  1. I bought Affinity Designer as it suggested that I could edit EPS files. I am trialling the program as an option to illustrator, but it appears EPS or AI files cannot be imported correctly, all have gaps between the vectors. Regards JTEE
  2. I'm a new user to Designer 1.8.3.641 and I have many .ai and EPS documents that have multiple layers and sub-layers. When I open any of these documents in Designer, the sub-layers are missing on both the layers panel and of course in the workspace screen. Am I doing something wrong here? The original doc's are AI CS2 files and some exported to .eps files.
  3. Hey guys, There is actually only one thing missing for me in AD. But thats a big one, especially as it speed up my process immensly since it was introduced in AI. I'm talking about the notorious Shape builder tool. Of course you could make something else, that increases the speed of boolean operations. :-) (idk, shortcuts maybe?) Thank you in advance, Felix
  4. This feature is unparalleled and extremely powerful. redefines vector coloring. Affinity should do everything in its power to support this feature. @TonyB Learn more: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/gradients.html#create_apply_freeform_gradient
  5. I wanted to make absolutely sure before purchasing brush sets off of Creative Market... Affinity Designer can import .ai files correct? Are there any special considerations I need to consider? For example, this following brush set: https://creativemarket.com/Guerillacraft/100638-Scatter-texture-brushes-for-AI Would I encounter any problems in AD? I see on the https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/designer/full-feature-list/ that AI is included in importable file extensions but it says "Adobe® Illustrator® AI (containing PDF stream)" Not sure what the last bit means (PDF stream..?) I just wanna buy some cool brush sets on Creative Market! lol :P
  6. Hallo affinity team, I still have a question about the Brushes: so far I have been working in Illustrator, and use the program for design drawings of bags and textiles. It is very helpful that with per brush I was able to create different zipper variants and chains as brushes, which are then available as vectorbrush. Hence my question: how can I import them into Affinity design or create them there? I send you a screenshot of the panel I usually use to create them there.
  7. Hi, It will be a bit long, since I have to touch other, very closely related issues as well. Rhino to Affinity Designer: So I'm a bit lost, at first a seemingly easy excercise: how do I get linework from Rhino/RhinoWIP to Affinity Designer without using a 3rd software? The exported .ai/.eps files won't be read, and .dwg is still out of league. Relevant McNeel Discourse threads: https://discourse.mcneel.com/t/what-export-option-to-use-to-get-rhino-into-affinity-designer/38872/6 https://discourse.mcneel.com/t/exporting-in-eps-ai-format/37015/8 https://discourse.mcneel.com/t/reading-exported-ai-files-in-vector-editors-other-than-illustrator/18092 I've tried the vector PDF as described, but it is extremely messy, not usable. I have no idea, why the curves are joined into one curve: I have to explode them, then I tried joining them like described here, but no success, they remain detached. Here are my questions: Can we expect extended .ai or .eps compatibility, or even better, support for .dwg files? In the meantime, what do you suggest to send linework from Rhino to Designer? Two very closely related topics: 1. DWG/DXF exchange between CAD software and Affinity Designer This is a thread asking for DWG/DXF support, which if I recall, did not happen since then: Please consider increasing attention on this matter, as the latest official reply was from @MEB, over 2,5 years ago. This is a very important feature for many designers (myself is an architect), since most of the time our drawings are not generated in Designer/Illustrator. There are flexible 2D editing and publishing tools (e.g. ARCHICAD), that handle technical drawings quite nice, but not textured drawings, so a more tailored, flexible tool is in dire need. But the (seemingly) lack of interest from the development side is a bit saddening, since involving another tool in the workflow leaves Designer on the shelf - which is pity, since Photo is wonderfully replacing Photoshop. 2. Select same... functionality Other software generated PDFs from e.g. ARCHICAD are better structured, but one needs a lot of time to prepare them for exporting - I'm saying this workflow issue has two sides, but the lack of select same... features are also hurting a lot. (Also, ARCHICAD cannot produce .ai or .eps files, so the common denominator is DWG.) Thread here: This is almost a 3,5 years old request. To summarize: I recognize this is a long standing issue at McNeel as well, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who would appreciate a usable, decent workflow involving Rhino and Designer. (I've read over there at Discourse, that someone asked older .ai support already in the Windows beta threads, but couldn't find anything related.) But from your side, adding support for generic formats, namely DWG/DXF, with layers, and functionality that helps converting technical drawings (Select same) to Affinity Designer files is a must in the long run. I can only speak from my side of course, but the increasing activity in the above linked threads might suggest, that these are features that would be very welcome. Here is a small testing pack, a .3dm (Rhino) that should originate something, that I can create a usable .afdesign file from. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/nytg3owlf2rf8eh/AABtbW1dxAkhonOaRwPRI5pVa?dl=0 Thank you!
