  1. I detected this on Publisher, but it happens across all three apps When I try to write a line width in millimeters with decimals, as soon as I write mm the decimal point (or comma in Spanish) disappears. I must manually click and rewrite the point or comma. Steps to reproduce: draw a vector line or path Go to stroke panel and enter on the width field (which by default measures in pt) Write a decimal measure in millimeters (1.25 mm for example) As you write down the m's, the unit is selected with the first m and looses the decimal point with the second m and yo
  2. I've had a hard time adjusting the brush to act in a natural way for drawing. I've compared with mainly photoshop and sketchbook pro and posted numerous reports about this. There are a few issues like jagged lines on low zoom levels and general inconsistent behaviour of hardness and size. Things you only notice when drawing or writing by hand on a tablet or Cintiq. Now I think I found what causes the latter! I was able to isolate what is going on by setting the shape to a narrow ellipse and the stroke to large spacing. Look what the preview shows. There are 2 things going on here: 1
  3. V1.9.3, MAC OS 11.2.3, MacBook Pro 16" 2019 built-in screen, no exceptional hardware or software running. At default screen resolution. Expected: When I have a circle shape and set the stroke width to a high number, I expect the stroke to go al the way from the outside to the outline of the circles filling. What happens: A gap appears when the width exceeds the diameter of the circle. Also the shape of the stroke has different irregularities at different widths. Reproduction instructions: Create a new document. draw a circle shape set a stroke color and set t
  4. Great googly-woogly! Yes, ’tis moi and, as Popeye would phrase it, ‘I yam back ay-gain!’ with another exciting round of ‘Wha … !?’ Today’s Episode deals with the vagaries of Multiple Strokes (thankfully this is the artistic, not the medical, kind of stroke we’re dealing with.) In past, it has been possible to use the Appearance panel and the ‘Add Stroke’ operation to create multiple instances of strokes. Since installing 1.9.3, that has not been possible. No, I'm not dissing the latest version, merely pointing out a tiny glitch that (hopefully) is able to be resolved. I have attempt
  5. I have been trying the program for a few minutes it seems to be exactly what I need. Only a few things I need to figure out before deciding to buy or not. I draw mainly with the pen tool but I am unable to find the option to make the lines ends go thin in the edges. it gives the picture a pencil drawn like appearance. I notice something that looks like it in the stroke options but I am unable to apply it to a line. Notice that I am drawing with a mouse at the moment, maybe the option only works with drawing pad?
  6. How do I choose to position an object stroke on the inside or on the outside of a shape (i.e. a square or a circle or irregular shape)—rather the default stroke that straddles the shape border? Neither he Stroke panel nor the Appearance panel seems to offer this choice. Is it someplace else? I've been using "stroke alignment" options as long as I can remember in Quark. Thanks, lettergothic
  7. Having the ability to apply a raster brush to a path would be such a welcome feature, even if the path is not editable after applying the brush effect. In many cases there are obscure shapes or angled lines that are difficult to draw freehand, and in those cases it would be great to be able to use the pen tool, but still retain the same texture and style of the raster brush you were using, as if you drew the stroke by hand. I know you can apply vector brushes in AD, but I mostly use the raster brushes in AP to sketch. Furthermore, the brushes in AD are stretched along the path, whe
  8. Hello, I'm trying to make the switch from Adobe to Affinity. I have this issue that it only seems to show on my Wacom Cintiq 16. Every time my brush hovers over my strokes they drop resolution/quality. I'd love to draw in Affinity photo, but I can't get around the low resolution lines. Any help? is this a known bug? what should I do? Note: Page size is Default A4 size, 300 DPI. Affinity Designer "pixel persona" doesn't drop brush stroke resolution. (Which uses pixels as well) Wacom cintiq 16 drivers are up to date. Specs: i7-10700k 3.
  9. 1.9.2 - To hide stroke - Stroke size must be set to 0pt ... it seems that stroke color none is not enough to hide the stroke in the attached document. 1.9.2-bug-stroke-color-none-has-to-be-set-to-0px-to-be-invisible.afdesign
  10. Hi! I possibly found a bug. I tried to give a letter an outline with a selfdesigned brush to make its contour a little rough. So I created a new image, placed a letter with the Artistic Text Tool, scaled it by dragging its edge and then clicked on the brush in the Brushes panel. The brush was set to repeat, but the outline that appeared was stretched. So I controlled if this also happens to ellipses and rectangles. In that cases, it worked as it should. It has no effect to convert the letter into curves before. But sometimes, after having added some objects like ellipses, rectangles,
  11. Whats going on here?!?!?! Just having a mess around with Beta 1.9.2.1014 to test if it's yet possible to use for vector sketching without freezing (No not yet) and come across this bizarre selection behaviour, where you click on a stroke and it selects completely different stroke, but outline mode works as expected - see grab Bug?

