  1. Hi, According to the help topic Transforming Objects, under "To transform a selected object about a specific point", using the Point Transform Tool: While using the tool, the Transform panel changes functionality to report distances (ΔX, ΔY), scaling percentage (S) and angle (ΔR) pertinent to the current transform. As far as I can see, the panel does indeed change, but the distances, scaling and angle are not updated: they stick stubbornly to zero. The tooltip does update, but doesn't display the delta values. Screen Recording 2019-04-20 at 13.00.22.mov (AD, Mac OS 10.14.4) Cheers, H
  2. Thanks Ben. Maybe the help file needs modification, as the Transform panel does not 'report' these measurements. While using the tool, the Transform panel changes functionality to report distances (ΔX, ΔY), scaling percentage (S) and angle (ΔR) pertinent to the current transform. Cheers, H
  3. Gentle bump: not fixed in
  4. Hi, I've just been reminded to update to .118. But the update panel doesn't display the full number of the version I'm using at the moment: Cheers, H
  5. The Inpainting Brush is destructive. I suppose if you wanted to keep the original dusty scratchy image then you could use a live filter.
  6. As an example (and to cover my earlier embarrassment): I have an intractably stuck piece of dirt on my sensor which shows up as a dark mark in plain sky backgrounds. I could get rid of the mark using Dust and Scratches by creating a Live Filter layer, adjusting the settings until the mark is no longer visible, then inverting the Live Filter layer and painting over the mark in white: Screen Recording 2019-04-14 at 09.00.23.mov However, for a quick fix I reckon it's probably more effective to use the Inpainting Brush - certainly fewer steps.

    The crabs say hi...
  8. "Does not seem to work" could be open to many interpretations. As far as I can see: With 32-bit RGB images, both Live and Destructive versions of the filter are disabled (greyed out). With 8-bit and 16-bit RGB images, the filter has some effect at low tolerances but doesn't add what I would consider to be dust, scratches or both: Screen Recording 2019-04-13 at 10.27.26.mov (the video is 16-bit Destructive). Similar effects with LAB colour - haven't had time to test this, or CMYK, or checking and unchecking the Channel Tolerance button. (I have Metal enabled - haven't tried the other way.)
  9. Oh for AppleScript...
  10. No, that was a single manual resize. I too tried running it as a macro, without success: the recorded macro resizes any image to the same absolute dimensions. As far as I can see there's no way of automating this, but I may be wrong. I agree that it would be very useful.
  11. You can do this in Document - Resize Document. Make sure the proportions are locked, then multiply one or the other by 1.1: Specify DPI and resampling options and click Resize. Rinse and repeat...
  12. In Designer: place the image, crop the image, click inside the image to ensure you are using the cropping tool, then drag: Screen Recording 2019-04-05 at 21.41.32.mov
  13. Hi, The "Colour" and "Gradient" tabs of the pop-up generated by clicking the colour swatch in the Fill and Stroke sections of the Appearance panel are semi-transparent, allowing the underlying document to show through, while the "Swatches" tab is fully opaque. This is inconsistent with similar tabs generated by clicking the contextual toolbar or the Colour panel in Studio: all of these are fully opaque. The video shows the effect in Light mode, but it's similar in Dark and Default OS modes too. I'm running MacOS Mojave 10.14.3. appearance panel semi-transparent.mov Cheers! ADD: this is linked to the "Reduce Transparency" setting in System Prefs - Accessibility - Display. When this setting is checked, the background of the AD panel is fully opaque. It's still inconsistent with the other panels, though I suppose you could argue that in fact it's the other panels that aren't respecting this setting in System Preferences.
  14. Hi, Just tried the Affinity Monochrome Photos extension. The Sharpening control doesn't seem to have any effect (or if it does, it's too subtle for my poor old eyes to detect). The same control in the old 1.6.0 extension definitely does modify the image. Cheers!
  15. As @fde101 says, 32-bit applications do run under Mojave, although I can't myself check the performance of your versions of Acrobat Pro or Illustrator. One thing to consider, though, is that if you're using the Mid 2009 MacBook Pro listed in your profile, it's not Mojave compatible. Even Sierra and High Sierra won't run: I'm pretty sure El Cap is the end of the line. I don't know if it's any help but there's also Markzware FlightCheck. It's not free, but it looks a bit less expensive than PDF Toolbox. I haven't used it myself.

    Place Image Tool

    Could well be. There's a Place Image tool in Affinity Designer (below is the beta, but it's in the release version too):

    #103 Filter - Voronoi - Catbug

    Yes, seems to be fixed for me too
  18. Sorry if this has been raised already but I'm not getting any result when using the Saturation control in the Develop Persona: Vibrance, Contrast and Clarity work fine. Saturation control in develop persona.mov
  19. Ah thanks, confirmed that it works for me with DA's output set to 16 bpc.
  20. FWIW, I just accidentally discovered that Cmd+. (hold down Command, type a full stop) returns from full screen to normal, at least on my machine.
  21. Hi, Same happens to me with a Panasonic .RW2 file (build The thumbnail orientation in the Navigator is correct. Same with a .jpg shot just afterwards: The .RW2 file is attached but the .jpg is failing to upload. Let me know if you need it and I'll try again. Cheers, h_d ADD: applying the tone map does not result in a rotated image. The issue appears to be with the thumbnail display in the tone mapping presets panel. _1160491.RW2

    #103 Filter - Voronoi - Catbug

    Just to update, I've updated to build and with Metal Compute enabled, I've still got the same 'half Voronoi' (or in some cases 'no Voronoi') issue, along with occasional display corruption in the Colour palette after applying the filter. It works fine without Metal Compute. Still on the same 2012 13" MacBook Air (Intel 4000 graphics). I'm getting an upgrade soon though
