  1. Looking for tutorials on making half drop and half row repeat pattern tiles. I can find plenty of tutorials on making a basic square repeat, but I want to make more complex patterns using rectangles and offsets for half drop repeats and different variations of brick by row and column. Ideally, I would like to learn how to make patterns with offsets in both X and Y. Here is a test pattern using a method I know for making a half drop pattern, but I don't know how to crop a tile for this method.
  2. Hi guys, just a quick and easy way to create a waves pattern or a chevron pattern without using the pen tool.
  3. Irregularity/randomness of brush pattern seems to be fixed on the macro action. The brush pattern always comes out the same like it's copied. I think the random parameter for brush pattern shouldn't be fixed. it should be different each time.
  4. Hi all, I'm considering buying Designer but one thing that I can't find is if there is a way to fill an object using vector or patterns. I only find gradients and bitmap. I know we can duplicate an object to create hand made pattern but I can't then edit the repetitions like if is a bitmap fill. Cheers, Juan
  5. I switch from Adobe to @affinitybyserif after 11 years. I really miss: 1) serious control tool to check pdf after print, 2) equivalent ai pattern tool in designer, 3) more than 2 side by side pages in publisher. I hope you think about it, thanks a lot
  6. I searched a lot and I can't find anything about this, expect some workaround that doesn't work as expected. Is there a way to use a brush/pattern that follow a path ? It's a pretty basic feature on illustrator or photoshop. Thanks
  7. Just thought I may as well post this, as I'm finalising a t-shirt design destined for screen print. Initially I was gonna use VectorStylers new Halftone Repeater feature which is great but still in it's early stages so had a few hiccups, so in the end all design was done in Affinity Pub (studioLink) with the exception of the the distorted text which was done in VectorStyler. I came up with this halftone workaround a while ago while messing around with the early betas of pub that had the data merge layout function added, it's really easy and involves a symbol which is repeated 8x8 then placed inside a data merge layout container sized to accommodate then repeated as much as needed and pasted inside the vector containers that need the halftone, for me this works a little better (at the moment) than VS repeater method but quite similar in principle. Once in place the symbol can then be resized to simulate the density of the halftone which can easily be done with the arrow keys in the transform panel - I'm not really any good at all this tutorial stuff, but it may be able to help someone? The finished PDF/X-1a 2003 file should then be output to film with the Red 032 separation and the black separation output negative which will be the opaque white ink base which is designed to be printed on a black T-shirt This technique also works as a cheat for any kind of repeating pattern: 2143350893_ScreenGrab2022-01-20at09_47_08.mov
  8. Here's another hexagonal repeat this time done with a shot of an old olive tree: The detail is well worth zooming on.....I had not expected the complex and, for me, fascinating result. All best wishes Antony
  9. Hello everybody, How you doing? Well, I guess that Affinity Designer has the same tool to create patterns from strokes as Illustrator has. (Image attached). I'm newbie in Affinity Suite, so I dind't find anything relate to that. Somebody could help me? Thanks. Have a nice day.
  10. What am I doing wrong, to get this effect instead of a beautifull filled pattern? I made a rectangel, filled it with a style and rasterised it. Layer- new pattern layer from selection and this is what i got. I do not want the 1 or 2 pixel lines. happy greetings, Yolanda
  11. This may be already requested by somebody before. But just in case, texture & pattern overlay effect won't be imported when opening a psd.
  12. Hi there, i search for a tool / asset or so program for Affinity Designer, to make easily Mandalas and / or Patterns... It can be cost a little bit, no problem, so i search on the website "Creative Market" but i am not sure, what the best or if that is what i need. Can you recommend some tool for me? Best regards. Info: I have the Windows 10 Version (Desktop Program)
  13. is there a way to create “half drop” repeat patterns in version 1.9 or does it limit you to only single image simple even patterns? How about patterns with multiple images? Also, Can I import other elements from another file or another layer to incorporate it into the repeat pattern layer?
  14. Good day to you. Usually I use Publisher for creating "presentations" rather than prints, so before I used Keynote a lot. And there is pretty useful thing called: "Advance image fill" where I could take any image and turn it into pattern. I tried to find something similar in Publisher but failed. Any thoughts how can I replace this function?
  15. Hello! I am making a board game board using Affinity Designer, and was hoping someone out there could assist me in speeding up my process! I have done some prototype boards, and it has been a tedious process for making the track/titles that the pieces move on. It's a lot of resizing rectangles! (attached is an image of something similar to what I am trying to do) Ideally, what I would like to do be able to do is make a curved line path, and the squares magically appear roughly 1.5 inches in length. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thank you!
