Affinity Designer Beta Discussion / Re: Picture Frame ?

Could be a little bug!!  These are the kinds of things that make good tutorials.  They help beginners to learn.  I bet the next version of AD is going to be one heck of a big deal!!

What happens if you resize the heart. Does the text resize with it?

we did this following  rege's excellent instruction  in the paid version

they have made it very easy to do in the beta
make your shape the another shape to use as the subtracted area then  right click on the existing shape and convert to text frame.
then write your stuff

this is soooooooo easy.

This is a feature we had in PI - the arrows part.  You could pick and choose what you wanted for the head and what you wanted for the tail.  Another very NICE addition!!! :whoo:

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:
