  1. 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 and over again. My best, Chris
  2. 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?
  3. 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 option to transform object slices ("yellow slices") to manually created slices ("purple slices"). I often need slices around objects, but the slices should be slightly larger than the object itself (feature request 2) and the exported slices should also export all visible layers (feature request 3). Currently, I have to create all slices manually, which is not only lots of work but leaves also room for errors. Cheers, Chris
  4. 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.
  5. Oh yes! The yellow slice exports ONLY the element, but not the background. If you hide the element your slice is empty.
  6. Export Persona: It would be extremely helpful if item slices (indicated in yellow) could be converted into normal slices (indicated in purple). Chris
  7. Yes, I am missing this feature almost every day. All workarounds have their limitations.
  8. 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
  9. There is another scrolling issue, which I have not yet found in other threads. The page zoom sometimes changes (pages zoom out) when scrolling through a document. I am using a 2-button mouse with scroll-wheel, which acts also as the third button. This never happened (so far), when using the trackpad for scrolling. Cheers, Chris
  10. 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, Chris
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. I came the problem a little bit closer: the crash only happens, if the font tool is activated. If I switch to another tool, the programs do not crash.
  16. kirk23, you are right! Selecting by tags would be even smarter than selecting by names...
  17. I forgot to mention: macOS Sierra 10.12.2 and the current versions of Designer (v1.5.4) and Photo (v1.5.1).
  18. Yes: the elements, which I copy with cmd + c and cmd + v, are groups with only two elements but one text layer.
  19. It happened with different files (but with similar content).
  20. Hello, I struggled some time, whether I should open a thread with this issue as I cannot provide a receipt how to reproduce the crash. But after it happened so often, I will do it anyhow. Affinity Photo (same issue with Affinity Designer) crashes, when copying an element from the layer panel, but only after working some time with the program. After a restarting the program everything works perfect. Saving just before copying does not solve this issue. The current workaround is a little bit inconvenient (but I learned to remember before copying anything): save the file, leave the program, restart the program, do the job. Anything else I can do to tackle this issue? Best, Chris
  21. Unfortunately symbols are current limited to <pixel> content. I tried to use symbols to do so, but it did not work for me: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/25963-ad-15x-symbols-scrambled/ :(
  22. This issue is still unsolved in v1.5.3. Any workaround? Chris
  23. Hi Vivian, thank you very much for the explanation! Is it possible to transform rasterized content into an image? Best, Chris
  24. Hello, I have an issue with the great new feature "Symbols". Attached you will find a series of screen shots, which illustrate the problem: ScreenShot1: let's start with a document with 2 groups: Background and Stop Pedale OFF ScreenShot2: make a symbol of Stop Pedale OFF ScreenShot3: duplicate the symbol. ScreenShot4: change the x position in the transform panel to another value (here 540) ScreenShot5: now everything is scrambled! The position of the first symbol moved from 260 to -15.2, and the positions of the child elements have also changed. Attached you will find an archive with the 5 screen shots and the test document. Best, Chris TestDocument.afdesign ScreenShots.zip
