  1. I'm Affinity iPad newbie. Looked high and low and tried all I can, but.....how does one copy a selection to a new layer that can be blended with the original layer? Something I do easily and repeatedly in PS. Yes, I can do it on mainframe Affinity. Many thanks for the help!
  2. Hi, This happened twice today, my first day of using AP for work, so I'm learning as I go along. I'm discovering, learning things and I'm liking the program more and more. After 6-7 hours of work, a text block has locked up and will not unlock in any way. The layer itself doesn't have a lock icon on it. Locking and unlocking the layer does nothing. I have tried to find a solution online. It did happen to someone with a beta version and there was no solution then. I recreated the page. The same thing happened, this time with a different text block. I love the synergy between Photo, Designer and Publisher. This is a really a great piece of software, but I can't complete my work on it for now. I'm still working tonight recreating my work in a word processor (far less capable than Publisher). I suppose this is a bug. My apologies if I'm wrong. In either case, though, I have to know before I do real work with Publisher. Up
  3. Hello there! Been enjoying Publisher so much, all my work is done fast and with great quality. However I encountered a very serious bug that will destroy hours of effort in no time, it goes as the following: Here we have the following master page: I've made masks around every object like the paperclips, the folder, the pages. Then, I decide to duplicate the master page: After duplicating it, the duplicate removes the masks of objects, usually at random. The mask I made remains but like a dummy, un-cheking it and checking it again in the layers panel does nothing. Plus, this very same issue is applied to the original master page as well: Sometimes an object will disappear but will remain in the layers panel, not even showing in the resource manager tool. Has anybody else encountered this issue? Hours and hours of work can go down the drain with this issue.
  4. The existing way of locking the layer does not protect its contents from unwanted change. It only provides protection before selecting from canvas area and moving contents (https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/53707-lockingunlocking-layers/&do=findComment&comment=271924). But it would also be useful to ensure protecting the layer from unwanted contents modifications. For example, as it is solved in Photoshop, with "Fully" and "Partialy" lock (https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/moving-stacking-locking-layers.html). Related Threads
  5. UPDATED: paint brush DOES NOT WORK when painting a mask as shown in affinity tutorial 2 pixel layers, black mask on the top one, I select the brush and white paint and try to paint on the mask, nothing happens. Am I missing something? you paint masks with black and white to mask out or in things right? EDIT: can confirm even after watching affinity tutorial on masking, paint bursh does not work atall on a mask, it doesn't wor for painting white nor black, the only available thing is to "paint" the mask with the eraser tool, operation which is not reversable. Help, there must be something wrong
  6. When I move a symbol layer with the Move tool, its child layers may disappear. The disappeared layer went far away. Why does this happen? Is it a bug? Affinity Designer version: 1.8.3.641 ad_bug_20200726_181504.mp4 odoshi_bug.afdesign
  7. 369/5000 I don't know if this option is currently under development, but in my opinion it would be very useful to have a node-based editor as an option to the layer system (Have both options). Because I work with 32 bit exr files to be able to generate multipass compositing and it would be very useful to speed up the workflow without having to copy the same information to other layers. Thank you.
  8. I can't find a simple way to merge layers in Designer. This really needs to be a capability of all the Affinity products. What I'm expecting to happen is to select multiple layers and then right click and merge them, but I can't and certainly not without multiple steps through various menus and then it ends up trimming off parts even if I manage to combine them. I get this is a vector program, but I can do this with other programs and what should happen is that the combined outer shape should get new vector points to draw that shape, taking into account negative space. The closest thing I can get to is combining all the selected layers into a group and then rasterizing the group. That's not the same thing I'm asking for but at least close. It's also multiple steps more than it needs to be.
  9. Hi Mates, Is there anyway to rename the layer/layers with a hotkey? Tried to search in hotkey config but I didn't find any renaming option in Layer keys. Thanks!
  10. Hi folks. I searched for this question in the forums but couldn't find it. I have a masked layer and I am trying to use a brush to add more to the layer (ie. I want to reveal more of the item that is being masked). When I use a brush with the color black, it erases more of the basked object, rather than revealing it. What am I doing wrong?
  11. Why can I not paint in Affinity Photo? It is as if the program does not register that I am putting a black paint stroke on a layer...or any other color stroke for that matter.
  12. I recently had to re-set Affinity Photo to factory defaults and now whenever I apply a Live Filter Layer it becomes nested under another layer (whichever is highlighted). I used to always have it apply as a separate layer, now I have to manually go and click on "release filter" to get it as its own separate layer. There must be a setting for this in preferences but I can't find it or am I doing something wrong? TIA.
