Is there some sort of manual for us that are completely new to AD and has no knowledge of AI etc. either? I am trying to watch the many videos on youtube, but I find the background music on most of them seriously interfering and I find no continuity. There's just so overwhealmingly many things here that I don't understand.

Hi MalinKOslo

 

Welcome to Affinity Forums.

Have you checked the Tutorials section? There's already a nice number of video tutorials available on Vimeo. And the Help in the program is quite good. If you find any problem you can always ask in the forum too. There's always someone willing to help   ^_^

Thanks! The problem with searching is that since I don't know what things are called, it's hard to find. And english is not my first language either.

 

Regarding the videos, I need spoken aid, only music is not enough for me. I wish to know why you choose this over that and why certain tools are not visible unless such and so. Only then can I learn why I should do things, and how to do them efficient and correct. 

 

What I need to learn pretty quick is how to use a scanned, quite detailed drawing that I made and make it into a design ready for print. I need my to track the lines of my own design, right now I don't need the premade shapes and such (unless they by any chance I do not know make things easier for me). I'd appreciate all specific tips and do's and don'ts.  

 

So believe me, I am grateful. And I bought the program today, so I am not giving up. :)

Hi welcome to the forum! Just to elaborate on what MEB said...

 

Check out the CartoonMike tutorial. It started off here:

https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/1420-pen-power/?hl=pumpkin&p=6052

 

Which led to this:

https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/2443-the-pumpkin-tutorial/?hl=pumpkin

 

and the end result ended up here:

Enjoy

Also, from the main menu at the top of the screen, select Help > Affinity Designer Help. You get a list of contents on the left you can peruse like a manual. It is also searchable but this does not always produce comprehensive results (this is not particular to Designer).
