  1. Hello guys! Recently I´ve updated my affinity designer version from 1.7.0. to 1.7.1.404 and so far I´m really enjoying it and loving it for it´s slick design and new functions. One function/tool I was really excited to play around with was the multibrush-tool. The thing is I still can´t find this tool although I did check out the various brush presets in designer as well as pixelpersona-mode. Maybe I overlooked something which is crucial in order to get the multibrush option to work? Thanks for any help!
  2. Learn simple Vector Design with Affinity Designer. This time we create 3 Ice Cream designs, inspired by a FreePik Artwork. It's always great to learn from other artists, see what they do and recreate it. Learn to work with Vector Shapes, Paths, Curves, Colors and more, to create these beautiful designs Original Art Source: https://www.freepik.com/free-vector/ice-cream-time_1242306.htm Support me on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/sarikas Follow me on: https://www.facebook.com/sarikastutorials https://www.instagram.com/sarikasat/ Join us on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/AffinityPhotoTuts/
  3. I own Affinity Designer and use it to create wedding stationery which I outsource to a local printshop for printing. I always convert the documents to a PDF before emailing to the printshop and have never had any problems before now. This is what is showing up on their end (on my end it is just a nice white border). I have ungrouped every single element in the file and converted them all to curves. I feel like I've tried everything and I'm not sure what to do next to ensure it shows up correctly and can be printed for my customer! * NOTE this is a screenshot that they sent me. I do my work on an iMac and it looks like they use Windows but like I said I've never had any issues in the past with them!*
  4. If you change the displayed/active artboard of a multi artboard Designer file placed on a master page, this change won't be reflected on regular pages. It always shows the artboard that was first visible upon placing the file. It's possible this also happens with other types of multipage documents (Affinity Photo, PDFs) but I only tested with Designer files. Steps to reproduce: Open Affinity Designer Create a new document with 2 Artboards Draw a purple circle on the first artboard and a blue square in the second, just so they're instantly recognizable Save it somewhere, you can now close Designer, it won't be used anymore Create a new Publisher file, check Default Master so a master page is already applied to any pages added Add a few pages to the document, let's say 6, just so the issue is more evident Double click Master A in the Pages panel so you can add elements to it Place the Designer document you saved on step 4, by default it should show the first artboard, the purple circle Notice the purple circle is correctly displayed on all pages where the Master A is applied Back on the Master A, select the placed file and use the context toolbar to change to the second artboard You should now see the blue square on the master page as expected Notice that the blue square is not being shown on the pages where the master is applied, instead you continue to see the purple circle This is not just a visual bug, if you export a PDF all pages will indeed have the purple circle instead of the blue square Thanks!
  5. Leading (in paragraph settings) should default to 120% rather than 103% - like in other design software. Apart from 120% being the standard in other software like Adobe CS. 120% leading is known to be best practice in graphics design in general. It's just a better starting point that does not even have to be changed in most cases. Moreover a leading value of 120% has even been the default in the successors of Affinity products. If you don't want to change the default of 103%, please make the default leading value configurable in the settings dialog!
  6. Hello everyone, I am a former graphic designer and logo designer. I got Affinity Designer 2 years ago, for graphic design purposes. But now I don't do these anymore. I want to try my hand at digital art. I know Affinity Photo is better for digital art. Is Affinity Designer good enough? or do I need Affinity Photo?
  7. Hello again :-) I do transit maps (diagrams) for fun in my spare time to relax. Here is another one of my recent works: a Lille (France) Tramway and Métro system map in my own interpretation (unofficial of course). I have included railways and their stations as well. The whole map is entirely done with Affinity Designer. If you have any thoughts on it or feedack this is much appreciated. Have a great day/night! Chris
  8. Hey there, It's always a pleasure to share with the Affinity's community how I design my pieces to make the games. regards, Jhonatan
  9. Sundays are always good for experimentation and blowing off some creative steam, without client deadlines and briefs. So for this Sunday I created a poster for one of my favorite Electronic Music producers: Chicane. Chicane has released a few albums that have been my creative companions for many many years ad I always go back to them when inspiration is needed. Here you can see the poster and some screenshots with details. Got any questions? Let me know. I would be more than happy to answer them Cheers from Greece Stratos.
