  1. I am not arguing about this. But I am curious about how you and/or others would like to see this implemented and/or what workarounds work for you and/or others. IOW, I see this as just a discussion, not an argument. In that spirit, I wonder how close to the desired function the Recent brushes popup on Pixel layers in the Layers panel might be. It just shows the (final) pixel brush size(s) & thumbnail(s) of the brushes recent used, & it only does so for the current session. It does not show brush names so for instance it would be almost impossible to tell the difference among many of the built-in Pen brushes just from their thumbnails. It gets even more complicated when using pressure-sensitive input devices because so many different brush variables could be changing dynamically just in one stroke, & I don't see any obvious way for the thumbnails to show that, but maybe someone else has an idea how it could work.
  2. Since it could result in thousands of pixel layers, I doubt that many users do that, but for those that do it might be useful. But out of curiosity, since the brush size can be changed on the fly while using a brush, do you include the starting or final size when you name the layer? Also, how do you achieve effects like wet edges, blurs, & so on with everything on different layers?
  3. Wrote the text in an app that supports colored text, then copied & pasted it into my sig.
  4. On Macs, CMD+C (⌘C) is the standard keyboard shortcut for Copy & it works in the Affinity apps. New from Clipboard in the Mac Affinity apps is Option+N (⌥N). Those are the defaults so they should work unless changed to something else by the user. Also, holding down the Option key changes File > New... to New from Last Preset...
  5. What happens if you just click the Close button in the Upgrade offer window? As for the greyed out items in the menu, they are only available if a document is open, so try for instance the New menu item.
  6. I know, buty if they appear in the Apple picker window but not in one (or more) of the Affinity app's Swatches panel then that points to some issue with the installation of that app. IOW, it may help pin down the problem if that happens.
  7. Open the Apple Color Picker from the Windows menu & click on the Color Palettes button -- it's the third along the top, 2 over from the Color Wheel button shown in your screenshot. You should now see in the popup list that appears below that row of buttons the various system color palettes on your Mac.
  8. For me on my Mac it is in Preferences > Performance, just like in V1. It is easily found by pasting "precise clipping" into the search field in Preferences (which may be named "Settings" in other versions).
  9. Since in the Pixel persona many different raster brushes often might be used on the same pixel layer, that is not a very useful workaround. Besides, in the Designer persona for a curve made with the Vector Brush Tool you can change the brush type at any time to a different one by selecting the curve with the Node Tool & choosing a different brush.
  10. But the ON1 Effects app and/or plugin can do quite a bit that is either difficult or impossible to do in AP. That said, the ON UI seems far less user friendly than the AP one.
  11. OK, that worked, but it obviously does not work without adding /Applications/ON1 Effects 2023 to the Plugin Search Folders list manually, despite what the ON1 web site says about it automatically being detected. BTW, I had to do the same for it to appear in the 2.4 beta.
  12. Like I said, it did not work for me until I copied the plugin to the default folder. This was even though the installer said it had detected AP 2, it was not listed among the Detected Plugins afte restarting AP 2, & nothing related to it was added to the Plugin Search Folders list, if that was supposed to happen automatically. It only appeared after copying it to the default folder & restarting. Moreover, if I temporarily changed the plugin's extension in the copied default folder's version to something else so it would not be detected there, when I relaunched AP 2, as before it was not detected. I also noticed in your video that you had a beta version open & that the Plugin Support Folder list had nothing in it, not even the usual forward slash. I do not know if that makes a difference, only that for me it only works if copied to the default folder.
  13. FWIW, this did not work for me in V2 on my Mac until I copied the ON1 Effects 2023.plugin file into the AP 2 defaults plugin folder. I tried various combinations for the plugins support folder & everything else I could think of but the ON 1 Effects 2023 plugin would not appear as detected until I copied it to the default folder. Maybe I'm doing something wong but I can't figure out what it might be.
  14. Would not that depend entirely on what someone wanted to do with the image? So if you tell us what it is you want to do with them maybe someone can advise you about the best way to do that.
  15. Admittedly, it is quite confusing (at least to me!) but as I understand it, it is not a color picker, it is a hue picker. So its function is to set a range of color values that will be affected by the shift sliders in the selected channel set. The English language help topic describes it as selecting a "color family." There is also a video tutorial for the HSL adjustment. Although unfortunately it does not demonstrate the use of the picker it may be helpful in explaining how the hue value combines with the other two color parameters to define the range of what the adjustment sliders affect.
  16. That isn't strictly true because AP can open a document made in AD that has artboards & saved in AP, like in this simple 2 artboards in AP.afphoto file. (It's V2 so you can't open it but I'm sure you get the idea.)
  17. Where do these presets come from, how would they be used for different sites, & what file format are they in now?
  18. Please explain in more detail what you mean by "Canvas" the open file. It might also help to correct the typos....
  19. @Jmorales, just curious but why did you say you have a PNG image? Your AD document looks like it is composed of a collection of vector (curve) objects, not a raster image like in a PNG file.
  20. If you mean the Layers panel, then personally I do not mind that it shows the filter & adjustment mask icons when they have been altered from the default. I just wish that if reset to the default they would no longer show, or alternately that they always are shown, indicating that they are built into those layer types.
  21. The built-in mask can't be removed (because it is built in), but perhaps there should be an easier way to revert it to full coverage (IOW, nothing masked out) and maybe to have it hidden in the layers panel when that is done (so it doesn't have to be ignored)?
  22. Technically, you can't remove the builtin masks for layer types like adjustments & filters that have them. You can either use the method @Old Bruce suggested or a paint brush to reset them to fully opaque.
  23. Works fine for me on my Mac using the CMD key, so I think it should work for you with that key if you are on a Mac or with the CTRL key if on Windows.
