  2. I am wondering if there is a links panel that shows you a list of all images, as in AI where you can choose one and then relink/replace it? I do a lot of repetitive designs where all I do is swap out the image. When I searched the forums here, the closest thing I found was a request for Publisher beta, to add a links panel. How do you replace images in AD?
  3. Hello, I’m wondering if there is a way to ‘select all’ on Affinity Designer IPad. When working with many layers (over 50), is there a way to ‘select all’ or quickly select without having to select individually? I am able to use the move tool to ‘drag select’ over ungrouped layers but if the layers are in groups it only selects the group not the individual layers. Any help would great Thanks
  4. Hello, i am new to Affinity Designer. So far everything seems perfect, with 1 exception; resizing text frames breaks words instead of flowing the whole word to the next line. Couldn't find any solution, it seems i am the only one having this issue. To clarify i am attaching a video file.

  5. Hello there! I am currently trying to resize an existing artboard to an exact value using the transform panel, however I can't get the textframes to scale with the artboard, rather than just changing the frame size. When I use the "scale handle" and "manually" resize the artboard, it works just fine. How would I go about doing it with the transform panel? I have this question also over on stackexchange: https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/120555/affinity-designer-how-do-i-make-textframes-scale-with-the-artboard-if-i-scale-b Also attached you should find a gif demonstrating the issue I am facing.
  6. Is there an equivalent to Adobe Illustrator's shaper tool I can use to quickly cut off excess elements of overlapping shapes? In Illustrator, once accessed using the shortcut shift + m, it can be used to quickly cut and combine selected shapes. (I have attached a video demonstrating the feature) Since this tool was pretty handy in quickly creating new shapes out of a bunch of others, it would be stoked to learn if something similar exists within Affinity Designer! Thanks in advance. PS: I am new to the forum and forums in general, so let me know if I may have posted this the wrong way Shaper Tool Demonstration.mov
  7. Hey guys, I was doing some icons and logos that are meant to be have the alpha channel and I want to give 'em shadows except since they're basically wireframes it goes through and through, is there perhaps some sort of eraser or mask that when applied above something it acts like a window so you see right pass through it to the canvas/artboard?? ...and maybe thus eliminating the shadows from inside. This is what the shadows look like, they're way overblown here to figura out placement, color, all that, but they're gonna be super subtle, maybe it's not an issue in the end but I'll know and I'll go insane with nightmares someone in the news or something zoomed in and saw them. I tried "air"-brushing what I want gone (except of course for the dark/black frame) but I just know discovered knowing a little Designer will get you nowhere in Affinity Photo. This is not the first time I think if maybe there were some filter, I don't remember when or what was I messing up but I remember thinking it, so if you know anything, a workaround even, I'll be forever grateful! <3
  8. I have just updated my affinity design and the behavior of the text bloc as changed. How can resize my text bloc without scaling its content ? I dont want to manually insert line return each time I want to change the size of the text bloc. Thanks

  11. Hi, your products are really good and i like them very much, but they look in my opinion child with rainbow icons. It would be nice if you add more options to icons colors so they can be gray or any color you want, so they can look more professional. I think that people think that your products are not professional as others because that child look to it, so please add more themes or just change icons color.

  13. Hey guys, another quick tutorial showing the way I use to add long shadows to text or flat icons.
  14. Hi, I’m pretty sure I’m missing something obvious, but how do you exit the text editing mode without having to switch tools in Affinity Designer ? In Photoshop cmd + return will do this, but in AD it converts the text to curves (witch leads to numerous errors on my part. So much that I now have changed the shortcut). If there is a way I would love to hear about it otherwise, I would love to see this added.
  15. Hi! So yeah, you saw the title... The issue is that I was being stupid and didn't read this part in this post: "Hey don't use Affinity Designer Customer Beta in your work, because you can't backward them to the regular Affinity Designer." or something like that. And since I didn't see that I was again stupid and began making a large project for my graphics design business. Now I can't export it to a PSD file and that's the only way I can send it over to my customer. (My project would take a long time to recreate, so please gimme any ideas) Is there ANY way to get back my files from Affinity Designer Customer Beta? I have tried so many things, but keeps on popping up with errors, and searching on Google ain't working either. PLEASE HELP!
  16. Hi guys, just a quick and easy way to create a waves pattern or a chevron pattern without using the pen tool.
  17. Is it possible to import/export Swatch Palletes for the iPad Version of Affinity Designer (or Photo, for that matter)? I have purchased several commercial products that include colors that I cannot install on iPad version. Yes, the makers of these products need to maybe take the iOS crowd into consideration. But my question is: it that even possible for them to do?
  18. According to the Affinity Store, "when you launch your product, you’ll be prompted to download the latest update if available. On clicking Download you will be directed to a web page that will offer you the latest Windows release for your Affinity product." I've had Affinity Designer since December 2017 and have not been prompted to download any updates. The version I currently have is 1.65.123. Can somebody tell me is there been updates since then? (I'm getting numerous crashes so I'm thinking that it has to do with not having the latest version.) If so, is there a link to get the updates? TIA
  19. Hey guys! I am new to the affinity scene and just wondering if I can add a logo or photo behind something or someone? thanks :)
  20. I want to create graphics that look like they're on paper and cut out. I want to duplicate this paper form and move it for a shadow. The result should look like in the OpenClipart example: https://openclipart.org/detail/160609/new-cartoon-giraffe I don't get a suitable result with the effects. The graphics consist of lines and are in a group. Is there a possibility to create a border automatically (like in the example manually)? Regards test.afdesign
  21. On Affinity Designer, when I am trying to create a new, or edit any Text Styles, the app on macOS is crashing. When I am trying to create any type of text style (paragraph, character, or group styles), the Affinity Designer app is crashing. I tried to edit existing text styles, either by clicking the menu > Edit "Body", either by double clicking the Text Style, but again the app crash always, for any text style, and for any document (including creating a new, empty document). For all cases, the popup window to create/edit the style briefly appears, and immediately the app crash. I have the latest version of Affinity Designer: v1.6.1 and the latest version of macOS Mojave: v10.14.3
  22. Simple tutorial showing how you can create a vector compass using simple shapes.
  23. Hello Affinity users, I'm new to designing and i despair on a (i suppose) simple task. I try to create a graffiti and have issues with overlapping letters/shapes with shadows. I need a small hint how "one" would do that. I attached a sample which should show my problem. Left is a hand-drawn sketch what i try to achieve: A letter "D" with an arrow which drops its shadow to the rest of the shape with a gradation from light blue to dark blue. Thanks a lot for your help! Claus graffiti_letter.afdesign
  24. If there is already a graphic style in one color, e.g. red, it is not possible to create new graphic styles with the same red, but different line widths. I tested this with the outline color for paths and rectangles. The problem occurs only with contours without filling.
