  1. I often do forget and also have a hard time to find again resources that others or I have contributed over time here in the forum. In former times I've often oriented on MEB's Affinity resources page, which sadly nowadays isn't up to date any longer (probably it's too much work and too time consuming to keep that up to date). - Here are some links to my own resources section contributions, so I have and keep myself sort of an overview for these. Assets: A few Paper Effect Assets new Cat-Silhouette assets Common callout assets Hairstyle Assets Halloween I + II Assets Fall assets & styles set I'am Groot - Vector assets Numbering assets OS X El Capitan UI Kit assets Ruler back to school assets Some BW arrow assets Some Firework assets Some Fruit Assets Some Nicholas/Santa Claus assets Some Snowmen vector assets Star Wars - Mandalorian assets Washi Tape assets Xmas cutout assets & sample Xmas silhouettes Xmas cookies/gingerbread Xmas trees vector assets Macros: B&W play macros Matte Color Macro Rusty Boost Macro Styles: Div Metal Styles Fabric styles Fall assets & styles set Fire Styles Fur styles 1+2 Knock on Wood Styles Rust Styles Some Metal Styles Valentine texture styles Wild animal texture styles Xmas texture styles 1+2 Tools: afthumbs - Extracting PNG Thumbnails from .afphoto and .afdesign files new Affinity Designer Shortcut Mapper Affinity OpenCL Disabler (Windows tool) new v.1.3 A visual shortcuts explorer for Affinity Tools Delineate - A Raster/Bitmap to SVG Converter Thinning multi architecture Affinity apps under MacOS via Python to reclaim disk space new whatFileType - Detects file signatures and tells what sort of file it is new Various: Christmas Photo Storyboard Chalk brushes Daily Planner DE/EN localized - Letter (ANSI A) print template Daily Log DE/EN localized - Letter (ANSI A) print template Desk Calendar for 2019 Desk Calendar DE/EN/GR for 2022 Desk Calendar DE/EN/GR for 2023 Fall Photo Storyboard Halloween Polaroid Photo Storyboard OS X El Capitan UI Kit Pocketcalendar 2019 Reusing filmstrips as photo borders Round Calendar Reminder Stickers Xmas Card & Envelope Xmas cutout assets & sample Xmas FB Cover Xmas mug mockup Xmas Trees And most importantly ...

  2. Hi. I am using some STYLES collections in Designer V2 - imported them and they show up each time I start Designer. So far so good. BUT: When I switch to the Designer Persona in Publisher V2 these styles are not there - just the default style category. I can import the styles in the Designer Persona in Publisher V2 and use them. But each time I start Publisher V2 and switch to the Designer Personal the styles list is empty but the one default style category and I have to import the styles again.. I think the styles should show up everywhere in the Affinity suite as soon as I imported them and not disappear from one usage of Publisher V2 to the next. Thanks Chris
  3. I'm pulling this feature request into the light again, as it's important and missing. I am discovering how much I miss it day by day. I need and miss true, dynamic styles for graphical elements that work exactly like styles for text in Publisher. It has been requested before. The workarounds that are kindly suggested by others so that one can choose select similar are not workable for me. They are clunky, time consuming and result in poor organization of graphics. In other words, I can't use symbols, the existing "styles" or select similar for the purpose. I also create very, very varied content, so designing content to work with select same of any variation is only severely limiting. All my work involves extensive, detailed and highly varied vector graphics with or without effects, and I end up with really, really many graphical elements for which I use extensive or partial styling of the elements, where I insanely often and almost constantly want to be able to change attributes with styling. You get smarter along the way, both about how it should look and how it prints best. And I work months at a time on what I do. I'm really unhappy that it's not already implemented. Affinity Designer handles complex documents and rendering them quickly really, really well, so your customers are motivated to create complex documents and content, after all. And then you need dynamic, organised and advanced content management. And Serif, do you realize how wonderfully powerful Designer could be with true, dynamic graphic styles? 🙂
  4. Hello, here some styles, you may like... Some of the styles are two layer based: Glass, SwampCamping and SanFrancisco. ( As soon as I have more time, I will write an additional tutorial. ) Have fun. TextFX_05.afdesign MartinsTextStyles1.afstyles
  5. It was recently suggested that I create s single post showing all of the free resources we have made available via https://affinity.graphics as some were never announced here and some folks still don't know about Affinity.Graphics for finding resources. We just updated the site a bit and released 2 more free resources there, so stop by and check things out. You can find DSV's offerings directly at our Affinity.Graphics User Page. Attached are promo images of everything we've released to date. Enjoy!

