  1. Hello: The stroke colour of the table is different from the thumbnail of the table pannel: Thanks.
  2. I'm having a problem; I think I mentioned it before; I'm just hoping that there's been an update or something since it seems like I'm missing something. I have white text on a black page that overflows (correct term?) into black text on a white page. When text is part of the same paragraph I can't seem to alter it without altering the entire paragraph. Ideally there'd be a way of having the text automatically change style when it becomes a part of that text frame. But even if that's not possible; can I not change the colour of the text if it's in the same paragraph? And even if that's possible it's frustrating because if I change any of the layout I have to keep on going back to make sure no text has crept into the wrong section and is the wrong colour which is even harder because it may be white text on a white background and black on black and, thus, invisible. Maddening! Video of the problem. Affinity_Colour_Prob.mov
  3. I found a bug in User Interface - which is not changing interface colour after choosing default OS option on macOS Catalina. The bug include just "Artboard Background Grey Level" which stays at the same position no matter which option I will choose - either dark or light. Sometimes it runs with random setting with dark background on Light option and light on dark option. I though it will sop doing that after setting your preferences for both options but it seems like with every instance of the software runs with different background, so every time I need to go back to preferences and change it manually. I'm using automatic options on macOS so either Photo App or Publisher adjust automatically but not a Designer. It's not a huge dealbreaker but it's a little annoying. I would love to see that fix in the next update. I'm using Designer on daily basis so I need to adjust background colour every day. I tried to find that topic before writing that post but I couldn't find it. I think it's worth mentioning. Thanks in advance. Adrian
  4. Hey guys, im new to affinity photo and i have a big problem. You see i want to recreate this poster (credit : dribble) does somebody know how to make the colors of the background image match? so does the mix of the rounded square and the background looks clean. thanks
  5. Is it possible to access swatches from the context menu as shown below? Of course I mean document palettes should be listed here shouldn’t they, logically? If not, why not? Thanks
  6. URGENT HELP REQUIRED Colour output is not correct when printing to PDF. Keeps adding 2% Black to an item that does not have black in the colour mix. Can anyone help Many thanks
  7. Hi Working with the vector brush in designer, I noticed an interesting setting! The brush changes color according to the fill and stroke. I even like it, I change with x on the keyboard (like in photoshop) and I have the other color. The interesting thing is that when I change to none - I have black! Even when selected, the swatch indicates none but displays shows black! This may be an interesting attempt to avoid unpainted lines, but when checked, the program should show the correct line color values. Affinity Designer 2021-02-20 17-49-48_Trim.mp4
  8. Below is a snap to help explain what I'm saying. I want to change the green fade to a blue fade. In order to do this I must type in the four CYMK or the three RGB numbers since I cannot drag a color or use the swatches panel to change a color in an effect. One day I hope this can be worked out, I would really be happy if I could use the eye dropper tool to click on the blue adjoining the green fade and have that happen as I work in the color area of the effect panels. That would be a huge help rather than looking up the colors numbers and typing them in.
  9. Hi all This has been the week of figuring out how to get my colours sorted in Affinity Photo. There is no direct support for the ColorChecker Passport from X-Rite in Affinity Photo unfortunately but I did figure out how to do it with some help. If you use X-Right ColorChecker Passport these are the steps on how to do it. This might be painfully obvious to some people but for me it was all entirely new and took a while to get my head around so I hope that this is some use to people. 1. When you are shooting your photos in a location take a photo of the ColorChecker Passports colour cards and the white card. Make sure they are in the same place as your subject matter and are properly exposed. 2. Import all the photos from your session along with your pictures of the ColorChecker. 3. Open your photos of the ColorChecker in Affinity Photo crop them down if you like and export them as 16 bit Tiff files. 8 bit might work but I have been going with 16 4. Open ColorChecker Tiff photos with the new beta version of ColorChecker Passport Camera Calibration software in the ICC tab. 5. Export your ICC profiles naming them something so you know what photo shoot they go along with. 6. Close down Affinity Photo and then re-open it to refresh the ICC database 7. Open your photos from the associated photo shoot and go to the Document tab and select Assign ICC Profile and select the ICC file you just created. And if all goes well your colour is mostly corrected. 8. Now to set the white balances correctly. Go to White Balance in the Adjustment section. Click the Picker button and then click on the photo that you took during the photo shoot of your white card. This will then automatically make the adjustment. I hope that helps some folks. I did not understand any of this stuff three days ago and it was no fun trying to get my head around it for the first time. If anyone has tips on how to improve upon this workflow please share. I am by no means an expert on this subject. All the best!
  10. What are color fonts? They are the next big thing in graphic designThey bring multiple colors, shades, textures and transparency to type They include vector shapes, bitmap images or even both into font filesAnything I write here, would just be copying from this website, http://www.colorfonts.wtf/ Have a read through it, then decide if you want colour fonts. I know, that I want it!
