and the same problem. And this is the first time I've tried combining. So two attempts and both fails. I get weird shapes. I'm following the tutorial video here: https://vimeo.com/153090767. I've made the "blood" shapes at the top of the page and then tried to combine the tear drop shape (using the ALT key so it is non-destructive). And it just produces weird shapes. Although after trying several times it now works and I can't now get it to not to work (I'd have liked to have posted it on here)!
  4. Wow. The first boolean operation I need to do in Affinity and it can't do it. And it's the easiest subtraction. This really sucks.
  5. Affinity Photo and Designer are not able to make vector paths/lines from a selection or to trace a bitmap image and convert it to vector. This is a real pain. Can I suggest Affinity spends less time on developing new software (Publisher and iPad versions) and more time adding features to the core apps that we take for granted with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
  6. I have a ring / donut shape. On top I have a square, at an angle. I am trying to subtract the square from the ring, to create a letter C. But Affinity Designer doesn't seem to be able to do this. All I get after subtracting is a weird shape. See below: I've just retried the subtraction and it now works. I've tried a third time and again I get the strange shape. It is inconsistent. CW logo big C.afdesign
  7. I'm coming from an Illustrator background (ditched it because it's too expensive). I love the way in Designer I can select my objects, then go to Export and 'Area: selection without background' so that I don't have to resize the artboard when making SVGs. But if I do want to resize my artboard to fit my objects, there are a lot more steps than in Illustrator. I've got to Insert a new artboard, the same size as my selection. Then in the Layers panel, move my selection to the new artboard, then delete the old artboard. It doesn't seem very intuative.
  8. I've made an artboard larger than my artwork, selected the artwork and then using the Artboard Tool gone to Size and Selection (assuming that this would resize the artboard to the size of the selected objects), but it doesn't do anything. What's going on?
  9. So if I create a new A4 document, this isn't an A4 artboard. There is a difference between a "page" and an "artboard"? Seems needlessly confusing. I've just tried this. Created an A4 document (and didn't select 'Create Artboard'), then made an artboard using the Artboard Tool. The original A4 "page" thing, then disappears. I think Illustrator is much better at this - less confusing - there isn't a difference between a document/page and an artboard. Thanks for your help
  10. I've created a new document. Made some artwork and now want to resize the artboard, to a specific size (which isn't the same size as my artwork). How do I do this? I've gone to the Help menu and followed the instructions: Selected the Artboard Tool, but how do I select the artboard? I've tried double clicking in the artboard, but just lots of green and red lines appear. I can't see an artboard in the layers panel. Perhaps this isn't an artboard, but a page? Do you have to make an artboard first, or does a new document come with an artboard?
  11. Hi. Thank you and yes you're right I should have looked myself. Thanks again.
  12. Thanks for the link. Can I ask the Black and White Adjustment layer - is that a bitmap: the pixels are either black or white (no greyscale)?
  13. If I change the Colour Format of an image to Greyscale, it looks much darker than if I add a Black and White Adjustment layer. Is one Greyscale and one literally black and white? Does this account for the difference? Thanks
