  1. Hi! I am new to Affinity Designer and already have searched the internet to find an answer. The Info I found is that the measurement tool was planned years ago, but nothing to measurements in the newest release. Is there any way to measure the length of a (curved) line in the newest version? I am interested in an exact measurement in physical units (mm). Thanks!
  2. Is there a way to offset the path of an object (to create a new path / object that isn't just a scale of the first object)? Please see attached: Thanks!
  3. Having the ability to apply a raster brush to a path would be such a welcome feature, even if the path is not editable after applying the brush effect. In many cases there are obscure shapes or angled lines that are difficult to draw freehand, and in those cases it would be great to be able to use the pen tool, but still retain the same texture and style of the raster brush you were using, as if you drew the stroke by hand. I know you can apply vector brushes in AD, but I mostly use the raster brushes in AP to sketch. Furthermore, the brushes in AD are stretched along the path, where in AP it would be great to rather have the ability to make it look like the stroke was drawn as if you were using the brush tool. I’ve recently been drawing out a lot architectural interiors for clients using a drawing tablet in Photo, and have really missed the ‘apply brush to path’ feature from Photoshop - would really speed things up and improve the end results! I’ve seen a few mentions of this online, but wasn’t sure if it was logged as a feature request yet, so here you go.
  4. Probably on my top 10 most used features in Illustrator is the stroke width tool, which allows you to adjust the width of the stroke at each anchor point. This can somewhat be achieved using the Pressure tab within the pen line settings, but it isn't nearly as precise. A couple of solutions might be: Add a stroke width tool to allow anchor points to be adjusted. Within the pressure panel, display a point on the graph for every anchor point from the shape. And allow these to be adjusted only vertically on the graph by holding shift, so that they stay on the anchor points. Create a new panel in the pen menu that allows for a numerical value to be entered in for stroke width. Thanks for listening.
  5. Hey! I just wanted to draw something. Did so but it created a path that doesn't show in the layer panel. Assigning a stroke width or color or fill doesn't make it appear. As soon as I deselect it's gone for good... Starting new paths does bring the same results. Is this a know error? Using the latest release version. Chris PS: Only happened once so far and with the next restart I could draw normally again.
  6. Hi and thanks in advance. Is there a way of attaching text to a path inside a circle (see image), I can get it going on the outside but how is it done inside?
  7. Hi there! I created a grahpic with curves in Affinity Designer and want to export the graphic as a svg-file. The svg file should look like usual, for example with path tags and should be able to select with css. <path d="....> But what I always get is a svg file like that, with a whole bunch of characters after it. <defs><image id="_Image1" width="800px" height="200px" xlink:href="data:image/png;base64, ...... I do not know what I'm doing wrong. Could you please help me out? Aim is to export a "normal" svg file without png type or something. I am exporting svg with the "digital" setting, 72dpi. Thank you.
  8. Hi, I've the following scaling issue: I have a logo that consists of several shapes and 2 text paths. The logo is used as a symbol, in different layouts for mobile and web screens. How can I scale the logo including its child-objects (the 2 text on paths), without loosing the correct visual appearance of the logo? If I scale the logo (the whole object) down: - the text wraps around the curves (as it is described in the AD help) - that means I have my big logo (which looks good) a smaller logo with to large text, so I have to modify the text separately on the smaller logo (the instance of the symbol). But if I do so, I loose the correct visualization on the other symbols (the original, the bigger ones). And vice versa. An infinite loop... 1.) I need an option like "scale with object" as it exists for layerFX or 2.) the default scaling behavior of text on paths must be like that Thanks a lot for your time, your ideas, your help, Stefan.
  9. Hello, I'm just playing around with Affinity Photo and I was wondering if there is a way to convert a selection to a path? I know that it's easy to generate a selection from a path but can you go the other way? cheers, -tomek
  10. I want from image one to image two... The best way I found was creating my paths, expand them and divide, so i can delete everything outside the shape.... and I got image 3... that would be a damn painful lot of work to clean this mess up. Is there no better way around... or way to do it at all? Divide is a mess in this programm... and let me guess, there is no live paint bucket tool?
