  1. Hello The problem: I have have had Affinity Designer for 1 year now i think, but had not used it for a while. Came back to 1.7.1 version and the program felt a bit slow. I did update to 1.7.2 and still have this issue, With slow i mean, every time i used the view tool, the screen felt like, it was moving with a 0.1sec delay (huge smoothign effect) same goes for selection tool when selecting an area or simply moving objects, Bigger files around 50-60 MB are even worse sadly. What i tried: I tried looking into the performance settings and found the cause, which is the Nvidia GPU render option. I use laptop so i tried integrated card: Intel HD 630 and it started working pretty smooth, but has weird lag spikes from time to time. What may be the cause for the software to slower down on Nvidia GPU? First i thought i may have throttling issues, but i have undervolted my CPU and the laptop never reaches more than 42* temp. My laptop specs: Dell XPS 15 9570 CPU: Intel i7 - 7850h GPU: Nvidia GTX 1050 TI - Max Q edition Ram: 32Gb In short, the Intel Graphics work better which should not be like that and any help is appriciated
  2. Hello, I have many projects made with older than current 1.7.2 version, and now when I open them I'm facing a problem related with mask in groups and my files are all messed up. The issue is that when you group layer adjustments and then apply a mask on the group, the mask is applied to everything underneath and not only to group contents. I attached an example file, the mask applied to the group should be applied to Curves adjustment and Recolour adjustment, instead it's applied to the layer underneath. I made a mockup image of the actual result vs what should be. Thanks example.afphoto
  3. HI All, I have already seen the thread - But it does not seem to help me. I am using 1.7.2.471 version of Affinity and Windows 10 (Surface Book First Version). And the second copy is how it looks in default Windows Photos Raw viewer. Please help me what is wrong with this as, I used a batch processing on my RAW photos and they seem to look completely different if I try to do it one photo at a time. Thanks

    Brush Editing Freeze

    I've been experiencing a number of app freezes on my iMac while creating a custom brush for a project this morning. Creating a new brush is easy, but as soon as I start changing the values of the "Size" and/or "Spacing" (although I haven't even tried changing other options) in the brush editor, I get the spinning rainbow wheel. I hoped that the app was just processing the request to change those values (and taking a bit longer than usual), but it ultimately froze up completely, resulting in me having to Force Quit Photo. Upon reopening, I tried it again, and the same thing happened over and over again. All I created was a standard Round brush, and when trying to change the values in the brush editor, I experienced app freezes every time, without fail. Entering the value is not an issue, but pressing 'tab' to enter the next value section, or simply clicking in the next box with my mouse results in a total freeze.
  5. In the attached image, the top 'example' word is Artistic Text. the bottom 'example' word is text that has been converted to curves and then had the strokes expanded with the menu item under 'Layer.' The L is very off, but other letters are also visibly (although slightly) distorted as well. If there is a setting that bumps up the accuracy of this, then please let me know. Otherwise, the one trick I know to reduce this is to expand the stroke when the shape/text is really, really big (multiply the size by a huge factor) and then size it back down by the same factor afterwards. I do not remember this happening back when I was using Illustrator. Note: This is as of v. 1.7.1 and haven't tried this in 1.7.2 yet. If this has been fixed in 1.7.2, then great.
  6. Affected Version: 1.7.1 I tried to reproduce some photoshop styles I used to color smoke like fire. This actually works quite well. The issue here is that I cannot distinguish between the several styles I have created, as the previews in the styles panel is empty. Screenshot: There are actually 18 styles in the selected category, all selectable through a transparent square that hightlights blue when clicked.
  7. Hello, I recently noted that when I import some (not all) RAW photos and hit the "Develop" button, some weird artifacts have occurred and are very noticeable even after the export at max quality. If I do the exact same process on AP on Mac, the export is perfectly clean and without any weird colours or artifacts. I’ve attached an example of photo that looks good when in AP and changes when exported to JPG. On the right side of the screenshot, there is the exported picture opened on the floating window of Apple Photo. The photo was shot with a Nikon D7000. Thanks for your help! EDIT: after re-installing the app on the iPad it seems to work perfectly and no noise or artifacts can be spotted on the same RAW files I was testing. What's the reason for this?
  8. When I attempt to make any changes to the art in progress, as a example changing vector layer name, this will cause the app to freeze and crash. After working for a few hours the app was freezing and would crash and loose the work I had completed. This happened multiple times. I have the newest version for apple on the newest iPad Pro, and installed new version 1.7.0.9 when issue started. When I opened the app, changed vector name, and pressed back button, it crashs. I then tried to end the task and try again, same issue. Turned off the iPad and tried again, same issue. I am honestly annoyed because the app won't save any work I do and crashes after so much is done or I press the back arrow to hone screen. Is there any ideas on how to fix this??
