  1. Clone tool, crop tool. color finder & perhaps others not working properly on new Dell 5770 laptop with 8th gen. i7 processor. Have erased and re-installed Affinity to no avail. Have cropped and saved image then reselected cropped image ctrlC and ctrl V to new document and original un-cropped image appears, from where I don't know, opening as flattend image solves problem. When selected clone area is used the marker for selected area jumps to entirely different position on image or disappears completely. Color selector on paint brus tools simply doesn't work. any workarounds?
  2. If me using CorelDraw, coloring Object is very easy use smart Fill or Live paint bucket in Illustrator. in Affinity Designe takes a lot of time for coloring NEED CLOSING NODE, i am work with Pen tool mode Line.
  3. I am currently using version 1.6.5.61 on my iPad I make a selection using the Sampled Colour Tool then tick the box at the bottom. I then go to the Polygon Marquee Tool (on subtract) to cut out any unwanted selections. On the first pass t subtracts perfectly. However, if I have missed something and go back it does not seem to want to subtract any more. Please advise - thanks
  4. Hello, tools remain on top of the Finder window when opening a file (no issue when saving.. then it remain in the back as it should). Thanks
  5. Hello, Thanks to the team for this great tool that is Affinity designer ! This feature ( request ? ) could somehow be understood as the equivalent of brushes in Affnity Photo... The triangle tool and others ( Trapezoïd / Diamond etc...) are neat and really practical ! is there a possibility ( or any plans in the future ) to have an acces to build / add / customize other tools by myself and to add them to the UI? o- suppose i want to create a "logic gate diagram", i would have to use AND, OR, XOR ( and others ) gate symbols. - i could create a tool for each symbol - add handles to customize it ( radius, height etc.. ) as seen as the little red dot. - the description of each tool is a file that would be imported in Affinity designer. Many thanks for your consideration, for taking the time to read my request, and for this great App !
  6. When selecting View, Customise Tools, there are only 6 tools available for selection to add to the tool bar: View, Zoom, Red Eye Removal, Blemish Removal, Overlay paint, Overlay Erase, Overlay Gradient, Crop, White Balance. For example the Clone tool is not available to add to the left tool bar. Running version 1.6.6 on High Sierra 10.13.2
  7. Hello, would it be possible to limit input from tools, specifically the brush tool, to only stylus input? That was we could freely place our hands on the screen, pan, zoom, etc. without the fear of making marks. As it is now, whenever I'm drawing or paining, I have to go back and cleanup marks made by my hand. Thanks!
  8. Hi, As a long time Adobe Flash user, I'm used to make quick selections and modifications on vector shapes just by selecting a portion with the default cursor (see image). Also in Adobe Flash not every shape is automatically placed in its own seperate layer, instead shapes are automatically added to existing layer or shape. Vector shapes are rather added or withdrawn depending on their color, shapes of the same color are merged into one, while shapes of different colors are divided. I know this way of editing is not for everyone but I would very much like to have the option in Affinity Designer. regards, Ivo van de Grift Grootlicht Interactive Design
  9. The creative guys here at Serif Labs knocked up keyboard shortcuts cheat sheets - hope you find them useful! Now updated PDFs for 1.4 Affinity Photo Affinity Designer Both together
  10. I often use the color picker to touch up my coloring and once I click on the Paint Brush, the color always switches to the other color... (the two circles under the Color tab) Having to constantly switch back to the color I just picked is obviously annoying and I don't understand why this happens. If I just picked a color I obviously want to use the one I just picked, not the one I had to use 5 minutes ago... How can I fix this?
  11. Hello! New user here. I've combed the internet and the preferences and I can't seem to find anything that stops me from drawing lines all over my document with my fingers! I saw something about a "Touch for Gestures Only" option in the tools pane, but I dont see it on mine. Using Win10 on a Surfacebook with the latest version of Affinity Photo. Thanks! Edit: I am aware of the "Disable touch input when pen is in use" Windows option, but that's not stopping me from making marks when I go to zoom and pan with fingers!
  12. Am I right when you dock tools to the left access strip in Affinity Photo these are a destructive action,as they do not nest under the current photo selected.They seem to react different from those you select from the layer panel.If so what is the point of this option,is to speed up the editing process.

