  1. Hey all, I run an annual collaborative writing event, and used Designer to produce all of the brand materials associated with the event. The designs themselves are all pretty simple / minimal (as you'll see below), but I was impressed with what an intuitive and easy to use environment Designer was to play around with some ideas and refine them from within the program. Materials produced include the logo (below) which was then reused for things like the forum badge shown in my signature. I also produced a design for use on t-shirts and mugs... Like I said, all pretty
  2. Greetings all! I wanted to show off my artistic endeavors with Affinity Designer. A lil' backstory, I used to do the small-press comic scene 10+ years ago and used a program called Creature House's Expression 3. In 2003, Microsoft bought Expression and continued the program... haphazardly... but only for Windows. As a Mac user, I lost my favorite digital inking program as OS updates rendered the old version of Expression useless. Flash forward to 2015, Affinity Designer appears and gives me another chance at creating natural looking, vector-based art. Check out my weekly comic strip, W
  3. For precision work, I prefer to keep most layers locked after I am finished editing them so I don't accidentally nudge them, or I don't want them to be selectable all the time. I think it would really help workflows to be able to hover over a layer that's locked at have a lock icon show up, perhaps in the upper lefthand corner of that layer, and you could click it to unlock that layer. Normally, I have to navigate through all of the layers to find the one I want to unlock in the layers palette (since I can't select it), which can be a time sink in complex documents. It would be a dream for
  4. Hello, When I export a .pdf of my design (in Affinity Designer) there is white space visible in-between shapes. I'm not sure if this matters but all of these shapes are filled with grain texture. I've included a screenshot of the issue- notice the white lines on the man's shirt, the edges of the pie chart, and the one edge of the table. Is there a setting that I've missed that would fix this or is this a software bug? survey-crop.afdesign
  5. I mentioned this in another topic but posting it here as it seems to be a bug... Make a shape with a fill and stroke colour. select it (use the blue cloud with the up arrow icon) to synchronise defaults from selection. select the rect shape tool, draw a rect it's all fine - I get stroke and colour. now try the pen tool. I only get the stroke. Seems like it's been broken for a while, my MAS version has this issue as does the latest beta. Cheers.
  6. Hello, this is my original AD file from my illustration of the Fiat-500-Vintage-57. Are you ready to pimp the car? He needs a new paint job and maybe a spoiler (automotive), because he wants to be a small sports car :). Help the little car and discover the world of vector graphics (with Affinity Designer) ...

  7. Hi there! I just wanted to share my illustration "series". It's basically composed by a few movie (faceless) characters, which are pretty recognizable. There are more to come, I hope you like it!
  8. Not a question at all, but I can't post in the «News» forum so I'm posting this here. A friend told me about a John Siracusa podcast where he talks about Affinity Designer (among other apps). Siracusa, for those of you who don't know the guy, is a programmer but he dabbles into pretty much anything so he will talk about AD as a programmer/developer/UI guy. Here's the link (it starts around the 81:00 minute mark with a prologue/intro into the subject): http://atp.fm/episodes/132 Short but pretty interesting. I suppose that there will be a surge in demo downloads and users becaus
  9. Was asked by some theatre kids at my college to make a poster for an upcoming show... Where else should I turn but to Affinity Designer!
  10. My first attempt within AD. I used only the brush tool along with the different colours. I didn't have a drawing tablet to hand, hence the shaky lines. Let me know what you think? Thanks to Lee and Gareth for helping - I'm definitely a newb :)
  11. My vector graphic “Luna 2" edited by AP :) http://b-bertuleit.de/luna-2/
  12. In AD's Pixel Persona the same keystroke is applied to 2 different tools: Pixel Tool & Paint Brush Tool. Why is that? Shouldn't each have its own letter rather than having to toggle back and forth?
  13. I am guessing that this is something else that hasn't yet been implemented; but I'm wondering: is there a way to change the colour or opacity of the grid? It's not easy to distinguish where the lines are on a light background, and I've only so far had luck with easily distinguishing the grid lines on a dark background. It would be REALLy helpful to be able to change the colour and opacity of grid lines in this app! -_-
  14. I am wondering if Guides can be locked and unlocked in Affinity Designer (as can be done with Illustrator). So far, I have not found any way to do this. ... help?
  15. I am working on pattern design and want to know if there is an offset filter in Affinity Designer. I know you can offset in Photo but I need to be working with vector images, not raster images. If theres no offset filter, is there another way to offset images? If not, is this something that could possibly be in a future update for Designer? The program is great and would love for it to replace Illustrator!
  16. Hi folks, hello Serif-Team, I need to export my work as PDF/X (3), many advertising agencies, printing companies or clients ask for it. Will Affinity Designer support this important format/settings? If so, when? ;)
  17. This was originally designed by me in InDesign/Photoshop, ISSUU link here: https://issuu.com/jasonproductsltd/docs/crgnz0815_nz___australia___asia_201?e=0 I have produced just the front cover in the latest Affinity Designer Beta (1.3.5.1) — better file compression in the AD file & much improved PDF export settings, great work devs! :D Oops, I'll have to share the AD file later with a link! When full pre-press features come in, it will be great! In the mean time, I made the canvas size 20mm larger than the A4 trim size to accommodate my hand drawn trim marks with a 'bleed'
  18. Hey there, I ran in this problem a few times now. Every now and then, when I'm in a hurry or just want to quit the app, I use the shortcut ⌘+S for saving and right after that the ⌘+Q combination to quit the app and go on. But sometimes I'm stuck with this screen. The app doesn't quit and stays open like that with the progress-bar. Menus are fully accessible and responding, except for quitting. I can open files via ⌘+O, but the little »Save document as« progress-bar stays there. Closing the opened document via ⌘+W is no problem, but the progress-bar will stay vis
  19. When using the paintbrush, clicking on the canvas doesn't make a dot. I have to scribble the mouse/stylus around in order for a mark to appear. I'm guessing it has something to do with a smoothing effect (the same thing that causes a delay when writing with my stylus before the marks start appearing on the page), but I have no idea what settings to play with in order to adjust either of those (the delay & inability to draw a "dot") situations. Any ideas, forum participants? :huh:
  20. 15 minute Challenge. Can you do it? easy.. Remember to Keep it simple (KISS).. ​Source code:Infinity Logo Design.afdesign Enjoy....
  21. I'm curious as to how each of the items affects the applications' performance. There's no explanation in the help files. RAM Usage Limit: I notice this can be dragged up to ~64 GB (which is more than 5 times how much RAM my Mac has...); does lessening the amount keep the application running smoothly... or do I need to open it up to the maximum amt of RAM I have so that it doesn't get "bottled up"? Disk Usage Warning Limit: This one's a bit confusing--does the application warn you if there's less than the set amount when you try to save a document? Again, the max is set at 64GB, even though my
  22. Hey guys, I am working with this psd file from which I need to export some layers (rasters). I kind of manage to do it by selecting those images, copying them, pasting somewhere else, exporting... This is not a pro way to do it I guess ;) I there any more gentle way of exporting psd layers via Affinity Designer? All I need is to select an element, and save it to a separate .png or.jpg file. Any help would me much appreciated, Thanks in advance, Greg
  23. Hello I tried to draw a toothpaste that I have used. I hope you like it. Outline is... https://youtu.be/8oLCbe4nqyc
  24. Here's a small part of a larger panel I'm working on for a client. Took me a fair while but I'm really happy with the results, all thanks to the power of AD! George
  25. Affinity Designer rasterizes smart objects placed into PSD files from Ilustrator/other vector editor, so these objects are no longer vector ones.
