  1. The Secret to Sexy Curves is a 19 minute video about how to use the pen tool in Affinity Designer. I share the secrets to a perfect sexy curve and together we cover everything you need to know to successfully use the pen tool to create your own sexy curves. This is a great video for both beginners and intermediate users. You’ll learn how to join lines, add and delete nodes, determine the perfect placement for a node, and how to use and adjust the control handles. I’ll show you the shortcuts to moving in and around your artwork, and we’ll even set your mouse up to zoom in and out as you work with the pen tool. In no time at all you’ll be an expert user of the move, node, pen, and view tools. Join me in exploring the versatility of using the pen tool for all types of drawings: perspective, graphic designs, illustrations, fantasy, manga, cartoons, silhouettes, and literally anything you can trace with the pen tool. Using the pen tool is considered a core skill in creating digital media. Take your time, practice, and you’ll find it becomes easier every day. I’ve had a great time creating this video for you. If you like it - if you learned something - please show a bit of appreciation by subscribing to my channel. It really does make a difference. Feel free to leave comments, suggestions for future videos, and don’t be shy; go ahead and share your art with us. :-) Thanks for watching, & Happy Creating.

    Hi all, I have a text that is clipping an image. This text is using font that has some overlapping between some characters. When I exported it as PDF, the overlapped section, does not show the clipped imaged, instead it clipped itself and showed the background color. This does not happen when I exported to png. Pls find picture below as comparison Kindly advise. Thanks in advanced! E.

  9. Hello, I wold really like to see more text transformation tools so that we can make varied typography designs. Warp text and fish, etc. would be very helpful for logos, products, and printables.

  11. Affinity Designer 1.6.1 Hello there. I think this one is kind of bug. Type Korean text. Wait awhile or switch to other application. Noticed frame text layers after then. I have no idea where is it from. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Best regards. Cyrus. TypeKorean_720.mov

I need som help here, I create graphics and then text, I need to be able afterwards to change an manipulate the size and alignment. regards Petr
  13. Dobrý den Mám otázku. Je nyní možné exportovat v affinity photo soubor do PSD s tím, že vrstvy textové vrstvy budou i nadále textové vrstvy a ne pixel vrstvy? Vím že tato otázka byla řešena už několikrát, a že v ní padlo, že se tímto problémem budete v budoucnu zaobírat. Jak to prosím vidíte výhledově. Nyní je rok 2018, bude to ještě tento rok, nebo vůbec? Děkuji za odpověď Lukáš Sládek
  14. Feature requests 1. Stop Tab Ruler The current stop tab panel is rather frustrating, and often these things need to be designed rather than calculated. The same sort of thing as in Word, Illustrator, InDesign, Quark Xpress 2. Text box overflow Currently the text in a box flows out of the bottom of a text box. I read the reasoning why, however at concept stage (especially when using dummy text) I find myself having to delete lots and lots of Latin text, only to have to re-paste it in a few moments later once I've changed font size / box size etc. 3. Text box linking It would be really great if there was an option so that you could choose if the text flowed out of the bottom of the text box. Likewise the option of linking / flowing content between text boxes would be super-helpful. I know that these may appear more like options for a DTP package rather than illustration program, however there's often need, especially web concepts. Thanks
  15. Hi, I use Affinity Designer on Mac OS 10.12.6. I found copying and pasting text from Affinity Designer to other applications work on office apps such as Pages, Numbers and TextEdit, BUT it doesn't work on any web browsers, Adobe apps, coding apps, etc. I have to always copy and paste the text to TextEdit first, and then, to other apps I mostly use. I thought it's kind of minor bugs to be fixed soon with future updates, but after using Affinity Designer over a year and I still have this problem and getting tired of it Is anyone experiencing or aware of this?
  16. If i copy text - either as a block OR within the block as text - and try to paste it to another app - i get nothing. This is very frustrating as sometimes i creat copy for say a flyer .. in the app, and then i can't reuse it. Also kind of unbelievable. Copying between apps was one of the Mac's claims to fame, back with it came out in the eighties. Note i do have Alfred 2.0 running with multiple clipboard pastes - works for everything else.
  17. Argh. Created 3 x 120º segments (yes, to form a circle, thank you ) that were to hold text. I then spent the next half hour fighting the evil "text on a path" demons again, so eventually I gave up and created three plain circles so *I* was in control instead of whatever creation method was at the heart of a shape. Is there no way to tell a text on a text path to ignore the previous history of the shape that created the path (read: being flipped, rotated, mirrored, turned inside out and covered in bees - ANYTHING) and offer some options to solely make the TEXT flip, go into mirror mode, write backwards or upside down? As in controlling the actual component you are working instead of a hard and mostly invisible dependency on the characteristics and previous life of the underlying shape that created the path? I think adding that control to the text part would IMHO rather massively reduce the pain of text on a path. The present approach basically forbids the use of any normal shape manipulations such as flipping and mirroring because you end up paying dearly for that later when you convert it to a text path. You cannot flip or mirror the text on its own as you end up flipping the shape with it, which you then have to undo the effects of. Moving control to where it belongs ought to help.

