  1. Hello, I have searched well in the ipad affinity designer application and on the internet, I can't find the option to display a grid, I think I have that on the mac version there is a possibility to display a grid, but if it also exists on ipad, I didn't find it. Thank you in advance for your help.
  2. This is something I have noticed in plenty of software over the years, but I'm posting here because I'm currently having this issue with Affinity Designer (desktop). See attached image at full resolution for an example. I am making a lot of tiled patterns that need to connect seamlessly. I create them with a grid and am careful to snap my points to the grid perfectly. The coordinates in the info panel confirm this. Yet my shapes do not always join and I can see the background between the hairline gaps that should not exist. Why does this happen and is there anything I can do to fix it? (I have been moving my points to ensure they overlap in the final product, but I consider this a hack; if I want to continue working on a pattern I then have to snap all of the points back into place manually.) Notes: As you can see in my attachment, sometimes the shapes DO connect seamlessly. There doesn't seem to be any reason why some places have the gap and others don't. This isn't a factor of zooming. I can zoom right out and still see the hairline gaps. This isn't just a AD display issue. I am exporting these as raster files and the gaps are still there in the finished product. Another side effect of this is when I Boolean join my shapes, they often don't add together nicely. This is actually really annoying.
  3. Hi there! This is my second attempt to Affinity Designer and I can't find the way to make the handels of a curve to snap to the grid. Is there any way? And a second question: how do I change the size of grid. If I zoom in the grid grows, but couldn't find the panel to change the grid, if there is one. Thanks in advance Iván
  4. Without any serious vectordrawing app for the Ipad available, I’ve been waiting for Designer for iPad. When the release was announced yesterday I immediately bought my copy and started looking around to get a feel. I’ve been trying the triangular grids, and am not able to snap at them. When at one zoomlevel a point seems to be close to the gridpoint, after zooming in or out the same point is far away from the same gridpoint. See attached images. It looks like the displayed grid is some kind of approximation, and not exact. When zooming in or out I see the grid moving. I’ve tried with millimeters and points as units, with the same results. Triangular grid doesn’t stay in place and I can’t snap exactly to gridpoints. Using a normal square grids seems to be working perfectly, but for some drawings the triangular grid is very helpfull, if it would work well. Am I doing something wrong, or missing something? One other remark about the UI: In the snapping (and other) options, it’s not really clear when an option is toggled on or off. The white ‘off’ position is brighter than the blue ‘on’ position, making it easy for wrong interpretations and making me constantly re-check. I’ll get used to it, but it might help users if there’s an unmistakable distinction between the on and off positions.
  5. Hey everyone, hope that you are well. I have a personal blog where I like to create pixel art. Still learning but yeah, I'm very comfortable with Affinity Designer for my normal vector work so I decided to give it a try for raster images. The thing is: the cursor is driving me nuts! Whenever I increase brush size (2px and up) the "preview" pixel that is going to be painted is displayed top left of the cursor. This video may help illustrate what I'm talking about https://screencast.com/t/k8yET7ijH Is this normal or the expected way for the tool to work? I'm using square brushes.
  6. serait-il possible de retrouver l'outil "grille déformante" comme dans Page Plus. Il manque aussi dans Affinity Designer
  7. So when setting the gutter for a grid, the behaviour for the first and second axis grids are different. For the first axis, the gutter is not set on the origin side, but for the second axis, it is. I attached a screenshot for clarification: I'm using Metal instead of OpenGL since it was glitchy.
  8. It would be nice if we could use percentage values in the grid manager. That way, if an artboard is resized, the grid resizes with it.
