  1. Ah, that's great. Very interesting, thanks for sharing. It's good to see that there is a workaround to make masks that are non destructive and complex, but it would be lovely if Affinity spared us the work of recreating that setup in a more handy, ready to use, feature. This method you shared is a great proof of concept that shows that the building blocks for the features are just there, and it's only matter of exposing it in the UI. I really hope this takes off.
  2. I've been following several threads about masking and there's something that customers often complain about regarding masks in Affinity, and it's the inconvenient workflow for editing them, the lack of filters, etc. Many people ask features to bring Affinity Photo closer to Photoshop when it comes to editing those masks, but I think it can be done better, and more in line with the unique non-destructive workflow Affinity apps have: Turning a layer or group of layers into a mask non-destructively with a realtime filter. Affinity Photo already has amazing realtime filters that allow complex editing without having to rasterize the actual layer, making masks act like that seems a natural evolution and makes sense in the big picture, as no big changes have to the UI and it doesn't conflict with the existing features. Of course I can't say whether the internal architecture allows this approach, but from our perspective as users it would be a huge improvement.
  3. They are quite useful for branding too. Having the ability to fine-tweak positive/negative versions, for instance. Or coming up with a combination of weight and any other feature fits better with your design is a plus
  4. I'd love to see this feature implemented in Affinity products, it's really useful
  5. This is very annoying. You have to make sure that every single artboard you duplicated via alt+drag has integer coordinates, otherwise you'll get wrong dimensions or undesired edge antialiasing on export. I think that when the document units are pixels, artboards should ALWAYS move in integer increments. It makes no sense to have artboards that are not aligned to the pixel grid.
  6. Hi, this is also affecting exports to 32 bit EXRs which is completely unexpected and undesired, as the format has room for storing the actual information without needing dithering at all. The problem doesn't affect exporting only: rasterizing vector layers also applies that unwanted dithering. The option should be extended to general rasterization (probably the prefs dialog is the right place for that).
  7. Hi, This is an extremely simple feature that would be very useful to everyone using software tracking for time management and billing: Expose the active document name in the window title (like MS Office, Adobe apps and others do). This would allow software tracking the active application window not only to know what application is being used, but also the document that is being edited. In our studio we use Manic Time for that task, but there are others that use the same parameter. Windows 10 timeline uses also that parameter if its available (it shows in the timeline view, minimized apps, etc.). Right now Affinity apps on Windows only display the application name in the window title area, and that way it's impossible to know what document has been edited if you want to check your tracking history and record what you spent the day working on. It would be a huge time saver if we could get that information in our tracking software. Thanks in advance!
