  1. The ability to grow or shrink a vector by a defined amount of measurement, ex. pixels, inches, etc. At the moment I have found no option that will do this, and the only way to achieve this is to manually transform it into place, which can be a pain if you are trying to expand a stroke and shrink it inside of a vector, or resize a vector by percentage measurements.
  2. Is there a way to change the default position of the transform anchor point in Designer and Photo to not be at the top left but rather in the center?
  3. Hello. How can I scale/transform an image layer in Affinity Photo (iPad)? I'm trying to get to grips with the Affinity suite on the iPad (Photo and Designer) and cannot seem to find anything related to a relatively basic feature such as transforming an image layer on iPad. Found something for the desktop version but it does not seem to apply to the iPad interface.
  4. Hi there! I'm astonished with Affinity Designer for ipad! I'm almost completely transitioned from my PC to iPad, just need a few more options. Suggestion #1: Select BY SAME FILL COLOR This is very important for professional work :) For example, if a group of objects (or shapes) are overlapping, what we need to do is to select them all, and divide them. After they are divided, we need to click on "Add" to merge the shapes together, and that's fine. But if we have a LARGE number of SMALL shapes, merging one by one can take forever.So, option "Select by (the same) Color" is very important and time saving for us designers. How I think it should be done: Solution 1. Click and hold the color (from toolbox) with pencil, or with finger, and while holding it select (with your left hand) three dots icon "..." and then choose "Select all" Solution 2. Add a new icon named "Select Same Color", or similar. Suggestion #2: SHAPE EFFECTS For me, as a Vintage illustrations and Logo designs fan, I would like to have a ARC LOWER, ARC UPPER, AND (possible) ARC tools. For example: Netflix logo. How I think it should be done: 1. After typing "Netflix" for example, convert curves, and than click on new icon set named "shape effects", than click on "Lower arc", or "Upper Arc". OK, that's for now, If I missed these options, if they already exist in same/similar form, please let me know.
  5. Hello, I would like to ask - Is there any resizing of pixels during tranformation of object? I remember that Photoshop automatically depixelate your selection to size of canvas... Is this function in Affinity photo too? Thx! Lukas
  6. try it on these logos - whether grouped or as a multiple selection, the type is not sizing with the rest of the elements coco logo variations 1a.afdesign
  7. Hello dear people, Would you know how to flip an object/shape through a self-defined point in AfD? "Flip Horizontal" would always flip through center, even after dragging the "center-point" to some place else. (Crosshairs-thingy in the screenshot). Moving this point makes my shape rotate around it, but has in my case no effect on other transformations than rotating). Thanks
  8. Hello! after Adobe pulled another stunt (with Lightroom this time) I'm preparing for an Adobe Free Future™! I've come back to Designer (ßeta 1.6/12) — and what I saw made me very, very happy. Cannot wait till I see what you guys do with Publisher! As you have guessed I'm still missing some features before I can ditch Illustrator all together: selecting objects by type/look (see screenshots with Graffix Select Menu) lockable guides and the making guides from objects. Also: split in to grid. overprint on a per object (fill/stroke) base (not only in the swatches). ability to choose a font (and other things) from the contextual menu. Despite its name, it's not very contextual right now. plugins/scripting would make Designer much more powerful of course. See for example what you can do with Python in DrawBot of Nodebox offset path (could be scripted?) more transform options like "transform each", which is very, very handy in Illustrator … Anyway, can't stress enough that you guys already did a fantastic job, making such a powerful app from zero. …without the income of subscription-model ;-). Keep up the good work! — Benjamin
  9. When I take an SVG and scale it down, the exported resulting SVG seems to still use the original path, but applies a transform to scale the path down. Is there a way to cause the path itself to change to the new scaled-down dimension and NOT apply a transform? In other words, I want a new path scaled to the new dimensions, not the original path transformed to the new dimensions. Thanks.