  9. I am trying to make a custom grid in Affinity Designer. The measurements are important :6 pixels wide evenly along the x axis. The y axis requires a bit more work: 6 pixels, 8 pixels, 6 pixels, 6 pixels, 8 pixels, 6 pixels ... and so on. The grid manager lets me go so far. In order to get the 6 pixels, I actually make the vertical spacing 12, and add in a divider. I have to add a 8 pixel gutter. It looks right, but it fails to line up. Here is my grid, and you’ll see that the drawing tool locks somewhere where it shouldn’t. And again: You’ll also notice that the first row at the top on the grid isn’t even zeroed (the origin is correctly set). The yellow dot indicates where the pen tool is pointing, BTW. So, if I draw some shapes using grid snapping, I get this: Which isn’t what I want. So, I end up having to use guides to create the grid I actually want, which causes more hassle (and is very longwinded and tedious to set up). In order to get spot on positioning, I have to use the guides manager to place the guides at exact locations. Guides clearly don’t do sub-divisions, so I can’t clearly see how each 12x20 block is split up. So, the questions are: 1 - Is this a bug? Why is the grid not snapping correctly? How can I make it so that the tools snap to the lines, and nothing else? I’ve used Snap Manager to only set snap to grid on. 2 - How can I create an irregular grid spacing without resorting to using guttering? 3 - How can I get the grid to start to coordinates 0,0? Right now, it looks like I’m losing top left positioning by about 2 or 3 pixels vertically? Thanks.

    Grids are Super Glitchy

    When I turn on the grid, it doesn't show up on some artboards. However, when I click on the title of an artboard, it shows up, but then the grid disappears everywhere else. To make it worse, when I go to select or move an element within that artboard, the grid disappears again. I'm not sure if this is just something specific to my system, so I've included the file I encountered the bugs on here. Now, how often do you guys release bug fixes? It seems like there are many existing bugs that haven't been resolved for a very long time. Perhaps you guys should focus more on stability than new features? Or just release more incremental updates focused on bug fixes instead of putting everything into one big release. Design Practice.afdesign
  11. The current possibility to set the origin of the Grid and Ruler is great - thank you. But would it be possible to allow a quick and easy setting of the origin according to the set Margins? For example, at define margins in document settings, check the separate checkboxes "Set Grid / Ruler origin to margin".
  12. Something that is missing from Adobe Illustrator, and would be good in Affinity Designer are Technical Illustration Tools:- Isometric Grid, allowing constraint along 30º as well as vertical Isometric elipses (35º Elipses, with minor axis constrained to Grid Axis) Ability to join circles and ellipses with a tangent line tool, connecting one circle to another with a line. Ability to delete line or curve up to another intersecting line / lines / curves with a key stroke. 1 Draw a line or curve, 2 Draw two additional lines / curves, both overlapping original at different locations, 3 Select the middle part of the first line / curve 4 Press a key to delete the part of the line / curve up to each of the intersecting lines curves. 5 Option to select multiple lines / curves and perform this to all of them at the same time would be living the dream :-) Thanks Gaz 3dtp Ltd
  13. I want to work using a dimetric grid with the "Create plane set" option checked however I can't figure out what spacing is required to get the grid lines to intersect on the different plane sets. Screengrab attached to illustrate what I'm talking about. Absolutely love the way the grids/plane sets work for isometric and really hope it's possible to find the formula to get it to behave with non-isometric projections.
  14. I don't know if there is a reason this isn't possible or if I am missing something, but I can't get the plane set of any grid type but isometric to align with each other. When I make an isometric projection of a cube every plane of the grid just aligns and all the faces of the cube can join like this: But when I make a dimetric projection the planes don't align with each other and the faces of the cube can't align with the grid: I know I can just join the faces together anyway, but then the cube wouldn't align with the whole plane set. I don't know if this is possible, but I think a solution would be to shift the plane consisting of the first and up axis, and the plane consisting of the second and up axis down or up to align with the plane consisting of the first and second axis. I also found this topic about the same problem, but the solution given there is to alter the spacing of the up axis instead of shifting the whole plane. This would also alter the proportions:
  15. Hello, first off: wow, this app evolves quite quickly! Kudos to the dev-team. I always work with grids, so I was wondering why it doesn't appear on all pages? Maybe I’m doing something wrong? Screenshot show page 1 & 2 — but the grid only shows on page 1. Made a new document, same problem… kind regards! Benjamin
  16. Hi everyone, There is a bug in AD 1.5.1.43 (and probably earlier versions) in which when choosing the Pixel preview mode on the top toolbar the artboard background and bounds slides off by a large amount. This offset affects slices in the export persona as well. It makes it pretty much impossible to work on pixel-perfect images as the Export persona will offset the artboard randomly too. Please view the attached file, Thank you.
