  1. This vector layer has been forced to turn off Anti-Aliasing. One of its curve layer has been rotated, before being rasterized. The rasterized layer doesn't retain its former shapes in pixel accuracy (or its shape displayed in Pixel view mode). *Edit: even without rotating the object, vector layers cannot keep its pixel-perfect shape after being resterized
  2. The existing way of locking the layer does not protect its contents from unwanted change. It only provides protection before selecting from canvas area and moving contents (https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/53707-lockingunlocking-layers/&do=findComment&comment=271924). But it would also be useful to ensure protecting the layer from unwanted contents modifications. For example, as it is solved in Photoshop, with "Fully" and "Partialy" lock (https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/moving-stacking-locking-layers.html). Related Threads
  3. For a few applications, e.g. with shapes with the 3d effect, it's important to be able to visually "cut" a hole in the shape without actually altering the original shape. It's also useful in general to be able to remove a shape's area from a drawing without having to mess around with subtracting the shape or shapes from (especially since the order of the layers sometimes gets messed up if you don't subtract the shape from each shape individually, which means a lot of copy-pasting). So I'm asking if it's possible to set a shape to act as a visual "removal" effect. If it's not clear what I mean,
  4. Locked pixel layer at the bottom of layer hierarchy is selectable by clicking or dragging. If it's not at the bottom, it's not selectable.
  5. Photo crashes when selecting a layer before showing the layer selection dialog with Japanese UI. (Seems to be ok with English UI) Step to reproduce: 1. start recording a macro. 2. create a pixel layer. 3. duplicate it multiple times with Cmd+J 4. select a layer.
  6. Hi there, is it possibele to change the icon size of the layers in the layer palette? i have switched to a WQHD monitor and i`m happy with the extra space (comming from a full hd-monitor). so basicly everything is fine, but now it`s hard to detect whats behind theese little icons in the layer pallete. I´n on windows 10 and i know that i can switch the size of the whole interface, but thats no helpfull because then i again loose much more space.
  7. Hello all … back once again with a new Dumb Question of the Month (are prizes given for that? just asking …) Anyhow: Affinity Photo (1.9.2) had been working perfectly well and allowed me to click on a “pixel” layer, highlight the “pixel” designator word, and replace it with a more descriptive title indicating that layer's function. Not so anymore. The last two images I've edited in AP have steadfastly rebuffed all attempts to re-name a layer. Whether it's an pixel layer, an adjustment layer, a group of layers I'd like to rename … doesn't matter. Can't do it. Won't let me. Also of interest (in
  8. Is there a possibility to unlink a mask from the pixel layer? In Photoshop it's a simple click on the chain between pixel layer and mask. Can this somehow done also in AP? I know, I easily can place the Buzzard layer above the clouds and for that get rid of the mask on the cloud layer. But what, if that's not possible and an unlinking pixel and mask is needed? Appreciate any help and hints. How_to_Unlink_Mask_from_Layer.mov
  9. What's the difference between Mask Layer and another one(the one with the crop icon) technically in this case? The another one can be a pixel layer. In that case, they seems to be no difference each other. I've been using them without knowing the difference whole time. But I like to know the difference to explain the layer system to other users.
  10. Why can I not paint in Affinity Photo? It is as if the program does not register that I am putting a black paint stroke on a layer...or any other color stroke for that matter.
  11. Hi, I have a terribly frustrating bug with renaming layers. I've seen this posted before, and the bug was said to be fixed in an update (which has already come). When typing a new name for layers, the text field constantly de-focuses itself – this happens so often, and so regularly, that naming layers is essentially a completely lost function for me. Layer naming is a critical function that I can not afford to lose. It can take me sometimes longer than an entire minute to successfully rename a single layer, artboard or group. I am using a MacBook pro with external monitor. Happens with
  12. Hello there! Purchased Affinity Photo two days ago and I am (happily) on the (re)learning curve. I have to say, there went a lot of good thought in some of the altered features (compared to how they work in Ps), well done! Of course there will be quite a lot of questions. Some I can find here, some I couldn't. So I will ask here on the forum, putting the Ps nomenclature in the title for future Affinity-Turners that also say goodbye to Ps! My question: I am working on a composition in which I want to flip a layer horizontally. Ofcourse, using the move tool I can flip it but I only
  13. Hi guys, I was working on an image I cropped a bit, then I wanted to apply an adjustment (any) to it, what happens is that the adjustment layer is added but due to no pop-up it cannot be modified. I'm running Affinity Designer v1.6.1.93 Any ideas?
