  1. Hi team, I'm fairly new to the app and really loving it so far. However I'm really stumped on this one! I cannot seem to be able to edit a photo that I had previously been editing, upon leaving and then returning to the photo in Affinity Photo for iPad! Nothing seems to work no matter what I try! I've even tried to add new layers; to no avail. I've made sure that all layers ARE unlocked and are editable. But to no avail. Would really appreciate some assistance on this one. Cheers, Andy.
  2. I'm fairly new to using Affinity Photo and I keep running into to this problem so I thought I would ask what I'm doing wrong. My file is a tiff file saved with layers, I'm using Mac OS 14 Mojave. I have tried saving both with the keyboard shortcut command S as well as going to the file drop down menu and choosing Save. The problem I continually seem to have is after I save I will keyboard shortcut command W to close (I have not done any additional work to the image) after I do a Save and I get stuck in a loop of having a new dialog box appear telling me there have been changes do I want to Save, Don't Save, or Cancel. I Save, try and close the file and that dialog box pops back up. Any insights what I am doing wrong? thanks, jeff
  3. Hi all, Would it be possible to add support for the Flood Fill Tool and Flood Select Tool to read all the layers? Cheers, Juan

    Can't find layers panel?

    I use multiple monitors at work, so I am thinking this might be the cause? My layers panel has disappeared. I don't know where it is or how to get it back. Can someone help? Am I missing something obvious? When I right click on an item and click on "Find in Layers Panel" nothing happens. Really love using this trial and am probably going to purchase. But I gotta know why it's doing this. Thanks!!
  5. Hello ! I noticed a bug that (seemingly) only happens when, instead of opening a file from my drive, I copy an image from the web then create a new file and paste it as a layer : when I want to isolate a part of that layer, I make a selection around that part, then either cut that selection to copy it to another layer or invert the selection and delete the rest. But here, in both cases, the whole layer gets cut or deleted, not taking my selection into account. I tried to do this through keyboard shortcuts and through the Edit menu, to the same result. I also noticed that copying and pasting a selection also copies and pastes the whole layer.
  6. How to drag & drop a layer text or image one file to another file like photoshop. please given me a proper way.
  7. Hi! I am loving affinity designer in comparison to ai...however, there is something so easy that I can't figure out for the life of me! I have a doc/file that has many objects and each has a lot of layers. These layers aren't ordered in groups; therefore, I need to find a select group of layers among the many. I know that I need to click the Shift and have the multilayer button active and " keep clicking through the all the layers to select them"... the problem is that some of the layers have tiny object and I can't get the cursor to acknowledge through the mess of affinity's blue lines (the ones showing that you've selected something). The bottom line...I am hoping that there is a way to just use a marque, a selection brush, or whatever to just selection the object in one motion. When I've tried to do this is puts the marching ants, but none of the coordinating layers are high lighted. I would be most grateful for any advice! Bernie
  8. Hey there, I'm having a problem with those gaps/lines/edges of pixel layers (affinity.png) I made this sample file: test.afphoto This is what I have done, step by step: 1. Created a layer 2. Filled it with black 3. Resized canvas - 4 times of the original size 4. Duplicated the all-black layer 15 times 5. Snapped all layers side by side 6. Added a red background (just to show the problem) And now the problems: 1. Affinty Photo shows the gaps (having the color of the backgorund, white when no background, here - red) between the layers when the zoom is less than 100%, above 100% gaps disappear (affinity.png) 2. When exported on it's original size - there are no gaps (red lines) (height: 6000 - testh6000.jpg) but when exported on smaller size - gaps appear (height: 4000 - testh4000.jpg) Is there a bug or I'm doing something wrong? I would really appriciate a hint how to get rid of these lines both from exported files and from screen. I could probably resize the original and then export it, but I'm not sure if it works always. I was testing it few times, with different resamplers but haven't done any notes. Just that Nearest Neighbour resampler helps with this problem more often than other resamplers affinity.png I'm using Affinity Photo 1.6.5.123 and was testing it on Affinity Photo Customer Beta 1.7.0.258 and beta behaves the same. test.afphoto testh4000.jpg testh6000.jpg:
  9. Is there a way to merge multiple layers into one layer? Thanks
  10. I have a hexagonal pattern svg I'm using, and I want to find the exact of hexagons I'm selecting, so I was wondering if there was a way to do that than just counting them manually. Each hexagon has their own layer.
  11. I'm using the trial version right now as I want to try it out before purchasing, but I noticed today on Affinity Photo that Inverting a selection and then trying to delete anything (via the delete button) deletes the whole layer instead of the intended function (just deleting what is selected). This feature "works" when I manually delete the new selection via the Eraser, but I know that's not supposed to be the end all, be all.
  12. A useful addition to the Filter > Distort > Equations would be to have access to more than one layer. This would allow me to apply a function to the target layer based on what is in the second layer. It could be used for applying textures similar to displacement map. Obviously t would depend on the function being able to utilize the value of a pixel in the secondary layer. I see in a recent post that Affinity are working on a Macro Persona. I can'wait, but I won'hold my breath! John
  13. Just as I was making the post the images came back. You can see how in one of the images the boxes are blank and then the birds came back in the other one.
  14. Hello all, whenever I create a new file and do my designs, layerings and groupings of objects everything is fine. Then I save the file in afdesign or pdf (for printing) format. So far so good. But every time me or any third party re-opens the file -> every layer and every grouping disappears. That means that every little dot - simply every detail is in one layer ungrouped. I am really desperate about that because it is simply not possible to work that way and I cannot find the mistake I am making. Can anybody help me by giving me an advice?? Thank you sooooo much in advance for your reply and support!! cheers Sisa
  15. Hello, can someone explain me how ot reveal the layers palette please ? I just do not see it and do not find how to show it aside an image ! Even when you add 2 images one over the other, you cannot see the layers !!! This is just insane ! I have lost 30mn of my time on that matter ! Add the option: Reveal layers palette under the voice menu and add it from the right click ! Please HELP !!
