  1. The object was created in one layer. I created another layer, drew some other objects. The first object though with stroke and fill just disappear, even in the outline view. The only way I can select it is to go to the layer to select but still it is not visible. I have to drag that particular layer on top so the object become visible. I have attached the clip if the explanation is uncleared. What is the problem? selection.mov
  2. While it is possible to see a rubylith overlay for quick masks, it is not possible when just editing a mask. This is useful because it can useful to know what areas of the image the mask is operatintg on and allows better control over the editing of masks
  3. I am unable to select the main object in the attached file by clicking on it in the canvas. The layer isn't locked. CPSA Book.afdesign
  4. Hi, I recently migrated from illustrator, so I'm not sure if my question is even valid. I built up a document with layers, but after I exported it to PDF using the PDF (export) profile, and opened the generated PDF file, every info on the layer arrangement is lost. Acrobat also doesn't show the layers. I appreciate your help.
  5. One can set the blend mode on an adjustment layer to for example Darken, and this results in the original layer and the live adjustment of it being blend together with Darken. Same for live filter layers. However I would like to take a series of adjustments and live filters, do all of them in a sequence on a pixel layer and then take the resulting adjusted image and blend with the original using some blend mode like Darken. Or for example take a blur layer, an invert layer and then apply the composition of these two with Vivid light blending to the original. The only way I can achieve visually what I am looking for is to duplicate the pixel layer, put the adjustments & filters on it and set a blend mode on it. However the layer duplication step makes the result a static filter, which no longer reflects changes in the original pixel layer. I was expecting that putting just the live filter and the adjustment layer into a layer group and then setting blend mode on the layer group achieves this non-destructively, but layer groups doesn't seem to work like this. Look at the screenshots, my expectation is to see the same image in the two cases. Is there some way to achieve this non-destructively?
  6. The quality of image became worse after merging 2 layers. (attached video) Is that a weakness point of the Affinity Photo on MacOS ? or due to my mistake? merge_layer_blur.mov
  7. Could we please have a keypress to select the parent of the currently selected object? This would allow for fast navigation within the Layers tree and adds a fine grained version of the Select All command, progressively expanding the current selection from a single object, up through the current group, layer, artboard, and document. Thanks for your consideration.
  8. Hey guys, When exporting to psd, the layers, if they are not named in Affinity, get export with the name Layer, followed by a number (Layer1, Layer2, etc) It would be great if the default layer names would actually get export as well. For example, if I don't name a layer that's a Curve, it would get exported with the name Curve, not Layer1. Thank you
  9. Hallo, I want to add an outer glow to a text. Found a few resources saying that there is an outer and inner glow layer effect. However I cannot find these effects in the software. I searched in Layer - Live Filter Layers (german: "Neue Live-Filterebene") but could not find these filters. Where can I find these. Thanks in advance and regards - Ulrich

    Broken Layer Visibility

    1. Load a pixel selection in a multi-layered document. 2. Hit Q to enter quick mask mode. 3. Toggle layer visibility 4. See image not update
  11. Affinity Designer 1.6.1 Hello there. I think this one is kind of bug. Type Korean text. Wait awhile or switch to other application. Noticed frame text layers after then. I have no idea where is it from. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Best regards. Cyrus. TypeKorean_720.mov
  12. Is there any way that Select by luminosity of Layer can be recorded in a macro. E.g. Ctrl, Shift an left clicking the layer gives you a selection based on luminosity (the brightest pixels) However if you try to record this as a part of a macro you get a warning that states layer selections cannot be recorded as macro. Basically, we should be able to record every action we do in a macro as in Photoshop. Come on Serif this is a basic requirement. Cheers in anticipation
  13. Hi everyone! I am using Affinity Photo after a while and found that it is not possible to use layer masks. I know some topics said 'uninstall Affinity Photo' or 'press CMD + D' or 'use the real black and white color' and 'do not forget to set you opacity to 100 percent'. I also restart my Mac and Affinity Photo but it still won't work. Ik hope there is a possibility I forgot to try to make it work again. Do you have any answers that will solve this problem? Thanks in advance! Joran
  14. Using AP 1.6.1.93 on Win10. When a pixel layer is alt-clicked, the layer contents are displayed in isolation. If in this state the pixel layer is deleted by dragging it into the bin in the layers panel, the image shown is refreshed and the deleted layer is no longer shown. However if you alt-click a mask of a layer, show the mask in isolation, and then delete the parent layer of the mask, thereby the mask as well, it still remains to be showed in the image area. It should refresh in the same way instead to not show the no-longer-existing mask.
  15. EDIT: The issues have been updated Hello everyone! When importing .psd files from Procreate, the layer blend settings will not be imported into Affinity Photo. Is this to be expected? Is this a limitation of Procreate's .psd export? Is this an issue with Affinity Photo? I am not using anything fancy. Just some color and some light layers. Best wishes, Shu Software used: Affinity Photo 1.5.1, Affinity Designer 1.5.1, OSX 11.6 Procreate 3.2
  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. In a large AD doc it appears that I have reached the limit of objects (ellipses) or Art Texts that can be edited under one top layer. I may be wrong, but I ran into the problem of not being able to select an object or a text to edit in such a "heavy" object laden layer. At first I thought it might be a memory problem so I closed AD and brought up the doc again, but the problem persisted. As soon as I moved this sub-layer from its position under a top layer (together with other sub-layers with their objects) and made this sub-layer a top layer itself, the objects in this top layer could be selected and edited. This makes me think that there might be a limit to objects under a top layer. If there is a limit, could you suggest the limit of objects under a top layer? Thanks.

