  1. I've noticed some strangeness when importing my *.ai files in Affinity Designer. You can do this test to see what I am seeing: 1. In Illustrator, sketch a rectangle and color it 100% K (in a CMYK file), then make it 60% transparent. 2. Save a PDF compatible *.ai file. 3. Open your *.ai file in AD. 4. Note inside "Layer 1" you have "(Group)" and inside that you have "(Curve)" 5. Note the "Opacity" slider in the "Color" tab is set to 100%. 6. With "Layer 1" selected in the Layers palette, decrease that "Opacity" slider (the one OUTSIDE the Layers palette) to say 50% and you can see your object lighten but the "Opacity" slider snaps back to 100%. Do that again when you have "(Group)" selected and the same thing happens. But do that when you have "(Curve)" selected and your chosen value sticks! Strange. Very strange. 7. Note that you can also change the separate "Opacity" slider that resides inside the Layers palette. And only "(Group)" shows 50% (the value you set in Photoshop), while "Layers 1" and "(Curve)" show 100%. All this is very confusing to me. First of all, why not just import than single object as a single object? Why create two objects "(Group)" and "(Curve)"? Next, what is different about the Opacity slider in the Color tab, which sits just millimeters away from the separate Opacity slider inside the Layers palette? Sorry if my questions are confusing but I myself am confused. Thanks.
  2. I have an imported pdf (placed) now I need to make the background transparent. The pdf is black and white I want the white to be transparent how do I achieve this? I tried rasterize to mask but it makes the entire pdf transparent. Please help if you can.
  3. I have this B/W (greyscale) image that I would like to blend on different backgrounds, i.e. I want the grey's converted to levels of transparency. I have no experience from other software either, so any PS reference won't help me :-) Thanks, Fredrik
  4. Any idea how can I draw nice bubbles?
  5. Made a group of a few objects. Each has a different Opacity level. Select group, change group's opacity, expecting entire group to reduce transparency in proportion to each individual member's transparency, but instead all members of the group have their opacity set to a common/normalised number as per the transparency slider. The group on the left shows the problem.
  6. I'm a veteran Illustrator user who recently purchased AD. I am now comparing "Stroke" features between the two apps. Here are my questions: 1) Sketch a rectangle and give it an opaque color, then sketch a second rectangle above it and give your second rectangle X% Opacity. Now tick / Enable "Stroke" in the Effects. Slowly move the Radius to the right and you will then suddenly see your X% Opacity become complete Opaque. Why? 2) In Illustrator I can put a Stroke on a rectangle and then make that stroke to be Centered or Inside or Outside. But AD is very different. When I sketch a rectangle in AD and then when I add a "Line" to it, I am presented with a large number of options, but the ability to move that Line to the Outside or Inside is mysteriously absent. So I was thinking to myself, well, maybe the developers of AD want me to use the "Stroke" Effect instead. And truly, when I apply a Stroke, I have the 3 options available (Center, Inside, Outside). But the disadvantage to using Stroke is that the corners are always curved. Why is that? 3) Stroke does not seem to be a replacement for Line. Try this. Sketch a rectangle but set Fill and Line to NONE. Now tick/Enable Stroke and expand the Radius. Nothing appears on screen at all! But as soon as I give it a fill color, then the Stroke magically appears. It seems a bit strange. If Line would give me the option to have Center or Inside or Outside, this wouldn't matter as I could then use Line instead. 4) Illustrator empowers me to add multiple strokes to the same object, and when I set those strokes behind the fill, I can then do some pretty interesting things. I cannot seem to find a way to do this in AD. 5) It seems that AD only allows me to add a gradient to a Stroke but not to a Line. This is unfortunate because I cannot seem to create a Stroke WITHOUT rounded corners. 6) Illustrator CC has some powerful new Corner features for Strokes. For example, I can sketch a rectangle and then give it a 5pt stroke and then I can grab any one of the 4 round tabs and drag inward to give all 4 corners the same roundness. Furthermore, I can use Illustrator's Direct Selection tool to draw a selection rec around only on of the corners, which will enable me to round that one corner independently of the others. How can I accomplish the same in AD? 7) Dashed lines and Arrowheads are very common in my work but such features appear to be absent in the current version of AD? 8) In Illustrator, I can sketch a line or Stroke a box and then have "Width Profile" that I can choose in the Stroke panel. This can be very useful at times. For example, in Illustrator, if I sketch a line that is 26pt thickness and then give it Width Profile 4, the 26pt thickness decreases linearly to zero, giving it the shape of a spike. Can such be done in AD? 9) Another tool I always use in Illustrator when dealing with Strokes and Objects is the CUT tool. I can't seem to find it in AD. How do I sketch a rectangle and then cut pieces out of it? Sorry for all the questions, but Strokes and Corners and Cutting are the biggest part of what I do in Illustrator, and such is what I intend to do in AD as well. Thanks.
  7. I was hoping to use the Gradient Map adjustment as a way to turn a black-and-white pixel layer into a black-and-transparent (or white-and-transparent) layer. When I apply a 0% opacity value to one of the stops, the opacity is reflected on the gradient preview, but not on the target layer itself. Meanwhile, the color value works fine (both in the preview and the layer). Did I miss something, or is this a bug? Using latest MAS version (1.1.2) on Yosemite.
  8. Hello, I have created an image with transparency and would like to export as png while maintaining the set transparency. Now when I export it removes all transparency. Is this possible? Is it a bug that the transparency is removed? Or am I doing something wrong? Thanks, Jeremy
  9. Hi, With a shape selected, if I click the transparency tool and select its type from the context bar, the 2 points of the transparency gradient will be 100% opaque. Here the screen recording https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1707710/transparency-tool.mov
  10. You can see the issue here There are no such gaps in the original file (attached). I tried all 5 ways of exporting a PNG. exports are here http://greggman.com/downloads/examples/affinity/transparency/transparency.html tile.afdesign
  11. I think it's great that you have a place to post bugs for the beta and that you respond to topics. (Just having it is only half...) Will the forum (or something similar) still be there after release? I really hope so because it gives people a chance to report things and find out if there is a fix. And it makes it easier to find out if you're the only one on the planet experiencing a problem/ bug.
  12. Another request: bitmap transparencies. See the attached graphic with the TNR font appearing as a stamp on the yellow background. I'm a new Mac user, still on CorelDRAW X4 on VMWare Fusion. I'm looking for a good Mac Vector replacement, but it seems that every vector program is missing a few key features that I use regularly in CD. I will be listing the ones I'd love to see in Affinity. So far nothing is really a good replacement for the features I use. Would love to see Affinity become the Mac's CorelDRAW!
