  1. Hello Affinity fam! I would like to start using these forums more often and share with you the pieces I'm creating. Here is my latest completed piece. I leave you the information of the piece below. Greetings and thank you so much! https://i.imgur.com/d52WZnm.jpg
  2. Jigsaw puzzle II FREE puzzle assets pack. Affinity Photo tutorial. Affinity Photo tutorial. An easier way to create a jigsaw puzzle of your own photo. I have included my FREE Digitally Fearless puzzle pieces asset pack making it easy to create a puzzle in just a few minutes. https://youtu.be/SpVPytzCOdk
  3. Howdy friends! I was building a few vector shapes for a design and playing with the Geometry options to "knock out" overlapping parts of the shapes, etc. At some point I inadvertently hit the "XOR" function in the Geometry toolbar, and … well, it brought up a slowly pulsating "Xor" progress bar on top of the window. There's no option to cancel or dismiss it; I can't edit or do anything with the document while it's there; and I've tried Escape, Return, control-C, command-C, option-C, and a bunch of other keystrokes to try to kill the process. It's been running for several minutes now … I selected a few objects but I don't think it was anything THAT complex to take so long to figure out? I could kill the app, but … well, that would lose a few minutes work, and … is this normal? Thanks!
  4. Hi I have been looking for a tutorial on the use of the geometry tool. Can anyone advise on its use?
  5. Pop Up Affinity Photo Tutorial This is a pop up photo manipulation, but I thought I would change it up by adding some floating graphics from the background. The tutorial uses shapes, geometry, blend ranges (blend-if) perspective and more. This Digitally Fearless Affinity Photo tutorial was requested by one of my subscribers. https://youtu.be/z1_drshbedo
  6. Hi, can I let the alpha channel of the fill color of 2 paths (each on an own layer) be operated with by a selected mask operation such as subtract? How? Thanks, u&i
  7. Every time I use the dividing tool the app is instantly closed on ipad
  8. Hello World, Thank you Affinity, your product is amazing. I will be sharing this work on LinkedIn mentioning Affinity Products. You can also check it on YouTube as well. Almost forgot, you can also use the slider yourself to draw haha I am still testing it though. give it a shot https://boroji.com/test/index.html Thank you again, Keep up the good work Geometric_Pattern-Timelapse.mp4
  9. Hello World, Here is the geometric Pattern Part 2. I will be sharing this work on LinkedIn mentioning Affinity Products. You can also check it on YouTube as well. You can also check the website now https://boroji.com Thank you Affinity for your amazing products Geometric_Pattern-Timelapse-2.mp4
  10. Hey folks, I'm just wondering what' the difference between the two options in the Layer → Geometry menu. At first glance they both seem to have the same function – maybe someone can enlighten me? 💡 Cheers and … wash your hands MrDoodlezz 😄
  11. I hope that I can describe the problem correctly. I am working on a logo, which should consist of the letters O and K. The K should be in front of the O, as well as behind the O. After I drew an ellipse, which should represent the O, and converted it to a donut, I wrote the K over it with the Artistic Text Tool. Next, I selected the two layers (the layer with the ellipse is on top) and used the geometry function divide. Then I deleted protruding parts from the K and colored other parts that should be displayed above the ellipse. Unfortunately very fine lines are always displayed. I don't know how I can prevent this. Can anyone help me? For clarification I have exported a PNG and I also provide my afdesign file. ok.afdesign
  12. Hello everyone! I have opened this thread with the intention of recommending an improvement in geometry tools, generally I have used Adobe illustrator and corel Draw although more corel draw than illustrator xD in fact by the simplicity of their tools especially those of fusion and trimming, I explain... Having two or more objects and wanting to make an intersection is usually the area where the intersection is formed and the rest is eliminated, isn't it? in corel the intersection creates a new object (of that intersection) leaving intact the two selected elements, this is very useful to illustrate human figure where sometimes we do not want to lose the elements and rather create a new one. Another tool and I think that of the best is the back less front and less front behind, usually seems absurd, say (hey but for that I can place the object in front and subtract it from the back, but believe me the practicality of having two buttons summarizes a few steps and is quite comfortable. and maybe I say it from the perspective of a user who uses mostly coreldraw, but every designer who has tried those tools feels that all other programs should have the same function. (that's what I said when I tried several corel things and decided to change my software) affinity has a great power!! ahhh and forgot to recommend you to use flat icons, I don't know why but I think the user experience could improve a little with them. Greetings!
