  1. Hi there, I'm trying to expand the outer shadow I've applied to an object so it can be manipulated independently of the source object. e.g. I have a vector of a windmill, I apply the outer shadow to the windmill, expand the outer shadow to its own layer, add a shear to the outer shadow to add perspective to the shadow. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Best, J
  2. Is there a way to clip or grab imported bitmaps on the fly and clip them - At the top of this image, the bitmap isn't quite right - but in the spirit of non-destructive editing - or 'tweaking the colors' of the bitmap, I could clip the bitmap fill until it looked right... adjusting the repeating fills around it.... If we can't - makes a good feature request : )
  3. Affinity Online Help Hello all, we're happy to be able to offer you an online version of the in-app help! Access Designer, Photo & Publisher Help here: https://affinity.help Here are some of the additional features we're able to implement as a result of having proper browser support: Dynamic language switching: The help will determine your language and (if it's available) serve you a localised copy of the help. If you prefer to read in another language, however, you'll find a combo box at the bottom left which will enable you to change languages—and stay on the page you're currently reading. Print: Sounds simple, but with full browser support we can now implement printing of the topic pages. The print icon in the bottom left will give you a nicely formatted printout of the current topic. Share: Clicking the clipboard icon will copy the current topic's URL to your clipboard, which means you can easily point other people towards topics that may help them. Responsive: The help was responsive anyway, including off-canvas menu functionality so you could collapse the window and still read a topic, but this is taken further in this version of the help. The help is formatted nicely and usable even on a 4" iPhone SE screen. Search: we've implemented our own bespoke search for the online help which is fast and accurate. Access it via the tab system along the top left. Favourites: you can add topics to your favourites list to easily access them during future browser sessions. Simply click the + (plus) icon next to the "Favourites" tab to add the current topic. With this online version you'll be able to print out topics and view them on your tablets/phones, which are two of the most common requests when it comes to help feedback. As always, if you have any feedback or find any issues with this online version, please let us know! Hope you find it useful.
  4. I have a habit of searching for help on a particular topic, reading the help, closing the window, promptly forgetting what I have just read and having to repeat. I doubt that I am alone. Would it be possible for the "Help" window to include a list of the last few topics searched?
  5. Hey Guys, I'm a fashion design student and I switched from Adobe Illustrator to Affinity Desginer. I don't want to use AD just for drawings but for technical drawings too. My problem: in Illustrator I had brushes for zippers and stitches. Everytime I drew a straight line I could change the brush into a zipper or a stitch but for AD there is nothing like this pre made brushes available (or haven't found it yet). So, is it possible that someone can explain me how I make this brushes in AD or it would be nice if someone do it for me I attached you the ad file with the pre made shapes This is how they look Thank you in advance Fashion Brushes.afdesign
  6. I used the pen tool on this program way back when (probably late 2017) and had no problem tracing my sketches into vector art. Now when I alt click a node (in 1.7) it turns the entire line straight instead of just removing one handle. Is this supposed to happen? Because right now the tool is virtually unusable.
  7. Hey Guys, Long story short: I was using Affinity Photo 1.8.4 and my computer (macbook pro osx Sierra) crashed. Once I restarted my computer and reopened the program, the project file I was previously working on said my file appears to be corrupted. Is there anyway my work can be restored? Thanks
  8. I have two Publisher projects and I want to know how can I copy or move one page from one Publisher project to another. ? can I export one page then import it?
  9. Basically what i'm trying to do it color in any image for an online class project but what I found really wasn't working so I don't know if someone could make a tutorial on this with affinity photo if you have the time or explain how in the best was possible so I can "understand" (learning style wise) since i'm still trying to learn more about affinity or if you know a better method or anything would just as helpful. Thanks for reading if you did, hopefully I posted this in the right spot. Example:
  10. So I’ve been trying to export this picture that I made to PDF and it isn’t working. Random lines show up and letters are missing. Even some of the color that I put in has moved and isn’t showing up. I don’t know what’s going on at all. I’m trying to do PDF print and PDF for export so that I can use this as a logo. All of the layers are normal Would it be better to use PNG instead for printing a logo? I need the vector to come out beautifully. Gin Glow RGB final?.pdf Gin_Glow_RGB_).pdf
  11. Hi folks have loved using Affinity Photo design for the last few years and will never be going back to Photoshop. I am having issues however with getting the Library Macros to work, ie Light Leaks , neon fade and all that fun stuff. They all import however when clicking they do not apply or bring up any menu Can someone help?
