  1. Hi Murfee, thanks this is exactly the experience I made. The background color influences the outline / stroke. OK than this isn't a bug - its a feature ;-)' Thanks...
  2. Hi, there is no style applied to the text. And using the 'default' buttons made no difference. I recorded a screencast where I created a simple text and just by modifying the foreground color / background color the outline gets visible. If I set the foreground color (fill color) to 'no color' (which means I selected the small white circle with the red line in it) the issue gets clearly visible. Just take a look here: Screencast
  3. Hi, thanks for reply, but I never used any kind of stroke/outline for text so Affinity cannot remember this. If I use P to open the pen settings It shows a white rectangle with a red line in it - this means there is no stroke applied. But eventhough the text shows this kind of border - this is weird. May you can play yourself with the text. Just create some text (size around 48pt to make it clearly visible) and choose a font color from the settings bar at the top of AP. Then go to the right where the front and back color and colorpicker resides and choose a different color for
  4. Hi, In the attached image one can see that the text has some kind of outline/border in black where the text itself is green. The black color comes from the background color and the green one is the text font color. I just want to know: 1. Does the text per default has some kind of border/outline inside Affinity Photo? 2. Can I adjust the thickness of the border? 3. How can I get rid of this border? Thanks...
  5. I switched the video from SWF to MP4 and posted it on vimeo for easy access. (some browsers no longer support swf files) https://vimeo.com/224611657 So may someone from AF team could take a look and help me please?
  6. Hi MEB, thanks - I wonder what this function is for if we cannot set an arbitrary angle!?! Will this feature be added in the future?
  7. Thanks to all - that helped. (sorry for answering so lately)
  8. Hi bleduc and MEB, thanks for reply I found this feature now. But I don't have a trackpad. How can I rotate the canvas in arbitrary angle without trackpad? Any fixed angle is useless for me since I need to rotate my canvas to align eyes horizontally. Thanks for further help.
  9. Hi, I often use the refine mask tool to separate hair from background. I often need to switch between the different preview types like Overlay, Black matte, white matte, black and white and Transparent to judge the quality of the refinement. Using the mouse to switch between these modes is really annoying. Are there any shortcut keys to switch between these modes? Thanks
  10. Hi, sometimes it is easier for drawing if you can rotate the canvas (I don't mean rotate document!). Is there any way to rotate the canvas temporarily? E.g. using 'horizontal flip' function of the clone tool for portrait retouching eyes in a potrait. It would be very helpful if I could rotate the canvas to align the eyes horizontally. Then I could use the 'horizontal flip' function of the clone tool to easily clone the right eye to the left eye and vice versa. Currently I can get this only using the 'Rotate' function of the clone tool, but it is not so easy to get the right angle
  11. Hi, I use AF on my PC running Windows 10 professional. I want to eliminate the background behind a womans head. I used the 'Selection Brush' tool to get a rough mask on her hair. Then I hit 'Refine' in the top bar. I lined out the fine hair with the brush and let AF do the calculation. I switched to preview mode 'Transparent' and the quality was acceptable. But if I cklick 'Apply' to create the final refined mask then the result is no longer acceptable. :(. The area around thin hair gets a small greyish halo / border. But this halo / border was not present in the 'Refine
  12. Hi, I have two masks in my project. Each mask selects different parts of my image. Now I want to combine them to a new mask (add operation). Currently I only can do this by CTRL-selecting first mask and create a spare channel of it. Then select the other mask, go to channels, right click the previously created spare channel and choose 'Add to pixel selection' and then click the 'Mask layer' icon. These are many steps to just combine two masks. :( Why there is no way to just select multiple masks and by right click providing a feature to combine them as add/substract/exor? W
  13. Hi MEB, thanks for reply. Just to make it clear, I need it for Affinity Photo (Designer/Publisher I don't own). So again, is it planned for Photo as well?
  14. Hi, is there any update on this issue? When we will get reasonable UI for HiRes screens?
