  1. How can I add the fill and stroke color inside the tool bar like in this picture?
  2. Our 1.9 updates added support for OpenCL compute acceleration on Windows which is enabled by default. It can be disabled in the app by going to Edit > Preferences > Performance and unticking Enable OpenCL compute acceleration. However, if you're having issues launching the app and you suspect that OpenCL compute acceleration is causing the issue you can manually edit PerformancePreferences.xml in %AppData%\<APPNAME>\1.0\Settings\ You will need to change the following line from: <UseHardwareAcceleration>True</UseHardwareAcceleration> to <UseHardwareAcceleration>False</UseHardwareAcceleration> Please be aware that if you haven't been able to launch the app since updating to 1.9, you will not have this line and will need to add it just before the </Settings> closing tag like so: <UseHardwareAcceleration>False</UseHardwareAcceleration> </Settings> Once you've made these changes, please try and launch the app again. More information about OpenCL compute acceleration can be found here: Hardware acceleration (affinity.help)
  3. I thought I had downloaded the programmes last night, and received an email with Product Keys. However, if I click on the programs which I expected would launch them, I get a message from Windows to download more safely through their Store. This doesn't seem to offer a Free Trial, just an outright purchase. How do I proceed from here, please?
  4. When making a selection on the canvas and bringing my mouse down to the bottom, the document would auto scroll downwards allowing me to make additional selections as and when objects were revealed in view. Alternatively I used to be able to make a selection and use my mouse wheel to scroll the document. Both of the above features in the recent Affinity Designer for Windows update have appeared to stopped working V1.8 (just checked and can confirm this has also stopped working in Affinity Photo, however it worked in previous versions for both Photo & Designer)
  5. Hello Affinity Team, GREAT UPDATE! Request! ( for all the programs , designer, photo, and publisher ) when i downloading content from the account window, I and probably other really need the option to where its downloaded to. My C drive is OS only. I have all my programs and content on D drive. I need the ability to save or move these downloads off my C drive as there is limited space for the OS only. Is there a way now to move them and re add the assests manually? Perhaps a option for downloads later release? Gary
  6. Contour Clone with ALT not working Is there something wrong with THE CONTOUR TOOL? It says holding down ALT will clone it , it doesn't? Thank you Gary
  7. I've been using Affinity Photo more lately and there are a few things I'm still trying to figure out. One thing I use often in Photoshop is the crop to pixels feature, you just make a selection and click the crop tool, the crop tool then automatically snaps to the outer most pixels around the selection then you just apply the crop for a pixel-perfect alignment. I have tried this in Affinity Photo as well as manually cropping and it doesn't seem to be able to do this. In some cases it's easy enough to manually crop, but this is not ideal for anything with semi-opaque pixels or glowing effects where clipping may occur if it is not cropped accurately. Is there a way to do this in Affinity Photo?
  8. Hi, i got a corrupted file while using the patch tool. The file is private, if you can provide a private upload link i can share it with affinity staff only. Used 5 TIF files with perspective filter and masks used a pixel layer atop for final tweaking with patch tool when the beta stumbled. Luccily, a have a stored version before and after the crash. As soon as i swicth from pacth tool to hand/move tool the file ets corrupted.
  9. Can I own Affinity on my windows PC and Mac without having to buy the software on each device? I work on my PC at home and on my Mac when im on the go? Is there anything I can do without having to buy the program(s) twice? Will greatly appreciate any response. Thank you!
  10. Hello everybody. I am not sure if this is a bug coming from Affinity Photo or Windows or if it is even a bug bu here is the deal: I know you can alter the hardness and size of the brush by holding CTRL + ALT + right click and if I perform the shortcut everything works as it should. However, if I want to perform the actions with my pen stylus instead nothing happens. I only get this annoying white ring as seen in the attached picture. My pen (Wacom Pro L) is set to perform right click and it works. Only Affinity Photo seems to not get the right click input from the stylus... Can somebody please help me? It slows down my workflow so much it really gets me angry and frustrated. Is there a way to set the shortcut combination to something different? I tried to find it in the settings but the only thing I can find for brush size ist [ or ] and that does not help me. Thank you in advance for your help! I am really looking forward to it. Best, Gomorrah
  11. I bought affinity photo and designer last week on my iMac and I am very happy with it. I talked to someone else who owns it, and she said she first used it on Apple and when she switched to Microsoft, she could just install the software there. However, when I download try to the software on my Windows laptop, the files are not supported: they are clearly installers for Apple operating systems. So I was wondering, is it possible to get the software for windows as well (or do I need to buy this separately)? Thanks already, Jip
  12. Hello everyone, I cannot launch affinity photo because of the theme I am using. Is this a way to bypass this and launch affinity photo anyway while keeping the theme I am using ? Thank you.
