  1. I didn't know about the meaning of the path field... The user interface of the export persona could take some improvements anyway: easy copy/paste of settings between slices or duplicating of slices easy inclusion/exclusion of layers per slice fix the following: if one exports only certain layers the background will always be transparent, independently of the setting in the document menu a variable for dpi (which takes the value of the Export-dpi field or the source-dpi x scale factor) fix the following: scale factor takes only "." as decimal point (no localisation to "," under German speaking environment as anywhere else) and last but not least user variables should be global to all slices. I have managed most of the above issues with templates, but any improvement to the export persona would be appreciated.
  2. There is a path field in the slice properties of photo's export persona. When I enter an absolute path there, like E:\secondary_project\exports it is converted to E\secondary_project\exports i.e. th colon is omitted. When I export this slice, I am prompted for a path. If I chose e.g. E:\primary_projects\export (just confirming the prompted path) the exported file is stored at: E:\primary_projects\export\E\secondary_projects\export Saving the path without drive letter doesn't help, becaus in this case the leading backslah is omitted. "\secondary_projects\exports" becomes "secondary_projects\exports". As a workaround I save relative paths and chose root directory on export.
  3. I was about to ask a similar question (I needed blend mode "darken"), but like many other questions it has already been answered by @walt.farrell. 😉
  4. I would also welcome this feature. Since I use export persona a lot, it would be nice to include this feature there as well. For now, Loukash's suggestion to use Lanczos 3 (non-separable) as a resample algorithm is very helpful.
  5. Wow this works really great and flawlessly! What a savings of tedious editing and time! Thank you so much, you made my day! What do I say, you have made my week, month and year! 😀👍🏆 Some years ago (didn't have Affinity at this time) I tried the same with PTGui panoram stitcher. But PTgui cannot handle images without lens information properly and produced weird distortions. Since than I didn't even think of using a panorama stitcher for this purpose.
  6. Some here don't understand or don't want to understand my concern, instead they take the attitude, "What is useless to me must be useless to everyone else." Not a good style of discussion in my opinion.
  7. See this example with only two layers. The most annoying part in designer is the scrolling through dozens of objects in te layers tree. By the way, in a real world document I would know the meaning of my layers and name them accordingely... Designer: Affinity-Forum Move-to-layer-2.mov Inkscape: Affinity-Forum Move-to-layer-3.mov
  8. I suggest an easy way to move objects from one layer to another via contxt menu: Right-Click on object Select "Move to layer" in the context menu Choose layer from list This has already been discussed here (and I myself started a thread here, which can be closed now). It could look like in Inkscape: Video.mov
  9. This thread can be closed. I posted a new thread in Suggestions. Has this topic been solved? It's about a simple way of moving an object to another layer, without having to drag it through a long list of objects in the layer's panel. Like so: Right-Click on object Select "Move to layer" in the context menu Choose layer from list See this example from Inkscape: Video.mov
  10. I'm already using my workflow with success. It may sound over-accurate, but when combining images it's worth the effort. The only improvment I'm looking for is the way how to enter the rotation values. @carl123 Thanks for the suggestion, I have not thought of macros at all!
  11. First of all: I mentioned the wrong program in the initial post, it's actually Photo. My workflow: I regularly scan fotos or drawings which are to small for my A4-Scanner. So I scan 2 ore more subpictures with overlap. I load the subpicture into Photo, put one into the background make the other one semi-transparent and position it correctly with regard to the background image using a distinct detail in the picture. Then I rotate the half-transparent picture in fine rotation steps. Having the background and the half-transparent image in view at the same time you can be very, very precise here. For the time being, I rotate in steps of 0,1 until I'm almost there, then add/substract manually 0,01 degree steps and after one to three retrys I'm there. Not a big deal, but would be more comfortable to be able to rotate in 0,01 degrees in the first place. PS: Auto-Rotate of scan programs does not work precisely enough, especially when there are no suitable reference lines in both subparts.
  12. It is possible to increase/decrease the rotation angle of an object using the scroll wheel of your mouse when hovering over the belonging input field (in steps of 1 degree). With 'Ctrl' pressed, the increment/decrement is 0.1 degree, which is already very helpful. Question: Is there a way to get an even finer increment/decrement of 0.01 degrees? (I often have to align scanned images, where finer rotation steps would prove useful)
  13. I sometimes have superscript numbers in headings, which appear as ordinary numbers in the table of contents. There is a workaround described in this this post, namely using superscript glyphs provided by the font in use. Unfortunately, most fonts have only glyphs for digits "1", "2" and "3". I suggest an option in (character) text style like "preserve this style in TOC". This would also allow, for example, partially italicised headings to appear as such in the table of contents. This is not an urgent necessity, but a nice to have option for the future.
  14. I too have recurring crashes of Photo 2.1. The program all of a sudden just disappears with all not saved changes lost. Sometimes a simple click on a menu item is enough to crash the program. For instance: I often work with placed (linked) images with approx 6000x5000 Pixels, I'm adding adding a mask and a level adjustment. I save and close the file and then when I try to create a new file for the next project somewhere in the process the program crashes. My workaround is to close Photo and restart it for a new project and save frequently. I think (but I'm not sure) that the problem started after updating Photo from 2.0 to 2.1. I changed nothing else on my PC OS: Windows 10 Hardware acceleration is disabled Renderer is set to Nvidia GeForce GTX 970
