  1. Please add an option to disable the colour wheel from rotating when selecting a different colour. I want to have the orientation fixed, so I can more easily predict where I need to move the picker to.
  2. HI, I have created a master page with a colour background, but it displays differently on the page to which the master is applied? I am attaching a screenshot of of the master page A (aqua colour) the page on the right is the actual page colour as it displays.
  3. I want to make text that looks like it has been written with a gold. Can some one please tell me if and how I can achieve this? I've attached some examples.
  4. Hi guys, I can't find a field for entering hex colour codes in Publisher. Same problem Affinity Photo and Designer. Someone can help?
  5. I have a simple JPG generated by some software, and I'd like to replace one colour (straight black or white) with another, or make it transparent. So far, any attempt to use the colour replacement brush tool have not given any result, and my search on the forum found its use to be an as yet unanswered question. I was hoping this brush would act as pick-and-replace tool (if pixel is <colour set> then replace with the colour set as front) but evidently I have this wrong. As I have both AD and AP, here are my questions: - which is the best to use? - what is the exact process to replace a specific colour x with a colour y? (layer select, any settings that can mess it up, which brush to choose, how to choose the colour to change and set the colour it will be replaced with). - just in case I come across this later, is there also a way I can control the *range* of colours accepted for replacement (the cat example isn't universally the same orange). I'm clearly missing something simple, but I can't seem to identify what.
  6. My problem affects all 3 Affinity programs: Publisher, Photo and Designer... The preview of the selected color does not match the entered values in the view at all. For example (see images) white is displayed in a bright yellow. In Publisher at least the object is displayed in the correct color; in AP and AD also the objects are in the (wrong) color as in the panel. Also on the settingspanel are the icons in different 'whites' (picture 2) However, the colors are printed correctly. I have already installed another graphics card and also tested it on another monitor - the result is the same. I hope that my problem can be seen on the attached pictures. First picture is a screenshot of AP, 2. the settingspanel, the third one are the colorsettings. PS. In other programs (e.g. text program) the color palette is displayed correctly. Does anyone have an idea? Many thanks in advance for them. Greetings from Germany Hans
  7. Win 7 Publisher V. 1.10.0.1127 Why does the colour chooser give me TWO sets of values for one CMYK colour? (BTW, colour is spelled with a "u" in my version of the program). And, there is no "Help" entry no matter which way I spell colour. The red circled values are the ones recorded with the swatch panel.
  8. Greyscale become multicoloured when printing from Affinity Designer. Obviously a conversion to/from color profiles happens inside Designer. How can I prevent this from happening? (This happens to all colours. It is just shown best with greyscale.) My printer expects data in the same colour profile as my AD files working profile. (ISO coated v2 (eci)) When exporting a PDF/X1a and printing with Adobe Acrobat everything is OK.
  9. Hi I have placed this SVG file into the document as seen in the image. What I want to achieve is having that file in white. Like PNG file, so that the image would be white, instead of blue. Ultimately I'd like to put a whole png file on that backdrop, which actually includes the Icon. But I'd want the icon and the Travel Perks UK part all in white, and not have the white background. Is this possible please and what's the best way to end up with the best resolution of the smaller image, on top of the back ground. Thanks
  10. I have large images with pixel shapes (representing cells) and each cell type has a certain colour (6 in total, plus black background). I need to rapidly colour-test different colours to find the best combination for visibility. I have not been able to find a solution anywhere, as most such approaches are about defining a recognisable shape and then altering colours - this is about changing many 'cells' across a large image in one go. Thanks
  11. Just got a job on where I need to copy and paste from Affinity to Illustrator CS5 for vector distortions and simplify path, but have noticed that there's a colour shift once pasted into illustrator using the same CMYK profile (FOGRA 27) this has always worked great before, copying and pasting back and fourth retaining colours perfectly so looks like a bug with 1.9.1 Pasting back into Affinity from Illustrator works as expected (no colour shift) so looks to me like the Affinity clipboard as reverted to copying and pasting RGB for external Apps (bad news for a CMYK workflow) I've tried switching on and off the copy items as SVG which makes no difference, even fired up Designer 1.3.2 which works perfectly copying and pasting back and fourth see screen grabs As a temp workaround I'm exporting PDFs from Affinity which open correct in Illustrator and copy paste back to Designer correct
  12. Hi, I have created a basic black PNG watermark and loaded it onto a new image brush. So far so good -- it applies. My understanding is, as this is a brush, I should be able to set the colour, e.g. white. But nothing I do changes the colour when I apply the brush. What am I missing here?
