  1. This may of been mentioned before and I do apologise if so. This was done in photo but I presume this happens with the others as well, I've chosen the donut Tool shape for which I've opened up to get part of one. The issue is with the size measurement being that it take the full size (left) of the donut instead of part size (right) of diagram attached. I had to rasterise the right image to illustrate the issue I was having Has this been over looked or is it a setting with I have not found yet? Kind Regards
  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. I was recently producing a set of icons and encountered an annoying error when expanding shapes with rounded corners. I've previously posted this on the subreddit, which you can view here – https://www.reddit.com/r/Affinity/comments/6p9fjk/designer_expanded_strokes_are_not_straight/ Essentially when you work at smaller scales and use a border radius of less than 25% (I was using 15% I think) the edges are not perfectly straight as you'd expect. This is more obvious the lower the radius value and the smaller the stroke width. Examples: Before expanding – http://imgur.com/e6JStLV After expanding – http://imgur.com/f8C2plU To clarify this isn't a just visual bug, the actual vector data is affected, as though the anchor points have had their handles adjusted. I'm able to replicate this in version 1.5.5 by creating a rounded shape 35px wide with a stroke of 0.4pt, corner radius to 5 and using the expand stroke command. Results – http://imgur.com/a/ttNuT Worryingly. this still happens when you scale the shape up first. I tried it at 350px wide with the stroke scaled with the object and the curvature is still occurring though it isn't as obvious unless you actually look for it. For what it's worth I'm using a Macbook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) with OSX 10.11.6.
  4. Hello, I have just bought affinity designer but come from a background of using adobe illustrator. I would like to smooth lines on a handrawn (ipad pro apple pencil) imported pdf - using apple draw to create vectors on ipad and transfer files as a pdf in creative cloud to maintain layers whilst awaiting affinity designer for ipad pro - The imported pdf vector drawing has many anchor points as you would expect. In adobe illustrator I could use the smooth tool to quickly remove number of anchor points whilst maintaing a handdrawn quality. 1) is this possible in affinity designer? If so what is the tool called and where could I find it 2) Also I would use the path simplify from drop down menu in adobe illustrator to smooth and reduce anchor points - is there something similar in affinity designer. I am working through the tutorials but these are some of my first issues I have come across. 3) Would also appreciate if there is a list of all the available tools so I don't need to keep asking in the forum Thank you affinity - really enjoying using designer
  5. When a file that contains curved shapes with a inside or outside aligned stroke is exported to PDF or SVG the strokes will be converted to an unacceptably high number of anchor points. See attached. Test.afdesign Test.pdf Test.svg
  6. Hi All, First of all, let me tell you I love designer more and more every day. As I work more and more with Affinity Designer (coming from Illustrator), I run into some annoyances that force me to switch to illustrator once in a while. While some are just missing features that will be addressed in the future, this one —I think— is a bug. When I draw a circle (or any other curve) and use "Expand Stroke" in the "Layer" menu this is the result: While I would assume this as a result: Way too many anchor points are added and make the curve almost can't be edited easily after expanding. Is there a way I can avoid these issues? Or is this something you can fix in future updates? Hope this explanation makes sense to you. Please let me know if you'd need more details or examples!
  7. Would love to have the same functionality of spacebar as in Photoshop/Illustrator where you could hold down space when resizing or using pen tool to move the object/anchor point around! It increases the workflow speed by a lot! :)
  8. I love the program and safely buy the final version The adaptation is being very easy and some questions have already been answered but I have 3 questions regarding the splines I do with the pencil or paintbrush tool: 1) sometimes to make a path too many anchor points appear. Is there any way to regulate plotting fidelity to not have so many anchor points? perhaps in the Mac version can be done? 2) it is probably a stupid question but can not find the way to join two lines made with pen or pencil or brush in one. 3) You can change the gradient angle? I do not find that option in the "Fill" tool Best Regards
  9. Hi there, I just checked out the trial version of Affinity Designer, and so far I'm very impressed by its speed and simplicity. However, I'm wondering if there's any possibility to adjust length of the two anchor point handles simultaneously. In the Affinity tutorial it seems this can be done by pressing Ctrl and move one point. But this doesn't work for me – this only adjusts the length of one point. Is there another option that I need to activate before? Thanks, Nils
  10. Is there any way to turn off the annoying but useful anchor point handles - when I am creating numerous, close anchor points the handles pop up and prevent me from adding new anchor points where I want to add them. I've just been moving on to other areas and returning later to add mor but this is annoying and slowing down design. Is there anyway to turn those anchor point handles off so they do not automatically appear and interfere with adding more anchor points? Thank you for your help. I love Affinity Designer....
  11. Hi, I was wondering if there is a tool in Affinity Designer that would allow me to do what "Add Anchor Points" does in Illustrator (Object > Path > Add Anchor Points). Basically what I'm trying to do is add an anchor point directly between two anchor points on a shape. So, if I create a circle which has 4 anchor points, I'd like to turn it into a circle with 8 anchor points that are evenly spaced. Is there a way to do this? Thanks!
  12. Hello, Is there a way to simply add anchor points between two points on a curve that has already been drawn? Thanks :)
  13. It would be good to have the ability to constrain control points for vector curves to guides / grids / elements. At present you can constrain control points to 45° increments by holding the shift key whilst dragging a control point from an end point. For really accurate work on eg. display type it would be great to be able to snap control points to guidelines/intersections, to be sure of the shape of a curve, in both angle and length. Separate but related question: can you manually set co-ords for control points? Thanks, J
