  1. Whenever I create a new document, it ALWAYS has transparency off. I absolutely hate that, I often forget to go to the color tab and enable the transparency. Is there a way to enable that by default? I really like AP2 but it's doing so many annoying things that it always takes those few extra set of steps that you have to take in order to achieve normal functionality that every other software has.
  2. As per this help article, I understand how to manually distribute and space objects each time, but is there a way to do this automatically/dynamically so I don't have to manually click these buttons every time my objects get adjusted? I've attached a video showing what I mean. My use case is with text in a template that will change each time. I have three pieces of text all on the same horizontal axis. I want them to be evenly spaced apart and take up the whole width of the red rectangle. I would like it so that whenever I change the text, it will automatically re-distribute the three pieces of text (as shown manually in the video). I've sort of accomplished this by combining all three pieces of text in one text box using the Frame Text Tool, then setting the text justification to Justified All. Unfortunately, this spaces out all of the text and I would like it spaced apart only between the three groups where the spacing within each group is not affected, but the spacing between each group is adjusted (basically where I put the two dots "•") so that the three groups span the width of the rectangle whilst maintaining the original spacing of each group. I hope this makes sense... In the video, the top row of text is accomplished using the Artistic Text Tool where the Left text is left aligned, the middle text is center aligned, and the right text is right aligned. The bottom row of text is accomplished using the Frame Text Tool and the text justification is set to Justified All. Could this instead be accomplished using Constraints? If anyone knows another way to achieve what I'm going for, I would love any suggestions! Screen Recording 2024-06-27 at 5.30.50 PM.mov
  3. I've been a happy Affinity user for quite a while. Upon launching Affinity Photo 2.5 today, it asks me to activate my license. When I enter my details it says 'please try again in a moment'. Tried Designer and the same thing happened.
  4. Is there a way to disable spellcheck, or at least the wavy lines in Designer?
  5. Was getting ready to use Designer and the app crashes every time I launch. The other 2 programs (Photo and Publisher) launched successfully and have been upgraded to 2.4.2. What do I do? Crash report attached. Thank you. Affinity Designer 2 Affinity Store-2024-04-18-195216.ips
  6. I have an oval. I need to get the letters "GSD" to fill the oval, to take on its shape. What's the easiest way to do that? I'm attaching an image of the shape, next to the letters. How would I place the letters inside the shape, and have them warp to fill the oval? It's an experiment to build a logo later.
  7. Trying to work on typing this booklet for a game so I am using a 2 column format. For the rest of the booklet, this hasn't happened. Why doesn't the text stay and keep within the text box? Did I mess up a setting when making my text styles? or is this something in the column settings? Thank you for any help!
  8. I re-downloaded the exe-installer multiple times. The Error persists. Setup File may be corrupter on Server Side. Windows 10 64 Bit Professional
  9. I always wondered why it is not possible to copy layer effects (and paste them to other layers). As a workaround you can sometimes make a style template, but it seems overkill and is only possible if all other properties should be the same as well, so I am typically finding myself copying the settings manually. Or maybe I missed something and it is possible?
  10. Even on a new Windows 11 PC all three apps (photo,designer, publisher) only work with Win-default language (german), but do not switch to english. The Photo Beta 2.4 changes languages as normal). Different issue: No recent-files on designer 2.3.1 I purchased all three apps on your initial V2 promo. Please advise
  11. On Win 11 my latest installed versions of Publisher and Designer 2.3.1 do not show "Open Recent" files. Photo 2.3.1 works. Is there a setting somewhere, I miss?
  12. HI there i was hoping to clip some shapes inside an object and roughen the edges using a textured stroke set to erase to get the attached effect but as soon as i add the shapes inside the object the rough edges disappear. the same happens on both windows and ios. Is this a known issue? and is there a workaround? many thanks
  13. What is the process for copying a gradient from an object's stroke context to another object's fill context? Quick edit: I just added the gradient to the swatches list for now.
  14. Hi everyone, just want to check: currently in the last version, if I want to delete an object, the Delete key doesn't do anything, only Fn + Delete does. Is this intended? If so, could you at least let us choose in the settings? Within a text frame, everything works as intended. This is new in the last beta, and I find it a very poor idea. The previous behaviour was way better. Thanks, have a nice day!
  15. Mac OS 13.2 Affinity Design 2.1.1 Steps: As designer persona, create an artboard of an arbitrary size. Assign a 64x64 simple grid to the artboard. Enable snapping. Place a small shape in the middle of a grid cell. Draw a transparent rectangle with no outline from the top-left to the bottom right corner of the same grid cell. Group the two objects together. Ensure that the resulting group is 64x64px in size, and its position is at integer coordinates. Navigate to the export persona. Open the Layers dock and select the group from step 6. Press the "Create" slice button at the bottom right. Expected: A 64x64px slice is created. Actual: A 64x65px or 65x65 slice is created. This issue doesn't allow me to quickly export a lot of same-size images. I'm forced to draw or adjust slices manually. Thank you.
