    Problems with Affinity Designer

    Ok, I really like AD but lately I've been having some problems with this software. 1. This is the second time that I lost all my installed raster brushes. Software crashed in both cases. 2. Affinity Designer doesn't allow me to exit. It shows me this message
  2. I seem to remember that this has been possible but I can’t for the life of me remember how that was done or whether I’ve just dreamt that: is it possible to delete a node from a curve and keep the same curvature but with less points (as illustrated in the image)? If not that would be a great feature to be added.
  3. Greetings Community! I have to work on an isometric design. I've learned that AD offers custom grid lines, so I wanted to explore these. When I go to "View" --> "Grid and Axis Manager..." and have "Show grid" & "Use automatic grid" checked, I see the standart grid being visible. Nice. However, when I uncheck "Use automatic grid" and choose "Mode: Advanced", the grid goes invisible and no matter what grid type I select, I don't get back any grid / visual feedback. I followed a youtuber doing this and he got instant results, based on the Grid type. I can't see why it wouldn't work for me. What did I miss? Cheers!
  4. Will there be any value of including Variable Fonts accessibility in Affinity products? I see this as being a great time-saver when working on projects requiring a single font in various weights. ** Not heard of Variable Fonts? reads here: https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/design-and-ux/typography/variable-fonts/ https://v-fonts.com/ https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/CSS_Fonts/Variable_Fonts_Guide https://medium.com/variable-fonts/https-medium-com-tiro-introducing-opentype-variable-fonts-12ba6cd2369
  5. Long story short, I'm not sure how to fix my layers clipping through the outside of the canvas. Anybody know how to help? Nevermind, I figured out that my clip to canvas was just off.

  7. Hey there! I've found a bug in my Affinity Designer version I directly bought from the App Store. If I'll use the fill tool in the pixel persona it doesn't do anything visible but its action is showing up in affinitys protocol. It doesn't matter if it's: a blank new file an area selected with the selection tool By the way: I tested it on a mac mini 7,1 (2014 with 1,4GHz i5, 4GB ram, Intel HD 5000) Affinity is in version 1.6.1 The OS is macOS HighSierra 10.13.2 nothing else was open throught the whole test scenario.

    Huge Crashing Issue

    I'm trying to tidy up my portfolio for the summer, but everytime I open up a project in Affinity Designer and go to studio -> color -> and then try to make a color adjustment the software crashes. It does this mostly when I start to do things other than resizing and moving things around... so basically trying to perform anything further than that makes the software crash. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and updating (no updates are available) and still nothing works. Also, the layout of the screen seemed to have changed somehow during this process. When the application opens, my home screen no longer automatically brings up the layers or color wheel or anything. And then, trying to get them back and use them crashes the software. Super annoying. I am going to attach the error message that I get everytime the software crashes. I copied and pasted it into a pdf file. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP. I don't want to have to go back to Adobe Illustrator. Crash.pdf
  11. Hi! I've noticed quite an annoying bug when selecting and moving raster artwork within Affinity Designer's Pixel Persona. I've noticed this same issue in Affinity Photo, as well as the latest beta versions of Designer and Photo, and I have no clue why it happens. When drawing with something like the pixel brush or any brush that has a hard edge (with little to no anti-aliasing), the artwork blurs when being moved, but only when selected with a selection marquee tool, such as the lasso tool, first - see attached screen recording. This leaves a very visible difference between the selected and moved and unmoved artwork, and is even visible at 100%, which is obviously a big no-no for client work. Not totally unrelated, the selection path also seems excessively jagged on screen in comparison to something like Photoshop. I often use the selection tool when colouring my work, but the edge is noticeably jagged, even when zoomed out to 100% as well. I initially thought this may just be the pixel preview, but the jagged edge is very present - see attached screen shot, and it's also very present in the screen recording video too while making the selection path. As a final side note, a Wand Selection tool in Designer's Pixel Persona would be SOOOO helpful. Anyway, I'm not sure if these are bugs, but any advice or workaround for these things will be greatly appreciated! Screen Recording 2019-05-10 at 09.03.56.mov
  12. Hi, I've googled this a quite a bit and seen a bunch of suggested tweaks that satisfied people, but I can't get anything to work, so sorry if this looks like a dupe. I'm trying to export vectors from Affinity Designer to SVG to use for a laser cutter. Every time I do, the SVG is resized. It doesn't matter what resolution or size document I use, or whether I specify an export resolution, or uncheck the "set viewBox" setting, or only export the objects and not the canvas, literally nothing produces an SVG file that preserves the actual size of what I've drawn. I've opened the SVGs in Inkscape, Lightburn, and AD itself, and they're always bigger. The first time I caught it, it had upscaled a 4" coaster to over a foot diameter. Resizing the image in another program isn't the biggest deal if all I'm doing is a 2-D design, but if I'm cutting pieces for a box with finger joints, resizing can throw things off big time. And going from AD to Inkscape to Lightburn just to get the SVG imported for the laser cutter is a bit of a pain, so I'm really hopeful there's a fix here. I've attached AD and SVG files of a simple square to demonstrate what I'm talking about. Specs: Affinity Designer 1.6.5, MacOS Mojave, recent MacBook Pro. Thanks! squaretest.afdesign squaretest.svg
  13. Hello, I just started having an issue with both Affinity Designer v1.61 and Photo v1.67 (both paid versions) where it gives me a save error: "Save failed because access to the file was lost, the document must now be closed" I never had this issue before and I have had the paid version of both apps since they first came out (approx 2 years ago?) I am using a Mac running Mojave and all of my files are saved to an internal 7200 rpm project files drive (same as always). The only thing that has changed recently is the Affinity Publisher Beta was updated. I have checked my internal drive for issues and it's clean. I haven't seen any specific fixes for this issue anywhere else in this forum so hoping someone may help.

