  1. In the layers panel select the 'Screen' blend mode or try other blend modes as a temporary work around. The default blend mode is 'Normal', but seems to distort shapes and lines as in my example. Setting blend mode to screen worked for my printing issue. Hope it works for you. Although it's not a permanent solution.
  2. Hi Sean, please see attached images of printouts. Printer HL-2142 DPI 300 In Print Dialog: Profile = Custom ( default setting ) Range - Artboards Pages = ( default setting none ) Fit Type = Scale Include = All Sheets Orientation = Automatic Blend Mode = Normal ************************ In Layers Panel Blend mode = Normal Resulting in printouts as below. Setting the print model to Tiled or N-up removed the red preview screen ( there's more than one Artboard). Setting the blend mode to Multiply or Colour Burn ( or possibly anything other than normal) removes the black printouts and distorted lines. Steve

    Hi Walt, See images below of ver 1.6.5.123 showing labels - not in list mode
  4. Hi Sean P, I did some tests and determined the following. In the print dialog to print my file, I had to do the following. In the model property box select Tiled or N-up. This avoids the red screen. In the layers panel, I did the following. for the Blend mode: select Screen or Multiply or Colour Burn (possibly other modes). This prints everything correctly without distortions. I'm not sure this is how it was intended, but it works. Steve Casey
  5. Could the printing issue I'm experiencing be due to running Windows 7 rather than Windows 10?
  6. Hi Sean, Thanks for your reply, I have attached the file as requested. Bull Dog 1981 WIP - Reworked Steps.afdesign

    Just to clarify, it was the style panel I was referring to. But I was referring to the cogs that represent the style. I slipped up in calling them a symbol. I really hope a label can be enabled in the non list mode.

    Sorry my bad.i was talking about styles. What I said applies to styles not symbols. Everything I mentioned actually applies to the styles panel. I must have been half asleep. I still believe labels should apply when you toggle the list option. That’s how it worked in previous versions, with out the list option. And if not, why even have the option to rename when list mode is disabled. My apologies for the typo.

    In 1.6 for custom symbols there was no list mode. The symbols were simply created line by line. The was an option to rename the symbol. In the latest version the option still remains. But only shows in list mode. It requires the user to scroll. When not listed at least 3 to 6 symbols are views at once. Having labels is useful to assign line weights and avoid mis selection of line styles. Particularly for my purpose, which is drawing origami diagrams. For consistency and intuitiveness the label are good idea, when you toggle the list option.

  11. I loaded a file created in Affinity Designer Version 1.6.5.123 into the latest version 1.7.0.367. When I printed the 6 page document, whole pages where printing dark grey (almost black), some pages OK, and some graphic elements totally distorted. By distorted I mean the line weight was altered, from a .5pt line to a much thicker line when printed. Another thing that stood out, was, in the Print dialog the preview was displayed in a red shade. Is this a feature or a bug? I would prefer to see the preview in the colours as created in the document. Has the current version changed so much that previously created document may not print correctly?
  12. In the latest update of Affinity Design ver 1.7.0.367, when you create a new style in the Style Panel, and you choose to *not* show the styles as a list, (As in version 1.6.5.123 ) currently no label is displayed to identify the style.
  13. Thank you for the prompt response, RC-R and Alfred. So essentially it's just a bit of fun the programmers put in, and all users will experience the altered icons?. It really obscures some the Origami styles I use, and I was unaware of the feature. I wonder if I could have that feature removed! I deleted some of the imported styles my friend sent me, and re-installed the program, and lost a fair bit of time trying to work out why the panel changed. I guess that could be an issue in a commercial situation. A bit of warning or a message would have been great. So now hopefully there won't be any more surprises. Thanks once again.
  14. Recently I received some vector art files from a friend, including his Assets, and Styles FILES. After viewing them in Affinity Designer, I noticed that the standard icons in the Styles panel had been customised into a cat shape, rather than the COG shape that is standard in my version of Affinity, version 1.6.4. I have tried holding down CRTL while loading, and then selecting the reset options in the dialog, and that did not work. Has anyone had a similar issue and resolved it. If so, can you run me through the steps to fix it.
