  1. I've been experiencing three issues related to the layers panel and layer selection ever since I updated to Big Sur. Firstly, when I have multiple layers selected and go to hide them all (by either clicking the checkmark or menu option), the last/bottom layer in layers panel will appear to be deselected even though it actually isn't and can still be manipulated along with the other layers that still appear selected. The second one is harder to describe and I haven't figured out what causes it yet (I think it might happen when quickly selecting between different layers in the layers panel, but don't quote me on that), but on multiple occasions I've had the current layer I'm working on appear to deselect itself (but like with the bug mentioned above, isn't and can still be manipulated). That layer, or any other layer, then can't be (re)selected, often thinking I want to change the layer name when I'm just trying to select it. It's like I'm soft locked out of the layers panel entirely. It isn't until I click an empty part on the canvas, to essentially to deselect everything and have nothing selected, am I able to work in the layers panel again. Lastly, when moving layers around in the panel, often times the layer I have selected won't move to its new location in the panel but the layer above or below it that isn't selected will be moved instead. It feels to me that I experience this more when I'm scrolling quickly through the layers while dragging a layer to its new spot in the panel and when I try to move a free layer into an group that's already been formed. Hopefully that all makes sense.
  2. I am experiencing a bug with the latest Affinity Designer version (1.8.5.703) : When exporting to a PDF file, the different layers are not exported as they should ... Once the PDF file is opened in Adobe Reader (and Adobe Illustrator) the layers preview pane does not show any layers. The bug is repeated as many times on Windows 10 version and this on two different computers. I specify that the bug occurs by using the menu> file> export ... as well as by using persona export ... This is particularly annoying when exporting PDF files with CutContour and cutting printing ... I hope you will solve the problem without difficulties and wish you good luck ... receive my full consideration. Guillaume
  3. I've been piecing together a large image of the first level of the Sierra/GameArts video game "Thexder" from many screenshots. I open each screenshot PNG in Photo, crop off the bottom game UI, copy the image, close it, and paste that copied content into my main document. As I paste these shots into my primary document, the sharp solid colors in the image start to degrade at their edges, in ways you would see if you resampled an image to scale it. I am NOT scaling anything. Sometimes it's REALLY bad upon pasting a new chunk of image into the main document. In THIS specific case, it seems that undoing the paste, zooming WAY out in the document, and pasting again results in a correct paste (this time it pastes in at the top left corner of my document, where as before it pasted where I was working). Moving layers around shows the color shifts happening as part of rendering the layers on screen, but merging down, etc, will eventually start to show that the edges of hard color borders are "smudged" with slight color shifts. Anyone who plans to use Affinity Photo to create pixel art should beware. This could be especially problematic when changing between set palettes and full-color. It also has me wondering how much degradation is going on all the time. How much blur is Affinity Photo adding to everyone's images while they're working on them, unsuspectingly? I only noticed this because of working at the pixel level, zoomed in at them, and knowing the explicit limit of 16-colors in these screenshots (the game only shows 16 colors from an MCGA palette). My main document is a regular Affinity Photo document. I am importing PNG images from Boxer (DOSBox shell in Mac OS) which are 320x200. I've attached an image showing what's happening. I have zoomed way in so that you can see the individual pixels (very important with pixel art). The left side of the image shows sharper content while the right side has areas that have been through layer movement and merging down. One edge even turned partially transparent. EDIT: It seems to be getting progressively worse as I extend my canvas to the right and downward, as the older content to the upper left does not seem degraded.
  4. Sadly not good experience while painting. like stroboscope with every brush move between halfres brush strokes. Keeping me back from using Photo more... macOS 10.15.7 iMac Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017 Radeon Pro 580 8 GB flickering.mov
  5. zoom tool context toolbar bug: - also I would expect that I can drag the arrow to set the scale that way. it's stuck in place (just in some case it moves with mouse like on the beginning of screen recording) - you have to click somewhere beside. - slider with arrow doesn't reflect (update) when scale is changed in number-box next to it.

