To make transparent a comic bubble on AD


Recommended Posts

Hi @Nadar,

Are you looking for a simple comic bubble like the below?

There's a Callout Ellipse shape on the toolbar that can be drawn, this can then be made transparent by changing the Opacity setting of the object on the layers panel or using the transparency tool to create a gradient.

Thanks Nathan¬†ūüėČ
I found the transparency tool in Affinity Designer (wich is not in Affinty Photo)

But If I use the opacity cursor in the layer : all the shape disapear…

How do yo do that ?

Are you using one of the shape tools, did you draw it yourself, or have you imported it from somewhere else?

Whichever it is, you don't use the Opacity tool or need to change the layer opacity. But how you do it depends on whether it is a vector shape or a pixel image.

A screenshot of your application workspace, with your call-out bubble selected, might be useful to help us see what you're seeing.

But in general, you should find the Fill setting on the Context Toolbar:

In that case all you need to do is set the fill to transparent.

My mistake, I thought the intention was to make the entire object transparent rather than just the fill area.
