The project I'm working on will need to use 'tiling patterns' for some of the graphics. Currently the only option for patterns in Affinity Designer is to use the Fill tool to import a Bitmap. This may be saved as a style. The bitmap will not and cannot be updated, and the size and tiling will scale relative to the object, rather than the document. Working with patterns this way is so terrible that it's definitely not fit for the task, so Affinity Designer is starting to really drag down the project. Does it seem likely we will see any sort of patterned area fill in the next six months, or should I abandon Affinity Designer for now and go for Illustrator?
I'm enjoying playing around with AD and I've discovered I can create styles using my extensive collection of seamless tiling bitmap fills so nice! Now my next question is say I wanted to share a style that uses a bitmap fill does a copy of the applied bitmap get stored within the AD styles file? or would I need to supply the bitmap externally in a zip file? Of course I would only share bitmaps that I have created and have the the rights to share. :)
dangerman2000 posted a topic in (Pre 1.7) MacOS resolved threadsWhen selecting a portion of a bitmap, the marquee tool does not delete an area. It also does not "cut" (cmd+x) a selected area. Steps to reproduce: 1) Place an image in your document with the place tool 2) Select the "Pixel Persona" mode at the top left of application 3) Select the portion of the bitmap that you would like to delete or cut 4) Press the delete key or the cut key (Cmd+x) 5) BUG: the whole bitmap disappears instead of just the cut or deleted portion. There are work-arounds, such as painting the seleccted area with the correct color. It would be super nice if this behaved consistent with all other selection tools. I realize that there is a crop tool, but sometimes you want to remove a portion of an image. Ex. a screen shot of a form filed and you want to replace the text. Nice work on the app though... kudos and I'm really looking forward to seeing this product give the incumbant a run for their money.
