  1. Hi. I have a simple 10x10 area I want to fill with a 1x1 pattern without stretching or distorting the pattern. I have drawn the initial pattern in AD. I can rasterize it, but the fill tool insists on stretching it to make it fit instead of repeating the raster. I'd prefer to keep the pattern 'live', like a symbol, so I can still edit it after setting up the file. Should I aim to work with the source pattern as an asset? a source? a bitmap fill (which seems like the worst option)? Thanks folks. Dying here.
  2. Hope AD will provide vector based pattern | swatches. I like my fills sharp and crisp.

    free experimental brushes

    been playing around this afternoon with some different methods of creating custom brushes. Thought I'd share some of the results. this small group of 5 brushes will work in both affinity photo and Designer (Pixel Persona) There are a couple that might make interesting borders, and some that just make interesting grunge or painterly effects experimental Brushes.afbrushes
  4. Hi all, tady I started my new project www.downbg.com
  5. Hey everyone! I am working a lot on patterns (literally hundreds) that I want to repeat on both x and y later on. For doing so, it would be very useful to be able to offset and repeat (wrap) curves and groups using Affine and being able to access Affine in Designer. Right now, it only seems accessible in Photo and trying to Affine curves or groups will rasterize them. Best wishes, Shu

    Gradient and tiling patterns

    Whenever I try to use the gradient tool to apply a tiling pattern, this is what I get instead:
  7. Hi. I used Illustrator before for shoe drawing. I'm using Affinity Design now, If I load leather materials as JPG, how can I make it for pattern. And Is there live paint bucket tools as like Illustrator? And Warp tool? Thank you very much.
  8. I find it very tough in Affinity to apply simple patterns, espassely if you want to quickly swap or modify them. It would be nice if there was a "Pattern overlay" layer effect, where you could select an image, with a blend mode and scale, which will be repeated on the layer. As currently the only way to apply a pattern is to use a textured brush. Thank you!
  9. I it would be great to have a parametric replicator over or within shape or along shape using any layer as source. we would be able to change size and color of the included element by random or progressive scale etc.... Exemple of use Present Paper... or massive banners. Let me know if you have any easy way to achieve this.
  10. Hello everyone, I am a new user of affinity designer, i have 2 questions about patterns: 1. Is there a way to create a pattern as a fill color other than to create a separated file or a symbol and repeat it manually? 2. How to open/import ai files which include a path filled with a pattern. (When i open a ai file includes pattern fill, it seems it converts pattern to bitmap and pixelated which i dont want and i can't manipulate the pattern.) Thank you all.
  11. 89/5000 Hello, is among the plans to create brushes vector pattern? it would be very useful
  12. So I made this video for my weekly blog....and I thought you guys might get some value out of the downloadable template...I attached it here .....and the tutorial that actually shows you how to make it. J Downloadable Madala files.zip
  13. Can u produce a pattern along a curve like it works with text objects? Would be great if I get an answer.
  14. Hi everyone, I was asked if in Affinity i can get a comparable effect like the Pattern overlay in the Photoshop Layereffects. We use Embedded PDF files in Architectural Plans, and often a good way of improoving the Look is just to make a pattrn overlay in the Layereffects of Photohop, when replace the embedded pfd file.. is there any idea to do something comparable in Affinity Photo ?
  15. Hi, I need to create a design with a vector background pattern consisting of small dots. How do I make that with Affinity Designer? Cheers Vince
  16. I was very interested in this: http://tinyurl.com/ybd2jhgp But I wasn't sure it would work in Affinity Designer so I wrote to the creator and this is the answer I got: Unfortunately, I haven't converted this one to Affinity as it's pattern brush feature isn't accurate enough to make the brushes as good as I’d like. If they improve it in the future I'll definitely make an Affinity version. So is this something that is being worked on? Or is there something like these brushes out there that do work with Affinity Designer? Sig
  17. In this class, I’ll show you how to design a Victorian period-inspired monochromatic brick pattern. For those with a Skillshare Premium subscription, or who want to sign up, please use this link: http://skl.sh/2z5HyvL The Affinity Designer files I used can be downloaded from within the class. For those who don’t have a Skillshare subscription, here is free access to my class for the first 10 people to take this offer up, or the 8th of November, whichever comes first: http://skl.sh/2zzQNVv

