  1. Hi guys. I was recently working for one of my clients and we accidentally found out that power duplicate, or simply when I try to rotate objects or some curve around the circle, than the duplicated/rotated objects always miss the attachment points on the circle. I documented it in the screen recording down below. I am putting it in this Bug report thread because I couldn't find any solution for this. I even tried 360/X rotation instead of exact numbers, but it didn't help. Is there something I am missing here? I will be very glad for any help. Thanks. power duplicate.mov
  2. Can someone help me out here? I create a circle (10px by 10px) with a thickness of 2, CTRL+J to copy, go into the Transform box and type +8 in the W: and H: section. So I now have my duplicate circle (increased 8 pixels both in the width and height). OK, so all I want to do now is to power duplicate and keep pressing CTRL+J however many times I want to make these circles, each one 8 pixels larger than the previous. Isn't the expression of +8 in both the W and H correct? I'm not getting each circle +8 pixels larger than the last.
  3. Windows 10 Home 1909, Designer 1.8.3.641. Watch the video to see what’s happening. I duplicate the original Rectangle layer, then rotate and resize the duplicate, then use power duplicate a few times. At the end I have a sheared object. Is this what I should be expecting? It doesn’t happen every time so I’m wondering what I’m doing wrong when it happens. 2020-05-21 12-55-40.mp4
  4. I've created a quick video showing how to create a basic Long Shadow Effect using the Power Duplicate feature in Affinity Photo. If you have a better way of creating a Long Shadow Effect, feel free to add your tips and tricks here :) Affinity Photo - Long Shadow Effect
  5. Duplicate or Copy change the empty space distance btw. the lines - WHY ? PLEASE HELP No matter how I copy the group or duplicate multiple circles - the distance between the lines changes in proportion ? Why ? I want to keep the distances, how to do that please ? My steps is : 1. Drawing 10 Circles w. distance (step) of 0,5 mm (r-10mm, r-9,5mm, r-9mm ......) :blink: GREEN COLOR 2. Group this all 3. Copy and Paste OR Duplicate this Group ! 4. go to Trasfomation and change Group2 to 5mm X 5mm RED COLOR 5. FxCK look at this ... ......the Distance between the Circles is NOT 0,5mm Step. IT IS SMALLER ! :angry: 6.
  6. Dear Affinity Community, i am a novice regarding Affinity Design and in General Vector Design. However as a Scientific Worker I have to draw really nice figures. Currently I am struggling to make vector objects (these red/blue Ribbons) to follow a given path ( I want to make circles) I have read that a few options exist: 1. To "Power Duplicate" 2. Design an own Brush I am really struggling with both options.. Please find attached the Ribbons I made and my attempts to design a brush. As you can see I do not understand why the brush hast no color and also shows a contour in red or black ! Also the ribbons itself are not in red/blue colored.. Thank you in advance desperate Alex
  7. I'm new to AD and have only limited experience with vector graphics programs in general, so please bear with me. I'm trying to use AD to create a watch face. I have done this using GIMP in the past with few problems, but am hitting some frustrating issues with AD. I want to have the following markers displayed along the outer edge of the watch face: sub-minute markers 5 per minute. Rotation = 1.2 degrees. Minute markers = 6 degrees Hour markers = 30 degrees I create my 1st marker as a vertical line at the 12 o'clock position, then cmd-J to duplicate, move the rotation center to guides at the vertical and horizontal center of the face, rotate it (painfully) by zooming in and dragging to the desired 1.2 degree rotation, then use cmd-J to make duplicates. I've been able to use Power Duplicate to create small numbers of duplicates, but find it "drifts" when trying to do larger numbers. I have tried clicking the outside center, inside center and center buttons in the transform box with little success. I have tried entering 1.200000 as the R value in the Transform box. By the time I generate enough sub-minute markers to get to the 90 degree position (75 duplications), I see 2 common problems: The rotation value has drifted by +.3 degrees. At 90 degrees, the final marker is at 90.3 or worse. The rotation center drifts, resulting in a spiral effect. This "drift" is so bad that my hour and minute markers don't even align properly. This is all compounded by having to rotate using the mouse, as entering values directly into the Transform R box changes the rotation center. The only workaround I've found is carefully creating a small number of markers, duplicating these as a group and rotating those. I'm finding this much slower than I expected. In GIMP, I'd create the 1st marker, duplicate and rotate 5 markers, merge those layers, duplicate and rotate 6 degrees for the next minute and successively merge, duplicate and rotate until I could produce a dial in a few minutes. I have also purchased Affinity Photo, but don't see a better solution there, and I'd prefer to stick to vectors. I don't think there's anything much simpler than a watch face, yet I'm finding this very difficult to achieve. Am I missing a fundamental trick?
  8. Forgive me if I am missing something obvious, please, but may I ask if there is a way to perform a power duplicate behind a selection? In the attached file, on layer 4 with the triangles at the bottom for instance, on the right, even though I pressed alt, then dragged the copy and placed it behind the original triangle by pressing "Back One", when I pressed ctrl-J the next copies always appear in front, even as they disappear off into the distance. I am just playing about with it ( I quite like the shell effect on layer 2 with a star ) to see what it can do. Hope you don't mind me asking. Thanks! powerduptest.afdesign