  18. When I have two texts like this: "123456" and then "yay" and select this two text and want arrange it vertically to the some object with align bottom, they are aligned good but text with special characters, because text have some base line and there are characters which are out of this line (ypj... they are below). I mean when text like "123 abc..." it is ok, but when I write "yjp" and other signs which are extra sized (I am sorry, don't know describe it in english), because their base is lower then others, then text is aligned higher then other text without this extra characters, because bounding box take the extra sized characters. Question is, is there posibility change the bounding box to the base text line?
  19. Hi. Brand new to Designer and have a question about how to type on a path in a specific way. I'm hoping to move away from Adobe CC and this one feature will make or break my decision... I make and sell address stamps. They're all personalized to the buyer. In Adobe Illustrator, the solution is very easy to do but I can't figure out how to convert the bottom line (address section) so that it reads like the first image. The 2nd image shows what I have so far for the bottom. What I can't figure out is how to reverse and invert the bottom line. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  20. Hi everyone, Is there any way other than perspective distortion or maybe mesh-warp to transform/skew text like in the image?
  21. Completely new to this so not sure what I'm missing. In photoshop I could change the fonts just by having the text layer selected and scrolling through the list of fonts that I have. That doesnt seem to work in Designer. After I've typed in something and press enter I get a layer with all the letters on separate layers under it and picking different fonts doesn't change anything. How do you change fonts after you've typed in something?
  22. I'm a new user to Affinity and I'm looking for a tutorial on how to add text to an image that looks like it was written in sand. I've googled this and can only find tutorials for Photoshop. Anyone have experience with this and can provide instruction?
  23. In marathi/hindi language, words have joined syllables. But In P*******p I couldn't do that even if I pasted it from the google translate. So I found this solution in P*******p where you can change things in preferences. But Can't find the solution for affinity. Please Help! I have a lot of projects in marathi. I have attached the screenshot. This is the solution for P*******p: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2102748
  24. we really need these 2 tools for Designer: text envelope (example: to make the curved baseline of Netflix logo) text path (example: to make the text follow the circle around Starbucks Coffee logo) aside from that, i think another tool required is contour tool, but it's already mentioned in the previous thread. thanks developers!
  25. So I've googled to see how to make curved text/ text following path of shape but it seems like they are either outdated or simply does not work? not sure if it's some kind of glitch or it was changed, just not updated on documents. I've seen tutorial of clicking shape then use text tool on top of it but it didn't work, nor manually selecting it from LAYER to convert shape into path (Convert to Path wasn't under layer tab. I'm assuming that it was outdated tutorial cause that tutorial was made 2 years ago-ish). Thank you.
