  1. I frequently need to lo load quite complex PDFs, containing multiple nested groups, and edit them in Photo. These are BIG PDFs with thousands, maybe tens of thousands of items, but the problem is not to do with size, I can replicate on small PDFs. None of the items is labelled and they are generated automatically so different parts of an image that are all visually adjacent may be in very different groups within the PDF. I can do almost anything I need, but the process is extremely tedious because of a selection problem I can't seem to get round. If I select an item in the loaded PDF, most times it takes me to a Level 1 Group in the Layers Panel, but not the item. If I then open the group in the Layers Panel, select a random item in the group and then try again, it will take me to a Level 2 group in the Panel. Repeating this process multiple times I eventually get to the item I am trying to select. Clearly Affinity knows where the item is, because it always takes me to the right next level group in the Layers Panel, but it doesn't open the group and it doesn't go any further until I open the group manually choose a random item within the group and then click again on the image. So my experience is that to get to an item in say a Level 4 group takes a minimum of 16 clicks, normally more like 20-25. Now I'm sure I'm missing something, but I can't find anything that addresses this issue anywhere. Find in Layers Panel <Ctrl K> is no different. Solutions, good ideas would be much appreciated. I had about 20 items to select and adjust this morning. It should have taken me much less than a minute, not the 15 minutes it actually took me. Platform is Windows 10. I have also tried in Designer - it is no different. I have used Affinity since it first came out, so I am not a novice, but this one has me beat. Martin
  2. Would be nice if you cloud add this command to Publisher as well.
  3. I have a label of text, graphics and a photo composed in Publisher. I can group them all and I want to proportionally reduce the dimensions of the group to fit a smaller container. When I reduce the dimensions by moving the corner marker, the graphics and the photo get smaller, but the text does not. Any suggestions? TIA.
  4. When user assigns the color to group layer, the group layer icon could be better if the color also was added to the "folder" icon as well. This could help user works faster.
  5. How can I place an black/white image as a mask onto a group. Masking is some confusing compared to what I'm used to doing in Photoshop. In this case i drug the black and white pixel layer ontop of the group thumbnail and it appears to apply it as a mask but doesn't do anything? The workflow appears very unpredictable at times like this where I spend 30 minutes trying to figure out something so trivial. I'm going to guess the solution is not as straight forward as this.... In this sample I should be seeing a red background however I'm still seeing the black background that's part of the original image which should be masked out. Any help please?
  6. When a group/layer with children is used as a mask, it doesn't have a button to expand/collapse, so I have to right click on it, scroll, and press "Expand Selection" Bug.afdesign
  7. When opening Adobe Illustrator files that contain grouped objects, those object are not grouped when opening in AD as they are in Illustrator. There are groups, but they seem to be random. Is this normal behavior of AD? If so, will there be a fix in the future?
  8. Sometimes it's useful to be able to apply a certain change to or involving a number of layers that for visual layering reasons one doesn't want to put in the same group (to tie this in with an earlier suggestion of mine, this can be important for snapping); symbols could theoretically do a lot of this, but they're kind of messy and inelegant to work with, especially for certain applications. What I am suggesting is to add another tab similar to the one used for layers, symbols, etc., this one being a list of special "groups" that unlike normal groups do not act as a layer (/influence the layering order) or appear as such in the layers menu. When one clicks on such a grouping's symbol in the tab, it is selected and the tab shows options for "add layer to group from layers menu" and "remove layer from group" (instead of its default option to create a new example of whatever these non-standard groups would be called, or the option when layers have been selected otherwise to create a group from said layers), and while this grouping is selected in this way, while one cannot reorganize any of the shapes involved layer-wise, it limits the context for most operations to just the layers grouped in this way, allowing for easier synchronization of certain effects.
  9. Quando agrupo o desenho com bitmap em mas erro ao agrupar.mp4 cara, o desenho vai para o lado, segue o vídeo.
  10. I’ve encountered this multiple times when trying to group objects inside an art board. The only way I’ve been able to solve this is by moving them outside the art board before grouping. What’s going on?? iPad Pro 3rd gen 11in FullSizeRender.mov
  11. Is there a way to access/open a group without ungrouping it and selecting ONLY inside that group? In other words, I want to be able to drag-select items inside a group without selecting any elements outside of the group.
  12. I'm facing this problem in several files, since I upgraded to version 1.9, it's making my work impossible to be done, due to the group identifier tag, which is permanently active. I can't identify the lines, the works are difficult to define the details, but even when I open new or old files, the problem keeps repeating itself. Even in old files when this doesn't happen passing the mouse over the problem is repeated. Text by google translator.
  13. I'm fairly new to the forums here, and I wasn't sure how to move a post to the bug topics. But this was discussed. I was wondering if there was a way to disable having a layer be brought to the top of the layer stack after using the tool add, subtract, intersect and xor in affinity designer? For more specifics, if its not in a Art-board, and in it's own group. It works fine when it's on an art-board But when it's off to the side in it's own group, it leaves and goes out of the group when using the tools. Thomaso " if all items of the group get merged, the resulting layer is moved upwards on top, while an empty "(Group)" layer remains at their initial position." Are you using the latest release version? Yes Can you reproduce it? Yes Does it happen for a new document? If not do you have a document you can share that shows the problem? Yes If you cannot provide a sample document then please give an accurate description of the problem for example it should include most of the following: What is your operating system and version (Windows 10, OSX Mojave, iOS 12 etc)? macOS Big Sur v11.3 What happened for you (and what you expected to happen) For the merged layer not to go to the top. And for the empty group layer to be automatically removed. Provide a recipe for creating the problem (step-by-step what you did) New File, Expanded Art-board using tools, made 3 circles on the artboard, copied the 3 circles and made 6 circles outside of artboard, brought layers below the artboard group, grouped 3 circles, ADD tool the 3 grouped circles and layers were brought to the top leaving an empty group folder. ADD tool the 3 circles not in group and it was also brought to the top. Screenshots (very handy) or a screen capture/video. Video provided Any unusual hardware (like tablets or external monitors or drives that may affect things) or relevant other applications like font managers or display managers. XP-PEN Artist 22 monitor tablet Did this same thing used to work and if so have you changed anything recently? (software or hardware) I probably didn't noticed until it started becoming tedious Screen Recording 2021-06-17 at 2.51.11 PM.mov DisableLayerStack.afdesign
  14. Hey guys, I was recently designing a brochure in Publisher and I was simply trying to scale a group but for whatever reason it was not working how I thought it should work. Example - I had 2 placed images, a vector curve and some copy and headline text in a group. I wanted to scale the group proportionally and make it bigger, but when I did so the images and the vector curve scaled correctly and the headline text and copy pretty much stayed the same size. No matter which way I tried to do this it didn't work...I just ended up doing this manually (scaling the text manually and separately even though the headline and text was in a group) not sure what I'm doing wrong but I hope it's a simple fix..... This seems like a basic thing to be able to do (works in Indesign haha) Thanks in advance.

