    Fill shape

    Hello, an somebody tell me why when I try to fill a shape it fills outside of the lines? (Like in the image)
  2. Hi, I cannot add a second style with the same fill and stroke colour to the 'styles'. I'm trying to save some styles to the styles menu. They have the same fill and stroke colours but they have a different dash length/pattern. So when I try to add a second one to the styles menu, it doesn't let me do that. I think AD sees this as a duplicate and therefor doesn't let me add it. Only when I change the the colour of it. Anyone out there who can help me out? Thanks
  3. Dear forum, I have an annyoing issue with using artboards in Affinity designer: In pixel mode, as well as in pdf exports, I get a very small, but noticeable white or light-coloured edge on my objects. This is only noticeable in affinity on zooms of 10000% but easily noticeable in pdfs on lower zoom levels (See scrawly annotated attachement). I already tried adjusting the contour, deselecting any effects, as well as playing around with edge or radius options. This for me makes artboards completely useless, as in print outputs (where I normally use them) this issue is fatal. I hope that anyone could suggest any hints! Thank you very much!
  4. Hi, I'm trying to fill a capital 'O' without filling in the middle of it. As seen in the attached screenshots. I found a post with the same issue, there they were told to select the individual curve layers rather than the group, and then change the fill mode in the layers menu to "Alternative (Even-Odd)". However, I tried this and it didn't seem to work. Is there something I'm doing wrong or something else that might work? Cheers
  5. After update to 1.7.2, Fill paint with transparent color doesn't work. (It works propery on 1.7.1, and this bug occurs on MacOS also.) I very often use this function, so I'm very discouraged. I degradee software version to 1.7.1 . I strongly want serif company to fix this bug.
  6. Four image pano, very long time to create pano, same long time to complete render, cropping, extremely slow, save, long spinning ball, finally saved.