    This is my first work on affinity designer. The following are the mock-ups where i have used my design on various products.
  15. I type out text using the Artistic Text or Text Frame tools, then double (or triple) click and proceed to highlight the text that I want to make adjustments to. The only problem is, I can't see what I've selected because the text doesn't become highlighted! I could still make edits, but it takes alot more time if I am moving quickly and don't put my cursor where I think it should be. Any help? Affinity Designer 1.6.1, Mac 10.13.3

    An exercise in working in black and white using Affinity Designer. What I need to do is find a few brushes I like and save them in a new folder of favourites as I find there too many options in the standard brushes and I loose track of where I am. I like the sprays and splatters as they give good textures. Need to play around a little more to find pencils/charcoals I like. For this image I sketched an idea in Procreate, then placed it into AD where I created basic vector linework before adding textures in pixel mode. I'd be happy not using colour anyday.
  18. Hi do allot of design work and I am working really hard on making affinity designer my main design software on iPad 2018. However, as I also use Adobe illustrator for printing. E.g. flyers etc. I just need to know what is my image dpi or how to rasterize the image to correct dpi for press printing? Thanks
  19. The coat of arms of my rowing club, Nordiska Roddföreningen i Zürich was hand drawn in 1893. A simplified version was later created at some time in the late 1990s or early 2000s. I’ve redrawn the coat of arms from scratch in Affinity Designer. The new CoA uses modern flags and a straightened shield, but otherwise hews pretty close to the 1893 design. ( I've included both earlier versions too for comparison.) I’d love to get feedback and suggestions. I’m particularly interested in learning more about how to convincingly simulate: Draped fabric (Current approach: shading overlays: shapes filled with elliptical semi-transparent gradients) Woodgrain (Current approach: brown color + 5% noise + shading overlays) Paper texture (Current approach: similar to wood) Thanks for your input!
  20. There is a bug, that occured when I tried to copy an Object, from which I generated a Symbol into an other document. I realized, that the object was still marked as symbol after I did the copy. Within the symbols tool window of the new document, the symbol was not listed. When I tried to delete the symbol state, the application crashed immediately. On restart, Affinity restored the work I did, but took up a lot of cpu power, so my fan started to spin like crazy. Finally, the application crashed again. On second restart, Affinity designer worked normal.
  21. As someone who transferred to Affinity Designer upon launch, ditching the traditional Adobe Products that most of the industry utilizes I am, for the most part, thrilled with incorporating Affinity Designer into my workflow. However, there are two features that I have been longing for. The first of which is the incorporation of editable text in an exported PSD. Some clients desperately want the PSD files of all of the work in the final form, and documents with tons of text present an issue as all text now exports as a pixel layer. I know it is a huge coding ordeal, but it would be such a huge asset to us all. Please, in your next update try to incorporate this feature for your dedicated designers using your design programs so that we are not forced to find ridiculous workarounds. Secondly, I would love to see an option for batch exporting of artboards to save them as the individual artboard name in a dedicated folder. So much of my time is spent opening a new document and placing the contents of each artboard individually on a new canvas and saving them for client work. A batch save option would be extremely helpful, especially if the same options are available there like the ones currently available in the export menu.
  22. I don't believe I've ever seen this question or an answer for it before. In the color picker tool there is a radius that can set to an area to be averaged for the color. If I select a 5x5 area, how big is this area? How do I know if a 5 unit square will cover the area I need and not bleed into an area not wanted? All the Help says is: Radius—Choose to sample from directly under the cursor (Point 1x1) or from differently sized square areas where the color is averaged. My guess is this is the number of screen pixels to be averaged. So if I have about 109 pixels per inch on my screen, then each pixel is about 9/1000 of an inch. So if I have selected 129x129 then everything that is in a square about 1-1/4 inch wide and high with the cursor centered in it will be averaged. Regardless of the zoom. So 5x5 would be an area about 0.046 inches (about 3/64") square. So if I zoom in on a pixelated image where each displayed pixel is maybe 0.1" square a setting of 5x5 will still only read that pixel in the image. When trying to average out a dithered image I would have to use a setting significantly larger setting or zoom way out. Is this correct?
  23. Hello, I was wondering if within Affinity Designer is there a "Free transform tool" to allow perspective distort with shapes, this is something that can be done within illustrator where you can take two points and can move them together or further apart with equal distance like the example below. You can kinda do this with the "Corner" tool set to straight but this is set to only one angle when perspective distort can change the angle. Thank you for your time and I hope you have a great day.
  24. I have just organized all my (raster) brushes into custom categories, but now I'm stuck on how to reorganize my custom categories so that they aren't all randomly displayed in the drop down list. Anyone know what I'm missing here, surely this is something one can do?
