  1. You guys are selling this in your store. Bought it with you 50% off promotion, but its seriously slow. To the point its not worth using. Is it the brushes or Affinity Designer or Photo? Slow in both. All other brushes are fine. Not my computer at fault..Can't buy much faster than this. https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/store/product/daub-paintbox-brush-pack/ If you dont' have a fix, i wouldn't mind my money back as its pretty useless the way it is.

  2. When is AFFINITY going to allow plugins to be made for their software? I would really like to use HOT DOOR CADTOOLS. Its an amazing plugin. I recently asked them if they intend on making a DESIGNER version. But they said AFFINITY doesn't allow this? This is odd, these other companies can help you grow and give us users the specific needs they require. This goes for PHOTO as well. AFFINITY your software is great, but it could be even more amazing with tons of companies supporting it. Please open the doors to these developers. If you don't believe me see how BLENDER had risen to the top of the 3D with completely open source coding. The addons for this software are amazing, making great software even better and one of the best communities for software ever. Just my thoughts Gary
  3. Hello folks, here is a vector portrait of David Bowie, created with Affinity Designer. Would appreciate feedback, that would be great. https://www.bodobe.de/bowie-vector-portrait/
  4. Any Distortion, Warp, or Perspective distort features soon? This year? Any date release? I need to know if I need to change apps. What is everyone else doing to get around not having Distortion or Perspective distorts in Affinity Designer? Any tips?

    Vintage scroll frame (assets)

