  1. Hi, I have a PC with these specs: Core i9 CPU + 32 GB RAM + RX580 8 GB GPU + Dell 4K Display. Latest version of Affinity Designer. Every driver is up to date. I'm getting huge performance issues whenever I enable isometric grid layout. Just dragging around a single rectangle is super lagging. It's a fresh install of Affinity and just a blank Desktop artboard. I tried to record my screen but couldn't find anything that can record properly 60 fps. (open for suggestions how to record my screen. tried build in game bar but it's terrible.) Any suggestions? Thanks.
  2. I'm having trouble joining nodes. Summary: I have a closed shape I break the curves at two places Add som nodes, adjust the curves I then want to close the curves again to have a closed shape. Unable to close the nodes to create a closed shape Best regards, Olle 1. I have this shape 2. I then break the curve at these two nodes 3. I then do some work and want to close the shape again with "Join corves". But I'm unable to join them.
  3. This may be one hell of a beginner question but I can't find any information about this.. I hope I can explain my issue well enough. If I have 2 curves. like some funky squares that touch with an edge. and they need to be separate colors so i can't combine them. Can I use just 1 edge between them? I am now drawing all my touching edges double and they never match because once you zoom in far enough it's never perfect. It seems really redundant to draw those touching edges twice all the time. Maybe that's just how it should work, I don't know. I'm just beginning , going full n00b..
  4. Is there a way to set the fill mode to winding (non-zero) permanently? It seems to switch back to Alternate (even odd) with every new document and also sometimes multiple times in the same document as I work. Thanks!
  5. “Bernadette” is a semi-realistic drawing that I created with Affinity Designer. AD is a (truly) excellent tool for vector graphics, but it also offers the best conditions for creating drawings and digital painting in the pixel range. more about this work: https://www.bodobe.de/zeichnung-mit-affinity-designer/ Best regards, stay healthy 😌
  6. I need to put a slashed zero in this Affinity Designer project I'm doing. How do you access this character? I got several fonts to choose from like Clarika and Cormac, and others.
  7. Here are some metal styles (mostly silver and gold textures): The compressed styles file: metal-styles.afstyles.zip
  8. My first ever digital scrapbooking pages were done using Serif Pageplus, and then I moved into Serif's Scrapbooking Software which evolved inot Craft Artist. My children and I have been using Craft Artist for years. However it's crashing and freezing a lot, with the problems getting worse with successive Windows 10 updates. So I decided to try out the Affinity free Trail in April. This is my journey learning to scrapbook in Affinity so far: First go - using Affinity Photo. Scrapbooking with Affinity Photo is much more clunky than using Craft Artist, and took at least twice as long. The text tools are too basic for my needs. On a plus note, the psd template imported well. My page created in Affinity Photo using a psd scrapbooking template. https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/royal-memories.431453/ Second go - using Affinity Publisher Scrapbooking with Affinity Publisher is fairly straight forward and is done in a similar way as with Craft Artist. The text tool power is stronger than Craft Artist's, but it can't edit or create graphics. However, it can borrow functionality from Affinity Photo and Designer to accomplish that stuff, which is why I'm looking at the complete suite. This page is done in Publisher using the "Photo Persona" to edit the colours in some of the elements. https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/psalm-24.431470/ Using Designer to create a template I used Affinity Designer to create a template for this page with intersecting shapes. I had a go at text on a path too. https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/spring.431552/ Drawing & Painting I've been testing out the drawing and painting tools today, and drew and painted the balloon on this art journaling page https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/balloon.431571/ Using a ready made Photo Mask Today's task for Affinity is masking - seems to work fine. I'm still getting the hang of basic drop shadows. The parameters used in the dialog box are different to those used in Craft Artist. Not worked out how to do fancy shadows yet https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/free-food.431614/ How about a 2 pager? My first go at attempting a 2 pager with the Affinity Suite. It's not as easy to line everything up working on 2 separate pages as it is in Craft Artist. However, Affinity doesn't freeze, struggle with large file sizes or crash on me like Craft Artist does increasingly more with every Windows 10 update. So next time I'll try working on it as one large page instead of 2 side by side pages. https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/april-birthday-2-pager.432101/ Pre-flight Checks I do like the "pre-flight checks" function in Affinity Publisher. When I exported the page I was working on it told me I had spelt something wrong, and had text outside my text box, and suggested fixing it before exporting the document. Recolouring digital stamps/brushes I've learnt how to use the Colour Overlay effect to recolour stamps and brushes, and I've has some more vector drawing practice too. https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/find-peace.433188/ Creating a blending Mask With the Photo Persona I used the Oval Selection tool with a feather of 150px to create a mask for blending the photo in this page. Everything else was done in Publisher https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/blending.433328/ I'm getting quite comfortable now with using Affinity Publisher as my main scrapbooking software, using the Photo or Designer Personas as needed. I now have the option of using psd templates which did not work in Craft Artist. Using psd templates requires me to start with Affinity Photo instead of Publisher. But when I want to add any fancy text I can close the document and reopen it in publisher without any difficulties or need to export/import first. I think I'm going to talk with hubby about purchasing on the 50% off offer that is currently still running.
