  1. I’m looking for a way to add new points in a curve by snapping to other points/objects on the iPad. In this case there are two curves with the endpoints snapped on the red stroke; I need to put two points on that curve exactly over the two endpoints, so then I could split the line into three pieces. On desktop this should be quite easy since you can move the cursor first, snap it and then put the point. Of course I want to preserve the current curvature of the stroke, so adding a point and then moving it to its destinations it’s not the right solution.
  2. Hello - Is there a way to visually differentiate between (real) Text vs Text that has been converted to Curves, when viewing in Outline View Mode? As it stands, I only see a "wireframe" outline of the text which looks exactly like the text that has been converted to path curves. In the first example below, the top is still text and the bottom have been converted to curves. This makes it difficult to understand which element group is actual text vs. paths when working in Outline View mode. Sorry if I've overlooked a function or feature. Otherwise, would love to see a feature like I'm showing
  3. Hi all! I am writing you not as the usually nitpicky and potential Affinity-fanboy-who-lives-off-of-Publisher (I do currently live off of InDesign, so it would be only a matter of time, but things just may take a bit of a turn in my career path soon-ish), but as a prospective full-blown professional type designer and current type design teacher with some serious grievances to air; as you may guess, I recommend Affinity apps for most graphic design related tasks, and even though I vehemently tell all my students to familiarize themselves with type design packages (namely Glyphs.app, FontLa
  4. Being a beginner, I jumped the gun on designing this. I had to split my poorly designed shadow. And now, I cant seem to combine it correctly without getting it all, well; wonky. Please help me finish this battle once and for all. How do I connect these nodes?
  5. Hey there :) Whenever I try to use curves in Develop Persona, the images I work on get these glitches and I can't see what the image is going to look like. Let me take you through my process, maybe I am doing something wrong... I open a RAW file into Affinity Photo (Taken on Canon 700d) I do basic edits under 'basic,' such as contrast, saturation, shadows and highlight (etc.) I then move over into 'lens,' and load a basic preset that I have created in there. I then move over to 'details,' and load another preset, and adjust where necessary. Then
  6. A continuing annoyance is that when I go to selected an existing node in Curves, AP creates a new one, with the result that the slightest movement makes the curve go haywire. A simple fix is a 'snap to node' where a click close to a node results in the node being selected rather than a new one created. Perhaps this feature could be selectable in preferences. Intelligently, this would take account of screen size and resolution (and maybe even eye-screen distance, such as where desktops are likely to be further away than laptops, which are further away than tablets). Tx
  7. Hello! Please have a look at the following image: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1O8yEvxtFKmYVeJZn5QgdxLKUXv_eRsdO/view?usp=sharing It's a low-res artwork of a neuron, often found in scientific contexts. The left part is the original image, the right part is the original image where black has been replaced by white (so that this image can be put on dark backgrounds). The right part is also the result of Photoshop, where I've simply used "Replace Color", chose full black to be replaced by full white, tweaked a little bit with the tolerance, and that's it. I'm having trouble
  8. Just an idea. What if you had a curves-type control with colour wheel (like in HSL) input and output? Come to that, what other controls could use this interface? Tx
  9. Hi There, I'm tryin to fill a curves shape so it has a black outline and a white fill. This file though has curves and a fill already, so I'm not able to fill it any further. Changing the outline to be black by changing the fill is no problem. How should I go about doing this...? Lily.afdesign
  10. Is there a way to set grays in Affinity Photos? Many images I run across have color casts, normally I set grays, then blacks, then whites. Is there anyway to do this in Affinity Photo. So far the only way I see is to manipulate the Channel Curves.
  11. When I buy vector clip art with a commercial license it usually comes in the form of an eps file. Usually all the designs are on one "page". I am finding it very time consuming and hair pulling to isolate what I want from that. I can't "draw a box" around it because it selects everything (the whole "page"). Say I bought 20 cats. They are all on one main layer and I want only one cat. Sometimes I can click on something in the layers panel and when that itty bitty dot is selected I can then click on the cat I want and get one itty bitty little dot in the right cat to be highlighted.
  12. I'm sorry if this is an obvious question but I simply can't figure out how to select nodes on a path in any way other than the rectangular selection. If I want to more precisely select nodes (eg, with a more freehand selection or through multiple selections), how can one do that? For example, how could one select only the 'E' in the attached example?
  13. Missing in Photo: more options for output format in export (important for TIFF - more compatibility with old software) BMP export on/off dither for rasterizing tolerance option for "Selection brush tool" user presets for all filters snapping for "Crop tool" circle overlay in "Crop tool" "Mesh warp tool" for curves (without rasterizing) "Warp text" like in Photoshop "Invert mask" function base RGB adjustment (3 trackbars with range -255 - + 255 (in 8 bit)) adjustment presets in DESIGNER Thanks for considering proposals.