    I’m thinking of making a pack of vintage/scroll frames, as assets.. can be a quick way to making ideas for vintage signs, sign painting etc.. i have been sketching some frames (as you can see in background) and now vectorizing them, so they can be edited.. Maybe it’s not necessary to make them as assets, but just figured out how it works :-) Would anyone be interested in a pack like this? :-) What do you think?
  6. I can't understand why a fliped frame shows the filled text mirrored. Same happens with text on path. Take a path flip it, and the text you fill on that path is mirrored. I have no idea where i should use this for. I would prefer a flipped frame, that is an other "normal" frame after flipping. Thanks!
  7. I have opened a document from Publisher that is based on Master Pages. These have picture frames and Artistic Text on them. In Designer on iPad these items show up with little X symbols instead of the usual round corner and side handles. Also their layers have an orange line beside them. I assume this shows that they are Master Page elements and thus locked for editing. Is there an "Edit Detached" mode as there is in Publisher or also for instance in Photo for Mac (I don't have Designer for Mac yet)? Also, I can pull another layer onto a Master layer or a layer within it and it will go there. But after that this layer is completely locked. It can't be moved, deleted or pulled out of that Master layer. Albeit it not even having an orange line beside it. What's going on there?
  8. Is Snap to Margins possible?
  9. I've got a problem or two with an AD thing I'm working on. This old console telly is one of the elements in a project I've set myself (details below).First, the different planes just won't butt up precisely: there's always a tiny gap, even though the stroke is turned off. I've found this before, and I don't think it's a side-effect of using the isometric projection.Second, how can I get a curved edge between the top panel and the sloping front and get the bitmap fill to follow the curve?
  10. Hi, made a logo in Affinity. I provided the colors with the logo. HEX, RGB & CMYK. Now they ask the PANTONE color scheme. How to see that to pick the correct color? Thanks in advance.
  11. The Node Tool icon supposed to have an expansion arrow on it to reveal the Point Transform Tool for selection. For some reason this arrow is not showing on Designer. From the help file I found that the short cut key for the this tool is F and that is the only way I can currently access it. The Designer version I currently have is V1.7.3.481 and I did not get notification if there would be an update. See missing expansion arrow from icon at link https://www.screencast.com/t/ulJVVYGQXIXf
  12. Hello guys, I have difficulty to translate or use the text from the Arabic language in the app Affinity Designer. When I copy Arabic text and paste in Affinity, the Arabic text is not even appropriate as there is in Word. And when I tried the Tools from the website http://arabic-text.com it worked. But the signs read in Arabic text is very close together, not like in Word. Thank You
  13. maybe I'm missing it, but is there an option to open a JPEG, or bitmap image and trace,or convert it to a vector file for further editing? If not there should be one, it would be a great option. even if it had only a few modes like black and white, and 5 color it would make me convince me to convert from adobe illustrator
  14. I created a tutorial on how to take your designs in Affinity Designer and export them into blender to create 3D prints. Hope you find it interesting. https://youtu.be/r--mPzHZDlw
  15. Below: Word document tracked change example Below: InDesign document tracked pasted example (matches visible copy in Word) Below: Publisher document tracked pasted example (includes all the 'deleted' copy from Word) I have recently hit a new problem in my transition of workflows to Publisher that when using a tracked changes Microsoft Word document to cut and paste amends to Publisher (and Designer) it seems to bring all the detritus of the tracked changes with the word clipboard, therefore including all the deleted content that should be ignored. After working this way for many years in InDesign this has caused a couple of embarrassing slip ups - not so much in native English but in translated docs such as the example included. So where is the problem and is there a cure? Content pasted into InDesign appears as the corrected text in Word - obviously the desired effect, but as far as I can tell an automatic scenario and not a preference in either InD or Word. Certainly I can find no preference or pasting method in Publisher that offers a solution. Yes I can Review and accept all changes in Word before cutting and pasting, but then I lose all indication of where the changes are/were in the Word doc, so need to have 2 word documents open to flick between. If I'm missing a trick please let me know. If not, this is a problematic issue/bug in a regular workflow.
  16. Hello, Great work on the new Designer / Photo release @affinity! I have a bug in Designer stable and beta (1.7.1.404), when I try to open / activate the Brushes Panel the app crashes instantaneously. I had this problem earlier too, but was relieved when I saw it fixed in the previous release (1.7.0.367). Now it's back. I had the same problem with Photo too. Now Photo won't launch at all (since the Brush panel is open by default I think, so resetting the Studio does not help). Yes, I tried removing all third party brushes, and as I said previous release worked without any problems. Any help is appreciated. (How do I roll back my active Designer / Photo instance to an earlier version? Simply uninstall and reinstall using the previous installer?) Thanks!
  17. For selecting multiple objects in Layers panel you can use Shift-click method: click on first layer, then Shift-click on the last one = all layers between them will be selected. There is a little bug if the Shift-clicked layer is a text (artistic or text frame) causing that the text layer's Show/hide toggle is switched. If you continue Shift-clicking on the text object, the fun continues too: - second Shift-click switches the toggle back, - every next Shift-click switches the toggles of all the layers in the selection! This bug is in Publisher and Photo too.
  18. I don't know if this should be here or in Feature Requests, so by all means move it to whichever is correct. In any case, I was wondering if there were any plans to add support for plugins in Affinity Designer (as has been done in Photo). If so, will you focus on existing Adobe Illustrator plugins or on plugins designed for Designer? I also have a question concerning the nature of plugin support (both as it is now and in the future), which is why I elected to post this under "Questions" rather than requests. Are there (or will there someday be) plugins designed for Affinity, or is the feature meant specifically for supporting Adobe's plugins? Is it possible to create plugins specifically for use in Affinity Photo?

