  1. Hi! I've recently got access to an iPad Pro and I've been dabbling with Affinity Designer. Great stuff, but I've ran into limitations that break my colouring workflow. First let me explain how I do it on the desktop: Draw a vector shape Apply a global colour to this shape Create a pixel layer inside the shape Apply a Colour Overlay effect to the pixel layer Attribute a global colour to the above effect Draw on this layer, the pixel brush colour doesn't matter since the Overlay effect always overrides it Repeat steps 3. to 6. for every colour I want to draw inside the shape Move on to the next shape and start from 2. again This way if I want to change any colour after the fact, all I have to do is edit the global colours and all parts of the illustration respond accordingly, even the pixel layers. The iPad version of Affinity Designer does not have global colours, nor it does not support attributing swatches to layer effects... this fundamentally breaks the method of controlling colours described above... I've already requested both features on the appropriate forum, but until they get implemented I'd need an alternative method. My question is, what alternative methods of recolouring the artwork should I use? What do you use when you want to recolour the artwork after you're done? Thanks in advance!
  2. I just noticed something peculiar. I'm doing some exporting for print to CYMK. I'm using a single color created by using the color overlay FX setting. I noticed, however, that when I was switching between RGB and CYMK, that the initial reading in moving from one color mode to another was different than the second reading after I closed the FX window and then opened it again. So, there is a conversion going on from RGB to CYMK or vice versa, that later "corrects" itself to the right value (or wrong?). So the problem is obvious. What if I was to trust the initial reading and perhaps relay that to a client, only to look again later to see that the number values for that color had changed? I've attached two screenshots of the issue. The actual color (to my eyes) appears the same. Yet the color values have shifted by closing the panel and opening it again. Is this typical, "expected" behavior, or did I find a bug? I'm using AD 1.55.
  3. Hello, I can't find a way to copy or save a color set in a color overlay layer FX to a swatch. If this is not possible yet, I think it's essential to a lot of UI designers out there. Thanks, Fernando
  4. With Affinity Designer v. 1.1.2, adding a Colour Overlay effect onto a pixel image lowers the resolution of that part of the image. The same pixel image without the Colour Overlay effect keeps the original resolution. See image showing the zoomed, exported PDF over the original Designer file. EDIT: This also occurs in the beta v 1.1.2.23834
