    Scaling Text on a Path in AD

    I think I got it. Carry on.
  2. 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.

    HSL UI Issue

    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

    HSL UI Issue

    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.

    HSL UI Issue

    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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I have experienced this same issue. Hope it's resolved quickly.

    Panorama with Affinity

    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.

    Panorama with Affinity

    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.

    Headshot Edit

    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

    Panorama with Affinity

    Welcome aboard! This is cool. What were your thoughts on processing time? I've not done panos in a long while and the last time I used Lightroom. I'm getting ready to shoot some HDR pano background plates (but not this wide) for some composite images I'm working on. I'd like to process the images entirely in AP if possible, as like you, have removed Photoshop (All Adobe) from my machines.

    Thank you for this true understanding of how this all works.
