  1. I have attached the .afdesign file. When merging the two left nodes (quick edit: it happens with the right most ones too, just lower on the leg): you get the leg in the "after" artboard that has been deformed and has nodes in areas outside the vector region.

  2. All I want to accomplish is have the “outline” of the horse shape be transparent rather than white. I’d like to use the design on Cricut (I’ve been able to cheat and erase extra white so far) and on business cards and platforms with colored backgrounds so the white is not ideal. I’m trying to subtract is from the back shape and am having a hard time. Help? I have a screen recording and file copy attached 😬 IMG_0180.MP4 pdr logo.afdesign
  3. I'm expecting smooth cuts when I subtract the lines from the circle. I happened before but i made an error, now it keeps staggering near the top few lines. Any pointers as to what im doing wrong? The circle and rectangles have been converted to curves. I have tried doing them individually but keep getting the same error.
  4. As many of you I recently moved from Illustrator / Photoshop to Affinity's alternatives because of the pricing issue. Design has become more of a hobby, and I can't justify a monthly subscription. Overall, I am really impressed with the applications (Designer / Photo, mac and iPad), but one thing I really painfully miss from Illustrator, though, is I heavily relied on the Pathfinder, more specifically the "Divide" operation. I was used to, for example, divide shapes using a curve, or divide multiple shapes to very reliably. As many pointed out, the experience in Designer is less than perfect - for one, you can only combine shapes with other shapes, and even so, in simple divisions, you get a ton of unwanted curves spliced off the intersections. I saw a bunch of posts describing the problem, but not really a lot of workarounds or solutions. So I'm writing this post to see if I can get something a little more constructive than 'Divide is still garbage' comments. So I guess I have 2 questions. One for the dev team: Where does this fall on your roadmap? Can you shed a light on if and when can we expect to see reliable divides integrated on the app? Another for the community: Do you have some good techniques / workarounds that you've found to overcome the divide limitations that you could share? Thanks in advance!
  5. I'm just getting started with Designer and am excited about its potential. Excellent work by the Affinity team! I create logos and lettering primarily, and with my method of building shapes with the pen tool, I intersect my line segments in order to be able to edit anchor points and handles of one segment without altering the adjacent segment (see attachment). With Illustrator's Unite function in the Pathfinder palette, I am able to divide a single shape where the paths intersect and delete the unwanted areas outside my desired final shape, while the unwanted overlaps inside the shape are automatically removed by the same function. I've tried a workaround in Designer by placing another small shape inside my desired shape, which is then absorbed completely by the 'Add' operation, but the intersections of my original shape are unaffected. I'm sure this sounds confusing, but I'm not sure how to explain it in a better way. Hopefully the attachments will make it easier to follow. The attachments are from Illustrator's workspace to explain the desired functionality. Is there another way I can do this with Designer? Thanks, Jeff
  6. Hi, everybody, I'm a new customer! I took advantage of the "homeworking" discount this period! I had already tried Designer but now I can finally work on it. I'm trying to understand how he thinks in the combination of shapes, since I'm not a Master in graphics, I can't understand how to create this simple pencil shape so that it's 1 shape only! I attach a gif, I'm stuck, I can't figure out what to do so that the two vertical lines of the pencil remain (the ones in the middle). I've tried dozens of different ways, with curves without curves, with shapes, booleans...😰 Where am I wrong? Thank you very much. pencil.afdesign
  7. I think Boolean - Divide tool has problem as attached video. divide.mp4
  8. Hi, even in 1.8.3 with announced boolean fixes, the add option unfortunately still making unwanted points on curves. For example the heart icon I "welded" from two identical halves. I expect to have just two point at the central axis. After the boolean operation there are even two more.
  9. I am trying to use the boolean tool but the operation leaves a thin unwanted line, kindly help.
  10. Hi In 1.8.3 i tried to do some boolean operations over two single circles (Tried both as editable shape and converted to curves) The results are… pretty absurd. This is super basic boolean. I've attached the example file. Steps: 1 - do a single circle with circle shape tool. • 2 - duplicate with Alt-drag • 3 - Do a boolean operation and wonder about the mysteries of life. Is super weird. EDIT: ADDED INFO: I've been unable to repeat the error. It seems to only happen to the shapes currently in the example file. as soon as I create a new shape, it works well again, except with the existing circles. You can try to duplicate and perform boolean. It seems that the original circle has something incorrect in it, but can't tell you what is it. It was made directly as a simple circle and duplicated. I hope you could find some mischievous glitch on it. boolean-nuts.afdesign
  11. I miss this Illustrator-function. Input: Overlapping shapes with different colors and blend modes. Output: Cut out shapes for each intersected part affected by colors below, color equivalent in normal blend mode. (No rasterizing, no pixels.)
