  1. Hi, Olivier. What i meant is that, if this was really a fix, the Displacement filter would produce these results without the user having to create additional adjustment layers (Guassian blur, Black and White …) like you and the man behind Digitally Fearless have done. I think only Serif can 'fix' it; we (you and others) can only come up with creative ways (workarounds) of making this work, despite the Displacement tool doing a poor job as it comes with the software. When you watch James Ritson's tutorial about the Displacement filter, you'll see he uses an example whereby the typeface used (Chalkduster) lends itself for the standard behaviour (the one that nobody seems to like) of the filter. He doesn't talk about other adjustments needed to get the expected results.
  2. I'd rather call this a workaround. Also, adding a black and white adjustment (suggested in the Digitally Fearless video, i believe) could have a (positive) impact on the behaviour of the Displacement filter.
  3. I think the 'slow pace' is related to the fact that the team is also developing Affinity Publisher and everything has to work together. Yes, it looks like many people complain about the slow pace of development. At the same time, there are also many people who want the team to also develop a DAM tool, an animation tool as well as a 3D graphics tool. Can you imagine what would happen if these requests are granted?
  4. I'm also on Mac (with Safari). Even a PNG with transparency is recognized. Looks like it's Windows specific. No further recommendations from my side, I'm afraid.
  5. To me it sounds a bit like the combination Photobox + PNG is the problem and not AD +PNG. Or is it possible to upload PNG's created in other programs? I have saved an image as a PNG in the Desktop folder. When i go to upload.photobox.com (is it the right site?) it recognises the image.
  6. Maybe go to the desktop, double-click the .png and see what happens?
  7. And it all has to work in concert with the new Affinity Publisher product.
  8. I see the same happening indeed. The only thing is that, even in that situation, the Create artboard flag choice is not sticky.

    Actually, i now AM experiencing a serious lag. I use the trackpad of my MBP.
  10. It looks like, in .11 the Create artboard flag is On by default. Even if you deselect it, it will be On again the next time you create a new document. For me it means that doing a Cmd+N + Enter is no longer enough to create a new document (I now often have to close the new document and try again). I've tried by creating a new Preset, but this doesn't solve anything (you have to first select Type = Presets and than the actual preset you just created). I don't see this as in improvement. It would be if AD remembered the things you had checked/unchecked. Or, am I missing something?
  11. I agree with you that being able to view the brushes by name (in addition to how they look) would be an improvement. Be aware though that by hovering you will be able to see the name of the brush (at least, on Mac). It takes approx. half a second before the name becomes visible with my settings for Tooltip Delay.
  12. No problemo. As soon as i find the time.
  13. I don't know how come. I experience the same every now and then. I apply one of multiple techniques which may or may not work: inpaint brush clone stamping copy one area into the empty area and finish with inpainting brush
  14. Crop to desired dimensions; select transparent pixels (selection menu); grow selection by a few pixels (selection menu); inpaint (edit menu). Sometimes this gives perfect results.
