  1. In the attached image, the top 'example' word is Artistic Text. the bottom 'example' word is text that has been converted to curves and then had the strokes expanded with the menu item under 'Layer.' The L is very off, but other letters are also visibly (although slightly) distorted as well. If there is a setting that bumps up the accuracy of this, then please let me know. Otherwise, the one trick I know to reduce this is to expand the stroke when the shape/text is really, really big (multiply the size by a huge factor) and then size it back down by the same factor afterwards. I do not remember this happening back when I was using Illustrator. Note: This is as of v. 1.7.1 and haven't tried this in 1.7.2 yet. If this has been fixed in 1.7.2, then great.
  2. I'm sure that I'm not alone in wanting this feature. Coming from a background of working in Photoshop (I'm not really a vector-person), I absolutely love using Affinity Designer's Pixel Persona. The organic/natural media-esque brushes have always been my go-to, and I've been using them in Designer a bunch. On the flip side, I use the Draw Persona more for layout and lettering. For this reason I think it would be really handy to have the Magic Wand Tool (the same as in Photo) in the Designer Pixel Persona. So far the selection brush doesn't really do the trick, and using the lasso (while very useful) to manually select areas can become a bit tedious. Just putting this out there for consideration.
  3. Is it possible in Affinity Designer to change the colour of the box after changing to Textframe? That would be a nice function for me.
  4. After the 1.6 update, the expand stroke function that wasn't accurate with rounded rectangles before, now is completely broken (see screenshot of a rounded rectangle, circle, and a cog). Upd. It seems to happen only in certain affinity files, not all of them. Regards, Anton
  5. Dear Dev-Team, can you please bring the Resource Manager from Publisher to the Photo and Designer as well? At least for the Designer it would be a nice feature not to save large images within the .afdesign file. In the case you have to work with images/source files from other sources it would make things easier to update them in the progress. Thanks.

    Return to 1.6 Text Styles?

    Is there any way to get the text styles back from Designer 1.6? I'm absolutely LOVING the 1.7 update and I'm grateful to not have to use Adobe but these 1.7 text styles are just awful. The ones from 1.6 were much better, even if there were only around 4 or 5.
  7. After using Affinity Designer for a few minutes, the mouse stops working off the canvas. Shortcuts work, and tools work on the artboard, but I can't click anything else. Even to close I am forced to close the software. Has anyone ever experienced this ? And how did you solve it?
  8. (EDIT) (I just heard that this might be a feature that i didn't know. Apparently, if you let go from the space bar while still holding mouse on a shape, the view tool will get locked for some reason. This topic might be in the wrong place now, since I don't know how I can delete this.) Hi! I have an extremely annoying problem with the Designer. My workflow includes a lot of panning around my document using the View tool with my space bar. Designer should reset to the previous tool when I let go the spacebar, right? Well, in my case the View tool gets stuck especially when moving shapes using Move tool and panning my document frequently. This bug came with one of the latest updates, since it wasn't around a while ago. This drives me crazy and my workflow nearly impossible. I have this problem in both of my two Macs: 13-inch late 2013 Macbook Pro, 10.11.6 El Capitan 15-inch mid 2014 Macbook Pro, 10.12.3 Sierra Using the latest Affinity Designer version 1.5.4. Thanks for the support, - Elias Salonen

  10. Hi everyone, I have only ever used Affinity Designer for illustration work and now need to start outsourcing some design work to other agencies/contractors to get projects done in time - the illustrators I'd like to work with don't use Designer, and instead use Illustrator - from reviewing forum posts here I couldn't gather if there's a reliable method of working in Illustrator and then picking up the files later on in Designer and not have compatibility issues. I completely appreciate they are two different products made by two completely different companies but if there's a way in which the above scenario may work I'd be keen to understand it and its limitations (avoiding raster elements, use only certain file types, etc) Any support appreciated.
  11. I like the new embedded Option in affinity Designer, but where in hell can i find the managing panel for embedding or linking the pictures??? Many times the pictures are not proper linked anymore, when i open a file, for which reason ever... Please, i spend hours to check every menu and search the net for solutions.. I gave already multiply times global authorization for the pictures... Thanks Dirk

