    Hello Chris This is a very new laptop, Vivobook Pro 17 with a screen that supports ROMM. However, following your suggestion I tried out AdbeRGB, with the same result. On images where the tonal contrasts (as opposed to colour) are not so strong there is a lesser impact but present. Hope this is helpful. Michael

    Hello I attach a screenshot of what happens now using Tone Mapping. There has been a tendency for this kind of halo over several versions but it seems to have become emphasisied with the latest update. It makes the Tone Mapping facility almost unusable because there seems no way of avoiding or correcting it. Apart from this and some minor quirks the latest version is a joy to use Michae
  3. Both Design and Publisher fail to recognise my spanish keyboard sequence for @ which is ctrl_alt_2 @. Can this be rectified please? I have to enter it in Notepad, copy and paste. Michael
  4. Hello, it appears Publisher is unable to edit PDF files. Is this correct? Seems an omission. Michael

    Crop tool

    Please now see my added note to the release version comment on the same topic. This is caused by first requesting crop to opaque, which fixes the ratio, something that didn't occur in earlier versions.

    Photo crop tool

    I have now sorted out what happens. I requested crop to opaque, which now seems to fix the ratio, which didn't happen in earlier versions. If I crop manuallly from the outset this doesn't occur. It is easier to crop to opaque first and then adjust, so I wonder why this has been changed. Anyway, there is a workaround!
  7. The failure I noted with the beta version has now been added to the release update. I have edited my Beta on this subject with screen videos showing what happens

    Tone mapping fault

    Thank you
  9. The inpaint tool from the Edit dialogue is now less successful in that it doesn't conceal the selection boundaries and leaves evidence of its use. This was excellent on the last version. I'm afraid I'm reverting to the last issue
  10. There is another issue with panoramas in the update in that immediately they are assembled the adjustments dialogue disappears completely. How does one get it back please? This is in addition to the crop tool issue. This update is behaving more like a Beta.

    Tone mapping fault

    For some reason the 'natural' setting on the tone mapping box has disappeared. The selection starts with 'detailed'. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software now twice with no change to this. Suggestion please? It is fine on the beta! Michael

    Overlay erase brush

    Hello, I find it necessary to revisit this topic which I have set aside because I believed it might be my computer capability at fault. However, I now have a computer with core i7 8th gen, 12Gb memory and Nvidia G force and still have this problem with the overlay erase tool. It leaves much to be desired. A screenshot is attached. It makes a mess of cleaning the edges of brush overlays, needing constant scrubbing and repainting. Michael

    Scanning from scanner

    Thank you. I just used the Win10 inbuilt scan and fax but felt that graphics software should incorporate such a facility, especially as the Workbook for Design advocates the use of scans. Faststone and Irfanview I have used for many years. Wonderful software.
  14. A rather large omission from this type of software is the ability to import directly from a scanner. Surely this is intended at some time? Michael

    Crop tool

    The crop tool in the new beta appears to malfunction. Unconstrained works as original ratio. This occurs only when trying to crop a panorama. The panorama has to be exited to crop successfully. This doesn't happen in the released version. At present due to computer changes I cn't make a recording. Sorry. But I hope this amplification clarifies things. If I pull on the adjusters at the sides or top of the crop outline the whole crop moves to the same proportion as the original. To avoid this happening I have to complete the apply on the panorama and can find no way of avoiding it. This fault has now been added to the new release version, making panorama cropping unusable. I am attaching a screen video. However I can't see that it functions. Affinity Photo - 08.06.2019, 06_49.mp4 Affinity Photo - 08.06.2019, 06_49.wmv
