  1. Hello- If this topic is covered elsewhere I apologize. I've been looking for my first graphics/drawing tablet to use with Affinity Designer while keeping it under $100. Are there any that you suggest? Is AD compatible with anything that works with MAC? Your help would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Dear all, following the recommendation of my friend, I now consider myself a proud owner of Affinity Photo. However, having just started using it, I have already run into a problem -- and it's a biggie for me. My drawing tablet (GAOMON M106K) doesn't work right with it. I can move the cursor with my pen but when I run it over the drawing surface, no line is drawn even though the brush function is activated and I'm pressing the button on the pen. It's only when I hover slightly over the drawing surface that a line is drawn, which doesn't make drawing easy, to say the least. The same happens when using other tools in the software. How can I draw lines (or use any other tool) with my pen while actually physically touching the tablet with it? (When using other software like GIMP, it works just fine, so it must have something to do with Affinity Photo.) I'm looking forward to any help and hope that you have a great day. Cheers, Jenny. Edit: Whoops, I forgot to mention. I am using the 64 bit version of Windows 10. Edit 2: In finally solved it on my own -- I had to enable the 'experimental' highly precise tablet input in the settings menu. Maybe it helps other newbies like me out there!
  3. Hi: Is there any way I can use a Huinonn1060 Plus with Affintiy Photo? Are there special drivers required? Generic drivers? Temp work arounds? thank you Donald
  4. Hi - I’m a print photographer, primarily, and have just discovered Affinity Photo for the iPad Pro. I’m considering my workflow process and would like to move away from editing on the desktop as the Mac pencil is just so amazing and easy to work with. Does anyone have experience editing and then printing strictly off of Affinity Photo tablet? Curious of the quality (are the prints true to color/expectation?) and ease of sizing, etc. Any thoughts or stories of success / failures would be extremely appreciated. Thanks, Trxr
  5. I recently purchased Photo from the Windows Store and frankly there was one big disappointment: it has major useability problems in Tablet Mode (in my case on a Surface Book 1st Generation). Rightly or wrongly we have come to associate Store apps with Tablet Mode, so it comes as a bit of a shock to find one is just an old fashioned desktop app! On the Surface Book there is basically no ergonomic way of using the keyboard/touchpad at the same time as the Surface Pen and losing the latter is a huge bummer for a graphics app! After getting over the initial disappointment, I did reflect that a couple of relatively minor improvements would make it a lot more usable: 1. UI Scale settings. The app is much more touch friendly if the UI is set to 300% (rather than the recommended 200%). But this is global and wrecks other apps which are scaled properly in the first place. So what is needed is a UI scale setting within the app. On Windows 10, there should be two settings, one for Desktop mode and another for Tablet mode with automatic switching between the two. 2. On-Screen Modifier Icons. The keys that are used as pointer modifiers (shift, alt, ctrl) should have on-screen icons to make up for not having a physical keyboard. These could usefully be ranged at the bottom of the toolbar convenient to the left hand with the pen held in the right.I suggest these work in two ways: either touch and hold them like a virtual keyboard key; or, on machines were touch and pen are distinguishable, it should also be possible to touch the icon with the pen and then the shift state would be toggled until the pen is tapped elsewhere on the screen.