  16. Hey there! So as far as I can tell this still isn't possible in Affinity Photo. I want to be able to clip a layer to a group. See attached image. Has this been added and I just missed it? Basically every psd I've made uses this feature, so as well as not being able to import my psds because of this, I can't really use affinity photo since this technique is a huge part of my workflow. Any word on the possibility of adding this? Would love to make the switch from photoshop! Thanks for listening! - Neil

  19. I have a weird bug in the latest version of Designer. In the attached file, when I group the two objects (circle and text box), the text scales up a little bit. 247 365.afdesign
  20. I have experienced in both Designer and Publisher 1.9 that grouping objects sometimes changes the font size of the text. It does seem It does not seem to connected to the font, but maybe rather to some changes I have done to the font (scaling, size, color etc). I do not remember all the changes but here is a look at what happens. The left is ungrouped objects. The right is objects grouped - that is the only difference between the two sides.
  21. Grouping items where a contour has been applied breaks when dragging the group....... Create artistic text. Duplicate. Contour top item to be smaller. Add stroke to top item Group. If one then selects the two items within the group and drags, they move correctly [lower part of image]. If one selects the group as a whole, [upper part of image] and drags, the drawing parts move differently, as if the scaling of the contour is affecting the movement?

  22. When I export PSD and open it, group layer's blending mode become Normal even though it was set to Pass Through.
  23. I need to do this so I can make a pixel layer to add some texture without the various shapes showing lines/edges. I';ve succewssfully done this with the rest of the image as you can see in the attached photo. But those were all single shapes. I made this alien's body in 4 different shapes but I want them completely merged. I thought I could group them and add new pixel layer... but no matter where I place the pixel layer... it's just not right. How do I merge these 4 shapes into 1 shape? Not just group them. I feel like it's an obvious answer....
  24. Summary: This feature would allow you to use a group to clip a layer, so the resulting transparency of a group of layers would affect the transparency of the layer being clipped. Usage: First off, I have hundreds of psd files from photoshop that use this feature, so I can't use any of these paintings inside Affinity because that feature is not supported (This feature is kind of a show stopper for me, since I can't port all of my older files over to Affinity) And second, it's so useful for a non destructive workflow, many times you want to say paint a bunch of different characters on separate layers, and then apply a soft layer of fog to all the characters. So you group all of your character layers, create a new layer that has your fog color set to a low opacity, and then clip this fog layer to your group. In the current affinity workflow, you'd have to flatten all of those characters to a single layer, which means making edits to your characters later on become a lot harder. Thanks! - Neil
  25. Hiya, I'm having some difficulty with groups and adjustment layers and their masks. I have a base image, and then a group layer with a masked image and adjustment layer with a mask inside that group layer. Only the masked image is showing up. I set this up easily in Serif Photo plus, but when I try to do the same in Affinity Photo, it doesn't show the adjustment layer. Is this a bug or how is it supposed to work? As you can see, if I drag the adjustment layer outside the group, the adjustment layer works, but inside the group, it doesn't. Does anyone know what's going on? Thanks, Mike
