  1. Hi Affinity Designer Users ! I redesign a logo for one of our customers and need some help. I have to subtract the red area from the blue... as I subtract it, Affinity Designer just subtract "HWABEN", but "SC" stays blue and is not subtracted. What can I do ? I really need help ! Thanks in advance. Best regards Lucas
  2. So I'm using a school Mac laptop for Affinity Pro, and the screen is small so a few of the tools won't show up on the left hand side, including the one that I need to use right now which is text. All of the other bars on the screen can scroll, the picture, the tools on the right side, but the tools on the left hand side won't scroll. I can't drag it down any further and it's actually starting to piss me off. Any help from someone would be really appreciated, thanks.
  3. Working 8 hours a day on Designer for making illustrations last weeks, I noticed a thing I run into a lot of times which is disturbing the workflow a bit and seems easy to fix. I've setup Designer and Photo to have a 2-column toolspanel (look at attachment). That way I'm having the fill- and border-color-circles visible inside the toolbar at all times to quickly change colors, like I was used to in Adobe software. So I click on a fill- or border-circle to bring it to the actual color selection or doubleclick on it to change its color. Very handy and used a lot. But if I work f
  4. As in topic Ability to drag new guide with any tool selected. Now it only works with select tool (black arrow). Best Regards!
  5. Hello, Sry, i agree i'm a bit LAZY and not go thru thoroughly through the ocean of the forum, but still searching in a zippy i didn't found my answers, hence writing this ticket. 1. if Team-A wanna fix some error in their Adobe creation by forwarding the project to Team-B with all legal acceptance (via their Affinity product), do team-B need to start over from "Zero" as no support for Adobe's working file extensions? 2. Any Error Fixing/Analysing tools to compete with Adobe's PREFLIGHT, COMPARE(Check out 4th compare tool of Power Styles from Blatner for eg.), Etc. 3. Any Su
  6. The Pathfinder equivalent tool found in Affinity Designer needs some work. I tend to create logos by overlapping shapes, using the divide tool, deleting the excess then recombining them to get rid of the lines. This works perfectly in Illustrator, however when trying the same method in Affinity Designer, I'm left with stray points and lines, it's essentially just combining the shapes like a group instead of merging. The space in between is to minuscule to be shifted manually. I don't know if it has something to do with you 1,000,000x Zoom, but the tool should somehow be reworked to allo
  7. I'm on macOS High Sierra 10.13.1. I have an early 2013 15-inch Retina Macbook Pro connected to a Intuos Pro small tablet. I use the brush tool in Affinity Designer to doodle simple drawings for animated videos. I've seen serious lag in the Brush tool performance since upgrading to the 1.6.0 version. I pick up the brush tool, try to draw something with my Wacom pen and there is a 1-2 second lag before the brush hits the screen. This sounds like a small thing but when you're drawing 100-200 images for a video, it quickly becomes very annoying. Basically,
  8. Some of my selection tools are not working. I have relaunched the Affinity Photo software, I have rebooted my laptop, MANY times - but some of the selection tools will work. If I activate (for example) the selection Brush tool, it APPEARS to be working - i.e. the mouse turns into the round selection brush but when I click / drag, nothing is selected. The same thing happens if I try to use the rectangular or spherical selection tool - it looks like it SHOULD work, but when I click and drag - nothing happens - the selection pen tool does work, but is not always the best option. I thought it mig
  9. One of my biggest pet peeves about Affinity Designer is that I am always trying to move text around, and I hit the shortcut for the move tool [V] and all of my text is replaced by a "v". I get it, that's a letter.... but sometimes I'm not even double-clicked on the text. Am I missing a super helpful shortcut that already exists? Cheers. -Smity

  11. When attempting to add another layer of text the HSL Color Wheel will not select a new colour other than black . Tools do not activate. Am trying to activate any tool, none are working. Cannot understand which action caused the issue. Especially need to use Artistic Text Tool, mode is chosen for Pixel and the photo image layer is rasterised. Complete mystery as I cannot find any prior conversation that discusses this problem.
  12. Clone tool, crop tool. color finder & perhaps others not working properly on new Dell 5770 laptop with 8th gen. i7 processor. Have erased and re-installed Affinity to no avail. Have cropped and saved image then reselected cropped image ctrlC and ctrl V to new document and original un-cropped image appears, from where I don't know, opening as flattend image solves problem. When selected clone area is used the marker for selected area jumps to entirely different position on image or disappears completely. Color selector on paint brus tools simply doesn't work.
