  1. I have V1 and never use it because of this. I would immediately upgrade for V2 if it had it and was as thrilled with the measurement as I thought it meant a dimension tool. Coming here time to time just to see if this will ever happen.
  2. I'm on the same page as most. I dropped by just to say that measurements, areas and CAD import are great additions, but without real dimensions, area tags and angle dimensions I'm not going to upgrade to v2. I seldomly use V1 already and it's mostly because of the lack of these tools. I'm hoping you consider adding those. Congratulations on the release and best wishes for the future.
  3. OK. Let's see it as intended behaviour then. Not a bug. I would then request that the behaviour would take into account: A - That when nothing is selected, only the context of the selection would be considered as the scope for the "Select Same" filter, by default. B - That a second list/menu would expand the scope of the "Select Same" filter to a bigger context: selected object(s) context(s) (default), include all layer subgroups, include all parent groups, include all in current artboard, include all artboards. I feel that if we only had option A, we still could select everything we needed, in all artboards, by selecting an object in each, while right now we can't achieve a limited scope selection. Therefore, I think the way it was designed isn't the ideal and even if not bugged, it has an issue.
  4. I'm also getting very annoyed by this. I think it stems from my iPad having double language but Affinity Apps only support the system language. The secondary language fails to spelcheck correctly and Affinity ignores that it exists altogether. At the same time, while typing, spellchecking doesn't work for this secondary language. Something seems to be bugged.
  5. I've been facing this issue in iPad and it's really frustrating. Select same, within a certain context, should be possible. That context being a group as well as an artboard. It should have a toggle for refining the scope of where it affects the filter: Whole Document; Selected Artboards; Current Artboard; Current Artboard and all subgroups; Current Group and All Subgroups; Current Group; Selected Groups; visible objects on screen; hidden layers; select the same by curreng marquee (so many options that should be possible)... Besides that, "deselecting the same" should also be possible. We should be able to fine tune and filter out what we want to deal with effectively removing some objects from our current selection. Lastly, it does seem like a bug if the function isn't working as it should. Select same is picking objects in all artboards when that seems to be the least useful scenario. It's ignoring locked objects, it's ignoring the context we are at, it's ignoring our selection, and it's ignoring then it's either a bug, or a bad design option. I think I rather see it as a bug.
  6. Thanks Walt, It's rather strange that we cannot. Is it possible to convert this question into a Feature Request for the development team?
  7. I have several artboards and, inside these, several groups. I want to select all objects with same stroke, but I want the resulting selection to be exclusive to a layer group, inside current artboard. Designer, however, selects all objects with same properties on all artboards, on all groups. How can I filter out this isolated selection?
  8. Thanks for the tip Chessboard. It requires another frame of mind but it might be worth giving it a shot.
  9. It's really a frustrating user experience. I need to be able to see what's crossing the artboard boundary as well as what's fully outside the boundary. That ability allows us to fine tune the artboard boundary itself, if we need to. It allows several actions to take place. A simple toggle would solve this. Toggle on and you hide boundary crossing objects, toggle off and you see all objects no matter what positio they have to boundary.
  10. +1 I really didn't need slices at all in my projects so far. However, what I always need is layer states. I use Photo and Designer for architecture and turning on and off layers allows me to show alternative versions of the spaces. Different colors, different objects, different lighting... All images should be the same size, but featuring different stuff which is usually organized through layers. As we evolve the project these layers evolve, so having to repeat all the process of exporting and naming each new version of the image is tedious.
  11. I'd love to be able to scribble too, but thanks for the touching the banner tip. I was struggling against that for months and never occured to me to actually use my fingers on the banner as I always use the Pencil
  12. +1 I'm an Affinity Photo for iPad and Desktop user but I use Designer on iPad only. If I had this for Designer I'd go for it on the Desktop too for sure. It's really the only thing making me stand because, as an Architect I need this for everyday work and even if the vector tools I use are rudimentary compared to Designer, they allow dimensioning...
  13. It does not work on the M1 iPad with 2nd Gen Pencil either. It's actually very messy and a bit of a workflow breaker. Each time we try writing with the pencil it creates a new text item instead.
  14. +1 Architect using Photo for renderings. Could see myself using Designer and Publisher too if you'd support DWG, DXF and Dimensioning tools. I imagine a lot of other architects doing the same.
  15. the best solution for this problem really is Krita´s wrap mode. Hit W and see your texture tile to infinity. Affinity and infinity would have so much in common...
  16. Gimp and Krita have a Grain Extract and Grain Merge layer mode that allows us to average luminosity in an image without loosing detail, for instance. It's ideal for texture creation from photos, but it is applied in a lot of other workflows too. Is it possible to integrate them into Photo?
  17. Much wanted feature since I started with AP. Wrap mode is the main reason I'm keeping Krita installed since I got Affinity Photo.
  18. Hi all, first let me thank you for such a wonderful piece of software. I tested it during the Windows Public Beta, and now I'm here with a question regarding export persona. I am trying to setup my export persona in a way that I can export several different images from different combos of layers. My example is pretty simple as I exported a render with each light separated as an exr channel and grouped in layer groups: Layer Group 1 - Artificial lights; Layer Group 2 - sunlight; Layer Group 3 - Skylight; Layer Group 4 - Toned down version of the skylight so it becomes nightsky. I've set up my groups and blendmodes in such a way that I can export the following images by combining layer groups: - 1+3 - A dusk image with artificial lights; - 3 - Image with indirect natural lighting; - 2+3 - Image with full daylighting; - 1+4 - Night time image with artificial lighting. I can easily export each of these images using export, however I was trying to use the export persona to automate my layers combos so I can export them with a click of a button instead of going through the above combos manually. I cannot do the above. I can only select each group and create a slice but I would have to combine layer groups into another group so I could have the 4 combination groups and create a slice from each. However that isn't as nice or as clean as what I was trying to do because: - The original layered exr file is 2.9Gb; - I've duplicated a couple of layers for tonemapping and the Affinity Photo file is already above 3Gb; - so creating each combination of layers by duplicating the needed groups for the 4 settings above would make the file jump sky high; - It would also require me to duplicate my editions of each group. For instance, if I denoise the skylight, I would then have to denoise it again in every group where it's duplicated. So, how can I get the export persona to memorize a combination set of layers for export?
  19. I'm also always trying to do masks my way. I'm used to right-click on them to convert to alpha mask/adjustment layer in Krita.
  20. Agree, it's always nice to read the final pleasantries...
  21. Thanks Chris, What about create some separators for people with my (new all toolbars being shown) setup?
  22. @Jon P I don't prefer pt_BR nor pt_PT, and I didn't choose to run the software with the pt_BR version. Maybe Brushes is set to deafault to system language or the closest available language? My system is pt_PT, there is only pt_BR, but my option will always be en_US or en_UK.
