  1. Adding a mask to a layer/group will multiply the end result's opacity by itself, since the mask inherits the opacity; so a 50% opacity layer/group will look like 25% opacity if a mask is added. In the attached file, the right layer and group are given a mask, and as such they look half as opaque as on the left (because 50% * 50% = 25%). (And the more masks you add, the less opaque it will end up being (so long as the opacity is not 100%), because each of them will inherit the opacity) Alpha Bug.afdesign
  2. I am trying to make it were the opacity of my brush is controlled by the pressure I'm putting on my tablet. I looked around and found this https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/70576-opacity-pressure-control/&_fromLogin=1 But I tried what was said and shown and still doesn't work.
  3. Hi, I am still learning. I have inserted two objects that are set to white with 100% opacity, thus they should be solid white. However, they are placed over other objects of colour and that shows through the white objects with part transparency. I can't figure out why. Am I missing or forgetting a setting somewhere? Thanks for any help.
  4. See screen shot. I have a background image on the spread. The printer advised to expand the image into the full Bleed so as not to risk some "white" unprinted edges when the bleed is trimmed off. Printer indicated a risk factor of about 1/16th of an inch. In this case, the image Opacity is set to 30%, but it comes out 100% in the bleed. I think this needs to be repaired - if the printer is off in the trimming, you would see the 30% image in the center of a page, but at the edge the risk is that you would see the image at 100%. This becomes even more important for the cover since there may be a wraparound and you wouldn't want the image to suddenly change opacity as it wraps around the cover edge. If opacity is not used, then the entire full bleed image is fine at 100%. Fortunately, if you export to a PDF, this appears to be only a visual, cosmetic problem. That is, what you see in AFPUB is not what you get when you export. The exported spread does not show a 100% opacity in the bleed area - in my case it is the specified 30%. I do not know if the export to other formats would follow suit. So, maybe not so critical, but it could cause confusion for users to see the difference in opacity in the bleed. Second screen shot is a PDF export.
  5. Please add a force pressure to control opacity button besides the one that controls size. I just switch from photoshop and I really miss that button since I use it a lot.
  6. In most places in Publisher the amount of opacity is shown as a percentage except for one. When changing the opacity of a fill in a text frame there's a slider but no place (as far as I can see) to view the actual percentage of the opacity. I find this very frustrating and makes for inconsistent values when adjusting the opacity of fills in text frames. If this is a missing feature, please add it in the next upgrade!!!
  7. Hi there! One Affinity photo feature that is dearly missing for me is a keyboard shortcut to increase and decrease opacity of the currently selected layer. I would need this, so I could map this shortcut to a MIDI controller and be able to quickly set a layer's opacity with said controller. Since there is an ever increasing number of people who use MIDI controllers as quick input devices for the graphic softwares, I believe I am far from the only one who would benefit from such a feature. Currently there is only the possibilty to use the up/down arrow keys (+ shift optionally) to increase and decrease the opacity once I have set the focus to the opacity field. This does not really help me all that much as I would always need to focus this field first, before i can start to change the opacity. It would be great if there could be a global shortcut for this as well, preferrably also with the possibilty to use shift optionally to increase the increments to 10. I would not care if it is an obscure shortcut or if it is even turned off by default, as soon as there is any shortcut for this MIDI users could make use of this and map it to their controllers. Thanks! trych
  8. Is there a way to disable the opacity shortcut when using the number keys (1-9)? I use Affinity software for digital painting and illustration, and I keep accidentally hitting '3' instead of 'E' for the eraser and changing my brush opacity to 30% by mistake. I've also assigned Cmd+1 and Cmd+2 to rotate my canvas left and right, but the same problem here - I keep accidentally changing my brush opacity in the process if I don't perfectly press Cmd together with the number key. I don't use the number keys to set opacity of my brush anyway, so I would love to disable and/or customise those shortcuts to accommodate my workflow better, but I can't seem to find those keys anywhere in the Keyboard Shortcuts panel. I wouldn't recommend removing this shortcut for those who use it, but perhaps having the option to customise it would be helpful? Thanks in advance.
  9. Is it possible to set brush opacity + brush flow with an Affinity Photo action or with a keyboard shortcut? This enables a quicker workflow if one can just toggle between e.g. 20% opacity 20% flow and then go back to 100% opacity 100% flow without having to change it every time manually. Thank you for your advice how to do this or to take the time to add it to your feature request list. 😃
  10. Hey y'all! Ever since the update to 1.8 the way the opacity slider acts on mask layers changed. I can try to explain it using words, but I made some screenshots to show you what changed. As you can see in the last two panes; the way the opacity slider behaved in the new and old version changed completely. Now, I now that applying different shades of gray on the mask can achieve the same thing (which I used to make this example) but I loved how the slider worked in the previous version. Especially when using various degrees of grey on the mask. With the slider you controlled the entire mask. Anyone know how to fix it or a workaround? Or should I hope it'll be patched in the next update? Thanks!
  11. I'm trying to superimpose one photo on top of another, with a gradient opacity. Both are roughly circular, and I want the opacity of the top image to be 0 in the centre and 100 at the outside. I've tried to use a radial gradient, and it gets the opacity down in the centre, but I can't work out how to set the outside stop so that it leaves the photo's colours unchanged. I seem obliged to set it all to a specific colour, which isn't what I want. How do I get round this?
