  1. Hello guys. When I use Inpainting Brush Tool it does literally nothing. Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong? I haven't changed anything in the tool's options. At least intentionally.
  2. Hello People!!, I´m just starting in Affinity Designer. I hope you can help me. Is there a tool to calculate the bisector of an angle in a triangle? Thanks!!
  3. I want a shortcut for this feature options: _ Additional Suggestion: If you click using the Node Tool, it could convert the node mode to the next one in a cycle conversion order. or make that a new tool: "Node converter"
  4. I found a YouTube tutorial using the Contour Tool on text. When they use it, there's a smooth transition around all the letters. When I apply it, the outline distorts. I can fix it by either changing the view or select Bake Appearance. Is there a preference setting I'm missing?
  5. I see in different topics here the demand for the Step and Repeat tool found in InDesign. Glad to see there are others than me that misses this terrific tool. Replies refer to the duplicate tool and the alignment tool but even though they sort of can do what the step and repeat tools does, I just cant see them as handy. They need several steps, copying layers, clicking ctrl-x for each copy needed an so fourth. And maybe the biggest disadvantage: What if you want to adjust the spacing between your items. Then you have to undo all steps and start from the beginning. With the Step and repeat tool, you just change the spacing value and everything re-renders. You can easily experiment with different values until you are satisfied. Current Step and Repeat tool That brings me to my Feature request. To add the Step and repeat tool into Affinity Software would be nice but why not expand the tool while your at it. The Step and repeat tool in InDesign offers a way to repeat an item as many times you want horizontally or vertically or both. You set the step value for the x- and y-axis and it renders out your items. Nice and easy. If you change the step values, it renders your items again. A perfect way to experiment with different values. New feature Request: Step and repeat along path What if it also was possible to align your items along a circle. You add number of copies and chose circle and set the radius value of the circle. An option here could also be "distrubute evenly along path" so that it automatically set the right spacing between items for a full circle. An other option could be to set the rotation value 0-360 if you dont want a full circle. With this tool it would be easy to for instance make an analog clocks minute och 5-minute marks. If you add an option to make your items rotate along path it would be perfect for the clocks minute lines so the lines also correctly angles along the path as expected. While where at it, why don't we make it poosible to align items along any path. Square, triangle of freeform or whatever. You can do it with text today, why not make it possible to do with other objects as well. More options There are many more transform options that could be added here. I thought of a few. One is a scale curve where the items scales accordingly to the scale curve as they are added. Another transform option would be color change after preset colors or a color gradient. Finally i have added a few sketches to illustrate examples of how this tool could be used. If you like my idea, please comment.
  6. I am wondering if any further improvements are planned for the crop tool? One trick I enjoyed from PS is proportionally cropping by holding the "alt" key, I noticed that as of betas 1.5.x that this is still not possible. Hopefully the gif demonstrates what I am referring to. Thanks
  7. Is there any chance of a tool like puppet warp being implemented like in photoshop and illustrator? This could be very useful to edit illustrations in preparation for animation and just general adjustments to shapes. I used this tool a lot when I had adobe software.
  8. I posted the following thread 3 years ago but not a single person until today advised me to post that topic in this thread, claiming that no one from Serif diligently reads this forum such that my post was sure to have been overlooked these 3 years. Seems odd to me, but fine. Here it is: I would advise Serif to just move that thread into this thread. I would prefer that since I don't want to lose all the supportive posts in that thread. For truly, it is more than just me who wants that dropper tool added to Affinity Photo. Thanks.
  9. Hello everyone, I'm new in affinity photo and I try to find on Youtube tutorials or here on the forum how to perspective crop an object, keeping the aspect ratio of that object. I have to crop some paintings from photo and if I use the perspective crop tool it lengthens my result. I do something wrong or this future is not available in Affinity yet? I attach 2 examples. Normal one is cropped in Photoshop, second in Affinity. I really like Affinity Photo but there are some future missing, or I didn't discover it yet.
