  1. Without any serious vectordrawing app for the Ipad available, I’ve been waiting for Designer for iPad. When the release was announced yesterday I immediately bought my copy and started looking around to get a feel. I’ve been trying the triangular grids, and am not able to snap at them. When at one zoomlevel a point seems to be close to the gridpoint, after zooming in or out the same point is far away from the same gridpoint. See attached images. It looks like the displayed grid is some kind of approximation, and not exact. When zooming in or out I see the grid moving. I’ve tried with millimeters and points as units, with the same results. Triangular grid doesn’t stay in place and I can’t snap exactly to gridpoints. Using a normal square grids seems to be working perfectly, but for some drawings the triangular grid is very helpfull, if it would work well. Am I doing something wrong, or missing something? One other remark about the UI: In the snapping (and other) options, it’s not really clear when an option is toggled on or off. The white ‘off’ position is brighter than the blue ‘on’ position, making it easy for wrong interpretations and making me constantly re-check. I’ll get used to it, but it might help users if there’s an unmistakable distinction between the on and off positions.
  2. Hey everyone, hope that you are well. I have a personal blog where I like to create pixel art. Still learning but yeah, I'm very comfortable with Affinity Designer for my normal vector work so I decided to give it a try for raster images. The thing is: the cursor is driving me nuts! Whenever I increase brush size (2px and up) the "preview" pixel that is going to be painted is displayed top left of the cursor. This video may help illustrate what I'm talking about https://screencast.com/t/k8yET7ijH Is this normal or the expected way for the tool to work? I'm using square brushes.
  3. It's useful when drawing an icon set.
  4. serait-il possible de retrouver l'outil "grille déformante" comme dans Page Plus. Il manque aussi dans Affinity Designer
  5. When scrolling up down, the grid scrolls too? See screenshots

    X-Axis Grid Gutter not Working Right?

    So when setting the gutter for a grid, the behaviour for the first and second axis grids are different. For the first axis, the gutter is not set on the origin side, but for the second axis, it is. I attached a screenshot for clarification: I'm using Metal instead of OpenGL since it was glitchy.
  7. It would be nice if we could use percentage values in the grid manager. That way, if an artboard is resized, the grid resizes with it.
  8. I am trying to make a custom grid in Affinity Designer. The measurements are important :6 pixels wide evenly along the x axis. The y axis requires a bit more work: 6 pixels, 8 pixels, 6 pixels, 6 pixels, 8 pixels, 6 pixels ... and so on. The grid manager lets me go so far. In order to get the 6 pixels, I actually make the vertical spacing 12, and add in a divider. I have to add a 8 pixel gutter. It looks right, but it fails to line up. Here is my grid, and you’ll see that the drawing tool locks somewhere where it shouldn’t. And again: You’ll also notice that the first row at the top on the grid isn’t even zeroed (the origin is correctly set). The yellow dot indicates where the pen tool is pointing, BTW. So, if I draw some shapes using grid snapping, I get this: Which isn’t what I want. So, I end up having to use guides to create the grid I actually want, which causes more hassle (and is very longwinded and tedious to set up). In order to get spot on positioning, I have to use the guides manager to place the guides at exact locations. Guides clearly don’t do sub-divisions, so I can’t clearly see how each 12x20 block is split up. So, the questions are: 1 - Is this a bug? Why is the grid not snapping correctly? How can I make it so that the tools snap to the lines, and nothing else? I’ve used Snap Manager to only set snap to grid on. 2 - How can I create an irregular grid spacing without resorting to using guttering? 3 - How can I get the grid to start to coordinates 0,0? Right now, it looks like I’m losing top left positioning by about 2 or 3 pixels vertically? Thanks.

