  1. The new 1.7.1 Update brings no performance improvement on my system. Metal Compute is still unusable.
  2. I always use my toolbox on the right side and it wont go behind when i choose fonts. This problem exists from the beginning and still in 1.7. Same in AD.
  3. With enabled 'Metal Compute' I get the worst performance on my system. The whole software gets massive slowdowns. Terrible stutters in zooming and moving a picture and in rendering and set live-effects. If I deactivate it, it makes no matter if I choose Metal or OpenGL, both runs relativly smooth, whitout stuttering and slowdowns. I hoped that 1.7 gets a performance boost, but sadly not on my system.
  4. I use the same hardware. First I also noticed the slow downs then I switched to this settings and got my old speed from 1.6 back. Did you try this?
  5. Maybe this is a strange bug, because the radius glider is back when I open files from the previous 1.6.* which has the Shadow/Higlight Setting. You can copy this old Shadow/Higlight layer from old files in a new 1.7 document. Curious but it works!
  6. If someone wants alternate icons, I made this in summer 2016. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/24004-affinity-icon-concept/ I don't know why serif didn't use their affinity logo just in different colors. But I like the new ones much better than the older.
  7. I have been waiting for this feature for so long and I do not know why this is not implemented. With the new 1.7 update many of my palette settings have been reset to default.

    I do not know if I say it correctly in English. The picture was taken in a well-known museum in Munich. With boring, I rather meant that already other photographers probably have snapped this perspective hundreds, maybe thousands of times. The original has no uniqueness anymore to me. The tree that I have photographed and planted there is a completely foreign object in this place and makes the photo simply differently than anyone could ever photograph there.

    Yes. But it's actually more improvised than thinking about what I make out of this 'weird' tree shaped by the wind. Maybe it's similar to the part of humans who just use nature and do not respect it properly.

    thx! There is nothing special, I used only a lightning filter on the tree and a gradation curve on the whole picture, lowering the shadows and increase the lights. And a bit gaussian blur on the borders. The painting is just a pencil brush. ...by the way, I really don't know what British humour is, I'm from germany and my english is very basic..
