  1. Affinity Hilfslinien.mov Hello, the vertical guideline snaps perfect to the black line.. but the horizontal guideline doesn't. Any ideas why? - Kevin
  2. Hi all, is it possible to show guides on all artboards at once. Not only on the selected artboard? And it it possible to place one horizontal guide over several artboards, like you can do in Illustrator. See attachment for further explanation. Thanks for helping nar
  3. Hi all, is it possible to copy and paste guides on the exact same position on another artboard? Like I am used to in Illustrator? Thanks for your help nar
  4. Hello I am working on a series of product images. These images will be displayed side by side in a web shop. The finished images are simple composites made up of two separate images. I want to make each of the finished images have the same proportion and product positions. I am using guides to do this. Rather than go through the process of setting up guides for each of the different product documents, is there a way I can copy and paste guides from one document to another? Cheers
  5. Can I copy guides from on master page to another in Affinity Publisher? It appears that I cannot select more than one guide setting (number) in Guide Manager to copy/paste my guides from one master page to another. It would be great if one could select the all to copy/paste or use the CMD key (Mac) to select from the guide numbers.
  6. I made a lot of Guides to a master pages and realised later, I could also use them on another, already existing Master Page. Didn't find a way to copy & paste them (or transfer by another method). Appreciate any help.
  7. Would be great to be able to add margins to multiple artboards at the same time. Same with guides and have the guides move with the artboard. Thanks!
  8. At some point when adding a new guide, all the guides disappear. I tried to "Show Guides" (Ctrl+;) again, but no success. You can see the guides on the ruler area, but not on the work area. Had to close the application and open it again to make it work. Very annoying! I don't remember having this problem before last update. Running Affinity Designer version 1.9.0.932 Windows 10 Pro v.10.0.19042 Build 19042
  9. I've noticed a strange bug when using guides. Please see the attached .afdesign file. I dragged from the top ruler to create a horizontal guide on the page. I then used the 'create artboard' button which replaced my page with an identically sized artboard. I then duplicated that artboard. I decided I no longer wanted the horizontal guide, so I dragged it back up the the ruler to remove from the page. When I go to View > Guides Manager it shows no guides on the page. Same thing if I select each artboard and check the Guides Manager. However, if I click and drag a selection square anywhere on an empty part of the page, my removed guide shows up on the screen! (see screenshot). list-tick.afdesign
  10. In a document that has multiple guides for various texts and/or objects, the guides appear in their position order which is already helpful. However, the only way to know what guide goes with what objects or texts is to actually move the guide since when I click on the guide it is not highlighted in the Guide Manger. It appears that one must remember what guide position number goes with what set of objects or texts, and when there are many guide that becomes quite a challenge.. Perhaps it is expecting too much, but is there any way that the user could name each guide or set of guides in order to identify it for quick reference, such as your light print reminders in the layer panel telling us what the layer is following the name we can give to the layer? It would also be helpful to be able to sort layers according to their use on the page. Just dreaming....

  12. Hi there, i'm currently trying to set new guides on an existing document with already loads of artboards (UX design). I've always been able to set my guides on the first artboard and go on without having to set it back afterwards. But today i need to set 2 new guides on every artboards and as i am using "Guides Manager" and setting guides on all artboards at once, everything i tried to achieve this has been a failure. I've tried first by selecting one artboard, nope. All artboards selected, no either. No artboard at all, nah. And i've been looking for a button like "set on all artboards" or something like it. But can't find anything. So my question is, is there something i can do to achieve my goal, or do i need to do it all by hand one at a time? If not existing yet, is it to be added in future update? If not can it be added to the roadmap ? Thanks, looking to your answers. Ben
  13. I feel like this is a dumb question, but I made some document guides by dragging over from the rulers, and now I can't seem to figure out how to delete them. :wacko: How do I do this quick and easy?
  14. ...First thing I used to do when I'm designing a new logo for example (and I'm sure I'm not alone here) is to create a big artboard and then draw multiple ideas along it. Now imagine, every time I need to delete a guide, I must zoom out, and drag the guide outside of the artboard!? ...or, find it in guides manager window (In which btw, the desired guide is not even highlighted. We must move it to know which one we need to delete). Why we cannot just use the DELETE key directly in the artboard?! Another useful thing, is the option to convert a vector to a guide...
