Affinity community, I need your help! I'm fairly new to Affinity Designer and I'd like to use some brushes which are available throughout the web. While I have no problems importing afbrushes, it seems to be impossible to do the same with ai and eps. I could not find any working solution both in the Affinity help and the forum. Let me illustrate the problem with an example. I got a pack of brushes at this website and unzipped it on my MacBook. In AD, I tried to import the brushes, like always, by navigating to the brushes panel and clicking import brushes. If I click the button, I can move to the unzipped folder where I eventually see ai as well as eps brushes. But as you can see in the screenshot, the respective brushes are greyed out—no matter if in draw or pixel persona. On this page, Affinity says that one would be able to import both brushes. And if I open an eps brush by right clicking open with, AD opens them as you can see in the second screenshot. But then, I don't no what to do to use them as brushes. So I would be very happy, if you could help me to solve my problem/confusion. Besides the aforementioned problem: AD rocks! Cheers, Ali
Hi, New to Affinity. Have tons of .abr brushes I've been hoping to import. First try worked, but the brush - a fairy wing - comes in as one large swath - when I put it to max size, I see 3 wings versus the 100 all squished together that it comes in as. But when I used the brush in gimp it was just a simple single wing. I thought maybe these were older PS brushes, so I converted to a .png and loaded that as the brush. It did the same thing. Any ideas what I've done wrong? I cannot for the life of me find a setting that lets me see/use the brush as a single wing rather than this row of several repeated - but I have about 200 brushes to import, so I want to figure out how to do it right first. :- ) I've combed the forum but seems like I'm the only one doing something wrong like this, lol! I'm loving AFFINITY, but clearly missed something here.Screenshots below if they help. Thanks, if anyone can help.
