  1. After doing the new update, I can't seem to open a new document with out the program freezing and crashing. Whether hitting 'new doc' on the opening screen or through File/New Doc it just stops working and I can't click on anything else. No error code or anything either. I have to force it to close. Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it? Thanks
  2. When I try to use the freehand selection tool under the polygonal setting it will not select the area I choose. Below I have attached photos of before and after I connect the tool. I work to make sure the selection is not outside the line I made, after I connect it will go outside The original selection. Is this something that can be fixed…?
  3. Hello Team i've been working on a project to check the new AFPub .270 but noticed: The software crash every time I tried to reorder the pages using the drag and drop method. i Tried to re-order one page at a time made the software crash. i Tried to re-order couple of pages (4 in this case) made the software crash Note: This Manual Re-ordering of pages was 100% working in previous version ! Suggestion: Not only it would be great for this to be fixed but, Dev's should implement a complementary method of Page re-reorder instead of havong only one way to do that, thus putting us in safe land; if one fails, we can use the other method. Blessings !
  4. I'm using Affinity 1.7.0.258 (Beta). When I make 2 curves with pressure and then Expand this stroke, then I join both curves in 1 object with the pathfinder "Add" it make a lot of nodes and I think that is not to well have 500+ nodes in a curve that you can made with probably 3 nodes.. while y'all fix the problem, there any way to reduce the amount of nodes? Here I upload a picture for example: In the image, you can see in the top curve (Already fixed) compared with the bottom curve (No Fixed) and you can tell the difference. I would like have a option for maintain the same aspect reducing the nodes. So, you can make any shape using the pen, pencil or brush and this option will help you to reduce nodes. Another issue is, when you expand a stroke with or without pressure, it distortion the beautiful and smooth corner, look the image like example: In the image, the stoke are the same size, the top one is with pressure and expanded, the second one is the original (No expanded) and the third one is with no pressure and expanded. I would like y'all fix it. Another Issue is, when I duplicate a object using "Ctrl + Drag the object" it make like 4 or 5 more copies of the same object. Another problem is, when want resize any shape using "Ctrl + Shift" for scale in the same place keeping the same ratio, of moment starting scaling like if you release the Ctrl Key but you still holding it, so, you have to release the key and hold press again..
  5. Problem Gradients have bothered me forever, not only Affinity but every piece of software that has them. Turns out that both gradients and blur are subject to the same problem, which is that they are not performing the color average calculations correctly. The issue is best explained in this video. The gradient is on the left and the blur is on the right. The color between these two is too dark. This happens for every color combination. You can also see the edges of the gradient because it is being calculated linearly. The fix below using gradients is still wrong because it still is victim to the darkness resulting from the bad average calculation. This is also a good example of the linear gradient issue because you can see a definitive purple line down the center. This is my best attempt to fix the linear gradient and make it more logarithmic This calculation issue is also extremely visible in the color chooser The examples above are all using Adobe RGB, not sRGB. Suggested fix Idea 1 Because many documents are now using the wrong calculation, my suggested fix would be to add an option to the gradient tool for what type of calculation to use in order to maintain compatibility with older documents. Idea 2 Take the Photoshop approach and just make it a document setting (and turn it on by default for new documents). Result Fixing this will result in a more accurate and pleasing gradient and blur tool. Fixing this will also fix the linear gradient problem, which causes the center and edges of gradients to be extremely visible since they are not being calculated logarithmically to compensate for how humans perceive brightness/color. Here is a snapshot of the video I linked above showing what the blur and gradient should look like:
  6. Affinity Photo is really amazing graphics designing software...But it really sucks when I work with color gradient & texture...Does anyone have any idea about how to use this type of rainbow gradient fill on text or any object in Affinity Photo v1.5...???
  7. In the past I (and others reported) had some corrupted files, especially I had for example a crash at program start because of a corrupted AppData-Affinity-Folder, that later turned out to be a corrupt assets.propcol file. I don't have the broken files any longer, but I was thinking about a way of recovering data out of such corrupt files. Is there already a tool or command line switch or other way to try to recover such files? If I think I would manage all my assets and brushes in those files and out of a sudden it get's unusable for the Affinity program, I would go crazy. It would be good to have a tool that could try to read the file and try to recover as much as it could and write a new file with all that could be recovered (keeping and not writing to the corrupt file of course). Maybe rewriting header or stuff like that, or if it can't detect the file from the file itself, that someone can say, hey this was an assets.propcol file for example and then it tries to recreate it.