  12. I’m a fashion student so do a lot of my technical drawings on this app, however I’m having trouble exporting them. SVG is really the only file that when exported still gives me crisp clear lines but recently I’ve started having issues I’ve attached an example of one of my drawings vs what happens when it exports, ill export it as an svg (for export) and ill go into my files and it will look completely fine within a few minutes I go back to see if it’s all good and I’m left with either nothing or one small part of a drawing . I’d appreciate any help or advice on this issue I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong or if there is something else I can export it as without compromising the quality? I’ve attached screenshots below.
  13. That might sound like a bit of a strange thing to say - “Yeah, so it does what it’s supposed to, what's wrong with that?” - but when you switch Persona to either Designer or Photo you still get just the Publisher help and not the help for the persona you’re in. I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing but it doesn’t seem right to me somehow. For example, while in the Designer persona I might want to see how to use the Vector Brush Tool, which isn’t in Publisher, but I can only see the Publisher help so I can’t see the help for that tool. It’s not a massive problem as we also have the online help available from a browser but I thought I’d mention it. I didn’t think this was a bug as such so I didn’t post this in the Bugs forum.
  14. Ungrouping anything in any file in affinity designer 1.8.3 for MacOS breaks most element on the screen screen and undoing the ungroup does not fix it, neither does reverting to a earlier snapshot. I am fairly new to the program but I'm pretty sure that this isn't supposed to happen, not sure if it's something I have done or just a bug with my version. AFFINITY_DESIGNER_UNGROUP_BUG.mov
  15. Hi There, I'm really frustrated as I was recommended Affinity Photo by a friend as my Photoshop license ran out. ANY .eps file I open is blurry, pixelated etc. Its physically IMPOSSIBLE to work with. These files are from Shutterstock. Am I doing something wrong? I've attached a print screen of a similar image and what I'm getting in Affinity.
  16. Hi, i'm trying to do a logo, and i spent the last two hours to figure out how obtain a orange tie for my podcaster cat without any solution I cannot switch or create more than Black and White vector, this is a screenshot example Please help me! Thanks.
  17. In illustrator when drawing with the pencil you can see the outline of where you're drawing. Is this possible in affinity? Seems pretty odd that it's invisible until you raise your pen from the tablet.
  18. Hello, How to set the text position in AF Designer like in the photo below? -Thanks!
  19. Is it possible to fill any shape or vector with a Bitmap / Pattern fill in Affinity Designer? I can't see the option in Fill settings anywhere. Or is this feature only available in Affinity Photo?? And if so - why???
  20. Hey there! Been using Publisher to design bulletins and whatnot for a couple of people. Each person has their own branding style and information, which (due to how I build the bulletins) can make rebranding take a while. I've been theorizing a system where I can simply select which brand the bulletin is being built for and automatically adjust colors and fonts the way I need them but I don't know how to actually make it effective in Publisher. I thought about using text styles but that seems like it could be rather inefficient. Any ideas?
  21. Hello - Is the "help" function broken? After I enter my topic or search term into help and select return, nothing happens. Shouldn't a browser open as a response? I need help with help. My platform is 2013 MacBook pro with Catalina OS. Thank you
  22. Hi just wondering if Affinity Photo is compatible with PSD multichannel documents ? Could such a file be opened and edited and re-saved in psd format ? Does photo have its own multichannel format and can this be opened with photoshop ? Similar question for Affinity Designer, is it compatible with AI format ? Can Ai files be opened edited and re-saved in AI format ? What is the native format for Designer files and is this compatible with AI ? Ive been using Adobe apps for 25 years so very interested in Affinity products. If the answers to the above questions are favourable making the change will be a no brainer. thanks.
  23. When I try to export from my iPad as an EPS to my laptop something happens to the strokes, this is what it looks like on both. Can someone help?
  24. Search in Japanese/Chinese isn't working. I reported this a while ago and it haven't been fixed. https://affinity.help/designer/ja.lproj/ https://affinity.help/designer/zh-Hans.lproj/ https://affinity.help/photo/ja.lproj/ https://affinity.help/photo/zh-Hans.lproj/
