  1. Is there a short cut / shortcut key for quickly cloning the color of one object to another? For example, I have a square that is purple and a circle that is orange. I select the circle and would like to sample the color from the square to turn it purple. The only way I can seemingly do it is to select and drag the eyedropper tool (from the color palette), then sample the color from the square. Then I need to select my circle then click the colored sample from the eyedropper in the palette to change it's color. Basically, I'm looking for the exact same function that illustrator provides when sampling / cloning colors and I have to assume Affinity Designer would not make it a three step process when it could be one. In illustrator you can quickly shortcut key to the Eyedropper tool and it changes the current objects color to anyone that you sample. Thanks everyone!
  2. I love Publisher but IMHO it has the worst colour system I have ever seen (in over 30 years). How did LAB, RGB and CMYK end up on the same palette when I only work in CMYK and the publication was set for CMYK? I NEVER work in LAB. I have 68 colours like this: "Rick 13-EN_No Photo 2 is the name of the publication. Useless as colour information for an in-document palette. It should be simple to create my own custom CMYK palette but instead it's horribly complicated, if not impossible. It's a monumental time waster. Why can I change a colour in this dialogue but not in that one. And then I can only change it in THAT dialogue, but not this one. A lot of things seem too clever by half in Publisher but colour handling is a serious fault in an otherwise pretty good app.
  3. Similar to this: The idea is to add a setting panel for colors that allow to edit the color of gradients, and objects in general, simultaneously or singular Adding other options for the settings, as saturation or brightness Most important for SVG format files
  4. Hello, if a nef-file is imported the colors shown are not the one in the file. Her is an example. The Capture NX is a NIKON Software. But also in othe Software like XnViewMP the colors are like in the Nikon Software. Only Affinity shows this colors.. Something wrong in the setting of then Program?
  5. When developing CR2 RAW file, affinitty photo changes the hue of reds. So far, the problem is with reds, no other color is affected. I attach three files, the CR2, the aphoto native and the jpeg exported from affinitty photo. As you may see, the lips are red in the CR2 but oranges in the aphoto file and the jpeg exported. Can tech support tell me how to fix it ? Greetings REDS_CR2.CR2 REDS_APHOTO.afphoto
  6. Below is a snap to help explain what I'm saying. I want to change the green fade to a blue fade. In order to do this I must type in the four CYMK or the three RGB numbers since I cannot drag a color or use the swatches panel to change a color in an effect. One day I hope this can be worked out, I would really be happy if I could use the eye dropper tool to click on the blue adjoining the green fade and have that happen as I work in the color area of the effect panels. That would be a huge help rather than looking up the colors numbers and typing them in.
  7. Only two months into using Affinity Designer here. Starting at some point through the progress of my project, any time I create and type new Artistic Text, a purple highlight appears behind it. I don't remember messing with any settings to make it appear. I've tried to look very carefully at the color options on the Artistic Text object but I can't find anything. What am I missing? This hasn't happened to me during other projects until after the 1.9 update, so there's the possibility of a bug or new feature/setting that I'm not aware of yet. I also attached what the problem looks like in Affinity Designer. The text color was intended to be white, and the color shows as white in the Color tab.
  8. Hi all This has been the week of figuring out how to get my colours sorted in Affinity Photo. There is no direct support for the ColorChecker Passport from X-Rite in Affinity Photo unfortunately but I did figure out how to do it with some help. If you use X-Right ColorChecker Passport these are the steps on how to do it. This might be painfully obvious to some people but for me it was all entirely new and took a while to get my head around so I hope that this is some use to people. 1. When you are shooting your photos in a location take a photo of the ColorChecker Passports colour cards and the white card. Make sure they are in the same place as your subject matter and are properly exposed. 2. Import all the photos from your session along with your pictures of the ColorChecker. 3. Open your photos of the ColorChecker in Affinity Photo crop them down if you like and export them as 16 bit Tiff files. 8 bit might work but I have been going with 16 4. Open ColorChecker Tiff photos with the new beta version of ColorChecker Passport Camera Calibration software in the ICC tab. 5. Export your ICC profiles naming them something so you know what photo shoot they go along with. 6. Close down Affinity Photo and then re-open it to refresh the ICC database 7. Open your photos from the associated photo shoot and go to the Document tab and select Assign ICC Profile and select the ICC file you just created. And if all goes well your colour is mostly corrected. 8. Now to set the white balances correctly. Go to White Balance in the Adjustment section. Click the Picker button and then click on the photo that you took during the photo shoot of your white card. This will then automatically make the adjustment. I hope that helps some folks. I did not understand any of this stuff three days ago and it was no fun trying to get my head around it for the first time. If anyone has tips on how to improve upon this workflow please share. I am by no means an expert on this subject. All the best!
