Really cool FLOKK. To create a mask just drag a shape over the thumbnail of another shape/layer/group or of a bitmap layer. You will see a blue vertical mark near the thumbnail (on the right), when you drag your shape over it.
Cheers, I will go test that out :)
Update to my trial artwork...
Couple of things I missed having, no warp tools and masking options (unless Ive missed these?).
The software could also do with a few extra keyboard short cuts adding here and there, such as cmd + e for export.
Overall through, I have very much enjoyed using the software and will be purchasing next week on release.
In an attempt to break me in, I decided to jump right in and make a large A3 piece.
Going well so far, although missing not having an eye drop tool to sample things, hopefully the idea is once I have completed this I should have sussed affinity to a comfortable level.
Things I love so far:
• Effects are presented in one easy place with sliders
• The path tools, once I figured out how to add points etc I'm finding them beautiful to use.
• I don't have so many pallets open to achieve the same work as I do in Illustrator
I have come across a couple of bugs, my tool bar got stuck to the foot of the window and then vanished, My artboard started flashing on and off at one point after drawing a box and I had to re-start
Excellent thanks :)
Ah yes, I have this working on paths I have made using the pen tool, but I cant seam to get it working on circles made with the shape tool?
Im struggling to add points to paths I have made, In Illustrator you have the + & - tools to accomplish this.
Is there a simple way in Affinity I'm sure there is a very simple solution to this,
Thanks, works well :) ... I'm now struggling to add points to paths so I can cut away bits I don't need
One more thing....sorry is there a Scissor tool equivalent?
Just started vectoring my first big piece of artwork with Affinity and hit upon a snag... I cant find the eye drop tool?
Within my work process I create a shape, add outline colour, point thickness, apply internal colours and style - then when creating a new shape that requires the same treatment click cmd + i, bringing up the eye drop tool which clones styles onto the new object.
Is this possible in Affinity? its a bit of a pain to manually do each shape and item.
Search and replace colours / global colours
in Pre-V2 Archive of Affinity on Desktop Questions (macOS and Windows)
I'm just finishing my first piece of artwork produced with Affinity, and really enjoyed the process so far.
However I would like to experiment with some different colours schemes, Is there a way to select and edit colours rather than replacing individually? or can I set up colour pallets with global settings?
