Pattern repeat for Textile designers

Recommended Posts

I really need to see the pattern making tool as on adobe illustrator. 
There it is simply, Object, pattern, make.   This allows you to see the whole pattern. A further drop down shows the horizontal and vertical repeats and allows you do set 1/2 blocks and different repeats.  This would be Extremely helpful if  / when you added this. Along with image trace.....

I have been using All the serif programmes for 25+ years and find them so intuitive.

Please add the pattern repeat soon !!

Thanks.

That is exactly why I'm thinking of moving from Gravit Designer to buy Affinity Designer. I'm still on the trial period and I am watching tutorials to find out if I can successfully use Affinity Designer to design all types and styles of repeat patterns. 

I have heard of the pattern tool in AI and have seen this requested for a while now but it appears it has been ignored. I'm new to AD and it appears suggestions, requests are ignored by Affinity Designer- not encouraging! However I do hope they add this pattern tool.

I'll compare tutorials of both and decide if I'll bother buying AD especially if they aren't responding to requests or suggestions!

Hello @pyxelles,

welcome to the forum.

Since you are new here at the forum I want to tell you from my expirience of reading and posting here for some time. The company does read the requests and I have seen many cases that proof that they do listen and they do not ignore requests. E.g. TGA format was introduced some time ago and with the latest beta version of Publisher the introduced an asked for feature called 'Collect Resources'.

It will also be very easy for you to find threads about features that were requested for a long time. This cannot be denied. But this is not due to the fact that Serif does not listen to their users.

Cheers,
d.

Yes - I need to see pattern repeat feature before I can buy this software.  It seems to be intuitive and a bit less complicated to use for my needs.  Please let me know when Pattern Repeat feature is available.  In the meantime, I will consider using the trial version.  Thanks.

I use Symbols in Designer to make patterns. Set up a template once and for all, and that makes it fairly straight forward working with repeating patterns. Unless I simply misunderstand your request.

There are excellent Youtube tutorials about setting up a pattern template using Symbols.

Same Here. Need the Pattern Repeat Feature desperately!

 

To anyone who posted in this thread you might be interested to watch (or read) this elaborate tutorial on creating patterns in AD:

https://affinityspotlight.com/article/create-repeat-patterns-with-a-live-pattern-preview-in-affinity-designer-for-ipad/

It was just recently published over at Affinity Spotlight and is really worth checking out :)
