    Michail reacted to GabrielM in Painting/filling on a fill layer   
    Hi both,
    Paining on a fill layer will work just like painting on a mask. They have a "built in mask" and will only take into account the greyness of that colour. So, painting with black will delete while white will reveal the fill layer. This works as designed. 
    Thanks,
    Gabe.

    It may be cheaper to customize the code than to change the help (including translations).
    I hope Serif knows how to do it, and it just doesn't have a high priority for her. The most Windows users intuitively try D&D first. They don't search first in any menu, especially since D&D functions in the opposite direction.

    Yes, of course, but it sounds like Serif does not consider this functional discrepancy to be a code bug. (I disagree; any functional difference not mandated by the capabilities of the OS should be considered a program error, in my opinion.)
    But if it's not a code bug, it must be a Help bug.

    Why didn't Serif assign this functionality to the Alt key? The Alt key is the traditional copy key.

    Michail got a reaction from Chris B in Alignment of the center of symmetry in stabilizer mode is difficult   
    If you are in Symmetry mode and have activated the stabilizer at the same time, it is very difficult to align the center of symmetry to an exact point. It seems that the stabilizer's inhibition mechanism is maintained when the stabilizer is moved.

    Hey Michail,
    I see exactly what you mean! I will pass this back to the developers to see if we could potentially look at disabling the Stabilizer whilst dragging that center node.

    Michail got a reaction from Colorado Tiff in Story editor - mandatory   
    No. The main reason is that you can edit the text independently of the layout. The text is not distributed on text frames, and you can write or edit the entire text without any disturbing obstacles.
    Whether or not you need this depends on how you work and on the type of publication.

    Hi Tumulte,

    This isn't a bug, but a design change in 1.7. It allows you to change your mind midway through the operation, for example if you started moving an object and realised you actually wanted a duplicate of it you don't have to release, undo, and then duplicate - you can just press Ctrl whilst dragging.

    Michail reacted to Chris B in Selection problems with the Refine dialog box.   
    Hey Michail,
    Thanks for the video—that is what I concluded from your first post but I needed to make sure.
    What I think is happening, is that the Refine button has absolutely no idea a pixel selection has been made by the Select > Colour Range command and this is why you are getting the red area over the whole pixel layer. The same thing happens if you make no selection at all and just hit Refine. 
    I'll check with dev and also provide feedback from the Refine functionality itself. Thanks.

    Michail got a reaction from walt.farrell in Elliptical Marquee Tool - selection vanishes   
    You can also use Boolean operators to combine multiple selections that have different edge sharpnesses. Therefore, the option must always be active.
    If you want to change the edge sharpness later, use the menu command "Select" -> "Edge sharpness".

    Michail reacted to walt.farrell in Embedded document still linked   
    Yes, that is the way that linking a document (PDF, .afdesign, .afphoto, .afpub, .svg, ...) vs an image (JPG, PNG, TIFF) currently works.
    By the way, if linked documents were changed to work the same way as linked images, when you make a change (step 5) it would update the original. It would not convert it to an embedded document with the local changes.
    It would be good to have a choice, for both linked images and documents, that lets the user determine (when the save is done) whether the original is updated, or whether the changes remain local, and whether the linked file becomes embedded.

    Michail got a reaction from Graymare in Missing transparency protection function   
    Unfortunately, there is still no level-based transparency protection function. Some tools like the paint brush have this option ("Protect transparency"). For other tools like the Gradient Tool this option is missing. This option should be independent of the tools in the layer panel and should apply to an active layer.

    @silvergelatin
    Yeah. I hold out hope that this will get sorted out before the next official release, but Serif have not published a roadmap of features to be built and so it's uncertain.
    It would also be nice if they would build in a pre-press studio panel that could preview color plate separations so that we wouldn't have to pay for Acrobat Pro to run prepress checks.

    Michail got a reaction from DAD in Affinity Publisher Dokument crash   
    Global colors can only be created in a document palette. Something else makes no sense, because global colors are referenced with objects within a document.
    I would also be happy if the symbols panel were present in APup. But there must also be motivations to buy AD.

    Neither do I . I am sorry that this word caused confusion. That's because of my sloppy translation. In German, both a temporal and a qualitative transition can be expressed with the same term.
    Of course, I meant the colour gradient. I changed it in my post. Thanks for the hint.

    Hello again Michail.  I've just tried your suggestion of, selection, new fill layer and gradient and it works very well for me.  This is all I've been trying to do since the start of my question.  Big thanks, you have eased my frustrations, regards Terry