  6. I'm on macOS High Sierra 10.13.1. I have an early 2013 15-inch Retina Macbook Pro connected to a Intuos Pro small tablet. I use the brush tool in Affinity Designer to doodle simple drawings for animated videos. I've seen serious lag in the Brush tool performance since upgrading to the 1.6.0 version. I pick up the brush tool, try to draw something with my Wacom pen and there is a 1-2 second lag before the brush hits the screen. This sounds like a small thing but when you're drawing 100-200 images for a video, it quickly becomes very annoying. Basically, I need to start every drawing 3-5 times before I the brush "lands" the right way on the screen. I don't have this issue with using the latest version of Illustrator. How do I optimize the performance for my system/use case? Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
  7. Using Huion Q11K, now it works fine in the Huion calibration program, but there is no pressure sensitivity in Photo. I have set the brush property to depend on pressure and tried fiddling with the curves too. Even with default x=y there is no sensitivity. Velocity kinda works sometimes. Further, any click (even after selecting another tool, say, hand,) instantly changes it to the eraser. The same click works normally otherwise the rest of the time. Any help appreciated. (AP 1.6.6 on macOS 10.13.1)
  8. I have an off brand graphics tablet, Turcom, that has worked and still works fine for all applications on my PC except for Affinity Photo. It basically just acts like a mouse with sensitivity, but it does not work in Affinity Photo at all. I am currently testing the newest version of Affinity Photo and Photoshop Elements 2018 and my tablet works fine in Photoshop Elements, but I really like the equirectangular perspective available in Affinity Photo so I would like to get this working. I'm glad I tested the software first, and really want to like the Affinity Photo software, but I cannot buy it if my tablet won't work with it. I looked for tablet/pen calibration settings or anything that would allow me some configuration options for getting my tablet/pen working but I can't seem to find anything. Any help would be appreciated! Joel
  9. I just bought a Macbook Pro 15 inch with trackpad. I would really like to use the big pad with a pen well designing with affinity photo and affinity designer. Inklet software with a Pogo pen would be perfect! Does Affinity support that technology? Mahalos in Advance Steve
  10. I'm a total noob with both Affinity Designer (purchased yesterday) and my Wacom Intuos tablet, but as I tried to doodle a bit, I found it more than a bit frustrating that I would need to reach for my mouse, then find and click incredibly small buttons to do something as simple as, say, switch to a different colour or brush. It occurred to me how incredibly useful it would be to be able to use the off hand to give context-sensitive commands on something like my Android tablet. This could all but eliminate the need to reach for the mouse or keyboard! Is there anything like that available on the market, or being planned?
  11. I've been using both Affinity Photo and Designer for a few years now, both with an old WACOM bamboo create which has served me pretty well (no outstanding issues whatsoever!), but I just got a brand new 2048 sensitive tablet as a gift (Adesso Cyber Tablet T12), and I've been having a hell of a time trying to figure out what is going wrong with the sensitivity settings in Photo. I've gone through the Tablet driver settings (all the most recent) and the sensitivity is definitely working on the Tablet itself, but despite updating everything to the most recent versions for both my computer and Photo, the pen just doesn't register the pressure sensitivity properly. While it does register pressure, it's so weak that I have to legitimately push down to get any lines out of a brush with pressure turned on, despite the sensitivity being turned on to maximum through the driver set up. Non pressure sensitive brushes draw and track fine, and I can lightly tap to select menu items without any issues, but for some reason the brushes themselves just will not work properly. And this is the same with Affinity default brushes as well as custom Photo and Photoshop brushes. I've gone through everything to try and find a way to boost sensitivity to the brushes, but I haven't found anything. Is this a hardware-to-software issue I'm just going to have to hope gets solved at some point, or is there anything I'm missing that would help?
  12. This will sound crazy to some but I have an Apple Pencil and find it much less efficient than a tablet due to the ability to hover over an area. I guess it’s become second nature after using graphics tablets for years. I saw that Procreate has third party tablet support and wondered if it might be possible to integrate it with Affinity Photo too. It’s great to be further back from the screen too. I have the tiny intuos photo pen and touch which is small enough to carry anywhere.
  13. After working a few minutes in an illustration with my Wacom Intuos Pro Medium tablet, I was unable to select tools or menu options -- anyway, the software keeps working with the last tool selected. I had to quit AD using ALT-F4. The issue occurs the same way with new and old files. If I use my Logitech mouse the problem does not occur (apparently). Had to downgrade to version 1.6.1.93. Hope the new version gets fixed soon.
  14. Hi, I'm learning some digital painting techniques and hoped to use Affinity Designer for my work. However, I'm experiencing errors when using my pen tablet and light pressure during faster work. Basically, it seems as if: 1. Clicks are registering and therefore leaving single circles/stroke shapes at random times 2. The drawing isn't starting at the beginning of applying pressure, but rather, after a short amount of movement. Here's a video: http://take.ms/D21u2 Can anyone shed some light on this issue? I'm not experiencing the problem in Photoshop or Krita. Thank you.