  6. Bug Using either the . or delete keys on the iPad Pro/iPad Air 4 attachable Magic Keyboard return (null) when entering a form field for an attribute (I.e. document dimensions, transform tools, stroke size, etc.) The expected result would be 10.4 instead 10(null)4 centimeters when entering a value into the transform or other tools. Delete doesn’t remove text either. For example, if I enter 10.5 and hit delete the then 4, the output should be 10.4 but the systems renders it as 10(null)5(null)4. Temporary Workaround Can be corrected only by using the touch interface to use the calculator’s . And <x| Virtual key. Devices Used: iPad Air 4 (2020) on iPadOs 14.2 Magic Keyboard
  7. Computer and Software are up to date, but Designer keeps crashing when I try to enter export persona.

  9. Past 3 days encountering random crashes. Working on a simple node edit AD crashed, returning to the iPad’s Home Screen. Returning to the project it would randomly crash regardless of the attempted operation. Crash has been occurring after 3-8 mins of use. It consistently happens when attempting to return to my gallery from any project. I updated to iOS 14 2 days ago with the same results. App Store auto updates turned ‘on’. Help!
  10. TL;DR: Is there a way to add a background image to a document using a picture frame while avoiding the picture immediately becoming detached from the master? I ran into an issue where detaching an element on a master page resulted in the same element being detached when the styles are applied. It's a bit tricky to explain, but it basically boils down to problems with child masters carrying over too much information. Step 1: Created a master, on which I based all of my subsequent masters (Level 1). At some point I tested adding a background here and changed my mind. Only partially relevant to this conversation, but it does have some impact. Step 2: Created a child template by applying that master to another template. I have three templates created this way, each with a different background texture. (Level 2) Step 3: Applied Level 2 masters to child masters for slight variations among pages that share a textured background. (Level 3) Step 4: Created a few pages based on Level 3 masters. I didn't realize this until later, but adding a photo to a picture frame detaches the element from the master, and this change carries over across subsequent masters/pages. I see no way to fix this without entirely recreating the document, unless it is possible to "reattach" an element that was detached from the master. In the attached images, you can see that my change at Level 2 doesn't carry into the Level 3 master or the page based on the master. In other words, once a frame becomes detached from the master, it also becomes detached on child masters and pages.
  11. I copied and pasted layers of vector art from an .ai file into my Designer document. When I resized the document to fit on my workspace, distortions in the design were introduced at particular points in the scaling process. Attached images: The first shows the original (correct) drawing. The second remains correct. The distortions occur around the "antennae" of the stylized insect in the 3rd and subsequent images, and appear as spike-like protrusions and odd scaling of the other elements of the drawing. I would hate to have to re-create this from scratch in Designer. How can I scale these vectors without creating distortions? Another question: I originally tried to work on my .ai file in Designer without copying and pasting the layers into a new document. When I tried to anchor the layers and resize the document, the artwork layers disappeared. The list of layers still showed them as existing, and supposedly visible, but neither the art nor its bounding boxes could be seen in the workspace, even when zoomed out. I have no clue why I am not able to resize the document without losing access to the layers.