  6. Here are some of my Text Styles converted from Photoshop to Affinity. Hope these work for you. They might need some tweaking for you needs. Let me know what you think. Enjoy.

  7. Hi. I'd like to make a black or colorless word logo with a rainbow stroke. Every time I try it fills in my letters and I do not see how to make a rainbow stroke. Is this possible please? Thanks!
  8. Here are also some Div Metal Styles (mostly dark textured/structured ones) for those who might have a need for these! The compressed AD styles files ... Div Metal Textures.zip
  9. Here's a little fall season set of some assets & styles for the community. Caution: the included Fall & Halloween styles are very huge in size, since these styles are build out of 3600 x 3600 px bitmaps, so they can also be used on demand for higher-res printing purposes here. The corresponding fall assets & styles set files: fall-assets.afassets (275 KB) fall-holloween.afstyles (283 MB) - Have a nice fall time!
  10. This time some Fire Styles (a few of them have transparency, though most do not) for those who might have a use for these things. - [NOTE: that these styles work best when used on very dark (preferable deep black) backgrounds!] The compressed AD styles file ... Fire styles.zip
  11. Here are a few wood styles: The compressed styles file: Knock_on_Wood.afstyles.zip
  12. Here are some Fur styles (based on bitmaps) for those who might have a need for such styles! The compressed AD styles files ... Fur styles 1.zip Fur styles 2.zip
  13. In much of Asia, it is usual to have bits of Latin-script text in a block of Thai, Chinese, or whatever. Right now I'm working on a restaurant menu where one field requires both Thai and Latin script. The next version will need Chinese, too. To make this look good I need a different font for each script. In Microsoft Word I can define a style that uses an entirely different font for each script. From the posts I've seen, in Affinity Publisher I would need to override a paragraph style with a manually applied character style for two of the three scripts. This is a pain, and since I'd have to do it over again whenever my merge data changes, I can't really use Publisher for this job. This problem must be hurting Affinity sales all over Asia, and I would think that applying a font according to a range of Unicode code points would not be a big programming challenge.
  14. So, I fell in love with Affinity after about an hour of playing with it. I bought it and started bringing my favorite assets over from Photoshop and Illustrator, including some styles I have been using for years on my web projects. I thought perhaps others could use them too, so here they are with a bonus set of sticker styles. Enjoy if they're of interest to you. UPDATE: New version 2.0! This time the gradients and strokes are tool editable. No more trips to the Effects Panel. This gives better and easier control of the styles. BONUS: By request, 4 atmosphere styles. Included is the AD file with all styles applied for you to play with. Will likely only open in the latest beta. Sorry. BONUS: Dream Metals styles! Aluminum, Gold, and Copper. Find these and more at https://dscape-llc.com/affinity
  15. See Pic attached. After unsuccessfully trying to replicate a chrome layer style in Designer I was about to give up and chalk this up to Designer just doesn't have the goods, BUT IT DOES! After studying the differences in both apps, I saw that a layer style in PS is going to be created differently in AP or AD. I studied why I wasn't getting the chromey effect in AD, I realized that PS has a gloss contour built into their bevel panel, and AD doesn't so I was stumped a while. Soon realized that gloss contour is almost the same or same as a curves adjustment so after tinkering more I came up with this cool chrome CUSTOM effect! AFFINITY ROCKS!!!