  17. Publisher 1.7.0.145 Launch Publisher Create a new document from the default settings Baseline Grid Manager > enable Use Baseline Grid Snapping Manager > enable Snap to baseline grid Save your blank document Quit Publisher Reopen Publisher by double-clicking the test document saved a moment ago The Snap to baseline grid option has been turned back off, although the other settings remain as they were previously. It doesn't seem to matter if you use View > Snapping Manager, or the Snapping controller in the toolbar across the top of the workspace.
  18. Hi dear reader, When trying to use ”grid” in one of the affinity apps they are only showing in the bottom left corner. And when moving the document the grid moves slower. I can obviously draw my own grid. I think this is a serious bug
  19. Hi, I would love you to consider adding a Phi Grid as an additional option to the existing cropping overlays. As you probably know, it is based on the Golden Mean just like the Golden Spiral but I find it more useful than the later for landscapes and other types of images. Thanks for all the outstanding work you are doing!
  20. I began a new file with a blank artboard that had no grid lines. Next, I created a second artboard, used the Grid and Axis Manager to set up the grid I needed, and added some lines to that artboard. My next step was to create a copy of the second artboard, which appeared correctly with the grid I had established and the lines I had drawn. I renamed the second and third arboards, and then decided that I wasn't going to use the first artboard, which was still blank and without grid lines. When I deleted that first artboard, a grid suddenly appeared over both of the remaining artboards AND the entire workspace, and this universal grid did NOT have the properties I had set earlier - those were entirely lost. I had to go back and set up the grid properties all over again. Am I correct that this was a bug, or is this an expected outcome for some reason that I'm not aware of yet? Thank you for your work - I have used and loved your software for many years! Affinity Designer v. 1.5.2.58 on Windows 10 Home
  21. In both the Print and Web device documents I am unable to set the Grid Spacing above .853. I am using Affinity Designer on the iPad and it seems that Affinity Photo on the iPad has the same problem. I tried it on the desktop version of Affinity Designer and can set the Spacing to 2.667 inches, so it appears this is a defect in the iPad version. Since the iPad version does not have the Ruler feature, I was trying to use the Grid to show 1-inch squares divided into 1/8" squares.
  22. Hi, I'm very new to the Affinity tools and to graphics design. For several of my trainings I want to make an overview of subjects covered, like for example this grid: https://www.istqb.org/images/advanced-level-automation-engineer.png I could make it myself in Excel, but this is quite bland and not in the colors of my preference I would like to be able to create such a grid, with colors of my choice and with some nice effects that make it look nicer. However, I have absolutely no idea on how to start that. Can sombody elaborate which steps I would need to investigate and learn to be able to create a nice grid?
  23. When i set up a new document in designer iPad , no matter what size , the grid is always smaller by almost a third. than the page size. how do you get the page size and the grid size to be the same. Also can you set a master page so you don't have to set up a new page every time with the same settings that i always use? 12.9 Ipad Pro running IOS 12 and affinity Designer 1.6.2.42
  24. For the Baseline Grid Manager, there is the option to start the baseline relative to 'Top of Spread', 'Top of Page', or 'Top of Margin'. I have it set to top of margin, which should start it at the start of my margin (as it goes in the ID example, in orange). However, it still starts it at the top of the page (Publisher example in purple).
  25. Hallo, ihr leistet tolle Arbeit bei Affinity. Ich habe gerne in der BETA-Version getestet und gestöbert. Meiner Meinung nach lässt sich jedoch ein Gestaltungsraster nicht so leicht erstellen, wie man es von anderen Programmen her kennt. Über den "Grid and Axis Manager" kann man tolle Gestaltungsraster erstellen lassen, jedoch kann ich ihm nicht sagen, wo er z.B. die erste Rasterzelle starten soll. Es wäre sehr hilfreich, wenn man das Gestaltungsraster in den Satzspiegel (Ränder) legen könnte oder einen Startpunkt für die erste Rasterzelle angeben könnte. Sorry for my englisch Hello, you do a great job at Affinity. I liked testing and browsing in the BETA version. In my opinion, a design grid can not be created as easily as it is known from other programs. The "Grid and Axis Manager" can be used to create great design grids, but I can not tell him where the first grid cell should start. It would be very helpful if I could put the design grid in the type area (margins) or specify a starting point for the first grid cell.
