  1. At the beginning, I apologize for my English Bad CMYK components the Layer Effect/Outer Shadow in PDF export from AD. Document setup is CMYK colour format. The result does not match the settings in the effect palette. You can see on the attached screens. After rasterizing PDF document in Photoshop you can see the problem. The last screen shows the correct condition after flattening the shadow and background before export to PDF from AD.
  2. In the desktop version of Affinity Designer, when you apply an ‘Outline’ layer effect with a gradient fill you have full control over the opacity of that fill. I can’t see a way to vary the opacity of the ‘Outline’ fill in Affinity Photo for iPad. Is it possible, and if so, how?
  3. I have a very simple layer effect - a 4 pixel outline - that I would like to apply to multiple individual layers. Is there a workflow to save a layer effect so that it can be applied over and over again? I thought it might be a style, but I can't seem to save the layer effect as a style. And I don't see anything that allows me to copy / paste a layer effect. Thank you.
  4. Is there any way (in Designer or Photo) to copy the Layer Effects of one layer and apply them to another layer (so you can have precisely the same settings)? I used to do this in Photoshop by command-dragging the effect onto another layer (I think it was command ... some modifier anyway!). Many thanks :-) (Edit: I like the fact you can have the Layer Effects panel open and then select different layers and the panel updates to show that layer's settings. That helps a bit with entering the same values on another layer.)
  5. Now if I want to view a layer with/without layer effects, I enable/disable them one at a time. A global layer effect switch for each layer is time saving. Here is how Photoshop does. For reference. Affinity Designer Windows 7 64 bit
  6. It seems that the behavior of the 3D layer effect is broken, or at least that it has changed, in 1.5.3 compared to 1.5.1 and earlier--this is significantly distorting much of my artwork. I've attached a simple AD file (1 inch white circle with default 3D layer effect, except azimuth 0 and elevation 90), along with an export of this document using AD 1.5.1 and 1.5.3. It appears that 1.5.3 is not treating the parameters the same, and is wrong compared to 1.5.1. 3dTest.afdesign
  7. Hi, I was missing an obvious option to remove a layer fx, for example by: 1. context menu (RMB) 2. an entry in menu layers (plus shortcut) 3. via drag 'n drop (like in Adobe Phoooooop) Up to now, I had seen me forced to click on the fx icon and then deselect all used fx (in worst case all 10) to get rid of the fx. Together with all the mouse movements too much clicks and precise mouse work. WORKAROUND (I just found today): w1. CMD+C on an element with no layer fx (and no style) w2. CTRL+CMD+V to paste the fx So now this feature request can be seen as low-prio/cosmetic :) Keep continue working on this great piece of software, Stefan. see also: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/24663-toggle-layer-fx-onoff/
  8. Hi, it would be great to have the same functionality for show/hide layer effect by using the modifier SHIFT as it is already implemented for layer masks Thanks in advance, :) Stefan.
  9. Hi, Odd question: when I first open Affinity, and click the little gear in Layer Effects (like to put a gradient on text), the dialogue box flashes then disappears. My dock says it's an open window, but nothing happens when I click that, and I can't find or access it anywhere. Each time I quit and reopen, I might get to use it once, then it disappears again. It was working fine earlier. Any ideas? Thank you, Nicole
  10. For efficient working with layers, it would be really great to be able to copy a layer effect and paste it to another layer
