  1. Symbols not staying synchronized, things being duplicated, all without switching off the "Sync" toggle. In the attached screenshot's project file. I only have one symbol, the artboard of which is first in the project list. This is where I've been working, and for the most part things went smoothly. Things started to get wonky when I took the chromosome layer outside the "Inside" (Curves) layer. This hierarchy change caused it to be duplicated (three times?) and out of sync.
  2. Having independent blend modes for stroke and fill would be really handy. For example, I recently discovered the Erase blendmode, which is a godsend for not needing to manually expand and boolean things. Something I like doing is to give stuff padding by expanding the shape, "bulging it" in all directions, and then cutting that out of what's beneath, giving a sort of cell shaded look, but as if the outline is the background color. Being able to have the Stroke have an Erase blendmode would make this extremely handy and powerful, and I can imagine using strokes in "add" or "screen" blendmode for a sort of glowing outline.

    Grid artifacts on live blur filters

    Sorry about that, uploading the .afphoto file now

    Grid artifacts on live blur filters

    Uploaded! :)
  5. (Edit: Sorry for not specifying in the title but this is for Affinity Photo) The grid lines appear in the live preview AND after a full exported image. I watched them render and they are perfectly aligned with the render buckets. The effect happens with various "variable blur" filters, like field blur, depth of field blur, and lens blur.

    Referenced Colors/Styles

    Not really, you'd still have to go to each object and change it's color individually, unless it happened to be a symbol. Unless I misunderstand?
  7. Procedural workflow has and is growing and becoming a large driving force in content creation. Something I always knew would be make things very quick to iterate or change, and also keep things consistent and simple, would be referenced colors. So maybe your documents has a palette with named slots, and when you go to select a fill/stroke color, you can optionally select one of these named slots. Other fills or strokes can reference this same slot. Then if you decide you want to change colors later, you simple adjust this palette and every object using those slots gets updated. To extend this concept, it could almost be like symbols but for object appearance where you can have synchronized styles, that way all the parameters are shared, like stroke width, profile, etc.
