  1. Hi Tech Team I've updated to 1.5.4 Designer and went to make some shapes this morning (like you do on a wednesday) and found that I can't select the heart shape. It mustn't love me anymore :( I would cry but it won't let me select the tear shape either. On a mac running Sierra 10.12.1 Hope I've posted in the right place. Thanks for investigating guys Sara
  2. I will use this thread for all of my future bug-reports, unless my bugs fit in under an already posted thread, in which case I will post/reply to that thread. Bugs 2016-11-24 (Affinity If you make three rectangles and convert all three into curves, then proceed to select one vertex on each shape, move them around simultaneously, after that go to "Action>Smooth Curve" option in the context sensitive toolbar at the top. After that start pressing "Ctrl+Z". The shapes should get a weird "glitched-out" appearance and eventually return to a "normal" state. If you make a custom path with the "Pen Tool" and then proceed to make it into a "Style", the icon representing the "Style" will look glitched and crocked. If it is supposed to show a "preview" of the style in some other way than the default cog, then maybe a thumbnail of the object when turned into a "Style" would be better. Just a suggestion, not trying to be smart.
  3. Now, I seem to remember someone posting about this, so maybe its already here. But I was just using the shape tool, and I noticed that there isn't a custom shape option? I think this needs to be here! Thanks for your time!
  4. Hello everybody, I was wondering if there is an function, short cut in AD to create guides from shapes. Like cmd+5 in illustrator. Thanks in advance!
  5. Every time I try to do this with the effects the shadow goes both outside and inside the rectangle. I have a photo inside of the rectangle and I want for there to be a shadow coming from the rectangle onto the photo. I would think that I would go to "inner shadow" under effects to do this but it isn't working for some reason.
  6. Hi all, I'm new to AD: I was looking though one of the tuition videos and I see that the red handles appear about a third of the way up the point of the star. However, when I tried to do the same thing, I only get the handles at the base of the point -please see the attached screenshots: Is there a way of adjusting settings? Thanks in advance, Kevin
  7. Hi there! I'm a beginner in illustration and graphic designing. I'm currently confused when I try to add a shape with a shape, they form a silhouette of the shapes. But when i try to add a shape with a pencil or pen stroke, they are not forming a silhouette of the shape and the stroke. Hope you guys can help me. Thanks in advance
  8. It is possible to create shapes with no length or (/and) width. If you want to change this numerically, you get unexpected wrong results.
  9. Hi, I have discovered a strange bug. I am using Illustrator as a bridge to Photoshop – drawing an icons in Designer, copy them to Illustrator, and then paste as shapes to Photoshop. BUT, I cant paste shapes from AD to Illustrator if these shapes are red. Also, it seems to be green also. Thats a funny bug, but it is not really comfortable in a workflow. Thanks

  11. Hello, This are my first steps with Affinity Designer, and here my first question: - I found how can select a bitmap object, but can the selection convert to a shape? For clearify, see screenshot: Regards, Christophe
  12. Another tutorial. Enjoy.. :) Changing eye color using shape tool as a mask.. https://youtu.be/g2DvaGwBdEY
  13. Hi Folks, So heres one for you. Can you bend a shape, in my case a triangle? I have a series of triangle that need to have a slight bend in to give them that more fluid look. possible or not? and if so... how??? Cheers folks Mark
  14. Hi Folks, Happy new year and all that blah.... Quick questions, How would be the best way to go about adding a separate colour within a shape? I have created a a shape with a black fill and now within that shape I need to further add grey stripes/blocks. I need them to fill it accurately. If it was a square shape then no problems but this is far from square and has curves all over the shop. Any ideas? no doubt you will have, hence why a reply on this forum like nothing else :huh: Cheers again and thanks in advance Mark
  15. Hola amigos, les presento mi primer arte en Afinity Designer, hoy es el primir dìa que lo uso espero que me vaya bien. que tengan buena noche.
  16. Dear all, I am trying to create a simple vector shape logo, however when I use the divide boolean tool to erase certain parts of shapes I get a very thin white space between the divided shapes. I am probably doing this wrong, however would like to know if there is a way of dividing or erasing certain parts of shapes places on each other without this space as it is not as crisp as i would like. I have attached a photo to show what I mean. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks :-)
  17. 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!
  18. Hello! So, I've been working on designing the interface of an app I'm looking forward to create and I've ran into some problems. The first one is every time I go to move a layer to a higher position, it gets turned into a folder with the layer above it. Is there a way to move layers up and down, without grouping layers? I'd like to reorder them in the way they show up on the page... ( 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) Thanks! Also, I was wondering if there's a way to add a stroke/ fill to an image that I placed. I'm not sure what they call the image, but it has no background.. It's like just the symbol I want, but without the white background. Is there a way to add stroke? Thanks!! Riley
  19. Hi Everyone - I'm trying to draw a mosaic of different colored squares. I made bunch of squares, duped them, aligned them and changed their colors. I had trouble with some if the alignments but I can work that out. I've noticed that some of my squares have a thin red outline round them, even though their is no stroke. It's like the app is trying to tell me something but I don't understand :) I'm a bit new to working in vector - I know bits and pieces of various vector programs and am self taught. I looked around for answers but haven't found anything yet. I would love to stick this one out! Any answers? Thanks in advance.
  20. Add the ability to create guides from random shapes similar to illustrator (command-5).
  21. Hey guys, it would be great that when selecting any shape tool and hen clicking on the canvas brings up the Transform Panel and selects the Width input field so the user can insert the required dimensions and shape properties to build a shape to a specific size. It's a great UI shortcut for power users or CAD applications where the user can avoid wasting time creating a shape to guesstimated size and then having to enter the exact dimensions in the Transform Panel. Thanks for your consideration and congrats again on Photo... looks like it made it to Editor's Choice in the App Store already... that was FAST! UPDATE: Additionally, it would be great if the Transform Panel would update the X, Y, Width and Height fields WHILE the user is drawing out the Shape's to have live feedback on dimension and position coordinates.
  22. The plethora of shapes in Affinity designer is simply splendid. If the programmer is looking for more shapes to code, tell her to consider the coveted "L" shape. It is useful for drawing arrow heads, Tetris blocks, and to create the word LoLLipop. I have attached an image of the Firework rendition of the same tool. The AD programmer will undoubtedly figure out how to improve on it by including rounded corners, etc. Keep up the stupendous work.
  23. Hi I'm new to Affinity Designer and so far love it. I'm reaching out for help / tutorial. I am working on a t-shirt design that is layers over an oval shape. When I send off my design to the printer it shows the oval shape on a white box. Is there a way to just save the shape without the background? I have included an image of what is happening. Thank you
  24. Affinity Designer - Pie Hole Radius in pt instead of percent or choosable measuring unit would be beautiful! Great Great Software! Great Great GUI! Jørn
  25. Playing around with some of the shape options. File attached AD Shapes .afdesign
