  1. Hi, can I let the alpha channel of the fill color of 2 paths (each on an own layer) be operated with by a selected mask operation such as subtract? How? Thanks, u&i
  2. hello designers , i am a new affinity designer user and i need someone to help me (look to the video) , and i need it to be like this (look to image) thanks Desktop_2020_05.11_-_10_21_12_01.mp4
  3. So I tried making a shuriken. For that, I wanted (at first) to make a triangle and cut out a bit of that in the middle. I made a quite simple shape, wanted to duplicate that, flip it horizontally and then combine those. But there remains a seam, no matter how I snap the two together. Someone on an unofficial Affinity Discord Server (credits to gromofdoom) helped me out by saying the snapping was never really working in this software and I need to overlap the two halves, combine them and then delete the unneeded nodes. Why does Affinity make such a simple task this painful? That's a
  4. I can never seem to get the ADD, SUBTRACT, DIVIDE, COMBINE functions to work right, can someone please tell me what I may be doing wrong or if it's something with the software settings? https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cqfeDnZfQU
  5. Hi all, I'm unable to use the combination tool to combine multiple rectangles, thus removing shared paths... I have checked over and over again and the rectangles are snapped to eachother... but in this case only two rectangles combine correctly (see this gyazo gif: https://gyazo.com/21002501d5011a724c36965e86098b60 for more information) This has been the bane of my existance for the past months now... the alternative is to convert to curves and break the curves manually, which is just too time consuming... Is this a known issue? Am I doing something wrong? Kind Regards
  6. I'm working on a monogram for a client and converted the text to curves so I could change the shapes. This is what I ended up with. But I would really like to combine these into just one object. It's not working. Combine and add fills in the loops. I know I can group these and keep them together that way and is what I will do now because of the deadline. But can anyone show me how to combine separate text converted to curves, into one object without filling in all the centers? This is something I do fairly often, especially when using text for an SVG cutting file. I also d
  7. Hello Am trying to learn and achieve a logo copy by drawing curves and am running into issues. 1. Is there a better way to achieve this logo trace ? the figure 1 is what am trying to achieve and have drawn curves to match the underlying drawing. I propose to subtract curves from the underlying light grey circle to get solid bodies. 2. When I go and expand the stroke to add/combine the curves for subtraction - I get the figure 2 issue with uneven boundaries. Can someone help me with combining the curves or show a better way to achieve the result ? thanks
  8. Okay.... gush this is a nightmare and actually an easy task in adobe illustrator.... so, I have this two forms: and i want to cut out the upper part, like this: first thing i tried, was substract, which doesn't work at all, so i went the old way and used divide and like illustrator i got many little parts. Okay, i cut everything out and get this: and now i only need to combine those lose parts, in illustrator it's "unite". Here, we have "add" and "combine" . So, i cklick on "add"and HOLY MOLLY, what a mess: even if i select only tw
  9. Installed AD week ago, everything worked as a charm until today. Started crashing when trying to combine several simple shapes with boolean tools. Reinstalled. Reset settings. Cleared default. Nothing worked. Starting to feel a dissapointment and regret... AD is latest possible version - 1.6.5.123. Not tryout but bought.
  10. It's happen to some converted fonts. Try my file. Geometry_Add_Bug.afdesign
  11. I have a script with several letters that I need to combine and then stroke, I must combine them or else the stroke is overlapping other letters and does not achieve the desired effect. The problem I am having when Combining or Adding from the OPERATIONS tools the center of the Loops in the letters aren't being knocked out, except for the "o" in the word "Lord". I am stuck and I can not figure out what I am doing wrong. Please Help :-) Thank You! Please take a look at the screenshots below...
  12. In this short tutorial I demonstrate the Geometry operations (add, subtract, intersect, divide, combine) in Affinity Designer 1.6.0 (destructively and non-destructively) with some samples. Keep on drawin' Norbert
  13. I'm trying to do Geometry operations with symbols but they seem to be greyed out or unavailable. ---Repro steps--- 1) Create a shape using the rectangle tool (M) 2) Go to view/studio/symbols 3) Create a symbol from the rectangle tool 4) Drag this newly created symbol onto the canvas multiple times 5) Select several symbols and note that you are unable to add, subtract, intersect, divide, combine Is there a way to do these things with symbols?