  13. About The Box Set is hundreds of vector and raster brushes made for Affinity Photo & Designer. Each brush was handmade using real materials scanned at high resolutions and crafted to simulate real media. I wanted the origin of the brushes to have a heritage of the materials they are simulating. Scanning pools of watercolor, swatches of paint, and stipples of charcoal contributed to creating brushes with the same idiosyncratic material magic. My only request is that you take these brushes, with their clever names, as suggestions. They work superbly out of the box, but I strongly encourage you to adjust the sliders, rearrange or remove the textures, and discover how they can suit your hand(s). Make. Discover. Repeat. Cheers and happy art making, -Jef (WREN) RASTER BRUSHES For use in Affinity Photo and Designer. The blending brush in the Oil Set is the only one exclusive to Affinity Photo. DRAFTING INK OIL Oil Brush Dynamics Most oil brushes have blending built into pen pressure. With a single brush and hue you can adjust the luminosity of the stroke- giving it an oily blend. The Brush's color in the example above is the color of the background. A normal pressure gives you the hue without any lightening or darkening.

  14. Hello, I am having repeat difficulty rendering panorama's since latest update to 1.7.3.481 Continual repeat crash when rendering panorama's (regardless 50-350photos each) PC Specs: i5, 4670k, 4.1ghz (water cooled, temps under 75 Celcius when 100% cpu) 32gb DDR3 / 1600 (XMP 2400) Raid 0 2x1tb Windows/Program Raid 10 4x4tb (Source folder's) 4tb Spare drive (stand alone) RX590 8gb "fatboy series" AMD Video Card. 3x Benq 24" Displays (1920x1080). Windows 10 Latest updates. All drivers thoroughly up to date. Page file not on Raids, just the spare 4tb. Affinity Photo, i've set for 8, 16, or 24gb's (it uses upwards to 28gb's if I max it of the original ram, before page). Still same issue. Right now I have 4x "pano" source folders, (1,2,3, & 4). All Source files are JPG/ Taken by Samsung S8+ 13mp each I believe. Folder 1: 355 Jpegs, Total 2.19gb Folder 2: 310 Jpegs, Total 1.98gb Folder 3: 276 Jpegs, Total 1.53gb Folder 4: 116 Jpegs, Total 723mb (0.72gb ish) I've tried a catch all at once, toss them all in and see. What is found, then render. I've tried separately to just do folder 4, or 3, etc, smallest first I figured... It can get to the preview part, but when rendering... after a few hours the app fully exits/crashes. I've monitored on Task manager. The drive/memory/cpu and some GPU is used. I'm grasping at straws here. I have done the intel raid check. 0 errors entirely. I've defragged thoroughly. I've trimmed startup apps, scheduled tasks, etc. Literally minimized to maximized performance. I've even set priority of affinity photo to "above normal" I'll happily adjust or customize settings further if any theories help. I recognize panorama's take TIME. I know this thoroughly. I check back every few hours to see progress pro/con. If anyone has suggestions/idea's, hugely appreciated. What else is needed here to proceed/gain support, but proactively in the right direction? - RMLeLoup P.S. Thanks in advance for the thorough read. Edit: Updated version #, Edit 2: How do I get a "crash report" ? If needed, i'll attach, and upload samples if required also. (Have 185/185 fiber/unlim, happy to ts, don't mind)
  15. I bought Affinity Designer for Windows 10 recently, and was wondering if I can use the product key to also use it on my mac. Can I?
  16. For some reason I thought Affinity Designer allowed Plugins but it doesn't. I would like to replace my Fireworks obsession with Affinity Designer. The things I value most in Fireworks are - vectors, as separate objects, can be grouped. (tick) - objects can have effects applied and be editable as vectors (tick) - effects can be extended using plugins, even photoshop plugins, allowing for editable vectors to display with torn paper effect and change the torn paper settings as needed. (fail, no plugins, no plugins as layer effects) Affinity Photo also does not extend the layer/live effects by allowing 3rd party photoshop filters as far as I can tell either. I can't even get it to use any plugins from Photoshop 5.5, 8 or CC 2015 but that might be my own bug.
