  1. I'm trying to create a background, solid colour, layer with a colour to match one in the image. I am running into an odd problem because I don't know AP well enough yet. I use the I short cut key to pick the colour (rye dropper) and that shows correctly as the foreground colour But when I fill the new pixel layer, the fill colour is the complementary colour. It seems that the shortcut I key has somehow changed the fill colour to the Inverse colour? Where did I goof? Jim
  2. I apologize if this is a common topic, but I searched and none of the solutions have worked. I made a shape using the pen tool, and when I try to fill it, it ends up doing this (see photo). The photo is zoomed in because I can't show the entire project yet, but that's not important. Why does it do this and how can I fill the shape? I don't know why there's straight lines going through the shape, I didn't put them there... they appeared when I tried to fill the entire shape. Any advice please? This is a recurring issue and it's really preventing me from moving forward. Thanks!
  3. Procedural workflow has and is growing and becoming a large driving force in content creation. Something I always knew would be make things very quick to iterate or change, and also keep things consistent and simple, would be referenced colors. So maybe your documents has a palette with named slots, and when you go to select a fill/stroke color, you can optionally select one of these named slots. Other fills or strokes can reference this same slot. Then if you decide you want to change colors later, you simple adjust this palette and every object using those slots gets updated. To extend this concept, it could almost be like symbols but for object appearance where you can have synchronized styles, that way all the parameters are shared, like stroke width, profile, etc.
  4. Can some one tell me what the difference is between a fill layer and a pixel layer, if there is a difference? The one difference that I know of is that when a fill layer is used you can continue to edit a gradient but on a pixel layer you can't. cheers, Jason
  5. Hello everyone! I've got another feature request: Could you enhance "Set Fill to Black and White"'s (in Preferences -> Keyboard shortcuts -> Miscellaneous) functionality? Right now, it just sets the colors to black and white. If I remember correctly, in Photoshop, it also automatically sets the currently selected color to the default one, which is black. This can be very useful, especially when all the UI is hidden. Because then you always know what color will be selected when you press the shortcut for "Set Fill to Black and White". So if you need white, you can just click D (my shortcut for "Set Fill to Black and White"), then X. Best wishes, Shu
  6. Currently, if you click on an empty (hollow, unfilled) area that's surrounded by an object, Designer will select that object. This is frequently (perhaps even usually) not what you want, especially since there can be numerous objects surrounding the empty area (thus making the selection uselessly ambiguous anyway). Currently in Designer you have to use the Option key to cycle through ALL overlapping objects. That is a deal-breaker. I find it incredible that this is deemed an acceptable way to work. How many illustrations don't have objects depicted within the boundaries of other objects? In the attached example, I can't select the blue line by clicking on it, even though nothing's covering it. Please fix this.
  7. Hi. I'm doing some isometric stuff with the grid tool on Affinity Designer and when I fill the shapes it leaves very small white gaps between the shapes. They even print on to .jpeg images when exported. How do I get rid of them? I have the snap to grid-option selected in the Grid Manager tool. Thanks!
  8. Howdy folks, I'm trying to fill a a vector image that was created with the pen tool and I'm having some difficulty finding a way to color it in. I don't fully understand this pixel persona, but I've tried both rasterising and using pixel brushes and using the vector brushes, but am not getting a good result. Right now it's okay if it's just one color, though I'd like to figure out how to shade as well. Can anyone provide some guidance on this? Attached is the file I'm working with. Thanks in advance! drinking buddies v4.afdesign
  9. Hello there, I work in AD. The software is great, thanks for that. I need to export to PDF or SVG or EPS, does not matter to me ... including layers, that I could open the file in Adobe Illustrator and could see the layers. I was trying to find out on affinity forum, but I was not successful. Is there a way to do that please? Unfortunately, exporting to PDF does not do the job. Nothing is rasterized and after opening in illustrator there is just one layer instead of 3 created in AD. And what more, there are separated objects, the ones with fill and the ones with strokes. I mean, in AD it is an object with fill and stroke and after exporting to PDF and opening in AI these are two different objects, one with stroke and one with fill. I don't know why is that ? Thanks for help. I attached a file. 1100235_58_ultra_terno.afdesign
  10. Let’s say I have an object with a fill and border, both have the same color but the border’s lightness is 10 points lower than the fill’s. I would like to change the color/hue/lightness of the fill and have the border color/hue/lightness change with it while keeping the lightness at the same distance from each other. Sounds complicated, I hope you understand what I mean. Is there a way to achieve this?
