  1. I'm trying to create a low-poly picture in AP, and can't figure out how to draw my polygon mesh, fill it with the colors I want, and then make the mesh itself disappear. I've been sampling from the layer below that contains the actual image, and then using that color to fill in the polygon of the layer above. My problem is, that when I do this I can't separate the fill color from my drawn polygons, but without the drawn polygons I can't fill. Any tips would be appreciated on this.
  2. The first time you select Gradient for an object's fill and attempt to change the color, nothing happens. If you deselect the object and come back and try again, it works. This is version 1.3.5. Video attached. gradientFirstUse.mov
  3. I posted the lack of an angle control as a bug originally, but I'm cross-posting here after getting more information: When I set the fill for an object, I use the Fill control provided in the toolbar and its dedicated tab for gradients. I would not expect to go hunting around for a separate tool for this and drag an additional effect onto an object, when fill is an intrinsic property of an object and controls are already provided for it. If the controls for a property are deemed too complicated or difficult to implement in the control panel, I would expect on-screen controls to appear when I select that property (in this case, the Fill color well) from the object's property panel or toolbar. The current design, aside from looking like it suffers from a major omission, leaves the user wondering if he's applying a separate effect to the object. I suspect this will be even more problematic if Designer offers multiple fills on the same object (which I saw in the feature roadmap). I urge Affinity to eliminate the fill control from the Tools palette and integrate its function into the Fill control on the properties toolbar that appears for an object. Not only is this much more intuitive for the user, but it allows you to enable or disable the control as appropriate for the type of object selected, and to cause it to disappear when no object is selected. As it stands, it makes no sense for the Gradient and Transparency tools to be enabled when nothing is selected. Gavin
  4. Hello! I just began on this new application and I have absolutely no idea what I am doing. I am sure that when I get some fundamental basics out of the way, I can refer to other tutorials for further detail. This may sound stupid, but I cannot figure out how to fill color into the objects I create or how to properly snap loose points together. Those are the only two things I have run into trouble with so far. Does anybody have a link to a basic tutorial or a reply on how to find and use the fill tool?
  5. Hi All, I've been trying to replace my current workflow with affinity, however I seem to be struggling doing basic things which I thought would be easy, but perhaps I'm missing something. For example, I've been trying to draw a cylinder in perspective (I'm a product designer and it's the very beginning of a manual rendering), I drew the ellipse at the top, 2 lines from that tapering inwards as they go down, and then an ellipse at the bottom, I can't for the life of me figure out how to trim the bottom ellipse so only the lower half of it is there. In illustrator for example I would use the scissor tool and select the ellipse where it intersects the straight lines and then delete that section. Somebody please help as this is driving me crazy! Secondly, how do I use the bucket fill tool? I can't seem to get it to fill anything? Am i missing something? Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi folks, I have created a path from six cloned paths to form something like six-sided puzzle-piece (see attachment) Now I want to fill this puzzle-piece but it only fills out the 'tounges' of the piece and not everything that is surrounded by the path. I am sure this behaviour has something to do with the way I created the puzzle-piece - in combining multiple simple not-closed paths into a single closed path. But how do I get my path to be handled as a closed path and be filled like the way I want it to be filled? Thanx in advance Rasmus Streckenteile_cut.svg
  7. In Photoshop, if I sketch a rectangle (or any other shape, or use the Pen tool to create one) then give it a fill and a stroke, if I then choose Layer > Layer Style > Color Overylay, it affects only the FILL not the STROKE. But if I do the same in Affinity Photo (AP), the Color Overlay affects the FILL and the STROKE. It would be very useful if a new feature could be added to AP's Layer Effects dialog such that I can choose if the effect will work on the FILL or the STROKE or BOTH. Thanks.
