  1. Hey guys, First of all, wonderful job on this app. It's so promising and I'm so happy to be a part of the community. I haven't been able to integrate it into my daily workflow because it's missing some key points, and every time I use it I stumble upon a lot of those. One small detail which actually makes a big difference on regular usage is the fact that while creating a shape or resizing it, I can't hold space bar to move it. That's a feature most vector graphics apps out there include, and it makes life a lot easier in terms of positioning elements on the screen. Does anyone else miss this?
  2. I'm new to affinity, trying it out to see if I like it. But I'm struggling here.... How do you delete or erase part of a line segment in a shape? I have two overlapping shapes, and I want to make them into one and delete the overlap. I rasterized the shape, but is there a way to un-rasterize it in its new form? Or is there a way to get a cleaner cut from a line segment with out it being pixelated in the first place?
  3. Hello there, Today I noticed that for some reason, the selection of a compound shape shows an outline that is different from the actual shape. But this only happen on a very particular region, one that have a round corner applied. To be honest, this is not a big problem for me, I am just curious about it, not sure if it is a bug, a mistake I did or if it works like this by software design (probably not). Here is a screenshot, look how the outline of the selection differs from the actual shape in the round corners. Maybe I am doing something wrong?
  4. I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm new to Designer and I have been watching the tutorials to get help, but now I"m stuck. I watched the tutorial about "power duplicate" and in the tutorial when he creates another star shape, in the layers you can see that the star shape is in the same layer as the original star. When I create a copy of my star shape Designer is creating the star shape in a brand new layer instead of in the same layer. Instead of having multiple stars in the same layer like in the tutorial I have multiple layers of one star. Is there a setting I'm missing? Can someone assist me? HELP!
  5. Hi, everyone! As I haven't found any topic on this, so the decision was made to post a new one. I have one elliptical shape, which I want to be distributed along any free line at certain density. Something like the image below, only at much higher density, but just so you can understand my needs. Maybe just a simple vector brush would do? But I haven't figured out how to make one. — the shape actually mustn't rotate; needs to stay in its default orientaiton — I would prefer the shape to have an exact dimensions (set in milimeters) — variable density would be useful, but not necessary Is there a way to do this in Affinity Designer? I need this for typeface design :) Thank you.
  6. Hello there! :) I have a really strange issue with my Affinity Designer. Maybe I unconsciously pushed some wrong buttons before, but when I click any object, it gets this weird pink-ish outline coming from nowhere. See the attached file. The huge green shape actually is drawn as the pink outline shows, but the Corner Tool is applied so it doesn't match in corners. Also the odd happens to text, you can see on the left only the first letter gets the outline. I should also add that it is only a viewer issue, Designer doesn't create an actual object/shape and the outline doesn't show in exports. Plus I tested and it seems to be app-oriented stuff as it happens to all documents I open and then select an object. Thanks for any input on this. I've tried going through the View menu and Preferences, but couldn't solve it on my own. Regards, Radek
  7. Hey all! I am having a problem with a shuriken I designed. I made a star and omitted sections by masking with other shapes. The only problem is that the whole outline is rendered with the image when I try to export. How can I be rid of those lines so that only the shuriken is rendered, not the whole star in outline form?
  8. Hi everyone - I've been trying to solve this for a while now and can't. I'm sure it's obvious but...I've lost my special shapes. On my left hand dock, I have the rectangle through the triangle tools and below that the "A." I've used the special shapes (cog, star, etc.) before but now I can't find them. I lost a bunch of stuff today somehow (control panels, etc.) and got everything back except this. Can someone tell me how to restore or find these shapes? Thanks so much in advance! Katie
  9. Hi, Something strange happens when I want to get the selection of a shape on a rotated image. Here is the process : 1- Open an image 2- Rotate it (Document/Rotation 90°) 3- Draw a closed shape with the pen tool (P) 4- Create a selection by cliking the "selection" button in the pen tool options As you can see, the selection appear at the wrong place, as if it kept the old image coordinates (before the rotation). Thanks by advance to your answer. Note : It would be good to click on the "mask" button and having the possibility to invert the mask ... problem_rotation-shape-selection.mov
  10. Hi, I draw some strokes for a logo (look at the attached picture). I used strokes and changed the pressure to have different width along the line. The end of the stroke is round. I wanted to export my work in eps format to be able to print it ou use it with Illustrator... I saw in the eps file in illustrator that the round of my stokes became broken lines. Come back in AD, I decide to vectorise the stroke (layer menu). In french it's called "vectoriser le contour". And I obtain the same result : broken lines... Is it a normal behavior ? I also wonder why there are so many nodes (and no tools to simplify all those nodes). It's very difficult to change/adjust quickly the curve with so many useless nodes !! I hope my explanation is clear. Thank you.
  11. Hi guys, This is a workaround tutorial. I have summarized the findings of this discussion thread in a short video tutorial. It shows a way how to make a shape, how to assign a distortion filter, how to adjust the effect within the shape and how to make the effect movable around the picture. However, it also shows the limitations. It is currently not possible to directly associate a shape with a lens effect. Better would be: that we could assign a live filter directly to a shape, that the life filter is moving its position relative to the shape Possibly, the Affinity Photo team can comment it? Best regards Blauer Claus Tutorial Distortion Effect.mov
  12. Hola amigos, después de mi ausencia hoy les traigo una identidad corporativa utilizando affinity designer si me gusta mucho ese programa. les dejo una muestra del logotipo para conocer mas aplicaciones del logo, pueden entrar aquí : BEHK
  13. Hello, Just started vectoring my first big piece of artwork with Affinity and hit upon a snag... I cant find the eye drop tool? Within my work process I create a shape, add outline colour, point thickness, apply internal colours and style - then when creating a new shape that requires the same treatment click cmd + i, bringing up the eye drop tool which clones styles onto the new object. Is this possible in Affinity? its a bit of a pain to manually do each shape and item.