  16. Hi, I've imported a purchased EPS file to AP and it comes in as a layered file with the first layer being an identical of the second layer which is titled 'image.' If I flatten the image in order to edit it (I need to rearrange objects within the graphic by cutting and pasting, erasing, etc.) it becomes rasterized and loses definition. If I try and select just a portion of the graphic with the lasso tool to move it AP moves the whole graphic. How can I edit this graphic without rasterizing it? Thank you!
  17. Hi there, Just wonderin, is there a way to remove an adjustment from a Layer? Can't find a way :( I know I can turn it off but is there a way to delete it? Thanks, Pete
  18. Hey guys, I am a relatively inexperienced user and am looking for some advice on how to achieve an effect. So I want to create a gradient overlay from the top of my document to the bottom to affect several layers however these layers need to be at different depths. The couple of ways I know of to do this don't really feel like they fit: 1. Using the Gradient Overlay effect Recreating the effect each time I want to apply it to a new object is obviously super time consuming Gradient is scaled based on the size of the object where I want it to apply across the whole document. 2. Creating a Gradient Object and using blending to apply it to other layers Doesn't respect which layers it should be applied to so can't render the visual hierarchy in the order that I want for overlapping elements. 3. Applying the gradient as a mask layer Can't move elements without repositioning the mask layer. Duplicating the mask layer for each element I want this effect applied to seems inefficient. Below is an example of the kind of effect I want to achieve (Although I will want more directly overlapping elements that intersect each other): Does anyone have any ideas on the best way to achieve this?
  19. This is my first post I'm new to this forum. Ive tried and looked for hours to find out how to save all my adjustment layers to Preset(s). From my understanding you have to save each layer and label it. For example, adjusting and then saving the Vibrance as a preset and naming it. After saving each layer preset on my finished picture and labeling them, I opened up another photo, which I want to have the exact same adjustments. I clicked on all the custom layer adjustment presets I just made but the picture doesn't turn out the same in the end? Even though when I click on each preset (in the new photo that I want to look like the previous) it says its tweaked the same as the one I saved, but the photo still looks drastically different? Do all NOT adjustments transfer over? Am I doing something wrong? Is there a better way to do this? (and im not talking about the background people photoshopped out, im aware of that) THANK YOU for reading this, this is so frustrating and it makes me want to switch back to Lightroom. (the picture without people is the look i want, the picture with people is what happens when i click on all the saved presets for the finished picture)
  20. It would be very nice if you could collapse all layers at once in the layers panel. Layers become very difficult to work with when you have many of them since selecting objects expands the parent layer, so you have to scroll back up and manually collapse them yourself. Perhaps you could have it so that layers are only expanded for as long as the item within it is selected? That way, after deselecting an object, the layer expansion goes back to its previous state, which is ether expanded or collapsed. Am I making any sense?
  21. One of the most useful features I use in Photoshop is Layer comps. As a Video Producer, often title graphics will be designed, by a graphic designer as part of the brand. Layer comps gives the opportunity to isolate the layers, from the supplied psd and with the additional script "layer comps to files" run out a set of files to one location with one click. These files can then be composited to produce an animated title.
  22. Hello, I am looking for a way to automate creating of a collage for product photography for several product items. I would have a set of images for each product and I would like to place and resize them into predefined slots of the final collage then export it as a single tiff/jpeg (a rough example is attached). Ideally, there would be a macro that would allow me to select the 5 files in specific order, resize, place in predefined slots on the canvas, apply some border effects and export. I played with the macro functionality, but there does not seem to be a way to open new files or copy/paste from already open files in specific order into the main "template" document. Any thoughts/help would be appreciated. Thanks Tomas
  23. Have the topic of introducing a merge layer function been discussed or considered in an upcoming update?
  24. I'm a new-ish Affinity Designer user, and I love it! But I need help sorting out some mysteries, as described below. I've attached my file, "house plat 1st floor". On my house plan, there's an odd section in the upper outline, in the heavier line above and to the right of the label "David's kitchen". What's going on? I tried a couple things to fix it, but was unsuccessful. In some places the heavier outline is straight, and in others it's more "freehand" looking. I'm gradually getting more control over drawing lines, but are there any tips on how to always have straight lines when you want them? And finally... Since the building is bilaterally symmetrical, I drew the rooms on the right side. Then I copied the right side, pasted, flipped the pasted image, and lined it up to match the right side. Voila! Rooms now appear on the left side also. But now I'm getting odd behavior because half of the artboard seems to have cloned itself, which I didn't expect. Is there any way to fix this? I was assuming the artboard was just the workspace, but maybe it's something else? That's enough for now. TIA for any advice. [Note: I worked on this file in the Affinity Designer 1.7 customer beta. I posted these questions here b/c I don't think they're beta-related, but feel free to move the post if I'm mistaken.] house plat 1st floor.afdesign
  25. Complicated illustrations that have a lot of shapes on a particular layer can take a bit of time to scroll through. Opening multiple layers can result in even more scrolling which, depending on how much memory/processing power your iPad has available, can slow things down sometimes. I’d like to suggest a button/control for the Layers Studio that would collapse all open layers/groups, giving users a place to start over when searching through the parts of a document. Also, how about a control, possibly for the contextual menu at the bottom of the screen, that would give users the option to “show object in Layers”. It would be a shortcut that would instantly open the Layers Studio and jump to the shape/group selected, once again minimizing the scrolling search for a particular item.
