  1. When I download some asset files and I go click on the file, it brings up a pop up that says I need to download an app from Microsoft store in order to open, but that doesn't work. If I go to Affinity designer and click import asset, it says "unable to import file". What do I do?

  3. Someone can help? I'd really appreciate! Photoshop: select all layers to be aligned Edit / Auto-Align-Layers Affinity Photo: select all layers to be aligned nothing found... 🤔 Cheers, Roland
  4. Hi. Please, I couldnt find the answer anywhere. What do the different color lines mean on the left hand side of some layers? I found out, orange is probably a symbol layer, but I came across a few others. Thank you.
  5. Hi. Please, is it possible to use and make your own vector brushes. What i need is to take a simple vector object and stretch it across a curve. Is it possible in the Designer? Since I couldn't find a solution, I'm affraid it's not possible. Thank you.
  6. Is there any way you can set a particular object as a default on Affinity Designer for iPad? Here's attached a screenshot of the desktop version to give you what I mean
  7. I do not know where else to ask this since there is no discussion category on the forum, but what if someone mainly use Affinity Designer (don't have access to Photoshop anymore), will there be companies that still accepts those kind of designers, or you really need Adobe Suites in order to even apply the begin with? I ask this, because Affinity Designer is such a powerful tool, and I like it, and I do not have Photoshop even though I used that in the past, but decided to just be done with it. So how would you go about applying for work if you're using a tool that's not "industry standard"
  8. Hello, i have a question how to CONVERT TEXT IN to SHAPE affinity designer? In Ai is so easy but i am not sure how i can do that in Affinity designer? Here is a link you can see what i mean. I am not sure how i can do that in Affinity Designer?
  9. Hi everybody, first of all I'm not professional at using Affinity right now but keen to improve. I've come to a point where I don't know how to proceed or not sure if there is a more clever way in doing it. My Target: I would like to fill in all enclosed areas in a vector frame. And have borders and the enclosed areas as seperate vectors. The vector consists only of borders surronding empty areas. My Problem Vector Below u find a vector work, where I would like to fill all enclosed areas with white while ( not really a must have but would b
  10. I used the pen tool on this program way back when (probably late 2017) and had no problem tracing my sketches into vector art. Now when I alt click a node (in 1.7) it turns the entire line straight instead of just removing one handle. Is this supposed to happen? Because right now the tool is virtually unusable.
  11. Does anyone know of a Photoshop plugin or a way to help recreate/simulate an old school illustration style like this? Apart from illustrate it from scratch? Thanks :D
  12. So I just bought Affinity Photo for my windows 10 pc, No viruses, malware, etc on this computer; I cannot open the application to begin with; there's nothing popping up on the screen, or anything of the sort, there's a small blue ball spinning by the cursor and then nothing happens, nothing in the task manager is open, which means the computer isn't even opening the application, I installed it on the default directory which is the C drive for me, I need some help because I got this for half off with the deal they're having and I hope that I can use it soon, can anyone help me? I used a Power
  13. Hello, I have just started to use Affinity designer but when I finished the design, i wanted to scale it to make it a bit smaller but everything changed. all the proportions broke. I actually used Shift + alt to scale it proporcioanlly but it did not matter. Should I check an option like in illustrator or something, thank you. Here i leave you an image with the before and after.
  14. I’ve got affinity designer on my iPad , I use this software for fashion CAD flats and moodboard purposes, I just would like to know how to correctly export these as every file type I’ve chosen so far turns my work pixelated I’ve had this issue with Procreate I went to print my artwork and it was really pixelated. This would be super useful to know so I can avoid making future mistakes. Thanks in advance
  15. Cool, i've been curious of what miter is? I noticed it in the settings.
  16. Is there a way to export global document colors to the SVG in a centralized way? eg. style/linearGradient or solidColor So as to be able to change one line of code and have all affected elements change their color at once! Thanks!
  17. I was editing a photo with Affinity Photo on macOS Catalina 10.15.1 and I wanted to preview it with the macOS Preview app, however when I tried to open macOS showed me an error message: (External update error 1) and I could not preview the file UNTIL I closed it on Affinity Photo. I am new to Affinity products and I come from Adobe, I don't remember this happening with Photoshop or Illustrator, is there a way to disable this behavior so I can open files while I'm editing them with Affinity Photo or Designer?
  18. As the title suggests, when trying to export a large file/artboard the export function just not working(or extremely slow, never checked how long if it is). any idea for a solution?
  19. Dear Team Serif, in Affinity Designer for iPad there is an Icon at the Studio Colour. See below the file. What is the function of that? Nothing happens, if I klick on it. There is also no explaining. I am curious, what can I do with that? Best greetings
  20. Hey guys, as the title suggests, when I'm using the selection tool on the pixel persona and use the snap to edge it selects all of the artboards. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?
  21. Hey there, Im currently using the AD free trial and would like to know if you need to upgrade to get the stock panel option? Thanks for the helpers in advance.
  22. Hey there, I was wondering if you could select an object without marking the whole object, like illustrator. Thanks for the helpers in advance.
  23. When I just open a file instead of open the app first, can you make the startup window disappear since I already decided what file I wanna work on. Another thing is, I don't get any notice when I get reply about my question, is there any setting I should turn on?
  24. Publisher is already at 1.7. What is the likelihood we will reach 2.0 within a year or so? I don't want to put out $40 for Publisher just to then have to pay another $40-60 to upgrade in a year-ish once we reach 2.0. Also, any idea if existing users will get a substantial discount once the upgrade hits? If we don't that'd be a bit of a slap in the face, having to pay as much as new users.
  25. Can someone provide me with the exact ratio and resolution for Instagram uploads, both as portrait and landscape without losing any of its quality Thank you in advance.
