  1. Hi, I am looking for advice on how to properly set up my canvas in Affinity Photo for print. I have only created composites for use across web and digital content - never print. Few things to know: - I do not use my own photos, only royalty free imagery from sites like Pixaby. So I never begin with a set “background”. - I would like to set up my canvas for large prints (i.e 24x36, 16x20, etc). However, is there a way to set up these sizes that is scalable so that I have the option to print it much smaller if I wanted, without distorting the image? - I’m not certain how DPI, pixel size, and resizing come into play when dealing with print. Any advice is much appreciated - thank you!
  2. Hi! The "Resize Pixel Art Document" feature is completely broken, at least for me. When using this feature, the final result is always a blank transparent file. I've attached a video demonstrating what happens when I use it. The image in the video has transparency, but the result is the same when using non-transparent images. I hope this can be fixed soon... Unless there is some preparation I need to perform on the image before using this feature that I am unaware of... The official Affinity Photo documentation doesn't mention anything in particular. 2019-10-24_09-57-53_T.mp4
  3. Hello sir, In Affinity photo when I merge top layer with a bottom layer which is scaled up, the top layer is first scaled down to the previous size of bottom layer and then scaled up to match the total width of both layers. Please see the following video. And here is another link which has proper use of this issue..
  4. Please add a Dimension tool & document scaling to fully enable technical drawing along with the excellent illustration tools. We could do this manually in the interim if the transform studio displayed more resolution, 3 or 4 decimals should do it. Thanks!
  5. I have just updated my affinity design and the behavior of the text bloc as changed. How can resize my text bloc without scaling its content ? I dont want to manually insert line return each time I want to change the size of the text bloc. Thanks
  6. I have previously used Graphic for Mac 3.1 this provides the ability to set a scale for a document. eg 1: 10, 1:50, 1:100 This feature is invaluable when creating scale drawings for real life objects.Examples include the design of kitchens and room layouts in properties. As a relatively new user of Affinity Designer I was disappointed to find that there's no option to set a scale on a drawing. Affinity Designer is without doubt a great product, which I will happily continue to use. The additional of scaling capabilities would open even more opportunities for users like myself. Keep up the great work ! Can't wait for Affinity Publisher to be released ...
  7. So I have a layout that has numerous text boxes, that was originally designed for 8.5x11". I want to scale the design down to 5.5x8.5". How do I scale the text boxes so that when I scale them down, the font is resized automatically? Currently this is what is happening: I grab a handle of a text box that contains 12 point font, and scale it down. The text box scales down, but the font within does not. The font stays the same size (12 point), and eventually the words in the textbox simply overflow the textbox, because they no longer fit within the smaller dimensions of the scaled textbox. What I am trying to achieve: I grabe a handle of a text box that contains 12 point font, and scale it down. The text box scales down, as does the font within. The font goes from 12 point to whatever is need to keep its layout within the textbox (let's say 9 points). The words in the textbox don't overflow, as they maintain their original layout within the textbox. Ideally I want to achieve this without converting to curves, as I want to retain the ability to edit the text.
  8. I purchased Affinity Photo for multi-layered pixel art creation, but I'm finding that I cannot use the Merge Layers or Rasterize layer features because they automatically choose a filtering algorithm which causes blurring. How can I fix this? This currently is a deal-breaker for me unfortunately. I've tried the following: Using Nearest rendering in the Performance settings (this causes everything to look as I expect on the canvas while editing the document, but the blurring problem occurs as soon as a multi-layer document is merged, exported/flattened, or a layer is rasterized) Choosing Nearest filtering during PNG export. For some scenarios this appears to work around the issue, but for general purposes it's not a solution since I frequently need to be able to merge selected layers together as part of my workflow without exporting the entire document I still cannot find any way to merge layers or rasterize selected layers using Nearest filtering. The result is that my artwork frequently is distorted/blurred from what I'm seeing in the on-screen canvas/display. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide
  9. Hi Everyone, I'm trying to figure out the lock aspect ratio, after some searching I found a topic about the constraints tool, but let me start at the beginning. Working on a design for a client, on a 5 x 5 in Artboard, when it came time to place the design into some mock-ups the issue appeared, the entire design looses it shape, I've used Shift while adjusting the size using the click and drag. But this is a temporary fix, is there one more permanent, as I have a few of these to generate, and move over to publisher, once my design reaches past a certain size it just looks like a splotch on the Artboard. Across the Suite, it never keeps the aspect ratio, how can this be resolved. I tried the constraints tool, but that also didn't help.
