  1. Hi I’m working on an illustration and trying to turn all the lines into shapes so I can colour them, I’m doing as I usually would and expanding the stroke > then in geometry tools click add but when I do that the add loading screen appears and then gets stuck on that screen, it works fine on some expanded shapes when adding them others it doesn’t. I’m selecting only a small part of my illustration to do this too it’s not the whole illustration which would likely take time as it’s more complex, but surely it should be able to work on complex shapes too shouldn’t it? Look forward to your reply. FCD01CA7-3E54-46AD-BCD7-C4A0AD67B6F7.MOV

    Expand stroke bug

    Hey there Affinity team! A new user here and I have been enjoying Affinity Designer experience so far, but I found a majour bug when expanding a stroke of a circle object. Here is a screen-cap of the problem. Screen_Recording_2018-12-28_at_22_34_38.mov
  3. I'm trying to make some organic shapes with custom/random stroke dashes, upon expansion I get this messy fills: Before: After Stroke dash settings: 0 2 44 2
  4. Hi there, I just wanted to let the team know that the Expand Stroke option needs some work—especially with curves. I've had multiple instances where A.D. gets this wrong and ends up giving me a shape that is not exact, and in some cases it looks really terrible. Below is one example—although not the most extreme case. This may look like nit-picking, but when Illustrator can get it spot on and when detail matters, this is an issue that will stop me from using the program. Thanks for your time, and have a nice day. P.S. Try Expanding the stroke of a circle. It's bad. I know there is a donut tool, but it's still an issue.

    Expand stroke incorrect

    Hi I presume that after last update something went really wrong with expanding stroke function. It is completely broken. I have a lot of work to do, but now I just cant do anything. Any help?

    Expand stroke crooked

    Hi, after months and months of using affinity, somehow suddenly the expand stroke didn't work right. Look at this screenshots: (I coloured stroke to red with purpose, to see how the stroke crooked after expand) Thanks for reply

    Inaccurate expand stroke

    Draw a circle with border, expand stroke and you get an oval! Expand stroke is a very useful tool, but is not accurate, at least with circles as you can see in the screen shot. Please fix this bug.
  8. Hello! Expand stroke isn't working properly work. Is this the norm for Affinity Designer or is it a bug? The problem is only with very small objects less than 10x10 px. Affinity Designer 1.6.0 macOS Sierra 10.12.6
  9. Hey everyone, I've been trying to do more of my regular workflow in Designer and get away from Illustrator as much as possible - can someone point me to a tutorial or explain to me how this task is accomplished in Designer? In Illustrator, I trace over my original sketch layer with strokes that purposefully overlap each other. When completed, I select them all together and expand them to fills and then use the "live paint"option to convert them to separate pieces that begin and end where they overlap - so then I can deselect and use the white arrow tool to click on each overlapping piece I don't want and delete. I included a picture from Illustrator showing the overlapping technique and the individualized pieces. Im not sure what to call this technique, so its been hard to look up - any help is appreciated! thank you! Mat
  10. Hey guys, I've tried to search this topic, but couldn't quite find it. Although I think it should exist somewhere: Sometimes (not always) when expanding a stroke, the vector lines change and straight lines bend. Has anyone else had this happen? I've attached an example with before and after. Pay attention to the upper line after expanding the stroke. It always requires additional touch up to straighten the lines and can get quite annyoing if there are multiple cases of this happening ;) macOS 10.11.6 (El Capitan) Affinity Designer 1.5.5 Cheers!
  11. I'm making some icons at small sizes (~ 24x24px) and noticed that expanding the stroke of a circle results in odd, wobbly paths. Looks lime some kind of rounding issue, since the larger the circle the less noticeable the issue gets.
  12. In Illustrator you can offset an object to expand and contract it. I want to be able to expand some type that has been converted to cures so that it can be a mask. The only way I figured I could do this is to set a stroke to the expanse I want and then to expand the stroke. The problem is the stroke is still acting as if its part of the type instead of a separate object and there is no way I can figure out how to combined the type and the stroke to make a mask object.
  13. Is there a quick shortcut key/combination I can push to expand/collapse all layers?
  14. Hello all, So I have to send the print file to the printing house and need an art brush stroke I created to be only 1 color. The brush preset has all sorts of tints and the printing house returned it and told me they need it 1 color only. I only need it for it's rough edges. I tried expanding the stroke so that I can fill it with only one color but that's not possible in AD. I made the stroke normal and expanded it but I cannot apply a roughen edges effect to it now because it does not exist. Please Affinity... Anyone have a workaround to my problem? ! Attached is a zoom on the brush.
  15. Hi, I ran into what I think is a bug when expanding a stroke on a shape with sharp edges only: The shape has started off as a twelve-sided polygon which I remodelled. I double checked all points; they are sharp. There are no double points, and also the stroke cap and join settings are straight. While trying to make this work I could reproduce this issue many times. Although, not a bug, a second issue occurs while expanding bezier curves. A simple circle becomes incredibly complex after expansion: I'm using AD to create cut files for a Zünd CNC machine. I can see the machine haveing trouble with the extreme amount of points on the curved parts. Unfortunately, it slows down the whole cutting process. section-test-bug.afdesign
  16. While following the instructions of page 316 of the Affinity Designer Workbook I realised that expanding curved strokes will create shapes with unreasonably high number of anchor points.