  11. Hello Is this possible in Affinity Designer? I can't find any settings. Thank you.
  12. Good day! If you would like to copy a part of any vectorshape, now you have to (1) copy the path, (2) select 2 nodes seperately, (3) break them, (4) ungroup the object, (5) delete the part you don't need. (6) break and delete node, if open path is required OR (1) copy the path, (2) draw a path on top of it that includes the area you'd like to keep, (3) mark the two objects, (4) use intersect-tool, (5) break and delete node, if open path is required I would very much like to simply (1) SELECT the part of a curve I want and then press (2) COPY+PASTE to paste the selection. Thank you for considering!
  13. Hi, I found a problem connecting the paths. In version 1.7.3.481 I mark the two ends of the path and click join curves and I get a connection. In beta version 1.8.0.555 by clicking join - connect opposite ends! This is a problem with the direction (interpretation or description of the path in the given version). The same paths pasted to version 17 connect opposite pins. And those copied from 17 and pasted to 18 connect correctly! Robert
  14. Hello, When I draw a path that has a stroke that varies by pressure, "layer > expand stroke" defines an area smaller than the existing stroke. It looks like adding a stroke width to this new stroke can help as a workaround, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything. Thank you for the great product! affinityExpandStroke.mp4
  15. Searching the help did not produce any result. How do I draw for example a 12-leaf-daisy by only drawing one leaf and than duplicate/rotate it along a circular path? Is there any built in function like "actions" or "automatic repeat by angle and path"
  16. How can I turn my curve into a selection so that I can continue working with it? Or is this function not yet available?
  17. Hey, I have several photos with an included path, but I cannot find it in Affinity photo. In Photoshop there is a "Studio" for paths. Where do I find this one in Affinity photo? Thanks for your help!!
  18. Hi! Is there a way to edit one letter in a text so it would change every time i use this letter again? For example, i have a word "Coffee". Can i adjust paths of fitst F and A so that the second ones would preserve the changes? ___ Is it okay to ask this things once in a while? I'm afraid that i post a lot
  19. Hello world, Does anyone know how to align a these circles on a path or stroke ? Thank you
  20. Hello Affinity, With the help of @Old Bruce I managed to copy circles on a path, and align the circles using the text tool. It is not as user-friendly to modify the space of the circles using the characters tracking. It is like a sort of a hack way to aligning shapes to paths. I thought it would be nice to add a separate feature for aligning shapes on paths. Also add the pattern feature too, so we don't manually repeat patterns. I know I ask too much but you guys are awesome. Thank you, text-path-align.afdesign
  21. Hey guys I just recently made the switch from Adobe ecosystem to Affinity Designer & Photo because i'm not trying to shell out $600 a year for the rest of my life. I'm getting myself adjusted with Designer right now, but i hit a snag. I can't seem to Add/Remove nodes to existing paths like you could in Illustrator. I've tried searching in Help, but nothing comes up. Is this feature not currently available in Designer? If that's the case, then when can we expect this option in a future update? I only ask because it's something I use often. Thanks in advance for your help and time.
  22. It was brought up in this topic: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/16297-any-way-to-force-everything-to-paths-when-exporting-to-svg/ Essentially, when I export to svg I want everything exported as <path>'s but I get some <rect>'s even though they are displayed as (Curve)'s. Is there a solution for this?
  23. I'm a beginner and I have a question. As shown in the picture in the appendix, I try to make a pie chart with text in the pie slices. Each pie slice should have two-line text. And of course I would like every text right in the middle of the pair. Both horizontally and vertically. I think I have to make a new circle path for every line of text and I don't know how to calibrate the middle. Perhaps there is a way to do this more practically and efficiently. Can anyone help me with this please? thank you in advance
  24. Export Persona configure common path is not working. Running Designer app on Windows 10. I type or copy & paste the path into the "Path:" field, but when I export the slice/slices all it does is create folders for the given path locations and saves the JPG slices in the last designated folder location. Shouldn't the app be locating the existing directory path, NOT recreating folders (highlighted in red) for the path entered in the "Path:" field? I noticed in "Path:" field the colon after C (C:\...) does not show up in the path name (C\...) when typed or copy & pasted in. Could that have something to do with it? See attached screen shots. Best, Carl
  25. Hey folks, I'm just wondering what' the difference between the two options in the Layer → Geometry menu. At first glance they both seem to have the same function – maybe someone can enlighten me? 💡 Cheers and … wash your hands MrDoodlezz 😄
