  1. Alright, I understand now. I tried rasterizing the pixel layer and the brush went back to its normal look. Is there a way to rasterize the Quick Mask as well? If I can make any conclusion out of this, it's that the Move Tool really isn't made for adjusting selections, and there isn't any other alternative for that in A.Photo, so I'll just stick to Affinity Designer.
  2. Alright, see attachment. What do those operations look like on your end? Same? 2019-05-30 12-30-05.flv
  3. So I disconnected the external display, set main display to 100% scaling then rebooted, and the issue is still present. I also tried to set the main display to 1080p and 100%; it made no difference. I played around with selections and transforms, and the issue really appears when I start with a small selection then transform it in a much bigger one. If I start with a large selection and only transform it a bit, like add a few pixels in height and width, then I don't see the brush being pixelated.
  4. The main display is 3240 x 2160 at 200% scaling. The external monitor is 1080p at 100% scaling.
  5. I detached the external monitor and rebooted just to be sure, but I still get the same behavior working with the Surface's display only.
  6. I appreciate that you can do that, and as I tried it just now, I discovered that you can scroll-zoom while dragging the selection, which is convenient. I don't know however that this is the best way to do it for big selections; it doesn't feel as good as just transforming the initial selection. I initially tried it that way because I read it from here: I still think the transform messing with the whole layer is either odd at best, or a bug at worst. I'd like to hear what a developer has to say about this, or hear it from an Affinity official at least. Anyhow, thanks for your answers Carl.
  7. 2 rectangles at minimum, yes. But when I make the first (to select the whole Excel window), I need to be zoomed out, and it's difficult to be pixel precise at that zoom level. That is, to select precisely around the edges of the window. So I make a gross selection first, then adjust it (with transform operations) or add more rectangular selections to it at a more workable zoom level.
  8. @carl123 Oh, so this is expected behavior you think? The transform affects the whole layer, not just the selection? The workaround I found was to go instead in Affinity Designer and create a mask out of combined rectangles, which is less annoying than adding many rectangular selections together, just to avoid resizing a single rectangular selection.
  9. I did try with the Beta as well. The bug is still there, and the brush still becomes weird after the transform operation. Before transform After transform
  10. @GabrielM Hi! My Affinity Photo installation is fresh from yesterday, but nonetheless I renamed that folder and the bug still occurs. It really seems like a resolution issue in Quick Mask mode, so this might be tricky to reproduce on your end. I'm attaching two pictures of the same brush, but one in normal mode and the other in Quick Mask mode. Normal mode, brush looks fine. Quick Mask mode, brush looks pixelated. As if the resolution of the Quick Mask was much lower. Finally, another screenshot of Quick Mask when nothing is selected yet, and I haven't messed with selection adjustments, etc. Brush looks fine.
  11. Ah well it's most likely a problem with my environment. With a multi monitors setup, a high dpi laptop, and a new version of Windows, I'm kind of asking for trouble. Thanks for your help.
  12. The problem is that, even if I do so, my additive selection will behave oddly. I attached two pictures of what you described, ie. I exited Quick Mask mode to perform the last selection. Before.png is the very moment before I release Mouse-LeftClick to complete the selection. After.png is the resulting selection. Why does it behave this way? Why is the resulting selection not exactly what I selected before releasing the mouse? I'm not seeing this behavior if I never go into Quick Mask, eg. if I grossly select the whole window using the Marquee tool, then select the bottom part of the contextmenu. After.png Before.png
  13. I used the Quick Mask to adjust my inital selection, because I couldn't be pixel-precise with it. I needed to zoom to the opposite corner. Is there a different way to adjust the initial selection without the Quick Mask? The additive selection is working correctly if I don't want to switch to the Quick Mask, but still, if I can't adjust my selections...
  14. Reproduced in Affinity Photo and Surface Book 2, Windows 10 v1903, build 18362.116. I'm working on an external monitor, a Dell 27in, 1080p., resolution set to 1080p, 100% scaling. I'm trying the select an object out of its background; I may not use the most efficient method since I'm a newbie. The object is an excel window that I screenshoted using the snipping tool; I attached the screenshot ("3-Refresh.png) to this post. Use Rectangular Marquee tool to start selecting the window. Switch to Quick Mask (Q). Use Move Tool to adjust the selection to the whole window. Use Rectangular Marquee tool to create a new selection for the part of the context menu that's out of the window. Once the selection is adjusted, I try the following: Edit > Fill, tick Custom Color (White), then click Apply. After step 5, the result of the fill is offsetted; it's like the fill didn't respect the selection I made. Out of curiosity, I then tried to use a brush to paint over the remaining "red" within my selection, but the brush is inexplicably grossly pixelated (I included the screenshot "OddBrush.png" to show what it looked like, though the brush cursor isn't visible; it's a circle). I included a video as well of my reproduction steps, "2019-05-22 15-47-12.flv". 2019-05-22 15-47-12.flv
