  1. Hello I am unable to remove a guide that I placed just outside an artboard. I am currently using Affinity Designer app for Ipad.
  2. The pixel selection brush does not work on pixel objects when it is placed outside an artboard (i.e. the pasteboard). What's up with that?
  3. Another bug.. Or maybe it's "by design"? Guides placed on artboards disappear when placed inside a layer. They are only visible when you physically select the artboard itself. Once you start adding shapes, they disappear This is not a problem with artboards that are not within a layer.
  4. I'm a new-ish Affinity Designer user, and I love it! But I need help sorting out some mysteries, as described below. I've attached my file, "house plat 1st floor". On my house plan, there's an odd section in the upper outline, in the heavier line above and to the right of the label "David's kitchen". What's going on? I tried a couple things to fix it, but was unsuccessful. In some places the heavier outline is straight, and in others it's more "freehand" looking. I'm gradually getting more control over drawing lines, but are there any tips on how to always have straight lines when you want them? And finally... Since the building is bilaterally symmetrical, I drew the rooms on the right side. Then I copied the right side, pasted, flipped the pasted image, and lined it up to match the right side. Voila! Rooms now appear on the left side also. But now I'm getting odd behavior because half of the artboard seems to have cloned itself, which I didn't expect. Is there any way to fix this? I was assuming the artboard was just the workspace, but maybe it's something else? That's enough for now. TIA for any advice. [Note: I worked on this file in the Affinity Designer 1.7 customer beta. I posted these questions here b/c I don't think they're beta-related, but feel free to move the post if I'm mistaken.] house plat 1st floor.afdesign
  5. Hello! I am having issues with Affinity Designer not exporting the crop marks properly on a booklet I'm trying to send to print. The bleeds are not working properly. Each finished page is 7" x 10" and I am trying to export bleeds and crop marks at .125" around each edge. I tried transforming each page to 7.25 x 10.25 thinking maybe I had to take account of the bleeds in the page size, but that didn't seem to work either. I made sure to 'include bleeds' when exporting. I am on a tight timeline to send to print and I am unable to fix this myself. Is anyone able to help?
  6. if i copy to an artboard, and then change the image on it, the image on the artboard i copied will also be changed..how can i prevent that ? I honestly don't get the point either. But I find it very handy that I can switch to edit mode with a double click on an artboard and change motif and text, but it would be nice if these changes were not transferred to the artboard I copied. Best L Ps. Affinity Designer 1.6.1 Running on a Mac 10.14.2
  7. I have some problem with EPS8 exported from Affinity always have a big size of artboard when open in AI (illustrator) (stock agency rejected). Not so sure is it about compatibility issue? Is it possible to have an original artboard size for final EPS8 or anyone have the solution for final EPS8 from Affinity for the stock market? - Thanks in advanced.
  8. Greetings, I hope, this is actually a missing feature and not just a feature I missed. I find myself often wanting to readjust a previously created artboard to fit an object (shape, image, etc.) but without snapping this becomes messy everytime. Being able to make artboards snap would make this kind of work way smoother. Until this feature will be available I'll have to live with the workaround of moving the object outside the artboards and then creating a new artboard (funny enough when creating a new artboard snapping to object works fine, so why doesn't it work when readjusting?) Actually this feature would be a request for every affinity product that features artboards and snapping Thanks for reading!
  9. I am looking for a way to "link" an object(s) rather than copying and pasting, or "placing" in such a way that a change to the original object is reflected wherever it has been used. For example, see the screenshot (I am using artboards here, but just for this example). I would like to a change to the objects in the "logo" artboard to be reflected in the "letterhead" and "envelope" artboards, for example changing the text from "A Logo" to "My Logo". Is there some approach that would allow this? Doesn't have to be between artboards... logo could be a separate document, etc. Thanks... I love using Affinity Designer, and use it for all my vector based work now.
  10. Not super important feature, but it would be convenient. I'm working on a massive heightmap that I'm drawing as slices. Being able to cross the boundaries of artboards easily would be very nice.
  11. I have many artboards in Affinity Designer (more than 50) Each artboard will be a single page in a PDF document that I will export. As I understand it there are two routes to exporting PDFs: File > Export > PDF Make a slice for each artboard, and export each page as separate PDF The first option is problematic because in the exported PDF, artwork from one artboard, if larger than the artboard itself, is showing up on neighbouring artboards (i.e. pages). See the PDF attachment: the maroon rectangle overlaps the second artboard and (and the same in reverse for the green rectangle overlapping the first artboard). I'm aware that the obvious answer to this is move the artboards further away from each other but this isn't ideal for a few reasons: As I say, this document has over 50 artboards representing pages in the exported document so spacing them far enough apart from each other such that photos and other artwork don't overlap other artboards isn't feasible, especially as the artboards masks the artwork beyond the edge of the artboard; its impossible to see where the bounds of the artwork is to mitigate overlap on other artboards I'm actually trying to place two artboards side by side to represent each spread in the book in order to actually visualise what the art looks like together as a spread without a gap. So, I was wondering if there is an option I'm missing somewhere in File > Export > PDF that I can turn off artwork from separate artboards overlapping and appearing on other artboards (i.e. pages) in the export? At a push I'm aware that I can use option 2. above as a work around for this problem i.e. slicing up the artboards using export persona and exporting each board as a separate PDF document. But of course this leaves me with the hassle of having to combine all the PDFs back into one document using some third party program every time I want to export a version of the PDF document for preview. I'm also not sure what effect another round of compression will have on the document and am therefore reluctant to use this method especially as this will be going for print. Any help would be greatly appreciated! test5.pdf
  12. Is there a way to open/import AI files that have objects out of bounds? Most of my Illustrator files have objects all over the place. When opening AI file in Designer what you see is only what's on the artboard and in my case it's most of the times nothing. So I have to open Illustrator, move objects and then open the file in Designer. Thank you.
