  1. I had created a text box and I would like to fill it with a color and even change the stroke. If this option already exist it will be great to learn how to do it, otherwise, it can be an interesting implementation because this will avoid an extra layer as a background for the text.
  2. Being new to affinity designer, I couldn't make the decision on how to fill only parts of this vector. I'd like it to stay a vector instead of rasterizing it for paint mode, some im curious on how I can select only parts of the inside of vector id like to fill, as it is black and white and I would like to keep the middle parts of this rose transparent, well I fill the outline around it. Thank you, N0hva
  3. Hi. I have a simple 10x10 area I want to fill with a 1x1 pattern without stretching or distorting the pattern. I have drawn the initial pattern in AD. I can rasterize it, but the fill tool insists on stretching it to make it fit instead of repeating the raster. I'd prefer to keep the pattern 'live', like a symbol, so I can still edit it after setting up the file. Should I aim to work with the source pattern as an asset? a source? a bitmap fill (which seems like the worst option)? Thanks folks. Dying here.
  4. Affinity, Do you guys have a video showcasing how to fill aky of a drone 360 Pano? I came across a video on YouTube that showcased this, but cannot find it, nor can I remember if it was an "Affinity" showcased Video Workflow or someone else. Due to the Zenith constraints of Drone 360 image capture, I need to fill the sky. Thank you.
  5. Hi, I have a shape that is closed and contains a hole. On the picture joined : - This shape is a result of a boolean combination of 2 identical shapes slightly shifted. - The stroke is red - The fill is black. I want to fill the hole in the center of this shape. 1 - I tried all the boolean operations (including divide) with no success, it doesn't "restore" the 2 original shapes as some vertices have been merged. 2 - I tried removing vertices to restore a "filled" shape, but it is too hard as some vertices are overlapping other ones (is there a way to "hide" vertices like in Blender ?) 3 - I could redraw a shape on top of the original, but It's too hard because of the complexity of the bezier curves. 4 - I tried to make a square nested in this shape's layer, but it make the square appears only in the "fill" part of this shape (the black part). How can I fill the center of this shape ? Thank you, Cédric.
  6. Hi guys, There has been a bit of a nasty bug, and I thought I posted it, but it seems that I forgot. Basically, if you draw a circle, give it a color (blue for example), and then apply a a stroke to it, let's say white, and align it on the inside, the FILL color will be slightly visible around the edges of the circle. Which is really mot that good This is pretty important, since right now we have to find workarounds, so it would be great if this would be fixed for the next Beta version. I also attached a file that shows exactly what I mean Cheers, Chris outline-test.afdesign
  7. Hi guys, I have attached a small test file here. Basically, the fill can be seen going over the stroke, when the stroke is set to INSIDE. Thank you, Chris outline-test.afdesign
  8. I've got a few shapes where, at some point in the past, I've flipped them horizontally. To my surprise, when I filled them with text, the text was also reversed. Is there a way to tell Affinity to not keep that information hanging around, and just make the text object normally? Personally I feel like it shouldn't behave this way (if I wanted reversed text, I'd flip it after adding the words). There are work arounds, like combining some geometry, even if it doesn't alter the shape, will resolve the issue. Thanks!
  9. Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to fill a colored area of a bitmap logo to a different color yet keep the transparency around it (original was a png). In Photoshop I could just select "fill" then pick my fill color and check the keep transparency checkbox.. How do I achieve this in AP ? THX
  10. Really enjoying my trial so far, and looking to buy in the next day or so if we can fix this. I'm following the video in this post: Unfortunately, going to Edit -> Inpaint results in spinning all CPU cores for about 5 minutes, then spinning 1 core after that for... well, it's still going about 15 minutes later: I'm on macOS 10.13.2. I tried it on small regions of about 1000 sq. pixels and it finishes quickly but leaves the area unchanged. Is this a bug or am I doing it wrong? Thanks, Matt Edit: Okay, so on smaller areas the best I've gotten is this (I would expect the selected region to be entirely filled by extending the blue part on bottom - look at the weird shape):
  11. Hi, Affinity Designer newbie here, using desktop version on an iMac. I've opened a couple of the sample Designer files to see how they work and everything looks fairly familiar, or at least intuitive. One thing that's puzzled me is the fill colour in the background blue in the sample file 'Prison of Arts'. It's a dark blue colour, but has a slight graininess to it, rather like adding noise in Photoshop. A new rectangle, filled with a colour also takes on this graininess. I quite like the effect, but can't replicate it in a new file - nor can I turn it off in the sample file 'Prison of Arts'. I've explored settings, effects and all sorts, but can't find how to add or turn off the effect - any help gratefully received. Screenshot at 200% scale attached.
