  1. I like Alfred's suggestion. More information would be good, especially for new users, but adding descriptions and keywords makes it rather cluttered and as manu schwendener said, simply too overwhelming.
  2. Unexpected support for preferring printed manuals today at BusinessInsider.com in the Strategy section. Headline: "A new study shows that students learn way more effectively from print textbooks than screens" Partial quote: "Our work has revealed a significant discrepancy. Students said they preferred and performed better when reading on screens. But their actual performance tended to suffer. For example, from our review of research done since 1992, we found that students were able to better comprehend information in print for texts that were more than a page in length. This appears to be related to the disruptive effect that scrolling has on comprehension. We were also surprised to learn that few researchers tested different levels of comprehension or documented reading time in their studies of printed and digital texts." I realize, of course, that this changes nothing. Printed Manuals are not coming back. At least, not as included documentation. But those of us who prefer them get a little tired of feeling like dinosaurs for not thinking that digital is always better.
  3. I'd buy one for Designer and one for Photo. I doubt that I'm the only one who would.
  4. I bought the Workbook when it first came out, hoping it would work as a manual. Really didn't want to work my way through projects that I would never use just to find out how best to use the tools, so it's been worthless to me. Still wish it had been a real printed manual. Those I study; help files I go to only when stuck. Just stating my preference. No longer hoping for a real printed manual in either app.
  5. Thanks again, Carl. I was in process of posting the statement below when you beat me to it. But I always appreciate the helpful responses that you get on this forum. "Help was, as usual, helpful. By pre-selecting all the missing edges after a Rotate, I can use Edit>InPaint to inpaint all of them at once, rather than using the InPaint Brush to do each side individually."
  6. Ah, thank you! Now I can stop looking for something that only exists in a Persona that I seldom, if ever, use. Guess I'll go read the Help some more and see if it will tell me what Edit>InPaint is supposed to do and when. Edit: Thanks to both Carl123 and MEB.
  7. Okay, this is twice that the auto-inpaint function in Photo for the desktop has been mentioned. How do I go about using that? I'm using Beta 1.6.4 running under El Capitan and Edit>Inpaint is grayed out in the menu. I'm assuming that is how you find/use auto-inpaint, or should I be looking elsewhere? And what, do I need to do after straightening? Help, please.
  8. Wish it was fixed in Photo Beta 1.6.4 but it's still popping up at every Persona change just like always. Obviously not an easy fix or it would have been done already.
  9. There are excellent DAMs out there already. And some of us have invested some heavy bucks in them. I've been using MediaPro since it was called iViewPro and it still provides me with the all the "management" I need. Or want. I use MediaPro to manage my files; Affinity to process and edit them. Affinity may come out with an exceptional DAM at some point. If so, I will consider it but in the meantime, I'd rather spend my time using what I've got than whining about what I don't.
  10. Well, personally, I think what Affinity has done so far has been pretty "fab." And I'm only looking forward to the improvements they will make.
  11. Even on an iPad Air 2 and without the Pencil option, it is a powerful and much appreciated drawing tool!
  12. Ah! Overlooked that part of your post.
  13. It works, but erratically and incompletely. The only way I've found so far to get it to work as skiphunt wants is to Duplicate the layer, rotate and crop, then Rasterize the layer and use Current Layer and Below to Inpaint the transparent sections. Even then, it acts more like the Clone tool than true inpainting.
  14. That's what I'm doing too...now! I have also started immediately creating a Snapshot. That way, I can experiment as much as I like, then select the Snapshot layer in History and use Default>Revert under More to go back to the original state.
