  1. Hi all, I'm considering buying Designer but one thing that I can't find is if there is a way to fill an object using vector or patterns. I only find gradients and bitmap. I know we can duplicate an object to create hand made pattern but I can't then edit the repetitions like if is a bitmap fill. Cheers, Juan
  2. When two or more shapes are alligned (from anchor to anchor), and these shapes have no stroke, it results in a transparent edge instead of no edge. See Example. Each of the triangles here are perfectly alligned from point to point, which should leave no space between shapes. The stroke is set to no colour, and the weight set to none, so I would imagine that the 'fill' should take up 100% of each shape. However, it seems that the stroke (which shouldnt exist), stil takes up a fraction of the shape, and allows the background to show through ever so slightly. The obvious way to get around this is to slightly overlap each shape - as you can see, there are quite a lot in the above, so this would be impractical. Is there any obvious way to get around this? Apologies, this question has probably been asked before, but I was finding it dificult converting this question to a searchable term.
  3. I do most of my drawing in Adobe Ideas on my iPad, which creates compound vector shapes, which I then use the Live Paint feature in Illustrator to fill in. It makes colouring extremely quick and easy. Is there already, or is there a planned equivalent for Affinity? It's basically the only thing stopping me from making the switch from Illustrator to this, as it's a really nice app otherwise. Many thanks!
  4. Hi all. I've spent way more time than I should have trying to get a gradient fill to go vertically in Designer. I don't think I've ever before seen a graphics application that offered a gradient fill but lacked any way to control its angle. Even if there is a method buried somewhere in this application, it may as well not exist. It needs to be in the gradient-fill controls. Baffling.
  5. Hi, Affinity Designer newbie here, using desktop version on an iMac. I've opened a couple of the sample Designer files to see how they work and everything looks fairly familiar, or at least intuitive. One thing that's puzzled me is the fill colour in the background blue in the sample file 'Prison of Arts'. It's a dark blue colour, but has a slight graininess to it, rather like adding noise in Photoshop. A new rectangle, filled with a colour also takes on this graininess. I quite like the effect, but can't replicate it in a new file - nor can I turn it off in the sample file 'Prison of Arts'. I've explored settings, effects and all sorts, but can't find how to add or turn off the effect - any help gratefully received. Screenshot at 200% scale attached.
  6. I apologise if I'm missing something obvious, I've searched through the Affinity Photo online manual and the help forum and not found anything. Every graphics app I've used until Affinity has supported using multiple layers to constrain fills from the flood fill (paint bucket) tool - think of scanning in a line drawing, putting it on an upper layer, setting to multiply and using the line art to constrain fills on a layer or layers below. (I'm talking all pixel layers, BTW, no vector stuff). The flood fill tool has a control for tolerance and toggle for non/contiguous but no control to respond to single or multiple layers. Is there another way of doing this or is the feature not yet present?
  7. I finally give up. How do you stroke something? I drew a rectangle with the marquee tool and want to stroke that line. I do it all the time in Photoshop, but I cannot find a way to do it in Affinity. I also can't find any instructions or tutorials online. There seems to be help for what to do with the stroke after you have it, but I need to create it in the first place. I have the same question for filling the selection. thank you
  8. If you align stroke other then to middle while rendering there will be some graphic artifacts. Fill color will show up there it should not. Or there will be transperent gap between stroke and fill. That makes stroke alignment feature unusable for quality export graphic. Is there a way to fix this?
  9. Sorry if it's duplicate post. It would be nice to have a pattern fill feature with a few patterns to start with instead of gradient tool and bitmap fill. Also quickly create patterns by drawing a square on your shapes and save them to swatch library. Or..at least if you save gradient fill with a bitmap image, and reapply that fill on another shape to get the same size of the pattern. See the image, they all get a different size.
  10. I'm just starting out in Affinity Designer for iPad, and I'm trying to perform a pretty simple fill operation on this eye that I've drawn (see attached). I come from an Illustrator background and it's incredibly simple to do in there. Basically, I've drawn the outer shape of the eye, and added a line through it. I'd like to fill in below that dividing line with one color, and use white above it (as you'd expect for an eye). The problem is, I can't seem to fill in the eye color without creating another complete shape that overlaps the outer shape along the bottom and left sides of the eye. I can work around it like that, but it's tedious and would definitely end up taking forever on more elaborate illustrations. Surely there's some way to fill in color without completely overlapping lines all the time, right?
  11. https://www.useloom.com/share/05cafbf1cd084a988ffda991f3d8c119 In my document, at first the pencil tool took about a minute to render what it was drawing, I thought it had crashed. Now it seems to have sorted itself and draws in real time but still strips out the fill when drawing. Doesn't matter if a stroke is selected as well or not, it always strips out the fill. I only want to draw with a fill so this seems buggy. As the video shows this also happens in a new document.
  12. Hi, Is there a way to outline / fill a stroke? Thanks.
  13. At my current job we use Corel Draw in our graphic design department. I have switched to Affinity Designer and Photo for my personal work and these are my 5 features I use very often in Corel that I would love to see added. 1. Boundary Tool - Have a print/cut Roland printer and this tool is essential when creating a cut line around multiple objects. 2. Envelope Tool - Use this quite often for text effects. Converting to curves and manipulating from there works alright but Corel leaves the enveloped object still as text and can be still edited. 3. Flood Fill Tool - I'm able to replicate this using boolean operations but involves way more steps and occasionally will end up with odd quirks and unwanted results. 4. Blend Tool - I believe I have seen this is coming on the roadmap so hopefully soon 5. Raster to Vector Tracing - Also seen this is coming. Currently using Inkscape for this feature and then exporting/importing into Designer All this being said Designer is still one of the best applications I have used. How great this application already is has me very excited for future updates and enhancements.
  14. See attached recording. File type and file location don’t make a difference. Any ideas? Best, Russell 79F3B8B8-A12B-4601-941C-A166A85F110B.MOV
  15. As the thread title implies, the colorpicker behaves strange when trying to pick up a color near it's invokation from a fill color panel. It mostly refuses there then to pick up a color under the loupe, see here ... BTW, AFAI have seen this odd behavior is equally among all tools of the Affinity line!

