  1. Hi everyone!! When you cover the canvas/document with say a photo or colour, there is a white border/edge around the document. Though it doesn't appear when you export the work, I find it intrusive and it bothers me so see it there. However, when you rotate the whole canvas/document say 90 degrees and make sure the canvas intersects the panels past the rulers the white border disappears (see attached images). Is there any way to make this disappearance permanent? Any way to disable this white border (as sheen on the second photo below)? Thanks.
  2. This problem also appears in designer too apparently- exact same problem on that persons iPad Air 3. My problem is that the anchor points box is not visible completely. It forces me to resize utilizing the 3 top points in the square. If I want to resize my pic ( ie creating an equal border) I cannot select the Centre of the box cause it’s obscured. It may only be a problem with iPad Air 3- which I have. Real drag as I used this for boarders pre 1.9 thanks
  3. The flippening of the document window, happens if you almost or totally squash the window with the UI frames and then you create or open a document. Is not permanent, it will stay like that until the document is closed and is given enough room to "expand" properly. This also happens on Affinity Photo. Affinity_Designer_2021-04-04_06-49-29.mp4
  4. In any given programs there is the ability to crop the canvas, however in Affinity Designer you have to go all the way to the Document Setup and do the guess work if you're cropping at a specific size. Is there any possible ways to crop the canvas on the canvas itself, like in Photoshop or Illustrator you can just resize the canvas with the artboard tool, however that doesn't seems to be the case in Affinity Designer, unless I am missing something here. Thanks!
  5. There was meant to be a new feature in 1.9 where you can hold CMD to rotate the canvas with the scroll wheel - I noticed it as an option in the "Tools" preferences too. For some reason this feature doesn't work for me at all. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug? I'm using a Logitech MX Master 3 mouse on an iMac.
  6. Is there any way to enable canvas rotation with hand gestures on the touch screen? For instance, in Photoshop, you can place two fingers on the screen and rotate them, and the canvas will rotate in that direction. I can't seem to find any setting to enable it and its very frustrating not being able to shift my canvas around freely when I'm drawing. I end up just turning my whole tablet around, which is very inconvenient.
  7. Hi, I'm new to use Affinity Photo and Affinity Design. Till now I used Photoshop. I'm missing some function in Affinity. Can someone tell me how to rotate the canvas in Affinity Photo and how to change the Brush size with the mouse like Photoshop.
  8. Sometimes I need to expand an image to change its ratio. In gimp I would use the "Canvas Size" function first and then "Layer to image size". In Affinity Photo I have been able to resize the canvas but found no option to change layer sizes. Am I missing something?
  9. I wonder if I just screwed up a setting without realising - or if there's been a change in the beta in comparison to the release: The background (canvas) of the layer thumbnails now shows up as a transparent checkerboard - instead of a solid surface as in the main window. Very irritating. Is there a way to turn this of again? Cheers, Timo
  10. Hi all. How do you trim the canvas to include all the objects (but no more0? For example, in Photoshop you can simply use Trim. I can't find a similar function in Designer. Thanks!
  11. Hi Affinity community, I've had a look in the forums but nothing is showing(maybe it's how I'm terming it). Anyway, I have a canvas with a size of 798px *798px. I also have an image 798px * 798px positioned 0px & 0px. I also have a square/rectangle the same size 798px * 798px with 1px orange stroke on the inside positioned at 0px & 0px with no fill. However the square/rectangle does not fit on the canvas. It disappears 1px & 1px to the right and bottom(in this case). Is this an issue with me & my sizes or is it a bug. In the attached image in
  12. Hi, Sometimes I'm assembling components on a page, but I'm working on a canvas that is sized towards the end result. Is there a way to keep objects dragged off-canvas visible or do I have to switch to a "canvas + artboard" model to keep track of those objects? If, for instance, I create an A4 landscape canvas and drag an object outside the canvas area it basically becomes invisible and can only retrieved by either block selecting the whole area and dragging it on the canvas again or highlighting the relevant layer and dragging it back onto the canvas. Is there a setting for the of
  13. When rotating the canvas (View - Rotate Left/Right) the artwork previews/appears pixelated and distorted on the artboard - almost like the strokes and objects get fuzzy outlines. I'm not sure if it's a bug, but its been present since the day I started using Designer and Photo - even vector shapes get jagged edge previews when the canvas is rotated. I've attached a preview to show what I mean (you may need to zoom in to have a better look), but I'm sure anyone who has used the canvas rotation feature is aware of this. Is there a way to fix this? Any help would be appreciated.
