  1. Couldn't agree more. I started way back from 1995?so I remember the early days of ps. Affinity is definitely giving adobe a run for their money. Which is beautiful. Someone needs to stop adobe's greed. There's still room for affinity to make the UX better. I agree there's still a bit much manual clicks needed(been using the trial) affinitys not quite there yet for me to leave PS. But in time I think they can get there for sure. I still feel slow working in Affinity photo after 3 days of use. It took me 3 days to get acquainted with blender and I'm happy to say I've finally left autodesk for good. Blender shortcuts and genius UX blew me away. Anyways I'll save this for a Blender forum
  2. Yea it works. But it kinda feels bad to use. I primarily paint with a wacom... And my Rmb is the top most nub.. So I have to crimp my fingers upwards in a claw shape, while dragging. Lol. But that's just me, for mouse users I'd imagine it is fine.
  3. Oh thanks for letting me know. It'd be great if there was a preference toggle, to be able to keep the inheritance for the users that need it. I personally need to inherit values between files. I'm making videogame textures, so I often use the same colors across different files. Having the color toggle reset is frustrating... The eyedropper doesn't work well at the moment too.
  4. When you right mouse button this pops up. Of course you should be in brush mode. I'd much rather prefer how Easy Paint does it. It's holding down CTRL + ALT and LMB drag.. but I don't think this is an easy feature to implement for the Affinity team. Easy Paint
  5. Hello, I'm not sure if this is a feature or a bug. But the color toggles don't inherit from one file to another. Also eyedropper requires you to open the other file, which results in the color not eyedropping in the correct file. Edit: One workaround is to make a swatch table with the colors you need. Something I never used in Photoshop, but I guess the best option with the current workflow in Affinity. I made a video to demonstrate the bug\ feature. It's a bit of a time killer because if I have 10 files that use the same colors, I need to do alot of eye dropping over and over to get the colors I need. Video Thank you
  6. Hello, Sorry one more small feature request. Could we please have the function to copy \ paste layer effects when RMB the layer? edit: For those wondering, the function exists. But you need to first copy the layer in its entirety (by selecting it), after which navigate over to the edit button with the new layer selected and press Paste FX Thank you
  7. Hello, There's been a lengthy discussion about it already. But it's perhaps in the wrong channel? I hope it's ok that I brought it over to the Feature Request channel It would be great for productivity to have a crop to selection function. Thank you
  8. Hello, Sorry for more topics about features. Can we please request a RMB feature for Brushes? It would be good for productivity if RMB opened a quick access to the brush width , opacity, flow and hardness values? Or a Keyboard shortcut like CTRL + ALT + LMB to change the size and hardness of the brushes in real time? Similar to what Photoshop has. Thank you
  9. Hello, This is a bit trivial, but is there a way to change the background color for thumbnails? Perhaps change their size? My eyes aren't as good as they once were and its hard for me to see the images in the thumbnails. Thank you
  10. Yes you are correct! I didn't realize that. Hmmm really need to brain wash my Photoshop workflow from over 20 years... Thank you
  11. Hello, May I ask how to add on top of an existing lasso selection, via keyboard shortcut? I press L and make a selection. After letting go of L and mouse click, the selection is made. Now how can I continue ADDING NEW lasso selections from other parts of the image, appending onto the current selection? I tried pressing SHIFT like in Photoshop, but it just switches over to polygonal lasso selection. I see the buttons on top for NEW, ADD, SUBTRACT, INTERSECT. But I'd like to know if Affinity has shortcuts for it. Hope it makes sense and thanks
  12. Hello, I was wondering if Affinity has the ability to run\support scripts? Similar to Photoshop's .JSX format. I use these external scripts to automate export process and create JSON files. Thank you for the help.
  13. Hi guys thanks for the replies. I can't seem to copy the lasso selections and paste them. I'll try on my own to e what's going on. Thanks for the links
  14. Hello. I'd like to request a feature to lasso a selection -> Copy selection -> Paste that selection. It's a basic feature I use all the time in PS and Easy Paint Sai and would love to have it available in Affinity. I've copied a simple example of how I use Lasso selection + Copy selection --> Paste Selection Thank you.