  10. I'm about halfway through my Designer Beta and while I've generally been absolutely in love with it, whipping vague whims up into actual designs with astonishing efficiency, I recently ran into a glaring omission—the ability to perspective-transform shapes without rasterizing them (and even that would appear to require a copy of Photo, which I haven't yet explored). And not in a skew-to-the-side way (which does seem to be readily available in Designer), but in a vanishing point fashion, like the text in the picture below. In what I've googled of the issue, I've seen it spoken of as an established, known limitation, but also didn't see it on MEB's most-requested feature list, so... here I am officially requesting it. My wheelhouse is... abrasive, hard-sell punky type designs, the ability to project shapes towards the viewer is something I frequently employ. I'm not going so far as to call its absence a dealbreaker when my trial expires, but I will say it's looking like it'll be a persisting nuisance having to find workarounds.
  11. A Transform each would be excellent. Similar to AI function, giving options in scale, rotation, skew, etc.
  12. When i want to swap object position, i need to open notepad, copy the x y coordinate, twice. It would be elpful if i can just select 2 object, RMB, and there is a button that let me swap them easily.
  13. I have 2 Documents: - IMAGE A, which size is 1000*1000px and - IMAGE B, which size is 4000*4000px I'm recording 2 macros while working on IMAGE A, which while running makes new layers on top, so at the end of the 2 macros the document has 4 layers (ALL NAMED) - (Pixel) - Composite (Pixel) - Effect (Pixel) - (Background) Basically, the 1st macro duplicates the background layer, runs a filter on it, then makes a composite, making a third layer. On this composite layer I run "Apply Image" and select the Effect image as source layer and it gets applied the composite. Afterwards I drag an external image (logo) on the 4th layer, and run the 2nd macro, which moves the logo 10px to the right. I save my macros, export them, then load them back again to use on my IMAGE B and the next thing happen: 1.- When running "Apply Image" on IMAGE B, i get the same source layer from IMAGE A, and i mean literally the pixel info is saved on the macro and I get a weird blend of 2 different documents. What I'm expecting is the macro to record "Apply layer named 'effect' to the layer 'composite'" 2.- When I get to the logo layer macro, the "transform" step scales to fit the IMAGE B dimensions, so I get a "400% Scale Y", "400% Scale X" "40px Offset X" although I'm only recording to "offset 10 pixels to the right". The expected behavior here is that only the settings I'm changing get recorded and in the same units I'm recording them. I don't want my logo to be scaled, I want its original size to be at 100%, and move it 10px to the right, exactly 10px, not a proportion of the document, otherwise I would specify a percentage value, which I actually noticed it doesn't accept. This behavior gets even worse when I try to run the macro on an image with different aspect ratio, I get weird percentages and values on my transform settings.

    Placing photos

    Hello, I am new to Affinity for the iPad and I am stumped when trying to place an image that is larger than my created document. In Photoshop I used the ‘free transfom’ option to reduce the size of the photo by dragging the handles. Is there a way to do this in Affinity? I just cannot see it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Steve
  15. I enjoy using Affinity Photo on a Mac (OS X 10.12.6). I frequently need to resize a folder of images and run a small macro to place my studio logo on these lower-resolution images for use by the client, post them to social media, etc. I downloaded the update for Affinity Photo v1.6.7, and it's great. But is there still no way to run a batch job on a folder containing both landscape and portrait orientation images and end up with all of them properly resized to the same pixel dimensions without distortion? I saw a discussion about a complex macro for this purpose in another thread. However, this essential function should be included as a basic part of Affinity Photo's capabilities, yes? Has anyone had success with this sort of operation? I really love Affinity Photo and tell all of my pro colleagues about it as a potential replacement for Photoshop, but this simple issue could hold many pros back. Thanks very much for any insight that you developers and experienced users might have.
