  1. Howdy folks, I'm trying to fill a a vector image that was created with the pen tool and I'm having some difficulty finding a way to color it in. I don't fully understand this pixel persona, but I've tried both rasterising and using pixel brushes and using the vector brushes, but am not getting a good result. Right now it's okay if it's just one color, though I'd like to figure out how to shade as well. Can anyone provide some guidance on this? Attached is the file I'm working with. Thanks in advance! drinking buddies v4.afdesign
  2. Hello there, I work in AD. The software is great, thanks for that. I need to export to PDF or SVG or EPS, does not matter to me ... including layers, that I could open the file in Adobe Illustrator and could see the layers. I was trying to find out on affinity forum, but I was not successful. Is there a way to do that please? Unfortunately, exporting to PDF does not do the job. Nothing is rasterized and after opening in illustrator there is just one layer instead of 3 created in AD. And what more, there are separated objects, the ones with fill and the ones with strokes. I mean, in AD it is an object with fill and stroke and after exporting to PDF and opening in AI these are two different objects, one with stroke and one with fill. I don't know why is that ? Thanks for help. I attached a file. 1100235_58_ultra_terno.afdesign
  3. Let’s say I have an object with a fill and border, both have the same color but the border’s lightness is 10 points lower than the fill’s. I would like to change the color/hue/lightness of the fill and have the border color/hue/lightness change with it while keeping the lightness at the same distance from each other. Sounds complicated, I hope you understand what I mean. Is there a way to achieve this?
  4. I draw two triangles with the Pen Tool. they intersect each other. How can I fill the intersection region with a color? I've tried the Fill Tool with no success.
  5. Can we have a keyboard shortcut key that applies a colour fill to a selection in AP as in Photoshop. In order to fill a selection in Photoshop you use "shift/delete and this applies the selected colour to that selection. This would enhance the user experience and workflow of AP. By the way i'm a Mac OS user. Thanks
  6. I've been looking at some development of a very impressive auto-fill filter for lineart on G'mic and thought it would be something the Affinity devs might be interested in. Basically, it analyses artwork with an algorithm to determine contours and shape closures which can then be filled as a base for painting. It speeds up a monotonous colour blocking step of painting. Not a priority feature at the moment, but I thought it would be an amazing addition for illustrators working with raster imagery. I'm sure affinity could simplify the tool even more for usability. I've posted two videos that demonstrate how it works. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-3aBQeuBc4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rl76PJZTuio
  7. I have a piece of graphics with “Winding” fill mode. When I convert it to an Object it changes the fill mode to “Alternate”. Fill mode can not be changed on Objects either.
  8. When I do Document / Fill, the color is applied to the whole layer. How to protect alpha?
  9. Currently, The Edit / Fill command fills up the entire layer. It would be very handy to have the option to protect the alpha in order to fill in only the content of the layer. There's a discussion here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/30465-fill-protecting-alpha/
  10. Newbie question... was trying to define an area and then fill it. Somehow I defined an area that now shows "running dashes" (for lack of a more accurate description) and I CANNOT DELETE/REMOVE this area from my document. Appreciate the help. (first couple of days with Affinity Designer!)

    Fill menu slow

    Hi guys, one thing I noticed on the Fill/Stroke tab, they get stuck, open up slowly or scrolling down the Pantone palettes is very sluggish and slow. Any way to solve this? :)
  12. You can not change the color of fill tool, when trying to fill pixel layer with Solid Color.
  13. How do I get rid of the line inside of my objects that separates my outline from the filled area? What am I doing wrong? Thanks for the help! MOOP.tiff
  14. Is it possible to assign separate blend modes for an object stroke and fill with Affinity Designer? For instance I'd like to apply a blend mode of Multiply to the black fill of a rectangle but want to leave the white stroke color as normal. I have this same question for opacities as well. I ask because I'm able to do this in Illustrator and use it all the time. If there is another way of approaching this in Designer w/o having to duplicate the object (one for fill and one for stroke), please enlighten. Thanks!
  15. Web developer here, bought Affinity Designer in hopes of switching off Adobe completely. The app was great, got the job done, then I go to export the icon as an SVG and... it saves the color black as "fill:#000". Why Affinity why? :( It should save the color black with no fill tag at all, which will still appear as black, but lets web developers like me then alter the color dynamically via CSS. svg { fill: #888; } Am I hopefully just missing this setting somewhere? Kinda breaks the whole process of making svg icons. I don't want to have to use some important rule or something to overrule such a silly mistake.
