  1. It's just such an intuitive method of editing existing text. I'm not one for doing things a certain way just because that's how Adobe has done it, but this convention makes a lot of sense and would be a very welcome and helpful improvement to Affinity Photo.
  2. Okay, I discovered how this currently works. This could use some improvement by the programmers. When you apply a layer effect, then the opacity of the object needs to be controlled via the Fill Opacity option within the layer effects panel. So, be sure to set the transparency of the object itself to 100% under the "Color" tab if you want to apply any effects to that object. Watch the attached GIF to see how it works.
  3. Well, that was my point. Can't I choose for the object to be transparent, and then if I want the outer shadow to only affect the edges of the object, I can check "Fill knocks out shadow" and it would block the underlying shadow from being mixed with the transparent pixels of the object? Or am I misunderstanding the purpose of "Fill knocks out shadow"?
  4. This probably isn't the right place to post this, but I wanted to share. On Windows 10, I see this same behavior in Affinity Designer, or Affinity Photo. For the "Outline" I would expect it to actually outline the object and not be applied to the entire object. But maybe this is just a bug for the Windows version of this program?
  5. Hey Walt, what OS are you using? When I uncheck the "Fill knocks out shadow" option, I see no changes as I would expect to. My understanding is that it's supposed to prevent the outer shadow from being seen that is UNDERNEATH the object it has been applied to. See the attached image to see what I mean about it not making any difference.
  6. Thanks Chris, good to know. But what about the "Bloodpool" style? It doesn't even have red in it at all when applied to a brush.
  7. Forgot to check "notify me of replies" - Couldn't find a way to enable other than posting a response to myself here.
  8. When multiple layers are selected, and then you right-click any of those selected layers, the option to "Merge Selected" should be available in that context menu. (in ADDITION to the "merge visible" that is already there. Not in place of it. I just realized my image looks like I'm suggesting to replace, which I'm not. I just want it added as an additional option)
  9. I'm also coming to Affinity photo from years of experience with photoshop. From photoshop, I've gotten used to seeing the thumbnail generated within the context of the image it was copied from. Please see the screen capture below to see what I mean: https://www.screencast.com/t/ydeWPTD9zR Is there a way to change the default behavior in Affinity photo so that the thumbnails are generated like they are in Photoshop?
