  1. Hello. I couldn't find a direct answer to this. Is there a way to sculpt a pencil line in the desktop version of Affinity designer. I love using this feature on the iPad and find the Pencil tool basically useless to me without it. Thanks,
  2. What is this menu/icons for? I'm using AD for iPad…
  3. My problem is that after doing some projects in the newley aquired AP Workbook I now find that my paint brush tool is jagged rather than round. I have looked to find a way to reset it back to i9ts normal setting but with no succes. Its probably simple, but for the life of me I can't seem to find a solution.
  4. I guess this has been requested before, but the fact that this very helpful tool is not yet in Affinity Designer, makes me feel envious of my workmates using Adobe Illustrator. I'm not talking about the graph, but the tool that gives you the capability to adjust the width of strokes at a selected point. Can you guys confirm if you are working on it, please? I would get very excited!
  5. Update: I went to Microsoft and tried it. You can use the vector brush tool with the surface pen in the same “drawing” motion that you can use on the iPad. I’ve been debating purchasing an iPad Pro vs. a Surface Pro 6...I was messing around with the app on the iPad Pro at the apple store and one thing I liked a lot is you can use the Apple Pencil to essentially “draw” your vectors through the vector brush tool. Is there the ability to do this on Microsoft surface pro with the surface pen with the pc version of affinity designer? Or is it only for the iPad app? Thanks!
  6. Hello, everyone. I'm new here and to Designer (for the iPad). Currently, I'm working on my first inked piece using this app and am having some trouble with the Vector Brush Tool. So here's what I've done: 1. I opened a new file... 2. Selected the Vector Brush Tool... 3. Outlined the drawing... Here's the problem: 1. I can't seem to adjust the pressure of the strokes by dragging the curve 2. When I do drag the curve and let go, the curve jumps back to normal (even if it does move, the stroke remains unaffected) ***See last photo*** Is there something I'm missing? Thanks
  7. Problem: With my fire fighting pre-plan work I need to carefully draw one of 4 colors over top of property images from Google Earth. I also need to select various pre-made objects like Gas and Propane symbols located on 40 layers. 1 - When I try to precisely begin to draw a yellow fence line for instance, too often the tiny pause I make while carefully positioning my stylus gets interpreted as an automatic color picker and my yellow color disappears. I have to reselect the particular yellow all over again, and again. Very frustrating and needlessly slows my work down! 2. A similar thing happens when I select an object on a layer like a fire hydrant to relocate. Suddenly a whole different layer might get selected and moved accidentally which can ruin the map. Ultimate Fix: Create a preference menu where each of the tools can have that option turned off, or the hold and pause time for auto/option can be adjusted Easy Fix: I'm sure this can be done in just an hour or two and would make a massive improvement to the interface. Just add one preference for now globally where a user can select how long or short the delay is which evokes the auto/option for Affinity in general. A fast or slow slider or just a drop down- 0.1 sec, 0.2 sec... The auto/option trigger delay is already part of your programing. You just need to add a small routine where the user can change the timing. cheers and I really hope this happens soon. Affinity is perfect otherwise! btate
  8. First of all, you guys are amazing. Your programmers and designers have done an incredible job on building Affinity. Look like after 15 years of retouching in Photoshop I am finally going to switch because you have the tools I wanted Photoshop to have but never had, more humane and thoughtful approach to the overall design and much better performance. Now onto important requests. All these are not just vanity features but those that I came across using very often during my retouching works. - add an aspect ratio shortcut Alt or Ctrl to image cropping. I know you have a dropdown, but it doesn't help much. Choosing the right crop and composition is often a multistep process, adjusting it with an aspect ration, then correction a bit without it the on/off etc. It has to be easy to use shortcut to make it flexible. - Path blur. A complex feature, I know. something that blurs along a curve or several parallel or converging curves with adjustable speed setting on ends and along the curve. Very important for automotive photography retouching. - Same but an elliptic curve with multiple adjustable ellipses. - please add blending to dust and scratches. Right now the results are pretty rough just like in photoshop. Could be something similar to the healing algorithm, where the texture is taken from the surrounding areas, or at least some simple pixel blend to remove the rough edges and artifacts around the remove dust/scratches. - Basic metadata edit. Title, description, keywords, copyright. It's important to have it within the same software. I tried to use separate software for that but that makes it a two step process. Photoshop's metadata editor is fine but is missing spellchecking. Opening the GPS location with google maps in a browser would be handy too. Easy to implement I think. Please consider. - an option to have the layer on/off checkbox on left Thanks a lot. Keep up the great work. Will recommend you to all my colleagues. Alex
  9. I have made a numbers spreadsheet which calculates column widths for creating guides using the guide manager as a short term fix until the feature is implemented. Currently it works for 2-6 columns. I think that should work for most people's uses but it would be fairly trivial to edit to allow for more columns. You have to input some key data for each layout: Page width (crucial info for obvious reasons) Inner margin Outer margin (these three together then calculate the useable width within the margins) Number of columns you require (up to max 6) Gutter width I thought it would be helpful to others so you can download using the link below. Please use and edit it as you wish. calculating columns_to share.numbers Robin
  10. I would like the ability to control opacity from within the pencil tool— like an rgba set up. I would also like to be able to set the tool as a multiply (or other) type to quickly layer shapes and colors. As of writing I’m not sure if this is possible without going into the layer menu to adjust opacity and layer types.
