  1. Thanks Hangman. I can see what is happening by making the second re-size a much larger canvas. As you say the fill is much larger than the expected canvas size. Very odd - hopefully a simple bug fix for the guys at Affinity.
  2. Thanks for the rasterise & trim hint. I’ve also found that saving & re-opening between each enlargement also works, as does simply flattening the image if just using a single layer.
  3. I have been trying to add a key line around some of my images. To do this I use the resize canvas function and flood fill the new transparent borders created in white, resize again then flood fill with a key line colour, then resize again and flood fill in white again, however it is not functioning as expected. Steps to replicate: 1. Start with any image. for ease of demonstration create a solid filled colour document, say 200 x 100 pixels. 2. Select resize canvas. Unlock the padlock, and set the anchor point to centre. Change canvas size to 220 x 120 pixels. Press OK. This works as expected and creates a border 10 pixels wide around the original image. All new pixels are transparent. 3. Flood fill the newly created pixels in a different colour to show the border created. 4. Select resize canvas again. Unlock the padlock and set the anchor to centre. Now change canvas size to 240 x 140 pixels. Now what I’d expect to happen is for a new border of transparent pixels 10 pixels wide to be created all around the image again. However, what actually happens is that the new pixels created at the top and to the left of the canvas take on the colour of the flood fill colour chosen in step 3. The new pixels to the right and bottom are transparent, as expected. PS. It would be a useful enhancement to the resize canvas function to allow the colour of the new pixels to be specified.

  4. Hi there Just wondering if there are any plans to correct this issue, as it is still present in the latest version (1.6.7 on a Mac, running High Sierra)? thanks
  5. I have noticed what I think is a bug in the re-size canvas function, when trying to do more than one re-size operation. I was trying to add a border to one of my images, and was trying to achieve a white border around the entire image (for example 10 pixels), and then add a further black key line border outside of the white border (for example 2 pixels). So I take my original image, select re-size canvas, set the anchor point as central, unlock the retain aspect ratio padlock, and then add 20 pixels to each of the horizontal and vertical pixel dimensions - then press re-size. This all works as expected, and I can then flood fill the extended border area with white. Then to add the black key line I followed the same procedure, this time adding 4 pixels to the horizontal and vertical sizes. However, whilst this expands the canvas, it only adds transparent pixels on the right hand side and bottom of the canvas. Those on the top and left take on the colour of the existing image - so then it’s not possible to flood fill the new expanded canvas size. Examples of a simple case attached to demonstrate the effect. (Note if I save the image after the first re-size, close and then re-open the second resize works as expected.) PS it would also be useful if you could select the colour for new pixels added in the resize function itself.
