  1. Hey guys, I've tried to search this topic, but couldn't quite find it. Although I think it should exist somewhere: Sometimes (not always) when expanding a stroke, the vector lines change and straight lines bend. Has anyone else had this happen? I've attached an example with before and after. Pay attention to the upper line after expanding the stroke. It always requires additional touch up to straighten the lines and can get quite annyoing if there are multiple cases of this happening ;) macOS 10.11.6 (El Capitan) Affinity Designer 1.5.5 Cheers!
  2. Hello! I'm quite new to Affinity Designer and when I was trying to create something, and stumbled across this which I didn't understand. I've recreated it simply to show you. When I tried to subtract two objects (1), by selecting them both (2) and clicking the subtract button, it ended up like (3). I now understand why it does this, but was wondering if there is a way to make it look more like (4). I made (4) badly to show you what it might look like, but don't know how I would do it properlly, I guess is what I mean. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, Dan
  3. I'm making some icons at small sizes (~ 24x24px) and noticed that expanding the stroke of a circle results in odd, wobbly paths. Looks lime some kind of rounding issue, since the larger the circle the less noticeable the issue gets.
  4. Hi I paid a designer to create a logo for me. They have done it using Adobe Illustrator and esported to .eps and .pdf for me. When I open the pdf file in Adobe Reader or Internet Explorer, the logo loos as expected. However, when I open both the .eps file and the .pdf file in Affinity Photo, there are gaps between the shapes/colours, which should be touching eachother with no gaps. Is this a bug with Affinity Photo? As a result of the issues, the files provided to me are useless because I cannot do anything with them without there being a gap between the colours. I have attached 2 screen captures of the problem - you can see the problem more clearly on the one where I have zoomed in - there are white pixels along the edge of the vector edges, even though the shap has no outline, just a fill. It's almost as if Affinity Photo is not anti-aliasing the edges correctly. One thing I thought it might have been, is when AP tries to 'snap to pixels' so I turned that option off before opening the file but it made no difference. Any thoughts/comments/suggestions appreciated!!!! Thanks, Rob
  5. Hello! Expand stroke isn't working properly work. Is this the norm for Affinity Designer or is it a bug? The problem is only with very small objects less than 10x10 px. Affinity Designer 1.6.0 macOS Sierra 10.12.6
  6. Hi. I have terrible issue with strokes ending in new designer 1.6. Is it bug or feature? With this stroke-ending is the affinity designer now useless PS: if I outline the stroke, the ending disappers.
  7. Hi, It seems that there is still a bug in Affinity Designer that causes "glitches" in a stroke (see attachment). It happens when I draw a square with only a stroke. I was hoping that this bug would be addressed in the new version but surprisingly it's not?! * edit: this only happens when I change the pressure of the stroke.
  8. Hi, I have noticed a glitch inside the new version of Affinity Designer 1.6. When I try to expand the stroke of a circle (which only has a stroke), the expanded element gets distorted and is not a perfect circle anymore (see attachment). Hope you guys can fix this. Best regards, Dusan
  9. Strange bug… I am in Pixel Persona, and switch back into Draw Persona. The stroke changes from what I set (1.5pt basic line) to a vector brush at a large stroke width (DAUB Inker 15.4pt) I repeat the process, and the same thing happens again.
  10. I downloaded the demo to verify the affinity photo. I tried to fix some issues even with messenger support on Facebook. I had trouble with the brushes from the beginning. But a problem has not yet been resolved The brush has a very square section. I made a difference with photoshop that shows an image. How can I solve this problem? Affinity Photo demo ... is about to expire.

  11. Hi everyone, i once was a zbrush user, rather as a hobby, not professional, but i allways wondered, why programs like photoshop and affinity didnt have the very smart feature of a lazy mouse like in Zbrush.. now, Adobe Photoshop 2018 has arrived and some nice features are in there.. one of them is the smoothing brush, comparable to the lazy mouse, and improved.. So this would be a very very nice new feature for affinity Photo too.. also symetrie ist great, they´ve embeded also as affinity allready has a panoramic feature.. better organised brushpresets. hmm.. a better maskrefinement, that before photoshop 2018 was not quite as good as the maskrefinement of affinity photo, but now seems to be equal ore even better ? So Affinty Photo Team... some of these new features are worth a look at... greetings.
