  1. Thanks guys. Since the bug seems to persist in the latest beta as anon2 mentioned, I won't take the time. For now I'll just have to wait and hope that it's fixed in a future release. Unfortunately, it's issues like these that continue to prevent me from using Serif products in place of errr... you know who. I am hopeful though and will check in with future versions, once released. I appreciate the feedback!
  2. Not sure if this is a known thing or if I'm just seeing it for the first time. MacBook Pro, running OS 10.14.6. 32gb RAM, Affinity Photo 1.8.2. When blending a layer using "Blend Options" this layer's blend is ignored once a life filter (gaussian blur) is applied. Nothing I do seems to correct this. Also, if you click on "Preserve Alpha" then turn it off... it doesn't actually turn it off and remains as though it was still on. Thoughts?
  3. Is there a way to have text which is on a path, scale like regular text when part of a group? I'll try to explain in detail here: I have a group of objects consisting of 2 text layers, 4 shape layers. One of the text layers is on a path forming an arch over my shape layers. The lower text is just normal text. These are all grouped together as one object. When I scale the group, all the layers, including the bottom text scale proportionately. However the upper text layer (on the path), this text does not scale at all.z Thanks.
  4. Hi MEB, Sorry for the delayed response. I wasn't aware of your reply until yesterday. To answer your questions: I am using a second monitor, but did not think to try dragging the HSL panel to the laptop screen. My displays are all set to their default resolutions and are as follows: Laptop - 15.4" 2880 x 1800, BenQ - 27" 2560 x 1440. Since reporting this issue, I have reformatted my MacBook Pro and reinstalled everything. So far I have not seen the issue, but admittedly have avoided Affinity Photo while working on client projects. I'll resume a heavy workflow now that I have some breathing room again and see if the problem returns. If there is anything else you think I should try, please let me know, otherwise I'll report back if the problem shows up again. Thanks! Danny
  5. Thanks @walt.farrell, I read the thread and didn't find much helpful info. In fact, if turning off Metal Compute is my only option I'll just not use the app. Turning off functionality is not a solution, it's a bandaid. This problem has been reported by others, going back to prior versions. I was hoping for an actual solution, or info on when one might be coming.
  6. Hey Guys! Has anyone else had an issue with the HSL UI? This seems to happen quite often but I can't necessarily repeat it, it just happens randomly. However when this happens, my only recourse is to restart AP. Pretty frustrating to say the least. Specs: MacBook Pro 15" (2019) macOS Mojave, V. 10.14.6 2.6 GHz Core i7 32 GB 2400 Mhz DDR4 RAM Radeon Pro 560X 4GB Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB Edit: Sorry, forgot to mention I'm using Affinity Photo 1.7.3
  7. Hi titch, no this is not normal. Please see my reply to your other post on this exact topic. Also note: you're not alone. Many have posted about this, and hopefully it's resolved quickly.
  8. Hi titch, I don't think this is something you can adjust on your own. This has been reported by multiple users on other threads and would seem to be a bug or some other developmental oversight. I'm running a 9th gen Intel Core i7 with 32GB RAM on a M.2 SSD HD and the "develop" function takes way too long, though not as long as some others are reporting. Hopefully Serif will address this soon.
  9. Hi Thors, In my experience so far... opening raw images in 1.7 is faster than 1.6. Editing a raw image is not only faster, but improved in 1.7. But, exporting (hitting the "develop" button) from the Develop persona seems to take ages, which is weird. 1.6 was considerably faster in this regard. I'm not sure why this is, and it has been reported in other threads. Hopefully this will be addressed soon.
  10. I have experienced this same issue. Hope it's resolved quickly.
  11. Awesome. Now did you stitch jpegs or raw images? In the past I'd use Lighroom to stitch a pano of raw images, resulting in a raw (DNG) pano which was awesome for editing. One of the only things I miss about Adobe.
  12. Cool. 2 hours isn't bad, right? I mean, it's not that bad for the amount of work you did to get to the final image. Was this for a paying client or for personal enjoyment? If a paying client, than I definitely think 2 hours is more than reasonable.
  13. For anyone wondering about when to or when not to critique, I offer this. It's pretty old in web standards, but the message and the messenger are spot on. I happen follow Joe Edleman's YouTube channel and he's a great resource for photo related info, I suggest you do the same if you're into photography. Make sure you watch the entire video, take notes if you have to as he makes some very important points. Note the bit about the science of cognitive psychology, and ask before you speak. Finally remember, I did none of this. I never asked for criticism, nor did I need anyone to approve or disapprove of my image. That was not the purpose of the post. https://youtu.be/-mgmkLzrvqc I'd also recommend this video from Sean Tucker, a great photographer I follow and support. His view is pretty much spot on about certain trolls errr... I mean members here. On that note, I should take Sean's advice in regards to how I respond to said individuals. https://youtu.be/FYNjKxv1Akk