  11. I draw two triangles with the Pen Tool. they intersect each other. How can I fill the intersection region with a color? I've tried the Fill Tool with no success.
  12. Can we have a keyboard shortcut key that applies a colour fill to a selection in AP as in Photoshop. In order to fill a selection in Photoshop you use "shift/delete and this applies the selected colour to that selection. This would enhance the user experience and workflow of AP. By the way i'm a Mac OS user. Thanks
  13. I've been looking at some development of a very impressive auto-fill filter for lineart on G'mic and thought it would be something the Affinity devs might be interested in. Basically, it analyses artwork with an algorithm to determine contours and shape closures which can then be filled as a base for painting. It speeds up a monotonous colour blocking step of painting. Not a priority feature at the moment, but I thought it would be an amazing addition for illustrators working with raster imagery. I'm sure affinity could simplify the tool even more for usability. I've posted two videos that demonstrate how it works. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-3aBQeuBc4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rl76PJZTuio
  14. I have a piece of graphics with “Winding” fill mode. When I convert it to an Object it changes the fill mode to “Alternate”. Fill mode can not be changed on Objects either.
  15. When I do Document / Fill, the color is applied to the whole layer. How to protect alpha?
  16. Currently, The Edit / Fill command fills up the entire layer. It would be very handy to have the option to protect the alpha in order to fill in only the content of the layer. There's a discussion here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/30465-fill-protecting-alpha/
  17. Newbie question... was trying to define an area and then fill it. Somehow I defined an area that now shows "running dashes" (for lack of a more accurate description) and I CANNOT DELETE/REMOVE this area from my document. Appreciate the help. (first couple of days with Affinity Designer!)

    Fill menu slow

    Hi guys, one thing I noticed on the Fill/Stroke tab, they get stuck, open up slowly or scrolling down the Pantone palettes is very sluggish and slow. Any way to solve this? :)
  19. You can not change the color of fill tool, when trying to fill pixel layer with Solid Color.
  20. How do I get rid of the line inside of my objects that separates my outline from the filled area? What am I doing wrong? Thanks for the help! MOOP.tiff
  21. Is it possible to assign separate blend modes for an object stroke and fill with Affinity Designer? For instance I'd like to apply a blend mode of Multiply to the black fill of a rectangle but want to leave the white stroke color as normal. I have this same question for opacities as well. I ask because I'm able to do this in Illustrator and use it all the time. If there is another way of approaching this in Designer w/o having to duplicate the object (one for fill and one for stroke), please enlighten. Thanks!
  22. Web developer here, bought Affinity Designer in hopes of switching off Adobe completely. The app was great, got the job done, then I go to export the icon as an SVG and... it saves the color black as "fill:#000". Why Affinity why? :( It should save the color black with no fill tag at all, which will still appear as black, but lets web developers like me then alter the color dynamically via CSS. svg { fill: #888; } Am I hopefully just missing this setting somewhere? Kinda breaks the whole process of making svg icons. I don't want to have to use some important rule or something to overrule such a silly mistake.
  23. Hello, Ronnie McBride created a really nice rope brush for me and I am wondering if it's possible to apply a fill to the brush shape, not the path which the brush follows? The image I am working on now is attached and what I am trying to do is fill the rope shape with a fill. I've tried a few things but it seems the brush pattern isn't recognized as a shape to fill? The only way I found I could add a fill is to rasterize the path with the rope brush applied.. is that the answer?
  24. Is there a way to use the transparency tool to only apply on the fill or just the stroke of the object… I cannot seem to find a checkbox or setting for this to only affect a particular attribute. Thanks!
  25. It would be a very useful feature to copy the features of a text , color type, size and color contour like Corel Draw funcion.