  15. Trying to drag out guides to snap to a curve's nodes but AD won't snap.
  16. Hello everybody, I was wondering if there is an function, short cut in AD to create guides from shapes. Like cmd+5 in illustrator. Thanks in advance!
  17. Using iPad Pro + Apple Pencil 2019 Once I have my guides set, I cannot drag them or move them at all. It appears as if they are locked - any help greatly appreciated!
  18. I'm trying to snap a guide to exactly 30 cm using the ruler. Looking in the snap settings, nothing suggests itself as a means to do so Q: Is it possible to set snap settings so placing guides will snap to the ruler when visible? Q: If not, how do you approach it?
  19. According to the help you activate guides (context menu pops up ✅)... Then tap the guide... 🤔 .... should it change to a dotted red line? Can’t seem to drag it at all. The Lock Guides is not active. I’ve tried a tap-drag, a tap then drag, a long tap, a double tap... nothing. No visual feedback, no response at all. Can’t see anything in the Layers studio (I’ve unlocked them all to cover that off). What am I missing, thanks?
  20. There seems to be two dominant ways of thinking about columns: Column guides (in View --> Guides Manager) and text frame columns (View-->Studio-->Text Frame-->Columns). As someone relatively new to DTP, what are the upsides & downsides of both approaches? I've inherited a doc that lives with Column guides and I'm inclined to switch things over to Text frame columns as it removes a lot of text frame linking ... but before I do so, it would be good to hear from seasoned hands on the pros and cons of doing so.
  21. Hey All! I create a Magazine using AP. In there I have set up my canvas 42.5 inches, by 66" long. I then set up Guides every 8.5" on the Hor. and 11" on the Vert. I need to be able to export along those guides each at the appropriate guide size 8.5" at the 300DPI and CMYK/8 to sent to my Print lab. TIA SurJones :)
  22. How to print non-digital paintings. How to prepare your painting for print in the correct size, and for web. This Affinity Photo tutorial video shows how to put the photo back into correct perspective and size it for print. Imagine you just finished an oil painting and you want to digitize it so you can sell prints, place on the web, or submit your work to a gallery. Taking a photo of it on the wall or on an easel distorts the image. This video shows how to correct the distortion and size it correctly. https://youtu.be/BEMNW8PewIs
  23. Hi, Just want to clarify if what I've read in other posts is still current. Do guides, the ones you drag out of the rulers, not work as snapping targets for the brushes? I've created a brush, it's an image brush, which stamps out a little image, it has a rotation jitter of 100% so as I draw with it, the image spins around, and it has both a size jitter, and is pressure sensitive for scale with my tablet. I want to draw a square (or indeed a rectangle), whose proportions are exact, but whose edge has all the randomness generated by freehanding the brush pressure. In Photoshop, all the way back to CS5, all I'd have to do is pull out the guides for the rectangle or square shape, and then draw roughly over them, the brush would track true to the guide, and I could concentrate on using pressure to work the brush size. What's the solution to achieve this in AP? Thanks.
  24. Greetings, I think we need to have an overlay while editing the footage in the edit screen. This would allow us to know where the center of the frame is at all time, that that would help us with tracking subjects on the video also on that now adding a tracking feature would be amazing! (DIY til this is added is me putting some tape with a bread crumb on it 😆)
  25. Im laying out a photo book using Designer. There are potentially 100 pages, Is there a way to re-arrange the placement of art boards into a grid matrix instead of the endless left to right scroll? I find the grid layout to be a lot easier to work with and visualize the final product. Can artboards be rearranged? When working on a project like this sometimes I want to swap page 10 with page 35 for example, Is there a way to drag and drop to rearrange the artboard order? Guides, setting up guides that are the same for every artboard is a bit daunting with the current method, I have to select the precise location for every artboard. Is there a way to place guides at the same locations on all my artboards? Thanks for the help or consideration of adding these features to the artboard functionality.
