  1. I am on the latest version of AD on Mac. I cannot covert any stroke to dashed/dotted style. See attachment.
  2. I am trying to simplify complex illustrations into their basic line forms...what is the best way to do that using Affinity?
  3. So far I have not found this feature in any drawing program. But I think it could be done and it would make technical drawings easier. If I want to draw the wiring of a house I have in Germany a blue and brown line for the the actual electric power and a yellow/green for safety. The catch is, that is is not possible, to draw a line where green and yellow are alternating. I have done some improvisation in CorelDraw by designing a pattern = containing of 45degree lines (kind of hatching) or of concentric circles. Yet in both cases the drawing of powerlines does no longer look „dottet“ or alternating whenever you have a bend. This can lead to the point, that the 45 degree pattern becomes parallel with the powerline drawing. And ist is not possible, to do that, where both colors are drawn parallel. The only way to do this would be to group a yellow and a green line … very cumbersome. CAD-programs for the electric field avoid the problem, by have you just draw one (symbolic) line. But in cases where you need to be more specific, it would be much clearer to have such an option The attached PDF shows part of a drawing where the electric problem was that one had to use the blue and brown line from one source and the yellow/green line from another. So my challenge for the folks of Serif: 1 Offer a feature, that allows to draw lines with alternating color 2 The pattern should stay always at a right angle relative to the direction of the line - during the initial drawing process as well as, when manipiulating the line afterwards like for example rotation or stretching. 3 A not so good fallback position would be, to have a double-line drawn where both colors appear next to each other, because it could look as if that where 2 electric lines = a yellow and a green one.
  4. Hopefully, an illustration is also worth a thousand words: For any drawing used to construct or build an actual object: furniture specs, house floor plans, fences, back splash tile design, cabinetry, etc. I've used Intaglio for years specifically because it had a line dimension feature. Thank you for Designer and Photo. Waiting impatiently for Publisher. Then I'm free of you-know-who!
  5. 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? ;)
  6. I'm usually pretty creative in finding solutions, but this one has me stumped. Anyone got any suggestions as to how to create something like the attached? So far, I've been trying by hand. But the tiny variations in pressure on the lines stands out. The line pressure tool, as we know, is fairly restrictive. I don't want to recreate the attached exactly. Just that effect, of line pressure, but arranged in a circular way, geometrically even. Any clues?
  7. It's what the title says, a dashed line will look weird when aligned to the inside/outside of an object. Looks fine when centered. Please see attached image. Thanks!
  8. Which tool would you recommend for drawing crop marks in Affinity Photo? Thank you.
  9. 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
  10. The adjusting the limits of an artistic text along a drawn line is clear in AD. Unlike Illustrator, however, there does not appear to be a way to move the entire text within these limits to the desired position along the line. Of course, I can adjust the two red limit indicators to achieve the desired effect, but this is a longer and more difficult process than simply adjusting a center indicator to move the entire text on the line (as In Illustrator). Am I missing something or is there a way to do this?
  11. Add snapping to the self line point belongs to. Imagine, the point is between 2 another point and when I moving, and line becomes straight — bang and it is snapper similar like to another geometry. And you can move ahead this straight line. And it still snapping to another geometry. So I can snap to some curve and make line straight at once, it is impossible now.
  12. How do I get rid of the line inside of my objects that separates my outline from the filled area? What am I doing wrong? Thanks for the help! MOOP.tiff
  13. Hey folks! I would like to know if there is a way to draw lines in Affinity Photo. With the Paint Brush Tool, there is a "continue last stroke" feature, but it's not really creating a line, since it paints over the last stroke when using lower opacities: Also, it's impossible to draw horizontal or vertical lines that way... Thanks in advance for your help, best regards, Rorando
  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. Hallo, again I try to get an answer to my question for a AD-problem. Two separate side-by-side objects without a free-space get a separation line. May be that I have a wrong preference but there is no free space between the two objects. I have to overlap the objects to fix this problem. Is it a bug or can I do something against this problem.
  16. Hey guys, I want to draw a double circle arrow for my origami tutorial ebook, I used ronniemcbride method to create the arrow head, then I create a circle and convert it to curve and cut it into half and duplicate it to become the double arrow circle, like below, but the arrow head is crooked, how do I make perfect double circle arrow? Left: arrowhead brush created by me Right: arrowhead brush created by ronniemcbride
  17. When I draw a line using the Pen tool I can't maintain it on the screen, because any action I have tried deletes the line. I have scoured forums and videos but apparently this is not a major problem for most. However, I have spent well over an hour just trying to solve this simple problem which should be extremely intuitive since it is the second most simple act one can perform, a point being (possibly) simpler. This is very frustrating because it is apparently TOO simple to include in any discussion or video I have yet encountered. It is astonishing to me that such a simple and basic task such as drawing a straight, horizontal line can have such a non-intuitive component as how to release it. I have used many vector drawing programs in the 37 years I have been computing and have never encountered such a frustrating process to simply draw a straight line. Can anyone please inform me of the solution to this issue? Thanks...
  18. 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)
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. Not sure if I missed this one. But converting lines in to fills is a must for me.
  23. 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)
  24. A small drawing i made day ago for fun.
  25. 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!
