  1. Hey everyone, today, when I open a document that I was working on yesterday perfectly fine, I get the following error message: What does »link« mean in this context and how can I fix it? How can I see which links/objects have been removed? Edit: I used no linked images/objects to begin with, only a couple of embedded screenshots and symbols. Thanks!
  2. Is there a way to insert bullet point as a special character (Character Map) into a text in Affinity Designer on Windows? I know there are some buttons to automate the bullet point generation in Affinity Designer, but they are too restrictive sometimes. In Adobe Illustrator, VectorStyler and Notepad++ on Windows, we can insert a bullet point into a text, by pressing Alt + 0149 keys. Doing this in Affinity Designer will just generate an outlined rectangle
  3. Is there visual tab stops ruler for text objects in Affinity Designer, as the ones in Adobe Illustrator (the hotkey is Ctrl + Shift + T) and VectorStyler? I think using Paragraph panel > Tab Stops fields to set the tab stops is not really intuitive
  4. Visual/ graphical tab stop ruler is required to make tab stop creation more intuitive in Designer, as the ones in Adobe Illustrator (the one with Ctrl + Shift + T hotkey), Publisher and VectorStyler: Tab Stop Ruler in VectorStyler
  5. Hey everyone, I wonder if this is a bug or a feature: Current behaviour: If I use the Rectangle Tool (M) and then switch to the Corner Tool (C), then work on one or more corners and release the mouse button, the tool automatically switches to the Node Tool (A) – is this a feature or a bug? Personally, I find this irritating and not really intelligible, because rarely I get the curve right with just one click and go. Expected behaviour: In Designer V1, the corner tool remained active after the rectangle was converted into a path object, which I would prefer. Can someone please check if it works the same for them and/or if it is a bug?
  6. Hello, I have a really annoying problem with Affinity Designer V2. When I'm working with any object when I switch between (mostly) Move tool and Node tool, it takes like 1 second to switch and the software seems lagged. I'm using the latest version 2. 0. 3. I'm sorry if this problem has been already discussed here. Does anyone of you have the same problem or is it just me? If so, could you recommend me some kind of an advice? Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi, When I use Designer V2 - it works fine for sometime (may be an hour or so - can't be exact on this) but then it starts slowing down and everything becomes really laggy. For example, the selection of any object, selection of a new tool from the toolbar by click or by keyboard shortcut, selection of a context menu button takes 3-5 sec or more! The files I am working on are not that heavy, in fact most of them are under 1MB (it uses many gradients and vector brush) but still it lags severely. It seems like the lag is slowly creeping in before becoming noticeable. I reminds me of some earlier version of Designer V1 that had similar lag (which version resolved it I don't remember now) . I am using Designer V2 on Windows 10 V 21H2. (19044.2251) and face no such issue with Designer V1. I have turned off hardware acceleration / Open CL after seeing some other threads on similar (but not exactly same) lag issue - however it hasn't helped. Please let me know if there's a solution that I can try or if it's a known bug when it would be fixed. Thank you.
  8. Infected This is my first drawing using Affinity Designer 2.0 (A revamped version of the colourful Lena which I have not uploaded!) It is really a test of the updates made to the Brush Dynamics in Affinity 2.0 Created a new set of inking brushes that makes use of interpolation and the new Distance options with the brush dynamics. I have found that the brushes are much smoother, faster and more responsive..I really like the ability of 'Distance' to allow for the tapering of the nozzle. Even though you have to adjust the direction of the graph! Affinity Designer 2.0 original 400 x 400mm | 300dpi Brushes inker | Comic Grunge and Concept Painter
  9. Hi, I've checked around the forum and I've seen this question come up before, so I'll mention it again. Can we please have the ability to have "Save History with Document" as a default in app preferences. I like to have my history saved with my work so I can backtrack if I don't like something in the future, and often forget to click it before I save. Thanks!
