  1. Hi @SPaceBar Wacom Intuos Pro, last macOS Catalina 10.15.5, Affinity Designer 1.8.3. The problem happens with every brush, every sizes (but increase if the canvas is bigger). I noticed that if I wait 2-3s before drawing after I'm using the "scrubby" zoom I have no latency for the first new input. And as I said, I have no problem at all on Affinity Photo. I have the problem with the mouse too if I'm trying to draw with it.
  2. Each time I zoom in / out on my A4 canvas I have some delay for the first paint brush input (both with wacom tablet and mouse). I don't have this problem on Affinity Photo. (Same config, same brush, same canvas) With smaller canvas it's better but I also feel the slight delay. I tried with OpenGL and Metal to see differences but it's the same for both renderer. laggypaintbrush.mov
  3. I have the same problem, maybe we should have an option like 3D software do to clean / merge by distance nodes. This will be very useful and we can imagine having a distance parameter for better control.
  4. You have two ways to create a "mask": First, you can have a rectangular shape, set its opacity to 0% and drag what you want inside and it will act as a mask. Or you can have your rectangular shape above your group, set the layer to "mask to below" and everything below the mask will be masked. For both ways, I have no problem of resizing the mask to not lose any contents aspect ratio with the "lock childen" checked. If it's not clear, maybe you should post a screen of your problem or your file!
  5. Hi notMateo, if I clearly understand your problem, for the first use-case you have to check "lock children" on the context toolbar (the top one) , you will be able to move your boxed layer mask and the content inside will not move. For the second use-case, you just have to put your adjustment layer inside the group and above all layers.
  6. Hi Calma! Yes, I use the shortcut to copy paste FX but as I said, I just want to copy one FX from a layer with multiple FX. It takes time to copy all fx and to go to the effects layer to uncheck unwanted FX one by one... That's why I submit the idea of a right click option on the FX layer panel to just copy the selected or multi selected FX. And we can add the option to turn off selected FX too.
  7. Hi! I would like to have the ability to copy and paste one or several FX's layers from a shape. As we have the Effects layers panel, we could have a right click option to copy the desired FX.(one or several selected) Also to remove all FX's from a layer it's a long process because we have to deselect each layers one by one. It would be nice to have a turn off/turn on option with a right click on the layer for exemple.
  8. Hi! When I'm working on UI, I want to quickly copy and paste or replace selected nodes inside the same shape or another shape. I know I can do it with a compound object but it's a long process when you just want to isolate a group of nodes and turn them into a new curves path or paste/replace on another.
  9. +1 on this. We will save a lot of clicks/time and it should be every time we want to choose a color Also the drag is a slow process, why I can't just click on the color picker and click where I want to pick a color? We can have both solution.
  10. Hi @Sean P I have the same problem with Inner glow, outer glow, etc... Everything with the pixel parameters on FX gives random pixel sizes from the original element copied (and I have "Scale with Object" unchecked) The same goes for Styles. When I'm working on UI elements, I need consistency of FX and it would be nice when I apply a style to an object to keep the exact pixel values instead of random pixel scales.
  11. It depends, I use the arrow keys from the keyboard when I'm on safari/chrome or I'm using the mouse instead. Wacom touch functionality is not great for me so all my touch features, buttons and scroll ring on the tablet are disabled. The layers panel has by default its scroll bar activated instead of the Brushes panel, so this is an inconsistency for me. You can see on the attached file below.
  12. +1 on this, it's very sensitive also with the mouse too.
  13. On the Brushes panel (Designer and Photo), the scrollbar is not displayed by default. When you use a Wacom stylus you can't scroll inside the panel to select the desired brush. I have to use the mouse in the Brushes panel to display the scrollbar. The current fix I found to display the scrollbar is the activation of the scrollbar on the general settings of macOS but it's for everything on my computer and I would like to avoid that.
  14. Hi all! I'm madPXL, a French game artist working in the mobile game industry for 15 years (yes, before the iPhone!). I launched Affinity Designer for the first time in 2016 with the surface pro 4, but I lacked a lot of features to switch from Ph... Since the Covid-19 episode, I use it for my last game project with the iMac and it's much better than 4 years ago. I can create all of my game assets with incredible speed and efficiency. So thank you Affinity for the discount and for what you bring to the market, I bought Photo and Designer
