  1. I have a similar issue, my raws open and display fine but if I rotate it, the image gets darker. However I can get it back to normal by pressing any of the sync options or checking lens correction off and back on. 2019-08-20 00-02-21.mp4
  2. Can confirm, this happens even when there are no adjustment layers present, mask is behaving like a general mask. Also, if you create some adjustment layers, then group them, then mask the group, then create some positive zones in the mask; you will get the behaviour mentioned above. But if you create a pixel layer (even an empty one) and put it at the bottom of the adjustments group; the adjustments will stop working. Here is a video demonstrating it. 2019-08-18 10-05-35.mp4
  3. Have you tried dragging the texture?
  4. +1 I have a similar issue when trying zooming using the shortcut spacebar+ctrl (+alt for zoom out/box zoom), it really brings me out of my "flow" when working. I think I haven't identified a situation where the order of pressing the modifiers would cause conflicting behavior, so I think you should be able the press them in any order.
  5. You are right sir, Ctrl+Drag works for Artboard, Groups and Layers, but not for clipped objects.
  6. Something like this? 2019-08-06 19-41-25.mp4
  7. Already works like that. Just change the tool settings and click Ctrl (cmd) while selecting. 2019-08-06 16-39-37.mp4

    Highpass sharpening

    1.- Select the layer you want to apply High Pass to 2.- At the bottom of the layers panel you will see a little "hourglass" icon, click it 3.- Select High Pass... 4.- Drag until you get the desired effect 5.- Select overlay or soft light as the blending mode for the effect 2019-08-05 21-42-40.mp4
  9. I think that documents don't get artboards by default you have to specify you want them checking the box at document creation or by following the steps you saw on the video. Artboards are very useful when designing for various screen sizes using constrains. https://affinity.help/designer/en-US.lproj/index.html?page=pages/DesignAids/constraints.html?title=Constraints
  10. OBS, it's free https://obsproject.com Not sure I understand what you mean, I just opened the file you posted and followed the steps you saw on the video.
  11. @Timespider This is how it is working for me 2019-08-04 15-13-29.mp4
  12. @Timespider weird, you mind sharing that file so I can check for myself?
  13. Photo: 1.- Select Layer 2.- Document 3.- Clip Canvas
  14. Not sure if I understand correctly but I think it is already there: Designer: 1.- Select object/group 2.- Click Layers>Convert Object to Artboard Alternatively: 1.- Select object/group 2.- Select Artboard Tool 3.- From the dropdown menu, select "Selection" 4.- Click "Indest Artboard"
  15. I want to believe. My guess is that there will be two more rounds of free major updates and then all apps will have their v2 announcement simultaniously. I'm pretty exited about the mesh distort.
  16. Honestly I think serif will hold on some of those as a hook for costumers to get v2, I don't blame them, still I'd like to have as much of these as part of the 1.x free updates.
  17. Currently, when you have the Paint Brush Tool selected and press Alt, you pick a global color (the sum of all layers), I'd like to have the option to quickly choose between global or current layer. I'd suggest Alt for global (current funcionality) and Ctrl+Alt for current layer. This would be very useful when you are painting on layers with blending modes.

    Hey Affinity,

    @ErrkaPetti A problem-solver, good work. Its not very intuitive but with some practice it can be used effectively ++
  19. I think Ctrl+K is what you are looking
  20. Hello, I just bought Affinity Designer and Photo because I remember trying them before and really liking them. To my surprise Affinity Designer's performance is no way as good as I remember it (I tried ~v1.5). Toying with the app, I found the following: 1.- The selection tool is smooth and responsive as long as I have no previous selection active, if I do, it is very laggy. 2.- Vectors have very bad performance compared to pixels (both in Designer and Pixel personas). 3.- Pixel persona have a little better response than Designer persona (both for vectors and pixels). Now the interesting part... 4.- If I put each vector inside a group, the performance gets much much better. I'll attach a video in case someone wants to see if this behaviour happens to them aswell. Specs: OS: Windows 8.1 CPU: i76700k @4ghz GPU: GTX 1080 Ti Ram: 16gb HD: Solid State Designer_performance.mp4
  21. Can beta and retail be installed at the same time without causing problems?
  22. Yes, the performance is much better if the appearance panel is not visible.
  23. Problem was this part of the shape was not closed. Click "Close curve" and it will work.