  10. 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
  11. I think I’ve probably ‘faffed about’ with this for long enough so it’s time to ‘release it into the wild’ and “go out and do something less boring instead” (as the song, which some members of a certain age might remember, goes). All done – except for certain stock images – in Affinity Designer and Photo. It’s just an experimental thing, not a real product. (You may need to click on the image and zoom in to see more detail.)
  12. Hello, I recently purchased Affinity Designer on my iPad, however, I discovered that the vector brush panel settings do not offer many options for modifying brushes. For example, there are no options for adjusting roundness or angle, while in the free app I used previously like Vectornator does have these options. I'm unsure if I'm just unable to find where are these settings, or if they dont exist. My goal is to create calligraphy designs. Thank you in advance for any responses!
  13. Hey there! I was trying to make the Twitter logo with the new Shape Builder tool to kinda "learn" this tool. As a long-time Affinity user I'm not all that familiar with it of course. I quickly found that that in my opinion it's the easiest to work with it while using the Wireframe mode. However, it makes the image a square outline of (obviously). I'd like to make a suggestion where you can disable Wireframe affecting images. This way, it would be way easier to use Wireframe in such instances.
  14. Hi all! Following suggestions, I'm reposting about this particular issue that is still present with the latest Designer release V 2.0.3 on iPad. The brushes panel is very blurred and pixelated. Brushes are difficult to see. I experience this particular issue on a daily basis. Upon restarting the app, it can be fine but then the brushes become pixelated again. It has been ongoing for me since installing Designer V2. This happens for both add-on/custom and designer brushes. Thanks!

  16. Hello, 90's kids. This one is for you. In memory of Jason David Frank, the green ranger actor.
  17. Here's a thread from 2014... It's crazy to think that you would have implemented this by now (2022) unless you're going the Reason Studios route, "We know what you need, you don't!" unless I'm missing something....
  18. Hallo, habe seit kurzem auf die neue Version von Affinity Designer 2 umgestellt. Benutze einem Mac und iPad für das designen, kann allerdings seit neuem die App nicht mehr zuverlässig nutzen, da die App kurz nach dem öffnen wieder abstürzt. Woran liegt das? Gibt es ein Update? Liebe Grüsse Silvan
  19. Could not find anything on the matter. Fill overlaps line of a trapezoid when I use perspective warp “to much”. At a specific point it simple jumps over the line. Let me know if you need the original file for analysis.
  20. I'm pulling this feature request into the light again, as it's important and missing. I am discovering how much I miss it day by day. I need and miss true, dynamic styles for graphical elements that work exactly like styles for text in Publisher. It has been requested before. The workarounds that are kindly suggested by others so that one can choose select similar are not workable for me. They are clunky, time consuming and result in poor organization of graphics. In other words, I can't use symbols, the existing "styles" or select similar for the purpose. I also create very, very varied content, so designing content to work with select same of any variation is only severely limiting. All my work involves extensive, detailed and highly varied vector graphics with or without effects, and I end up with really, really many graphical elements for which I use extensive or partial styling of the elements, where I insanely often and almost constantly want to be able to change attributes with styling. You get smarter along the way, both about how it should look and how it prints best. And I work months at a time on what I do. I'm really unhappy that it's not already implemented. Affinity Designer handles complex documents and rendering them quickly really, really well, so your customers are motivated to create complex documents and content, after all. And then you need dynamic, organised and advanced content management. And Serif, do you realize how wonderfully powerful Designer could be with true, dynamic graphic styles? 🙂
  21. In this video I share with you how to fix RTL on Affinity Designer but its work Publisher and Photo as well, Free Fix Download Link: https://leomoon.com/downloads/desktop-apps/leomoon-parsinegar/ Enjoy!
  22. Hi Community, I just start using Affinity Designer 2 a week ago or so, but I love it. I was able to use it to Design a Game demo in wick Editor. https://forum.wickeditor.com/t/affinity-and-wickeditor-game-demo/10444
