  1. Hi, Say I'm drawing a character, who's made of several body parts, each being a vector object in a separate layer. Then I want to add self-shadow to this character, using yet another vector object (black with low opacity). I currently have to apply the shadow to each body part individually, duplicating the master shadow and clipping it under each body part layer. Is there a way to apply this shadow to the whole character in one go? As I tested: it seems impossible to clip the shadow to a group of objects. When sliding the shadow below the group, it is added as a member to the group instead.
  2. Similar to this: The idea is to add a setting panel for colors that allow to edit the color of gradients, and objects in general, simultaneously or singular Adding other options for the settings, as saturation or brightness Most important for SVG format files
  3. How do I convert afdesign documents/objects to artboards? I would like to combine several Designer documents (all small variations of my logo) into a single document with multiple artboards. I've watched the Desktop Designer Tutorial for artboards, searched the forum for 'designer convert object artboard' and read the "Affinity Designer Help" pages on artboards but can't get any of the methods to work. The Layer -> Convert Object to Artboard command is always grayed out. I tried the cut/paste technique (from the Tutorial) but it just pastes the object into the document (not part of the selected artboard) and the pasted lines & shapes are all fat and distorted. I know this should be easy but I've spent several hours (unsuccessfully) trying to figure it out. Any help will be most appreciated.
  4. When viewing any of several pages with multiple layers, the layer panel only shows a single object. Up/down arrows have to be tapped to view other objects. Have tried, locking, unlocking, show, show all, etc. Is there a way to display all the objects on the page? Is there a restriction that keeps the panel stuck on showing only one object?
  5. How can I easily "mirror" or "reflect" an object in Affinity Designer? Also In Adobe Illustrator there are many Effects (Dropdown Menu) to choose from Adobe Illustrator > Effects > Warp > Arc How can I choose a certain Effect in Affinity Designer I want to Warp an object or grouped object to give it an Arc (curved) appearance ? Thx
  6. How do I avoid white pixels between two snapping objects. When I export to Photo there is a lighter pixel-line in between the two objects
  7. Hi! I am loving affinity designer in comparison to ai...however, there is something so easy that I can't figure out for the life of me! I have a doc/file that has many objects and each has a lot of layers. These layers aren't ordered in groups; therefore, I need to find a select group of layers among the many. I know that I need to click the Shift and have the multilayer button active and " keep clicking through the all the layers to select them"... the problem is that some of the layers have tiny object and I can't get the cursor to acknowledge through the mess of affinity's blue lines (the ones showing that you've selected something). The bottom line...I am hoping that there is a way to just use a marque, a selection brush, or whatever to just selection the object in one motion. When I've tried to do this is puts the marching ants, but none of the coordinating layers are high lighted. I would be most grateful for any advice! Bernie
  8. When an object is selected it has the blue transformation handles. When moving an object with the keyboard arrows, or nudging it, is there a way to have those handles disappear so that I can see finer details about where I'm placing the object? I feel like this functionality was working when I first installed Affinity, but now it seems to have disappeared. Thanks!
  9. Hello, Is there an option to select that an object doesn't have to be printed?
  10. Does anyone here know if it's possible to do an 'object count' in an Affinity Designer document? Thanks in advance, Martigny EDIT: I forgot to mention that I know I can count the objects in a layer, but I'd like to be able to count the objects in a whole project.
  11. Hey guys, When snapping is on, when you move an object, the distances between that speicifc object and the object around it appear. The problem is that if two object are too close, the distance is hidden by one of its handlers. Maybe move it a bit to the left or right so they don't overlap? I attached a screenshot to show what I mean. Thank you
  12. Hello, In Affinity Designer I noticed that whenever I change the Constraints configuration for an object the "outer" effects on it stop working. In the linked video I have an outline shadow for each "row" on my design. When I change the constraints the shadow disappears - you can see a very fine line where it should be, like if it's been cropped. I have tested this with Outline Shadow and Outline Glow with large radius to the same result. Inner Shadow and Inner Glow are not affected by it. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2273140/ad-windows10-drop-shadow-constraint.mp4 Thanks
  13. Hello Affinity Team, Wizaerd already created a topic last year, but he never made a feature suggestion. I know that 3D in Photoshop is basic, but it still it does it job. Otherwise I've to work in other software, like blender, to create and render them to import into a project. I would rather have an "All-in-one" solution and ditch Adobe software, as far as I can.
  14. This may be a very silly question. Is there a way to automatically convert a vector image created with rgb colours into CMYK without having to select each individual colour and changing it manually? No I don't want to convert it when saving it but to action it on the page.
