  1. Hi everybody I scanned an image that I want to add text to, but first need to rotate it as it's slightly crooked. The trouble is after I do this I'm left with transparent (checked) space around the image that refuses to go away. I realize I must be making some sort of cardinal error in the process but being a new user of Affinity Designer aren't sure where I'm slipping up. Here is what I've been doing: Open image > create artboard > select move tool > deselect lock children > rotate image > select background layer > use vector crop tool to get rid of unwanted space around image > cut image > apply "New from Clipboard". It doesn't matter whether I crop a little or a lot off the image, the transparent space persists around its edges. How do I stop this from happening? Many thanks!
  2. I have the newest version of Affinity. The flip horizontal and flip vertical cause artifacts on my artwork that looks like tiny screws. This didn't happen before in the older versions, so how can I stop it in the newest version. How do I enjoy the functions of the "flip horizontal" and "flip vertical" without this distortion happening in my artwork?
  3. Others have more than likely mentioned it, but here are my observations anyway: Affinity Designer V2 Frame text ruler is not visible/accessible on a text frame made by FrameText Tool. Even after previously mentioned work arounds. (Can apply tab stops etc via dialogue boxes, but it's a real pain). 😞 Affinity Publisher V2 Show Text Ruler works properly with tab stops on a text frame made by FrameText Tool, 🙂 hooray!

  4. If you're unable to find the Vector Flood Fill Tool after updating to Affinity Designer 2.1, you will have to manually add this tool to the Tools Panel. To do this, go to the View menu, select Customise Tools. You can now drag the Flood Vector Fill Tool icon from the pop-up menu into the Tools panel, or vice versa.
  5. Hi, Since the first Version of Affinity Designer 2 I have this problem: When I deselect an object, the selection border of the curves still persist. This is a big annoing problem that forces me to close and reopen the file in order to have a clear and clean view of what I'm creating every 5 minutes 😭
  6. In Affinity Designer 2 I have a a grid of 30 same-sized circles (10 objects in 3 rows). I'd like to apply a 3-step gradient to all the objects, so that the first circle is bright red, with each subsequent circle gradually falling to pink so that that the middle circles are light gray, and then continuing to falling to blue, so that the last circle are bright blue. Can someone help me with the steps involved to do that?
  7. Hi, When i want to create a shadow for a shape i create it with pencil tool with width at 0 then fill it black and reduce opacity. I place the shadow inside a shape then only the part inside the shape appears. I would like to affect multiple layers at the same time. I think the solution is blending mode similar to "Erase" because it affect multiple shapes (only inside) the problem is i can't add black to it i think it would be a good way to create shadows. If someone have a better way, i would like to know about it Thanks Tom
  8. I am newbie to everything design that also includes photoshop/indesign. I'm not if I used the correct words. I want create a sticker with separate text layers with a black fill behind it like this: but aligning stroke to outside and increasing the width to the text give me this result: So far the work around for me has been duplicating this above and changing the fill to black and then send it behind the original text, that is to create this effect Is there a way around this without combining the two text layers? I know that that is the easiest solution but I like working with multiple text layers. I have attached the document. I tried the contour tool but AD kept crashing, so I can't use that. Thanks.

  9. I remember being in the Serif forums asking the developers to make features such as Shape Builder Tool among others and waited for someone to answer our questions. But no one did. Now we are hearing that the new version of Designer will have these things and even more. But now...there isn't any update nor is it available for Mac OS High Sierra. The long awaited update is now an upgrade and in order to get it, you have to buy a new computer. Not cool Serif . You forgot about the rest of us. I'll be going back to Illustrator (more robust, even though it has a monthly hefty price but it's compatible to my Mac OS 10.13.6.) What a great way to alienate the people who got you there.
