  1. I just bought a AF Designer MS Store version for my Surface Book. I have tested the brush with pressure, it doesn't work. Do I need to configure anything or it should just work? Thank you in advance. Johnny
  2. Designer 1.6.1.93 Surface Pen right click doesn't work at all, so I have no way to call right click menu with the pen. It slows down everything. Touches are still equal to pen strokes, this is NOT right, please make the app distinguish them from pen strokes, cause each touch paints things and it destroys the experience. Moreover touch can add more functionality by performing operations of for example Move/select tool while you're actually using any other mode, more convenient, more functional, isn't it? Thank you
  3. Hi I would find it really helpful to be able to draw lines and circles that are tangent to either 1 or 2 existing circles. I have a link here that shows what I am talking about - it is a program called AutoCAD https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=autocad+snap+to+tangent&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b&gfe_rd=cr&dcr=0&ei=UpkJWsC7CebG8Aft1I-oAg#gfe_rd=cr&kpvalbx=1 Thanks Rob
  4. Hello, Is possible to set a real 1px of stroke width with no antialiasing? Thank you!
  5. Hi, new here and just checking out the trial of Affinity Photo 1.5.2.69 (Test). On my Surface 4 Pro with Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, several key parts of the UI won't respond to touch and pen input: Selecting menu items is finicky, but works eventually most of the time Selecting variants of tools from their drop downs (left toolbar) won't work. The menu opens, but none of the displayed options can be choosen (e.g. 'Ellipse' from the 'Rectangle' tool drop down) Editing brushes via "More" is impossible. The entire dialog is unresponsive and won't even close I have not checked out the entire application yet, maybe this list in incomplete. On my Win 7 Pro 64-Bit Workstation with a Wacom CTH-661 everything runs just fine as far as I've seen. Is that a known issue or a bug specific to the trial version? Regards, Chris
  6. Hi, I used the pen tool to create a drawing with curves and lines. Once completed, I realised that it would look better if the lines were brushes. Looking more like pencil lines rather than hard edge pen tool lines. Is there any way of converting all the lines to brush style quickly? I odnt want to draw everything in brush tools. Thanks
  7. I would really like the ability to change the mode of the Pen Tool via the keyboard. I was switching between curves, lines and polygons today, and having to jump up to the toolbar every time was driving me nuts! Thanks
  8. I'm using Affinity Photo and I'd like to stroke a rectangular or circular (or any other selection) shape. I haven't figured out how to do it… I've made the selection with the rectangular marquee tool. In Photoshop, this operation is really easy but I'm stuck in AP. Thanks for your help.
  9. Hello. I would like to know if there is possibility to set the pressure sensitivity of a Wacom pen. I would like also to have some pencil brushes. Do they exist in Aphinity photo? Or do I need Aphinity Designer for this? I want to do some sketching. Thank you. With Kind Regards. Jozef
  10. I usually use magic wind to select but often I want to improve selection. Ordinary tools can't make smooth and precise edit so I would like to use pen. For example to add zone to existing selection. I know that I can convert pen curve to selection but new curve removes current selection.
  11. How do I make these keystrokes on a US keyboard?
  12. I'm using Affinity Designer 1.5.5 on iMac 2017 with Radeon Pro 580 as a second user (not administrator). Only when another user is logging in, the cursor of pencil/brush tool is invisible on white workspace, visible on black area. Oppositely, even when I'm logging in, another user doesn't have any trouble with using Affinity Designer. - It occurs only with some pen tools (pen/pencil/brush), doesn't occur with the other tools(e.g. rectangle tool) - First user doesn't meet this trouble, even though my and his preferences look same. - Hardware OpenGL preference doesn't affect to this problem - It occurs with Affinity Photo' pen tools Is there any work around solution?
  13. The top most line is a pixel line I made in Photoshop. The line below it is the line I've created in AD using the Pen tool. As you can see the line is the correct width, but the stroke overhangs. I've tried playing with all the stroke positioning options and can't see a solution. Frustrating! Do I need to create a 1 pixel high box shape instead?
  14. 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!
  15. Sorry if this is a very stupid question. But I need to draw a single straight line. So I select the Pen Tool, hold down the Shift key to make it perfectly horizontal, draw it and it appears. Good. But then as soon as I click the Move Tool the line disappears! Why?