    Expand Stroke

    Hello, first of all Thanks for your amazing product, i just bought it. Before i use beta version. I observe one little bug, when I trying to do "Expand Stroke" result which i see are not good. In attachment you can see results. Thank you.
  18. Hej, I am posting this here because I'd consider this or "something about this" as a bug or unexpected behaviour: When I export a path to SVG and the stroke alignment is not centered, the stroke will be expanded to a fully outlined shape in the SVG. I had an non-closed outline style path and the stroke alignment was set to "inside", yet, it was rendered as centered on the artboard. There might be something featuresque about this - but I think one would expect that paths without fill will also export to (not expanded) stroke paths without fill. ... however the stroke alignment is set - especially when it will render as centered on open paths anyway. What do you think? PS: Also maybe a feature request: It would be nice to have an option to exclude the xml definition and the doctype for SVG exports. Would be handy for embedding SVGs directly in HTML. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?><!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd"> best wishes Steffen
  19. Hi, I tried working on a stroke and played with it to get a brushed feel. But when i expanded the stroke, It has toooo many points which is impossible to edit later. ( refer attached) As the points are too many, this also makes the application heavy and closes the app. It will be good if the points on a curve are optimised. Let me know if i am doing anything wrong?
  20. What about a quick expand button for stroked objects? I do this a lot and quick button to perform an expand stroke and union of parts would be great.
  21. Hi, First of all I'd like to thank you for the really great software. I am currently using Affinity Designer for UI projects / icons and it improved my skills undoubtly. I could write an essay about how you made my designer life better (and I am sure that many others said it before) so I will go straight to the point: 1. Expand stroke I am making some vector graphic and I am using pressure panel to make the stroke look more handwritten and after that I was using expand stroke command and it goes pretty well with simple curves, but with more complex ones it gives me wrongly converted objects is there any solution for this? Maybe, am I doing something wrong? 2. Flatten transparency Are there some tools for print preparation as flatten transparency tool which would make me sure that in print everything would look good? Every advice would be helpful :)
  22. I've found this bug for 3 months and solving is just manual fix the path after expanding or export by Illustrator then copy to AD in case of complex shape. Please try my attached file, it is just a simple rounded rectangle. Any straight lines with the rounded corner may be happened too. Cheers. :) Expand_Stroke.afdesign

    Expand stroke, gone wrong.

    So I've used a variable width stroke to simulate a strand of hair. When I outline it, it all turns to custard. Before expand: After expand: Wonkers. Mac - El Capitan, MacBook Pro, Affinity Designer 1.4.1 :)
  24. I downloaded the South African flag from Wikipedia as an SVG. Then I imported it into AD. One of the parts is a triangle with a large stroke of yellow on it and when I expand it, AD resets the stroke to nothing and expands a thin line, as opposed to the actual stroke width of 243.3pt. When I draw a new object it seems to work, but often we use imported artwork, especially since most stock websites produce AI files (no getting around Creative Cloud then). Watch Video
