  1. My apologies. Maybe I was not clear. I want temporarily hide the slice frames from the Export Persona view. I attach a screenshot, which may help to understand what I mean. It shows the overlapping slices. It is very hard to add more or adjust the current ones.
  2. It would be great if slices could be placed in folders (similar to layers in the Photo Persona) and unselected slices would be hidden from the canvas. In addition I would appreciate if slices could be copy and pasted from one document to the other. Background: I have images, where I need many overlapping slices. The image Export Persona becomes quickly very busy. It is almost impossible to keep an overview. My current workaround is making copies of the Affinity Photo file and and working with subsets of slices. If the first option would be implemented, the copy and paste functionality wou
  3. You see on the short movie, that, as soon as I reach S: tab starts toggling the studio.
  4. I create a second screen movie, which shows, that only R: to H: works with Shift-Tab. In all other fields nothing happens. For some reasons, it was inserted into a new post. Please see next post.
  5. I reported two issues. Which one works for you? I attach a short movie showing the second issue: the tab key does not jumb from S: to X:
  6. When creating a linked duplicate of a text object (this option should be also available via the right click menu in the Layers Panel), and unlinking "Text content", not only the text content is unlinked, but also all text attributes, such as color, size, typography styles and so on. I have also never been able to relink the text contents. When moving over the icon the mouse pointer changes to a curved arrow, but the text contents is not relinked. Anyhow, linked duplicates is a highly appreciated new feature!
  7. In v1.9.0.211 the Shift-Tab shortcut in the Transform Panel does not work as expected (tab back). In addition, the Tab key doesn't bring the user from S: to X:, what I intuitively thought.
  8. The Export Persona is one of the killer features of Affinity Photo / Designer, why I use this fantastic suite. I filed already a few feature request for the Export Persona, which unfortunately have not been addressed so far. But I will not give up... I would greatly appreciate, if a few features, which are already available in the Photo Persona, could be brought to the Export Persona. Grouping of slices (including the possibility to check and uncheck whole groups). The option to hide unchecked slices from the canvas. This would facilitate working with heavily overlapping s
  9. It would be great if Affinity Photo would add a few bulk actions for the Photo Persona: Create multiple slices of a certain size. Resize multiple slices with given x and y values. Convert (yellow) slices (created from item) to (purple) slices (created from slice tool) -- most important !!! Rename slices (this would be also a great addition to the Photo Persona). A simple renaming possibility (as in the macOS Finder) would already do the job. Add text before or after all exported slices. These bulk actions would help to save me hours doing the same action over
  10. I want to pick up this thread. Isn't it possible to bring these simple functions, which already exist in the Photo Persona to the Export Persona?
  11. The export persona is a great time saver! However, it requires some love, as there are a few aspects that could be improved. 1. When moving multiple slices coordinates are disabled (greyed out). Moreover, it is impossible to change the x and / or y positions manually. It would be great if multiple slices could be moved similar to multiple objects in the "Move Tool" in the Photo Persona. 2. It would be great if the option "Transform Objects Separately" from the Photo Persona would be also available for multiple slices in the Export Persona. 3. Finally, I am really missing an opti
  12. After it is this feature has been added to the move tool in the Photo Persona (see below, copied from the new features in v1.70), ... ... it would be great if this feature could be also added to the slice tool in the Export Persona. Currently, each slice has to be resized individually.
  13. Oh yes! The yellow slice exports ONLY the element, but not the background. If you hide the element your slice is empty.
  14. Export Persona: It would be extremely helpful if item slices (indicated in yellow) could be converted into normal slices (indicated in purple). Chris
  15. Yes, I am missing this feature almost every day. All workarounds have their limitations.
  16. I started the following thread some time ago: As there seem to be more and more people interested in this feature, I place now an official feature request: It would be awesome if you could implement a function, which allows resizing multiple existing objects individually keeping their current positions. Best, Chris
  17. I finally found that the export of x and y positions of slices is already possible. If you select in the Export Persona Batch builder: Spine JSON together with the slices a JSON file is exported. This file contains center x and y positions as well as the size of the exported object. With these information it is easy to calculate the positions of each corner. Interestingly (0, 0) is the lower left corner of the image, and not the upper left corner as in Affinity. It should not be too much additional work to add some export formats in easier readable format, such as CSV. Cheers, Chri
  18. Hello, it would be great, if the Export Persona could export a file (e.g. csv format) with the names and coordinates of the slices. Best, Chris
  19. Thanks to all of you! I am still not perfectly happy, but now I now, that I did not miss a very effective way. Chris
  20. Hi Affinity pros, I am struggling already some time with a supposedly simple problem: I have a photo of a wooden plane (see attachment), which was taken with flashlight. In the middle of the plane is a nasty glowing area. I try to get rid of that. When I try to reduce the glow the picture becomes either blurry or the area tends to become grey instead of brown. Any idea, what I can do? Thanks in advance for any advice! Best, Chris
  21. It would be a great help, if Affinity Designer / Photo could export information for slices from the transform panel (X, Y, W, H, rotation), e.g. in a CSV file. Chris
