  1. Hello, I have just bought Affinity Photo, so please let me know if this feature already exists. What I'd like is a feature that Photoshop has where you can change the shape and rotation of round brushes to be ellipses in any direction or degree. The reason I ask for this is that I do some concept art and this feature allows me to have easy and time saving control over the perspective of the things I'm drawing. Although I think the Photoshop version could do with a lot of improvements, it's still very useful. I would also like to see the 'More' brush options appear if the RMB is tapped as this would save time, particularly if it incorporated the feature asked for here and I find it odd that nothing seems to be attached to the RMB tap. Am I missing something? Very neat software so far, I will continue to work around the issues until I find some solution. Thank you, Berbank
  2. Hello, I'm having some issues with selection using Affinity Designer. I may be using it incorrectly. I have a group with a number of layers and I want to select all the nodes in the group. At the moment I could do this by selecting the group, then opening the group and manually selecting every layer and using the node tool. Which is fine but seems a bit inefficient and a waste of time. If I select the object using the move tool, I can't then marquee select sub layers. I have to shift click and when there are a lot of objects this is impractical. Is there a faster way to do this? If not, could there be a an option on the layer context menu to select the layer and all the sublayers? Or, even better, a a marquee select for within selected groups?
  3. Hi, I'm giving Affinity a trial after years of Photoshop. So far so good but I have some questions about the brush controls. The main issue is getting a really soft brush. I drag Hardness way down to 0% but it's still much to strong for what I want. What am I missing? Is it not possible to create a very soft brush from the standard one that it uses on start up? I've also tried making a brush that has its Hardness controlled by pen pressure. I've had two results with this and I'm not sure why I got different results. The first time, the hardness did change with pen pressure, but so did the size (size toggle was off and size was not set tied to anything in the brush options). And the second time I tried it, with the same settings, but a different brush, nothing changed with pen pressure. Thanks for any help, Berbank
