Affinity Designer Beta Discussion / Re: Picture Frame ?
« Last post by MaryLou on March 16, 2019, 02:52:04 pm »
You can move the picture around once it's inserted.  Just go to the layer's panel and select the picture.  It works the same way as clipping. 

They have taken this straight out of PagePlus!  It uses the same terminology except for the text and they use "convert to shape text".   I'm so glad to see these two features because I use them a LOT in my newsletter!! 

The other thing I use most is convert to curves.  In our newsletter, if I want to use a font that's not one the printers will have, I can convert to curves and it will no longer be considered as a font. Therefore, it will print exactly as I want it. I can also convert the text to a picture and don't have to worry about the font.

I am liking the new things I'm seeing in AD!!  And, am so happy they are giving us some of the nice features that we have in their old Serif programs!  I am a happy camper!!   :cancan: :cancan: :cancan:

AD Discussion / Re: Vector lines strait and curved stuff
« Last post by Rege on March 16, 2019, 05:58:44 am »
Teejay, fortunately the "Expand Stroke" function exists!
In my screenshot, I drew the red curve line and then I drew a blue straight line below it.
Then I added two knots to the blue line at about the two points where the red curve changes direction. Then I modified the line using the handles of the nodes to make it look like the red curve.
The result may seem satisfactory but I am sure that the gap between the two curves is not really the same over their entire length.

AD Discussion / Re:Bad Treament at AD forum -

Basically, I agree with you, but maybe I'm not expressing myself well.
When I used Illustrator 9, I thought it was wonderful and yet it was far from having all the tools it later received. So I didn't miss these tools. When I look at it now I wonder how I could have done anything with it and yet I was more creative than now.
Now, many years later, I miss these tools that have since been added to other software in Designer. I just think that SERIF could have done more in-depth Beta tests internally before launching this product, which still lacks basic functions.
Nevertheless, AD is already a very good software that is easy to use and will continue to improve like its competitors, although it will certainly still lag a little behind them if their development team remains small.

MaryLou, unlike two straight lines, the displacement of one of the curved lines causes the gap between the two lines to vary.

Couldn't you simply draw one curved line and once it's exactly the way you want it, duplicate it and move it over a bit?
