  1. 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.
  2. I was thinking it would be useful if you could hide a segment of a curve's stroke. I've been running into a lot of situations where this would be useful. Moho Pro, for instance, has the "Hide Edge" tool, which hides a part of the stroke between two points (pictured above)

    Brushes to stroke a path

    I hope the attached image makes this clearer and I can't figure out what's wrong (or, what I'm doing wrong). I'm trying to "ink" a pen shape with a brush/texture and although the option appears to be there, I can't find it in the online manual. It's not a deal-breaker but I've been pulling my hair out for ours (well, pulling my virtual hair out anyway because the real stuff abandoned my like my youth. ) Can someone explain please? Or is this actually a bug?

    Messy stroke on high zoom.

    I found very annoying bug in Designer when stroke is diplaying incorectly on high zoom in and with guides and grid enabled. I haven't noticed that without any guide or grid. messy stroke.mov
  5. In help there is information that it is possible to add stroke to artboard in Designer. However it just doesn't work. I recorded my attempt to add stroke to artboard. Help: https://affinity.help/designer/en-US.lproj/pages/Artboards/artboards_clr.html no stroke on artboard.mov
  6. Hello there, I am drawing on a Wacom Bamboo Slate, which can export your drawings (and writing via a kind of OCR) to text, image formats and SVG. Here's Wacom's specs for the Slate: http://www.wacom.com/en/products/smartpads/bamboo-slate#Specifications The Slate's ballpoint pen is marketed as having 1024 levels of pressure which in theory seems a bit much for a ballpoint pen, but would be nice if it could reproduce the light and heavy strokes you have made on paper. My problem is that the SVG files exported from Wacom's Inkspace app are filled black shapes instead of strokes. The shapes are thicker than the original paper lines, losing most of the line width variance, and I cannot find a way to reduce the width as you would with a stroke. I am attaching an image to illustrate my problem. Any thoughts on how to convert these shapes into strokes so that I could make them thinner? Many thanks in advance! PS there may be an answer in the thread below ('line width is not yet fully supported in the SVG standard'), but I'd like to confirm if something can be done about this using Affinity Designer? https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/45452-how-do-i-import-paths-they-keep-turning-into-shapes/#comment-227169
  7. Hello friends, Do you know how to apply the gradient tool to stroke? Thanks in advance. Regards, Nick
  8. I can't seem to get the Stroke Align to change.
  9. Possibility to choose stroke options left/right/center on open path would be just great time saving tool. If open path can be filled with color, then it should have outside/inside stroke options.

