  1. Delay...not a problem I was beginning to think it was just me.....again!...just reported the bug and moved on...was not expecting an immediate fix.......I was relieved when @debraspicher came across the same problem. Thanks for looking in to the issue...I was struggling to source the cause or sequence of events. NB: Wacom updated their drivers!..eek! (6.3.32.3)..updated signature...
  2. Wow..at last someone else has seen this behaviour!...reported it some time ago but it's not frequent..I would not work out what was causing this .Except noticed that If you work with nodes and leave the app alone for a few minutes it can occur..reboot resets back to normal for me anyway! The report was for Publisher...here There is also a small movie there as well

    Bezier nodes difficult to work with

    Hi Sarah, Sean Interesting! I was just reading @Ben response to copying (cloning) nodes in the beta (mac section)..and playing around with it ...on a PC..nice feature! didn't know it was there..but you learn something everyday...However.... Sara's description of Bezier nodes 'jumping around' has just happened to me...I was thinking this issue was fixed as I had not seen it until today in the Designer Beta 1.7 version...but Steps to reproduce Difficult to describe...as is very infrequent and a reboot fixes the issue...so for experimentation try.... 1. Play around with Ben's marvellous feature... snap nodes to 2 different Bezier lines... 2. Toggle Snapping on and off (As drawing with it on can be a pain!) 3. Leave the screen alone for a few minutes (sometimes..and is it sometimes!) you cannot drag around the nodes they to seem to snap randomly...I am sure that is not the case.there must be some logic to it... 4. Then go back to moving the nodes around on the lines The report was for Publisher...here There is a video associated with it here I was wondering whether this could be the same issue

    New Brush Dynamics [1.7]

    I see what you mean about the spacing. I changed the brush dynamics to directional...getting some odd results now with spacing and size sync active on both sub brushes..seem to be able to control the master in terms f spacing but the size slider increases size of parent nozzle -for a while then scales the sub brushes down..When in sync I would have thought the nozzles/brush should scale proportionally but it does not seem to do that..maybe I messed up! Change the size on brush copy 4 in the edited version holiday garland_edited.afbrushes

    New Brush Dynamics [1.7]

    It is setting the size at 100%..that instigates it..I just came across it by chance...would not normally set size/pressure at 100%..so it would be for me a rare occurrence anyway.. 1. Create new brush...but usually I duplicate a previous brush (much easier as dynamics need less tweaking) 2. Add additional nozzles/change nozzles for effect 3. Adjust rotation (common 100% [not always case!]) 4. To create tapered ends. set size with 'pressure' to 100% graph is usually at slow build up.(concave) Made this brush today to test.... You are correct it does come back...... size test.zip

    New Brush Dynamics [1.7]

    Hi Sean, Thanks for getting back to me... Regarding 1: Yes sort of..you have to go back to the parent brush and adjust either the size or spacing to get the header (visual section to update)..it did not appear to be automatic...and then go back to adjust the dynamics of the sub-brush..Sometimes I had to go back to the 'sub-brush' and toggle the Sync checkboxes a few times to get it to register. Can be a bit of a pain They look to be in conflict with each other..where you have to adjust the sync to get to adjust the parent brush settings and vise versa Regarding 2: I noticed yesterday that with several 'sub-brushes' active....when you toggle between them (selected in list) the sync can get reset. to default i.e. re-selected...even though sync needed to be off so you can adjust the spacing and size of a sub 'brush' but when you go back (out of sub-brush dynamics) it can just turn itself back on! eek! Regarding 3: Sorry didn't make video for this..should have done...I will set it up when I get back to some testing...It was the nodes on the graph for sequencing additional nozzles as below..where it became difficult to move the nodes around on the graph...seemed to just stall..but it has only happened once so far... Regarding 4: Yes...I created some brushes while testing the new functionality..they are released into the resources forum Vegetation Set 3. added a couple of screen shots below with regards to appearance and the stacking order in brush panel...Eventually I uploaded 2 independent test brush sets sync and non sync as can get very different results with the brushes depending on how these are configured. (why I suggested adding to context menu in some form...you have to trawl through 2 dialogue boxes to get to them when you want to change the settings) with the screenshots below: Thanks for passing on suggestions.... Looking good though overall..... still no nasty crashes! and has so much potential....I like the ability to ultra control...but wow! so much variation available. NB: There were a couple of issues with 1.6.5 that I didn't report as Developers changing code base... a Setting size in brush dynamics to 100% could cause the brush to stop working and the nozzle to disappear just tested this one:it does occur in 1.7. so : Created new brush:adjust nozzles (added and extra one) rotation=100% set size at 100%=nozzle disappears from circle and you cannot paint with it..fixed by changing the graph option b..Occasionally the brush nozzle would revert to a small black square but I have not seen the black square yet (fantastic..hopefully fixed!) Maybe this should be in separate thread but while I am replying: 1. With vector brushes (new textured intensity) on my system at any rate....I cannot see the brush shape in the lower panel...it's just black! bit difficult to adjust start and end positions.. ..Same result importing 1.6 brush sets and creating a new category+brush in 1.7

    Vegetation Brushes Set 3 S [AD 1.7]

    Vegetation Brushes Set 3 S [AD 1.7]

    Thanks for liking the vegetation set The availability of brushes is expanding rapidly.....There are quite a few in resources now. The ones I personally have uploaded are only a small selection of the full library. Many of the Frankentoon brush collections are very impressive...I also like the new Grave Etcher set as well!...but still prefer to build my own... It will be interesting to see how the new Brush Dynamics functions develop...I personally was very impressed..even though there are still a few glitches!..It gives you a greatly expanded scope for developing/experimenting with brushes...You can almost control each nozzle independently.. and stack nozzles with multiple dynamic settings..nice! There are also extensive commercial sets developed by Agata Karelus and available on Gumroad You can watch the video of these in action here: Video Link I cannot really help you much with the issue in AF.. I haven't been using AP that much recently! been too involved with #inktober and testing Affinity Products...Bugs and glitches are the realm of the Moderators and Developers...You could always ask the question in affinity support. or raise it as a bug issue..I am sure you will get a response.. I know that in AD sometimes the brush switching can be a bit unresponsive..with a delay in changing the selected nozzle/brush but it's never really caused me much of an issue...

    Vegetation Brushes Set 3 S [AD 1.7]

    Hi, Yep...1.7 is new code base...The brushes were created in 1.7 Designer...really for testing the new functionality in the beta section Download the latest beta version of the software: here If you wish to use these brushes.. Or If you are looking for the brush equivalents for use in 1.6.5 ...They were created off a previous version: Original Brush Nozzles are based upon Poison Vegetation Set C There are 300 brushes in this section alone. The nozzles are unique to the Project brush sections The new set 1.7 testing only uses a limited number of nozzles. If you are looking for leaf type brushes you could try out: The vegetation Sets (1 ,2) as they are more comprehensive and varied. Vegetation Brushes Set 1Vegetation Brushes Set 2 and there is a full list here: Library

    Vegetation Brushes Set 3 S [AD 1.7]

    Fixed something that was annoying me! Now have 2 versions of same brush pack....added suffix for distinction in Brush Categories Added a version of brushes with Sub-Brush Nozzles synchronised to Spacing and Scale.. 1. Allowing flexibility in size of all brush nozzles (different result when active)...switchable in sub brush dynamics! 2. Nozzles scales with keyboard 3. Improves visual appearance of Brush Panel Vegetation Set 3_.1.7sync.zip