  14. Hi there, there is something strange with "export to PSD", if I export a shape directly drawing in Designer, the shape remains vector shapes in PS, but if I work with a SVG in Designer and export it to PSD, the shape becomes a bitmap in PS. Why? What is wrong? Thank you (OS X 10.11.2 - AD 1.4)
  15. Do you have a plan to make this for multiple selecting shapes? It will make AD more powerful :).

    Distort Tool Menu

    It would be super awesome if more was made of distorting shapes. At the moment if you hoover the mouse over the protruding centre line at the top of any shape and wait, you get a little icon which is two arrows pointing in either direction, you can click and drag this to skew the shape a little bit. But they you need to keep rotating the item then turning it a bit if you want to adjust it and it can be a bit of a pain. It would be great if there was a distortion menu which allowed you to just selected pre-made angles for which your shape could distort too, so for example isometric left, isometric right, 45 degrees etc.. and if then you can add advance alteration like changing the percentage of the skew and the manually pick the direction that would be perfect! Really awesome work on the software so far I use it everyday now!
  17. Hi all, I want to - place a photo in a Designer doc; - put a bunch of vector shapes on top; - and use them to chop up the photo into those shapes. Is there a tutorial that would show the use of shapes as cookie cutters like that? Thanks in advance! - pbass
  18. Hi all, I am a new user of Affinity Design and a true beginner! I want to create a simple cone shape but I'm struggling to figure out how...I am literally trying to copy the shape below. Any tips would be appreciated :) Thanks guys! Reena
  19. Hey guys, any chance of building a REAL spiral tool, not the clunky, old skool ¼ circle style, but a true spiral that grows at each advancing point...?
  20. Hey guys, I'm making an origami book, I want to make a vector line that show the guide to follow the instruction steps, but I want to make it has circle or other shape with loop instead of just normal bold vector line. How to I do it in Affinity Designer? If I want to make an shape different in the loop like 1 triangle shape after 5 circle shape, can I do it? Please let me know as soon as possible! I have been download the Affinity Designer trial to make my book, just started using it, still a bit aliens to it! If you like to help my book, you can help me by fund me at my fundraiser page to buy this app and Affinity Photo to make my book! Link: https://life.indiegogo.com/fundraisers/help-chin-to-buy-apps-to-make-his-first-book/x/10397640 Thanks!!!!
  21. Can the shape transform and text transform controls be the same or similar at least? e.g. When selecting a corner point and moving mouse to change the shape/transform size etc: For shapes: Hold shift+cmd, move mouse = For Text: Hold Cmd, move mouse For shapes: Hold shift, move mouse = For Text: Hold nothing, move mouse So when I'm selecting an shape and fixing it, then a text, it gets a bit confusing sometimes. I accidentally use text transform protocol for shape transformation vice versa. It feels disorienting like getting used to working in one program or OS, then trying to do the same thing in another program or OS.
  22. Hi everyone, I'm new on Affinity Designer and I got a problem concerning the path type. ( I've already checked the instructions in the helped menu but that doesn't work for me ). I hope you'll understand me because I work on the french version so that the traduction of the tools may not be exact. Well here's my problem: First I create the curve that will define the curve of my text, then I use the text box tool and I click on the curve I've juste created in order to insert a text that follows the curve. The text insertion zone is in the rectangular zone that defines the curve but the text doesn't follow the curve !! The photo attached shows where my text insertion zone is and how my text appears when I try the make a path type Thank you so much if someone here can help me, I've tried everything and I'd be very grateful ! :) Antonin
  23. I have two shapes that I want to add. When I click on the add button, the result is not what should be expected. This is the shape I am trying to create, not sure if this is the best way to make it though. These are the two shapes; a rectangle, and an octagon with a hole. And this is what happens when I click on Add.
  24. I created a simple document with 3 trapezoids (one big and two small). When I try to subtract the small ones from the large one, the angles of the subtracted trapezoids changes so that it takes out the wrong chunks. Trying to convert everything to curves beforehand does not seem to fix the problem. I'm not sure if the subtraction performs some extra calculation that it is suppose to that I just don't know about and perhaps I just need to approach this differently. Is this the case? Or am I doing something else wrong? Or is this some sort of bug? Attached are pictures showing before and after subtraction. Thanks for the time!
  25. Hi! AD was an awesome app and I already bought it yesterday, just hoping that you can add a feature like in Illustrator, the "Recolor Artwork" It's a very helpful and advance feature for us Designers aside from just adjusting using HSL or Recolor adjustment layer. :) And another one, a feature where you can drag the shape holding the space key while using shape tool. :) Last but not the least a "Color Guide" tab where the program gives you diff. shades, tints, values of colour you clicked with an option of Complementary, Analogous, etc. Take your time and more power to AD guys! :) Thanks!