    Selection Feature or Bug?

  19. Keyboard Shortcuts in Win10 for Layer Arrange Funktion don't work! Those are the culprits: Ctrl+] Ctrl+Shift+] Ctrl+[ Ctrl+Shift+[
  20. I have an image where some parts need sharpening and some parts need denoising or smoothing. The obvious way to do this is to create a mask that divides the image into these two component parts. No problem, I create an edge mask as a new layer and refine it appropriately. I could now duplicate my original image and sharpen one version (using Nik Sharpener) and denoise the other using Nik DFine. The mask should now be able to ensure that what I see is partly sharpened and partly denoised. But I cannot see how I can place the mask I have created to perform this task. I Because sharpening and denoising are fairly subtle, I have been practicing on an an image and a desaturated version, and a layer comprising several vertical black-and-white stripes so that I should be able to see a fairly obvious mask effect. I have tried following various videos and on-line guides typically involving moving the stripy mask into a position on one of the layers, but what I see is always either the stripy mask or no effect at all. The image below shows what I see before trying to place the mask. Any advice gratefully received. John
  21. How do I open new image files and have them go into a new layer? So far the only way I can get a new image into a layer is to open it, it opens in a new 'project(?)', a completely separate window. Then I select the image, copy, then go back to the project I'm working on and paste it into a layer. There has to be a direct way to just point to a file and have it open in the selected layer.
  22. I have a layer of place names on a map. I've applied 'MyStyle 1' to them all as I've typed them in. I can change their look by just editing 'MyStyle 1'. So far, so good. If I click the layer, all the place names are selected but if I try to now apply 'MyStyle 2' to them it doesn't work. I have to actually select all the items in the layer to change the applied style. That doesn't seem quite right to my way of thinking. Is this a bug, are the correct way of working?
  23. Hey all, I've been lurking on these forums for a while since I purchased Photo and Designer. I've also been using Serif software since the early 2000's starting with PhotoPlus 6.0 I think. Loving the software and looking forward to all the new stuff in the works. I came across a problem with cropping an image on a single layer. Every time I would crop, it would crop the entire canvas. I played with the software a bit and was able to come up with a quick way to crop an image on a single layer without affecting the others. I don't know if this information exists somewhere else on this forum but I could not find it anywhere. Please see the video below if you're interested: If anyone has any other ideas for tutorials I'm open to suggestions. Thanks, Collin
  24. Hi. At the bottom right corner of the screen in Affinity Photo, there is only one layer option, the pixel layer option. There were both options for layers mere hours ago. How could I get it back? Thanks. draeko
  25. Hi guys, At the moment I'm fighting with the theme of assets, symbols and grouping in the Affinity Designer. Compared to the illustrator, Affinity has revolutionized the handling of symbols and I am "relatively" satisfied with the available tools, but there is still room for improvement! I've been looking for the same ideas for a long time. There are many suggestions with different content and it is very difficult to follow them, so I do not know whether there have been similar proposals or not. So, let's go! With the identical objects I was able to help myself with assets and symbols, but when it comes to working on other forms in a group simultaneously, it's over with fun. Replacing symbols or objects with inheritance of their original size and position is not possible in Affinity Designer or I haven't found a function for it yet. I have found a good example of how such a thing can or has been realized in Microsoft Powerpoint (2013). It is not a real illustration program but the simple way to modify objects is unsurpassed! Please have a look at the examples here and I am curious about your review. Is this a "Nice to Have" feature for you or a feature that allows you to work quickly, effectively and flexibly? Or is such a feature already in your portfolio? Here you will find some visual examples without the generation of symbols "cloning" like in AD: Objects can be modified individually or together in a group. Different objects can be modified together Objects can be replaced together or independently. The size, position and rotation of the original object is taken over. Just a very simple drawing like the pentaptych or tryptichon is a challenge in AD An example of how PowerPoint works. Try to do this in AD with symbols at the same time and then replace them afterwards. In addition, AD (such as Adobe Illustrator CC and Incscape. With the exception of the CAD programs, because it would be fatal) a strange feature to deform the symbol duplicates (which are changed in their aspect ratio) during rotation. It is also not possible to edit the symbols in the "quasi" mask group, since this group is converted to a solid layer.
