  1. For some reason I thought Affinity Designer allowed Plugins but it doesn't. I would like to replace my Fireworks obsession with Affinity Designer. The things I value most in Fireworks are - vectors, as separate objects, can be grouped. (tick) - objects can have effects applied and be editable as vectors (tick) - effects can be extended using plugins, even photoshop plugins, allowing for editable vectors to display with torn paper effect and change the torn paper settings as needed. (fail, no plugins, no plugins as layer effects) Affinity Photo also does not extend the layer/live effect
  2. The year is almost over, so let's share some reusable fireworks items for your possible flyers and new year cards. - Note that those firework assets are always groups of vector elements, thus if you want to recolor some of them you best select the whole individual group. These assets are usable for things like shown in the following examples ... The corresponding fireworks assets file as a zip-archive: fireworks.zip
  3. Is Publisher going up against newish tools like Sketch and Adobe XD? In many ways those tools are layout software so it seems like similar to what Publisher would do. I have spent far less time with Publisher then I have with the other Affinity tools so it's hard for me to know how much it competes with prototyping. What I have seen so far it looks like it is more of a competitor to ID and Quark.
  4. I've been using Fireworks since it was Macromedia. In my mind it is the best graphic editing program out there for web developers like me. Simple to use. Intuitive and very functional. I've rarely run into something I couldn't do with it. However, of course, Adobe is dumping it and it doesn't work so well on Mac's High Sierra. It's currently limping and I fear it will become unusable completely very soon. Ultimately, what I need is the ability to open a PNG from fireworks (LAYERED - NOT FLATTENED) and maintain editablity (text, objects etc) in Affinity Designer. I've downloaded the
  5. One of the primary reasons why I bought Affinity Designer was as a replacement for the no longer supported Adobe Fireworks. As such, I have MANY PNG files that I need to be able to edit that were created with layers. But so far, I have found no way to open a PNG file and retain the layers. Is there such a feature within Affinity Designer? One of the problem files is attached. There is another question that I have not tested for yet, but that relates to the above question. Is it possible to open a PNG file with frames and retain the frames, with Affinity Designer? Thanks.
  6. Love affinity, however, can anyone suggest a workaround when your work is all in fireworks files containing pages and shared layers? I own affinity photo and designer, but both lose the pages and opens my pngs as one flat file. Maybe another interim bit of software that can do it until affinity is able? In a real pickle as my newest imac can not open my older adobe fireworks software. Not Im left to subscribe to adobe to open them and save all the pages out as layered PSDs. Not only is this tedious but if I have to subscribe to adobe it kinda renders affinity moot and I really want to keep up
  7. As one of the 30+ year users of Fireworks who refuses to use clunky Adobe products because it kills my billing time, I am coming to appreciate the speed and power of Affinity, BUT, for a company that did so much that's thought out so well, the one thing that Fireworks had that I miss would be the freeform distort tool. Effectively you could grab any corner and tweak the box for images or text and stretch or flatten it to any perspective. The best part was that you didn't have to "rasterize" the text and lose the ability to change it for size, type, color, etc. as you were manipulating it.
  8. I know this would be huge among the web designer community, but I also know it would be tough since it would probably need to be reverse engineered somehow... but if a Fireworks import was supported.... dang. This app would be THE design app for all the former Fireworks users who were recently screwed by Adobe. Thoughts?
  9. Hi there, I have a lot of vector graphics made on Adobe Fireworks in PNG 32 layers format. Is there a way to import separate layers in Affinity Designer ? thanks...
  10. Hey! I just started using Affinity Designer (win beta) over Fireworks about a week ago. Thus far I absolutely love it and everything I've wanted to do has followed a similar logic to how things work in FW, which makes the transition quite easy. Today I ran in to the first situation where I can't seem to figure out how to do something as well (or better) than in Fireworks. That is to export a circular logo in transparent PNG-8 form optimized as well as I did all the time with Fireworks, without having jagged edges / antialiasing issues with the logo. I've attached all the files of
  11. Since this subject comes up often I am writing a definitive statement. Fireworks (layered) PNG files There is no such thing as "layered PNG". The PNG standard does not define a way to store layers, and only deals with flattened images. Fireworks saves out additional layer data to PNG files in a proprietary format using a private tag. A definition for this proprietary data has never been made public. A PNG saved by Fireworks can still be used as a flattened image by any application that can handle PNG files. These applications will handle the standard data and ignore the propr
  12. Dear Support Team: I'm in the process of trying to transition from Fireworks to Affinity Designer, but I'm having some difficulty. Please see the attachment. I've laid a Fireworks window over the Affinity Designer workspace. Both images are at 100% and both use the same logo (American Overseas School of Rome). However, notice that the logo in Affinity Designer is grossly pixelated and the color red is much brighter. Can you help me understand why this might be happening? Many thanks for your time and assistance. Best, Tim
  13. I've come to understand slicing AD better but i'm still enormously frustrated, relative to how I used to work in Fireworks (apart from it's bugginess). scaling/moving artwork objects under slices (in export persona) opt-drag cloning slices 8bit png alpha tranparency scaling/moving artwork objects under slices (in export persto use ona) My main problem is that AD presumes I will scale slices relative to layers. Actually frequently I need to scale layers (objects) to confirm with slices. IE the slices provide a visual grid that i need to confirm to. To achieve this now I either l
  14. Hi, I'm a heavy fireworks user and really liked que Affinity Designer. Here some suggestions that for me is kind of feature killers. 1 - Measure Rulers form perfect ui alignment and creating objects. 2 - Fit to Canvas (Clip Canvas) quick button (at the top maybe?) 3 - Snap panels at the bottom of the program UI. Here example image:
  15. Hello, I am new Affinity Designer user. Before that I use Fireworks program for 14 years (started with Macromedia Fireworks 4.0) and now I think it is time to look for a new drawing tool. Now I investigate the Affinity and I have some questions, perhaps I just do not know where to find the necessary drawing tools: 1. Is there a "Symbol" instrument ? Combined into one "Symbol" (object, element ....) several graphical primitives? I found in Affinity only the "Group", but it is not the same as "Symbol" in Fireworks. For example in Fireworks - I can make many copies of the "Symbol" (Push
  16. Hello! Very nice application. But... subject. Fireworks layers support will be in future or not?