  9. What are color fonts? They are the next big thing in graphic designThey bring multiple colors, shades, textures and transparency to type They include vector shapes, bitmap images or even both into font filesAnything I write here, would just be copying from this website, http://www.colorfonts.wtf/ Have a read through it, then decide if you want colour fonts. I know, that I want it!
  10. I really need to be able to import swatches in the iPad apps, and I can find no logical reason not to have this feature. I can import brushes, fonts, symbols, assets, but not swatches? It is essential when working with color to be able to import a palette with specific characteristics. On the desktop it is so easy to do, but on the iPad it is impossible... Also I considered creating a swatches set myself from an imported image, but this required so much back and forth, clicking and opening menus it was a nightmare and I gave up after 4 colors. Please implement importing swatches soon.
  11. It would be very useful to have functions to select the same: Color fill stroke (color / width) Appearance To quickly select all your outlines, or background element in 1 color. Speed is everything. :)
  12. Whenever I edit a global colour value I have a chance the popup will move around the screen after the edit. See the attached video, it makes more sense when you actually see it. I can’t find a way to consistently trigger it, but it feels like the closer the popup is to the bottom edge of the screen, the more likely it is to happen. But it’s not a certainty as you can see. I feel this might have something with the physical screen size of my device? It’s a 9.7” iPad Pro and the screen is getting cramped by today’s standards, maybe the low amount of space is making the popup be “unsure” of where to stay? I also feel like this is less likely to happen when the device is in portrait orientation, it still happens though, just less frequently. Thanks! IMG_0538.MP4
  13. 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.
  14. Hi there: I am not sure if this is a bug or not. I am having difficulty selecting a color for a design that I am working on and I am not sure if it is a bug or something else. I use a MacBook Pro 13" running MacOS 10.15.7 (Catalina). The difficulty that I have found relates to selecting different shades of orange - I have put a sample together - included below - which renders perfectly below which I also don't understand. On my machine whether it be the .afdesign file or a JPG/PNG/SVG, all of the colors are rendering as #FF0000. I am trying to figure out why this is happening and would welcome advise/comments. Thanks so much. -Michael
  15. I'm using a color balance adjustment layer, I toggle the "Preserve Luminosity" checkbox and nothing happens. I attach the same process done in Photoshop with exaggerated settings and the expected outcome. Photoshop: Affinity (Both are exactly the same, the histogram doesn't change one bit)
  16. I have a object that changes from grey to some greenish color cast when I apply a 3D fx. All colors within the 3D window have zero color, though I can visually correct by changing the light source color but that's less than accurate. Thoughts?
  17. Hello everyone, Lately I've been working on many grayscale line charts for a research paper and I'm finding one thing very frustrating. See my Screen capture >> When a line is selected their isn't any indication of what color it is? In this case I have the line selected and would like to find its grayscale level in the palette. Is this possible? Thanks
  18. Good morning everyone! I'm new to the forum, my name is Judith Vidal and I'm a concept artist. I've been using affinity photo for a few months for everything that is concept and illustration and this is one of the results of the experience, I hope you like it. You can see more work on my instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jvidaldraw/ Thanks J Vidal.
