  1. Could you add a flatten transparency command like Adobe Illustrator's? The way it works is that it converts the vector object with transparancy to a non-transparent vector with a colour that matches the one it had when opacity was applied. For more info see this thread: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/175099-flatten-transparency-set-opacity-to-100-and-use-the-colour-closest-to-the-transparant-colour/
  2. I really like the freehand vector pencil tool in Designer, but there are some thing that are a bit annoying and could improved imo. 1. Auto close was added in 2.0, but I find that in most cases it is not very useful. I would rather have the ability to close a path when the starting and end point are at a specified distance from eachother, say 10 points. This would allow me to use sculpt mode AND create closed paths, which is not possible right now. 2. Set smoothing factor: I would like the ability to set the accuracy of the stroke I draw, from very raw input with a lot of accuracy to a more smoothed out line. 3. Related to the previous point is the problem I have with zooming and pencil accuracy. The more zoomed out you are, the less accurate/more smoothed out the path becomes. I wish for a general smoothness regardless of zoom level. 4. I would love the integration of a Path eraser, that would be able to cut lines up to an intersection. This is possible using the Shapebuilder tool right now, so the code is there, but having it integrated in the Pencil tool and available with a shortcut would make it much more intitive and fast. This would probably require an option to keep all drawn paths selected.
  3. Let's go back to school, with some of those common and well known school protractors for measuring in degrees. ... etc. The protractor assets shared here ... ... are all vector based and do have printed on degree scales. You have to adapt/size the default assets protractor sizes to your document needs and thus scale them up/down so they nearly match your doc measurements. Note that all protractors are just a bunch of grouped/layered together vector parts (curves and text) thus they can be modified in colorings and the like. Also you should always move & size etc. a whole reused protractor group/layer when needed! Here is the associated assets file: protractors.afassets Have a nice school day!
  4. This started off life as a quick colour study for an oil painting I’ve been planning and wasn’t meant to be anything more, but - as usual - I started getting obsessed with adding the detail, and so here we are. I’ll still work on the painting, but I’m really happy with the vector version so thought I’d share. Hope you like her!
  5. Hello, I would like to suggest adding a vectorization feature to your software, similar to Illustrator's functionality. This request is quite common, and many users are frustrated by the fact that this feature is practically non-existent! It's quite unfortunate. I sincerely hope that you will consider integrating this feature in an upcoming update. It would be greatly appreciated by the graphic design community and would be a significant advancement for Affinity. Please kindly consider this request and implement it if possible. Thank you for your attention.
  6. I could have called this Many hands (and feet) make light work. We're all getting browned off with Artificial Intelligence stealing copyright works. I thought it was time I made a stand and made my own AI image. In this case, it probably means Astonishing Inaccuracies.
  7. Hello, I am looking for the equivalent of inset and outset in Inkscape. Can't find anything related in AD. There's something like that right?
  8. I am making some pattern that will be cut with a laser. This means that I have to plan the paths for the cuts by using vectors. I need to cut the whole edge of a piece (curvy) on a zig zag so the curves keep some stability once cut, but I can't finde a way to turn my smooth lines into zig zag ones.
  9. Just reposting this v1 feature request in the v2 feedback forum. Would be good to know if implementing this feature is even possible, I assume the inner software architecture doesn't allow it (only bitmaps) and it might only be possible with a hacky and unstable implementation, but if you can confirm it at least we can close the question with a definite answer. Here's the v1 thread:
  10. why are Recent picked colors are not listed when using VECTOR FLOOD FILL? bug???
  11. The Green Eye of the Yellow God, aka The Green Eye of the Little Yellow God, is a dramatic monologue written in 1910 by J Milton Hayes. Despite one or two comic parodies, it's still a Ripping Yarn if delivered straight; you can look up the words, or a recitation on YouTube. Meanwhile, I thought it would make a good subject for a 1960s-style pulp paperback cover (though it would be a very short book, as it will fit on a single page). Made in Designer, with a couple of pixel texture layers.
