  1. BUG I don't see any use of "lock" on layers. If I'm working on 100 layers, and I've saved a few layers as references and locked them.. but if layer is selected and (not intentionally) and an Assistance will come and will say.. "HA HA HA... this time I have killed you " It does't even tell me that my layer is locked, I accidentally selected a locked layer out of 100 layers, and that is not preserved anymore. How to reproduce: 1. Create a document 2. Draw something on selected layer 3. Lock this layer 4. Select Eraser and Erase some part on the layer image 5. this layer will be unlocked by itself and A small Assistance will appear that " It should prompt that layer is locked and you can't edit it..

  2. Thank you for the tip, But couldn't find any "use" of this Assistance then. Because a layer is locked and I just don't want to get it broken, and an Assistance will come and will say.. "HA HA HA... this time I have killed you " It don't even tell me that my layer is locked, I accidentally selected a locked layer out of 100 layers, and that is not preserved anymore..
  3. Hello Sir, Once again i'm sorry if somebody has requested for this feature or reported this bug... but this is too important and annoying. The use of "Esc" key in very proper way... The default use of "Esc" is "don't apply these changes and close this opened command." suppose I've opened an image, and pressed "command+m" it will open Curve Adjustment, now there is no use of "Esc" you have to manually press "close" button.. but even if i pressed close button, or clicked outside that Curves Adjustment applies.. I've to manually select that layer and delete it. and the delete button on "Curves" dialogue box is un-necessary. Secondly, if I pressed command+t it will load a big box of text, and no esc works on it and one has to close that box manually. too annoying.. "BTW try Laptops and see how difficult it becomes to move full arm from keyboard to touchpad so repeatedly. Similarly , if I used erase brush or any color brush, it pixelate image without letting me know if I really want this to happen or not. This should first ask "If i really want to pixelate it or not" And if I press "Esc" it shouldn't pixelate the image so I could do that manually (after making a backup layer). Because there is no "smart" object option in AP, so once image is "not pixelated" it is already smart object and can be scaled up or down, but once it is pixelated, all information is lost and that can't be scaled up anymore. So there should be a "confirmation" dialogue instead of "you are already killed" dialogue. And there, where escape shouldn't close the box, it is totally ruining the system. in system preferences, if I accidentally changed anything.. the press of "Esc" not only applies that, but also closes that .. OMG.. what change did I do?.. Please make "Esc" to just go to Preferences's home view and remove the "close" button and change that to "save/apply". And "close" button here and "x" button on the top are same. if some change is made, the "esc" shouldn't apply that but go to Preferences's home view. This all goes to.. "MESH TOOL", "Transform", "etc" ... "Enter/Return" to "apply" and "Esc to Cancel" I hope these changes will put some ease in life..

  4. @Jowday and "Esc" is useless in Affinity so far, only works where it is not required. check my just reported bug.

  6. @Jowday .. you are right, there are many things yet to be done in AD and AP.... let see when we will literally be happy switching away form AI to AD!!!
  7. Hello sir, I'm so sorry if this is already request by other users, i tried to search but couldn't find if i'm searching in right way. Is there any plan for Mesh tool like we have in Adobe Illustrator. Please see the attachment. thank you Pardon again if i'm asking a duplicate question.
  8. Hello, I wanted to make an action, in that I need one text layer (entered by the user), and hit play (the action). This has to first convert it into smart object (Not available in AP) make it's different copies re-position them according to the shape apply different effects change colors as needed Distort them without converting them into "pixel" layers (Not available in AP) make one scaleable smart object now the user realises the spelling are wrong.. He only edits one text layer That will update all the text (Not available in AP) Current actions even't doesn't support assets, even if those are made during macro recording. Current actions doesn't allow me to change colors Current available distortion converts text into pixels and no return.. Thank you
  9. clicking double does step in one group and then to second and then to third.. but one sudden unintentional click on the canvas will take you to the great-grand-grand-grand-parent group. Should I share video as demo? ..
  10. While using drawing apps, most of the time you use keyboard with one hand and dont' leave mouse. But such keyboard shortcuts need both hands. while.. Double click to get in.. and escape or even double click outside of the child group should go to parent groups and so on..

    New future discounts?

    yup... missing after effects feel but can't afford adobe anymore.
  12. There are always many things called "bugs" and others "features" ... But if the feature is not working in positive way that becomes bug and vice versa.. So Please "by design" things are "only by design" when those are looking good otherwise we should update as demands. or at least privilege users to change only font's backgrounds . Thank you
  13. exactly.. i'm waiting for the update from Affinity guys.
  14. It is simple.. just select the line, and from change the end type to square.. select any of these. I hope it will work. for you