  9. Good morning, I have tried to install the new version of Affinity Photo (1.7.1.). Unfortunately, the only option / button I get is "Update" (see screenshot) although I cannot find any Affinity Photo software, version, etc on the computer. As soon as I click "Update", another window pops up, saying that there is an "Invalid Path". I cannot install the programm. I have changed a hard disk about a year ago due to technical issues but have uninstalled all old software. How can I do a new, fresh, clean installation? Thanks in advance for any advices!!!
  10. I own Affinity Designer and use it to create wedding stationery which I outsource to a local printshop for printing. I always convert the documents to a PDF before emailing to the printshop and have never had any problems before now. This is what is showing up on their end (on my end it is just a nice white border). I have ungrouped every single element in the file and converted them all to curves. I feel like I've tried everything and I'm not sure what to do next to ensure it shows up correctly and can be printed for my customer! * NOTE this is a screenshot that they sent me. I do my work on an iMac and it looks like they use Windows but like I said I've never had any issues in the past with them!*
  11. Hi, I have downloaded the new 1.7.0 version and followed by 1.7.1. The performance is a disaster and a real workstopper. Drawing something with any Brush tool is the worse I have encounter anytime (no matter if Healing, Brush or Clone....). I have a new top series NTB and Wacom Pro..... but I feel like working with old 486 PC :( I have been using AP for about the time of the first official release, but never saw anything like this :( This had not been a case of 1.6. version that one worked fine for me, but now I do draw something on Wacom and have to wait around 2 to 5 seconds till I see it on the screen, which makes any realtime drawing impossible I have tried restarting many times..... sometimes it works most time not...... It does not seem to be problem of Wacom as it looks the same working with touchpad or a mouse. Do not tell me I am the only one with this problem...... Please let me now ASAP as I am a professional and this makes my job unable...... Thanks Jindra
  12. Hello, I have a pretty annoying problem with StudioLink... So I have the three Affinity apps on Windows (no Beta version, I bought all of these), but when I go into Publisher then I click on the Designer Persona button in the top left corner, it displays that: I can't switch into the Designer Persona, just as if it wasn't on my PC... Note: My apps are up-to-date and I've already launched them at least once. They're in the default installation folder which is defined during their setup. Do you have any clue? Thank you!
  13. 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…?
  14. Hello there, I am searching for a solution for the performance issue when I'm working with bigger vectorgraphics. My System is stable and doesn't provide any bottlenecks. CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1700X Eight-Core Processor, 3394 MHz RAM: 16GB DDR4 GPU: AMD Radeon R9 200 Series (4095 MB) This is while working with really large vectorfiles: Affinity (big vector) just opened. ...while zooming in and out very fast. My Problem is now, that I don't know how to merge those files - they are so detailed like I never would need them. But I want them to stay vectorfiles to change their size afterwards like I need them. While working with such files, the performance is very bad, I can't copy and paste anything on realtime, or change anything without big lags (adding a new line of words - 15-30 sec). Does anybody know, how I can change those files, lower the details without changing vector to pixelgraphic? What I have tried: 1. Saving them to compressed .svg => not the best idea (poor details) 2. Merging them with boolean operators (this changes pixels to the same color) => useless Thanks mates. Have a great day! Best regards Chris
  15. Hi there! First thanks for reading my query, I really appreciate that. To my issue: I'm having problems exporting .svg files as (for example) .png files. They show me some weird lines around each vector - which shouldn't be the case really. Worst thing is that you can see that in the final result, rendering the product/effort almost useless. I will provide an example in the attachments, but what I do is just opening (or placing) the .svg file - resizing it - exporting it (with the PNG-24 preset). I'm using "Vector magic" to create these .svgs and they seem fine in the preview, as well as the .png exported from vector magic. Problem is as soon as I open the .svg in affinity designer (in order to edit them) hell breaks loose Thank you so much for helping me! Best regards Marvin M. #I'm using affinity designer 1.6.5.135 Normal_SVG_preview_in_chrome.svg

    Expand Stroke issue

    Hi, maybe it is not completely a bug, but I believe this should be fixed if it is a software fault. Problem: If I use Layer > expand stroke on rounded curves results are not as expected and what is interesting - this effect intensifies when the curve has a smaller size. The picture below shows 12px wide circle affected by what I am talking about. I figured out that I can draw a large circle, expand it and scale it down for better results - but it's a poor solution for the long run. My Affinity Designer version: 1.6.5.135 M. Kowalewski
  17. Hello, I have a problem on AD for iPad. My illustration of eps files that are exported from AD for iPad are always refused to upload to Shutterstock. The reject reason is because the file is less than 4MP. I found out that the eps file size is smaller than the original size. The original file size is always more than 4MP (for example 11000px X 4000px, 5000px X 5000px). However, the exported eps file size is 2052.8px X 647.4px, 1200px X 1200px... I do not find out the rule of the percentage to be shrunk so I do not expect what size I should set the original file. I would like to upload eps files to shutterstock because that is gradually more needed in the world. I attached screen shots. "IMG_0323" shows eps artboard size and "IMG_0324" shows original art board size. Please help me.
