  1. Every time I try to create a new document, Affinity Designer freezes. I had this same issue with the free trial and thought it would go away when v1.9 came out so I went ahead and purchased the app. The free trial worked fine with Photo and Publisher so I'm not sure what's up with Designer. If I knew this program was such hell I would have just stayed with Adobe. Is anyone else experiencing this? I'm really annoyed about this.
  2. Time to start the planning for a new workstation. PC-based, Windows OS, probably 3 monitors, web development, graphics (Affinity Ph, Des, Pub; Elementor Pro, some video production). Looking for input from anyone who has experience with current graphics cards/accelerators. Good, bad, benefits, limitations, monitors partnered with, insights; anything you think relative. Thanks in advance.
  3. I found a bug in User Interface - which is not changing interface colour after choosing default OS option on macOS Catalina. The bug include just "Artboard Background Grey Level" which stays at the same position no matter which option I will choose - either dark or light. Sometimes it runs with random setting with dark background on Light option and light on dark option. I though it will sop doing that after setting your preferences for both options but it seems like with every instance of the software runs with different background, so every time I need to go back to preferences and change it manually. I'm using automatic options on macOS so either Photo App or Publisher adjust automatically but not a Designer. It's not a huge dealbreaker but it's a little annoying. I would love to see that fix in the next update. I'm using Designer on daily basis so I need to adjust background colour every day. I tried to find that topic before writing that post but I couldn't find it. I think it's worth mentioning. Thanks in advance. Adrian
  4. When printing a file in tiled format I can only print in 8.5x11 vertical which will require 4 pages. If I could rotate the paper to horizontal I could use only 3 pages. I do not see any way to change this, is it possible?
  5. Hi All, New user to affinity designer here! I am trying to import some svgs into the program, but they seem to always come up as completely black. It seems to be fine on browser SVG viewers and AI. another problem is the dotted bands either side do not properly import either, they load in as this shape attached. Any advise on how I can get this to properly import? Cheers!
  6. I can't figure out to rotate a guide line? I've tried down all the modifier keys I can think of, and the Transform studio is greyed out? 😕
  7. Yesterday I bought Affinity Designer with MasterCard and the purchase went through but the page was redirected to the shopping cart and it looked like I wanted to buy the product again. I looked at the FAQ and it said that the product key could be in my email but I checked and I wasn't, idk if this is a bug or something. this is the email that I used MODERATED@gmail.com and the purchase time was GMT+1 around 7:00 pm
  8. Vector Brush - on the Controller, the option (Brush Defaults) while using the (stylus pen) is not applying the Brush Default at the same way that mouse does. video example attached: Pink color is when Mouse is used Yellow color is when the tablet pencil is used I believe the brush Default should follows the Pressure Presets on the Stroke studio even if using the Tablet, as the Pressure option is not enabled 2021-03-01_15-13-29.mp4
  9. These are fake album covers I made with Affinity Photo for the Album Cover Challenge thing. I also included the a simple logo I made for my project 674D55F3-4B1D-45C2-9FA9-180D4776B1CC.MP4
  10. Hey guys, Just curious to see if anyone else uses Affinity Designer for clothing design and illustration? I've been using it to work with outdoor clothing manufacturers since 2016 and literally do not know any other designers who use use it. Am I alone? I can't understand why everyone is not using it as I've never looked back since making the switch from Adobe! Anyway, I'd love to hear if anyone in this forum is using Affinity design and develop clothing so we can exchange tips etc, etc. Some of my design work that's been created with Affinity can be seen at mrtechpack.com - I've also added some designer resources that can be downloaded for free incase anyone finds it useful. Thanks and happy illustrations! Mr Techpack
  11. Hi. Until the update 1.9 I was able to export SVGs from Affinity Designer to Cricut Design Space at actual size - meaning if I design something that is 30x30cm, it opens in CDS at the same size. DPI needed to be set to 72 to achieve this. Since 1.9, the resulting SVG now opens in CDS a lot larger than the size it was created at. Fine for me, but not for my customers who buy the SVG. The 1.9.1 release does not fix this. Any reason why this is now happening, and is there a work around? Thanks.
  12. I have a group of shapes that together form a rectangular ribbon in Designer. What I want to be able to do is to apply a slight "S" bend to the grouped object, but still retain it as an editable vector object. If it was a single rectangle I could convert it to curves, and use the node tool, but that doesn't seem to work with a grouped object. Any ideas ? Ribbon.afdesign
  13. Hey, I've just uploaded a load of resources for clothing illustration and design to help the community. As a clothing designer and developer, I am on a mission to let product designers know how good Affinity is for design and development! Included are... 15 Stitch brushes 17 Zipper brushes 133 fabric creases (clear png textures) 10 zipper slider vectors and 5 stopper vectors 6 button vectors All are customisable and can be found at mrtechpack.com I'll continue to make more useful resources whenever I can. Enjoy!
  14. Hi all, I downloaded a bunch of styles and they all have bitmap fills (see screenshots). Is there a way to change the fill without affecting the FX and so on? In particular I would like to shrink or enlarge the images and rotate them without changing the size and rotation of the container. I can do this in CorelDRAW. Is there a way to do this? Thanks!
