  1. Is there a way to offset the path of an object (to create a new path / object that isn't just a scale of the first object)? Please see attached: Thanks!
  2. I would love to see a contour / offset option. On some shapes you can make a smaller version of the same (see rectangle) for an offset outline, but for the letter R, and other shapes, making a scaled down version would not work. (let me know if I am missing this option)
  3. Hi, I want to make a repeating pattern and saw a Photoshop tutorial ( https://binged.it/2tZ6SDb ) where they used an offset function to do this. I've tried searching for something similar in Affinity Designer but cannot seem to find an equivalent? Is there something I've missed? istring
  4. 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.
  5. I’m preparing an A4 landscape project in Photo, to print on an HP Photosmart B110a. A lot of ink is involved and I want to print at least the drafts, possibly the finished product (80 copies), in the printer’s draft mode. When I print in normal mode all is well. When I change to draft mode the copy prints out a centimetre higher up than it should, so the top gets chopped off and there is blank paper at the bottom. I then change back to normal mode, and it still prints out a centimetre higher up. Closing and reopening the file doesn’t reset it; exiting Photo and reopening it does.
  6. In both photo and designer my brush tool is offset to the right. In other words, I will draw at x, y, and the line shows up at x+z, y. iPad Pro, 12 in. It happens with all brushes. It only happens in landscape, not in portrait. Doesn’t happen in procreate or notes. What can be done to fix this?
  7. Is the expand stroke supposed to be used to get an offset, or contour? Maybe I am doing something wrong....
  8. I use Designer 1.6.1 (on Mac OS X Yosemite), italian language. Offset/Inset feature would be very nice. A feature allowing to see the name of the brush applied, when i select an object, would be very nice. THX
  9. Until just last night, I knew nothing about Affinity Designer. But because I was forced to find a substantially cheaper alternative for Illustrator for the time being, I'm glad to have found this app. Even though I can see right off the bat how many features aren't included that I'm used to in Illustrator, I see how the workflow is way more intuitive, and just consolidated in how you perform operations (Layer masks just like Photoshop. But like...with Vectors. WOW. Whoda thunk? Adjustments to the stroke thick/thin with that beautiful pressure tool. SAY WHAT? Where've you been all my life?) However, here are the three things I need to know how to do straight in Affinity. I realize I may need to jump back and forth in my clunk older copy of Illustrator to do a few things. But hopefully I'm just over looking things. How do you do offset a path? I know there's a stroke feature. Which is and isn't quite the same, but I can achieve similar things for the basic outside offset. However, I need to know how to do inner path offsets (you know, when you set the offset to a negative number, and it shrinks). I'm assuming it's called something else if you have this feature. I keep reading conflicting stuff online (that seems a little out of date as well) Is there a way to do the Envelope warp with objects in Affinity? Basically, I just want to know if I can arch my text like in Illustrator. I don't need the wacky bulges and crap like that. I just need to do arches and flag raises. Is there a shape blend tool or a process to create shape blends? A bonus one would be if I can create pattern brushes like in Illustrator, but that's a "meh" The fact that you can draw like a real art program means I wouldn't need pattern brushes as much. Anyway, I'm still using the trial. Is the paid version different?
  10. I've just been trying too get an offset of a path (dieline off a shape that's a few mm larger than the shape) and using the stroke-> expand stroke work around isn't great as extra nodes get added over the top of nodes creating issues with strange bumps and lumps and gets worse when trying to remove the extra nodes which then throws out the whole path shape. Can we or is there coming an "offset path" option coming such as there is in Illustrator? and a corresponding tidying of the nodes? And while I am here, will it be possible to reflect a shape around a moveable point as one can do with rotate? Using symbols to reflect about a particular origin seems to be an un-necessary amount of work to achieve something that should take a few seconds? Are either of those features set in the pipeline? Cheers
  11. Decided to switch over to AD from AI for icon design but this bug makes it almost impossible to work. When I switch to pixel view the grid gets randomly offset from the artboard. See screenshots below. The second example is and even bigger issue as you can clearly see in vector view that the vertical line is perfectly aligned, but still appears blurry in pixel view. Tested this behaviour on both 1.5.4 & 1.5.5b5