  8. Hi friends, I have found that when I am using the vector brushes in AD, I cannot take the fill off. It seems that I have managed to do it once in while, but due to pure chance or trial and mistake, I would beg you to give me the ncessary info, in order that I may have control over this tool. Thank you so much in advance. Rosa
  9. Hello, everybody, I'm curious when the radial gradient direction & distance features will be coming to AD. This is a feature I use of Illustrator's gradient tool all the time. I've attached examples of the tool's results, for those reading this who are unfamiliar with the effect. In Adobe's UI, the feature is implemented via the software's Gradient Annotator, either by dragging the small dot just past a radial/elliptical gradient's origin, or by clicking with the gradient tool on a radial gradient, somewhere away from the Gradient Annotator. Anyway, especially for applying realistic lighting effects to rounded objects, this feature simply is a must-have. In the mean time, anybody who knows an AD-native technique for applying (a reasonable facsimile of) such an effect in AD, I'd be happy to hear your suggestions. Until then, I'm going to be ⌘-tabbing a lot, in order to make and mask raster fills when I'd really rather be using vector. Thanks in advance! —Russ Johnson Murfreesboro, TN
  10. Is an appearance "function" be available that allows for multiple strokes, fills, be added to an object? or am I missing this feature somewhere? Thanks
  11. If I try to open an SVG file with no fill color indicated (appears as white on white when previewing in Finder, so you can't see the image), Affinity Designer crashes. Sample file: <path d="M56.14,28.375H35.274V7.506c0-1.809-1.462-3.271-3.274-3.271c-1.811,0-3.274,1.463-3.274,3.271v20.869H7.862 c-1.813,0-3.274,1.464-3.274,3.272c0,1.807,1.462,3.27,3.274,3.27h20.863v20.869c0,1.809,1.464,3.272,3.274,3.272 c1.813,0,3.274-1.464,3.274-3.272V34.918H56.14c1.811,0,3.272-1.463,3.272-3.27C59.412,29.839,57.95,28.375,56.14,28.375z"/>
  12. It would be mighty cool if Affinity supported independent blend modes for Fills vs Strokes (including hopefully multiple Fills and Strokes in the future).
  13. Sorry if this is a basic question or has been answered before, but I really couldn't figure it out. How do you fill a space between three or more concurrent curves? Say you have three lines which form a triangle, how can you fill the formed triangle with a colour? See my example: I drew the circle, joined the respective opposite marks and I have obtained those polygons that I filled. My approach was to redraw the formed polygons using the pen tool and then filling them, but there must be some other way. Or if I want to fill the curvilinear triangles that are formed with the circle - how do I do that? Thank you. desen_modular.svg
  14. I know of the shortcut to "Fill" and then chose a color from there, I think there should be one for filling with foreground and background to work faster with masking
  15. Hi, I was wondering if I'm not doing something right...I've tried using the flood fill and gradient fill and I get no color. I would like to start with a basic layer and color it. I'm new to affinity so i didn't know if I missed something. Thanks
  16. Once I select edit->Fill, and then click 'apply', the modal box keeps popping up on a recurring loop. The same happens when I cancel the fill. This is happening when I'm trying to fill a mask.

    Colour Selection

    I don't know if this has been brought up or not but it is something that looks like a bug to me. I have attached a PDF that shows the problem. When I use a colour and then later I use a fill of none, the last colour selected remains highlighted. If a fill of none is chosen, then no swatches should be highlighted in Swatches Palette. If it is a known bug, sorry.
  18. Selecting multiple objects with different Strokes and/or Fills should cause the Fill & Stroke indicator on the Tool and Color palettes to preview neither object's fill nor stroke colors, but instead produce a "multiple fill" and stroke color indicator for more accuracy. This is also very handy for making sure that all the selected objects are indeed identical, without having to compare each one individually. You can check the functionality in Illustrator to see what I mean...
  19. I was playing with the Bitmap Fill, which is buried within the Gradient Fill type Pop-up menu. This doesn't make too much sense as a Bitmap is not a type of Fill Gradient.... Perhaps a better place is as another tab under the Move tool's Fill pop-up palette from the toolbar across the top:
  20. Hi I have Just bought affinity to replace illustrator and i am loving it but i am still trying to figure out how to do certain things. I have started to create a ad for new balance as a project for college i traced the shoe using the pen tool but i didn't close the shapes i just started new lines. Is there a way of colouring the shapes or will i have to close each line and make a shape. the attachment might make this make more sense. Thanks Untitled.afdesign
  21. Importing before.pdf results in incorrect fill color (black instead of light gray) of the rectangles in the bottom-right of the figure, and an incorrect (enlarged) image size, as can be seen in after.pdf.
  22. This one just covering the basics of the fill tool, also covering using a repeating texture with a bitmap fill...
  23. Is there a way to convert outlines to filled shapes? The reason behind it is that I'm creating icon glyphs and would like to use the compound shape to "disconnect" a few lines – whereas I can't do that with just an outline and probably would need to convert the line into a stroke.
  24. Hi, Seems like a bug. When I select group of curves or multiple curves and try to edit gradient or color (I select gradient tool and line context) lines get filled instead. Sample screen attached. I'm on Yosemite MBP 2009. BR
  25. Does AD have a shortcut for changing this mode, of fill and stroke - http://prntscr.com/4y8uav, except key "x" ? I mean, like in Illustrator, keys - "<" for colour, ">" for gradient and "/" for none. It will be very useful to have keys like for colour and for none. Drawing will be quicker.
