  1. Hello! Is it normal to have my vector's edges jagging when I put something into it as shown in the uploads below? Is there any way to solve this?
  2. Is there any faster way to rename layers or do I really have to click in each and everyone and type? Even a *rename* *press tab* *rename next* would do, as Photoshop. Thanks!

    Expand Stroke has distorted results

    After I use Expand Stroke the outline of the shape I expanded becomes distorted. See attached video. Thanks! Expand Stroke Issue 01.mov
  4. If I upload a pencil drawing to Affinity Designer does it have the ability to turn it into a vector line drawing automatically?
  5. Hi, I'm trying to do some trace work. I would love to able to open a new view on a seperate monitor, yet omit the layer I am tracing from on the new view and monitor in order to see the final result as I work. Perhaps I've missed something and this is already possible. Or is this something that could be achieved with a workaround perhaps? Any and all advice would be great. Thanks in advance.
  6. Hi All, For a number of months now behind the scenes we have been producing a workbook for Affinity Designer, and I'm pleased to let you know it is available from today! This is a big book - 448 pages, in hardback - and it includes fantastic projects created by some top designers, as well as a comprehensive reference to all our tools and panels, and a set of core skills tutorials. You can find more information about it here. Usual price is $49.99 / £37.99, but we are running a 20% discount for the launch making it only $39.99 / £29.99 (+ shipping and handling). It's worth pointing out that right now the book is only available in English but we do plan to do a German version which should be available towards the end of the year. Hope you like it! Thanks, Ash
  7. In AD 1.6.1 I am having what I think is strange behavior with symbols. After creating a drawing from a set of symbols, then attempt to organize the symbols in the drawing front-to-back (or stacking) using the SHIFT & COM + [ or ] keyboard commands, all instance of the same symbol moves, They can't be independently reordered. Does that make sense? I have also had instances where, if I move a symbol to the back, notice that the other symbols have moved back as well and hit CTRL + Z, all instances but one disappear. I can't say for sure if the instances of a symbol were consistently duplicated using Copy/Paste or drag/drop from the Symbols window, but should that matter?
  8. Lately, I've been using export persona more often due to a project I've been developing. So, I thought it would be more useful than it ended up being. The slices help a lot, but I had to click hundreds of time to assign the same profile to a lot of slices, and I see no reason for an export persona not being optimized to make things faster. #1 - I couldn't duplicate any slice. Duplicating the slices created with the slice tool, allowing me to simply move it around to another part of the canvas, keeping the export settings, would be great. #2 - there's no way to batch rename or batch set a multiplier to the slices' size. I had lots of slices and had to: click, rename, click the arrow, click to type, type "5x", and, then, go to the next slice. The only batch process I could find was changing the format. #3 - why do the slice made from a vector with an adjustment layer inside ends up being giant? If I have a simple square and make a slice from it, it'll keep the proportions. If I have the same square inside a group, and, inside this group, there's an—let's say—recolor adjustment layer, my slice goes giant. By the way, I'm not here to complain. If I'm wrong in any claim above, please, correct and teach me how to do it properly. I just wanna keep the work flowing with less brute force.
  9. AD shows a very strange stroke when stroke is disabled. When I import the same document to Illustrator, the weird stroke is gone. AI: Below is the exported PNG from AD and AI, zoomed to 100%. Resolution is 3k x 4k The issue here is that the PNG that i exported from AD shows a thick grey stroke ???? While AI shows a better representation of what I expect.
  10. Hello! I have imported a couple PSD files into Designer and found them to show up with the “Embedded Document” tag, but I haven’t discovered a way to access the embedded parts of said document. If someone could help me out with that I would be truly grateful!
  11. In Affinity Designer for iPad v1.6.4.45 I activated the setting to import text in PSD files as text instead as Pixel layer. I then opened a PSD document with a text layer that uses a font I haven't installed on my iPad. When selecting said layer now and switching to the text tool, instead of the name of the (missing/replaced) font it says in red "? cracked". I would expect at least a warning on opening the file that a used font isn't installed and maybe let me choose then between replacing it with a default font or importing affected layers as pixel layers instead.

    Pen Tool Delay in Designer

    Hello everyone, I’ve noticed a small issue with Affinity Designer for iPad. Whenever I use the pen tool to create a curved path, there is always a small delay from the moment I’ve clicked and dragged on the screen to the moment the path actually appears. This does not happen with the Pen Tool in Affinity Photo and non-curved paths also appear instantly. I’m using the first version of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. I hope this helps.
  13. Hi all This is my first post here in the Affinity forums . I got familier with Affinity designer when it was in beta a few years back . For the past year I used Gravit as my main vactor app (I'm an amateur , using it for fun only). Since I'm considering the switch I would like to share my thoughs and get some feedback : Affinity designer is one time fee while Gravit Pro is annually based subscription . I prefer one time fee but Gravit is giving 60$ off for Gravit users , which makes it cheaper from Affinity designer (Though I'm not sure if it's only for the first year or every year) . I'm already familiar with Gravit and feel "Right at home" when I use it . I still don't feel it with Affinity . Should I be worried ? Unlike Gravit , I see a lot information and tutorials on Affinity , both here and on UDEMY and it makes me think Affinity is more welcomed by the design insudtry . Am I right ? Assuming I'm willing to purchase Affinity designer , will I get every minor/major updates in the future for free ? One of the main advantages on Gravit is the fact they have support for browser . Will you add such support in the future ? Thank you !
  14. Hi everyone! Not really sure if there is another topic about this particular error, nor someone has experienced this before. I'm currently working on a UX/UI project at work making the design of the screens of an app interface. This file is 285,3 MB weight and it contains +30 artboards with mock-ups. The error I'm reporting occurs when I double–click on the constrain points of a text box to auto adjust the box to the type size. It gets stuck and the loading coloured wheel keeps spinning for ages, avoiding me to save, close or do anything else than force exit and restart the app. Happily, I never had major problems and the file remains (mostly) intact. Did it ever happen before to some of you? Thanks in advance!

