  1. How do I combine these text letters into one shape/object and keep the stroke size intact? I converted the text to curves, I then "add" the shapes. And what happens is that I loose the stroke size, and the inner white areas are filled in. Thank you to anyone for helping solve this issue.
  2. Hi, I'd like to request a feature that would allow me to add nodes directly between existing nodes on a shape, similar to how Illustrator's "Add Anchor Points" tool works. I think this could be even better if you could select which nodes you want to add nodes between, rather than this only working for the entire shape. For example, if I have a circle with 4 nodes, and I select the top and left nodes and use this tool, it would add a single node evenly spaced between the two on the existing path at the top-left of the circle (see screenshot). If I select the entire shape, it would add 4 nodes, one between each connecting pair. Thanks!
  3. Hi, could anyone help me with combining items? I have some curves grouped and a shape which I have converted to curves and I would like to combine them so that the stem doesn’t show in the box (please see image). I have tried ordering but I need to box transparent so that doesn’t help and I have tried various masks with no success. If I try the ‘add’ function I just seem to end up with the square only. I have shown a picture with my layers panel to see if it helps. Or maybe it just isn’t possible? Thanks in advance.
  4. I'm just getting started with Designer and am excited about its potential. Excellent work by the Affinity team! I create logos and lettering primarily, and with my method of building shapes with the pen tool, I intersect my line segments in order to be able to edit anchor points and handles of one segment without altering the adjacent segment (see attachment). With Illustrator's Unite function in the Pathfinder palette, I am able to divide a single shape where the paths intersect and delete the unwanted areas outside my desired final shape, while the unwanted overlaps inside the shape are automatically removed by the same function. I've tried a workaround in Designer by placing another small shape inside my desired shape, which is then absorbed completely by the 'Add' operation, but the intersections of my original shape are unaffected. I'm sure this sounds confusing, but I'm not sure how to explain it in a better way. Hopefully the attachments will make it easier to follow. The attachments are from Illustrator's workspace to explain the desired functionality. Is there another way I can do this with Designer? Thanks, Jeff

  7. So I purchased Affinity Designer for Mac and in all honesty it is amazing application and does 99% of what I need as a graphic designer. There is one thing missing! An IMAGE TRACE FUNCTION. This software would kill off Illustrator and would be perfect for any designer. Why haven't you added this feature yet? When will you add it? Will it be added? A lot of people can't afford Adobe's ridiculous prices and use not exactly legal methods to acquire its software. I love using Affinity Designer but its just LACKING ONE FUNCTION, so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add an Image trace function and quickly! Many thanks! Chris.
  8. Hello guys i'm little bit stuck whit a very strange bug never happens before to me. Let me explain better, when i goes to blend those curves already expanded by strokes by Boolean op AF start to load like he is doing a super complex operation that should be instead very easy. pls help me to understand if depends on my pc that is not brand new but should runs Designer nicely for my kinds of works 😂 How you can see on the screen i was able to merge the first snake but not the second or third, even to mention doing all three together... that I thought should works easy , so the only way to stop this loading is terminate AF😟 Thank you for your attention and my apologize for bad English 🤗
  9. I’m having a recurring issue when trying to subtract an overlapping shape from the object below. Every time I try it, the resulting new object is distorted. This is something I’ve not had issues with until now. Same thing is happening when I try to add multiple objects together. Examples attached.
  10. I was in the process of adding multiple layers of curves via the OPERATIONS ADD button, then the ADD process bar shows and seems to be busy but never completes the task. Also, there is a visual "distortion" (in the "i" of "life". The program seems to be frozen without any responses when prompted.

  12. Hey guys, Check this out. AF tried to combine these two shapes with only 4 nodes, removing the one at the bottom and making the new shape round. Edit: I've tried combining the rectangle with a triangle and it's worked fine.
  13. In Designer 1.8.1, when performing Add, Subtract, or Xor there are serious bugs as shown in the screen capture below. Screen Recording 2020-03-03 at 11.56.29 PM.mov
  14. So this one is reproducible. Funny how I needed this shape, its the middle of the Centenary Bank logo if you were wondering. So I use the trimming from the letters expanded outlines and that gives me the cross bar. Next I Add the two parts together, and ... well ... that's when the mathematics breaks. Please see attached, it seems to be the top left and right sharp angles that are getting it confused. If you flip the cross bar over it welds to the to bottom points. Can some one please test this for me and confirm it's a bug. Running the latest (v1.8.0.585) Thanks. Not_able_to_join.afdesign
  15. Hi, Iam new to affinity to photo. I have watched videos on how to create a panorama and it looks very simple. File> New panorama > Add > select photos > stitch panorama. Accept I for what ever reason can't get to add my pictures. I press the button then nothing happens. If i click again it pretends that it is doing something but nothing happens. im on a later 2013 mac book pro. I expected it to be slow but, I can't find anywhere that says that this feature is not open to older machines. Can anyone lend any advice. Thanks in advance
  16. With CTRL+left click on a layer icon it is possible to create a selection from the contents of this layer. In PS (I know, AP is not PS...) you can use SHIFT or ALT as modifiers for adding to, subtracting from or intersecting with an existing selection. I would like to see this in AP, too. For adding two or more layers to a single selection there is at least a workaround: make a group from the layers you want the selection from and CTRL+left click the group layer icon to get a selection made of the "summed up" content of each of the grouped layers. However I haven't either figured out a way to realize the other operations or how to modify an existing selection with "selection from layer".

  18. I have an issue with the Add operation in comparison to Illustrator. As of now, I don't believe there is a feature that allows us to select by fill or color, this prohibits me from being able to select only the black infill and then add or merge them together as one shape. In Illustrator, I can select by fill color, select "unite" in the pathfnder window (which I believe is the equivialent to "add" in affinity) my design comes out perfect. With affinity, since there is no option to select on by fill color, I have to select everything, then select "add" which fills in portions of the object with solid black.
  19. When I grab these individual fill pieces to merge them together with the boolean operation "Add", it turns them into an outline - . Most of the time this works just fine, but why in some cases might this result occur? thanks!
  20. When making a selection with the Selection Brush Tool the action of the Add and Subtract buttons are reversed.
  21. I can never seem to get the ADD, SUBTRACT, DIVIDE, COMBINE functions to work right, can someone please tell me what I may be doing wrong or if it's something with the software settings? https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cqfeDnZfQU
  22. Hello, is there any shortcut to use will have a selection tool to change between add and subtract instantly? Like in PS? This will make my life waaaay easier. thank you!
  23. Hi I’m working on an illustration and trying to turn all the lines into shapes so I can colour them, I’m doing as I usually would and expanding the stroke > then in geometry tools click add but when I do that the add loading screen appears and then gets stuck on that screen, it works fine on some expanded shapes when adding them others it doesn’t. I’m selecting only a small part of my illustration to do this too it’s not the whole illustration which would likely take time as it’s more complex, but surely it should be able to work on complex shapes too shouldn’t it? Look forward to your reply. FCD01CA7-3E54-46AD-BCD7-C4A0AD67B6F7.MOV
  24. Looking for help... I'm still learning how to use Affinity Designer and am taking online classes. The task is to take 2 objects and merge them into 1 object by using the Add feature under Operations. For some reason it's not working. The toolbar items are not grayed out before I select my 2 objects and when I try to click the button, nothing is happening. I also cannot seem to customize my toolbar... that option is grayed out. Any ideas??
