  1. With the Point Transform Tool, in Affinity Designer, you can resize a particular part of the image to the size you want. Using the Point Transform Tool, in some cases can be more convenient and visual, than just resizing. https://affinity.help/designer/English.lproj/pages/Tools/tools_pointTransform.html In the example below, the Vector Crop Tool is also used to temporarily crop the image, for easier manipulation. The Vector Crop Tool simply puts your layer into a rectangle, it doesn't change your original image. Rescale2.mp4 A simpler method, but not in all cases. Rescale3.mp4
  2. I'm trying to increase the resolution of a series of vector graphics I did several months ago for printing by Lulu (requires sRGB rather than CMYK). The composite graphics (crossword grids) were designed for onscreen usage, so the overall resolution was left at 96 dpi, but I now realize that my new Affinity Designer (first time usage) has a rescale option. I have increased the dpi from 96 to 300 and maintained RGB/8 (not RGB/16 or RGB/32), I then exported to PNG and PSD (preserve accuracy), but I don't see any visible difference besides a more than doubling in file size. I plan to use Affinity Publisher to incorporate the grids into the final book. Will the reworked crossword grids be sharp enough for printing? Q--6th draft.psd
  3. I was working on an assignment for my technical writing course and half way through I decided to rescale the whole document from A5 to A6, including rescaling all the elements of the document. There is a lot of text flowing between text boxes in the document, and for the most part that is working OK in the resized document. However, in one or two boxes, the text has ended up not being resized. The real trouble is that it gets resized as it flows from one box to another. It is getting very confusing and it is hard to keep track of exactly what is happening to the text, but it seems to be that if I try to correct the corruption by reassigning the style concerned to the text, it then gets resized again as it flows into another text box. In the snapshot of the document that I am sending you, it is currently occurring on page 10. "If the alarm switch is off, the alarm will not activate" is supposed to be 8pt, but it is 5.6pt. The heading following is currently in the correct size (because I corrected it), but the text after is supposed to be 8pt, whereas it is in fact 11.4pt. There was quite a bit of back and forth between the two text boxes to get it into its current mess from its earlier state of mess. I am using Publisher on Windows 10 21H1. clock manual A5.afpub
  4. Publisher Spread Setup: facing pages Workflow: change document size in "Spread Setup/Dimensions" (in my case to smaller) choose "Object will rescale", in "Scaling" Apply with OK Error: all guidlines placed over two facing pages will end up on the left page! See Screenshot (16).png befor, and Screenshot (1).png after
  5. It would be interesting if there was a way to scale up a document to a defined format (printer or whatever else demands the format). This would mean making a choice of crop or adding blank space for existing content, but at present, any rescale to such a format means: 1- decide on format (say, A3 borderless, or SRA3 to make it a bit more challenging); 2 - look up the dimensions of the format on the Internet; 3 - go to doc rescale and enter those values. Admittedly, it means adding doc formats and there are many to choose from (try finding that SRA3 format, for instance, in a printer setup - usually it means using the "custom" setting) so maybe a good way would be an ability to add custom formats which then could either show up in a selected format (pixels, cm or a new category "custom") only, or universal (translated across the spectrum of measurements). This also requires that entry of such formats should support a variety of entry methods for the dimensions (pixels, mm etc). The benefit of a "custom" approach is that it ensures you don't have to wade through lots of sizes you don't need (unless there is a system to manage the visibility of those options, but all of that gets complicated again) - you can still offer a list of preset formats to help creating such a custom format. So, the process would be: 1 - (once) set up custom format and name it (let's stick with SRA3 for now) - also requires custom format manager; 2 - choose document resize, "custom" and select "SRA3" (possible option to add a custom format on the spot as well); 3 - choose either freeform or "fit/fill/original size with added blank space or crop off excess" scaling of existing content (although that can handled by scaling the canvas instead of the document - always have to think which one does what). Unless, of course, you already have this hiding somewhere - I do keep finding new things every time I use the software :). (by the way, is it just me or does the preview not like numbered items? As a result, I decided not to use them in the text above).
  6. I'm new to Designer, so maybe I'm doing this wrong but it seems counterintuitive and I'm struggling. I created a document and added a bunch of guides to it. I then realized that I needed to resize the document, but I didn't want to reposition all the guides again. In the resize document window, the option to rescale objects doesn't seem to include guides as "objects", so that didn't work. Ok, I thought, maybe it's because I put definitive pixel positions for the guides in the Guide Manager. Perhaps if I changed them to percentage positions then it would rescale their positions on the new document size. This would make total sense to me. If I position a guide at 30% vertically on one document, I'd like it to remain at 30% if I enlarge the document, especially if I have checked the option to rescale objects. Otherwise it renders all the guides completely useless. Unfortunately this didn't seem to work either! It changed all the percentages of the guide positions! I can't figure that one out at all. If someone has taken the time to define a guide position based on a percentage, why would they want it to change when they enlarge the document and select objects to be resized as well. Am I doing something wrong?
  7. Sorry if this has already been asked. My question is does Affinity have a feature that deletes unwanted spacing between two subjects in a photo? I have heard that iskysoft now has a product that rescales photos without rescaling the subject. This is an interesting feature so it would be cool if Affinity also had it. Appreciate your replies.
