AI multiple strokes and fills

Recommended Posts

AI has an interesting feature of adding multiple strokes to an objects with different line weights, line attributes, opacity, and so on. Simmilar to that you can fill the object with more than one color and mix them with changing the opacity.

Is there such feature in Designer or, if not, do you have in mind to add it?

I'm wondering about this capability, too.  Is this something that has already been added?  And, if so, are there any limitations?  Does it work on vector or bitmap elements, etc.?

 

Thanks!

Hi rvgeeks,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

No, this is not available yet. It still may take a little until it's ready for release.

Thanks, MEB.  I look forward to this feature making it into production!

YES, YES! Please add this! For all of the gripes I have with Illustrator (and I have a lot), the Appearance Panel is something that they definitely got right - and not just for multiple strokes of varying weights, but for multiple fills with different opacities & blending modes and for fill/stroke-independent effects. When, for example, you need a semi-transparent, multiplying gradient-fill on top of a semi-transparent, screen pattern-fill on top of an opaque solid-fill to get the effect you're looking for, it can really save you a headache to need only 1 object per instance rather than 3 grouped together. Can't wait to see what you all at Serif come up with. Thanks!

Hi martinus,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

As far as i know this is not ready yet but it's on the roadmap so should be implemented at some point.

https://designer.io/Gravit already does it and it's free and on-line. I payed for both Designer and Photo and on both platforms (MacOS and Windows). Gravit is web based and it supports Linux and ChromeOS. Hope you will take this as stimulation and not for critical purpose.

Apart from this, Affinity has done great products, but lately is sleeping a bit.

We need to be comforted about our choice to move apart from Adobe toward Affinity.

Sincerely.

Gravit is coming strong from behind... has lots of features that AI has and which are still missing from AD. The only problem with Gravit is the performance which is awful specially when working with multiple artboards and bitmap photos. This is where AD shines, the performance is awesome even in Windows and copes really well with tons of artboards and many objects.

Because of the missing multiple fills and strokes I'm still forced to use AI as my main logo design tool.