  13. Hi, just a quick question: Could anyone confirm if the name for the Geometry icon label is the same now for the Mac and PC versions? Formerly they had different names "Geometry" for Mac and "Operations" for Windows. I am on a mac, so I'd need to know if this is now consistent or if I should prevent users about this when explaining the UI. Thanks!
  14. Hi. I would like to know if there is anything in Affinity designer like the Adobe Illustrators transform effect? (See video below) I am wanting to make complex geometric patterns. I know about power duplicate in affinity but it seems like there is far much more control with the transform tool in Illustrator, plus it saves a lot of time. I have posted an example video below from Adobe Illustrator, this is what I am looking to do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCwmEfCsPdw&t=328s Can any one point me in the right direction? Or are we limited to power duplicate in Affinity designer/photo? Any ideas/help will be appreciated! Thank you for your time. Dan.
  15. The algorithms for some of the geometry tools seem to be slightly off when calculating where the finishing shapes should be. In the video, I placed a blue circle under the red one to show that the combined shapes to be divided before I do it don't match the combined shapes after I hit "Divide." geometry_tool_problem1.mp4
  16. Hi all, I am trying to create a drop shadow for text but when it comes to subtracting the layers needed that overlap, both layers delete. I have read a few posts on here, with replies from moderator MEB (QA Support) but none seem to be able to verify my problem in particular. I have expanded stroke of outline text to shapes instead of lines as to not incur a boolean operation, but even still I cannot seem to get the two layers that are both shapes to subtract from each other and be left with a sweet ass drop shadow to my text. I have followed along to a few tutorials by 7th Season Studios on youtube but those tutorials are from the older version. If someone would be able to help me and even suggest some channels on youtube for designer tutorial channels of the latest 2019 version I would appreciate it greatly. Thank you very much for your time and your help.
  17. I'm running into a problem when making an intersecting compound. Basically, the German Flag seems to shift to the point where you can only see the bottom third or so (see video). I've used this function many times and have never seen this before. Affinity_Designer_6_29_2019_10_03_10_PM.mp4
  18. Hi guys, First of all. Thanks for an awesome programme - which I have started to get more and more familiar with. I am currently working on making different geometric designs, and was wondering how you would, say divide a circle into equal parts, in a more easy way than making each separate line by yourself? This would save me a lot of work, and I really hope there is a intuitive way of doing this. Just for the record, I´m a newbie into graphics and was formerly frightened by the complexity of previous programs and have taken the leap with affinity - be gentle in your advices :) Thanks in advance!
  19. Hey Affinity Experts, I have been trying to erase a top border on two combined custom shapes. One shape is dark suit jacket while the other shape is a white shirt shape on top of black suit jacket shape. My problem is that when I layer the shapes a very thin black outline remains from black shape. See example. How can I remove this black top outline? Do I have to erase it or is there a way to layer the shapes that causes the black border line to disappear at overlap. Thanks!
  20. Hi, I'm new to Affinity Designer and Photo, bought them last year, using both tools to develop my job as an Environmental Engineer. It's possible to develop a spherical grid or geometrical grid manager to draw worlds like Lazy Nezumi software? Thank you!
  21. In this short tutorial I demonstrate the Geometry operations (add, subtract, intersect, divide, combine) in Affinity Designer 1.6.0 (destructively and non-destructively) with some samples. Keep on drawin' Norbert
  22. I often use geometry layer to mask (clip) other layers. Unfortunately there seems to be no possibility to mask/clip everything inside the geometry. It would be great to be able to invert geometry layers without rasterizing them.
  23. I have a simple shape (collection of lines drawn with the smart pen tool) and a line drawn vertically down this shape. I simply want to just trim off the surplus part of the shape. When I select both the shape (curves) and the line (again, all drawn using the pen tool), press ALT, and then select 'Add' on the geometry option something strange happens. The long way around this is to simply draw the end segment I want, but I want the shape to be nice and clean without worrying about snapping to all the anchor points around it. What's the simple way of trimming off surplus curves to a shape?
