  1. Hello, Affinity Designer will not save certain files. I've attached one of the files and the error messages. I have tried to reset the app, save in a different place, etc. and it has not helped. Thank you!
  2. Hello, This issue is similar to my earlier post here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/26841-cant-export-single-artboard-instead-of-whole-document/ So please either delete, mark as duplicate, etc. if it has already been addressed and fixed. Whenever I go into Export Persona mode the right panel just disappears and I can't click on anything. Even if I go back to Draw Persona, I still can't do anything. I essentially have to restart Designer if I want to be able to work. However, while in Export Persona, if I click and drag I can see the right panel highlights changing. You can see this in the screenshots I attached. I'm on Mac 10.8.5. Thanks for any help, -Jeremy
  3. This is my list of feature requests so I can completely ditch illustrator. While I love Affinity Designer and bought it to support development, It doesn't fully replace Illustrator because of a few key features that are missing: Feature Request List: 1) Path offset 2) Shape builder 3) Snap to intersection between 2 paths (This has been fixed in the latest 1.5 beta) 4) Snap to self/copy. (i.e. when I drag and object it should snap to its previous position, or if I Alt drag a copy of an object it should snap to the original object). Existing Features That Are Buggy: 1) Expanding a stroke creates way too many verts Other Low Priority Features: 1) Use saved pressure curves across documents
  4. Affinity installed Windows, but the menu does not appear all that I see in the version for Mac. For example, do not have the option Document, Arrange and Filters. Enabling these options? I have also seen all the tools in the left panel. How to do this? Also could not move to the Portuguese language Brazil. Only a few items are converted (translated). Thank you very much!
  5. I purchased/downloaded AD 1.4.2, running El Capitan 10.11.5, cannot export, keeps crashing, was able to export on trial version, different OS, all older...any help will be appreciated. Simply put imported a pdf template to AD, added some simple graphics and text and no luck on exporting. I am a very new user to Affinity Design. Thanks in advance for any help. Wendi
  6. I, on mac the preview show the eps correctly but in Designer i have only the image (pixel) on the left on capture everyone vector don't work on designer :( metalskullrockstar.eps
  7. The background: I have an AD file I exported to jpeg, which I then imported to Apple's Photo. I then attempted to send an iMessage of the jpeg to someone to get feedback on the image. The problem: When the AD exported jpeg is opened in iMessage, the colors are suddenly completely wrong (even though they appear correct when simply viewing the image in the iPhone app), almost as if a grey filter is over the entire image. Below is a side-by-side comparison of screenshots. On the left is a portion of an unedited photo sent via iMessage, and on the right is the same photo after exporting from AD and sent via iMessage. What's going on here? Thanks!
  8. Hi there, I'm having some awful issues with the 1.4.1 release: Click to open Affinity and the splash logo just hangs there indefinitely; never starts the program. I quit the program, relaunch it again and it starts. (It behaves this way if I click the Affinity icon directly or if I try to launch Affinity by clicking on a project file). When it's open, all the studio panels are missing. I click "View>Studio>Reset Studio" and it brings back the missing windows, BUT... The layers never show up in the layers tab of vector persona. I see the layers tab, but no layers. I try to add layers and nothing shows up in the layers tab. I open a project and the content of the layers is present on the canvas, but still blank in the layers tab. So...I'm curious if I can roll back to the previous release somehow? I'm in the middle of a long-term project and this is ah...ahh...yikes. CPU Specs: iMac 27-inch, Mid 2010 2.93GHz Intel Core i7 16GB DDR3 RAM ATI Radeon HD 5750 1024MB OSX El Capitan 10.11.3 Thanks,
  9. I am having trouble removing and adding crop presets. I know that you go to custom ratio type in the desired ratio and then save it as a preset. After doing this the preset doesn't work and reverts to an unconstrained ratio. At first I couldn't select the faulty presets but after restarting the program I can put a checkmark next to the names. Even though I can select the presets and click "delete preset" the preset doesn't disappear. Help is appreciated.
  10. When trying to save an edited photo I get the message "access denied." If I try exporting to a jpeg I get "An error occurred while exporting to: (number of photo). This file could not be created." This on a 2008 iMac that I recently updated to el capitan. What is wrong?
  11. Hi, I can not drag the guidelines out of the rulers, only using "management guides" can make them appear and to use them. This is my configuration: OS X El Capitan, version 10.11.2, 21.5 iMac end of 2009, intel core 2 duo, 8GB DDR3, nvidia geforce 9400 256 mb. This problem with the feedback with Affinity Photo and with Affinity Designer. waiting for an answer I greet ... I apologize for any mistakes, but I'm an Italian guy ...
  12. I can't see the contents of each layer after the upgrade. The arrow on the left of each layer is not there and I can only see the name of the layer but not it's content (photo attached). It's a huge problem. I can't work. Is there anyway to go back to the old version? Thank you.
  13. I've saved files in .afdesign yet when I try to open it it says "the file type is not supported" how to open it?
  14. My first project learning to use AD and it won't export correctly. See Image #1. (What it's supposed to look like.) Image #2 (export settings) and Image #3 (what it actually looks like). I tried exporting in jpg, png, and psd, but the dice and coins don't show up in the final exports. I used export persona to export slices and got the same result. The dice and coins are not visible in the slices. Well, image #1 exported correctly when I broke apart the coin and dice groups, but that did not work on the other pages. If anyone knows how to fix this problem please let me know. This is a personal project, but I still have a deadline. Looks like I'll have to use some screen shots to produce the final cards since I'm planning to laminate them tomorrow. By the way this is a remake of a game by Calliope Games called 'Roll For It'. Follow me on Art Station and check out more of my work. https://b_sean.artstation.com Peaceout! B.