  16. Hello, In an effort to transition from Photoshop to Photo, I thought I'd try to at least establish a freehand sketch for a design I'm working on in Photo rather than Photoshop. I tend to use a simple hard round brush with shape dynamics enabled in PS and Jitter determined by Pen Pressure. With Photo, I've selected an equivalent brush under the Basics and set Size Jitter to Pressure under Dynamics. So far so good. The problem I'm experiencing is that when I sketch a freehand curved line in Photo, the precision isn't quite there. The curve I draw is often made up of a series of small (and sometimes not so small) straight lines rather than following the pen exactly. It's as if the software is unable to keep up with the pen and interpolates between two points along the movement of the pen. Photoshop doesn't do this. Has anyone experienced this? Is it a known issue and if so, will it be addressed? Having the line follow the pen exactly is critical Thanks, -grant
  17. Hi everyone! Perhaps it's just me, but I can't get wacom's grip pen tilt sensor to work with the brushes. I was trying with the DAUB markers (the one with the "vertical" shape). I can get pressure sensitivity, but no tilt for changing the shape rotation ... Is this possible? Thanks.
  18. I actually do hope I've missed something obvious here so that someone can quickly point me in the right direction! I keep trying to draw with the pen, and the tutorial says that holding down the ALT key will let me break my curve so I can go off on an angle, but it's not working for me. The ALT key is shared with the OPTION key on my Mac, so is there maybe a different key I should be pressing instead? It's getting really frustrating to have to shove the handle in to try to create a sharp corner on a line I'm trying to draw. Doesn't work very well, or even snap into the node, freeing it, if I bring that handle point right on top of it. Is there any other sort of key shortcut I should be using? ALT just isn't breaking the curve for me, for whatever reason. Please help!
  19. I've noticed that Affinity Designer sometimes slows down drastically when I'm using a stylus. I'm not talking about drawing in particular; interacting with the UI is even worse. Simple things like locking a layer or selecting a color sometimes take several seconds. Everything suddenly performs as expected when I use the trackpad instead.
  20. Pen latency has been on my mind since the new Surface Pro and iPad Pro were announced. I enjoy drawing in Affinity Designer with the brush tool, and I really like some of the fancier brushes, but the appearance of new lines always lags behind my drawing pretty drastically. When using elaborate brushes, would it be practical for Affinity Designer to draw a plain, unstyled line under the stylus immediately and then draw the fancy brush version over it?
  21. Hi all, I'm working in Infinity Photo iOS on my iPad Pro and need to make a selection using the Pen tool. I can't figure out how to make a sharp anchor point to join two curved paths (please see attached). Normally in Photoshop, I'd hold down the alt/option key and click on the anchor to activate the "V" corner feature so I can adjust the two tangent handles independently, but I don't have this ability on the iPad. I tried the "Sharp" and "Smooth" bottoms in the Node mode, but they just toggle between straight-lined joints and curved lives without a corner. The path handling tool doesn't seem to be too intuitive, and I need to use the Pen tool to make precise selections. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Also, is there a feature like Photoshop's "Exclude Overlapping Shapes" or "Intersect Shape Areas"? I find that when I create a smaller shape within a large shape, the large shape disappears.
  22. I would love it if you could easily toggle to the node tool while drawing with the pen tool. It would make drawing masks much quicker. Or even if you could choose one of the bezier handles with the pen and adjust it that way. Now, if I click on one of the control points with my pen it drops another point instead of letting me adjust the handle angle. On a related note, please let the node tool adjust just one side of a Bézier curve. I'm try to crest an accurate mask and if use the node to adjust one side the other side adjusts as well. Can't get a good mask like that. Thanks
  23. Is there anyway to toggle between the pen and node tool when using the pen on the ipad? I use this feature all the time in PS by pressing modifier keys while drawing a path and the pen switches to node and when I release the key it goes back to the pen. It is very quick and I use it daily. I was hoping that there might be a way to do this on the Ipad version of Photo. So far loving the ipad version, but am getting used to interface. Thanks!

  25. Is there a way to convert a Pen Tool path you make into a selection. There is a selection from layer I can do, but I would like to just convert the path into a selection, without having to create extra layers.