  14. The Secret to Sexy Curves is a 19 minute video about how to use the pen tool in Affinity Designer. I share the secrets to a perfect sexy curve and together we cover everything you need to know to successfully use the pen tool to create your own sexy curves. This is a great video for both beginners and intermediate users. You’ll learn how to join lines, add and delete nodes, determine the perfect placement for a node, and how to use and adjust the control handles. I’ll show you the shortcuts to moving in and around your artwork, and we’ll even set your mouse up to zoom in and out as you
  15. intelligent_rulers_upd2.afdesign Because some are waiting tooooooooo long for better rulers including a “change origin point” feature, we made a flexible ruler for dm, Berthold points, Pica points, Didot points, DTP Cicero and other units that you can change easily for your own needs just in seconds. Even if you need furlong, light-nanoseconds, Fournier point … no problem. Now you can have many rulers with different units at the same time. And they even can measure curves. Some backgrounds can be found somewhere. Have fun and help to improve Affinity ap
  16. Hi, just as I like this software and need to share some stuff, here are 2 or 3 pictures using stacking (panorama, and stacks) some effects have been applied with Nik Collection (HDR effects)
  17. I created a curve in Affinity Designer. I copy over, flip the horizontal to create two equal symmetrical shapes. With snapping on I move them so they are flush together, then I add curves again to create a new shape which are these two, identical and symmetrical shapes together. Why then does it add these nodes to the new curve?
  18. Hi, I'm on Photo 1.6.6, Mac OS 10.13.3. Just wondering - is there a trick to using the pen tool to draw multiple curves on the same layer? I draw the first curve, and I get image one (stroked to make it a bit clearer). What I'd like to to do is continue drawing on the same layer, to create a second curve. But as soon as I start to draw, Photo creates a second curve layer (image 2). I know that I can now select both layers, pull down the Layers menu and Choose Geometry... Add... (giving me image 3).
  19. I purchased Affinity at the Mac App Store yesterday and I am enjoying it greatly. I haven't been able, however, to activate or enable the picker on a curves panel. Is there a setting I have missed in the preferences or a particular keyboard shortcut? I watched a video where someone clicks on the picker and then on he image in order to place nodes in the curves adjustment. In my case this process is not working, I am unable to place nodes on the curves panel. Thanks for your help.
  20. Hi, When using Curves Adjustment layer and selecting LAB color space for the curves adjustment for an image in RGB space, the histogram shown behind the curve is incorrect. It still shows the RGB channel histograms behind, such that Lightness curve has the Red channel histogram, AOpponent has the Green channel histogram, and BOpponent has the Blue channel histogram. This is very misleading and even worse than not having a histogram. The same happens for CMYK curves.
  21. Having a curves adjustment with the RGB / Alpha Channel selected and modified has no effect on alpha values on a Pixel layer. As comparison it has an effect when applied to a Mask layer. In the example below, my pixel layer has plenty of partially transparent areas, but no effect with the Curve adjustment.
  22. I'm going through the Affinity Designer Work Book and am doing the 'Lace Galleries' chapter. On page 325, they go through the process of drawing in pencil to create a series of random filled curves. You then group all these into one layer, duplicate layer several times, and with each duplicate you alter the scale and rotation so you end up with a series of even more random strokes/curves. I duplicate these groups as instructed. But whenever I go to move each group, the grouped curves layer jumps to the top of the layer stack, whereas before they were nested in the logo I have. What am I m
  23. I'd like to suggest the curves sub panel under Tones in the Develop Persona have the input / output values displayed for given points. In addition, I'd like this panel to include an 'editor' feature, whereby the option of entering the numerical values for each point on the curve. It would also be appreciated if the x and y axis (0-255) could be delimitated in 10ths like Photoshop. Either replacing quarter tones, or, in addition to the quarter tones. :) Nick
  24. Hi everyone, I have looked in the forum for a trace of this, and couldn't find it in the functionalities in the App, but it is such a sadly missing function of Illustrator that it is, for me, entirely necessary to add it to Affinity Designer to make it THE Adobe killer. Some of you might have used Inkscape in the past, I discovered it very recently, being a mac user (and it is far from user friendly on a Mac...): The Spiro Spline, or automatic smooth curves, swirls and swooshes. For both typography and ornaments, 2 "hot topics" nowadays, this tool is just fantastic. There ar
  25. Hi, Even if I use the whole pixels options, this sometimes fails, and I found some patterns: 1. For text for example, if you enter the font size, the width/height/x/y become decimals. This only happens for the ARTISTIC TEXT TOOL, not the FRAME TEXT TOOL. 2. When resizing an object either by hand, while holding down SHIFT, or when entering a WIDTH or HEIGHT value and having the "lock aspect ratio" enabled. That also results in decimals. It's really annoying for web, where you have whole pixels. Whole pixels is extremely important when working on somethin
