  1. Hello all, Feeling dumbfounded at the moment, I've been editing this picture for quite a bit now, and i wanted to add a new fill layer after selecting my foreground but to my surprise it didn't work, tried it with a pixel layer then using the fill tool, still doesn't work. Tried with other pictures and it works just fine there I don't understand what's going on Thanks ^^ EDIT: it's not just fill, it's everything that doesn't work on this page anymore, except the previous adjustments i made, nothing seems to affect the image anymore
  2. Hi Ive just noticed that when clicking the double headed arrow in the colours or swatch palette the selected object also gets changed but when I use the keyboard shortcut X it changes it in the palette but not on the selected object? thanks Gary PS - currently going through the Work book and really enjoying it but on p104 it says this shortcut os is shift + X which doesn't do anything.
  3. It would be great to be able differentiate between the fill and stroke selector while using the Color Picker. Quite often I find myself applying a stroke color when I want a fill. Maybe a small cursor overlay or something would do the job.
  4. Having independent blend modes for stroke and fill would be really handy. For example, I recently discovered the Erase blendmode, which is a godsend for not needing to manually expand and boolean things. Something I like doing is to give stuff padding by expanding the shape, "bulging it" in all directions, and then cutting that out of what's beneath, giving a sort of cell shaded look, but as if the outline is the background color. Being able to have the Stroke have an Erase blendmode would make this extremely handy and powerful, and I can imagine using strokes in "add" or "screen" blendmode for a sort of glowing outline.
  5. Hi, seems to me the Edit / Fill... Shift + F5 not working properly (the custom color/noise part). When I select this choice while being on Pixel layer and choose custom color by one click, and I do add some noise.... no noise is added...... Thanks Jindra P.S. Could you please also add a quick "Fill with 50% Grey" option as this is surely very often used Fill action :rolleyes:
  6. Hey. I have a shape in a document with a specific fill color (bright blue) with noise. In another document, I have a different document i have a shape that I would like to give the same fill color and also add noise. I filled the shape with the exact same color. Everything looks identical. However, as soon as I add noise, the color shifts towards green. Even if I drag the noise slider to zero again, the color shift stays. Any ideas? I am using Affinity Designer 1.4.1
  7. 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 gets transformed to the orientation/size of the target shape. I attached a screenshot to demonstrate what happens when I copy the fill from the left shape to the right. ​How can I get the behaviour that I want, i.e. have the fill get transferred from shape A to shape B without changing the orientation/scale/shear of the fill texture? ​Also, is there a vector pattern fill in Affinity Designer that I may simply have overlooked? ​Thanks a lot
  8. Do this: 1. Launch AP. 2. New document. 3. Choose the Paint Brush and a color. 4. >> Note it says: "The assistant has added a new raster layer" 5. Close without saving. 6. New document. 7. Choose the Flood Fill tool (paint bucket) and a color. 8. Click on the page. 9. >> NOTHING HAPPENS. It does not make logical sense to me why the Assistant would assist me in auto creating a pixel layer for the Paint Brush tool but refuse to create a pixel layer when I click the Flood Fill tool on the canvas. Can someone explain the logic to me? If there is no sound logic behind it, I am inclined to submit a new feature request. (Keep in mind I am comparing my experience to Photoshop, where I don't need an assistant to create a paintable layer because a paintable layer appears automatically in Photoshop.) Thanks.
  9. I've already posted this in Questions & Feedback but since it doesn't seem to be implemented yet, I'm adding it as a request. For example, I have a square which only has a fill color (no stroke). If I click on another shape, let's say a circle and I'm changing it's stroke color, when I click back on the square, I would like the color panel to auto-select the fill attribute (since it's the only attribute the square has) instead of keeping the stroke attribute selected (from the previous change). My logic is that I would want to change it's color rather than add a stroke to it. This way would eliminate an unnecessary extra click and speed you up when you'd have to repeat the action several times.
  10. Edit/Fill is nice. It would be even nicer if you had a '50% grey' option (for use with contrast blend modes, of course). Thanks!
  11. Hey, here's another one of my Affinity Designer tutorials. In this one you will learn how to add gradients to objects using the fill tool. If you like this video, give it a thumbs up and don't be scared to leave a comment :)
  12. 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
  13. See the title! Whenever I try to apply a color from my swatches to text, or a shape, or curves, etc, instead of changing the fill, a stroke appears on the item with the color I'm trying to fill with. This wasn't happening before today! I'm not sure I changed anything, although maybe I hit some hotkeys by mistake without noticing. Cheers!
  14. As soon as I apply an outline effect to geometry layer (e.g. ellipse), the fill and stroke opacity is gone. It reappears as soon as I delete the outline effect.