  10. Hello, I am starting to re-learn Designer with the arrival of 1.7, and there are a few things that I didn't undertsand first time, with no improvement on understanding with the new version First one is a biggie: What on earth is OpencolorIO. Mind you, I don't work in animated movies and rarely handle LUTs (although it may happen). I checked the help files (didn't help), checked the OpenIO website (Very obscure language), and also this very forum (with a link in one thread refering to explanatory videos - link is broken on Vimeo) I am generally fairly familiar with colour management, but fail to get the concept of OpencolorIO... It's probably that they don't use the same jargon as I am. Can anyone either point me to simpler language references or maybe attempt at explaining themselves? (you can even use puppet socks if all fails ) Thanks so much in advance!
  11. Hi guys, I wanted to show some work I made using Affinity Designer and After Effects. When I started learning how to animate, it was hard to find info on how to make designs in Affinity Designer and animate them with After Effects. After some experimentation, I figured a decent workflow. As you can see, I'm not limited by the lack of integration between the two software suites. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to help.

  12. The Summer Solstice yesterday gave everyone in the northern hemisphere our maximum amount of sunlight for 2019. The day after the 1st day of Summer contains exactly 1 second less daylight (here in my region of NY along with anyone else on the globe at this latitude). Each day for the next six months will progressively have even less daylight. LESSON: Enjoy — and don't waste — your daylight.
  13. I've made a document containing 4 artboards, all with the same layout etc. But when exporting to a PDF file their order has changed. Instead of seeing first artboard 1 to 4, I'm now seeing artboard 4 to 1. What am I doing wrong? MacOS 10.13.6 with Affinity Designer 1.7.1 Thanks in advance.
  14. Hi there, Is there any way to import or copy over a number of pdf profiles I use in PagePlus X9 (.PDF_Profile), into Affinity Publisher without redoing them all? Would be great to import table styles too... I have a ton I really don't want to have to redo! Also, any .ppp import support forthcoming? Many thanks,
  15. I used the pen tool on this program way back when (probably late 2017) and had no problem tracing my sketches into vector art. Now when I alt click a node (in 1.7) it turns the entire line straight instead of just removing one handle. Is this supposed to happen? Because right now the tool is virtually unusable.
  16. The software (Affinity Designer v 1.7.1.404) don´t recognize my wacom tablet. I´ve a wacom intuos pro running whit the latest drivers
  17. Hello everyone! I've been loving the 1.7 update and publisher, tho I've been having a issue when moving between apps, I have a project in Affinity Publisher and I wanted to move it into the (Full version of) Affinity Designer. (I know Publish haves the Designer Persona tho it dose not have the persona within designer such as the Export Persona) I needed to use the Export person to export a slice from the project. So I went to File > Edit in Designer (this moves the project from Publisher over to Designer (full version (not persona)) I then was able to do what I needed but there seems to move no way to move the project back from Designer to Publisher? Is there way to move the project back? (same issue from Publisher to Photo) Thanks for your time, Andrew.
  18. hello guys, i got a problem with my installation of Affinity Design (free trial). everytime i install it, i get an failed setup command.(in german Fehler beim setup) i read something in the forum about i need the newest version of microsoft .NET but i already installed it before and it doesnt work. pls help me. i want to buy this software in the future thx for help. regards Rumdopf
  19. Is there a setting to change the way selecting objects works? How do I select one text box behind another, without first having dragged a selection around both, and shift clicking the top object? The bounding box for the top object doesn't actually have anything directly above the object that is below it. But in order for me to select the object below, I have to select them both and deselect the top one. Basically I have an ai that was converted to affdesigner. There are a lot of text objects that converted in strange ways and it's somewhat of a hassle selecting them sometimes. Here's an example. But sometimes it's even more strange because although the "a different text box" in this example, is smaller than the other box, sometimes it's converted in a way where even that small text box is really large. I forget what this was called in AI but I remember there was a setting for it. I think this was in addition to using the direct selection tool. I realize that going forward the best way to make the same kind of looking layout would be to use text box plus artistic text, but I'm dealing with several files converted from AI.