  15. So, after downloading Affinity Photo from the app store, there have been all kinds of bugs with the file thumbnails for AD and AP. In addition, the default applications for launching these files are mixed up. First, the thumbnails. I am experiencing various bugs here. On some of my accounts, the thumbnails for AD and AF files don't show up (they are still the white page). On other accounts, the new AD thumbnail shows up for both .afdesign and .afphoto files (see attached). I have also experienced them being swapped; i.e., the .afdesign files show the AP thumbnail and the .afdesign files show the AD thumbnails. Second, the default app for launching. Basically, the "default" application for either file type is one application. Put differently, the default application for both .afdesign and .afphoto files might be AD; or, it could reversed. For example, when I select a particular file type (say .afdesign) and choose the default app for that file type to be AD and apply that to all files of that type, that also changes the default application for .afphoto files to AD! See attached. I have tried everything I know to fix this from wiping everything (that I know of) related to AD and AF and starting from scratch (reinstalling), to rebuilding launch services, etc. Nothing seems to work. Any ideas? Update 1 I have found that, although the icons are still mixed up between applications (at this point I actually don't have AP icons, AD icons show up for both AD and AP), I can reliably show them if I increase the font size in the Finder window to 13 from the default 12 (in column view). They show up as the default white page though if the font size is 12. In list view, however, the icon size has to be set to large (regardless of font size) for the icons to show up. Weird?? Update 2 So, it appears that changing the font size in column view only showed the icons for one of my machines. It didn't do anything for my laptop (still just white pages).
  16. I am wondering if there is a bug in the RGB selection of sliders. I cannot view G and B only R because the color selector is the size of the box selection. Is this a bug that is being fixed.
  17. There seems to be a bug in the latest version of Beta that I am running. The issue is that "spell check highlights" the squiggly red lines bleed through from layers that are behind the top most (opaque) layer! See attached picture!
  18. I'm currently designing some basic icon sets in affinity designer. All was well and good until I went to export my PSD file to my icon folder, I usually save over my previous work for organizations sake so I replace the file entirely instead of versioning. Every time I save over my previous work Affinity Designer crashes, doesn't matter what the file format. I've managed to discerned that it only crashes when I save in this order User/ Desktop/ SUBFLDR/ SUBFLDR crash.pdf
  19. In Affinity 24216, on my 2014 Macbook Pro runnning 10.10.2, for the crop tool to work: In Preferences: performance: either "use hardware open GL" or "use only integrated GPU" has to be checked. The crop tool also works if both are checked, but if neither are checked, the crop tool just won't work, jumps all over the page. If one of these is checked, the crop works-- on single clicks. But if one tries to hold down the command key to drag over an area, the base site moves as if aligned, even if "aligned" is unchecked.
  20. Hi all, I just been looking in the Adobe forum and this is what I found: https://forums.adobe.com/message/6813810#6813810 and the other posts... I snapped up Affinity Designer the other day after watching their promotional video. So far, it well lives up to its promises and is as well-behaved as any software out there, legacy or not. Serif is a company to watch. I'm sure their photo editing and page layout software will be equally good as Affinity Designer. A new paradigm is upon us all... I was also a big fan of FreeHand but I always hated Illustrator. Recently I have spent a lot of time on iDraw and really enjoy it. One advantage it has over Illustrator is that you can exchange files between iPad and Mac. Affinity Designer also looks interesting and I hope to give that a try as well. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Affinity Designer is very interesting and is an easy replacement for Illustrator to me. I am so glad someone suggested that. #1 paid app in the Mac App Store! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you are using a Mac, you could always download the currently free beta of Serif's Affinity Designer and see if it will meet your needs in the future. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/ I think they intend on selling it for something around $30 or so once the beta is over. It is still beta, there is still work to be done. The ripples are growing and the next wave of customers will come over like a tsunami ...Roll on Publisher and Photo in 2015. Well done everyone. We can do it. We are doing it.
  21. Hi, people, I've been playing with your great program, I found some issues: 1. When activate the "Marquee select on Touch", there's a little lag when you try to get (with window selection) a text frame, this is not present in any other object. 2. I didn't find, in Stroke, the inner option in order to have a line inside the object (the're just behing/center option). Very useful btw. 3. When switch to Outline View, every time you move the object, it lets a ghost. I know this issues could be the RAM or Video Card but this is not present on Illustrator. 4. This is not a bug, per se, but when you have a lot of layers it could be really nice to hide/unhide the other layers with one click. Just clicking on the check option from one layer, hold the click and select the other layers in one movement. 5. I'm not really sure if it's useful transforming the object to Curve in order to modify it with the Node Tool, it needs two actions when clicking on Node could, in theory, modify the object ipso facto. You just made a great software. Gracias, @MisterFulanito
  22. Vector paths (unclosed) have fills applied when imported.
  23. Hey guys, loving the new program or app as it's clued nowadays, but while testing it out the brush tool is very slow and laggy, with the mouse and even more with my intros 4. Anybody else experiencing this? My mac is a macbook retina 13 with 8 gigs of ram and a 256 ssd, this years model. PEace
  24. Can't select an object on the page unless the Layer is selected in the Layers palette. Is this intentional?
  25. Very buggy. Get stuck in the 'pan' tool and the 'zoom' tool constantly. Sometimes it's a 5 second time lag, but mostly it's just stuck and doesn't respond to either hotkeys or toolbox selection. Takes a load of zoom in zoom out x 10 to break the cycle. Need a toogle option on the 'move' tool - preferably cmd I need to create text frame, paste text, move the frame into position, continue to edit, move it again etc etc without trip to the toolbox. The V (move) hotkey simply inserts a 'v' into the text frame.
