  1. Hi Working with the vector brush in designer, I noticed an interesting setting! The brush changes color according to the fill and stroke. I even like it, I change with x on the keyboard (like in photoshop) and I have the other color. The interesting thing is that when I change to none - I have black! Even when selected, the swatch indicates none but displays shows black! This may be an interesting attempt to avoid unpainted lines, but when checked, the program should show the correct line color values. Affinity Designer 2021-02-20 17-49-48_Trim.mp4
  2. Hi. I would like to know if its possible to expand a stroke while deforming it progressively as it expands. I have a triangle with rounded corners and I would like to make a topography layout from it. Thank you
  3. I have a question about curves / shapes inside another (parent - child). When selecting shape or closed path containing curves, stroke modification change only parent item. To change children strokes, they have to be selected separately. When items are grouped, there is no problem - changing group stroke make effect on all items in group. Is there a way to change child property when changing parent, or to select both, parent and child, to apply format for all items.
  4. I tried rearranging the panels within the right hand studio area, to see if it improved my workflow. Discovered that I lose the ability to resize the Stroke panel, and also that changing between the Stroke and Brush tabs causes a strange jump in size.
  5. I cannot get rid of the bluish stroke on my shapes. Happens with all shapes. As per screen cap no stroke is selected anywhere in the interface, the shape is not selected nor the group. Occurs in new documents as well. Mac os Catalina 10.15.7, external Samsung 32d850 (2560x1440), Intel iris graphics 6100. Thanks for looking.
  6. Hey Serif! First of all, loving the new 1.9 update! Tons of feature improvements and they're all awesome. There is a bug that I'm seeing in the select same tool. When I use "Select Object > Unstroked Objects" , it works the same as "Select Object > Stroked Objects". It selects only stroked objects and not the unstroked ones. Here is a reference video.

  7. Hi all! I've only been using the Designer software for a few days, and I have no previous with graphic design software outside of Photoshop. My problem is that every time I create a dashed/dotted line, the dots never seem to match up where they meet at the start and end points, does anyone have any advice? See the attached screenshot of the issue. Thanks guys!
  8. First off, Affinity is a stellar piece of kit. I am a very satisfied customer. However there is a small oversight that is really strange and I think should be fixed. So, I checked the help section, which was incredibly useful and very well designed, lovely experience. and I couldn't find any way to add strokes to selections. This seems like a really weird oversight. Krita and Medibang can do this, photoshop can, and so can gimp, but Affinity can't and that does sour the experience in an otherwise fantastic piece of software. I hope this feature is added to affinity photo in the near future. the selection tools available are nothing short of spectacular, so it seems strange that there is no option to add a stroke with a pixel line or a current brush when everything else is really good. I am doing this on 2 fold: 1 I wanna help affinity as much as I am able, especially since its a reasonably priced 1 off payment. 2 I don't want myself or those who have similar opposition to adobe as i do, come crawling back to photoshop. I will continue to explore this app and report my findings and thoughts here to help the devs keep this tool awesome for everyone who uses it. Will also be down in the future to keep buying software from you guys should you continue to take a stab at adobe. I'll be happy to give money and feedback. Photo is such an incredible piece of kit, and I want to help make sure that everyone who needs it doesn't have to crawl back to adobe over some silly trifles. I will gladly give some of my time to the devs of photo if they want me to test the implementation of this. Have a nice day everyone.
  9. About a week ago a magenta stroke began appearing on everything once it had been selected, beit text or objects. It then remains whether selected or not. It appears on older and newly made projects. I've tried searching all pertinent topics and resources to learn how to remove this. Can anyone tell me why this is happening and how to remove it? Thank you.
  10. Hi, I'm trying to create an old school ornamental stroke on a text frame for a book cover like, I think, used to be available back in the QuarkXPress world. I've attached an image of the type of thing I need (please excuse the lousy quality). I have all three Affinity apps on Mac. Ideally the frame would be in Publisher, but I'd be happy enough with a vector object brought over from Designer. I'm wondering what the best/easiset way of approaching such a need would be in the Affinity Apps. Any suggestions? Create a single vector and add multiple strokes in the Appearance panel? Another way? Thanks for any suggestions. Pat
  11. Hey guy, I have a shape with no fill and I want the stroke to be shape. So I use "Expand Stroke". The issue is that when I do this AD doesn't directly convert the stroke as it is but cuts off a corner. Look at the screenshots. Maybe you can give me hint why this is happening. EDIT: Maybe I should say, that the strokes are aligned to the inside of the shape
  12. Hi all, this bug is present on both, release and beta build (1.9.0.863) of publisher, so I'm not sure if this is the correct sub forum. This simple SVG example file (see attachment) contains two rectangles, each with a stroke width of 10mm. On the red rectangle the paint-order of the stroke has been changed, so the stroke lies behind the fill: Remark: this is a plain SVG files with no Inkscape specific extensions. It is also rendered correctly by e.g. Firefox. When I embed this SVG file into a publisher document, the paint order is ignored (and so are the colours, but this is not the point here) (wrong colours due to inadvertently CMYK setting) Testetd with: 1.9.0.863 This bug is not new to 1.9, it is also present in version 1.8 (version 1.8 showed at least correct colours, but maybe I have not set up my beta environment properly?) Greetings max1josef stroke-behind-test.svg
  13. So I've added a document below. I did custom text with the path tool in AD. When I use the 'expand stroke' function the appearance changes. It becomes thinner, and it shouldn't. The appearance also changes when I do exports via the export persona. I am using Affinity Designer v1.8.4 expand stroke difference.afdesign
  14. Hi Affinity community, I've had a look in the forums but nothing is showing(maybe it's how I'm terming it). Anyway, I have a canvas with a size of 798px *798px. I also have an image 798px * 798px positioned 0px & 0px. I also have a square/rectangle the same size 798px * 798px with 1px orange stroke on the inside positioned at 0px & 0px with no fill. However the square/rectangle does not fit on the canvas. It disappears 1px & 1px to the right and bottom(in this case). Is this an issue with me & my sizes or is it a bug. In the attached image in image 1 at top you can see the selected rectangle is at 0px 0px & is 798px and that the canvas is also 798px. In the bottom part of image (image 2) you can see the stroke disappears to the right & bottom. This is happening in both AD & AP. I have tried changing where the stroke sits on inside, center, outside many times. This has happened quite a few times in the past & tonight I thought I have to try & solve it before it does my head in(that may be too late). I've noticed this happening with images as well, that they sometimes they don't fill the canvas properly. Any help appreciated.
