  1. To me, this falls somewhere between bug and feature request, because it's not "wrong," per se. But recently I was setting up a large document for exporting multiple formats of a logo design, with multiple slices carefully laid out and snapped to grid. I wanted to export RGB versions at 72 dpi in pixels, and then (hoped) to scale the document up to 300 dpi and export in CMYK. However, doing this enlarged all design elements but left guides and slices the same size, very small, oriented to the top left corner. Re-sizing all of those guides and slices would probably take over an hour. :( It would be very nice if guides and slices also scaled (at least approximately) with resolution changes. I'll post a video of this later if it's helpful.
  2. Hi Guys. My name is Andreas Schmidt from Germany. Who of you used Affinity Photo and Designer on a new MacPro with D300 graphics card? I use the programs Affinity Photo and Desinger on a new MacPro and I must say that's rather poor performance compared to my MacBookPro (2012). It takes more than 40-60 seconds before launch the two programs on the MacPro, on the MacBook just 2 seconds. Even when processing OpenType fonts, the Great is more sluggish compared to the Little ones. Can someone confirm the problem ???? It is a clean and newly installed OS X 10.10.4 with 16GB of memory. Access rights were checked and repaired. Thanks for your help and sorry for the bad english. Best regards from Germany

  5. I designed a frame filled with a wooden background in Affinity Designer. When I printed it out on my LaserJet printer, the lower part of this frame was cut off. Even when I exported this frame as a PDF, the lower part of this frame was cut off. See attachment. Rahmen.pdf
  6. Greetings all, Are there any rules, or guidelines, for creating the artwork used to create custom, textured brushes in Affinity Designer? I've been using 300 dpi PNGs, RGB, white stroke against black background. Regards, jB

    A simple portrait (Vector Illustration), made with love. The feather boa has made me almost crazy ... ;)
  10. Greetings All! I have a question about increasing/decreasing brush size in Affinity Designer's Draw and Pixel persona. Note: I have my Wacom tablet setup to change brush size via mapping [ and ] to pen rocker switch. I've noticed that the value for increasing, or decreasing, brush size appears variable, with no consistency. For example, I start with a brush size of 10, click ] to go up, brush is increased to 11.8. If I click [ and go down, the brush is now 9.8... not 10. Is there anyway to set, or lock down, the brush increase/decrease value? The reason I ask, is I'm doing artwork for a comic strip and I vary between two brush sizes. It would help if my increase/decrease was a set value, as I end up having to do a lot of clean-up work on brush strokes in post. Regards, jB

    Icon App Affinity Designer

    Icon App Linguagem do Coração Affinity Designer.
  12. I'm new to Designer and have created a few designs so far. All of my designs have exported correctly to JPEG/Best Quality however, my latest hangs for hours and have to Force Quit the app. Is there anything that I should look into to solve this problem, i.e. specific type of content, layers, groupings, etc.? Thanks for a great product and for your help on this!
  13. Hi, Occasionally I try to import an EPS image, I get the images from stock photo sites, I assume they were done in illustrator. What I am noticing is that they don't behave or render the same in Affinity Designer as they do in Adobe Illustrator: Here's an image I brought into AD, and tried to remove the 'person' on the left: http://www.screencast.com/t/F3llX3VWFvG: Note the problems: Removing the user leaves white space instead of the background, and there are lots of tiny white borders where there should be none. By Comparison, here's what it looks like in Adobe Illustrator CS5: http://www.screencast.com/t/5XLgCb5ItLls: Note that in both cases I deleted two things: the head and body. In illustrator the delete went down to the lets (what you see left is a 'reflection') in AD it stopped at the gradient border (the sunburst on the blue persons head) Is this a known issue? I imagine EPS stuff is pretty hard to reverse engineer- any likely hood of a fix? - Jack
  14. I am trying to effectively do a "bucket fill" with transparency on a pixel image. The "Flood Fill Tool" does absolutely nothing for me (I have no idea how it works). The "Transparency Tool" only allows one gradient at a time. How can I use multiple instances of the transparency tool? Is there a way to draw/erase/fill transparency, or am I stuck using only one gradient? The same issue occurs with vector graphics that I've drawn from scratch using Designer. I've been struggling with this for over an hour. Any help would be immensely appreciated. Thanks, --Joseph