    Grids are Super Glitchy

    When I turn on the grid, it doesn't show up on some artboards. However, when I click on the title of an artboard, it shows up, but then the grid disappears everywhere else. To make it worse, when I go to select or move an element within that artboard, the grid disappears again. I'm not sure if this is just something specific to my system, so I've included the file I encountered the bugs on here. Now, how often do you guys release bug fixes? It seems like there are many existing bugs that haven't been resolved for a very long time. Perhaps you guys should focus more on stability than new features? Or just release more incremental updates focused on bug fixes instead of putting everything into one big release. Design Practice.afdesign
  10. Hi, In my work I often use isometric 2:1 grids. In Ai I used to create them myself and was very interested in the isometric grids in Ad, but the spacing does not work unfortunately, making it completely useless. Example: I created a grid with a 5mm spacing and draw a few guides with 5mm spacing. All the grid crossings should line-up with the guides. Hope this gets fixed, this was one of the reasons i bought Ad, together with the promised Mesh fill tool and Mesh warp/distort tool ;)
  11. Windows 10 Home 1809, Designer 1.7.0.209. In 1.6.5 there is an option to set a gutter between grid divisions - very useful for laying out a set of grids on one page/artboard, e.g. for icon design - but they seem to be missing from 1.7.0.209. Attached is a snapshot from both 1.6.5 - with gutter - and 1.7.0 - without gutter. I've tried various things in 1.7.0 but I can't seem to get the gutter options to appear. The only mention of gutters in the 1.7.0 Help is for column guides. However, if I create a document with gutters in 1.6.5 they are still evident when I load the document into 1.7.0 and they can be altered. Are they deliberately missing for new 1.7.0-created documents - and if so, why - or have they gone accidentally missing, or have I not used the correct options?
  12. Hello, I have searched well in the ipad affinity designer application and on the internet, I can't find the option to display a grid, I think I have that on the mac version there is a possibility to display a grid, but if it also exists on ipad, I didn't find it. Thank you in advance for your help.
  13. Windows 10 Home 1809, Designer 1.7.0.209 NOTE: Please ignore the export issue in this post. I was put right on that but the grid/guides getting reset is still an issue. I have a document - attached - where, when I delete the "Backgrounds" layer, the grid is reset to the default and my export slices are deleted. Try: * loading the document; * looking at how the grid is set-up (11px); * going to the Export persona and looking at the export slices (should be 27, not all included in export); * then go back to the Vector persona and delete the "Backgrounds" layer. The grid has now gone back to the default and all of the manually-created export slices (named with "slice" and "Icon") have gone. What have I done wrong? Or, what bit of the functionality am I not aware of? Surely the grid and export slices can't be 'part of' a layer? That sounds wrong to me. The slices were created from the rectangles in "Backgrounds" but I don't think the slices should be deleted when I delete the rectangles as the rectangles were only created because the "Add Slice" function doesn't - in my experience - snap to the grid or guides so that was the only way I could create exact slice positions/sizes without a lot of manual work. Even if there's some odd thing about export slices that I don't know about, I really don't think the grid should be reset when I delete a layer. On a related note, when I have the original document and I set the "Backgrounds" layer to not be visible in export, items within it still show up in export, which is a bit weird. I've tried all kinds of ways to get the rectangles from showing up in the export - including setting them to invisible individually - but they just won't go away. Might be a related thing, or might be something else entirely, just thought I'd add it. P.S. After switching off - and making transparent - everything to do with the layers in "Backgrounds", when I try to export the "Icon" slices I can see the icons on the canvas but they're blank in the Slices studio and I just get 'empty' SVGs on export. P.P.S. Just dragging the "Backgrounds" layer out of the artboard will reset the grid but the export slices remain. grid-and-slices-on-209.afdesign
  14. The current possibility to set the origin of the Grid and Ruler is great - thank you. But would it be possible to allow a quick and easy setting of the origin according to the set Margins? For example, at define margins in document settings, check the separate checkboxes "Set Grid / Ruler origin to margin".