  15. I must be missing something. 1. Open existing file. 2. File=>New then specify size. You will see a blank document. 3. Switch tab to opened existing document. 4. Select eyedropper tool. 5. Select color. 6. Return to new file. 7. Fill (Shift+F5) is greyed out?? 8. Select Flood Fill Tool. 9. Click on new document. 10. Right click on document. Nothing happens. Try a new intermediate step. 7A. Select rectangular marquee tool. 7B. Draw a rectangle around the entire document. Proceed with 8-10. Nothing happens. So, what is the secret to flood filling a document? This is pretty basic, but I must be missing something in Affinity Photo's workflow.
  16. I have a simple repeating pattern that is 100px square that I would like to use to fill a rectangle that is the full size of my project. However when I got to fill tool > bitmap and find the pattern. it fills the whole rectangle by scaling up the image rather than repeating it. Is there a way to do this?
  17. Hello, In Photo (Win10) is there a way to set a bitmap fill to be exactly 100% of the original size of the file that you use? For example: I'm using a pattern file that is 100x100px. When I use that as a bitmap fill in a Photo document I want the base pattern to be exactly 100x100 px as well. Is there an exact way or a way to put in a numerical scale value for the bitmap pattern file? Thanks, Jeff
  18. Hey folks I'm new to this forum and affinity designer. Forgive me if this is a silly question but can you draw fill or shapes, like the brush tool in Adobe Flash? With this I mean in the same way you draw strokes as lines which are series of single nodes connected, is it possible to draw fill like shapes as lines of "double nodes" containing a fill if that makes any sence? Or if it is possible to draw a regular stroke then and convert it into a fill with a certain width following the strokes path if that makes sense? Image below shows adobe flash brush stroke
  19. Hello everyone, So after importing swatches that contain a lot of colors (ase), I found that their name were screwed up wish is not a big deal as long as I can edit their name again. But the process of doing so is very long and not user friendly At the moment : - To identify the color -> Edit the fill by double clicking or right click + edit - Then you can rename it by -> Right click rename. What would be really nice, and I doubt it is a huge issue to do so: - Add a name input directly in the "edit fill" popup bellow the drop down menu for example If you still want to have the confirmation of the user because it can't be undone, you could add a lock next to the name input so people have first to unlock before editing. But at least, it doesn't require to leave that popup and right click on the fill to edit the name... It also solves the issue that when you right click -> rename and push enter to save it looses the color fill you had selected on the swatches.
  20. I'm trying to create a background, solid colour, layer with a colour to match one in the image. I am running into an odd problem because I don't know AP well enough yet. I use the I short cut key to pick the colour (rye dropper) and that shows correctly as the foreground colour But when I fill the new pixel layer, the fill colour is the complementary colour. It seems that the shortcut I key has somehow changed the fill colour to the Inverse colour? Where did I goof? Jim
  21. I apologize if this is a common topic, but I searched and none of the solutions have worked. I made a shape using the pen tool, and when I try to fill it, it ends up doing this (see photo). The photo is zoomed in because I can't show the entire project yet, but that's not important. Why does it do this and how can I fill the shape? I don't know why there's straight lines going through the shape, I didn't put them there... they appeared when I tried to fill the entire shape. Any advice please? This is a recurring issue and it's really preventing me from moving forward. Thanks!
  22. Procedural workflow has and is growing and becoming a large driving force in content creation. Something I always knew would be make things very quick to iterate or change, and also keep things consistent and simple, would be referenced colors. So maybe your documents has a palette with named slots, and when you go to select a fill/stroke color, you can optionally select one of these named slots. Other fills or strokes can reference this same slot. Then if you decide you want to change colors later, you simple adjust this palette and every object using those slots gets updated. To extend this concept, it could almost be like symbols but for object appearance where you can have synchronized styles, that way all the parameters are shared, like stroke width, profile, etc.
  23. Can some one tell me what the difference is between a fill layer and a pixel layer, if there is a difference? The one difference that I know of is that when a fill layer is used you can continue to edit a gradient but on a pixel layer you can't. cheers, Jason
  24. Hello everyone! I've got another feature request: Could you enhance "Set Fill to Black and White"'s (in Preferences -> Keyboard shortcuts -> Miscellaneous) functionality? Right now, it just sets the colors to black and white. If I remember correctly, in Photoshop, it also automatically sets the currently selected color to the default one, which is black. This can be very useful, especially when all the UI is hidden. Because then you always know what color will be selected when you press the shortcut for "Set Fill to Black and White". So if you need white, you can just click D (my shortcut for "Set Fill to Black and White"), then X. Best wishes, Shu
  25. Currently, if you click on an empty (hollow, unfilled) area that's surrounded by an object, Designer will select that object. This is frequently (perhaps even usually) not what you want, especially since there can be numerous objects surrounding the empty area (thus making the selection uselessly ambiguous anyway). Currently in Designer you have to use the Option key to cycle through ALL overlapping objects. That is a deal-breaker. I find it incredible that this is deemed an acceptable way to work. How many illustrations don't have objects depicted within the boundaries of other objects? In the attached example, I can't select the blue line by clicking on it, even though nothing's covering it. Please fix this.
