  1. When two or more shapes are alligned (from anchor to anchor), and these shapes have no stroke, it results in a transparent edge instead of no edge. See Example. Each of the triangles here are perfectly alligned from point to point, which should leave no space between shapes. The stroke is set to no colour, and the weight set to none, so I would imagine that the 'fill' should take up 100% of each shape. However, it seems that the stroke (which shouldnt exist), stil takes up a fraction of the shape, and allows the background to show through ever so slightly. The obvious way to get around this is to slightly overlap each shape - as you can see, there are quite a lot in the above, so this would be impractical. Is there any obvious way to get around this? Apologies, this question has probably been asked before, but I was finding it dificult converting this question to a searchable term.
  2. It's great we have arrows now and I use them a lot already. So thanks a lot for that!! This makes our lives so much more fun! When creating a new object, this new object gets the same styling as currently set. So all new objects get the arrows and stroke settings applied when created. While creating a new object, especially when just used a stroke with arrows, I am missing a single button to reset the stroke to a factory preset, like a line of 1 px, stroke disabled, but most importantly: no arrows selected (and set back to 100%). A reset stroke would be nice to use after using strokes with arrowheads to reset the stroke to the (in my opinion) most used strokes, which are just lines without arrows.
  3. On the A.I. file, you can see in the above menu that the text stroke is 4 pt. Over to the right, in the Layers, column, you see only the selected text block. (There are NO outlines...) After importing the ai file into Affinity Designer, everything "looks" fine, however the STROKE border has been eliminated from the Text itself, and has been converted into separate outlines for each letter. Look at the Layers column and you will see that I have selected the text, "Hagia Sophia" (blue highlight). You will also see that stroke width is 0 pt (not 4 pt.) Above the text selection are separate outlines for each letter of that text. Those are the "strokes" that have been removed from the text and converted to outlines. (See more below...) To demonstrate what I mean, I toggled off the visibility of the Text, and you can see that what is left are the outlines that have been converted from the original text. When I click on the outlines, voila!, there we see the 4 pt stroke in the stroke column to the right. The current way you do it would be okay if all I never wanted to revise the image but that, of course, is why I would import my ai files into Designer . . . so that I can revise them. Even on this simple grahic image, it took quite awhile to revise the text. It seems that you already can translate the stroke values from the original ai file so, rather than creating a new outline for each letter, couldn't you add the stroke value to the text of the converted Designer file? Thank you for hearing me out.
  4. Hi, In Stroke properties, both in Publisher and the Designer app, the settings for a stroke and be make think - thick - thin yet the results in a stroke do not show as such. As this photo below. Settings, bottom yet the top, which is the line I'm working on stays fat. Oddly enough this is also true in my iPad Designer app. What am I doing wrong or is this a quirk?
  5. I cant apply to a path any stroke width, nor change brush shape nor change stroke colour. I can only apply fill colour. Similar situation is when I try to change stoke width and colour to the artistic text or defined shapes like rectangles or ellipses. I found that this problem disappears when I apply no colour to a stroke, and then I can apply any stroke width, brush and colour.
  6. I finally give up. How do you stroke something? I drew a rectangle with the marquee tool and want to stroke that line. I do it all the time in Photoshop, but I cannot find a way to do it in Affinity. I also can't find any instructions or tutorials online. There seems to be help for what to do with the stroke after you have it, but I need to create it in the first place. I have the same question for filling the selection. thank you

    Expand Stroke issue

    Hi, maybe it is not completely a bug, but I believe this should be fixed if it is a software fault. Problem: If I use Layer > expand stroke on rounded curves results are not as expected and what is interesting - this effect intensifies when the curve has a smaller size. The picture below shows 12px wide circle affected by what I am talking about. I figured out that I can draw a large circle, expand it and scale it down for better results - but it's a poor solution for the long run. My Affinity Designer version: 1.6.5.135 M. Kowalewski
  8. Hi, I am creating the letter F by connecting the two nodes in the red circle to create a single path that I want to expand from a stroke to a shape and export to FontForge. After trying everything on the list below, ‘join’ continues to connect the two other end nodes in the green circle that I don’t want to connect. Things I have tried: Select both nodes in the red circle and ‘join’ and 'close' Select both nodes in the red circle hold shift and drag until both nodes turn yellow Enable ‘snap to selected nodes’ then select both nodes in the red circle and ‘join’ ‘Join’ both nodes in the green circle, select again and ‘break’
  9. Hi, I am new to Affinity Photo but have used Photoshop for a few years. Is there some way of stroking or rendering a curve? regards Beckett
  10. Hi, I already drew a picture and realize now that the width of the paint brush is too thin and I have been searching everywhere for how to change the width of the paint brush strokes but I haven't found any solutions and I experimented with things and nothing has changed. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you.
  11. So I'm using pressure on a stroke. I was having issues with it distorting when using "Expand Stroke" (where smooth curves were changed to chunky edges). In another post on this forum, someone suggested enlarging the object and then expanding the stroke. In doing so, I discovered this super bizarre bug. See the attached images I show when I zoom in to one of the corners. I also show the expanded stroke and all the countless nodes. This is unusable if I ever want to expand this kind of stroke. Am I doing something wrong?
  12. Hello. Having consigned my CC account to the trash can, I am now learning to use Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer. My question concerns the addition of a stroke to the selection marquee. I have searched the forums and cannot find any answer and wonder if a more experienced user of Affinity Photo can help me. Photoshop had a very simple method by which a stroke could be applied to any selection marquee. This was a really useful feature and I used it regularly for highlighting salient features of images which I had included in presentations, where the images would be included to illustrate important points in the discussion. I would like to know what sequence of events I should follow in Affinity Photo when applying a coloured stroke to a selection marquee. Thank you for your assistance.

