  1. When I have a layer selected I can use CTRL+Drag (in Windows, or whatever it is in OS X) to clone it, and that’s great. But, when I rotate or shear a layer, I cannot also clone it by using CTRL+Drag. I have to make a duplicate and then rotate/shear that. That’s not too much hassle but I think it might be nice to be able to clone a layer while rotating or shearing. Does anyone have a reason why this is a silly idea? If there’s a specific reason why it shouldn’t be done, or there’s some better functionality that could come in the future that could better use this modifier key, then I’m happy to drop this line of enquiry. Just thought I’d mention it.
  2. Hello everyone, I'm new to Affinity Designer and I hope someone can solve my problem: I have to keep a Corporate Design which says that rectangles must have an angle of 15° on two sites (shown in annex). How can I adjust the angle on forms with the knot tool? As far as I tried it I can only adjust the corners freely, but not with an explicit angle on the selected corner. Thank you for any advice. Greetings LiberalDesigner
  3. Hi guys, last question. I need to *skew a shape* to fit it on an image of an iPhone that has perspective. (BTW, this is not the same as using the two arrows, which I found - nor a problem with the concept of shear vs skew). This is the image I am working on. I need to pull the top right corner of the cover image to go on the iPhone down, and the bottom right corner of the cover image up so you have proper perspective. I've searched help, and checked out a lot of videos. If you can help then this is cool. RJ
  4. Hi! Please Add Decimal Places for Rotation, Shear and dpi resolution (number shown in top-left when Move tool is selected) It can be useful and in many cases and make program more precise;)
  5. 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
  6. Firstly, I wanted to take a moment to thank Serif and their programmers for making such a wonderful piece of software. I'm looking forward to one day eventually making the jump from Adobe but I thank you for giving me hope. I already purchased and strapped in for the ride as I know that you lot are going to accomplish amazing things. This is all just constructive criticism and feedback from someone who wants to be able to use your product in a regular and professional way. A feature you really need to put towards the top of the update pile is the Shear/Skew tool for text and objects. Shearing and Skewing fonts and objects are things I do a lot of when I'm working with Adobe Illustrator. It's not a matter of "if" I use it because I always end up using it to some degree at one point or another when I'm working on different projects. For those who might not know the tool by name but know it in function. Shearing/Skewing Shapes Tutorial Shearing/Skewing Fonts Tutorial This is a type of feature I would need to have included in the Affinity package if I were to ever make the jump from Adobe. The tool is simply too valuable for me as a designer. This being said, Affinity DOES include a transform menu (props where earned) within their software which gives you slight adjustment to what objects and font you're working with. The problem is it simply does not work in a way which is smooth and freeform like it exists in Illustrator. I cannot use transform in the same way I can use Shear or Warp. I've included the above links to give the programmers and the other members of the community the level of functionality I am looking for with regards to a Shear/Skew tool for the Affinity Designer. I would hope this is something which is actively being pursued as it's certainly something that would be essential. Thank you in advance for reading my thoughts and concerns and I wish you all success. All The Best, -Copernicus
  7. This is so bizarre I am not sure if it is a bug or something wrong with my software, but I have reset the macros & I still get the same problems. The basic issue is the values in the transform macro step keep changing. Sometimes this is just cosmetic -- it does not change how the macro executes the transform -- but other times it does. Since this is erratic & hard to explain, I hope the attachments will make clearer what is happening. This is the macro I am testing with & what the transform values look like initially vs. after either playing the macro in the Macro tab or saving it back to the library & then opening it for editing (whether or not I play it). This is what the test file looks like before playing the macro: After playing the macro for the first time, the test file looks like this: If I play the macro again (after undoing the changes the macro makes) I get this: Note that the offsets change, the shear is applied on the second run, & pretty much nothing is as I would expect from the original macro as created. Also attached is the test file & the exported afmacro file, zipped because (kind of absurdly) apparently we are not permitted to upload .afmacro files. Transform test.zip

    Shear

    When applying shear manually, the shift key doesn't do anything. I think the shift key should constraint the shearing process in 5 deg. increments the same as when rotating any object. What do other people think? Regards
  9. Do you have other ways to do somethings 3ds like the screenshot that I see shear and rotate at 0 degree? or I'm misled about this. There're hidden features or It's just a mock-up.
