  1. Is Publisher going up against newish tools like Sketch and Adobe XD? In many ways those tools are layout software so it seems like similar to what Publisher would do. I have spent far less time with Publisher then I have with the other Affinity tools so it's hard for me to know how much it competes with prototyping. What I have seen so far it looks like it is more of a competitor to ID and Quark.
  2. Hello everyone, From today i believe i have to start sharing few of our design works (actually i'm working alone but i do build a team from time to time depending on project size ) Most of our client/requesters are Church based and we really enjoy doing stuffs for them but what you will se here is more about Smarty Studio standing with other studio/teams together into what is to become Congolese Design Style. Well each country have it's own style of design but Congo doesn't have a proper thus most of Congolese designers simply clone/copy styles from everywhere. This is a beginning, please your inputs on each design palet/kit will be of great help and will help us improving better. Blessings !
  3. It would be very useful to have functions to select the same: Color fill stroke (color / width) Appearance To quickly select all your outlines, or background element in 1 color. Speed is everything. :)
  4. Hey guys......so I was working on my new course...and got the the lesson on making brushes.....sooooo I had to amek some brushes.

  5. is there a way to trace images to vectors paths?
  6. Hi, This is redrawing of detail from Mark's Ryden painting "Snowhite" (full painting is lil bit disturbing and might be assignet to 18+ category, if anyone want to search it on the web). Detail: I redrawed a head of bunny without surrounding stuff. Just for practice and increase skills. I spend on this many hours and im still not fully satisfied (fur was a problem for me). All with vectors and some FX'es (blurr).
  7. I am looking for a way to "link" an object(s) rather than copying and pasting, or "placing" in such a way that a change to the original object is reflected wherever it has been used. For example, see the screenshot (I am using artboards here, but just for this example). I would like to a change to the objects in the "logo" artboard to be reflected in the "letterhead" and "envelope" artboards, for example changing the text from "A Logo" to "My Logo". Is there some approach that would allow this? Doesn't have to be between artboards... logo could be a separate document, etc. Thanks... I love using Affinity Designer, and use it for all my vector based work now.
  8. Hi, I have a problem with Affinity Designer on iPad. Hide UI is constantly turned off when my palm touches the screen edge. On the video attached, I am touching right part of the screen with the edge of the palm. The same behaviour can be reproduced with other side of the screen. Also, when I drag-in any of iOS system panels (bottom or the top), fullscreen mode is turned off as well. All these issues are reproduced only when "Automatically hide UI" is turned on. IMG_5263.MOV
  9. Using Designer v1.6.1 under macOS 10.13.6, I have a 300ppi (dpi) document with 2 artboards - it includes 0.125" bleed. Each artboard is the same size -- 5.25" x 8.25". When exporting individual pages as PDF with printer's marks, crops, registration, bars and page info, the resultiing PDF size of the cropped area works fine and is, as expected at 5.25" x 8.25". However when exporting the whole document (both pages), with the same settings preset, the crop size somehow is changing to 5.5" x 8.5". This doesn't seem like the correct behaviour and is a different result than exporting the individual pages. Am I doing something wrong here? How can I get the expected results of a crop of 5.25" x 8.25" when exporting all the pages (whole document)? fwiw, my issue also occurs with the Designer Beta 1.7.0.3. 18-1639OHA-PDF-Export-issue-wholedocument.pdf 18-1639OHA-PDF-Export-issue-nobleed.pdf 18-1639OHA-PDF-Export-issue-withbleed.pdf 18-1639OHA-PDF-Export-issue.afdesign

    Layer naming/renaming failure

    Hi, I have a terribly frustrating bug with renaming layers. I've seen this posted before, and the bug was said to be fixed in an update (which has already come). When typing a new name for layers, the text field constantly de-focuses itself – this happens so often, and so regularly, that naming layers is essentially a completely lost function for me. Layer naming is a critical function that I can not afford to lose. It can take me sometimes longer than an entire minute to successfully rename a single layer, artboard or group. I am using a MacBook pro with external monitor. Happens with a wired mouse, wireless magic mouse, external keyboard and MacBook Pro keyboard -- there is no known issues with any input or display device. This bug also happens with the latest version of AD from the Mac App Store, as well as with the Beta. The bug occurs on layers of all types, as well as groups and artboards. This bug, for me, is only observed in the Layers palette -- all other palettes are fine with input. In the attached video, you can see me renaming layers. In this video, the first layer is renamed correct. Then I add another layer and try to rename that one, to show how the chaos unfolds... While editing the name of this new layer, I never once press return to commit the name at any point in the video. The layer constantly loses focus, commits the incomplete name, and my typing fingers then punch random hotkeys... This is incredibly frustrating for work. I am a super loud proponent of AD, I love all that if offers... but this bug alone is enough to ruin my workflow and make designing in AD an absolute headache. Previous posts for reference: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/18336-new-layer-naming/-- Very last comment, it goes unaddressed. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/15832-bug-141-renaming-layers-broken/-- Caught in a beta, apparently logged but never addressed. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/24660-rename-layer-with-obstacles/-- Similar problem, and marked as fixed. I am pulling my hair out over this one. Thanks for all your hard work, -WV affinity-rename-layers.mov

