  1. Cool, I created this amazing them based upon Red Beads & a Paper Parchment: I made the brushstroke from scratch, then applied it on the outer shape. Then I used matching colors for the text and the box behind the framed text. Red Bead Themed Document.afdesign
  2. After upgrading my Macbook and transferring all my files to the new computer via a Time Machine backup. Both Affinity Designer and Photo both come up with a “not responding” message. The splash screen appears then both programs just hang. No other programs including Adobe Photoshop or illustrator are behaving the same. They all open as expected. I have tried a few ideas suggested online like clearing the mac cache and finding preference files but nothing has worked. I am using a new 16” Macbook Pro running Catalina if this helps. Thanks in advance.
  3. In this video I'm going to show you how a similar method to create curved text but using Affinity Photo and Designer. Enjoy it!!

  5. can someone please update this thread? it's so frustrating when other users are having the same issue and trying to find a resolution but there's no updated post to show how to correct. I'm having the same problem. I had a client ask me to recreate his logo, but add my own ideas. I retraced his logo with the pen tool in vector persona. I exported eps and sent to supplier for printing on t-shirts. however, she said my work is rasterized. When she opens the file, it looks like bitmap! When I send it to myself, I see the same issue! However, when I send the original AD file, it's perfect and all layers are there and editable. This is driving me absolutely insane! Please advise. Spare me from wasting money on AI.

  7. Hi guys, Is there any way to automatically create a vector shape based on a selection I have made inside Affinity designer? Thanks, Mario

  9. Hi, I have looked through many forums although can't find the answer to my issue! I need to export my Affinity Designer files so my suppliers can access all layers of artwork. They ask for PSD although when i export as PSD they say the file is exported as a "flat" image with no layers. When i open the PSD file on my computer, layers show perfectly? Is this a glitch? Or am I exporting it wrong? When i Export as PDF, and leave "Don't export layers hidden by Export persona" unchecked - does the PDF export as layers? So if my supplier opens in photoshop or other program they can access them? I need a way to just supply my artwork to my supplier in layers. Please help! Thanks! Beck

  11. Cool, remember the good-al days when WordPerfect for DOS was around? I created the GUI in Affinity Designer. WordPerfect (DOS).afdesign
  12. 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
  13. Hello! In the past days I encountered an error that I had never noticed before: After working for hours with several documents consisting of about 10-15 artboards with individual column guides, the option to show/hide the column guides from the view menu disappeared several times. I had to restart Affinity Designer in order to get them back working. I have no precise recipe to reproduce this error. But perhaps somebody else has encountered it, too. One thing I do remember is, that I dragged an element on the canavas (outside an artboard), saw the colomn guides populating the whole canvas for a brief moment before they disappeared again. Afterwords I wasn't able to switch them on and off anymore. Cheers, Volker
  14. Hello designers, long time no talk, just wanted to share with you my latest tutorial of a badge illustration. Hope you like it, enjoy:
  15. I have Affinity Photo (1.7.3) and have recently bought Affinity Designer (1.7.3). Both running on iMac (OS 10.13.6 - latest compatible for older iMac). The layers panel is not working properly in Affinity Designer (works fine in Affinity Photo). No matter what I've tried I cannot manipulate or drag the objects or layers in the Designer Layers Panel. I've tried creating new files, new layers, new objects, restarting Designer, etc. I've tried locking and unlocking layers, unlocking all layers from the Layers menu and from within the Layers Panel. I've viewed the online instructions, tutorials, videos, etc. There is no mention of this problem and no apparent solution. Anybody else experienced this or found a solution? Thanks so much.

    Stenograph Paper

    Cool: I created a template that resembles as a stenograph paper. Stenograph Paper.afdesign
  17. I really hope that I've missed this option somewhere. When you show / hide guides it does just that - brilliant! Shapes you can toggle the edges in Designer (but not Publisher) with view Outline mode, while not exactly what I'm after it does help locate white boxes on a white background. However I can't find a way to showing / hide edges of text boxes. It would be really helpful, especially in creating templates etc. Many thanks
  18. Hi, in this video I'm going to show you how to create a Celtic Knot using Affinity Designer. Thanks, enjoy it!!! https://youtu.be/x9KlqHYuwAY
  19. Hey! I do transit maps and diagrams for in my spare time. Made them a while ago but now I think it's about right to show it to you :-) This one is a transit diagram inspired by from the era transit diagrams used be around in Wien (Vienna). This schematic shows the Stadtbahn lines G, DG, GD, W in 1975. Before the U-Bahn sections opened. This one is a transit diagram inspired by from the era transit diagrams used be around in Vienna. This schematic shows the remaining Stadtbahn lines G, GD, W and the then new two U-bahn lines U1, U4 in 1978. Any feedback is appreciated!
  20. I have attached a Dropbox link to a PDF version of the Affinity Designer IPad apps built in Help file. You can open this file in a reader or iBook and view it while using Designer. I hope you find it as useful as I do. Please note that this PDF is not in any way supported by Affinity, nor are they responsible for any errors or omissions, so please do not refer any errors or omissions in the Document to Affinity. Every attempt has been made (by me) to ensure the content is an accurate representation of the built in Help file, however some errors 'may' have slipped through . I will endeavour to keep it up to date (at least for a little while) . When Publisher comes out I may redo the layout (Pages is a little limited in the area of indexing). My Dropbox account is basic and limits daily bandwidth, hopefully that won’t be a problem. Here's the link to the folder. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/wulycsq0un4uo6i/AACz5hvGbGrteZB4E9q_HPI5a?dl=0 UPDATE The folder now contains two files. Thanks to the efforts of Glenn, the original file size has been reduced to a mere 14MB, with little loss of resolution. EDIT. Attached a low resolution (6mb) version to post. Fully functional. Enjoy. Enjoy Dave Affinity Designer Help File 1.6.1.39 (low res 6mb).pdf
  21. Red Eyed Tree Frogs are native to Mexico, Central America and go all the way down to Colombia (perhaps on holiday). Its scientific name is A. callidryas, which comes from Greek words kalos (beautiful) and dryas (a tree or wood nymph). I was chatting with someone about drawing and she liked to do Victorian style flora and fauna illustrations (I think there’s a proper name for it but I forget). I said that I usually try for realistic when I mess around for fun and she wanted to see something. One her favourite things are frogs, she has lots of ornaments etc in her house. So I did this, I think it might be the first living thing that I’ve done properly although I'll probably do a bit more to it sometime. Just the pen tool, no textures.
  22. There doesn't seem to be a way to merge an adjustment layer with the vector objects it is applied to. I already made a post asking about how to accomplish this here: But there doesn't seem to be a practical way to do it. This is frustrating because the HSL layer, for example, is an amazing way to recolor your artwork that is rendered almost useless when you can't merge it with the vector objects it is applied to. Adobe Illustrator has had a recolor feature for years and the only reason I'm not making the switch to AD is this. Merging adjustment layers would fix this issue completely and would be an amazing (and logical) addition to AD.
  23. Hi there! tutorial from my live streaming! I really recommend for beginners, No draw needed! Thanks for watching!
  24. I have a layer containing several vector objects. On top of that is an adjustment layer. I need to merge the adjustment layer with the vector objects but the "merge" button in the adjustment layer settings doesn't do anyhing. I also tried adding the adjustment as a child of the object layer or to a single object, but it still doesn't work. I have attached a simple file as an example. How do I merge the layer?

  25. I'm having a problem when grouping objects in Affinity Desiger mac desktop v1.7.2. When grouping objects, the objects move within the group. See attached example.
