  1. Have created a few LUTs (Look Up Tables) using affinity photo and also downloaded a lot of them from the internet, Can select a specific LUT from Adjustmens > LUT > Load LUT and use it as an adjustment layer, but if we have hundreds of them then we need to select one at a time to preview how it would look on the image it would be great if we could see a preview how all of them would look when applied to the image, and then be able to select the one that we like
  2. 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
  3. I am learning the in and outs of Designer and love it. I find myself using it more than Illustrator for projects now. One of the (few) problems I'm having is that when I will lock a layer then continue working and I will realize that the layer was somehow unlocked and I am editing in what was supposed to be a locked layer. For instance today I placed a scanned reference image and locked it. Then I created a pixel working layer on top of it. After a couple dozen brush stokes I realized that the brush strokes were being created on the supposedly locked layer. And the locked image layer had been rasterized. This has happened before when working strictly in a vector project. Is this a bug or do I need to do something else besides clicking the lock icon to truely lock a layer? I am using Windows 10 and a Huion drawing tablet.
  4. 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!
  5. is there a way to create “half drop” repeat patterns in version 1.9 or does it limit you to only single image simple even patterns? How about patterns with multiple images? Also, Can I import other elements from another file or another layer to incorporate it into the repeat pattern layer?
  6. I want to copy a small square portion of a layer. I draw a marquee using the box marquee tool I copy I paste It pastes a new copy layer not the marquee selection . I can mask or fill but i cant seem to copy the selection. I'm obviously making a very basic error but i cant find it.
  7. 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
  8. I have absolutely no luck with locking layer. It makes me wonder if my understanding of what it is supposed to accomplish is what I think. Let's go back to the beginning. First I used Adobe programs. This became too expensive as a rental for a non-professional like myself, especially after I closed my main business. At the time the cost was incurred when you bought it, not a rental fee. The small projects I do are not money makers. I switched to Affinity because the cost was more reasonable. Now to the problem: If I save a document and reopen in Designer items will move from where I placed them. I am working on a large document and this is infuriating. Now there is this locking function but it seems useless. If a page element is locked I cannot edit it. My only option is to unlock all. When I do that what appears to happen is that everything in this rather long document is unlocked. There is no other option here. Do I really have to go though the whole document some 100 pages and re-lock every element? Every time I want to make a minot change? First of all it seems inane that if I leave elements unlocked and reopen the document a day later many items are now shifted from where I placed them. Pardon me but this seems unless. Almost every page of my 160 page document now needs adjusting. Going back to Pagemaker I have never encountered such an annoying flaw. As it stands it seems like every time I want make a change on one page I am now required to go over may whole document of 154 pages seeing what was unlocked and now moved. If you place something in Word and save it and come back things are where they were when you save it and this was certainly the case when I used Pagemaker and Adobe.
  9. 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
  10. Sometimes I need to expand an image to change its ratio. In gimp I would use the "Canvas Size" function first and then "Layer to image size". In Affinity Photo I have been able to resize the canvas but found no option to change layer sizes. Am I missing something?
  11. Hi everyone Is it possible in Affinity Publisher to create one layer system so that it applies to all pages (existing and new)? In other words - I create two layers: Layer1 and Layer2. And from now on all pages in the current document have the same set of layers. The new pages will also have the same set of layers. Thank you for your help
  12. I have a Macbook Pro 16 with lots of Ram. I updated to Big Sur and then latest Affinity for Big Sur. Now I sometimes have trouble selecting layers. I have to tap them several times. Also Affinity photo is much slower. Help!
  13. I searched the forum but did not find this addressed (maybe my search was bad, so please link to topic if I missed it). Opening eps files in different applications always comes with some surprises. This screen dump shows the same eps file opened in AD (1.8x) and Adobe Illustrator CC2018. And I notice a few things. I have converted the document color space to RGB/8 sRGB in both applications and files. As you can see on the screen dump RGB color is slightly different from AI to AD (AI is on the left, AD on the right). As you also can see, layer are better organized in AI than AD. Layers are actually completely missing in AD... (I also tried in 1.9 beta AD but same same). Does anyone have some ideas how to make import/open of eps files in AD preserve layer hierachi better? And get color to match across applications? Or link to a topic that discusses this issue? Thanks in advance.