  10. I have been able to repeatedly reproduce a Publisher user interface hang issue when running Windows 10 under any display scaling larger than 100%. If I set Windows display scaling to 130%, sign out, sign in, start Publisher, then use File / New to create a new document, the document gets created, but the UI stops responding and Task Manager shows Publisher's CPU usage spinning between 15% and 17%. The only way out is to use Task Manager to kill Publisher and go back to 100% display scaling. I use three 4K monitors running under nVidia drivers (up to date), Windows 10 Pro 10.0.18363 Build 18363 with 32 GB of RAM. I usually run at 100% scaling because all other applications I use are OK with it, but in Affinity applications, the menu and dialog fonts are too small at 100% unless I move my face to within about 8" of the screen. Affinity applications really need a way to scale the user interface without having to scale the entire OS display. Bob Clarke AffPublisher-1.0-folder minus Samples.zip
  11. Unfortunately the following bug was not fixed in version 1.7 (1.7.0.367): https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/38289-dual-monitor-with-different-scaling-tool-cursor-image-huge/ The same problem still exists with Affinity Photo 1.7 under Windows 10 1903 with Surface Book 2 (200%) and external monitor (100%). I'm really disappointed that this bug still hasn't been fixed after over 2 years. Please solve the problem, so Affinity Photo is not usable with dual monitors.
  12. System information: Operating system: Windows 10 (Anniversary Update) Dual monitor setup One monitor is a 4K screen (3840 x 2160) set to 250% scaling The other monitor is (1920 x 1080) set to 100% scaling Affinity Photo Version: 1.5.1.54 Steps to reproduce: Simply open Affinity Photo in the 100% scaled monitor. Select a tool (other than Move Tool), and move cursor over your image, it will be very large and pixelate (see screenshot with View Tool, large hand icon) Other Notes: If you move Affinity back to the high DPI display, tool cursor is perfect there. Move Tool, which seems to just use default cursor does not have this issue. Otherwise, I am super impressed how well Affinity works already on High DPI displays and multi monitors, it's not yet perfect, but far far better than a large number of Windows programs and competing photo editing apps. Well done!!
  13. Excuse me for the newbie question. Is there a way to simply scale down an image to a certain percentage? I just switched from GIMP, and after designing certain images that I have to make regularly, I also need to make a mini version at 18% of the size. Is there a simple way to do this, or do I need to do the math outside the program, figure out what 18% is, and then scale it to the right pixel count? Tell me it ain't so.. Here's how it looks in GIMP, so that you know what I'm looking for:
  14. Does anybody know how I can scale my Objects with strokes and gradients percentually so they doo't look messed up after scaling them? I don't mean proportional just percentual so I don't have to adjust gradients & strokes. Many thanks in advance
  15. Hi, I'm having an issue scaling the width of some grouped objects that I hope someone has a solution for. When changing the width(of grouped objects) with the "Move Tool [V]" and the center width handles, the sheared angle changes so I cannot realign it to another object it is joined to. However when I shear a rectangle shape using the "Rectangle Tool" and then scale the width with the "Move Tool [V]" and the center width handles it keeps the correct shear angle. Surly there is a way to keep the original angle but change the width only. The angles stay correct when scaling both height and width using the "Ctrl"key(windows) but I only want to change the width not the height too. Does anyone have an answer to this? Example image attached.
  16. Has anyone run into a situation where they cannot scale or rotate or shear an image they drag into their Affinity Photo document? I can select it with the move tool and the blue selection box appears as normal, but grab a corner or side node and try to drag and nothing happens. It will move by using the keyboard arrow keys only. I tried using my wacom stylus as well as the built in mouse on the laptop to no avail. I added other images to the file and they had the same issue. If I save and close the file and re-open, it works as expected. The layer is not locked. I also saved the file and opened it in Photo on a different computer and it worked just fine. I am thinking the issue is isolated to the one machine and a setting made with that. If anyone has any suggestions as to what might cause this non-responsiveness, I'd appreciate the help. thanks
  17. I use Inkscape with Affinity Design to get the functionality that Affinity Designer needs to improve/add (such as better expand stroke, dxf import export). When I copy and paste any graphic element from Affinity Designer to Inkscape it's scaled up by a factor of 3.125 and vice versa. Is there any way to avoid this scaling between this two programs?
