  1. yup Awesome thanks for the quick replies- i found the clean full layer below - but i never knew you could embed clipping masks into JPG
  2. hi all i have received a jpg from a publisher and when i open the file in Designer or Photo it shows transparency masks...but i can't seem to see the complete image - the weirdest thing I have ever come across... Screengrab to show you the opened file in Photo
  3. Yup Affinity this tool is paramount and should be a stable within the toolset - the ability to grab the handles of any object or text and free transform it.... NEEDS TO BE IN HERE GUYS - WHEN WILL IT COME IN - the last we can see in 2017 is that its in the cards - its Time to add it.

    On1 Plugin

    yes please on a plugin for On1 into Affinity Photo
  5. 2014 is a long time ago and thank you but its a clunky workaround and sort of close but needs to be able to spline control the ribbon and its nodes for smooth mix blends - especially for organic shapes

  7. totally agree i just was sent a tutorial on it explaining it and thought....finally
  8. I would so love to see a freeform gradient tool in Designer - you are almost there where you can select the way points in the linear tool but to then be able to have them as a controllable spline would be awesome. Is this something you will include into future updates?
  9. how can you find out whats not supported as vector output when using pdf to export - im having files come back from printers saying that the pdfs im sending them are rasterising things like text any ideas why - is it something to do with the export settings of Rasterise is set to unsupported properties? Is there a document or tutorial explaining pdf export in Designer?

    Printers Marks

    I would love to see added to the marks is fold lines and even the possibility for die cuts and preferations added to the printers marks on pdf export - BTW it looks great and love how familiar it feels - looking forward to your final squishy brick company killer - A motion graphics / video editor
  11. thanks mike that was my thinking too
  12. Hi All, i have an A4 document that i want to fold specifically the doc has 4mm bleed - how do i get Printer fold marks to show up on the Print Ready Pdf? i can get the registration crop etc but no idea how to incorporate the fold marks
  13. yes thats how it used to work for me with the bottom artboard in the layers was the first page (only been using Affinity for a short while) but for some strange reason it would not render out all the pages in the pdf export with all pages selected it would just duplicate the front page for every page - really weird and thanks for the compliment MikeW the client loved it too - im in the process of transferring my studio across from Adobe and love working in Affinity - just need to sort out these weird little unexpected things - i dont know if its the Big A making updates to theirs that's deliberately causing havoc for Affinity or my quirky way of doing things on the fly.
  14. Here is a screen grab of my layers as the AFD file is over 22mb
  15. I did use the File export function and not the persona one, and i set up the pdf for print output in the options output. I did create a unique artboard without importing elements into it for the cover page and only used the elements needed for it unlike what i did for the catalogue pages. When i built the artboard i did have all the content in and then i duplicated each one then deleted the unwanted items from each artboard. im guessing this is where it went wrong and somehow nested the contents - it was a very unexpected outcome and a possible issue within Affinity designer to keep an eye out for. Ohh and using the latest build of Designer too btw.
