  1. Didn't see that - good to know the fixes are already in hand - thank you Walt!
  2. Hi, V1.9.0 seems to have broken Focus Merge rather badly for me. When I try a merge of 4 tiffs (produced by straight conversion from EOS R cr3 to tiff via C1), the process starts smoothly but then I see a mostly black frame with random colored blocks. When the process completes the result is a fully black frame, and one of the images in the stack is also incorrectly shown as a black frame. If I close this failed merge and try to open one of the tiffs on its own, the tiff looks like its opacity or contrast has been dramatically reduced, and the Affinity Photo UI itself starts to show random colored corruption, e.g. the opacity slider has colored garbage inside it. I tried uninstalling then re-installing 1.9, with the same result. I then uninstalled and reinstalled 1.8.5, and everything was OK again; I got a perfect merge just as I'd expect. Never had anything like this with 1.8.5 or any previous versions. Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, 10.0.19041 Build 19041 Geforce GTX 1050 (driver 431.70) 16 GB RAM (maxes out at 11gb in use during the merge) i5-6600 In all the other work I do my system is rock-solid stable; no crashes, no weirdness of any kind. The files I was merging can be accessed here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xEl03vJhGBGuFSpDFgdl1_jLX-TWaqcC/view?usp=sharing If there's anything else I can provide to help with this, please let me know.
  3. Well done Serif. The software you produce is stunningly good even at the normal price. I think when we all come through this you'll find that your army of fans has grown considerably. Best wishes to you all.
  4. Hi Chris - this is embarrassing but today I can't reproduce the issue. I've tried a re-edit of the files that showed the behavior the most, and it's just not happening. Maybe there was something going on with my machine on the previous two days that I didn't know about, or maybe playing around with the max undo level (Performance tab, Preferences screen) made a difference - something I tried half way through yesterday's editing session. Either way, AP is back to its normal responsive self, so please disregard this thread.
  5. Since upgrading to the new version I'm seeing an annoying drop in responsiveness when using the Inpainting brush. The laggy behavior shows up after a only few small touchups. No changes to my system since the last edit with the previous version, stacks of unused RAM available. Win 10 Pro x64 1903. Edit: Seems to pass once AP has been open a while.
  6. I'm loving 1.7 but having just worked through a lot of repetitive edits I'd really like to have AP retain more settings between sessions for commonly used tools, e.g. when I switch to the freehand selection tool, I'd love it to remember that last time I was using say polygonal or magnetic mode when I invoke frequency separation, I'd prefer it to remember my radius and other settings These are small things I know, but they would streamline the editing process appreciably.
  7. Just want to say a big thank you for this update! I got my AP license just over a month ago and since then I've been using it in tandem with my old copy of CS5, gradually transitioning more and more towards AP, but I would occasionally get hit by unexpected slow-downs that pushed me back into CS5. Since I updated to 1.7 I haven't experienced any of these problems - it's consistently responsive and just feels more solid throughout. In short, it's now an absolute joy to use, a truly outstanding piece of software in all respects. Well done to the development team and again, thank you.
  8. When doing lots of similar selection-based edits (e.g. for product shots) it would be nice to have a "remember settings" option in the Refine Selection dialog, as is provided by Photoshop. Right now I'm using a macro recorder to fire frequently used values into the fields, but it would be better if Affinity had the option to remember the most recently used values itself.
