  1. Dear Team Serif, in Affinity Designer for iPad there is an Icon at the Studio Colour. See below the file. What is the function of that? Nothing happens, if I klick on it. There is also no explaining. I am curious, what can I do with that? Best greetings
  2. Hey guys, as the title suggests, when I'm using the selection tool on the pixel persona and use the snap to edge it selects all of the artboards. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?
  3. Hey there, Im currently using the AD free trial and would like to know if you need to upgrade to get the stock panel option? Thanks for the helpers in advance.
  4. Hey there, I was wondering if you could select an object without marking the whole object, like illustrator. Thanks for the helpers in advance.
  5. When I just open a file instead of open the app first, can you make the startup window disappear since I already decided what file I wanna work on. Another thing is, I don't get any notice when I get reply about my question, is there any setting I should turn on?
  6. Publisher is already at 1.7. What is the likelihood we will reach 2.0 within a year or so? I don't want to put out $40 for Publisher just to then have to pay another $40-60 to upgrade in a year-ish once we reach 2.0. Also, any idea if existing users will get a substantial discount once the upgrade hits? If we don't that'd be a bit of a slap in the face, having to pay as much as new users.
  7. Can someone provide me with the exact ratio and resolution for Instagram uploads, both as portrait and landscape without losing any of its quality Thank you in advance.
  8. Hi All, I am 6 days into my free trial of affinity photo. I really like the software but have noticed that whites/highlights blow out way more severely than they do in Lightroom. Is this something affinity is known for? Is it an issue and is there a way to modify it, so that it is not as sensitive to exposure/white adjustments? Cheers Iain
  9. I used the pen tool on this program way back when (probably late 2017) and had no problem tracing my sketches into vector art. Now when I alt click a node (in 1.7) it turns the entire line straight instead of just removing one handle. Is this supposed to happen? Because right now the tool is virtually unusable.
  10. Was hoping there would be an import and insert option, but I'm not seeing it anywhere. I've found the Place option, but I'd really rather not have to insert a doc page-by-page. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  11. Hi, is there any way to keep distance between two or more objects, when I am transforming them? It would be very usable in UI design. Im talking about situation, when i have fixed width container and want to put in it 4 elements with 30px gap between them. Now, when i want to transform that group of 4 elements, they change width, but margin between them will keep that 30px. To be clear - i don't talk about auto distribute feature - i know about it, but it affects gaps width only, not objects themselfs.
  12. So there's a setting in Photoshop called transfer that I use religiously. Is there a setting in Affinity (or is a setting being planned in a future update) that I can use that would produce something similar?? I found another thread about this but I'm looking for more recent answers.... I tried setting "flow" to be affected by pen pressure, but the result is too different from what I'm looking for. I'd also be okay with a Photoshop plugin of... some sort, that might allow me to do something similar... I'm just so desperate for Affinity Photo to replace Photoshop for me. I refuse to pay monthly for something I wouldn't use monthly! Anything helps
  13. Hello, Just a simple question: is there a way to define the default number of nodes created when you use the mesh warp tool? I'd like it to behave like the warp tool in photoshop where it creates by default a grid of 4 x 4 nodes to warp the object, whereas on affinity photo it creates only a grid of 2 x 2 nodes. Any way to modify the default number of nodes created in Affinity Photo?
  14. Hi I seriously need help, UI is in Low Res/ Blurry I have been trying posting this problem before but with no answer and now I am really dependant of this software, already tried to uninstall and install, update but no solution. It's for the Publisher Beta but I guess one fix covers all. 1.7 on OSX Please Help.
  15. Hi friends, My little sister lost a friend to cancer last year. He was 17 and an athlete up till diagnosis. Tough story. I've been tasked with designing a logo for a memorial golf tournament. I am having trouble identifying a Designer/Photo tutorial to achieve the look I am aiming for. I'd like to take his image and convert it simple illustration above text. Any assistance and/or direction to a tutorial would be very much appreciated. All the best, Jon See examples and provided photo attached.
