    eobet reacted to JET_Affinity in [AD] Isolation Mode   
    For perspective:
    Illustrator's "isolation mode" did not appear until CS3 (2007). If it's such a 'deal breaking, bedrock essential basic' feature (just like everyone's pet feature request is), how did anyone use Adobe Illustrator for the two prior decades?
    I paid $50 for Affinity Designer. You know how much money I spent on Adobe Illustrator prior to 2007?
    My use of Illustrator's Isolation Mode is only occasional. And I certainly don't judge any program that doesn't have something like it "unusable."

    Hi robinp,
    Serif don't give etas for any specific feature (as explained several times elsewhere). There's no "prevarication" as there's no commitment with any dates (precisely to avoid even more frustration if they aren't met) among other reasons. I'm sorry if this is not enough for you but it's all I can provide.

    You can do this by grouping two circles and going under Layer effects and apply outline.

    eobet got a reaction from IPv6 in Photoshop export: hidden layers are empty in PSD   
    Ok... but leaving layers empty isn't even acceptable for a one way trip... quite an annoying issue (with seemingly a simple fix) to have been left in for apparently almost a year now?

    I also came to this forum looking for this feature. I used it a lot in Photoshop, because we export depth maps from 3D renders, so it's nice to be able to just do two clicks inside the actual render to set the range we want.

    eobet reacted to Sean P in Erratic behavior when zoomed in + second view   
    Thank you very much for the video and file. I've now reproduced this and it looks like it is being caused by the 'Snap to geometry of selected curve' option on the context toolbar. I believe it is using the zoom level settings of the smaller window you've just come out from when trying to snap, and not the one of the higher zoom. Quickly adjusting the zoom of the zoomed in part will correct it.

    I'll get this passed on to development. Thanks for your perseverance!

    I don't think your answer to question 2 is correct.
    I think he wants the perspective tool.
    The perspective tool in Photoshop is pretty restrictive, but in Affinity, it behaves like the distort tool (which is also called "free transform" in newer versions of Photoshop).

    eobet reacted to Jeremy Bohn in The selection tool is driving me insane   
    To clarify, I mean in the Layers panel there isn't anything that's very helpful. I never would have thought to look elsewhere for this information. Over time, a person can learn to tell the difference. I can see the difference now, but when I was a new user I had no idea and was frustrated to the point of no longer using the app. And even now that I know, I often forget about the differences. And that's my point R C-R - you keep trying to justify why things work the way they do and I'm telling you it's too confusing for a lot of new users. I'm not saying they need to change the layer types but need to do more to explain the 2 types (image/pixel) because they look almost exactly the same. The fact that the online Help does not mention the layer types where it needs to (for instance, my Flood Select example) highlights the fact that Serif is only thinking from an experienced position, and not the new user or Photoshop user, and frustrated users might give up and Serif loses a customer.
    P.S. side note: I also don't understand why it's called "Rasterize" in the Layers panel. This is because an image is already raster information. I think Rasterize is the wrong term. Also, after I've rasterized a layer, why is the command still available? The command should be dimmed out once I've already used it on a particular layer. I know, I know, this is a whole other topic but this all just adds to the confusion.

    Same here. Saying and doing nothing makes the user believe that the program isn't working correctly.
    I see zero reason why selecting a piece of an image layer for copying and pasting wouldn't work. Just rasterize the result. Deleting a piece of an image layer should just automatically create a mask with that piece masked out. That would not only do what the user expected it to do, but it will also implicitly teach the user about the difference between an image and a pixel layer (and remind an experienced user who might forget in a hurry, because the label is very small)!

    I would prefer these would happen as expected, behind the scenes, so that you could copy or cut a selection from image layer. Now, should the result be in document dpi or layer dpi? Layer dpi I would think..

    I agree with summersara that something has to be done. At the very least, if a certain tool will not work with the layer in it's current form, the tool should either be not selectable or greyed out, or if you attempt to use a tool on the layer it could tell you it's not supported instead of doing NOTHING. This is what I found confusing. It does nothing, leaving you to think that it's broken.

    Oh, it doesn't work on an image layer? It has to be pixel?
    Still, I don't think the situation above should ever be allowed to happen...

    eobet reacted to ForestHymn in "ALT" or "CTRL" - FAST Color Picker Shortcut + Fixed Position Option For Color Triangle   
    Hello Affinity Photo development team,
    I'm a newbie to your program, but have worked as a digital illustrator for several years.
    Affinity Photo is a really nice program - a nice alternative to Photoshop.
    It could be a great program for digital illustrators and painters... But it is missing a critical option for higher speed efficiency: a fast color picker option by pressing "Ctrl" or "Alt"
    This is present in Photoshop, Corel Painter, Krita, OpenCanvas, PaintStorm Studio, etc. 
    It is very important to painters to be able to access the color picker quickly. When you hold down "Ctrl" or "Alt" and click on the color - it color picks it. Then when you let go of the "Ctrl" or "Alt" key, it goes back to the tool you were using before. When you have to switch between brush and color picker, this wastes twice the amount of time. An extra second or fraction of a second may not seem like a lot - but it adds up. A painting that would take 2 hours, takes 4 hours. A piece that would take 1 day, takes 2 days. 1 week turns into 2 weeks, etc. 
    This would be a great addition to Affinity Photo - for all artists.
    One last idea... Is allowing the user to "fix" the color wheel triangle in a fixed position - instead of having it rotate all around pointing at the chosen color. Why? Because having lightness point up, darkness point down, and saturation point right - is far easier for the brain to process than having the triangle flip all around the wheel... it makes picking specific shades across different colors inconsistent.. harder to match the same saturation position on different colors... because it has changed position. It's easier for the brain to map out the color triangle when it's fixed in one position. White up - black down - and saturation to the right.. Would be far easier to remember for artists - who need consistency, and speed in color picking.
    Thank you immensely for viewing and considering these ideas!!

    eobet reacted to Hephaistos in Brush settings RMB + CTRL   
    @eobet It's ALT + RMB(Hold) then + LMB(Hold with RMB) then  drag. I found it by accident. Well, to put it simply, it's not user friendly at all and most importantly I cannot Hold 2 buttons on my pen device. the ALT + RMB doesn't do anything so why didn't they use this shortcut to let us resize brush. I don't get it.
