  1. 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
  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)

  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...

  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...

  9. 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...
  10. 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).
  11. 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!
  12. 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

    Youth Club Logo

    Did this in a hurry for a Youth Club, you may notice the "Y' in the text :-)
  14. This has had a serious amount of subs and followers over the last few weeks regarding JCristina ditching Illustrator for Affinity Designer. I don't want to start a crazy thread, but it's become compelling watching for me watching it progress and more importantly how he is adapting to using Designer. I think he's already moved the Affinity Photo and that will be coming up in the future... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=De5Xd0MqVxo
  15. Interesting, I watched this and I don't see anything different from drag and drop. That's why I thought it wasn't working properly. Maybe I missed something: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyB7IpJYJa0
  16. This program never ceases to amaze me... Add how many corners and boom!
  17. Hello I am using the regular rectangle tool (not the one with rounded corners). I have the corner tool set to off yet my corners are still showing as rounded. Does the stroke size matter? If not I have no idea why it is this way. I have closed and re-opened the document to make sure it's not a cache thing. But still no squared corners. Any help would be appreciated. TIA
  18. Thanks so much for the quick reply! I love this program because it has so many features. Problem is, I can't remember them all! Thanks again I have it done now with your help...

    Studio Icon Set

    Hello, recently watching the Affinity marketing video on the website I notice a set of icons on the left which I have shown in the red box in the attached image. Does anyone know where I can get these icons from please? TIA

    Studio Icon Set

    Thanks! Luckily I have an account too :-) Regards
  21. I agree with KitKat1947 here: We can have 1 million people create a trifold template or the folks at Affinity can do it for the 1 million and add it to an already extensive list that they have for page and document setups! I mean even MS Publisher has a trifold option. If you want to compete with your competitors or surpass them, then add this stuff... However I did find this on the web. Hopefully someone can tell me if it will work please? Credit to https://www.orbprint.co.uk/template/a4t.pdf for the template a4_TriFold.pdf

    Logo Design

    For a current project - made out of a lot of crescent shapes and a few ellipses. The dark colour grey came from the politico . eu website, the yellows/brown from a marketing design set we own. Langauges are English/Welsh (Cymraeg).