    13 SVG bugs & 1 crash

    Hi again, as I was importing some of my SVGs, I noticed some slight issues with their appearance in Affinity. So, I did some testing and found out what was causing these issues. I've created a separate file for each bug (14 in total). It should become clear by following the instructions below. If not, just let me know! Disclaimer: Importing the first file will (most likely) make Affinity crash. Please save your work progress before trying! Instructions: 1. Open the attached files in a web browser 2. Now import them into Affinity (Photo or Designer) 3. Compare both versions closely Cheers! ------------------------------------------- Affinity Designer Version: 1.5.1.43 Affinity Photo Version: 1.5.1.54 Operating System: Windows 10 1_crash_when_colour_capitalised.svg 2_stroke_although_colour_not_set.svg 3_no_fill_when_colour_capitalised.svg 4_incorrect_gradients_when_gradientUnits_objectBoundingBox.svg 5_nested_svgs.svg 6_no_repetitive_gradients.svg 7_stroke_dasharray_wrong_direction_starting_point_array_too_short.svg 8_no_patterns.svg 9_incorrect_skewing.svg 10_no_drop_shadows.svg 11_no_blending.svg 12_close_path_and_moveToEnd(!).svg 13_no_masking.svg 14_no_markers.svg
  19. Hi everyone, i´ve been asked , if there´s a way to use the flood fill tool together with patterns, as you can do with photoshop, just filling in a repettitive pattern.. is this possible ? thanks
  20. Hello, I use Affinity Designer 1.5.5. I was creating a seamless pattern. But what irritating was there were tiny gaps between my pattern tiles. I arranged them using snapping. It also happened if I arranged it manually by incrementing the X or Y of the tiles. I attached the pattern that I am talking about. How can I get rid of this issue? And one other thing. Every time I create a perfect square artboard let's say 400px X 400px, and I start drawing on it. Once I export this particular artboard, the size in export menu can't be perfect square anymore like 400px X 400px. There must be one pixel or two more added mysteriously like 402px X 400px. Even if I just draw a really small thing in the middle of this artboard. The artboard would never be perfect square again. Is that normal?
  21. is there a way/feature to make a seamless pattern? like this video:
  22. I posted my first class on Skillshare yesterday. In this class I demonstrate how to use Affinity Designer to: - set up a geometric grid for laying out an Arts and Crafts style decorative pattern - vectorise and style the pattern, and - create a textured intensity brush. The grids, brush and class notes can also be downloaded from within the class. Here is the link: http://skl.sh/2tN12Xi You can use this link to sign up for two free months of Skillshare Premium and watch my class for free. The sign-up section is at the top of the linked page. I hope you find this class useful. This is also a great way to check out Skillshare's library of classes. Do you have a tutorial to share? With Skillshare you can turn your tutorials into classes. Cheers Chris
  23. Hey, I'm looking for a way to create patterns easily, but it seems a little complicated to step-and-repeat, then mask and mask again to create a pattern. And what if I create a bigger object that the pattern? Is there plans to make a similar tool like Illustrator, where you simply create one object and the tool show the pattern surrounding and how it comes together?
  24. Hey everyone, I'm quite new to Affinity Designer and have come across the following issue: ​ ​I'm trying to fill different shapes with patterns. Since I haven't been able to find any preset geometric fill patterns that ship with Affinity, nor a pattern fill feature, I've resorted to: 1. Select the shape 2. Activate the Fill Tool 3. Change Fill Type to Bitmap ​4. Use an image texture to fill the shape However, when I ​CTRL + C​ on one shape and then CTRL + SHIFT + V​ on another shape in order to copy that fill, with the same orientation and scale, it seems like the bitmap/texture then gets transformed to the orientation/size of the target shape. I attached a screenshot to demonstrate what happens when I copy the fill from the left shape to the right. ​How can I get the behaviour that I want, i.e. have the fill get transferred from shape A to shape B without changing the orientation/scale/shear of the fill texture? ​Also, is there a vector pattern fill in Affinity Designer that I may simply have overlooked? ​Thanks a lot
  25. With this Affinity Designer template you are able to easily create seamless repeating pattern with a nice preview inside the document. You can watch an introduction into the template on my YouTube channel. https://youtu.be/dj2t50BLyPg and here you can download the Affinity Designer Pattern Template. These are some samples which I have already created with the Template: Hopefully, Affinity Designer also supports real vector patterns one day. Keep on drawin' Norbert
