  1. Hey guys, I am trying to create a logo wherein the background of the logo contains a label shape that is made of two intertwined shapes. The solid shape is both in front of the outlined shape as well as behind it (see attached photos). Question: Is there an easy to create this look using just two shapes or will I have two use a line to complete appearance of intertwined shapes? Thanks!
  2. Hi, what are the chances to receive the option to export Vector shapes into Shapes for Apple Motion? This is a option I would love to see, which would push me away further from Adobe Illustrator. We create most of our Logos in Illustrator and run a script to export the vector shapes for Apple Motion. This would be a great feature for motion graphic artist that use Apple Motion! Thanks
  3. Hi, I was working on a project and attempted to use the Geometry Add feature in Affinity Designer, but have encountered an issue. Please reference the attached image file for an example of my issue. The feature works just fine when I add a shape to the top of my a rectangle, however, when I add the same shape to the bottom of the rectangle and click Add nothing happens. I've messed around and tried a few different things, but to no avail thus far.
  4. Hi, only in Designer Beta, rectangular shape together with rounded corner rectangular and elipse are not included in "Shapes". There is also no "cat" shape in Photo Beta and Publisher Beta.

Free Link: Alternatively, the first ten people to use the following link will have free access to this class: skl.sh/2SrPnX1 Note: This free-access link is set to expire at the end of November 2018. With an Affinity Designer file and examples included with the class, you can get up to speed with the golden ratio and learn how easy it is to introduce a sense of harmony and cohesion to your work; no matter how simple or complex. Learning to apply the golden ratio to your work couldn’t be easier. The class is 33 minutes in duration and an Affinity Designer template file is included. To make the creation of these patterns easy, we will be exploring Affinity Designer’s Donut and Pie tools. We will also play around with the Cog tool; one of Affinity Designer's parametric shapes. The cog tool is so versatile, you’ll be wondering why you haven’t been using it. So Now There are Three Want to know more about how you can make the most of the golden ratio, check out all three classes: – Asymmetrical Drawing & Lettering with the Golden Ratio skl.sh/2JZ4h2Y – Create a Vintage Style Logo from Concentric Circles and the Golden Ratio skl.sh/2P7B08J – Concentric Radial Patterns & Infographics with the Golden Ratio skl.sh/2D0QUPx Note: All three classes feature Affinity Designer.
  6. Hey, just wanted to share with you my latest tutorial on Affinity Designer. In this video you will learn how to create a nice looking flat design moon in Affinity Designer. Hope you'll find it useful! Click here to view the tutorial
  7. 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.

    Trim Tool

    In Affinity Designer on iPad, is there such a tool that allows one to trim curves to other curves. For example, if I have a Donut Shape with a square shape on top of it and I want to take the tilted square shape out of the donut shape but want to leave the curves of two sides of the square intact while trimming the other two sides to the intersection of the outside and inside curves of the donut, then trim the donuts curves that fall inside the shape to the curves of the two edges of the square. In this example the Donut shape after the Trim would be a closed shape and the two lines of the square would be and open shape. If anyone is familiar to AutoCAD’s Trim tool, exactly that tools functionality but in Affinity Designer for iPad. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  9. Hey everyone! This is the first time I'm using the Affinity forum so I apologise if I have used it incorrectly. I have made a vector shape with a 20pt border around the edge. Is there a way to expand the vector to include the 20pt border? Thanks in advance, Matt
  10. Good morning everybody, I am finding another thing that seems to be missing from Designer which I use an awful lot in CorelDRAW and which is kind worrying to me unless maybe I'm missing something. In Corel I have a blend tool. I believe Illustrator has the same thing though I don't use Illustrator. It allows me to create two objects and blend them together. This is particularly useful for creating interesting drop shadows and so on. Is there really no way to do this in Designer? I'm attaching a screenshot to show you what I mean. Corel allows me to choose which aspects of each object interact with one another. Hopefully there is some way of doing this or it will be added as it seems like a very important tool to me. Thanks very much and let me know! Phil
  11. I can import PS brushes, can I import the shape files? I downloaded what I was told were vector files and they all turned out to be csh files. How can I use them? Thanks BTW, my other question is about text envelopes. In OLD versions of my Serif programs one thing I used a lot was the great text envelopes. Is there a way to use the shapes with text to make an envelope? Right now I am bouncing back and forth between a few programs to get the text the way I want. I would prefer to do it all in Affinity Designer if I could. thanks Sig
  12. Hello people, I am new to Affinity Designer and have a question to which I cannot really find the answer online. Hope someone here can help me. I have attached some pictures to clarify. I want to create a baseball cap made up of 4 separate shapes made with the pen tool. This because I want to add different fill colors to each shape. Is there a way to make Affinity close the lines of each shape automatically, so it follows the exact form of the adjacent line? If not, how would you go about it? Regards, Marlon