  12. Screenshot file names provide description to go with the description below. TIFF file exported from Capture One has a very strong moire pattern in the couch fabric that the subjects are sitting on. The moire is not apparent when editing in Capture One, but it is evident in the TIFF file opened by 2 of 3 downstream programs. See the steps below. 2 of 4 (including Affinity Photo) if you include opening the tiff file in CO20. I am not sure where the issue is since it doesn't appear in XnViewClassic, nor in Capture One if you open the TIFF file in C20. Details and screenshots included. I develop a RAW file in Capture One 20 When satisfied I process it, export to tiff There is NO moire pattern in the Capture One application I open the tiff file in Affinity Photo and there is a brutal moire pattern in the couch I open the tiff file in Windows Photo Viewer and there is a brutal moire pattern in the couch I open the tiff file in XnViewClassic and there is no moire pattern in the couch I open the tiff file in Capture One 20 and there is no moire pattern in the couch Affinity Photo 1.8.5.703 Capture One Details: Build: 13.1.3.13 (78b6a17) System Details: OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041 OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation System Type x64-based PC Processor AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core Processor, 3600 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 12 Logical BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. 3.50, 2019-11-07 BaseBoard Product B450 TOMAHAWK MAX (MS-7C02) Platform Role Desktop Time Zone Pacific Daylight Time Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 32.0 GB Total Physical Memory 32.0 GB Available Physical Memory 22.4 GB Page File Space 4.75 GB [Display] Name NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Adapter RAM (1,048,576) bytes Driver NV_DISPSI.INF_AMD64_47A7EA3F1B25EDD7 <<Monitor>> Benq SW271 _8507812_-_2020-Oct-11_-_Dev_2020_10_19_10-53-24.tif _8507812_-_2020-Oct-11_-_Dev_2020_10_19_10-53-24.tif
  13. “Fill tool” is doing multiple fill actions by just scrolling/browsing the “Fill Type” carousel. It’s creating multiple history states by just scrolling the “Fill Type” option and sometimes causing a slow down and even a crash! I’ve attached a video demonstrating the bug, notice the “history studio”. Restarting the app didn’t help! Affinity Photo v1.8.6 iPadOS v14.0.1 (iPad Pro 11 inch 2nd gen) IMG_0903.MP4
  14. Hi All, Sorry, I'm not 100% sure how to properly word this, as I've not nailed down exactly what causes this to occur, but I've had a persistent albeit random issue trying to paint masks. Eventually, after doing a fair mount of painting/switching back and forth between black/white using the keyboard shortcut something happens and AP gets 'stuck'. Once the issue starts, white and black do the same thing and resetting the colors does not fix the issue. If they are stuck in 'hide mode' both colors hide and vice versa. I can save and restart, but the issue persists. However, sometimes, if I manually set the color to white/black the problem goes away, but that is not a guaranteed fix. I did just find that if I set both colors to nothing (red line though the circle) then manually change the slider for each color, one to white and one to black, it seemed to fix the issue. I'm fairly sure I've done that before and it did not fix the issue, but it's late and my memory is slipping. Hopefully someone else can replicate the issue, or tell me why it's happening, and how to never let it happen again System: Window 10 Pro: Version 2004, Build 19041.508 Affinity Photo: 1.8.5.703

  16. I just purchased and downloaded Affinity Designer last night. I attempted to open a .ai file with it, and was met with an error regarding permissions. I also tried to save an Affinity project (.afdesigner), which was met with a permissions error as well. The error reads: I am only able to read/save files in my newly created Affinity Designer iCloud storage, which is not the workflow I will be adopting. Before anyone flags this as a duplicate or writes this off, know that I have: Tried saving to/reading from multiple directories within my home directory, not limited to my Documents folder. (eg: ` ~/`, `~/Pictures`, `~/Downloads`) Used CleanMyMac3 to repair my disk permissions (multiple times) Manually reset permissions on my home folder recursively to all subdirectories and files (Right click > get info > Permissions & Sharing) Manually reset permissions on my home folder via terminal Ran First Aid via Disk Utility Restarted my computer (between each step) Cleared Affinity Designer's data by holding down Ctrl while booting Uninstalled and re-installed Affinity Designer I've read that this is related to Apple's sandboxing. Regardless, it seems insane that the program can't interface with my hard drive. My email client, writing apps, and video games downloaded from the app store can, without any issues ever. Why can't Affinity? Also, if this is an App Store issue that is reoccuring, why not make a standalone version... I'd prefer that anyway.... Double bummer because I was so thrilled to be replacing Illustrator with an allegedly superior project at the cost of only $50. Hoping someone can help me.
  17. When expanding the stroke of my drawing, one of the corners break. I've attached images. The first image is before the stroke is expanded, the second one is after. Why is this happening?
