It used to be that an elliptical gradient had the first start in the centre of the object, and for the last point to be surrounding it near the edges (see Screenshot 2023-06-23 at 12.53.53) Now, for some reason, an elliptical gradient in any new objects I create have the first point appear in the left middle bit of the object, with the other points surrounding that instead (see Screenshot 2023-06-23 at 12.49.12) in most project files. The only way for me to get an elliptical gradient now is to copy an object (in this case a rectangle) from an existing project and change its colours because there was never any way to move the centre of the circle as far as I'm aware. If there is please tell me. That would be appreciated.
I use three periods with spaces between them (. . .) for ellipses. I need to make sure that Publisher doesn't split it when wrapping to the next line, like leaving the first period at the end of the line and dropping the other two to the next line. I seem to remember stumbling on a way to do this, but I can't find it now. Can someone tell me the best way to make this work? Thanks
In this video, I show you how to create a simple dot pattern using ellipses. Using the alignment tools and snapping feature, it’s very easy to set up a pattern. Once your pattern is ready, it’s a simple matter of using the copy and paste functions to create multiples and keep them aligned perfectly. You’ll learn how to move, align, flip, and rotate objects using keyboard shortcuts and menu options. If all this is too much right now, jump over to my website: www.jencodesigns.com and you can purchase the original Affinity Designer file from my Comic Text video that includes the dot pattern asset I used, the color palette, and all of the illustration layers, objects etc. Don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE to my channel - It really does make a difference. Thanks for watching and Happy Creating. Jen
I have constructed scores of maps with thousands of small ovals to represent site locations. When I brought these into Affinity Designer (AD) they are transformed into curves. When exporting groups of these curves as SVGs the size of SVG doc is quite large compared to exporting an SVG from the same number of ellipses created in AD (a quite small doc). Questions: 1. is there any way in AD to convert these imported curves into ellipses, as AD converts curves to donuts or pies? If not, this would be an extremely handy convert to add to AD in the future. 2. Is there any method to keep the Illustrator dots as ellipses rather than have then converted to curves?
