  1. 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. :)
  2. Create a bit of text, of the Artistic Text Tool type, if you'll excuse the pun. With it still active, click on the font drop down. Beach ball... frozen, crash. Every single time. Latest MacBook Pro 2018, most up to date version of OSX 10.13.x (not Mojave), most recently fully updated Affinity Designer.
  3. Hallo, Recently I happen to use a lot constraints group function. I noticed that the strokes close to the bounding box is getting clipped. I googled and found the above thread. Exactly the same issue. The above thread was published two years ago, seems it should be fixed already. Could anyone kindly tell me how to overcome this issue (without having to restart from the very beginning...) Thank you.
  4. Due to many reasons (MS can't update their software without issues, threat of having to pay monthly license fee for Windows 10, and I just plain like linux, it's faster (even my internet download speed has improved 120% in speed tests) + much more) I have switched over my desktop to Linux 100% of the time. Every program that I "needed" from Windows runs fine in Wine or has a linux version to use. Every program accept Affinity photo and Designer. I have tried the installation .exe which kills over immediately with a repetitive error "Exception: ResourceSection::ResourceSection". Copying the files from a Windows installation also throws exceptions. Is there any hope of a linux version of Affinity sometime in the near future? If the answer is no (and I hope it isn't), do you have any way of a workaround to get both Photo and Designer working in Linux?
  5. Hi, When editing my vector drawing I would like to use the selection tool to select, transform and move the complete eye including outlines and shadows. The tool only allows to draw a rectangle at 1 of 5 attempts (at the faulty attempts always a whole grouping is moved). As soon as I manage to draw a rectangle, not a single layer is marked, although the settings are set in the global settings (see screenshot). The selector "edit all layers" in Layers Studio is also on. I also tried, after selecting the main group, to reach the other objects and groups by double-tapping, but even in this attempt it was not possible for me to combine all the blacks and gray lines of the eye in one selection. I attach my complex AD file to you. How can I quickly select the eye including shades? This problem costs me a lot of time as I have to search for layers in hundreds of layers as a workaround. Instead of making a change in a minute, it takes a lot of effort. The app is really very good, but the Move tool is currently a showstopper when using it. Best regards Sandra Unbenannt_4.afdesign
  6. Hey guys, There is actually only one thing missing for me in AD. But thats a big one, especially as it speed up my process immensly since it was introduced in AI. I'm talking about the notorious Shape builder tool. Of course you could make something else, that increases the speed of boolean operations. :-) (idk, shortcuts maybe?) Thank you in advance, Felix

