  1. Affinity Photo is able to paste images from Procreate, but only until you copy something inside AP. After that, it seems AP takes full control of the clipboard and doesn't allow pasting anything from other apps. The only way around this is to close and restart Affinity Photo. Additionally any image with transparency pasted from Procreate comes into AP in the full size of the original document. Even if it's a small paint blob in the middle of a transparent canvas. A "trim layer" option would be useful to clean up any pasted layers with transparencies.
  2. Hey everyone, I'm quite new to Affinity Designer and have come across the following issue: ​ ​I'm trying to fill different shapes with patterns. Since I haven't been able to find any preset geometric fill patterns that ship with Affinity, nor a pattern fill feature, I've resorted to: 1. Select the shape 2. Activate the Fill Tool 3. Change Fill Type to Bitmap ​4. Use an image texture to fill the shape However, when I ​CTRL + C​ on one shape and then CTRL + SHIFT + V​ on another shape in order to copy that fill, with the same orientation and scale, it seems like the bitmap/texture then get
  3. Hi, i don´t know if there is a form but when i copy by pressing ALT and dragging element AD don't show the distance from one element to another, so i must just move it, and the click again and move to see the distance between elements and i think it should be automatic. By the other hand when you use restrictions in a group and you copy and element inside this group and paste it in other place, i think restriction for that element should reset unless you copy and paste all the group. Just a recommendation.
  4. When you make a selection (using the marquee tool) on a layer and subsequently copy that selection, everything works fine. See photos ‘Capture20’ and ‘Capture21’. But, when you change the size of the selection, by using quick masque and the move tool, the chosen selection is copied incorrectly. See photos ‘Capture22’, ‘Capture23’, ‘Capture24’, ‘Capture25’ and ‘Capture26’.
  5. Can someone tell me how to protect my elements like the one from the download section (e.g. Destroyer by Pokedstudio) please.
  6. Hello, I've been using Af Designer since october but since then I see that when I copy something like a rectangle form one document to another both its dimensions and its lines stroke change. In Example from the starting the rectangle is 1pt stroke width, when copied in another file something change...it's weird because exportations are good but I never trust on strokes. Same thing happens on the dimension of thw drawing... hope this could help Denis
  7. Hello, I seem to be missing how to copy and paste fill and stroke for text exclusively. When I copy and paste style, to text, my text sizing and spacing changes also. I only want to copy the fill colour, and the stroke (colour, weight, mitre, draw behind fill) and paste that onto my art text. I do not want to also copy font, text size, character spacing, and other position and transformations. Is there a quick setting I am missing. thank you very much for you guidance. Mars
  8. Trying to copy an image on top of another image and move it around like I did in Photoshop with no success. Two separate images. Have tried paste inside and I do see the new layer but it does not show up. Help appreciated, I am looking in help file as well. Thanks
  9. I've searched the forum and online and haven't been able to find too much, or even a specific topic about these paste features. I use a lot of artboards and find that copying and pasting from one artboard to another to keep the same position of the copied contents on the different artboard would be the best. Equally, being able to paste the copied contents in front or behind a selected item/layer would be even better.
  10. Is there any way to paste an object into the exact same place (X & Y coord) from one artboard into another artboard in AD? Every time I try it seems to retain its Y coord, but not its X coord. Thanks for the help! :)
  11. Hi MEB, I experience the following bug in my current project-file: 1. I open my file 2. select 3 objects 3. hit "copy+c" OR use the menu to copy these objects 4. move my view around (to another artboard) as result: the selected 3 objects are squeezed and somewhere in the project file (far away from the original position, outside of their artboard). And because of the fact, that they are symbols, all artboards suffer from this bug. You cannot undo this step - because it is no real step (means: if I close my file, there is no popUp that asks for saving my modifications. M
  12. In Photoshop it's easy to copy or move fx from one layer to another. I can't figure out how to accomplish that in Affinity Designer though. Try this: 1. New document in Affinity Designer. 2. Sketch 2 rectangles on the page. 3. Give 1 of them a drop shadow. You should then see the white "fx" mark at right on that layer. 4. Try moving that "fx" to your other rectangle layer. You can't. 5. Hold down the Option key and try copy the "fx" to your other layer. You can't. 6. Right-click on "fx" and see there is nothing directly applicable to "fx" If there is no feature to accompl
  13. I have installed Affinity - I used Serif Photo before. I cannot seem to do a simple function such as: Using the Marque tools, selecting a selection of the image, selecting copy and paste into to the image/layer. Same for Cut command and pasting somewhere on the image. Am I missing something basic here? Using Windows version. Thanks
  14. Hi guys, I finally got into reediting in AP after a long time. I know the questions thatfollows have been answered before, and trust me I searched in the forum but to no avail. 1-So the first one would be, keyboard and mouse shortcut for increasing and decreasing brush size, as of right now no combination of strokes seems to work. And no, left and right bracket keys are no viable option nor do they work on an italian layout keyboard 2-the slice tool in export persona: I do post images on instagram after having them resized to 2048px on the long edge, so for pano I usually use the clise tool
  15. Duplicate or Copy change the empty space distance btw. the lines - WHY ? PLEASE HELP No matter how I copy the group or duplicate multiple circles - the distance between the lines changes in proportion ? Why ? I want to keep the distances, how to do that please ? My steps is : 1. Drawing 10 Circles w. distance (step) of 0,5 mm (r-10mm, r-9,5mm, r-9mm ......) :blink: GREEN COLOR 2. Group this all 3.