  8. I'm struggling to open this AI file from Adobe Stock. It shows Loading 1 document progress, but it never opens! I had to force quit the app. I wish I could attach the file, but it's not allowed. It also eats lot of memory! Could you please look into this?
  9. This topic may not be in the appropriate forum, but it is, I think germane to this app. Many competitors are beginning to introduce AI processing for various filters or plug ins that seem to work much better that the old ones that required oodles more time to achieve acceptable results. My question is simply if there is a future path on the horizon for Photo that has some AI features.
  10. The Affinity Quick Select Tool is quite good and I find that unlike the same tool in Photoshop CS6, Affinity QSelect will clear out fully closed areas of background (as between strands of hair). However there is room for improvement. For example Photoshop Elements 2020 (latest version of a competitor for Affinity Photo) now has an AI powered Quick Select Tool feature that is improved over the prior Quick Select for objects such as people. In the Edit mode simply clicking on a single Subject choice, P Elements, will generally select the person, or animal quite accurately in an image with a simple mostly solid background. With a more complex background the reliability is less good. A common error is failure with smaller areas, for example, such as the fully enclosed area between hands on hips. Topaz Labs has just recently released Mask AI and while the very first commercially available version had lots of problems, subsequent version have shown improvement. Mask AI comes up with the image painted with red (signifiying background) and the user must outline the object to be cut out with a blue transition marker. After filling the blue enclosed area with green marker (object area to be kept) pressing the process button starts the AI processing. Once again, when challenged with a object figure against a fairly uniform background, it tends to work well, however it takes a lot longer to prepare an image for processing than with Photoshop Elements 2020, which works with a single click. I and many other happy users of Affinity Photo, would very much love to have an improved Quick Select Tool, which probably means, one that is based on AI, since that technology appears to results in some amazingly capable competence. So this comment is simply to let everyone who is interested keep up to date with the latest technological advances and hope that Affinity Photo will also create improvements for this tool and do it even better than the competition. Thanks for listening, Dan
  11. Vectornator has an ability to convert its files into .ai through Creative Cloud. This is great feature for who work with who use Adobe. So why not implement this in Affinity Suite? Like auto-trace or Mac Version, Vectornator catching up Adobe/Corel/Serif day by day. I don't know who is investing to make it for FREE but they have plenty of capital for sure. Scary.
  12. Hi, We found that Affinity Designer has some serious problems with EPS files. Many parts of the vector end up pix-elated! We found a workaround; we opened the EPS files in Adobe illustrator, then saved it as an AI file. When we open the AI file in Affinity Designer the file has no issues! Thanks for looking into it!

  13. I downloaded the trial version of Designer, I already have a PagePlus X9 license. When I open a pdf both programs text layers are often not recognized as text but as graphics. In this video https://affinity.serif.com/it/tutorials/designer/desktop/video/301604837 we see that the text is imported correctly. I opened a pdf file and ai file and in both cases the text was not recognized. This function is important for me, is it possible to solve the problem?