  8. Do any of you know how to fix a lazy eye? My right eye is a little more closed than my left eye when professional pictures are taken. This is really frustrating for me and I want to fix it with this application. Just not sure how to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Matthew
  9. Hi, I have a question regarding the working area (Mac version). How can I fix the object / drawing area and stopping it from moving around whilst my finger moves over the mouse? Thx.
  10. The dark UI has one huge flaw where it's hard to tell at times whether something is active or not, such as the snapping tool. Sometimes I've had to click it a few times to see which is darker. Why not have it be something that's NOT gray or black? What about a subtle color to highlight or some other effect to show something is on or off? I should be able to glance at the magnet to know what the state is rather than stare at it or click it twice to check. Saw this suggested by others. The Light UI is nice but that doesn't solve the issue in the current theme.
  11. Hi- I'm a cinematographer and I just bought Affinity based on the fact that it offers video-style waveform and vector scopes. That's huge for me as I often shoot stills as proof-of-concepts for commercial shoots and I need to quickly manipulate them to show to a client and director, and no other stills program (or at least none that I'm aware of) has exposure controls that allow me to evaluate and correct exposure and color so easily and consistently across photos. But: The vectorscope layout is whacked. Red should be at the top around 11:30. Blue should be roughly at 3:00. Green should be around 7:00. There should be a line (the "I" line) that falls between red and yellow and makes for a perfect flesh tone target. Default gain should be 2x (or 200%). I've attached an image showing what a proper vectorscope should look like. I consult and teach training courses for DSC Labs, who make the Chroma Du Monde HD test charts, so I've done a lot of work with waveform/vectorscopes both as a cinematographer and as a tech guru. Feel free to get in touch if I can help out in correcting this. Thanks.
  12. The SVG Export is very overloaded, overcrowded, ...extremly suboptimal. I'll give you an easy sample: Take the Union Jack from the Wikipedia. It has 522 Bytes. That's the code <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 60 30" width="1200" height="600"> <clipPath id="t"> <path d="M30,15 h30 v15 z v15 h-30 z h-30 v-15 z v-15 h30 z"/> </clipPath> <path d="M0,0 v30 h60 v-30 z" fill="#00247d"/> <path d="M0,0 L60,30 M60,0 L0,30" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="6"/> <path d="M0,0 L60,30 M60,0 L0,30" clip-path="url(#t)" stroke="#cf142b" stroke-width="4"/> <path d="M30,0 v30 M0,15 h60" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="10"/> <path d="M30,0 v30 M0,15 h60" stroke="#cf142b" stroke-width="6"/> </svg> Open it with Affinity Designer. Export it as SVG. It becomes 1528 Bytes. That nearly 3 times more. And the SVG code is just messy. Another sample: Take the Stars and Stripes from the Wikipedia. It has 899 Bytes This is the code <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" width="1235" height="650" viewBox="0 0 7410 3900"> <rect width="7410" height="3900" fill="#b22234"/> <path d="M0,450H7410m0,600H0m0,600H7410m0,600H0m0,600H7410m0,600H0" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="300"/> <rect width="2964" height="2100" fill="#3c3b6e"/> <g fill="#fff"> <g id="s18"> <g id="s9"> <g id="s5"> <g id="s4"> <path id="s" d="M247,90 317.534230,307.082039 132.873218,172.917961H361.126782L176.465770,307.082039z"/> <use xlink:href="#s" y="420"/> <use xlink:href="#s" y="840"/> <use xlink:href="#s" y="1260"/> </g> <use xlink:href="#s" y="1680"/> </g> <use xlink:href="#s4" x="247" y="210"/> </g> <use xlink:href="#s9" x="494"/> </g> <use xlink:href="#s18" x="988"/> <use xlink:href="#s9" x="1976"/> <use xlink:href="#s5" x="2470"/> </g> </svg> Open the SVG with Affinity Designer and export it as SVG. It becomes 13.925 Bytes! That 15 times more!! That caught my breath. Let's try something more complex: the flag of Portugal. (13.160 Bytes) And export it... Result: 53.139 Bytes !!! The files get fat and unreadable. That's totally unacceptable. And that were just simple samples.
  13. Affinity Designer is fantastic. Not because I'm a great drawer or illustrator. I'm printing and prepress professional and in the past week I have had two times where it Illustrator or Indesign could not take an existing PDF and deal with the file right. Designer was able to bring in the PDF and let us alter it to get the vector logo out. I do this regularly but I usually don't get errors importing into Illustrator but I did on this one and Designer saved us. Today a font was not embedded in a PDF that someone created in Corel. We were able to install the font on the Mac, open the PDF in Affinity, adjust a little bit because the person did a poor job designing and resaved - the ad came out perfect! I'm looking forward to the page layout program with how well Designer is working.
