  1. Hi everyone! So I recently bought Affinity designer 1.9.3 program for Mac and started watching tutorials on YouTube. I saw in one video that they are using the Healing tool however, when I check my software it has none, I already checked in the customized tools and it has less tools compared to what I saw in the video. Does anyone know why Affinity software is like that or do you guys have any solutions for this?
  2. Hi, I design transit maps (either route map or track diagrams). When I place a double track and new double track panel, both doesn't match even I set it to total black in RGB pane. The "X" crossover is the correct black I wanted but the lines refused to make it blacker! I also have another track diagram, an 4 line tracks, this one REFUSES to make it black from light gray! (the black switch east of Oak Street is the correct color) What gives? Am I missing something or is it known bug(s)? Thanks!
  3. After opening Designer and using it for like 10 seconds or so, it simply closes. No error, nothing. This happens not every time but most of the time. I can't seem to find a solution or what is causing the issue. But this issue started appearing after the latest update. What would you need to investigate this issue? 87501147-3050-48c6-b07f-b9bf8746aa70.dmp
  4. The new timelapse feature is something I've been patiently waiting for, and am incredibly excited to start using with the official release of 1.9! After experimenting a bit with the beta, I've noticed some potential serious pitfalls for the way that the feature is currently intended to be implemented, and I have a few suggestions on how to improve on this. Firstly, the reasons why this feature may be limiting is as follows: You would need to make sure that you don't forget to toggle "Save History with Document" otherwise your entire process timelapse (hours worth of work) woul
  5. I've been having problems with the trackpad gestures, zoom in and out, and moving up and down, they are mixed, if I hold two fingers and move them up and down (the gesture that shuold be for scrolling up and down) it zoom in and out, and if I press with my two fingers and move them away from each other (gesture for zoom in and out) the document moves up and down. Moving sidewise is not affected. I've allready tried to fix it in the preference menu, but the only thing that kinda worked was restauring the preference setting to default, But after a few days the issue return, so I'm asking fo
  6. ***Affinity feature requests*** * Global Gradient Swatches. Are they this hard to implement in affinity software...it's been 3 years alomst and the top design app for mac still doesnt support global gradient swatches, why is that? * Dynamic Styles. Yes, a workaround for this is using a symbol but having a dynamic style instead of using a Symbol can be used in many areas, means, i can implement a dynamic style with shadows and glow to a circle, a rectangle, a polygon...while having ability to manipulate and watch effects like shadows taking change on multiple objects in real time.
  7. Hello whoever is reading this! I love Affinity, especially the non-subscriber status of the program and its multiple capabilities. However, I have run into some very annoying problems (much less than Inkscape though!) when switching from Adobe Illustrator. In my workflow, I have to use many graphs which I generate in R and then edit in something like Illustrator or, now, Affinity. This requires me to frequently make use of a text-aware tool, which used to be Illustrator. Here are problems I have run up against when using this wonderful software which I cannot for the life of me find the
  8. So I've recently encountered a problem where I'm unable to rotate brushes a full 360 degrees This is making it impossible to rotate my brushes fully around since they rotate only 180 degrees Is this a bug or am i missing something ?
  9. Dear all, New Affinity Designer user. Great software, absolutely love it. However, I've encountered an issue: the Pen tool fails to synchronize defaults from selection. I'm on Affinity Designer for Windows, v 1.62.97. My problem mirrors the problems encountered here and here. In summary: 1. The Pen tool does not save the defaults of my current selection. 2. When I change to the Pen tool, it always reverts to a setting without brushes. It only retains the last stroke and fill colours and pressure profile, but nothing else.
  10. HELLO, I'M CAM AND I'VE BEEN WORKING WITH AFFINITY PHOTO FOR A LITTLE WHILE NOW. I HAVE NOT HAD THIS ISSUE TILL RECENTLY, HONESTLY I'M NOT SURE WHY. BUT WHEN I FIRST USED THE SOFTWARE I WOULD DRAG AN IMAGE TO LAYER BEHIND THE BACKGROUND. BASICALLY REPEATING THE SAME TECHNIQUE TO GET THE BACK BACKGROUND BUT OBVIOUSLY THE APP TITLES IT AS "IMAGE" BECAUSE WE ALREADY HAVE A BACKGROUND. SIMPLE STUFF, BUT FOR SOME REASON MY IMAGE LAYER IS SHOWING THE PICTURE I HAVE DRAGGED OUT OF MY FILES IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT LAYERS AREA... YET WHEN I CLICK THE CHECK ON MY BACKGROUND TO SEE THE NEW IMAGE WITH OUT T
  11. I bought Affinity Designer from you a few months ago and ever since then it has had bugs with the colours, they always display differently than when on any other apps and screens. They appear more muted on the affinity app. What can I do to fix this? (I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software and the issue still occurs) Thanks Bo
  12. I'm having serious issues with the Boolean operations in the Designer. Here is an example of a super easy mandala made out of circles. The effect is not only lagging but most importantly super unexpected and the software starts to be unreliable. I tried with and without pixel snapping, with and without symbols, filled and not – no luck. What is more frustrating is that every time I get slightly different effect, none of which is the desired one. The Boolean operation ar absolutely necessary for me. If you're not planning to fix them in the coming days/weeks, please let me know – I ne
  13. I just downloaded the free trial version and I can not open it, i tried running as admin. and trouble shooting and nothing worked, can you please help me?
