  1. In situations like this, I would simply take your tile and just flip and rotate the tiles to make a repeating and symmetrical pattern across the wall. Usually, I can't be bothered to do it the correct way.
  2. See if this thread helps https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/80199-tables-weird-columnrow-functionality/

    Styles Shine

    Thanks just what I was looking for a few weeks ago Just one question, could all these objects not have just been placed in one document and you then just select the ones you like and Create Styles from them all in one go. Or is there a technical reason for having them all as separate files?
  4. You should/may be able to write a small macro that will do what you want
  5. Your X, Y, W, X values in the Transform panel are not whole pixels for the 2 curve layers in the compound Manually changing all 8 values (4 for each curve) to whole pixels should resolve the problem. If you are only seeing whole pixels in your transform panel go into preferences and set the number of decimal places shown to 6. When designing there are ways to ensure you only use whole pixels but how best to do that is best left to someone else that does this sort of work all the time, which I do not.
  6. We all have to learn what specific functions do and how user settable options can affect what happens when we perform certain actions. This is true for any new program we choose to install and is simply a learning curve. But once we have learned such things or have had them explained to us, it is not unreasonable to then expect us to understand what is happening and why. As regards drawing in the Pixel Persona doing nothing on screen but still creating history entries. This would also occur if we have our Opacity set to ZERO or the colour we were using was the same as the background colour. If we have history entries for when we use the brush and nothing happens on screen, it shows that the brush is working and thus it should be alerting you to the fact that something else is wrong. Be it zero opacity, wrong colour or forgetting to add a pixel layer By your logic there should also be no history entries if opacity is set to zero as nothing happens on screen. Anyway, nice discussion but I have some beers that don't know how to get out their cans so I need to go rescue them. I may be gone for a while.
  7. You can try this which may or may not help but will eliminate one possible cause Close Affinity Photo Navigate to.... %AppData%\Affinity\Photo\ and rename 1.0 to 1.0 old Restart Affinity Photo
  8. He or she should learn/understand how the program works and they would then know that the Assistant Manager will automatically create a pixel layer for them if set to do so. It is totally intuitive if you have set up the program options to work that way by use of the Assistant Manager. If you don't like/understand it then you can simply switch off the option in Assistant Manger and create the pixel layer yourself. Either way you will need to do 2 undo operations to remove the pixel layer, which is correct no matter how you look at it.
  9. If the Assistant Manager is not set to automatically create a Pixel layer for you, in order to use the Paint brush you would first have to create a pixel layer then paint on it, which is two operations, hence you will need 2 operations to undo it. If you elect to have the Assistant Manager automatically create a Pixel layer for you, you are simply choosing to reduce your workflow by automating the creation of the pixel layer. This automatic creation of the pixel layer should therefore not act any differently, as far as the history panel is concerned, to if you had manually created it. Basically you are saying I cant be ars*ed to create a pixel layer but I know I have to have one so do it for me - hence the need for an entry in the history for this action.

    Tab order

    I think it has been troublesome for a while for Mac users https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/79233-incorrect-tabulation-order/
  11. See this thread (I think) https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/83897-margins/
  12. Resizing and exporting can be done automatically with File > New Batch Job without the need for a macro. In the case of exporting to JPG files you can also set the quality/compression you want in the exported files The batch job function is useful if working with many files that all need the same output settings but if working on individual images one at a time it's not so useful or efficient. In those cases a macro would be better but as you have discovered you cant (at the moment) use any export commands in a macro

    Lost serial key

    More like a matter of bad customer attitude.
  14. If you have cropped the layer that is selected try Rasterising it
  15. For reference: If you click on the adjustment icon in the Layers panel you will not see any presets. If you use the adjustments tab/panel you will
