  1. Any Distortion, Warp, or Perspective distort features soon? This year? Any date release? I need to know if I need to change apps. What is everyone else doing to get around not having Distortion or Perspective distorts in Affinity Designer? Any tips?
  2. Hi all, I'm considering buying Designer but one thing that I can't find is if there is a way to fill an object using vector or patterns. I only find gradients and bitmap. I know we can duplicate an object to create hand made pattern but I can't then edit the repetitions like if is a bitmap fill. Cheers, Juan
  3. Hello the most recent build is not printing Files correctly. The effects of layers seem to not stay clipped when printed. They are perfect on screen, but not while printing. the first file is the original file and how it should look, the other three are photos of how the the drop shadow is leaking out side the clipped area. For now i am printing from a JPG to fix it, but i should be able to print from the DESIGNER file without having this happen. Gary
  4. I was wondering if it was possible to warp text in Designer. I attached an image with what I am trying to accomplish.
  5. In addition to the existing bugs in the contour tool and expand stroke, visual artefacts also appear! S_curve_example_BUG_contour_tool.afdesign S_curve_example_BUG_expand_stroke.afdesign S_curve_example.afdesign S_curve_example_BUG_contour_tool.mp4 S_curve_example_BUG_expand_stroke.mp4
  6. In Affinity Designer, how do you convert a vector brush stroke to a curve. Yes, the stroke itself is a curve, but with the brush applied it has texture (width, scratches, drop-outs, etc.) in the stroke. I'd like to take the "rendered" vector stroke and convert it to an outline curve (kind of like converting a text letter to a curve). How is this done?
  7. 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.
  8. Can we get one? Like this from CorelDRAW... Thanks!
  9. I love Affinity Designer, but I cannot understand why the issues with the boolean operations persist years after they have been flagged repeatedly in the forums. Trying to expand simple strokes and divide and add together parts of these simple shapes results in a ton of errors. When I had discussed this in prior posts to the forum, it was alluded to that "dirty geometry" was the issue - because I had used the pen tool like a brush, building up multiple strokes at times to get the kind of thick to thin lines I wanted. In this case here, I'm using single pen strokes. I really want to replace Illustrator with Designer - but I cannot understand why such a major component of Designer is still not anywhere closer to being fixed years after the problems began. I literally have to take the design out of Designer and into Illustrator or VectorStyler to expand it and merge cleanly the different parts Anchor.afdesign
  10. Using PSD in Designer 1.9.0 for windows, creates white lines in export files' I got a mockup psd file and opened it in AD. When I export the file, it has white lines in the embedded image. I got the mockups from here:https://smashmockup.com/gold-frame-mockup-psd/ I don't have Affinity Photo. I have attached screenshots. I am a total noob at this, so it's something obvious, I would really love guidance.
  11. The official MAS downloaded Designer v1.9.1 update tells BETA (?) ... BTW, same for the Photo pendant!
  12. maybe I'm missing it, but is there an option to open a JPEG, or bitmap image and trace,or convert it to a vector file for further editing? If not there should be one, it would be a great option. even if it had only a few modes like black and white, and 5 color it would make me convince me to convert from adobe illustrator
  13. Not exactly sure how to call this "feature" but I think in Illustrator it was called "Isolation Mode". What I want to be able to do is, for example, enter a group and drag a selection over a few elements without interfering with background elements. Without, obviously, having to lock them previously. Is there something to accomplish this? It seems like a really basic feature and it's essential to my workflow. How do you guys deal with this type of situations?
  14. Hello, I have a situation where I have ~650 layers, all well named that I need to search through quickly to hide/show for different permutations of an image. Is there a way I can either sort the layers alphabetically to find them more easily or search for them. Thanks.
