  1. Is there a way to distort vector artwork along a defined shape? Is there a way to simulate tilting it backward into space, skew or warp the artwork?
  2. I don't even know the right way to talk about this, so it's likely this is possible and I just can't find it. When I open a doc in AfPub, in the lower right corner there's a minitab labeled "Transform" -- this is distinct from the Layer -> Transform menu item; here I can just set the item's control point, X and Y Location (x and y), Width, Height, Rotation, and Skew for the selected item(s). Is there a keyboard shortcut (or way to make one) to alter these or put the focus in one of these boxes? Related, and again I don't know what to call it, but if the current selection is, say, a polygon, there's a bar of configuration options running just above the document. It has, e.g., the name of the shape, the fill, stroke, number of sides, etc. What is that called, and how do I get focus there without using the mouse? Thanks!
  3. As a follow-up to the recent Perspective Skew Correction Video by Affinity Photo, I attempted to take the perspective correction one step further by using the Mesh Warp Tool. Below shows the original image used in the video, the application of the Source Mesh, the resulting Destination Mesh, and the resulting image. If the experts at Affinity know an easier way to do it, please let me and the other Affinity Photo devotees how . . . .
  4. 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
  5. Hi. I'm not sure whether this is a bug or done intentionally. If I created a gradient-filled-shape in AD. Then the shape is skewed. Then export it to SVG. The resulting SVG file created an image in place of that gradient. Thanks.
  6. Hi, I'm using Designer to add to some old work done in illustrator, but I've run into a limitation – I need to match some type on path, skewed vertically. Is there any way to achieve this in Designer? To expand the description a bit – in illustrator there is an option to skew the type on a path vertically (similar to option 'B' in the example attached). I'm looking for an equivalent option or a method to replicate this in Designer. Any ideas?
  7. 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
  8. hi, I am making a mockup and I am trying to achieve the effect of skewing (not shearing) as shown in the image below the right edges of the picture is closer to the center than the left ones I am sure that this feature is right there in affinity designer waiting for us to use it because the image below is taken from the official trailer
  9. Hi, I am having trouble placing a screenshot of my latest website design work into the screen area of a monitor. As you can see from the attachments I have an image showing a laptop screen, which currently has a text editor and code on its screen. I'd like to replace this with the other image, which is some of my web design work. However I can't find any way of doing this without the image looking terrible. Does anyone know how to place that "Screen Shot ..." image inside of the laptop? Please help
  10. How do I bend an image? For example say a phone. I know how to crop it out snd add a different background. I put the background of a table. I want to make it seem that the phone is KEPT on the table. For that, the image has to be bent in an angle. How do I do that? I've attached the phone pic as well as the table on which I want that phone pic too. I am using affinity designer v1.5.5. Please do help. Please ask me if you've any doubts regarding my question. Thanks.
  11. im wondering why i cant seem to find the skew feature... im sure its got be in here somewhere.....freehand, corel, and illustrator all had this standard function more than 20 years ago....
  12. In this tutorial (German) I would like to explain how you can project symbols on a transformed parent object to create your own packaging designs. I've used English labels in the layer panel and hope you could follow my instructions. Keep on drawin' Norbert
  13. I've found an odd bug with the corner tool: Create a square Use the corner tool to apply a large curve equally to the top-left and top-right corners. Select the whole square then apply a skew to the right. Duplicate the shape by alt-dragging. You'll find that the top-left corner radius has now reduced in size and the top-right radius has increased. What's more, if you now undo all the steps, the corners remain uneven!
  14. Bought, and really like this software - spent all weekend with tutorials. Just can't get past omission of these tools found in decade-old Freehand 11. I see some in the 2014 roadmap...back to my old mac and hope for an update in 2017!
  15. Hi all. I think I've put in a generous amount of time looking for this basic function, but can't find it. How do you skew an object? And why doesn't a search for the word "skew" turn up any relevant hits in the help? I've hovered over every tool in the palette, every toolbar item, and searched the menus for this function. I've rolled over handles on the object. I've peered at the hints in the status bar. But nope; there's no apparent way to skew an object.
  16. How can I replace an image that has been transformed (given perspective)? Explanation: I have an iPhone mockup and I want to replace the screen with multiple images. The background will not be changing just the content. The images will be at a skewed angle. When the image has not been transformed, in Affinity, it shows the tab 'replace image,' however when I click on the transformed image that option is no longer in the context tab. I'm not sure if this matters but... when I click on the transformed image it is selected and says PIXEL (withOUT the option to replace image). When I click on the image that has not been altered in any way it says IMAGE (with the option to be replaced). I want to replace the image with another image of same size(skewed). How can I easily replace that? This step I need multiple times. I need to replace that single image, save and then replace the image again and again. ------------- If there is no way to do what I want or the replace image option isn't available after an image has been skewed, is there another way to do the same thing I'm looking for? Thank you.
  17. Greetings. I know there must be an easy way to Skew a 2D image? I have a background image of a TV studio... with placeholders for monitor screens. These screen are on various angles - I need to position a 2D TV monitor image into these positions. Any help would be new year fantastic. Thanks in advance...
  18. I tried finding this question posted but couldn't seem to find exactly what I was looking for. I'm trying to modify a Mobile UI Mockup that I did in another application, I want to place it on top of a screen on a phone at an angle which involves screwing the imported image in Affinity Designer. I know you can get this effect using 'convert to curves' with a vector shape but I can't seem to find anything equivalent for imported JPEG or PNG images. I included pictures in a couple of links, as an example of what I'm trying to accomplish, in case I'm not being very clear. Any help with this would be very much appreciated! I'm sure I saw this being done in Affinity Photo but can't figure it out in Designer unfortunately. http://designshack.net/wp-content/uploads/iphone-mockup-psds-24.jpg http://visionwidget.com/images/2016/0123/Isometric_Perspective_MockUp.jpg Thanks very much!
  19. Hello, one of a basic/daily tool we use in Photoshop is the transform tool. It is missing in Affinity. Is it plan to implement it in a close future ? Thanks

    Distort Tool Menu

    It would be super awesome if more was made of distorting shapes. At the moment if you hoover the mouse over the protruding centre line at the top of any shape and wait, you get a little icon which is two arrows pointing in either direction, you can click and drag this to skew the shape a little bit. But they you need to keep rotating the item then turning it a bit if you want to adjust it and it can be a bit of a pain. It would be great if there was a distortion menu which allowed you to just selected pre-made angles for which your shape could distort too, so for example isometric left, isometric right, 45 degrees etc.. and if then you can add advance alteration like changing the percentage of the skew and the manually pick the direction that would be perfect! Really awesome work on the software so far I use it everyday now!
  21. EDIT: FOUND IT! I can't not see how to do this in either Designer or Photo. Is it possible? Thanks for your input... Cesar Alsina
  22. How to reproduce: 1. Draw a rectangle 2. Rotate it a little with the slider or inputing a value in the Transform tab 3. Use the Skew slider (forward and then back) You should be able see the unrecoverable/buggy shape state v1.0.19755 (Affinity Designer Beta)
  23. When I skew an object it leaves a ghost of the original.
  24. Hi, This has no-doubt been suggested already, but perspective tools would be really really handy. Specifically, altering a raster image so that it can be given a perspective-like effect. Thanks