  18. Hi! I've noticed quite an annoying bug when selecting and moving raster artwork within Affinity Designer's Pixel Persona. I've noticed this same issue in Affinity Photo, as well as the latest beta versions of Designer and Photo, and I have no clue why it happens. When drawing with something like the pixel brush or any brush that has a hard edge (with little to no anti-aliasing), the artwork blurs when being moved, but only when selected with a selection marquee tool, such as the lasso tool, first - see attached screen recording. This leaves a very visible difference between the selected and moved and unmoved artwork, and is even visible at 100%, which is obviously a big no-no for client work. Not totally unrelated, the selection path also seems excessively jagged on screen in comparison to something like Photoshop. I often use the selection tool when colouring my work, but the edge is noticeably jagged, even when zoomed out to 100% as well. I initially thought this may just be the pixel preview, but the jagged edge is very present - see attached screen shot, and it's also very present in the screen recording video too while making the selection path. As a final side note, a Wand Selection tool in Designer's Pixel Persona would be SOOOO helpful. Anyway, I'm not sure if these are bugs, but any advice or workaround for these things will be greatly appreciated! Screen Recording 2019-05-10 at 09.03.56.mov
  19. Software version: Affinity Photo Beta 1.7.0.243. The Hue Blend mode in affinity is taking Saturation and Luminosity from bottom layer and Hue from Blend layer. Could anybody suggest is there any blend mode that retains Hue and Lightness from bottom layer and Hue from blend layer. View Screen Shots: Bottom Layer: HSL (300, 100, 50) Blend Layer: HSL (100, 100, 50) (Blend Mode Normal) Result with Blend mode Hue: HSL (100, 100, 30) Vs (What I want is (100, 100, 50) )
  20. Hi! So yeah, you saw the title... The issue is that I was being stupid and didn't read this part in this post: "Hey don't use Affinity Designer Customer Beta in your work, because you can't backward them to the regular Affinity Designer." or something like that. And since I didn't see that I was again stupid and began making a large project for my graphics design business. Now I can't export it to a PSD file and that's the only way I can send it over to my customer. (My project would take a long time to recreate, so please gimme any ideas) Is there ANY way to get back my files from Affinity Designer Customer Beta? I have tried so many things, but keeps on popping up with errors, and searching on Google ain't working either. PLEASE HELP!
  21. Some photoshop brushes work just fine but others seem to lose their propeties. I don't know if it is because they are not fully compatible.
  22. Help! My favorite tool in Designer broke and won’t work even after closing the app and reopening it. All the other tools work just fine, but the brush tool in the pixel workspace won’t do anything. Can someone help me as I don’t know if it is a bug or not?
  23. Hi all, I am brand new to Affinity Publisher beta. I've been using Microsoft Publisher for years but wanted to move away from it and explore something else. Affinity Publisher, although foreign, feels pretty good so far. I know it will take time to feel as comfortable with it as MS Publisher. Question 1: When I export my newsletter creation to a pdf, every text box used displays on the pdf with a blue border around it. Is there a way to make the textbox borders invisible or black? Question 2: Is there an easy way to have the date / volume and issue carry through from page to page. Auto-numbering of pages would be great too! I will be watching the long tutorial video on YouTube as well, but this will get me quickly on track for this week! Thanks, Gary
  24. Hi, 2 weeks ago I've bought brand new ipad pro and installed affinity designer and photo on the device. I've bought both affinity apps because I found the information that I can import abr files and all files are grey. I see this file on my Ipad but i can't choose this file!!! Is is just unclickable!! I'm realy mad because I've decided to buy an Ipad because I saw affinity software and right now i can't use any of my brushes. Even the simplest ones. Please for some advice! TEST.abr
  25. I have made a pixel layer from noise and adjustment layers and have rasterized a pixel layer, and still when I zoom in or out, the density of stars changes, and I have no idea what the export output will be as it is not consistent. I've attached the file to test out yourself and some images displaying the different zoom levels and one showing that it is just a pixel layer enabled Pixel_Whack.afphoto
