5. ## What's the difference between »Divide« and »Separate Curves«?

Hey folks, I'm just wondering what' the difference between the two options in the Layer → Geometry menu. At first glance they both seem to have the same function – maybe someone can enlighten me? 💡 Cheers and … wash your hands MrDoodlezz 😄
6. ## Incorrect geometry work

Hi, i have some problem, and probably im not the only one. When im try to merge two paths or subtract one path from another path, happens some kind chaos. It all started in version 1.8, in 1.7 everything was fine. I am very worried that I will have to rollback, because the new version has a photo bank, good work of extended stroke and other features. Help me or fix it, please🙏 The video shows the problem. Sorry for my english, im from Russia ☺️
7. ## Geometry function divide - fine lines

I hope that I can describe the problem correctly. I am working on a logo, which should consist of the letters O and K. The K should be in front of the O, as well as behind the O. After I drew an ellipse, which should represent the O, and converted it to a donut, I wrote the K over it with the Artistic Text Tool. Next, I selected the two layers (the layer with the ellipse is on top) and used the geometry function divide. Then I deleted protruding parts from the K and colored other parts that should be displayed above the ellipse. Unfortunately very fine lines are always displayed. I don't know how I can prevent this. Can anyone help me? For clarification I have exported a PNG and I also provide my afdesign file. ok.afdesign
8. ## improve the tools of (Geometry)

Hello everyone! I have opened this thread with the intention of recommending an improvement in geometry tools, generally I have used Adobe illustrator and corel Draw although more corel draw than illustrator xD in fact by the simplicity of their tools especially those of fusion and trimming, I explain... Having two or more objects and wanting to make an intersection is usually the area where the intersection is formed and the rest is eliminated, isn't it? in corel the intersection creates a new object (of that intersection) leaving intact the two selected elements, this is very useful to illustrate human figure where sometimes we do not want to lose the elements and rather create a new one. Another tool and I think that of the best is the back less front and less front behind, usually seems absurd, say (hey but for that I can place the object in front and subtract it from the back, but believe me the practicality of having two buttons summarizes a few steps and is quite comfortable. and maybe I say it from the perspective of a user who uses mostly coreldraw, but every designer who has tried those tools feels that all other programs should have the same function. (that's what I said when I tried several corel things and decided to change my software) affinity has a great power!! ahhh and forgot to recommend you to use flat icons, I don't know why but I think the user experience could improve a little with them. Greetings!
9. ## Geometry icon text label consistency for Mac and PC?

Hi, just a quick question: Could anyone confirm if the name for the Geometry icon label is the same now for the Mac and PC versions? Formerly they had different names "Geometry" for Mac and "Operations" for Windows. I am on a mac, so I'd need to know if this is now consistent or if I should prevent users about this when explaining the UI. Thanks!
10. ## How to make geometric patterns like Adober Illustrators Transform effect

Hi. I would like to know if there is anything in Affinity designer like the Adobe Illustrators transform effect? (See video below) I am wanting to make complex geometric patterns. I know about power duplicate in affinity but it seems like there is far much more control with the transform tool in Illustrator, plus it saves a lot of time. I have posted an example video below from Adobe Illustrator, this is what I am looking to do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCwmEfCsPdw&t=328s Can any one point me in the right direction? Or are we limited to power duplicate in Affinity designer/photo? Any ideas/help will be appreciated! Thank you for your time. Dan.
11. ## Geometry XOR: Is this, umm, normal?

Howdy friends! I was building a few vector shapes for a design and playing with the Geometry options to "knock out" overlapping parts of the shapes, etc. At some point I inadvertently hit the "XOR" function in the Geometry toolbar, and … well, it brought up a slowly pulsating "Xor" progress bar on top of the window. There's no option to cancel or dismiss it; I can't edit or do anything with the document while it's there; and I've tried Escape, Return, control-C, command-C, option-C, and a bunch of other keystrokes to try to kill the process. It's been running for several minutes now … I selected a few objects but I don't think it was anything THAT complex to take so long to figure out? I could kill the app, but … well, that would lose a few minutes work, and … is this normal? Thanks!
12. ## Geometry actions broken in 1.7.1

