  1. There was meant to be a new feature in 1.9 where you can hold CMD to rotate the canvas with the scroll wheel - I noticed it as an option in the "Tools" preferences too. For some reason this feature doesn't work for me at all. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug? I'm using a Logitech MX Master 3 mouse on an iMac.
  2. Is there a way to convert a Pen Tool path you make into a selection. There is a selection from layer I can do, but I would like to just convert the path into a selection, without having to create extra layers.
  3. An oddly specific bug I just discovered in Photo - unsure of whether this shows up in Designer too. While sketching out an ornate frame design, I used the symmetry tool with a brush, and everything proceeded as usual. I then used Shift to create a straight line and noticed that the stroke automatically coloured certain parts red - screenshot attached. I tried a few different brushes and ended up with the same result (as you can see), but only when using my tablet pen/stylus - this didn't happen when clicking with the mouse and holding Shift. The layers I worked on didn't have any FX applied, and red was not a colour I had selected (my foreground and background colours were black and white). I've done a quick screen recording for reference: https://youtu.be/blPZMQsAhNQ It's not embedded as a glitch into the document/file though, as I can easily use a "Colour Overlay" effect to change it back to black.
  4. Not a biggie, but a slight annoyance. My Freehand Selection Tool cursor icon keeps getting stuck on either the "View Tool" or "Move Tool" icons. Sometimes it starts with the usual Freehand Slection icon, but if I switch between tools the icon doesn't change back. I can still make selections as usual, but since the View Tool icon (hand) is quite bulky it can be quite tricky to make accurate selections as I can't see exactly which point the cursor is selecting from. Photo attached for reference.
  5. Hi, I'm new to use Affinity Photo and Affinity Design. Till now I used Photoshop. I'm missing some function in Affinity. Can someone tell me how to rotate the canvas in Affinity Photo and how to change the Brush size with the mouse like Photoshop.
  6. hi, I have a question - do not you plan to enter Affinity on Android devices? - today devices with this system are able to support the software often have better solutions than those in Apple - an example may be Note series from Samsung, these phones and tablets have a great hardware specification as well as have an excellent S-pean
  7. When is the pen tool gonna be fixed because every time i want to cut somthing out it crashes? I cant do the things i want anymore with affinity. Pls fix this fast. Thanks!
  8. Here are some Cat-Silhouette assets to share, mostly house cats and a few big cats silhouettes. The corresponding assets file: cats.afassets
  9. I am trying to upload some newly purchased Luts into my Affinity photo software but for the life of me I can not find the folder for the pre-existing luts with the program to add on to them. I've searched every folder relating to the program on my computer but there is nothing there that dictates the pre-existing luts so I can add more to them. I.e. presets. Let me know if I'm searching in all the wrong places or if affinity is just that unorganized with their files and felt like sending people on great journeys.
  10. I have just updated Affinity Photo to the latest version 1.9.0.932. Since the update when I export as JPG or TIFF it only displays save as Affinity File. However it does appear to save as the correct file.
  11. 'Export' from Photo - png and gifs are fine, but jpgs only want to 'save as' affinity files. Same problem with Designer.
  12. Can I own Affinity on my windows PC and Mac without having to buy the software on each device? I work on my PC at home and on my Mac when im on the go? Is there anything I can do without having to buy the program(s) twice? Will greatly appreciate any response. Thank you!
  13. The new timelapse feature is something I've been patiently waiting for, and am incredibly excited to start using with the official release of 1.9! After experimenting a bit with the beta, I've noticed some potential serious pitfalls for the way that the feature is currently intended to be implemented, and I have a few suggestions on how to improve on this. Firstly, the reasons why this feature may be limiting is as follows: You would need to make sure that you don't forget to toggle "Save History with Document" otherwise your entire process timelapse (hours worth of work) would be gone - I've done this a few times already. You're limited to your history states, and some projects (particularly illustration type projects) involve thousands of brush strokes and adjustments which would make it near impossible to ensure that your computer can save that many history states without getting really bogged down. That means you will need to cap your undo limit and subsequently override old history states meaning a chunk of your timelapse would likely be lost. Savings those history states will also create incredibly large file sizes, which is very impractical for anyone looking to use this feature. My ideas. In the old days (before Procreate along with its timelapse feature was born) there was a little app/widget called Schnapps for Mac - http://schnappsformac.com While the website is still up, I'm sure this app is no longer functioning or being updated in 2021, but it basically saved a snapshot of your canvas every time you saved your document. It had no direct impact on your document or file size, and had no relation to your history states or undo limit (which can be quite volatile if you aren't careful/mindful at all times). Upon export you could choose your desired video format (or looping gif) and also the playback rate. My proposal. Would it not be better for Affinity to use a similar approach? Instead of using the "Save History with Document" option, you can include a "Record Timelapse" option under the "File" menu, which can be on by default to avoid any accidental loss - or include it in the "New Document" dialog when creating a new document. Every time you save a document, the app can save a 1080px (1080px in height, and the width can be dictated by the canvas aspect ratio) snapshot in a folder within the app's program files which can then be recalled and assembled by the app when you select "Export Timelapse". That way the user won't ever see the snapshots or have to deal with big file sizes with limited history states as the timelapse files would be stored elsewhere on their computer. If, in the future, Affinity ever changed the way that the files are created, the timelapse files would remain completely unaffected since they would be existing snapshots, not past history states. Timelapses move pretty fast, so there's no reason to include every single step of the process in the playback, so in the long run every save-state would probably be a better option that ever history-state - either that or saving a snapshot, say, every 10 history states or so. Schnapps was a very simple and lightweight app, but it was incredibly effective at doing what it was designed to do. The only examples could find that I did with Schnapps (back while I was still a student) were these short videos - I did a little bit of post editing with them to add transitions and video elements, but the timelapses show the process: https://vimeo.com/111345964 and https://vimeo.com/107825113 I completely understand that the Affinity team has done a lot of work with the timelapse feature already, but I can assure you that nipping these potential future issues in the bud before it's actually released would make it a lot easier than accepting the limitations now and getting stuck them in the future after the feature is officially released. A lot of creative apps (Procreate, Sketchbook Pro, ArtStudio Pro, Clip Studio Paint, etc) now have timelapse features and have perfected them already, and it's become a highly sought after feature for the 'modern creative' so there's quite a bit of pressure to get it running smoothly and properly. Just my two cents, and thanks for making it through the super long post!
  14. I have a Macbook Pro 16 with lots of Ram. I updated to Big Sur and then latest Affinity for Big Sur. Now I sometimes have trouble selecting layers. I have to tap them several times. Also Affinity photo is much slower. Help!
  15. The Official Serif Affinity workbooks were advertised in a recent email. Buy the book at discount and get free t-shirt. I already had purchased the Designer workbook and thought it was a great way to learn. I took up the offer from Serif and bought the Photo workbook. I was expecting the sale to be getting rid of the old books on hand. If it was different it wouldn't be that much different. Amazingly enough, I didn't realize it was updated for 1.7. Is the Designer book updated for 1.7? Is there going to be a Publisher book soon?
  16. Hi, In Sketch and Photoshop it's possible to make timeline animations. Are there any plans for Affinity? I'm talking about something like this: https://timeline.animaapp.com/ Regards, David

  20. I'm working in affinity for last 6 months now and I despise Illustrator. I can't stop talking about how anti-intuitive is Illustrator. But they have an undoubtedly nice feature called package. It saves the raw file, the fonts involved and other things plus a report in a folder. Can we do the same in Affinity somehow? That report document is very important when we work for clients or with other designers to know what kind of colour space and font and etc etc was used on the specific project.
  21. I can't even begin to explain how useful an Affinity alternative to the Quickshape (Procreate) or Snapline (Adobe) feature would be. 😊 The ability to draw a pixel line, circle, or rectangle by hand, and then hold the stylus/mouse down for a second for it to become a 'perfect' shape. It would be a total game changer and save so much time, especially for anyone using Affinity apps for illustration or digital artwork.
  22. Hi, Measuring Guides stopped working. It used to work fine. I have tried holding the command key however it is still not working. I'm using Affinity designer version 1.6.1 on my mac. I'm facing the same issue with Affinity Photo. Any advise?
  23. I must bring many of my former Adobe files (Illustrator and InDesign) into AffDesigner and AffPUblisher after saving them in Adobe in the necessary Adobe format. They import, but of course the programming approach to layers being so different means that I must recreate these layers in Affinity. Sometimes a layer will come over, as well as the objects or texts in that layer. Most of the time, however, each individual parts of a graphic appear as a multitude of separate object in Affinity. One big problem is that entire paragraphs of text come over a separate lines (multi-lines). I understand why that it is in the transfer process, but I also wonder if Affinity has anyway to bring them into a single paragraph, short of copy/paste. I imagine that Adobe exports objects as a PDF, as SVGs or in the case of text on a path properly oriented but as individual outlined letters. Given what must be great challenges of going from Adobe to Affinity, I am happy for what I do get even though the reorganization task is tedious, but I also wonder if anyone has found ways to make the cumbersome Adobe format come more faithfully into Affinity (where thankfully it is much easier to work with!). In the past I have found that transferring each of my muiiltitute of layers and sub-layers separately sometimes worked, but recently it has not. Is this a new Adobe sabotage or perhaps dependent up many factors not visible to the user? I don't expect any magic solution, but any help would be much appreciated. PS: Yes, I could copy each text box in the InDesign doc, paste it into APub and reformat it, but that is very time consuming if a more effective way exists.
  24. Does anyone Know if Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo support the use in the Veikk A30 Pen Tablet? Really need to know im thinking about buying it and im really need to Know if i will be able to use it Thank a lot