  13. If me using CorelDraw, coloring Object is very easy use smart Fill or Live paint bucket in Illustrator. in Affinity Designe takes a lot of time for coloring NEED CLOSING NODE, i am work with Pen tool mode Line.
  14. I am currently using version 1.6.5.61 on my iPad I make a selection using the Sampled Colour Tool then tick the box at the bottom. I then go to the Polygon Marquee Tool (on subtract) to cut out any unwanted selections. On the first pass t subtracts perfectly. However, if I have missed something and go back it does not seem to want to subtract any more. Please advise - thanks
  15. Hello, tools remain on top of the Finder window when opening a file (no issue when saving.. then it remain in the back as it should). Thanks
  16. Hello, Thanks to the team for this great tool that is Affinity designer ! This feature ( request ? ) could somehow be understood as the equivalent of brushes in Affnity Photo... The triangle tool and others ( Trapezoïd / Diamond etc...) are neat and really practical ! is there a possibility ( or any plans in the future ) to have an acces to build / add / customize other tools by myself and to add them to the UI? o- suppose i want to create a "logic gate diagram", i would have to use AND, OR, XOR ( and others ) gate symbols. - i could create a tool for each symbol - add
  17. When selecting View, Customise Tools, there are only 6 tools available for selection to add to the tool bar: View, Zoom, Red Eye Removal, Blemish Removal, Overlay paint, Overlay Erase, Overlay Gradient, Crop, White Balance. For example the Clone tool is not available to add to the left tool bar. Running version 1.6.6 on High Sierra 10.13.2
  18. Hello, would it be possible to limit input from tools, specifically the brush tool, to only stylus input? That was we could freely place our hands on the screen, pan, zoom, etc. without the fear of making marks. As it is now, whenever I'm drawing or paining, I have to go back and cleanup marks made by my hand. Thanks!
  19. Hi, As a long time Adobe Flash user, I'm used to make quick selections and modifications on vector shapes just by selecting a portion with the default cursor (see image). Also in Adobe Flash not every shape is automatically placed in its own seperate layer, instead shapes are automatically added to existing layer or shape. Vector shapes are rather added or withdrawn depending on their color, shapes of the same color are merged into one, while shapes of different colors are divided. I know this way of editing is not for everyone but I would very much like to have the option in Affin

  21. I often use the color picker to touch up my coloring and once I click on the Paint Brush, the color always switches to the other color... (the two circles under the Color tab) Having to constantly switch back to the color I just picked is obviously annoying and I don't understand why this happens. If I just picked a color I obviously want to use the one I just picked, not the one I had to use 5 minutes ago... How can I fix this?
  22. Hello! New user here. I've combed the internet and the preferences and I can't seem to find anything that stops me from drawing lines all over my document with my fingers! I saw something about a "Touch for Gestures Only" option in the tools pane, but I dont see it on mine. Using Win10 on a Surfacebook with the latest version of Affinity Photo. Thanks! Edit: I am aware of the "Disable touch input when pen is in use" Windows option, but that's not stopping me from making marks when I go to zoom and pan with fingers!
  23. Am I right when you dock tools to the left access strip in Affinity Photo these are a destructive action,as they do not nest under the current photo selected.They seem to react different from those you select from the layer panel.If so what is the point of this option,is to speed up the editing process.
  24. Hi there, I am using windows 10 with the latest version of affinity photo (bought it yesterday). I am trying to make a selection of the image I have attached, fences on a white background. This should be fairly easy to select...I just can't seem to select it properly. I have checked and the layer is pixel and I have selected it. But when I use the selection brush tool it goes here there and everywhere. It is as though it cannot differentiate between the very contrasted background and fence? There are no other layers in the project at this time either. Not sure if this is just a lit
  25. Hi guys, new to the forum and not sure if this is the right place to post or if there's another post like this. I've looked but couldn't find it. At the moment there's a shortcut to select a color off a layer but it feels very odd from a user's perspective. I see the color change in the color slider/wheel when I select a color but it doesn't automatically apply. I'm not sure if I am missing something here, but when you use the eyedropper tool in Illustrator, you select the layer you want to change the color, use the eyedropper tool and select something else and it automatically changes it to
