  1. This issue has come up in the regular Affinity Photo as well as in the beta. I am on OSX version 12.6.3. I open a large image for instance jpg (size does not mater but I have an image that is 5154pxx3436px). Go to Export. Click into the first Size box. All the numbers and px is marked. Sometimes this happens. I begin pressing numbers on the keyboard and only the first number is seen and the rest of the numbers are not added to the Size box. Other times it acts just as it should. I will need to come back here and give a more to the point description of what I notice. The difficult part is that I have yet to understand why clicking into the first size box that sometimes when I press the keyboard that the numbers are added and other times these are not added into the size box.
  2. I appologize for butting into this thread.... What about adding a feature to rotate the canvas/document by numbers giving a higher flexible way to rotate? I find the rotate by scroll wheel confusing as I have it happened a few times without wanting to do so. As currently we just have rotate 90 anti and clockwise. Having more flexibilty through the Document menu above or below the current rotate 90 would be helpful.
  3. Retesting Using beta version 2.1.0 (1781) Jpg file on the desktop OSX. Affinity Photo open. Dragged image onto the Photo icon in the dock. Renamed image on the desktop. Dragged the renamed file onto the Photo icon in the dock. It opened in Affinity Photo with no problem. Renamed the jpg on the desktop another time. Dragged that onto the Photo icon in the doc. Image was also added to Photo. The bug has been fixed! Thank you! This thread can be closed.
  4. Hey I noticed this bug in the latest beta as well as in the regular version of Affinity Photo. Environment: OSX: 12.6.3 Affinity Photo standard version: 2.0.4 Beta version: 1769 The bug: Open Affinity Photo. Drag and drop an image file png or jpg onto the Affinity Photo icon in the dock. Notice the image show up in the program. On the desktop in OSX rename the same image file already added to Photo. Drag and drop the renamed image file onto Affinity Photo icon in the dock. Notice the OSX beach ball. I had to force quit the program. I right clicked Photo in the dock and selected Force quit. If needed I can always create a video.
  5. Testing version 2.0 of Affinity Photo. "Holding down the spacebar should move the marque." This feature has not yet been added. I will just assume that it has been overlooked and that we need a staff person to add it to the list to add it to the next 2.x version.
  6. I am using OSX 11.6.1. Affinity Photo version: 1.10.4 I had a similar weirdness as well. Mine had a huge blank square be created when I was drawing a rectangle with the rectangle tool. I tested... I went into Preferences -> Performance and turned on the Hardware acceleration: Enable Metal compute acceleration. Restarted the app and now the Rectangle tool works again as it should. I also turned it off again and restarted and the Rectangle tool still looks to be working fine. There seems to be an initial hickup that did some weirdness. It looks better now. I will report back again if it shows up again.
  7. Hi Bruce Ahhh yes. Thanks for sharing. One can create a marque selection area and move the cursor inside the marque and move the selection around.
  8. The way I usually create a screenshot on the Mac is like so: 1. Hold down shift+cmd+4 2. Drag the cursor around the area where I want to take a screenshot. 3. Let go of above shortcuts. While the left mouse button is pressed I hold down the spacebar to move the marque/selection. I let go of the spacebar to adjust the size of the marque/selection. In Affinity Photo (perhaps also the other software from Affinity...) The process of creating a marque section. 1. I click the Marque tool. 2. With the cursor and left mouse button held down. Drag out a marque selection area. 3. There is no step 3. It would be nice to be able to hold down the spacebar to move the marque selection around. The option to create a marque selection to make a screenshot on the Mac is better then creating a marque selection in Affinity Photo.
  9. What is good about our discussions here is that it can add onto the internal discussions Affinity has with their testers. From what your saying I believe that your saying that one could remove the left sidebar area as well as the top header sections. Then have the header sections starting with Most Recent, then All "Web" Templates, below that All "Print" Templates, then below that All "Photo" Templates etc. It would make for a very long page which one would need to scroll through. Another approach would be to have the tabs in the top with each section. Click for instance Web. Then have it show up as your showing in your wireframe. With most recent in the top and the rest seen below.
  10. The only thing I would like to change about the beta My Documents is having the 4 most recent in the top of each section (section = My Presets, Print, Photo, Web, Devices and Architectural as can be seen in the wireframe I posted in the initial post). The user clicks to expand for additional options. Do please go into more detail of what you would like to see. As the more details you give the easier it can be to visualize it. I might also create a wireframe out of it.
  11. @fde101 @KipV My thought is that the 4 options that are seen in each section are the ones that are most used (recently used) options. If the user needs to use something the user has not used before/recently then he/she can click the "Show additional options" accordion to see the rest of the options for the specific section. Then click one of the options. The next time the user opens the New Document screen and goes to the specific section one of the 4 options would be the one she/he used the last time. This way each section would show 4 initial visible options and the rest one can easily click "Show additional options" to see. The 4 showing the recently used or if none of the options have been used before show the most likely used option. This way one will always have the recently used options showing in the top of each section. One would not be distracted by all the other options present. As there are so many to choose from one can easily get distracted and loose focus. I hope that makes it more clear @fde101
  12. Transparent pixels after a crop is something I have never really understood why happens. (Photoshop CS6 has the same problem. I have not yet noticed it in Affinity Photo.) It really should not happen in the first place, and should have an auto fill of closest pixels to fill in the gap that can happen.
  13. The other day as I was working in Photo I missed having a simple way to duplicate the document. Duplicating document menu option is a feature I would also would like to see added. Btw I am a brand new user and noticed a lot of things when I made a wireframe a few days ago. Specific methods I am used to from Photoshop that I tried in Photo. I will go through again and add a few more treads in regards to some of the stumbling blocks I met.
  14. I made a thread about this as well (before I noticed this thread)! It sure would be very helpful to have this featured included. It is very helpful to be able to as one creates a shape/marque/etc to hold down the spacebar to move the in progress selection around.
  15. Then it is about time this little but important usability feature is added to Affinity Photo as well as Affinity Designer and Publisher.
