    Hello, below the desert in the vector edition
  3. Hi, I have an SVG file with paths on many layers. In some cases the layer paths overlap. I want to remove the overlapping areas. Here is a simple example: In layer A I have a large red circle. In layer B I have a small blue circle. Both circles are centred at the same point. In layer A I would like to remove the area which is covered by the blue circle in layer B, so that there is only one colour per layer. The result would be a red doughnut shape in layer A, and the unchanged small blue circle in layer B, which would fit exactly into the hole in layer A's doughnut. It's a bit like a screen print, one layer per colour, but with no overlap of the coloured areas. To achieve this I tried to copy the paths from layer B to layer A, so that I could remove the centre of layer A's circle (it's actually a very complex path, not a circle). This doesn't seem to be possible. Can anyone advise how to do this? Thanks.
  4. When I use in my vector illustration gradient e trasparenze layer , after export eps file , the layers where I used gradient colors , becoming pixel layers !!!!!! Why ?????
  5. I’m looking for a way to add new points in a curve by snapping to other points/objects on the iPad. In this case there are two curves with the endpoints snapped on the red stroke; I need to put two points on that curve exactly over the two endpoints, so then I could split the line into three pieces. On desktop this should be quite easy since you can move the cursor first, snap it and then put the point. Of course I want to preserve the current curvature of the stroke, so adding a point and then moving it to its destinations it’s not the right solution.
  6. Being new to affinity designer, I couldn't make the decision on how to fill only parts of this vector. I'd like it to stay a vector instead of rasterizing it for paint mode, some im curious on how I can select only parts of the inside of vector id like to fill, as it is black and white and I would like to keep the middle parts of this rose transparent, well I fill the outline around it. Thank you, N0hva
  7. Hi, I have a set of plotting machines; that works with Adobe Illustrator. My projects stays around vector lines mostly. I want to know if Affinity Designer will work with GRAPHTEC PLOTTING MACHINE before I make final purchase. If not, are there hopes of getting this done? Best regards David-Abi
  8. I know there are many people wanting auto trace added to Affinity Designer. I'm one of them. What I don't understand is that Serif had a decent auto trace feature in DrawPlus x8 which I hop over to regularly in order to convert my designs to vectors. This isn't an ideal solution and only a temporary one. My question is why can't the programmers add that feature from their DrawPlus x8 prog to Affinity Designer? In my eyes it would complete the capabilities of Affinity Designer program. It seems ridiculous to have to go to 3rd party tracing options. Why make our lives difficult when it can all be programmed into the one piece of software.
  9. Greetings! Im a new bird to the whole picture editing black magic, so don't destroy me if something is too obvious. I'm a part of a small rugby team here in germany and because I'm curently unactive because of my injury i decided to help my team out by doing some PR and Comercial stuff. Now i got a task of converting an PNG and PDF image in to a vector based data so we can make our youngsters some new jerseys ,and i got stuck. Who would have thought the images are not of great quality. I already tryed it by marking the letters and, not with very much sucsess, croping them out but i always seem to get lost in the comands. Me and my team would be very gratefull if some of You could help us climb this stormy mountain.
  10. I downloaded and used the trial right when the product was announced, but I found it missing a lot of the essential tools I use for designing. I do however revisit the website and this forum from time to time and its very refreshing to see a software developer being so open with its features roadmap and in its interaction with its users. Long may it continue. And being as I am in the same city as Serif I have a vested interest in seeing that they succeed in this market. I will unfortunately not be converting from CorelDraw any time soon until Designer gets a Clone tool for vector objects. This is a fundamental to my workflow, the ability to create mirrored symmetrical shapes and only have to edit the master shape for the clones to automatically update. CorelDraw does this very well indeed, it could be better as its not been updated for 15years, but it does work. The other thing I would need is an ability to trace a bitmap (or indeed a vector trace tool to create filled holes from areas bounded by curves) though I do note this is on the roadmap. Import filters would be great too. I have thousands of lineart drawings in .cdr format that i'd love the ability to import, but I guess I can get round that with intermediate formats like pdf or eps.

  11. I downloaded few icons from materialdesignicons and flaticon, and they wont react to any recoloring actions, i.e. - eyedropper, applying swatch color, gradient tool etc I usually download icons from the web and in Figma it displayed as vector shape within a group, which i need to either ungroup or flatten in order to apply fills and strokes properly. Yet in Designer it's displayed as a vector shape with a bit extended boundaries, and the "ungroup" command isn't working with these icons and there is no such thing as "flatten" command. What should i do?
  12. Just had the same error three times in a row. I have a JPEG in Designer. I select the pen tool and start tracing around the JPEG. After six or seven inputs (working on the JPEG layer), I left click and hold on a node to adjust the curve. Program crashes. I've just reloaded, rasterised the JPEG and created a new layer to start with using the pen tool on. This seems to have stopped the crashing.
  13. Hi Team, I am having an issue with merging vectors. I am trying to create a grunge layer wich only consists of one big vector. The problem is: While merging the small vectors together, at a certain point the merging process doesn't come to an end. Affinity cannot be used any more at that point. I have to hard quit. Maybe there are too many dots for Affinity Designer. Is there a solution for that? Thanks Tim
  14. Using iPad Pro 12.9 2nd generation running iOS 11.0 and Affinity Photo 1.6.5 Text, shapes and vectors are rendered in very low quality while working on the document. This, of course, does not happen in the desktop version (Photo or Designer). This is a huge disruption as it is a mayor distraction while working; what you are trying to accomplish is not being presented faithfully on screen. When the document is exported it’s apparently rendered appropriately, yet I can’t see this while working? I’m EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED and you have now idea how much I regret buying this software, and I’m seeing pages upon pages of other bugs being reported :-( Wasn’t this supposed to be desktop quality software for a pro tablet? Attatchments: first photo shows working environment, second photo shows exported file.
  15. Hello, So far I have created some 3 or 4 step by step guided tuts on simple illustrations in Affinity Designer as requested and promised. Will be uploading more regularly as my schedule allows me. Anyone interested, check my youtube channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/sauldrumandbass Hope you find something interesting in them, Kiss, Isabel

    Designer + Photo = Love

    I started by using Designer to build the vector shapes of the hat, and filled the shapes with gradients. In Pixel persona I used texturizing brushes (from Frankentoon) for tinting and shading. Some additional lines, smooting and adding noise was done in AP as well as lighting. The seamless integration between the two programs makes me just love them...
  17. I have a stock photo account with Adobe and buy .ai files every once in a while. I've opened .ai files in Designer before and not had any problems, but I opened a file just now and the image is not only completely rasterized but looks nothing like the original picture. Rather than crisp outlines, it's basically a blob. I have checked the view settings and it's in vector view mode. Any advice?

    Free Vector Pages

    Affinity Forums Hello friends, greetings from Honduras, now will share a link to download vectors and more. link: http://es.all-free-download.com The site is ideal for use with Affinitty Designer. greetings To You
  19. Hi, In Designer I'd love to see a key command to hide the geometry (nodes and Bézier curves/lines) of the selected object, and just show the printable art. Without deselecting. I used this all the time with The Competition. Pressing Spacebar is ok for a quick look, but when you're experimenting with effects or different brushes/strokes/gradients, the curves & nodes are just distracting. Thanks! - pbass
  20. I'm making a business card in Affinity Designer to be uploaded to and printed by Moo.com. They request designs with text be saved in the PDF/X-1a format (converting text to curves). However, whenever and however I export from Designer text gets rasterised and exhibits edge-pixelation. I've tried every combination of export settings I can come up with (two days I've been trying to do this) but everything gets rasterised on export whatever I do. Why can't the PDF's I export handle vectors? One side of my business card attached (in .afdesign format) LF-Business-Card-BACK.afdesign
  21. Hello everyone, I just found the Affinity Designer software, and I thought of giving it a shot. Very nice and fast. I am currently using Adobe Illustrator software to produce scientific figures from mass spectrometry data. The way I am doing it is importing the mass spectrometry spectra through a scientific software, pasting the spectra (vector) to an new illustrator page. Then I am adjusting the figure according to my needs. An example of this file is attached (as pasted from the scientific software). However, I have noticed that importing the Illustrator file to the Affinity Designer software there are some issues: 1. All lines of the spectrum as well as the axes of the figure cannot be seen. I have to select each part of the spectrum (some not easy cause I have to find exactly the line) and axes (basically everything) and adjust the stroke to a colour and of certain stroke in order to see the spectrum. Otherwise, I can only see the text. 2. The imported text is not imported correctly. In Illustrator it appears (but easily fixed) to be a gap between each character number. However, when clicking on the kerning (no matter when I select, auto or optical) the text corrects to normal. When I import the same file in the Affinity Designer, there is a space (as an extra character) between each number character, which requires to remove it manually. Would it possible to fix the above? Many thanks. A. Untitled-1.ai
  22. My girlfriend took a picture of me and I created a vector-based portrait from it. It looks simple but it wasn't for me. I'm still getting used to vectors.
