  1. I have been using a workaround for when I need to make lettering thicker, since there is no path offset tool yet. I add a thicker stroke and then I expand the stroke and then I add them together to complete it. However, when I am expanding the stroke it is adding gaps in random places, so I end of with random spots in the middle of my letters. Picture 1 is before I add them all into one. Picture 2 shows a close up on the "s", also before I add them into one. Picture 3 shows a close up on the "s" after I "add" them. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
  2. Hello all! Maybe this question was already here. The problem is this. I made a texture line curve by brush with my tablet pen. The brush style is simple, it's a solid engrave line, from the brushes engraving stack under number 3 from the top. Then I want to convert this curve to an object. I have tried it by clicking Expand Stroke but haven't got any. The curve still remains a curve. But if I would make my curve by the solid line style I got an object after using Expand Stroke feature. Please, could you explain and help me?
  3. Hi just had to prep some final art, expanding strokes to maintain integrity down the line and had a seriously destructive result from one instance (See photo) and another issue related is redundant points when using boolean operations ie when the software places two nodes/points exactly on top of one another.. very annoying and leading to unnecessary work. Also the same thing occurred on the opposite side/corner to this one. Stroke was set to outside. Anyone else experiencing this issue?? Cheers
  4. I found interesting thing with expanding stroke with arrowheads. If I trying to expand stroke of unclosed path with center alignment - everything is okay, but when I using inside or outside stroke alignment, shape is losing arrowheads. It's a problem because unclosed path with different stroke alignment looks same whatever is it center or inside/outside. This problem same for both Designer versions PC or iPad.
  5. In addition to the existing bugs in the contour tool and expand stroke, visual artefacts also appear! S_curve_example_BUG_contour_tool.afdesign S_curve_example_BUG_expand_stroke.afdesign S_curve_example.afdesign S_curve_example_BUG_contour_tool.mp4 S_curve_example_BUG_expand_stroke.mp4
  6. BUG REPORT - What happens when I Expand the Stroke. Everything I tried doesn't work on this particular font and rasterizing is not an option for me due to professional publishing needs. The only workaround for me on this one was taking it into another software to make the paths. I wish there was a fix for this in Affinity. This issue really needs to be fixed or at least some way to have a viable workaround. Font is Krupper Additionally, I first noticed the font was breaking from Publisher when exporting to PDF. So I tried to convert to curves in Desginer which causes the font to break. R
  7. Hello, When I draw a path that has a stroke that varies by pressure, "layer > expand stroke" defines an area smaller than the existing stroke. It looks like adding a stroke width to this new stroke can help as a workaround, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything. Thank you for the great product! affinityExpandStroke.mp4
  8. Hi there, just wondering if we're going to see a way of converting brush strokes to outline, in fact... making the whole outlining of artwork easier? Or am I missing something? At the moment having created a pattern with a new brush stroke I cannot convert to fill or outline it. thank you for any suggestions r
  9. Hello everyone, i have a little proble with expand stroke and i don't know if this is a bug or not. When i try to expand a dash line i got a solid line; i used to work with Illustrator and when i do that it work fine, i got all my little dot. I don't know what to do, if someone can help me it will be great. (Sorry for my bad english. Not my native language.)