  17. We are pleased to announce an update for the Windows release of Affinity Designer, version 1.8.5 Changes in this Build The changes in Affinity Designer for Windows 1.8.5 (over the last release Affinity Designer for Windows 1.8.4) are as follows: Fixes & Improvements: Fixed many tablet input problems (by reverting the default input method to be Low Precision mode, the same as in 1.8.3). Added tablet input preference (in Tools section) to opt-in to High Precision mode, or Windows Ink mode (NOTE: previous command line options --legacy-wintab and --disable-wintab are now ignored). Fixed cursor disappearing following keyboard shortcuts that display dialogs, while using a brush tool. Earlier changes and fixes in 1.8 since 1.7 (including the new 1.8 features) are listed in some detail in the 1.8.0 , 1.8.2 and 1.8.3 update announcements. UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (free for existing customers) The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in Help > About Affinity Designer). If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store— each time you start the Affinity Store software it will check for updates and offer any available update. The latest update will install over the top of any earlier version, with no need to uninstall. You can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "Download" button in there. Alternatively, this new release (and previous versions of Affinity Designer for Windows) can be downloaded from this link (that installer is NOT for Windows Store purchases and needs a product key). If you’ve purchased from the Microsoft Store— Microsoft Store updates are done automatically by the operating system (each time you start the application). If this does not happen for you, open the Windows Store app and click the three dots in the top right corner of the app and then go to Downloads and Updates. Click Get Updates. This should hopefully force the update to show.
  18. I'm new to this software and still trialing but falling at first hurdle. When I am adding an image to a letter it shows correctly until I print - then it misaligns. Can someone help me please? I've attached image to show my issues. Thanks
  19. I'm a new user for Affinity Photo. I've bought it today and started using it. My problem is that I can't find the text tool on the left bar along side with the brush and other tools. I found all the text editing dialogue but I can't type to begin with.
  20. Hello, I am facing a peculiar issue. I have two windows laptops on which Affinity photo is installed. But only on one of them I get this error when exporting an image after finishing the edit - If I turn the embed metadata option off, then it works. However, on the other laptop there is no such issue. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling affinity photo on the machine, but the issue persists. Incidentally, the machine with this issue is the faster of the two. How can I resolve this? Thanks in advance.
  21. i saved my project in Affinjity Photo own format. when i open single layer project where i place photo top it in this drawing what i have this single layer goes top of picture even normal layer mode. earlier is fully replaced things what are bottom of layer stack. of course i can put photo back of this layer when looks what i expect. or i forgotted how i used them. actually photos (when i added jpeg to of png) work way what i expect. this affinity fle thing is actually useful doing one thing if use such document in guidelines (they are not part end project) of whole project. they show then top of all elements. oddness is these cases work different way and this affinity documnet way is better actually this what i try do.
  22. Today I got strange behavior in operation version 1.8.0.703 after windows update this morning. After removing the white paper from a developed ARW file I try to remove the background with the background remove tool and mouse, both strike to work in normale mode. The XPPen work alone with 1 pixel or total not. The same with the mouse. I have trye the leatest beta and there its working sofar normally. The pen is working like I wanted. Some more have this problem?
  23. Publisher is great. Started Freezing often. I lost much time in-between my frequent CTRL+S for frequent file saves/restart/freeze cycles. Found many other people posting about freeze and crash items. Noticed several that mentioned connections to fonts. Too many fonts installed, freeze during font selection, etc. ) So I looked for a font I had recently installed and was sprinkled throughout my text. PWSERIFSCRATCH. I removed this font from my text. And still crashes/freeze continued....Ooops, missed two spots. Once all instances of this font were removed from the text box I was working on that spread through 10 pages, the freezing stopped. All is good now. I still reflexively hit CTRL+S every few seconds, but so far it has been working fine. Some thoughts....On a good day, Publisher uses 2GB of memory. Not even Chrome uses this much memory. When it crashes, it seems to be over 2.6GB of memory. Perhaps the font control is working overtime and runs up the memory until my Win10 Microsoft Surface i7-7660 2.5GHz with 8.00GB Memory. Can Publisher be engineered to use less memory?
  24. How make brtush works like daub spatula? grabs partly its colour from what i allready have. i want do my own brushes sometimes work same way even Designer i think paint mixer brush does in Photo. they have in affinity designer symbol what i post here. these premade brushes work this way but i can set any brush work this way. i checked manual no luck and i cannot add this tool to tool bar. really wanted use affinity designer for art. transfering files to program x to program y is silly. and missing such tool funny when designer is made for more art and photo more modifing and correcting photos. i post feature request if this dont found somewhere where i dont know.