  19. I searched the forum but did not find this addressed (maybe my search was bad, so please link to topic if I missed it). Opening eps files in different applications always comes with some surprises. This screen dump shows the same eps file opened in AD (1.8x) and Adobe Illustrator CC2018. And I notice a few things. I have converted the document color space to RGB/8 sRGB in both applications and files. As you can see on the screen dump RGB color is slightly different from AI to AD (AI is on the left, AD on the right). As you also can see, layer are better organized in AI than AD. Layers are actually completely missing in AD... (I also tried in 1.9 beta AD but same same). Does anyone have some ideas how to make import/open of eps files in AD preserve layer hierachi better? And get color to match across applications? Or link to a topic that discusses this issue? Thanks in advance.
  20. Is there any plans to add CIE-LAB gradients for affinity? I've been playing around with them in Python and LAB-interpolated gradients look a lot better than RGB-interpolated gradients, especially for backgrounds and things like that. I looked through the SVG standard and SVG supports CIELAB interpolation, along with a few others. So is there any plans to add alternate gradient interpolations to Affinity designer? Or even a full LAB color space, like in Affinity Photo or photoshop? I added a photo for anyone that's interested (CIELAB on the left)
  21. Hi guys, I can't find a field for entering hex colour codes in Publisher. Same problem Affinity Photo and Designer. Someone can help?
  22. Just encountered a bug that seems to be still present with wrong color representation (washed out colors) when adding screenshots to Affinity Designer. It's a very similar issue as posted here and is not solved: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/85359-colour-distortion-drives-me-nuts/ https://marketmix.com/de/affinity-designer-photo-fehlfarben-screenshot/ (only German) Here the author sais that it was fixed in 1.6.1 but this bug seems to be back then because I still need to use the workaround from this blog. I try to give as many examples and data so you can track down this bug. - - - Steps to reproduce: 1. Create a screenshot with the mac internal screenshot tool (also tried another one from the app store with similiar results) with Command + Shift + 4 for example. 2. Save it to the desktop 3. Open Affinity Designer 4. Drag the screenshot from desktop into Affinity Designer (or File > New from clipboard or creating a canvas first and then pasting or dragging the screenshot) > Colors in AF are different than the screenshot with the mac preview app (see comparison screenshot below) File "Screenshot Original.png" is attached to this post so you can try it out. - - - Information: - iMac 21,5" Late 2015 - macOS Catalina 10.15.7 - Affinity Designer from the App Store (v1.8.6) - 2 Displays attached (HP E243i & Eizo EV2216W) Screenshot was taken on the internal iMac Display (and also tried it out with the external displays completely disconnected). - - - Screenshots to track down the issue: iMac Display Color Profile (German but relevant info is English) Information on the Screenshot itself (German but relevant info is color space RGB and color profile iMac) Affinity Designer Preferences Affinity Designer Document Setup Screenshot Comparison (left wrong color / right screenshot with mac preview app correct) - - - Other tests and workarounds: When inserting the same screenshot to Adobe XD or other Design apps the colors are fine. So seems to be an Affinity specific issue. Workaround is currently: Opening the screenshot with mac preview app > Tools > Assign profile > Color Sync Profile (Adobe RGB (1998)) > OK Then inserting it to Affinity Designer and the colors are fine and the document setup has set the profile to adobe instead of display. - - - Original Screenshot.png for you to try it out
  23. When I develop the css of a website, I like copy / paste the hex code of a color. When I like a color, I copy it hex code for use in the new creations. Show hex code of the color and allow to copy it with 1 click, could be perfect. What do you think of that ?
  24. I'm a 3D artist and all the other tools and software I use are easier to work with and make more sense with the HSV/HSB algorithm. It doesn't have to be the default, but having the option is absolutely necessary IMO.
  25. Hi, I am using the art text box in Affinity photo, and every now and then it will randomly fill in the background of the text box. Even if I delete the whole layer and make a new text box, it will add in the backfill. I have no idea what is triggering it or how to turn it off. The only way I’ve found around it yet is to start a new file all together, which, PAIN. I’ve also tried making sure my secondary color is blank. (See grey behind INKMAGINE in image below.) I feel like this is going to be a simple on/off something but i dunno what.
