  1. What is the best way to get a Photoshop plugin to actually work? I've had one that I have used quite frequently over the years in Photoshop, but now that I'm using Affinity Photo, I'm finding this specific plugin doesn't seem to want to do anything. The .8bf file is in the correct folder, but still it doesn't show up under the Filter menu option. Is there something else that is needed to be done to get it to work? It is the Akvis Decorator plugin in case you're curious...
  2. I downloaded the windows trial version and it is very slow to open up 24mp raw files. I checked the forums and saw a discussion about this over a year ago. Is there any windows version updates?
  3. Hi, I have just upgraded to Designer version 1.6.2 for windows. When I move a layer, either a image or a vector, in the background, it automatically jumps to the front of the art board. This happens when I use the mouse AND the directional arrows on my keyboard. Is there a setting that I am missing or is it a bug?
  4. I just plugged in a new keyboard into my Windows desktop machine and the shortcut keys don't work properly. The basic shortcuts - ie. Cntrl+O - seem to work but if I try to use the tools shortcuts they don't work unless I press Ctrl + (shortcut key) repeatedly. I also noted they work if I press the Spacebar + (shortcut key). I tried reverting back to the original keyboard which worked fine when I installed Affinity Photo and now it's exhibiting the same behavior. I'm thinking it's a Windows issue, I've looked at the keyboard settings and looked into drivers but have not come up with anything to solve the problem. Has anybody encountered this or can can anybody help?
  5. Team - I would like to buy Affinity Designer through the Microsoft Store since I have Microsoft Rewards to use but this is a gift. Do I apply the rewards, buy the software and then I can share the license as a gift? Thanks
  6. I would like to have a snapping and alignment window so that i don't need to always drag my cursor up to access them. I think it could increase workflow for some people. And, other than that, I would like to see improvement to the snapping interface because it looks like a block of text. Some visual representation would be nice
  7. As I've seen in many videos, the Mac version of Photo shows the blend modes as a complete list, all items are visble at once. Still without separators like in some competitor's product but at least you get a complete overview of all available blend modes. The Windows version is different here, it shows a drop down list with a vertical scroll bar. So it is always harder to find the desired blend mode. It would be really nice to have the same completely visible Mac-kind of list in the Windows version of Photo too. Speaking of the blend mode list, some separators for the different blend mode groups would come in handy as well.
  8. I'm fairly new to Affinity Photo and I've been figuring out how to do the things I learned in Photoshop in Affinity. One thing I had in CS6 was a macro that cropped an image, confirmed the crop, then finished by saving the image. I have figured out how to make most of my original macro, but adding 'Save' doesn't seem to be an option. If I stop the recording, save becomes an option again. Is this possible with Affinity Photo, or is there an alternative option for this?
  9. From looking around it sounds like once you buy Affinity Designer you can install it on as many computers as you wish, just you can only use it on a single computer at a time. This is great because I have multiple computers that I work on. Where there might be a problem is I work both on Windows and on Mac. So Ideally an license would also be cross-platform. From what I can tell though this is not the case, I would have to buy a license for Windows and a separate license for Mac. Is this correct?
  10. Greetings from México! I share my Windows Vista logo. Windows Vista Logo.afdesign Windows Vista Logo.svg
  11. This is my first post. I hope this is the right place to report the following bug. System: Windows 7 SP1, German Version: Affinity Designer --- I often use Roboto Light as a base font for web design. I did a screen design using several art and box texts with font Roboto Light. In AD everything looked fine. Also when exporting the screenshots to JPG or TIFF. But when i tried to export to PDF (all PDF presets) all the texts that use Roboto Light are completely broken showing messed up chars. I attached a simple AD testfile and the exported PDF/X-3 in which I reproduced the failure. bug_text-roboto-light-pdf-export_1-1.afdesign bug_text-roboto-light-pdf-export_1-1_x-3.pdf JPG export directly from AD: Screenshot PDF/X-3 opended in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC: If i check the PDF properties with Acrobat Pro DC i can see that all fonts seem to be embedded with subsets. Choosing another font (e.g. Arial, Roboto Regular, Droid Sans, ...) will export all these texts correctly. Is this an encoding / subsetting problem? I have this font installed in Windows: ROBOTO-LIGHT_1.TTF
  12. I am trying to stitch a panorama with Affinity Photo, but have encountered some issues. When I stitch the image, it is done so incorrectly. Most of the photos I add aren't aligned properly and this has happened in multiple projects. I usually use use PTGui to do this, and it has a feature for manually adding control points. How do I do this in Affinity? I've done some digging and can't seem to find any advanced stitching options. Any help is appreciated.
  13. brushes

    About The Box Set is hundreds of vector and raster brushes made for Affinity Photo & Designer. Each brush was handmade using real materials scanned at high resolutions and crafted to simulate real media. I wanted the origin of the brushes to have a heritage of the materials they are simulating. Scanning pools of watercolor, swatches of paint, and stipples of charcoal contributed to creating brushes with the same idiosyncratic material magic. My only request is that you take these brushes, with their clever names, as suggestions. They work superbly out of the box, but I strongly encourage you to adjust the sliders, rearrange or remove the textures, and discover how they can suit your hand(s). Make. Discover. Repeat. Cheers and happy art making, -Jef (WREN) RASTER BRUSHES For use in Affinity Photo and Designer. The blending brush in the Oil Set is the only one exclusive to Affinity Photo. DRAFTING INK OIL Oil Brush Dynamics Most oil brushes have blending built into pen pressure. With a single brush and hue you can adjust the luminosity of the stroke- giving it an oily blend. The Brush's color in the example above is the color of the background. A normal pressure gives you the hue without any lightening or darkening.