  12. Hi all This is my first post here in the Affinity forums . I got familier with Affinity designer when it was in beta a few years back . For the past year I used Gravit as my main vactor app (I'm an amateur , using it for fun only). Since I'm considering the switch I would like to share my thoughs and get some feedback : Affinity designer is one time fee while Gravit Pro is annually based subscription . I prefer one time fee but Gravit is giving 60$ off for Gravit users , which makes it cheaper from Affinity designer (Though I'm not sure if it's only for the first year or every year) . I'm already familiar with Gravit and feel "Right at home" when I use it . I still don't feel it with Affinity . Should I be worried ? Unlike Gravit , I see a lot information and tutorials on Affinity , both here and on UDEMY and it makes me think Affinity is more welcomed by the design insudtry . Am I right ? Assuming I'm willing to purchase Affinity designer , will I get every minor/major updates in the future for free ? One of the main advantages on Gravit is the fact they have support for browser . Will you add such support in the future ? Thank you !
  13. Hi, I’m using AD on my iPad for a while now and really liking it! But in this particular case, I’m seem to be lost: I want subtract the two circlular shapes from the concentric circles, but I can’t get it to work like I want to. End result would have to a picture of the concentric circles with transparent space where the two circles were before. Anyone with the golden idea? Thanks in advance! Subtract?.afdesign
  14. right, just bought this app, and I am more than a little confused about the behaviour of the node tool. it seems pretty well-established that it is laggy and imprecise (something that would have been nice to know before purchasing), but there seems to be other things that are broken: node tool has erratic behavior when selecting a node to drag -- sometimes it drags it, sometimes it grabs the control handles magnifying glass randomly appears and persists (what is this even supposed to do? there's no option or even documentation for it, and it just obstructs lines) magnifying glass appears on the same touch as when touching with one finger to use the modifier awful screen tearing when zoomed in precision work is impossible. can someone please help me understand the behaviours of the node tool here, and are there fixes for any of these issues? (the lag and impreciseness are also present when manipulating any other nodes outside of the node tool -- resizing a shape, for example.) ipad pro 10.5 + apple pencil / ios 12.1.1 / designer 1.6.4.45 A7DB13E7-245B-4AAF-A96B-6451C11AD05D.MP4 E7674E8A-3A01-4ACD-A4F1-16162679F4D6.MP4
  15. Designer on my 2019 ipad pro keeps freezing/crashing. It's also not saving several steps before crashing so I practically have to start over again.

    Stickers with Peel Effect

    Hey guys, just a quick and clean Designer file: a round sticker mock-up for your … mock-upping needs. You can change almost everything and layers are named accordingly to their purpose: rotation, colour, outline. Also let me know if you need a rectangular version, so I’ll add one with the same style. Edit: Rectangular sticker added. Sticker.afdesign Cheers and have fun! MrDoodlezz
  19. Hello! I am having a curious problem with typefaces in both Designer and publisher, which is that a particular font (Akzidenz Grotesk BQ regular) never shows. It shows alright in Photoshop, MS word, and also correctly installed in the font directory (windows 10). In fact, when I open the character tab, I have a "bold", and two "medium" fonts (the two medium are the same) and no "regular". The same panel in photoshop shows "bold", "medium" and "regular". (postscript OTF) Is it a known bug or something I have missed? The typeface/fonts comes from Berthold website (bought there) so not likely to be corrupted. I have attached a couple of screenshots Thanks a bunch...

    Desert

    Hello, below the desert in the vector edition
  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. Hi, I've just downloaded the Affinity Designer trial, and am quite impressed. However, I am a design student and my school computers have adobe programs. As far as I can tell, I can't find any way of exporting Designer files as Ai files? I can see the option to export as psd, and I've tried to open Ai files using Designer with no problems - but I wanted to check whether there was a way of exporting to Ai that I had missed. Thanks
  23. 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.
  24. As the title says, there is a significant lag or pause when I try to move points of a shape with my Apple Pencil. I guess the lag is also there when dragging with my finger, but it’s less visible. The points only move when I drag them for more than around 5mm on the screen. I am using the new IPad Pro 11“ and Affinity Designer Version 1.6.4.45. Here is a screen recording. In my opinion this makes it impossible to work precisely... 61F4593B-2225-4358-8A11-F27272B939E6.MOV
  25. I see new versions are on their way. I am excited, but then I think about the one tool I want and desire and become sad knowing it won't be present.... most likely. Please gods of Affinity.... Give me a DESTRUCTIVE crop (or at the least an option when cropping)! Rasterizing is NOT an option. Sometimes, I just want to get rid of stuff not mask and hide it. So, please please please please please please please please please give us the ability to destructive crop. Thank you.
