  1. I was re-evaluating Affinity Photo as a possible candidate for our production pipeline. Affinity Photo pretty much has all the tools we need for our work except one — full cryptomatte support. I was hoping it would have it by now but unfortunately it's still not implemented. Will have to stick to old workflow. Too bad. We really like Affinity Photo and would love to use it on a regular basis. This option is pretty important too.
  2. Make it possible to assign hotkeys for Lock Children option. Or rethink how it works in Designer. I would suggest to make it behave like in Figma when working with frames. If a modifier hotkey is pressed when transforming object then the children will stay in place.
  3. I second this request. This is a must have feature. Doing anything complex makes real pain navigation through layers tree.
  4. I discovered that Color panel and drop down Color panel aren't really the same. There are features and functionality disparities. The most prominent is the Opacity slider. Please improve the the drop down Color panel and add an option to see/add numeral values to the opacity. When you adjust the opacity with drop down Color panel there is no way to know the opacity value. Which is terrible UX decision. The other thing is the drop down menu(1) for the opacity in the color panel. What is it for? Why it wasn't implement simply like a filed(2)? It seems very redundant when there is a slider to adjust the opacity and the option to add a precise number manually.
  5. I have a request to improve the functionality of the transform panel coordinate and size fields. 1. Ctrl + Enter, apply or dismiss aspect ratio option on the fly based on the current state of the Lock Aspect Ratio. This combination enables or disables aspect ratio when your enter your numbers. It saves you a lot of time by removing additional physical actions with your hands that are needed to turn on/off Lock Aspect Ratio icon. Ex. You write in W: 110 and press Ctrl + Enter. If Lock Aspect Ratio is On then operation ignores it and we get W:110px, H100px. If Lock Aspect Ratio is Off then operation works as if it's On and we get W:110px, H110px as a result. 2. Ctrl + Alt + Enter, make equal other field to the current. When you simply want to match the position or size of the shape on both coordinates or lengths. It saves you time from doing double work by typing and pressing twice the same information. Ex. Let's say you have W:110px, H:50px. All you need to do is just choose any field, type let's say W:100 and press Ctrl + Alt + Enter and other field will reset to the same number. P.S. It's also best if you make these modifier keys not hard coded but leave an option to assign different combinations from each modifier set. Different people might have different preferences to which modifier keys they'd like to use.
  6. I too have some apps where visibility icons on the right. But I don't need to access them that often in these apps. Based on the use case I would prefer visibility icon on the left. But click and drag response with visibility icons must happen. It's a very good QoL functionality. Makes workflow so much smoother and natural.
  7. Thank you for a workaroud. I love hotkeys and use them all the time. Still, I stand by my request. When my curse in the green area dealing with layers order it's much easier and faster to controls visibility with the cursor if the checkbox is close by on the left side.
  8. Really enjoy many sides of Designer. Unfortunately, there are still many things that frustrates me. I have 3 request regarding Layers Panel functionality. 1. A lot of work is happening in the green area. I move, arange, clip, mask and re-arrange layers stack. I very often need to control layers visibility. Please move layer's visibility check to the left side. It will reduce the distance I have to move my mouse/stylus at lest 5 time. Right now Designer makes me do 5 times more work in the layers panel. I'm really confused why visibility check boxes are on the far right side away from all the action that is happening with the layers on the left side. Please fix it. 2. Make visibility check boxes respond better. When I need to deactivate/activate visibility of 3 and more layers in a row it's a real problem. You have to click on each box. Please make visibility checkboxes recognazie click and drag action for improved and faster working experience. 3. Pure aesthetics request. Can you make checkboxes into an eye icon? It's much better recognized in it's functionality. Use of checkboxes is weird. P.S. Propagate this design change across all packages.
  9. Please make it possible to invert masks. I have to use workaround right now but they're quite ugly. I would simply expect to be able to make path negative/invert it. It doesn't work right now.
  10. Make it possible to decide where to keep conflicted shortcut on the fly. Without the need to go to the conflicted command and change the shortcut. Side note. Make the preference window resizable please. At least vertically. This is too small of an area to work with on bigger monitors.
  11. Is the an option to change modifier keys behavior? I don't find it intuitive and pretty disruptive across all other apps I use. It feels like right click select in Blender. While it might be more powerful way to work it was too different usual conventions to the point of total rejection until they changed it in 2.8. I wouldn't mind having non-standard standard in Affinity for modifier keys as long as I have an option to change this behavior in preferences. Is there any?
  12. I am trying to get back to Affinity Photo. Everything is minuscule. Please add the option to scale the UI manually. It's a pain to work with the program at the moment.
  13. Oh man. It's embarrassing. It's great it's already there. I probably didn't see it because I was expecting it in the new file menu. Thanks for the help. Don't know how the forums work yet. New here. But you probably can lock the thread now. Thanks Callum.
  14. Hi, I'm trying to slowly switch to Affinity Designer from Photoshop and there are a bunch of features missing for my workflow. I quite often need to make adjustment to a screenshot I captured with another software. Please make the it possible for Designer to recognize that I have an image in my clipboard and when I try to crete New Document use this dimension or have an option in Type drop down menu like Clipboard for a new document. So when you choose it Designer automatically populate dimension according to what I have currently in clipboard. Thanks.
