  1. Hello, this is my first message here Like a lot of people around here, I've been using Illustrator for years and got used to its mental model and tools. Recently i started sketching simple cartoons using a tablet and unfortunately I can't yet achieve the same line quality in AD as I get in AI I suspect this is more due to the way AD translates my gestures into vector lines. Apparently it follows them "too closely" and any jitter on my part will become very apparent. In Illustrator, i'd handle this by messing with the Paintbrush tool options>fidelity/accuracy setting i've attached an example in AD, I haven't found a similiar option. Am I missing something or this level of control is not implemented yet? Thank you so much! I'm making a conscious effort to switch to AD and this is my biggest gripe so far (I can't organize/distribute artboards either, but i'll leave that for some other day)
  2. Selecting the option "Tampa de topo" (Portuguese for "top end" I guess) make the path transparent. When the other 2 end types are selected (rounded or square), path reverts to normal. Opacity was set to 100% in all cases (didn't change this adjustment). I'm attaching detail screenshots.
  3. I miss the function 0.001 mm or 0.003 pt line setting for laser and mill-chut/mill. In Affinity Designer 1.4.1. is just a line with 0,1 pt possible. It would be great to have this function to use in svg and eps... We have a huge community of creative crafters, who loves pinterest and using laser and milling. Lovely greetings from Germany – Berlin.
  4. Hi, everyone! As I haven't found any topic on this, so the decision was made to post a new one. I have one elliptical shape, which I want to be distributed along any free line at certain density. Something like the image below, only at much higher density, but just so you can understand my needs. Maybe just a simple vector brush would do? But I haven't figured out how to make one. — the shape actually mustn't rotate; needs to stay in its default orientaiton — I would prefer the shape to have an exact dimensions (set in milimeters) — variable density would be useful, but not necessary Is there a way to do this in Affinity Designer? I need this for typeface design :) Thank you.
  5. Not sure if I missed this one. But converting lines in to fills is a must for me.
  6. I'm having trouble scaling lines within groups, for example I have an object within a group with a line width of 4pt when scaling down a larger artwork this element/line retains its line width. I have isolated objects and checked scale with artwork options and even tried selecting all from the wire frame view, but still have random lines that don't want to scale, leaving me to edit lines individually each time? When starting new work I know to click the individual scale options on lines, however when working on a detailed piece of artwork I don't always think to click this and cant find a way of applying this option to every line quickly. (Example uploaded see pocket)
  7. A small drawing i made day ago for fun.
  8. Would be great when using guide lines that I can right-mouse click a guide line on the canvas, to then select "Edit guide line position" from context menu for a modal input to set a specific guide line x/y position (option to change axis of guide line could be nice too). Additional feature: hold down option key when clicking point on ruler axis to show "Edit guide line position" modal, to then create a guide line. Additional feature: hold down shift key when dragging guide line to have position snap to 10px increments (or Npx defined in snapping tool) Additional feature (maybe not needed?): hold down option key when dragging guide line to have axis change Cheers!
  9. Hi! I couldn't find any thread related to this issue, so I assumed the bug is not reported yet. While preparing the file, I noticed more odd behavior, so I'm reporting 1 potential + 1 bug in this thread. Still, I would have sworn that my eye caught some mention of some issue pertaining to lines and boolean operations, but couldn't find it anyplace... Sorry for the duplicate if there is one indeed. The test setup: I wanted to fill a small area with black ink, so I drew dense jittery brush curves with my stylus. The stroke width parameter was rather thick. Then I made a copy of these curves, and made a compound object out of them. The compound object came out strange-looking. 1st (potential) bug Description: In Affinity Designer, when creating a compound object of a few brush curves that have a stroke width >0, the result of the operation is not as expected For me the expected was the unaltered appearance. Or in other words the appearance of the compound object if I had expanded the strokes first. (see 1st line in the image) 2nd bug Description: If I scale down the non-destructive compound objects by dragging the circular handles, the screen doesn't refresh until you release dragging. Scaling down a (destructive) compound object, works properly hope this helps! -Fotis 2 .afdesign files attached: compound_strokes_issue_fileB.afdesign is the one described above compound_strokes_issue02.afdesign is another example I made compound_strokes_issue02.afdesign compound_strokes_issue_fileB.afdesign
  10. Hi. I hope you dont mind me asking this question but I have got Photo not Designer and before this I was using PS to create line art from my drawings so I could digitally colour create them. I tried to use the process that I used before in Photo but I could not recreate some of the steps. I realise that things work differently but hoping that there is still a better way to do it then I ended up making. The process I used to use is below. The problem I have is that I cannot find a way to do the steps that I have marked in red. I ended up using the magic tool to select the white areas but it kept missing bits and was not a good solution for me and took very long and my selection was quite shabby and pixelated once I had finished. Can you advise what sort of process (if any) i can use in Photo to recreate this please. I dont want to have to buy Designer yet while I am still a beginner and learning the ropes in Photo. Creating Line art from Scans * Open scanned image in Photoshop * Make a copy of original layer and rename for easier finding * Adjustment layer – Black & White * Option box - check all options are in the middle default position of scale. If any altered bring back to middle. * Adjustment layer – Levels * Adjust as required to create more contrast and get rid of any unused white areas * Adjustment layer – Curves * Create S shape to enhance image * Go back to Copy layer and zoom into 100% and then go to Unsharp Mask * Big radius – 120 – 150% * Amount – 60 -90% * Threshold – low – 12 - 14% Touching up image to remove blemishes * Go to Brush and choose a standard brush using the black and white colours to remove any blemishes on image so image is clean * Then delete original layer Define line art * Select – Colour Range – options box – Select sampled colours/selection Preview-Grayscale/Invert/Image * Then use colour picker and click on white area within image – OK * This then creates marching ants around the line art with only the black lines selected * Select/Modify/Smooth – 2 pixels * Optional: Select/Modify/Contract – 1 pixel * Then fill the selection with black. Make sure foreground colour is black and then ALT+backspace to fill with black. * Invert selection again so white selected * Then hit Delete and white background removed so line art is now on transparent background. * Deselect with Control + D * Save this as a PS layer file for future use
