  1. Hello, I am looking for a function to create a shape with muliple outlines(see attachment). Does AD has got a tool for this or do I have to do it manualy? Thanks in advance nod
  2. Hi guys, Can Affinity create wave like borders, or other styles of borders automatically? I attached an example, the bottom border is what I'm talking about. Thanks
  3. Hi guys, There has been a bit of a nasty bug, and I thought I posted it, but it seems that I forgot. Basically, if you draw a circle, give it a color (blue for example), and then apply a a stroke to it, let's say white, and align it on the inside, the FILL color will be slightly visible around the edges of the circle. Which is really mot that good This is pretty important, since right now we have to find workarounds, so it would be great if this would be fixed for the next Beta version. I also attached a file that shows exactly what I mean Cheers, Chris outline-test.afdesign
  4. Hello! I have been trying to add an outline on a selection but nothing appears. I make a square selection, then create a new pixel layer, then I’m adding an outline effect with the settings as shown on the screenshot below and nothing appears. I have tried anything, even reinstalling the app in case there was something wrong with it. The weird thing is that I had done it in the past and it had worked fine but it’s been more than a month now that I can understand what is wrong. On the screenshot you can see the settings and please let me know if I’m doing something wrong. (Ipad pro 12.9) Thanks!
  5. Is it possible to create a shape from an outline in Affinity Designer? For example if I have a straight line with a set stroke width of 12px which isn't a "closed shape" like it's needed for certain printing techniques: is there some way to create a closed shape from a line with stroke, in this simple case 2 points (line from A to B), to have a shape without outline, with 4 points and a width of 12px? Without doing that completely manually? Edit: Ok, forget it. Found the option in the layer settings via the upper menu. At first I looked in the context menu of the layer, which didn't help much.
  6. To reduce the number of vertices (in comparison with the Stroke to "expend stroke") For the save of the original bezier curves (in comparison with the Stroke to "expend stroke") Thanks For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndDoY_BUm5Q&feature=youtu.be&t=2m (02:00) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqHjU2hiWAo&feature=youtu.be&t=10m50s (10:50)
  7. I've was using Affinity Designer last night to create probably smaller graphics than what most are used with Affinity products.. 52x52 pixels. The issue that arises is that If I save a style that has a specific inner outline set in Effects I would guess that it doesn't change from what I set it to - to the next time I apply this style to a new shape layer? But, it does.. I wanted to specifically use 1.8px Inner Outline and save that as a style(which I have a question about too - that'll be a different thread) Instead what happens is that the Outline is now 1.3px - still Inner in it's appearance but the behaviour is not what I expect. Can it be trusted; meaning Affinity Designer or am I just a lost cause.
  8. Hey Guys, Shortquestion about some Features not found in affinity designer. Is there any possibility in affinity designer or photo to vectorize content without redraw the element with lines. i´m creating a album artwork for a band and switched to affinity products. Maybe a dumb question, but i´m a newbie so please dont be that hard at this question. Regards
  9. Will Affinity Designer ever offer the possibility to Outline Strokes (not only for strokes made with the "Basic" set of vector brushes, but for any other vector brush, too) and / or the possibility to Trace an Image? This is what I miss most in Affinity Designer, compared to Illustrator. I can't imagine working with vectors without having these essential tools. ☹️ Just would like to know if there are any plans to make this and when. Thank you.
  10. I don't remember this before in previous versions so trying to understand if this is a bug or how to turn off, but there's a light red stroke or outline on my text.