  16. load time of Affinity Photo V2 ist 4:50 ! What a shame... My device: Prozessor AMD Ryzen 5 5600H with Radeon Graphics 3.30 GHz Installierter RAM 32,0 GB (28,9 GB verwendbar) Systemtyp 64-Bit-Betriebssystem, x64-basierter Prozessor Win 11 Any Ideas?
  17. Hi, In Photo and Designer 2.0.4, Windows 10, the EXR export function does not work when using the "layered" preset. Hardware accelerated performance option makes no difference. Steps to reproduce: Copy any image into a layer, add some text (just to get a second layer). Go to file->Export Select EXR Select Preset: OpenEXR 32-bit linear (layered) The 'generating preview' window on the left loads forever and never finishes. If you press the 'export' button anyway and select a file name for the export, it fails with the error: "An error occurred while exporting to: <filename>" Exporting without layers works fine, it seems to be specifically the layered OpenEXR that doesn't work.
  18. Hi, I am using Affinity Publisher V2 on mac and the text ruler won't show, even when "Show Text Ruler" and "Frame text ruler" is checked. I selected the text box and the text — nothing. I tried toggling the guides and preview mode on and off, and I even tried restarting the app — but still, nothing. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Colleen
  19. I'm currently finding that all my basic brushes have some level of opacity no matter what. I was curious if something might be wrong. Here are my settings... I'm on window's 10 using designer version 2.0.4
  20. Hello. Is it possible to get multi-lines of text on a curve in Designer? (or Publisher or Photo). Currently, the only way I can accomplish this is to copy the path, move it, then replace the text with the next line. It would be nice to be able to do this with one step rather than two. Thanks. MacOS 13.1, M1 Affinity 2x apps updated to latest
  21. Hello. I tried to search for an answer to no avail. My issue has been happening at least since v2.0 (it's been happening long enough that I don't recall, and I keep hoping that the minor updates would fix it --alas, it still is happening and it's driving me bananas). MacOS13.1, M1 Photo 2.0.4 This happens to a number of tools, but definitely with the selection brush. Now, sometimes the indicator will match the brush's size, but only after selecting the brush, then selecting some portion of the image (with incorrect indicator), then changing the size of the indicator, etc. Actually, it seems pretty erratic. I'm pretty sure that the brush indicator used to match the size of the brush. Now it's not. Lastly, when the brush is selected, but I am not actually selecting anything yet, the brush indicator is the system arrow cursor rather than the brush size indicator (dotted circle outline), so it's difficult to see where to start selecting. This is very evident in the below video. Any assistance would be helpful. Would it be a setting? Is it a bug? Thank you. Pictures worth a million words: A - this is the expected functionality. The round brush indicator is the size of the brush. B - I changed the brush size to a larger diameter, but the indicator is the same size as before, but it's much smaller than the actual brush size, which makes it difficult to accurately select the edges. Yellow indicates the width of the brush tool indicator. Green indicates the actual width of the brush as selected via the context-aware tool bar. C - Now I decreased the brush size, and the indicator is the same size, but the brush selection is much smaller. Again, yellow indicates the width of the indicator, and green indicates the actual width of the brush. And if the photos don't help, here's a 20sec video. Yes, this screenshot video is me working in Publisher 2.0.4 with the Photo selected. It also happens when working directly in Photo 2. 2023-02-02_07-25-50.mp4
  22. I created some table formats for a worksheet. Today I opened a new project / worksheet and I had to notice that all my table formats I have saved are gone. So I went into an old worksheet and there they are. Is there a way to save formats globally, so that they are available in every new project / worksheet I build from scratch?
  23. Howdy folks - I'm having a hard time figuring out why this scenario happens to me. Two curves, and I want to subtract the red circle from the black shape. The first image shows the two curves and me selecting 'Subtract. The second image shows what happens (rather than "punching" a hole out, it just turns black). The third image is a simulation of what I expect. I'm about 99% sure it's something silly, but for the life of me, I can't remember why it does this. Where am I going wrong? I added the sample file as well. Frank curve_subtraction.afdesign
  24. Nesting/clipping/parenting is behaving strangely in regard to the artboard. Moving objects outside artboard breaks nesting order, ruins clipping arrangements. See the image, try the file included. My expectation is that the objects within a shape MUST stay within that shape and not be taken out of it just because they have left the artboard area. breaking parent relationship.afdesign
  25. Just to make it easy to show what I mean, I’ll upload a screenshot. Does anyone know how to align these perfectly?
