  1. Hi guys, It would be great if when using gradient colors, we could use the COLOR PICKER tool. For example, I have an object that has a gradient color. When I click on one of the handlers, to change one of the colors, if I use the color picker tool, the shape loses its gradient color and turns into the color chosen by the color picker, regardless of the fact that I first clicked on one of the gradient handlers. It would be great if when clicking on a gradient handler, and afterwards selecting the color picker tool and selecting a color, only the color of the gradient linked to the handler I clicked on, will be changed. I was actually surprised it doesn't work like this by default Thank you, Chris
  2. Affinity Designer 1.7.3 (Mac OS Mojave) The problem occurs when exporting to PSD format an object with a gradient filling and transparency set to below 100%. Affinity Designer graphics: Export result to a Photoshop file: Photoshop gradient layer is rasterised to 50% (this is where the problem is) + opacity set to 50% (properly) Could be a duplicate of this topic:
  3. Hello, I have this issue. Not properly visualized gradient Affinity (Publisher; Designer) Google Chrome visualization.svg
  4. Hi all. I've spent way more time than I should have trying to get a gradient fill to go vertically in Designer. I don't think I've ever before seen a graphics application that offered a gradient fill but lacked any way to control its angle. Even if there is a method buried somewhere in this application, it may as well not exist. It needs to be in the gradient-fill controls. Baffling.
  5. Hello, I'm not sure to understand the default behavior of the gradient tool. Why is it giving me this color, instead of reducing light? How can I make the gradient tool reduce L by default? Am I missing something?
  6. It would be good to have a graduated brightness adjustment. For example, I have a photograph of a group of people on a staircase taken with flash. Those at the bottom of the staircase are, of course, brighter than those at the top. It would be good to use a brightness or levels adjustment to compensate for the gradual loss of brightness the further up the staircase you go.
  7. how do you fill a shape with a gradient that already has been used in another shape? I'm trying to use the same gradient already being used, but cannot figure out how to "transfer" the same fill to another object??
  8. I want to create an effect of a radial color burst on top of my existing layers. It needs to be normal blending mode. and I want it to gradate from intense in the middle to transparent on the edges. How do I do that in affinity photo?
  9. I want to edit the color of multiple objects at the same time, independently of their color, Gradients, stroke, transparency, etc Something like this: In illustrator there was two diferent ways to accomplish that, including other modifications available (As saturation and brightness for example), with its own settings panel Do Affinity Designer have a tool/feature that allow to modify the color of one or many objects to other colors?
  10. If you apply to an object a gradient and then add a modification using the transparent tool the result will be one gradient predominating the other after exporting using SVG format Only works if there is neither a gradient or a transparency applied, not both together sample 1.afdesign
  11. Similar to this: The idea is to add a setting panel for colors that allow to edit the color of gradients, and objects in general, simultaneously or singular Adding other options for the settings, as saturation or brightness Most important for SVG format files
  12. As it is for color, it would be useful to have a quick live preview gradient settings in the studio
  13. Hi guys, I am new here in our 4rum but I have used AD for more than 3 years. This is an amazing tool which made me quit all Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I believe AD can match against Adobe after all. However, the new version of Illustrator 2019 has an incredible feature which is Freeform Gradient. Some people might say meh it sucks but I found out that it is quite cool, especially for people who use AD as a drawing tool and suck in coloring like me. I am wondering that will AD dev implement this feature to AD in the near future? It is already 10 months since the last update for AD in Mac and I am really excited to know that we will have a new big update for AD.
  14. Hi - I've been tinkering with Publisher and want to leave the current program I use, but am stuck on what's probably a simple solution. I'm trying to fill a rectangle and want the fill to transition horizontally like in the attachment, but I can only get it to vertically, blue on left, red in middle, yellow on right. I'm sure there's something very simple I'm missing, but I can't figure it out. In the program I currently use, there's an "angle" adjust to rotate the fill to any orientation I want. Thanks!

    Gradient tool

    When applying a gradient onto a fill layer, and you have accepted the adjustment and the gradient tool closes. Is it possible to reopen or select the gradient that has been applied to allow for further adjustment. As I am progressing through an edit I sometimes want to come back to the fill layer with the gradient applied and want adjust. At the moment I am deleting the original layer and re-adding. I am sure I am missing something obvious here. grateful for any help. i am using both the desktop and iPad versions.