  13. Hi all This has been the week of figuring out how to get my colours sorted in Affinity Photo. There is no direct support for the ColorChecker Passport from X-Rite in Affinity Photo unfortunately but I did figure out how to do it with some help. If you use X-Right ColorChecker Passport these are the steps on how to do it. This might be painfully obvious to some people but for me it was all entirely new and took a while to get my head around so I hope that this is some use to people. 1. When you are shooting your photos in a location take a photo of the ColorChecker Passports colour cards and the white card. Make sure they are in the same place as your subject matter and are properly exposed. 2. Import all the photos from your session along with your pictures of the ColorChecker. 3. Open your photos of the ColorChecker in Affinity Photo crop them down if you like and export them as 16 bit Tiff files. 8 bit might work but I have been going with 16 4. Open ColorChecker Tiff photos with the new beta version of ColorChecker Passport Camera Calibration software in the ICC tab. 5. Export your ICC profiles naming them something so you know what photo shoot they go along with. 6. Close down Affinity Photo and then re-open it to refresh the ICC database 7. Open your photos from the associated photo shoot and go to the Document tab and select Assign ICC Profile and select the ICC file you just created. And if all goes well your colour is mostly corrected. 8. Now to set the white balances correctly. Go to White Balance in the Adjustment section. Click the Picker button and then click on the photo that you took during the photo shoot of your white card. This will then automatically make the adjustment. I hope that helps some folks. I did not understand any of this stuff three days ago and it was no fun trying to get my head around it for the first time. If anyone has tips on how to improve upon this workflow please share. I am by no means an expert on this subject. All the best!
  14. My first piece of work done entirely on iPad. Absolute game changer, thanks for all your efforts Serif. It was worth it. (Hi-res of this will end up on instagram later, once I’ve worked out how to reformat for square on iPad)
  15. Is it possible in Affinity Designer to change the colour of the box after changing to Textframe? That would be a nice function for me.
  16. I have been searching for a while now, but cant find any "select same colour" feature. All I can find is a feature request post from 4 years ago asking for this. Surely this rudimental feature has been implimented by now. Selecting and replacing a colour is one of the main benefits of vector work, to not have this seems crazy to me. I know the dev team is small and your product is so superior to Adobe is so many ways, but missing fundamental features like this makes it unusable for real world projects. I hope I am being a dullard and a select same colour feature is available. If not please add it to the top of the list of features in the next update.
  17. Hello: The stroke colour of the table is different from the thumbnail of the table pannel: Thanks.
  18. Whenever I edit a global colour value I have a chance the popup will move around the screen after the edit. See the attached video, it makes more sense when you actually see it. I can’t find a way to consistently trigger it, but it feels like the closer the popup is to the bottom edge of the screen, the more likely it is to happen. But it’s not a certainty as you can see. I feel this might have something with the physical screen size of my device? It’s a 9.7” iPad Pro and the screen is getting cramped by today’s standards, maybe the low amount of space is making the popup be “unsure” of where to stay? I also feel like this is less likely to happen when the device is in portrait orientation, it still happens though, just less frequently. Thanks! IMG_0538.MP4
  19. Hello again! I was given a hand-drawn logo to make into a digital EPS. I used the pen tool to create a black outline. Now I want to fill in with colour and some gradients, but I won't let me. I searched but couldn't find a solution. I've included screenshots to show you the layers(a few of them). Thanks so much!