  15. Hi, Is there a way to outline / fill a stroke? Thanks.
  16. Hello, I found that certain combinations of stroke's cap, join & align resulting in flattened stroke if exported to SVG. Oddly, it's only happened in closed shape (stroke that its start meets with its end). I exported to SVG using AD and opened the SVG using AI. OS: Windows 10 Home Affinity Designer: 1.8.5.70 Adobe Illustrator: 2021 (25.0 for 64 bit) I have made the list of the combinations that you can try for yourself to reproduce the issue. Step to reproduce the issue: - Open the file I provided and export it to SVG (for export) Flattened Stroke Test.afdesign
  17. I would love to assign my curves a stroke and later be able to change this specific stroke. Identical to global colours, where I am able to change the color and all objects using it are updated. Styles can be used to transfer a stroke to other curves but a Style cannot be changed after creating it.
  18. Hello, While I'm still learning how to use Affinity Designer I noticed that the Stroke's Outline is always on the center. 1 - I would like to change the Outline to Inside or Outside - How can I do that ? What I mean is to make it NOT centered based on the blue stroke line, but either outside or inside of it's outline. 2 - I would like to make the rectangle have sharp corners (like the example on the left) - How can I do that? I've tried the Corner option, it seems like it's on zero, but still rounded. Thanks ahead!
  19. Does AF offer the ability to create a multiple stroke with variations of thick/thin? InDesign panel example attached.
  20. I feel it’s not possible in AD, but just to be sure, is there a way I can apply a gradient to the stroke width? I mean, I know I can apply a gradient to the length of a stroke, but can I do it also to the width, so that gradient would follow the path of the stroke? My first thought that it maybe could be done via layer effects, but I couldn’t figure it out.
  21. Having the ability to apply a raster brush to a path would be such a welcome feature, even if the path is not editable after applying the brush effect. In many cases there are obscure shapes or angled lines that are difficult to draw freehand, and in those cases it would be great to be able to use the pen tool, but still retain the same texture and style of the raster brush you were using, as if you drew the stroke by hand. I know you can apply vector brushes in AD, but I mostly use the raster brushes in AP to sketch. Furthermore, the brushes in AD are stretched along the path, where in AP it would be great to rather have the ability to make it look like the stroke was drawn as if you were using the brush tool. I’ve recently been drawing out a lot architectural interiors for clients using a drawing tablet in Photo, and have really missed the ‘apply brush to path’ feature from Photoshop - would really speed things up and improve the end results! I’ve seen a few mentions of this online, but wasn’t sure if it was logged as a feature request yet, so here you go.
  22. When expanding the stroke of my drawing, one of the corners break. I've attached images. The first image is before the stroke is expanded, the second one is after. Why is this happening?
  23. Hi, I cannot add a second style with the same fill and stroke colour to the 'styles'. I'm trying to save some styles to the styles menu. They have the same fill and stroke colours but they have a different dash length/pattern. So when I try to add a second one to the styles menu, it doesn't let me do that. I think AD sees this as a duplicate and therefor doesn't let me add it. Only when I change the the colour of it. Anyone out there who can help me out? Thanks
  24. I noticed that when the stroke of an object is set to inline that the fill color of that object is clearly bleeding through behind the stroke. I don't think that's supposed to be as it would mean the stroke is not aligned properly with the border of the object. As you can see this also transfers to exports and is not just a visual glitch. In my example image I have a simple circle, filled with black and on top of that a smaller circle with a white fill and a black stroke set to inline. You can clearly see the white bleed on the border of the inner circle. The bleed also changes with the color of the inner circle's fill. Is there any settings I might have wrong to fix this or is this a bug?
  25. Hello! I posted one day the idea to separate the « placing within the line or at the end of the line » for the start and the end of a stroke but sadly it wasn't popular, so I don't know if this one will be. It would be great to get a third placement options for arrows beside « end » and « start ». A « middle » one would be great too! Especially if we could choose the middle point with a pourcentage of the stroke length It would save a lot of time creating stroke like illustrated in the screenshots I provided in the attachment of this post.
