  1. Hey, I have a issue that was in the past DESIGNER and still in the new update. I have a document i always reuse. 2 art boards. One is a wide format for social media , the other square. I change the content and also rename the art boards for output , so they have the correct name. When i rename the art board and switch to slice module, the art boards have the old name before i rename them. So I have to rename them twice. Anyway to get this fixed? Thanks Gary
  2. Affinity Designer Version 1.7.1.1 iPad Pro 12,9 inch first generation, iOS 12.3.1 I added screen recordings for clarity. Problem 1: Margin and bleed not working for artboards Margins and bleed work perfect for documents that do not use artboards, but when I convert it to an artboard using "Insert Artboard" it stops working. Same goes for creating a document and enabling the option "Create Artboard". Bleed still shows, but changing the values for Left, Right, Top or Bottom doesn't change the bleed. When opening the menu again the values are back to what they were before using "Insert Artboard". Margins also don't work, it goes back to Left 0.0 Right 0.0 Top 0.0 and Bottom 0.0. Trying to change this makes it immediately jump back to 0.0. margin_bleed_artboard.MP4 Problem 2: "Check Spelling While Typing" option is always on when loading any document check_spelling_while_typing.MP4 Problem 3: Limited selection of presets for inserting artboards in an open document It looks like the artboard presets of the category "Device". However, the bottom four options are also missing: Kindle Fire HD 7, Kindle Fire HD 8.9, Galaxy S5 and Surface Pro 2. There is an option missing for selecting the category like when creating a new document. It seems that this simply has been overlooked. insert_artboard.MP4
  3. Automatic renaming of layers and artboards When copying artboards several times, they are added with the same name. Often this ends up with many artboards with the name "Artboard1". Artboard names are for example important when exporting, so they should have unique names I need an option which, after selecting layers or artboards, would allow me to give them a name with consecutive numbers like CustomName 01 CustomName 02 CustomName 03 ... It is very uncomfortable and time consuming to manually edit this for 30 artboards.
  4. How can i remove the gray border on all artboards Are the following options available? - enable / disable border - change color Thanks BR George
  5. I have recently completed the Udemy course "Affinity Designer, Solid Foundations" by Simon Foster. Thoroughly enjoyed it (17.5 hours of video!). In one section, Simon used the scenario of proposing a presentation to a client using artboards, symbols, Simon has 30 years experience as a professional designer, and it shows. The course starts with basics, but leads on to more advanced workflows The section on Presentations works well so far as it goes. But if you map the ideas on to PowerPoint, then it misses a few tricks which are nothing to do with Affinity Designer. So could it be developed? And if so, would it then be a useful tool for creating PowerPoint presentations? The presentation below sets out this opportunity, which I am pleased to say I have discussed with Simon, though the words used are entirely mine. Sample artboards can be downloaded - see notes below video. It is more of an exploration than a tutorial. (There are notes with timings for the topics covered after the You Tube posting. Some relate to Affinity features that gave a few problems)
  6. Hello! I find it very difficult to see which layer I selected with all artboards already "highlighted"... Is there a way to turn off automatic highlighting of artboards? Or augment the contrast between artboards and selected layers? Thanks!
  7. How to save artboards to independent files in several clicks instead of many ...?! Thanks!
  8. If I create two artboards A and B and add artboard column guides to B, those guides do not show up when I drag in an object from artboard A to B until I deselect the dragged object and then reselect it. This makes placing the object accurately more difficult and is an unnecessary step that you have to repeat every time you drag in objects, which is a lot. Ideally, the guides should show up immediately when you drag an object into the artboard's space. MacOS 10.11.6, Mac Pro 3.1, Cintiq 21"UX, Affinity Designer 1.8.3 If there's a setting for this (I can't see a reason why there would be, but I've been wrong before), I will be very greatful for pointers.