    Designia Neon Styles

    Hi everyone, I add 18 neon style fillers (nice effect with text) Designia Neon Styles.afstyles
  17. With the Pen tool, go ahead and create a 5-sided star (see star_empty_center.png). You see the pentagon in the center being empty. What I want is for the center to be filled (see star_filled_center.png). => My current "workaround": duplicate the (star) shape select both shapes and apply boolean "Divide" to segregate the 5 triangles with Node Tool: for each triangle, break and remove the line that belongs to the pentagon select all triangles and apply "Join curves" It's cumbersome, but it works. My question: is there any simple way / an option to tell AD (before or after drawing the curve) to fill any overlapping areas to make it look solid ?
  18. I'm getting reproducible behavior with this sequence: Make a selection on pixel layer>Edit>Fill>Deselect When I deselect, the unselected part from the original selection also fills, making the whole layer a solid color. See screen captures for the before and after. You can even see the selection is active in the before image. I found that this also happens when I use the keyboard shortcut SHIFT+F5 but it doesn't happen if I fill using the fill tool (paintbucket). I've been experiencing this for a while now. I think I noticed it even before I installed Mojave on my late 2015 iMac, but definitely ever since I installed Mojave.
  19. Hello, I created 25 types to fill objects. Designia Styles.afstyles
  20. The image below shows some curves I drew with the pen tool. How would I go about filling in the space in between each curve with a different colour? Here is an example of what I need: All help is appreciated. Thanks, Dan
  21. Hello! I prepared new 25 styles for A-Designer, A-Photo and A-Publisher Regards Designia Styles 2.afstyles
  22. I am having an issue with the fill function not behaving as expected on a selection in Affinity Photo on the Mac. I am trying to fill an area of an image in white. Please see attached screenshots of the problem: 1. Selection 2. Preview of fill in white (looks fine) 3. End result of fill (does not look fine) 4. End of result of fill with the selected area deselected. As you can see the fill along the top edge of the selected area is not coming out as expected or indeed previewed and is creating a kind of artifact/rough edge. This is undesirable. I have tried messing about with the refine options of the selection including feathering etc but have been unable to improve the situation as the preview here also looks fine. Additionally I have tried to just paint the selection in white however the same issue still arises. This is not a one off either, this is happening in different areas with different selections. I am very new to Affinity Photo admittedly and am just getting started but have searched the web and been unable to find anything specifically related to this problem. I would be grateful for any help as it is driving me nuts or to know if this is in fact a bug. Many thanks

    Bitmap Fill

    Hi, I'm having a problem with bitmap fill. It doesn't work. When I import a seamless pattern (or any pattern), the edges of the pattern extend into lines as soon as I fiddle with the settings. Hard to explain -- see attachment, where I'm trying to fill the floor with a wood pattern. Is this a known bug? Or is there a workaround? I'm using latest Mac OS, with Affinity products updated by iTunes, currently on the latest build. By the way, this hasn't always been an issue. Bitmap fill used to work fine on this same computer, maybe a year back. I'm missing this feature. Cheers.
  24. The numerical transparency values for the fill in the table are missing...
  25. I had created a text box and I would like to fill it with a color and even change the stroke. If this option already exist it will be great to learn how to do it, otherwise, it can be an interesting implementation because this will avoid an extra layer as a background for the text.