  13. Search and Replace should be disabled for protected (!) layers as default - or what means "lock"? Maybe there could be a switch to choose if search and replace should also be executed for text in protected areas, but it is very annoying if text is changed in proteced areas without an option to "protect" it really. For ex. I duplicate a layer to translate a text. Then i search and replace periodic text elements - and they are changed in protected layers too. This is annoying! Regards Ralph
  14. Hi, I have a terribly frustrating bug with renaming layers. I've seen this posted before, and the bug was said to be fixed in an update (which has already come). When typing a new name for layers, the text field constantly de-focuses itself – this happens so often, and so regularly, that naming layers is essentially a completely lost function for me. Layer naming is a critical function that I can not afford to lose. It can take me sometimes longer than an entire minute to successfully rename a single layer, artboard or group. I am using a MacBook pro with external monitor. Happens with a wired mouse, wireless magic mouse, external keyboard and MacBook Pro keyboard -- there is no known issues with any input or display device. This bug also happens with the latest version of AD from the Mac App Store, as well as with the Beta. The bug occurs on layers of all types, as well as groups and artboards. This bug, for me, is only observed in the Layers palette -- all other palettes are fine with input. In the attached video, you can see me renaming layers. In this video, the first layer is renamed correct. Then I add another layer and try to rename that one, to show how the chaos unfolds... While editing the name of this new layer, I never once press return to commit the name at any point in the video. The layer constantly loses focus, commits the incomplete name, and my typing fingers then punch random hotkeys... This is incredibly frustrating for work. I am a super loud proponent of AD, I love all that if offers... but this bug alone is enough to ruin my workflow and make designing in AD an absolute headache. Previous posts for reference: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/18336-new-layer-naming/-- Very last comment, it goes unaddressed. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/15832-bug-141-renaming-layers-broken/-- Caught in a beta, apparently logged but never addressed. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/24660-rename-layer-with-obstacles/-- Similar problem, and marked as fixed. I am pulling my hair out over this one. Thanks for all your hard work, -WV affinity-rename-layers.mov
  15. Hi, Recently bought all your app package. Right know i'm trying to make a manual and when added images to my new project sometimes app blocks that image layer and can't do anything with it, the only that i can do to solve this is "undo". Can you help me please? Thank's for your help and have a nice day. Salutations.
  16. When clicking blank area, selected layer will be deselected. This makes people confused. I know this behavior is inherited from Designer which is similar to Illustrator or DrawPlus. But would be nice if you could add an option not to deselect on clicking blank area. So former Photoashop/PhotoPlus users will be comfortable.
  17. Hey guys, a sorely needed feature in AP and AD is PS style Layer Linking. Layer Linking allows me to keep my layers grouped in one logical way, while allowing my to move/adjust certain layer attributes ACROSS groups, so I don't have to ungroup and reselect layers in other groups. It's a HUGE workflow enhancer, and it would be GREATLY welcomed in my process (and I'm sure others') and quest to get off the Adobe teat... Please consider this addition in all your apps, not only AP. If you have any other questions as to why it's valuable ask away... :D Thanks again for all your hard work and making an incredible tool!
  18. Hi there, Please can you help? Affinity Photo keeps freezing when I try to move a layer (i.e. about half a dozen mouse clicks after launching the software). The file size is small (less than 1MB). I'm running AF on a Wacom Studio Pro (Windows 10 Pro) with 16MB ram and 399GB free disk space. I have reinstalled the computer which has not helped this issue. Please can anybody point me towrads some things to try to resolve this? It is the only App crashing, everything else seems to be fine. Many thanks in advance for any help you could kindly offer.
  19. How can I create a unique shadow layer. I think in Affinity is the onlyest way, to coloured and gaussian blur the cut image for under layer? In PS I have the option to create a own layer from the level style. Something like that goes with affinity? In this simple example, it is not a problem, but there are complex scenes of where it would be a great help. Thanks for your Ideas Alexis
  20. How to crop an image on a selected layer - Affinity Photo v1.3.4? It seems the Crop Tool is a global function. How would I accurately crop an image in a selected layer?
  21. I frequently have objects with different parents which should always transform together, for example I can have an Erase object which cuts a certain layer and reveals itself underneath, something like this (but generally much more complicated): They are separated so I can export the layers individually. It would be good if I could save a selection of objects (whose relative positions, rotations, and sizes should always be maintained), similar to how snapshots or symbols are created. Then if I want to move them all I can easily select them all, by selecting the selection group.
  22. I have installed the new 1.7.2. and have opened the last file working on..... did see only grey place until I have unchecked all layers with MASKs! Mask totally do not work! Please how can I quickly return to previous version, this is a TOTAL SHOW STOPPER! Thanks Jindra
  23. A bit of a weird one. When I create a new layer and double click the title to rename it, if I type the new layer name too quickly the app seems to commit to the new name before I've even finished typing it. This seems to be especially prevalent when I try and rename it with anything starting with the letter "S". For instance, if I make a new layer and I want to rename it "Skyline", I double click the default name "(Pixel)" and quickly start typing "Skyline" I only get as far as "Sky" before it commits to the renaming. So I end up with a layer prematurely called "Sky" and accidentally proceed to toggle all of the keyboard shortcuts for the remaining characters in the word "L I N E" while thinking I'm still busy typing out the layer name. Hopefully this makes some kind of sense! Please let me know if you need more info.
  24. Ctrl+C cause crash when a group has a procedural texture live filter. It seems that this happens when a group has a vector or an image layer together. Group that has only procedural texture or a pixel layer together is ok.
  25. Would be nice if you cloud add this command to Publisher as well.