    Australian Bushfires- My Donation

    My way of raising money towards the Australian Bush fires Everything in my shop that is sold between today, January 11th 2020 until February 29th, 2020 I will be donating 50%.That is SALES not profit. Daily updates will be posted first thing every morning my time (Melbourne) AEST. Also I am tweeting Affiliation links to hand picked designs form the same marketplace as where my design kits are sold. Creative Fabrica. I am also in discussion with the wonderful people at Creative Fabrica on a joint fund raiser so look out for that as well. So PLEASE SHARE. On the 1st of March 2020 I shall announce the total of the Sales through my account at Creative Fabrica (screenshot) plus proof of payment of donation to Official austrlaian Red Cross who have been Tweeted with the following short video clip. I am 35 minutes away form the Victorian fires and watch the online Vic Emergency Services site 24/7. My heart is broken over the devastation ; those whose lives were lost; the animals the millions upon millions of animals all gone. Just heartbreaking. Australia_Bushfire_Fundraiser_1_My_Designs.mp4
  20. Hello, I have this issue. Not properly visualized gradient Affinity (Publisher; Designer) Google Chrome visualization.svg
  21. I just purchased and downloaded Affinity Designer last night. I attempted to open a .ai file with it, and was met with an error regarding permissions. I also tried to save an Affinity project (.afdesigner), which was met with a permissions error as well. The error reads: I am only able to read/save files in my newly created Affinity Designer iCloud storage, which is not the workflow I will be adopting. Before anyone flags this as a duplicate or writes this off, know that I have: Tried saving to/reading from multiple directories within my home directory, not limited to my Documents folder. (eg: ` ~/`, `~/Pictures`, `~/Downloads`) Used CleanMyMac3 to repair my disk permissions (multiple times) Manually reset permissions on my home folder recursively to all subdirectories and files (Right click > get info > Permissions & Sharing) Manually reset permissions on my home folder via terminal Ran First Aid via Disk Utility Restarted my computer (between each step) Cleared Affinity Designer's data by holding down Ctrl while booting Uninstalled and re-installed Affinity Designer I've read that this is related to Apple's sandboxing. Regardless, it seems insane that the program can't interface with my hard drive. My email client, writing apps, and video games downloaded from the app store can, without any issues ever. Why can't Affinity? Also, if this is an App Store issue that is reoccuring, why not make a standalone version... I'd prefer that anyway.... Double bummer because I was so thrilled to be replacing Illustrator with an allegedly superior project at the cost of only $50. Hoping someone can help me.
  22. Hi, I am new to Affinity Designer, currently evaluating a trial version of Mac version, downloaded from Affinity website. A pink coloured outline appears on curves and shapes even when stroke is disabled or set to zero. This appears when a shape is clicked, or if mouse pointer is hovered over. The last 6 shapes that were selected or hovered retains the outline. Not sure if this is a setting in Designer that can be turned off. Would appreciate any help to turn off this annoying issue. Thanks!
  23. The panel for path component customization/settings suffers from several problems (APh & AD). In the german UI the variable descriptions are partly not readable since cut off, either make the panel wider/bigger or the text for those descriptions smaller, so they are readable. User variables can't be entered here (OSX El Capitan), those text fields are pretty unusable and do stop and block entry after just one character has been inserted. I also pretty much doubt that own defined vars there would be usable and work at all. - Generally the whole panel design there is a nightmare and needs a huge rework. The online help related to these topics is also more than poor and a catastrophic!
  24. Hello, We are migrating our forms overlay process to Affinity Publisher and are forced to work with Windows Meta Files (.wmf) as our overlay. We start with the original overlay file (wmf) to open/import into Affinity, then save to .afpub. Next, we would make any changes, as needed, then save, and export to .wmf. Affinity creates a new .wmf file, but it is significantly larger than the original, it also can't be opened The problem with the .wmf file Affinity created is that it can't be opened by other windows programs. While our application is proprietary, Affinity's files can't be opened or viewed using the usual programs, like paint, which seems to be the issue. Any tips or setting change suggestions, or even what the issue is would be greatly appreciated. I have attached the original (FINL-org.wmf) file, the (FINL.afpub) and the Affinity created (FINL-pub.wmf). FINL-pub.wmf FINL-org.wmf FINL.afpub
  25. I have seen some similar questions on the forum but have not come across precisely the same issue. I am creating files in Designer on iPad. They are text files. There are no images, but the text is (in some cases) heavily formatted. I need to send the files by email, to be printed out and viewed at the other end. When I print directly from Designer, everything looks great. Presumably, my colleagues will not want to deal with opening Designer files, so I am trying to export as PDF. On screen, the exported PDF file looks fine. However, when I print the exported PDF file, the text is “muddy”. Not sure how to describe it, but it looks like the text has been converted to outlines or the resolution is reduced, or both, or something else (see attached). I’m not sure WHERE in the process the kink exists, and would appreciate some help figuring it out. Any suggestions would be gladly appreciated!