  16. Maybe the commands I'm after are before my eyes and I'm just not seeing them... Programs like Microsoft Word have "copy and paste text formatting" commands. The commands store character formatting and you can later paste the formatting to other text. With some editors, if a paragraph marker was part of the original selection, you can even paste the copied paragraph formatting—not just character formatting. Something like that could be very useful in Publisher. But are there such commands for use within text frames and I've just missed them? I see a keyboard shortcut for "paste style" but it seems to apply only to objects, not text formatting.
  17. I am copying text from a word processor into a Publisher document. I want to apply my main paragraph style to this text, which includes optical alignment. Problem: Sometimes the text I am copying includes local formatting, e.g., italicized text. Applying my style and clearing character formatting will unitalicize the italics. Apply Style and Preserve Character Formatting will keep the italics, but then it will not apply optical alignment. Is there a way to do this, short of manually reapplying italics?
  18. I am trying to update a 100 page publisher file and have updated the current body style to change the font size. This works fine for new text that I apply the style to, but hasn't updated existing text based on the body style which is still in the original size. Am I missing something obvious? Is there a preference somewhere to update all items with this style to the new style definition? Cheers Gareth
  19. Hi everyone these are some styles i created for use on individual letters , hope there good enough for everyone to find a use case for them. this is my first go at creating styles it is a 148.59MB DOWNLOAD. S.L_LETTER_STYLES.afstyles
  20. Time approaches quickly so here are some Xmas texture styles in case anybody has a need for such things (and as always you may freely use those styles to your likes): Personally I sometimes use such textures for backgrounds on greeting cards and stuff like that here ... Here are the compressed AD style files: xmas1.afstyles.zip xmas2.afstyles.zip Have a nice Xmas time!
  21. Would it be useful if you could import and export text styles? Single or multiple text styles together.
  22. On my wishlist: Object Styles that behave the same as - consistent with - Text Styles. All Apps. Meaning: They update; are amendable (currently not) They flow through to all objects where the Style has been applied In short: the same as Text Styles, but for Objects. Yes, I'm aware you might be thinking "so when Symbols vs Styles?". Styles are concerned with fills, strokes and effects. Symbols are mini artworks. …therein is the answer. Indeed you could have an Object Style applied to several Symbols, in theory, couldn't you? Scenario: Brand colour combinations comes to mind - a plc I worked for had six different colours, as well as two core colours in their brand manual. The six could be used in any combination or tint. No doubt a designer's choice of fill-stroke colour combination would be questioned by marketing, or the manager signing-off. Everyone has an opinion on colour. The value of being able to update a style once and let it flow through to multiple symbols and objects, in say, a 56 page company report nearing print deadline (as is always the way) - then change it back again when they decide they like the designers choice after all ....should be obvious. Hope that helps you grasp the "why". (Saves a designer having to do an all-nighter... again). !! Consistency: Currently we have two features called Styles in Publisher that behave in very different ways? Why? What justifies that? Maintain this consistency across all the Affinity suite too please. I've not checked Styles in all the apps, but the ideal is that all Styles, where ever they appear in whichever app they're in, behave the same and perform the same function - across desktop and iPad too. Thank you. ----------------- Really good start to these apps btw, really shaping up well - am a total fan - lovin them on the iPad especially. Appreciate they are in early versions, so still much to do. More things on my wishlist as they occur. Hope this helps.
  23. This is a feature/update I would love to see come to life at some point as it would allow for a lot more detailed styles to be used created and would offer an advantage over adobe. A newspaper effect would also be a sick and unique addition to it.

  25. Bonjour à tous, Est-il possible d'appliquer un style (dream métal - doré) à un pinceau ? Pour avoir un pinceau couleur or ? J'arrive à appliquer le style dream metal doré à un aplat ou à un contour simple (trait continu de base en faible épaisseur) mais je n'arrive pas à le combiner à un pinceau (type acrylique). Est-ce possible ? Un grand merci d'avance à toute la communauté !