  11. Whenever I edit a global colour value I have a chance the popup will move around the screen after the edit. See the attached video, it makes more sense when you actually see it. I can’t find a way to consistently trigger it, but it feels like the closer the popup is to the bottom edge of the screen, the more likely it is to happen. But it’s not a certainty as you can see. I feel this might have something with the physical screen size of my device? It’s a 9.7” iPad Pro and the screen is getting cramped by today’s standards, maybe the low amount of space is making the popup be “unsure” of where to stay? I also feel like this is less likely to happen when the device is in portrait orientation, it still happens though, just less frequently. Thanks! IMG_0538.MP4
  12. See illustration. Clicking the colour block in the tool bar brings up this pop-up (as well as via other places). I use Swatches a lot - most of the time in fact. Because I'm working with branded designs 95% of the time with prescribed colours. Even when not, I tend to be disciplined about colour - creating palettes of colour to work with as I go along. This means swatches are my default modus operandi. I really wish the pop-up would remember the last thing I accessed and therefore, go straight to Swatches. Sure, if I then choose Gradient one time, the next time I go in, it'll go to gradient - totally fine with that. But every single time - every single time - there's this extra click involved - and it gets really irritating, really quickly. It's especially irritating in Designer on the iPad for some reason I can't articulate right now. I'd expect it to logically be a setting in preferences. Tick/untick: Remember last used.. or something similar. I've had a search through all the preferences and not seen it. I've a weird feeling it's in other apps in the suite like Designer desktop? (not checked). Maybe I'm just remembering from other non-serif apps. So, yes, consistency again please, all apps, all platforms (ipad, desktop). If you're really clever, there'll be other places this could apply to as well... super consistent nirvana. Yours ever hopeful
  13. I have been searching for a while now, but cant find any "select same colour" feature. All I can find is a feature request post from 4 years ago asking for this. Surely this rudimental feature has been implimented by now. Selecting and replacing a colour is one of the main benefits of vector work, to not have this seems crazy to me. I know the dev team is small and your product is so superior to Adobe is so many ways, but missing fundamental features like this makes it unusable for real world projects. I hope I am being a dullard and a select same colour feature is available. If not please add it to the top of the list of features in the next update.
  14. Dear All. I am creating artwork in Publisher which combines text and CMYK images and will be used to produce litho print from. I have (believe I have) created a 'text black' swatch. This is purely 100% K. No other colours. No Cyan, Magenta or Yellow. However, when I export as a pdf and review in Photo. The 'text black' has reverted to a CMYK black. Please help. Andrew PS. Is there a way to see seperations in Publisher?
  15. I'm using a color balance adjustment layer, I toggle the "Preserve Luminosity" checkbox and nothing happens. I attach the same process done in Photoshop with exaggerated settings and the expected outcome. Photoshop: Affinity (Both are exactly the same, the histogram doesn't change one bit)
  16. Hi guys, I can't find a field for entering hex colour codes in Publisher. Same problem Affinity Photo and Designer. Someone can help?
  17. Using the colour picker in the "magnified" mode, the RGB values on the document (e.g. fill layer) are different from the same colour in the swatches panel. For example, in a new layer filled with R:242 G:13 B:13 the corresponding colour on the swatches panel is R:220 G:51 B:17. It's the same for every choice. Is the swatches panel able to show the right colour? Thank you
  18. I have two spreads. One has white text inside a text frame and the other has black text inside a text frame. The text is set to flow from one box to another. I select the text frame and set the font to my body white font and body black font (respectively) but whenever I delete something or move something and the text moves from the black frame to the white frame it keeps its colour thus I have black text in the place I want white text. Does this make sense?
  19. Don't know if any one has run into this, but when going back and forth between two canvases I would use the colour picker tool, grab a colour to use, but upon going to my second canvas to use said colour the swatches swaps out to a different colour. Is there a way to stop this from happening so that I can keep the selected colours and swatches as I use them across the different canvases?
  20. I have a simple JPG generated by some software, and I'd like to replace one colour (straight black or white) with another, or make it transparent. So far, any attempt to use the colour replacement brush tool have not given any result, and my search on the forum found its use to be an as yet unanswered question. I was hoping this brush would act as pick-and-replace tool (if pixel is <colour set> then replace with the colour set as front) but evidently I have this wrong. As I have both AD and AP, here are my questions: - which is the best to use? - what is the exact process to replace a specific colour x with a colour y? (layer select, any settings that can mess it up, which brush to choose, how to choose the colour to change and set the colour it will be replaced with). - just in case I come across this later, is there also a way I can control the *range* of colours accepted for replacement (the cat example isn't universally the same orange). I'm clearly missing something simple, but I can't seem to identify what.
  21. Designer 1.8.5.703 on Windows 10 (same fop beta 1.9.0.743). I don’t know if this is by design, or a bug, or just a missed opportunity, so I thought I’d mention it. As you can see in my attached video, when I have multiple shapes with differently-coloured strokes, swapping the stroke colour for the fill colour makes all the shapes the same fill colour. I thought it might be nice to have the stroke colour and fill colour of each shape to be swapped individually. Is this something that other people might want, or is there a good reason why it works this way? 2020-09-22 09-09-18.mp4
  22. Hi, I'd like to set a colour (not the default black) for the workspace background which is different to the document area, but I can't see how to do this. Can anyone help please? Cheers, H.
  23. Hi guys, I'm at a loss. To confirm I run Spyder to colour manage my display and I have read the display calibration spotlight before writing this. However, when I export images from Affinity the colours come out wrong. See the attachement. I have included my export settings.
  24. Can you modify the tint of a global colour? From what I've found you can edit the CMYK / RGB etc. values, but no tint. So if I need to globally change a colour from 95% to 85% tint I have to find every instance of that colour or am I missing something? I've tried so many different ways with opacity and tint, but can't figure it out. Many thanks!
  25. The style, Heading 1 is the right colour (dark red) everywhere else in the whole document, nothing I do will get this particular piece of text to change to the correct colour. Can anyone suggest what might be the problem please? John
