  1. Saying that doesn't make you the gatekeeper of the truth. Yes, you can have your opinion, and I can have my opinion and we both should respect each others opinions, but what you are doing is, trying to use the typical "i've been doing [WHATEVER] for 15-30 years, that means that my opinion is the only true one". That's not how respecting opinions work. You should go back to school because in you (motion) design course they failed to teach you that.
  2. If you aren't going to help, don't SPAM my thread.
  3. Thanks for replying, but everything you mentioned sounds just like a personal opinion. Sounds more like complaints than actual Concept Failure Highlights. Disclaimer: I don't pretend to be rude with my following statements. I just want to be realist. A tool is a tool. You use it, or don't use it. It's optional. The people who want it, and make use of it, they install it. The people who don't want it, or don't see any value to it, don't install it. Easy as that. Did I misdirect you suggesting the including of this tool every time the Affinity programs start? Because that's not what I proposed. As far as I know (wow long time I left Adobe), the Creative Cloud was NOT optional, we were forced to install it and use it in order to install/uninstall/repair their software. I'm proposing an optional and independent tool to handle installation/uninstallation/repair of Affinity software. And now that we are throwing opinions around, let me add a new one: I hate when I open a program and want to work with it quickly but I have to spend extra seconds while a popup appears letting me know there's a new update, and having to think "do I need this update now? Can I update later?" And then clicking the appropriate button. It generates me more anxiety than the one I already suffer. With the tool I'm proposing, we can, at a convenient time, open it, and then be informed of the new updates available, either for the tool itself, or for the installed programs, and decide if we want to update, repair an installation, or uninstall a program. And we can deactivate the notifications, sounds, popups, everything. That's all. To me it sounds convenient, cool, useful. And thanks for the compliments about my UI concept LOL. Wanted to follow Material Design but ended being minimalist, ditching shadows, and respecting Affinity's UI design patterns.
  4. It would be really nice to be able to create icons from Designer as in Gimp.
  5. That's exactly what I'm proposing here? I'm confused now... My idea is a dedicated manager app like creative cloud but for affinity programs.
  6. Update: Pőenda: Silly me. My apologizes. I'm lately confusing the forums. This thread was supposed to be in Affinity Photo forum. Second, I totally forgot that in Designer, Node and Pen tools are separate. What I meant with "For Consistency with Designer" it's that in Designer the pen tool is the main tool to draw vectors, so in Photo, if there's gonna be a Node and Pen tools, the common sense is to also set the Pen tool as default. (Maybe it was a bug in Photo where the Node tool was set as default even after I deleted all the settings from temp folder and installed Photo from scratch, who knows...) Last words, wow I always forget we can customize the Tool Box. I just added the pen and node tools separately! 🀯 You have been very kind and helpful. debraspicher: Just because you prefer things one way, or because you can't understand why someone needs something one way or the other, doesn't mean you can impose standards to everyone. In my former publishing agency, I used only Photoshop for everything, because, the smart people taking decisions in Adobe, knew how useful it would be to have the ability to work with pixels and vectors in the same program. We can even make animations and export to GIF in Photoshop. Almost all the basic vector tools are there. I never needed Illustrator. So my need of being able to work with pixels and vectors in the same program is not something ridiculous as you are making it seem, and proof of this is the fact that the primary vector tool is present in a pixel program. If the intention is only to work with pixels, they wouldn't have added the pen tool. Also, it has been proven many times how making masks with the pen tools is better than making masks with the Pixel Selection tool or Marquee Tool. In PS, we can even save the vector mask and reuse later (even there's a Selection to Path very useful feature). So, thanks for being helpful, "lol".
  7. Follow Up Vector Shape/Path From Selection is the feature I need more right now.
  8. It would be really usefull if AP adds Expand Stroke as in AD. I many times find myself working on photo editing for long time, but suddenly need to create a shape and use the stroke as a mask or something and need to expand it, so I have to send it to AD, select Expand Stroke there, and send it back to AP.
  9. I was gonna post about "Make Pen Tool the default instead of Node Tool For Consistency with Designer" and then I solved it my selecting the Pen Tool, and selecting Edit > Defaults > Save. Now Pen Tool is the default on this computer. But it would be nice, for consistency, if next version of AP comes with Pen Tool as default.
  10. UPDATE: 🀯😱πŸ”₯ My mind just blew up. It's already implemented in Affinity Designer!!! Affinity Photo... you're next! πŸ‘πŸ‘€
  11. This! πŸ™ŒπŸ”₯πŸ’ͺπŸ˜β˜•οΈπŸ†πŸ₯‡