  12. Hello: I have found an error that occurs on edges of a brush stroke in pixel persona. What it should be: The stroke has the same colour in the inner part and in the outline. What I get following the steps: The colour of the outline is different from the inner part. The steps are: 1. Change to pixel persona. 2. Use brush tool. 3. Select a pen brush and paint (the second one of the list below). 4. Change the brush to a hard basic one, change hardness to 0% and paint (I´ve used the 8th). Please, let me know if there already is a solution. For the moment to fix it, what I need to do is to change to draw persona and get back to pixel persona. Thank you very much.
  13. Hello! I haven't found a solution for my problem, though there are some similar topics here. I wanted to create an outer shadow for a button. The fill of the button was transparent (36%), and I wanted the shadow to have 100% opacity, but that is impossible: there is a dependence between opacity of a block and its shadow's opacity. Here is a picture. May be this is my mistake, anyway I hope to get a solution for that. Thank you!
  14. Hey Why vector crop tool CHANGE opacity of the croping objects ? And how turn this off? It happend only when the object that i want crop is under 100% opacity VID_20200114_124459.mp4
  15. In Affinity Designer it seems there is no way to change the opacity of global colors. This is becoming frustrating when designing UIs. Opacity is an integral part of color schemes in Google's Material Design; it completely depends on opacity to create visual hierarchy. From Google's Material Design Guidelines: "Using opacity instead of shifting colors often creates better contrast and relative luminance. For example, gray text (#727272) becomes hard to read if the background color changes to magenta." Is this feature on your road map?
  16. Hi there, I just finished my first illustration on Affinity Photo, and I can finally think I've found a good alternative to Adobe's softwares Especially one where I can recreate some of my long term habits from Adobe and remain efficient. The only problem I encounter is that I'm really, really used to control the size of my tools with the 2 and 3 key on the top left of the pad (so, rather the é and "). I find it to be the most comfortable for me as my left hand is always around there on the keypad while I'm drawing (oh look, there's also the ctrl and z keys nearby ). Well, so, it was quite disturbing that these num keys, by default, control the tool opacity and you can't change it at all. For now I've combined them with "alt" to control the brush/eraser size but (when I don't forget to press alt) it sometimes creates a conflict with the color picker shortcut (and I'm also used to constantly pick colors with alt). I don't know if I'm the only one wo needs to customize these keys but it would be really great if we could. Thank you and keep up the good work Serif !
  17. When using masks with opacity, in combination with an adjustment layer (which supports alpha, e.g. curves) to the mask, the opacity does not affect the mask, but the layers below the mask. Trying the same on the PC version (1.7.3.487) gives correct results: adjustments affects the mask.
  18. Let's say I've created two global colors: G1 and G2. I insert some objects and assigned them G1 color with different transparency, tint and noise values. If I change the G1 color everything works fine. But if I assign G2 color to them, all attributes are resseted. BTW, you should put tint slider together with opacity and noise sliders.
  19. Hi all, The attached file shows a recurring problem, which is: I was tracing over an image and so set the opacity low so that I could see what I was tracing over. When I had finished, I removed the opacity on the slider so that it was 100%, but nothing happened, the opacity remained. Copying and pasting to the same and a new document did not work, neither did opening it on another machine - both Windows and Mac. There is no gradient or transparency set, all opacity sliders are set to 100% and no matter what colour I select, going from transparent to deepest black, the opacity remains. The only solution was to retrace at 100%, which I did. Any ideas? Opacity.afdesign
  20. Hi. When I add a mask to a pixel layer. The opacity slider of the mask affect the layers opacity instead of the masks opacity. I discovered this behavior in both windows version (1.8.0.486 beta and 1.7.3.481). In the ipad version the slider works fine. Best regards, Timo
  21. In the desktop version of Affinity Designer, when you apply an ‘Outline’ layer effect with a gradient fill you have full control over the opacity of that fill. I can’t see a way to vary the opacity of the ‘Outline’ fill in Affinity Photo for iPad. Is it possible, and if so, how?
  22. Hello everybody, I tried searching for such a topic and did not find one. My problem is that once I do a stroke with a Pixel Brush I can not modify its opacity after the fact. Is there a way I can do that? Or is this a bug of my version of Affinity Designer for iPad. I have the iPad Pro 10.5" I have attached a video of the problem. I have been learning and am very pleased with Affinity Designer and I wish to continue developing my skills Thank you! Boyan RPReplay_Final1571232327.m4v
  23. Have we lost image opacity slider in 1.7.3 on MAC? When I select any image on the document the slider seems to.. well not be available to the tune of no actual slider handle?? It doesn't seem to matter if I select the picyure frame or the lower image layer? Rob
  24. Hi, I'm not sure if I'm geting things wrong or there is a bug in Affinity software, but I see some weird behaviour with cliping objects in layers panel. See my video please: I have two squares, both the same colour and 50% opacity. Square 1 has 50% through Layers panel, Square 2 through Color panel. When I aply 100% white circle shapes inside them to clip them both, squares have different final colour. The Square 1 has in fact 25% opacity. Square 2 keeps correct colour. Is this behaviour normal? There is no blending option applied on any shapes at all. Things are weird even if I export my graphic to PDF. In PDF the final opacity of Square 1 is as I would excpect – 50%. Thank you for explaning. Mask-Opacity.mov
  25. When opening a PSD in AP 1.7, it is not grasping the opacity settings of some layers. This is especially weird since everything else works finely.
