  1. Hi, Thought it was about time I posted something new..... Been working on the Lightbox Expo Challenge (Environmental Design!) for nearly a month now...for a bit of fun..and to learn something new!. All Vector Construction in Affinity Designer with multiple layer embedded files and manipulation of adjustment layers.....mostly for re-colouring objects Two images created for projects Size had to be scaled to a multiple of 1940px width or height EV01 Original Size is 9600px x 3880 px (had to scale to 1940px) and 300dpi EV02 Original Size is 9600px x 4500 px and 300dpi Extended the height of this one during building as the framework looked squashed forced into the original size!
  2. Hi! The layer context menu from the Layers panel offers a row of colors at the bottom which can be used to assign color tags to layers. However, saving a layer composition with color tags applied as a snapshot and then restoring that snapshot will result in the removal of all color tags from the layers – either because these don't get saved with snapshots or because loading a snapshot deliberately resets all layer color tags for some reason. This is not a new problem with the 1.8.4 updates, I just didn't have time to create this topic earlier. Also, although I posted this in the Affinity Photo Bug forum, the problem is reproducible with Affinity Designer as well. I'm on Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer 1.8.4 under macOS 10.15.6 Catalina. I don't know if this has been reported before, but a quick forum search didn't bring up anything related. Cheers kaffeeundsalz
  3. Just a random thought: how can I reimagine the keyboard? heres three quite useless ideas: 1. the vertical keyboard (might be handy for one handed typing 🤪) 2. the air guitar keyboard 3. a keyboard with realistic letter sizes (the e is much more prominent in English than the q, quite strange they have the same size on a keyboard) its still work in progress. Next step is adding some shadow and background so they look like an Apple commercial (still, better inventions than the touchbar!) curious to hear your thoughts
  4. Ctrl+Z stopped working shortly before 1.8.4 Recommendation to hold control and restart until popup, and then choose I think it was clear, worked but only for a short time. Not sure steps before it stops, as I don't have time to mess with. I don't know anything about file size, but I thought maybe my file was to large at 13,787 KB?. I would guess this is small, but I don't know. Today after downloading 1.8.4, now ctrl+Z functions as a space bar, along with ctrl+shift+Z🙃 Everything works fine outside of Affinity. I hope this can be fixed as ctrl+Z is a must have.
  5. Hi, I just wanted to check if there a way to see the list of fonts used in a Affinity Designer document? I generally convert all the fonts to curve before sending the file (PDF) to printer to avoid missing fonts issue. But some font's don't get converted with ctrl+select (eg. fonts used in symbols). Finding the list of fonts in the document would help to identify if there's still some fonts that are not converted. Thank you.
  6. I'm currently working on some UI replacements for a game in Affinity Designer. The images are not going to be very high resolution, that's why every pixel counts. My problem while being in the pixel view mode and exporting the image as png is that the lower layers bleed through on the edges and make the pixels brighter as they should be. Normal View: Pixel View: These bright pixels are very visible in-game and make them look very disrupted. It does not make any sense for me that they are brighter. How do I get rid of these pixels?
  7. This is a work that I did for a video tutorial and now I've done a guide for it. you guys can use as tutorial to learn how I like to built my designs. enjoy! insta: @jhonatan.ssilva youtube.com/jhonatanssilva
  8. Hey community and devs! Problem is the following: I am not able to use the right click on the buttons of the stylus of my HUION display tablet in the complete Affinity Suite (latest release as well as beta). The right click doesn't get recognized. I have already tried experimenting with the preferences, but have not come to a sufficient result, but to the realization that it could be related to Windows Ink. I have already written in more detail about this here, a topic about a similar problem. I'm using the latest release of OS and drivers as well as both latest release and betas of the Affinity Suite. Display tablet I'm using: HUION Kamvas Pro 13 Now in the beta, the option to set Windows Ink has now been removed - but the problem still exists for me. Any thoughts/idead/workarounds/solutions about this? Greetings MrDoodlezz
  9. I used the new brushes and texture overlays I made to promote my new quick-start kits on my Gumroad store. This was the result! I teach English, and only get to draw in my free time. I'm still working up the courage and energy to do a complete dragon illustration. Will post here when I do! - Cheers!
