  1. Is it possible, either in desktop (Mac) or iPad versions of Affinity Design, to constrain text to a shape as in the attach picture? many thanks
  2. Hello there, I am drawing on a Wacom Bamboo Slate, which can export your drawings (and writing via a kind of OCR) to text, image formats and SVG. Here's Wacom's specs for the Slate: http://www.wacom.com/en/products/smartpads/bamboo-slate#Specifications The Slate's ballpoint pen is marketed as having 1024 levels of pressure which in theory seems a bit much for a ballpoint pen, but would be nice if it could reproduce the light and heavy strokes you have made on paper. My problem is that the SVG files exported from Wacom's Inkspace app are filled black shapes instead of strokes. The shapes are thicker than the original paper lines, losing most of the line width variance, and I cannot find a way to reduce the width as you would with a stroke. I am attaching an image to illustrate my problem. Any thoughts on how to convert these shapes into strokes so that I could make them thinner? Many thanks in advance! PS there may be an answer in the thread below ('line width is not yet fully supported in the SVG standard'), but I'd like to confirm if something can be done about this using Affinity Designer? https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/45452-how-do-i-import-paths-they-keep-turning-into-shapes/#comment-227169
  3. The text on the bottom half on a circle is always upside down and is unreadable and stupid. I'VE RESEARCHED FOR TWO HOURS and can't find a solution. Flipping doesn''t help, baseline doesn't help, nothing helps. Take a look at the file. ANY HELP WOULD BE NICE. FYI Type on a path is the only reason I use affinity designer.
  4. Hey Affinity Experts, I have been trying to erase a top border on two combined custom shapes. One shape is dark suit jacket while the other shape is a white shirt shape on top of black suit jacket shape. My problem is that when I layer the shapes a very thin black outline remains from black shape. See example. How can I remove this black top outline? Do I have to erase it or is there a way to layer the shapes that causes the black border line to disappear at overlap. Thanks!
  5. In various other graphics editors it is possible to blend to shapes. For example you want to blend a red circle with a blue rectangle. I imagine this function would look like this in this imaginary function in Affinity Designer: You place the red circle and the blue rectangle on opposite sides of the document. You want the blend to rotate 360° and you want the blend to arc through a specific point on the document. You select the red circle and blue rectangle. You drag the "rotation center" to the side were you want the blend to arc. You type in 360 degrees in the blend tool dialogue box. You type in number of iterations, let's say 20. Then you hit the "Blend" button. Between the red circle and the blue rectangle there are now 20 shapes arcing between the two original shapes. Each shape - moving from the circle to the rectangle - becomes more like a rectangle, and vice versa. The color changes with each shape in the entire spectrum between red and blue, and the shapes in the arc rotates from the circle to the rectangle 360 degrees (negative values would rotate the shapes the opposite way). Maybe it would also be possible to outdo the competition by making it possible to do more color combination along the arc/path. Maybe it would also be possible to place more "rotation centers" - points through which the blending would take place.
  6. I seem to be going round in circles in trying to resolve this issue, so please help me if you can. I have an image that I want to crop at a diagonal (see attached image). It would seem that the Add/Subtract/etc. functions only work when it is two shapes that are being worked on, not a shape and an image - at least, when I try to do this, they are all greyed-out except for the Divide function (which doesn't appear to do anything). I have tried using a jpeg image, but have also converted that image to an eps and an svg, all with no luck. Am I doing something wrong, or asking AD to do something it can't - and, if that is the case, what can I do as an alternative? Is there a function in AP that would allow me to do this? I want to overlay the resulting, cropped, image onto an artist's impression. Any input would be much appreciated. Shape from image.afdesign
  7. Sometimes you require to align the nodes of shapes which it's nodes are not in the corner of the shape (see image 1), and it will be great if this can be done without modifying the shape to be align. I imagine that in the future this could be done in a new node option, in the alignment button (Image 1 and 2). If this can be already done, I would be more than happy to learn that. Thank you again for this amazing software!
  8. Hi There, I'm tryin to fill a curves shape so it has a black outline and a white fill. This file though has curves and a fill already, so I'm not able to fill it any further. Changing the outline to be black by changing the fill is no problem. How should I go about doing this...? Lily.afdesign

  10. I just purchased Affinity Photo and am seeing issues already. Brush import is not working properly/well. 1) Brush shape in AP ties to brush roundness in PS. Brushes imported into AP with a certain roundness retain the setting value under the Shape parameter. However the Shape parameter in AP does nothing. You can move the Shape setting from left to right and roundness/shape of the brush is unaffected. I have a cloud brush (attached) with a roundness of 36, it looks properly squashed in PS, it is unaffected and full size in AP. Assigning the value upon import indicates that the Shape parameter should do what the Roundness parameter does (otherwise why import the value?) but the FUNCTION of the Shape parameter is not the same as the roundness function in PS. 2) PS has functionality where a control like Rotation is set with a value of 0 for control based upon direction but it still functions (as long as some control type is assigned to the control). In AP, the value imports as 0, but a zero value shuts off the dynamic even if a control type is assigned. In order to get proper behavior, export should not disable the dynamic if a control type is assigned but the control value is 0, and should only disable the control if the control type is None. 3) Resetting the brush values doesn't set them back to original imported default values. 4) Import of the "spacing" value needs to be adjusted (see attached PSD) to achieve similar results to a brush's performance in photoshop, or maybe this is caused by #5: 5) Flip X jitter and Flip X jitter aren't present in AP. There is no substitute that I can see in any of the brush settings that will give the same effect. Brushes with this characteristic checked in PS behave very differently in AP. This kind of randomness is essential in order for a foliage brush or a cloud brush to look natural by avoiding repetition. (See cookie-cutter effect in attached photoshop file.) I attached brush files (imported and original) and a PSD file showing AP behavior vs PS behavior. The differences are night and day and the brush import is not usable in its current state. In the PSD, the AP brush behavior is above and the PS behavior is below. BrushBug.psd Bug Brushes.afbrushes OneCloudBrush.abr
  11. 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
  12. I am currently trying to create a 'heart shaped tart'. I have made a circular version (1), but am unsure on how to create the same effect with the heart (2) let alone any other shape than a circle. The circular version (1) used a circle on top of a gear shape. Any help welcome, thanks!