  15. Hello, I wanted to reiterate an issue with the node tool in the vector persona that I've noticed in Affinity Designer in versions 1.8.4 - 1.9.0 on a Windows 10 PC. This issue was reported before for v1.8.4 in this forum post: Node Tool - double click issues - Pre 1.9 Designer Bugs found on Windows - Affinity | Forum (serif.com), but I just wanted to make a note to say that it still exists in later versions as well. The issue occurs in every document when trying to use the node tool to select nodes. A node can be selected as normal, but when you try to drag or adjust the node, the click doesn't register, thus deselecting the node. Every so often, dragging does actually work, but this seems to be random. The issue gets worse the closer you zoom in, and sometimes makes the entire program lag a bit as well. This should be reproduceable on every version after 1.8.3 in both new and old documents. There isn't really anything that can be captured in a screenshot for this bug. Before this bug appeared you could simply select a node and move/adjust it all in one movement. I have tested every version of Designer, but I have to keep reinstalling version 1.8.3 because it is the most recent release that does not have this bug. This causes a different problem because I can't open documents from coworkers who are using the newer versions. Thanks for reading, - Mitch System Information: Bug occurs on Affinity Designer 1.8.4, 1.8.5, and 1.9.0 Most recent version without bug: Affinity Designer version 1.8.3.641 Windows 10 Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 1700x GPU: AMD Radeon Vega FE 16GB RAM
  16. I don't seem to be able to get Photo or Designer to start after switching to 1.9. I tried to look at the prob -- it seems they crash right after scanning the fonts, but unable to determine why. I'll attach a procmon trace in xml format. The 257MB trace shrank to 6.7M in 7z format. Running Win7SP1x64 on an 8-core (Hyper threading disabled), 96G RAM, w/6-10GB GPU mem on a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. I haven't used either product extensively since the long time to startup made me lose interest in doing anything. I keep hoping that someone will take the font performance issue seriously, such that it is eliminated, since the serif apps are the only ones with such a problem on every startup, even though I almost never used the font features in photoshop (not a big part of my workflow). They have gotten better, but I note that many of the fonts are read twice and for some reason the font-reading process does a disk-status call with each font lookup, so it doesn't look like much time has been spent trying to make it efficient or fast, not to mention doing the whole font read-in once and caching it -- then updating the cache only when new fonts have been added. Also besides reading the font resources in a background thread, could also get some serious improvement by splitting up the job across multiple cores and merging the results via shared memory, though even a merge-sort on 'N' result files (N maybe # of cores) would likely give a strong speedup. Of course being the masochist that I am, I'll startup both photo+designer at same time because I don't know them very well and not sure which has which features that I might want to try. But now, doesn't want to startup at all. Any ideas? Especially since both crash now? :-( photo-procmon.7z Designer-CrashReports.7z photo_CrashReports.7z
  17. I'm working on web design a lot and I love Affinity Designer. This week I had to create an icon (favicon to be precise), which I obviously designed in Designer. So far so good, but there seem to be no way of exporting an image as *.ico. Are there any plans for adding support for ico files?
  18. Hello there, So I'm a website designer, and I would like to design in Affinity Designer more. I found a problem though that is preventing me from doing that full-time...When I export my files to PSD (for handing over to developers) and open them in Photoshop, the text layers appear as image/raster layers and aren't editable. Please help. This is a very important issue for me to resolve. I cannot proceed with using Affinity Designer if our dev team can't edit the texts. Other than this, I am really loving this software. Please help. Thanks, Eli
  19. Has anyone else notice odd behavior since the 1.9 update? I'm on Windows 10 Pro with a highly capable laptop and 3 monitors. 1.8 was rock solid and fast... A few things I've noticed: 1. file load times (File|Open) seem significantly longer than previous versions. 2. linked documents cause host programs to hang/crash. for example, a muti-artboard designer file when placed in publisher causes crashes when the designer file is updated. In some cases the update time is quite long (3 minutes at worst for me; others it simply hangs). 3. designer with multiple artboards instantly crashes when attempting to print.
  20. Hi, I am not checking the pen tool at all? I come from Illustrator, of course, where I can easily add or delete points with the pen tool. It's not that easy in the designer? Somehow, I think with Command + Pen Tool, I managed to add a point to an existing path. But how can I DELETE a single point from a path, have all the key combinations through, even in the tutorials I haven't found anything about it? Thanks, and sorry for this simple basic question --------------------------------- Ich checke gerade das Pen Tool überhaupt nicht ? Ich komme natürlich vom Illustrator, dort kann ich mit dem Pen Tool auch ganz leicht Punkte hinzufügen oder wieder löschen. Im Designer geht das irgendwie nicht ganz so einfach ? Irgendwie, ich glaube mit Command + Pen Tool, habe ich es geschafft einen Punkt zu einem bestehenden Pfad hinzuzufügen. Aber wie kann ich einen einzelnen Punkt aus einem Pfad löschen, habe alle Tastenkombinationen durch, auch in den Tutorials habe ich dazu nichts gefunden ?
  21. I was wondering if a dimension tool is in the works for Designer. Something that designers/architects can use to label and indicate dimensions on drawings. For example, features such as CADTools ( a plug-in for illustrator), or the dimension tools in iDraw. I think such a tool will be a fantastic addition because I'm an architect and I think all designers of physical objects will probably appreciate it. But overall, I was wondering if such a tool was part of the planned future features roadmap. Best, Jawad Altabtabai
  22. Greetings! I'm here to propose the addition of an Affinity version of the Illustrator option called "Knockout Group" that prevents elements in a group from showing through each other, so that, even if two circles are transparent, if I put one at the top of the other, the one at the top will be at the top hiding what's beneath, like this: Even though both circles are transparent, the green is still at the top and doesn't show the purple line that should be beneath. With that option I can achieve this! The clock at the top is not showing what's beneath, instead, it's showing the background (which is transparent but this image shows a white color). Thanks! If there's an option like this already, please tell me! I've been searching this with no luck, so I guessed that it's not actually on Affinity Designer!
  23. On iPad Pro, Affinity Designer After pasting text from a web page on a Frame Text area, the background color (white) came with other formatting (font, size etc). It displayed as a white strip in each line of text (like highlight on a Word processor). See attached image. I didn't find where to change background color on text. The option is not available on iOS (as it is in Mac OS, see below). As a workaround, I've pasted the text in Google Keep and copied from there. On Mac OS, Affinity Designer Text pastes without the background and the text Character pallete shows color options for both foreground and background color. See image