  16. Recently, I tried to copy a small group of elements from within a fairly large Affinity Designer file. After whirring away for a few seconds, the app just crashed. This repeats any time I try to copy in this file. It doesn't happen in other smaller files. I had not had any problems with this file whilst I was working on it actively. It is only on reopening it to grab a group of elements to use in a new file that this bug appeared. This problem occurred after a recent update to of AD. Is there a solution?
  17. AD fam, On many of the AD tutorials I see a click/drag operation used to select an item you want to isolate for copy/paste purposes. My question, is the click/drag done while holding down a keyboard key (i.e., the 'alt' or 'command' key)? When I click/drag over a given area that I'm trying to cut out, I see the light blue square/rectangle cover said area...but when I release my finger from the mouse it seems I'm unable to 'capture' (copy) the selection. I know I'm missing something simple - please have mercy on me. Thanks in advance. -Christo
  18. Hi, Sorry, I'm total newbie to vector art and AD. I was wondering what's the difference between Copy/Paste (cmd+C and cmd+V) and Duplicate (cmd+J) other than one less command? Thanks
  19. Hi there, I have been using Photoshop CS4 for some years but thought I would give Affinity Photo a try. I am stuck at what seems a very basic hurdle. I have a PSD 420 x 287 px. Within it I have several layers each an image of 400 x 267 px. The background is white and therefore gives a 10 pixel border. All I want to be able to do is merge visible, select all and copy and paste to another layered PSD, this however only ever copies the image and not the image plus background ... how do I copy and paste the whole area selected? Thank you
  20. Apologies for the newbie question here, I have the feeling I'm overlooking something very obvious but can't seem to figure it out. I've created a logo which consists of 6 layers. The layers have been grouped together. My question is a 2-parter: 1) how do I duplicate the group/image-as-a-whole...then separate (drag?) the dup from the original? and, 2) how can I then copy/paste the dup(s) to a new document or artboard? Thanks in advance for any help on this. christo
  21. Is there any way (in Designer or Photo) to copy the Layer Effects of one layer and apply them to another layer (so you can have precisely the same settings)? I used to do this in Photoshop by command-dragging the effect onto another layer (I think it was command ... some modifier anyway!). Many thanks :-) (Edit: I like the fact you can have the Layer Effects panel open and then select different layers and the panel updates to show that layer's settings. That helps a bit with entering the same values on another layer.)
  22. Hello, I've been using AD since the first beta. I'm encountering problems when copy-paste simple drawings from a file to another one. It happens that Designer changes the dimensions of the drawings, sometimes the scale, sometimes the stroke thinkness. :wacko: When I close it an reopen, it goes ok, but minute after minutes copying and pasting, the size of the drawing changes pasting from file to file. :blink: AD 1.51.43 :ph34r:
  23. I wish to copy (or export) the style of an object as CSS. For example: Like you can do it in Photoshop ...or within Sketch ...or in Autodesk Graphic / iDraw.
  24. Hi , i was wondering if it would be possible to copy and paste content in SVG code or HTML5 from Affinity Designer to any text editor?
  25. I raise this thread from AD beta forum to here because I cannot find the same report by searching. It also happen to the current store version. Please fix it next beta. Cheers :)