  12. Hello and happy holidays, For my current project I've been using the Fill Tool [G] in Designer to edit stroke gradients a lot. The Fill Tool doesn't remember that I'm using the stroke context, though. It's a bit slow to have to click the context dropdown and switch it from Fill (the default) to Stroke every time I switch tools back and forth. Does anyone know a way to either make the Fill Tool remember my context preference, or (preferably) assign a hotkey to toggle between the Fill and Stroke context? This would really help my workflow! I'm on a Mac, Designer 1.6. Thanks!
  13. Hello, Try these steps in Affinity Photo: - open an image - select Pen tool and create a closed object - turn off image layer - change to Node tool - select your object - select Fill on toolbar and select a Colour - change to Gradient tab there - click to end point for apply gradient - select other type from list: nothing happened in Elliptical and Radial mode, Conical is wrong. - select None tab - click on Recent item on None tab - change to Gradient tab again, and select a type: this will working. If change to Linear, and select None tab and Recent, type will not working again... And I cannot change position from 0%. Nowhere vertical, horizontal or diagonal (maybe percent?) rotate/angle for fill...
  14. Hi, Can someone help me with this simple problem? So SHIFT-X toggles between a fill and a stroke. So if I have a solid fill, and no stroke, when I press SHIFT-X I then get a stroke but no fill. I get that. What I don't get is what if I want to set my default mode to be a solid fill with a stroke? I click the 'Synchronise defaults from this selection' button. And all looks fine. But when I then select my pen tool, it's just giving me a stroke with no fill. See example. Likewise, more often than not I want to set a fill with no stroke. So I draw a simple shape, fill it with whatever colour I want, select 'none' for stroke. Click the 'Synchronise defaults from this selection' button. All looks well on screen. I click once with the pen tool, then as soon as I click again, both revert to no stroke/no fill?! What's going on?
  15. Hi, I´m a total beginner and I just can´t combine this 3 lines into an area I could fill with color. They just don´t combine. Why is it?

  19. Affinity Photo is really amazing graphics designing software...But it really sucks when I work with color gradient & texture...Does anyone have any idea about how to use this type of rainbow gradient fill on text or any object in Affinity Photo v1.5...???
  20. In Illustrator you can offset an object to expand and contract it. I want to be able to expand some type that has been converted to cures so that it can be a mask. The only way I figured I could do this is to set a stroke to the expanse I want and then to expand the stroke. The problem is the stroke is still acting as if its part of the type instead of a separate object and there is no way I can figure out how to combined the type and the stroke to make a mask object.
  21. I have an image that I am trying to color using affinity designer I tried changing the fill color but that didn't work also I tried converting it to curves but that didn't work either can anyone help me please?
  22. IU'm converting from Photoshop and struggling to understand something - In the colour panel, there are 2 colour circles which appear to correspond to a 'fill' colour, and a 'stroke' colour - whereas in Photoshop they relate to Foreground and Background colours. Does Affinity Photo have a concept of Foreground and Background colour or not? In Photoshop I can create a gradient from the foreground colour to the background colour - how do I do the equilavent in Affinity Photo? I used the colour dropper tool to select 2 colours in a photo, but as soon as I switch to the gradient tool I don't seem to be able to use the colours I picked, as a white gradient fills the entire layer and I cannot find an option to go from Fill to Stroke colour.
  23. Well in Affinity theres one very important shortcut missing, which would improve working speed a lot. I Talk about the possibilty in the layers menue to strg+lmb klick on a layer mask and select the mask, but not to be able as in photoshop, to "shift"+"strg"+lmb. klick several masks or layer one after the other to select increadibly fast all the stuff you need and get a additive pixelselection.. of course as already discussed you could save the different masks in the channels tab, and ad them (this is by far slower then the shortcut approach) or, as a workaround, create a new pixellayer on top, strg+lmb klick the layer you want the pixelselection from in the layers tab, the new pixellayer stil selected and just press shift+f5. this would give you a new window to decide how to fill the selection.. Well.. is there a way to just fill in the frontcolor of your colors, or white or black without every time to tell the programm... yes. take the color.. just one shortcut without the need to confirm that realy you need the color.. would improve much the workaround.. thanks
  24. When two or more shapes are alligned (from anchor to anchor), and these shapes have no stroke, it results in a transparent edge instead of no edge. See Example. Each of the triangles here are perfectly alligned from point to point, which should leave no space between shapes. The stroke is set to no colour, and the weight set to none, so I would imagine that the 'fill' should take up 100% of each shape. However, it seems that the stroke (which shouldnt exist), stil takes up a fraction of the shape, and allows the background to show through ever so slightly. The obvious way to get around this is to slightly overlap each shape - as you can see, there are quite a lot in the above, so this would be impractical. Is there any obvious way to get around this? Apologies, this question has probably been asked before, but I was finding it dificult converting this question to a searchable term.
  25. I'm trying to change the fill and stroke on a vector I drew with a brush. I either can't edit it at all or I can only color in half. I'm totally new and learning as I go. I exported the original drawing as a PSD that preserved editability. rose1.psd rose pink.psd