  7. Forgive me if this has already been answered. I looked but couldn't find the answer. Is it possible to do a tileable fill with Affinity Photo? I've seen references to doing it in designer but not photo. I did a bitmap fill using the gradient tool but it doesn't tile the bitmap, it just extends the edges which is not very useful (for me anyway). Thanks
  8. In Affinity Publisher v1.7.1, cannot remove or change rectangle fill after converting to text frame — there is no UI to do this, and the fill is permanent. Have to delete and recreate the work. Steps: 1) Select rectangle tool and draw a rectangle, 2) In the colour palette, set a noticeable fill colour, 3) Choose Layer > Convert to Text Frame, 4) adjust the same controls that were used in step 2 to choose a fill colour. Result: the fill colour of the box no longer changes (the newly selected colour is applied to text added). 30mins search and experimentation did not yield any place in the UI that would allow the rectangle fill to be changed (if its present but well hidden, then this is also a UI bug). Expected: either a) rectangle fill is removed when converted to text frame, or b) all colour selection palettes allow target for change within text frame to be selected, out of text (selection) or frame itself. (Presumed same for all types of shape, and for stroke as well.)
  9. Not entirely sure how I activated this, does anyone know how to deactivate it? I’m getting a fill behind my text that blocks other layers
  10. I apologise if I'm missing something obvious, I've searched through the Affinity Photo online manual and the help forum and not found anything. Every graphics app I've used until Affinity has supported using multiple layers to constrain fills from the flood fill (paint bucket) tool - think of scanning in a line drawing, putting it on an upper layer, setting to multiply and using the line art to constrain fills on a layer or layers below. (I'm talking all pixel layers, BTW, no vector stuff). The flood fill tool has a control for tolerance and toggle for non/contiguous but no control to respond to single or multiple layers. Is there another way of doing this or is the feature not yet present?
  11. I finally give up. How do you stroke something? I drew a rectangle with the marquee tool and want to stroke that line. I do it all the time in Photoshop, but I cannot find a way to do it in Affinity. I also can't find any instructions or tutorials online. There seems to be help for what to do with the stroke after you have it, but I need to create it in the first place. I have the same question for filling the selection. thank you
  12. Hi all, I'm considering buying Designer but one thing that I can't find is if there is a way to fill an object using vector or patterns. I only find gradients and bitmap. I know we can duplicate an object to create hand made pattern but I can't then edit the repetitions like if is a bitmap fill. Cheers, Juan
  13. Sorry if it's duplicate post. It would be nice to have a pattern fill feature with a few patterns to start with instead of gradient tool and bitmap fill. Also quickly create patterns by drawing a square on your shapes and save them to swatch library. Or..at least if you save gradient fill with a bitmap image, and reapply that fill on another shape to get the same size of the pattern. See the image, they all get a different size.
  14. I'm just starting out in Affinity Designer for iPad, and I'm trying to perform a pretty simple fill operation on this eye that I've drawn (see attached). I come from an Illustrator background and it's incredibly simple to do in there. Basically, I've drawn the outer shape of the eye, and added a line through it. I'd like to fill in below that dividing line with one color, and use white above it (as you'd expect for an eye). The problem is, I can't seem to fill in the eye color without creating another complete shape that overlaps the outer shape along the bottom and left sides of the eye. I can work around it like that, but it's tedious and would definitely end up taking forever on more elaborate illustrations. Surely there's some way to fill in color without completely overlapping lines all the time, right?
  15. At my current job we use Corel Draw in our graphic design department. I have switched to Affinity Designer and Photo for my personal work and these are my 5 features I use very often in Corel that I would love to see added. 1. Boundary Tool - Have a print/cut Roland printer and this tool is essential when creating a cut line around multiple objects. 2. Envelope Tool - Use this quite often for text effects. Converting to curves and manipulating from there works alright but Corel leaves the enveloped object still as text and can be still edited. 3. Flood Fill Tool - I'm able to replicate this using boolean operations but involves way more steps and occasionally will end up with odd quirks and unwanted results. 4. Blend Tool - I believe I have seen this is coming on the roadmap so hopefully soon 5. Raster to Vector Tracing - Also seen this is coming. Currently using Inkscape for this feature and then exporting/importing into Designer All this being said Designer is still one of the best applications I have used. How great this application already is has me very excited for future updates and enhancements.
  16. See attached recording. File type and file location don’t make a difference. Any ideas? Best, Russell 79F3B8B8-A12B-4601-941C-A166A85F110B.MOV
  17. As the thread title implies, the colorpicker behaves strange when trying to pick up a color near it's invokation from a fill color panel. It mostly refuses there then to pick up a color under the loupe, see here ... BTW, AFAI have seen this odd behavior is equally among all tools of the Affinity line!
  18. With the Pen tool, go ahead and create a 5-sided star (see star_empty_center.png). You see the pentagon in the center being empty. What I want is for the center to be filled (see star_filled_center.png). => My current "workaround": duplicate the (star) shape select both shapes and apply boolean "Divide" to segregate the 5 triangles with Node Tool: for each triangle, break and remove the line that belongs to the pentagon select all triangles and apply "Join curves" It's cumbersome, but it works. My question: is there any simple way / an option to tell AD (before or after drawing the curve) to fill any overlapping areas to make it look solid ?
  19. I'm getting reproducible behavior with this sequence: Make a selection on pixel layer>Edit>Fill>Deselect When I deselect, the unselected part from the original selection also fills, making the whole layer a solid color. See screen captures for the before and after. You can even see the selection is active in the before image. I found that this also happens when I use the keyboard shortcut SHIFT+F5 but it doesn't happen if I fill using the fill tool (paintbucket). I've been experiencing this for a while now. I think I noticed it even before I installed Mojave on my late 2015 iMac, but definitely ever since I installed Mojave.
  20. The image below shows some curves I drew with the pen tool. How would I go about filling in the space in between each curve with a different colour? Here is an example of what I need: All help is appreciated. Thanks, Dan
  21. Hello! I prepared new 25 styles for A-Designer, A-Photo and A-Publisher Regards Designia Styles 2.afstyles
  22. I am having an issue with the fill function not behaving as expected on a selection in Affinity Photo on the Mac. I am trying to fill an area of an image in white. Please see attached screenshots of the problem: 1. Selection 2. Preview of fill in white (looks fine) 3. End result of fill (does not look fine) 4. End of result of fill with the selected area deselected. As you can see the fill along the top edge of the selected area is not coming out as expected or indeed previewed and is creating a kind of artifact/rough edge. This is undesirable. I have tried messing about with the refine options of the selection including feathering etc but have been unable to improve the situation as the preview here also looks fine. Additionally I have tried to just paint the selection in white however the same issue still arises. This is not a one off either, this is happening in different areas with different selections. I am very new to Affinity Photo admittedly and am just getting started but have searched the web and been unable to find anything specifically related to this problem. I would be grateful for any help as it is driving me nuts or to know if this is in fact a bug. Many thanks

    Bitmap Fill

    Hi, I'm having a problem with bitmap fill. It doesn't work. When I import a seamless pattern (or any pattern), the edges of the pattern extend into lines as soon as I fiddle with the settings. Hard to explain -- see attachment, where I'm trying to fill the floor with a wood pattern. Is this a known bug? Or is there a workaround? I'm using latest Mac OS, with Affinity products updated by iTunes, currently on the latest build. By the way, this hasn't always been an issue. Bitmap fill used to work fine on this same computer, maybe a year back. I'm missing this feature. Cheers.
  24. The numerical transparency values for the fill in the table are missing...
  25. 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.
