Line stroke style - problems getting Texture option to work

Recommended Posts

In the Affinity Photo Stroke Panel, it says ' Style—Select a line style button to change how the line is drawn. Choose from None, Solid Line Style, Dash Line Style, and Texture Line Style, respectively. The last option applies the currently selected brush in the Brushes panel to the stroke. '

I'm having trouble getting the Pen tool to use the Texture option in using the current brush.

Any tips?

Thanks.

Hi dmstraker,

You've stated Photo but linked to the Help in Designer... So i'm little confused as to which app but i'll offer an answer for both apps :) 

Tested this in Designer and it's appling the texture to my Pen curve i've drawn.  What happens when you try?

Also tried this using the texture option in Photo but it didn't work but that's because to add a textured stroke to a line/curve you need a vector brush stroke. Photo only uses raster brushes, to apply a textured stroke to a curve you really need Designer.

Oops. Wrong help system. I'm using Affinity Photo, latest beta.

So I'm wondering what the Texture option in AP should do.

So having the Texture icon in the stroke context options is a bug?