  9. I'm using the latest version of both Photo and Designer and didn't have this problem before updating to the latest version 1.8.2.620. The bug happens in all documents, both newly created and older projects opened up in this version. I'm on the latest update of Windows 10 and have a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070. Here's how to create the bug (It requires both Designer and Photo): Start a new project in Designer Create at least one Artboard (This is essential) Create a few objects (or import a few images) and make them overlap (may not be necessary to overlap them, but do this to be sure) Select File->Edit in Photo... from the menu In Photo select one of the layers and apply the Live Filter Denoise Most filters don't work, but a few do. I was specific above just to make sure to have one that doesn't in my description. RESULT: Now some layers completely disappear and others partly show (there's a patterns but it would be a waste for me to explain). Deactivating / activating the filter clearly shows that the filter isn't doing what it's suppose to do. Lastly to answer if this worked before: Yes. I had no problems with this before the latest update. The gif below show an example how it behaves. Sorry for the crappy quality, but it shows clearly what happens. I also included the Affinity-file for this example with the post. bug example (activate and deactivate the filter).afphoto
  10. Hello Guys, theres any way to have grids only visible in the artboards? It works perfect work with canvas... see the pictures below
  11. I know that when an AD file that has artboards is first opened in APu there is an option to convert the artboards to pages, but is there any way to do that after it has been opened in APu & has artboards that have not been converted to pages? I ask this because I have been playing around with template (*.aftemplate) files. When I create a new document in APu from a template created in AD & it has artboards, there is no option that I can find to convert its artboards to pages, neither at the time of creation nor afterwards. For example, try opening Artboards & symbols.aftemplate in APu. It is a test file that has 3 artboards (& symbols but that doesn't seem to matter). It opens fine in APu but it would be nice if there was an option to convert its artboards to pages without resorting to tricks like changing the file extension or whatever.
  12. Since creating artboards in version 1.8, the name of the artboard no longer appears above it in the canvas area. How can I get that back? Thanks!
  13. I am in a document and used the rectangle tool to make a new second artboard but it is coming out Transparent. How do I change the color of an artboard once I am already inside a document? I also tried using the drag a rectangle method but still my first artboard is white and the second one is showing transparent?????? is this a bug in my app???? thank u! P.S. I am super new to Affinity so maybe this question is obvious but I cant find it
  14. Just a little thing really but - currently, as soon as artboards are cloned they appear in the layers panel under the same name, and it's difficult to know which is which without clicking around the place. Of course they will eventually get proper names, but it would be lovely if they just named themselves Artboard 1, Artboard 2 etc when cloned. That is all.
  15. Hi, I just learned from one of the video tutorials, that an artboard can have a color, which is a nice thing to have. I tried it and realized, that it seems, that the color does not extends into the bleed, when exporting the document. Is that so or do I miss a setting? Thanks Sebastian
  16. I'm trying to create a blur gradient, so I: Duplicated a rasterised image Added ±65% gaussian blur to the top image Tried to use the fill tool to create a transparency gradient of the top image Every time I select the pixel image and pull the fill tool across it, the program hangs solid. I've tried: Restarting Affinity Restarting the laptop Not using the gaussian blur Changing the image Anyone have any idea why this is happening and how I can get around it? p.s. I'm not sure if this is the best way to achieve the affect I'm looking for, so if anyone has any alternative suggestions I'm all ears p.p.s. The spinning beachball of death does its thing pretty much as soon as my mouse stops on the right-hand side of the image. affinity fill tool issue.mp4

  18. Hi all! I’ll cut to the chase. I make customisable kid’s books - currently with Adobe Illustrator and InDesign. Right now, the child’s character is an Illustrator file placed at multiple points throughout an InDesign document (the book) and I go through and change layer visibility (annoyingly I have to do this manually on each page) depending on the visual options selected. Finding and replacing text is easy. I’ve been trialling Designer and the Publisher beta and am really impressed, but I have a question for those more in the know: Is there a quick way to choose which layers in an imported linked file into Publisher are on / off? So far I’ve been clicking to edit the linked file from within Publisher but if, for example, I wanted to switch on a particular hair style and colour layer, I’d have to do this for each artboard, defeating the object of saving time. Throughout the book, the character might change clothes so I’ve used artboards to different but was hoping common layers like skin, hair, eyes etc. could be shared and quickly switched on / off for everything quickly. It looks like artboards in Designer are like a traditional group and a Designer file with multiple artboards doesn’t share layers. Is there any way to change this or another way of doing things / thinking about this? My initial thinking / solution: Tweak my Designer file so it has an artboard for all common features needed on each page and other artboards for other layers that only need to be visible on certain pages? This way, I could place a Designer file a few times in the same location in Publisher and have different layers on / off overlaid on each other. Seems a bit of a clunky workaround though. Publisher question (sorry, wrong forum but related to this): when you import multiple instances of a Designer file and want to be able to play with its layer visibilities throughout, can you set some layer overrides in some instances of an imported file and not others? Thanks so much in advance (and sorry for the long post! Just really like Affinity and want to change over!).
