  1. Sometimes I cannot select a node and use the corner tool on it. Normally when you select an anchor point it gets bigger, but when I experience this issue, then selected anchor point is tiny and not a square. I've included a screenshot.
  2. Hello everyone, From today i believe i have to start sharing few of our design works (actually i'm working alone but i do build a team from time to time depending on project size ) Most of our client/requesters are Church based and we really enjoy doing stuffs for them but what you will se here is more about Smarty Studio standing with other studio/teams together into what is to become Congolese Design Style. Well each country have it's own style of design but Congo doesn't have a proper thus most of Congolese designers simply clone/copy styles from everywhere. This is a beginning, please your inputs on each design palet/kit will be of great help and will help us improving better. Blessings !
  3. Dear serif. I am a logo designer. I bought affinity designer for logo designing. Every logo designer needs mockup But affinity designer doesn't have warp effect so you can't have mockups. The only way to use mockups is by buying affinity photo (50$). Dear serif. Be sure that i won't pay another $50 And if i didn't get the warp tool in the next update be sure that i will leave this program

  7. I have a very unusual PDF printing issue which I can't figure out. Steps: I create a document in Affinity Designer and exported to PDF for print. I open the PDF (which looks fine) and select print (the print review box looks fine) Once printed, there is a large "gap" on the top of the page and the bottom is cut off. Investigation: Print directly from Affinity designer - all is Ok Print standard Microsoft printer test page - all is OK Create PDF from Word - all prints OK Printer settings tired with PDF created from Affinity - print 100%, print original size, fit to sheet It still prints top gap and cuts off the bottom Create new document in Affinity (just a rectangle) and export to PDF - same issue as above I'm at a loss here - any ideas?
  8. I’ve used the bitmap fill feature for a long time in previous releases but when I downloaded the release it glitched on me. I think they’re something I’m missing. The left image is what I am seeing in AD before exporting to PDF. The right image is what I’m getting when saving to PDF which clearly shows only the one original bitmap fill is in the rectangle and tiling didn't transfer. I’ll also attach a screenshot of AD so you can see some settings. Affinity Designer bitmap tiling not saving to PDF.pdf

  10. Hey! I do transit diagrams and maps for fun in my free time! Here is my unofficial transit diagram of the tramway in Liberec and between Liberec and Jablonec, Czech Republic. Showing all four lines in operation as of Oct. 2019. Colors for each line are introduced. Also included are the railway lines. Have fun! And feedback is always welcome. Chris
  11. Hey you all! I do transit maps and transit diagrams for fun in my spare time. In the last two days I was creating my version of the Kharkiv metro after a "request" by @AmateurAffiniter :-) In the maps (white and black) the present network, the two station on the green line under construction and also the further planned network are shown. As usual if you find any mistakes, errors please tell me :-) Have a great day, Chris
  12. In this video, I'm demonstrating how to create a long shadow effect to any text in Affinity Designer. I hope you enjoy it!
  13. I'm working in a document with size A0 (1189mm x 841mm). When i try to set the spread origin in the guides manager to a coordinate greater than 400mm it instantly resets it to 400mm. Happens on both Win7 and Win10. AD Version
  14. When I right-click on a .JPG image file, Affinity apps are no longer showing up as options in the "Open With" context menu under Mac OS Catalina (attachment 1). Even when I select "Open With>Other", select Affinity Photo, and check the "Always Open With" box (attachment 2), I get a dialog warning me that "macOS cannot verify the developer"... (attachment 3) HOWEVER, when right-clicking on .PNG, .GIF files, the Affinity apps appear in the context menu as they always have! Note: I *have* opened System Preferences>Security & Privacy>Photos to allow Affinity Photo to have access to my photos, but Affinity Publisher is the only app that appears in the list (attachment 4). I *am* able to open Affinity Photo, drag-and-drop the .JPG image into the editing window, work on it, and save it back out; I just can't open the image with a right-click. Would really like to have this functionality back. Is this an Affinity issue, or an Apple issue? Thanks!
  15. This is my third portrait of a female, the unforgettable Marilyn Monroe. When I started this work I wasn't sure whether to draw extreme detail like pores and every strand of hair, which would have required some level of imagination since the quality of the reference photo was not too good. But while progressing I began to lean more towards creating a visual impression rather than going photo realistic. The impression being a soft, dreamy image. The dimensions at which this work was drawn are height x width = 165 x 126 cm. But since it entirely consists of vectors it can be re-scaled to any desired size without loss of quality.

  16. This normally occurs when the .EPS file contains embedded Adobe Illustrator data that Affinity can't read. This is because the .EPS format doesn't support features such as blend effects, transparency, mesh fills etc. Unfortunately, there's little we can do and we would suggest that you get a .PDF copy of the file to use in Affinity.
  17. Yes, but they need to contain an embedded PDF compatible file/stream. When we open .ai (Adobe Illustrator) files into our apps, we actually open and display the embedded PDF compatible file/stream. If you open an .ai (Adobe Illustrator) file that doesn't contain an embedded PDF compatible file/stream, you will get the following message:

    Share your HALLOWEEN art

    Hello community, I would like to use this post to ask everyone to show something done in Affinity Designer, Photo or Publisher, main theme Halloween. It does not matter if it is something simple or complex, it is simply to show something done by you. To start, here is my contribution.
  20. Hello all, I've been looking for an answer to this through searching around but haven't found a clear answer, so I decided to bring my concerns here before I tear my hair out. Forgive me if the answer is simple or if I missed something obvious here. I've been interested in doing some simple, line and trim animations in After Effects based on pre-done and similar vector element in Affinity Designer. However, I'm encountering a problem in that, while I am able to export the shapes and elements to use for this process, I am unable to do the same with paths, which makes the trim path function... rather awkward to use. When I researched this, it seemed like there is a way to do this, but it was not explained clearly, so I don't know where I am making any errors. Any help would be appreciated.
  21. A very simple set of shapes, and a first post of something I've done with Designer on iPad ... Feedback welcome.
  22. hey folks, a tutorial showing the real process of making an illustration using Affinity Designer, enjoy! With nice tips, I hope you will enjoy!
  23. My affinity designer keep lagging once I draw a fair amount of art on my canvas and after a while it crashes its so annoying and never did this till yesterday pleeeaasssseee HELP!! I need to get my art done I've tried all I can. restarted my whole computer shut it down all. I have an MacOS... Processor - 3.4 GHz intel Core i5, Memory - 16GB 1600 MHz DDR3 (I've deleted several things from my Mac and have lots of space for more) Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M 2 GB. Please get back to me!
  24. I added some text with layer effects (shadow, outer glow) on a gradient background. Here is how it's appearing at 90% zoom. Exported it into EPS with these settings: Opened the EPS and there are visible "rectangles" or "box" around the text! It's more visible in the latter text. I also noticed this in layers by hiding the background layer. Tried converting the text to curves. No change in result. I've attached the afdesign and EPS file. Is this a bug? TEST.afdesign TEST.eps
