  1. Thanks for filling us in, @Dan C Since my stuff is for print, my options for reducing size are limited. And unfortunately with this bug I tend to need rather more layers as backup in case something gets butchered (which happens all the time) Is there a way to reduce the resolution of the document without changing the dimensions? I found it to be quite confusing with the "change document" options
  2. Thanks for your reply. Of course the layer is gone when merged 😉. I was saying that the adjustment itself (not the adjustment layer) on the affected layer is gone. Threshold gets rid of feathered lines. When merged the feathering is back. But I found out why. Even though the layer was a pic it still has to be rasterized again for the adjustment to remain effective when merged.
  3. I want to apply threshold on BW lineart for sharp and crisp lines without greytones in Affinity Photo for iPad. The adjustment works as expected, however, when I merge the threshold adjustment layer with the affected layer beneath the adjustment is gone. Anyone any idea why that is?
  4. Hey, this is the same issue that I reported back in August 2021. See here: 👇 It seems to mainly affect versions on iPad Pro It had been logged with the developers. No news since …
  5. Hey, just want to let you know, you are not alone. I have this bug using Affinity Photo for iPad Pro and have brought this issue to Dan’s attention as well. My way of working triggers this bug in virtually every file I work on. Hey @Dan C any news on the horizon regarding this? It has been a while…
  6. Yes, that’s exactly what I was looking for. Thank you! I finally know what this intersect mode is for 😊👍
  7. Thx for the idea. Unfortunately not practical for my purposes. Just cumbersome in another way 🤷‍♂️😉
  8. I do comic coloring using Affinity Photo. For this I use the technique in the video below a lot (just a simplified demo to illustrate what I am asking). I only want to shade the selected parts in one color section. For that I have to subtract all the overlapping parts in the other color areas, which means a lot of clicks. Is there a way to click within the wanted color section and by that “say”: subtract all selection parts in the other color areas? That would save me a lot of time. FullSizeRender.mov
  9. I guess this issue hasn't just been brought to their attention much, because it may require a certain way of working with the programm (more complex and demanding...). It may not show upin benchmark tests at all. And many pros who tried the program and bumped into several different issues have moved on from Affinity anyway. At this stage, Affinity is not really used by many pros, because it is just not reliable enough in many aspects. I had a lot of issues with Affinity Publisher too. Went through a lot of threads dedicated to a truckload of problems that needed workarounds ....
  10. What‘s weird is that @Chris B seemed to have a hard time triggering the bug while I run into this problem all the time with EVERY SINGLE FILE. No excessive zooming or other crazy shit. Just selecting, zooming in, painting within the selection, usually with hard light blending mode on the layer.
  11. For everyone encountering this problem: if you don‘t want to feel like you have wasted money on this app (like I did for a while), here is a workaround that, at least, reduces the chance of having to cry over destroyed layers. Before you start working on a layer in a way that usually triggers the destruction, either duplicate the layer first or make a new layer with the same blending mode like the layer you actually want to work on. After you are done, merge this layer with the actual layer. In case you get the horrendous „effect“, at least, you don’t have to start from scratch. Since I encounter this bug all the time, this method saved me a lot of headaches lately. I don’t know if this issue will ever be addressed, but if you are a victim of this too, I want you to know: “You are not alone” 😕😉
  12. Ah, yeah now I see my error. One of these layers had a different blending mode than the rest. Hence the change in appearance after merging. Thanks though!
  13. Is there a way to merge layers with the same blending mode but different opacity percentages and retain the actual look/effect the different opacities had? Hope that makes sense.
  14. No news yet. But at least the problem has finally been forwarded to the development team after months of...nothing Someone mentioned that the use of custom brushes (Frankentoon etc.) might trigger the problem to some extent. There might be something to it since I also use more complex custom brushes. But the problem also occurs when I have a complex selection and paint in it with a very big and smooth standard brush.
  15. Has the destructive rectangle cutouts-problem repoprted here been addressed in any way?