  10. 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
  11. You guys are saying that graphic designers will love the accuracy of the expand stroke feature when it can't even properly expand the stroke of a 45/45/90 triangle that's been rotated 45°. Is this a bug? Please fix this asap (and please add envelope distort and offset path as well). affinity_problem_lq.mp4
  12. After the 1.6 update, the expand stroke function that wasn't accurate with rounded rectangles before, now is completely broken (see screenshot of a rounded rectangle, circle, and a cog). Upd. It seems to happen only in certain affinity files, not all of them. Regards, Anton
  13. Designer 1.7.3.481, Windows 10 Home 1909. I have an A5 document (attached) that is set for just 12 DPI (don’t ask why). When I add a curve to it with a reasonably thick width (considering the DPI) and expand it I get a weird result, see attached GIF. It’s not a major problem for me as I’m just experimenting but I think it might need looking at. (This is probably related to other expand stroke issues that have already been raised.) very-low-res-expand-stroke-oddity.afdesign
  14. Recently had a colleague asking about my thoughts on switching to Affinity Designer from Ai. I've been using Designer since 1.2 and overall really love the program, but this question reminded me of some of the common issues that come up for me daily. So my response was that is was a great program that can replace Ai… but there are some issues so I can't fully recommend you do it. The main issues that stop me from fully recommending the app are: 1. Expand stroke can create truly horrible results, especially if you have variation in the stroke pressure. From excessive points (no s
  15. In the attached image, the top 'example' word is Artistic Text. the bottom 'example' word is text that has been converted to curves and then had the strokes expanded with the menu item under 'Layer.' The L is very off, but other letters are also visibly (although slightly) distorted as well. If there is a setting that bumps up the accuracy of this, then please let me know. Otherwise, the one trick I know to reduce this is to expand the stroke when the shape/text is really, really big (multiply the size by a huge factor) and then size it back down by the same factor afterwards. I do n
  16. So I'm using pressure on a stroke. I was having issues with it distorting when using "Expand Stroke" (where smooth curves were changed to chunky edges). In another post on this forum, someone suggested enlarging the object and then expanding the stroke. In doing so, I discovered this super bizarre bug. See the attached images I show when I zoom in to one of the corners. I also show the expanded stroke and all the countless nodes. This is unusable if I ever want to expand this kind of stroke. Am I doing something wrong?
  17. In this short quick tip i'll demonstrate how to create simple parallel outlines with expand stroke and geometric functions in Affinity Designer. Parallele-Außenkonturen-720.mp4
  18. Expand stroke on simple object as 0.8pt rounded rectangle is not possible. Object deforms.
  19. Hello Everyone ! Hello Team ! i'm maybe wrong asking this, if so, please forgive. Publisher is the master piece in my workflow and it does quite good vector operations but i've noticed i can't expand strokes. Okay, i maybe wrong here or asking too much but very soon the software will go public and there are peoples out there who will buy Publisher only expecting to do few with it and expand strokes is not something of too much luxury to add in there. As i said, i maybe wrong but Serif team should teach me on this if i'm wrong, but if it is something another user have noticed an
  20. I was working on a very simple design with the pen tool. I got to the point where I needed to expand the strokes of those paths, and I ended up getting a very unexpected result. Even though they are very simple shapes, the curves got distorted after being expanded. I tested this with Designer 1.6.5.135 as well as the latest beta release. I've attached a couple of PNGs illustrating the issue and the file I was working on so you can take a better look at it. expand strokes.afdesign
  21. After I use Expand Stroke the outline of the shape I expanded becomes distorted. See attached video. Thanks! Expand Stroke Issue 01.mov
  22. Hello, dear developers. First of all - I like your program, it is more comfortable than illustrator or Corel draw. But thing is - Designer doesn't have the required functionality to normally offset and expand strokes, while illustrator and Corel draw do. I wanted to design a logo with "luminescence" effect - like soft glow - by outlining, offsetting and expanding strokes. With illustrator I could do it, while in Affinity Designer I can't. I tried "outline" effects, but then I discovered that I just can't expand it. I probably could create something "resembling" to desi
  23. Happy new year guys! I am in the middle of creating my first font (handwritten) and use Affinity Designer for designing the digits. However, the process is very tenacious right now. Since I'm new to font development, this is my current approach and setup. I created a document with a growing number of artboards, one artboard for each possible digit, ligature, symbol, and so on. I created each digit using a stroke with slightly varying line widths at the beginning and end. The program into which the digits are imported works with PDF, SVG, EPS among other (to me u
  24. I was working on a logo recently and noticed this: When a stroke with a Pressure Profile which also has rounded endpoints is Expanded, the nice smooth endpoint is only converted to a polygon. This happens no matter the scale, color, stroke profile etc. I know there has been a lot of discussion about the Expand Stroke function of Designer but did not see this particular issue addressed. This is a very critical function that Designer must get right if I'm to kick Adobe to the curb once and for all.
  25. Dear Affinity Team, I'd like to preface this post by first outlining that you should be very proud of the care you take in delivering programs with a good user friendly UI. I respect and thank you for that aspect. Unfortunately though, as a newer customer of both Designer (and Photo), I would like to express my frustration and confusion over the absence of two functions in Designer: 1. Curve/Path offset. 2. Accurate, reliable stroke expanding. I really am not wanting (or aiming) to appear as another "me too" whinge over these two hotly argued shortfalls. But I am having immense
