  1. After tracing an object with the pen tool, expanding the stokes to fills and then dividing them all with the divide boolean, some parts disappear. Selecting all and expanding a second or third time does not seem to make a difference. Here is a video of the issue and I attached the file thanks lobster.afdesign
  2. Hi, Using boolean operations like Add on a bunch of shapes results in unexpected behavior. I know I can get around this issue by using "Layer > Geometry > Merge curves". AD-2021-02-22-1.mov
  3. Can we add one more tool to the boolean set? A "merge" tool like in illustrator? The current "add" tool reminds me a lot of the "Unite" tool in Illustrator. It's like a scorched earth approach where everything is combined into one shape with one set of properties. The "merge" tool in Illustrator allows object with differing attributes to cut into one another like a cookie-cutter does. Also, I can put a fill shape of another color behind a vector fill with a negative shape and it will essentially fill that negative space. This is such an essential part of my workflow. I watch others forced to
  4. Using the new 1.9.0.10 beta, I am trying to add together several expanded former strokes and fills to make one united vector shape. Each time I do so, a large portion of it just disappears. How are we supposed to be doing this aside from tracing the outside with a single pen stroke? Also, I have to keep switching over from the alternate fill mode to the winding repeatedly because when I grab a part of a fill and pull a node of it over top another, it just creates a negative space where they overlap otherwise. Lastly, we're still getting crazy number of nodes when expanding and dividing strok
  5. Hi. Attempted to create a simple crest, made two objects. Now trying to add them together, getting result as follows: Affinity Designer file in question: crest-boolean-add-2-curves-fail.afdesign Thanks for explaining why the ADD boolean fails and perhaps a solution how to fix that inside designer, it happens to me quite often. Nothing like that ever happens to me in Inkscape, VectorStyler nor Illustrator. Edit: After reversing the direction of one of the curves boolean ADD works and the result is as expected. So I guess the thread can now be closed.
  6. I am still having regular issues with boolean operations.I know this has been reported before but it's driving me insane, especially as it's a fundamental issue that's been happening for months. This is just one example of many similar issues I've had with boolean adds/subtracts/intersections. In this file I'm trying to perform a boolean add on two curves. No matter the position in the layer tree or the order I select the two curves I get strange issues and, as far as I can tell, the only workaround is to delete nodes until there is no longer a failure and then manually recreate the m
  7. I traced over this mascot in a photo in affinity on the ipad. I first traced the outer shape and then made a new layer and added the detail shapes on that layer - then opened it in Affinity Designer on desktop. I'd like to take the fills on both layers and compress them down into one layer with the green and orange parts "cut out' of the blue underneath - none of the boolean operations accomplish this. When i use subtract - I actually get issues with expanded empty strokes becoming an issue. How would I compress everything and "cut it out" of the blue base fill shape? thanks
  8. All I want to accomplish is have the “outline” of the horse shape be transparent rather than white. I’d like to use the design on Cricut (I’ve been able to cheat and erase extra white so far) and on business cards and platforms with colored backgrounds so the white is not ideal. I’m trying to subtract is from the back shape and am having a hard time. Help? I have a screen recording and file copy attached 😬 IMG_0180.MP4 pdr logo.afdesign
  9. 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.
  10. As many of you I recently moved from Illustrator / Photoshop to Affinity's alternatives because of the pricing issue. Design has become more of a hobby, and I can't justify a monthly subscription. Overall, I am really impressed with the applications (Designer / Photo, mac and iPad), but one thing I really painfully miss from Illustrator, though, is I heavily relied on the Pathfinder, more specifically the "Divide" operation. I was used to, for example, divide shapes using a curve, or divide multiple shapes to very reliably. As many pointed out, the experience in Designer is less than per
  11. I'm just getting started with Designer and am excited about its potential. Excellent work by the Affinity team! I create logos and lettering primarily, and with my method of building shapes with the pen tool, I intersect my line segments in order to be able to edit anchor points and handles of one segment without altering the adjacent segment (see attachment). With Illustrator's Unite function in the Pathfinder palette, I am able to divide a single shape where the paths intersect and delete the unwanted areas outside my desired final shape, while the unwanted overlaps inside the shape are
  12. Hi, everybody, I'm a new customer! I took advantage of the "homeworking" discount this period! I had already tried Designer but now I can finally work on it. I'm trying to understand how he thinks in the combination of shapes, since I'm not a Master in graphics, I can't understand how to create this simple pencil shape so that it's 1 shape only! I attach a gif, I'm stuck, I can't figure out what to do so that the two vertical lines of the pencil remain (the ones in the middle). I've tried dozens of different ways, with curves without curves, with shapes, booleans...😰 Where am I wrong? Tha
  13. I think Boolean - Divide tool has problem as attached video. divide.mp4
  14. Hi, even in 1.8.3 with announced boolean fixes, the add option unfortunately still making unwanted points on curves. For example the heart icon I "welded" from two identical halves. I expect to have just two point at the central axis. After the boolean operation there are even two more.
  15. I am trying to use the boolean tool but the operation leaves a thin unwanted line, kindly help.
  16. when I use bolean and experience a bug happened, affinty designer uses a lot of my RAM memory, and it can't work properly the photo below is proof
  17. Hi In 1.8.3 i tried to do some boolean operations over two single circles (Tried both as editable shape and converted to curves) The results are… pretty absurd. This is super basic boolean. I've attached the example file. Steps: 1 - do a single circle with circle shape tool. • 2 - duplicate with Alt-drag • 3 - Do a boolean operation and wonder about the mysteries of life. Is super weird. EDIT: ADDED INFO: I've been unable to repeat the error. It seems to only happen to the shapes currently in the example file. as soon as I create a new shape, it works we
  18. I miss this Illustrator-function. Input: Overlapping shapes with different colors and blend modes. Output: Cut out shapes for each intersected part affected by colors below, color equivalent in normal blend mode. (No rasterizing, no pixels.)
  19. Hello guys i'm little bit stuck whit a very strange bug never happens before to me. Let me explain better, when i goes to blend those curves already expanded by strokes by Boolean op AF start to load like he is doing a super complex operation that should be instead very easy. pls help me to understand if depends on my pc that is not brand new but should runs Designer nicely for my kinds of works 😂 How you can see on the screen i was able to merge the first snake but not the second or third, even to mention doing all three together... that I thought should works easy , so th
  20. Hello, Affinity Team, with the new version 1.8.2.620 you have once again done a great job and got Designer more stable. First of all big praise for that! Now to the problem: In the new version 1.8.2.620 I read the point "Fixed several boolean operations and expand stroke issues on simple geometry or compound objects" and was really happy! But after the installation the big disillusionment, "it" is still there! Please try to solve the problem once and for all, I have a lot of work here and can't get any further. I have to export my drawings to Illustrator and edit them there
  21. Hello, I have converted both rectangles to curves and then try to merge them using the Boolean operation. but the result is unexpected and the arrow shape breaks apart. why the shapes don't merge perfectly ? See attached video and Affinity Designer file. Thank you, Boolean-Operation-Bug.mp4 boolean-operation.afdesign
  22. Just two ordinary shapes made with the pen tool, but if you try to union them, this happens: Demo file: Boolean Bug.afdesign
  23. 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
  24. I discovered by chance that errors occur in "destructive" and "non-destructive" Boolean operations. Here is an example of "non-destructive" Boolean operations: boolean_operations.afdesign