    Affinity Designer Snapping Bug

    Hi there. I've encountered this snapping bug (See GIF) many times and I'm wondering if this is a bug or something else. The problem seems to happen when an element on the artboard has been idle for a while (meaning it hasn't been touched or moved in a while) and when I create a new shape and try to align (snap) to that idle element the snapping guides don't appear at all. I have to select that idle element first and only then will the snapping feature work. Affinity Designers seems to not want to snap to elements that have been on the artboard for a while. Is anyone else having the same issue?
  14. Hi all, I know this must be simple but I can't make it happen. Take a look at the screengrab. I want this texture to fill the whole group of shapes. Can anyone tell me how to do that as currently I can only get it either behind all the items in the group or inside one of the boxes. Is there a way to do what I am looking for?
  15. Hello everybody, I was wondering if there is an function, short cut in AD to create guides from shapes. Like cmd+5 in illustrator. Thanks in advance!
  16. whenever i devide 3 or more shapes with one another the result i get is a whole bunch of gory cruves (image) using the rounded rectangle tool with thecorner set to 50% inflicts the same weirdness creating a shape of only 'smooth points' again creates the gore, as well as deviding shapes with sharp points. can people recreate this? is this a known bug? often when i try to combine all the curves the program crashes.
  17. 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
  18. Hello! I have just purchased Affinity Designer yesterday, so I am new to this. I have watched some tutorials, but none of them seems to cover what I want. I have two objects, as seen on picture picture [1]. What I want, is for object [1] and [2] to share one side, like what it looks like they do on picture [2]. Now the side that looks like it belongs to both of the objects only belongs to object [2]. Therefore, object [1] is not a closed shape, and if I try to color it, what happens can be seen on picture [3]. Putting it one layer above does not work, as seen on picture [4], but it would not be a nice solution anyways. I want to be able to color both shapes to different colors. For this I need two shapes, that share the same side, or to copy that side over to the other object as well, and put the copy on top of the original one. So basically I want it to like what it's on picture [5]. Please note that picture [5] was done by editing the screenshot in Paint, and not in Affinity Designer, but what I am wanting to be able of is to do that in Affinity Designer. Thank you. Picture 1: Picture 2: Picture 3: Picture 4: Picture 5:
  19. I'm used to Serif DrawPlus, so I tried drawing arrows with the pen tool before realising that the shape tool was suitable. Unfortunately, it seems difficult to draw arrows consistently, particularly to get the arrow heads the same. So I can see that two arrows whose properties I have tried to match, don't. I know, I thought, I'll create a style! Tried that, can't see any confirmation that one has been created or any way of retrieving a saved one. Harrumph!
  20. To try and phrase this as clearly as possible: if you draw a shape (say, an ellipse), you start by selecting the anchor then moving the cursor with the mouse button depressed (i.e. dragging). Normally, the cursor and the boundary of the shape in question move in lock-step, as in, no matter how fast you move the cursor, the selected boundary of the shape is always in-sync with the cursor. If you do the same with the shift key depressed (with the default key bindings), i.e. to force the perspective and make the ellipse a circle, this lock is broken and if the cursor is moved too quickly, the shape will grow at what seems to be a linear rate despite the potentially non-linear movement of the cursor. I hope this makes sense. If it's really necessary, I can provide a screencast.
  21. I'd love to have a way to convert a vector line (which might not be a solid) to a shape. A good example is thickening text, but needing just the final outside shape, not a stroked line. The best case scenario for this is if the function only created the outside shape if the center is filled, or the shape is closed. Otherwise, you end up deleting a bunch of points on the inside. That's not the end of the world, but it would be great to not have to do that. In the attached example, you'd get the outer stroke of this 'T' and nothing else. (sorry if it's already possible and I missed it. I can't seem to find any way to do this) Thanks! AD is AMAZING and saves me from the hell of AI.
  22. Hello. I made abstract deer with triangles. When i try to join shapes (triangles) into one with Operations: Add I get following problem which can be seen on screenshot 2. Is there any other way to join shapes without getting problem/loosing shapes i made. Thank you in advance!
  23. Hi everybody, I don’t know how you feel about this matter, but there is one annoying aspect when drawing shapes that become very small in one dimension, for instance, rectangles having at least one very short side. And this is the disappearing of the middle handle at small zoom levels. You will have to zoom to make this handle appear again, but by doing so, you will often lose the overview of your design. So you will have to stretch your shape a bit, zoom out, look at the entire canvas, zoom in, make further adjustments, zoom out … well, this is somewhat annoying. So what about adding “smart shape handles” that would provide a solution to this problem? I imagine them working like so: when the middle handle of a shape’s bounding box disappears at a certain zoom level and you approach this bounding box with the cursor at the respective side, an additional control area, as shown in my mockup, will pop out, presenting all three handles. As long as the cursor is inside that control area, the three handles would be visible, and the area would collapse, as soon as the cursor would leave it. What do you think? Alex
  24. Hey! Hope you all are doing well! First Thanks for all that you all do and are working towards! Thanks for providing the community with a great and constantly improving program. After using Affinity Designer, there are a few things from utilizing a tablet and the program that I think would benefit user experience and workflow. - Tablet Options When utilizing a tablet. Having some availability options to change and set keys with the tablets through the app would be great. Also, shape/pressure options within the application as well. I suppose more enhanced support when it comes to tablets. - Expanding stroke. When utilizing this, it seems to over compensate on the strokes causing bigger unproportioned (To the original stroke) shapes and makes it difficult to combine/merge the layers to one full layer. -Dividing shapes. When using this, If there could be an option with how many duplicates it makes. It divides and cuts out all the parts, but it does it by doubling up the parts and i end up having to shift around layers to get it to its original state to start working again. Hope this one makes sense. Ill attach examples. Again thanks for what you all do and are developing there at Serif Labs!
  25. Shape strokes anialiasing is terrible and buggy. There is even a gaps between stroke and fill. Also setting stroke to the "center" is not an option for transparent shapes This makes your product completely unusable by any UI designer. And i'd like to ask an urgent hotfix or refund.