  19. Just created my first project in Affinity Designer for iPad, and am having trouble with the consistency in the file size for my exported .eps files. Notes: The original ("Poster Borders to Export.afdesign" - see attached) file was created from scratch in AFDesigner, and to the best of my knowledge, is entirely vector, so the exported EPS files should be quite small. The file is comprised of three artboards, all the same dimensions (48" x 36" - most of the drawing is white space, as the project required building only a 12" vertical band on the left of each poster ). When I go to export each artboard as an EPS, Artboard 1 exports at around 100k (this is what I would expect), Artboard 2 exports around 5.5 MB, and Artboard 3 at around 25MB! Can anyone shed some light on why they are exporting at such wildly divergent sizes? I've attached the original .afdesign file and screenshots of the three EPS export screens. Thank you!

  20. I am not sure if this is the right place... I did some artboards in DESIGNER - then i switched to PUBLISHER where the artboards were converted into pages... !!!! and then I want to switch back into DESIGNER (CAUSE I CAN)... BUT... pain!!! Where are all my PAGES OR ARTBOARDS?!?!??! only one left?
  21. If you change the displayed/active artboard of a multi artboard Designer file placed on a master page, this change won't be reflected on regular pages. It always shows the artboard that was first visible upon placing the file. It's possible this also happens with other types of multipage documents (Affinity Photo, PDFs) but I only tested with Designer files. Steps to reproduce: Open Affinity Designer Create a new document with 2 Artboards Draw a purple circle on the first artboard and a blue square in the second, just so they're instantly recognizable Save it somewhere, you can now close Designer, it won't be used anymore Create a new Publisher file, check Default Master so a master page is already applied to any pages added Add a few pages to the document, let's say 6, just so the issue is more evident Double click Master A in the Pages panel so you can add elements to it Place the Designer document you saved on step 4, by default it should show the first artboard, the purple circle Notice the purple circle is correctly displayed on all pages where the Master A is applied Back on the Master A, select the placed file and use the context toolbar to change to the second artboard You should now see the blue square on the master page as expected Notice that the blue square is not being shown on the pages where the master is applied, instead you continue to see the purple circle This is not just a visual bug, if you export a PDF all pages will indeed have the purple circle instead of the blue square Thanks!
  22. Hi, It would be great to have bleed option for every artboard differently. Like margin, you can set for each artboard different size. Use case: I have lots of different sizes of poster where I using 3mm bleed but when it is too large for example A0 I will make artboard that is only 10% of normal size to don't have a file that has 800Mb. I just want to send small file to printer and there I will enlarged it 10 times. The graphic is 10 time larger but also the bleed. It is not have 3mm now but 30mm. So for this example it will be great to set bleed for this particular artboard only to 0.3mm So it would be great to have possibility set bleed in export persona or just in artboard preferences like margin. Thanks for your hard work cheers
  23. Hello, my first day after registration and so on my first question. I´ve made a single File with different Artboards and want to export these as a single PDF File. How can I export (in Affinity Designer -iPad) these Artboards to a single PDF File with Individuals Pages? In the quick export menu, the drop-down button "Bereich" (Area) is grey, so I can´t select the individuals Artboards at all. With the Export Persona I can´t export in general. I´ve created for each Artboard a Slice but after i´ve tried to export them I only can choose the folder and not save them. Is there a Bug with the Export Persona for iPad? Thank You for help
  24. When trying to align artboards with the help of snapping I get very inconsistent behaviour (with snapping turned on, of course). For example: I have four square artboards with precisely the same dimensions and I want to arrange them in a square (like this : : ) with a distance of 10px between each artboard. I place the top left first, take the second - top right - and get snapping guides to align it. Once I take the third artboard - bottom left -, I get no snapping guides at all. It doesn't align with either of the before placed artboards. Only if I deselect it, select another artboard first, then select the one I want to move again I get snapping. But even then it is not consistent. In addition, it would be wonderful if snapping between arboards would take all gaps and sizes into account. If I, for example, have three artboards arranged like this : . and I want the distance between the top and bottom to be the same as between the bottom left and right. Please let me know if I have missed something and this is already a feature. Thanks in advance!
  25. Is there any way of reproducing the layout of an artboard so that I can produce a 24 page document without having to set up the margins and guides on each artboard?