  13. Hey guys, I'm trying to divide (or something) the shapes in the attached example. Basically I wanna cut the dark red shape from the black shape, so that the black shape will have an empty circle where the dark red circle is. How do I do that? I tried divide, but that only works the way I want it to only if the shapes don't overlap completely. Thanks divide-test.afdesign
  14. Hi guys, I am trying to get the text into a path, for example a circle. I can see how to to put the ON a path, but I can't figur our how to put it INSIDE it (in the most non-sexual way possible ) I attached a screenshot of what I'm trying to achieve, made with Fireworks. Thank you kindly
  15. Hello! I have just purchased Affinity Designer yesterday, so I am new to this. I have watched some tutorials, but none of them seems to cover what I want. I have two objects, as seen on picture picture [1]. What I want, is for object [1] and [2] to share one side, like what it looks like they do on picture [2]. Now the side that looks like it belongs to both of the objects only belongs to object [2]. Therefore, object [1] is not a closed shape, and if I try to color it, what happens can be seen on picture [3]. Putting it one layer above does not work, as seen on picture [4], but it would not be a nice solution anyways. I want to be able to color both shapes to different colors. For this I need two shapes, that share the same side, or to copy that side over to the other object as well, and put the copy on top of the original one. So basically I want it to like what it's on picture [5]. Please note that picture [5] was done by editing the screenshot in Paint, and not in Affinity Designer, but what I am wanting to be able of is to do that in Affinity Designer. Thank you. Picture 1: Picture 2: Picture 3: Picture 4: Picture 5:
  16. Hi, I have a shape that is closed and contains a hole. On the picture joined : - This shape is a result of a boolean combination of 2 identical shapes slightly shifted. - The stroke is red - The fill is black. I want to fill the hole in the center of this shape. 1 - I tried all the boolean operations (including divide) with no success, it doesn't "restore" the 2 original shapes as some vertices have been merged. 2 - I tried removing vertices to restore a "filled" shape, but it is too hard as some vertices are overlapping other ones (is there a way to "hide" vertices like in Blender ?) 3 - I could redraw a shape on top of the original, but It's too hard because of the complexity of the bezier curves. 4 - I tried to make a square nested in this shape's layer, but it make the square appears only in the "fill" part of this shape (the black part). How can I fill the center of this shape ? Thank you, Cédric.
  17. Hello, I'm using Affinity Designer. I would like to create a vector brush that is an eclipse shape. I followed the tutorial for creating a vector brush except I used the eclipse vector shape instead of a brush. I saved it as a png and then uploaded it as a new textured intensity brush. Unfortunately, when I draw with it, the edges are blurry and jagged. Are there any tips on how I can make this better?
  18. In Affinity Design for Windows I created a shape and gave it an outline. I then I messed around and put text on its path. It changed it so that now - there is no colored stroke/no line and I cannot re-add a stroke or fill it. What am I doing wrong? Windows 10 Latest Design update 3/2018
  19. 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.
  20. Hi guys. I create a shape by Pen tool. Is there a way to make a dotted /dashed line around it? Thanks
  21. Hey Everyone, I'm using the projects in the workbook. I was learning the freehand tool and it is not working properly. When I try to use it, I draw the selection you can see in the "desired" pic below. However, when I release, I end up with a semi-circle which does not look like what I drew. It also doesn't match what's in the book. Has anyone had this problem? Am I doing something incorrectly? Please help! I'm using the most current updated Mac OS X. I've tried closing other programs, reinstalling affinity, and all the other usual solutions.
  22. Hi, I'm new with Vector drawing and rather new to AD. What I'm trying to achieve: (https://www.vecteezy.com/vector-art/95407-white-abstract-geometric-vector) What would be the best way to draw these triangles? Steps and Problems encountered when drawing triangles with the pen tool in Polygon mode: After each closed polygon a new curve layer is created, which makes it impossible to reuse a nodes and edges as part of another triangle To use a triangle that is created through creating surrounding triangles, a polygon has to be drawn explicitely where each node is on top of others To move nodes, all layers have to be selected and before moving a node I have to select join curves. This however is forgotten as soon as I select another layer I've also tried using the triangle tool, but this doesn't make it easier, as I'll have to move more nodes around afterwards. Maybe this is the way one has to deal with it, but I was hoping, someone could recommend a better workflow. Thanks in advance.
  23. 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.
  24. I want to draw a shape like you can see in the first image. The black stroke should go around the shape but interrupt at multiple points. The filling should be everywhere within that shape. I use shapes with the same background color which cover the stroke part (second image) but that does not always work. Is there a better way to do this? I know I can use the "erase" blend mode but I think this causes rasterization on export. If anyone knows how to draw a shape like in the first image please let me know... I dont want to draw a separate curve and place it on top the grey shape. It has to be one shape for easy editing.