    Grid offset

    Hi Affinity team, Im really liking the customisability of the grid systems. The only thing that I feel is missing is the ability to offset the grid, hopefully I just havent found the feature yet. Sometimes its important that the grid aligns with the middle of the document instead of the top left. :D Hopefully you understand what I mean, if not, i'll try upload an image. Cheers,
  13. Hello guys! Not sure if this has been reported before. I looked it up on the forums but no results. Anyways, the issue is that the move tool shows offset the marquee selection. This happened whilst selecting a portion of a image and move it. Many thanks!
  14. I am new to Affinity Photo and like it a lot. I have been looking for a function I cannot find. Does Affinity Photo have a function similar to Photoshop's Offset? I am working with 360 by 180 degree equirectangular images, and I would like to move them right or left to put put a particular feature in the center. The offset function moves the image to the right, for example, and wraps it to the left side. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Ron
  15. This would be quite useful, especially for tiling textures for example.
  16. Hope someone can help me. Attached is the outline drawing of the side of a bar-top arcade game cabinet I'm making. I used this to cut the sides. I want to get some artwork printed on self-adhesive vinyl and need to make a version of this object that is 5mm bigger all round than this to allow for the bleed. Is there a simple way to create this in Designer? I understand there's no offset tool like in Illustrator (or Sketch Up). Any pointers gratefully received. I'm using 1.5.2 on a Mac, if that's any help. Thanx.Side Art v1.0.afdesign
  17. What exactly is Offsetting? How do I offset a text character using Affinity Designer?
  18. We achieved accurate colors in offset (Ryobi 522) with ISO Coated v2 (ECI) color profile. How I can use it in Affinity?

    Affine 50% issue

    Hello everyone! Sometimes I need to offset an image on X and Y by 50%. After doing this, I need to get it back to its original offset (null). Most of the time, this works with just using 50% offset a second time, but sometimes I am running into a weird issue: The layer seems to get offset by a weird value (or maybe Affine doesn't offset the whole layer?). The only way around this is to use Affine on X and Y by -50% each. But I cannot use negative numbers to create a Macro for this. Anyway, I shouldn't even have to use negative values because when 50% twice doesn't work, something else seems to be going wrong. I guess I am not getting a 50% offset of the whole image then. I made a video of this, you can take a look here: Affine.mp4 Also, I have already tried to paint to each edge and select the whole image, so Photo should be forced to work with the full resolution of the image. Here is a file that includes the problematic layer from the video: 02_04.afphoto Best wishes, Shu
  20. This is so bizarre I am not sure if it is a bug or something wrong with my software, but I have reset the macros & I still get the same problems. The basic issue is the values in the transform macro step keep changing. Sometimes this is just cosmetic -- it does not change how the macro executes the transform -- but other times it does. Since this is erratic & hard to explain, I hope the attachments will make clearer what is happening. This is the macro I am testing with & what the transform values look like initially vs. after either playing the macro in the Macro tab or saving it back to the library & then opening it for editing (whether or not I play it). This is what the test file looks like before playing the macro: After playing the macro for the first time, the test file looks like this: If I play the macro again (after undoing the changes the macro makes) I get this: Note that the offsets change, the shear is applied on the second run, & pretty much nothing is as I would expect from the original macro as created. Also attached is the test file & the exported afmacro file, zipped because (kind of absurdly) apparently we are not permitted to upload .afmacro files. Transform test.zip
  21. Hi, first of all thank you for this great software, recently I stated using it to draw websites mockups and I love it. The biggest problem in designing websites I perceived is the lack of an appropriate gird system: now i'm using guides, but I have to place all my artboards one below the other due to the artboard context guides bug (If i duplicate the artboard and move it to the right, the guides stand still and go off canvas, not be rebased on the new context). The integrated grid system would be great and really suitable for webdesign needs (thanks to his gutter feature), but the problem is that it always starts from (0,0), but often a website needs the grid in the centered wrapper. It could be possible to implement the feature to offsetting the starting point of the grid? With this feature, for exemple for an artboard of 1366px and a centered wrapper of 960px, i could simply calculate the width of every column and gutter and then set the starting point at (1366px - 960px) / 2 = 203px. In the case you can't or won't implement this solution, there could be another solutions to simplify webdesigners life and make Affinity Designer a perfect tool for drawing websites: - Implement the "Convert Object to Guide" feature, like inkscape - Implement a "guide presets" feature, so everyone could create his presets and apply them any time thay need Thank you very much for your attention :)
  22. Guys, there is a huge bug which took mi few hours of life. If you create dashed line stroke and specify its offset (you call it for some reason phase) Affinity Designer is not able to export it as PDF. I was able to export it as SVG though. It returns this error: "An error occurred while exporting to: XXX" Tried to copy this objects to affinity Photo and it does not export the PDF either and fails with the same message. Please fix it. Thanks. PS: I must say that since that unfortunate decision to support Windows you almost stopped working on updates for mac. I hope that you will repair such bugs and introduced missing features.
  23. Offsetting paths. Currently I've resorted to expanding the stroke, but the trouble of having to manually having to delete the inner nodes (especially on more complex shapes) can take up a lot of time.
  24. Hey guys, check out this nice interface for the Offset Path command in Autodesk's Fusion 360. I think something like this might be great for AD's command as well, similar to the current implementation of the Corner Tool UI
  25. I am working on pattern design and want to know if there is an offset filter in Affinity Designer. I know you can offset in Photo but I need to be working with vector images, not raster images. If theres no offset filter, is there another way to offset images? If not, is this something that could possibly be in a future update for Designer? The program is great and would love for it to replace Illustrator!
