  1. 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?
  2. Vector crop tool on an image that's not 100% opacity look strange. It become different opacity though opacity value is the same.
  3. Hi guys, if you are using Adobe Photoshop or used it before, you must have seen the FILL option often right. It's located below Opacity in Layer Panel. So some of you might be wondering about the difference between Opacity & Fill Opacity because if you look at it, both Opacity & Fill Opacity do the same thing, controlling the transparency of a layer. But then, why bother to create the same feature, there must be a difference right. So in this video, I will explain the difference between Opacity & Fill Opacity, and where Fill Opacity is located in Affinity Photo. I hope you enjoy th
  4. 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!!!
  5. I'd like to add background color to a page but can't figure out how to do it. I select the color with the color picker. There are two opacity slides, but neither does anything as far as I can tell. What am I doing wrong?
  6. 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
  7. Hello! Affinity Photo is a really good software (except for the constant crashes). But it still lacks a simple basic and very important feature: BRUSH OPACITY CONTROLLED BY PRESSURE. If this option is somewhere hidden, please tell me. Oh and I don't accept that using pressure for the "Flow" option is an alternative. Common guys, many simple and free softwares have this: Krita, Gimp, Blender, or simple and cheap softwares like Artrage. I know this software is not made for digital painting, but I don't use it for that. I use it for render post processing, which is the same as phothography e
  8. Hello! I am still new to affinity photo on the pc. I haven't had any problems with it at all until now. As I am drawing an illustration for a client my brush opacity is dropping to 0% without me doing anything but drawing. I have changed brushes, I have checked the setting for those brushes it even does it with the erase brush. It just randomly drops to 0%. I am using a huion kamvas 22 plus to draw with as well as a razer tartarus chroma for shortcut keys. The pen driver has no issues and nothing has changed with my razer keypad. I am at a loss on how to fix this. I have to change the opacity
  9. Here is an error that I was able to replicate on my system MacOS Catalina version 10.15.7 (19H15) Affinity designer app store version 1.8.6 In the attached affinity file you can see that the white object is in a group by itself and the group opacity is set to 90%. When exporting this to pdf (see attached), the grouped object has weird glitches around the edge. The version on the right is smooth and round. glitch.pdf pdf-glitch.afdesign
  10. Hi, I have a pixel layer that is transparent although it is at 100 opacity. there's no effects on the object. I drew a vector shape over it in another layer, made a selection from that object, inverted selection, selected the layer I wanted to cut out en pressed delete. The vector shape was transparent, but the selection was clearly around the edges. I've been browsing around on the topic but can't figure it out. What am I missing?
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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. 😃
  18. 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 yo
  19. 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?
  20. 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,
  21. 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!
  22. 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
  23. 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,
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
