  1. @Dan C, thanks for the answers, a lot of things have been cleared up (I think this is a dunglish way of saying that I understand it better now :-)) and 'fixed' right now! @Paul Mudditt Thnx, fixed it :-)
  2. Hi Dan, Thanks for your reply. Reading about the pallettes I thought that application would mean that it would be available in all affinity applications (on mac and iPad) but as I understand you well this isn't the case? Below the document with 5 artboards (of which two are still empty). The strange thing is that when trying to save this document I cannot do this, the option 'save' and 'save as....' is light grey even when I made some changes. Quite strange.... Just one more thing I just found out: I also have adobe typekit and the fonts I use there are automatically also available in affinity designer on my macbook, but not in the affinity app on my iPad (the nummer of fonts there are far less regardless the adobe typekit fonts). poster babykamer 3.afdesign
  3. Thank you, I already expected that but thought you never know ;-)...
  4. I recently bought affinity designer for my iPad and made some (application) swatches on my macbook in affinity designer, but when opening affinity designer on my iPad the swatches aren't visible. Also tried it with system swatches but that didn't make a difference. Next to that I have some trouble opening a affinity file consisting of different artboards on my iPad that I made on my macbook. I only get to see the first artboard and when creating a new artboard in order to see the whole field, none of the artboards I previous made show up... Hope you can help me out on this, for I'm already considering a refund request...
  5. Hi, For my instagram post I want to create this kind of text blocks (currently using adobe spark to do so but would prefer affinity designer for it has far more options to add to it). But don't wanna spend a lot of time on creating them. So my question: is there a function in affinity designer which will automatically transform text blocks this way (full outline through variation in the size of the words instead of space between the letters)? Thnx!
  6. I also have a problem with regard to text boxes in affinity designer. I am working on an artboard and every time I want to insert a textbox on a particular page, the textbox appears somewhere random in the grey area far away from any of the pages. I have no idea why that's happening and how to make it work the way it should...
  7. @Dan C thnx and I suppose you keep me posted on the developments through this topic on the forum?
  8. I also export it as a psd file to a friend of mine who is a graphic designer, however when she tried to open it it was completely malfunctioning (she called it one big malfunction).... So it seems that with regard to the export function there is something wrong. This is how I exported it and this is the file original file.psd
  9. @JimmyJack & @MikeWI changes all the midpoints to 50%, but it still rasterizes when exporting to pdf as you already mentioned JimmyJack, so what would you advice me to do? Seems quite random to tweak with the gradients till it isn't rasterizing any more....
  10. @JimmyJack I don't really understand what you're saying, I'm not a pro at all so I'm a little bit puzzled at the moment... @MikeW , I just installed adobe reader and will give it a try (when I'm back home), let you know whether it worked out well!
  11. When I view it in 'preview' on my mac it looks fine. The printer I used is a brother one, but I also tried to print it in a printshop but there they had the same problem, couldn't even open the file for their more professional printers
  12. Hi Dan, Of cours, I only alternated the original text in 'text' for that was too personal but this is the original file, and the pdf made out of it. original file.afdesign original file.pdf
  13. I created a print-press ready document (300 dpi, see below) on my mac with only vectors & text. When printing the quality turned out to be very low, you could see the pixels in the lines and letters. Also the gradient colors weren't fluid. I tried printing it directly and exporting it to pdf (see below). But the quality remained very bad. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Anyone who recognizes this problem and can help me out?