  10. As a kid I would watch my fav shows frame by frame learning to animate. I recreated one of my fav scenes from Transformers the Movie. Only the clouds are pixel persona.
  11. I made the move to Affinity Designer not long ago from Assembly for iOS. While the Affinity suite is leagues ahead of that software, one feature it has that Affinity does not is the ability to export a process video. What I propose is a feature that converts a document's history into a video sequence that shows each step that the artist took to create their piece. I appreciate your consideration and anticipate your response.
  12. I've always like the concept of GUIDs (Globally Unique IDentifiers), and I like the sound of them "Goo eid". I've always talked and joked about them at my work (I'm known for always giving new people GUIDs when they start 🙂 ). On our company Intranet I had a chat group called GUIDs where I'd paste random GUIDs and sometimes facts about them every now and then. A while back I started drawing some cartoons and posting them there. I draw them with Affinity Designer, and I thought I'd post them here.
  13. I'm trying to look for an angled/tilted brush for hand writing with my pen tablet. I know it sounds extremely simple – it's one of the default brushes on Adobe Illustrator – but I can't seem to find it on Affinity Designer. Everything is rounded... Some taper off a the ends. But none are actually angled. Please help!
  14. Below is my list of written tutorials I have done over the years. The first few were done using early versions of Affinity programs but they should still be ok. Some menus may have changed or tools look different but the basics are the same. Also most are for Affinity Photo, but some could be done in Designer. Plus the "Beginners Look at Affinity Photo" ones will pretty much be the same in Affinity Designer and Publisher as all 3 programs have same basic functions.

It may work the same on iPad version but I don’t own one so can’t confirm that it will. It looks at what Styles are, how to make some Gradient Styles and some Styles made from images. Then how to Export and Import your newly made Styles. After that I do a basic overview of a couple of video tutorials I have made in the past. Using the Mirror Filter and the Equation filter to make new images, to then make Styles from. Lastly, another overview of a recent video tutorial, which looks at using the Vector Crop Tool in Affinity Designer to grab sections of an image to then make Styles from. The end of this PDF tutorial has interactive links to all the video tutorials and links to the downloads of all the Styles I have made in these video and written tutorials. https://www.dropbox.com/s/82szaatnflaw8fk/ACTIV8-issue7-Styles.pdf?dl=0 Activ8 issue 8 – Affinity Photo – Make Sketch Image With Just The Channel Mixer A while ago I made an Affinity Photo video tutorial about making a sketch image just using the Channel Mixer adjustment. I thought I’d up-date it slightly in this written tutorial, which can be done in Affinity Photo, Designer or Publisher. https://www.dropbox.com/s/6etmt3am6ljprwn/ACTIV8-issue7-ChannelMixer-Sketch.pdf?dl=0 Activ8 issue 8a – Affinity Software – 4 Creative yet simple ways to use Blend Modes This is a written tutorial update of a video tutorial I did in Feb 2018. They are fairly basic edits and will work best with an image that has a white background. So, I will use one I got from Pixabay, as are the other images used. Links to the video and image are in the written tutorial. The video was done in Affinity Photo but this will be done in Affinity Designer but I see no reason why it can’t also be done in Publisher. https://www.dropbox.com/s/sluebvjl86nuk8e/ACTIV8-issue8-Four-Uses-for-Blend-Modes.pdf?dl=0 Activ8 issue 9 – A Beginners Look At Affinity Photo part 1 Looking at opening images and saving your edits. Plus, file formats also a look at the Layers Panel and Colour selection Although tutorial is for Affinity Photo all will work pretty much the same in Affinity Designer And Publisher https://www.dropbox.com/s/7ztaxn4siom7evd/ACTIV8-issue9-Beginners%20Look%20at%20Affinity%20Photo%20pt01.pdf?dl=0 Activ8 issue 10 – A Beginners Look At Affinity Photo part 2 Looking at opening and setting up a new document other than an image. The Brush Tool and changing the Brush Tips. Then looking at the different types of Pixel and Vector layers you can make. Layer Masks and their use. Plus, a quick look at Text and Shape layers and the Glyph Browser. As with part 1, most (if not all) of the information in this tutorial will work just as well in Affinity Designer and Publisher as all 3 programs are so similar. https://www.dropbox.com/s/kourodnfojwq26l/ACTIV8-issue10-Beginners%20Look%20at%20Affinity%20Photo-pt02.pdf?dl=0
  15. in Affinity Designer, I appear to have lost the toolbox from where one, amongst other things, can select a vector brush. How do I get it back please? William

  17. Hi there! I love designing with repeating patterns. Now I found a good workflow to design and apply repeating patterns in AD. I recorded a tutorial that shows you how to design them, build a style library and apply patterns. They blend nicely with color fills using blend modes. The pattern and the color fill are in one shape, so no duplicates! --> https://vimeo.com/443692483 If you prefer the short explanation: I design vector patterns in a separate document using symbols to get the tiling right, export as bitmaps, use bitmap fills to build up a Style Library and apply those in drawings on iPad and desktop.
