  1. Thanks! YES!! Time Machine is the fix we all need! I have it too! Hopefully, everyone else has it as well.
  2. Hello, while I sing the praises about how superior AD is to Ai often and champion Serif and Affinity, I am very disappointed by the update, which it seems is loaded with problems, particularly snapping, the loss of snapping icons, and the loss of speed. I don't see what has been gained, but what has been lost is unquestionable. So, while you all work the bugs out, please tell me there is a way of simply reverting back to the prior and seemingly superior version that worked so near perfectly, has the snapping readily available on top, and is not slowed down? And if you don't currently have that ability, maybe you should, as it seems many people would prefer it. I hate to be critical, particularly when what you all do is so amazing, but it seems the release of 1.7 jumped the gun and now users would benefit from reverting. Thanks, Michael
  3. Thanks!! Good to know. I appreciate your help.
  4. Thank you. It seems I have to gain a better understanding of clipping and layers. I will review in the book. However, in the SS below, I was able to replicate the effect I am after, though in the layers panel the formula for the original red ball is one way, and the way I replicated it in the pink ball is different. This I do not understand. I welcome your thoughts. Thanks.
  5. WOW!! You did it. Can you please send me the instructions?
  6. Thank you. I too tried that before but then the reflection created by the white ellipse does not go to the very top of the red ball because of the gaugasian blur levels indicated in the book. Here are some screenshots. On pg 111 in the book, the white part goes to the top edge of the ball. I am following the instructions exactly as they are in the book, yet it is not giving me the same result as shown. Here are some screenshots of the issue. Obviously I've not shaded the ball, am only working on the shine so far. Thanks for your help! ellipse-nesting.afdesign
  7. Thanks but that addresses the Inner Glow, which I'm not having an issue with. I would LOVE to know how to avoid the issue I described with the glow layers interfering with the balls in the rows behind the front one. Can you help me please?
  8. I am following the instructions on the workbook on pg 110. I am able to create the glow and shadow but I do not understand how to eliminate the extra part of the white glow that is not used to make the shine atop the ball. As a result when I try to replicate this illustration, all of the excess white "balls" interfere with the rows of pool balls. I have tried all of the boolean tools but none have privided a solution. I have also tried doing this by moving the white glow in the layers panel, but I cannot replicate mine to the way the screenshot here from yours shows. My white ellipse won't move. Can someone please give me instructions? Also, Affinity Design staff, you know what would be amazingly helpful? Step by step videos or even written instructions to recreate the projects. While the book is great, it does not contain step by step instructions which would be very helpful. Thanks!! Mike
  9. I need help with a simple procedure please. I am following the instructions on the workbook on pg 110. I am able to create the glow and shadow but I do not understand how to eliminate the extra part of the white glow. I have tried all of the boolean tools but when I use the divide one, it deletes the red shape under the white glow. I have also tried doing this by moving the white glow in the layers panel, but I cannot replicate mine to the way in the screenshot here from yours. My white ellipse won't move. Can someone please give me instructions? Also, Affinity Design staff, you know what would be amazingly helpful? Step by step videos or even written instructions to recreate the projects. While the book is great, it omits steps. Thanks!! Mike
  10. I'm new to AD, and so far I'm loving it. What it enables me to do is bring my visions to life in a way AI cannot. I think that's well worth it alone.
