  1. Hi, when I have AD in brush mode it becomes problematic to use the scroll bars for moving around the image. The pointer remains in brush mode when I leave the design window to operate the scroll bar instead of changing back to the usual mouse arrow - as a matter of fact, it only reverts to the expected mouse pointer BEYOND the point where you'd be able to use it for scrolling (grrrr). The behaviour is consistent - as soon as the mouse pointer is again able to move a scroll bar it changes back into a brush. I can't take a screenshot of it as the brush disappears as soon as I touch a function key..
  2. Short things short, I imported abr brushes from photoshop to affinity photo, some of them work all right, some of them have some weird lines and look really unlike they originally do, and some of them are a real mess. For now I'm posting only 1 example with weird lines and brush looking quite different, later on I'll update the post with ones where it's really messed up. Here's a comparison between AP (Affinity Photo) and PS(Photoshop). Abr brush pack is obtainable from here: Deviant art brushes In both scenarios used brush is as 5. As shown in image above.
  3. Having the ability to apply a raster brush to a path would be such a welcome feature, even if the path is not editable after applying the brush effect. In many cases there are obscure shapes or angled lines that are difficult to draw freehand, and in those cases it would be great to be able to use the pen tool, but still retain the same texture and style of the raster brush you were using, as if you drew the stroke by hand. I know you can apply vector brushes in AD, but I mostly use the raster brushes in AP to sketch. Furthermore, the brushes in AD are stretched along the path, where in AP it would be great to rather have the ability to make it look like the stroke was drawn as if you were using the brush tool. I’ve recently been drawing out a lot architectural interiors for clients using a drawing tablet in Photo, and have really missed the ‘apply brush to path’ feature from Photoshop - would really speed things up and improve the end results! I’ve seen a few mentions of this online, but wasn’t sure if it was logged as a feature request yet, so here you go.
  4. Hello, the stroke is very laggy on some brushes (gouaches…) on my Windows machines. What is strange is that given the same canvas resolution on my iPad pro (2018) and MacMini (2018) there is no perceptible lag with se same brushes (& sizes). Is there missing optimization on the Windows version or this a limitation of the renderer on Windows (compared to Metal) ?

  5. Probably on my top 10 most used features in Illustrator is the stroke width tool, which allows you to adjust the width of the stroke at each anchor point. This can somewhat be achieved using the Pressure tab within the pen line settings, but it isn't nearly as precise. A couple of solutions might be: Add a stroke width tool to allow anchor points to be adjusted. Within the pressure panel, display a point on the graph for every anchor point from the shape. And allow these to be adjusted only vertically on the graph by holding shift, so that they stay on the anchor points. Create a new panel in the pen menu that allows for a numerical value to be entered in for stroke width. Thanks for listening.
  6. Each time I zoom in / out on my A4 canvas I have some delay for the first paint brush input (both with wacom tablet and mouse). I don't have this problem on Affinity Photo. (Same config, same brush, same canvas) With smaller canvas it's better but I also feel the slight delay. I tried with OpenGL and Metal to see differences but it's the same for both renderer. laggypaintbrush.mov
  7. It's what the topic title says, the further you zoom in, the slower the brushes becomes. If you're zoomed way out brushes perform between well to acceptable, depending on their complexity. As you keep zooming in, the performance drops further and further until they're unusable. This is true even for basic round brushes, but it's more noticeable in complex brushes, such as Frankentoon's. I've also noticed it's worse if you're drawing over vector shapes, which is the whole point of these brushes. See the video for a visual reference. iPad Pro 9.7" with latest version of iOS 12.4 and Affinity Designer 1.7.1. I've tested and this also happens on Windows, the more you zoom the worse the brushes perform. But on Windows, especially on a desktop machine, the sheer processor power masks the issue. Thanks!

  8. I'm pretty conversant with the Brush Editor, but I'm finding I can't actually access it for the brush I'm currently working with in it's current state. Example: To access the Brush Editor, I have to click on a specific brush in the window. If I customize that brush a bit, say, lowering opacity to 50%, then decide I need to add some scatter to it, I can't just call up the Brush Editor window. I have to go back to the Brushes panel, select the brush, and make the scatter edit. Doing so resets the opacity to the original setting, which can get frustrating. Is there a way to access the Brush Editor on the fly?
  9. Hey Guys, I'm a fashion design student and I switched from Adobe Illustrator to Affinity Desginer. I don't want to use AD just for drawings but for technical drawings too. My problem: in Illustrator I had brushes for zippers and stitches. Everytime I drew a straight line I could change the brush into a zipper or a stitch but for AD there is nothing like this pre made brushes available (or haven't found it yet). So, is it possible that someone can explain me how I make this brushes in AD or it would be nice if someone do it for me I attached you the ad file with the pre made shapes This is how they look Thank you in advance Fashion Brushes.afdesign
  10. Update: I managed to solve the delay problem by starting AP while holding CTRL and clearing all settings. The rough strokes are still present. Also the faster you draw, the more edgy (rough) the curve will get. Update 2: Another Useful note for people who have problems with the delay: A thing you might want to do, is to rename the file "c:\Windows\System32\wisptis.exe" to something like "c:\Windows\System32\wisptis.exe_". This is the file responsible for a build in (Windows) Tablet Service which causes a delay by itself, different from the delay that is exclusive to AP. It was spawning for me every time with Affinity Photo, no matter which settings i changed in order to prevent that from happening. So renaming was the only viable solution for me. ------------------------------------------------------ Hello there, i'm glad to see the Affinity line on Windows, but i have some problems in Affinity Photo. First of all, the brush stokes are delayed for about 100ms (roughly estimated). Rapid strokes as in writing text becomes a hard task. Also, maybe because of this, in the time of the delay, the part of the line you are drawing (within that delay) will be drawn as a perfect straight line, even if you try to do circles for instance. To top it off, the brush stokes themselves look very rough, and curves are not smooth at all. you can clearly see fractions of straight lines that make out the curves you want to draw. These problems are not present in other, similar applications. I want to mention that, different to other applications i tried, the brush looks very pixelated on settings near 100 for hardness. this could be intentional, but i wanted to include it. - Tests are done with a Intuos4 and a Trackball with the same results - I'm on the latest version as i'm writing, 1.5.0.45 - Windows 7, 64 Bit Best regards.