I posted a separate thread about issues with a drawing that disappeared when I performed ExpandStrokes/Add/Divide. I tried a completely new drawing and when I try the same sequence, the Geometry Add action enters an infinite loop and never completes. I tried on the Mac and the same thing happened as well. Has something changed in this area recently? It’s kind of unworkable now... blob-06.afdesign
13. ## Geometry tools slightly distort shapes as well as slicing them

The algorithms for some of the geometry tools seem to be slightly off when calculating where the finishing shapes should be. In the video, I placed a blue circle under the red one to show that the combined shapes to be divided before I do it don't match the combined shapes after I hit "Divide." geometry_tool_problem1.mp4
14. ## 2019 Affinity Designer Geometry Tools Delete Layers

Hi all, I am trying to create a drop shadow for text but when it comes to subtracting the layers needed that overlap, both layers delete. I have read a few posts on here, with replies from moderator MEB (QA Support) but none seem to be able to verify my problem in particular. I have expanded stroke of outline text to shapes instead of lines as to not incur a boolean operation, but even still I cannot seem to get the two layers that are both shapes to subtract from each other and be left with a sweet ass drop shadow to my text. I have followed along to a few tutorials by 7th Season Studios on youtube but those tutorials are from the older version. If someone would be able to help me and even suggest some channels on youtube for designer tutorial channels of the latest 2019 version I would appreciate it greatly. Thank you very much for your time and your help.
15. ## Making Compound shifts objects around

I'm running into a problem when making an intersecting compound. Basically, the German Flag seems to shift to the point where you can only see the bottom third or so (see video). I've used this function many times and have never seen this before. Affinity_Designer_6_29_2019_10_03_10_PM.mp4
16. ## affinity designer Abstract

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
18. ## Geometry Add feature failing

Hi, I was working on a project and attempted to use the Geometry Add feature in Affinity Designer, but have encountered an issue. Please reference the attached image file for an example of my issue. The feature works just fine when I add a shape to the top of my a rectangle, however, when I add the same shape to the bottom of the rectangle and click Add nothing happens. I've messed around and tried a few different things, but to no avail thus far.
19. ## Dividing an object into equal parts

Hi guys, First of all. Thanks for an awesome programme - which I have started to get more and more familiar with. I am currently working on making different geometric designs, and was wondering how you would, say divide a circle into equal parts, in a more easy way than making each separate line by yourself? This would save me a lot of work, and I really hope there is a intuitive way of doing this. Just for the record, I´m a newbie into graphics and was formerly frightened by the complexity of previous programs and have taken the leap with affinity - be gentle in your advices :) Thanks in advance!
20. ## Geometry (boolean) tools

As it seems at this point there is no geometry tools (boolean) in publisher. Is this a possibility in future versions? I find it very useful for modeling image containers, shapes , etc… and is a tool I use a lot on InDesign. I hope this could be easy to implement, as the tool already exist on Designer and shouldn't be very different on Publisher (happy hope)
21. ## Geometry is not working properly

Hi everyone, I spent around 1 hrs trying to figure out how to solve this.When using the Geometry feature, after the Subtract action the rectangle remains an object portion, like a line. As you can see I had to create 3 more steps instead 1, any idea why it happened? Thank you Affinity_bug.mp4
22. ## Shape within shape border problems

Hey Affinity Experts, I have been trying to erase a top border on two combined custom shapes. One shape is dark suit jacket while the other shape is a white shirt shape on top of black suit jacket shape. My problem is that when I layer the shapes a very thin black outline remains from black shape. See example. How can I remove this black top outline? Do I have to erase it or is there a way to layer the shapes that causes the black border line to disappear at overlap. Thanks!

24. ## Affinity Designer fills subtracted area

Hi Affinity Designer Users ! I redesign a logo for one of our customers and need some help. I have to subtract the red area from the blue... as I subtract it, Affinity Designer just subtract "HWABEN", but "SC" stays blue and is not subtracted. What can I do ? I really need help ! Thanks in advance. Best regards Lucas
25. ## Is there any discussion about spherical grids?

Hi, I'm new to Affinity Designer and Photo, bought them last year, using both tools to develop my job as an Environmental Engineer. It's possible to develop a spherical grid or geometrical grid manager to draw worlds like Lazy Nezumi software? Thank you!
