  1. This needs to be a thing in Designer too. I am constantly using the cmd/alt-del shortcut to fill selections. I don't see any options for it, even in the pixel persona. I don't want to be constantly fiddling with the tolerance slider.
  2. So am I! While I haven't yet tested it to comment on its implementation (seems the connection to the server is tenuous)—I'll be honest—I expected this to be held back until a new paid version.
  3. Affinity's adoration—and perhaps stubbornness—to be different (and the disaster that is Designer) is the reason I can't bring myself to buy Photo. I just don't have faith that it can do the job I need it to, in a way that's intuitive. Different for the sake of different is not inherently better. Many UX standards have been developed across the software industry over the decades, I don't see why Affinity needs to challenge them as if everyone's been doing it wrong. I want to support the little guy, I really do but not at the cost of me being hamstrung by the software which is costing me and the client more time (or the software just can't do the job at all).
  4. I think we all agree but at this point we're talking to the void. Let's wait and see what happens whenever they decide to release an update with a worthwhile selections feature set.
  5. It's important that we don't all get false hope with this. It could still be several years before we see anything with the current track record.
  6. I don’t blame anyone here being sceptical/pessimistic about the delivery of this. I’m excited AF (as it’ll make the software I paid for useful) but I’ll be damned if I’m counting my chickens until it goes live.
  7. I agree, it looks spiteful to me 😂 Regardless, it’s great news and I’ll be ecstatic if this a 2020 and 1.x feature.
  8. I had a quick look through the forum, ordering posts by most views and checking the "likes" on the original post. This request has the most votes (54) yet it doesn't have the most views. Seems like people are using it and still our voice isn't being heard/appreciated. The only post that comes even close to this thread is for Autotrace (47 votes) and that was also created in 2014. Having been involved in running a forum for a popular application for several years, I can tell you the number of comments says more than the votes. Comments and discussion show passion, votes can be cast and forgotten.
  9. Yes! That would fix the shortcoming of the software. Listen to this person!
  10. REJOICE! 1.8.1 finally fixes this issue, boys and girls! ... Just kidding. As you were.
  11. Yep, sadly it doesn’t take long before this becomes an insurmountable issue. It’s fundamental to vector illustration.
  12. @jamesholden Sorry, my mistake. You're right, it's a perpetual license but you only get one year's of updates for the initial purchase. I'll update my post to reflect that omission!
  13. @DomD Sketch (Mac) is a capable alternative if you're focused on UI work which is a perpetual license and a year's worth of updates. After that you pay a lesser fee to continue to receive updates. Aseprite is an amazing Pixel Art editor with a perpetual license and currently infinite free updates. Both of those are quite specialised though and not the generalist tool that Photoshop is or Designer is trying to be. As it is, Designer is sadly not fit for purpose when it comes to heavy lifting -- at least for my use case. If you already have a CC license I'd stick with that, at least for the foreseeable future. It'd be wrong to assume Affinity are actually working on this, at least not for the version we've paid for.
  14. Thanks, but I'm not new. I've been following the thread for years so I'm well aware of how Serif staff treat us.