  13. Hello affinity team, Thank you for making my life so easy. Affinity sparked the creativity in me. Happy to create beautiful designs easy. Suggestion: Could the brushes be organized by names? and the capacity to rename??? Now the brush that is added latest, shows up last. I'd like to have this organized by name. ( For now due to some affinity bug, cannot import brushes ) Thanks Gyan
  14. I think the video says it all. I want to cut out the line you see in the beginning, not a semicircle shape! Can I create a clipping mask from the line shape? Or can I convert it from a line to an object? I’m surprised that something so simple has stumped me for over a day. But then again, I’m new to this software. Ultimately I’d just like to export the black part of the shape with transparency. I got that down, but the cutting out of the line is tricky. Any and all help is much appreciated. FullSizeRender.mov
  15. I had a number of very primitive SVGs to make some adjustments (resizing etc. – see attachment)… But whenever I open these .svg files (from several different sources), the contents show up 180 degrees ROTATED in Affinity Designer (1.7.2, macOS)! Please try it with attached file. Opens fine and upright in Safari, Chrome, Firefox… In Affinity Designer however, after opening this SVG the Curves are upside down in the document. While upright in the Navigator Preview. Then, I select the object and set Rotation 180. After that it's upside down in the Navigator Preview. And, most annoyingly, after exporting to SVG, it renders upside down in the browsers too! What is going on? I have follow-up questions to this, but the rotation-issue is the most disturbing right now. Thanks for checking and improving. I like Affinity Designer very much, besides some weird issues now and then. youtube.svg
  16. Hello all, first time posting here. Me and my mother have been learning how to use Affinity Designer for iPad by following the instructions in the workbook. To learn how to use Vector Brushes we downloaded the resources for Chapter 3 (The Whittler). When importing brushes, the file picker comes up and literally all of the 1st party resources are greyed out and unavailable to import. I searched the forums and apparently this has been a known bug since at least Oct 2018, as Dan C writes: My mother cannot use iCloud or Dropbox to store a 500+ Mb file (this is for a single chapter's resources). I stored the unzipped files on the iPad because: iCloud Drive is notoriously bad a syncing and keeping files on device. This is problem compounded when working via a low bandwidth connection which is all our family has access to. Dropbox is not focusing on users like me an my mother anymore. I'm moving as much as I can off that ship, it's sailing for land of enterprise/team based users. I followed the instructions for importing resources from the book and it just fails halfway through. This is a "current workaround" as Dan writes. However, as October 2019 approaches (a year since their post, four updates later) this statement becomes more and more untrue and unacceptable. I'm not sure if this post constitutes a bug report, if there is a way to make an official report please inform me how/where to do so. I really like the product, my mother really likes the ability to use the Apple Pencil and we both hope this can be resolved soon. Shawn
  17. Hi! let me share with you guys a special content that I did recently about using affinity designer on ipad pro I hope you'll enjoy watching, thanks!
  18. Dear serif. I am a logo designer. I bought affinity designer for logo designing. Every logo designer needs mockup But affinity designer doesn't have warp effect so you can't have mockups. The only way to use mockups is by buying affinity photo (50$). Dear serif. Be sure that i won't pay another $50 And if i didn't get the warp tool in the next update be sure that i will leave this program
  19. Good day, Is there a way to see what the Pantone colour value of an object is? I'm working in a "Print (Press-Ready)" document. I applied a Pantone colour, and also added the colour to the swatches panel. If I hover over that swatch later, how do I confirm what Pantone colour that swatch represents? Thank you.
  20. If I have, say, five separate 'pen' lines which join into the shape of a polygon, how do I convert them into a polygon so that I can fill that polygon with colour?
  21. We are pleased to announce a major update for the iPad release of Affinity Designer, version 1.7.0 The changes in Affinity Designer for iPad 1.7.0 over the last Affinity Designer patch 1.6.4 are as follows: CHANGES SINCE LAST VERSION • Shortcut modifiers added when keyboard is attached• Arrowheads!• Node tool now has transform mode for more freeform editing of nodes• Node tool now allows for lasso selection of nodes• Alignment widgets have been added for much faster alignment operations• All new isometric controls - allowing you to create and edit directly in any isometric plane• Add multiple strokes and fills to a single shape with the new Appearance Studio• New point transform tool, allowing you to scale and rotate objects from any node• Many grid improvements, and new column guides• Many PSD import / export improvements• Layers Studio now includes options for transparent backgrounds and colour tagging.• Pixel persona now supports Sub Brushes, symmetry (up to 32-way) and on-the-fly nozzle rotation• Alternate futures for document history have been added• 100s of other bug fixes and improvements - too many to list! This thread is for commenting on this announcement. Please do not post bugs or problems that you find when using this version of the software in this thread, instead make a new thread in the Designer Bugs on iPad section and questions about usage go in the iPad Questions forum. UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers) For updates from the iPad Store are done automatically (next time you run after it is available in the store). You need to be logged in as the same user who bought the application. Open iPad store, go to Updates. Once you're there, from the top bar choose Store and on the dropdown click Refresh. It worked for me - both updates appeared instantly. If they dont' theres no point asking us we cannot make it appear quicker. Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world sometimes taking up to 24 hours.
  22. how to remove background in affinity designer? or Can we use pen tool for selection?
  23. I have just started using the software affinity designer and I am trying to figure out what everything does. Right now I’m stuck on View modes, what does Pixel mode, Outline mode and Retina mode do and change? Thanks!
  24. Is there any logic to the order in which a group of files are opened in AD and AP. I have a group of seven files called, 1.png, 2.png ... 7.png. If I select all from the finder and open them in either AD or AP they always open in a different order, i.e. the order of the file tabs reading from left to right when open in AD and AP is different each time they are opened with the exception of the last file which always appears as 7.png. These are the results showing the tab order in AD and AP when selecting all seven files in the finder and then right-clicking and selecting Open With. It's not a real issue and doesn't really cause any problems though it would be helpful if they opened either in the order they were selected or alphabetically.