  16. Hello, Ronnie McBride created a really nice rope brush for me and I am wondering if it's possible to apply a fill to the brush shape, not the path which the brush follows? The image I am working on now is attached and what I am trying to do is fill the rope shape with a fill. I've tried a few things but it seems the brush pattern isn't recognized as a shape to fill? The only way I found I could add a fill is to rasterize the path with the rope brush applied.. is that the answer?
  17. Is there a way to use the transparency tool to only apply on the fill or just the stroke of the object… I cannot seem to find a checkbox or setting for this to only affect a particular attribute. Thanks!
  18. It would be a very useful feature to copy the features of a text , color type, size and color contour like Corel Draw funcion.
  19. Hi all. I included this in a thread in the bug-report area, but it really belongs here. I think consolidating the fill controls into a single panel would clarify their use for users. Currently, an object's fill control presents a series of tabs that offer conflicting functions. The tabs represent different types of fills and are exclusive of each other; therefore I submit that these fill types should be offered in a drop-down list and not as tabs. When the user selects a fill type, the panel can display the appropriate set of controls in the panel and the appropriate on-canvas controls (like gradient angle), which currently do not appear at all when using the Fill control panel for an object. Also, the current panel for gradients can be improved by indicating to the user that he needs to click on those circles to set colors and properties, and indicating which of the controls pertain to the selected control point and which pertain to the entire gradient. A colored highlight makes the current selection more clear than simply having a bigger circle and smaller circle (and that size difference isn't even shown on first use of the panel; I assume this is a bug). Users should be able to right-click in that gradient display to insert, delete, copy, or paste control points. Currently it doesn't seem that there's any way to determine where a new one will be inserted. All of the current buttons, except Delete, suffer from major ambiguity: If I press Insert, where will the new point go? If I copy one, how do I paste it? Or does Copy here actually mean Duplicate? Without some hint, however, I don't think users would ever guess that they could add more control points. And then a bunch of Affinity's work would go to waste. I vote for putting a label below the gradient display instead of the buttons, instructing users to right-click to add or manipulate control points. It's more clear, and space-efficient to boot. And finally, I had no idea what "stop" meant. I guessed it was some kind of option for determining what should happen beyond the end of the gradient, but of course the functions offered by those buttons didn't seem to make sense in that context. In any similar type of editor, I see "control point" used more than any other term. I think the flexibility of Designer's fill function is remarkable! Some revision of the UI will help users find it and take advantage of something that Affinity clearly put quite a bit of effort into.
  20. Hi, please If you could explain to me which is the difference between the Transparent and the Fill tool, for me they look like do the same thing but has to has some differences
  21. I have a question. In illustrator is something like Live Paint Bucket that allow you to easy filling objects. Is there something like that in AD? Or need to redraw everything using pentool and fill ii with colour? For example I have toothed gear that I want to colour, made it using some circles and lines. Second thing is there a way to 'Origin' point, eg. in the center of circle and move/rotate everything by exactly this point? Its showed there. Maybe its already that in AD, but couldn't find it and searching didn't show something usefull.
  22. I created System Palettes instead of application Palettes as I use the same colors across multiple Apps. The problem is, when I open them in Affinity Designer, they aren't sorted alphabetically (it might be an issue with Affinity not using the OSX Dialog Box, which I like...feels more integrated), But When you have color variations with similar names I would like them to be grouped together. I'm aware I can sort the colors within a palette, but not the palettes themselves. Is there anyway to fix this?
  23. Have you logged this to the lists? I think it's not too hard to fix because swapping color can work very good on any shapes. Cheers. :)
  24. Hi. I've attached a picture. The background rectangle is set to black, but appears as dark grey when I use a black glow on the photo. I want the black glow of the edge of the photo to disappear seamlessly into the black rectangular background. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance!
  25. 1) HSL Color Wheel - Please ad Hex code box, I use HSL a majority of my design, but when my client wants his hex color choices I want to be able to quickly in HSL just do a hex code. 2) ANY color picker option - Please make the CLOSE highlighted so I can just hit enter. 3) Add short cut for New Fill Layer in the Adjuments Icon menu