  20. Hi, Sorry if this has been already asked. For printing, cmyk is the rule in APub, fine. Now that there is this studio link, I can imagine placing APh and AD files directly in tthe APub file but I am used first to setup my documents in RGB... well, I am a bit confused. Is the RGB/CMYK conversion going to happen during pdf export ? Thanks. P.

  22. Latest version of Affinity designer installation keeps failing. Only one topic here addresses such similar case, in which a solution is to do a clean reboot. Wich won't cut it, in my case. As I attempt installation, by pressing "update" in the setup/installation-wizard window. It will say "preparing" and some loading bar will fill up real quick, when full or almost full, it'll simply & plainly display a "failed" in the window. This happens when I try and install the latest version, I already have affinity designer installed. Is that mabey the problem? I just don't want to find myself in a situation where I have uninstalled affinity designer and still it won't work...like me if it won't ha ha. I'm running it in Windows 8.1
  23. Hey again :-) I do transit maps (diagrams) for fun in my spare time to relax. Here is another one of my recent works: the Sarajevo Tram and Trolleybus Network in my own interpretation (unofficial of course). By the way: there is no official diagram and a pride month edition as there aren't official colors too. The whole map is entirely done with Affinity Designer. If you have any thoughts on it or feedack this is much appreciated. Have a great day! Chris

    Return to 1.6 Text Styles?

    Is there any way to get the text styles back from Designer 1.6? I'm absolutely LOVING the 1.7 update and I'm grateful to not have to use Adobe but these 1.7 text styles are just awful. The ones from 1.6 were much better, even if there were only around 4 or 5.
  25. We are pleased to announce a major update for the MacOS release of Affinity Designer, version 1.7.1 Changes in this build The changes in Affinity Designer for MacOS 1.7.1 over the recent release Affinity Designer 1.7.0 are as follows: Support for multi-page Affinity Publisher documents Fixed sporadic crash with HSL range control Removed limits to shadows highlights effects Avoid over saturated shadows and washed out highlights New curve for highlights filter applied to bounded pixel formats Remap shadows and highlights slider ranges Fix for incorrect Alt(Option) + drag cloning functionality in Move Tool Fix for export dialog crashes and permissions prompt Change default stroke miter limit to be 2.0 Improved brush performance on larger documents Fix for Metal issues on some Intel GPUs and older operating systems Fix for OS X Lion compatibility issues Changes in 1.7.x Since 1.6.1 The changes in Affinity Designer for MacOS 1.7.1 over the last Affinity Designer patch 1.6.1 (1.6.5 PK) are as follows: Tools We've overhauled most of the core tools, adding subtle new features to make you more productive. New Point Transform Tool allows you to scale and rotate objects from any node. The Node Tool now contains a 'Transform Node' option which provides a containing box for the selected nodes and allows for more freeform editing of the nodes. New 'Cube' grid setup mode (take a look in 'View' -> 'Grid and Axis Manager...'). Pen tool now has a 'rubber band' mode and also a mode to allow future curves to be added to the current object's curves (for example, the character 'a' is constructed of two curves in a single 'curve object' and this mode makes that construction simpler). Node tool can now auto-snap nodes if you drag a node from one curve over the top of a node from another (selected) curve and pause, it will offer to snap to the same geometry as the node you're hovering over (ie, modify the on and off-curve nodes to match). This is really useful for trying to reconstruct areas of one curve from another curve. Node tool now allows for lasso selection of nodes by holding the Alt/Option key and dragging a selection lasso. Pencil tool now offers a 'sculpt' mode that allows for extending or manipulating curves in a more natural way. More to come in this area soon. Many tools now allow for 'Alignment widgets' which you can toggle the visibility of in the context toolbar. When enabled you can visually adjust the alignment or even, for example, 'align to centre, snapped to the left edge of this object' by simply click/dragging. Fill tool correctly allows editing of skewed fill handles and newly-created skewed fills