  9. Affinity Designer is crashing every time I attempt to sort my swatches by color. I am on a Mac, OSX 10.11.6 running the latest version of AD 1.5.5
  10. Hello, I recently purchased Affinity Designer, to use it for Social Media Posts, and the occasional bored scribble. And I realized if you use the Artboard, the background is an Automatic Light grey. Is there any way to change that? It is very distracting, and it sort of blends in with the actual Artboard. Greetings, Elya.
  11. I would see only advantages in a function, that would allow me to swap the position of 2 objects. They don't even need to be the same dimensions. They don't even need to be the same type (image, group, font...). For a flyer I am arranging lots of objects. In my case images, that all have the same size. And I have to arrange them in a grid layout. Now I really "waste" a massive amount of time by moving them into the correct positions. Checking how the images look, if I swap 2 images - e.g. one pic from 5th row/2nd column to 1st row/ 6th column and the other pcitures vice versa. It would genius, to just select two objects and hit a command key and they will be swapped. It would save soo much time instead of dragging and hoping that snapping works fine. And that Publisher orientates on the adjacents objects correctly. Be For me: the fastes way (because of using shortcuts) is: cmd+c object1 - I wanna move from A-to-B cmd+v and move the duplicate of object1 to B - it's correct position (above object2), then cmd+x the duplicate, to see object2 again select and move object2 to the position of the old object1 cmd+v to get get the duplicate of object1 and do the same cmd+x, delete,cmd+v stuff for getting rid of the old object1 and having object 2 only I miss this option since years, when I started working with Affinity Designer. Thanks in advance!!! Schubi
  12. The Isometric Grid in Affinity Designer is one of my favorite tools. It helps me a lot in making isometric illustration. Here's a speed art on how I use the tool in making an isometric camera illustration. If you find my channel helpful, please like, comment, and subscribe to help me maintain my channel. Thank you!
  13. This program feels like it was designed for drawing on a tablet. I know i have posted alot in 2 days but, I work fast. This program has changed my work flow in a short period of time. If any new artist have questions feel free to ask.
  14. Hello Serif Mavens, I am loving this software here is some imagery of things I am creating solely in Affinity Designer. Prints of my work can be seen here https://www.artstation.com/wildeyedartist/prints artist stick together in this ne paradigm. Be determined and steadfast, time will resolve it all.
  15. Used Affinity Photo, Designer and Publisher to make a poster for a digital racing event. I´ve used the Adobe software for 12+ years so this is my first project using the Affinity software, it took some time to get used to it but liked it alot! Alle cars where separate screenshots and I've worked them in one image. The main design can be used in several different sizes, like a social media posts or a wallpaper. I've used the same techniques as I used for this poster I made a year ago for the real life counterpart of this racing series. I hope you like the design

  17. I'm looking for some suggestions on what tools and workflows would suit what I'm trying to achieve and my interests. What I'm most interested in is tracing old works, sketching and colouring and am thinking that Designer may be the application that would best suit my interests. I'm keen to take a draft sketch to a final paint and then be able to play around with the layers. A big part of my motivation is that I've recently purchased a new iPad Pro with Pencil and I'd like to get the most out of it. I have purchased Photo iPad version thinking that it would be the most versatile tool but after reading about Designers Pencil tool I think it may be the tool I'm most interested in. Firstly because it creates editable paths and second because it may allow me to show off the Apple Pencil tool versatality to the kids 😁 But then I'm not sure if Designers painting and colouring tools are as diverse as Photo. It's been a few years since I was doing design work and it's going to take me some time to familiarise myself with the tools and am feeling a bit overwhelmed with choice. Thanks for any help and feedback.
  18. Hi all, When I export my file as PDF some of the elements become barely visible. I tried many export combinations without avail. The text has a Color Overlay, not sure if this is the culprit. This is how it looks in Designer: And this is how it looks in Acrobat: Cheers, Juan
  19. Good afternoon, all! I am sure this has been asked before so if anyone has a link that I cannot seem to locate, I would appreciate it. I am attempting to make simple designs in Designer for export as an SVG to then upload to Cricut Design Space. I have attached a file with a simple example. I am wondering what the steps would be to do a couple things: 1. Have overlapping parts of the layers be negative space in what is behind it. An example would be the text in the attached file. If I am cutting vinyl and want everything to be on the same plane, I need the words cut out of what is behind it so the words can fit inside of it. 2. When uploading the file into Cricut Design Space, instead of the outline of the circle I have created (3 of them), Design Space fills in the circles with the associated color. I want just the outline of the shape and not the fill. Any idea what I am doing wrong? I am using the file as an example of what I would try to do because I am assuming that whatever I do with any other sort of shape would lead to the same results. If I just want an outline of a given shape, why doesn't Cricut recognize it as it was drawn? Thanks for any help you can provide. even if it is a link or such pointing me to another resource.

  20. I love movies, and that's why I decided to draw one of my favorite characters. I've decided Walter White from the "Br Ba" TV serie. how to i created this vectorial image: speed art video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5B4LEgl4sSQ ----- Thanks!!!
