  1. I it would be great to have a parametric replicator over or within shape or along shape using any layer as source. we would be able to change size and color of the included element by random or progressive scale etc.... Exemple of use Present Paper... or massive banners. Let me know if you have any easy way to achieve this.
  2. An Option-drag of a selected object on Mac mostly causes the selected object to be duplicated after it gets released. I'd appreciate to use this GUI behave in Affinity. On document page view and in Layers panel, too.
  3. In this beginner tutorial I'll show you how to draw a parking disk with various tools and techniques in Affinity Designer 1.6.0. Although this tutorial is only available in German, you can hopefully follow the course of the video. The detailed table of contents in English inside the video description is hopefully a good guide for the single steps. Keep on drawin' Norbert
  4. I downloaded Photo via Mac Appstore. The default shortcut for duplicating a level was set to cmd+shift+s (the same as "safe under"). I tried to change it in the settings menu to cmd+J but nothing happend., even after restarting the programm. Tried saving the shortcuts and load them again, but the saved .affshortcuts-file could not be opened in affinity. So the shortcut is still the old one. Is there a bug or any idea how I could solve this. As it would be helpful, as in any tutorial I see where duplication is used, it is used with cmd+J.
  5. Hi I'm using the latest Affinity Designer version 1.6 from the AppStore. IIRC in the previous version when i duplicate an artboard/layer, it automatically duplicated on Export persona as a slice. This is very convenient, because i could easily modify as needed and rename it as new image name (as slice name to be exported). But in the current version when i duplicate an artboard i have to create a new slice to export. I'm working with UI assets with hundreds artboard. Each artboard could be unique but most them are a variation of previous design. It's very tedious to create a new slice, rename it as the layer/artboard each time new assets created from the duplication. Please bring back the previous behaviour, or at least an option to do so. Thanks
  6. Hi everyone, I've found a very annoying bug, where if you move a layer with the arrow keys on the keyboard and then try to ALT + Drag to duplicate, then the layer you dragged the duplicate from jumps back to the location it had before moving it with the arrows. See the attached image to better understand the issue.
  7. In Affinity Designer, how do you control what actions are repeated when you duplicate? Say for example I have a rectangle: - I resize that rectangle, - I then alt drag to duplicate it - I then want to duplicate it again, so I press cmd J The rectangle is resized and duplicated, but that's not what I wanted in this instance (I just wanted it duplicated). Aside: I would have assumed the answer was "it's only actions that happened since the alt drag", but that doesn't appear to be the case (unless it's a bug).
  8. How do I create a duplicate layer in iPad version of Affinity Photo?
  9. I have an AD document with around 150 artboards. The current file size is 163.3 MB Each artboard has a character vector illustration in a different pose, to make a new pose I often use a previous one as a starting point. If I duplicate and then attempt to move an artboard, AD crashes. The work around I have at the moment is to hide all the artboards (including the one I want to duplicate) and then duplicate and move the artboards I want one at a time. I understand that this is most likely due to the size of the document. However I am hoping this can be addressed as the ability to contain an entire project in a single AD document is one of the best features. I think it's possible as my system resources are not being taxed from what I can tell. I'm using a 13-inch Mid 2012 Macbook Pro El Capitan 8GB RAM 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB
  10. I have seen some posts about this from a couple of years ago, but cannot find an answer yet. Is it possible to duplicate just one segment of a curve for use on another layer? Sorry if this has been answered before and I have missed it. Pauline
  11. I am seeing a bug where an original shape changes position when I drag a duplicate from it. Here are the steps in the GIF… Draw a square. Control + Drag to create a duplicate (snapped to the right-hand side of the 1st square) Press Shift + Right Arrow to offset the 2nd square from the first. Control + Drag on the 2nd square to create a 3rd copy. The 2nd square immediately jumps back to its former position, snapped to the 1st square, as if the duplication is undoing the keypress. This is in both v1.5.3.69, and in the current beta v1.6.0.80.