  14. Affinity community, I need your help! I'm fairly new to Affinity Designer and I'd like to use some brushes which are available throughout the web. While I have no problems importing afbrushes, it seems to be impossible to do the same with ai and eps. I could not find any working solution both in the Affinity help and the forum. Let me illustrate the problem with an example. I got a pack of brushes at this website and unzipped it on my MacBook. In AD, I tried to import the brushes, like always, by navigating to the brushes panel and clicking import brushes. If I click the button, I can move to the unzipped folder where I eventually see ai as well as eps brushes. But as you can see in the screenshot, the respective brushes are greyed out—no matter if in draw or pixel persona. On this page, Affinity says that one would be able to import both brushes. And if I open an eps brush by right clicking open with, AD opens them as you can see in the second screenshot. But then, I don't no what to do to use them as brushes. So I would be very happy, if you could help me to solve my problem/confusion. Besides the aforementioned problem: AD rocks! Cheers, Ali
  15. I have some problem with EPS8 exported from Affinity always have a big size of artboard when open in AI (illustrator) (stock agency rejected). Not so sure is it about compatibility issue? Is it possible to have an original artboard size for final EPS8 or anyone have the solution for final EPS8 from Affinity for the stock market? - Thanks in advanced.
  16. Hello Trying to open an .ai file (attached) in Designer and it is not rendering some of the objects properly. It opens OK in Xara and if I export it from Xara as a pdf, Designer has no problem. What is happening? Any thoughts? Thanks oil labels.ai
  17. Hi i am Ansori from indonesia i want to make a design for mikrostock wesbsite (shutterstock, adobestock,freepic etc) and i cant keep the perfect layer name and group, i hope affinity designer customer can repair it (please) and one again please add smart fill toll like CorelDraw or shape builder toll like affinity. . Ihope you understand my languange, thanks from me Ansori
  18. Hi, I have a specific .AI file that imports completely empty in AD (and AP). The file imports fine in a friend's Illustrator and, if she saves it in the latest AI version, it then loads fine in AD. Is there a support email address I can send the AI file to in hopes that Affinity can spot the problem and improve the importer? Many thanks!
  19. Hello, we just begin to work with Affinity 1.5, as this screen shot, it seems the Affinity does not support export the document to .ai format of the illustrator on MAC. what format of Affinity export setting do we use for the illustrator on MAC which will inport Affinity document? we see that .svg format can keep Affinity data of object, layer, line, font, etc.
  20. My co worker produced an AI file for a 3mtr x3mtr poster and sent it to me as a pdf, The size was 50mb. I made some edits but when I exported the file back as pdf, the size was less than 6mb so clearly something is missing. In face I can see that there are some deficiencies in my output. Can I export the file back in the approximate size it was first sent in? Thanks
  21. I'm working with a company that utilizes Adobe Illustrator - but of course, I don't use AI. I use Affinity Designer. I assured the design team that I'd be able to import their AI files, edit, and then export to AI, and the process would be seamless. However, it doesn't appear that this is the case, because whenever I import the AI file into AD, half imports correctly, and half does not. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a specific way I need to import/export AI files into AD that I'm not aware of?
  22. Hi, I don't know if it's possible to achieve this but, imagine you work with different people and you share a .ai file, or somebody wants a .ai file of your work. Then it would be great to have a .ai export option. Thanks! *update: Sorry, topic already excist, you can delete this
  23. Two new Engadget articles discuss research projects that train neural networks to in one case generate 'fake celebrity' photographs & in the other to try to give photos taken with smartphones 'DSLR quality.' Obviously, the results are far from perfect but imagine how as this & related technology becomes more mature it could be applied to graphics software in the not so distant future. Inpainting & auto-trace algorithms could "see" more than the pixels in a raster image & adapt accordingly; color corrections & RAW development could create 'looks' otherwise impossible for existing adjustments to achieve; blending elements from different photos could be done 'automagically' to correct shadow & perspective differences; & entirely new types of filters could be developed that could do things like provide time of day adjustments. The mind boggles.
  24. Illustrator .ai file export would be nice. Exporting to EPS files for After effects just don't cut it. You can't edit the vector paths or access layers. :( Thanks for considering :)