    Fun Landscape

    Just a fun alien landscape I've been working on.
  8. Is there a way to open/import AI files that have objects out of bounds? Most of my Illustrator files have objects all over the place. When opening AI file in Designer what you see is only what's on the artboard and in my case it's most of the times nothing. So I have to open Illustrator, move objects and then open the file in Designer. Thank you.
  9. I have installed the latest version of the Affinity programs and now they are closing after it appears they have opened! I thought this should be posted in technical help but those subject areas are not open to me for some reason.
  10. I do a lot of design, photography and website work. One of the things I run into a lot are needing specific page sizes for various websites or designs. In photoshop I would be able to create a preset for a image size that I could go back too, and not have to remember the dimensions of. For instance, creating slides for a website slideshow. Some may be 800 x 600, and another website would have one that is 900 x 300. Is there a way that I can save those presets in the drop down list when creating a new project in Affinity Photo so I can have it labeled "Tom's Website Slideshow" so I know which preset it is? It would make it a lot faster than having to go back and lookup what the size parameters were for each website. Thank you
  11. I was wondering if it was possible to warp text in Designer. I attached an image with what I am trying to accomplish.
  12. Hello. I couldn't find a direct answer to this. Is there a way to sculpt a pencil line in the desktop version of Affinity designer. I love using this feature on the iPad and find the Pencil tool basically useless to me without it. Thanks,
  13. I apologize if this topic was already covered. I searched and found nothing quite like the problem I am having. Summary: Brushes, strokes, and effect are limited in how far up they can be scaled, limiting the overall size of the image created. I have a small bullet-like object created on the iPad. After opening the file on my desktop app I realized it is too small, so I scale it up. As you can see, from the attached image, the brush strokes and effects don't scale up even though I have the stroke's Scale with Object selected. I tried to resize the gaussian blur effect, but it is limited (won't blur enough). So, I am assuming then that effects such as Gaussian blur, noise, and simple things like stroke thickness are somewhat limited when you use them in large works. Is that assumption correct? And what about brush textures? Those are bitmaps right, so how far can those be upscaled before losing clarity? Will creating larger brush textures remedy the problem, and will AD have vector brushes in the future? For now, I hope that by exporting to the final size the quality will be high enough to be used. Thoughts or ideas? Thanks -Bill
  14. Hi, I've made an attempt to run Affinity Designer on Linux via Wine. I managed to run the program myself, but it is not possible to create or edit a document. The problem is probably with Direct3D support in Wine or in my GPU (maybe drivers). I will describe how to install and run the Designer via Wine. Maybe someone can successfully create or edit a document (eg with a different GPU). The operating system used is Ubuntu 18.04. What we need? Windows (yes, I know) - it can be a virtual machine. It will be used to extract the installation of the program because the standard installer does not work under the Wine. Wine with some patches - we must add MoveFileTransactedA/W stubs to kernel32. The building of Wine is required. Winetricks. 64-bit mscms.dll library. Affinity Designer installer and license. Offline installer of .NET Framework 4.0 and .NET Framework 4.7.2. Step 1 – build Wine We must build and install 64-bit and 32-bit Wine with patch. Building of Wine on Ubuntu is very well described on the WineHQ wiki: Building Biarch Wine On Ubuntu. Don't forget to apply the patch from attachment (fix.patch). During the building process I installed additional libraries like libvulkan-dev and libvkd3d. Step 2 – create MSI installer of Designer This step must be done on Windows. Open the command line (cmd.exe) and go to the directory where the Affinity Designer installer is located. Run the affinity-designer.exe /extract command (the file name may be different). Complete the required data and create an MSI installer. Transfer the created MSI file to your system with Wine. Step 3 – install Winetricks The Winetricks installation is described on the project page: Winetricks. I prefer a manual installation of latest Winetricks instead install outdated version from repo. Step 4 – create Wine prefix and install .Net framework Installation of .Net Framework with Winetricks doesn't work for me, that's why I do it manually. Initialize new Wine prefix: WINEPREFIX=~/Designer wineboot –init Change the system to Windows XP (for correct installation of .Net Framework 4.0) and remove the mono if installed: WINEPREFIX=~/Designer winetricks winxp WINEPREFIX=~/Designer winetricks remove_mono Download and install .NET Framework 4.0: wget 'http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/5/A/95A9616B-7A37-4AF6-BC36-D6EA96C8DAAE/dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe' WINEPREFIX=~/Designer wine ./dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe /q Change the system to Windows 7 and switch mscoree to native (this is very important): WINEPREFIX=~/Designer winetricks win7 WINEPREFIX=~/Designer winecfg Download and install .NET Framework 4.7.2: wget 'http://download.microsoft.com/download/D/D/3/DD35CC25-6E9C-484B-A746-C5BE0C923290/NDP47-KB3186497-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe' WINEPREFIX=~/Designer wine ./NDP47-KB3186497-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe /q Step 5 - run Affinity Designer Switch system to Windows 8.1 or 10. Designer will not start in Windows 7 mode due to Aero errors. WINEPREFIX=~/Designer winetricks win81 Install Affinity Designer (in my case MSI installer is Affinity.msi) WINEPREFIX=~/Designer wine msiexec /passive /i ./Affinity.msi Copy the missing mscms.dll library to Affinity Designer instalation directory. In my case it is ~/Designer/drive_c/Program Files/Affinity/Affinity Designer/. I have found the missing library on dlldownloader.com: mscms.dll. Start Affinity Designer: WINEPREFIX=~/Designer wine "C:\Program Files\Affinity\Affinity Designer\Designer.exe" The program should start and you will see the welcome screen. I can open preferences and change options, but creating a new document causes a crash. In Performance tab my GPU is displayed as Intel(R) HD Graphivs 4000 (I have Intel® UHD Graphics 620). Crash report: Attempting to create Direct3D device with adapter Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 c:\buildagent10\work\live\persona\windows\libraries\serif.directx\dxrenderer.cpp(676): error 0x80004001 (Unknown error 0x80004001) In the last step I tried to start the Designer using Vulkan-based D3D10/D3D11 implementation. After this (and install mesa-vulkan-drivers) in Performance tab my GPU is displayed correctly, but the program still crash while creating a new document. WINEPREFIX=~/Designer winetricks dxvk Crash report: Attempting to create Direct3D device with adapter Intel(R) UHD Graphics 620 (Kabylake GT2) c:\buildagent10\work\live\persona\windows\libraries\serif.directx\dxrenderer.cpp(676): error 0x80004001 (Unknown error 0x80004001) I know that Serif developers don't provide support for running Affinity programs via Wine. The post is for information purposes only. fix.patch
  15. This is probably a daft question and maybe I’ve changed something that is doing this.?? when I’m using the vector paint brush, whether I use my finger or pencil, the paint mark doesn’t start immediately and there is a line that seems to trail between the pen tip and the start of the paint line. It’s like the paint line is being dragged by a piece of string! I’ve attached an example.... 72E38397-A6C9-4AC0-BC07-16FE275ABDD0.MP4

