  1. Is there a way to offset the path of an object (to create a new path / object that isn't just a scale of the first object)? Please see attached: Thanks!
  2. I am trying to print various images / photo's from Affinity Photo using a Canon Pro 1000 printer and for some strange reason all attempts have resulted in the image displaced e.g. not centred. The margins are all set up & look good & even in soft proofing but the A2 printed image is offset to one side (rt.) approx. 2→5mm in both portrait & landscape. When editing / printing using the Canon software then the photos don't have this issue. I've noticed other posts on here that have similar issues but I've not discovered a solution. If anyone is able to advise me as to what is amiss that would be great as not being able to produce a correctly positioned photo kind of defeats the whole purpose of my purchase.
  3. The stroke on text with particular font will be shifted when printing. I can send the font(it's a paid font so I can not upload here directly) as sample.
  4. Please, add an option to offset inner and outer glow in Layer FX, similar to the offset in inner and outer shadow effects.
  5. I am new to Affinity Photo and like it a lot. I have been looking for a function I cannot find. Does Affinity Photo have a function similar to Photoshop's Offset? I am working with 360 by 180 degree equirectangular images, and I would like to move them right or left to put put a particular feature in the center. The offset function moves the image to the right, for example, and wraps it to the left side. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Ron
  6. I would love to see a contour / offset option. On some shapes you can make a smaller version of the same (see rectangle) for an offset outline, but for the letter R, and other shapes, making a scaled down version would not work. (let me know if I am missing this option)
  7. Will Affinity Designer desktop ever have bitmap trace and offset functionality?
  8. I have a very very big and annoying issue with Affinity Designer when im using appearence (Expand Stroke) feature !!! Its keep completely freezing up and pop out Affinity Designer stop responding on my macbook everytime im trying to make a offset "ouline" or multiple its freeze up and pop put non responding etc... Does any of you experiment this issue ?
  9. Hi, I want to make a repeating pattern and saw a Photoshop tutorial ( https://binged.it/2tZ6SDb ) where they used an offset function to do this. I've tried searching for something similar in Affinity Designer but cannot seem to find an equivalent? Is there something I've missed? istring
  10. In both photo and designer my brush tool is offset to the right. In other words, I will draw at x, y, and the line shows up at x+z, y. iPad Pro, 12 in. It happens with all brushes. It only happens in landscape, not in portrait. Doesn’t happen in procreate or notes. What can be done to fix this?
  11. Is the expand stroke supposed to be used to get an offset, or contour? Maybe I am doing something wrong....
  12. I use Designer 1.6.1 (on Mac OS X Yosemite), italian language. Offset/Inset feature would be very nice. A feature allowing to see the name of the brush applied, when i select an object, would be very nice. THX
  13. Until just last night, I knew nothing about Affinity Designer. But because I was forced to find a substantially cheaper alternative for Illustrator for the time being, I'm glad to have found this app. Even though I can see right off the bat how many features aren't included that I'm used to in Illustrator, I see how the workflow is way more intuitive, and just consolidated in how you perform operations (Layer masks just like Photoshop. But like...with Vectors. WOW. Whoda thunk? Adjustments to the stroke thick/thin with that beautiful pressure tool. SAY WHAT? Where've you been all my life?) However, here are the three things I need to know how to do straight in Affinity. I realize I may need to jump back and forth in my clunk older copy of Illustrator to do a few things. But hopefully I'm just over looking things. How do you do offset a path? I know there's a stroke feature. Which is and isn't quite the same, but I can achieve similar things for the basic outside offset. However, I need to know how to do inner path offsets (you know, when you set the offset to a negative number, and it shrinks). I'm assuming it's called something else if you have this feature. I keep reading conflicting stuff online (that seems a little out of date as well) Is there a way to do the Envelope warp with objects in Affinity? Basically, I just want to know if I can arch my text like in Illustrator. I don't need the wacky bulges and crap like that. I just need to do arches and flag raises. Is there a shape blend tool or a process to create shape blends? A bonus one would be if I can create pattern brushes like in Illustrator, but that's a "meh" The fact that you can draw like a real art program means I wouldn't need pattern brushes as much. Anyway, I'm still using the trial. Is the paid version different?
  14. I've just been trying too get an offset of a path (dieline off a shape that's a few mm larger than the shape) and using the stroke-> expand stroke work around isn't great as extra nodes get added over the top of nodes creating issues with strange bumps and lumps and gets worse when trying to remove the extra nodes which then throws out the whole path shape. Can we or is there coming an "offset path" option coming such as there is in Illustrator? and a corresponding tidying of the nodes? And while I am here, will it be possible to reflect a shape around a moveable point as one can do with rotate? Using symbols to reflect about a particular origin seems to be an un-necessary amount of work to achieve something that should take a few seconds? Are either of those features set in the pipeline? Cheers
  15. Hi Affinity team, Im really liking the customisability of the grid systems. The only thing that I feel is missing is the ability to offset the grid, hopefully I just havent found the feature yet. Sometimes its important that the grid aligns with the middle of the document instead of the top left. :D Hopefully you understand what I mean, if not, i'll try upload an image. Cheers,
  16. This would be quite useful, especially for tiling textures for example.
  17. Hope someone can help me. Attached is the outline drawing of the side of a bar-top arcade game cabinet I'm making. I used this to cut the sides. I want to get some artwork printed on self-adhesive vinyl and need to make a version of this object that is 5mm bigger all round than this to allow for the bleed. Is there a simple way to create this in Designer? I understand there's no offset tool like in Illustrator (or Sketch Up). Any pointers gratefully received. I'm using 1.5.2 on a Mac, if that's any help. Thanx.Side Art v1.0.afdesign
  18. What exactly is Offsetting? How do I offset a text character using Affinity Designer?
  19. We achieved accurate colors in offset (Ryobi 522) with ISO Coated v2 (ECI) color profile. How I can use it in Affinity?
  20. Hi, first of all thank you for this great software, recently I stated using it to draw websites mockups and I love it. The biggest problem in designing websites I perceived is the lack of an appropriate gird system: now i'm using guides, but I have to place all my artboards one below the other due to the artboard context guides bug (If i duplicate the artboard and move it to the right, the guides stand still and go off canvas, not be rebased on the new context). The integrated grid system would be great and really suitable for webdesign needs (thanks to his gutter feature), but the problem is that it always starts from (0,0), but often a website needs the grid in the centered wrapper. It could be possible to implement the feature to offsetting the starting point of the grid? With this feature, for exemple for an artboard of 1366px and a centered wrapper of 960px, i could simply calculate the width of every column and gutter and then set the starting point at (1366px - 960px) / 2 = 203px. In the case you can't or won't implement this solution, there could be another solutions to simplify webdesigners life and make Affinity Designer a perfect tool for drawing websites: - Implement the "Convert Object to Guide" feature, like inkscape - Implement a "guide presets" feature, so everyone could create his presets and apply them any time thay need Thank you very much for your attention :)
  21. Offsetting paths. Currently I've resorted to expanding the stroke, but the trouble of having to manually having to delete the inner nodes (especially on more complex shapes) can take up a lot of time.
  22. Hey guys, check out this nice interface for the Offset Path command in Autodesk's Fusion 360. I think something like this might be great for AD's command as well, similar to the current implementation of the Corner Tool UI
  23. I am working on pattern design and want to know if there is an offset filter in Affinity Designer. I know you can offset in Photo but I need to be working with vector images, not raster images. If theres no offset filter, is there another way to offset images? If not, is this something that could possibly be in a future update for Designer? The program is great and would love for it to replace Illustrator!
  24. I'm still using the trial version of Designer and it's going OK. For me one purpose for Designer is to create patterns for use in woodworking. In some cases the pattern needs to be smaller or larger than the final product by a set amount; I call this the offset. (This situation occurs when using a router with a bushing guide.) if I make pattern of a flower, for example there could be several petals around a circle. The edge is the final set shape. I'd like to be able to make patterns with different offsets from that final size, e.g. less by 5 mm. I need a unit like mm or inches. I could not find anything like an offset path tool. Some forum topics suggest using a stroke. I'm not sure how to make an inside stroke by a certain amount of millimeters. I'm also having some problems with printing large patterns across multiple pages; there are gaps even when using borderless settings for page size. Any thoughts on how to do this or just knowing that it can't really be done would be welcome. Thanks
  25. I would love if it was possible to offset the start point of the grid. In both directions, either negative or positive (top or down).
