  1. To reproduce: 1. Draw a few small circles inside each other. The smaller they are the more noticeable the problem becomes. 2. Add outlines. 3. Convert outlines to curves. See the attached screenshot.
  2. Hi, in 'Designer' is there any way to convert text to outlines (paths)? It's a function that I've use all the time in Illustrator & I'm praying it can be done in AD. Essentially I want to be able to edit each character as a path, so I can customise them.
  3. Hi, I'm new to affinity designer although I have been using affinity photo for a while. I'm needing to convert some type to outlines. Bit confused- is converting to 'curves' the same as converting to outlines and how do I do it? Thanks!
  4. Hi! How I am supposed to cut outlines? I've created a Polygon picture and want to fill some triangles as shadow parts with lines. I now need to cut these lines. Please have a look at the attached image. The pink marked parts should be removed for example. Thank you!
  5. Is there a way to "Create Outlines" on text in Affinty? I'm new to Affinity Designer and have been using Illustrator for many years and while the interface on this is really good, it seems to be missing a crucial component that is required when preparing to send my work for output. My instructions are to: Embed/outline the fonts: When saving your file as a PDF, choose the option to embed the fonts. Even better send us a version of the file with all fonts outlined. However, despite having the "Embed fonts" checked off in the "Advanced" tax that appears when saving as a PDF, apparently that is not enough. I have just wasted a load of money on work that did not come out correctly. In particular, everywhere I have used a letter with a French accent aigu (É) the letter has come out incorrectly sized and pressed up against it's neighbour. How do I rectify this for my next output?
  6. Hi, in the AD BETA all elements/objects have a pinkish outline around them with "No Stroke" selected, just a gradient fill in what I'm working on(5 objects/elements). When the project opens it's fine but once the element is selected the outlines stay Is this the same issue I found here This is all I could find on it in the forums, it doesn't happen in 1.6.5. but in the linked post it says that it isn't new to this beta. Very frustrating. I understand it's BETA. Cheers
  7. I'm currently test driving all of the Affinity products in hopes of leaving Adobe's Creative Cloud, but am coming up just a little short on some key tool necessities. The biggest hole I can see is the ability to distort or free transform vector nodes, whole objects or outlined text (curves). This is a tutorial on creating 'curved' text using 'free transform' tools in Illustrator from 2000: http://www.balloontales.com/curved-type/ Or selective scaling when nodes are selected. Here's an example of the function; keep in mind this isn't about WHAT is being created, it's the 'how'. http://www.balloontales.com/tv-shape-balloon/ Just added functionality to node/vector manipulation and I can then say goodbye to Adobe Illustrator. If these functions already exist, can someone point the way to any related tutorials? Thanks! Good stuff so far; just need a few more tools to be GREAT stuff. G.
  8. I am new to Affinity Designer and have a question about something I am trying to achieve in the program. I am uploading a screenshot of what I'm trying to do and have a question about - which is trim the uneven edges of an object or outlined font glyph using another shape - a circle - so that the glyphs perimeter will be refined and no longer imperfect. Please view the screenshot for more detailed information. Thank You.
  9. Hi there, Would anybody else find it useful to have a key command to hide all vector outlines & nodes (& bounding boxes too) without deselecting the item, nor changing tools? It's easier to judge your final result without the distraction of the "back-room mechanics" on top of your stroke. I remember using that kind of Hide command back in Adobe days. Just pressing Spacebar for a momentary Hand tool _almost_ does the trick. But not if you're adjusting the item's stroke or brush or layer fx properties in a dialog – then Spacebar doesn't work. So you have to judge your adjustments with the nodes & outlines obscuring your edges (with Pen or Node tool selected, at least). And if you switch to a different tool that hides outlines & bounding box, then your pen or node tool parameter ribbon goes away. All these issues would be resolved with an additional View ->View Mode: Artwork/Result Only. Thanks in advance for considering it!
  10. 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.
  11. I have some photographs that I would like to delete all the colours and just leave edges to create a Colouring Book effect so I can can print them for my wife to paint. I have searched to see if I can work this out but to no avail. I am a new user to Photo so please tell me if I have missed a tutorial or method?
