  1. Hi there. I'm wanting to start giving my drawing colour but not sure where to start. I think i need to join up some of the lines, but not sure what the most effective method is. I have pretty much drawn what i have seen using the pen tool, and not sure how to start adding colour. There are a few "open" lines which have not been closed. How would you tackle colouring this?
  2. See attached recording. File type and file location don’t make a difference. Any ideas? Best, Russell 79F3B8B8-A12B-4601-941C-A166A85F110B.MOV
  3. Hello ! I really appreciate using Affinity Photo for making illustrations, however there is something that ruins its potential when coloring a lineart. Every other pixel editing softwares I tried (Photoshop, Krita) allows the user to extend the fill selection in order to spill the color to the middle of the lineart pen strokes (for instance). I've attached a sample of the fill results made in Photo and in Krita, along with Krita's fill settings. The color is a different layer below the lineart layer. This pretty basic feature would increase a lot the speed of coloring simple flat
  4. Hi, I have a simple shape (attached) I'm trying to fill, but despite all the curves being joined it still fills as though they're individual curves. When I joined the last joint it all lit up as yellow, which I assume means it's one joined profile. I also tried several other methods, like drawing each as individual shaped and using 'Join Curves' but not matter what I do I cant get this shape to fill. I'm trying to make the transition from Illustrator to Affinity Designer but problems like this make the transition very difficult. I ended up using my old MAC version of illustrator to do it.
  5. In Affinity Photo 1.8.3.641, if you are creating vector shapes with a transparent color as the foreground and then switch to the Paint Brush Tool, the transparent primary color in the inkwell icon will switch to white, but the brush will retain the transparency from the previous mode, so when you try to paint, the brush will not paint white but be "off". You have to click on the small Transparency circle in the bottom left corner of the inkwell tool for it to display correctly. Display error is consistent on both the Tools Panel 2-column inkwell icon and the one in the Color Studio. Exa
  6. Changing a gradient type when using the Fill Tool adds huge amounts of the same entry, "Set fill type", to be added to the History panel. This is to the point that it will push everything else away, leaving only these repeated entries in the History panel, essentially denying you any way to undo your work. Steps to reproduce: Create or select an object With the Fill Tool drag across the object to create a simple gradient On the context bar at the bottom, scroll to another fill type, like conical Watch as the History panel get absolutely overwhelmed with the same e
  7. I am struggling to find the setting to remove the small crop icon on an image that is filled into a shape. The image is not visible as a second layer and the layer is ticked and not hidden
  8. Inverting a fill layer seems to make it transparent. I thought the fill colour would invert.
  9. Hello... fairly new to Affinity. I like it a lot. I checked the tutorials, and I could not figure out how to do this. I figured there are probably different methods, so I wanted some general help. I tried to upload the jpg, and it gave me a -200 error. So I uploaded the afphoto document instead. In this photograph of a red-winged starling in Cape Town, South Africa, there is a leaf from a palm tree in front of the bird. What can you recommend as the best way to remove this leaf, and fill in the area with the blackish color of the bird. You are welcome to download the document an
  10. Howdy folks - I seem to run into this enough to warrant asking how I should do it. I want to fill in the top and bottom segments of this object with a solid color (indicated by the squiggly lines). I changed the outside curve to red to indicate the way this was created. Is it possible to select those top four corner points and create a single object? Or do I simply have to draw the shape manually?
  11. I am designing something and i made this tree with the pencil tool i made each stroke separately and grouped them all together after connecting them then when i tried to fill it. The first image is what happen how do i just fill the inside of the tree?
  12. Hi there, Affinity Publisher is having troubles interpreting a certain kind of fill surface. Iam using Allplan (CAD-Software for architecture) and all Affinity programs cannot interpret these fillings. We use Allplan to Export PDF-Files which we then import into Affinity for layouting. Instead of a color gradient called "from the middle" in Allplan, all Affinity programs show a dark grey. Is there any fix? because we really like to use these kind of fillings. Picture 1 shows false Affinity interpretation. Picture 2 shows how it is shown correctly in Ac
  13. I'd like the inside the map outline to be yellow. How do I do that? I'm working in Designer.
  14. I searched the site and faq without luck. I have an outlined font that I want to fill the whitespace with a gradient. I tried converting the typed text to curves and it appears to have made a single bezier line through the entire glyph (take a C and put a line on the surrounding the inner continuing to the outer edge and then close the C to an O keeping the lines). So, it's treating the text strokes as fill-able but not the whitespace. The attached how do I fill outlineed font with a gradient.pdf shows it well Is there an way without converting to bitmaps (yuck)? Thanks❗️
  15. Hello all, I've just starting using Affinity designer (trail) and like it very much. I have a little problem though and I'm sure that when someone points out what I'm doing wrong I'll kick myself. I've applied a gradient to an object and now want to return it to a solid fill but I cant find a way of removing the gradient. If I create another fill and apply it always is set to gradient when I apply it the object. I've tried setting no fill creating a new fill then applying it but always its a gradient fill! I'm sure the solution is simple and obvious but I'm missing somethin
  16. Hi all. I've spent way more time than I should have trying to get a gradient fill to go vertically in Designer. I don't think I've ever before seen a graphics application that offered a gradient fill but lacked any way to control its angle. Even if there is a method buried somewhere in this application, it may as well not exist. It needs to be in the gradient-fill controls. Baffling.

  18. I am transitioning from InDesign to Affinity Publisher. I have an InDesign document that has text with a black stroke and green fill. The letters really pop! (I'm attaching a sample.) Is there any way to achieve this effect in Publisher?
  19. 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
  20. Hi - I've been tinkering with Publisher and want to leave the current program I use, but am stuck on what's probably a simple solution. I'm trying to fill a rectangle and want the fill to transition horizontally like in the attachment, but I can only get it to vertically, blue on left, red in middle, yellow on right. I'm sure there's something very simple I'm missing, but I can't figure it out. In the program I currently use, there's an "angle" adjust to rotate the fill to any orientation I want. Thanks!
  21. I was wondering at how I'd be able to recreate the content aware fill (on photoshop) shown in this video (at 1:45). Does affinity have something like this? I've tried using the inpainting brush tool, but could not really achieve a good result on a panorama I'm working on with AP (attached).
  22. Hello, an somebody tell me why when I try to fill a shape it fills outside of the lines? (Like in the image)
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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
