  1. Glad there is an option to disable windows ink in version 1.8.2!!!
  2. Why did Affinity make it Windows Ink app?... Windows ink is the worst thing for anyone who wants to use a pen tablet/display. This was a HUGE downgrade. I have been working as an illustrator for 10 years, and the problems with Windows Ink were never solved. Unitl today you have to create a PSUserConfig file for Photoshop to work without the horrible Windows Ink system...Try to pick a color from the color wheel - oh you have to move the pen a few kilometers before it recognizes - Try to draw a line - oh you have to move the pen a few kilometers before it recognizes - Try to drag anything - oh you have to move the pen a few kilometers before it recognizes... It is just unusable. And before anyone says anything, I already disabled pen and touch gestures and bla bla... Wndows Ink is the most useless thing in the universe. First time I used Affinity Designer I was very happy that a new software did not use Windows Ink and had pressure working just fine. I could do my sketches in pixel persona, go back to designer to create vector shapes and go to pixel once again to add textures with THE POWER OF PRESSURE SENSITIVITY WITHOUT DISTRACTIONS... all in one software. Now I can't use pressure. I won't use Windows Ink. It will make my brain bleed. So I am going back to previous version. I don't want to use unstable beta. I mean, even you guys realized that some people (99% of the world) would not like to use windows ink and made an option in the preferences to turn it off. I will wait for it to come in a new release. Affinity apps are awsome! But what is most special about it is how FLUID IT FEELS. I canceled my adobe subscription in december because of Affinity. Specially Affinity Designer really replaces the need of Illustrator. For me, it is way better. And this FLUIDITY is one of the most important things about it. It is sooo important for the way I make my illustrations in Affinity. Windows Ink just kills it. Sorry for being annoying... I just really like Affinity Designer and I know you guys do amazing job on it. Are you guys going to release a patch update soon?? Thanks!!
  3. +1 This would be a game changer! I am getting used to the software, and the two things I already love the most is how fluid it is to draw filled shapes with the pencil and stabilizers; and the integration with pixel drawing which allows you to quickly shade the object with textures. But the fact that you can't close the shapes directly in the first stroke, really takes away from the drawing experience. Hope we can see this implemented soon! I suppose this feature would be somewhat easy to add, right? As you can see in the picture the path does not close with the first stroke. Even if you try to make the ends really close to each other. Cheers!
  4. Hello! Affinity Photo is a really good software (except for the constant crashes). But it still lacks a simple basic and very important feature: BRUSH OPACITY CONTROLLED BY PRESSURE. If this option is somewhere hidden, please tell me. Oh and I don't accept that using pressure for the "Flow" option is an alternative. Common guys, many simple and free softwares have this: Krita, Gimp, Blender, or simple and cheap softwares like Artrage. I know this software is not made for digital painting, but I don't use it for that. I use it for render post processing, which is the same as phothography editing. And opacity pressure is very important to softly change masks, to add a bit of overlay or color dodge. So, (maybe someone already made this request) my suggestion is to simply add an opacity pressure button, just like the one Photo already has to control brush size, right beside it.