  14. When clicking blank area, selected layer will be deselected. This makes people confused. I know this behavior is inherited from Designer which is similar to Illustrator or DrawPlus. But would be nice if you could add an option not to deselect on clicking blank area. So former Photoashop/PhotoPlus users will be comfortable.
  15. Hi, I use macros in batch processing. One job will change the canvas to design a border. I change the canvas in Wide and High absolut by +150px. But the calculation is now fix in the new size and works only with pictures that have the same size. I found no solution to do that in relation to the canvas size.
  16. How do I resize a single layer without disturbing the size of underlying layers or layers above the intended layer?
  17. I think its been motioned before but please add in the ability to use the rotate command in the cintqe touch Wacom to allow for canvas rotation and zoom!!!! Also the ability to map canvas rotate to the touch ring on a standard Wacom!!!
  18. 1. Is there a way to crop the document/canvas/artboard to the exact rectangular area of the selected objects? In photoshop, you could cmd+click on the layer's thumbnail to select the entire object in the layer, then press C to switch to crop tool, and it automatically fits the crop area to the selection, so you get the minimum canvas size that fits the object. How do you achieve this in AD? While it's able to cmd+click on a layer to select the objects, I can't figure out a way to do the cropping for the canvas other than adjusting the document size with numbers. 2. when exporting,
  19. Hi all, I think I should report this really annoying bug that is still present. See screenrecording (it's not about video compression) - to me it seems like canvas is divided to many parts and the part right below cursor renders in half resolution then redraw in retina but jumps back and forward from sharp to pixelated :( Present for a long time - whenever I search in forum for GUI bugs it seems to me like this wasn't reported or at least resolved yet. Sorry if I duplicate such report... Affinity Photo 1.7.3 on iMac 27-inch 2017, Radeon Pro 580 8 GB, macOS 10.15.1 No
  20. Hi, The canvas turns into black some times (Especially when zoom in + pan). When I zoom out, it becomes normal. Kindly have a look at the screenshot. And, I couldn't regenerate this issue. It sometimes happens (not frequently). Note: I have all my drivers updated to the latest version. Version: Affinity Designer 1.7.3.481 Operating System : Windows 10 Pro CPU : Intel i3-4005U with Intel HD 4400 Graphics GPU: NVIDIA 820m 2GB Tablet : One by Wacom (CTL-471)
  21. Two critical bugs when exporting a file as a PSD file. 1. Any layer marked hidden in Affinity Photo shows up in the exported PSD file as empty. 2. In the exported PSD file, all layers are clipped to the size of the canvas in the Affinity Photo document. The first bug can be worked around by unhiding the layer before export. A pain but doable until fixed. The second bug is fatal. We are looking at buying about 10 licences to deploy Affinity Photo to our team but we have to maintain compatibility with Photoshop as some work will go outside where that is their design package.
  22. Hi, I created a 24 x 36" (609.6 mm x 914.4 mm) document in Photo and added guides like this: Then I added 6 mm Canvas Size equally. But after clicking the Resize button, this is what I get: You could see that guides on the left and top are not visible! When I do this in Photoshop, all guides stay where they are! What might be the issue causing this in Photo? Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
  23. Hello guys, I have some control issues. Is there a way to rotate the canvas from the touchscreen other than clicking through the menu or using a keyboard - If not, is there a plugin API to realise such a plugin or a plugin already? It is very annoying if you can't rotate your canvas from a shortcut. Usually if I am drawing I have my Surface standing which means I can't rotate my whole tablet. (On my stationary tablet I got the same issue anyway, but that one hase buttons). In photoshop there is a tool for that. Thank you in advance.
  24. Windows 10 Home 1903, Publisher 1.7.2.471 Watch the attached GIF. The right-hand side of the canvas is overlaying the panels, and the Pages/Assets panels cannot be seen. This is the only time I have seen this so it could be a total one-off. I’ve no idea if switching Personas has anything to do with it but it was something I was doing often. I’ll leave the document open in Publisher as long as I can (maybe next two hours) in case anyone needs me to do any live checking.
  25. Hi . I would like to know what is the blue frame within my canvas means? Thanks a lot, please find print screen attached.
