  1. Hey @Hangman . Yes, the slider does work as your video clearly shows. However, I'm referring to the label, meaning the word "Corner". In other similar controls (the word "Opacity" in the layers panel for example) you can scrub the word and change the corresponding values.
  2. Unlike other controls in the contextual top bar, with a rectangle selected, scrubbing the label for "Corner" does not change the corner radius. Other control labels are working fine as far as I can tell. I believe this is a regression from 1.6, but I'm mostly relying on muscle memory here...

    Export of invisible layers

    Thanks @Sean P , I am aware of the icon next to the eye in the Layers panel, however currently these two icons seem to have largely the same functionality, and both cause the exported layer to behave as if the layer had 0% opacity when exported. So just to verify, you are considering this as a bug, right? It should be possible to export a hidden layer?
  4. As far as I can remember, in 1.6, it used to be the case that I would create a slice from a layer in the export persona, and then set the layer invisible. This would still cause the layer to export as intended but it will be hidden in the viewport. Now, in 1.7, it seems almost identical in behavior but the exported layer is completely transparent (but still sized correctly). The slice preview in the slices panel, however, looks fine. Please, if possible, bring the old functionality back!
  5. I have a repeating crash while using the Paint Mixer Brush. As far as I know, this only happens in opengl rendering mode. Switching to Metal seems to solve this for me. Sometimes the app will crash immediately at the first use of the Paint Mixer Brush, other times only while mixing 2 colors or after a very short use (always within less than a minute). Crash report attached: crash-87754.dmp
  6. Just updated to 1.7 - overall a really impressive update with many new useful features. Thanks! While playing around with it, I noticed 2 small issues: The icons at the bottom of the Appearance panel are nearly invisible on light UI. See image attached. The behavior of the stroke options "Draw stroke behind" and "Draw stroke in front" is confusing: Normally, it seems to implicitly override the order of fills/strokes as they appear in the Appearance panel. However, if I add another stroke it sometimes causes the stroke to move to the bottom or top of the stack, usually only after selecting another stroke in the panel. Overall I find the option is now obsolete since we have much more control over the draw order with the appearance panel.
  7. Nice! Thanks @GabrielM Is it expected to be fixed in the upcoming 1.7 release?
  8. Hey, This has been bugging me for some time, hopefully I'm doing something wrong but couldn't find anything so I classify this as a bug. Whenever I use the "Paste FX" option (Cmd + Ctrl + V) or "Paste Style" ( Cmd + Shift + V), the FX is pasted with a change in values. Reproduce: create a large circle and apply a 30px Gaussian Blur to it. create another circle, much smaller. copy the first circle (Cmd + C) paste FX to the second circle (Cmd + Ctrl + V) Check the second circle's FX, the blur radius is much smaller 3.34px I expect the 30px value to remain constant when pasting. To the best of my knowledge it makes no difference if I have "Scale with Object" checked or not in the FX panel. Am I missing a setting somewhere to control this behavior? Thanks!
  9. Actually, you are correct. Just tested the steps myself and couldn't reproduce this as well. However, after some fiddling, the issue did happen again, though it didn't increase the height this time, it lowered it. Here are the revised steps: Create a new file. use the template for iPhone 8 Plus w/ artboards. Select the Artboard and in the transform panel change it's height to something else (I did 700pt) File > Place... Select multiple images of the same width&height dimensions. Click “Open” Let me know if this replicates for you, otherwise I can try to send the files I use myself and a screen recording. Thanks.
  10. Hey, This is pretty weird, whenever I’m placing multiple images using the “place” file menu item, the images are imported with 10% extra height. For example, placing 5 frames sized at 100x100, become 100x110 in the app. Placing one image at a time does not produce the same problem. Steps to reproduce: Create a new file (FYI, I use the template for iPhone 8 Plus w/ artboards) File > Place... Select multiple images of the same width&height dimensions. Click “Open” expected: the images should appear in the app at their original size. observed: the images appear 10% higher then they were originally. Hope this helps to find the issue. Thanks!
  11. Hi Sean, Glad to hear you were able to verify the 2nd minor issue. Regarding the 1st minor one, I see what you mean and indeed, if I have something selected it unlocks the Area option in the export window. I find it confusing though, as I’m using a multi-artboard file and if I want to export one of them I need to slect something. To be clear, this is not the case with the desktop app. Now back to the title issue. I checked and I actually have “bilinear” selected as resample option. I also just created a new file to make sure it’s not some file-specific case, and it’s not. Here are the steps I used to reproduce: create a new file (800x600 web preset) draw a circle shape switch to the pixel persona With the circle layer selected, using a brush, fill the entire shape with a color. This will automatically create a new Pixel layer nested inside the circle. click the document icon in the top and select “Export”. Choose PNG and make sure Resample is set to Bilinear. Click OK (or share) and view the resulting image. expected outcome: the file as it appears in the app preview with no jagged edges. actual outcome: the circle has jagged (aliased) edges. I’m attaching this file as well for you to have a look. export-bug.afdesign
  12. Hi, When exporting an artboard on the iPad app on this file I have, the result has noticeable aliased contours. The desktop version does a good job exporting the same file, though. I think it has something to do with the fact that in this example, I'm exporting a (Curves) object with a nested (Pixel) layer inside (so it is contained inside the shape). I was not able to reproduce this with another artboard (same file) which has no nested layer inside. Also, I came into various other little issues with the export window of the iPad version: Sometimes I cannot choose an area to export other than the default "Whole Document" (greyed out). Seems I have to select an artboard first and only then the option becomes active. After choosing an artboard as an Area to export, changing the width/height acts funny - while the "lock aspect ratio" icon is active, it does not seem to respect it, instead changing the other value to some random number. After a few tries though, deactivating and reactivating the "lock", it does work. Thanks!

    New Icons Too Similar

    Really liked the old icons. Their silhouette was instantly recognizable as Affinity. The new ones lack that strength. Still hoping these new icon designs are just beta-specific, though if this is the case, the β badge of Publisher Beta would have been more fitting.
  14. Many suggestions here are for new features. I'd like to suggest the otherwise. It is my understanding that all Affinity apps share the same clever "viewing"/"backend" capabilities which allows them to open and render the same file format. The difference is in the tools each app provides to edit this content. This got me thinking of an app (maybe free?) that has no editing capabilities and only allows a user to open and view an Affinity file. Ideally this app will also provide some measuring and information tools, a color picker etc. I imagine 90% of the code for this is already exists. Many teams use hand-offs apps like Avocode or Zeplin, that allow developers to inspect files provided by designers. Having this tool actually be provided by Affinity, and open the real workfile could IMO really help organizations adopt the Affinity line of products. Hope you'll consider!
  15. Not sure if that's what you mean, but at the top bar you have a checkbox labeled "Lock Children". Checking it with the parent rectangle selected should allow you to scale it without causing transformation to any element within it.
