  1. Hello, I'm using Affinity Designer almost every days for the last 2 years and everything was fine, until i update it to the 1.8.5.703 version. Now, i can't use Boolean operations anymore : it freeze when i try to do so. Sometime it works, but most of the time it doesn't. When it freeze, i have to close the window to close AD. What can i do ? Affinity Designer is my working tool n°1 ! Thanks for your help ! Edit : i tried to desinstall and reinstall Affinity Designer and the 1.8.4 update, but boolean operations still freeze AD... Edit 2 : actually, it seems that it's only with an old afdesign.file that i have this issue. But i really need to work again on this file, that i first create only 4 months ago, not so long ! Any tips ?
  2. I'm expecting smooth cuts when I subtract the lines from the circle. I happened before but i made an error, now it keeps staggering near the top few lines. Any pointers as to what im doing wrong? The circle and rectangles have been converted to curves. I have tried doing them individually but keep getting the same error.
  3. I’m working on seamless pattern tiles in Affinity Designer and need to keep objects inside a square. Everything touching/outside of the square edge needs to be cropped. I’ve simplified my question on the attached image. The problem is: It looks like the Boolean crop operation can only work on two objects at a time. With hundreds of objects, how should I crop the parts outside of the square? (with different colour I am unable to create compound shapes.) p.s. clipping, masking, hiding the parts out of view not an option.
  4. Almost every time I run a boolean operation to divide or unite vector curves in AD, it freezes on me as shown in attached image. I have to force quit and restart the app and try again in smaller doses or move it to Illustrator and try again there. I have an iMac with 12GB of RAM - I don't know if the issue is I need more RAM, or if it's still a bug Affinity is fixing? I ordered more RAM recently, so I'll be able to try it again after installing it to see - but I wanted to see if anyone had any info pertaining to this issue - thanks!
  5. I do a lot of logo designs and I'm running into some issues, when I'm building a shape using multiple pieces of geometry, and want to "Add" them together to create a single compound shape it sometimes leaves micro-gaps. It's most notable when you "Divide" overlapping shapes, and then "Add" them again - it will always leave these gaps and it's really annoying. When I do "Add" I expect it to fill in those micro-gaps. I wish we had the Shape Builder tool already
  6. Hi ,I am not able to do the Boolean operation in iPad.what ever I click it does only addition and I saw a tutorial and in that selected shape will change color of the other layer down .it didn't happen in mine . what am I doing wrong?
  7. Good day! As you can see, there are 2 objects in the attachment: a circle and a line. I was trying to divide the circle into 2 pieces using the divide Boolean operation but failed. I believe the circle is supposed to be divided into 2 pieces, but that's not happening. But why?
  8. Hello, First, a disclaimer : I am a beginner as I have just bought Affinity Designer 1.6.1 this morning. While following the tutorials "For Beginners Too (Affinity Designer)", I tried the non destructive add operation. However, it looks like there is a problem. Would you mind having a look at the youtube video named "Problem with Affinity Designer" (https://youtu.be/-wd89ZfpTbs) (30 seconds) and tell me wether it's a bug or not ? Regards, clamb
  9. Hello guys, I was wondering if it is possible to do non desctructive boolean operation and yes it is possible. My only regret is that is very hidden. Wouldn't it be possible to create a "compound" group directly in the "Layers"? Say you select several shapes and you have the option to create compound group with a default boolean operation which you can change for every object afterwards? Other thing, it is really hidden that you have to alt-click a boolean operation to make it non desctructive. Would it be possible at least to add something in the tooltip and even better indicate on the boolean operation there is more that one op? You could fore example popup a menu if you click and hold on the boolean operation. Cheers, DrM0lek
  10. I love the corner tool - awesome stuff. But as soon as I apply a boolean operation to shapes (add, subtract, intersect, divide, combine) their corners become baked and the ability to edit corners is lost. I imagine that it *might* be possible for any unaffected corners to retain their corner tool setting (i.e. existing corners with a corner tool setting applied, that are not created or changed by the boolean operation being applied). This would be a great help. Currently when ever I want to apply a boolean operation on a shape that has a corner, I first have to zero the corner, remember what it was, then reapply it after the boolean operation is applied.
