  1. I am using English as the main language on my iPad, but edit many Designer documents that contain german text. Now, some unwanted spellchecker does it's unwanted job and underlines most of the text with red dots in Designer. I have all spellchecking features under iOS settings turned off, and can't find any in Designer. Is there any other place where I can look? TLDR: I want all spellchecking turned off by default in Designer. And Photo, should it behave the same.
  2. I opened (and slightly edited, but that does not change the matter) the following SVG with AD: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/77/Unix_history-simple.svg However, exporting this to PDF fails with the (extremely helpful) message:
  3. In the latest publisher build .133 there is the option "Rotate anticlockwise in plane". This option is always greyed out, and in fact it is neither in the standard toolbar, not can I drag it into it... It seems like some Designer Beta code got mixed up, somehow.
  4. Dear developers, I found a bug in PDF editing with linear gradient. Please check these steps: Create a (CMYK) project in Affinity Photo Place a photo to background Place a Rectangle to your project Fill Rectangle with linear gradient with breakpoint, and will two gradients (see attachment) save and export to PDF open PDF and see gradient bug: put a mask what incorrect, not same as in project under any PDF version. Please fix this if possible, because if I have PDF only, no project, then need create again this gradient. Same results under Photo and Designer too. Project version: PDF edit version: My settings for gradient:
  5. It would be awesome for all UI designers that we could import Sketch App file format into Affinity Designer, would not it? Is there any chance to see this feature request landing in the foreseeable future, what do you think about it?
  6. When printing in Designer I find that even if I use the exact same settings for margins when printing, I can print a number of pages that are the same but if I come back to it at another time the margins will not be the same. This is extremely frustrating as I am trying to print booklets that must align. At first I thought it was my printer a Fuji Docuprint laser but it is the same for my new Brother laser printer. I am never sure where the image is going to come out on the paper!
  7. Is there a way to change the default font Arial to another font? I have a font our company uses all the time and it would be nice to open a new document and that font is already selected.
  8. Is there a mirroring feature in Designer for iPad?
  9. Putting focus into the assets panel search bar causes Designer to crash with a segfault. Dump is below. Can reproduce 100% of the time; restarting the application does, thankfully, restore the document so no hard feelings. Minor annoyance at worst.
  10. I tried to create some shortcuts for me. In the preferences tab I entered "Command + Alt + Y" for the "Join Curve" command – only to see that is already in use (little warning sign). After chosing a different shortcut I switched back to my document and found that my lines looked weird. I found out, that the "Command + Alt + Y" command changes the view to pixel mode. I guess this could be optimized.
  11. It would be extremely cool to be able to apply a gradient to a Gaussian blur on an object. Say you have a rectangle - the Gaussian blur could go from 0 at one end to 10px (or whatever) on the other. The object would start out solid and crisp at the one end, and gradually become more blurred towards the other. Would be nice for creating more realistic shadows, etc.
  12. Hi, when I deselect "Show Text in Points" in "Preferences > User interface" like in picture MU 1.png, and I click on a "Text Height" to change the font size, I get the list like in picture MU 2.png which is unusable. The list must be like in picture MU 3.png. Also, it would be great if you add a option in "Preferences" like in Freehand where we would be able to add a list of values separated by space for font sizes like in picture MU 4.png to override the predefined ones. The user should be able to enter as much values as needed.

    Pressure Sensitivity Accuracy.

