  1. There are lines on borders of shapes. There is no stroke on objects. I know that I can turn off anti-aliasing, but then shapes are rough. These lines are visible even after exporting to raster or vector. I had this problem even in V1. I didn't find on Forum other solution than anti-aliasing. Is there any way to get rid of these lines without manually cover tens of these coffee beans by other whole shapes? (It is a pattern so I can't use whole beans. I can't add them together too, because most of them disappearing.) It is really annoying...
  2. Good morning everybody, I am finding another thing that seems to be missing from Designer which I use an awful lot in CorelDRAW and which is kind worrying to me unless maybe I'm missing something. In Corel I have a blend tool. I believe Illustrator has the same thing though I don't use Illustrator. It allows me to create two objects and blend them together. This is particularly useful for creating interesting drop shadows and so on. Is there really no way to do this in Designer? I'm attaching a screenshot to show you what I mean. Corel allows me to choose which aspects of each object interact with one another. Hopefully there is some way of doing this or it will be added as it seems like a very important tool to me. Thanks very much and let me know! Phil

  4. Hi, what are the chances to receive the option to export Vector shapes into Shapes for Apple Motion? This is a option I would love to see, which would push me away further from Adobe Illustrator. We create most of our Logos in Illustrator and run a script to export the vector shapes for Apple Motion. This would be a great feature for motion graphic artist that use Apple Motion! Thanks
  5. Hi, I've been using the Affinity Software for 5 years now, mainly for creating everything print and web making Publisher and Photo my main tools of creation. In fact, I use Designer for one thing and one thing only, being able to use the excellent "Corner tool" to for example triangles as Publisher has no way of letting me do this. Yes, Publisher has a good way to have corner radius on both rectangles and stars but no way to have it on shapes like triangles, diamond, trapezoid and so on. In fact, with Designer one can use the "Corner tool" on ALL the shapes which, in my mind, makes it a real power tool. I know that having all three products in the suite allows for creating a triangle in, for instance, Publisher, then switch to Designer and use the radius tool and switch back but having the "Corner tool" within Publisher would make this kind of work effortless. I'm all for differentiating products but I think that users should not be forced to buy for example Designer just to be able to have border radius on shapes other than stars and rectangles. Don't get me wrong, I would buy all three products in this really high value and excellent suite even if I only needed one of them just to support Affinity, but for me - Publisher and Photo cover just about all my production needs and in my mind Designer are more a tool for artists. So, to make Publisher perfect, include the "Corner tool" from Designer in the toolbox pretty please //Bo

  7. Mind the gap! Is this a bug or is there a way to avoid gaps between combine shapes? I was practising with the Shape Builder Tool and separate pieces have a visible gap (in app and exported). Gradient pieces have a different fill. Vertices and gradient are snapped in position. I "could" add a tiny edge to shapes to fill the gap, but that workaround does not work well in all cases.
  8. I'm stuck on a project trying to make a single shape from two separate lines I made with the pen tool. I drew two independent lines with the pen tool, and I connected them with two more lines at each end, now I want to make a single shape that I can fill, but after drawing the two lines to connect the first two lines, I can't fill the area because I need to make a single shape so I can fill it. How do I make those four lines into a single shape?
  9. In this tutorial I show you how to create windows or blinds from scratch and use them to create a more dramatic photo. I use shadows, shapes, blur, blend modes, gradients, perspective and more. I originally saw this done in photoshop, but they were selling the shadows, while I am showing you how to make them yourself. https://youtu.be/ceUU7V6lIfY I also did an iPad version. the link is in the desktop video.
  10. Just like the title. My document is new, object is new. I even reset the rotation angle of both the objects and canvas to make sure they are square. The problem only happens occasionally for certain zoom levels.

  11. Hello Affinity fam! I would like to start using these forums more often and share with you the pieces I'm creating. Here is my latest completed piece. I leave you the information of the piece below. Greetings and thank you so much! https://i.imgur.com/d52WZnm.jpg
  12. Hello! I want to know how to blend points inside a shape, I often download things from Getty Images and have to modify it, However sometimes the shapes are very complex and create "Holes" inside itself, there is a way to control this points? On the example below, this is a simple letter A from the Montserrat family but it shows a clear example of what I want to do. Here the Letter A is not closed, if I move the curves points around it will create a hole on the letter, so I want to create 2 points on the straight line to merge then to the curved shape, then delete the points inside of the shape to not have them lying around. What is the best approach? Cheers!
  13. It could be possible to have preset for the Equation filter as we have for Procedural? It is quite annoying to re-insert a formula every time when we open the Equation filter. We have to open a file where we have stored our equation and then to copy & paste it in the Equation filter. Waste of time...Much easier for us to open Equation filter and from the Preset panel we just pick it up. Maybe some basic Preset made by Affinty team will be welcome. (such as waves equation, shape equation, wobbly equation, and so on) Thx a lot.
  14. Easily take Affinity Photo shapes to the next level.

  15. Hi! When I'm working on UI, I want to quickly copy and paste or replace selected nodes inside the same shape or another shape. I know I can do it with a compound object but it's a long process when you just want to isolate a group of nodes and turn them into a new curves path or paste/replace on another.
  16. Observation In Affinity Designer there are multiple input options using the modifier key for shapes, these include: Holding shift to constrain to proportions (square, circle) Holding ctrl to scale the shape from the centre out Hold alt to ignore snapping Hold spacebar to move the shape (this is not in the tool description at the bottom of the window though). Shape and selection feature parity.mp4 Expectation However, in Designer, I may expect this to work for selection tools as well, whereas it currently does not. As you can see from the video, while using the same sequence of actions, there are things I expect to be able to do from using the shapes tool, that I cannot replicate with selection tools. Proposal My proposal for how it ought to behave is listed in italics below the observation of actual behaviour. Shift does constrain proportions (square, circle) This decision means you cannot use shift to add to a selection. In Photoshop, holding shift allows you to do both, first you hold shift to add to a selection (mitigating the need to reach to the toolbar for this) and after the initial click, you can release or press shift again to constrain the shape if needed. Shift constrain selection.mp4 Ctrl does not scale from the centre > it moves the selection with ctrl + LMB However, upon the initial creation of the selection window, with the selection drawn out, I don't see a reason why holding ctrl afterwards would not constrain the selection to be created from the centre. Alt does not ignore snapping > it subtracts from the selection (which is perfectly fine the way it is) Spacebar does not move the selection that is currently created This should be added to make more refined selections possible and to ensure continuity between the tools.
  17. Received a PSD files, it happens to have box rectangles with uniform rounded corners, it might be related to that? Also gradient fills properties show up. Let me know if these are actually bugs I should be mentioning here? or is it to be expected for the time being while compatibility is being worked out? Latest AP, 1.10.14 RectangleBugs.psd
  18. Hi, Im struggling to add points to paths I have made, In Illustrator you have the + & - tools to accomplish this. Is there a simple way in Affinity I'm sure there is a very simple solution to this,
