  1. The 2048 value refers to levels of pen pressure, not pixel resolution. The active area of the tablet is mapped to your computer screen, so the drawing resolution is determined by that. A small Wacom Intuos tablet (active area 6″ × 3.7″, or 7″ diagonal) costs about £90. The medium version (active area 8.5″ × 5.3″, or 10″ diagonal) — as used by the creator of the ‘May the 4th’ painting — costs twice as much. Both of these models offer 4096 levels of pen pressure. If you’re willing to consider alternatives to Wacom you can get a bigger tablet for less money. I bought my XP-PEN Deco 03 (
  2. There are times when it would be useful to be able to restrict the source area for the Inpainting Brush Tool but in general it does work extremely well.
  3. Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @Sunsirray. No fonts are automatically installed with the Affinity apps, they just use whatever fonts are available on your computer. If you’re unsure whether you’re covered for your intended use, check the licences for the fonts in question.
  4. I’m curious about how @liumingming arrived at the 80% figure, but we can’t create macros, only import them (and only as collections of macros, not single macros). There are also some colour functions missing, including import and export of palettes, and there is no glyph browser.
  5. That sounds very trying indeed! When you import it into AD, what do you end up with?
  6. Why use a screen capture, throwing away the advantages of using a vector pattern? If you can’t create the same thing in Affinity Designer, you should at least be able to open an SVG file saved from Inkscape and clip it to the shape you want to fill.
  7. How was the attached image produced? I see a drop shadow on the ‘La Cumplida Refinada’ examples but not on the others.
  8. Is the image in question from a digital camera? I’m wondering whether the switch from portrait to landscape is caused by orientation info from the EXIF data.
  9. To be fair, the original post in this thread explicitly refers to AP. Having said that, you did say “I don’t use Artboards” instead of “I don’t have Artboards”; saying that you don’t use them implies that you could do, but that would only apply to a document which was created or edited in AD.
  10. Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @alvinw. Please clarify what you mean by “snapping to local”. Local with respect to what? Perhaps it would help if you could attach a sample file.
  11. If I’ve correctly understood your description of the problem, you need to apply the ‘Expand Stroke’ command to the ‘outline’ version of the eye shape. This will convert it from a stroke to a filled shape, and the ‘Divide’ command should then produce the desired result.
  12. In the top right-hand corner of each forum post there is an ellipsis. Click on it to display a popup menu listing the available options. If you click on ‘Share’ you’ll get a further popup with a ‘Link to post’ box containing the URL of the post in question, and if you copy that URL and paste it into another post it will give you (by default) something like this: You will also be presented with an option to change the way it’s displayed:
  13. It’s too long ago since I last looked at this, so I’m afraid I’m not sure of the details. I only mentioned it because I remembered that Terrance Weinzierl’s Rebus Script uses the feature to substitute line drawings for certain letter combinations (e.g. a bed wherever the letters b, e, and d appear in sequence). Edit: Please see the rebus vocabulary chart on pages 10 and 11 of the Ascender Font Pack 2010 User Guide. By the way, the name of the OpenType feature is ‘Contextual Alternates’ (plural). My apologies!
  14. Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, Brian. All filter effects are rasterized on output. If you replace the Gradient Overlay with a simple yellow-to-orange gradient fill applied via the Fill Tool (with no intermediate colour stops, only the end ones) you should find that the resultant SVG is completely vector.
