    Mbrinman reacted to The-Design-Guy in Ruler (Measurement) tool in Affinity Photo !   
    It's just a lot of extra steps. 1) draw a line 2) rotate line 3) calculate length of line 4) delete the line. In Illustrator, you just grab the measurement tool, stretch it from point A to B and read off the measurement.

    Thanks guys, but for the time being I will stay with PS. It is very hard to get rid of the old habit called PS ;)

    Mbrinman reacted to Pietje Bogerman in Feature request: The outer shadow on its own layer   
    In Photoshop it is possible to give a the layer effect of the outer-shadow its own layer. So you can transform the shadow without transforming the object. I use this a lot, because the shadow tells a lot about the position of the object. I realy would like this possible in Affinity Designer as well!

    Mbrinman got a reaction from Gear maker in Drop Shadow?   
    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.

    Please put a "merge selected" option in the menu when you right click on a layer.  Right now "merge visible" is only available when right clicking on selected layers.

    Mbrinman reacted to Mollyc in Paste into Selection?   
    So, straight from the horse's mouth!! From Affinity:
    "Unfortunately Affinity Photo doesn't support pasting inside a selection, as in Photoshop."
    Kinda not impressed by the omittance of a technique that ought to be so standard.