  18. Hi Using Gradients, or shadow effects dramatically increases the exported SVG file size. Do anyone have any tips/tricks for how to use gradients in a way that does not affect the file size? This is important for use on webdesign etc. By example, a file was 4kb, without gradient. Introducing 1 gradient and 1 shadow effect resulted in a 60kb SVG file. Anders
  19. Hi! I have a shape with several pieces that I want to cut out. I have followed the instructions I found here: https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/119718/why-cant-subtract-complex-form-in-affinity-designer but it doesn't work. Somehow, I got it to work once with a different file but I'm not quite sure how, and now, I'm unable to reproduce that success with a new file. Is this a bug, or am I missing something? I want to cut out the red shape from the white background. When I cut it, it ends up looking like this, instead of the holes being cut out and showing the transparent background: What am I doing wrong? affinity-cutting-problem.afdesign
  20. Hey guys! Let me share this guide that I did recently, building this item using Affinity Designer on ipad! also I did a tutorial on my youtube channel showing in real time how to do it... jhonatan's youtube I hope this help you guys! have a great day! Regards Jhon
  21. Hi, I have create this brush in Pixel persona using a square brush and adding a texture that I have created using symbols in vector personal. I could not add an SVG as texture so I added an PNG. The problem is that is looks very pix-elated. Looks really bad. I tried to make the texture bigger, smaller, played with zoom but it still looks bad. Do you have any idea what I should to to make it look batter?
  22. Whenever you try to flip multiple objects with the "Transform Objects Separately" enabled, they flip as a group and not as individual objects. I opened up a thread yesterday showing this behaviour in detail and looking for a workaround but I was wondering if this is a bug or if it's meant to be as it is. In my opinion since Flip is a transform tool I expected the objects to be flipped individually instead of as a group. That's why I consider it a bug but, again, I'm not 100% sure it is.
  23. Hi, I need to create a document with multiple 32x32px artboards in designer. I can't for the life of my find that setting where you can specify how many artboards. I don't wanna create 100 artboards, one at a time 🤨. Does anyone know where it is?
  24. Hello, Could anyone from the Serif team explain me, what does the repeat thing do in the bitmap section? I already watched tutorial about bitmaps, but this part isn't explained, and when I select repeat or zero, nothing happens, unlike of wrap and mirror. Is there a some bug or am I missing something? Best Regards
  25. Simulating end grain wood engraving using Affinity Designer I am interested in end grain wood engraving to produce prints. I decided to try to simulate end grain wood engraving using Affinity Designer. I am delighted to have found that Affinity Designer has Engraving as a category of brushes. I have tried using a vector brush with Clean Engraving 03. I am using the brush in white on a black filled rectangle as an unengraved wood block would print solid black in a letterpress printing process. Has anyone tried simulating wood engraving? As engraving on metal plates is also possible, could someone from Serif say on what basis the engraving brushes were designed please. Is anyone here interested in simulating end grain wood engraving using Affinity Designer? William
