  1. So I'm trying really hard to figure out Designer. I apologize for these nuub questions, but I'm just not finding answers in the forum, the help files nor the video tutorials. So I have the letter "A" that I've created curves for, and I want to delete the cross bar. Again, cannot figure out how I would select those two segments of the shape. I don't want to delete any nodes; I'd rather leave those and join them back together. How does one go about selecting (and in my case deleting) segments of a shape? I've tried selecting the shape with the node tool, and then dragging over the segments, but when I go to delete it the entire shape is deleted, not just the segments. If I click on the segments with the node tool, it appears to add nodes to the segment, not select the segments.
  2. Hello, there is something that is bugging me, or something maybe I did not understand the right away after watching Affinity Designer Tutorialvideos on your learn page. At first I was excited because you guys added the possibilities to add curves/nodes in one excisting curves/Path. Like in this Image I tried (1 Forum): Now I hoped that Affinity Designer would now recognize 2 different closed form in one existing path. I selected the fill tool, tried to hover it to the closed form on the right side, but instead of filling this closed form with a color, it does this (2 Forum): why? I hoped thos would speed up my workflow, but it seems like I still have to make 2 different paths in order for Affinity Designer to recognize 2 different closed form. Would be nice if Affinity Designer could recognize several closed form in one path! Does anyone have a workflow to this (workaround). I hoped to use the pathfinder tool much less (does AD also call it the pathfinder tool?) Oh, by the way, the isometric advanced tool is sooo awesome...good work serif
  3. Hi, I was trying to create a shape by overlapping a circle shape with another circle shape (the 2nd circle was only the stroke and with no fill) when I tried to crop (subtract) the first circle with the 2nd circle the program cut the shape as if there 2nd circle had a fill and ignoring it was only the stroke (see attached). I had to convert the circle in to a donut to perform this. Thanks
  4. I am trying to recreate the basic shape shown in photo 1 in affinity photo (photo 2 is my attempt). I figured the easiest way would be to use the circle tool and pen tool and then cut out the excess lines afterward. The problem is I can't figure out how to remove the unwanted lines. If you know how to do this, help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  5. While attempting to set the line width/weight for a shape, I ran into several problems. When using the shortcut, moving finger up and down on menu bar, I got the results I expected. When trying to use the slider on the menu, the line width jumped to maximum and would not be reduced. Direct numerical input resulted in random numbers based on whatever secret calculations the app came up with. Only through careful shortcut manipulation did I get the desired result. I’m not sure if the fact that the document was created using points as it’s measurement, which was later changed to inches. I don’t know if I need to set a parameter somewhere that tells the document to match the line weight measurement standard to the one the document is using. Maybe I just need to turn the app off and back on again. Either way, this looks like a fairly serious problem for users who rely on precision measurement control.

  6. I created this cute little penguin character in Designer. He started out as some basic shapes and I converted them to curves and added them together. Then I tweaked the resulting shape to create his body.
  7. Is there an equivalent to Adobe Illustrator's shaper tool I can use to quickly cut off excess elements of overlapping shapes? In Illustrator, once accessed using the shortcut shift + m, it can be used to quickly cut and combine selected shapes. (I have attached a video demonstrating the feature) Since this tool was pretty handy in quickly creating new shapes out of a bunch of others, it would be stoked to learn if something similar exists within Affinity Designer! Thanks in advance. PS: I am new to the forum and forums in general, so let me know if I may have posted this the wrong way Shaper Tool Demonstration.mov
  8. Hi, please, add comtrol points to the "Rectangle" and "Elipse" shapes to get even more control. Beside rounding corners on the rectangle with a control point (no need of extra "rounded rectangle" tool) we could do the following: draw any kind of shape; make any number of segments with additional control point; control the length of the segments with another control point; now we can convert to curve this object and add different types of arrows (when they will be available) on the each end of the curve (or on the both) and/or; we can apply any type of stroke (whey they will be available, of course) not only of this kind of curves, but on the lines too.
  9. Simple tutorial showing how you can create a vector compass using simple shapes.
  10. Hey guys, I am trying to create a logo wherein the background of the logo contains a label shape that is made of two intertwined shapes. The solid shape is both in front of the outlined shape as well as behind it (see attached photos). Question: Is there an easy to create this look using just two shapes or will I have two use a line to complete appearance of intertwined shapes? Thanks!
  11. Hi, I was working on a project and attempted to use the Geometry Add feature in Affinity Designer, but have encountered an issue. Please reference the attached image file for an example of my issue. The feature works just fine when I add a shape to the top of my a rectangle, however, when I add the same shape to the bottom of the rectangle and click Add nothing happens. I've messed around and tried a few different things, but to no avail thus far.
  12. Hi, only in Designer Beta, rectangular shape together with rounded corner rectangular and elipse are not included in "Shapes". There is also no "cat" shape in Photo Beta and Publisher Beta.
  13. Hey, just wanted to share with you my latest tutorial on Affinity Designer. In this video you will learn how to create a nice looking flat design moon in Affinity Designer. Hope you'll find it useful! Click here to view the tutorial
  14. what i'm thinking is another slider on the stroke modal window that controls how much the stroke is offset. on closed curves it would read outwards on one side and inwards on the other, or something like that, and i'm not sure for open curves, but it would be leftwards along the normal vector when moved to the left and rightwards when moved to the right.