  15. Hey! Hope you all are doing well! First Thanks for all that you all do and are working towards! Thanks for providing the community with a great and constantly improving program. After using Affinity Designer, there are a few things from utilizing a tablet and the program that I think would benefit user experience and workflow. - Tablet Options When utilizing a tablet. Having some availability options to change and set keys with the tablets through the app would be great. Also, shape/pressure options within the application as well. I suppose more enhanced support when it comes to tablets. - Expanding stroke. When utilizing this, it seems to over compensate on the strokes causing bigger unproportioned (To the original stroke) shapes and makes it difficult to combine/merge the layers to one full layer. -Dividing shapes. When using this, If there could be an option with how many duplicates it makes. It divides and cuts out all the parts, but it does it by doubling up the parts and i end up having to shift around layers to get it to its original state to start working again. Hope this one makes sense. Ill attach examples. Again thanks for what you all do and are developing there at Serif Labs!
  16. Hello Affinity, I'm so glad to see an app like this in the marketplace. However, I can't use it for digital painting and illustration yet because of one MAJOR missing feature: Tablet pressure controlled opacity with the paint brush. As it stands you can set pressure on brush size and flow (among other things) but for digital painters opacity is the most important pressure control you can have. I'd say it's pretty darn important for retouchers as well. Please add this feature soon, because as of now Affinity Photo is unusable for me. Thanks!
  17. Hi all. After using affinity on the IPad I decided to buy it also on the tablet (SURFACE PRO 4) Now I cannot find how to rotate the canvas with my hand. Is this possible? Please advise. Henkbrwr
  18. 1.How can I get a pen brush to be tapered on both ends. This is a pen from ArtRage. In the attached gif. 2. How can I get pen pressure to change the size of the brush? Light pressure thin line heavier pressure thicker line. Thanks.
  19. In Version 1.6.2.97 and 1.6.2.98 i detected this behaviour.
  20. I have a Yiynova tablet (an MVP10UHD, if that proves helpful) as the second monitor to the logical "right" of my primary display. I'm on Windows 10. For some reason, the pen always registers on the far right of the Affinity window. The cursor is in the correct location with regards to the pen otherwise (such as dragging selection boxes in Windows, for example). I did have some driver issues with it recently as a result of the semi-recent large update Microsoft did in the autumn, though those seem to be generally resolved now. To me it looks like an additional offset is getting applied, like both the driver and software are attempting to offset the pen by the width of my primary monitor (which is 1920x1080; the tablet's resolution is 1280x800). This isn't an immediate concern, but I do hope for a fix at some point in the future. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help resolve this issue!
  21. Hi guys, It's probably been answered before but I cant find the answer. Does Affinity have a way of connecting both apps from iPad to Mac and allowing you to edit using the Apple Pencil? I basically want to use my iPad as a Wacom tablet whilst editing with affinity. I do already know about the apps you can buy to mirror the desktop but that's not what I'm looking for. After a few weeks with the iPad app, I'm sad to say I just don't like it like I thought I would. Thank you!
  22. Since I'd never even used a graphics tablet, Santa was kind enough to bring me a Huion New 1060 Plus . Everything seems fine except that when I take the pen out of range of the tablet both AP and AD switch to the erase brush. Any idea what I'm doing wrong, or is there something I need to configure?
  23. Using a Windows 10 tablet, how do you do an Alt-Click action?
  24. I have this small but quite annoying problem when using a Wacom Intuos 4 medium pen tablet in Affinity Photo When I do something - like creating a brushstroke or moving a handle on a tool etc. - there is a slight "lag" or delay before it actually starts to work. It's only a split second but enough to disturb the workflow. If I put the pen down and wait a short while, it will activate and work as expected. I have tested the tablet in an old Photoshop version and in Wacoms own configuration software, and in both cases it works fine and as expected. No lag at all. Has anybody experienced this problem or maybe has an explanation or even a solution :-) I am on a Windows 7 machine and newest version of Affinity Photo. Thanks Best regards Jes