  16. Hello, I have .pdf file (which was converted from HP plotter's .plt format ) with one big vector image. I need to print this drawing to A4 papers and I need to get exact the same size. PDF-file is relatively big (about 150 x 200 mm) and probably it will takes about 15-20 pages in A4 format.. I've created empty Affinity Designer's file (150 x 200 mm) and dragged pdf to Affinity's window. Then, I've turned the Grid on and resized the image to get the size what I need. I have one test-square (5 x 5 cm) on the image which helped me to get the correct size in Affinity. Now I need to print it but I have 2 problems. 1. How to print this file with correct sizes, in order to get the same 5 x 5 cm square on the paper? (when I try to print I can see only one page which hold she whole document) 2. How to split this document into several pages and re-save it to multipage .pdf where each page will be the part of an original image but in A4 format page? Many thanks. Probably Affinity Designer is not the best solution for this purpose but it was the only software which I have where I was able to resize the image properly.
  17. I'm creating banners and have a very narrow banner (1350 X 348). I pop in the picture and transform the image to where I think I want it. However, after some editing, I want to move the image around a bit, but I'm only working with what I've already transformed the image as. Is there a way to get back the full-sized image or re-transform the image to where I want without losing what I've done (I can go back in the history and readjust, but it seems to lose my future edits)? I'm sure this is quite simple but I'm hoping you can help a newbie out. Checked the videos/tutorials and no answer yet.
  18. Thanks to the Affinity team for having very clean and configurable SVG export! One thing I noticed when not flattening transforms is that some very near zero values are exported inside affine transformation matrices which are no doubt just rounding errors in computations of positions. I've attached an SVG file that shows these, an example of which is: <g transform="matrix(1,-1.22465e-16,-1.22465e-16,-1,288,228)"> I was wondering if an option could be added to clamp these values to zero? Any value below the clamp value forces the value to zero, for example a clamp value of 2e-16 on the above would produce this output: <g transform="matrix(1,0,0,-1,288,228)"> If the rounding error is not from computing the SVG export then another option that could work would be to add a cleanup option that would clamp values in the internal representation Affinity is using. scream-schematic.svg
  19. How do you do the equivalent of "Free Transform" in the iPad AP? I have a box in a 3Q view and need to put an image on one side of it. I am dealing with perspective and masking. I know how to rotate and skew, but I can figure out how to "free transform" for perspective. I have not found any tutorials. So I need your help everyone. Thank you. JG
  20. Hello! Could it be possible to transform only the selected nodes with this transform/bounding box? Selecting nodes and switching to the Move tool only displays a bbox for the whole object, not the selection. Thanks! Best regards Eugen
  21. 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

    Loss of quality

    Hello! I'm Affinity iPad newbie and I have a problem with quality during the transformation. After Rasterise ▸ Rasterise my image lost quality after each move. If I want to cut the selection and transform it, it becomes blurred after one move. What can I do to save quality? I have already posted this question on another topic but received no answer. Sorry if I did something wrong but I can't use the app because of this problem.
  23. Hi guys, I'm having trouble to find a way to fit an image to another's perspective. In photoshop I use the free transform tool. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find something similar here on the iPad. The closest to it is the Shear/Rotation, but that's not flexible enough for my needs. Can anyone please help me? Thank you
  24. Is there a way to transform only selected nodes within a shape? I can select nodes, but I can't figure out how to scale, rotate, or skew them, though I can apply those functions to the entire shape. In Photoshop (for example) I can select any number of nodes within a given shape, then hit Command-T to enter Free Transformation mode. From then on, any transforms will apply only to the nodes I had selected. I've attached an example. I just want to know if this is (yet) possible in AD, as it's something I actually find myself doing quite regularly. (Apologies if I've missed something!)
  25. I have a pixel image, and I have used the Transform tool to reduce the size to 800px high. The visible image is indeed re-sized, but within the original canvas. The remains of the canvas are transparent, and of the original document size. The Transform tool gives the re-sized dimensions. I am trying this out with the aim of writing a macro involving re-sizing the entire image using a formula. How can I resize the canvas as well as the image using a formula?
