  1. Thanks for the link @drkanukie 's hint to delete the release folder worked. Now I know what the first opening of the apps does.
  2. In my case, this two command is also grayed out in both programs. AD and APh both have version
  3. Thank you for your trouble! I couldn't see that the narrow road was interrupted. This method would be a bit cumbersome in practice (especially with thin edges), especially since there is no catch mechanism for it. You could draw the lines through and calculate with a mix mode (e.g. "Expose colors"). But this only works with black and white. Maybe I (or someone else) will find another solution. Until then I have to use my proven method for different street widths (see attached file). Stra├čen.afdesign
  4. Can you explain the thin lines (above) in more detail (step by step)? 1. Have you drawn the thin road in the same way as the wide roads ()? Unfortunately you can't see that. 2. Why did you create a C-level? (and not a normal one)? 3. Probably the whole thing doesn't work in "delete" mixed mode.
  5. Thanks for the explanation! But then there should be exchange formats. In other graphic applications I know the possibility to save a file in a lower version within the higher version. And concerning AD: Can the SVG format be used as an exchange format? After all, layers can be saved with it.
  6. I have noticed that affinity software is not upward compatible. For example, you can no longer open an AD1.7 file in an AD1.6 version. Is that intentional? If so: Can I install multiple versions of affinity software in parallel - for example, 1.6 and 1.7 side by side?
  7. This is a wonderful and efficient technique for drawing road maps. And the best thing about it: every single street can be flexibly adapted! But unfortunately it is not possible to create streets of different widths in this way.
  8. Thanks for the info! I only read in the Windows forums. That's why I didn't see this thread. Unfortunately @Andy Somerfield only talks about the highlights. But the whole filter has to be improved.
  9. Thank you for your trouble! Obviously such an (automatic) color correction was implemented in the old filter. Photoshop has a correction slider for this. The affinity filter should also have such a balance control. The value ranges of the filter are much too small. The old filter was more effective for more extreme cases (as can be seen in my example). And the Lights slider creates seemingly gray veils. My workaround until the problem is solved: For the time being, I help myself by using the Live filter in the "Luminance" mix mode. And I increase the filter strength by creating an opacity-controlled duplicate of the filter layer. But I can't imagine that this was Serif's plan.
  10. @Frozen Death Knight: I'm not quite sure what you're talking about. Can you possibly show this with an example? The filter is mainly used to brighten shadows and darken lights. This is the real challenge in the "Photo Persona". What do you mean by "real" colors? In such problem areas you can usually no longer speak of colors. For other areas there are better possibilities (e.g. gradation curves). Such image areas do not have to be tormented with this filter.
  11. Maybe someone can merge the two threads HERE.
  12. There's certainly a lot going on at Serif right now. But I would still be happy if a mod could comment on it. Will the filter stay that way now?
  13. Because the problem persists in version 1.7, I continue the thread here:
