  1. Hiya, I'm about to purchase both Affinity photo and designer as I've been very impressed with their performance in the free trial. I'm also considering purchasing a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet and want to know if Wacom support Affinity applications? I'm using an iMac. many thanks Pete
  2. Hi everyone! Perhaps it's just me, but I can't get wacom's grip pen tilt sensor to work with the brushes. I was trying with the DAUB markers (the one with the "vertical" shape). I can get pressure sensitivity, but no tilt for changing the shape rotation ... Is this possible? Thanks.
  3. I have found that the Photo colour picker when clicked on with a Wacom Intuos 3 pen with latest driver selects a new colour alright but switches to black as soon as the pen is returned to the canvas. If the colour picker is removed from its dock and placed elsewhere on the screen or on a second monitor it works as expected. The pen is also rather laggy compared with using a mouse or Magic Trackpad. I've tried adjusting the Wacom preferences but has made no difference. Not a huge problem but I guess one that could be fixed. Great App otherwise.
  4. Hi, Does anyone know if Affinity will have the support for the Wacom Bamboo Sketch stylus on the ipad in the near future? I'm currently using the apple pencil but it feels like I'm scratching on wood with it. There's only a handful of apps that support the Bamboo Sketch I was hoping Affinity would soon have the support as well. Or am I barking up the wrong tree, is it Wacom I should be approaching for this?
  5. Hi, I recently installed Photo on Windows 10 and I can't use it successfully with my Wacom Touch 5. I have the latest stable drivers (6.3.20-5). I keep getting exceptions that cause the application to crash. The steps to reproduce are: 1. Open a new document (Web, FHD 1080p preset) 2. Select the Paint Brush Tool 3. Paint a bit with the tablet 4. Select another window outside of Photo 5. Select Photo again 6. Start painting The result is an Unhandled Exception message box with Code: 0x80131516; I've attached a screenshot below. I can trigger a similar exception in Designer by following the same repro steps (albeit using different new document settings and the Pencil tool). In the Designer case, the exception is not handled, so I can bring up a debugger. When I do so, I get the following exception details: System.OverflowException was unhandled Message: An unhandled exception of type 'System.OverflowException' occurred in Serif.Affinity.dll Additional information: Arithmetic operation resulted in an overflow. It appears that it's occurring in the following method: Serif.Affinity.dll!Serif.Affinity.Application.HandlePointerInput I'm not sure if that's helpful or if these exceptions are even related between the two applications, but I thought I'd include these details, just in case. Thanks! Edit: fix typo
  6. Hi. Is there any timescale yet for when the jagged brush stroke issue will be fixed for Wacom cintiq companion users? I first reported this when the beta build was out and I just tried the latest wacom drivers with latest Affinity photo to find the problem still persists. This is not slight wobble from an unsteady hand it is the jagged pixelated jumpy brush stroke that only occurs in affinity photo and photoshop elements for me. All other software works fine with the cintiq companion. Without some kind of brush stabilisation the software is unusable to me as a photoshop replacement for painting and inking. Thanks. previous posts - https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/27924-disappointing-experiences-with-brush-tool/ https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/27428-jagged-brush/ top affinity, bottom photoshop cc. I reduced spacing as much as possible and reduced hardness. Also when my cursor hovers over an area the strokes appear to vibrate almost like marching ants, hard on the eyes.
  7. Hi Guys Simple question I guess, will a Wacom stylus work with Affinity Photo on the iPad Air 2? I don't use the iPad very much as I am mainly a web designer but I do own one and a Wacom pen and I would like to buy the software but obviously only if it works with the set up I have. If the pen works at even a basic level then thats fine, I just can't see myself masking pictures with my fingers. I can't warrant buying a iPad Pro as I only use it occasionally to test websites and other bits but I'd like to support this software if I can at least have a play with it with what I have. Thanks in advance for your help. Cheers Gary
  8. I think its been motioned before but please add in the ability to use the rotate command in the cintqe touch Wacom to allow for canvas rotation and zoom!!!! Also the ability to map canvas rotate to the touch ring on a standard Wacom!!!
  9. Hi, When you select multiple layers in the layer manager, to move them up or down, these layers don't appear visually selected, it seems as you're not going to move the layers, but when released they've really changed his position... it's a pretty uncomfortable bug. I have this problem working with Wacom Intuos 4, in 2 different computers, an iMac running Mavericks and another one with Yosemite.
  10. I am looking to upgrade a really really old Wacom Graphire 2 tablet, but I would like a tablet that would allow me to have the most functionality and options in the brush settings. In other words I want all the whistles--tilt, rotation support, if possible!

    Having issues with the brushes and my intuos wacom tablet. the curves come out choppy, and the flow of the brush on screen its weird. don't want to compare but I've tried other softwares for drawing and the tablet works fine.
  12. I ordered a slightly used Wacom Intuos5 touch Small Tablet with pen, cable and wireless kit for $140 from a graduating Arts student. Does it sound like a good buy? Being a lefty I noticed Wacom's tablets can be flipped around and software switched. I know Huion has handedness settings but I still don't fancy rotating the tablet and have the labels upside down. My only concern is whether it will lag on wireless with AD or APh? I recall reading somewhere that USB cable is preferred. Can you advise me. Have Affinity staff got inhouse experience with this model (PTH-451) Thanks Michael
  13. This is a bit hard to explain but I'll try: 1. Go to Pixel Persona 2. Select the Paint Brush Tool 3. Draw a line using the mouse, works as expected 4. Take your Wacom stylus and draw a line with it, works as expected 5. Grab the mouse again and try to draw a line, it won't draw anything anymore You can still do "spot drawing" with the mouse, that is single click in any spot, and have just a single bit of brush drawn. Hopefully my instructions were clear and the bug is easy to reproduce. Thanks!
  14. Hello, Clicking toolbar and menu buttons does not work with Wacom tablet stylus. I use Wacom Intuos Touch M with latest drivers on Windows 7. I can still draw using the pen with Pen/Pencil tools. Menu items got hovered, but not clicked. Touching works thought. Disclaimer, I'm new both to vector graphics and tablets. I suspect there could be a setting to enable it, but I failed to find it. Regards, Roman
  15. For Affinity Photo (maybe also on Designer) i use Photo with a Wacom tablet. My Problem ist: i have no Crosshair when i use "Paint Brush" ("Always show Brush Crosshair" is ON). I only see the Contour (without the a CrossHair in it) but this is not exactly enough for me. Sometimes i have the WindowsCursor instead the Brushoutline.... Can you fix this, because this is a "no go" for me i must return to evil Ph*** ;-) Thanks ps. by the way now, when i start a new Document i have the Crosshair! (when i use Paint Brush) In the Moment i open an old Document the Crosshair disapeard an the outline is there ... or sometimes the Cursor from Windows!!
  16. Hi, I am using affinity photo on windows and occasionally use pen input. I would appreciate the option to only draw with the pen, not by accidentally touching the screen with a single finger (or by palm rejection not working at that particular moment, or by simply forgetting what happens when you use a finger while drawing with a pen). If that option is enabled (maybe only when a brush is actually the current tool), a little button next to the pressure sensitivity button could enable/disable that behavior. And then, maybe finger input could automatically be something else, like moving and selecting objects. Best
  17. Hello I would like to use the brush tool with pressure sensitivity that change only the flow of the brush, not the size. However, when i try to modify the jitter settings of the brush by disabling the size pressure jitter and enabling flow pressure jitter, the behavior of the brush does not change. When putting more pressure on the stylus, it still increases the size of the brush. I have tried in Affinity Designer Vector + Pixel modes, and in Photo, and they act exactly the same. I am on Win10x64 with Wacom Intuos Pen & Touch M.
  18. Pressure sensitivity is not working for me in Affinity Designer. It is working in other apps (tablet properties and Xara Designer demonstrated). Clean install of Windows 7 x64 Affinity Designer 1.5.36 Retail Wacom Graphire ET-0405-U USB Driver pro620-w5 (the last official driver to support the original Graphire tablet). "Pressure" is selected both within the brush and as the controller on the context toolbar
  19. I got Affinity Designer at Christmas last month, and at first just played around to understand the program but I am now starting to do projects. With my small wacom tablet, I drew the two characters who are from the popular video game Overwatch. The robotic looking one is known as Zenyatta, a robot monk. The other is Reaper, a man who died then revived. The 3rd has nothing to do with Overwatch. Just some random thing I felt like making. Supposed to a underwater creature. Hope you like my work :) please keep in mind I just started.
  20. I know graphics tablets questions have been asked a heap of times but looking at buying one for a project I have coming in February so need to know I'm getting kit that works first time. So my question is this: Will budget graphics display tablets such as XP-Pen 10 or Parblo Coast10 work and play well with Affinity software, or are they a disaster? Ive heard drivers can be tricky. I would like the Wacom Cintig 13HD but £600 is a lot of money to pay out in a very skint January.

    Wacom pen&touch

    Hi everyone. Just wondering if anyone would be able to help me. I just bought affinity designer software, and my pen doesn't work. Working with every programme I have but not with this one. Any help? Thanks
  23. Sorry but this is important to me. I know this feature has been requested before. But I have a reason to repeat this: I love Affinity Designer. Except for its lack of brush smoothing that drives me crazy. Meaning: when drawing w/ a Wacom tablet, the strokes are all wiggly and wobbly. Can we fix this? I'm willing to do whatever it takes, so that people around the world using your product can have this feature. Hire me for $10/month to do this. Autodesk Graphic (formerly iDraw) has it. Illustrator has it. Functioning brush tool is quite basic feature of a vector drawing program. I know you have priorities. I know you can't do everything at once. I know you have an existing feature roadmap. But this feature has been requested time after time, starting from 2014. Please get it done. Again, if I need to work on it for free or for a coffee, I'm ready to do it. Let's get this done. I'm 100% serious. Contact me anytime, and I'll jump working on this on a 24 hours notice. You have help. You have demand for this feature – guys, it's time. Let's get this feature on Affinity Designer. Waiting for your reply.

    New Intuos and Intuos Pro

    As some of you might know, there are new Wacom products since very recently: Mainly, the new "cintiq pro" in the new sizes (cleverly adding 16 inches) as well as -probably same tablet technology, Studio pro also in 13 and 16 inches. All these seem to share a very much improved pen technology, probably improvements in the tablet, too. Does any one know if they are going to be releasing soon the tablets ( the Intuos and Intuos Pro series, I mean) that apply all this tracking, accuracy !, pressure (I mean...8k pressure levels... noooone is goona ever notice/use it, but hey) and painting improvements ?... I was able to find a pic.... ....and someone mentioning have seen it listed for a moment on Amazon (pic supposedly downloaded from there. Yet though, fakes are everywhere. I mean, not in Amazon, just the whole story might be invented, people get fun making those. I saw recently one done even in video by a CGI 3D artist (very well done) . So, this could be just a fake.) That said, it'd be more than logical that they'd apply soon all that accuracy at least to Intuos Pro models. I'm progressively realizing more that the cintiq or cintiq alternatives are not so much for me, not only for the purchase price and the cost of replacing if you break it (which worries me way more than initial prices, specially if get too used to cintiq style), also because of my long habit drawing in intuos, and almost very certain that drawing over a cintiq would be way worse for my back and my eyesight (specially as, opposite to Cintiq, the alternatives are ALL *very* glossy screens, not only bad for the eyes, also leads to inaccuracy when painting and checking colors. I fail to understand why even a cheap -ain't cheap, is 600 bucks, yeah , way cheaper than cintiq, but still quite some money.- product for art making is having a glossy screen (and to be honest, we should mention this stupidity for art tools is also present in the iPad PROs (which is quite a sad fact for me, as I love that ipad.) , or the new MS Studio, which also comes with the jitter problem ! A pity, as is a sort of mid-high end monitor.). As indeed, not so much about money with the cintiq alternatives, and intuos Large is not specially cheap, is just that in the end seems better for some of us, despite being less accurate and fast than a tablet-monitor. So, am quite interested in knowing if the medium and large models are soon to be released, using these new technology improvements.
  25. I have an intuos 3 WACOM tablet. I can use the pen to start creating a new file, but as soon as that is done the product crashes. Here is the text of the exception... System.OverflowException was unhandled HResult=-2146233066 Message=Arithmetic operation resulted in an overflow. Source=Serif.Affinity StackTrace: at Serif.Affinity.Application.HandlePointerInput(MSG msg) at Serif.Affinity.Application.ComponentDispatcher_ThreadFilterMessage(MSG& msg, Boolean& handled) at System.Windows.Interop.ComponentDispatcherThread.RaiseThreadMessage(MSG& msg) at System.Windows.Threading.Dispatcher.PushFrameImpl(DispatcherFrame frame) at System.Windows.Application.RunDispatcher(Object ignore) at System.Windows.Application.RunInternal(Window window) at Designer.Application.Main(String[] args) InnerException: That should be pretty easy to track down, I would think. I use a laptop, and if I start Designer and just use the glide pad on the laptop I have no problems, so its just the tablet. But until this is fixed, my 60 bucks is money down the drain folks - I can't do graphic design with a glide pad, not really. Joy Allen