  11. I don't exactly know how to formulate my question, so I hope it has not been answered already. The problem I face is in regards to the pen tool. I've drawn a clef using the pen tool by creating a s hape (not a line, because it was easier to modify the thickness of the stroke). But now the points where the shape overlaps, are rendered transparent, with no fill. Obviously not what I want. Is there a way to fix this? I've attached two screenshots, one with outline mode and one normal with the node tool and the shape selected. Thanks for your help
  12. Look like the gradient tool can't use document swatches for choose color and instead only use blended colors. Is there a way to use the document swatches? I did something wrong?
  13. 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!
  14. I accidentally closed some of the tools on the right side. How do I restore them to default? Also if I wanted to change the tools how would I do that? Thanks in advance!
  15. The Artistic Text Tool does not display Emoji characters. Please add this to the ATT, thanks Please see also the attached video, maybe I do something wrong, if so, I appreciate any help and hints. Artistic Text Tool 2018-05-25 09-14-54.mp4 Cheers, Roland
  16. Any body found a better equivalent to using the beaker tool to pick my colors, like a color pallet tool. Iv had affinity photo for about 4 months and until a couple of weeks ago I didn't think about it but now it sounds like a smart idea. Please help as in a guide... iv checked the new board and I didn't find any help there.
  17. When on the latest version of Affinity Photo (1.6.4) the app crashes when you use the pen tool and when you make more than 40 ish points. Steps to reproduce: - Open a photo - Try to cutout something but make a minimum of 40ish points when cutting something out. - It should crash instantly
  18. It's happen to some converted fonts. Try my file. Geometry_Add_Bug.afdesign

    Pen tool crash

    When is the pen tool gonna be fixed because every time i want to cut somthing out it crashes? I cant do the things i want anymore with affinity. Pls fix this fast. Thanks!
  20. Please, add just a simple option to stop toggling between tools I just used when I press the same hotkey twice, please! Its just too much annoying!
  21. Request: please explain the reason behind the "Tool Toggle" function in Affinity Designer. It the reason, speed and efficiency? (that's the only reason that I can think of) But it doesn't work because, to my knowledge, there is no paradigm in digital (software) or non-digital (by hand) layout design in which "reaching for" a tool, has the possibility of returning one-or-the-other tool. I am interested in understanding the reasoning behind the "Tool Toggle" function, to understand the implications of requesting it be removed or provided optionally, in Affinity Designer. Thank you so much for your excellent software, as well as your customer assistance.
  22. So I'm trying to use a few triangles on a larger triangle, using compounds to try and flatten the vertices of a triangle, this works well on 2 vertices but leaves an artefact on the 3rd, the screenshots should show it and nothing I've tried so far has gotten rid of it; editing curves, making another triangle, etc. I should also mention that this artefact remains after I export it into PNG format for example
  23. 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.
  24. Hello, When using the fill tool, it seems impossible to pick colors from your image outside of switching to a different tool. This seems like a very basic and obvious functionality, am I missing something about the usage of the tool? Pixel artists will use this a lot. Photoshop handles this really well, similarly to how it works in Affinity with the pen tool. Press ALT during tool usage to pick a color. At the moment, the ALT key for the Fill tool in Affinity seems to have no use. Adding this would make pixel artists lives a lot easier Thoughts?
