  1. Hi, I am using AD to do some inking illustrations and it's doing the best job. better than Ai. However there is one little thing that hinders the work. When drawing with pen tool I don't always need to close a path (eg drawing a human figure) But after finishing one stroke as you move far away to start new stroke it automatically joins to the last point. In Ai what I would do is hit the shortcut 'p' on keyboard and I am able to draw a new stroke without closing the previous path. in AD as a workaround now after drawing a stroke with pen tool (unclosed path) I click 'v' for move tool and then click anywhere on canvas to get rid of the continuous path, and then again clicking 'p' for pen tool to draw new stroke. This adds 2 new steps and when you have to draw a lot it is kind of annoying and slowing you down. Is it possible to refresh the pen tool by clicking p so it drops the existing stoke and you are ready to draw new stroke. I hope I am able to explain. Let me know if I am missing any setting for this.( eg. keep path selected). Think of drawing something as simple as the attached jpg. thanks and regards, Raman

  4. Well I got a new idea but instead of writing Tons of lines I just decided to open a 2 questions poll to see if my idea stands. Well, can discuss about here but answering the question would talk better while the points will stand as complementary ideas. Blessings!
  5. Hello! I had this problem at least twice now, and want to report it. When using the brush repeatedly, while having pen pressure on, affinity designer freezes and crashes, after a few quick brush strokes. I tried it without the pen pressure and it works fine without it, i think. Only setting I have changes i that I disabled Windows Ink inside of Affinity Designer and on my tablet. I don't have any issues with pen pressure on Affinity Photo, so I personally think the vector brush tool in Affinity Designer with pressure sensitivity ON is just bugged. Hope you can reproduce this problem and fix it. Thanks for your time and patience! Extra Specs, just for good measure: GPU: RX Vega 56 CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 CPU Graphics Tablet: Huion Inspiroy 950P.

  7. First off I mostly enjoy drawing in affinity photo. I would want to supply a small list of features which is holding my work speed back tremendously and which I find would be great additions to the affinity apps: Hover Option for the eye dropper color pick: It would be great to have an option to enable a hover color pick without clicking on the canvas after pressing alt for picking up a color. It just needs to much timing and coordinating when painting fast to press alt (assigned to stylus keys) and then click the canvas. Sometime the canvas is hit first ending up to redo one step to try to choose the color again. I would want an option to always pick up a color as soon as alt is pressed and that click and dragging then opens up the more precise view for picking colors. Color wheel of the box version: It would be great to have an additional rectangular color wheel option. Quick solution to rotate workspace: button and drag to show a compass/indicator and rotate the workspace Straight lines for brush tool by dragging a line preview: option to draw straight lines with the brush tool at the actual recorded pressure level. The line should be previewed so that the drawing angle can be adjusted until the additional button for drawing these straight lines is released, would be immensly helpful for fine lineart, as the resulting line can be previewed and adjusted. Would be a great addition to the current draw from dab to dab. Direct slider option for width, opacity, flow and hardness in the brush toolbar: Option display the sliders without the need of clicking the drop down option to display the sliders Scale slider for the UI: Something I have noticed on the work with high dpi-monitors, is that the UI is appearing pretty small. That would be very helpful also if these apps are used on high dpi smaller monitors like a surface pro. Re-sizeable dockers: More flexibility to set up your workspace Brush performance improvements Photoshop Plugin Compatibility for photoshop panels
  8. “Bernadette” is a semi-realistic drawing that I created with Affinity Designer. AD is a (truly) excellent tool for vector graphics, but it also offers the best conditions for creating drawings and digital painting in the pixel range. more about this work: https://www.bodobe.de/zeichnung-mit-affinity-designer/ Best regards, stay healthy 😌
  9. Recently I have started painting in Designer. I use a Huion kamvas 16 pro. I have the software up on my main display and basically just the file up on my tablet. I use the tablet's pen on the tablet and configurate brushes and such with my mouse on the other display. Now I have experienced several (4) crashes, losing a lot of progress. These crashes don't work like regular windows crashes but rather make the program freeze in place but dont make it have that white overlay. The only option i have after that is force closing the program. At this point the program will ask if I want to save the file but I can't answer that because the pop-up is on screen for only a split second.