    Selections Seem Buggy

    Hi there, I am using windows 10 with the latest version of affinity photo (bought it yesterday). I am trying to make a selection of the image I have attached, fences on a white background. This should be fairly easy to select...I just can't seem to select it properly. I have checked and the layer is pixel and I have selected it. But when I use the selection brush tool it goes here there and everywhere. It is as though it cannot differentiate between the very contrasted background and fence? There are no other layers in the project at this time either. Not sure if this is just a little bug or not, but I know when I tried the trial version a few months back the selection brush tool worked great! Would really appreciate any tips! Thanks, Billie
  14. Hi guys, new to the forum and not sure if this is the right place to post or if there's another post like this. I've looked but couldn't find it. At the moment there's a shortcut to select a color off a layer but it feels very odd from a user's perspective. I see the color change in the color slider/wheel when I select a color but it doesn't automatically apply. I'm not sure if I am missing something here, but when you use the eyedropper tool in Illustrator, you select the layer you want to change the color, use the eyedropper tool and select something else and it automatically changes it to that color. Is that something that can be done for Affinity Designer too? I just see the color changing but it doesn't apply to my selected layer. Thanks!
  15. Hi May I please request any information regarding using tools across persona. I would like to smudge a vector image. I would like to use smudge tool on a set of vector strokes. Please help me with any tips. Thanks Vel. diwali_17.afdesign
  16. Hi people. I ever use adobe illustrator for my job, but the affinity designer showed a incredible software and a great promise. But unfortunately i've been missing some tools I did not find in the Affinity Designer. Could they help me know if these tools exist in Affinity? Tool 1: Blend Tool. In the adobe illustrato exist the possibility to blend forms and linde, creating interpolation between the forms. Is there something similar in the Affinity Designer ? Tool 2: Aling to Key Object Tool 3: Width Tool In the Illustrator existe the possibility to thicken and taper the lines in the drawing. On the Affinity Designer, the only option I found for this would be the pressure panel. Is there the possibility to control this effect straight in line? At first these are my main doubts. Thank you to anyone who can help me! Fernando Constant
  17. Hello everyone, new to the forum and have used Affinity Design in a very basic way for some time now, and I can't seem to figure out how to cut out part of a shape. I have 2 letters surrounded by a circle to make a logo, but want to cut out part of the circle so one of the letters has space around it. I have attached a picture with a circled "W" that shows what I want my logo to do where one part of the w doesn't connect to the circle. Then you will see my logo with 2 red circles where I want to separate the white circle from the end tail of the letter b. I am ignorant about a lot of the graphic design terminology so please forgive me. I just don't know what to do.
  18. Recently I have not been able to see the document that I am working on or any of the following at the same time: * Toolbar * Tools * Context Toolbar *Studio I can tab to toggle the UI on and off. When UI is off and I can see the document if I use the View menu to see any of the above then the document disappears from view. I have tried resetting all the default but this does not solve the problem. I have the same problem with the beta version. I am running Windows 10.and experienced other problems (with restarting) after Windows updates were installed on 12-13 September; the latest Windows update has fixed this.. This may be a coincidence but AP worked fine before (I am not sure of the exact date but certainly after 1 September). After the Windows updates I did not try AP until a couple of days ago. Have I accidentally changed something? Has anyone else ever had the same problem? Update 30/09/2017 I have found the cause of the problem as the settings for AMD Radeon™ R5 Graphics card. The drivers for this card were updated with the Windows updates and the new driver appears to have either caused the problem or changed the settings. The setting for the Affinity Photo now default to "Unassigned". If I change these to "Power Saving" the problem disappears when I restart AP but reappear if I select any other setting.
  19. Hello, do I understand this in the right manner? All the features and tools of Affinity Photo for the desktop are also available in the iPad variant? So I could see with the test version for the desktop, whether the iPad variant is suitable for me? Greetings from Berlin Gabi
  20. Hi, I'd like to request the possibility to assign to each shortcut not only the letter or number, but also the modifier. For exemple, now if I press ALT while I'm drawing a Bézier curve, I can move one of the handles freely to create a sharp corner. I'd like to be able to do that by pressing SHIFT instead of ALT. Also, to translate and object in a straight line, I must hold SHIF, what if I want to use CTRL? For a second sub-request, I'd like to ask if it's possible to assign more keys to shortcuts, for exemple, if I'm using whatever tool and I press ESC, it could give me the move tool (I'm weird, I know). But at the moment if I try to assign ESC to something, it just closes the settings window. I'm requesting theese because I used Inkscape a lot, and it has these mechanics I really liked. So to sum it up, I request more freedom about shortcuts assignement. Hope you can implement it, have a nice day
  21. One tool that's indispensable in CAD is line extend. It's something that's sorely missing from illustration tools. You select the tool Click on the line Drag in the direction you want to extend OR enter the value you want it to extend The tool knows what angle a line is at and just extends it. It'd also be great if we could enter an angle. That way we could extend a line by say 33° to the line at the chosen anchor point.

    Blurred text in tabs

    Hey, today I noticed all my tool-tabs in Designer are blurry. I don't know if I just didn't recognize before or if it's because i deactivated the required font. It's just the tabs – buttons, drop-downs, rulers, headlines are perfectly sharp. My config is a late 2015 27" 5k iMac 4 GHz i7, Designer V1.5.5 . Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
  23. I only seem to be able to pull a guide while I am using the move tool. Shouldn't you be able to do that no matter what tool you are using?
  24. I’m using two screens, the one of my ASUS notebook and an external screen, also ASUS. Is it feasible to get the tools on one screen, e.g. the laptop one, and the full picture on the bigger external one? As far I know it’s not possible to do so in the Adobe programs such as PS, LR, E, … But maybe Affinity Photo can?
  25. I'm having trouble using the bucket tool. Create document. Create layer. Enter text on layer. Create fill layer. Select bucket tool. Select color. "Click to flood fill." Nothing happens. ?? I am trying to create yellow text on a black background. Could someone please tell me the secret?