  16. Hi guys, I have created a color gradient in a layer fx (see image) - now I want to copy that gradient somehow or ideally make it a swatch/global gradient. But I don't see how. Thanks in advance, Stefan.
  17. Hi folks, I came across an issue when I was trying to copy a style across various shape sizes, and when I was using boolean expressions to change a shape which already had a bitmap gradient style applied. If I create an object, and then apply a style to it, duplicate this (boolean issue.png) and then change the shape of the object with boolean expressions it changes the way the style has been applied (boolean issue 2.png). If I create the object and don't duplicate, then use boolean expressions it keeps the same bitmap gradient (boolean issue 3.png) or if I change to curves and add/remove nodes it keeps the style the same as it should be (boolean issue 4.png). The original is on the left, the duplicated version is on the right, both had a 'Subtract' applied (boolean issue 5.png) Thanks
  18. I cant get a purchased EPS file to open in Photo without losing all resolution. It looks awful. What am I doing wrong?
  19. Hey there, I am using Publisher now for some weeks and get really into it. A great plus is the not-lagging experience on large files I knew from Ado... A week ago I started a print project with Publisher and I have to set Logos from an agency. So I import the .eps files I need. But there is an error in importing the gradient used in this logo. Open the file in Affinity Designer shows the same bug. Open the files in Adobe Illustrator everything seems okay. For a self try I exported the files to .pdf, older versions of .eps to .svg but everywhere the bug (and on older versions of eps new bugs...) is still there. Copy paste from Illustrator to Publisher/Designer works often but in this special case not. Same bug result :-( What also is confusing to me is the fact, that the color also seems changing. You can see it on the attached image. The right gradient seems lighter than the original left one!?... Confusing I don't want to use png files in a high quality product also in case of possible cmyk color problems. Has somebody an idea how to fix this or how to make a workaround? Thanks a lot! Max
  20. Hey guys, I'm trying to make a black to transparent fading gradient, I drew a rectangle shape on 1/3 height of the page and use the transparent tool to click on bottom of the shape and drag to the top straight, midpoint set the standard 50% but on top of the shape, it appear to have noticeable edge and not completely fade to transparent and blend in to the background image, can you guys let me know how to settle this? I try to set the midpoint to 55% because I want the black are to be a bit higher and then make a second midpoint and set it to 45% and the edge don't noticeable much but because there's 2 midpoints, the gradient looks like a 3 bar with black, dark gray and light gray shading. And how do i make sure tire's no banding problem with amazon KDP print? Please help! Gradient Test.afdesign
  21. I was doing a graphic and at a certain point with the gradient tool I discovered this thing casually The gradient fill tool is to a stroke, and the gradient type is linear... How did I this?
  22. Stroke width goes by increments of 0.1 pt, which is very coarse (also degrees when rotating and shearing an object). This means I can't even go by quarters in AD because it requires 2 decimal places (if using decimals). I'd like to see this changed to maybe 5 decimal places or just using fractions (for things like exact thirds). Gradient controls only go in increments of 1%. I'd like to see this drop to maybe 0.0001% and maybe add different gradient interpolation modes (like easing, cubic, hold, 1-bit dithering, etc.) and more cool stuff. Please give us more control than what Illustrator gives!
  23. Since the early beta Versions I encounter very low rendering quality while exporting a setup with a gradient image and some overlays. If I just "print" it into a PDF it looks formidable so it is not a problem of PDF itself. It would be good to be able to export natively via the export option an not going via the print2pdf option. See files attached please. This happens in all PDF Quality Settings. Colorspace for Export and ICC Profile is "as in Document".
  24. Hi guys, Is there a possibility to change the angle of a gradient stroke? Can the gradient fill tool be also used for strokes somehow? Cheers, Chris
  25. Hi there, I never worked with vector software so this is the first time and I'm not an expert pen tool user. I would like to export an EPS file but my first try was fail. I found tha answer in this forum if I using an FX that's rasterizing the layers. I would like to use correct a vector file. If I remove FX from the file the vector is working. But this FX was a gradient effect through the layers so affected to every object. But I don't know how can I replace the FX to something else. Because if I want to make a gradient that affects only one layer. If I want to use this gradient in every layer the gradients always starting the layers corners and not from the global position. If I make shape as a new color layer with the gradient, the gradient make a background instead of transparency. If I want to use clipping mask I have this very irritating auto fill problem: This tool has a same effect: I hope I was understandable. Thank you very much.
