  1. Searching the help did not produce any result. How do I draw for example a 12-leaf-daisy by only drawing one leaf and than duplicate/rotate it along a circular path? Is there any built in function like "actions" or "automatic repeat by angle and path"

    Print multiple

    Since getting a new pc running Windows 10 I had to duno Photoshop 5 and buy x8. On v5, to print multiple pics on one page was simple. Using the one image already in use, select file, print multiple then slot the multiple layout you want, slot the image in the with one click load up more picks and slide each one onto the page and print. easypeasy. In x8, having loaded print studio and selected a multiple print layout (but not my favourite 3x2 eight to a page) when I slide a pic onto the page every time I try to fit it into a slot or rotate it I get a dialogue box telling me to insert a number. But what number and where??? Now all the other buttons are dead and I can't get rid of the damn dialoge box Is it x8 or my age (73) or that a stroke killed me and the right side of my brain
  3. Lets say I want to develop 5 RAW files. They require all the same develop settings like white balance, curve adjustment, pre sharpening and lens corrections, to mention just a few. Is there an easy way or do I have to make 4 separate presets in the Basic, Tones, Detail and Lens tab?
  4. Unfortunately, there is no "function" to save the studio. (If so, please prove me wrong). That does not mean you can't save it manually, and even keep multiple versions of it to suit your different workspaces. As a bonus or drawback, some of your preferences will also be saved or recalled by the same process. To save your Studio configuration (MAC) The following allows you to keep a safe copy of your studio configuration, including the Toolbar and other preferences (I did not know which ones at this point) Quit Affinity Designer From the finder top drop-down menu, select GO and press [option] — [shift] or [^control] on some systems. A new item called Library should appear in the menu. Click it. Navigate to this location : Macintosh HD/Users/YourUserNameHere/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner/Data/Library/Preferences Copy the file com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner to a safe location of your choice. I recommend a cloud base storage, so you can get it back on a new or different system at anytimel. Go back to work with peace of mind, your Studio configuration is now safe. To recall the Studio If the studio go astray, or the toolbar plays hide and seek on you: Quit Affinity Designer Copy back com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner to its original location (From where you saved it above) — Replace the existing files Note that the studio will come back the exact same way you had it at the time you copied the file for the first time. Changes you made between the two procedures will be lost. Forever. I have not tested it yet, but I'm sure that some other preference settings will be affected as well, I just don't know to what extent. Multiple Studios: You can make multiple Studio arrangements and save them independently. Just copy com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner to different locations. Be sure to label them properly, so you remember what they are. Very useful on a laptop that uses an external monitor that is not always connected. If you're comfortable with MacOS Automator, you can even create series of app/scripts to save or restore your Studio configuration(s) automatically. Not the smoothest process and I wish there was a prebuilt function for that… But until it does, or someone proves me wrong, it's a workaround. Enjoy!
  5. Is there a way to edit multiple artboards at the same time? I need to resize a pdf document for all pages. Each page is an artboard. When I click on multiple artboards, it gives a combined size, which is hard for resizing. Instead of clicking multiple artboards of 2x4 and it displaying 4.5x4...can I click multiple artboards and resize each to be 4x8?
  6. Hello friends, I’m a total newbee. I’m just wondering if there is a way to select multiple areas of a layer at one time. For example, I would like to create a selection rectangle around a portion of the image, and then in another location in the same layer select another portion. Then I could copy both into a new layer at the same time. Photoshop also has the ability to create multiple rectangles and merge the selections or subtract from them. I tried holding down COMMAND or SHIFT on my keyboard without result. Right now I am actually using the flood selection tool (magic wand) in order to select red letters of a word. I would like to be able to select all of the letters, then do a copy and paste it into the new layer. I know there are other ways of doing this (like selecting a color tone) but if I just want to do multiple selects, how would I do so? Any ideas? Thank you! Have a great day!! - Rich Using iPad Pro 2nd Gen 12.9”