  12. Ok, I watched a bunch of videos and then messed with the assets and artboards for a while. But I have restarted the program twice since then and now I have the most irritating problem yet! What is making these purple outlines on everything? They are not selected, I did not use that color. It is very hard for me to see what my design really looks like. And why is it suddenly defaulting to this font? It never used to. I must have changed something somewhere but I can't figure out what I did. this is a new design. It did it on the last one I made this morning too. It would even put the purple outline around just parts (curves) in the design and around all the text. it is driving me nuts.
  13. Hi, I was trying to create a shape by overlapping a circle shape with another circle shape (the 2nd circle was only the stroke and with no fill) when I tried to crop (subtract) the first circle with the 2nd circle the program cut the shape as if there 2nd circle had a fill and ignoring it was only the stroke (see attached). I had to convert the circle in to a donut to perform this. Thanks
  14. Hi all, Just a small tutorial: To convert a curve to it's outlines, do the following: 1. Klick on the curve. 2. Set the thickness you desire. 3. In Menu LAYER klick on Expand Stroke. Done.
  15. Hi all, I got a strange behaviour while working on multiple compounds shape. If I click on one of the stacked compounds on layer panel it starts to reveal its own shape. If you clone it they suddenly disappear. Anyone experienced something like that? It's really annoying because while you're working on multiples boolean operation you can't understand if done or not. The first image shows what happen after clicking on a stacked shape. The second image shows how it should appear (or duplicating the wrong one) Thank you so much
  16. Hello guys, i'm not an expert of those kind of programs and i'm not even an english speaker, so i apologize for the poor explanation of my question. I would like to use Affinity (Photo or Designer doesn't matter, i got both) to draw a contour around an image that i select with the selection brush (or other tools, idk) to obtain an effect similar to the attached image (i mean the white line around the two guys that clearly replicate and emphasize the selection). Is it possible?
  17. Thank you Affinity team for your two great apps (for now, can't wait for publisher)! I design sewing patterns and do some fashion flats illustration and would love to be able to complete my full workflow in Affinity Designer. To do so I need a line tool were I could import a specific measurement and have the line created to those specifications. It would also be great to be able to measure curves and the perimeter of shapes. Having units like mm, cm and inches would be awesome. There is a plugin for illustrator called Vector Scribe that a lot of sewing desgners use. If this feature becomes available I promise to spread the word amongst the fashion design community. I know a bunch of us can't wait to say goodbye to Adobe. I like what I see in Affinity. Can't wait for Artboards to become available.
  18. If I open a AI eps file that still has editable text, in Designer it converts the text to outlines. Will this be fixed in a future update?
  19. Hi friends, As I have writen before, I am not able to blurr the shrinked outline of a selcted image, applying the blurring effect. I do not give up.l I have tried a new way.....and that is using the blurring brush on the outside of the previously, shrinked selection. The effect that I have got is the same, though seems to be a longer action doing it, the brush does affect only in the way that I wish as prime goal, Meanwhile...the developpers can see if what I am in need can be worked out, I must day that I keep on working with the app, being now a proud customer of it, Thanks a lot. You are a good team. Rosa.
  20. Hi friends, Now that I have purchased the Affiniy Photo Inhad dreamed that this one of my former questions would be answered by the working of the app. ut I am desappointed for is not. I am longing to get the selection outline being softened by a slight blurring, but as much as I repeat the action, select-shrink-invert selection-apply blurring....the result is that the blurring does affect the whole shape and. not the outline that is outside of the "marching ants" I have followed a moderator's instructions or tips and the hing does happen again and again, Can anyone have tried to do this action and succeed? I would appreciiate, again a bit of. help in this, Is important for my conpositions and though I coulld refine the outlines with Photoshop...mmmm....the thing is to get ride of it as much as possible...you see. Thank you so much in advance. Rosa
  21. Hi I posted the same question before and I'm not too sure if I'm going the right direction... Any steps after this or advise will help a lot. I also don't know how to get rid of the selection brush lines after using it to color certain part of the drawing.... NEW-MERMAID OUTLINE.afdesign

    Illu 3, RC-1. 'MOUSE TV'

    Started as a quicksketch with the 1st Beta, now finished it. Shortly before I got it ready I saw the POP-Flowers showed a strange gritty effect at the inner side of the outline (before they were crisp). The new tapered vector brushes still tend to behave funny ;) When changing the linecolor of an object using the group-effect and hitting UnDo the flying menus greyed out again. Nothing lost, AD is a real workhorse )))
  23. Since it is rather difficult to impossible to see white objects on white paper, is there a way to view the vector lines in an outline mode?
