  1. On designer v1.7.2 I have noticed when opening eps files, the shapes are opening incorrectly (seems to open smaller). The illustration looks like there is a stroke around the shapes. In previous versions of designer, I did not see this issue. Please see template example. Shirttestfile.afdesign
  2. Stroke width goes by increments of 0.1 pt, which is very coarse (also degrees when rotating and shearing an object). This means I can't even go by quarters in AD because it requires 2 decimal places (if using decimals). I'd like to see this changed to maybe 5 decimal places or just using fractions (for things like exact thirds). Gradient controls only go in increments of 1%. I'd like to see this drop to maybe 0.0001% and maybe add different gradient interpolation modes (like easing, cubic, hold, 1-bit dithering, etc.) and more cool stuff. Please give us more control than what Illustrator gives!
  3. In help there is information that it is possible to add stroke to artboard in Designer. However it just doesn't work. I recorded my attempt to add stroke to artboard. Help: https://affinity.help/designer/en-US.lproj/pages/Artboards/artboards_clr.html no stroke on artboard.mov
  4. Happens occasionally. Seemingly at random. This is how a 1 pt stroke prints. Using latest verion of Designer on Windows 10. Vector file attached. print error.afdesign
  5. Hi there, I just wanted to let the team know that the Expand Stroke option needs some work—especially with curves. I've had multiple instances where A.D. gets this wrong and ends up giving me a shape that is not exact, and in some cases it looks really terrible. Below is one example—although not the most extreme case. This may look like nit-picking, but when Illustrator can get it spot on and when detail matters, this is an issue that will stop me from using the program. Thanks for your time, and have a nice day. P.S. Try Expanding the stroke of a circle. It's bad. I know there is a donut tool, but it's still an issue.
  6. Hello, I found very frustrating problem in publisher ;/ What I did and what happend? I am creating a photo album with pictures. Each photo is placed in picture frame and under that, I placed a black rectangle with white stroke (to give a photo nice, white frame). When exporting to .tiff everythings fine. But I need to export it to pdf (I usually choose pdf x1). The white stroke disappears (even in basic preview in acrobat pro). When I choose pdf preset to "pdf for print", the white stroke appears, but when I open that file on proofing printer software/ print on digital printer/ offset printer (just prepress software or even desktop printer), the white dissapears. As I remember in beta I had a problem when I placed white text over photos in pdf (tiff was fine) (it disappeared in the same way). I'm attaching every steps described above + .afpub file. Are you working on that? white_problem.afpub
  7. Hi guys, Is there a possibility to change the angle of a gradient stroke? Can the gradient fill tool be also used for strokes somehow? Cheers, Chris
  8. Is it a bug or intentional? Every time to select a different brush, your storke with gets reset, making it a pain to check the look of individual brushes, as they mess up the object you're trying to apply the brush to. This just in... Helmar
  9. If you drag an object underneath another one (subordinating it), it will be used as a fill layer to the the parent. My question is: why can't this also be applied to the stroke? Or am I missing something here? Helmar
  10. I'm having a strange export issue. The polygon and its border look perfect in Designer, but when I export to PNG, the corner gets messed up. I've tried changing the corner's angle, but since I can't duplicate the effect in Designer, I never know if I fixed it or not and need to re-export and look at the PNG to see if anything changed. Left: Designer, Right: Exported PNG
  11. Shape strokes anialiasing is terrible and buggy. There is even a gaps between stroke and fill. Also setting stroke to the "center" is not an option for transparent shapes This makes your product completely unusable by any UI designer. And i'd like to ask an urgent hotfix or refund.
  12. Draw a circle with border, expand stroke and you get an oval! Expand stroke is a very useful tool, but is not accurate, at least with circles as you can see in the screen shot. Please fix this bug.