draw much nicer now. Ruler origin can be edited by simply dragging the area where the rulers intersect each other - it can even be snapped onto objects in the document. Guides can be edited in most tools by simply dragging a guide in the ruler area. Grid setup is now more interactive: origin can be dragged, axis scale adjusted and angle adjusted on-document, complete with snapping to objects and angles in the document to help you reconstruct useful grids from finished artworks or sketches. By enabling 'Edit in Plane' on the new Isometric Panel, tools can edit objects and appear to make those edits along the currently active plane - extremely useful for artists who enjoy working with any axonometric projections. You can now drag the rotation centre point (when enabled on the context toolbar) while holding Ctrl and it will translate the object - this is actually very useful for positioning and snapping objects relative to others. Shapes tools now have presets so you can create your own favourite shape setups and more easily use them again. There are just far too many subtle tool changes to mention here, but hopefully you'll find the tools much improved General Arrowheads are now available in the Stroke Panel. New Appearance Panel allows for multiple strokes and fills on a single shape. HDR / EDR monitor support New brushes, styles and assets are now shipped with the product. Visible bleed (accessed from the View menu) so you can more easily design into the bleed area - a common feature request. “Alternate futures” for document history have been added. Traditionally, if you roll back the undo history then do something else all your changes after that point are lost. Designer will now display a small branch icon in the history tab when you do this. Pressing that button will cycle between all the different “futures” after that history entry - meaning you will never lose work you have done. New 'Isometric Panel' makes it easy to setup and work with various axonometric projections within the application. HEIF images can now be loaded directly into Designer. If they contain a depth map, this will also be loaded as a second layer. Because depth maps are typically lower resolution than the main image, optional “smart” upsampling will be performed. Designer now supports custom document presets - a popular feature request. A new blend mode - Linear Burn - has been added. Layers Panel now allows you to tag individual layers with a colour and display thumbnails with transparent backgrounds and at different sizes. New “Move inside / outside” commands have been added - useful for quickly clipping/unclipping. New "Merge curves/Separate curves" commands. Grids now have an editable number of angle subdivisions. The Hard Mix blend mode has been improved. Numerous text improvements have been made - including new features such as bullets and numbering. Significant PDF import / export improvements and fixes. Improved Freehand import slightly - failing to read all of a file shouldn't force it to produce a 'failed to load' response, instead we just load the bits that we *could* read New splash screen and Persona icons Brushes Designer 1.7 introduces a new “sub-brush” mechanism, developed in conjunction with Paolo Limoncelli (DAUB® Brushes). This exciting feature allows any raster brush to have a list of other brushes attached which will draw at the same time. Each sub-brush has a fully separate and customisable set of dynamics. You can control when the sub-brushes are drawn and how they blend with the main brush. Symmetry (up to 32-way) is now supported - including on-canvas controls and optional mirroring. Wet edges and accumulation are now available on colour brushes and brushes with HSL variance. Brushes with multiple nozzle textures have always chosen the nozzle at random. In 1.7, the nozzle choice has a dynamic controller and ramp for greater control. All pixel brush tools now support left and right arrow keys for rotation - a common feature request. Adjustments The HSL adjustment layer has been rewritten. It now supports custom hue ranges, a new algorithm, new UI and picker controls. The Levels adjustment layer now supports output levels - a common feature request. The White Balance adjustment layer has been rewritten. The Selective Colour adjustment layer has been rewritten. PSD import / export of adjustments has been improved. The Vibrance adjustment layer has been rewritten. The Recolour adjustment layer has gained a lightness slider.