  18. I started a drawing and got far enough along that I would rather not have to start over. The problem is that I just realized that the size of the drawing is way too small. I try holding the shift key and dragging the drawing by a corner but none of the line widths keep their proportion, they become skinny and almost disappear. What is the proper, or the best approach to doing this? Thanks!
  19. I see no improvement in solving the scaling issue reported already a long time ago... elements in a VECTOR image shall be scaling with ALL of their properties... that's the point of using a vector editing software. In AD this is not working. Symbols - if contain text on a path are pretty much useless if needs to be scaled - see the attached image. Strokes - you need to enable scaling for each and every stroke. Same with FX... Why can't it work as it should across the whole AD - that ALL elements AND their properties are scaled unless specified otherwise? Would you please FIX this... as much as I love AD, those scaling issues are making using it a nightmare.
  20. Hey there! I'm enjoying Affinity Designer and still trying to get my head around different concepts. I've created a landscape document (A3 size) and expected it to print exactly in A3 landscape. Alas, it turned out that the document is printed on A4 by default. This prompted me to activate "scaling to fit paper" and I picked A3. This time, the landscape document was scaled down to fit on a portrait A3 paper. The only way to get my A3 landscape design to print on an A3 landscape paper was to switch the document back to portrait and turn my design 90°. This isn't very user-friendly though, because I want to have the document in landscape mode (of course). Am I missing something? Thanks, Georg
  21. I have a 65 MB Designer file that has started crashing. I was scaling several buttons (created with one of the gold effects). It was made into a symbol, but I couldn't seem to change the symbol and have it affect all buttons across my file. So, I was scaling each button individually with the Transform tool. Upon scaling the 15th button or so, Designer crashed. Subsequently, starting over, it crashed again even sooner. After crashing several times and haveing to redo everything each time, I made just one change, then saved and it crashed. How can I get my file to save, and not crash? Since it's a large file, I'd need to upload via Dropbox to have it checked. Thanks for any help! Karen
  22. How do I stretch the (blue) sections between the objects (noteheads) proportionally, at the same time keeping the the barline+“barline-to-notehead-distance”+note (section coloured with orange) kinda locked together, with nothing changing between/among them? Basically, I want to stretch what is between the left and right guides in a way that all the objects remain unchanged, but only blue sections stretch proportionally. In constraints I turn off objects’ responses to stretching. This is done. But what is the way after?
  23. In Affinity applications, proportionate and disproportionate scaling behavior change based on if it's a shape, group, or type. If it's a just a shape it's unconstrained by default and you need to hold shift down to scale it proportionally, If if it's a group or type it's constrained and proportionate by default and pressing shift make it un-constrained. I find it difficult to remember this inconsistency when working fast even after all these years (I am using all Affinity applications since their public beta) I would like to know if there are reason and benefit from this kind of inconsistency that I am unaware of. If there's no obvious benefit, could we please have a consistent behavior for scaling? It could be constrained and proportionate by default for everything (shape, group, and type) and by holding shift it can be scaled disproportionately. Or it could be reversed (like the Adobe programs) but consistent for every type of object/group. Would like to hear your thoughts on this. PS. I thought this topic must have been discussed but could not find anything relevant, so please forgive me if it's a repeat. scaling behavior in affinity _2019-08-17_121517.wmv
  24. Select all objects on a page - including text. Group. Drag to scale. Everything scales except text. Is this a bug or a setting option?
  25. Hi there, I resently have an issue with the Move Tool. I wanted to scale a 1px weight line broader. Only to check if the middle Part is correct. But then I noticed that the broader line was scattert. Here ist the Result. So I tried to work around, sure I can duplikate the line, but thats too laborious. Then I tired it in Gimp with the scale tool. And there I can choose between the diffrent Interpolation. My Question ist now, why I cant do that in Affinity? Here the Gimp Version, how it shoul look like. Hope someone can help me.
