  1. Please add image trace it will make the affinity suite very awesome , adobe illustrator has image trace so it would be very cool if you could add the option
  2. Hi, I am totally new to Affinity Designer and graphic design in general. I want to know how to make the outline of a text transparent to there will appear to be a space between the text an other objects. I tried adding an outline, converting it to a shape by Expand Stroke, and then using Subtract. It did not work because it's the fill that became transparent. Kindly see the attached sample. I had no luck searching the forums for alternative steps. Thanks for the help.
  3. I have a freeformat logo (vector-based) and will produce a sticker from this. The producer of the sticker demands me to add an outline in 100% magenta and name that outline 'cutkontur' . The sticker will be cut along this line. I used Layer -> Layer Effects... -> Outline to add the outline. This works perfect, but I see no way on how to add a name to the outline. How can I name that outline? Affinity Designer 1.6.5.135, Win7 Enterprise x64
  4. I have a shape (Stroke + Fill), with Outer shadow (fx). Add Gradient overlay (fx), and Colour overlay (fx), .and Inside Outline (fx). Now I set Opacity or Blend mode for Outline. To my great surprise will not start to shine Color overlay, or Gradient overlay, or Shape (his Stroke and Fill), but Shadow! I expected the Shape stack with fx to look as follows, but using the Outline will probably cut everything under it, except for the shadow. Is this a bug, or is it an expected feature? Thank you Edit: Current implementation (object trimming) I understand. Outline is "line out of object". In order to achieve this in all circumstances (even when selecting Inside and Center alignment), the object must be trimmed. Then it is strange if the shadow is formed by the original object, but not by the trimmed. In any case, it would be advisable to point out this destructive behavior (object trimming) in help. Thank you
  5. Hi, Is there a way to outline / fill a stroke? Thanks.
  6. Hello, dear developers. First of all - I like your program, it is more comfortable than illustrator or Corel draw. But thing is - Designer doesn't have the required functionality to normally offset and expand strokes, while illustrator and Corel draw do. I wanted to design a logo with "luminescence" effect - like soft glow - by outlining, offsetting and expanding strokes. With illustrator I could do it, while in Affinity Designer I can't. I tried "outline" effects, but then I discovered that I just can't expand it. I probably could create something "resembling" to desirable effect, but that is not the solution. I didn't`t notice this instruments in 1.7 either. So please - add this functionality to 1.7 or 1.8 update - while it`s a small detail, but for some projects its crucial. And I`m not the only one asking about this - there are some related topics on this forum asking about the same. Aaaaaand - do something with your "expanding stroke" - it`s horrible! Although a bit better in 1.7 update, but still not appropriate! Many programs (illustrator, Inkscape, Corel Draw, even Sketch!) can do this much better! I`m using Affinity Designer 1.6.5 on Mac OS Mojave (also used on Sierra). Thanks for your work and cannot wait to see this functionality in update
  7. I want to use an artistic Brush to outline my text in Affinity Photo. How does it work?
  8. what i'm thinking is another slider on the stroke modal window that controls how much the stroke is offset. on closed curves it would read outwards on one side and inwards on the other, or something like that, and i'm not sure for open curves, but it would be leftwards along the normal vector when moved to the left and rightwards when moved to the right.
  9. Is there a way to use headings as an outline tool to organize long documents?
  10. Can someone tell me if this software already has the option "Outline" ( see the video) ? I worked with the "trial version" but was not. Thank you!
  11. i can not get rid of the purple outlines around the shapes in designer on the ipad. only zooming in and out removing them but only till i work again Thanks in advance
  12. Would it be possible to outline a font which is not available on your system but embedded in the PDF. Having the option of being able to outline if you want regardless. Kind Regards
  13. Using Affinity Photo trial 1.6.4.104. Edit : In Windows 7, Wacom Intuos Pro 4, XL. The problem: Specially with custom brushes, the outline ends up covering the area you are painting, when using medium or big size brushes (common for many painters, illustrators, even comic colorists, and 2D/3D texturing artists). Even the basic brush, round brush shape and outline (a brush which indeed is enough for high quality digital painting, with proper settings by the user, and expertise), is very productive to be able to disable it at options (due to some motion blur effect, and just for an outline's nature, it is too distracting). You can disable this in most applications (of course, I do not expect A. Photo to be like any other application. But is a common ground that this is more than desirable, as an optional setting ) and leave instead the existing crosshair, or even add options (not needed) as small cursor, big dot, triangle cursor, etc. Proposed solution : Quite some artists just completely disable the outline in other applications, and choose instead some sort of cursor (our current nice crosshair). We already have a good and efficient crosshair cursor. It is not too small and not too big, and visible enough, which is very important, too. So, just being able to disable the outline, in preferences, (completely fine if it would be not a default setting), it would perfectly do it. ( Together with the issue/feature request with the color selector-magnifier which I just posted, is the other thing that is actually stopping me from purchasing A.Photo (got Designer long ago) and actually probably moving all of my workflows, in each and every field, to Affinity Photo. I have been able to sort any other obstacle with this trial, already. ) Edit : It seems there was at least one other request about this, previous to mine. There are some differences, but there is important info about the matter that might help developers, in both threads, so, I am linking it here, as well, as could be useful for them, once arrived the moment : https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/52572-preferences-add option-to-removehide-brush-outline/
  14. When trying to add a shadow / outline or something from effects on to a layered or grouped item the outline lets say turns green instead of red. Why would this be? I can't for the life of me work it out. P.s. I am a newbie to Affinity products and the forum. Thank you Andrew Windsor. bowling1.afdesign
  15. Hello, I have been wondering and trying to get a constant Blur around the sharp edges of a photo. I found tutorials for Photoshop but I couldn't figure out how to apply that on Affinity Photo. It used to be that the live filter layers could be edited by creating a mask but that worked really bad to not anyway and I am wondering if there is a way to have the outlines of a photo extremely blurred, so that it fades away? Thanks.