  12. In Illustrator I use the Stroke Width Tool and lot and I've found that when I import Ai files over to Affinity Designer, the strokes that have been modified with the Illustrator Width Tool have all been expanded and therefore no longer strokes. Obviously this presents a compatibility problem where all my previous strokes are no longer editable. I'd like to see a directly compatibly with the Illustrator Width Tool or not have the strokes expanded and converted the Affinity Designers Pressure adjustment (Though I like the direct Width Tool much more). Thanks.
  13. Having used the pen tool to produce a curve, I select the brush line style, by clicking on the line graphic, click on properties, click on a brush in the brushes panel and the brush appears in the properties panel and then ... nowt. Help.
  14. Struggling to find the options. I know they exist as an effect (fx) but can't seem to find a way to apply them to a stroked shape. Thanks in advance. S
  15. I am having an issue with the Freehand brush. If I go in the textured brushes and select a stroke it does not do that stroke. I have to select the stroke again and then it converts the line to the selected stroke. I have to repeat this for every stroke because it always reverts to the default stroke. How can I select a stroke and have it use that stroke ? Thank.
  16. In Illustrator you can offset an object to expand and contract it. I want to be able to expand some type that has been converted to cures so that it can be a mask. The only way I figured I could do this is to set a stroke to the expanse I want and then to expand the stroke. The problem is the stroke is still acting as if its part of the type instead of a separate object and there is no way I can figure out how to combined the type and the stroke to make a mask object.
  17. IU'm converting from Photoshop and struggling to understand something - In the colour panel, there are 2 colour circles which appear to correspond to a 'fill' colour, and a 'stroke' colour - whereas in Photoshop they relate to Foreground and Background colours. Does Affinity Photo have a concept of Foreground and Background colour or not? In Photoshop I can create a gradient from the foreground colour to the background colour - how do I do the equilavent in Affinity Photo? I used the colour dropper tool to select 2 colours in a photo, but as soon as I switch to the gradient tool I don't seem to be able to use the colours I picked, as a white gradient fills the entire layer and I cannot find an option to go from Fill to Stroke colour.
  18. I am using the pen tool in Affinity Designer to create shapes, and the default stroke weight is 0.2 pt. However, I primarily use the stroke weight of 5 pt. Can I change the default to 5 pt?
  19. I was following the Designer tutorial, "Stylish Strokes: Textured Lines in Affinity" I have a circle. I clicked Stroke and then the Texture Line Style. I clicked Brushes and selected the textured brush that I wanted. How do I remove the gap that appears at the top of my shape? I want the texture to be all the way around. Thanks.
  20. I just want to copy the same effect values to the other object and I already disable 'Scale to Object' checkbox before copying. The copied result is still scaled effect. Please try my file. (copy the round rectangle to the triangle) copy_outline_stroke_bug.afdesign
  21. No further tweaks of “Expand Stroke” or will we get the same quality like in other apps in the next beta?
  22. Hi, I found that newset release of Designer Beta (1.6.0.82) draws stroke differently on various zoom levels. Please check the file I attached and zoom in and out the graphic at one of the innter corners (i.e. the one marked with red circle): The black stroke is "jumping". Cross.afdesign
  23. 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.
  24. The top most line is a pixel line I made in Photoshop. The line below it is the line I've created in AD using the Pen tool. As you can see the line is the correct width, but the stroke overhangs. I've tried playing with all the stroke positioning options and can't see a solution. Frustrating! Do I need to create a 1 pixel high box shape instead?
  25. Hi all, I need help making a proper square or any shape with perfect sharp corners/strokes. I can’t find out how to do so - am I missing something or is this a limitation of Photo’s engine? Please see the attached screenshot. Anything drawn has round corners, even the Pen tool and the Pixel brush! The only way I can get sharp corners is to import a vector object but even then it’s borders lose opacity and it doesn’t look right.
