    Paintbrush

    Is there anyway to remove the big blue dot that follows the paint brush around while I am painting? It is difficult to see what I am doing as well as extremely distracting. Thank you
  2. The issue happens when I use the Vector Brush Tool. After opening a new document and selecting the brush tool, some strange lines appear when drawing random strokes. When I stop drawing, the strange lines vanish. I'm using AD latest beta build (1.7.0.251), Windows 10 and a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet. vector-brush-tool-bug.mp4
  3. Hello! I recently started using the beta and here are some of my suggestion: 1) Brush selection: whenever I select a brush but then I change the size, the selection disappears and there's no way to know which brush I am using (or is there and I don't know where to look?) I think there should always be an indication of the brush currently in use even if you change size or hardness or any other spec. 2) With the new Symmetry feature, I noticed that if I go too close to the center, instead of drawing, it selects the irradiating line and moves it. It would be nice to have an additional button to 'fix' the symmetry guide so that it's impossible to accidentally move it instead of drawing. 3) I noticed that if you have multiple canvas open, you can't detach the windows to (for example) compare two projects or use references. Hopefully this is helpful!
  4. Hello everyone, I have a huge issue with the Smudge brush tool in Affinity Photo (Mac). When I use it to blend between two colours, it messes them up completely. I tried a lot of settings, even tried the smudge pre-set from DAUB brushes library but they all do the same. Please see below screenshots of the setting used and some tweaks with flow and strength. Can anyone help me out??
  5. When I zoom out the canvas in both AD and AP I get wavy lines when using the brush tool, not super noticeable but still annoying. But when I zoom in the canvas the lines don't seem to have this problemas. I also tested in Clip Studio but didn't get any wavyness. I use a Cintiq. Also I have been experiencing Lag.
  6. I get the other tool adjustments save for dragging up or down to soften or enlarge the tool where is the instruction philipnadin@livre.co.uk
  7. Hi! I have a question. I am using Affinity Photo for not a very long time yet. Today I realized that if I make a stroke, lift the stylus and give it a once over it like wipes itself off. It turns white again. How can I change that?
  8. Anyone know how to constrain a straight line while using a brush -brush tool? on affinity Ipad. In procreate I just keep pressing at the end of the line and it turns it into a straight stroke. Any equivalents in Affinity photo Ipad
  9. Help! My favorite tool in Designer broke and won’t work even after closing the app and reopening it. All the other tools work just fine, but the brush tool in the pixel workspace won’t do anything. Can someone help me as I don’t know if it is a bug or not?

    sharpen brush

    I'm trying to create a brush of my watermark. (It's really more of a stamp. I just stamp it on. I don't draw with it like a traditional brush.) When I did this in photoshop, the watermark came out crisp and clean. In affinity designer, it comes out blurry around the edges. I have adjusted the hardness and flow to 100%, and I've tried messing with other settings, but nothing seems to work. Any ideas?
  11. Hi there! I love the Affinity products, but yesterday I encountered a problem: The brush tool is not working in Affinity Photo. Whether I create a pixel layer to paint in, or the Assistant helps create one for me, the results are the same--the brush tool will not paint. This came right after I updated to version 1.6.7. (My Mac OS is High Sierra, version 10.13.3, btw.) Thanks for an otherwise-excellent product!
  12. When using the brush tool, clicking on the More button creates as per image below. When asked to make a change: Edit>Preferences>Performance>Warp the problem was not resolved.
  13. Setting the flow of the brush tool to a lower amount in Photo Persona or the size to a larger value in Develop Persona, then the brushstroke becomes strange like "jumping" dots. I hope it's not by design.
  14. Hi all, thought I would share a quick tutorial I have done - showing how to cut out a image selection using the brush tool in Affinity Photo. Apologies if this post is in the wrong area. Regards, Grant
  15. Hi! I’m evaluating Affinity Designer as a replacement for Adobe Illustrator and I’m very impressed. However, my main tool would be the vector brush and I’m a bit disappointed with it. I find that Affinity’s vector brush re-interprets my strokes too much. I draw a curve and the resulting stroke gets transformed: it ends up being a bit too flat or a bit too curvy, a bit off. Is there a way to control the brush tool tolerance? In Adobe Illustrator, I can control brush fidelity and smoothness (see screenshot). I would say Affinity Designer’s tool would compare to Illustrator’s brush options set at 5 pixels / 5 %. I prefer setting it at 1 pixel / 1% for higher fidelity. Can something like this be done? (Please note that this doesn’t apply to the pixel brush (Pixel Persona), which follows my strokes precisely.)
  16. I really love this program and so I was trying to dabble in it for the past couple of days. To start off: The Canvas Size: 1080px * 1080px Tablet Used: Wacom Bamboo Operating System: Windows 10 (64 bit) Affinity Photo Version: 1.6.0.89 Immediately, I noticed this weird thing with the brush tool: 1. The brush I selected was a round brush with zero spacing. I noticed there were a couple of strange errors when using the brush tool fast with/without stabilizer: No Stabilizer seems to result in the following jagged lines (Circled below in purple). I am currently using a Wacom tablet and I do not have these issues with any other software. I noticed that drawing faster circles makes these jagged lines appear more frequently as well. I have tried this in multiple zoom settings. I have attached a second image to this post with test drawings (different zoom levels and stabilizer on and off). I also noticed that sometimes the stroke doesn't get detected (for instance when writing the letter 'i' ) 2. Bugs/Issues with the Canvas Zoom: There's a very weird pixelization at certain zoom levels: For comparison, here is zoom 50% and 100 % (Both of these show little to no pixelization) At 50%: Affinity Photo 50% Zoom Level At 100% Affinity Photo 100 % Zoom Level Pixelization/blurriness above 100% is natural. But in between 0-50% and 50%-100% pixelization shouldn't happen: Here's 75%: You'll notice that unlike above, the lines look somewhat zagged at the edges. 75 % Zoom Level Here's 45%: 45 % Zoom Level In these zoom levels, regardless of the size of my brush (ex. 60px vs. 20px), the pixelization exists. In comparison, this pixelization doesn't occur in Photoshop at these low zoom levels: Photoshop Ex 33 % Zoom Level *** I would like to note that when testing these strokes in Affinity Photo, I did not have photoshop or any other application open (in case the stroke issues were caused by the computer being held up) ***
  17. Hi there - can anyone tell me why the brush tool isnt working all the sudden? I tried moving the layer to top, chaning colour, restarting the app... nothing. Y? The actions are showing , but nothing actually painting.
  18. Kinda bummed :/ can't use the Brush tool (running on iPad Pro 9.7", iOS 11 Beta 2). Apple Pencil and finger painting don't work. I understand this might be a beta compatibility thing but just letting you know :) Sometimes when it works, I see a white stripe on screen, which covers the pixel. Keep up the great work, guys!

