  1. 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
  2. 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!
  3. 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 smalle
  4. 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.
  5. 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 t
  6. 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 colo
  7. 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?
  8. Not sure if this is a bug, but...After selecting background of an image then using refine edges and pressing delete it leave some of the image partially transparent and unavailable to fully fill with the flood fill tool. see attachment. cant fill area.afphoto
  9. 1. I draw circle with stoke (inside) 2. I fill the circle 3. Result 4. How to fix it ?
  10. 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...???
  11. I have a photo that I outlined with the pen tool to attempt to clean up the lines. So, now I have my outlined created with the pen tool and I got rid of the background. How do I fill in my outline? I just want it to be filled in black. Attached is the file I am working on. Thanks, T10Pro new deer logo.afdesign
  12. Hi again, as I was importing some of my SVGs, I noticed some slight issues with their appearance in Affinity. So, I did some testing and found out what was causing these issues. I've created a separate file for each bug (14 in total). It should become clear by following the instructions below. If not, just let me know! Disclaimer: Importing the first file will (most likely) make Affinity crash. Please save your work progress before trying! Instructions: 1. Open the attached files in a web browser 2. Now import them into Affinity (Photo or Designer) 3. Compare both versions closely
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. 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 t
  16. 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,
  17. 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
  18. Hello all, Feeling dumbfounded at the moment, I've been editing this picture for quite a bit now, and i wanted to add a new fill layer after selecting my foreground but to my surprise it didn't work, tried it with a pixel layer then using the fill tool, still doesn't work. Tried with other pictures and it works just fine there I don't understand what's going on Thanks ^^ EDIT: it's not just fill, it's everything that doesn't work on this page anymore, except the previous adjustments i made, nothing seems to affect the image anymore
  19. Hi Ive just noticed that when clicking the double headed arrow in the colours or swatch palette the selected object also gets changed but when I use the keyboard shortcut X it changes it in the palette but not on the selected object? thanks Gary PS - currently going through the Work book and really enjoying it but on p104 it says this shortcut os is shift + X which doesn't do anything.
  20. It would be great to be able differentiate between the fill and stroke selector while using the Color Picker. Quite often I find myself applying a stroke color when I want a fill. Maybe a small cursor overlay or something would do the job.
  21. Having independent blend modes for stroke and fill would be really handy. For example, I recently discovered the Erase blendmode, which is a godsend for not needing to manually expand and boolean things. Something I like doing is to give stuff padding by expanding the shape, "bulging it" in all directions, and then cutting that out of what's beneath, giving a sort of cell shaded look, but as if the outline is the background color. Being able to have the Stroke have an Erase blendmode would make this extremely handy and powerful, and I can imagine using strokes in "add" or "screen" blendmode fo
  22. Hi, great program, great work, and I hope you can continue making it even better! I cannot seem to add noise to a pixel layer with a fill My Steps: Create document (I chose Web, custom, 4000x4000 pixels (but same with default web doc size)) Create pixel layer Choose fill tool Pick colour Click opacity/noise toggle Increase noise not possible Slider slides but resets back to zero. Other times it has moved and stayed in place but still does not change noise level. This is on both the top context menu or on the right fill menu tab.
  23. Hi, seems to me the Edit / Fill... Shift + F5 not working properly (the custom color/noise part). When I select this choice while being on Pixel layer and choose custom color by one click, and I do add some noise.... no noise is added...... Thanks Jindra P.S. Could you please also add a quick "Fill with 50% Grey" option as this is surely very often used Fill action :rolleyes:
  24. Hey. I have a shape in a document with a specific fill color (bright blue) with noise. In another document, I have a different document i have a shape that I would like to give the same fill color and also add noise. I filled the shape with the exact same color. Everything looks identical. However, as soon as I add noise, the color shifts towards green. Even if I drag the noise slider to zero again, the color shift stays. Any ideas? I am using Affinity Designer 1.4.1
  25. Hey everyone, I'm quite new to Affinity Designer and have come across the following issue: ​ ​I'm trying to fill different shapes with patterns. Since I haven't been able to find any preset geometric fill patterns that ship with Affinity, nor a pattern fill feature, I've resorted to: 1. Select the shape 2. Activate the Fill Tool 3. Change Fill Type to Bitmap ​4. Use an image texture to fill the shape However, when I ​CTRL + C​ on one shape and then CTRL + SHIFT + V​ on another shape in order to copy that fill, with the same orientation and scale, it seems like the bitmap/texture then get