    Hey guys. Newbie here! So in a nutshell, I'm an illustrator who primarily draws in Photoshop using a graphics tablet. I've recently purchased both Affinity Designer & Photo in hopes to totally ditch the Adobe subscription thing. Working in the way that I do, once downloaded I immediately selected the Affinity brush tool (not the vector brush) in both apps to see how it performs, but for some reason my pressure sensitivity is not accurate as it should be. I'm experiencing this in both applications, but not in Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint, or Sketchbook Pro. What's shown in the attached images is all strokes that were made quickly using a stable pressure. As you can see the strokes in Photoshop are all very uniform and natural looking, but for some reason in Affinity apps my stroke pressure does not register accurately which makes it incredibly difficult to draw 'neatly'. Sometimes when I press very hard the strokes are incredibly thin, but then suddenly bulk up which causes the strokes to look blobby - the scribbles I made were done with the same amount of pressure throughout but for some reason they seem to start very thin, even with a decent amount of pressure, and then suddenly thicken without me even pressing harder. I'm working on an iMac. I've look up a bunch of tutorials to make sure that I'm using the brushes properly, but they don't seem to play well. Is it just me, or is this a known issue? In the last attached image some of the strokes didn't even register at all like the cross bar of the "F" in "of".
  14. Hey all, I've been working on a deck of cards. Still trying to flesh out the main theme I want to go for but right now its sort of based on Tarot cards. Spades, Clubs, Hearts, and Diamonds are also Swords, Wands, Cups, and Pentagrams respectively like in a tarot deck. There's also 4 colors instead of 2. The idea is for this deck to also be the minor arcana of a tarot deck and later I can design a "major arcana expansion" deck that when combined with this deck would make it into a full tarot deck. The major arcana card in a tarot deck are the ones with names like "The Magician", "The Fool", "Death", "Justice", etc. The minor arcana are the 4 suits with the Ace, 2-10, and the court cards so that would be this deck. Maybe even will include a couple Major arcana as the Joker cards. Like "The Fool" and "Death" cards since most playing card decks have 2 jokers anyways. I'm also playing around with a duality idea of each of the court cards having slightly different sides. One being normal and the other side being a bit rough or unkempt. This would make them not perfectly symmetrical which would also be good for using them as Tarot cards since a card being upside down means something different than if it is turned right side up. Most number cards can show upside down except for the diamonds so I still need to figure out that for the 2-10 of diamonds cards. Anyways, I'm rambling on now. So what do you think? Any critiques or suggestions on the design? TL;DR - I'm designing a deck of cards. What do you think?
  15. My first ever attempt at a cartoon. Very basic!
  16. Howdy! As the title suggests, is it possible to have the textual manual that is available from within the app as a standalone file (PDF, HTML, EPUB, etc.)? It isn't very comfortable to switch back and forth between the manual and the app Thanks!
  17. 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):

    Designer crashing constantly

    Hi, I’m using a 2017 iPad Pro updated to the latest version and using an Apple Pencil. Whenever I am using designer it crashes on me after 5 to 10 mins and deleting my work. As you can imagine , this is a bit annoying. Any ideas?
  19. When in the slice persona, you can go through the process of selecting a folder. However, when you select a folder and export there is nothing in the folder and it does not export anywhere. Can export one at a time through the main menu.

    Planeterrarium

    One of my first vector works in Designer... and what I imagine when I misread "planetarium" (which is often). Your comments, feedback, and most of all, time, are much appreciated!
  21. Whilst using any line drawing tool (pencil, pen, or brush) the line appears pixelated whilst drawing. On lifting off the screen and finalising the line, it then gains smooth edges. Such an effect is not present in the tutorial video on using the pencil tool. This is makes drawing difficult, as it’s not possible to see where the line with begin or end. Is there a solution to this? If not, why does the video tutorial not suffer from this? 818DC9BF-60E4-4E74-9248-03D763A49B22.MOV
  22. When the Designer for iPad was released back in July, I read the post on Affinity Spotlight showing the works of artists who had used the beta version (https://affinityspotlight.com/article/affinity-designer-for-ipad-a-special-beta/), and I was immediately captivated by the work by Ilya Shapko titled "Mystic Beast": I am trying to produce these same effects in my own works, and not sure I nailed it yet. I did find and download the color palette for this work from Dribbble: (https://dribbble.com/shots/4821906-Mystic-Beast), but it appears that he used some effects that I am as yet unaware of. Does anyone here know what tricks (bright/contrast adjustment, etc.) he used to produce these stunningly eye-popping effects, which layers/elements he applied them to, and how he applied them? I checked his website a while back, and someone else had already asked him to produce a tutorial showing how he did this, but I don't think is he inclined to do so. I did do two projects from the Affinity Designer Workbook (which is itself an exquisite work of art and beauty) titled "The Panther" and "Reflected Skyline", both of which are colorful works with dark backgrounds. However, neither of them really discuss how to make the colors pop like Ilya is able to do. If anyone knows of other places where I can go to learn this, please do share.
  23. 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. :)

  25. Hello, I'm using latest stable version of AD, and while I minimize and work on my projects in Unity, AD take lots of CPU. See attached screenshot of the task manager. There are only couple of docs open in it, and app was minimized. Kindly look into this issue, as AD keeps my CPU at 70c temperature and fan on high speed until I close AD.