    [AD] Brush Path is very jagged.

    Hi Guys, Looked over the forum to see if there was a report for something similar. I came across this while trying out some brushes in AD. I'm sure it's not the driver or the tablet, but I'm not sure if this issue is limited to only the pixel persona of AD or extends over to AP as well, you'll have to see. For evidence, please see one of my examples attached. The issue is that the brushstroke path looks like it's been composed out of polygons instead of a smooth freehand curve.
  20. Hi there, I have been experiencing crashes on AD 1.5.4. It sometimes happens randomly and I understand that it just happens sometimes; however, today, I have experienced 5 crashes when I go to pixel persona and select brush pain tool. I wonder if anyone knows how to prevent this problem. The crash doesn't happen every time I select the brush tool in pixel persona but once in a while. I'm using AD on macOS Sierra 10.12.3. Thank you.
  21. Hi all, Any chance of adding a few little features to the brush tool? I do use the brush tool quite a bit, and in photoshop there are options like brush cycle with shortcut keys(<>). It would be great to see it in photo/designer. Maybe even add a feature where you rotate brushes with a shortcut key instead of having to make lots of versions of the same brush? Or an brush opacity change option that is similar to the hardness and size change options? (ctl+opt+mouse direction) It makes work flows super easy versus going to sliders to change options. Thanks, Hillhouse
  22. Hi all, use the brush tool and create several curves (paths). When using Undo (Cmd+z) and normally you should be able to continue straight forward. Most of the times you can go on using the brush tool. But sometimes it switches to curve points (although the brush tool is active) which prevents from painting. Maybe it has to do with the speed of using CMD-Z or that I am using a Wacom Intuos PT S. One of the cheaper "beginner" tablets, but with touch-functionality of the tablet. And when using it, the hell of the hand is laying on it. I can't really say. Thanks, Stefan.
  23. I have been using AD & AP for one year now, most of my work is in graphic design and food photography, which I use AP to cut around an image, the choices are either the lasso tool or brush tool; I'm used to the pen tool being an illustrator user for 20 some years. Most tutorial videos utilize the brush tool combined with the refining method, I was wondering is it possible to convert the marching lines in the Freehand Lasso tool to vector lines, this will be really ideal to fix certain spots. And would like to hear other opinions what is the best method to cut around in a photo, I'm sure Freehand Lasso tool in AD in the pixel persona will do the same as AP, lasso tool. Thanks.
  24. hello, I'm a beginner in affinity desinger, and want to draw some illustration by wacom. As the picture show, I have no idea how to make my circle perfect. Because when I want to close a circle, they usually cross badly. To improve, now I use node tool to make it better. Is there another solution about? Something like smooth tool in adobe illustrator. And I also can't find Eraser in Draw Persona, so I click white color and use it as Eraser, is it correct? thanks for help and any keywords!
  25. Just to let the Affinity team know: Affinity Photo 1.4.1 crashes, using these steps: 1. open a picture 2. use filter frequency separation 3. setting a radius 4. clicking quick mask 5. selecting brush tool --> crash Regards opalla_de
