  1. On my main PC, I was getting a crash to desktop (Affinity Photo would suddenly shut down, without warning), when using the pen tool. I THINK it's happening when I double click an area as I'm creating a shape, before the shape is complete. I moved over to my second PC (Same video card type) and it happened there as well. The similarities between the PCs are the same OS and the same video card. Everything else is different. For the record, they both use Windows 10, 64 bit and have a AMD Radeon R7 370.
  2. 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. 3. Further, when I've just changed to the Pen tool, I cannot click the Brush icon. When I click the Brush icon in the Stroke Panel, nothing happens. I can only select the Brush icon after I have put down two points via the pen tool. (Yet thereafter, when I click elsewhere, the settings are again lost.) 4. Clicking "synchronize defaults from selection" on any path does not save its style as the default, whether done via the toolbar or the Defaults in the Edit menu. 5. This problem of unexpected resetting/non-syncing of defaults does not happen with the Vector Brush tool. That tool synchronizes correctly. This seems to be a Pen tool issue. 6. My problem is similar to this post. I've read and understood the expected behaviour and tried out the proposed solution here, but the problem still occurs. I note that the supposed behaviour is simple as per this video, yet my attempt to replicate it has been without success. 7. I believe the Pen tool was working properly earlier today, and am surprised that it happened suddenly. I also believe that this bug cropped up after I heavily experimented with the Vector Brush tool, but this is just my guess. I have Affinity Designer running on two separate Windows installation (two different computers). Both have the same problems with the Pen tool, so this is not a local machine issue. Please help me, as this problem is quite bugging my usual workflow. I can try to make a video if necessary.
  3. Hi, new here and just checking out the trial of Affinity Photo 1.5.2.69 (Test). On my Surface 4 Pro with Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, several key parts of the UI won't respond to touch and pen input: Selecting menu items is finicky, but works eventually most of the time Selecting variants of tools from their drop downs (left toolbar) won't work. The menu opens, but none of the displayed options can be choosen (e.g. 'Ellipse' from the 'Rectangle' tool drop down) Editing brushes via "More" is impossible. The entire dialog is unresponsive and won't even close I have not checked out the entire application yet, maybe this list in incomplete. On my Win 7 Pro 64-Bit Workstation with a Wacom CTH-661 everything runs just fine as far as I've seen. Is that a known issue or a bug specific to the trial version? Regards, Chris
  4. How would I easily clean up these highlighted little corners sticking out. These were made using the pen tool, and I tried fiddling with the nodes, and I can't get it looking good. I was going to try and use white rectangles around it to clean it up, but there has to be an easier way. Thanks!
  5. I'm using Affinity Designer on a new Surface Pro with a pen. I find if I touch the screen with my hand while I'm using the pen, I draw when I want to. This doesn't allow a proper sketching use case. On Windows, software has the ability to support "palm block", where the palm is ignored and pen input is still allowed. Does Affinity Designer support "palm block" or plan to implement it in the future? I think Affinity Designer would make an amazing sketch tool for pen artists.
  6. 1.How can I get a pen brush to be tapered on both ends. This is a pen from ArtRage. In the attached gif. 2. How can I get pen pressure to change the size of the brush? Light pressure thin line heavier pressure thicker line. Thanks.
  7. Hi, I'm new with Vector drawing and rather new to AD. What I'm trying to achieve: (https://www.vecteezy.com/vector-art/95407-white-abstract-geometric-vector) What would be the best way to draw these triangles? Steps and Problems encountered when drawing triangles with the pen tool in Polygon mode: After each closed polygon a new curve layer is created, which makes it impossible to reuse a nodes and edges as part of another triangle To use a triangle that is created through creating surrounding triangles, a polygon has to be drawn explicitely where each node is on top of others To move nodes, all layers have to be selected and before moving a node I have to select join curves. This however is forgotten as soon as I select another layer I've also tried using the triangle tool, but this doesn't make it easier, as I'll have to move more nodes around afterwards. Maybe this is the way one has to deal with it, but I was hoping, someone could recommend a better workflow. Thanks in advance.
  8. I just bought a AF Designer MS Store version for my Surface Book. I have tested the brush with pressure, it doesn't work. Do I need to configure anything or it should just work? Thank you in advance. Johnny
  9. Hello, Is possible to set a real 1px of stroke width with no antialiasing? Thank you!
  10. Hi, I used the pen tool to create a drawing with curves and lines. Once completed, I realised that it would look better if the lines were brushes. Looking more like pencil lines rather than hard edge pen tool lines. Is there any way of converting all the lines to brush style quickly? I odnt want to draw everything in brush tools. Thanks
  11. I would really like the ability to change the mode of the Pen Tool via the keyboard. I was switching between curves, lines and polygons today, and having to jump up to the toolbar every time was driving me nuts! Thanks
  12. Hello. I would like to know if there is possibility to set the pressure sensitivity of a Wacom pen. I would like also to have some pencil brushes. Do they exist in Aphinity photo? Or do I need Aphinity Designer for this? I want to do some sketching. Thank you. With Kind Regards. Jozef
  13. I usually use magic wind to select but often I want to improve selection. Ordinary tools can't make smooth and precise edit so I would like to use pen. For example to add zone to existing selection. I know that I can convert pen curve to selection but new curve removes current selection.