    Expand stroke crooked

    Hi, after months and months of using affinity, somehow suddenly the expand stroke didn't work right. Look at this screenshots: (I coloured stroke to red with purpose, to see how the stroke crooked after expand) Thanks for reply
  11. Hi, Designer 1.5.4 on Mac OS X 10.8.5. I drew a simple pen shape (in Draw Persona), and made the stroke a vector brush (ie, Stroke Style button 'Texture Line Style'). How do I now cancel the vector brush and revert the stroke to a plain line stroke? I would've thought: Stroke Palette—>Style—>Click 'Solid Line Style'. But the vector brush stroke stays. Same when I click the Dash Line Style. Same when I adjust the stroke width slider. However: Clicking 'No Line Style' _does_ work, and removes all stroke. But when I then click Solid Line Style (or Dash Style), the vector brush stroke comes back. What am I missing?? thanks in advance, - pbass
  12. Hello Is this possible in Affinity Designer? I can't find any settings. Thank you.
  13. Can anyone tell me what keeps happening to my pencil strokes, and what to do about it? I am drawing using the pencil tool. The thick black stroke in the first image is what I have been using, and it is what I want. However, in the middle of drawing something (in this case, I was tracing the shape that is on the bottom left of both images), all of a sudden all of my strokes disappear (compare images below). The pencil lines are still there, but the thick black part is gone and I'm left with just the thin blue selection lines (not the selection box; I mean the lines that make up the curves themselves are now just thin blue lines). And I don't mean just on the particular curve I've been working on, I mean when this happens every stroke in the document (even on other, supposedly locked layers) has gone from thick black lines to almost invisible thin lines. When I check the stroke settings—brush width, size variance, solid line style, etc.—none of them have changed, but my nice thick black lines are still gone. Changing these settings has no effect, and undoing has no effect—I can undo all the way back to the point at which I first drew each line, and they are still thin blue lines the whole time, not thick black ones. This has happened to me in two different documents so far, and because I can't find a way to fix the lines or undo whatever happened, I have had to start over from scratch, which really blows. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong and how to fix it? I've searched the forums and tutorials for help but haven't found any info. If you reply please have mercy and use laymen's terms. :) I am very new to Affinity Designer, and to graphic design programs in general. Thank you very much.
  14. Dear Affinity-Team, I've been working on a logo font where i use mostly bezier curves to define the look and after that expand to strokes... while I'm used to clean expanded strokes/curves... within Illustrator for instance, in Affinity Designer the created points are quite a lot if not messy?! This is even more problematic (also slows down the app considerably) with SVG/EPS Exports. (see attached files) Optimising / simplify curves/strokes could be helpful.. in that case. As well just a better conversation or maybe better conversation control. Other than that is the Affinity Designer pretty nice!
  15. How can one create a border - either in a straight line or in a dashed line - like the one you can create with the “stroke” function in photoshop?
  16. Hi there, I just wanted to let the team know that the Expand Stroke option needs some work—especially with curves. I've had multiple instances where A.D. gets this wrong and ends up giving me a shape that is not exact, and in some cases it looks really terrible. Below is one example—although not the most extreme case. This may look like nit-picking, but when Illustrator can get it spot on and when detail matters, this is an issue that will stop me from using the program. Thanks for your time, and have a nice day. P.S. Try Expanding the stroke of a circle. It's bad. I know there is a donut tool, but it's still an issue.
  17. The accuracy of the Expand Stroke is so low that it does not allow you to use it for precise work, like making SVG icons for Retina resolutions, where all theres mistakes become obvious. Check out two video examples about straight lines and circles. 2018-03-28_11-44-37.mp4 2018-03-28_12-05-01.mp4

    Inaccurate expand stroke

    Draw a circle with border, expand stroke and you get an oval! Expand stroke is a very useful tool, but is not accurate, at least with circles as you can see in the screen shot. Please fix this bug.
  19. 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
  20. A few of things about applying strokes to groups: It would be nice to have this working, i.e stroke apply to resulting object, rather than each of the children. Why does applying a stroke to a group containing a pixel layer, essentially apply a fill? When attempting 2, there seems to be a performance issue (high CPU usage).
  21. Hello everybody. I have a question. I made a illustration and I apply a stroke effect on it (with fx, not a direct stroke). For the laser cutting I have to make a 2pt stoke all around the illustration. Can I vectorise the effect to apply a stroke on it (the red on in the picture) ? If not, what is the workflow ? Thanks in advance.
  22. What is the alternative to the smooth tool of Adobe Illustrator or what is the way to do it in Affinity Designer; and not using corner tool. Thank you
  23. I’m designing a University Style Logo in Affinity Designer, and am using the font you can see in the photos. I’m using a white fill, black stroke and white fx outline. I’m trying to make it so that the black stroke is essentially 100% transparent, so that the stroke takes the colour of the fabric it is printed on. I’ve scoured the internet for how to do this but found no answers. I’ve tried converting to curves and subtracting the black stroke from the white letter behind and nothing. Any help would be tremendous. Thank you.
  24. I tried to change the stroke to be pointed at the both ends. Applying all kinds of brushes provided that look thin at the start and the end doesn't show the effect desired, only change the stroke thickness ( see attached pic). How to get this function to work?
  25. Hi, I'm wondering if it's possible to mask a stroke in Affinity Designer and keeping it open? As you can see in the image attached, I'm creating a compound object (Stroke + Sphere Shape). Unfortunately the stroke always gets closed after creating the compound object. What I'd like to do instead is to split the stroke in 2 with a sphere mask. This should be done in a non destructive way so that I can adjust the sphere mask later on. Is this possible? Thanks and best regards, Daniel