  16. I want to remove the white from this image, I've adjusted the Levels so the whites are completely white & blacks are completely black. I've gone to the selection tab & tried the 'Select sample colour' but i can't find a way to make it work. I've spent the last 3 hours looking at youtube tutorials, FAQ's & forums yet i have no idea what i'm doing right or wrong, please help.
  17. Why I can draw only with continues lines and not by tapping points
  18. Hello! I read the license but I still got a specific question that I'm not 100% sure. I have bought Designer for personal use. I also work at a company where I got tasks where I can use Designer. My question is: Can I use my own Designer license at work where basically I do not own the computer (Windows)? It is only me who uses the computer (and the software) but it belongs to the company. My guess is no, but I need confirmation. Thank you! Levi
  19. I have a lot of question about Publisher. Question 1 insert page number can't work. insert page number.mov Question 2 Can't change the borders of table. q2.mov Question 3 Can't insert table of contents. I can use this features when I open a new doc but it's still weird why it can't work successfully? p.s.And the attachment is my AP file. Thanks for any suggestion. publisher.afpub
  20. Hello there, I am currently on the 10-day trial of Affinity Photo testing the waters. I've been a long-time Photoshop and GIMP user, however I have recently become disgruntled with Photoshop and am looking for a powerful alternative. Affinity looks great in a lot of ways, however I came across something quite alarming. Affinity doesn't support ICO? Even the free open source Gimp can edit an ico file, why can't affinity? Will that support be coming soon? Is there a plugin that allows for ico's to be edited? Thanks! Jesse
  21. Hey, I am sorry if this question is already asked, but I could not find a solution to my problem. I just started the trial version of Affinity Designer, and I have the following problem: Consider two circles that are partially overlapping: Is there any way to remove the region that is overlapping from one object? Sure I could realize almost the same when I just place the second circle on the top layer and give it the background colour, but this is very annoying when creating larger objects. I think this is basically an inversion of the mask function, where only the overlaying part is kept and everything else is hidden. Cheers, Snizl
  22. I recently purchased these two applications because I'm looking into university courses to do with graphic design etc. I'd like to pursue a career in this field. Sadly I'm rather new to all this. I've looked at the tutorials that Affinity give you for these two applications via their website and via their apps, both the written and video format. However I don't find them to be that helpful and because of that I was curious if there is anywhere online that can provide me with more in-depth tutorials? If there isn't, Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop are the most popular applications that are similar to Affinity Designer & Photo but are they similar enough to where I could watch tutorials for Illustrator & Photoshop then use what I learnt from that and put it into practice in Affinity Designer & Photo? Also, I know Affinity provide coffee table style books for these applications (no PDF versions available) but they would cost around £80 for the set and right now I can't see the justification for it, at least for me, unless the books really are the best option for tutorials. Keep in mind though that I'm using a 12'7 iPad Pro, not a desktop. Yes I have the Apple Pencil, don't worry. If anyone can provide me with links, advice or just point me in the right direction it would be extremely helpful.

  24. Hello! I've purchased Affinity Designer and Photo when they came out for Windows, but it was with an email address that I no longer have (deleted it). Is it possible to change it to the new one, so I can use my current email address for installs? Will this cause any future problems? Extra questions: this one's my old account https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/profile/42426-tamascs/ . It's also tied to my old, no longer active email address, is there something I can do to recover it? Thanks in advance!
  25. Sometimes I'll do a quick test edit with low- or medium-res versions of images. If I'm happy with how the test edit is going, I've wanted to be able to pull in the high-res versions of the images and use them to replace the medium-res versions. I'd love for all masks, adjustments, etc. that I've done on the test edit to be correctly applied, or at least scaled accordingly to fit the new image size. Obviously, I'd need to make sure the height:length ratio and cropping placement of the high-res images is exactly the same as the lower res versions. I've looked around on the forums, tested this several ways on AP, but am not sure if this is even possible. Do you have suggestions of ways I can either a) scale up / down masks and adjustments to perfectly fit new image sizes, or b) swap out a smaller pic with a larger version of the pic and have all edits be properly applied?
