Is it possible in Affinity Photo to create (or even better import) .pat files as in Photoshop?


I have a library created on a windows machine in Photoshop within .pat file.  

I use this when I wish to 'fill' a selected area.  

Is it posible to do this with Affinity Photo?


I hope my question is clear but if not please ask and I will try to explain myself better.


Thank you for reading

Hi DerbyLad,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

No, currently Affinity Photo cannot create or import .pat files.

You can however use the Gradient Tool to fill a shape with a pattern, changing the Type dropdown in the context toolbar to Bitmap. Not sure if this helps.

I'm moving this thread to the Feature Requests section.