    Stickers with Peel Effect

    Hey guys, just a quick and clean Designer file: a round sticker mock-up for your … mock-upping needs. You can change almost everything and layers are named accordingly to their purpose: rotation, colour, outline. Also let me know if you need a rectangular version, so I’ll add one with the same style. Edit: Rectangular sticker added. Sticker.afdesign Cheers and have fun! MrDoodlezz

  17. In Affinity Designer it seems there is no way to change the opacity of global colors. This is becoming frustrating when designing UIs. Opacity is an integral part of color schemes in Google's Material Design; it completely depends on opacity to create visual hierarchy. From Google's Material Design Guidelines: "Using opacity instead of shifting colors often creates better contrast and relative luminance. For example, gray text (#727272) becomes hard to read if the background color changes to magenta." Is this feature on your road map?
  18. Hi! Pigmento is a set of 84 raster brushes carefully handcrafted for digital painters Designed for Affinity Photo and Designer, this set offer natural media look and feel. Acrylics, Gouaches, Oils and more with expressive colour dynamics and tablet responsiveness to speed, pressure and direction. Now updated with DAUB Spatula set (12 new tools for Paint Mixer Tool) and a new classification: you'll find them in different categories, hopefully now it should be easier to spot the correct tool! Check this video for a quick sample! This set is fully compatible with Windows and iOS Version of Affinity. This is a quick concept done using one of the included tool, to show the colour dynamic and blending features. Some Tips DAUB Grunge Acrylic 4 This is a brush that creates nice textures with a glaze effect and continuous tone modulation using pen pressure. You can use it as a pure cover changing the blending mode to Normal. Do you know that with Pixel tool presets if you press CMD key while painting you can erase using the same preset? Get it here I'll improve these tool with free updates, so if you want those please add your real email to the purchase page. Happy Painting! Paolo
  19. Hi, I was wondering if there is any solution for my problem. I am using Affinity Designer for creating documents for my clients, all of them are based on few templates. I have at least two artboards in each template and I export them to two filetypes - jpg and pdf. Here is my workflow: I am opening last saved document of some kind - e.g. document-1005, then I am editing it with new data and then I am saving it as document-1006. Then I am exporting (ctrl alt shift s) each artboard as jpg and pdf - because filename of Affinity Designer file is kept - its all easy for me to keep filenames constant (I have in one plce files document-1005.pdf, document-1005.jpg, document-1005.afdesign). What would be perfect for me is to use slices to export. Right now if I choose slices - I would need to change slices name everytime when exporting them. I am looking for some simple solution like what I created in Photoshop. Simple java script - it can create subfolders (when I need) and/or save file as jpg/png/psd with prefix or suffix added to original filename. Is it possible in any way? Regards, triforcesolutions
  20. I found a long buffering appear when I try to apply Geometry Tool like Add, Intersect, or Combine on a simple objects. I wait about 3 minutes and the buffering is still appear seems like it’s not responding. I need to restart Affinity Designer to start working again, but it's so annoying. Hope this things can be solved. Thanks.
  21. Hallo zusammen, in Photoshop gibt es eine Möglichkeit die sich "Schnittmaske" nennt und ziemlich nützlich ist. Ich versuche mal zu erklären was ich meine: Beispiel (Ich Zeichne in Pixel Persona): Man hat 2 Ebenen A und B. Auf der Ebene A ist ein Hintergrund mit Farben usw. Auf der Ebene B ist ein Objekt (Ein Gesicht eine Hand was auch immer). NUR dieses Objekt in Ebene B soll jetzt coloriert- Schattiert werden usw. In Photoshop hat man dann die Möglichkeit, wenn man auf der jeweiligen Ebene ist, die Taste "l" oder "j" zu drücken als Shortcut (ich weiß es leider nicht mehr genau welcher Buchstabe es genau war) und eine "Schnittmaske" hinzu zu fügen. Dann hat diese Ebene in der Ebenenübersicht einen "Punkt" davor und man kann NUR in dieser Ebene Zeichnen, sodass die anderen Ebenen von der Farbe, nicht berührt werden. Das ist SEHR praktisch. Ich hoffe sowas gibt es auch in Affinity Designer/Pixel Persona und nicht all zu kompliziert? Hoffe ich konnte mich klar Ausdrücken ansonsten versuche ich es irgendwie anders zu erklären Netten Gruß

    Expand Stroke Rounded Point Issue

    I was working on a logo recently and noticed this: When a stroke with a Pressure Profile which also has rounded endpoints is Expanded, the nice smooth endpoint is only converted to a polygon. This happens no matter the scale, color, stroke profile etc. I know there has been a lot of discussion about the Expand Stroke function of Designer but did not see this particular issue addressed. This is a very critical function that Designer must get right if I'm to kick Adobe to the curb once and for all.
  23. 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.
  24. When in the Color picker tool (eyedropper) changes of the layer selected from the layer panel do not change which layer is indicated by the blue outline in the drawing. I don't know if this is related to this report of not.