  14. Hi, I want to make an object (green square) with a transparent hole inside of it. How do you do this? I can't seem to find the option for this So basically a square, with a circle inside of it, but you cannot see the fill of the circle as well as the fill of the square. So a square with a hole inside. In my attachment the circle is black, however I want it gone. Black hole that should be transparent.afdesign If I try to make the circle a mask of the layer, I get a round circle...? How do I inverse this? Removing the circle not the green square? Masked square that gives a round green circle.afdesign
  15. Dears, I found the following IMHO bug in Affinity Publisher, when I am placing normal/regular layer between layers from master page but located in regular page. This layer is later not editable and not deletable at all. Entering into this bug, one have to delete complete page and make it from scratch. I am attaching you komplete minimal project representing this problem, as well as screenshots - AFF-PUB-1.8.5.703.bug.zip. Please have a look at layer called Image2 and try to move it, change it or delete it. Detailed steps to reproduce the problem: 1. Create master page with two layers: a) lower layer with image 1, b) text box in upper layer 2. Use this master page on any page - screenshot Step-1 3. Optionally fil the text in text bon on the regular page 4. Drag next image to the page, so the image covers the text - screenshot Step-2 5. Move the second image 2 layer to be located between the image 1 and text box layer to move the image 2 behind the text - screenshot: Step-3 I such a case I am expecting I can do everything with the layer image 2. But I cannot do anything even delete this layer. Please have a look on this matter. Thanks in advance and regards, Seweryn. P.S. Generally your product is fantastic. AFF-PUB-1.8.5.703.bug.zip
  16. It seems the app doesn't scale completely with MacOS. When I dragged a layer in the layer section, not the clicked one moved but the one above it. I'm using Mojave 10.14.6 with upscaled display to maximum.
  17. I can no longer move layers by dragging them! I can't clipping ! I'm in great trouble! help! !! !!. I am Japanese. I am not good at English. I'm sorry.
  18. I can't move layers. Watch the video! IMG_0715.MP4
  19. I am experiencing a bug with the latest Affinity Designer version (1.8.5.703) : When exporting to a PDF file, the different layers are not exported as they should ... Once the PDF file is opened in Adobe Reader (and Adobe Illustrator) the layers preview pane does not show any layers. The bug is repeated as many times on Windows 10 version and this on two different computers. I specify that the bug occurs by using the menu> file> export ... as well as by using persona export ... This is particularly annoying when exporting PDF files with CutContour and cutting printing ... I hope you will solve the problem without difficulties and wish you good luck ... receive my full consideration. Guillaume
  20. HI, I noticed that the same objects in the layers menu have a different size. Exactly every other one has changed size. It is a bit of a nuisance for viewing foreign projects. Robert
  21. Hi. How can I "connect" (and "disconnect") a mask to his layer, to modify the layer (rotate, enlarge, etc.) into its mask without rotating, enlarging, etc. the mask ??? Is there a symbol or something that shows the layer "connected" or "disconnected" to its mask ? In few words: if "connected", each modification affects either the layer and the mask...if "not connected" it will affect the layer and not the mask. I hope that is clear... I'm sure it's easy and on my watch, but it's driving me crazy Thank you!
  22. Hi, I'm going crazy. I have 60 motifs in different sizes for a presentation. I have an APhoto file 4k-UHD. All images loaded into the file -> 60 layers. Each layer has its own name. Now I want to output ALL layers in 4k-UHD format with one click. I can not do it. Maybe the program is too simple for that and I make it too complicated? In Photoshop I would be finished for a long time. In the meantime I have started to export EACH layer individually. But I can't do that in time because the export takes forever. Now, I need to move the praesentation to next week :-(
  23. Hi, can I let the alpha channel of the fill color of 2 paths (each on an own layer) be operated with by a selected mask operation such as subtract? How? Thanks, u&i
  24. EXPORT PDF for printing. (have three layers) -> When I open it at Affinity Designer, there are three layers. -> Open at Adobe Illustrator and there's no layer. I have to deliver a pdf(with layers) to someone who uses Adobe, but I can't. Please check!
  25. HI to all I am try to open file coming from Illustrator and Designer lost all the Group and Layer, in complex file is quite a big problem. There is a solution? Thank you for any help 14.ai