  14. How do I make these keystrokes on a US keyboard?
  15. I'm using Affinity Designer 1.5.5 on iMac 2017 with Radeon Pro 580 as a second user (not administrator). Only when another user is logging in, the cursor of pencil/brush tool is invisible on white workspace, visible on black area. Oppositely, even when I'm logging in, another user doesn't have any trouble with using Affinity Designer. - It occurs only with some pen tools (pen/pencil/brush), doesn't occur with the other tools(e.g. rectangle tool) - First user doesn't meet this trouble, even though my and his preferences look same. - Hardware OpenGL preference doesn't affect to this problem - It occurs with Affinity Photo' pen tools Is there any work around solution?
  16. The top most line is a pixel line I made in Photoshop. The line below it is the line I've created in AD using the Pen tool. As you can see the line is the correct width, but the stroke overhangs. I've tried playing with all the stroke positioning options and can't see a solution. Frustrating! Do I need to create a 1 pixel high box shape instead?
  17. Photoshop is able to differ between the pen and the hand - you can use your fingers to navigate and zoom and the pen for drawing. I think this would be uselful. Thank you!
  18. Sorry if this is a very stupid question. But I need to draw a single straight line. So I select the Pen Tool, hold down the Shift key to make it perfectly horizontal, draw it and it appears. Good. But then as soon as I click the Move Tool the line disappears! Why?
  19. Hello, In an effort to transition from Photoshop to Photo, I thought I'd try to at least establish a freehand sketch for a design I'm working on in Photo rather than Photoshop. I tend to use a simple hard round brush with shape dynamics enabled in PS and Jitter determined by Pen Pressure. With Photo, I've selected an equivalent brush under the Basics and set Size Jitter to Pressure under Dynamics. So far so good. The problem I'm experiencing is that when I sketch a freehand curved line in Photo, the precision isn't quite there. The curve I draw is often made up of a series of small (and sometimes not so small) straight lines rather than following the pen exactly. It's as if the software is unable to keep up with the pen and interpolates between two points along the movement of the pen. Photoshop doesn't do this. Has anyone experienced this? Is it a known issue and if so, will it be addressed? Having the line follow the pen exactly is critical Thanks, -grant
  20. Hi everyone! Perhaps it's just me, but I can't get wacom's grip pen tilt sensor to work with the brushes. I was trying with the DAUB markers (the one with the "vertical" shape). I can get pressure sensitivity, but no tilt for changing the shape rotation ... Is this possible? Thanks.
  21. I actually do hope I've missed something obvious here so that someone can quickly point me in the right direction! I keep trying to draw with the pen, and the tutorial says that holding down the ALT key will let me break my curve so I can go off on an angle, but it's not working for me. The ALT key is shared with the OPTION key on my Mac, so is there maybe a different key I should be pressing instead? It's getting really frustrating to have to shove the handle in to try to create a sharp corner on a line I'm trying to draw. Doesn't work very well, or even snap into the node, freeing it, if I bring that handle point right on top of it. Is there any other sort of key shortcut I should be using? ALT just isn't breaking the curve for me, for whatever reason. Please help!
  22. I've noticed that Affinity Designer sometimes slows down drastically when I'm using a stylus. I'm not talking about drawing in particular; interacting with the UI is even worse. Simple things like locking a layer or selecting a color sometimes take several seconds. Everything suddenly performs as expected when I use the trackpad instead.
  23. Pen latency has been on my mind since the new Surface Pro and iPad Pro were announced. I enjoy drawing in Affinity Designer with the brush tool, and I really like some of the fancier brushes, but the appearance of new lines always lags behind my drawing pretty drastically. When using elaborate brushes, would it be practical for Affinity Designer to draw a plain, unstyled line under the stylus immediately and then draw the fancy brush version over it?
  24. Hi all, I'm working in Infinity Photo iOS on my iPad Pro and need to make a selection using the Pen tool. I can't figure out how to make a sharp anchor point to join two curved paths (please see attached). Normally in Photoshop, I'd hold down the alt/option key and click on the anchor to activate the "V" corner feature so I can adjust the two tangent handles independently, but I don't have this ability on the iPad. I tried the "Sharp" and "Smooth" bottoms in the Node mode, but they just toggle between straight-lined joints and curved lives without a corner. The path handling tool doesn't seem to be too intuitive, and I need to use the Pen tool to make precise selections. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Also, is there a feature like Photoshop's "Exclude Overlapping Shapes" or "Intersect Shape Areas"? I find that when I create a smaller shape within a large shape, the large shape disappears.
  25. I would love it if you could easily toggle to the node tool while drawing with the pen tool. It would make drawing masks much quicker. Or even if you could choose one of the bezier handles with the pen and adjust it that way. Now, if I click on one of the control points with my pen it drops another point instead of letting me adjust the handle angle. On a related note, please let the node tool adjust just one side of a B├ęzier curve. I'm try to crest an accurate mask and if use the node to adjust one side the other side adjusts as well. Can't get a good mask like that. Thanks