  12. When duplicating and moving an object in Affinity Designer with option+drag, 3 history items are created: Transform Duplicate Transform Intuitively, I expect only one, and when "undoing" with command+z, the "Duplicate" action doesn't make a visible change, leading me to frequently end up with unintended duplicates all over the place. I think that merging these into a single history item would be a huge usability improvement. Check out the bug in a tiny screencast:
  13. Hello I am trying to duplicate one image into 4 even parts on my layer. I am not trying to split the image - rather have the image duplicated evenly into 4 or multiple parts Thank you kindly -Cunningham
  14. Hi am experiencing a weird issue, and I think I've seen this before, but for the life of me cannot remember how to work around it. Create SVG object, save to file. Create new Designer document (with Artboard, not sure if that matters). Import the SVG file created in step one and drop it onto the artboard. Duplicate the imported object. Double-click on the duplicate to edit it. It opens in a new tab. Make your edits. Switch back to the tab of the document and observe that both the original object as well as the duplicate have these edits applied to them How do I edit a duplicate object without it also editing the original? I made this recording of the problem: Thanks! ~Mike
  15. Searching the help did not produce any result. How do I draw for example a 12-leaf-daisy by only drawing one leaf and than duplicate/rotate it along a circular path? Is there any built in function like "actions" or "automatic repeat by angle and path"
  16. Hi well i upload the gif when you copy element with ALT+drag and then copy with CRTL+J the copy doesn´t take the last element distance is a weird function it takes.
  17. It took me some time to find it in the command menu. Still, there is no layer alpha lock. Have to use individual brush alpha feature.
  18. As the title describes, AD crashes when I duplicate the artboard. I saw that this happens on a Mac Version too, (see here: I uninstalled and re-installed AD but no change :(. The solution in the Mac-Forum was to delete the Symbols, which makes the file worthless. The Error Code: 0xC0000005 + Cannot start the Crash report!! Any ideas when this gets fixed?? I did spend some hours on this file whould be bad if I am loosing the work. Best regards NOD
  19. In iPad AP. I've got some pixel layers and adjustment layers. Is there a simple way to copy what I see to a new pixel layer? For example, so I can sharpen it? I can select all layers, duplicate, then merge selected. But the order of the duplicated layers is wrong.
  20. A feature I use very often in Photoshop and which I seem to be missing in Affinity Photo is the option to duplicate a layer from one open document to another. I use this feature on a day to day basis and I think it is very handy. Would be great to have that in Photo. I am a new user so I hope I didn't miss it if it exists already by any chance, but since I didn't find it in the help section I guess it isn't available. Thanks!
  21. wish file/thumbnail commands for efficiency... Duplicate Save to [iOS] Photos Export
  22. It would be helpful if i could hit the option key than click/drag the object without selecting it before. (At the moment i have to select the object on the canvas or in the layer-panel before) Its just one click less but a huge productivity step in my workflow.
  23. Hi guys, since updating to OS X Sierra I've been experiencing more and more crashes of Affinity Designer. I can now repeatedly crash the application by duplicating a certain layer in one of my files - let me know if you want to take a look at the file (preferredly non-public) or if I can provide any more details (is there a crash log?). I hope you can help me out, up until now I've been having nothing but a great experience with AD. Thanks, Ole.
  24. Hi, I am trying to do a power duplicate while rotating an ellipse. the amount of rotation needs to be as precise as possible. I and trying to create seven ellipses in a perfect circle. The attached file shows what I am trying to do. I need seven smaller ellipses equally spaced around a larger ellipse. I have created one and changed its rotation point to the center of the larger ellipse. It works fine if I manually rotate it but if I enter a precise rotation value (51.428571429) in the transform panel, the rotation point is ignored and it just rotates around itself. Thanks.
  25. Is there a quick way of duplicating layers in both Apps? At present I only seem to have found the following way: 1. Create a new layer 2. Go to the layer to duplicate - Copy it. 3. Go to the new layer - Paste in the contents of the copied layer. I find it useful to duplicate layers someimes - partly for safety reasons, but sometimes it enables more powerful editing which may not at first occur to one. Also, I'm not quite sure about some of the messages which appear about Pixel layers, and various optimisation messages re Layers - some which pop up from time to time.