  15. I ordered a Designer Workbook last year and it never arrived. Naturally, I requested my money back after 3 months of waiting. The fact I was told it was delivered (when it wasn't) made me suspicious about the way Serif manages or "doesn't" manage tracking on shipping. It's beyond belief. Now they are OUT OF STOCK. Which leads me to this forum (suggested by Serif). What I am wanting to accomplish versus what is being offered are two different scenarios. With no workbook to be had or videos that are called "tutorials", but aren't, I'm left with a really bad experience. Perhaps Serif could care less. Who knows? It doesn't diminish my desire to try using the Designer software, however, it's just too involved to go skimming through 30 plus videos on techniques when I all am wanting is to start a project (a simple one) and follow it through. Nothing extravagant or needlessly boring. Just a simple artistic project of say, designing a fish with colorful scales, utilizing ALL the necessary steps to completion. It seems like too much to ask, after reading all the posts in this forum. It's also nerve-wracking and spineless for a company to offer a product then not even offer a remotely idiot proof tutorial that walks the user through using the same product. Please tell me there is something out there, somewhere, for a complete novice to begin without having to sample through 30 "how to" videos to compile one single project. I'd be most grateful. Hell, I'd be "over the moon"!
  16. Hi, this problem is in affinity designer and photo. Mask and perspective have conflicts. For example, i can't duplicated o copy an object, this duplicate in blank. bug-affinity.mp4
  17. Hello! I had this problem at least twice now, and want to report it. When using the brush repeatedly, while having pen pressure on, affinity designer freezes and crashes, after a few quick brush strokes. I tried it without the pen pressure and it works fine without it, i think. Only setting I have changes i that I disabled Windows Ink inside of Affinity Designer and on my tablet. I don't have any issues with pen pressure on Affinity Photo, so I personally think the vector brush tool in Affinity Designer with pressure sensitivity ON is just bugged. Hope you can reproduce this problem and fix it. Thanks for your time and patience! Extra Specs, just for good measure: GPU: RX Vega 56 CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 CPU Graphics Tablet: Huion Inspiroy 950P. RAM: 16 GB of something. affinitybrushbug.mp4
  18. If I try to set point at the intersection of straight lines it's ok. But if I try to set point at the crossing of ovals (crossing change color to the yellow when I place mouse pointer on it) or other curves the snapping is not accurate. There is always a small gap between the crossing and the placement of the new point. P.S: Sorry for my English.
  19. When editing an embedded Affinity Designer file, seemingly at random I get this warning. Trying to save the main file after this results in Failed to save document: Save failed because the file could not be written to. This corrupts the file on disk making in unreadable. I have discovered that deleting the embedded file does allow me to save again. But then all work on the embedded file is lost. Export doesn't give the option to export as afdesigner file. This is on Designer 1.9.1. I didn't run into this issue on 1.9.0. I'm just working locally with the file. On MacOS 10.15.7. 2019 Macbook Pro.
  20. Inspired by the isometric grid 🙂 AD + AP 1920x1080, png 8bit
  21. Hello, When I use the pencil tool with fill, I will be drawing for a few minutes then the app will crash and all of my work is lost. I’ve tried changing the saving interval so it can save and I don’t lose my work but that doesn’t work. This is the version iPad I am using A1893. Please help, I’m starting to enjoy using AD and hope this can be fixed without upgrading to a new iPad.
  22. Hey guys!! Honestly, I love Affinity. When I find something that doesn't work as I expect it to work, I always make my mind and adapt because I want to use Affinity sooooooooo so bad. But this is breaking my brain. In AI, mirroring is something I do all the time because there's a tool for that, right? In Designer, there's no such tool, but whatever, I found a good alternative with the symbols. The problem is that, the vertices need to be really precisely at the same spot for it to work properly. That's where I realized that the precision in Designer is off. I copied 2 objects and pasted them in AI, it just confirmed the issue: one set of vertices was at 105mm and the other set at 104,986mm. It's so strange because I manually entered the value in Designer and visually, it was wrong... I understand I can snap to something slightly off when I move a vertex, but when the position is entered manually, I expect it to be 100% precise. Is there a way to tweak Designer's precision? Is there a trick I didn't see? Thank you for the help! In the meantime, I'll finish my illustration in AI 🥺 Mario
  23. Hello guys! I have a question: how can I make a vector brush that draws a given shame over and over again? I’m making technical clothing drawings and it would be so nice not to draw zigzag stitches one by one. I know there are such brushes in AI but since they can’t be imported I wonder if I can make them myself in affinity for iPad. this is the shape and I want to make things like this: @ProDesigner sorry to bother you but maybe you can help me again ( by the way, I can by pass the paddle thing If you make a 3 points vertical line ) thank you!!
  24. Hey, I found a bug that persists since many versions of Designer, Publisher and Photo regarding fonts and font replacements. I did a small research, but didn't found anything regarding this. It's not a big deal, but still annoying... When replacing/choosing fonts you're normally able to search for them (filter fonts by keywords). In my example in the attachments, it's Open Sans. So when typing in a font family in any dialog, it doesn't search for this font in my font library. Searching for fonts simply doesn't work. So I guess it should work like a search field like it does for example in InDesign (2. attachments) As I said, it's not a big deal, but annoying in daily workflow (especially because the font dialog is so small and if you have a big font collection you need to scroll all the way down to find the font family you need) So, please have a look at it. Thank you and keep up the great work! -Alex
  25. Affinity Designer crashes when I open my recent documents or create new ones, and fails to open with saved preferences. Crash log attached. macOS 10.14 (Mojave) on MacBook Pro 9,1 Core i7 nVidia 650M. Additionally, running it causes fans to go bonkers. Affinity Designer 1.9 is OK.