  14. Hi I am using Affinity Photo on my mac, windows and iPad. I also use iCloud, and in my documents folder there is an Affinity Photo folder. How can I set Affinity on iPad to save my projects there so I can share them across devices?
  15. Hi I recently have a heatmap that I wanted to edit in affinity designer. But when i inserted the image into affinity designer (drag and release), it loses its color dynamic range. Here is what it looks like in windows photo And in affinity designer: I suspect this is due to color management issues. Anyone has the same issue?
  16. I'm trying to use Affinity Photo to make a curves adjustment layer for digital negatives that will be used in a traditional darkroom process. I need to be able to compensate for the response curves of the medium (e.g. photographic paper, cyanotype) I will be contact printing the negative to. I can calculate the curve but I can't find a way of telling Affinity Photo to make an adjustment curve where input value 5 maps to output value 20, input value 16 maps to output 32, etc. as is possible in Photoshop. I'd be happy to have a way to create a preset in the text file or something if that is possible as the curve would be the same for all images made into negatives and darkroom printed to the same medium. Any ideas? Martin
  17. Hi, I'm new to this place...hope somebody can help me Since the new Windows update was installed, Affinity refuses to save my projects, it always says that there isn't enough memory, but there over 300gb of free disk I don't see a reason to this. This started as I tried to save a project, which I started out with a stack of pictures, and since then I can't save any of my projects. Sombody got an idea how to fix this?
  18. Hi I just switched from a Mac to a Windows laptop and I had bought Affinity Photo on the Mac App Store last year. How can I switch to the Windows version?
  19. Please Serefteam, create in AP the Option to Change the layer thumbnailsize larger. Regards Armin
  20. Hey there community! I've got two bugs right now I assume. First one: if I try to assign the Alt+Backspace command to the "Fill" option it can't record the Backspace for me. It only says Alt+ and then waiting for input. At first I thought it's because the exact same shortcut is assigned to the "Inpaint" option, but even after removing it from there it does not record any other "function"-keys (?) except for numbers and letters, as far as I can tell. Second bug is this one: I'd like to assign , (comma) and . (point/full stop) to any tool that offers the option of changing the brush size via key-input. So what I thought would work is applying those keys to one random tool and check the box "Apply to all", but it's not working. In fact this box does nothing for me right now. A work around for me would be the option of pressing the Alt+Ctrl key and drag, similar to how it's working on Mac, but that doesn't work for me either – maybe I got the wrong buttons and someone can tell me wich ones to press actually to make it work? Edit: I'm working with a german-layout-keyboard btw. Greetings Dennis
  21. Helllo, guys. I'm new to the fórum and I'm using Affinity Designer since the beta for Windows. Since the beta I'm having trouble handling new fonts. Seriously, from update to update the fonts just don't work. I have to unninstall everything, losing my color palletes because we don't have na export tool. Today I've got very frustrated by wanting to use a very especific font from Google Fonts and I can't. I can't use Lato. I can't seem to find the reason why this is happening. Sometimes unninstalling Works, sometimes not. I've searched for this problem in other places, didn't find much. Nobody seems to be with this issue, but me. Do you guys have any idea why this is happening? I already tried launching the app with administrator rights, as well. No good.
  22. I am having continuous inconsistent buggy behavior when it comes to symbol behavior. These issues have been there since launch, some files I work on have no problems, the current file has tons. Sometimes the sync option work for symbols and sometimes it does not. When I create an object in a symbol (sync off) designer creates multiple copies of that object in a symbol. I am getting frequent crashes (probably due to the last problem mentioned). When I copy symbols it sometimes comes out as a (Layer) or a (Symbol) in the layers panel. I never know if the symbol will be able to be edited from it's instance or if it's just a detached layer. I have included the file I am currently working on. Full-Lineup.afdesign

  24. I'm aware that the focus of development has not been on essential workflow elements but I seriously beg you to have a look at some of the basic daily work topics for daily work users (it's not features that differentiates AP from PS ... it's workflow!) Taking a closer look at the windows handling: Dragging a window from the docked position to a free floating position leaves the windowns in XXL size instead of adjusting it to the current document size - it's a nightmare! Is there a chance to center the document within an optimised size of the window adapting to the current size of the document (within the current zoom state)? The situation gets even worse since the handles for adjusting the windwsize are active in such a small region that it's extremely hard to resize a window to the desired size. There's probably 2 pixel space that makes the cursor change from horizontal to diagonal and vertical resizing (or simply clicking in an unused space) ... why don't you make handling easier? Why don't you automatically center the document within a given window but leave it to the user to center the document with much effort? I would as well appreciate a button that releases all existing documents from a docked position to a free flaoting position, automatically rezising and cerntering them - what an easy programming task but a big improvement for the users ...if you want to be competitive (you got the features), start with meeting the basic handling requirements! Cheers, Timo