  14. Have created a few LUTs (Look Up Tables) using affinity photo and also downloaded a lot of them from the internet, Can select a specific LUT from Adjustmens > LUT > Load LUT and use it as an adjustment layer, but if we have hundreds of them then we need to select one at a time to preview how it would look on the image it would be great if we could see a preview how all of them would look when applied to the image, and then be able to select the one that we like
  15. I am learning the in and outs of Designer and love it. I find myself using it more than Illustrator for projects now. One of the (few) problems I'm having is that when I will lock a layer then continue working and I will realize that the layer was somehow unlocked and I am editing in what was supposed to be a locked layer. For instance today I placed a scanned reference image and locked it. Then I created a pixel working layer on top of it. After a couple dozen brush stokes I realized that the brush strokes were being created on the supposedly locked layer. And the locked image layer had been
  16. Hi Mates, Is there anyway to rename the layer/layers with a hotkey? Tried to search in hotkey config but I didn't find any renaming option in Layer keys. Thanks!
  17. is there a way to create “half drop” repeat patterns in version 1.9 or does it limit you to only single image simple even patterns? How about patterns with multiple images? Also, Can I import other elements from another file or another layer to incorporate it into the repeat pattern layer?
  18. I want to copy a small square portion of a layer. I draw a marquee using the box marquee tool I copy I paste It pastes a new copy layer not the marquee selection . I can mask or fill but i cant seem to copy the selection. I'm obviously making a very basic error but i cant find it.
  19. Hi, This happened twice today, my first day of using AP for work, so I'm learning as I go along. I'm discovering, learning things and I'm liking the program more and more. After 6-7 hours of work, a text block has locked up and will not unlock in any way. The layer itself doesn't have a lock icon on it. Locking and unlocking the layer does nothing. I have tried to find a solution online. It did happen to someone with a beta version and there was no solution then. I recreated the page. The same thing happened, this time with a different text block. I love the synergy between Photo,
  20. I have absolutely no luck with locking layer. It makes me wonder if my understanding of what it is supposed to accomplish is what I think. Let's go back to the beginning. First I used Adobe programs. This became too expensive as a rental for a non-professional like myself, especially after I closed my main business. At the time the cost was incurred when you bought it, not a rental fee. The small projects I do are not money makers. I switched to Affinity because the cost was more reasonable. Now to the problem: If I save a document and reopen in Designer items will move from where I
  21. Sometimes I need to expand an image to change its ratio. In gimp I would use the "Canvas Size" function first and then "Layer to image size". In Affinity Photo I have been able to resize the canvas but found no option to change layer sizes. Am I missing something?
  22. Hi everyone Is it possible in Affinity Publisher to create one layer system so that it applies to all pages (existing and new)? In other words - I create two layers: Layer1 and Layer2. And from now on all pages in the current document have the same set of layers. The new pages will also have the same set of layers. Thank you for your help
  23. I have a Macbook Pro 16 with lots of Ram. I updated to Big Sur and then latest Affinity for Big Sur. Now I sometimes have trouble selecting layers. I have to tap them several times. Also Affinity photo is much slower. Help!
  24. I searched the forum but did not find this addressed (maybe my search was bad, so please link to topic if I missed it). Opening eps files in different applications always comes with some surprises. This screen dump shows the same eps file opened in AD (1.8x) and Adobe Illustrator CC2018. And I notice a few things. I have converted the document color space to RGB/8 sRGB in both applications and files. As you can see on the screen dump RGB color is slightly different from AI to AD (AI is on the left, AD on the right). As you also can see, layer are better organized in AI than AD. Layers ar
  25. Hi, I want to make an object (green square) with a transparent hole inside of it. How do you do this? I can't seem to find the option for this So basically a square, with a circle inside of it, but you cannot see the fill of the circle as well as the fill of the square. So a square with a hole inside. In my attachment the circle is black, however I want it gone. Black hole that should be transparent.afdesign If I try to make the circle a mask of the layer, I get a round circle...? How do I inverse this? Removing the circle not the green square? Masked square that gives a round gre