  16. Is there a way to hide the outlined brush tip? I guess some people might like it, but for me it is totally disturbing, especially with complex brushes. The outline hides faint brushstrokes and makes it very hard to judge if they are correct, especially with large brushes, low opacity and short strokes. I prefer just a dot, or nothing, as I see the tip of the Wacom pen anyway.
  17. Hello, I am looking for a function to create a shape with muliple outlines(see attachment). Does AD has got a tool for this or do I have to do it manualy? Thanks in advance nod
  18. Hi guys, Can Affinity create wave like borders, or other styles of borders automatically? I attached an example, the bottom border is what I'm talking about. Thanks
  19. Hi guys, There has been a bit of a nasty bug, and I thought I posted it, but it seems that I forgot. Basically, if you draw a circle, give it a color (blue for example), and then apply a a stroke to it, let's say white, and align it on the inside, the FILL color will be slightly visible around the edges of the circle. Which is really mot that good This is pretty important, since right now we have to find workarounds, so it would be great if this would be fixed for the next Beta version. I also attached a file that shows exactly what I mean Cheers, Chris outline-test.afdesign
  20. Hello! I have been trying to add an outline on a selection but nothing appears. I make a square selection, then create a new pixel layer, then I’m adding an outline effect with the settings as shown on the screenshot below and nothing appears. I have tried anything, even reinstalling the app in case there was something wrong with it. The weird thing is that I had done it in the past and it had worked fine but it’s been more than a month now that I can understand what is wrong. On the screenshot you can see the settings and please let me know if I’m doing something wrong. (Ipad pro 12.9) Thanks!
  21. Is it possible to create a shape from an outline in Affinity Designer? For example if I have a straight line with a set stroke width of 12px which isn't a "closed shape" like it's needed for certain printing techniques: is there some way to create a closed shape from a line with stroke, in this simple case 2 points (line from A to B), to have a shape without outline, with 4 points and a width of 12px? Without doing that completely manually? Edit: Ok, forget it. Found the option in the layer settings via the upper menu. At first I looked in the context menu of the layer, which didn't help much.
  22. To reduce the number of vertices (in comparison with the Stroke to "expend stroke") For the save of the original bezier curves (in comparison with the Stroke to "expend stroke") Thanks For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndDoY_BUm5Q&feature=youtu.be&t=2m (02:00) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqHjU2hiWAo&feature=youtu.be&t=10m50s (10:50)
  23. I've was using Affinity Designer last night to create probably smaller graphics than what most are used with Affinity products.. 52x52 pixels. The issue that arises is that If I save a style that has a specific inner outline set in Effects I would guess that it doesn't change from what I set it to - to the next time I apply this style to a new shape layer? But, it does.. I wanted to specifically use 1.8px Inner Outline and save that as a style(which I have a question about too - that'll be a different thread) Instead what happens is that the Outline is now 1.3px - still Inner in it's appearance but the behaviour is not what I expect. Can it be trusted; meaning Affinity Designer or am I just a lost cause.
  24. Will Affinity Designer ever offer the possibility to Outline Strokes (not only for strokes made with the "Basic" set of vector brushes, but for any other vector brush, too) and / or the possibility to Trace an Image? This is what I miss most in Affinity Designer, compared to Illustrator. I can't imagine working with vectors without having these essential tools. ☹️ Just would like to know if there are any plans to make this and when. Thank you.
  25. I don't remember this before in previous versions so trying to understand if this is a bug or how to turn off, but there's a light red stroke or outline on my text.
