  1. Hello everyone this is my first post. I sincerely hope it's the right place/section… I also made a search on forums but I'm not sure to find the answer to my problem.... So, I’m not a pro in graphics, but I use Affinity Designer for a while now; I use it both for prototype software GUIs, and for print projects. When I do a print project, usually is for an indie music label I collaborate with: I download the template PDF file from print company website, I open it in AD, and I work on it.. I export… etc. I already did this several times. Now, I’m working on a new music release, but it looks like now AD opens the PDF without showing the crop marks and bleed. I’m not talking here on how to set up/view bleed on export etc: I imported a PDF already coming with this, but AD shows just the page. This is new, cause for previous projects AD displayed the full area. Some screenshots to explain myself: - PDF file.png - the PDF as I want to see it in AD :) - PDF in AD in older projects.png - in my older projects, this PDF file opens in AD with all crops and bleed stuff - I can view/hide these in layers - PDF in AD now.png - crops and bleed layers are still here (selected layers), but the page is "smaller" Is something changed with an update? Or I'm missing something? Maybe something stupid :p How can I set up things in order to see the PDF as it was in "PDF in AD in older projects" screenshot? I use Affinity 1.8.3 on Mac. Thanks for your help!

  7. Using Affinity Publisher on Windows, my panels suddenly disappeared. I can only see the Master page that I had open at the moment. I am not able to go to any of the pages in my document. It is not only the pages panel that disappeared but all the panels on the right are also gone? How do I retrieve them? What did I do to cause them to disappear?

  9. So I'm trying to crop a photo using Affinity designer and it's pretty much impossible to figure out. In Photoshop I grab the crop tool and crop so simple. With affinity I can't figure it out at all. I tried this tutorial but it's not working and is overly complicated for something that should be a simple task. How can I easily crop a photo with affinity designer?
  10. Apologize for the confusing post below, but this has been a confusing introduction to Publisher. Soooo happy to be using Publisher and not having to boot to an external drive running Mavericks just to get to Adobe InDesign 5.5. However, for reasons still not uncovered, Publisher has had serious and consistent crash problems since the beginning. I now see that Affinity Publisher is available on the App Store. When I purchased Publisher on original release day, it was only available through the Affinity website as a download. Going through other areas of this support forum (beta, bugs, etc.), one can find my numerous posts regarding consistent crashes. Currently, I have achieved a workaround to the crashes (generally regarded as a unique, user-oriented issue rather than the software itself). This workaround has me setting up a separate user account and using a beta build (1.7.3.475). The beta builds were suggested prior to the suggestion of setting up a separate user account. If you are confused reading this, believe me, I have been confused on my end ten-fold. No matter, at this point I am working towards updating my OS to Catalina and considering what to do about the user accounts, beta builds and basically consolidating everything back to a normal setup. In this regard, I am also wondering if I should (or could) be using the App Store version, although since I originally downloaded from the Affinity website, the App Store is listing Publisher as a purchase. How would it work to download from the App Store? I do have my Product Key and all the particulars, but don't want to be charged additional money. Just want to set Publisher up normally as I have with Affinity Photo (downloaded from the App Store) and hopefully delete this separate user account that has been preventing the crashes from happening.
  11. I would wish to buy a gift card for affinity photo for windows or mac to someone, but I can't see a way to do that? edit: Actually, I wanna create a competition on my youtube channel and the price would be this software.
  12. In this Affinity Photo Tutorial, You will see, How to create Neon Glow Line around persons in Affinity Photo. In this tutorial, I used the Pen Tool and Node Tool for creating the line. I hope you like the video. Thanks #affinitytuts, #neongloweffect, #affinityphoto
  13. Dear Friends, The actual reproduction of this design is not important, it more 'how to' tackle something I first thought was very easy but still can not find a good way to reproduce. Basically I can see 4 vector wavy lines each with a gradient falling away on one side that is consistent whether the line is rising or falling. Interaction between the lines can be taken care of by overlays or whatever, its really the process forming a line by either using gradients that follow the line or create a brush that will do the job. The concept can then be used on backgrounds, letterheads etc This is probably something I will kick myself about but at present I am baffled. Thanks for all your help, Graham
  14. https://youtu.be/YqrDl8k8tTg Is their a youbrew code for inserting YouTube video links ? Regards Rob
  15. I have template that I'm working with to create a tumbler wrap. It shows that after designing within the rectangle, that you need to arc the rectangle design 16% to have it correctly wrap. The only thing close to an arc option I've found is in photo with the mesh warp tool. I don't like this option of rasterizing and not having vector elements. I also don't see where it can be precise in creating the arc. Anyone know how to do this? Especially keeping the elements vector?

  18. hello I'm wondering if there's a way to add pores like in this YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUqO2ZQVDp4
  19. This video is an excerpt from my -soon to be launched- "Learn Affinity Designer Fast" e-course. The most complete and comprehensive course on Affinity Designer. In this video I'll show you how to customize the object defaults, which allows you to set the fill color, gradient, opacity and noise values. You can also set all of the variables for the stroke, including color, gradient, opacity, noise, style, width, cap, join, alignment, draw behind, scale with object, and pressure curve values. This includes using a brush stroke! Being able to set the defaults for your objects whether it is just for that document or globally for future documents, is a great time saver. Your workflow will be come more efficient and your creative juices can flow freely without getting bogged down in the details. Setting defaults is a great web design tool for all you app creators out there. Enjoy and happy creating! Jen
  20. I'm trying to make some sporty text logo and was wondering how best to do the warp effect where the top is straight but the lower edge/baseline of the text is curved. In illustrator you go to Effects > Warp > Arc lower, but was wondering if Designer has something like this?
  21. Hey, I regularly create non-destructive compound path. I then want to use these as masks and clip other layers to them. When I drag a layer onto a compound path, the path gets included into the calculation, rather than being clipped. How can I change this behavior and use the Compound Path as a clipping mask? Thanks!