  8. Is there a way to export all artboards as pngs...without having to save each one at a time?
  9. To round individual corners one need only untick "Single radius" in the info bar at the top of the window. But how do we select 2 or 3 corners and round them at the same time (to be the same radius)? This can be easily done in Illustrator. Thank you.
  10. Hey there, what I'm missing so far regarding the swatches panel: - Easy renaming workflow of swatches with F2 and Tab, and to go further: something like Renamy would be even more awesome - Select and delete/copy multiple swatches. At least it should be possible to click/select and delete via DEL-key to easliy clear up the swatches - "remove unused colors"-option to quickly clean up a palette - usecase would be mostly the the document-related palettes - Convert already added swatches to Global/Spot-Colors - Ability to easily set spot-color-name the same as swatch-name and vice versa (without copy-paste, perhaps with a checkbox in the settings of each swatch) - Missing a direct "Add current color to palette as Spot Color" very much! - The to "Add current color to palette [...]"-Icons are not very distinctive. I would've added at least a big triangle in the left bottom corner of the button regarding the "add as global color" option to suit the appearance of those color in the swatch-list/grid below - Setting/checkbox/action to add swatches via "create Palette from document/image" directly as Global/Spot-colors. - Indicator to see in which Colormode the color originally was created and then have the ability to quickly switch color from RGB to CMYK-Mode and vice versa (perhaps even be able to determine the rendering/conversion while doing so) Greetings, Johannes.
  11. AP keeps proportions locked as long as you scale only one layer (using the handles). Pressing shift unlocks the constraint. Fine so far. As soon as you selct more than one layer, the behavior is inverted. You have to press shift to keep the proportions. Can't be intended, is it?
  12. Hello Guys, Well i have been using AD for my UI design projects and i am enjoying it so far. Some of you guys may know that there are multiple devices with multiple screen sizes. Multiple resolutions which doesn't scale up or down proportionally due to difference in aspect ratio. So how do you guys start the design? 1. Do you create an artboard with smallest version then scale up or other way around? 2. How do you export the assets with AD? (By export i meant efficient way to export multiple size) 3. How do you deal with different aspect ratio? I know that AD has good export tools where i can choose 1x, 2x for export but the aspect ratio for all screens are not same. I started a design for Iphone 5 retina display. It has an aspect ratio of 16:9. So i can use 1x, 2x asset features to scale up or down. 4. But what about android with ratio 16:10 for some device? My strategy was to design for different ratio, starting with smallest device then scale up asset during export. 5. Is this an efficient way or do you have better way? Note this question is not directly related to AD but the question general. But as i am using AD export feature so i am asking here to know if there is some efficient way that i didn't figure out.
  13. It would be great if we could import multiple (svg/eps/pdf/ai/png/jpg/gif/etc) files into the assets panel.
  14. Is it possible to close all open documents with a single click without closing the app? In Photoshop you can right click on the tab of any of the open documents and then choose "close all". This closes all open documents but keeps Photoshop open for futher work. I can't seem to do this in Photo, is it possible?
  15. I'm a complete novice with Affinity Photo, but I've not been able to see an obvious answer to my question, which is this. I've opened 6 or so .jpg files and edited them. They are listed as tabs above the working window. I now want to save them all as .afphoto files (a sort of "Save All As" action). This is a batch job, and I have looked at the use of the New Batch Job command. However, when I use this, and look at the Sources/Add window, this opens to a folder on disk, which does contain the photos I already have open and have edited, but also some others. How do I save all the files I currently have up on screen and which I've edited, as a single action rather than saving them one by one? In effect, how can I batch my edited files from the screen, into a batch process and then to disk, without looking at folders on disk.
  16. Hello fellows, I've received the email to buy affinity 1.5. I'm really excited about this program, but I need to make a question, about one missing feature. Will affinity photo feature a Sync option, as simple as Lightroom? I have multiple photos taken in the same shot, and I simply can't color correct them one by one. I only need this answer to buy affinity photo. best regards
  17. Hello! I would like to get to know if I can use affinity designer and/ or photo on multiple devices? I currently have designer on my macbook and planning to buy photo but would like to use it also on iPad when it will become available. Is it possible to log in with the same email via app store? Thank you! Marcela
  18. I know this question will be responded to with workarounds, but anyway. When I create an object the top toolbar shows FILL and STROKE. BUT when TWO or MORE objects are selected both these styling options are not present on the toolbar. Please can these be present when multiple objects are selected so fills and strokes can be applied quickly. Thank you.
  19. You can try these steps from my file 1. On the 'Lock Children' mode 2. Select multiple boxes 3. Try to rescale it 4. Undo (Ctrl+Z) 5. The bug like my screenshot will show *The same bug happened to previous version Artboard that you have been fixed. Cheers. test_multipleTransform.afdesign
  20. Given a circle C and a series of concentric squares A1, A2 etc, I would like C to cut across A1...An right down the middle and apply a subtraction on all of them. If I select all of them and try to do it wholesale, it applies as if A3-(A2-A1) etc, when what I really want is (C-A1) U (C-A2) etc. I have attached pictures of the setup and what I actually want. When I apply a grouped subtraction, everything gets deleted, obviously. Is there a simple way of doing this? Thank you, craftybones
  21. Hi folks, How can I simply do this? GradientTool&Mask.mov It's an almost everytime needs for me when advance editing a photo :( Am I missing something? Thanks for your help.
  22. I can reproduciple kill v1.5.0.7 when I open multiple PDF files (2 are enough) quickly. Edit: Even if I do it slowly it seems to crash all the time. Reproduce: simply use the menu --> file --> Open --> select PDF-1 confirm default options with OK quick do the same again for PDF-2 pdf-sample-1.pdf pdf-sample-2.pdf pdf-sample-3.pdf
  23. Hi. I just started to explore the beta and already enjoyed it, it seems to have great potential. And it's the first program that has a bit of the intuitive usability I loved so much in Ulead PhotoImpact! It's still a shame that Corel stopped development. I already found the "Styles" in Affinity Designer and it currently seems to have some limited attributes one can define as a style. But only single effects. From the roadmap I read that they might get improved in future? -Text features including Text Styles, Bullets and Numbering -Multiple Effects/Fills/Strokes per shape Will this make it possible to have an Style- and Effectslibrary like in PhotoImpact? In PI one can even right every style and modify all values and use bumpmaps etc. I have attached a pdf-file with some examples and screenshots of the possibilites. It's still possible to donwload a trial (~170MB) for Ulead PhotoImpact X3, but there are not all of those styles included. I don't expect it to be possible to directly use / import those Ulead-Styles? upi.pdf
  24. I'm new to Affinity and like what I see. This may be a dumb question, but being used to Aperture and then Photos, I could import a card full of images and then work on them one at a time. I have tried selecting multiple images and it just never finishes. I have only been able to do one at a time. Running V1.4.1 Appreciate any help or direction on this. Not successful searching forums and the help files. Thanks, :)
  25. I created about 100 icons - many have several vector layers including objects with outlines and fill. I want to be able to create multiple color combinations. For example, let's say I have 200 layers with combinations of blue and grey. I want to change the blue to red, or the grey to black. Is there a way to change the color of all layers in one shot? I flattened the layers and used the replace color with selection. That seemed to work, but since the layers were converted, when I changed the color the edges were not smooth. Any thoughts?