  13. I try to precisely fit the artboard to an element, but somehow snapping doesn't work on artboards (?). So I have the following questions: 1) Is there a way to fit an artboard to a graphical element (like in Illustrator, with I believe doubleclick on an object)? 2) How can we use snapping to snap the artboard-bounds (with the arboardtool) to a graphical element?
  14. When reading/importing a designer file into Publisher, it would be intuitive to have the option to import artboards as pages. Currently the whole document is imported as a single page with multiple artboards. A work around is to create a PDF and load that as then the pages are correctly handled - however the text isn't handled quite correctly - odd letterspacing, justification etc... Just a thought. Regards, Mark
  15. Would like to see an option allowing the conversion of Designer files that include multiple Artboards to Publisher Pages. Currently it seems as though all Designer artboards are converted to a single giant page in Publisher. I have built a number of 24 - 60 "page" files using Designer in hopes that Publisher would have some option to see the artboards as pages. Bonus Request: Allow entering "Number of Pages in the New Document dialog, saving a step from going to the "Add Pages" dialog. thanks!
  16. In help there is information that it is possible to add stroke to artboard in Designer. However it just doesn't work. I recorded my attempt to add stroke to artboard. Help: https://affinity.help/designer/en-US.lproj/pages/Artboards/artboards_clr.html no stroke on artboard.mov
  17. Hi, I have a file with 72 pages (done with the artboard). The export to PDF looks fine, but when I want to send the PDF to a print shop, they refuse it as the pages have different sizes/formats. All artboards are copied from one "master" but some of the pages (20, page 2 to 21 from 72) create the error. I already tried to copy a "correct" page and delete the faulty page, but the result is the same. Also Adobe Preflight shows the same error message. Does anyone have an idea, what I could try to get this fixed? Thanks Tobi
  18. hi there, It seems i can not rename Artboard1, Artboard2 etc. in names i prefer, am i right or overlooking something?
  19. Has the "view selected artboard" keyboard shortcut been changed from "shift-command-0" to "view selection"? I'd like something different than the "view selection" key short as I use that keyshort to view selections and I miss having the ability to see the whole artboard when I have something else selected. Plus I don't want to have to select the artboard in order to see the current artboard full frame. Am I missing something??
  20. Copying artboards and then hitting "New From Clipboard" will initially create a document that does not use artboards. In this state an export to PDF would cause all artboards ending up on a single page. The document will enable artboards only once an editing action is performed. PS: As far as I've understood there is currently no easier way to only export selected artboards into pages in a PDF document. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
  21. I'd like to see the option to change a colour of an artboard when working in Designer. At the moment I'm using extra colour-filled layer to work on design when artwork is in white. It works, but it's not ideal. Thanks.
  22. I have some design to be done in white. How do I change colour of the artboard? I was looking for half an hour and can't find it. I know, I can add a coloured layer beneath everything, but I would prefer to do it without adding the extra layer.
  23. I have a master document with many artboards (around 100) , each of which represents a page or spread in a graphic novel. Each artboard has one document embedded in it, that represents the editable information where the page or spread is put together. This works well because the master document is relatively simple – I edit the original document that was embedded to make changes, then replace the embedded document. I have to add several thousand speech bubble to the document. I have been creating a symbol that I recreate in each subdocument, placing them, and then replace the embedded document. It occurred to me that creating one symbol in the master document would let me place speech bubbles on every page in one place. Since I often have to balance the flow of the speech in the novel, this is good because I can drag from artboard to artboard, and the symbol will remain connected to the original definition. That way if I want to make changes to transparency of the background, style of border, corner radius etc, I can do so in one place. Even though a speech bubble symbol is in a given artboard, when I double click that item and see the embedded document open up in a new tab for editing, the symbol is not part of it. Why? Even if I accept this behaviour, when I then copy a bubble in the master layout, and then go to the embedded document tab, pasting it in leaves it not in the original position, and not to the same scale as it was. This seems weird, and unhelpful. Even accepting the limits on Symbols, why can't they at least remember scale and position information when copied and pasted to another doc?
  24. Dark artboards seems to have unexpected white borders. Please see attached files. Affinity Designer v1.6.1. dark-ab.afdesign
  25. Hi, I was wondering if I could request a very simple improvement to artboard presets and setup. Basically when you have multiple art boards open within ONE document and then you use the artboard tool to create yet another artboard. The presets this tool gives you is quite limited and it only has devices to choose from. Nexus, iPhone for example. I use artboards a lot for stationary like a4 letters or business cards. Could you include some basic presets for paper sizes and other similar objects. This would be really handy instead of having to use the transform tool and remember the various paper sizes. Great product - absolutely love it. So grateful. Thank you.