  11. Hello, I´m new here and I would like to know if there is a possibility to merge a path (line)? And if on the other hand it is possible to divide a path (line) into 2 or more pathes? I think in Illustrator there is a scissors, but I can´t find anything similar in Affinity desgn. It would be really great if somenone can help me...! Thanks in advance und my best regards, sandfraeulein
  12. It would be very useful to be able to adjust the length of a line while maintaining that line's arbitrary angle. Ideally I'd be able to view and/or define the length of the entire segment numerically so that I could tell that a given line was N Units long no matter its current angle. Right now I'm able to work around this limitation thanks to Affinity Designer's robust snapping abilities but it would be great to have this as a full feature. If anyone knows a better trick to do this, please let me know. Right now the way I'm achieving this is by making a line along the angle that I want. I then duplicate that line and snap the end of the duplicate to the end of the original to ensure it goes along the same angle. Then I edit one of the two points on one of those duplicate line segments and move that point to snap to one of the further lines along that same angle. After that I delete all the line segments that I used temporarily to maintain that angle at length. It's hard to explain so I'm attaching an animated GIF of the process. In the GIF, assume that the original pedal shape defines the angle that I want my lines to stick to but I want the line to extend beyond the pedal shape. If you can follow that description and/or GIF, you'll see what I'm talking about. Now you can imagine how much more complicated it can get if I want to actually know precisely the length of that resulting line. It's possible...but it gets really hairy.
  13. Hello. I want to change the colours of this drawing and more specifically I want to make the lifework white and the background blue, light blue, red etc from top to bottom. Which app should I use? Affinity designer or Photo? What would be the optimal procedure? Antikythera mechanism final.pdf
  14. Hi, in Designer I created a line with the pen tool. At the beginning an the end of the line there goes a "magic" dotted line away from start- and end-point. (attached an example for the start-point). This dotted line also appears in export and so on. You also can see it on http://www.wuwei-qigong.de How can I "delete" this dotted line? Best, Tom
  15. Hi, I'm doing sketches on garments and trying to sort out how to easily select and copy a part of a outline. Let's say I want to copy the neckline shape on the garment in the picture below, to add a top stitch around the neck hole but I don't want to re-draw it, I just want a copy of the neckline shape to make a dashed line to illustrate a stitching. ( I have no problem with dash lines, only copying). In illustrator I could easily select single lines on a object and drag a copy of selected lines, but on Affinity I don't know how to do this and it slows down the work a lot.
  16. Even in the new Beta, I cannot get rid of the thin lines like this: The objects fit perfectly. Think it is the antialias algorithm. Is it a bug or a ghost? ;)
  17. The closest I can find in the Help guide is the Pen Tool in either "Pen" Mode or "Smart" Mode, but I'm not very skilled (if anti-skilled were a thing, I'd use that) at using the Pen Tool. Is there a "pre-fabricated" tool like what Illustrator or iDraw has for those of us falling into the "Artistically Deficient" category? ;)
  18. Hi, Can someone explain to me why the lines are so jagged (see screenshot), should be smooth. I'm sure it was OK before upgrading Cheers! Marcin
  19. I coloured a line (one straight segment drawn with the pen, 1 point wide) with a gradient. On reflection, this was unwise but AD let me do it and correctly reflected it on screen. When I printed the document, my line came out solid black :( . Saving to PDF gives the same result (unsurprising as printing uses PDF and, yes, I remembered later that Postscript doesn't support gradients on a line). I'm happy (very happy) that AD allows gradients on lines but I think it should warn about the loss of features when printing (so, by extension, in PDF exports). I didn't get an error message and don't see it as a warning in the Assistant. The consequences when printing could be significant. A simple example is attached.

  20. Hi I have an question is it possible to write text on an line or objekt ? I used this future in Illustrator is this in Affinity possible ?
  21. Please add the ability to draw straight lines with the brush tool. It would be a handy feature to have. Maybe you could just add a button on the brush properties bar that runs along the top, one that toggles straight line on or off.
  22. Is there a way to convert outlines to filled shapes? The reason behind it is that I'm creating icon glyphs and would like to use the compound shape to "disconnect" a few lines – whereas I can't do that with just an outline and probably would need to convert the line into a stroke.
  23. Please let me easily transform any vector object. With a transform tool I could set the perspective right, and distort groups and other objects. For instance: I have a group of rectangles, and I want to transform and distort this group as if it was a line. I have a rectangle and I want to put it in perspective, or make a 3D effect. It would be great either have a transform tool similar to photoshop and the ability to select for instance the outer corners of a rectangle and option drag them towards the middle in the same amount. I definitely need a line tool. I want to edit every single bit of a line. I the ability to make a dashed or a dotted line. Of course I could use cmd-j, but I want it as a line so I can distort it. Also I want dashed lines for rectangles, etc. It would be great to turn a group of objects into a line, like when you have a couple of objects and you want to put them on a path and behave like they were a line.
  24. Hello, I purchased my copy of Affinity Designer this morning and I'm having fun using it. Whilst I was experimenting with the software I was struggling to change the outline of a vector shape. I wanted it to have a textured outline. For example I drew an oval, switched to Pixel Persona, clicked Line, Texture Line Style then Properties but all of the options are greyed out (General, Dynamics, Texture) I've attached a few pictures for you to look at. Am I doing something wrong? Keep up the great work Cheers
