  1. Thanks a lot for the effort! , that makes sense. The graphs were automatically created by a library I use for some analysis software, and I did not actually ungroup the adjacent dots from the graph, so I did not notice the opacity difference (if the grouped object is selected it hows 100% opacity). Alright, now I know what to look out for if I run into a similar problem again.
  2. Hi MEB, thanks for the quick reply. I am clicking on the graph on the right, having the fill selected on the righthand colourpane press i has the hotkey for the "Color Picker Tool" and then click on the fill of the graph on the left. Interestingly, I now tested it and it does work if I select the stroke instead, or if I select the fill of a graph where the fill is selected as completely black. I now have the feeling that there is some automatic adjustmend between stroke and fill is going on. Untitled.afdesign
  3. I am using affinity designer on Mac and the colour picker does not do what it should. See graph below. For the fill of the marked graph on the right I clicked on the fill of the graph on the left. The result is obviously not what I want. What is going on here, and how can I fix it?
  4. Ah, sorry. I am using the MacOs version of Affinity Designer, current version 1.8.3. Edit: I figured it out with the help of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=876&v=5mB2ta6zEOo&feature=emb_logo I have to export my object as a png and then can create a new textured image brush with the png as a template. Simply have to use the "repeat" option for the body and need to adjust what part should be repeated and it works perfectly.
  5. Thanks for your answer, but I could not really figure out how to use either of those tools for what I want. Let's say I have an object like this. And I want to make a longer structure from it. Like this: How would I do that without painstakingly copy the elements and put them back together? I just want to kind of draw the with the object, if possible.
  6. Probably this is not possible, but if not this would be a nice feature request: Anyways I made a small simple object and want to use it as the outline of a bigger object. The way I would do that usually is by copying and rotating it till it outlines the shape I want to. However, this gets very tricky with more complex shapes, and making corners of different angles is very time consuming. So I was wondering, can I use an object to draw with? i.e. replace the black line that is usually used with the pencil tool with my object, so that it automatically gets rotated around corners etc.? Maybe an alternative way to describe this would be contiously by copypasting a selected object while dragging your mouse.
  7. Thank you, it works. My two key problems were: I selected the artistic, instead of the frame text tool AND my text was already grouped. This does not work if one selects just the groups, they have to be individual text boxes.
  8. So the current problem that I am having is, that I have an .svg file of a plot I created, and the way my plot got exported is with absolutely unreadable big text. The thing I want to do therefore is to resize the text in place. This is not possible by selecting multiple textboxes and rescale them, because this also changes there position on the graphic, and the spacing between them. Is there any way to select multiple textboxes and just change the text properties, like font size all at once? I am having something like 30 textboxes in a graph. Selecting each text manually to change it's properties is not a feasible option
  9. Why does the "Typographie" window only allow me to superscript certain characters? It works only on numbers 1-3 and very few other characters. If I select a 4, or an a, or most other characters the option just is not there. How do I superscript those other numbers?
  10. Hey, I am sorry if this question is already asked, but I could not find a solution to my problem. I just started the trial version of Affinity Designer, and I have the following problem: Consider two circles that are partially overlapping: Is there any way to remove the region that is overlapping from one object? Sure I could realize almost the same when I just place the second circle on the top layer and give it the background colour, but this is very annoying when creating larger objects. I think this is basically an inversion of the mask function, where only the overlaying part is kept and everything else is hidden. Cheers, Snizl