  10. There os a selection to Vector tool yet in the newest Affinity Designer for mac os?
  11. Attempting to crop a photo this evening when I found that it wouldn't work. The double-headed arrow appeared and could be moved about but it didn't move the grid and wouldn't allow a crop. My husband had exactly the same issue with a different photo about an hour earlier. He has a Mac and I am using Windows 10. We were both using graphics tablets. Closing the photo down and reopening allowed the crop. But then it happened a couple more times with other photos. Prior to that I had no problems with cropping. I have just tried cropping again and now it is working. Baffled. I saw a previous post on the same issue and tried Reset-ing the crop tool but that made no difference. Any ideas? Thanks
  12. With my free SVG Calendar Tool (https://svg-tools.mensch-mesch.com/calendar/) you can create different types of SVG Calendar Templates (Scalable Vector Graphic) for all Affinity products. This tool is not perfect but it will possibly safe a lot of time. Hope you like this simple tool Keep on drawin' Norbert
  13. Morning, Am I missing something here, or can I not snap slices to the grid?! I have created a slice, turned snap to grid on, and now am trying to conform that slice to the grid, but it's no snappy. Pretty much all snap options are on, but I just can't snap it! Cheers Wayne
  14. Crop many digitized photos for playback on TV. Format 16: 9 instead of unrestricted desired as a default setting at start. what to do? Please help.
  15. Bug in Affinity Photo 1.10.4? In Affinity photo I want to add the unsharp mask tool to the toolsbox. I do this according to the instruction and the new tool is placed between the other tools. After using and saving the photo I open a new raw file, edit this and come back into persona and notice that the added tool is no longer visible between the available tools! What's going wrong? regards Cees
  16. This is a feature that has likely already been requested to be added, but I searched the forums and didn't notice anyone posting this same sort of request. In CC 2019, a REALLY nice gradient feature got added to Illustrator called the Freeform Gradient. The way you use it is you add different points for the gradient to follow. You can make them different colors, make gradient paths using points, and even adjust how much those colors spread from those points. Unfortunately, Designer doesn't have this feature yet and I would really like to see it implemented soon because it seems like such a nice way to make gradients. There are also gradient meshes, but it seems like Designer doesn't have these either, even though these seem a bit harder to work with on average. I don't use Illustrator currently, but I have in the past and I think Affinity Designer lacks some of the features that Illustrator does. There are a couple more things that I can think of that I don't see an option for in Designer, but there is one for in Illustrator. I can make 1 or 2 separate posts about those, though.
  17. Just thought it'd be nice to have an eraser tool in the vector/curves persona. Being able to erase part of a vector shape is really nice feature when you don't want to be doing everything manually by using the pen tool. Thanks!
  18. Is there any way to set the Move tool "arrow" tool (v) as default instead of the hand tool or view tool (H). Normally you just use space bar to move around using the hand tool, for easy work flow you want to be able to edit right away when opening a file etc. and for that the select tool off course needs to be default (exactly as in Photo shop)
  19. Hi, I tried to find solution but couldnt. For other tools you can go to Edit > Defaults > Save - for selection tool it doesnt work I want to have default settings for Refine - not have to manually change it each time and switch off that weird "matte edges" option (who even uses that) Is there a way to have default setting for Refine Selection tool? Same as per my photo?
  20. Wouldn't it better to use the same name for both the Gradient tool(in Photo) and the Fill tool(in Designer)? They are the same tool yet they have different name. I feel it's confusing.
  21. I apologize if this topic has already been raised, but I have no idea what terminology to search on, other than "ruler tool tracking." Some of the tools in Affinity Photo track on the rulers so I can see what coordinates I'm at in real time as I move the tool on the image area. Magnifier, mesh warp, rectangle tool, pen, etc., all track on the rulers, which is great. But knowing the position of the eraser, paint brush, burn brush, and other brush tools is very important too, yet none of these tools track on the rulers. It would greatly speed up some actions if I knew precisely where my brush tools are positioned at any point as I move them on the image. Is there a reason the center point of brush tool coordinates aren't shown on the rulers? Is it possible to have their coordinates appear on the rulers? Have I overlooked an option that will turn on brush tracking in the rulers?
  22. serait-il possible de retrouver l'outil "grille déformante" comme dans Page Plus. Il manque aussi dans Affinity Designer
  23. I'm a new user, I just purchased Publisher, Photo, and Designer. I've looked through many tutorials, asked the web, and still can't find an answer to my problem. Where is my text tool? I think it's supposed to be at the bottom of my Toolbar (vertical bar on far left). But it (they, both text took and artistic text tool) aren't there. I'm in Photo. O, for a manual.
  24. I will be happy if you could add the "Shape Builder" tool to Affinity Designer like in Adobe illustrator it will be very helpful. This feature will go with Affinity Designer to the next level. I hope that you will take my request into consideration. Thank you