    tailored taylored - portrait drawing with AD, maybe you like it.
  16. Hi, Does anyone know how to import brushes into AD? I've looked at posts here and followed the instructions (ie clicked corner menu & selected 'import brushes') but .abr & .eps files are greyed out and I can't import anything. Do I have a glitch? Hoping someone can help. Cheers, Hannah
  17. :( :( :( Really does not sound hopefully. Serif told us even this year we get Publisher this year. Even the Designer is not finished for professional use and a complete CANVAS will start next month. If we get Publisher 2017 it will be finished 2020? …
  18. We all need the option of input and output of the cap height, to quickly get text that is exactly the same height like other objects. There is Software with that option. In Affinity Designer it could be ch=n. Not only because the Snapping is no help in that case up to now. _____________________________________________________________________________________ PS1: For users that are not professionals or typographers it is difficult to comprehend that: Putting in 15 mm here for a versal letter “H" … … results an height of about 13.9 mm (seen in the Transform field Height) … so 15 is 13.9 some might think And when converting to curves, the 15 or 13.9 mm heights result in about only 10.7 mm. Some might think, when choosing mm, I want to get the real height that I feed in. Who needs 3 or 4 (including 28,3 pt) or more different values in a vector app, not knowing which is right or stands for what? PS2: Would be great if in future the snapping would work like shown by the snapping outlines:
  19. I'm trying to figure out how to set the origin for the rulers in Designer, this is something I use regularly in Illustrator and have not been able to discover how to do this in Designer?
  20. I posted this before for the photo beta and it was fixed (i believe), but it hasn't been fixed for Designer. Here is a short video (no audio) of the bug. If you set the export options for a layer, the export button doesn't work until you switch to a different layer and then switch back to the layer you want to export.
  21. HitFilm 3 Express is currently available for free over on this site: https://hitfilm.com/express While HitFilm is generally a vehicle for filmmakers, it has compositing features that make it ideal for generating motion graphics. A few things to remember: ~ HitFilm does not accept the import of vectors. You'll have to export all vectors to .png files to use them as assets. ~ Hitfilm's mac version only works with OS X 10.8 or higher. ~ In HitFilm, you must create a composite shot in order to use keyframing and effects. Composite shots are similar to After effects' precompositions. HitFilm has two modes to create work in: the editing mode and the compositing mode. When your composite shots are complete, switch back to the editing mode and the composite shots are in the assets window ready to be dragged & dropped into the NLE. ~ Unlike HitFilm 3 Pro, Express only exports up to 1080p. Hope This Helps.
  22. Hello, another work with Affinity Designer, pure vector/without pixel. Mhh... where are actually all the cats? My cat (Fatalia) likes birds very much. For some special games and more ... ;)
  23. See topic title. Affinity Designer 1.3.2 App Store build. Adjusting the Pressure graph has no effect whatsoever on the stroke. Controller set to "Brush Defaults" is also affected, though that's probably identical to "None" for the brush I tested it with.
  24. Test case: Create new document. Add a triangle shape create new layer Add elipse shape Select both layers and modify R or S value using the sliders from the transform dialog. Result: AD has no idea what it's doing Once this happens you can zoom out, move the shapes back in to position and it appears to then work as expected, but the first time it goes mental. I stumbled accross this trying to come up with alternative to mesh warp however apart from flip & rotate there doesnt seem to be any sort of warp/transform in AD at all. Im sure I seen it happening in the video when AD was first released. Any idea when warping is coming? AD: v1.3.2 Yosemite v10.10.4 (14E46)
  25. So, Diving into some Affinity Photo. I had a Couple of hiccups, but I am enjoying Affinity Photo so far. Still working this one out, but I am at a stopping point, so I figure I would share what I have so far. Stock Photograph model credit to Fae : http://faestock.deviantart.com/