  12. Hi everyone! This marks the start of my sketchbook. EDIT; here is the optimized version with shadows, thanks for the tip!@MBWanderer
  13. New in Version 1.2: Tracks Function – Create many types of rotational designs. Routes Selector – You have a choice of the order in which most designs are drawn. Colour Schemes – Seven new schemes. New Shapes – Spikeys, Flowers, Rectelipses (Squircles), Quaternates, and path versions of other shapes. Code Viewer – Improved viewing options. Fields – You can now determine if the shape positions are automatically recalculated. I recently published an update to Canny Vectors which is an application that allows Windows 10 users to create various vector designs that can be used in the Affinity applications – as native Affinity layers – or saved as SVG files to be used anywhere you use SVGs. I had the Affinity applications in mind when I was developing the software but you can probably use the output anywhere that can use an SVG. It is not meant to be the greatest vector application ever, or anything like that; it’s just a small collection of simple tools which might come in useful every now and again and save you a little bit of time here and there. And it's completely free with no ads. At the moment it has five functions: Grids – regular orthogonal grids of shapes; Fields – a collection of randomly placed shapes; Panes – an area covered with randomly altered lines or shapes. Centrics – Create ‘concentric’ shapes, and more. Tracks - Create rotational designs. Each function has various options with which you can vary what the software creates, so there’s lots to experiment with. The application comes with a user guide – written using the Affinity applications – which I have attached to this post: I’ve attached some example images and a video of each function showing just some of what you can do. Please do not make bug reports or make feature requests for this software in these forums; I’m sure the Serif staff don’t want that extra hassle. Use the in-app functionality instead, or you can rate/review the software in the App Store. If you want to make a feature request, please read the notes in Part 8 of the user guide before making the request (some requests/suggestions may be ignored). (You might be able to PM me via the forums as long as the discussion doesn't go on for too long.) If you do use the software, and find some good uses for it, then it might be nice if you could show some examples here for other people to see. You can find and install the software via this link: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9P3H0SH7XK02 Or you can get it via the Microsoft Store here: ms-windows-store://pdp/?productid=9P3H0SH7XK02 Why not give it a try and see what you can create? 2022-02-27 12-25-52.mp4 2022-02-27 12-30-24.mp4 2022-02-27 12-41-04.mp4 2022-02-27 12-43-22.mp4 2022-02-27 12-47-38.mp4

  15. Hi all, I'm considering buying Designer but one thing that I can't find is if there is a way to fill an object using vector or patterns. I only find gradients and bitmap. I know we can duplicate an object to create hand made pattern but I can't then edit the repetitions like if is a bitmap fill. Cheers, Juan
  16. Decided to do this without blurs again whilst trying to keep it realistic. It made some things trickier but saved the time in not having to set a million blurs. Used AD v2 for the warped text.
  17. The year is almost over, so let's share some reusable fireworks items for your possible flyers and new year cards. - Note that those firework assets are always groups of vector elements, thus if you want to recolor some of them you best select the whole individual group. These assets are usable for things like shown in the following examples ... The corresponding fireworks assets file as a zip-archive: fireworks.zip
  18. Hi all, been a very long time since I last posted on here. So I am trying to apply a mask to an image an Image I created. It is a logo using the Union Jack flag and I want to give the edges a distressed look. Being as I was out of practice with Affinity I used the good old University of YouTube and came across this video... I am trying to do the section timed at 12m 27seconds. However... nothing happens when I try to drag the logo into the texture layer. I've attached a screen shot of what I am getting.... in short nothing. I am pretty sure I am making a simple error but can anyone help me out?

  21. Good morning ! A very essential option is missing: vectorization. The possibility of vectorizing an image in jpg or png. This is a very important function for me. Will you put in the next update?
  22. I have been searching for a while now, but cant find any "select same colour" feature. All I can find is a feature request post from 4 years ago asking for this. Surely this rudimental feature has been implimented by now. Selecting and replacing a colour is one of the main benefits of vector work, to not have this seems crazy to me. I know the dev team is small and your product is so superior to Adobe is so many ways, but missing fundamental features like this makes it unusable for real world projects. I hope I am being a dullard and a select same colour feature is available. If not please add it to the top of the list of features in the next update.
  23. Hi! I recently updated to Affinty Publisher V2. I've used linked .ai files in Publisher V1 before with success. The files only contain outlined text, no effects and no pictures. Now after updating to V2, placing the ai file makes it rasterized. It stays the same after exporting it as pdf. Any ideas on how to solve this?
  24. Hi, I'm trying to draw an old style map with slope indicated by hatching. I'm using a vector layer with the "2B pencil hatch" brush and would like to taper the thickness at the start/end of each line. I just cant figure how to make it's width either with a Wacom pad or pressure map. I can get pressure sensitivity working on pixel brushes, but not on vectors. Pressure settings appear on the Brush edit panel so I assume its supposed to be possible? Can you confirm if it should be possible and any likely issues. Windows 10 Home/Latest. Designer 2.2.1
