  1. Hi there, I don't appear to be able to find an existing answer in the forum on this, I am looking to edit some Divi .ai files and i am sure that this is possible in Affinity (I am trialling). I am following these instructions: https://www.elegantthemes.com/blog/divi-resources/how-to-change-the-colors-of-divis-copywriter-layout-pack-illustrations (second method, the first method wasn't good enough). I am fine until I get to step 6, but I am struggling to see how I 'grab' the existing global colours in the file set, using the advice for 'the other place'. Does anyone know ho
  2. There should be a black outline on these indicators, otherwise you can't see them on white swatches. See the attached image, and the name of the swatches. The only one you can see is overprint, the others are invisible on white. Thanks!
  3. I was waiting for the actual 1.9 beta to come out before posting this, but since it doesn't look like it's coming any time soon, I might as well post it in advance. Even if work in the UI has already started, I still think it's relevant to post this. If for nothing else then to make sure you avoid doing the global colours editor UI in the same disastrous way Adobe did with Illustrator for the iPad released today. To avoid the above you must understand one thing, the whole point of global colours is to finely tune the colours of our illustrations, in real time. This means you must see the
  4. As the short title tries to explain: Copying objects with assigned global colour to a new document does not transfer the document palette. So they retain the colour, but the swatch lives a half life somewhere "in the air". That's a bug. Longer explanation: So I carefully manage my document with named colour swatches inside its document palette. ...maybe for a brochure for a specific client. Then I need to create a related document (same client, partly same graphic objects, obviously same colour swatches.) in a different size, say, for a business card design.
  5. I've searched around and while I see people asking about this, doesn't seem like there's any kind of formal request for this feature so here's one. Essentially it's what the title says, please add the ability to create, edit and apply global colour swatches in illustrations and designs done on the iPad. Global colours are a fundamental part of vector design and illustration, the need for this is vital! Right now the only workaround is to create them on the desktop and then open the file on the iPad, but this has limitations besides not being able to edit the swatches on the device it
  6. Hi Affinity Team, It would be great to have Global Colours available in Layer Effects. For example when adding outer glow, I often use the same colour as the object on which I am applying the effect (e.g: outer glow) but it doesn't automatically change with the colour of the object, neither does it change when I update the Global Colour which I selected to apply to the effect (e.g: outer glow). In fact selecting a Global Colour in the colour palettes of Layer Effects is not available. It's a big waste of time when I have to go back and manually change the colour of the glow (or outli
  7. Hi! I've recently got access to an iPad Pro and I've been dabbling with Affinity Designer. Great stuff, but I've ran into limitations that break my colouring workflow. First let me explain how I do it on the desktop: Draw a vector shape Apply a global colour to this shape Create a pixel layer inside the shape Apply a Colour Overlay effect to the pixel layer Attribute a global colour to the above effect Draw on this layer, the pixel brush colour doesn't matter since the Overlay effect always overrides it Repeat steps 3. to 6. for every colour I want to
  8. It would be really fantastic if it were possible to create global color sets - swatch collections that vary the colors on global swatches, where just selecting a different set gives the ability to rapidly test and edit different color combinations.
  9. As far as I can tell, one cannot directly add noise when creating a global colour. There's a workaround, but it's a bit cumbersome: - Create an object and create/apply a noisy colour - In the swatches panel create a global colour, this will take you to a new colour creation wheel; create any colour you want - Select your noisy colour from 'recent' and drag it to your 'painter palette with a dot' icon - Delete the first global colour (if you don't have a use for it So the feature request is simply to have a noise slider in the global colour panel Thanks!
  10. I was following the design book instructions and playing around when I tried to export a palette to another document. Cue multiple crashes – no need to detail them as they are documented elsewhere. Problem is that I have lost the ability to view global colours in my document. I can still create them but they don't appear anywhere. Both the colours and the palette icon with a dot are nowhere to be seen. Resetting the studio view, restarting Affinity or creating a new document failed to fix the problem. Any other ideas?
