  1. I have created some very simple vector objects. Some are on Artboards and some are not. Recently, when I select the object to export, the output saved (as PNG or JPG doesn't matter) often includes a random are of blank white space behind it, that was never selected. I have used Designer for several years and never had this problem until recently. Ultimately I have to crop what should be a clean image, down to the correct dimensions. The problem starts in the selecting process. Does not matter if I'm in Designer or Pixel Personas mode. EX: If my selected object of choice is square, I will see the size box improperly showing as some rectangular dimension. Not even close to square. When saved, the resulting file show a huge rectangular area of empty space with the desired object in the lower right corner. I understand not to select the entire workspace or artboard - I am only selecting the desired object. This also happens with or without the background included. It's clearly not right but I can find no help to fix it. Please advise ASAP. I am wasting a lot of time doing added work that I never had to before.
  2. I downloaded the new beta tonight for Designer and each time I tried to register or sign in, it would either stay on the loading screen forever, or tell me it could not connect. Not sure what to do about that

  4. It's been a minute since I last posted here, so I figured I'd show off what I've been working on these last few. I don't have a complete project as of yet. What I'm doing is building up assets for a comic project I'm working on, trying to do at least one model a day over the next year or so until I have enough objects to mix and match together to build up my various scenes. I have about 23 models so far. I've thrown them together into a single scene to see if they work together coherently, and, so far, I've been pleased with the results. Since I'm using Designer heavily for labels and other designs, alongside a bit of Photo for touch up work, I figured I'd show off what I've done here. These are some of the labels I've done over the last couple of days. It's the first time I've used artboards, which makes me feel extra fancy. I actually did a lot of these vegetable objects awhile ago, based on a tutorial I did back when I was first learning Designer. I decided to repurpose them here, and add a few more to flesh things out. And here they are in scene, alongside a bunch of other objects I've made. I'm only a few steps along on a greater journey, but I think I'm off to a good start thus far. edit: Gotta include my most recent can.
  5. Hello! This is my work for Vectober 2020 challenge. This is the first time I am participating in the Vectober Challenge. However, I have been using Affinity programs for a very long time. I think Affinity Designer is the best thing I used for illustration. (I used to use Adobe and Corel products earlier). Throughout the Vectober 2020 Challenge, I will be happy to share all the original files of all the illustrations that I will do. I think it will be useful for all beginner illustrators to learn my source files to understand how the magic of artwork is done in Affinity Designer. Just follow the link to my website: http://nodeus.ru or instagram: https://instagram.com/nodeus Also i`m share all source files for my patrons on Patreon and Gumroad. I will update the topic as the work progresses.
  6. I have been searching for a while now, but cant find any "select same colour" feature. All I can find is a feature request post from 4 years ago asking for this. Surely this rudimental feature has been implimented by now. Selecting and replacing a colour is one of the main benefits of vector work, to not have this seems crazy to me. I know the dev team is small and your product is so superior to Adobe is so many ways, but missing fundamental features like this makes it unusable for real world projects. I hope I am being a dullard and a select same colour feature is available. If not please add it to the top of the list of features in the next update.
  7. Affinity Forums Hello friends, greetings from Honduras, now will share a link to download vectors and more. link: http://es.all-free-download.com The site is ideal for use with Affinity Designer. greetings To You
  8. Poison So impressed with AD....had to resort to embedded files with this one but handled 1000's of vector objects brilliantly.. Again based on a sketch from 2017 Inktober Project All vector 420 x 200 mm 300dpi
  9. I am intrigued by iskn's Repaper graphics tablet. I saw it 3 or 4 years ago loved the idea but I don't know anyone who uses one and I haven't bought one either but I often think about it. I was wondering if anyone here uses it and then uses Affinity Designer or Photo to manipulate the drawings? I believe that Repaper can capture your strokes in vectors while you draw on real paper using real pencils or pens and you can export them with SVG, which you could then manipulate using Designer or Photo. I'd be curious to know what people who have used one think of it? I know a lot of people use Wacom or other devices but I'm a more traditionalist and prefer real paper and pencil or pen and I was wondering how the Repaper compared with other devices like the ones from Wacom. I often sketch things out on paper and then scan it or take a photo and then rework it in Designer based on my sketch but it would be great to remove a step but I wasn't how well it worked.
  10. one of my project fist time using Affinity😍
  11. Here's my first effort using Affinity Designer. I used Corel Draw in the dim and distant past and started to use Paintshop Pro for the last six or seven years. After upgrading from PC to iMac decided to go to vector drawing rather than raster, as the clarity and sharpness was my main requirement. Must say I love the software, and am fairly happy with the result so far. Still making basic mistakes and will hopefully learn more with the tutorials and any comments from more experienced members that I can glean here. So here it is, nearly didn't post this after looking at some of the stunning work that people have posted here, but hey! Got to start somewhere! I still have some shading and rendering to do on it but am happy with the result so far. The F-16 is the vector and I've included an A-10, my last raster drawing which shows the difference in clarity that I'm after.
  12. Any critique welcome, I´m not a pro.
  13. See progress sequence and additional info in my portfolio blog: https://communicats.blogspot.com/2020/11/clint-eastwood-in-vector-t-shirt-design.html Not too much detail such as pores, wrinkles and hair texture was included, because the image was used for a T-shirt design. I might add it later when I make a separate portrait of this.
  14. how do I go about increasing the size of the tools on my screem? They are tyo small to read.
  15. This has been happening for a little while: if i create a new document of any specs, I see the outline of the documents border as a grey box, but there appears to be a static portion of the document that is either white, or the transparency checkerboard if I've checked transparent background. The rest of the document background remains black. Zooming in or out or scrolling around will not change where this visible area appears on my screen; it's always located in the upper left corner of the window. It feels like it might be a screen redraw bug, but I'm not sure. I just tried a document I created in June and I can't seem to replicate it. I'm using 1.8.4 on a new iMac running OS 10.15.6. Thanks.
  16. Here's a couple more that I've just about finished. Still learning the lessons; don't know if I'll ever finish learning!!! Lancaster of 207 Squadron and Hurricane of 85 Squadron.
  17. 20th of Februar 1962 John Glenn became the first American to orbit the earth in Friendship 7, for a total of three orbits... Two years after I was launched, now I feel old. 2D vector art in Affinity Designer with a heavy duty perlin noise background in Affinity Photo.
  18. I can't seem to be able to split text in Affinity Designer? From what I can gather it's only shapes that can be divided? Is there a way this can be achieved? I've attached an example that I had to call my boyfriend and ask him to do this on Adobe Illustrator for me as I couldn't achieve this design like I was hoping to on Affinity. Is there any sign that this could be a feature in the near future?
