  1. So my feature request is for Affinity to remember what you used last and stick to that, and also if you drag an asset to Assets panel, it should ADD the asset even if you do not first have a "new asset category". If having a new asset category is a requirement before adding any asset, then a generic one called Assets should be added automatically. At the moment the process is painful and unintuitive. tx Mark.
  2. Adding Assets by dragging text to Assets panel does not work... See the video attached. ADD_Assets_not_working.mp4
  3. sounds like a good method, but I tried dragging the text to Assets, and the text just got moved See the video attached... I tried RH mouse clicking on the Assets panel, and there is no "add selected object to Assets" (why on earth not!!??) I tried the menu in the Assets panel, nothing there to add assets other than to import from HD... I tried dragging the text layer to the Assets panel (see other video) and this did not work either. Sheesh, this is complex for no good reason! add_object_to_assets_not_working.mp4
  4. It seems far more likely that in the same document or the same day working on a specific project, you'd want consistency... one of the basic tenets of design... and therefore it seems it should be the default - to assume you want to be keeping your customised look consistent rather than changing to a global default repeatedly. I would understand reverting to the global setting on different days or each time the app is closed and reopened, but it's very clunky to have to set your default every time you want to avoid unnecessary repetitive actions. IMO of course
  5. Thanks Walt, that works very well for this project as I am doing so many, but often I will be doing just a few, and it would be much easier if the software simply remembered what you used last time. It could do this AND have this useful default save... so in a session, if you changed the white font to yellow, it would stay yellow for each new document within that session. At least, that's how I think it would be more useful because it's unlikely that I will be using the same settings. But this is useful, I will see where else I can save defaults to better suit my workstyle. Cheers, Mark.
  6. Hello peeps, this drives me nuts. I have to add some text to about 100 photos, and with EVERY one, I have to re-choose the colour I want to use. Surely it should be smart enough to keep the colour the same within a single session, UNLESS you change the colour? I am using the Artistic Type tool but the same problem occurs with the Frame Text tool too. (and probably all other tools with basic adjustable parameters) Thanks, Mark.
  7. Hi, The one thing I miss a lot having dumped Adobe for Davinci / Affinity is the wonderful dynamic linking in Adobe products. It would be GREAT if afdesign files could be used within Resolve and changes made in Affinity would update in Resolve. Pretty please?! tx Mark.
  8. Hi MEB. When I undo ctrl-z (tried both left and right ctrl keys) nothing appears in the history panel. And yet CTRL-z is undo in Keyboard Shortcuts in Preferences! WEEEEIIIRD>>>>> I deleted the Keyboard Shortcuts undo command and put CTRL-Z back in, and now it works. It is identical to how it was... I'm pretty sure its a bug but have no way of repeating it now. Thanks for the input MEB. Previously I had also tried the "Reset" button to reset all shortcuts, though I had not customised any of them, and this did not make any difference. Only deleting the shortcut and recreating it worked.
  9. YES PLEASE! I find it quite annoying that the View (Hand) Tool is the default. I NEVER want to use that... prefer using SPACEBAR-DRAG as the way to move, because it works regardless of which tool you have selected. Forcing the hand is clumsy and a time waster IMO.
  10. Ah, and the undo not undoing? Did you see that on the video? HUH? It seems Ctrl-Z isn't working as undo... I'll look into that. CTRL-Z is the command for undo in the Preferences, but does not work at all... selecting UNDO in the menu does work. (???)
  11. Hi MEB, ok great, thanks. It does seem odd though that a photo, which is pixels, and only pixels, would still need rasterising. I would understand if it was a text layer, or a layer which might not contain pixels only... Anyhow, now I know to rasterise before. TX
  12. Hello peeps, I have made a little video to show what i mean, but basically its this: I have several layers, I select one. Then I click the selection tool, create the selection, press Backspace. The whole layer disappears, not just the selected area. I don't understand how to delete just the selected area. Thanks!

  13. Hi all, Having cancelled my Creative Suite subscription, the only Photoshop thing I miss is its ability to create keyframe animations and output them as APNG or GIF files. This is very useful for me to create little animated buttons for my 360° virtual tours. Thanks, Mark.
  14. Neither is photoshop, but you can create animated PNG's in photoshop... This is the only reason I still NEED photoshop! So YES affinity would do well to add something like this.
  15. This is ok if you already have a series of images for each of your animation frames. There is also good, free websites that offer this too, but what PS can do is to actually allow you to design the the frames, animate objects, output that as separate png files with alpha.
