    donka reacted to Julian Hartinger in freehand selection option should only connect both ends if they're very near.   
    Hello everyone, hello Affinity team,
     
    first of all, I love your software - its awesome! Using it for Mac and the iPad
     
    Their is a small thing, that would improve your software  - its about the freehand selection tool.    Can you "steal" the idea from  the ProCrate app for the iPad?  How their freehand selection tool works? 
     
    Their selection tool is pretty cool. You can stop the selection if you lift of the pen, BUT if you put the pen again on the iPad, then it connects the points where you ended and were you started again. If you are ready with the selection, you can double tip on a little circle on the beginning of the selection, so its closes the selection.
     
    So the hole selection part becomes very easily. 
     
    I´m not an native speaker, so I hope I could make the idea clear- in my opinion this is the perfect freehand selection tool, because you can take breaks and don't have to do the hole selection in one hand gesture or to refine it the hole time with selection/selection again and again.
     
    Maybe you could look at the ProCreate App to understand what I mean. I think this little feature would be a big improvement.
     
    Have a nice day - you guys and girls are doing great work!!!! <3
     
     
    Oh and their is one last thing- could you change that you have so save the selections on the iPad version on an extra channel? That is pretty unwieldy . 
    I would love it, if you just can do a thing like "command+click" like on the desktop version. Or just tip on the layer and hold for a sec. to make a selection- that would be pretty cool.

    I think we've cracked it. I can get it most of the time. The way I've been reproducing it is to open the image, go back to gallery and open the image again. As soon as it opens, do the pinch gesture and off it goes. I'll get this passed over to the dev team now. Thank you

    Just checked and I have that option disabled. I think you are now seeing it though because it is gesture related as per my last post and that setting may be irrelevant.

    Cool. I'll play some more and try and find something more consistent in the meantime but hopefully that helps lead to the root of this issue.

    I'm just glad this has happened to someone else to be honest because I knew I hadn't imagined it. I'll make an effort to try and replicate it this week.

    One issue I have is video shows up in the photos import but there is nothing to determine it is a video since you only see a still frame preview. If you import this then the app will crash.

    I'm starting to see more crashes as I use this app more and I do sympathise with the OP but the best thing we can do is report these issues and provide additional details and sample files where requested to assist the team in resolving these issues. Participation in the beta also makes a lot of sense for the OP as you will see where improvements are being made and be able to contribute to existing issues.

    Are you using iCloud integration on your iOS device for storing photos?

    donka got a reaction from Taluyaq in Import from photos does not pull current version.   
    If you crop in Photos then try opening the same image AP and Snapseed, AP will open the original uncropped image but Snapseed and other apps open the cropped image. I believe this latter behaviour is correct since the image appears cropped in Photos and this is the image you want to work on. 
    AP is importing the original version and not the current version from Photos.

    donka got a reaction from Taluyaq in Photos Save instead of Save As   
    If a photo is imported from Photos, it would be good if you had the Save over the original photo option where you are prompted to allow the app to modify the photo. This is a feature that Pixelmator has and is a real time saver if your intention was to replace the original image in the first place when working on a number of images. 
    it is also not permanent in the sense that if you go into the modified photo in Photos, you can tap on the edit button then tap revert to switch back to the original photo instead of the modified version.

    Which version of 12.9 is it - 1st or 2nd gen? Have you tried restarting the iPad? Is it just newly set up? I've got the 2017 model running ios10 and not experienced that behaviour but there could be a few things causing it.

    donka got a reaction from cote32mt in How to Sample color from image for Color Replacement Brush?   
    There are bugs, this is to be expected with such a new release - it's been out less than a month. I disagree that this is beta level, I have been through countless images in the app store version without issue. A lot of it will come down to the image being used and what task is being performed and of course if you do encounter something then report it. There have been so many fixes in the beta version so far, both large and small that show that Affinity are very good at addressing issues and a lot of these issues will only come via public feedback - it is the very reason that Apple offer a public beta of iOS these days.
    Frankly, I think this app is more than value for money.

    When you load up an image, regardless of type, if you press home to leave the app or swipe to another app then go back into AP, the canvas is black as if the image has disappeared. The image still technically appears to be there though as you can see it in the adjustments thumbnail previews.

    Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
    A single two finger tap opens the popover menu. A double two finger tap switches the zoom level between zoom to fit and the zoom level you were using/viewing (before the double two finger tap).

    donka got a reaction from malyKeri in Impressed by defringing   
    I was playing around with a shot of wedding rings and on closer inspection, there is some purple fringing around the highlights. I found the defringe option under develop so selected it and adjusted the hue and was mightily impressed that it managed to not only completely remove the fringing but also had no impact on the colours of the out of focus flowers in the background. Kudos for a well implemented feature.
     
    Also, thanks for native 10.5 support in the latest beta. :)
