  1. The current algorithm will produce extra nodes on most shapes. I was referring to the misshaped curves on the example.
  2. Unfortunately this is our current result for small items. We are working on a better solution but until then I would use logical operations for your example above.
  3. In your example of a black object overlapping then the default for Affinity is to overprint black. This will leave objects underneath and is usually very desirable as it will mitigate any plate misalignment when printed on a press. Is this causing you an issue?
  4. We are still not sure if we will offer importing stories from PagePlus as the RTF format will give similar results for the features we will offer for version 1. Affinity Publisher V1 is unlikely to support footnotes, contents or indexes. Some of these features will be on the roadmap but not in the first release.
  5. If you leave it on Light UI and restart the App does it still look the same?
  6. Could you please try changing the Display acceleration in Preferences->Performance->Display to OpenGL (Basic) It maybe your GPU doesn't support the features we are trying to use with the new update.

  8. The preview doesn't show the mask, It shows the selection and what would happen if you created a new layer. Photoshop also has an option to "Decontaminate Colours" that would probably produce the result you are after. Decontaminate Colours actually produces a new layer and a mask with the new layer having modified pixels. We will probably add a similar feature to Decontaminate Colours in the future.
  9. The mask is just that, a mask. If you choose a mask and the original layer isn't altered then you will always get an outline if the subject is on a different colour and has an antialiased edge.
  10. The poster was asking why there was a white edge. I explained why the preview shows something different. You may be having issues with masks but the preview not matching the mask isn't a bug.
  11. The preview will show you the result of output "New Layer". This is the most appropriate. If you choose a mask then the white edge will be the anti-aliasing of the orginal image. This isn't a bug.
  12. Hi Tony, I have a feature suggest here if it's possible to implement in the next update.

     

    For the Tone Mapping Persona, is it possible to have the adjustments in layers after having developed it where it can be easily altered (like in the photo persona) it would be a great help.

  13. It's only a problem until we ship the 1.6 Mac version in a few weeks time. The iPad version is 1.6 file format and the App Store Mac version in 1.5. The beta is 1.6 though.
  14. Could you DropBox me one of your TIFF files with a white point so we can have a look.
  15. If we load a TIFF then it does't contain any white point data so we can't show an absolute temperature value. This should work for RAW files though,
