  1. Hey guys!! Honestly, I love Affinity. When I find something that doesn't work as I expect it to work, I always make my mind and adapt because I want to use Affinity sooooooooo so bad. But this is breaking my brain. In AI, mirroring is something I do all the time because there's a tool for that, right? In Designer, there's no such tool, but whatever, I found a good alternative with the symbols. The problem is that, the vertices need to be really precisely at the same spot for it to work properly. That's where I realized that the precision in Designer is off. I copied 2 objects and pasted them in AI, it just confirmed the issue: one set of vertices was at 105mm and the other set at 104,986mm. It's so strange because I manually entered the value in Designer and visually, it was wrong... I understand I can snap to something slightly off when I move a vertex, but when the position is entered manually, I expect it to be 100% precise. Is there a way to tweak Designer's precision? Is there a trick I didn't see? Thank you for the help! In the meantime, I'll finish my illustration in AI 🥺 Mario
  2. Hi, i would like to ask for a more precise tool to select HSL ranges. I `m usuall finding myself recoloring a lot and the precision would safe a lot of time form masking and etc Changing the values on the wheel is very crude i think. Really hard to nail it tightly down Additionaly i hate when moving external grey circles move the internal ones ;( when i just pinpointed at least one part Maybe there is a way to do it but i cannot find nothing ;( -Piotr
  3. Hi guys, Thank you for this amazing software! I'm a new user, and I'm enjoying it a lot! I would like to ask you though to please allow fractions of percent in the Levels. Adjusting the levels in 1/100 steps is just not precise enough to make a series of images match color-wise. Today I spent the whole morning trying to make five images look consistent, nudging 1 percent back and forth in Levels, but eventually gave up and exported them with quite some difference in colors.
  4. Well I got a new idea but instead of writing Tons of lines I just decided to open a 2 questions poll to see if my idea stands. Well, can discuss about here but answering the question would talk better while the points will stand as complementary ideas. Blessings!
  5. How is it possible that if I have a 3x3 mm cell grid set it doesn't fit with a 15x3 mm rectangle? It is just an example, it happens with any other guide and object configuration. Attached screenshot so you can see what I am telling you (I have it configured in Spanish, but I think it is clearly understood) Thank you and health for all. P.S. I really like your program, but it is impossible to work correctly with this bug.
  6. Hi! I’m evaluating Affinity Designer as a replacement for Adobe Illustrator and I’m very impressed. However, my main tool would be the vector brush and I’m a bit disappointed with it. I find that Affinity’s vector brush re-interprets my strokes too much. I draw a curve and the resulting stroke gets transformed: it ends up being a bit too flat or a bit too curvy, a bit off. Is there a way to control the brush tool tolerance? In Adobe Illustrator, I can control brush fidelity and smoothness (see screenshot). I would say Affinity Designer’s tool would compare to Illustrator’s brush options set at 5 pixels / 5 %. I prefer setting it at 1 pixel / 1% for higher fidelity. Can something like this be done? (Please note that this doesn’t apply to the pixel brush (Pixel Persona), which follows my strokes precisely.)
  7. Stroke width goes by increments of 0.1 pt, which is very coarse (also degrees when rotating and shearing an object). This means I can't even go by quarters in AD because it requires 2 decimal places (if using decimals). I'd like to see this changed to maybe 5 decimal places or just using fractions (for things like exact thirds). Gradient controls only go in increments of 1%. I'd like to see this drop to maybe 0.0001% and maybe add different gradient interpolation modes (like easing, cubic, hold, 1-bit dithering, etc.) and more cool stuff. Please give us more control than what Illustrator gives!
  8. Hi, I am trying to do a power duplicate while rotating an ellipse. the amount of rotation needs to be as precise as possible. I and trying to create seven ellipses in a perfect circle. The attached file shows what I am trying to do. I need seven smaller ellipses equally spaced around a larger ellipse. I have created one and changed its rotation point to the center of the larger ellipse. It works fine if I manually rotate it but if I enter a precise rotation value (51.428571429) in the transform panel, the rotation point is ignored and it just rotates around itself. Thanks.
  9. I do love Designer and Photo and I am now looking for more precision so with that in mind please look at the accuracy of your program - with regards to the following: 1) When using the pen tool and snapping to a curve, if I zoom in using the super zooming ability of Designer, at a high enough zoom level the snapped node is actually not touching the curve at all. 2) Please allow me to specify more than 1 decimal place on all text and paragraphs properties I.e. leaning, font size, kerning, character spacing... when designing text to fit an exact area, it is very useful to bring back a single word orphan/widow by adjusting by 0.000001 without having to stretch the text box and distort the text. It may sound extreme but this kind of accuracy can be useful. You should definitely consider this on your up coming Publisher / InDesign alternative. 3) Allow us to snap to the ‘notches’ on the rulers like in Photoshop when you hold shift 4) Allow us to choose which rotation angles to snap to when using the rotation tools. An option in the preferences window to manage it would be great :-)
  10. I cannot find the option for choosing the decimal precision. In Inkscape, you could set the amount of significant digits to 5, for intance, this resulted in the shapes' coordinates looking like this: 5 significant digits: 1.2345 12.345 123.45 1234.5 3 significant digits: 1.23 12.3 123 My whole web application is based around SVG (dragging around on a big SVG map,) so it will probably see a size reduction of at least 25% solely from dropping the three decimals in all coordinate numbers I know you can just do a regex find in an editor and search for \.\d\d\d and just delete all occurrences, but that gets tedious to do manually every time I want to export svg
  11. Hello... I know that y'all are working in the road map, and one of the features asked (trace bitmap).. Here I will give y'all a image that I would like that the quality of this be so good that can convert kind of this images... you can select another for examples... but I know that That one is pretty difficult. I tried different software and cannot give good result... Hope you can do better. Here is the image. Be creative in add tools for do this kind of stuff. I will love more affinity, I love it right now but I will love more with this and I know that many peoples too... Many software are not so good tracing small lines or objects... and cannot give smooth results in pretty curves. what y'all think. Thanks!
  12. Hi Affinity Designer devs, ;) as Desktop Publishing needs precison and strictness, scaling and positionning are must-have options for professionnals while importing photos or illustrations in a document. While selecting a photo you should have access to its scale in percentage vs its original size and then be able to numerically modify it. It would also be great to be able to numerically change the x & y position of the image in the container block. The summum would be to display the original resolution of the image file in dpi and the calculated resolution of the image on the printed Designer document. For now, the missing of these basic functionnalities prevents me from using Affinity Designer for my professionnal production. In a more general way, the more you give precise control to the user on the document's contents, the better it will be for a professionnal use. :) Thanks for your involvement in this promising software. Best Regards -- Fred
  13. Coming from Illustrator, I am confused as to how to fine tune my gradients in Affinity Designer. In AD, it seems like I must use the Gradient Tool to create and edit my gradients. Is it true there is no precision editor in AD? In Illustrator, you select your gradient, then click Gradient in the toolbar at right, and you then have command of just about everything imaginable. But in AD, I must select my gradient, then switch to the Gradient tool, and then there is a line that appears over the gradient object, which allows me to change colors, add points, move a slider, etc. But editing on the object itself isn't always preferred. And often when I slide that slider, it snaps to points, even though I have snap disabled, preventing me from making precision edits. I figured out I can kill that snap by holding down the option key, but it's still not super precise to do it like that. In Illustrator, I can type in an exact percentage figure. No way to do that in AD from what I can see. Or is it just me? Am I missing something? It would seem only logical and intuitive that if I click on a gradient and then double-click on the round color circle in the "Color" tab at right that it should open up a precision gradient editor for me.