  12. Hello guys i'm little bit stuck whit a very strange bug never happens before to me. Let me explain better, when i goes to blend those curves already expanded by strokes by Boolean op AF start to load like he is doing a super complex operation that should be instead very easy. pls help me to understand if depends on my pc that is not brand new but should runs Designer nicely for my kinds of works 😂 How you can see on the screen i was able to merge the first snake but not the second or third, even to mention doing all three together... that I thought should works easy , so the only way to stop this loading is terminate AF😟 Thank you for your attention and my apologize for bad English 🤗
  13. Hello, Affinity Team, with the new version 1.8.2.620 you have once again done a great job and got Designer more stable. First of all big praise for that! Now to the problem: In the new version 1.8.2.620 I read the point "Fixed several boolean operations and expand stroke issues on simple geometry or compound objects" and was really happy! But after the installation the big disillusionment, "it" is still there! Please try to solve the problem once and for all, I have a lot of work here and can't get any further. I have to export my drawings to Illustrator and edit them there AD_1.8.2.620_expand_stroke_problem.mp4 AD_1.8.2.620_expand_stroke_problem.afdesign
  14. Hello, I have converted both rectangles to curves and then try to merge them using the Boolean operation. but the result is unexpected and the arrow shape breaks apart. why the shapes don't merge perfectly ? See attached video and Affinity Designer file. Thank you, Boolean-Operation-Bug.mp4 boolean-operation.afdesign
  15. Just two ordinary shapes made with the pen tool, but if you try to union them, this happens: Demo file: Boolean Bug.afdesign
  16. I do a lot of logo designs and I'm running into some issues, when I'm building a shape using multiple pieces of geometry, and want to "Add" them together to create a single compound shape it sometimes leaves micro-gaps. It's most notable when you "Divide" overlapping shapes, and then "Add" them again - it will always leave these gaps and it's really annoying. When I do "Add" I expect it to fill in those micro-gaps. I wish we had the Shape Builder tool already
  17. I discovered by chance that errors occur in "destructive" and "non-destructive" Boolean operations. Here is an example of "non-destructive" Boolean operations: boolean_operations.afdesign
  18. Trying to add these two shapes into one shape, not sure what’s going on. Would like as few nodes as possible. IMG_5075.MP4
  19. Hi everyone, I'm creating this topic because of an issue I have with Affinity Designer. Let me show you an example on the last project I had to work on. I have two circles who are curves, and I want the part of the smaller circle who is outside the bigger to disappear. . Here's how I tried to do that : 1/ I duplicate them (because I'll need them again later), hide the first ones and and divide the new ones with a boolean operation. 2/ I delete the part that I don't need. 3/ And finally, I combine them with the "Add" boolean oparation. And, there is my problem. I still have a small space between them, we can see it a little on the last screenshot, but let me show it to you with a zoom. How can I avoid this ? The spaces are here, they are real and can be seen at almost every level of zoom, even more if I apply a gradient on it (bad luck, this logo is with a gradient lol). A last screenshot that will maybe help you help me : As you can see, the two "levers" that allow me to change the curve are not exactly at the same position, I think that my problem will be solved if they were, but why aren't they ? Thanks a lot to those who will at last try to help me, that's a problem who completely prevents me to work on logo projects with Affinity Designer. Chris
  20. I don't know if this is part of the same problem: In PagePlus, I insert a picture and convert it to curves. I add a quick-shape rectangle so that it partially covers the picture. I select both objects and use Join Outlines > Subtract. The rectangle cuts out part of the picture but the rest of the picture remains visible. If I do something similar in Design or Publisher, the picture gets cut out but what's left turns black.
  21. I'm having serious issues with the Boolean operations in the Designer. Here is an example of a super easy mandala made out of circles. The effect is not only lagging but most importantly super unexpected and the software starts to be unreliable. I tried with and without pixel snapping, with and without symbols, filled and not – no luck. What is more frustrating is that every time I get slightly different effect, none of which is the desired one. The Boolean operation ar absolutely necessary for me. If you're not planning to fix them in the coming days/weeks, please let me know – I need this project to move forward and the Affinity tool is completely unreliable.
  22. Hi folks, I came across an issue when I was trying to copy a style across various shape sizes, and when I was using boolean expressions to change a shape which already had a bitmap gradient style applied. If I create an object, and then apply a style to it, duplicate this (boolean issue.png) and then change the shape of the object with boolean expressions it changes the way the style has been applied (boolean issue 2.png). If I create the object and don't duplicate, then use boolean expressions it keeps the same bitmap gradient (boolean issue 3.png) or if I change to curves and add/remove nodes it keeps the style the same as it should be (boolean issue 4.png). The original is on the left, the duplicated version is on the right, both had a 'Subtract' applied (boolean issue 5.png) Thanks
  23. I was trying to subtract two shapes from another and it gives an unexpected behaviour. Even if I this was a user error (which I don't think it is) this result does not match the expectation. So I'd consider this either a bug in code or in UX. This is with latest version from the MAS on 10.14.6
  24. When I grab these individual fill pieces to merge them together with the boolean operation "Add", it turns them into an outline - . Most of the time this works just fine, but why in some cases might this result occur? thanks!