  10. Hey, developers. There is a suggestion to improve one function in the program. I think that many others who draw on iPad and use the symmetry function lack accurate positioning on canvas. The symmetry guides have no anchorage and there is no way to change the angle accurately or go back to the previous position. Please add either the snap or the possibility to position the symmetry guides by numerical values. Thank you very much.
  11. Hello folks, My name is Dennis. I created this pixelated self-portrait a few days ago. Started it in Dottable, a pixel-art app on a mobile phone, then traced it in Affinity Designer with the grid snap feature. Then I added a few grunge textures over masked areas, imported it into Affinity Photo, and finished it off with LUT filters and monochrome noise for a subtle paper-like feel. I like how precisely the applications work together and that you can add pixel-based textures directly in Affinity Designer without having to change the application, it integrates very fluidly into the workflow. Anyway, I hope you like the result. Dennis aka MrDoodlezz
  12. Hi, I'm hoping that somebody can help me. I am wanting to turn a colour photograph into a black and white pencil drawing, but I am struggling. I'm using photos of nature, and would love the finished product to look very natural, hand drawn. It doesn't seem to matter what I do, I just can't get the look I want. Many thanks, in anticipation of your help, Debbie

  14. Hi! Drawing using symmetry and mirroring works fine, there's a tiny bit of slow down sometimes, but nothing too serious. But drawing using only symmetry is a lot slower, to the point is almost unusable. I find it odd since I'd presume both functions would work the same. See the attached video for a visual sample of the issue. Happens on an iPad Pro 9.7" (2016) with the latest iPadOS (13.3.1) and latest Affinity Designer (1.7.3). Thanks! RPReplay_Final1580374739.mp4
  15. Every time while drawing with Wacom tablet intuos, Affinity Designer either stops drawing after switching windows either within it or to another app. If it doesn't stop it will just draw only straight lines strictly and wont pick any curved strokes. This is happening in both vector and pixel persona. It is extremely frustrating. I often have to restart it and even then after a while, the same problem occurs again. I have added a video in pixel persona highlighting what I am talking about. It's either a windows 10 problems Or it's an Affinity Designer problem. Kindly help resolve this please, it's really really frustrating. Affinity Designer 2019-06-19 09-49-52.mp4

  17. I'm new to AD, and having fun trying all possibilities, but I have 1 question: after drawing a line with the pen tool or with the pencil or brush tool I see no tool to alter the line width other then for the whole line. In illustrator this can been done with an excellent Width tool. The brush palet can only change it at beginning and end of the line; not in between. Searching the documentation and tutorials has not helped so far. This is an important tool for me, so please tell me I missed something!
  18. I've spent hours trying to figure this out, it might not even be a feature, but I can't change the color of any of the brushes I make. I tried to create a tree brush, a cloud brush and a leaf brush and they is no way to change the color they were created in. This sounds like it has to be a mistake on my part because I cant see any art program not giving you a way to change a brush color.
  19. Hey, here's another drawing from me. https://www.bodobe.de/mela-mondkind-mr-mautz-vor-dem-mond/
  20. Thought I'd share some of the stuff I just started creating in AP. Took me a bit to get past some interface issue but I'm getting to where I'm comfortable with a workflow in AP. These are just studies and not intended as finished work. Enjoy.

  21. Previously reported bug is still not solved in 1.7.2. At a certain time during working, brush drawing reactions change. Instead of drawing as I move my pencil on Wacom drush starts to react as in the attachment below. It takes only first and last point and draws a line between them. Black lines as seen.... blue strokes are done afterwards to show what I was really drawing on my Wacom (Pro Intuous).... Please start solving this issue reported about half a year before Thanks Jindra

  23. Hi guys! First off, I'm coming from an art background, so you see where my ideas are coming from and what I do with AP. You did an amazing job with the recent updates of the brush engine in Affinity Photo, I really like to play with it and the performance got much better for painting. My 2 cents: could you give the color picker (alt key when you use the brush tools) a little bit more thought? There is always a 1 second delay and it makes working slower than any other painting software I used so far. Also, the "magnifying glass effect" (for a lack of a better word) should be optional. Can't really imagine why I'd want to have that. The scrubby zoom could benefit from an option to not snap on 50% and 100%. Super useful often times but in some cases it may be better to turn it off. I know, Painting is not the main focus of the application, but it could become a real alternative for Illustrators and concept artists if small things like this would be solved. Look at how many painters are out there, just check ArtStation.com for example. Thank you Best wishes Flo
  24. First of all – photo doesn't remember tools settings, as pressure control is always off on startup and you need to turn it on every time you open Photo. Second – it seems Photo has a really hard time with pen pressure, especially when dealing with very light strokes. The line width doesn't change smoothly between values as it is expected to work. I think image explains it better than thousand words: Both pictures were drawn with my XP Pen Artist 12". On both the Brush size is set to 10px. Both brushes have hardness set to 100% with brush size controlled by pen pressure and nothing more (no flow dynamics etc.) yet on Photoshop brush strokes are much smoother and natural looking. I tried to compensate it with accumulation and hardness dynamic, but nothing seems to help. What's the point of having so detailed dynamic options if in the end you can't even have a smooth looking brush? I think this feature still needs a lot of work.