  14. Hello. I noticed this problem with Affinity Photo desktop, which means that even with a few layers on certain operations (or even just the use of the brush), CPU usage goes up a lot (up to 100%) and the software becomes very slow and crashes even sometimes. I also noticed from the management that the GPU does not seem to be used much, although it is correctly set in the settings. I have already tried to reinstall the software and also to completely format the PC. Below is a list of computer specifications: -Windows 10 -i7 6700K 4.00 GHz -16 GB DDR4 RAM -NVIDIA GTX 1060 3GB I usually work on
  15. Hello designers and support. I've noticed something wrong with embedded .afdesign documents into artboard. In design, I using placed (for example logotypes) documents and after export as JPG or PDF file, those parts are empty, before update everything was fine. I use presets created before and the layers aren't hidden in export persona. What I do wrong? Thanks in advance for any answers.
  16. Hi! Not sure why... but, when I started Designer up this morning it took for over to open the app and not that it's open it won't let me interact. Just gives me the thud sound when I click, but won't do anything. Please Help! Thank you, Bernie Problem solved...I restarted my laptop twice and it seemed to work the second time.
  17. Hi, After last update i'm facing few issues during typical retouch activities, below there is a list of problems what i have found : 1. Liquify Persona - After finishing of modifications and applying changes Affinity stops responding, the only thing I can do is saveing the project and restarting the program. 2. Layer Mask - After applying mask and invert it, color of the mask icon does not change for black and that is very confusing, specialy when I have about 20 layers and some of them has white and black masks 3. Gaussian Blur - for 7 of 10 attempts applying gaussian blur fi
  18. Impressive at first look for a first beta. I come from QuarkXPress and I find AP intuitive. • Projects – What if you have several related files (stationery, brochure, etc.) and you want to them to share resources and formatting. If you add another item to the project, such as a booklet, could you pick up the resources and formatting? • Long documents – Sections, etc. How to handle long documents. • Issues – Publications with several locations, etc. Maybe ads change from region to region. • External copy editing while layout is being worked on. Could a text editor be
  19. When I export these pen tool lines in Affinity Designer as a .svg, and a .eps and then attempt to open that file in Adobe Illustrator it automatically converts the lines into shapes and no longer lines. An I somehow exporting them incorrectly or is it not possible to export lines?
  20. Hello everyone and thank you for your answers in advance. I have a huge issue with Affinity for mac: Using a Canon 1Dx mark ii camera, i capture RAW photos for the best quality, but for some reason Affinity doesn't read the white balance correctly. I usually play with a white balance to tune a nice look when possible, but this time it was a no go, because the product i photographed looks blue instead of purple! Please see attached 3 files: The original RAW, a JPG file exported via Apple Photo app (it easily detected and exported the correct white balan
  21. I have a script with several letters that I need to combine and then stroke, I must combine them or else the stroke is overlapping other letters and does not achieve the desired effect. The problem I am having when Combining or Adding from the OPERATIONS tools the center of the Loops in the letters aren't being knocked out, except for the "o" in the word "Lord". I am stuck and I can not figure out what I am doing wrong. Please Help :-) Thank You! Please take a look at the screenshots below...
  22. I use Nikon D700 and Affinity Photo process my RAWs quite differ from Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Images are losing details and have incorrect tones and gamma. I did not find how to deal with it in Affinity. As a workaround, I can use Lightroom as RAW converter, then export to TIFF and can edit it in Affinity, which totally does not make any sense. Hope Affinity guys know this issue and working on that. See an example below. It is just opened RAW files without any additional settings implemented. You can see how much details I loose in lips and eyelashes.
  23. Please help me other problem I have a Panasonic GX80 camera. If I open it in Affinity Photo, I set the colors and set it to arm with the Unsharp Mask. Then I export the image quality will be bad. It is blurry, painted, and apparently much firmer than when I import it from Photoshop Express. What's the problem here? Because it's really a big deal. If only setting what's wrong? I tried everything. I attached an example. But it's much firmer than other pictures. I'm going to add something like that. the left hand side of Photoshop Express is perfect. On a full screen, blurred
  24. Hello, Apologies if this is already a topic but I am literally at my wit's end trying to figure out what is causing font issues in Affinity. This is my first week using the program and I have read over a dozen different sites on how to fix these issues and nothing is working! I am working with marketing materials within Affinity and noticed a message saying I was missing some fonts (attached). Naturally, I knew that missing these was causing existing text to size improperly because my Mac did not have said fonts. So I installed the needed fonts: Futura LT, Futura Std, Open Sans, Pi
  25. I'm having a problem with one of my projects kicking me out when I work on it. How do I send you a crash report and what info do you need from me in order to file one?