  11. Hi, I have big problems with both AD (also the latest Beta) & AP: I get very jagged/angular lines, especially when drawing quickly. It seems the digitizer can not keep up with the stroke. I made a screenshot in AD. It seems to occur more with the pixel brushes. The problem is visible in any brush I pick. see screenshot I am working with the last Version of El Capitan. I tried the latest Wacom driver, and also an older one - no difference. I have no Problems with other programs, I tried Clip Studio, Photoshop, Sketchbook and Krita and they work just fine. As it is, I can not use AD & AP for any kind of freehand drawing and painting, which really sucks: I hope you have a solution!
  12. I'm using Affinity Photo and I'd like to stroke a rectangular or circular (or any other selection) shape. I haven't figured out how to do it… I've made the selection with the rectangular marquee tool. In Photoshop, this operation is really easy but I'm stuck in AP. Thanks for your help.
  13. I made a stroke with a brush in pixel persona. Do I find afterwards which brush I used ? Where?
  14. There is no indication, either in the brush selection list, or even in a brush properties UI, which brush is selected/ in use. Please add this support. I have to keep manual notes and screenshots of what brush I'm using. Would also be a great feature to be able to assign a color, like you can do to a layer, to a brush.
  15. How do I make this brush copy the background image? Or turn it into a selection mask? I can research the method but son't know what steps to take or what its called. Thanks
  16. I read that the windows shortcut for brush size and hardness are holding Alt + Right Mouse Button and then dragging left/right or up/down. However this is not working for me. Am I doing something wrong?
  17. Want to use a vector brush? Want to use a specific color with your vector brush? Want to use a specific color that you carefully created and saved to your Swatches library? Too bad! Please add the ability to choose swatches within the color menus of the vector brush and pencil tools. Thanks!
  18. Hi, Does anyone know of a tutorial around on creating image brushes?... One similar to the preset clothing zipper brush? I.e. as in the image supplied. I've had a hunt around for some help on this but no joy finding anything. Cheers guys, H
  19. A hotkey / modifier (like pan or zooming) for flow control would be a great addition to the software.
  20. Hi, I would like to see an option for the preview in the brush panel to show the brush texture at a decent scale as shown below, rather than show how the brush appears when stroked. This is because many brushes are designed to be used as stamps rather than dragging them, and it's hard to select this kind of brush from the current panel. I own Designer, but as a CS6 user, I find this is a barrier to entry regarding Paint. Thanks, Epi
  21. Hi guys, I just uploaded a tutorial video about how to make brush in Affinity Photo. I hope you enjoy this video. Thank you
  22. In Develop Persona, Overlay: 1. Click on Brush Overlay icon. 2. Set brush size to 307.1, Hardness 50%, Checked Edge Aware. 3. Using the brush made a stroke on the image moving left to right on the area I wanted to affect. Result: Stroke appeared in another part of the image as a vertical stroke. Once I saw this happened I tried again to make a vertical stroke and sure enough the stroke appeared on another part of the image as a horizontal stroke. Did further test and sometimes the stroke does not appear at all. It all depends on where you are in the image as to whether the stroke appears or not. In any case the area actually painted over is no where near the area of your brush stroke. Windows 10 Version 2004 OS Build 19041.450
  23. Hello all, So I have to send the print file to the printing house and need an art brush stroke I created to be only 1 color. The brush preset has all sorts of tints and the printing house returned it and told me they need it 1 color only. I only need it for it's rough edges. I tried expanding the stroke so that I can fill it with only one color but that's not possible in AD. I made the stroke normal and expanded it but I cannot apply a roughen edges effect to it now because it does not exist. Please Affinity... Anyone have a workaround to my problem? ! Attached is a zoom on the brush.
  24. I recently downloaded the "Fineliner brushes" pack for Affinity photo. When I install the brushes they say "vector brushes installed" How can I access the vector brushes on Affinity photo? I don't see them show up in the brushes panel
  25. When using Affinity Photo (or Designer) for illustration or digital painting, there are two features that I use super often - the brush moodier shortcut (ctrl+alt+drag left/right) and canvas rotation. The issue is that the direction of the shortcut changes to the rotation angle of the canvas, meaning I keep accidentally changing the hardness of the brush instead of thew size while working. It would be great to have this shortcut act independently and irrespective of the angle of the canvas, so that dragging left or right still affects the size of the brush, regardless of how much my canvas is rotated. As an example, if I've rotated my canvas by 90 degrees, dragging left/right changes the hardness instead of the size as it usually would when the canvas isn't rotated. When working fast, it's incredibly difficult to keep track of how much the canvas is rotated to be able to use the shortcut properly. *PS. A dedicated rotation tool for freely rotating the canvas would be an amazing addition to Affinity! 😉