    Expand stroke like weird

    Helo guys, I try to make artwork to be curve permanently, and I have problem because The expand stroke result seems weird. Anyone tell me how to make it properly proportional shape in AD before after
  14. Helo, I bought AD on my iPad yesterday and i Newbie to do icon design with AD, usually I’m making icon with 2pt outline for 32px icon. But the stroke seem to big. And I’ll try with another app it’s seem normal, can you fix this this is 2pt stroke with AD And this is with Vectornator
  15. In the Affinity Photo Stroke Panel, it says ' Style—Select a line style button to change how the line is drawn. Choose from None, Solid Line Style, Dash Line Style, and Texture Line Style, respectively. The last option applies the currently selected brush in the Brushes panel to the stroke. ' I'm having trouble getting the Pen tool to use the Texture option in using the current brush. Any tips? Thanks.
  16. If you align stroke other then to middle while rendering there will be some graphic artifacts. Fill color will show up there it should not. Or there will be transperent gap between stroke and fill. That makes stroke alignment feature unusable for quality export graphic. Is there a way to fix this?
  17. None of the three align modes have any effect in Publisher. Stroke is aligned center, no matter wich mode is selected.

    Not all strokes expand?

    I wanted to expand the stroke made from some imported brushes, but it doesn’t expand. When I try some of the pens which came with the app, it works. And I’m in the Vector Persona all the time. So how do I know which pens work expanding or not?
  19. This is weird. Did not test out at other places where the slider is used for the width of a stroke. Look at the video and try yourself if you are able to move the slider to value 0. After all the value IS 0, but this is irritating. textframe-stroke.mp4
  20. In a table the stroke of multiple selected table cells often doesn't change and update accordingly. When I select all cells of a table in order to set their stroke to none and stroke size to 0, only few cells (randomly) are affected and updated. Many cells still do show a stroke there, even when afterwards the settings of some individual selected/active cells do show "none stroke" and "size 0" there is still a visable none removed stroke. One always has to reclick and retouch the stroke size slider of such cells in order to get them updated and to show up no stroke at all.
  21. I'm brand new to Affinity Design and I'm having teething problems trying to do certain things I'm used to doing in Adobe Illustrator. For example the custom brush, or a brush that is thin in a point at one end only and responds to pen pressure. Also I used to be able to draw this out neatly with a line from the pen tool and then drag the brush from the menu of brushes to instantly change the pen line to this stroke effect. What's the best way to customise this type of brush? (The pictures come from this custom brush tutorial suitable for Adobe Illustrator http://www.bittbox.com/illustrator/illustrator-how-to-make-custom-swooshes-swirls-and-curls ) Another question while on topic, I already have some brush files suitable for illustrator but wont open in Affinity, is there anyway they can work or be converted to work? Thanks
  22. I'm trying to draw this tree (PSD attached) and you can see that the branches and dark grey area are clipped into the orange layer. I used a vector brush stroke to create the branches and after I export them to Photoshop, they're rasterized. Is it because of the masking or is it because it's a stroke? Also, not sure why the dark grey area rasterized as well. Are there other ways I could have done this differently? Sorry if it's not my best description - I'm just confused. Untitled (1).psd
  23. When defining a stroke width, Affinity Designer (and Publisher) currently converts decimals more than one place to tenths. It is important to have the ability to specify decimals in the stroke width of a line up to four decimal places so that the software can be used to define vector cut lines in laser engraving software. Case in point - the users manual for Trotec Job Control states that for vector lines to cut with a laser, you must set them at a width of "0.001 mm or 0.00005 inches" (see attached screenshot). You currently cannot do that with Affinity Designer/Publisher, if you type in a width of "0.0036pt" (equal to 0.00005 inches) as the stroke width, the software will convert 0.0036 to zero. Actually anything less than 0.1 will get rounded down to zero. This is important functionality if we were to completely replace Illustrator & InDesign. Thanks.
  24. Dearest forum members I fell in love with affinity photo and -designer and am getting a lot of work done. Thank you devs. There is an issue with my way of thinking and I'm sure I'm just one little step aside. I scanned a ink splatter and wish to create a outline of it to print only the outline. The selection is easy and even giving it a stroke, but the moment I deselect the selection area, the artboard is empty. I tried to rasterize, tried to create a new layer with the selection selected and created a stroke but again, the moment I deselect, the artboard is empty. It's like I'm just doing some little mistake but can not find out what it is. The forum post show that a lot of designer wish to stroke a selection and some tips are not bad, but none of them work. I created a "style" but again, the stroke will not remain . Please help. Kindest regards Urs
  25. You’re propose your app as a tool for work in vector. This is not true. You can add a lot of elements easily, work with color, blur etc. But once you need to scale the vector object you’ve created YOU SHOULD MANNUALLY GO TO EACH OBJECT AND SET “SCALE WITH OBJECT” Could you please set as priority ticket for your developers add a SCALE FUNCTION when you can just click on the object, click in Edit Menu “scale”, set ratio or percentage and you will get scaled option of your image. In addition your export feature need so much power from my Macbook that comparing it to the Illustrator. I’d better avoid all of those coll things you’re proposing just to get scalable and adopted vector file.