  20. I'm having a problem; I think I mentioned it before; I'm just hoping that there's been an update or something since it seems like I'm missing something. I have white text on a black page that overflows (correct term?) into black text on a white page. When text is part of the same paragraph I can't seem to alter it without altering the entire paragraph. Ideally there'd be a way of having the text automatically change style when it becomes a part of that text frame. But even if that's not possible; can I not change the colour of the text if it's in the same paragraph? And even if that's possible it's frustrating because if I change any of the layout I have to keep on going back to make sure no text has crept into the wrong section and is the wrong colour which is even harder because it may be white text on a white background and black on black and, thus, invisible. Maddening! Video of the problem. Affinity_Colour_Prob.mov
  21. [English version below] Hallo zusammen, ich erstelle Pläne und Grafiken für digitale Präsentationen (Fachgebiet Architektur). Folgendes Problem: Ich stelle die gewünschten Farben in Affinity Designer mit dem HEX-Code ein. Wenn ich die Grafik exportiere, wird diese immer mit knalligeren Farben exportiert, als eigentlich eingestellt. Ich benötige PNG, JPEG und PDF-Formate. Mit allen Formaten, mit allen denkbaren Einstellungen habe ich bereits herumprobiert. Das Programm, das Dokument und im Export haben die gleichen RGB-Einstellungen und ICC-Profile. Eine zeitlang ist bei der Einstellung Neuberechnung: Lanczos 3 die gewünschte Farbe bei einem Export als PNG-Datei herausgekommen. Seltsamerweise funktioniert auch das nur ab und zu. Da ich mich mit Farbeinstellungen und ICC-Profilen nicht sonderlich auskenne, hoffe ich, dass mir hier jemand weiterhelfen kann! Anbei ein Screenshot aus Affinity Designer (nutze die Windows-Desktop-App) und ein Besipiel für die exportierte Grafik. Die gewünschten Farben waren: 000000 (schwarz), AED9E0 (hellblau) und D36135 (rot). Heraus kamen schwarz, AED9E2 und D76436. Ich würde mich freuen, wenn jemand mein Problem erkennt und mir weiterhelfen würde! Danke! Hello everyone, I am creating plans and graphics for digital presentations (architecture). The following problem occured: I set the desired colors in Affinity Designer with the HEX code. When I export the graphic, it is always exported with more gaudy colors than actually set. I need PNG, JPEG and PDF formats. With all formats, with all conceivable settings I have already tried around. The program, the document and in the export have the same RGB settings and ICC profiles. For a while, the setting Recalculate: Lanczos 3 brought out the desired color when exporting as a PNG file. Oddly enough, even that only works once in a while. Since I don't know much about color settings and ICC profiles, I hope someone here can help me out! Attached is a screenshot from Affinity Designer (using the Windows desktop app) and a sample of the exported graphic. The colors I wanted were: 000000 (black), AED9E0 (light blue) and D36135 (red). Out came black, AED9E2 and D76436. I would be happy if someone recognizes my problem and helps me! Thanks!
  22. I found a bug in User Interface - which is not changing interface colour after choosing default OS option on macOS Catalina. The bug include just "Artboard Background Grey Level" which stays at the same position no matter which option I will choose - either dark or light. Sometimes it runs with random setting with dark background on Light option and light on dark option. I though it will sop doing that after setting your preferences for both options but it seems like with every instance of the software runs with different background, so every time I need to go back to preferences and change it manually. I'm using automatic options on macOS so either Photo App or Publisher adjust automatically but not a Designer. It's not a huge dealbreaker but it's a little annoying. I would love to see that fix in the next update. I'm using Designer on daily basis so I need to adjust background colour every day. I tried to find that topic before writing that post but I couldn't find it. I think it's worth mentioning. Thanks in advance. Adrian

  24. Is it possible to access swatches from the context menu as shown below? Of course I mean document palettes should be listed here shouldn’t they, logically? If not, why not? Thanks