  14. Hi everyone, here´s a Questin comming from our PR appartment. We are Architects, and our Company produces Plans and views of Architectural Projects using CAD software, that will be printed as PDF files.. now, when importing them, Illustrator, as well as Affinity Designer seperate lines ore layer with for example dotted lines or to exploded separated lines.. so you get hundredts of seperated single shapes, that before belonged to for example ony on Autocad line, that was just told to be dotted... and.. using Designer or Illustrator kills the possibilty to change the
  15. Hi! I picked up Affinity Designer the other night and I'm loving it so far. Since I'm new to the whole concept of design/designer, I'm working through the tutorials you provide and as I'm on the second "for beginners" (ketchup for blood) tutorial I ran into what appears to be a bug in how combine works on Windows 10. If I select the two shapes on top and click "add" the two shapes combine just fine. However, if I hold the "Alt" key down as suggested, the two shapes combine but the curve loses the majority of its fill (the attached images might explain it better). Interestingly, if I move the c
  16. Hello! I'm new around these parts (first post) so I apologize if this question has already been asked and answered. I did some searching, but I couldn't find anything regarding this. My question is: How does one merge or combine a self intersecting path/curve (to make a compound path) in Affinity Designer? I design type and it's desirable—crucial really—to overlap a shape/path within itself for maximum flexibility and ease of manipulation while working. Unfortunately, when it comes time to combine the final artwork I'm left with compound holes where the paths intersect themselves.
  17. If i click on two shapes and press the "Add" button, it combines them fine. (see eg1) if i hold Alt and do the same thing hoping it'll keep the original shapes in layers when combining, it does that but gives me something completely different to the first attempt not pressing Alt. (see eg2)
  18. I spent the past two hours reducing a logo from a billion separate elements to three (white, light, dark) for vinyl printing. But this shouldn't take as much effort as it did. I couldn't find a simple way to 'flatten' this image, so I had to manually add/subtract/divide many elements many times. The outermost line and white background are not a problem, simply select everything and add. But the darkest shade is made up entirely of outlines of shapes such as the fries. So I cannot simply add those together as it will create one big clump. I also can't just make them all outline
  19. Hey guys, I've been working on some time lapses for the last few weeks and I'm ready to create my videos I have a lot of photos and I wanted to flip every photo to create a mirror copy - did that easily with batch photo processing in affinity photo Now I want to take the original and the mirror and join them together - but I can't see how to do that Can anyone help out? And if possible, a way to do it is as a batch process since I have over 600 pairs to join Thank you Chintan
  20. Hey, I'm new to Affinity Photo and I would love to know how to finish or add a curve/line between 2 separate curves. Enclosed you will find a screenshot, so that you can understand better what I mean with this issue.
  21. I can't do "Merge Selected" (Ctrl+Shift+E) if there's no pixel layer at the bottom of the selected items in the layers list. In the help pages it doesn't say that the bottommost layer of my selection has to be a pixel layer. Please check the screenshot below.
  22. I'm unable to flatten the document with "merge selected" (Ctrl+Shift+E) if there's no pixel layer at the bottom of the layers list. Why do I need to have a pixel layer there for this to work? I don't get it. :mellow: In Photoshop I can flatten the whole document no matter what kind of layers are there and their order. Please see the screenshot below.
  23. Ok this is starting to drive me nuts. I've been using Affinity Designer for at least 6 months for various small non-professional projects and it's been fantastic. I'm trying to create a drawing of the side panel of a bar-top arcade game I'm building which I'll print out and use as a cutting template. I've drawn two shapes and want to join/ add them. The two shapes have given every indication of having snapped together, but every time I select them using the move tool and hitting the add button it groups the two shapes/ curves rather than adding them and losing the line between them
  24. Maybe it is not quite a bug but should be improved. Try my example file. Cheers :) . add_objects.afdesign
  25. Combining/merging objects in Coreldraw and illustrator the order is first or last object select. AD has it bottom object only, would it be possible to change this to an active object like in illustrator or Coreldraw?