  15. Something that is missing from Adobe Illustrator, and would be good in Affinity Designer are Technical Illustration Tools:- Isometric Grid, allowing constraint along 30º as well as vertical Isometric elipses (35º Elipses, with minor axis constrained to Grid Axis) Ability to join circles and ellipses with a tangent line tool, connecting one circle to another with a line. Ability to delete line or curve up to another intersecting line / lines / curves with a key stroke. 1 Draw a line or curve, 2 Draw two additional lines / curves, both overlapping original at different locations, 3 Select the middle part of the first line / curve 4 Press a key to delete the part of the line / curve up to each of the intersecting lines curves. 5 Option to select multiple lines / curves and perform this to all of them at the same time would be living the dream :-) Thanks Gaz 3dtp Ltd
  16. Hi there! I've run into some trouble when I set up a document with several artboards: The individual grids for each artboard don't seem to work as expected (maybe I have wrong expectations...). This is how to reproduce the problem: Create a new document. The option "create artboards" needs to be selected. Create a new artboard be clickdragging the artboard title while holding the ctrl-key. Now resize the newly created artboard in width (e.g. 1920 -> 1600px). Activate the first artboard and open the "Grid and Axis Manager". Set up a basic grid of any spacing (e.g. 160px). Activate the second artboard and open the "Grid and Axis Manager" again. Again set up a basic grid that is different from the grid of the first artboard (e.g. 105px). Enable "Show axis editing handles". The grid shown on the second artboard is different from the grid of the first artboard, but has a random horizontal offset. Subsequently nothing snaps horizontally (only vertically). Bug or feature? Best, Volker
  17. I want to work using a dimetric grid with the "Create plane set" option checked however I can't figure out what spacing is required to get the grid lines to intersect on the different plane sets. Screengrab attached to illustrate what I'm talking about. Absolutely love the way the grids/plane sets work for isometric and really hope it's possible to find the formula to get it to behave with non-isometric projections.
  18. I don't know if there is a reason this isn't possible or if I am missing something, but I can't get the plane set of any grid type but isometric to align with each other. When I make an isometric projection of a cube every plane of the grid just aligns and all the faces of the cube can join like this: But when I make a dimetric projection the planes don't align with each other and the faces of the cube can't align with the grid: I know I can just join the faces together anyway, but then the cube wouldn't align with the whole plane set. I don't know if this is possible, but I think a solution would be to shift the plane consisting of the first and up axis, and the plane consisting of the second and up axis down or up to align with the plane consisting of the first and second axis. I also found this topic about the same problem, but the solution given there is to alter the spacing of the up axis instead of shifting the whole plane. This would also alter the proportions:
  19. Hello, first off: wow, this app evolves quite quickly! Kudos to the dev-team. I always work with grids, so I was wondering why it doesn't appear on all pages? Maybe I’m doing something wrong? Screenshot show page 1 & 2 — but the grid only shows on page 1. Made a new document, same problem… kind regards! Benjamin
  20. Morning, Am I missing something here, or can I not snap slices to the grid?! I have created a slice, turned snap to grid on, and now am trying to conform that slice to the grid, but it's no snappy. Pretty much all snap options are on, but I just can't snap it! Cheers Wayne
  21. Hi everyone, There is a bug in AD 1.5.1.43 (and probably earlier versions) in which when choosing the Pixel preview mode on the top toolbar the artboard background and bounds slides off by a large amount. This offset affects slices in the export persona as well. It makes it pretty much impossible to work on pixel-perfect images as the Export persona will offset the artboard randomly too. Please view the attached file, Thank you.
  22. Publisher 1.7.0.145 Launch Publisher Create a new document from the default settings Baseline Grid Manager > enable Use Baseline Grid Snapping Manager > enable Snap to baseline grid Save your blank document Quit Publisher Reopen Publisher by double-clicking the test document saved a moment ago The Snap to baseline grid option has been turned back off, although the other settings remain as they were previously. It doesn't seem to matter if you use View > Snapping Manager, or the Snapping controller in the toolbar across the top of the workspace.
  23. Hi dear reader, When trying to use ”grid” in one of the affinity apps they are only showing in the bottom left corner. And when moving the document the grid moves slower. I can obviously draw my own grid. I think this is a serious bug
  24. Hi, I would love you to consider adding a Phi Grid as an additional option to the existing cropping overlays. As you probably know, it is based on the Golden Mean just like the Golden Spiral but I find it more useful than the later for landscapes and other types of images. Thanks for all the outstanding work you are doing!