  11. Hi I paid a designer to create a logo for me. They have done it using Adobe Illustrator and esported to .eps and .pdf for me. When I open the pdf file in Adobe Reader or Internet Explorer, the logo loos as expected. However, when I open both the .eps file and the .pdf file in Affinity Photo, there are gaps between the shapes/colours, which should be touching eachother with no gaps. Is this a bug with Affinity Photo? As a result of the issues, the files provided to me are useless because I cannot do anything with them without there being a gap between the colours. I have attached 2 screen captures of the problem - you can see the problem more clearly on the one where I have zoomed in - there are white pixels along the edge of the vector edges, even though the shap has no outline, just a fill. It's almost as if Affinity Photo is not anti-aliasing the edges correctly. One thing I thought it might have been, is when AP tries to 'snap to pixels' so I turned that option off before opening the file but it made no difference. Any thoughts/comments/suggestions appreciated!!!! Thanks, Rob
  12. Hi, I have noticed a glitch inside the new version of Affinity Designer 1.6. When I try to expand the stroke of a circle (which only has a stroke), the expanded element gets distorted and is not a perfect circle anymore (see attachment). Hope you guys can fix this. Best regards, Dusan
  13. I have a photo that I outlined with the pen tool to attempt to clean up the lines. So, now I have my outlined created with the pen tool and I got rid of the background. How do I fill in my outline? I just want it to be filled in black. Attached is the file I am working on. Thanks, T10Pro new deer logo.afdesign
  14. I'm trying to create a hand drawn circled effect...like if you see something you like on paper and want to highlight it. this works great if you use a brush to outline an ellipse but the problem is I'd like the ends to touch...better yet if they could cross paths. How can I create this? Also, for when I want to leave a gap, how can I change the point when the brush starts and ends? e.g if I want the gap to be on the bottom or the left?
  15. I just want to copy the same effect values to the other object and I already disable 'Scale to Object' checkbox before copying. The copied result is still scaled effect. Please try my file. (copy the round rectangle to the triangle) copy_outline_stroke_bug.afdesign
  16. I would like the ability to lock or turn on the ability to keep an image object (or any object for that matter) from being affected by the Outline mode. This is incredibly useful when tracing out objects and they have fills applied while your using boolean functions to customize shapes (while retaining the stacking order of specific objects) or to remove the appearance of objects momentarily to trace the image. Sometimes you have nested layers and need to get to them quickly and cannot target them (or spend ages locating them in the layers panel) unless outline mode.
  17. I am new to Affinity Designer, and looking to thin out a fixed width text (I need a thinner version of the text on a different layer for printing purposes). This is possible in Adobe Illustrator through the use of a negative "offset path", but I cannot figure out how to do it in Affinity, which does not appear to have an offset path feature. The latest post I can find re:Offset Paths in Affinity Designer: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/30221-offset-path/ Here is how people do this in Illustrator: https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/22315/how-to-make-a-font-thinner http://www.alison.co.uk/2011/11/22/how-to-make-a-fixed-font-thinner-in-illustrator/ Does anyone have a technique for achieving the same goal in Affinity Designer?
  18. I would like to see the background image when activating the outline mode, I am requesting this option since 2014 :huh:
  19. Hey, Is there a way to turn off artboard white outline? If there is no such option, this should go to the suggestions thread.
  20. I am using several shapes to form a cartoon character. For the arm for example, I used 3 shapes that I grouped together. I want to outline the finished arm, but it keeps outlining all of the individual shapes within the group. Any guidance would be appreciated.
  21. As soon as I apply an outline effect to geometry layer (e.g. ellipse), the fill and stroke opacity is gone. It reappears as soon as I delete the outline effect.
  22. Hi, I am new to Affinity Photo and amn having problems establishing a consistent work flow with assigning/changing font colors. The issue I'm having now is that outlines are appearing around letters even though outlined is NOT selected in fx. I can't get rid of them, have looked in the manual an done a search, but no joy. Can anyone explain why this is happening and how to stop it? Also, in the color picker, I don't get what the red line through a color means. Thanks!
  23. I did a subtract operation and now I have a permanent outline (the black and white line that looks like it moves around the perimeter). See the attached GIF. This stays no mater what layer I hide or even if I open it on another computer (both Macs) It doesn't seem to affect my workflow, its just a little annoying that it is constantly visible. I've tried doing another subtract operation, doing a new selection, and a copy / paste. All worked, but didn't cause the permanent outline to disappear. I'm guessing this is a bug, but it happened in Affinity Designer 1.5.5
  24. Hello I just want to report some weird behavior I noticed in outline mode. clicking an object ignores completely any grouping and select the object withing the group. duplicate is duplicating the object in wrong position (for e.g. if I copy an object next to it and press ctrl+D the duplicate will be not happen next to the object but far away and not even in line) if I duplicate this way and press undo (no matter how many undo) and then press ctrl+Y to return in vector view the result is to redo what I undid and after that enter the vector view. All the above happen only in outline view, I couldn't replicate this behavior while in vector view.
