Hi there.


I tried to draw sth with Affinity Designer. When I choose a brush from the menu on the right, than use Brush or Pen to draw sth it does not looks like the Brush I choose.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for posting this basic question. I, too, had this same problem after I had downloaded the new brushes. The only brush strokes I could create were determined by the brush setting on the top of the window, not on the right side "Studio" view. Since I was just playing with various settings, I didn't resolve this issue.


Any support staff out there?

Hi jkehoe,


The brushes that you are using have pressure and opacity support for tablets so if you are using a mouse you will not get the same affect as in the brush preview which is based off a pressure stroke.