  15. In Affinity Designer on iPad, is there such a tool that allows one to trim curves to other curves. For example, if I have a Donut Shape with a square shape on top of it and I want to take the tilted square shape out of the donut shape but want to leave the curves of two sides of the square intact while trimming the other two sides to the intersection of the outside and inside curves of the donut, then trim the donuts curves that fall inside the shape to the curves of the two edges of the square. In this example the Donut shape after the Trim would be a closed shape and the two lines of the square would be and open shape. If anyone is familiar to AutoCAD’s Trim tool, exactly that tools functionality but in Affinity Designer for iPad. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  16. Hey everyone! This is the first time I'm using the Affinity forum so I apologise if I have used it incorrectly. I have made a vector shape with a 20pt border around the edge. Is there a way to expand the vector to include the 20pt border? Thanks in advance, Matt
  17. Hello people, I am new to Affinity Designer and have a question to which I cannot really find the answer online. Hope someone here can help me. I have attached some pictures to clarify. I want to create a baseball cap made up of 4 separate shapes made with the pen tool. This because I want to add different fill colors to each shape. Is there a way to make Affinity close the lines of each shape automatically, so it follows the exact form of the adjacent line? If not, how would you go about it? Regards, Marlon
  18. Hi there. I've encountered this snapping bug (See GIF) many times and I'm wondering if this is a bug or something else. The problem seems to happen when an element on the artboard has been idle for a while (meaning it hasn't been touched or moved in a while) and when I create a new shape and try to align (snap) to that idle element the snapping guides don't appear at all. I have to select that idle element first and only then will the snapping feature work. Affinity Designers seems to not want to snap to elements that have been on the artboard for a while. Is anyone else having the same issue?
  19. Hi all, I know this must be simple but I can't make it happen. Take a look at the screengrab. I want this texture to fill the whole group of shapes. Can anyone tell me how to do that as currently I can only get it either behind all the items in the group or inside one of the boxes. Is there a way to do what I am looking for?
  20. whenever i devide 3 or more shapes with one another the result i get is a whole bunch of gory cruves (image) using the rounded rectangle tool with thecorner set to 50% inflicts the same weirdness creating a shape of only 'smooth points' again creates the gore, as well as deviding shapes with sharp points. can people recreate this? is this a known bug? often when i try to combine all the curves the program crashes.
  21. Hello! I have just purchased Affinity Designer yesterday, so I am new to this. I have watched some tutorials, but none of them seems to cover what I want. I have two objects, as seen on picture picture [1]. What I want, is for object [1] and [2] to share one side, like what it looks like they do on picture [2]. Now the side that looks like it belongs to both of the objects only belongs to object [2]. Therefore, object [1] is not a closed shape, and if I try to color it, what happens can be seen on picture [3]. Putting it one layer above does not work, as seen on picture [4], but it would not be a nice solution anyways. I want to be able to color both shapes to different colors. For this I need two shapes, that share the same side, or to copy that side over to the other object as well, and put the copy on top of the original one. So basically I want it to like what it's on picture [5]. Please note that picture [5] was done by editing the screenshot in Paint, and not in Affinity Designer, but what I am wanting to be able of is to do that in Affinity Designer. Thank you. Picture 1: Picture 2: Picture 3: Picture 4: Picture 5:
  22. I'm used to Serif DrawPlus, so I tried drawing arrows with the pen tool before realising that the shape tool was suitable. Unfortunately, it seems difficult to draw arrows consistently, particularly to get the arrow heads the same. So I can see that two arrows whose properties I have tried to match, don't. I know, I thought, I'll create a style! Tried that, can't see any confirmation that one has been created or any way of retrieving a saved one. Harrumph!
  23. To try and phrase this as clearly as possible: if you draw a shape (say, an ellipse), you start by selecting the anchor then moving the cursor with the mouse button depressed (i.e. dragging). Normally, the cursor and the boundary of the shape in question move in lock-step, as in, no matter how fast you move the cursor, the selected boundary of the shape is always in-sync with the cursor. If you do the same with the shift key depressed (with the default key bindings), i.e. to force the perspective and make the ellipse a circle, this lock is broken and if the cursor is moved too quickly, the shape will grow at what seems to be a linear rate despite the potentially non-linear movement of the cursor. I hope this makes sense. If it's really necessary, I can provide a screencast.
  24. I'd love to have a way to convert a vector line (which might not be a solid) to a shape. A good example is thickening text, but needing just the final outside shape, not a stroked line. The best case scenario for this is if the function only created the outside shape if the center is filled, or the shape is closed. Otherwise, you end up deleting a bunch of points on the inside. That's not the end of the world, but it would be great to not have to do that. In the attached example, you'd get the outer stroke of this 'T' and nothing else. (sorry if it's already possible and I missed it. I can't seem to find any way to do this) Thanks! AD is AMAZING and saves me from the hell of AI.
  25. Hello. I made abstract deer with triangles. When i try to join shapes (triangles) into one with Operations: Add I get following problem which can be seen on screenshot 2. Is there any other way to join shapes without getting problem/loosing shapes i made. Thank you in advance!