  13. Hi, i am just trying to use Affinity Designer from the 1st time. I have seen from different tutorials that there is the function EXPAND STROKE (in english version), but i can't find it in my italian version. Can you help me to find it? thanks, Regards Eleonora
  14. Create text, shapes, lines of varying thickness Group Grab a corner and drag to scale Everything scales nicely except for the lines and shape outlines (strokes), which stay the same thickness. Kind of defeats the object.
  15. Hi, I want to use an artistic Brush to outline my text Text Strokes using brushes doesn't work Regards.
  16. Hello friends, Do you know how to apply the gradient tool to stroke? Thanks in advance. Regards, Nick
  17. Hello I’m having problems trying to change the stoke with on vector persona. It changes randomly and it wont allow to change it to a desired with. thanks 28EFD05C-D7F7-4C95-9126-1EC638E19571.MOV
  18. I am trying to find a way to outline or stroke a selection but not having much luck. What I want to do is to make a selection from a raster image, then outline that selection into a vector and discard the raster image. I only need the outline. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Bob
  19. Hello, the vector "pattern brush" of AI is really useful for a lot of decorative work. Today, it seems to me that I can't do such vector designs in Affinity... And the Bitmap Brushes do not really answer to my need, especially regarding the handling of the corners. I've seen some questions on this subject on the forum but no actual answer from the team, can this feature be planned or considered? Thanks a lot!
  20. The problem is that the line has a rectangular (or square also, I suppose) "shape" assigned to it with handles. The line follows a vertical or horizontal side of this shape. Once the line is rotated the line no longer follows the vertical or horizontal side of the "shape", it now goes from corner-to-corner which changes it's length, and requires that one also has to rotate it to find the new angle to make it "90 degrees". This happens when you use the transform panel and the Top Menu > Layer > Transform > Rotate Right command.
  21. I'd love to see a set of basic stroke pressure presets, with associated thumbnail icons. ie. Flat, 100% - 0, 0 - 100%, Centre-peak etc. I find myself so often wanting a simple stroke pressure style and having to recreate it every time. I guess I could make them myself and save them, but they wouldn't have easy-to-use icons I can just click.
  22. Please look at the two screenshots. The left one is the design as laid out in AD, and the right one is the one after the PDF export. You'll notice that the dotted line is messed up. Please investigate and fix. Thanks so much, guys! Helmar
  23. Hi I presume that after last update something went really wrong with expanding stroke function. It is completely broken. I have a lot of work to do, but now I just cant do anything. Any help?
  24. On the A.I. file, you can see in the above menu that the text stroke is 4 pt. Over to the right, in the Layers, column, you see only the selected text block. (There are NO outlines...) After importing the ai file into Affinity Designer, everything "looks" fine, however the STROKE border has been eliminated from the Text itself, and has been converted into separate outlines for each letter. Look at the Layers column and you will see that I have selected the text, "Hagia Sophia" (blue highlight). You will also see that stroke width is 0 pt (not 4 pt.) Above the text selection are separate outlines for each letter of that text. Those are the "strokes" that have been removed from the text and converted to outlines. (See more below...) To demonstrate what I mean, I toggled off the visibility of the Text, and you can see that what is left are the outlines that have been converted from the original text. When I click on the outlines, voila!, there we see the 4 pt stroke in the stroke column to the right. The current way you do it would be okay if all I never wanted to revise the image but that, of course, is why I would import my ai files into Designer . . . so that I can revise them. Even on this simple grahic image, it took quite awhile to revise the text. It seems that you already can translate the stroke values from the original ai file so, rather than creating a new outline for each letter, couldn't you add the stroke value to the text of the converted Designer file? Thank you for hearing me out.
  25. After upgrading to Affinity Photo 1.7 I can now no longer find where or how to set the stroke width of font elements. I create a font and write a text and i have found I can use the alternative colour on the colour palette to make a stroke colour on the font, but I can not find any way of editing the width of this stroke. This previously used to be an option from the Font sub menu bar. Where has it gone?