  18. Hello there, I was trying to enjoy using the Frankentoon Illustration brushes (on Windows Designer) but every time I switched back and forth between eraser and one of the more complex brushes I had to reselect and therefore reset brush size and changes I've made to the brush. After some testing I figured out the texture option is causing this problem because the textures won't get applied after switching back to the brush tool. However if I press "Invert" twice in the texture brush settings the brush works as intended again, but that just kills my workflow so is there any fix for this? I couldn't find anything about it after skimming the forum. Explanation of the pictures: 1.: stroke with brush; 2.: switch to eraser and erase a bit; 3.: switch back to brush and do another stroke After some more testing I found that this issue only occurs in brushes with more than one Texture applied, also non- Frankentoon brushes are affected too (tried with "Watercolours" defaults). I'm running the latest stable designer build on a AMD Ryzen 4700u, 16GB RAM Kind regards, RK
  19. I am having issues with paragraph styles. I expected them to work like inDesign or Word -- to click on text and apply the style, or update the style. Click on another button to erase formatting. When I place my insertion point at the beginning of the first line of a paragraph in body style, and enter delete, I expect the line to move up and close the gap from the paragraph above. But no, it acts like I hit return, and body style changes to no style. Similarly when I delete a line of bullied or numbered points I am unable to close the gap by hitting delete. I have to convert to Body, then convert again to the list. When I copy bullet points from one section and add them to another paragraph, then change the bullet points to Body, the space between paragraphs is not maintained, and it's a real hassle to get the 6pt space to work that is part of Body style. When I copy text from a Quarkxpress 2018 generated PDF, the text has huge leading, and does not conform to the style I select in body, or bulleted list. It has taken 8 hours to format a doc that should have taken 1 hour.
  20. Hello Affinity Team, have discovered a curiosity in the filter (Filters > Noise > Deinterlace > Even Rows & Odd Rows)! As you can see at the beginning of the (Video) example, the deinterlace filter is executed correctly up and down. But as soon as I rotate the image by 90 degrees, the effect of the filter is also rotated by 90 degrees and instead of horizontally, it is executed vertically! For me it looks like a bug!

  21. The "Window Zoom" option is not working in Affinity Publisher Beta 1.9.0.742 on macOS Big Sur 11.0 Beta (20A5384c) Used to be able to Alt + click green dot in the top left corner of application window to zoom the window to screen size (not Fullscreen), currently this action goes into Fullscreen; Menubar > Window > Zoom is working
  22. I used the pen tool on this program way back when (probably late 2017) and had no problem tracing my sketches into vector art. Now when I alt click a node (in 1.7) it turns the entire line straight instead of just removing one handle. Is this supposed to happen? Because right now the tool is virtually unusable.
  23. Hey there, I've just downloaded the new version of Affinity Publisher. So it would be version 1.7.1. I did not have access to beta prior. This is my first experience with the software. Since I opened it up, I've been having crash issues. Can barely get through adding images to one page and the spinning/not responding starts. Sometimes if I wait a while it works it's way out of it and sometimes not. I've been working for over an hour and have only gotten through page 3 of my document. I've been searching for solutions. Here's what I've tried so far. 1. Downloaded High-Logic and uninstalled a few hundred fonts that I wasn't using. 2. Checked the appdata folder for crash reports. Those folders are all empty 3. Held down the CTRL key when I started up Publisher and checked all boxes/ set it all back to defaults. The issue persists. As I've been typing this message, Publisher finally came out of it's spin, but I'm not going to get very far at this pace. Also, for some possibly further useful information, I had this problem sporadically with Designer and since that latest update, all those issues seem to have disappeared. I'm not sure if this is something going on with my PC or ? But I did see a forum thread somewhere that suggested this is not normal for Publisher and it should not be running this way. Any ideas or treasure trails you all can send me down to try and get this handled would be most appreciated. I was so excited to use this program and cut my time in half or more, but so far it's taking me more than twice as long to get anything done. Help?
  24. I've noticed a bug when merging layers down while they are part of a clipping mask. When you have more than one clipping layer on an object and you merge it down to the layer below it, it flattens the entire mask stack (including the parent layer) instead of just merging the two clipped layers. A bit tricky to articulate, but I've added an attachment here to try and visually explain what I mean.
  25. Guides, margins, and bleeds cannot be set and have display errors on the iPad. They cannot be set when you are using art boards (they jump back to 0), and when you have multiple art boards, the margin shows up in the wrong place. I noticed margin display error it when opening a document I’d created on my Mac - they are right on the Mac, but display wrong on the iPad. I’m using 11” iPad Pro, affinity designer 1.8.4 linking the original thread from the pre-p 1.8 beta archive as these have been issues since 1.7: plus here’s a video of the margin display error RPReplay_Final1598999987.mp4
