  1. I guess it's a "newbie" question for Affinity Designer.. but anyway.. :-) Is there any way I can set the stroke with (thickness) in mm instead of pt (points) or calculate mm to points?
  2. Thanks a lot guys! πŸ™‚ IΒ΄m a little busy these days, but I hope very soon IΒ΄ll be able to make some more videos.. I'm working on some projects, but I can't really show them yet due to the clients, but when it's done IΒ΄ll be able to post some videos of it.. I also have a watch engraving I'm designing and I'm trying to document it, just need some time to put it together πŸ™‚ Stay tuned and thanks again! πŸ™‚
  3. Today I had to do what I hoped not to do.. start the subscription of Adobe Illustrator again.. only because need the DXF import and export. I have tried some other options as Inkscape and others, but they really suck.. in my opinion. hope this DXF feature will be here soon!
  4. Thanks a lot! πŸ™‚ Well, the music is mine.. I had a record deal in USA many years ago, and this is one of my demos (probably 16 - 17 years ago I did it).. I used it so I wouldn't have any legal issues with youtube πŸ™‚ ItΒ΄s the first time I hear it sounds painful, but we are all different, and that's ok πŸ™‚
  5. Hehe πŸ™‚ IΒ΄m glad you enjoyed it.. I love doing it, but yes it takes a lot of time and work.. πŸ™‚
  6. Thanks a lot MEB! πŸ™‚ I found a way it works for me now.. (now IΒ΄m on the computer tho) I select all the lines in the layer, then expand them.. it looks all good. Then I chose some lines with the node tool and hit add (and check if they look ok after). Then I make the new curve invisible. Then I choose more expanded lines, and redo the process.. and of course check if it looks ok after each process. I did this with all the design, without adjusting any lines and it worked fine πŸ™‚ I can try to make a video as soon as I finish this project if you want? πŸ™‚ Thanks again for all help! πŸ™‚
  7. Thanks a lot Dan! πŸ™‚ Appreciate it! May I ask what unnecessary characters you removed? Can I simply post the youtube link (without adding it as a link)? πŸ™‚
  8. Hey, yes I'm sorry I just checked now.. the strange shapes doesn't appear when expanding, but using boolean operation add, after I expand the lines.. So does that means I have to choose fewer expanded lines before adding, and repeat the operation? πŸ™‚ Expanded lines And after I use Add
  9. I'm not sure if this work, but I'm trying to add a embed youtube video Edit: No it didn't work, so I added the link instead of a project I'm working on in AD πŸ™‚ Such a great tool.. I try to do most of the work on the iPad.. This is a scrollwork design meant for laser engraving for a client.. I'm a hand engraver, but some commission work is good these days πŸ™‚ By the way, is there a way to put the youtube video directly in the post? πŸ™‚
  10. Hey, and thanks a lot! The expanded lines added correctly when I selected the the ones I expanded. I could choose all the files at the same time, but when I then pressed expand, it made some "strange" expanded shapes... probably because there are so many lines close to each other. I don’t know if that is a bug.. the problem on the iPad is to chose x number of lines that are this close and expand, and then try to choose the exact same lines again before hitting add. i guess it’s better to do this operation on the Mac then (as soon as my wife is done with her home office) as it’s easier to choose the lines from the layer menu.. it works as an emergency, but.. Anyway thanks a million times for fast reply and to help me with this πŸ™‚ Stay safe and continue the good work!
  11. Thanks for fast reply, the file should be uploaded now.. πŸ™‚
  12. Sure no problem, but I’m not sure what stray point is πŸ™‚
  13. I have a problem with AD on my iPad Pro.. after expanding strokes I hit add, as I want them in one curve.. but doing this makes AD crash every time.. see video. it happens even when choosing a few lines and hit add. I have the second generation iPad Pro 12,9 with latest iPadOS and latest version of AD any solution to this? FullSizeRender.mov
  14. Hey, that worked pretty cool! πŸ™‚ Thanks a lot! IΒ΄ll try to send this off to the client and see how it can work.. I see I have to do some adjustments first, but that's alright πŸ™‚ I know what you mean by keeping the lines, but IΒ΄ll duplicate it all and save it in a group in case I need to do some adjustments after.. and in that case do the process again.. I'm a hand engraver, so I don't know much about laser, but learning.. πŸ™‚ Thanks a lot, hope you are all safe from the virus thing! Here in Spain it's a total closedown now, so I have some time to be creative.. at least it's something πŸ™‚
  15. Thanks Garry! πŸ™‚ ItΒ΄s because the laser engraver wants the outline to be engraved deeper, and the shadows a little less.. so he will engrave the piece two times. πŸ™‚