    Logitech Speaker

    Sort of a newbie at Affinity Designer and have spent about two weeks (1 week trial then another week bought). I've used Illustrator a bit but probably more Affinity Designer in the last two weeks then all of my Illustrator use. I'm not an artist by any stretch and my real difficult is perspective. But just having fun. Anyway, they say to get better at a program, one should practice. I've copied some Youtube videos and designs as well as some design images from the web. So I thought I would try something different. I have two monitors on my desk and have to lay my little Logitech speakers down on their sides to use them effectively. And I thought, why not! So I present to you a Logitech speaker laying on it's side! Let me know what you think and thanks!
  17. Somos muchos los de habla hispana y en nosotros está generar contenido en nuestro idioma. Llevo poco más de un año usando Affinity Designer, puedo decir que ya no uso illustrator y muy de vez en cuando uso Photoshop. Me ha gustado esta herramienta y quiero compartir lo que he aprendido en este tiempo. Aquí el primer tutorial: En el video veremos el uso de la herramienta elipse para replicar el logo de radioHead; "Modified Bear", usaremos la pluma con polygon mode, repasaremos como pegar un objeto dentro de otro y explicaremos como funcionan los operadores. Link to YouTube Espero les guste. Saludo.
  18. Hello I want to make the text to write in a circle and not outside the circle, how can I do that? Here is the text outside the circle with using the text tool, I want it to be inside the circle (and as a result the text at the lower part to be read right and not be upside down), in illustrator I was dragging the symbol at the beginning of the path and pulled it inside the circle but I can't replicate this here.
  19. Hi, Just a quick question about Designer's brushes, especially the artistic ones like the 'texturing' or 'hand lettering' series. If I create something, and export the design to e.g. PDF, the result of the brushes is much more low-res that the original. It looks very pixelated at the edges. Isn't the brush a vector file, or does this not convert into PDF? I also imported stuff into Illustrator, but it's the same there. I cannot send something out for print like this. Any tips on this? thanks! rob

    Political cartoon

    The basic image I copied from a New Yorker cover but then I made it my own. Just a learning process.
  21. Hello, recently got Designer on Ipad and I encounter different bugs ever since. The biggest one is the export problems: I want to export my drawing without one of the layers and "Fragment export" (one of the three modes at the top) allows exactly that and much more. After I press little Share button next to my fragment Designer asking me to select export folder. IF I select ANY folder on OneDrive or Google Drive NOTHING will be exported no matter what. But if I select any folder on Ipad itself (like any app folder) it works, BUT even like this 1x size export is actually 0.5x size export for no reason. For example, I created 256px file, If I press export from drop-down menu it export in 256px, but from fragment export scale 1x will export 128px. And to be clear default export from the drop-down menu works on OneDrive/Google Drive, but fragment export does not. To be more clear I recorded a video to show this (sorry about my English):
  22. Hi designer will not close saying their is 1 file currently being opened however their is not waited over 6hrs and nothing have tried uninstalling and repair but still same problem any help would be greatful
  23. When exporting slices, adding additional scaled exports via the + causes all the entries to randomly disappear. Here's a clip of it happening. Bonus Cursor Resize Bug included for free. Affinity Designer 1.6.5 | 13" MBP | High Sierra 10.13.6 | Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB
  24. In both AP and AD, I have created a reference layer (1), placed a photo on it, and lock that layer. Another layer (2) was created and is being used to hold elements traced from the locked layer. The problem, I cannot box-select the elements on the second layer if the box begins over the photo on the locked layer. Even though layer one is locked it get selected. I can also just click on the background image on that locked layer and select it, of course, I can't do anything with it once selected...because it is locked. The question: Is there a setting I am missing that prevents the object on the locked layer (or locked object) from being selected? Seems to me that if something is truly locked I should not be able to select it. Thank -Bill
  25. 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
