  1. The selection tool, and specifically the lack of this feature drives me insane, and keeps me wedded to photoshop. For my specific workflow the selection tool is just USLESS, and really totally awful... I love affinity, and have bought 3 copies for other people, BUT the selection brush is serious issue.... I often need to spot edit colours, and it just takes an insanely long time to select a region..... I am talking like up to 10mins of faffing around that only takes one click in photoshop.... When you need to do this 20 times in one day, well you can see the problem,... it is just not viable t
  2. Some files open OK, but as soon as I try to do anything they crash. I have already recreated files in designer, but I am loath to recreate a 26 page doc... Anyone got any ideas. It is not all my files, just some of them. To be honest I have had this in Designer too since the update. I had a misalignment on the text... I can move it with drag, but as soon as I use the arrow keys, it's curtains... this is typical of the type of problem I have been having.. sometimes they programs crash the first thing I try to do, sometimes I can do one or two things then the spinning rainbow ball of
  3. small stuff, but seriously how many people export spreads... no one who is printing? or at least make it so it remembers your preference, like it remembers your PDF preferences. I keep forgetting and have to export multiple times.
  4. copying and pasting a group within a layer seems to trigger it sometimes, and i have had it occur from copying between documents.... It is a bit random, but it definitely occurs after copying.
  5. similar problem, sometimes when I copy and element, it stops you being able to drag anything up or down the layers panel... have to reboot to fix... very annoying.
  6. this is exactly what is going on... and yes I can make a video , but I am very busy right now..
  7. Thank you, that is definitely more helpful, however I have tried that... I have enlarged the art board to a ridiculous size, and it still keeps happening.... even with new object created on the actual art board with no overlap. It is happening with every item in the layers panel. It feels like once you have moved one item off the art board, you will never be able to get anything to stay in order ever again.
  8. I started this thread because the answer is NOT there.... and I don't know if you monitor such old posts.... So... to be clear, Nothing is off the art board. I even created a whole lot new items and they did it too..
  9. Affinity Designer is great BUT I want to batter my head against a wall... The forum says it should not do this, unless you have stuff from outside the art board that you are dragging onto the art board. BUT IT IS DOING IT! It doesn't matter what or where I try to move something it is doing it. How do I stop this? It makes it impossible to use this software. No matter what I do, every time I move something it moves to the front. I am on Mac,,,, and I can't stop it... I am desperate for help. ...
  10. Specifically it happens when I try to move any object on the art board it jumps to the top..... I want to batter my head into a wall,.... this is SO not usable...
  11. This is happening to me and it is driving me NUTS.... it is enough to make me HATE designer... I have been looking for day s for how to stop this happening.... I could make my art board the size of a house and it still happens.... THIS IS A BUG, and I would love something more than "it shouldn't do it>... Sorry for being grumpy but it is driving me nuts
  12. How do you actually use the magic wand, or brush selector... I have hollow text that I have converted to curves, and I am trying to select the white bits to infill... the brush selector in photoshop would just select the white and the whole task would take less than a minute.... THIS IS A NIGHTMARE.... the brush keeps falling over into the black outlines, and it won't just select the whole white part, I have to keep scrolling around with it..... I have been at for 15 mins and still can't make it work... If there is no way to just select a colour and specify a tolerance then affinity is bust
