Hee guys,


I am new here, fairly new to the Affinity Designer program. I'm running into a little problem over here about brushes. When I'm in pixel mode and try to change the hardness of my brush into a softer brush, the brush won't change hardness..


Anyone got a tip for me?


Thanks in advance

Thanks for the welcome  :)

I was using the context toolbar. I've tried various options of the hardness which didn't do the trick. Finally a simple reboot of AD helped me out.

(EDIT - Issue has been solved! It was surely my mistake. Thanks a lot! This is a very good program!)


Hi. I just acquired Affinity Designer and I'm having the same issue on pixel persona. I re-downloaded the installer, and re-installed program and the same thing happens. The spray paint has a dotted pattern but no soft edge as in the brush icon or a hard edge with spaces circles (I'm attaching a screenshot)

I'm on a late 2013 iMac on El Capitan OS, Wacom Intuos tablet.

Is this  how those brushes should look? Thanks a lot! I'm liking this program a lot! I just hope this can be fixed.
