    DMayrshire got a reaction from Frozen Death Knight in Small feature request: "remember settings" for refine Selection dialog   
    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.

    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.

    Hi All,
    Unfortunately, we are hearing many stories from the creative community about how they are being severely impacted by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We know we can’t solve a lot of these problems, but we do want to try to offer as much support as possible.
    That’s why we’re announcing three measures that we've just put in place. They are:
    A new 90-day free trial of the Mac and Windows versions of the whole Affinity suite A 50% discount for those who would rather buy and keep the apps on Mac, Windows and iPad A pledge to engage more than 100 freelance creatives for work, spending the equivalent of our annual commissioning budget in the next three months (more details of this will be announced next week). The introduction of the 90-day free trial and deeply discounted pricing is done in the hope that this will make life a little easier for people who rely on creative software to make a living, but may be stuck at home without their usual tools, or for students who might not have access to their Affinity apps on their personal devices. In addition, by increasing our spend on commissioning work from freelancers we can also put some extra money into a part of the industry which will be particularly affected. 
    We plan to make the free trial and additional discount available until 20 April, but of course we will continue to review the situation as time goes on.
    We have put posts on Facebook and Twitter about what we are doing if it's something you would like to share.
    We're now all working from home
    In terms of the team here, we have all vacated our Nottingham offices and are now working from home. Naturally this is causing us some disruption, but we continue to type code and expect to carry on making good progress with our development efforts. 
    Support is a bit trickier though. Firstly, we can’t accept inbound telephone calls right now, and there are also going to be challenges for our staff to work their normal full-time hours – especially with imminent school closures in the UK. We’re obviously going to do our very best but hope you will understand if we are not as fast to respond to email as usual.
    Of course, if a question you have is something which could be answered by our community, then we’d also greatly appreciate if you put that here on the forum rather than contact us directly. It would definitely help us out a lot. 
    Frankly it’s hard to know what to say or do in this unprecedented situation. But more than anything else, we want to use this opportunity to wish good health to you and your loved ones at this incredibly difficult time.
    All the very best,
    Ash

    DMayrshire got a reaction from Chris B in Inpainting brush lag in 1.7.2.471   
    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.

    DMayrshire got a reaction from martinch in Please preserve more tool settings from one use to the next   
    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.

    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.