  16. Is there going to be a pattern feature in affinity designer soon?
  17. I was initially a bit underwhelmed with Photo betas Pattern fill tool as I prefer to use vectors for this kind of thing, but just had a thought today about using Publishers Data Merge layout tool to create vector patterns and it turns out to work really well, at least for my usage - I'm not really up to the job at making tutorials, but thought I'd make a few screen captures in order to share the technique - it really does seem powerful and doesn't seem to slow down the way the old step and repeat symbols technique does First here's an earlier post from today where I first began messing around with the technique - this covers the basics of how to set up a repeating pattern And heres the technique put into practice on one of my old cartoon illustration jobs - hope someone can make use of it Pattern_test.mov
  18. Hello, I'm trying the Publisher demo to see if it could replace some work I do in Photoshop. There's a feature I need a lot in my designs, it's the Pattern overlay. Let's say I'm picking a rectangle, I go to Layer style > Pattern overlay and pick a pattern (you can import .pat files) and then this pattern is applied repeatedly to the shape. I can play with transparency, size, etc. I haven't found anything to do the same in Affinity Publisher. The Fill tool doesn't do the same.. Any idea for me, as this is really a blocker 😞 Will this feature come? Otherwise, I love the software.. great job guys. Thanks.
  19. Hi there! I love designing with repeating patterns. Now I found a good workflow to design and apply repeating patterns in AD. I recorded a tutorial that shows you how to design them, build a style library and apply patterns. They blend nicely with color fills using blend modes. The pattern and the color fill are in one shape, so no duplicates! --> https://vimeo.com/443692483 If you prefer the short explanation: I design vector patterns in a separate document using symbols to get the tiling right, export as bitmaps, use bitmap fills to build up a Style Library and apply those in drawings on iPad and desktop.
  20. I was asked to reproduce a geometric quilt pattern in Affinity Designer by someone who wasn’t sure where to start. This tutorial is 1 hour and 20 minutes long. It says it’s longer, but that’s because I forgot to delete some clips at the end. I’ll get round to fixing that later. The pattern is made up of pentagons and pentagrams, and consequently correlates well with the golden ratio. If you are having problems with creating geometric patterns in Affinity a Designer, this tutorial explains how some of these problems come about, and how best to resolve (well - work with) them. Here is the link to the tutorial on Vimeo.
  21. Hello, As a dataviz designer I often create the base of my works with SVGs on the web, so I can program the visual elements to be based on the data, then to import them into a vector tool for other adjustments. I've noticed that Affinity Designer doesn't import any SVG linearGradient / radialGradient nor patterns, which I do often use, so for now I can't rely solely on Affinity Designer sadly enough. (I copy the SVG element from the "Elements" section from the devTools in Chrome) I've attached a document that shows the import of the link below. All the inner curves that have a gradient in the online version are invisible (have no fill) in the import: https://bl.ocks.org/nbremer/raw/4de6f0a9d9d06373fc639e32e9c346cc/ For a radial gradient, you can try this: https://bl.ocks.org/nbremer/raw/e944485869ac8fd57413a158e9d8aae0/ which results in a no-fill circle being placed in Affinity Designer For pattern examples, you can try the following links that all are imported seemingly remaining invisible: https://bl.ocks.org/veltman/raw/57fbb830ba7e62caa46a82891168bc29/ https://bl.ocks.org/1wheel/raw/a8f39c8a96b71735488bf280d34bd765/ https://bl.ocks.org/veltman/raw/50a350e86de82278ffb2df248499d3e2/ I'm using Affinity Designer 1.7.1 on macOS Thank you!

  22. Hello, Is it possible to use brush on the one selected area, but the effect to be for all the other selections, like mirroring the brush movement and effect, but inside the different selections? like on the image, this dot to appear not only for the selected area but also inside the other boxes simultaneously. I want to create irregular patterns. Is there any chance I can do something like this without using the symbols? Or Can the symbols be created after the creation of curves, like linking already existing curves and choosing one of them as the symbol? I also tried applying bitmaps to the selection but for irregular placement it's impossible. I'm quite curious what effect does "repeat" or "zero" have? Any ideas, different tools or any third-party software to reach the described results? hope my question is clear.
  23. Hello Affinity, With the help of @Old Bruce I managed to copy circles on a path, and align the circles using the text tool. It is not as user-friendly to modify the space of the circles using the characters tracking. It is like a sort of a hack way to aligning shapes to paths. I thought it would be nice to add a separate feature for aligning shapes on paths. Also add the pattern feature too, so we don't manually repeat patterns. I know I ask too much but you guys are awesome. Thank you, text-path-align.afdesign
  24. Hello World, Thank you Affinity, your product is amazing. I will be sharing this work on LinkedIn mentioning Affinity Products. You can also check it on YouTube as well. Almost forgot, you can also use the slider yourself to draw haha I am still testing it though. give it a shot https://boroji.com/test/index.html Thank you again, Keep up the good work Geometric_Pattern-Timelapse.mp4