  12. Why can I not paint in Affinity Photo? It is as if the program does not register that I am putting a black paint stroke on a layer...or any other color stroke for that matter.
  13. Hi, Is there a way to outline / fill a stroke? Thanks.
  14. Hello: The stroke colour of the table is different from the thumbnail of the table pannel: Thanks.
  15. This did not happen before, but now every time I finish drawing a line (black) with the Vector Pen Tool and my Tablet, I go to fill the new shape (Red). When I click the Vector Pen Tool, the stroke is now RED instead of black, forcing me to constantly switch back to black. This is the first time I've seen the color change based off of whatever color I used to fill a shape. Does anyone know how to keep the black as default and stop changing?
  16. Hi all, This is my request. -An gradient thats follow the stroke of the shape.
  17. I cannot seem to find a way to solve my problem. I made a shape in Apub and inserted some text in the shape. In Affinity Publisher you have the option through "Text frame" panel to change fill and stroke color of the shape. I now would like to add a brush to the stroke of the text frame but Brushes are not available in Publisher. No problem I think! I use the studiolink to ADesigner, but here there is no option of "Text frame panel". And I cannot figure out how to change either fill color or stroke color/type/brush of the shape that the text is embedded in, in Designer? The curios th
  18. Hi Working with the vector brush in designer, I noticed an interesting setting! The brush changes color according to the fill and stroke. I even like it, I change with x on the keyboard (like in photoshop) and I have the other color. The interesting thing is that when I change to none - I have black! Even when selected, the swatch indicates none but displays shows black! This may be an interesting attempt to avoid unpainted lines, but when checked, the program should show the correct line color values. Affinity Designer 2021-02-20 17-49-48_Trim.mp4
  19. Hi. I would like to know if its possible to expand a stroke while deforming it progressively as it expands. I have a triangle with rounded corners and I would like to make a topography layout from it. Thank you
  20. I have a question about curves / shapes inside another (parent - child). When selecting shape or closed path containing curves, stroke modification change only parent item. To change children strokes, they have to be selected separately. When items are grouped, there is no problem - changing group stroke make effect on all items in group. Is there a way to change child property when changing parent, or to select both, parent and child, to apply format for all items.
  21. I tried rearranging the panels within the right hand studio area, to see if it improved my workflow. Discovered that I lose the ability to resize the Stroke panel, and also that changing between the Stroke and Brush tabs causes a strange jump in size.
  22. I cannot get rid of the bluish stroke on my shapes. Happens with all shapes. As per screen cap no stroke is selected anywhere in the interface, the shape is not selected nor the group. Occurs in new documents as well. Mac os Catalina 10.15.7, external Samsung 32d850 (2560x1440), Intel iris graphics 6100. Thanks for looking.
  23. Hey Serif! First of all, loving the new 1.9 update! Tons of feature improvements and they're all awesome. There is a bug that I'm seeing in the select same tool. When I use "Select Object > Unstroked Objects" , it works the same as "Select Object > Stroked Objects". It selects only stroked objects and not the unstroked ones. Here is a reference video.

  24. Hi all! I've only been using the Designer software for a few days, and I have no previous with graphic design software outside of Photoshop. My problem is that every time I create a dashed/dotted line, the dots never seem to match up where they meet at the start and end points, does anyone have any advice? See the attached screenshot of the issue. Thanks guys!
  25. First off, Affinity is a stellar piece of kit. I am a very satisfied customer. However there is a small oversight that is really strange and I think should be fixed. So, I checked the help section, which was incredibly useful and very well designed, lovely experience. and I couldn't find any way to add strokes to selections. This seems like a really weird oversight. Krita and Medibang can do this, photoshop can, and so can gimp, but Affinity can't and that does sour the experience in an otherwise fantastic piece of software. I hope this feature is added to affinity photo in the near futu