  15. The object was created in one layer. I created another layer, drew some other objects. The first object though with stroke and fill just disappear, even in the outline view. The only way I can select it is to go to the layer to select but still it is not visible. I have to drag that particular layer on top so the object become visible. I have attached the clip if the explanation is uncleared. What is the problem? selection.mov
  16. Affinity Designer question pertinent to scaled technical drawings (and other purposes): I'm trying to do a mock-up of a garden fence extension I'm building. I've drawn fence posts to scale. I have the pen tool selected and I'm trying to initiate (via initial mouse click) a perpendicular pen line a specific distance from the top of the fence post (which I've depicted with a simple rectangle). A green vertical highlight line shows up over the rectangle's left side when I hover over the left side of the rectangle, and a green dot appears on that line that follows the cursor as I move it up and down vertically on that line. But I don't see a way to determine the relative coordinates of that sliding dot to the upper corner of that object (or preferably any vertex or corner), which makes life harder. Is there some way to easily see (in realtime), the numeric coordinates relative to an object vertex, as the cursor moves along some highlighted vector of an object? Otherwise, I have to try to figure out how to create and calibrate rulers and guides aligned some point of reference germane to any object I want to measure. And even with that, it seems like I have to do math to determine the intra-object coordinates. The app is internally keeping track of positions and calculating coordinates for numerous reasons so seems like it would be fairly trivial to add an a coordinate display to menu bar or an info pane showing precise realtime coordinates of the the aforementioned relative positions. I believe it would be of enormous benefit to alll who do technical drawings with Designer. If there isn't already a feature like this, one way I can envision to do it, that would quick, intuitive and convenient for end-users, from UI perspective: If the horizontal and vertical rulers could be 'scrolled' (like pulling out a builder's measuring tape, sort of) to move each respective ruler's zero-point (as opposed to how it is now, where the rulers' (0, 0) is permanently affixed to the left corner of the canvas). Then, as the cursor moved, the virtual crosshair makers that track the cursor along the rulers could be quickly pre-calibrated to determine cursor's relative position to any object-in-focus (e.g. where ruler center's were aligned), without the user having doing math to figure out object-relative positions. A numeric coordinate display would show the precise values in the selected unit-of-measure. While calibrating the ruler's 0-point, the app would highlight object sides, distances, relative positions, as it does already when moving the cursor around the page. This would make it easy to calibrate the ruler center positions to any object(s) on the page, and be a very flexible way to let users measure anything on the canvas, any way they want to.. There may be other ways to accomplish that already with the product (but not sure how easily). I'm pretty new to using Designer, and isn't obvious to me how to do what I want, even through searching through menus and tabbed panels.
  17. Hello, I'm not sure if this is a bug in the program or my side (or even some setting), but since 1.6 (and all the updates since) the selection tool have lost serious accuracy when I try to select something. For example in this picture (below) I may try to select the text and the tool select the photo next to it. This only happen when I'm zoomed out for a good amount like being able to see the whole page (A3+) but still not that much zoomed out to risk object check boxes overlay. Before 1.6 I was able to do a pixel perfect selection but since I also got the windows 10 fall creators update around the same time, I'm not sure if this really is an affinity problem (for example this windows update crippled my wacom bamboo and now it zoom in at random on it's own). If this is a bug ok just reporting, but if there is a way to fix it please let me know. Thanks
  18. I selected objects and group them, but one object (head) changed position. See the short video. I am using Affinity Designer for long time and this is first time happened. Affinity Designer 1.5.5 iMac 27-inch, 2017 (see the attachments) Thanks Tom affinitydesigner-mistake.mp4
  19. I've got a few shapes where, at some point in the past, I've flipped them horizontally. To my surprise, when I filled them with text, the text was also reversed. Is there a way to tell Affinity to not keep that information hanging around, and just make the text object normally? Personally I feel like it shouldn't behave this way (if I wanted reversed text, I'd flip it after adding the words). There are work arounds, like combining some geometry, even if it doesn't alter the shape, will resolve the issue. Thanks!
  20. hey guys, I just noticed that the SH option to resize object only works if you keep the original height of the file. If at some point you increase the stage height, and if you're trying to re-dimension an object to to stage height using "sh", it will resize it to the original document height, instead of the new one. Cheers, Chris
  21. In Affinity designer, every time you make an object, it create it own layer for it. Is there a way to change this?
  22. There's a small problem when resizing an object by dragging the handlers. When you use the corner handlers, sometimes you have to hold SHIFT to resize an object proportionally, other times you have to avoid holding SHIFT to resize it proportionally. Every time it's different Cheers, Chris
  23. How do I make tiny movements of an object without typing in values? Do I hold something else down and tap arrow keys?
  24. I love how in AD you can crop anything you place on a layout. But in AP when you use the crop tool you only get the option to crop the whole document. Is there any way to do the AD crop in AP? thanks!
  25. If I need to select many objects quickly, is there an option to select by color?
