  1. Hello, I am using Designer for character creation for animation. The structures for animation can be quite complicated to develop characters for programs such as Cartoon Animator 4. I'd really like to be able to print all the layers (groups and pixel layers) in the layers window or panel as a text list that would show the hierarchy from top to bottom. Would this be possible for you to implement please? I have attached an image from CA4 which is rudimentary (regarding the actual groups and layers) compared to the PSD file I have attached that makes up the image which I would like to be able to print out. I know you can save it as a template but there is always a possibility of mistakes or leaving something out without an actual list. If you open the attached PSD then you'll understand why someone would need to have a printed list. This could also be useful for character creation for other programs such as blender etc. Human_Sketch_Front_Full.psd
  2. I went and bought Cartoon Animator 4 and it works great with AD. Thanks
  3. I did as you suggested and that's all I get is this (attached)
  4. Thanks! male_swimmer.svg male_swimmer2.svg flat_male_swimmer.svg
  5. I can't get it to work either in Blender 2.8 beta release candidate.

    Product mockup with Affinity and Blender

    What file did you import the artwork as please? I am having trouble in Blender 2.8 beta. Whenever I import an SVG file into 2d option I don't see anything...
  7. Hello, I have MOHO 12 and was hoping to use Affinity Designer to draw objects and then import them into MOHO. When I try to import a file exported from A.D. as a PSD, MOHO will not import it as a multi-layered file as shown in this video using a layered Photoshop PSD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0FsrvfYfew Instead I get this message about the PSD file that I have created and exported in Designer (image attached) I wrote to Smith Micro also and they gave this reply... Moho Pro 13 supports import of PSD Layered Files. This functions seamlessly with Photoshop. I am not sure if there is something specific to Affinity Designer Files that would impact the import. I do know if you change the PSD File created in Photoshop, it will automatically update the Moho Pro 13 Layered files. This function does not extend to other applications that create PSD Files. SVG Files are imported as Vector Line Files that can be modified and altered using the tools in Moho Pro 13 to import multiple Layers of SVG, you need to import each layer as a separate Import. I have tried copying and pasting single layers, that doesn't work. So it seems like a tedious workflow, where I prefer to do the drawing etc in A.D. and import into MOHO. It's pretty much the leading and recommended 2D program for animation in just about every article I have read. It would be great if Serif could speak with Smith Micro and have them add Designer files as an import option (they have perhaps not considered the popularity and growth of A.D.) or figure out what the difference is between one PSD and the other. Any suggestions would be a big help. Thanks Al
  8. I only then have the option to import as a single layer, so have to do it the way in the video. I wrote to Smith Micro also and they gave this reply...

  10. Check your actual keyboard language settings in your OS, it could have somehow changed to a different language. Mine flips to Dovark English or something every now and again...
  11. I would seriously encourage this also... You could design some great looking slides in Designer and Publisher, export as a PPT file, import to Powerpoint and then use them in Learning Management System software such as ISpringsuite or Articulate Storyline (which can import PPT files for education and tutorials).
  12. Hello, I downloaded a demo document from the home screen when Publisher opens. The "save" and "save as" options are grayed out and it says it can't be exported. Although this is not a bug, I was hoping to keep the document for some design inspiration and as a guide in the future. This isn't an actual magazine that's sold off the shelves for what I can tell. So I am wondering why there is no option to use it (or parts of it) in future designs? So I would then wonder what the point of allowing someone to download it would be in the first place? Unless I have some setting that is not set up correctly? As the tutorial as based on the magazine maybe I am supposed to do them all and I'll have one to export of my own!
  13. One thing I'd really like to see are some pre-made template layouts such as tri-fold brochures with the crop-marks and bleed included in all of the Affinity suite products. I feel this is a big part missing... A4Trifold_Inside.afdesign
